What? You hoping she's going to get better?

She's dead. The killer has been arrested. It's old news. The thread degenerated into a pointless slanging match about political correctness before the end of the first page.

If you want to know more, go and read a newspaper.

DB, I am completely ready to reconsider and make a case for the opposite of what I said! What kind of nonsense was I arguing about again?

Re: Waitress shot dead

Oh come ON - you children play nicely now. This is a tragedy we are talking - some poor girl is dead from some mindless drunk with a gun and you're playing verbal fisticuffs about political correctness and calling each other losers.

Wow.

I can't even be bothered to read this thread anymore.

Uhm....excuse me I am American with Swiss as a second citizenship. I have never "begged for relief aid"...and you may feel that western society is "superior" but obviously you are not one of the "superior ones"..LOL..You seem like you give no relief to anyone and that includes your bad odor...You're starting to stink!
Ok, so go live in all those great thirdworld countries like Pakistan, Burundi or Laos. The West is richer, healthier and more advanced... I'd say that's superior.

Inferiority complex?

The gentleman to whom you refer is a subject of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

That makes him infinitely superior to some jumped up foreigner from some distant upstart republic.

Really.... you ought to know your place in the world.

Re: Waitress shot dead

Now you see some of the replys by Dougs Breakfast, Canadian Dude and a couple of others. Hiding behind the curtain of Swiss xenophobia and racism (eventhough there is no such thing as race just using term for common purposes) being in Switzerland can bring out the worse in you because those who are discriminiated against have no recourse it just empowers those who are ignorant and have low self esteem concerning other cultures. They feel that it is o.k. to "cut off the heads of others to make themselves taller"...They believe whether consciously or sub-consciously that their culture (you can substitute race) is superior. Where in reality everybody dies, everyones blood is red and if an Asian, Black or White person wants to jump off a bridge the universe will not suspend the "law of gravity" to save you...To sum it up "your massah is your stupidity"....


"You're not from 'round 'ere, are you?"




Still, hope springeth eternal.

I have never felt the slightest discrimination against me in the US.

I love Switzerland but as a whole it is not an immigrant's paradise.

Many things are wrong in the US but there is a genuine sensitivity to not stir up xenophobia.
Let me guess - You're white? What whitebread community did you move from?
I lived in California most of my life and there's discrimination everywhere, from race to religion to sexual discrimination. Why do you think Obama was such a big deal?

I'm not saying you see it daily, but I think you're painting a wrong picture of politically correct California. Go back if it's so much better.

I have to agree there's lots of racist problems here too, it's been covered in several threads. I have even seen job ads requesting only a (Swiss) national, but as they point out, this is done practically everywhere, even when not printed.

Back to the original subject, it's terrible that anyone can simply shoot someone else over some petty thing.

But honestly, I think if I were telling the story as a witness, I would also mention the nationalities and color as I would that one was a waitress or a tourist, etc. If you don't mention it, you can assume it was a local or national, but then the tourists get scared...

I am Swiss from a Jewish background. My father was a holocaust refugee.

I do live in California. I have for the last 17 years.

Why are you so aggressive?
