### La Griffe du Lion: prison ratios

La Griffe du Lion has a new technical analysis of a sociological issue. He asks:

His answer is based on mathematics that is more or less equivalent to his previous analysis of women in science. The conservative states impose a lower threshold to be arrested - they only tolerate smaller crime. This makes the groups of people behind bars less selective. Because the black crime Gaussian is broader and higher than the white ones in the same way as the male math aptitude Gaussian is broader and higher than the female one, smaller selectivity is translated to a less dramatic ratio between the black and white percentages. It is therefore logical and inevitable that the racial disparity is more striking in the left-wing states.

The indentity of La Griffe du Lion remains a mystery to us.
