    USA isn't a race it's a country.

    Lie #1



    So you can lie to yourself if you wish.

    See above for lie #1.

    Post #77
    In response to pay#74 where you made a strawman.

    The USA isn't a race. That isn't a lie. If you don't know what race is perhaps you shouldn't bring it up.

    And as I said, so was Nazi Germany

    In response to pay#74 where you made a strawman.
    That you, like the Nazis, saw their country as peerless ?


    You don't know what a straw man fallacy is.


    The USA isn't a race. That isn't a lie.
    Neither was Nazi Germany, and that isn't one either


    If you don't know what race is perhaps you shouldn't bring it up.

    I didn't

    I referenced the Nazis view of themselves as having no peer

    Deutschland Uber Alles


    The same way that you say the USA has no peer today


    I'm drawing a parallel between Americans who think as you do, to the mindset of the Nazis.
    Supreme and without peer.

    Not worth addressing. Stop being ridiculous and I'll stop dismissing you.

    I don't entertain hysterics. Sorry. Be a little more intellectually honest and then maybe you can have a grown up discussion.

    Sadly I think you are incapable.

    What do "culture and values" have to do with violence?

    "The average person ... has basically no chance in their lifetime ever to use a gun in self-defense," he tells Here & Now's Robin Young. "But ... every day, they have a chance to use the gun inappropriately. They have a chance, they get angry. They get scared."




    How Often Do People Use Guns In Self-Defense? : NPR
    Because two different studies are cited, that isn't a gotcha, that's you self owning that you did not read the article carefully nor either of the studies.

    Now if the police department, judged that your house was in a street to dangerous to patrol/protect at night and left you to the mercy of "a knife wielding maniacs" on a nightly basis, you could sue them or the city.
    Lozito was already being attacked, the danged in confronting Maksim was limited because his attention wasn't on the police.

    If a street is too dangerous to patrol, there is no duty to protect and no basis for suit. You might know this if you were actually reading the cases rather than trying to discredit things through a flimsy and false portrayal of only one case.

    Why look outside the country?

    Maryland and Minnesota are both inside the US, and one has 4 times the murder rate of the other.
