deestafford--You make reference to some Blacks' citing "the wonders of the wonders of motherland Africa" (para) --I had occasion to spend one 180-day deployment to Chad, Africa as a Military Advisor--Actually I set up Flight-line/Shop Equipment and established the parameters for making "things work". Had no problem, at all, with the Chad Troops, but I was certainly glad to see the USA again!

Grant75 "It's not just a race problem, it's a human race problem..."(paraphrased)--You NAILED IT! I spent much of my Military career in what some call "Problematic times"50s-60s-70s! Not so! Black troops were an integral part of my world and were treated like everyone else--No EXCEPTIONS! I did not tolerate "whiners" of any complexion and I made that fact "PERFECTLY CLEAR" from the git-go. WORKED FOR ME!

I have seen a set of circumstances (No father to "Put a #9 boot in a #3 rear end as corrective action and a Mom who does not insure School work is done promptly/properly) that GUARANTEE The resultant disaster(s) commonplace in one segment of our society! And I do NOT speak of a Color of Society! Indifferent, indolent parents come in all colors! However, at present, it seems more common in some formats! That's where the real BLAME lies!

FLWelcome to "the IDIOT CLUB"! But do not have a nice day!
Iguman-I share your concern as to "why this criminal had a handgun in NYC"--I would amend that to read "in NYC or anywhere in a civilized community"! But let me tell what troubles me even more than that concern--And that's why do these "Feel good and the problem will disappear" bleeding hearts expect (almost demand) that I feel compassion for scum bags like the gunman! GOOD Riddance of bad RUBBISH!
I suspect some of these "for hire" posters pay subscription, U reckon?
I have never been a "Big Fan" of ANY police Force, be it Local, State, federal or Military. Bt fortunately, they (Police) did not work FOR me, so I recognized them for exactly what they were/ARE: A very necessary part of a Free Society! I find it reprehensible that ANY Parent in America would teach a malleable CHILD to hate the Law Officers in Society! We, Society, are paying a steep price for this subversive behavior exhibited by far too many American Citizens! FOR SHAME!!
Well, "Hoopty DOO! I have been White all my Life (so far) and I am PRETTY OLD! But I haven't a clue as to what (if anything) Mr Hooligan (sp?) had in mind! Nor do I care--I well remember an American Embassy Consulate trying to convince me that marrying "an Asian" was probably not a good idea (that was in 1970)--As usual, I did not take advice readily--and 44 years after the fact we are both satisfied with choices made! So there Mr Holligan!
The short response to "Is one act more heinous that the other" is NO! I have written, repeatedly, on this thread that "War is bad and EVIL Shiite, and should be avoided if at all possible!" We all know, that the total absence of WAR (in some form)is likely Impossible or nearly so ; therefore "We" America et al simply does the best we with can with what we've got! "Torture" is likely in the "eye of the beholder" for lack of a better standard. I do NOT agree with the widespread use of DRONES any more than I ever have "saturation Bombing"; However,, like I said: War is Bad and Evil and should be avoided if Possible! Glad I'm too old to have any active part of any of this CRUD anymore! ( U believe that??

I wonder if KPar is still confused!? Seemed pretty well "cut and dried", to me, anyway!
