    The violence in America is epidemic, out of control. The prisons need to be redesigned for 100% solitary confinement. Zero tolerance policy on any violent assaults. Put violent people away for very long times to life. Parents are ruining their children. Generations of human crops will need to be sacrificed to end the problem.

      @Philly-can’t argue with this comment as I agree with most of it. Life seems to mean nothing to people anymore. They are getting as bad as the Muslims.
