Mental health care in the US is a real mess. It is estimated that 25% of jail inmates display at least one symptom of a psychotic disorder, and there is very rarely any treatment options.Yep, they probably should have locked him up sooner then for his own good and that of the person he just murdered, and the others he maimed.
Wouldn't it also have been true to write:
A guy shooting someone over something stupid - hmmmm, that's new!
Well I guess it's ne way of getting your point over about masks.
It's shocking that some tw@t loses their sh@t over something as trivial as an argument over masks and resorts to gunplay.
In an English language sense, yes, since all “black guys” are in the group “guys”.
From a perspective of understanding who is more likely to shoot someone, not so much.
Just under half the total murders every year are committed by blacks. Whites account for a similar number, just under half. The balance is Asians, Indians etc, but only 5-10% or so. So blacks and whites, as ethnic groups are broadly equal in numbers of murders committed. The FBI publish annual stats on this, and it varies by year slightly. Example:
However, blacks account for 13% of the population, while whites account for 60% of the population. Blacks are therefore between 3x and 4x more murderous on a per-capita basis than other races.
This is an example of how stats can distort a view, however. Nearly all of the black murders will be in city areas, and indeed in the black areas of those cities. Where I live, there are almost no blacks at all. Nearly every murder, of which there are thankfully very few, will be committed by whites. So our ethnic murder rate will be almost 100% white offenders.
This map shows the distortion somewhat. Half the population (all races) of the US lives in the marked counties.
That’s for an area the size of Australia, or all of Western Europe.
Yes, however if a white cop had shot a black man, that would be all over the news and skin colour would have been reported - probably there would be riots or something like that.Wouldn't it also have been true to write: A guy shooting someone over something stupid - hmmmm, that's new!
