Crime Breakdown By Astrology Sign

Can astrology predict jail time? Via the National Post, police in Canada’s rural Chatham-Kent region tallied the zodiac signs of all criminal arrestees for 2011 to see if any patterns would emerge. Arieses, whom horoscopes commonly characterize as hot-tempered, impulsive, and thrill-seeking, lead the way in being caught for evil deeds and antisocial mischief:

    Well, I’m an Aries, and I do have to fight the urge to commit felonies on a pretty regular basis…

        Just what are you insinuating?

        • Calypso_1

          you (in response to *Thirty Percent Of Americans Arrested By Age 23*:
          “They got two years to make me part of this statistic, let’s see if they can pull it off…”
          me:  “Dreams can come true”

          • Anarchy Pony

            Oh yeah! I almost forgot about that, someone is paying a little to close attention… *raised eyebrow, narrowed eyelids*

          • Calypso_1

            Sorry, I had a photographic memory as a child, it’s deteriorated somewhat in the maelstrom of psychosis that is my mind, but still keen enough nevertheless.  I hope that was a sequential expression and not simultaneous, as raised brow and narrowed lids tends to impart a sense of drunken stupor….then again maybe your still working on the New Year : )  hmm I think I have a little 151 left…damn memories.

            I was trying to convey a look of suspicion, but I guess it did’t come off right. Oh well.

    …total BS… Zodiac has as much to do with nothing and this was probably paid for with taxes from the tax payer… …total and utter bullshit.

    • Monkey See Monkey Do

      Zodiac is as important as any other religion, sprituality or belief system. often the zodiac and astrology is misrepresented and made fun of through the depiction of charleton astrology in newspapers and con-artist astrology on television. Behind it all is actually a valid investigation into reality and was considered valid in mainstream science until the enlightenment when science became disenchanted.

    Paul calm down how expensive do you think it would be to look at birthdates of people arrested? Also are you canadian if not then how would your tax dollars be invovled? Also you’re an idiot for thinking somehow that science is about assuming a conclusion beforehand and then not investigate it cause you know it’s b.s.. What is b.s. is that we pretend everyone has a brain.

    You need to correlate these statistics with the birth signs of the general population. More people are born in the (late) spring and summer than in fall and winter.

    As a a sag- I can say with confidence, i am highly surprised we ranked so low on the list; however Chatham-Kent is not exactly populous nor indicitive of the canadian pop’n as a whole (it being what some would say are the ‘boondocks’).

    I may not score as high as Aries, but I’ll be damned if I’m gonna be outdone by an Aquarius or Pisces!

    I’m a sag and I have to agree with the others here who say they are surprised. The first thing that popped in my mind was celebrities and the big ones are Sag! I think we must be sneeky!!! My best friend is an Aries though and I get in far more trouble than she does. Very interesting article though!!!! I also agree with Tchoutoye  because I totally think this study was dependent on the population there. And this isn’t bs! It’s pretty cool!

    If they can pass a bill declaring Pizza to be a vegetable, I’ll bet they can pass a bill for it to be illegal to be born under the astrological sign of Aries. Oh wait lets not give them any ideas now…
