This thread is an attempt to divert attention away from the actual mass shootings (as opposed to gang violence) that continue to rock the nation.

Look over there! Gang members are shooting each other!

Meanwhile, pay no attention to the mass slaughter being perpetrated on citizens who are not gang members, not living in gang-infested neighborhoods, not involved in drug trafficking or other illegal activities, but who are just trying to go about their daily lives.

Nope! Nothing to see there!!!

I thought we were well past people being responsible for their own actions.

Hell, some cities are proposing not arresting people who steal if they are poor.

The causes and solutions to each are very different.
Are you forgetting the various school shootings and the Aurora, CO theater shootings and may others, as well?

I would add:

3. Mentally ill people (usually young)

Obama must be to blame somewhere in there, too.

Baltimore and Chicago have mass shootings on a daily basis and the media never touches it. Agenda much?

You beat me to it. Threads like this are a classic diversionary tactic. Won't work, anybody can see through them.

no we are still responsible, however we have educated people within the "social sciences" trying to determine what makes the human animal tick...when there are in fact too many variables to accurately measure the human condition with any degree of accuracy

Gang shootings in gang-infested neighborhoods are not the same as mass slaughter of non-gang members in non-gang infested neighborhoods just going about their lives.

Are you also surprised that people die regularly in war zones? Because that's essentially what some of these areas are.

But you know that already.

Agenda much?

White American terrorism is an issue in this country; stop using black Americans to deflect from the issue of white American domestic terrorism.


Why don't you people address your angry and violent white sons?

Sounds like something we'd try in a war zone in Afghanistan it Syria
