“Normally a new inmate would go for four, five cartons of cigarettes, more if he’s a celebrity. Nagin may be famous, but he’s a boring little bitch, he talks too much, and he has a bony ass.”

Nagin, a Democrat who left office in 2010, was convicted on 20 counts ranging from bribery and fraud to tax evasion. He reported to a federal prison in Texas on Monday.

The majority of all violent crime in Sweden is committed by a small number of people. They are almost all male (92%) who early in life develops violent criminality, substance abuse problems, often diagnosed with personality disorders and commit large number non-violent crimes. These are the findings of researchers at Sahlgrenska Academy who have examined 2.5 million people in Swedish criminal and population registers.
In this study, the Gothenburg researchers matched all convictions for violent crime in Sweden between 1973 and 2004 with nation-wide population register for those born between 1958 to 1980 (2.5 million).
Four percent convicted. Of the 2.5 million individuals included in the study, 4 percent were convicted of at least one violent crime, 93,642 individuals in total. Of these convicted at least once, 26 percent were re-convicted three or more times, thus resulting in 1 percent of the population (23,342 individuals) accounting for 63 percent of all violent crime convictions during the study period.

The Right Way to Combat Gun Violence: Most gun control ideas are irrelevant or impossible. Steve Chapman | February 25, 2013
Public policy is a lot like math: No matter what the problem, the wrong answers are far more numerous than the right ones. This is particularly true on the subject of mass shootings and other firearms violence, which have stimulated a new fervor for barking up the wrong tree.
Many liberals think the answer to mass shootings and street crime lies in stricter gun regulation: banning “assault weapons,” limiting the capacity of magazines or, in their unrestrained moments, adopting ultra-stringent laws like those in Britain or Australia.
But most of these ideas are irrelevant or impossible. Even if the Second Amendment didn’t prevent it, Americans would never stand for a near-total ban on ownership of semiautomatic weapons, a la Australia, or of handguns, as in Britain. You might as well expect Nebraska to build 300 miles of oceanfront beaches. Continue reading →
Consider how we’ve come to fill in what news reports omit. Who actually reads about violent “unruly youths” and pictures Dick and Jane gone bad? How did it get to where official denial of racial motive is its surest confirmation?
It’s impossible to have an ‘honest dialogue’ about racial violence. We’re not supposed to notice, much less comment. Yet we do notice. For instance, we’re asked to believe it’s simple robbery when whites are knocked down and beaten nearly to death, then robbed, and the perps post a video on a black web site. Oh wait, it’s about here we’re supposed to say it doesn’t matter if the perps are black, white or green. It matters to the perps, it should matter to us. And yes, it’s beginning to matter. For those who still don’t understand, imagine the hysteria were the races reversed. Continue reading →
