Number Of US Troops >>>> Number Of Crimes By US Troops
In the engineering world, a symbol like, T >> 0 means "for Temperature much greater than 0" and applies to equations for a specific range of values. For the military, it means that teh Number of troops is much greater than the number of crimes commited by military personel.
The ratio of crime to troops over a 19 month period, is one criminal per 2,373 troops. That's all crimes, varying from petty theft all the way up to the horrible crimes of rape and murder. Of violent crimes, there were 21 violent crimess over the course of 19 months in a population of 140,000. That's one criminal for every 7,368 troops, IF each crime was a solo act (which I highly doubt all were)
Comparing that to one of the top 10 places to live, Ann Arbor, MI, they had 1,476 crimes that in the military would be tried as higher crimes, with a population 20,000 less than the troops in Iraq. One of the top 10 places to live in the United States, has nearly 100 times the violent crime rate of our United States Military. On top of that there were another 2,282 non-violent crimes. But liberals hate the troops, and would love you to think that all military personel are murderous thugs, and are the scum of society.
How ironic is it, that the truth is quite the opposite.
Let's look at the liberal capital of Santa Cruz, CA. A city with a population of only 55,000 but a crime rate over the past 19 months of 503 violent crimes, and 3,162 non-violent offences. Now extrapolate that to a population of 140,000 and there are 1280 violent crimes, and another 8,048 non-violent offenses. A criminal rate of a whopping 1 out of every 17 people. And a violent criminal rate of 1 for every 109 citizens.
Now after seeing those statitics, who would you rather have for a neighbor?
