A nice guy living on Maryland St. in inner city Winnipeg with no gang ties has less of a chance getting thugged than some part-time high school dope dealer living in North Kildonan.
There is no denying that is a fact, but these stats don't say that isn't true. What they do say is that a pt hs dope dealer has a better chance of getting rolled in Winnipeg then Toronto, and a average citizen has more chance of being mugged in Regina then Vancouver.
Don't read more into then is there, and don't argue apples and oranges.
