Both are a secret, b.
That would be much appreciated.
Basically you're saying the murders in Chicago should be proportionally bigger since it's a bigger city. OK, good point. What you keep forgetting is that HUNDREDS more people get k!lled there. Proportionally or not.
I did a little math with your numbers (and the cited Chicago murder number: 599).
Newark, with 280k and 97 m: 0.03% crime rate
Chicago, with 2m and 599 m: 0.02995 % crime rate
Looks like they're on par exactly, b. So your point about Newark being more dangerous is null and void.
New York, with 7m and 850 m: 0.012%
Either your numbers are off or New York really is safe.
and your point saying newark cant fu*k with chicago is null and void. as you proved it to urself. and new york is really safe but as you can see since new york has +8,000,000 pop and chicago +2,000,000 its weird for new york to only have 850 murders to chicago's +500
