Philippines Crime Stats

Definitions

  • Age of criminal responsibility: The age at which a person is no longer excluded from criminal liability.  The lowest age is indicated for countries where there isn’t a single age limit, for example where different states have different regulations (such as the USA) or there is different limits for boy and girls (such as in Iran). The spectrum is specifically wide for the USA and Mexico (both 6-12 years). Several US states do not stipulate any minimal age for criminal responsibility at all. For further qualifications, exceptions and other notes, please refer to notes.
  • Assault rate: Number of assaults recorded by police per 100,000 population

The surveys were conducted by numbeo.com from July, 2011 to February, 2014.

62 assaults.. in the entire country?? Are you mad? Obviously there's something terribly wrong with that statistic. Why bother putting up stats that don't have complete information?? I live in Ireland and according to NationMaster there are over 9,000 assaults over here! Obviously, the Philippines would have way more assaults than Ireland.

We've always pray for transformation and global progress but mostly it becomes a escape goat from responsibility. Generally, the world chose to believe in God, other say god or gods but did it bring significant differrence? It's time now that we act on what we believe for believing is insiparable to acting.
