    The Elephant In The Room

    1 dead, 20 wounded in Chicago suburb strip mall parking lot during Juneteenth celebration.

    Now, all those in favor of gun control are always overlooking the real cause for most of the gun crimes and it's always the elephant in the room....

    I wonder who is responsible for this shooting...

    Yes, that is the elephant in the room and everyone is afraid to talk about it.

    Our school system is the culprit. The huge level of drop outs or poor scoring on Sat tests ends up in one simple equation. When a person lacks the skills to be employable, their options are limited. Money is needed to survive and/or thrive and those who lack employable skills will more often than not resort to crime to get the needed resources to survive. I live just outside Portland Or, where for years 50% of the high school students either failed or dropped out. The powers that be realize this so they throw more money at the teachers which in my opinion is like adding oil to an engine with 3 bent piston rods. A teacher should teach at the highest ability and the level of salary should have zero impact on their efforts. $12,000 to $18,000 per student per class room should be more than enough to provide students a future, yet they still ask for more.

    You can't teach those who are unwilling to learn.

    (from the article)

    In a scene reminiscent of surrender, videos captured police officers standing by idly as teens jumped on cars and looted businesses. Despite the widespread destruction, the CPD made only two arrests, leaving residents feeling abandoned and unprotected. Shockingly, officers even prevented one resident from retrieving her vandalized vehicle, showcasing a lack of concern for the victims affected by this wave of lawlessness.
    And the "antis" wonder WHY people are buying more and more firearms.
    DUH !!

    On crime, college-educated Democrats are living in their own universe

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...95aac35e&ei=13

    "A poll released by the Survey Center on American Life last week confirms this. It found that only 37% of college-educated Democrats believe crime is a “very big” problem compared to two-thirds of Democrats without a college degree, two-thirds of Republicans without a college degree, and 55% of Republicans with a college degree. One-fifth of college-educated Democrats say crime is either a “small” problem or no problem at all — the highest proportion among any group."

    It would be nice to see at least one western European country stand up and take the gloves off. I think that might start a trend. Maybe....
