JoeCapitalist2.Husker2 - Aspen, CO.The pain and grief of the
death of a loved one, is probably only exceeded by your own death. I think that
much of that pain comes from the “blame game” where we punish
ourselves with the word “if only I had
popular tactics of the hucksters is the deflection of the pain by the
redirection of the anger from oneself to some other bad guy. They might do this
for political or business reasons. A drunk driver often is a killer, but the
only probably important factor is his state of drunkenness and not have any
thing to do with his nationality, gender, financial status or other false
causes. We should attack the causes of improper drunkenness rather than hide
the real culprit like blaming other things. We should concentrate
on fighting all crimes by all people.
The comment from AMG is correct. There were only 64 actual homicides in Utah in
2017. You will have to read the Tribune to get the figure right.
I appreciate the Deseret News putting this list together. These are moms, dads,
brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents, sons, daughers, friends....whose
life was cut short. RIP and may God continue to bless the impacted families and
help them heal. It was sad to review this list to see the notable increase in
murder/suicides and how many involved drugs and gangs. I do agree
with AMG that the title is misleading and should be updated to reflect such.
These are not all homicides.
@Ultra Bob "Bill O'reilly, Trump and more say that the one killing by
an illegal alien is more important than all the rest. Go figure."Many years ago, my coworker was almost killed by a drunk driver who is an
illegal alien. My coworker suffered injuries that effected him for the rest of
is life and basically ruined his career. Imagine his dismay when he found that
the illegal alien had been deported multiple times but was welcomed back with
open arms by "sanctuary cities". They harbored a known criminal and
enabled him to commit more crimes. I cannot begin to fathom the
sorrow suffered by families who lose a loved one to an illegal alien because the
crime would have been prevented if the alien was not in the U.S.
I believe you guys have the definition of a homicide wrong. The correct
definition of homicide is the deliberate and unlawful killing of one person by
another; murder. Some of these people you have listed in this article did not
die because of an unlawful killing (Murder). Some of these people died because a
cop has shot them and it was justified. Also some of these people were killed by
accident..... just because they died by a gun does not make it murder.... you
guys should realize that you are doing false reporting and correct this
article. Once again why a lot of people do not trust the media.
Ultra Bob: "Bill O'reilly, Trump and more say that the one killing by
an illegal alien is more important than all the rest. Go figure."Whenever someone tries to expose the leftist talking points that illegal
aliens are all law-abiding, tax-paying, contributors to our society; they get
attacked. Point out that there are thousands of serious crimes committed by them
every day, and you will draw out the ire of the left.Many people who
sneak across our borders are just decent people who want a better life. But
enough of them come here to sell drugs, commit violent crimes, and join gangs;
that serious border enforcement is not just a form of discrimination by
'bigots'. It is common sense.The open border crowd is
lying to you. Anyone who tries to expose those lies will be attacked.
Bill O'reilly, Trump and more say that the one killing by an illegal alien
is more important than all the rest. Go figure.
There are only four states where you are less likely to be the victim of
homicide than in Utah, and they beat Utah by only a tiny margin. For
comparison, a person would be about 11 times more likely to be a victim of
homicide in Chicago than in Utah, and 13 times more likely in D.C.
