Here is a Suprise

In terms of the percentage of the population being victims of violent crime each year how does America stack up against Britain, France and Germany?

Here it is.

You would never know it from the media would you?

I would've suspected as much since Europe outlaws guns but like you said you'd never know it listening to the MSM. Great link!!!

Very interesting. All we seem to hear is how enlightened Europe is. Great numbers to back up that argument.

This guy uses statistics like a drunk uses a street light. That is, to prop himself (or his bias) up and not for the light that they shed.
I have been to several European countries and they definately have lower crime. N.O. has such a low crime rate now beacuse half the population is gone.

SR- Now that Steve Yzerman is no longer in hockey, what do you think about a "draft #19 to run for Governor" campaign? We KNOW that he can lead, right?

tim I wish the Redwings well and do cheer for them when I do watch them, but am far from a fan, as I really don't follow hockey. The Pistons on the other hand.... (And they had that very disappointing finish)

Having lived in Europe, I'm not surprised.

Happy Independence Day!

I believe the stats.... it makes sense given where they get most of their immigrants from.

Actually, I've read quite a few articles over the past few years which decry the climb of violent crime throughout Europe. Gun control laws, indeed self-defense-as-a-crime laws seem to be as big a culprit as the Muzlim invasion.

I think some folks missed one of the thrusts of the article - how America is being portrayed and how off-base it usually is; Leftists and the MSM being the usual suspects in the misinformation.
