The UK has a higher white and Asian (read: Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi) percentages with higher crime rates (according to you). Perhaps those groups are more prone to commit crime. Wouldn't it reasonable to conclude that crime rates would go up if those demographics were replicated here?

If the UK population was "replicated" here the crime rates would probably be identical.

I can't tell how serious you want to be, but whites and Asians in the UK commit far more crimes than they do in the US. In the US our crime is largely concentrated among other minorities. I don't think anyone is naturally "prone" to commit crimes because of their race, but you can't ignore the statistics. It's also a matter of quality of life. In the UK it's much harder to avoid crime because it's not ghettoized to the extent it is here. Some in the US have it worse than the UK, but most have it much better than the overall statistics would suggest.

Ter,


We need to know everyone's race before we can jump to any conclusions.

Lol, who was that guy who ran into the woods and dared the cops to come after him? He was a cop himself if I recall.

Damn, watch this video, right wingers and left wingers are going to see two different things.

PS:This shooting happened about 9 months ago and has been released by the families PI Attorney ( so they think it will help their case ). As I said, different people will see this tape and think completely opposite things.

I saw that earlier. Amazing!

Yeah, let's cuff the dead guy.

I must be "left wing", since I see fault with the guys in blue.

You just know some right-winger is going to say screwdrivers are dangerous weapons or something racist like that.

That statement isn't racist. Just an FYI.
