    That's 63,000:0. I submit that USAF Officers are infinitely more criminal-free than Indiana Judges.
    I don't know about that.
    I heard that most USAF Officers have been pretty high during their careers.

    One of the national Dems (can't remember which one right now - they all run together) dropped a stat that 30% of the US adult population has a criminal record.

    I do not know the provenance of that statistic, but even rounding down to 20%, that's a bigger ratio than 200:1.

    (Ok, had to google it.)

    Politifact link from 2017 notwithstanding...

    https://www.politifact.com/new-york/...iminal-record/

    The FBI considers anyone who has been arrested on a felony charge to have a criminal record, even if the arrest did not lead to a conviction. The FBI only counts those with a misdemeanor if a state agency asks the bureau to keep it on file.
    So by the FBI’s standard, 73.5 million people in the United States had a criminal record as of June 30.
    The Census Bureau lists the adult population in the United States at 249.4 million. That means the FBI considers about 29.5 percent of adults to have a criminal record.

    Other hits appear to confirm anywhere from 1/4 to 1/3 of American adults have been arrested for something.

    I was actually surprised at that, too.

    You don't have to be a citizen, or counted in the census, to be arrested. How many of those felons are non-citizens? How many are deceased? I don't think it's as simple as criminal records vs census numbers as the things aren't counting the same thing.
    L'otters are not afraid.

    Is voting when you're deceased a felony?
