Numbers say US has world’s highest murder rate, and nobody seems to care (full show)

Why is there so much gun violence in the United States? And how does this stack up with the rest of the world? Rick Sanchez takes a deep dive into this question. Investigative journalist Ben Swann analyzes why the media tends to ignores this crisis in violence and former police officer and prosecutor, Arthur Rizer, breaks down how the war on drugs drives this violence.

RT Correspondent John Huddy then reports on the latest news regarding Julian Assange and how he was stripped of his Ecuadorian citizenship.

RT Correspondent Faran Fronczak then reports on the Covid-19 pandemic and how this has fuelled a wave of fraud in the US. Then Rick is joined by two clinical psychologists, Dr. Vijayeta Sinh and Dr. Chloe Carmichael, about how Americans are coping with anger and frustration related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Finally, RT Correspondent Alex Mihailovich reports on how Russia's ban from the Olympics isn't preventing the country's winning streak.
