    You're knee deep in the Arab Spring, and we're here trying to incarcerate our police departments.

    I'm fascinated by all things British, and I hate what is happening to your culture and heritage.

    Arab spring ? I think you've got the wrong continent there

    My culture and heritage are just fine.

    Given per capita the US locks up six times as many of its citizenry and yet still has murder rates five times that of ours puts you in a poor position to go criticizing alleged declines in other cultures

    The problems you speak of in the US are intensely concentrated. The overwhelming majority of Americans are not impacted by the outrageous statistics of a few.

    A division of our company is based in Sheffield, and the guys I know tell me how sad they are to see what is happening to England in many sectors of your country. I can't speak to it myself, although I am a big Arsenal fan!

    What makes you think thats unique to the US ?

    The reality is nothing of the sort despite what I know you'd like to believe. The relative murder and incarceration figures I mentioned earlier rather speak for themselves. Its your society that has far deeper issues than ours

    PS. I visit the US regularly and over the years have witnessed the alarming rise in levels of destitution even in nominally affluent cities like San Francisco. Your solution just seems to be locking up ever more desperate citizens in ever greater numbers sadly.

    Are you mad at me because I told Flogger not to go off on his usual anti-gun posts?

    No, I just noticed the double standard is all. Either using a dead guy to push an agenda is OK, or it's not.

    Anything to contribute about the subject of the thread, Kobie? Or are you just here to wag your finger?

    It's terrible that the cop died, and using his death to promote an agenda is a dick move. Happy?
