However Chicago has always been sensationalized in the media. That started in the 1890's. Then in the 1930's the early Warner Brothers gangster pictures with Edward G and Cagney all took place here. Those movies put Chicago on the map. But in the grand scheme of things, crime here was no different than other cities like Boston, Cincinnati or Dallas.


    You just proved my point.

    Look at the STATES....heck...look at Illinois. PARTS of Chicago are a ****hole and drive the crime rates up for the state, while most of the state is pretty much safe. Look at EVERY state...and in every state (Alaska is a bit of an exception) you will find population centers...typically poverty stricken minority communities...that impact the figures for the STATES.

    My point is that crime is higher in cities than in rural areas. More people = more crime. **** man, even WASP Branson Missouri has seen a tremendous spike in murders and violent crime. And the murder rate in Chicago has dropped over the last couple of years. I've two friends lat live in middle of nowhere Fairmount Indiana. The other night, someone kicked in their back door, stole cash and other property then took off in their truck. Probably someone on Meth, which is the new booming economy in poor middle of nowhere areas that lack resources and infrastructure. Mayberry does not exist.

    I dont think you and I disagree. The number one indicator of problems invariably is poverty. Poverty levels dictate severity...but no place is immune.

    So you assume without research? Good to know.

    And for the record, those dead bodies aren't just thugs. Many were kids, grandparents, fathers and mothers who were simply at the wrong place at the wrong time. So go ahead and tell their family members "Who cares".
