And your remedy, Jedi, is what? Forgive me; I'm just one of those "idiot liberals," but I can't tell what reality you'd prefer. No immigration? No immigrants from third-world nations? Fully and ethnically segregated schooling--in order to "avoid" the problem in the first place? Gated communities for all? Hard prison time for school-aged offenders?

Tension and strife are human realities in a complex world. We may reasonably disagree on what causes them in certain instances, and on the most effective means of deterring dangerous behavior. Derisively and caustically insisting that you have a corner on morality simply makes a mockery out of effective discourse. But you'll just take a post like mine and double-down once again, won't you?

It's a good thing "everyone" agrees that all Democrats and liberals (not coterminous, of course, but that fact never slows you down!) condone violence. When you stop caricaturing those who think differently, people will also pay more attention to the merits of your arguments.

Unless, of course, your only goals are to incite and foment--and not to persuade.
