Nonsense Watch

Via Hindustan Times, Delhi is not an 'unsafe city': Police chief

Sure. If you believe this, we have a bridge to sell you real cheap!

The chief says:

"The rate of conviction in rape cases is around 20 per cent which is higher than cities like Dublin, Berlin and Vienna. The law is suitably made and the guilty are being punished by the criminal justice system."

A 20% conviction rate is hardly something to brag about, is it?

Yes you are right. Also, how can a high conviction rate make a city inherently safe?
