"Hellhole Haiti" not as Violent as Peoria
I have watched Haitians for 25 years.
I have seen them walk incredible distances up rocky mountain roads, carry their sick neighbors to the doctor on their shoulders, sit in immobile traffic crammed inside of large stagnant trucks, and find their baby's bed empty when they visited at the hospital.
Haitians are not near as anger prone or violent as Peorians.
The homicide rate in Peoria is about 15/100,000 per year.
The homicide rate in Port-au-Prince is about 5/100,000 per year.
Figure that out.
