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