You are correct. Shootings of this nature do in fact happen in other "advanced" countries. However, I think if we look at the frequency of this kind of shooting in other advanced countries, we'll find that America still have more shooting, more frequently, than most (or all) the other "advanced" countries combined. To draw a comparison, if we use "school shootings" as an example, ignoring all other types of shootings, Canada, for example has had fifteen school shootings since 1884. In the United States, there have been 168 school shooting events since 2000 To put this another way: America has had as many school shootings SO FAR THIS YEAR as Canada has had in it's ENTIRE HISTORY.
It does happen in other "advanced" countries. It has happened here in Canada, it has happened in Germany, in the UK. The fact that it ONLY has happened 7 times in 7 years in the US -the third most populous country in the world behind China and India- is actually remarkable in it's rarity. It's actually a pretty good record, statistically.
What would it take for a Basic Income to finally take hold?
So yeah, a UBI would be lovely. Finally some liberty, finally more negotiating power for the worker (can decline any job offer without repression). But the shit would need to hit the fan hard before there can be any room within the political sphere for it.

The end of this video seemed abrupt. Is there more?
Misleading title. Was expecting tears.
"All of these things are predicted by the IPCC—I mean, not the permanent darkness thing, I don't think that's meant to be scientific. But yes, as we reported in May this year, Europe faces freshwater shortages; Asia can expect more severe flooding from extreme storms; North America will see increased heat waves and wildfires, which can cause death and damage to ecosystems and property. Especially in poor countries, diminished crop yields will likely lead to increased malnutrition, which already affects nearly 900 million people worldwide. So, in all, well done Newsroom. Informative, accurate, if a little heavy-handed on the doom and gloom." /Mother Jones fact check *Quality piece, Newsroom.
Officials released officially numbers that officially there were 300-500 protesters as officially counted by officials. Official.
Title may be misleading. He might have been shot for being black. That said, the officer does sound sorry once he realized he fucked up. The injured man is lucky that the cop was such a bad shot. Still, the way the officer reacts reminds me of the behavior described here: http://videosift.com/video/A-Brief-History-of-the-United-States
*blocked in Canada. Episode date?
People choosing to face death in border forests rather than stay at home or deal with border checkpoint laws? This is going in my Biopolitics playlist.
