Operation Anvil

Latest homicide map is linked here.

Overall goal: explain why the Americas have such low rates of successfully prosecuted murder compared to EU and APAC.

And why - as murder rates declining - are solved murder rates declining in the United States?

For a quick summary of the state of homicide within the United States:

  • http://anepigone.blogspot.com/2013/01/rates-of-unsolved-murder-by-state.html

To start: where are the murders?

Latest homicide map is linked here.

Next, I want to map stories to these cities. Later, add more data sources (eg, unsolved murder data).
