    Katowice student incident..

    one week ago an international medical student studying in Poland was stabbed to death from Katowice medical school in Poland, I am disappointed that something like this can occur.

    Yeah....the US is the safest place

    While Poland is far from the safest place on earth, I think your statements are exagerations of isolated events that have not only been kown to occur throughout Poland, but all of Europe. People in general are usually oversensitized to events and other stimuli while abroad. During my years in Poznan, none of my Indian or Asian classmates had issues regarding safety. I have heard stories of African students on occasion being harassed but have never seen anything first hand. Many African students by the way mary Polish women and stay there the rest of their lives without incident. If you think the USA is safer, you are highly mistaken. Medical Students here have been murdered, raped, beaten and so forth. In NYC there are over 1,000 anti-semitic incidences per year. Blacks have been dragged by pick-up trucks, homosexuals strung up on barbwire and left to die. Arabs, Indians and other dark skinned people have been victimized because of whats happening in Iraq. Please put a lid on your your Polish crime rhetoric, i can't watch TV here anymore because of the crap that's happening on a daily basis.

    Why?

    Why would HMI be held accountable? The person who stabbed him is accountable, and only he/she knows the reason for the stabbing. There is a lot you don't know. Maybe the student who was stabbed was sleeping with the stabbers wife, or got his daughter pregnant and wouldn't admit it. Maybe the victim was involved in the drug trade. Maybe the Russian mafia had him killed. My point is, you can't speculate on the saftey of anything unless you know the whole story.

    I live in Baltimore. From time to time some of the people from out professional schools are murdered. Most are completely innocent. Nobody blames the school, and nobody uses it as a negative campaign against the school. As long as there are people on the earth, they will kill each other. It is tragic, but not anything to make a big issue about. G

    i know how it is here

    katowice doesnt have the safest clubs in the world. same with krakow. its true that there is racial tension here. but its no different then in the states. im saddened that a medical student was murdered, for that matter, anyone being murdered is sad.

    however, dont go where there maybe possible trouble. dont walk down a dark alley etc. we live in a very nasty world. i just want to point out 1 thing... if the victim were a polish medical student, how would you react?

    on another note, a few weeks ago, a norweigan medical student passed away from CO posioning. every1 freaked out and started blaming how "uncivilized" poland is. poland is pretty civilized. its just the way you look at it. one girl died here of CO posioning while everyyear, hundreds of people die in chicago of CO posioning. people get antsy when someone from their social group is victimized.

    hi..

    "however, dont go where there maybe possible trouble. dont walk down a dark alley etc. we live in a very nasty world. i just want to point out 1 thing... if the victim were a polish medical student, how would you react?"


    you are right. Nevertheless, it would be useful if future applicants are warned about going to places like that there. Nobody should be held accountable, it is just a sad incident.

    useless threads

    This is a ludicrous thread but, as I believe it to be indicative of the mass ignorance that seems to be spreading throughout the world (despite a new US policy of foreign isolationism ironically), I took two minutes to verify what my hunch told me. The annual murder rate in Poland is nearly half of what it is in the US. This means that, as a whole, the statement on the website is not inaccurate. You are more likely to be murdered in the US than Poland. Has anyone actually stepped outside of the campus at UPenn? You couldn't pay me to be out there after dark. Wait! What's that you say? One of the best school's in the US? Couldn't possibly be! It's in such a dangerous area! It must be due to the influence of all those unnatural immigrants tainting our land and bloodlines...
    Please keep the forums clear for people with real issues. Believe it or not (and contrary to the opinion of some in the White House), there are signs of intelligence and civilization outside the US borders.

    what??

    I am just ensuing that events like this should be avoided in the future, and future applicants should be warned about things like this at places like this (nightclubs).

    jeez

    This is part of the problem with america. Physiologically, the "knee jerk reaction" doesn't go above the level of the spinal cord. The brain is not at all involved. G

    racism thread

    Hmmm...it seems as though sarcasm may have died a horrible grisly death somewhere along the way (as evidenced by my message being taken literally). Let me clarify using small words. It struck me that the entire basis for this thread was sadly racist and grounded firmly in ignorance. Phrases like, "I wonder what else is going on there" are indicative of the twisted tautological arguments we're being subjected to on a daily basis by the American media. It was a mugging. That's all. I feel for the kid, and I think it's rough, but it has nothing to do with med school, or where he was attending. I'm sorry if that weakens your argument/witch hunt against a particular country, but it's true.
