    This is pure propaganda, Forensic Technologies Inc (a private company) sells ballistic identification technology, finger print recognition technology, etc. and Chile and Uruguay are among it’s clients.

    Chile and Uruguay have higher crime 40,263 than Argentina. And Costa Rica seems to be the safer place in the world ??? may be there is nothing to steal there??? Can that be the answer?

    Costa Rica:
    Total population: 4,253,877
    Total crime: 40,263
    Crime Rate: 0,0094

    Argentina:
    Total Population: 40,913,584
    Total crime: 1,340,529 cases
    Crime rate: 0,32

    Chile:
    Total Population: 16,601,707
    Total crime: 593,997 cases
    Crime rate: 0,035

    Uruguay:
    Total population: 3,494,382
    Total crime: 134,010 cases
    Crime rate: 0,038

    Canada: 33,487,208
    Total Population:
    Total crime: 2,516,918
    Rime rate: 0,075

    I just wonder how countries with more crime per capita are found the most safer place by Forensic Technologies Inc. May be they include and offer of “statistic a la carte” when purchasing they products.

    NicoDin, I wish you would apply the same rigorous thought in your analysis of the Falkland issue...

    1. NicoDin, seems your United Nations data confirms the article. Can't you read your own post? Argentina has the highest crime rate: 0.32 is MORE than 0.0094 or 0.038... Learn your maths! High crime rate is BAD... low is GOOD...

    @Matias

    You are right there is a typing error I forgot 1 zero haha.

    The exact figure would be for Argentina 0,032

    So here the list with the correction:

    Costa Rica:
    Total population: 4,253,877
    Total crime: 40,263
    Crime Rate: 0,0094

    Argentina:
    Total Population: 40,913,584
    Total crime: 1,340,529 cases
    Crime rate: 0,032

    Chile:
    Total Population: 16,601,707
    Total crime: 593,997 cases
    Crime rate: 0,035

    Uruguay:
    Total population: 3,494,382
    Total crime: 134,010 cases
    Crime rate: 0,038

    Canada: 33,487,208
    Total Population:
    Total crime: 2,516,918
    Rime rate: 0,075

    The formula is quite easy C (Crime) / P (Population)= x ratio.

    #6 ! Mercopress seems as an “ article compiler”..
    these are not their own original article ,nor have own authors !

    for all I see, the Brits commenters exploit this infirmity !
