comparison n’est pas raison [w/o statistics]

On the French public radio this morn’, while having my post-run breakfast, I heard a (lengthy) interview where the Parliament (insoumis) deputy François Ruffin argued about the frequent and biased ID checks by the French police, before stating there was no data about this:

“…la place du contrôle d’identité dans la police française. Quand on compare à l’international, elle procède à beaucoup plus de contrôles d’identité, encore plus sur les minorités que les pays qui nous entourent...” [the role of ID checks in the French police is much more present than in neighbouring countries, especially against minorities]

“…il n’y a aucune statistique du nombre de contrôles d’identité effectués…” [there exist no statistic on the number of ID checks]
