Mexico is a big country with lots of people and most of them are very friendly. The USA is a more dangerous place by almost any measure unless, of course, you are in the drug trade since most of the violence in Mexico is aimed at them and not at us tourists.
Where in the world do you live that you think the USA is a more dangerous place? I have been to Mexico quite a few times and enjoyed myself quite a bit but there have also been very heavily armed police/soldiers around. I can tell you that I have never been on a US beach and seen a soldier walk by fully armed on patrol.
