nd today, and tomorrow.
Not in the same general area, and not by one person, but stats indicate that one person is murdered every 30 minutes in the U.S.
I’m not trying to trivialize the murders at Virginia Tech. But Americans (U.S.) tend to have very short memories about our feelings. Our collective sadness tends to fade when television resumes its normal programming. Except when it’s in the interest of the politicians to keep us in fear – 9/11.
With a presidential election down the pike, the politicians don’t want a discussion of gun control. Both sides would just as sooon avoid it. So there will be no congressional hearings about violence. There will be no posturing on who’s to blame. There will be no action taken.
And the murders will continue at the highest rate in the industrial world.
