Food to blame for 100% of our crimes

'Cocaine to blame for 41% of our crimes' |

Statistics are a dangerous thing.

Greater Manchester Police drug-tested 1,000 people arrested for violent offences in the seven month period to March last year.

Half tested positive for drugs and of these, 86% tested positive for cocaine.

Had they tested them for food, I am quietly confident that 100% would have eaten some in the previous 24 hours. Oh, and I think half of 86% is 43%, not 41%. Maybe the journalist has been using?
