Sanchin: Should you send your kids to school? Yes! Despite the troubling trend you describe, the sheer horror of children being gunned down, and the instinctive urge to leap to protect that any parent would (Or should!) get from reading about these incidents, the fact is that they're very few and far between. You might worry about lightning striking your child, but you don't lock him/her in the house.

Is it fair? HELL NO! Shouldn't have happened and should be reversed if possible. That said, if our home grown juvenile-villain-who-got-away-with-it (So.Fla.'s very own Lionel Tate) is any indication, he'll soon be back in. It's to be hoped that while that happens, the only person this freak hurts is his former partner.

stay away from political discussions







With the big time difference, I did not have the opportunity to read Chanters reply and so have no idea why her post was deleted.

Whatever she may have said, whether political or otherwise, I for one will never ever be offended. The point I was making was that the peace and stability we enjoy over here is a direct result of draconian laws (prohibitive firearms legislation is just one topical example) left behind by our colonial administrators for which we are actually thankful; the mention of the SAS Regiment is to emphasise the sacrifice made by young British soldiers who fought and died in the steaming jungles, unnoticed and unheralded.

The volatile mix of race, religion and economics in this region is not something to play around with, and which the British public is now just beginning to understand first hand. I myself nearly lost my life in a racial riot back in the 60s, and so my passionate concern on this issue.

If the point is that draconian laws (on firearms for example) are an impingement on civil rights, then my view is that the people who shoot young school children or bomb buses are the greatest violators of human rights, not the prohibitive laws.

Chanters say something about not coming over here. Well, if you do change your mind, and I hope you do, you will be pleasantly surprised; that the laws may be seemingly harsh, but so is the curry

Take care, Chanters.

Sanchin, my apologies if this goes into the political again, but that just may be the nature of the thread.

Personally, I think we should bring back hanging. Take some good sturdy rope, find some nice tall trees, and hang these mofos up where everyone can see them.

Including the children? Therein lies your problem. How do you balance the means to combat an evil while at the same time do not create another one?
