English help! For example:

"According to a recent survey, many people believe that about a quarter of the population will become victims of a violent crime in the next year, whereas crime statistics show that it is only about 1 per cent. Furthermore, those with the greatest fear of crime, namely the elderly, are the least likely to be affected (since most victims are young men). The increasing number of television programmes which show re-enactments of crimes add to people's fears about violent crime by making it seem more common than it is. It is time that we stopped making such programmes."

can anyone break it down into pieces? e.g. 1st sentence makes a claim. 2nd sentence supports it. 3rd sentence dismantles it etc.
