  • Well I don’t know where you got all this stastistic, and I know for a fact that Honduras has the highest crime rates in the world! Oh and where can I find a accurate stastistic because this is not a stastistic for 2007 is a stastistic for 2005. Meaning that El Salvador is not the highest at this point of time, It may have been the highest back in 2005 but a lot of stastistic says Colombia is the highest; and you are sitting here saying El Salvador is the highest! Sorry but this is not accurate, and yes their is crime mostly gang killing other gangs..
