    Boy, I feel sorry for that guy. So, does he get resurrected each week only to be killed again the next week? If I were him, I`d go work somewhere else.

    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), of the 4,547 fatal workplace injuries that occurred in the United States in 2010, 506 were workplace homicides.

    @Randy - so, that averages almost TEN workplace homicides per week! The Canadian textbook dramatically underestimates the rate of workplace homicides in the USA

    @Randy`s stats suggest it`s 10 per week! Not one...

    Still happens in Canada though, it happens everywhere!

    From 1992 to 2010, there were 13,827 reported workplace homicide victims, averaging over 700 victims per year, in the United States
    Examination of the 2011 data shows that while a majority of workplace fatalities occurred to males, workplace violence disproportionately affects females. Homicides contributed to 21% of all occupational fatalities for women, compared to 9% for men. Of these homicides, relatives or domestic partners contributed to 39% of female homicide cases; male homicide cases were most likely to be perpetrated by robbers, contributing to 36% of male homicide cases

    according to wikipedia

    Examination of the 2011 data shows that while a majority of workplace fatalities occurred to males, workplace violence disproportionately affects females.

    Perfect feminism - even when they admit most victims are men, they rush to grasp any straw to claim that women are much more victims. Only women matter.

    Their own stats show this:

    Men are more likely than women to be victims of homicide at work and men are *far* more likely than women to be victims of homicide outside of work (which is why the %age of the total male victims who were at work at the time is lower)

    But drat them. They`re not women, so they`re not important. It`s not like men are real people, is it?
