    I have to wonder....before he was shot to death, did the victim realize that Australia banned and confiscated guns?


    Third person charged with Father's Day murder

    Clinton Pollock, 35, was shot in the chest after getting into an argument with a group of men in the front yard of his Deception Bay home about 11.30pm on September 2.

    He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

    Police allege the man drove a vehicle from the Thompson Street house after Mr Pollock was shot.

    Only 3? That wouldn't make the news in the U.S., but it's so unusual in Australia the news reaches the other side of the planet.

    You almost sound like you'd rather live in some shithole where there's a higher population of non-whites and whites.

    And yet if you did, chances are pretty good that you wouldn't survive the murders, rapes, robberies and other shit that comes with a higher non-white population.

    The part of the state I live in is about 50% white and has 3 of the 5 wealthiest counties in America. A good start.
