    Naah. That can't be right. Look at their gun laws. It has to be a safe place! :uhoh:

    But the Chicago laws are not enough!! "Hurryin' Hoosier", Chicago has no problem placing the blame for their high number of murders on Indiana and the rest of their own state for not being on board with their way of thinking on gun-control.

    Strip out certain "Males between 15-44" and Chicago is as safe as anywhere in the country. Joe

    Just to be fair to Big Al......don't you think you should put up photos of previous Mayors and Governors of Illinois?

    Al Capone was Saint Alphonse compared to some that hold public office.

    Also caught Jesse Jackson on one of the talking head shows this morning. The discussion was on crime in Chacago. Jackson is a few bricks short of a load. He made no sense with his comments......chris3

    Well this is clearly the fault of reactionary elements in states like Georgia, Tennessee, the Carolinas, and Texas clinging to guns and religion. If these bitter anti-progress elements would follow our dear leader, the clouds would part, global warming would cease, the world would sing in harmony as mankind took a step forward into a more perfect order. </sarcasm>

    Sad to see free men live under such oppression but remember Ben Franklin the people of Chicago gave the city that power under the guise of peace and safety and got neither.

    Now they are reducing 911 response to "non-violent crimes" as reported by the WSJ today.

    Instead of sending an officer, they will fill out a police report over the phone. :banghead:

    Yep! That's how Rahm and SuperNintendo McCarthy rolls. Also, Rahm is mandating 200 cops who normally had desk duties to hit the streets. That really pissed off a lot of people.

    If you guys really want some good insight on what happens in our CPD, subscribe at Second City Cop. Although I'm not in Chicago proper, my entire family are CPD lifers and I like to keep tabs.

    The actual numbers? Hah, good luck with that. The CompStats that go on here never reveal the true numbers.

    Doesn't this trend pre-date Rham and McCarthy by quite a few years? I remember the same situation in Chicago in the late 80s.

    I'll definitely check the SCPD site.

    It has, but not to the degree that it is now. It wasn't until Daley in '89, or Shortshanks as he's referred to around here, when things really got messed up.

    That makes sense. I think I was first there in '90 and heard it had gotten bad then. I've been back a dozen or so times since and I love the city, even stayed in a hotel on the South Side. Of course, we brought every splinter and stitch of our belongings into the hotel room that night.

    I wish nothing but the best for everyone in that city. The people there have that upper-midwest kindness that makes traveling through easier. Too bad crime can ruin all that.

    I wouldn't say everyone has that mentality; in fact, Chicago's been voted as one of the rudest cities in the country. But then again, it's a diverse area and depends on where you are. I'm way out west, and it's a somewhat different culture out here. Heck, all of my reps are Republicans.

    Yes, just like liquor bans (Prohibition) and drug bans (the War on Drugs) worked so well at eliminating consumption.

    We all know how silly the ban is in Chicago, but what do the politicians there say? They MUST be asked somewhere "why is there so much crime with a total gun ban?" I've heard the answers about Indiana and its lax laws but is that it? Have they any other responses?
