People don't kill people, knives do...

"A Belgian woman went on trial on Monday for killing her five children, facing a possible life sentence for slitting their throats.

The trial, expected to last about two weeks, will focus on what drove Genevieve Lhermitte to cut the throats of her four girls and boy at the family home in Nivelles, about 30 kilometres (19 miles) south of Brussels."

It's a very interesting situation, considering they had a doctor living with them for the past 17 years.

Do you think they should ban knives?

12-08-2008, 05:59 PM
Should they ban water?

Very good Hans, you're getting there...

12-08-2008, 06:01 PM
I believe it was somewhere in the States where a woman drowned her five children, no?

12-08-2008, 06:02 PM
Yes, Hans.

And it was somewhere in Canada that a guy chopped up fellow travelers on a Greyhound bus and ate them. So should we ban buses?

What's the political point you are trying to make?

If you chop somebody up with a bus, we'd better ban them.

Point Hans?? What point?? Ever??

You guys are of the mindset guns kill people when a murder happens in the U.S., but when it comes to murder in Canada all of the sudden people kill people.

Yet you'll notice that Canada doesn't need an NRA.

12-08-2008, 06:11 PM
The NRA is about keeping rights.

Why on earth would a country that has given in to government years ago need something that protects rights?

What 'rights'??

I thought the article you posted was about a murder in Belgium?

12-08-2008, 06:13 PM
Like I said...

12-08-2008, 06:14 PM
Care to clarify what you said? Because you lost me with this one.

Belgium has political barriers up to stop immigration.

If it's the U.S. doing so concerning illegal Mexican immigration, it's a major crisis and hellfire damnation...if it's Belgium using politics to stop legal immigration, it's ignored.

Hypocrisy, that's my point.

I thought that was the other thread? This is the thread about the murder of five children in Belgium, no?

12-08-2008, 06:18 PM

Well, you get my point

12-08-2008, 06:19 PM
Not really, but ok I guess.
