    Do you know that the English definition of "violent crime" is not the same as the one used by the FBI in gathering data on crimes in the US?

    Do you know that the murder rate in England, counting all means of death, is less than a third of the US's?

    2009/2010
    in England there were 871,000 "crimes against the person", that is crimes included in their Assaults category - less than half actually resulted in injury to the victim.
    Among the charges under the definitions used by the Brits, there were crimes such as; "simple assault without injury", " verbal harassment", “possession of an article with a blade or point,” and causing “public fear, alarm, or distress.”


    Comparing apples and oranges is even more ignorant when one doesn't know the subject very well.

    you initially pointed out how the death rate in England is much lower for police.

    When I pointed out how much higher the violent crime rate was, you said England is too small, so any comparisons of rates are ineffective.
    Then it was your misunderstanding of my statement is the problem. I was referring specifically to the number of police deaths. I made the mistake of using raw numbers. In that regard, the raw numbers do not accurately give a proper representation due to the difference in population. I was conceding to this fact and thus pointed out the flaw in my own post.

    Addressing the number of violent crimes has absolutely nothing to do with the number of dead police officers. You failed at addressing a conceded point. Wow.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    It is good this happened and hopefully the two in critical condition will pull through. This shows that all the antigun folks that it is "insanity" not weapons that kill. I can kill with my hands if I am crazy. I can twist, choke, drown, beat, set fire to, trample a person to death and how will you "outlaw" those acts???
    Just imagine what might have happened if that maniac was a gun nut. How many would have died? 10, 20 more?

The company I work for has hired people from there, and they have turned out to be exemplary employees.

    On the other hand, maybe you are right, and Virginia Tech teaches people how to make sushi while giving karate kicks to evil overlords from Hong Kong.

    BTW, the knife wielder at Lone Star Collge was white.

    Sorry to come down on you so hard, but your post was not only over the top where it comes to racial stereotyping and prejudice, but it was also quite dumb.
    So, only black folks live in ghettos, pimp and smoke crack?

    According to YOU, they do. The guy you corrected didn't say anything about black folks. You did. Speaks volumes.

    His remarks were racist as hell. I can also spot a troll a mile away, so onto my ignore list you go. Troll someone else.
