Tuesday, November 27, African crime: Attack the writer, and miss the point Bernard Lane, writing below, has run into a Leftist misapplication of natural justice. It is natural justice that I am responsible for my own deeds only, not the deeds of others.
Leftists use that to say that we cannot act against or discuss a criminally-inclined group if some members only of the group are actual criminals. But that seems to most people to be instinctively wrong.
What they overlook is that it is not only justice that needs to be discussed in reference to such a group but prevention.
We have a strong need to protect ourselves from members of that group. But we have no certain knowledge of which group members are likely to harm us. So we act probabilistically. Most of our knowledge is probabilistic.
We expect that dogs will bark but some don't.
Our knowledge that dogs bark is strong knowledge but it is in the end only probabilistic. If say we wish to protect ourselves from the frequent vicious attacks emanating from South Sudanese youths, our only recourse is to reply on our probabilistic knowledge of them and do something to restrict all of them from access to us.

Britain dealt with Irish terrorism by instituting detention without trial so there are available precedents. Justice is tangential to the problem. The issue is prevention.
Only perfect knowledge could give us perfect justice but we do not have such knowledge. Prevention, however, is not in principle difficult. I wrote two words — African crime — that are not supposed to go together, unlike white supremacy.
It sketched an atlas of crime hot spots across the city by people born in the conflict-ravaged Horn of Africa, mostly Sudanese. I knew it would be contentious, that any data analysis is imperfect, and so took care in framing it.
Activist group Sleeping Giants Oz tweeted: But the Sudanese are over-represented in the crime data, and police reports suggest an alarming degree of violence and contempt for the law, leaving a legacy of trauma and fear.
The long rant never came, unless that was all the rant on offer. What happened was that hundreds of people retweeted Sleeping Giants, sometimes adding their own abuse, conspiracy theories and bad spelling. The Twitter feed kept scrolling along, hour after hour.
Have you ever had to answer for any crime because the person who did it shared the same race as you? Nobody in the Twitter feed expressed compassion for Elena Morgan, the white woman bashed by three teenage girls of African appearance. If crime is a racist media concoction, it has no true victims.
I also had included a reference to the murder of Sudanese refugee Liep Gony by two whites in Noble Park. I had expected that race, nationality, culture and history would be conflated.
Does this include white Africans? Sydney lawyer James Wheeldon, whose job would require him to be a careful reader, joined the Twitter feed: He accused me of not comparing like with like, suggesting he had not paid much attention to the coverage before moralising.
At least he read it, I think. Criminologist Jarryd Bartle entered the fray, intimating I was a fraud because the data I had claimed to make use of was not publicly available.
Is her hurt different from the bruises of black-on-black violence?
Millar did have one useful criticism of my data analysis, which I added to the coverage.
