*Yawn* Murder prt 2
these people calling for Gun Control? do the math people! I have.
Crime rates, or rather the NUMBER of crimes go up...with population
growth. but the PERCENTAGE of total population that was killed so far
as I can ascertain for last 40+years...has stayed within, by and large
that 4-9 THOUSANDTHS of a percent of the population Case in point?
1960. Population 179,323175. Number of murders? 9110. percentage of the
total population? 5 THOUSANDTHS of a percent of the population. Mind
you the following are just pulling random years out of the statistics
and doing the percentages Year Population murders PoP[percentage of population] 1970 203,235,298 16000 8 THOUSANDTHS of a percent. 1976 214,659,000 18780 9 Thousandths of a percent. 1984 236,159,000 18690 8 thousandths " 1989 248,239,000 21500 9 thousandths " 1997 267,367,000 18208 7 thousandths " 2003 290,690,788 16528 6 thousandths" 2010 308,745,538 14748 5 thousands "
Other crimes also grow and drop in cycles. The differences in numbers
of say Robberies or Larcenies will make your head swim. Hell the number
of Burglaries in the US is back down to 1960's numbers and that's with
twice the population back then. Actually when you look at the numbers
with 1960 population vs 2010 population...the percentage differences are
staggering.The number of Robberies is back down to 1970's levels and
thats with half again the population we had then.However, since we're
talking about murders and guns...those numbers I've given are the only
ones that matter. Oh and by the way? The percentage of mass murders in
all these statistics? LESS than 1% of the THOUSANDTHS of a percent, for
20yrs and more.
Okay I think I've beat the shit out of this enough in the last 48hrs here and all over the inter netz. Next up? I'm not real happy with Penn State and the NCAA so I think I'll beat the shit out of them for a while. Look for that post later tonight or tomorrow
