    I went to Chicago and all I got to show for it where cold, limp phrench phries.

    You're wrong. There are a lot of communities on the South side that are affluent. The West side, NOW THAT'S a sewer.

    Speak slow and clearly.....keep your hands in front of you. Don't smile and don't look any of them in the face. Just keep on walking until you get out of there. Don't run.....walk.
    Until they want to play knock out. Then while you lay there unconscious rob you of everything you have on you.

    I know, I was being sarcastic. Everything is banned in Chicago, doesn't seem to stop anything.

    If anything, they should close down FOPA, give the citizens the ability to defend themselves with equal firepower. Self solving problem IMO. I'm not advocating vigilantism, but....I'm certainly not opposed to the community taking back what is theirs from the dredges of society.

    The people most effected by anti-self defense legislation and the discouragement of self help isn't the suburban soccer mom, it's the inner city blue collar minority family that gets their apartment broken into once a month. The single mom going to school living in south side that is a victim of violence. It's open season on the law abiding citizen out there, and the criminal is the undisputed apex predator. Mandatory sentencing is a pretty start, but who pays for the 55K a year it costs to keep these guys in jail? It's a hell of a lot cheaper to hand out some hardware and give an open letter to criminals reading the words "Good luck, you're going to need it". I like that approach. If the criminals thought for a second that every other person they attempt to target may or may not put two in their chest...exponential crime rate drop.

    Or, we could create thunderdome, offer a grand prize, have criminal record prerequisites....televise it? I'm a capitalist, and opportunist, and I understand how depraved people are. Might as well cater to all three whilst saving the tax payer a fortune. Make the prize substantial. I'm sure they'll come out the woodwork.

    Yeah... Chicago wasn't a dump 80 years ago when they had Al Capone running the show or when the North Side Gang was there or when the christian conservative led prohibition era turned it into a gold mine for criminals. It only turned into one 40 years ago. Hey, don't be a partisan hack or anything. We wouldn't want you to become honest about metropolitan cities and blame something other than liberals for their decline.

    IMO the most important difference between the gangs then and now is that the gangs then were killing each other. It was extremely rare when an innocent bystander was killed. A child getting mowed down in crossfire was unheard of.

    I got off on the wrong off ramp on the 110 in South L.A. and the cops made a felony stop. After jacking me up for DWW, I was told I had no business being in the hood.

    I thanked the LAPD for probably saving me from being car-jacked, robbed and cold cocked.
