Default Re: Why in the world are people committing suicide in the Superdome?

Of course senseless violence is wrong. However, that's what you get when you treat large parts of the population like trash, when they get hopeless and feel neglected and exploited. They want revenge, I guess.
It must be hard to be poor in the US. Differently from other countries, where most people are poor and there is a certain solidarity (Third World) or Europe, where few are really poor and there is social assistance, in the US most people are relatively rich and blame the poor for their state. Poor people also don`t vote. Therefore, they live in a no-man's land.
