Wall Street Journal; more murders in Belgium than in US? Wrong!

leave a comment »

On the 22nd of august, renowned journalist and neo-conservative columnist Bret Stephens wrote an editorial (“The Many Faces of Belgian Fascism”) for the Wall Street Journaal in which he stated:

“Belgium’s per capita murder rate, at 9.1 per 100,000 is nearly twice that of the U.S.”.

After some websearching, this figure proved utterely wrong.

This blogpost has been moved to my new blog, you can continue reading about Stephens’ factual error there.
