Good point... isn't most of their cash tied up in multiple machines?  What... did the robber demand the workers (if there were even any, many are unmanned) go machine to machine and empty the quarters?

Yes, I know it's Maine, but we already established that Maine was peaceful and mostly white. But I'm saying is that if being white is what it took to be peaceful, then Hawaii shouldn't be number eight on that list.

Yea! Washington is the 7th peaceful state. "The state also has a particularly low incarceration rate, with just 269 prisoners per 100,000 people(1). Homicide rates in the state are also relatively low(2)." 

(1)...excluding those in jail for marijuana possession, including state-legal dispensaries personnel under federal indictment

(2)...excluding those killed for their own good by law enforcement

Your comments amuse me. Personally, I could give a damn who commits more crime. Lock up who does. I was compelled to comment because of the typical "wonder why Detroit has more crime, ohmmeter" and "what really you insinuating here" type comments that fill up these threads. In regards to my area, there is maybe 15% black population, and it appears through all local media, and carryout crime mags, that a percentage of that particular 15% is committing 90% of the crimes. Take it as you will.

One out of every 40 people in Maine holds a CCW. On top of that, you can legally open-carry just about everywhere except federal property.

Except for junkies looking for Oxycontin and vandals stealing copper from empty buildings, you just don't risk it.

FWIW, Maine also has a 95% non-minority population, and the 2nd oldest population in the country.

From just a couple visits to Maine, my impression is that it's peaceful because it's cold, white, underpopulated and full of potheads, including a large "aging hippie" demographic.

SuperNinjaToad: Singapore crime statistics Link

HHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Singapore has the same advantage as Hawaii: Asian persons, percent 94%

To quote the Institute for Economics and Peace, The report considers five categories - separated into three groups - to calculate the United States Peace Index for 2011. The first group includes rates of violent crimes such as robbery and aggravated assault, as well as the rates of homicide in each state. The second group relates to the institutions used to prevent violence and is measured by the number of police per capita and the number of incarcerated residents per capita. The third includes the availability of small arms
. . .
Finally, in a perfectly peaceful state, citizens would have no need to own firearms for the purpose of self-defense, and therefore there would be no ownership of small arms.."


The Australian Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) has published their 2012 report. Maine is still the most peaceful state in the U.S. (for the 11th year in a row), Louisiana is the least peaceful. The Northeast continues to be the most peaceful region with three of the five most peaceful states. Too bad IEP has a "left-wing" agenda leading them to ignore some factors and over-emphasize others.

That line alone throws the entire report into question. It's probably one of the dumbest things I've read in a while. Before you try to rip into me for being a paranoid, right-wing, "Obama is coming for my guns" lone wolf or something, please just read that sentence and think about its content.

Maine caters to gay tourists. While it is possible for gays to be violent criminals the rate at which it occurs is probably down there with soccer moms.

Maybe the reason that states with similar demographics, such a Montana, are more violent is that they are not gay friendly states.
