You are walking down an isolated street late at night in a problematic district. What are the odds of you being the victim of a terrorist act as opposed to a conventional criminal incident? The response is obvious-and that it would apply to both North America and Europe.It would be laughable if your fear of terrorism trumps crime. In terms of statistics there is no comparison between the two categories.
