    Uh, were you looking for Chicago?

    No, I was looking for Rep. Maxine Waters. I heard she was still standing on the corner of Western and Florence Ave. trying to catch a CIA operative selling crack to blacks. I was curious if it she was still out there.

    Last time I was cold cocked was when I was living in Wisconsin.

    That was sure the last time I was ever caught out without my thermals.

    From the sounds coming outa the chicken coop I think there's some cold-cocking going on right now.

    I honestly doubt that is true. I think the fact that the media didn't even really report on innocent bystanders up until 20-30 years ago is what sets a different tone to the situation. The media didn't really care about reporting innocent bystanders until the 80s crack epidemic. Not because they needed it, but because it was unavoidable.

    Going back to Chicago: Chicago has always been a hellhole. It was a city founded in the spirit of religious colonialism, on ground infested with mosquitoes, and made wealthy by Italian gangsters. As far as I'm concerned, it was a hellhole from day 1.

    It is true. A majority of the gangland hits were one way rides. I'll go so far as to say that Organized crime then had a different work ethic than the street thugs today.

    That would have been a disappointing if exciting evening.

    What does everyone make of this? Having visited the city on a number of occasions i'm sad because it really is a great city to visit. Given the high number of murders, shootings etc is the warning warranted or is it an overrecation? Interested to hear from everyone but especially from posters who live or grew up in the Chicago.
    It shouldn't be seen as an insult, so much as the French government taking care of its citizens. If you are an American, and are signed up for the State Department Safe Travel Experience Program (STEP), you will receive the same warnings about cities, countries and locales around the world on an almost weekly basis or more while you are abroad.

    Yes. It is not something I would worry about. Just doing the job.
