Definitions: are unsolved crimes counted? Is it based on convictions? Are plea bargains counted? Also degree (ie, pushing and shoving vs an MMA smackdown). Are they counting suicides? (Frequently, suicides and self-defense are lumped into homicides for these kinds of studies for obvious reasons). Are drug rapes counted towards violent rapes? etc etc etc. Also, it is well known that the NYC purposefully alters their reporting to give the appearance of lower crime rates. I’m from Brantley Co, Georgia. I visited Hartford, CT. I can tell you, I was much more concerned with my safety at ALL times in Hartford as opposed to Brantley County.

Notice the SHARP divide between state lines. Something royally screwy going on here. Virtually no rapes in NY? No…this is obviously some statistical or word play trick. This reminds me of the “All the Mexico gun cartels are armed with AR-15s bought in the USA.” Later? Fast and Furious. That didn’t make logical sense, and this doesn’t make logical sense either. Something real screwy going on.
So glad to read your post!!! I agree with you wholeheartedly. This map is skewed!!!

Don’t take the kids to the north slope of Alaska, they are getting slaughtered up there!!!1
Yes, this is completely idiotic.
Do you understand what per capita means?
There are a ton of people that live in NYC. There is a relatively low rate of violent crime, rapes, etc. as compared to the size of the population.
It's called a statistical variation inaccuracy. They taught us about it in Statistics 101 class, where people take data from places like New York City, which has millions of people, and try to compare it with tiny towns with just a few hundred people.
So let's say the crime data is "how many violent crimes per 100,000 people". Well, there might be 500 violent crimes per 100,000 people in New York. But if you live in a town with only 100 people, and two of them get into a fist fight, that's a crime rate of 2,000 violent crimes per 100,000 people when you plug in the data.
So that's why you get tiny towns in the middle of nowhere with 4 times the crime rate of places like New York City.

Would Jesus deny the child’s heart for the sins of those who raised him? For shame. Even if the dads were Satan worshipers, Jesus would still offer salvation to the child.
Jesus would not baptize the child any more than Jesus would hand him a condom. The infant is not at an age where he can make moral decisions for himself.
This has NOTHING to do with Little Jack. This has EVERYTHING to do with a "gay couple" wanting to force their religion on the church. Baptism is an outward symbol that one has converted to Christ. Little Jack is not old enough to make that decision; therefore, Little Jack is not old enough to be baptized.
Jesus would not even allow Little Jack to be dedicated by the gay couple. Why? Because WHO is doing the dedicating? Little Jack? NO. The GAY COUPLE. And child dedication is all about the parents committing to raising the child in a Biblical family, with Christ-centered teachings and spiritual principles. Well, a gay couple is a non-starter because that is the antithesis of a Christ-centered family. Christ spoke clearly that one man/one woman marriage was the only natural and ordained form of marriage and family.

There’s a Screwtape Letter that says the devil wants people to be charitable…to those in some far off land and hate and be disgusted by their neighbors. This is because the “charity” turns into empty lip service and the hate becomes real. This principal can be applied to both sides of the political fence (but especially by Leftists).

Offensive? No. Stupid? Yes.
If you found this funny, you probably find videos of kids getting kicked by horses funny too.
Exactly, Firesaber. She should at least have been dressed in a color that matches the appliances.
Can you link to a couple of those horse kickin deals?

A lot wrong with this: 1) Context of the “N-word” is missing. 2) Only measures one way racism (supposedly). 3) Ignores the fact that the Green areas are predominately white. Why would someone in Wyoming waste time talking about blacks? There not any! 4) Ignores the liberal racism. (ie, assumption that blacks cannot survive without benevolent whites giving them free stuff)

I bought a several thousand dollar Tempurpedic mattress. After a month, started developing dandruff for the first time in my life. By three months, all my hair fell out and I had sores all over my body. Better living through chemistry isn’t always what it’s cracked out to be. Went to a luxury (but standard) Sterns & Fosters and I recovered.

Incorrect! 1) SHE SAYS THIS. It is not proven. 2) Doing this in no way undoes the harm he committed nor relieves the girl of danger (opposed to when parents catch the act going on and beat the hell out of the man at that point). 3) This is not self-defense but revenge. The law does not allow for revenge. All that is going to happen (assuming she told the truth) is that 1) he is going to jail where taxpayers will have to take care of his injuries for him and 2) she might end up going to jail as well. A jury will hand down a reduced sentence, naturally, but she has admitted to a crime and she will face jailtime for it. Self-defense is not a crime. Revenge is. Simple. Hope it was worth the cost to her. She should have call the cops and had him arrested (assuming, as I said, that she’s not a psycho that realizes that all you have to do is levy the charge of molestation and it is assumed proven instantly).
Exactly. It sickens me when people say stuff like she should be given the keys to the city and a cash reward. Her crime was every bit as bad as his, assuming she isn't lying about it. Someone who is willing to immolate someone is capable of anything, including making up a story to keep herself out of jail.

It’s not for lack of trying. He came in after a lot of the damage has already been done. Standing up for the First Amendment here is an admirable act. However, the Democrats own the Senate and Harry Reid will not even bring to the floor anything House Republicans pass, so that doesn’t really leave a lot of room to “do stuff.” At best, Republicans can try to be obstructionists. However, this Imperial President is ignore them and enacting, ignoring, and changing laws a whim. The only viable thing to do is impeachment, but no one will do that because any attempt to do so (regardless of plenty of Constitutional merit) will be painted by Hollywood, the mainstream media, and Democrats as being racist.
Hell, they should all grow a pair, guts, and a spine and set right into procedure.
Then, they can sue for slander against all the demoncrap lap dog media and hollowwood.

Query, dipstick, what rights do we prevent others from having? Last I checked, we do not line up illegal immigrants and shoot them in the head (excessive punishment) or deport them without due process (due process). They might not have access to the 2nd amendment as just being here is illegal and ergo they would be in possession of a firearm during the act of a crime, which in most states is illegal…
 May 21, 2014 at 12:05pm
And wouldn’t it be nice to have a trial to prove it before you are killed? Or can they just write a report that says “Nevermind is a traitor and will now we droned, thank you.” and you are cool with that?
Dear DHS: I want to tell you about a citizen called 'Nevermind.' The NSA can tell you who he really is. I believe he may be an enemy of the current administration. He talks using conservative code-words, and he might be a racist.
Good thing he doesn't need a trial in order for you to drop an explosive on him.
Your Dutiful Snitch,
We should test the mettle of Barron and have him droned.
Fire, I hope you don't mind me riding shotgun on your comment. I just wanted to rub in the point.
He made videos for Al Queda which we were at war with. When you align yourself with he enemy you relinquish your citizenship and in turn the rights that go with it, including due process. Plus his passport was revoked 6 moths prior for being part of al queda
Hey Ministry, hate to break it to you ...im black. Also you can sace your funny post to DHS. I work within a stones toss of their facility , pass it each day to work and have lunch with many who work there daily. Sorry to break it to you but they know I am safe and as a veteran who works with people form DHS and FBI I can deliver the message much faster than you. IN fact I am headed to lunch now , anything else I should tell them?
"When you align yourself with he enemy you relinquish your citizenship and in turn the rights that go with it, including due process"
Where did you read that law? Can you post a link for reference?
MOT: excellent snitch post. lol
Pffft. NeverAmind is most likely lgblt with massive plumber's butt and works for the Salvation Army in Sioux City for the discounts. Ring that bell louder NeverAmind. Look up precedent while you are at 'lunch'. Sace it for later.
Never had a mind
What does being "black" have to do with a frog's A&&...nothing...just like it has nothing to do with Fires comment...or Ministry's...
if you are saying "i am black, i can't be a racist" then that just proves you ARE!! some of the worst racists I know of are BLACK!.. Try Sharpton and Jesse, heard of them...bigots, racists, and Socialist to the core...as are MANY of the "black leaders" that the MSM prance around when they want to prove "white racism" or "white privilege". NAACP, Black Panthers, Nation of Islam...all RACISTS and BIGOTS and Socialists...
now about your post...there is NO way to forfeit your citizenship EXCEPT to do so in WRITING to the correct offices of the US Government OR to ACTIVELY take up arms against the USA in a military conflict. Aiding and Abeding the enemy of the USA is something that MUST BE PROVEN in a Court of Law AFTER you are arrest and on trial with a JURY of your peers. The action alone does not forfeit citizenship until AFTER the arrest and trial.
Innocent until Proven Guilty in a Court of Law...even if I see you murder someone, I can not kill you. I must have you arrest, tried, convicted, and sentenced to death. Then I have to wait for the all MANDATORY appeals to take place, then there are other appeals that you can petition for, and once they are all done, then I can kill you.
There is a process to the Law...the WH broke that when they unilaterally decided to drone MURDER citizens.
I have to agree with Rand Paul's sentiments. The test of our foundational laws are when the most evil and despicable are afforded the same rights as someone who is well thought of.
A quote from one of the greatest pieces of military science fiction ever written (Armor by John Steakley), says it best.
What you do
When it counts.
What about his son,who was "accidentally" murdered ? That's okey too right ? After all, Berry was super upset and apologized.....I'm sure this kids Mother and Family sleeps better at night knowing the little boy king of The USA said Oopz and found out about it the same way he find out about all his screw-ups...Via the lamestream media..
To Ministry of Truth, One day society may target the Constitutional Conservative as a clear and present danger, a sworn enemy of the USA, and thus one who is not deserving of his citizenship or constitutional protections afforded to him.
I don't dispute that Al Alawakjob was a fanatic evil psycho, but his passenger son in the car was not even though he may have been one in training. The moment we advocate for suspension of somebody's rights, you go down the slippery slope of having the same suspension of your rights when it comes to it.
There were many ways to take that monster out, capture him, etc, but as an American citizen he had a right to be tried in front of his peers, then dragged to an electric chair.
Hey folks: Nevermind is black, so no one disagree with him. If you do, you'll be a racist.... /sarc
THANK GOD for RAND PAUL... a MAN, a Gentleman, a Scholar and most of all: A PATRIOT!! PAUL/CRUZ or CRUZ/PAUL... I don't care how it goes but we NEED real men who "GET IT" and know that without our RULE OF LAW, our BILL OF RIGHTS and our CONSTITUTION we'd be nothing.
BESIDES, anyone who has been paying attention KNOWS that the ONLY Reason Obama is using drones on these guys is to "MAKE IT OKAY" to gun down his opponents on the streets (or in their homes ) in America....he is fooling only those who are too naive to connect ANY dots. IMPEACH THE SOB and get it over with.
HE is the worst ENEMY AMERICA has ever had!!
You guys didn't get the memo? The DHS is solidly in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood. That's why veterans are considered the most dangerous domestic terrorists unless they are members of the Nation of Islam as is Nevermind.. Nevermind can probably send Ayo Kimathi right over to bag & snatch you and your whole family. You could be rendered to Somalia overnight. You guys make it almost to easy with your tolerance of other cultures. The other cultures have zero tolerance for you though. Buy your prayer rugs infidels. Wait till DHS gets exclusive control of the drones. Aluareuakubar! or whatever.
Still haven't seen "NEVERMIND" post the law to which he keeps repeating about relinquishing your citizenship lol. Now we have everyday citizens pulling new laws out of their @$$#%!*$ to post as set in stone. Just because it sounds right doesn't mean it is. EVERY Citizen has the right to defend themselves against accusations. Lets just for a minute say that someone had been told that unless they did specific that weren't right not only would they be killed, but snipers were already following and honed in on their family members. Obviously, not likely...but simply because there is always a CHANCE (keyword here) that things aren't what they seem, EVERYONE is innocent until proven guilty. Mr. Paul has it right...the burden of proof is on the prosecutors not the accused!!!
I'm not a huge Paul fan to be honest, but I agree he's got a good point. The guy was an American and guaranteed under the Constitution to due process of law as many have rightly pointed out. But I'll argue there's some grey here.
Does anybody but me know the person Paul is referencing? His name is Anwar al-Awlaki and I suggest you Google him. Do you know what he did and why he was targeted? Probably not.
Do you remember Nidal Hissan, the guy that murdered 13 people at Ft. Hood? Do you remember how outraged you were that those murders were called "workplace violence" instead of terrorism, especially given that he was exchanging emails - 18 emails - with a member of al-Qaeda? Who was they al-Qaeda guy who convinced him to murder as many people as possible? That's correct: Anwar al-Awlaki. Remember the underwear bomber who tried to kill 280 Americans? Who was he talking to? Correct: Anwar al-Awlaki. Did you know that most of this guys videos (some called him the Osama Bin Laden of the internet) were removed from YouTube because they were actively encouraging US Muslims to kill Americans? There's not space to talk about other things such as his English language magazine that promoted random murder in the US as a religious duty.
Some are saying we should have captured this person and brought him back to the US, despite his being protected with probably 50 or 100 armed terrorists. How many American Seals would die in that attempt?
If Anwar al-Awlaki was such a "bad guy" why was he invited to the Pentagon after 9/11. Hell he was a guest speaker. This was after he was interviewed by the FBI for having connections to the 9/11 hijackers. What do Osama Bin Laden, Al-Awlaki and the Boston Bombers all have in common? When you know the answer to that question you will realize the killing of Al-Awlaki was just tying up lose ends.
" When you align yourself with he enemy you relinquish your citizenship and in turn the rights that go with it, including due process. "
I hate to break it to you, but constitutional protections cover everyone whether they are citizens or not. Foreign visitors have the same constitutional/human rights as you do.
Second, you cannot be deprived of your citizenship without due process FIRST. Even if you are correct that his actions deprived him of the protections of citizenship, he would have to have that citizenship legally revoked in order to be legally targeted.
Moderatrepub, the Obama administration called fort Hood a case of workplace violence so your point is moot by their standards. I somewhat agree with you and Al Alaki is a piece of excrement partially responsible for the massacre yet the administration says Hassan acted alone, thus clearing Alaki of any culpability in relation to the shooting.
Hey VRW the WH didn't break the law or anything in the constitution....Grand master funk wrote another executive order giving himself permission. We all know congress is too chicken S&%$ to do anything about them. They are too comfy getting paid to do nothing for the past six years

You are uninformed. The founding fathers intended to protect the people’s right to arms because, without it, they wouldn’t have been able to rebel from England. You are believing what you are told. Read the Federalist Papers. It is very explicit what their intent was.

Bill Maher is a hypocrite. He wants guns to be banned, but he owns two guns to defend himself (one for upstairs, one for downstairs) and will not give them up until everyone else’s has been taken away. I have a feeling that he lives in a neighborhood that is fairly secure. The police will probably defend his house for him. Just like every other anti-gun elite. They can afford private security and live in good neighborhoods or own guns themselves, but the poor shouldn’t be able to defend themselves. The poor cannot be trusted with guns. The elites are the only ones that need to be concerned with defense. After all, poor people have nothing to lose. Why would anyone target them? What’s to defend?

Full Metal Jacket, boot camp was the best part of the movie (comedy).

Ever read 2084 search for love hope and faith? He talks about that. There’s always someone on top.

What an idiot! It’s out of modern syntax, but this is what it really means: “Anyone that wants to help the poor should be rich.” ie – If you cannot feed and clothe yourself, you are not going to feed and clothe the whole of the people.

I had a cousin that lived in FL. One day, their neighbor came into their yard and killed her husband right in front of her with a gun. No reason other than he was crazy. He got 3 years in jail. She got 20 years for shooting a wall…

Wow. another prediction from 2084, the Search for Love Hope and Faith, comes true. amazing.

Yes, you answered it after hearing the question, having time to process your own response, and time to sit at your computer and type it. Well done. That is the same as being in front of a crowd and hearing the question for the first time and having a 30 second time frame. That answer still would have lost her the title. Only the “We need to change” answer would have won.
