I'm assuming you're right in what you say but I doubt it's just the last ten years. I think it's been slowly escalating over more than ten years. Perhaps since the 60's.
There are records kept by the FBI, but you are probably right about the Great Society programs being the root cause, that and permissive parenting and not allowing schools to teach children self control and personal responsibility and using mind altering drugs on lots of children.

People here aren't going to like this, but rights are to blame. People, including criminals, are demanding - and getting - more rights all the time.

Each time an attacker is shot, a badge is demanded.

That policeman had no right to shoot that person! That criminal has rights!

Is it any wonder that they're unwilling to shoot attackers?

You can say they should do the right thing anyway, but how are they supposed to know it's right when the entire world is against them for doing it? Every citizen, every newspaper, and even the police department which is paying them to do the job their way.

Sometimes you begin talking quite sensibly but then after a couple of sentences your brain gets full. Just in case it's not deliberate spam, I mention it. I'm thinking it could be just social awkwardness with you?

Could it be because it only uses the lizard part of it's brain? That's pretty small...

No. If teachers and administrators are armed the "shooters" will almost always be shot dead long before the police get there.


Not in the case I posted.  Even if they are, police will shoot any civilian they see with a gun.

In the story I posted, police shot a civilian with a gun who had identified himself and was in the process of putting the gun down.  Shot him twice, it was amazing that he lived.

Yeah right. Chances are they were government union police, blah blah, and they probably got off because they were government union police..

Speak to the issue or shut up.

Why are you so angry today, Jeff?  It can't be this board.  Or can it?

I have a theory about why you've been so angry since about this time yesterday, but I'd like to know your explanation.
