When you start a country by killing the natives who have been there for 10,000 years; and then kidnapping 6 million people from Africa at gunpoint….. then throw in 320 million guns to see what happens….

you see what happens. There is no solution to this. We started wrong and got worse.

He’d been arrested before.” “But he was not a bad guy, and he was not violent;”

How is a criminal “not a bad guy”? It is thinking like this that is harming us all.

Facts: most drug addicts in US are white suburban rich not blacks or Hispanics and other minorities.

Is a “space to kill” that much different?

Look north to Camden and Newark and you see the same problems. “Solidar” below advances the B.S. idea that America was founded to advance slavery. He/she also claims that “European countries had banned” – demonstrably false. Slavery was not outlawed in Denmark, Norway and France until the 1790s, well after the founding of America. Slavery persisted in Russia until 1861 under the guise of “serfdom.”

Yes, guns, let’s always blame guns when we don’t know how to solve a problem. Politicians and media types love this approach. If you were to make a massive sweep through the country and pick up every firearm (not a practical measure) the killing in Baltimore and Flint wouldn’t slow down, but simply proceed by alternate means. Sadly, this violence is part of urban culture. Who can put a stop to urban crime? The people who live in these areas, and what remains of their family structure.

This is not just a country that allowed slavery in its early days. It’s a country that was founded expressly for the purpose of operating slave businesses. European countries had banned.

So… kidnap 6 million people from Africa, breed them, force them to work at gunpoint, free them…. add 320 million more guns….. you get what we have.

30,000 dead people (ten 9/11’s) every single year from guns. No other rich country has this problem because no other rich country is this messed up.
