    the punchline is "black people."

    So Luuv hooked me up with a custom rank.

    Which means I only have two more prizes to claim, plus an image sig.

    So that's where we stand.

    Yeah, it is a blood bath out there on the streets.
    I mean, 3 a day in August, that's unreal. The sad part, the chief says he knows who is doing it, and it still happens.

    That's crazy, and kind of scary, I used to walk wards for Democrats near Sacremento and Madison....
    Free fire zone there now.

    This was ten years ago, when it was much safer. Not safe mind you, just safer....

    That's around the same time frame that a cop told us not to walk up Wood from the UC to Chicago Av - he made us go over to Damen (lived at Damen near Chicago Av).

    Two days after moving in I decided to check out the greasy spoon across from McD's...a guy walks in with a knife stuck through his hand. Decided I wasn't hungry anymore.

    UC is in a rough part of town, always has been.

    Horrible. Just horrible.

    I was in Chicago for a few days in late July. This tourism official guy named Mr
    Abraham told me he used to be Obama's lunch buddy as their offices were close to each other

    Anyway -- he drew me circles on the map showing the specific west and south side areas to avoid.

    Apparently it's concentrated in only a tiny amt. of areas of the city.

    I think what we're seeing is like what happened in Juarez when the cartels were fighting for turf.....they had a huge crime wave that peaked in 06 because the thugs literally killed all the rival gangs and factions off.

    I think Chiraq is an example of a Darwinian tragic struggle that will sort itself out when they kill each other off in a few yrs....then the cops will mop up what's left of the bangers and gentrify the city for good.

    Ah, Chicago crime.....The invariable "Trump" card that is designed to automatically excuse disproportion across the board.

    What's going on out there. I heard Chicago has more murders than LA and NYC combined.

    Oh bother...

    The one time I went to Chicago, I was surprised to see how much cleaner its downtown area is compared to New York's.
