Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm sure that he came up with that 99% figure using the prison population ratio in the UK (average 130 per 100,000), rounding it off at 1%, to get 99%.

For all we know 0% of hoodie wearers are criminals, or the opposite, 50% for all we know.

But I like this kind of diary, it's anecdotical and whacky, thanks for the info Little L!

You all know how I feel about hoodies.

Um, no, what am I thinking, that would be 0.1%.
Jesus Christ!! This means that hoodie wearers have a stronger representation of criminals than the national average of prisoners! This is not good, not good, oh no no no

Thanks, Alex!

I think I got totally lost in your calculations though, but I belive it's noone's fault but my own.

Really curious actually how the archbishop of York calculated the percentage, or maybe he just made educated guesses (or he's got access to classified information)...
