Stefan Molyneux's recent interview with John Wright focused in large part on liberal criminality relative to the conservative tendency to abide by the law.
My immediate reaction was "racial confounding, this is why understanding HBD is imperative to understanding society".
Yes, political orientation among blacks is less predictive of partisan affiliation than it is among whites--that is, blacks vote Democrat whether they identify as liberal, moderate, or conservative--but blacks are still considerably more likely to identify as liberal than whites are (for contemporary relevance all data in this post are from 2000 onward):
Ergo, it's hardly surprising that self-identified liberals are more criminally prone than self-identified conservatives are.
The GSS chastises me for my lazy assumptions, though. Even among whites exclusively, liberals are more likely to engage in criminal activity than conservatives are. The percentages of whites who have ever been arrested or charged with a crime by police, by political orientation:
Among white men, 35% of liberals and 27% of conservatives, respectively, have ever been arrested or charged.
These differences aren't huge but they do serve as a handy rhetorical rebuttal to the Narrative's insinuation that heterosexual conservative white men are the Real Danger to society.
