If hammers are banned, what else is left? Fists. People have died getting punched. My point is that banning a particular object will not stop someone from committing murder. If someone has a violent mentality, has a "live by the sword, die by the sword" attitude, has deep reserves of hatred and anger, and no regard for the law, nothing will stop someone from doing certain things. England, where guns are all but banned, shootings still take place. Stabbings take place.

I said race is a social construct. Not intelligence. Intelligence is measured by how you see the wrold, how you solve problems and how you approach them with a level of sophistication and you lack all of those things. Intelligent people Are always looking for the facts, not what bolsters their pov. A person of any race can be just as intelligent as anyone else. White racists like you are the most mentally inferior beings on the planet becuase you allow propaganda, emotion, hate, jealously and a bunch of morons who peddle master race screeds to corrupt your minds. Along with Islamic radicals, Christian fundamentalists, hardcore leftists, right wingers and others who lack any critical thinking skills.

When I hear diatribes about how people with african ancestry lack intelligence, I point to George H W Bush, a member of the elites. Or Sarah Palin. The Alaskian Barbarian who said she she can see Russia from wherever she lives. She's a master at sophistry but a complete idiot nonetheless. I mean, I could name many more idiots who are white or European with a braint of an ant, but that would take up an entire thread just to prove how stupid you are.

I don't know why there are people who think blacks are less attractive and intelligent as nonblacks. It seems insane.

This is the height of black achievement:



Pretty impressive, if you ask me.

I'll let someone else hand you your head on a platter. Obviously you (and your mother) don't get out much, judging from your posts on CD. Or maybe you just have too much time on your hands. Maybe you should get out more, see what blacks and other races have accomplished. Maybe that will motivate you to actually do something with your life instead of trolling message boards.

What are you talking about? I said I was impressed with black achievement. Are you saying you don't think the mudhut is an impressive high water mark for a people?

As a person branded with schizophrenia and nearly institutionalized himself, I'm just glad my human/civil rights are inalienable and supersede the nonsense ideas of you armchair psychiatrists and junior eugenicists on here.

The violent mentally ill must be treated the same way since most are incurable and would need a secure facility for life.

Don't see any racial differences here. Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer were Caucasian.

Short of those options, states like NY in particular should be finally forced to recognize the inherent right of self-defense encoded in the Constitution of this land. If hammer man's "right" to terrorize society needs to be protected for some reason, then my right to put him down like a dog when he snaps should also be protected.

Thank god I can carry a gun 24/7 in the New New York we live in. I feel terrible for those who respect the 2nd Amendment who cannot. I feel nothing for those who vote Dem, support anti-gun causes and then get victimized. Actually, I laugh when that happens.
^^^^ This type of insane thinking is exactly why I left the mental death system and never looked back. It's eugenics in disguise, and is as dangerous and destructive as the Hammer guy himself.

Nevermind the fact that what you're suggesting is barbaric and inhumane.

Nevermind the fact that it's completely unconstitutional and would never be legally allowed anyway.

Nevermind the fact that there is no objective medical standard for anything called "mental illness", and this is the main reason why the "mentally ill" (self included) are allowed to roam the street in the first place.

Nevermind the fact that, statistically-speaking, people branded with schizophrenia are more likely to be victims of violence than perps.

Nevermind the fact that the Hammer dude could just be a sociopath who simply doesn't care about human life and his supposed "disorder" might have nothing to do with it.

No! Everyone's rights should be up for grab because *you* say so, and all that's needed is an arbitrary label and some public fears stoked.

Thank God the world doesn't work that way in 2015.

Seems to be too many cases where people are out on the streets seriously injuring or even killing other people and are not in an institution where they belong.
Because institutions in most applications are unconstitutional, and "mental instability" is conjecture.

He's been in and out of mental institutions and in constant run-ins with the law, so obviously he didn't just become a menace overnight now did he?

Psychotropic drugs have actually been implicated in causing an increase in dopamine receptors in the brain via rebound effect, i.e. they indirectly lead to enhanced symptoms during sudden withdrawal...and people stop taking them because they are neurotoxic and have horrible side effects.

Medication is the problem, not the solution.
