This relates to their telecommunications network. Any editorial control they have over non-telecom services is irrelevant. For telecom, they most certainly do have common carrier status. Verifying that fact is really very easy.
One major problem is that people compare the UK murder rate to the US homicide rate, which further skews the real picture.
I'd like to see something backing up the contention that the UK clears 95% of murder cases. If so, they have the best investigative police on Earth.
As for the fact that they report murders for the year they're charged rather than the year they're committed, that simply means a given year's rate is more representative of crime in previous years rather than that of the current year on average. It doesn't mean crime rates are actually lower than reported. It just means an accurate reflection of a given year won't occur until a later date.
I can only assume you are completely out of touch with reality if you truly believe that.
I was replying to Belial6. If I'm understanding you correctly, you believe it's alright for schools to punish someone defending themselves with exactly the same repercussions as the person instigating violence against them? If so, we fundamentally disagree. I do not condone the enforcement of "lie down and take whatever someone else wants to give you." There are times when it is simply not possible to extract yourself from a situation where someone else is intent on inflicting physical harm. Believing otherwise is simply sticking your head in the sand.
It's amazing to see how many people absolutely fail at logic on this site. Kids apparently have to be able to use tech at 5 years old or they'll be damaged for life!
Kids apparently can't learn anything useful unless it involves technology, and the parents are horrible people for undertaking a short-term experiment while their children are pre-adolescent. The horror!
Yes, because cutting them off until April of next year will forever cripple them. Logic fail ftw!
Only if you didn't read it and don't possess decent reasoning skills.
A year at their age won't impede their ability to learn how to use 21st century devices in the slightest. They won't suffer a damn thing, and it certainly won't deny them access to a certain career path. The above is complete hyperbole and is completely out of touch with reality.
Choosing not to use technology yourself isn't a ban, it's a choice. A ban is something imposed by an external authority. For the children, it is a ban, but parents have a reasonable right to ban things they find injurious to their child's development. There's plenty of time to learn to use an iPad, but once a child exits their toddler stage many habits are set for life. This allows for them to get used to being able to do without tech, and once they are older and have started to develop the ability to exercise self-control they can be exposed to things that are addictive at an early age.
They're not teaching them anything about tech. What they're doing is teaching them about things that aren't tech. Not starting to learn how to use advanced devices until you're 6 isn't going to do jack shit to harm these children in any way at all.
Dark matter is the Divine Sauce which creates most of the mass of the Great Pastafarian Feast known as the universe.
When this happens, there's something wrong with police culture.
The problem is in what is viewed as a threat by police. That has gotten a lot more broad, and since SWAT teams now are used regularly to serve warrants for non-violent offenses, a lot more civilians are getting shot.
