COMMENT: Argument similar to presentation (6)

TEXT:"Campaigners for civil liberties fear that parliament and the public have overreacted. Ireland still has one of the lowest crime rates in Europe- and it has stayed roughly level for a decade. Thanks in part to the recent gangland killings (44 people in all were killed last year, 25 in the first half of this year), the murder rate is now much the same as Britain's. But that still puts it among the lowest in the industrialized world. More than twice as many, per head, are murdered in the rest of the European Union; seven times as many in the United States. All the same, the contract killing of brave veronica Guerin has shaken a nation out of its complacency".
