"Hundreds of innocent people are murdered every day."

hundreds every day?

nyc is at about 400 homicides a year

i would think that is above the national average

so at 15K murders a year give or take - nationally that doesnt average out to "hundreds a day"

Meiz said...

Did Keith say only in America? I don't recall seeing that.

Vice Presidente said...

and i'd guess a third of those 15,000 murders are not innocent people

Vice Presidente said...

oh i have to give a fuck about people being murdered in haiti now?

the fuck out of here with that bullshit

that's like the celebrities tweeting yesterday, here's one that really grabbed my ass:

"Sad for Boston. But what about Syria where thousands of people have been killed?"

I'm American. Not Syrian. It's nice when they compare a terrorist attack to a fucking civil war in a arabic state. they've only been killing each other for a million years.

Jugdish said...

there are a lot of people killed everyday, I get that. however, in America, there are not bombing attacks everyday that are designed to kill dozens of people. it doesn't mean the lives of the people lost in something like this are anymore valuable than those lost in one of the everyday killings, but events like yesterday just scare people more. Thank God those kinds of things aren't an everyday occurrence.

Meiz said...

Well it seems management found somebody to take the hood accounts from the whitest black woman I know. I'm not the most excited about her getting the offer before I ever got one, but the only logical explanation is that she's getting the hood accounts nobody wants.

Jugdish said...

did you apply for another position?

BLUE said...

how could they not know that meiz is hood

Jugdish said...

its on the form

Vice Presidente said...

"Two and only two explosive devices were found yesterday," Patrick said, adding that many other parcels were examined. "There were no unexploded explosive devices found."

not 5 like some outlets were reporting last night

Meiz said...

"did you apply for another position?"

No, they evidently up & offered an inside sales position to the chick from the hood that is temping in customer service.

Vice Presidente said...

sounds like they just were hiring a temp permanently

Meiz said...

Yeah, she's going from $9/hr to at least $15. Should get her off welfare though, so there's that.

Meiz said...

Still more than me, so fuck that shit.

Vice Presidente said...

good to hear

Vice Presidente said...

tell her i said congratulations

Jugdish said...

Still more than me, so fuck that shit.

She just told me she doesn't really want the job if she has to sell.

Unreal. Enjoy the projects.

Meiz said...

In case you didn't see, Yovani got an OWI last night

Keef said...

ok, my fault. Dozens. Point being, innocent people are killed every day in America and you don't hear about 95% of them. but i "should" care about something that makes front page news

Meiz said...

Deluxe & cmdeluxe are in the business of scalping Brewers tickets to their family & friends. The jig is up. Stop sending me that email.

Jugdish said...

but i "should" care about something that makes front page news


you don't have to care, but you can at least understand why others do, right?

Jugdish said...

i forgot what this debate is about

Meiz said...

I don't even care

Jugdish said...

because it doesn't really affect you

Jugdish said...

putting my other house back on the market within the next two weeks. reneters were cool with me putting it up before they move out. Hoping to unload it so im not caught in double mortgage payments for an extended period of time

Meiz said...

Meiz said...

Done!

Jugdish said...

Vice Presidente said...

"She just told me she doesn't really want the job if she has to sell."

shocker

Vice Presidente said...

"but i "should" care about something that makes front page news"

so you don't care about attacks on America becuase you don't care about people getting murdered daily?

at least your a consistent as.

BLUE said...

fuck that, i'm sick of all these bombings and terrorist acts

Keef said...

I meant care more about it because it's front page. I don't not care about it. It's still a sad story. And I can see why others would care more about it if they have someone close to them that's affected by it. My whole point from my comment last night is people tend to want to put theyselves* into a position where they are part of the story. So when you live near where a tragedy occurs, it's a bigger deal. When in reality, it's really not a bigger deal for a majority of the people. Yeah you live in that city, but so do millions of people.
An example of what I'm talking about is some chick I know put something on FB about how her dad was at the marathon, and that he was about a mile from where the explosion was. And her mom & brother were supposed to go but they ended up not going, and then she says "pray for my family". WHAT? This screams that someone just wants to be attached to a national story because then they get the "oh I'm so sorry to hear that. Praying for your family" comments even though in the grand scheme of things this had, at best, very minimal impact on her and her family.

Keef said...

Wow, you're really really really bad at reading. At no point did I say I didn't care. Never said it.
In fact, what I said was all of these stories are really sad, but it's just as sad when a 6 month old gets shot in the face and killed by a teenager who was trying to rob the mom but she didn't have any money, as it is when a couple of people die from a bomb explosion.

i can understand that. you can pray for anything though. i guess it would be one thing if they couldn't reach him.

i ate at a boston market the other day...this story hits so close to home

Keef said...

jug, don't misinterpret what I'm saying. I know people are affected by this. But I also know that there are people that aren't really affected by it that want to attach themselves to it because it draws attention

i get what you're saying. i saw a few fb posts like that. one chick talking about how she used to live there in 2007. no mentions of people she knew there...all about her

Meiz said...

"Wow, you're really really really bad at reading."

It's maddening

Keef said...

The two bombs that ripped through the crowds at the Boston Marathon, killing three people and wounding more than 170, were fashioned out of pressure cookers and packed with shards of metal, nails and ball bearings, a person briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Jugdish said...

i heard around 25-30 people lost legs

tem said...

Thanks for the spot start

tem said...

I'm following my own advice on this boston stuff...I'm not reading anything until at least 5 more days. That way I don't read all sorts of wrong info.

Keef said...

You're reading LOV

Vice Presidente said...

"aren't really affected by it that want to attach themselves to it because it draws attention"

i get it, i dont believe any of those people are here though

Vice Presidente said...

"Magic's kid is gay?"

welcome to last week

Me too. Maybe not a full 5 days though.

People are OUTRAGED over this Gallardo OWI. It's pretty funny.

Keef said...

In Wisconsin, first-offense drunken driving is a citation, not a misdemeanor or felony charge. McLaughlin told ESPN Wisconsion that Gallardo faces nearly $778 in fines for drunken driving and for unsafe driving ($300 for DUI, $300 for his level of intoxication and $178.80 for deviating lanes).


weak sauce

Keef said...

mize is the only person I've erve* known who calls it OWI

Meiz said...

That's the terminology I was taught by the police. DUI and OWI are different things here.

Meiz said...

Driving Under the Influence encompasses drugs and minors. And I believe there was a range under .10 that people of age could get ticketed for before we went to .08.

Operating While Intoxicated is what is says right there.

BLUE said...

"But I also know that there are people that aren't really affected by it that want to attach themselves to it because it draws attention"

i'm looking at H when I read this comment

BLUE said...

I've heard of DUI and DWI, but never OWI

what kind of doctor's you got in wiskY?

Vice Presidente said...

mets game pushed back

still shoveling

Meiz said...

"weak sauce"

haha. I'd like to thank the Tavern League Of Wisconsin for our toothless drunk driving laws.

Vice Presidente said...

Boston. F*cking horrible.

I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, “Well, I’ve had it with humanity.”

But I was wrong. I don’t know what’s going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

But here’s what I DO know. If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we’re lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they’re pointed towards darkness.

But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, “The good outnumber you, and we always will.”
