It’s true that around 13 per cent of Americans are black, according to the latest estimates from the US Census Bureau.
And yes, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, black offenders committed 52 per cent of homicides recorded in the data between 1980 and 2008. Only 45 per cent of the offenders were white. Homicide is a broader category than “murder” but let’s not split hairs.
27 bjs use FactCheck: do black Americans commit more crime?
Blacks were disproportionately likely to commit homicide and to be the victims. In 2008 the offending rate for blacks was seven times higher than for whites and the victimisation rate was six times higher.
I am not surprised that you would reject FactsCheck. You and all other shareholders denied the fact that Shultz put the sales of their stores in Chile and Mexico into Operating Earnings, even though they announced it in their 10Q under footnotes to their income statement and stated it was against GAAP accounting procedures.
DRWI is trading here for about what they paid for Nokia Siemens Networks' microwave transport business in 2012. That's absolutely ridiculous! Is it because people think they'll be delisted? Personally, I'd like to see them get off the Nasdaq - they'll still be listed in Toronto where they trade at 40% higher market cap! Most American investors are stupid as #$%$. I bought a bunch of DRWI stock over the past ten days or so. This is one of the hardest stocks I've ever bought - every time I put in a larger order it starts popping up. It's been excruciating painful having to buy in such small lots. I'll buy a ton more if they drop lower. I'll hold for at least $3, which is coming. I do believe that Ciena or Cisco will buy them out in the near future.
Yep, you're a jerk. The purchase price consisted of EUR10.6 million in cash, subject to customary post-closing adjustments, and 2,000,978 common shares of DragonWave(traded at $3.10 a share on closing). They also took over EUR of 10 million in employee liabilities and the Master Acquisition Agreement also includes a capital lease or similar deferred sale agreement from Nokia Siemens Networks to DragonWave of approximately EUR3.9 million of equipment. In addition they also agreed to earnouts of up to EUR $80 million. The hardware earnouts ran for 2 years, so they are now done. The software ran for 4 years so they still have 1 year left on these earnouts. Euro was trading at $1.24 on June 1, 2012, so they paid total US dollars of $33.23 million plus earnouts. BTW - the shares were restricted from sale for 2 years which ended May 31, 2014, so I answered my own question - that's why it got so cheap. The selling is now over.
Why would anyone in their right mind sell here when you know Ciena has incorporated Dragonwave into its products and will buy them out. If you think a couple pennies is a "pop", you better cover quick - you ain't seen nothing yet.
