Source text (p. A5): "In practise it is impossible to solve out crimes in western urban societies according to Mr Aromaa's knowledge. According to him [Mr Aromaa] Finland's 14 percent crime solving rate is not even poor, but more or less like to be better than in nation's having even bigger cities."
Lähde teksti (s. A5): "Aromaan tietojen mukaan varkauksien selvittäminen on käytännössä mahdotonta länsimaisissa kaupunkiyhteiskunnissa. Hänen mielestään Suomen 14 prosentin selvitysaste ei ole edes huono, vaan todennäköisesti parempi kuin vielä suurempien kaupunkien maissa."
