While I don't eat statistics raw, I am even more sceptical of conspiracy theories (such as the official crime data is in fact false, due to a group of people "pulling the strings" to help their own agenda or whatever).
In fact there has been done reserch into the likelyhood of various conspiracy theories based on known un-covered ones. The results are (simplified) that the larger the group of people that has to be involved in the conspiracy in order for it to exist, the less likely it is to survive without being exposed to the puplic.
It's quite logical to me. In this example: In order for the official crime data that is being released by Germany to be rigged, every single people handling the data has to be in on it - from the people gathering it, processing the data etc. The idea of such a conspiray to exist and survive, because some powerful people somehow wanted to paint a cartain picture is rediculous in a open democratic society such as Germany.
You can read the Abstract of the study here:https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0147905
*Also a fun fact. There has also been studies into the likelyhood of believing in conspiracy theories among different people:>"That is, people who overestimate how well they understand politics are more likely to believe that hidden actors or clandestine groups are conspiring in wide-ranging activities to influence important world actions, events, and outcomes."https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/05/180530154457.htm
But then again, I don't expect the retards on this site to care. To them these studies are probably also part of some giant conspiracy disigned to keep the stupid masses made up by people like me to see the things that only the few enlightened /pol/ tards are able to grasp.
