The second post you link to basically repeated previous assertions while failing actually to refute any of my points. It even admits that the UK rate of violent crime is six times higher if you go by the government categories that it criticizes me for not using.

You seem to think that whoever posts last, wins. I can understand that if the arguments are too involved for you to follow, but I'm not interested in posting just for the sake of getting the last word in.

I guess whether your points were refuted is in the eye of the beholder. You yourself have posted that your accounting is dependent on drawing an equivalence between assault in the UK and aggravated assault in the US. I've read the definitions and it's clear to me that they're not remotely the same, and so my conclusion is that your accounting isn't worth shit.

And that's fine. I'll keep thinking that until I see evidence to think otherwise. You've said that simply repeating your previous line of argument would be a waste of time. On this, we agree.
