Twice in the past few days (Lou Dobbs this morning + one other time a few days ago by someone else, but I don't remember who) conservative commentators have asserted that Arizona now has a crime rate equal to that of NYC.  That seems unremarkable.  I'm sure there are many places with crime rates that equal or exceed NYC's...Detroit, Richmond, St, Louis, Atlanta, maybe.

It would only be noteworty if there was an equal amount of total crime, nest-ce pas?
