Countries with highest murder rates


Recommended Posts

OK, this thread calls for my favorite Bushism of all time:

"For every fatal shooting, there were roughly three non-fatal shootings. And, folks, this is unacceptable in America. It's just unacceptable. And we're going to do something about it."

We fix that we can get above 24 no problem. The problem is clearly not guns; the problem is that people can't shoot straight. ;)

I love South Africa.Been there several times.But some of the areas are oout of control.Roving gangs of youth oprhaned by A.I.D.S.

One of my old rugby coaches was from S. Africa. He told us that in certain areas, you have to goto the ATM 2 at a time. One to use the ATM, the other to watch your back. I think it was in Johannesburg.
