The Age: Local-born more at risk of assault

PEOPLE born overseas are less likely to be assaulted than those born in Australia, according to new Australian Bureau of Statistics data…

It showed an assault rate of 3.6 per cent for Australian-born people, or 445,000 victims, compared with an assault rate of 1.7 per cent, or 82,000, for those born in other countries.

Wait, if local born people are assaulted at twice the rate, isn’t that discriminatory against Australians? Or maybe we just treat our visitors with more respect?
