Yes, perhaps it would. And perhaps if you took out those European murders by muzzies, Russian mafiosi, ex-Balkan types etc. the numbers for western/central Europe would be still lower.
And while it must be noted that the numbers for the UK are much worse than for the other western Euro countries (thereby bringing up the average), I think the statement of the original post I replied to doesn’t hold too much water.
Maybe so, maybe not.
