Crime figures misleading
An extra two million violent crimes a year are committed in
A former Home Office research expert said that across all types of crime, three million offences a year are excluded from the British Crime Survey (BCS).
The poll caps the number of times a victim can be targeted by an offender at five incidents a year.
If anyone interviewed for the survey says they have been targeted more than five times a year, the sixth incident and beyond are not included in the BCS. The authors of a report by think-tank Civitas said the five-crimes limit is "truly bizarre" and "misleading".
What possible reason could you have for capping the number of crimes committing against people? It seems to me that the government is deliberately lying to us to stop us from knowing the truth – that they are increasingly incompetent when dealing with crime.
