    Yeah, it was pretty sick. I'm surprised you didn't hear about it before, though; it was a big story even in the US, where we normally have enough of our own crime to fill 20 newscasts a night!

    No, no I'd never heard of that, I think that's one of the sickest things anyone's ever told me EVER.

    And yeah, I'm living in DC right now for university, there is SO MUCH crime here its shocking - we actually have the highest crime rate in the whole USA. Every night on "News 4 at 10!" there's like 4 shootings in the southwestern district.

    I remember when I lived in Dallas, there'd be at least one murder on the news the next day, and what seemed like a child abduction every week, plus regular shootouts and standoffs and high-speed chases.

    It seems that something has gone seriously wrong with the social engineering and that tougher punishments are doing dick to stop crime. Perhaps it's time to take another tact?

    That would mean tackling poverty.

    You said it, disruptive, and we know that isn't going to happen with the current team in place, eh?
