Before I agree with you here, please provide the official source for the thread.

All I am asking is for you to provide proof of your statement above...no malice is intended.

.......................

No further comment from me if the official source is provided. Coming to think of it, no further comment from me on this, one way or the other.

Yeah Mexico is more dangerous than both T&T and Jamaica too although we have higher per capita rates...OFFICIALLY..

So this is what I've been saying here for years,per capita does not tell the real story,it's about random and average decent people getting killed in all sorts of nice and everyday places doing nice regular everyday things..and I don't need you to validate it thanks,the UN has.

Look Bravos, me and you are boys but this shooting does litte to change stats. Yes, it increases the paranoia level but little to change stats. If you spread this shooting across all States, it would add up to one miniscule death per State.

Stats are the most efficient way to measure crime.

It's so unfair that because of its size Mexico isn't on that list,but frigging st kitts and Nevis on it based on twenty something murders a year. On one bridge in Mexico at any given day you can get more than that.

They kill police and soldiers by the scores,judges,lawyers,journalists,politicians etc. that per 100,000 thing doesn't tell the real story. How can 20 incidents of murder in st kitts be greater that tens of thousands in Mexico ?

Most people right here in T&T have never heard a gunshot,witnessed a murder or seen a murdered person/body in real life.


You have started a thread to justify your foolishness about "murders on a bridge in Mexico" said here some years ago.

But we digress...I have also stuck to my promise of "no further comment."

Statistically you're more likely to be randomly killed in the USA at a concert,school,mall,movie,work,restaurant etc.

Statistically the USA has much more deadly mass shootings killing decent law abiding citizens than anywhere else in the world.

Statistically the USA has many more random serial killers killing random people than anywhere else in the world.

Statistically the majority of people killed in T&T are involved in gang activity and reside in unsavory neighborhoods and 'hotspots'.

Look, pelon makes a good point about unreported crimes in Mexico but the fact that those murders are unreported, (most) indicates some kind of underground activity. In other words, those victims put themselves at high risk. The murder rate/stats (reported) would still apply (whatever that rate is) for law abiding citizens.

Not to mention in those places, many crimes are committed that never go on the books.

Although this has been my opinion from adam,for those having an opinion or contribution to the contrary here this is more than an opinion,this is the annual UN crime and safety report that we discussed here recently..


Although I always knew this,I didn't just make this up..

And thank god that other people know there's much more to a country than some idiots killing each other in some shit areas and not decent people and dey children getting killed in concerts and at the mall and Mcdonals .

For those persons interested in the quoted report from the United Nations please GOOGLE "UN Crime and Safety Report" and share with me any useful information on the matter at hand.

I'll be very much interested.

I wish them the best but I think the time has come for travel advisories to our Caribbean citizens,do we have to worry about Soca/Reggae concerts too?

The next time someone says "don't make this political, people are dead" I am going to go OFF. How many people have to be massacred in our country before we DO SOMETHING?!? School children - dead. Church goers - dead. Movie goers - dead. Concert attendees - dead. LGBTQIA folks at a bar - dead. Sikhs in a temple - dead. Muslim college students - dead. People standing in a line at a post office - dead. Kids on street corners in Chicago - dead.

Bravos per capita is a stat that is used to measure crime rate since population varies. It clearly is a more level way of looking at probabilities.

Is it the most accurate thing in the world? Of course not. But it is more accurate than your pronouncement of "US being more dangerous" than Jamaica, etc.

Honestly how can you back up that statement that the US is more dangerous? Because you see terrorism on the TV? If you reject statistical analysis then don't you have to provide a replacement?

What exactly is your scientific replacement?
