    Nice. Sounds like Gary Mauser … but it’s not.

  2. ExurbanKevin says:

    Actually, it is. “Gary Mauser, a professor emeritus at Simon Fraser University…”

    Thanks Kevin … I can’t believe I missed that!

    Here is one of Mauser’s best papers (with Don Kates). Well worth the read.

    “It’s safest to focus on homicide, the ultimate crime, and, as Statistics Canada noted in a study last October, `the only criminal offence that is truly comparable among nations.`”

    Maybe. Accordng to the E.U. study, England has a lower rate than Canada. Well, I learned earlier this week that in England a homicide is not counted as a murder until someone is convicted and has exhausted all possible appeals. By which standard Jack the Ripper’s victims were not murdered.
