That's exactly what I did - Ronjanec and Trump argue that crime and terrorism matter. I agree. I argue that the statistics give us no reason to pin these things on Syrian immigrants. Actually, others had made the same argument in this thread before me, but without using the word "statistically", which doesn't change the fact that those arguments were of the same nature. So BiV can take your advice to heart. I'll take it for what it's worth.

Everyone? Not me - I'm rather persuaded by numbers. Or are you just speaking statistically? :)
