Even in the US, there's no-go zones with crime galore
On September 11, 2001, about 3,000 fine human beings were killed in New York City, Virginia, and Pennsylvania by Moslem fanatics. So far, there have been no other large-scale attacks by Moslem terrorists on American soil.Very true. Crime, no matter what form it's in, cannot be ignored. And gangs who turn neighborhoods into ghetto zones and menace any authorities who enter are breaking the law in trying to control turf as "their own".
However, in the five and a half years since September 11, 2001, there have been roughly 40,000 killings by gangs and gang members in this United States of America, mostly in the African-American and Hispanic sections of large cities. Huge swaths of major American cities, especially my home city of Los Angeles, are "no-go" zones for law-abiding people from outside the neighborhoods and even police go into them reluctantly. The innocent women, children, old folks and non-gansgsta men in the communities are living in a nonstop reign of terror.
It's just not true that there has been no terrorism in America since 9/11. There is terrorism every day and every hour. It's just not coming from Moslems from countries that hate us so it doesn't get counted. It's coming from our own young people of color and it is simply ignored. We in the suburbs watch it on TV and thank God for our walls and our local police or for our walled communities. But what's life like for the Americans -- just as American as we rich people are -- who live in this horror day by day?
This is something that needs to be dealt with.
