The question of crime, punishment, and measures to prevent crime has been discussed today.

The European Union has a population of 447 million.
In 2019 there were 3,875 intentional homicides recorded in the EU.
There were 1,567,500 burglaries and 4,801,400 thefts in the EU in 2019, the lowest numbers since 2010


The US has a population of 334 million.
There were 21,570 murders and non-negligent cases of manslaughter in the US in 2020.
There were 6,450,000 cases of property crimes reported in 2020. www.statista.com/...

Maybe the US could learn something by studying the methods that the European Union countries are using to prevent crimes.
Jack Dorsey says he is leaving Twitter and the company is moving on. I am not sure what moving on means but I hope it involves stopping the rancid bullshit from left and right. People can tweet all they want but what is happening now is destroying the country and threatening the First Amendment rights especially if an autocratic government comes to power and does not like what is tweeted.

Canada's Indigenous Health Expert Fired After Pulling Liz Warren Pocahontas Act

Canada's top expert on indigenous health issues has been fired from her job and lost her professorship after suspicious colleagues revealed that her claims of Native American heritage were complete bullshit.

Public health expert Carrie Bourassa, a total fraud, was the scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health, She was suspended on Nov. 1, just five days after the CBC revealed the truth.

"With a feather in her hand and a bright blue shawl and Métis sash draped over her shoulders, Carrie Bourassa made her entrance to deliver a TEDx Talk at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon in September 2019, where she detailed her personal rags-to-riches story.

“My name is Morning Star Bear,” she said, choking up. “I’m just going to say it — I’m emotional.”

The crowd applauded and cheered.

“I’m Bear Clan. I’m Anishinaabe Métis from Treaty Four Territory,” Bourassa said, explaining that she grew up in Regina’s inner city in a dysfunctional family surrounded by addiction, violence and racism. -CBC"

It was all a lie.

After a lengthy trace of Bourassa's family tree, it was uncovered that her ancestors were in fact Polish, Russian and Czech immigrant farmers, not Métis nation natives.

"It makes you feel a bit sick," said Métis expert Janet Smylie at the University of Toronto, who worked with Bourassa on a book covering indigenous parenting. "To have an impostor who is speaking on behalf of Métis and indigenous people to the country about literally what it means to be Métis … that’s very disturbing and upsetting and harmful."

Colleagues grew suspicious after Bourassa began claiming she had Anishinaabe and Tlingit blood, and began dressing up like a stereotypical Native American - starting with a 2019 appearance in full tribal regalia to give a TEDx Talk at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon.

"When I saw that TEDx, to be quite honest, I was repulsed by how hard she was working to pass herself off as indigenous," said associate professor of Indigenous studies, Winona Wheeler, a documented member of Manitoba's Fisher River Cree Nation - who started digging into Bourassa's heritage before taking her findings to the media.

After she was confronted with the evidence, Bourassa changed her story - now claiming she had been adopted into the Métis community by an unnamed friend of her deceased grandfather.

"Even though Clifford passed, those bonds are even deeper than death because the family has taken me as if I was their blood family" she said, adding "In turn, I serve the Métis community to the best of my ability."

If only she was a sitting US Democrat Senator! One who fooled the voters in MA, but they could have cared less. Tells you all you need to know about Democrat MA voters.

Uganda lost its only international airport, the Entebbe International Airport, to China for failing to repay a loan, reports have said.

The government has failed to reverse a loan agreement with China which had repayment conditions for attaching its only airport.

In 2015, China’s Export-Import (EXIM) Bank lent Uganda $207 million at two per cent upon disbursement. The loan, meant for the expansion of Entebbe airport, came with a maturity period of 20 years including a seven-year grace period, News X reported.

However, as per international media reports, the Ugandan government waived off the clause for international immunity for securing the loan, following which the Chinese lender can retake possession of Entebbe International Airport without any international arbitration.

A statement from the Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (UCAA) reportedly suggested that some provisions in the Financing Agreement with China exposed Entebbe International Airport and other Ugandan assets to be attached and taken over by Chinese lenders upon arbitration in Beijing.

Last week, Ugandan Finance Minister Matia Kasaija had apologized to Parliament for “mishandling” the multi-million dollar loan.

According to the latest media reports, a delegation of Ugandan officials also visited China earlier this year in an attempt to renegotiate the clauses of the loan agreement. However, the visit was unsuccessful as the Chinese authorities refused to allow any alteration in the original terms of the deal.

How does China repo an airport?

They will help them

"So it's easy to criticize, but they're really criticizing science because I represent science.“ -Fauci

Nobody represents science. Nobody.

Not Newton.
Not Darwin.
No Einstein.

Certainly not Fauci.
