Crime Rates in Saudi Arabia

I was working on a research paper during the summer semester titled, “Shari’ah: The Solution for Humanity,” and as part of my research, this is what I found:

Sam Souryal presents crime rate statistics in his analytical report about Saudi Arabia that would clearly prove the success of Shari’ah law in preventing crime in a society. In contrast to 100,000 offenses in other countries, Saudi Arabia had a rate of 3.9 in homicide, 184.1 in assault, 24.2 in sex crimes, 0.7 in kidnapping, 908.5 in robbery, 9.8 in illegal drug traffic, 28.9 in drug abuse, and 67.8 in alcohol abuse between the years of 1970 and 1975.
