It's been a couple of decades since I've been to DC (sigh), but as I recall next to the Apollo 11 capsule there was display with a small moon rock--set in plastic so it cannot be easily removed with about a square inch exposed--that the visitors to the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum can touch. I think that the explanation over the rock said that it was from Apollo 14 (maybe? I'm pretty sure that it was not from Apollo 11).

Considering that the US's population is probably 10-100 times what the other countries have, that's not really saying much. Serial killers per capita would be more accurate.

You are aware that India and China are on that list? :p

Although with all the scary human waste that goes on in those particular countries, it wouldn't surprise me if serial killers are getting away with it a little more. At least the rich ones.

But since you asked, I googled the population numbers:
