    So you prefer the type of tv where they make fake stories.
    Like Chicago is so violent. When they don't crack the top 50 in the country.

    To be honest, I don't watch TV. Ever since streaming started, the idea of watching whatever a tv station thinks I want to watch is downright comical. Nobody but old geezers watch that tv stuff anymore.

    This is going to sound racist and it’s not P.C., but it is the truth.

    The same way they got rid of the violence on the north side and most of the west side. Gentrify (which is a good thing) all blacks out of the Southside.

    If there were no blacks in Chicago. We would have crime rates similar to Europe’s best cities

    Did you think I was trying to debate you? lol!!!!

    I know you're just trolling, so I decided to troll you back. You're actually trying to pretend that all of the violence happening in Chicago isn't a problem because it's a bigger problem in other cities. That's trolling dude. If we wanted to discuss what to do about an obesity epidemic in mississippi, you'd pop up and start talking about how it's not a problem because there are fatter kids somewhere else in the world.

    Trolling and trying to derail conversations with irrelevancies is just... well, it's why we love you.

    More guns and large magazines. Also, make it easier to get semi automatic assault style weapons for anyone that wants them. That should do it. The old character Archie Bunker had a plan to stop plane hijackings that were going on back in the early '70s. Just let everybody have a gun and nobody will dare to hijack. Sounded silly, but it really made sense to me.

    They've got Rahm Emmanuel as mayor who ran over to Israel and served in the IDF during the first gulf war. The J-mafia doesn't care about the black community, they only use them as useful idiots against white people and cops to promote America's destruction. I mean look at what Netanyahu said about America: "
    “Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away”

    So yes, you made it up.
    And now you admit you're a troll.

    Maybe if you were to try an honest conversation by admitting that there is a problem with violence in Chicago, instead of calling trump supporters too stupid to realize that Chicago doesn't even make the top 50 when it comes to violent cities in America.

    Sure, that aspect doesn't really get much attention. Maybe your CNNs and MSNBCs use this to buttress their idea that there's nothing to see here, so move along, but I'm guessing it doesn't when it comes to right wing media like fox.

    As for making stuff up, I really don't watch TV at all. That is the truth. It's also the truth that I really didn't know that chicago doesn't even crack the top 50, but I checked, and you're right. Just try to realize that to Trump supporters, it's true what I said about not really living in those places, which is why they're run by democrats. Many supporters of the President really are quite naive when it comes how bad things really are in cities.

    Is that something to make fun of? I think it's something that democrats should be embarrassed about.

    The cheap pot for mass consumption comes north from south of the border. Better grades are grown in the USA illegally. The very best stuff is now grown legally, in the USA.

    Curious thing is that there is now a southbound smuggling flow of very high quality American weed going into Mexico. A by product of the legal pot business.

    Yeah, here it's all cloned variations of genetically modified species that I can't even touch without getting a contact buzz.

    The only good news is that beer is still cheap, and it doesn't make me quite as stupid as weed does.

    Maybe you shouldn't have gone and proved my point about tRUMPers. Is there ever an honest conversation in theses forums?
    And my very 1st post was an attempt at an honest conversation, it basically just pointing out facts.
    And my 2nd post was in response to a poster who never has an honest conversation and that is the one you decided to reply to.

    It is run by D's, yes, which is why tRUMPers will only bring up Chicago. They aren't really interested in violence in cities. Only that Chicago has violence in a city run by D's.
    That was the point I was making.

    We don't do anything about it. Obama, the inveterate race-agitating president, did absolutely nothing about it for eight years and he was a Dem President and as for Chicago it (and one presumes the state's legislature as well) is a Dem Party dominated region, and those in control of the beleaguered city have done absolutely nothing about Black on Black murders and the Dem Party dominated Mainstream Media have issued no calls to 'Do' anything about Blacks murdering Blacks in the city; and since the Dem Party and its leadership OWN that city and do not think that Black on Black murder is an important issue for all of their support of the Black Lives Matter movement, it therefore must not be . . . important.

    Now why BLM doesn't think that Blacks murdering Blacks in Chicago is any sort of a big deal and yet they have the audacity to call themselves Black Lives Matter simply indicates that BLM is just another meaningless leftist political con, and that when you get right down to it Black Lives DO NOT matter to the people running -- or who are members of -- BLM.

    Gun registration to starve the black market. Legalize marijuana to starve off the drug market.

    ETA: Beyond that, a lot of state money to repair neighborhoods and a "surge" of enforcement.

    Cause, the part that you omitted from the post youre responding to, is the fact that the government places kids in abusive homes many times.

    On the way into the office this morning, NPR went to lengths to equivocate that even though Chicago produces the most murders in the nation, that it wasn't that big of a deal because per capita, it wasn't the worst. Further, they pointed out that efforts by the mayor, Emmanuel, has been criticized (which by extension is what NPR themselves were doing) for asking that the communities there take some personal responsibility and accountability for the crime those communities produce.

    And in good progressive double speak, it isn't really the folks who choose crime as a vocation who are at fault... No, that's where the rest of us come into play. Because we are actually being blamed for their criminal choices. The rest of us who haven't given enough of ourselves, our money, or our thought who enable these criminal choices in these communities.

    And liberals wonder why they are losing elections.

    I think it was earlier in this thread I stated that the "per capita" conversation is BS. They want to compare Chicago of 2.7 million people with places that have 73-50,000 people and say
    "see, per 100,000 people, Chicago only kills 79 per 100,000 (400 people) a year. While BFE Gerogia has a murder rate of 250 per 100,000 (2 people out of 500 residence). BFE GA is much worse than Chicago."

    If we could just segregate south and west Chicago alone and see what that rate goes up to, I am sure it will be ignored still.

    And once the military leaves? Shooters get arrested but no one wants to snitch so the shooters are released. Nothing will improve in Chicago until the people decide they've had enough. What they need is a good vigilante to get the ball rolling.
