Of course. This is the only way to fight the crime.

Probably the same reason as most come... the working conditions are so much better compared to third world countries...

Certainly, the sit down jobs are much safer...

The same is true for the courier drivers... much easier work compared to this

I could answer your question about my vested interests, but I find it far more interesting reading other potential solutions that could address this problem - perhaps you have a few ?


I've got it . . . more people in jail . . . it works elsewhere . . .

Wow, this cut and paste stuff is easy...

This particular one is actually very nice if you confront it with what I posted earlier:

Considering the statistics also include statutory rape.. the figure should be MUCH MUCH MUCH higher for Australia. Our teens lose their virginity very early these days.

I was thinking more about India in this case. Very low rape rates per capita, almost at the bottom of the list. Likely only a small fraction of such crimes gets reported.

Probably not reported as they are betrothed by their parents at 6 so go figger! They're are just sampling the goods. That and the fact that women are chattel and not much more than second class citizens in lots of areas so why would they report it.

That's your problem, HG, you looked at this thread as humour! :)

Dammit we both loose to Botswana who beats us both :cool:. That said finding it real hard to believe after living there for 2.5 years and having one of the few computers with internet running around. Alamak, it was me and my Aussie genes that caused the crime wave...

Btw from the same hallowed information resource:

With those stats, I now know why Indians around the world have a chip on their shoulders and thinks everybody hates Indians. IN the words of Fox & Skully,

They don't like themselves very much so if they don't like themselves, it figures that they would think the rest of the world doesn't like them either! Looks like this thread just ended. They only have themselves to blame!
