@60 scroll down the article link you sent, moron, and you'll see our murder rate far exceeds that of western europe, japan, china, australia, etc..
And yeah, somehow the fact that our homicide rate per capita beats Ethiopia and El Salvador does not instill much patriotism in me.
I'm skeptical you've spent much time abroad given your posts, because if you had, you'd come to understand that this isn't the way that it *has* to be. No country is perfect, but for a "first-world" superpower, fuck.
America, fuck yeah. ughhhh!
