As the list is from 2013, that would come down to 3,888.88 homicides p.a. Taken against the number of white South Africans (4,586,838 as of the 2011 census), this comes down to 84.78 murders per 100,000 whites p.a.

Homicide statistics from other notorious areas to compare against:

  • Chicago (current): 23.8 per 100,000
  • Chicago (1992, peak): 33.7 per 100,000
  • Costa Rica: 11 per 100,000

I would call being 2.5x as likely to be murdered as in peak time Chicago really terrifying.

Thanks for putting it into perspective like that. A white South African farmer (or a 4year old white girl) is more likely to be murdered than a police officer in SA.

I think I rather take my chances fighting in Fallujah.
