And we wonder why trigger-happy Texas has the highest city-level rates of violent crime in the union. Murder, assault, armed robbery, rape, kidnapping, car-jacking, burglary, and militia activity are all highest or among the highest in the pious state of Texas.


Most of the high crime rates are in the larger cities of Austin, Houston, and Dallas, where most people voted for Obama:

Bush won most of those, cities, but then again he had the advantage of being from Texas. Austin voted for Clinton twice.

This is typical everywhere. Big cities with lots of encroached poor people are where the highest crime rates exist. You've got a new theory I guess.
