Given the comparative sizes of the US and UK your first correction is not as important as you think it is. Crimes per however many people is a much better indicator. Given that there are slightly more than 5 times as many people in the US than the UK more total crimes is to be expected. I'm not claiming that the numbers in the post are accurate, just that your total crimes number is fairly irrelevant.
