Thoughts about the victimization methodology.
At first, I thought the victimization methodology would be a valid way to determine crime statistics. But then I realized what's going on in those studies. You're asking these liberal people in foreign countries if they feel victimized. Surely, you can see the tendency for error that will result. But, I thought, what's a better way to do it? Small crimes have a tendency to not be reported or over sensationalized. But, murders don't. Our police force is pretty good about counting bodies and no one can claim that they "felt murdered" in a survey.
If we're going to look at one statistic to determine crime, it might as well be murder.
