    This is becoming tragically routine — the police are getting too used too responding to these shootings. Sad.

    “Bermuda is averaging approximately one murder every 27.5 days so far in 2010.”

    To help you understand how bad that is, I converted that to the statistic used to compare all of the countries of the world: murders/100,000 population. Assuming 60,000 population, that is 22 murders/year/100,000 population. Where does Bermuda rank in the world? Bermuda is the 16th worst in the world. Worse than Puerto Rico, better than the Dominican Republic.
