Human trafficking

Human trafficking is a global multibillion dollar business, only ranking behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking, according to the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime. It is believed to generate profits of an estimated $32 billion, according to a 2005 report from the International Labour Organization. Half of those profits come from industrialized nations.

Police in Europe arrested 103 people in 10 countries this week, all accused of smuggling in people on boats, freight trains and small hidden compartments in the floors of buses and trucks.

The massive operation spanned a host of European nations and deployed more than 1,200 police officers.

The operation descended on homes and properties across Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Slovak Republic, Turkey and Kosovo region in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Related operations took place in Switzerland and Austria.

Their search yielded 176,500 euros (about $240,000) in cash, plus a collection of mobile phones, laptops, bank statements and a semiautomatic rifle with a large amount of ammunition.

“All arrested persons are suspected of being involved in the clandestine smuggling of a large number of irregular migrants into and within the European Union mainly via Turkey and the Western Balkan region,” a Europol statement said. Europol is the European Union’s law enforcement agency,

Most of those being smuggled were recruited from Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Syria and Turkey by the criminal ring targeted in these raids.

School massacre in UK

The Dunblane school massacre occurred at Dunblane Primary School in the Scottish town of Dunblane on 13 March 1996. The gunman, 43-year-old Thomas Hamilton (b. 10 May 1952), entered the school armed with four handguns, shooting and killing sixteen children and one adult before committing suicide. Along with the 1987 Hungerford massacre and the 2010 Cumbria shootings, it remains one of the deadliest criminal acts involving firearms in the history of the United Kingdom.

Public debate subsequent to these events centred on gun control laws, including public petitions calling for a ban on private ownership of handguns and an official enquiry, the Cullen Report. In response to this debate, the Firearms (Amendment) Act 1997 and the Firearms (Amendment) (No. 2) Act 1997 were enacted, which effectively made private ownership of handguns illegal in the United Kingdom.

Guns in America

Guns in America! The internal fight between moneymakers, lawmakers and our conscience. Do we need them?
Just give your answer to your kids! For sure, opinions are going to vary. Almost 6.5 Billion people on earth results to 6.5 billion different minds and more or less 6.5 billion different voices. Almost 400 million people in USA are watching the news every day and they pray not to see another tragedy like Newtown, Connecticut, in which an armed gunman killed 26 innocent people at an Elementary School out of 20 were children almost 6 years old.

So just relax and think about it! At 2013, we cannot do anything else except to pray, to not listen that somebody, insane or not, took a machine gun or a handgun or any kind of gun and invade in a public place and kill …..innocent people!!! That’s great!! That’s really fantastic!!That is happening only in a real war! What is going on here? Are we fighting our own society? or those are the fundamentals of our society?

And now all the “higher class people” they are gathering together to talk about what? The permits and allowances of the guns!! And a few million people from NRA are “threatening” our great politicians that they won’t vote them if they disallowed the use of the machine guns? ARE WE SERIOUS? Yes ladies and gentlemen – we are serious.

In peace the sons bury their fathers, but in war the fathers bury their sons. Herodotus
