You dont half talk poncy.

Its like stats on the number of tarts in the city 100 years back. No one really knows. Stats only show who gets caught, not whos doing what.


You're saying that the UK government actually has no idea how many black people are in the prisons that it runs?

Perhaps you can explain why blacks are so massively overrepresented in British prisons.

Care to offer any explanations for that fact?


I'm not defending Sam, because I actually think she has been quite rude in this thread. But this is all I could find Prison Stats

84% of prison inmates are white males according to this

Though, black and mixed race are more likely to be stopped, and be given harsher sentancing. They are also more likely to be living in poverty (a main factor in certain types of crime) and therefore not be able to afford good representation...

I think we've probably all heard the stories of 'stars' who get caught doing something, they get the best lawyers money can buy and get away with it

Nope. You have a way of putting peoples backs up that seriously gives me the hump. Isnt it clear I said that who gets caught doesnt always reflect whats actually being committed? I really thought I'd said it clear enough babe.

So what are you trying to say, then?

Are blacks overrepresented in prison or not? Do blacks account for more than their share of crime or not?

Please back up your answer with information, as opposed to simply saying "trust me."

Thanks/

Im not saying 'trust me'. Im saying what my knowledge of it is.

You're trying to say that prison stats are the same as actual crime rate on the streets right? I'm saying its not as easy as that. Ninozara gave you some good reasons why not.
