An 8 year old shot and killed in Atlanta while in a car with her mother when parking in an area that has had protests after another police officer killed an african american man and now faces charges. I feel for the mother and family. I am sure she regrets going anywhere near where there had been violent protests especially with her child.
These protests and related violence in the US is causing more people to puchase guns to protect themselves and their families. Would one have helped in this case? My guess it not likely and many stats say more guns leads to more gun related deaths.
I feel for our neighbors to the south that are struggling with so many things right now and hope they can find a way through this before many more innocent people die.
Can the international community do anything more than condemn this?
They can start by reducing their dependency on imports from and exports to China. Build new and better trading relationships with countries that follow and support international law and norms. Support and encourage local and trusted trading partner producers for goods that can currently only be sourced from China or other untrustworthy countries.
Consumers can help by looking for alternatives when a product they considering is made in China.
I hope this reminds those in Canada and similar countries of how much better things are for freedoms and they work to improve things rather than just complain.

This is great advice for teens and older. Other than being critical, which is not a negative trait when used to look at how we can do things better.
How one behaves when listening and speaking to others is equally important. Being present when listening to others instead of listening to ones inner thoughts. Speaking with positive language, having integrity and leading by example can help achieve more success and attract like minded friends.

Thepolice did not notify the public or media andgovernment claims they were not notified but still delayed once they were,
This has happened to other MP’s with other governments and the question is why is this still allowed. We can blame any government in power but they often follow the same pattern of previous governments, the bureaucracy and even the police are not disclosing it.
