-For anyone who LOVES to watch the news and thinks America is too violent and unsafe, watch this.

-For anyone who HATES watching the news because you think that they twist everything, watch this.

-For anyone, ANYONE who has ANY type of opinion on Gun Control (for or against) watch this.

It will be worth your time.

the guy hits it right on the head. I couldn't stand all those Facebook/Twitter posts comparing USA to other countries and them not taking population into account.

The definition of violent crime is different between the two he chooses to view.

The Home Office defines violent crime as robbery, sexual offences, and a group of Violence Against the Person offences ranging from assault without injury, through wounding, to homicide. These are counted to the crime statistics even if the victim doesn't press charges and the police discover it.

According to the FBI: violent crime is composed of four offenses: murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault.... (if the charges are dropped the statistic isn't added

So the guy's lists are really full of BS

Assualt without injury vs aggrivated assualt

for the record Aggrivated assualt is usually accompanied by the use of a weapon or by other means likely to produce death or great bodily harm.



So what your really comparing is a selective list of violent crimes vs an open list of ranging crimes. Taking that information and saying look at how much less violent crimes we have even though our murder rate is higher....

this is a really interesting video. i think there is a lot more information to be dissected here, but that would have to in a much longer video. i subscribed to this guys youtube channel just to see what else he comes up with.
