At least Australia counts them? It would seem the US police and government don't wish to know how many people they kill, although there are other organisations now attempting to compile those figures.

Somebody is in the US : http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/1...n_5959776.html
I researched this a little and the number fact about it is that MOST are not even reported.

They are definitely issues, but I'd say that amongst the membership of Reclaim Australia there are people with genuine concerns.

This could make me live in Australia. I could forget all the deadly animals for Margot Robbie I think.

12 weeks 31 women.

When will we treat this like a national emergency?
Is that a lot, in a nation of 23 million?

Australia's homicide rate is very, very low -- and falling steadily. Aussies aren't immune to stupidity, get drunk, get violent, do some bloody business: but they do it much less often than other folks.

That was one of the things that surprised me about Australia-- for a place that prides itself on a rough image, people are more consistently civilized and decent to their fellow mate & sheila than they imagine.

I looked up some stats, and it turns out that, curiously, Australians express more fear of crime than Americans-- but actually have much violent crime than we do. The one exception is rape, where Oz has slightly more than the US (all number as rate per 100,000)

See a comparison of the data here:

Okay I know some of you like your roos but I think this is a little overboard.

No, it isn't. Australia has a low murder rate, 1:100.000 per year

Not to be cynical, but statistically nearly every nation on earth dreams of "social failures" like that -- even Norway and Finland

Speaking of bushfires... okay so not usually at this time of year in Oz but I hear Siberia has had a few bad ones.

We might need to send some water bombers to palo5, though our helicopters-with-water-tubs might not be as big as a modified Ilyushin (IL-76TD?)
