And you are being misleading is your statistics.... the U.S. population is like 6 times larger than the UKs.
Another fact about European countries is they are vastly more homogeneous than America. In the UK 87% of the people are Caucasian with the next highest population group being Black with 3%. In America it is 63% and the next highest group is 17% and the next 12%. This results in much greater cultural differences... also not to mention the Geography of America is vastly different than that of the UK which is on its own little island.
For example African American's account for over 50% of all murders in the US from 1980-2008 even though they represent only 12% of the population.
The combination of greater population totals, different cultures and ethnic groups, and geography makes these to Countries completely incomparable in that respect.
