South Carolina Most Violent State in the Nation, F.B.I. Says

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Despite the fact that the murder rate in Greenville County has held steady in recent years, the violent crime outlook for much of the state is not nearly that good.

The FBI reported Monday that the state of South Carolina has the highest per capita rate of violent crime in the country.

He said many criminals are blaming the current economic situation for their choices.

"They have actually said it's because of the economy -- that they are out of work. They can't find a job. They have to put food on the table. They can't pay for rent," he said.
