Detroit police are touting an achievement the department says is the first of its kind in months: No homicides or non-fatal shootings in 36 hours.

In a news release, police also said the city is experiencing a year-to-date decrease in homicides and non-fatal shootings compared to 2012.

It is the first time someone has been killed in an armed police operation in Iceland, officials say.

about 80-90 murders a year in London. I guess that puts it at one every 100 hours or so.

or pitbulls. people don't seem to like pitbulls. poor little pitbulls.

out of curiosity, when does the nanny state apply? I get the label in the case of drugs (i need the state to protect me from myself), but what about when I want the state to protect me from someone else rabid dog?

The term applies when the government is being excessive. From a decision analysis perspective, I would say it applies when the total harm done by the presumably protective intent exceeds the total harm avoided by it.

I'd say leash laws are a good example (except in cities).

For me at least, a lot comes into play when it is hypocritical. For example, the state doesn't protect you from someone else's out of control car. Yet there are no NannyStaters demanding they be banned.

oh, but they do. drinking and driving is banned. licences are tested for and given out. etc etc all sort of big govt interference.

a country without cars is something that will have all sorts of problems. America without guns will just be canada.

Then we agree, it isn't banned. I'd rather have no cars than turn into Canada (I wish Canadians the government of their choosing, but that isn't what I would choose).

why? is the convinience of dog owners more important than the health and lifes of humans?

Ban dog ownership with exceptions for working dogs. Almost all problems solved.
