  2. Am I reading it right, it took over 2 hours for the ambulance to get there? OTOH depending on where which organs were stabbed he might have bled out in 2 minutes. If he was beheaded all bets are off.

    Don’t you love how people in a traditionally mostly single race country lectures a traditionally multi-racial country about racism, especially since minorities in that traditionally single race country also riot about how they are victims of racism. Just read the back story of the song “Electric Avenue.”
