Scotland's murder rate

From the Guardian: Scotland has second highest murder rate in Europe. Another depressing report on Scotland's crime rates (top for violence too).

Another study from the University of California, to be published later this year, will claim Scotland has a higher homicide rate than America, Israel, Uzbekistan, Chile and Uruguay.

So, statistically, I'm less likely to be murdered here than in Edinburgh? Don't think so, matey...
