Uh...the one I quoted.

Ah, the hypothetical.  Well, erase the murder part and insert the other crimes. 

Does that make a material difference to my point?  Not really.

Do you consider every child that died of diphtheria, tuberculosis,  measles, etc. to have been murdered?

Would "victims of negligent homicide" work for you?

Quite possible but those diseases also killed a lot of children the late 19th and early 20th century, even adults.

The child mortality rate for children under 5 was over 25% during the early 1900's.
Statista


Regardless of the cause of death, the disturbing part is how their deaths were treated. It's like they never existed.

Sure. I was just wondering how I should feel about my grandma who had three kids die of diphtheria in the 1930s.

  I commented on the hateful spraypaint, which isn't helpful, and is different than being angry.
Oh no. Not hateful spray paint. Sure as hell beats hateful arson on fishing boats in NS, or abandonment outside city limits in the middle of a Winnipeg winters, or...you know....mass unmarked graves of children.

But yeah, hateful spray paint...not helpful. /s

And those diseases were especially prevalent in places with overcrowded living conditions, poor ventilation, poor hygeine and poor nutrition, making residential schools the perfect places for such diseases to thrive.

Oh were those kids forcibly removed by the government and shoved into overcrowded germ farms too?

I'm not telling anyone how to feel or act.
You've effectively said I can't feel or act like an Earthling because its a cop out or some such thing.

'We'...LOL! Like I'm the only Earthling or something.  Get the hell off my planet? If I only could.

I didn't tell you how to feel, I said maintaining it is someone else's problem is a cop out.

You don't get diphtheria from not being in an overcrowded germ farm.

Of course that's a cop out, how does identifying the institutions and people responsible for those institutions do that?

It's not but it was a Canadian government program so we all bear some responsibility. You just can't walk away from that.
