    I dont really care that much about if 33000 people die in your country of gun violence, honestly, I just like to point out to other people how wrong they are.
    I mean Im not doing this to improve the world. Im litterally just here cause I like to learn new things and then prove people wrong when they claim falsehoods.

    This feels good man
    https://www.nationalgangcenter.gov/Survey-Analysis/Measuring-the-Extent-of-Gang-Problems
    "The total number of gang homicides reported by respondents in the NYGS sample averaged nearly 2,000 annually from 2007 to 2012"
    liar liar pants on fire.
    33000 gun related deaths yearly. only 2000 gang homicides.

    Research has concluded that medical field workers who got into the field without the motivation to help others, perform better.
    Not joking at all.

    source: some TED talk I watched

    Ted talks are fun stuff, here's a good one.


    As an aside, the election is over. Wouldn't it be a bit better to just make a politics thread already? At least you guys could talk about any politics instead of just the usa's primarily.

    I tried finding it couldnt. I found that there were 700 homicides in 2016, up 250 from 450 in 2015 thats about it. Duno how many are gang violence related.


    I did find however that chicago isnt even that bad
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_by_murder_rate

    new orleans, baltimore st louis and detroit are the worst ones

    it started on the oreilly factor
    [​IMG]
    no source for it. useless percentages since we're only counting 25 days of 2017.

    i wonder why they didnt use 2016 data and compare it to 2015.... hmmmm...

    Chicago's 2016 homicides: How we got here.
    The city saw a surge in gun violence in 2016: 762 murders, 3,550 shooting incidents, and 4,331 shooting victims, according to a statement released by the department on Sunday. There were 480 murders in 2015, the most in the city since 1997

    complete, I don't mind debating with you but stop trying to second guess what I do or think its very annoying, especially you are always wrong stick to facts.

    and its common knowledge how bad things are n Chicago, the fact you don't know that shows you are uniformed
