A lot of words to say basically nothing. There are a lot of people using the subways and as such you'd expect a higher number of incidents there.

Top five states in terms of murders per 100k population have routinely been Louisiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi and South Carolina. They're usually in the double digits. NYC's rate was 5.5 last year.

The spike in crime is cause for concern, but let's not pretend there's been some precipitous decline in safety.
