You know, most countries have official statistic for stuff like this. You know, people dying and stuff.

 

The FBI collects statistics. There is nothing in US law preventing the gathering of statistics. The law prevents government funding of studies. The fact that the anti-gun lobby puts out disinformation like this is the reason the law exists. Stuff like this doesn't help their cause is my point.

Also they did clearly mention their Definiton in the Article. You were informed by the 3rd Sentence/2nd Pargraph.

 

Any gun discharging in any school for any reason is a loose definition of a school shooting. That's going to give misleading numbers when the numbers are cited.

Doign stuff like that is strongly supporting credibility in my book.

 

You don't value honesty? Aren't honest, unpadded numbers good enough? IMO, they're pushing their agenda dishonestly. And they have no reason to. They can make their case without lying, but they chose to lie.

The Weapon Lobby even prevents that much sanity.

The CDC would normally handle death statistics but they are forbidden to study it.

To be clear: Disband only to recreate it from scratch. A clean slate. And it was not like the idea was going anywhere anyway.

I read the book Homicide which was about a reporter who worked with the murder police in Baltimore. His book went on to become Homicide:Life on the Streets and The Wire.

He pinpointed one of the problems with the police department which was the police were not allowed to become proficient being moved about every three years and that was one of the reasons for the increase in the murder rate

Shifting police around, though, is one of few tools one has for combating police corruption, e.g., the beat cops getting bought and turning into de facto thugs for neighborhood (and city) bosses; it is also a mechanism which makes it easier to insert "specials", Internal Affairs officers and undercover feds, as well. Corruption was a serious problem back in the late 19th Century, and it is by no means dead.

If anything, this is a confirmation.

But it does show, there can be repercussions to not letting your cops use their XP to buy  Area Knowledges.  :winkgrin:

Happy Year of the Dog, everyone.  If you were born in 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, or 2018, enjoy your auspicious year.  The Year of the Dog is supposed to be a good year to build loyal relationships and material wealth, and for reunions with friends and family.  Dog people are supposed to be known for loyalty.

 

Please direct further questions about the Year of the Dog to our resident astrologer, Cancer.  ;)
