Ranked 2nd. Ranked 1st. 82% more than United Kingdom

Then how do you explain this? Japan vs. US
http://www.nationmaster.com/compare/...d-States/Crime
Total crimes committed provided at the bottom of those figures divided into the entire population yields those percentages I derived.

Edit: Japan would be 2,853,739 crimes/127,817,277 (population) = 2.2%
