Shipman's legacy

by Ted Hoffman

British Crime Survey figures out today, the BBC notes this extraordinary statistic.

There were 858 deaths initially recorded as murder - down 18% on the 2002-2003 figures - or by 2% if Harold Shipman's crimes are excluded.

Committing roughly 16% of all murders in one year, seems strangely admirable.
