The newspaper Le Progrès based in Lyon, France published an infographic [1] [fr]entitled “”Délinquance : à chacun sa spécialité – principales nationalités impliquées” (Crimes: To each his own- the main nationalities implicated [for each type of crimes]) (see image in the twitter update below):     

In its daily publication, newspaper Le Progrès dared to publish a comparison of crime rates in the Rhône by nationality 

Thibeau Perezat notes that the newspaper did not mention the sources [4] of the data. Global Voices contributor Julie Owono comments that the newspaper failed to distinguish that “Africans” or “Roma” are not nationalities.
