What Drives Latin America's Astonishingly High Murder Rate?

Except for actual war zones, Business Insider reports Latin America is the world's most violent region.

While no single thing explains why there's so much bloodshed, there are several factors common throughout the region.

Latin America is home to about 8% of the world's population but has about one-third of its homicides.

In 2016, that meant some 400 homicides a day, or roughly 146,000 a year.

But the bloodshed is not evenly distributed.
