    I wonder if New York doesn’t recognize some of the same act as a crime as in Florida.
    higher amounts of thefts vs lower. Smaller amounts of drugs than higher amounts.

    @BillT. I was surprised at your assertion that the New York crime rate was lower compared to Florida, so I googled the crime index for a city by city comparison and got NYC (229.7) and Pensacola (341.0). Seems like you are correct. Still, I wouldn’t trade living here for anywhere else.

    Actually, New York has a lower crime rate (both property crime and violent crime) per Capita than Florida.
