"Second, it's not poverty. It's lack of being a civilized human being."
Right on Mike. Poverty is just a cop out/excuse for criminal behavior. What's a difference between a rich thief (say Bernie Madoff) and a poor thief (say any random stick up kid)? The rich thief commits crime because he's "greedy". The poor thief has his crimes excused by social justice warriors because he's "impoverished". Oh, and the poor one will shoot you.
"Why do so many people, especially readers of this paper say they are against "sprawl", but then when someone proposes the exact opposite of sprawl, they get all upset?"
Because it's not being built in their trigger word area, aka a "food desert". But lets be honest, non-off brand grocery stores are not exactly clamoring to move in to the poor neighborhoods. Kudos to Tops for sticking it out on West Ave, Lake Ave, and Upper Falls.
mlscott - What about banning ownership of a tank with a functional 76mm cannon, because that's something you can buy in the US. I don't hear anyone calling for a ban on these.
Why are people focused on rifles? They're the 6th leading cause of homicide, following handguns, knives, Fists/legs, blunt objects, and shotguns. But we're mad about rifles because what, democrats and the media told you to be mad about them?

MB - " Less guns equals less shootings and no guns equals no shootings."
No, no it doesn't, at all... Firearm deaths per 100k"
El Salvador 26.77
Number of guns per 100 people:
Saudi Arabia 35
TW - "AR" stands for "Armalite Rifle".
TW - "The group that will have the highest graduation rate will almost always be whose parent graduated from high school . . . from college . . . from graduate school, law school, medical school."
EXACTLYYYYYY - It's, again, a parenting issue. Poor kids don't need to be exposed to middle class kids to succeed. That almost sounds like elitism to me.
Luckily I have numbers for you:
4% two or more races
Doesn't seem too diverse anymore racially does it? RCSD has the top 3 racial populations represented by 10%+ each. Brighton has one, white people. *slow clap*
A quick poll for commenters here. If all city kids were transferred to ANY suburban school district, and the suburban kids went to the RCSD, which group do you think would (still) have the highest graduation rate?
