Nevada ranks last nationally in college graduates and only a third of the state's residents hold a post-secondary degree....Since 2007, undergraduate registration fees and tuition have increased 73 percent in Nevada.
Under Common Law, you can defend your home from an intruder; you do not have to wait to be attacked, nor do you have to cower in your room and pass slips of paper under your bedroom door pleading with the nice man in the hood to leave you unharmed. Emerging with the tire iron only when he refuses to leave.
The police investigate the killings where somebody has killed an intruder to make sure the person didn't invite some local druggie round to smash up their place so that they can claim insurance and so on.
(That may sound hideous to the extreme Right bred on the Daily Mail that a homeowner should even be questionned, though in my town (Croydon) a woman did invite a local chav round to murder her husband; she then walked in the room with their .22 calibre rifle and shot the hitman dead on the spot. She initially managed to escape prosecution, as people thought it was a clear cut case of self defence, until somebody found a question she'd posted on an internet forum asking how to commit the perfect murder of a relative; the answer she picked as best answer, amusingly, was one suggesting to 'hire a guy from 'da hood' and get him to knife her husband. Then she should kill him and claim self defense'.)
Needless to say, she was charged.
Why are people so ignorant of the UK's self defence laws?

The schools in my city are too busy teaching illegal aliens how to speak English, and providing breakfasts and lunches during the summer months, to care about teaching math and science. In fact, last year there were cuts, and I know of several good math and science teacher (not tenured) who were let go, but the school district kept ALL of the ESL teachers. My son was already having to drive across town to another high school to take Trig., since it was ONLY offered at 1 of the 3 schools. Idiocracy...yes. But you will have to translate to Espanol.
