or is it because of extreme income disparity, or is it because of children growing up without father figures/role models?

That report is rife with inaccuracies. First, 'crime' per capita is the measure they should use so as to take into consideration the population. Secondly reported cases does not necessarily mean that a crime has been committed. The measure should have been convicted or indicted cases. Lastly, are we talking about petty crime or murder cases or robbery? What classifications of crime are we talking about? Molesting a chicken may not be a crime in certain parts of the country.

Lack of father figures and loss of culture are to blame.

Solja, you are correct that these are absolute numbers. Comparative to population concentration, the story may be different. I am not in denial that this part of home has high crime rate. There are many other factors that to look at to explain the situation. In regard to absolute numbers, it is what it is.
