    And then I could go back when there are none of them, novel idea.

    No queues at the Smithsonian or NASA...

    Seems like it would be good for your wellbeing. We can't have you being 'over' things.

    It's been a few weeks since the last gun related mass murder in a US school... on balance of probability, one must be due soon.

    1012 people have been shot in 152 days this year in Chicago. Where are the mass media outcry and protests?

    Is that just gangbangers and crackheads shooting each other though or kids being murdered in cold blood?

    Is this a dodgy area? Like, would you let your 13yr old out there after dark?

    Not trying to downplay anyone getting shot, but a kid getting shot after dark in a dodgy part of town is no way comparable to a kid being shot in their classroom.

    When almost everyone has a gun or two laying around at home every burglary potentially has another firearm ending up in the hands of criminals. But that's okay, they are probably only criminals because they were bullied.

    Yes most are. Also, there are some question of crimes not being as widely reported in the North side because it is more diverse and supposed to be a wealthier part of Chicago. My guess would be that they don't want the world to know that the entirety of Chicago is a shit hole. But my evidence is anecdotal from people who live there.
