 If the graph were to include an 'origin unknown' category to account for reported but unsolved crimes, it would likely dwarf every other category and would immediately illustrate how incomplete and unreliable the rest of the data is

The data is reported crime. Nowhere in the article does it say that any of the cases reported there were solved at all so it could and i'm very sure the graphs do include unsolved crimes that have been reported. Not solved, just reported. Also thank to the law of probability, while we can not determine how many lawbrakers there actually were and who is precisely the one doing the most crime, graphs are a very good depiction to get a rough idea of the situation. That's what all graphs do. They're not 100 percent accurate but they help paint a somewhat reliable and conclusive picture. When somebody would like to do an opinion poll in a country based on a certain event they don't literally ask the entire damn country about it

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE, INCLUDING THE HATERS AND THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA! 2019 WILL BE A FANTASTIC YEAR FOR THOSE NOT SUFFERING FROM TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME

Not Even the most self centered dictator in the world would have the guts to say something this egotistical and self serving

Aren’t Western feminists lately championing Islamic women’s garb like the hijab?

Listen buddy, i don't know what feminists you've been seeing but as a egalitarian myself i can safely tell you that most feminists do not praise the hijab or niqab as empowering to women

Is this really happening? Like i am legitimately stunned by the unmatched incompetence of this man. This is what a 3 year old child who doesn't get the toy he wants does, not a supposed leader of one of the most powerful countries in the world

What are you people talking about? No seriously what are these right wing people on about? Bernie Sanders a socialist? Have you lost your damn minds? He would be considered center left at most if he was a politician in Europe. And as someone who grew up in a socialist/communist country (Yugoslavia to be specific) i can most certainly tell you that Bernie Sanders doesn't even come close to our own Josip Broz Tito and mind you Tito was one of the more easy going socialists

You know you'd think that out of all the people in the world it would be conservatives who want to slow down global warming. Do you have any idea what the scale of a refugee crisis cause by global warming is going to be. It'll make 2015 look like a walk in the park

Posted in: Trump rejects findings of U.S. government climate change report See in context

I don't understand these people. Not Trump mind you, i know his Koch brother buddies sure appreciate him for this but what i don't understand is all the morons in the comment section. Like you do realize the 97% of scientists believe in man made climate change right? So if experts who are experienced in this are tell you that there's a problem, there is a problem. If a cop told me "This is a restricted area, don't cross" I'm not gonna be like "Well that's what he wants me to believe"

Okay, and this guy is supposed to be the ultimate businessman? Are you serious? This guy wrote "Art Of The Deal" huh? Well if anybody knows even the slightest thing about business and how to run a business you would know that a good businessman stays calm and collected under pressure, not throwing insults at his opponent. Trump is turning more and more into a toddler crying for a new toy

Posted in: Trump hardens stance on Mexico border; says 15,000 troops could be sent See in context

Okay so i've been hearing this being called and invasion over and over again. An invasion. Guys you do know what invasion actually means right? You know, a large mass of people from another country taking over your country. You know, Like Germany did to France in WW2, you know, stuff like that. I'm not so sure you can call this an invasion considering that when the immigrants get to the US border they will apply for citizenship legally

Oh boy here we go again. Let me guess because at this point this has become so predictable for the United States that you can make a chart of it. People will give their condolences to the victims, then well see debate after debate after debate on gun laws and in the end the US will do nothing, because you're too afraid of the NRA and gun lobbyists

Oh, without a doubt. Bolton, the man, the legend is the best. There is speculation that he might take up the position, but it’s just pure conjecture at this point, but if he were to get the position, he’d definitely be the best one.

Yeah, sure bass4funk, Bolton would be the perfect choice. You know with his failure in Iraq, continued failure in Afghanistan and at some point even threatening to invade Iran, i can't think of anyone more perfect for the job. While you're at it, i think you might want to pick Richard Spencer as a foreign policy minister

Good for her. Her silence allowed a lot of people to manipulate and claim that she was on their side. Now we at least know where she stands and she shares the same dislike for Trump that most people do. Granted this still doesn't make her music any better but i'll take what i can get

The theory of human-caused global warming is one of the biggest pseudoscience scams in history

Okay good sir, let me explain it to you. Global warming or climate change as it is the more logical name to give it does happen with or without human intervention. That is true. Climate change would occur whether we're involved or not. However we, with our massive carbon footprint are speeding up the process of climate change. We're lowering the years we have to live just so rich a-holes like the Koch brothers can be even more rich. So yeah, climate change would happen regardless of how we behave but we can at least try to delay it as long as possible by reducing our carbon footprint

"Trump is far and away the most dishonest US politician in recent history."

Wrong. He's far and away the best president in decades if not in history.

The best president in US history? I think Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan would like to have a word with you Serrano

okay one of two things is happening here. Either Trump was honest about this and this is a slip up the American people should really worry about. Or he was joking in which case this is the worst joke ever told in the history of humanity since there was no punchline and no delivery

While i do not agree with this man,like at all, he has a right to deny service for any reason he deems fit. Wanna know why? because it's a privately owned business. That means it's his place so he can chose to server whatever and whoever he wants based on his opinions. it's just simple logic really. I don't even understand what the big deal here is. just go to some other place to buy cake for Christ's sake

A very difficult thing to prove. What’s your evidence for saying this?

The fact that there were multiple instances of Muslim women trying to sue against laws like this. From France's band to Australia's ban

Posted in: Denmark bans Islamic full-face veil in public spaces See in context

The government shouldn't dictate what a person can and can't wear. If a woman wants to cover herself up, that's her choice. And we've seen that Muslim women like to wear these garments and are ( for the most part) not forced to do so
