Does Maine, Vermont , Connecticut etc. have the least crime/murder rates because the population is mostly white?

    That may be a factor, along with the generally well-armed population.

    Connecticut actually has pretty high crimes rates given its diminutive size. But Maine, Vermont, I'll add New Hampshire, have low crimes rates because they're sparsely populated and there's little population density. Fewer people usually means fewer crimes.

    No, it's because ME and VT are relatively rural and because VT and CT border liberal NY, unlike IL which borders conservative Indiana.

    No. Because the citizenry is armed.

    Connecticut, however is disarming its population, so the legislature can feel safer, as it imposes removal of constitutional rights.

    They don't have the lowest murder rates. New Hampshire does. Connecticut is 14th up from the lowest. Vermont is sixth up from the lowest. That means Connecticut and Vermont aren't even in the bottom 10%. Maine is second lowest. The states with the lowest murder rates are the most sparsely populated states. You can't murder someone when there's no one around to murder.
