    DID I NOT SAY IN MY OP THAT I DID NOT WANT TO JUSTIFY SEXUAL ASSAULT AT ALL?

    :rolleyes:
    You were hinting that refugees (and I'll tell you this now sweetheart, many of them aren't refugees at all, just gimmegrants) have PTSD and they react to things emotionally and crazily.

    PTSD doesn't cause someone to assault women, rob them and leave them with a horrific experience they will never forget.

    Those are the ones who will have PTSD.

    I said in my OP that I was referring to rioting and somewhat harsh crimes but not rape.

    This one claims 20-50% http://www.ctvnews.ca/health/syrian-...ptsd-1.2673341

    and as I've said, there is a lot of research that you can easily find yourself on this topic
    Firstly that isn't a study it's a news report.

    Secondly it claims 10-15% of adults.


    Link a study the onus is on you to provide a credible source scientifically as you want to label them with a medical condition.

    If and when you do that satisfactorily we can then laugh at you trying to link PTSD to the crimes and social issues these migrants have brought to Europe......

    based on what, parliamentary representation? the UK came lower than South Africa (who have higher rates of sexual assaults) for that, I suppose its Assad's fault that they don't have democratic representation for men and women.

    PTSD doesn't not cause rioting, name another crime

    So stabbing someone and taking their life when you have PTSD is completely justifiable?

    I'm sorry but no. Look up the symptoms for PTSD before you make the statements you made. I also find it hilarious you called me a bigot when I stated a fact- Middle Eastern countries don't do well at all with gender equality and things like that.

    Look up on Wikipedia's main chart for gender equality. Syria did terribly- 145th ranking or something.

    I suggest you read the book "A God who hates". It really opens your eyes up on how most men in the Middle East view women before you make any naive remarks.

    As for countries, who don't want to take in migrants, good on them! At least they're worried about their own people first.

    are you saying that their culture is responsible for crime stats? I think there is a lot to understand about petty crime, poverty and lack of job opportunities and mental health some of them.
    Apart from the study from Denmark that standardised for age and socioeconomic conditions and still found significantly higher rates of crime from immigrants first and second from turkey, Pakistan, Morocco and Somalia. Similarly a Finnish study found socioeconomic issues had a modest impact on crime rate even though immigarnts from backgrounds such as those mentioned had a significantly higher crime rate for certain crimes.

    And it isn't an immigration issue, immigration from the USA but also from China and Japan all showed significantly lower crimes rates, usually lower than the national average, and on occasion lower than the native average.

    PTSD and other mental health issues may have caused an increase in crime rates but it is already on top of an increased crime rate, one that isn't easily explained away by poverty and lack of jobs.
