oh look, a non-MSM article from RT! is this domestic simply consequential, thus acceptable? a 50% increase in homicides in one year, is rather startling, to lil old me. or is this nothing to becker about, civil unrest.

rt.com...

so, is it just propaganda trying to paint us americans and our model democracy immoral, violent, trigger-happy?

"While the latest massacre has scarred millions of Americans, it's also just another item added to a list of gruesome sprees.

According to an ongoing tally kept by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the United States is experiencing an average of around 20 mass shootings each year.

Virginia Tech in 2007 left 32 people dead. Since 2005, these events are occurring, at least on some scale, in remarkable numbers.

The Aurora incident was already the sixth mass-shooting in the month of July alone. (!)

The homicide rate for June 2012 was 50 percent higher than just a year earlier.

In 2012, more people have been killed in Chicago alone, than the number of US servicemen in Afghanistan.

Children are becoming victims more and more in these communities

If you can have an individual spray bullets where children are playing nearby, there's something wrong."


happy holidays, all!

interesting, more people die in car accidents, more individuals commit suicide, and more people die from cancer, and now you are stating what? And we should worry about what? Don't have the time, however i do have the time in stating op, your "wagging the tail" and if you are worried about the homengous aggragiate level of society, stop placating msm's bull, and get on the ban wagon of the deaths that happen in a given day, not that of a given year.
best,

Are you really an American? Or just play one on TV?
Also, the US is not a Democracy.
It's a Constitutional Representative Republic.




happy holidays, all!


You too

There is a price for freedom. 93 people PER DAY are killed in car crashes in the U.S., and we are not going to restrict driving.

now that's weird, i looked in the thread discussing massacres, and nobody's reminding each other that more people died in car accidents than massacre X Y or Z

so whats the difference, why are americans so insulted by their own morbid statistics and downplay them with others?

On a side note..

I wonder which problem is worse????


New studies find that about a million people in Russia die each year from alcohol and tobacco related illnesses. And in several recent years, more than half of all Russian deaths between the ages of 15 and 54 were caused by alcohol.


The average Russian adult drinks 50 bottles of Vodka a Year!

A million people per year. What a sobering statistic......

But really, I shouldn't even compare, because its apples to oranges, or silly facts(mine), to agenda(OP).

Someone needs to remind Russian RT of Beslan where Americans shootings never had that many fatalities.

Deadly Russia!
