I know it doesnt always work, but I believe that a great many of these situations can be resoved with humor rather than bravado .     When a drunk at a festival approaches you and asks for your bi

The girls even think he is a snob. But as my brother tried explaining to the girls – he is just a quiet person who only speak when spoken to and doesn’t think he is gods gift to women!

 

Therefore, he probably IS God's gift to women. Congratulations on raising a respectful son. :good:

Looking at his Facebook page is interesting to say the least. It is always fascinating to see how people portray/think of themselves.

 

Condolences.

I wonder what would reduce the number of murders in the Philippines?

It isnt always, or even usually, a foreigner, but far too often, it is.

 

Do the killers ever think of possible consequences?

 

Is it that the risks of getting caught are relatively low that makes it worth while?

 

Woulld tougher punishments make any difference?

 

Or is it just something that everyone should accept because "thats the way it is"?

That is the way its always been. I can tell you're a pessimist. An optimist would see that it helps reduce the population problem.

i suppose...that is if you are comparing this place with Mayberry RFD. thank goodness you are trained to protect yourself. you remind me of another esteemed member who is also a "highly trained" ex-serviceman, who is now living in his own self-inflicted home-prison setting.

 

just out of curiosity...and since you are an American like me, how does the drug and violent crime problem here in cebu compare to USA cities?

 

This topic isn't about me and should not be construed as such. Crime here is as bad as anywhere I've ever been and you know what? Legal, law abiding foreigners have no way to defend themselves against it. I cannot legally carry a handgun here, or even have one in my home. That's a huge pile of steaming excrement, I'm not some dirtbag after all. I met the requirements in the USA, and I never had any problems with anyone wanting to do some bullshit, petty crime, or anything else to me. You see, when perps know the target just might have some defense, it changes the dynamics of the crime dramatically. In most cases, there will be no crime because most criminals are chicken shit. They don't want fair odds, only easy victims.

 

You asked me about American cities and drug / violent crime. I will say this about it. If you look at the cities where all of this is taking place, you will find that they have made it nearly impossible for the average, non connected person to own a handgun for self defense. I'm talking places like Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, and Boston. So there you go, disarm the people and crime will flourish. That is the way I see it, if you don't see it that way, I don't care. As we aren't in this together, contrary to what many of you would like to believe.

 

I'm done with this topic, so now all of the snipes and haters out there can post shit about how I'm paranoid, ex military, anti social or whatever bat shit weirdness you can conjure up. All you people do is nit pick shit and miss the bigger picture.

That is like comparing apples to oranges because of the large suburban and rural populations in the US. I would be willing to bet that if you compared only urban areas, the murder rate for the US would be much higher.

Every crime has motive & reward.

When there is a hard evidence inspired perception of getting away with murder and the same perception of of nothing to lose the motive is simple to define.

 

Tougher punishments? If your perception of reality is that life is shit - what penalty could stop you.

 

There is wisdom in accepting that "that's the way it is" in societies like the Philippines.

NO it can't. If you read what I said. The US has a greater portion of inhabitants in suburban and rural areas where the violent crime rate is much lower. So if you compare only urban areas, I believe the US rate would be higher. This would be a much more representative comparison. In other words, this would be apples to apples not the apples to oranges of your statistics which are skewed by location of the population.

What if you compared rural areas...then what do you think they comparison would be?
