Now Reporting Scotland LIES about violent crime RISING when it FELL
by Talking-Up Scotland | 26 Feb 2019 |
This is the latest in a series of lies by Reporting Scotland on, for example, gangs, knife, crime, obesity and hospital infections. I’ll summarise in the next post today.
Last night, Jackie Bird opened confidently with:
‘Violent crimes, excluding sexual offences, has risen in Scotland over the past year.’
Reevel Alderson, looking quite uncomfortable, then quite hesitantly repeated the lie:
‘But I suppose the headline, of this snapshot is, as you say, that there has been a rise in non-sexual violent crime.’
Yet, in the introduction to the Police Scotland report, we read:
‘Overall violent crime is down 1.6 per cent however Group 1 Crimes (non-sexual violent crimes) have increased.’
What has happened here? Well, both have missed something important out.
Also, see loads more BBC falsehoods…
