Leaked memo: No internet until you clean your bathroom, Ecuador told Julian Assange

The US has the highest incarceration rate of any country in the world yet also the highest crime rate in the OECD

Crime RATES or total number of crimes? The US undoubtedly has higher murder rates (absolute and per capita) with only the OECD's Turkey giving it a challenge on a per capita basis, but its rates of property crime (burglary, mugging, theft) and assault are less exceptional on a per capita basis. The UK, for example, has higher burglary and robbery per capita than the US.
