If Jacksonville was as densely populated as Paris, there would be 350 murders per year instead of 130.

Actually, it would be closer to 70.  Paris has a murder/attempted murder rate of 7.1 per 100,000 - and that includes terrorism murders/attempted murders.

Yeah, but Paris isn't Jacksonville. Jacksonville's murder rate in a city the size of Paris would mean an increase, not a decrease.

If Jacksonville were inhabited entirely by French citizens, we'd still be shelling out public subsidies to keep the Jaguars from moving to rival London.

Not likely. The French prefer basketball and soccer. And snails.

That assumes you don't believe the urban form plays a role in human behavior.  I think it does.

So...to be clear...you are arguing that the size and other "urban" characteristics of Paris are DIRECTLY responsible for the lower crime rate? Seriously?

What would you say about other cities - cities larger than Paris - that have higher crime rates? Or cities larger than Jax that have higher crime rates?

Wouldn't it just be easier to admit you misunderstood the comment?

Mexico City is denser than Paris. Clearly this means it has a lower crime rate.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?
