It ain't THAT....... bad is it?
What's up with all the Chicago bashing in the news lately?
Chicago isn't the only place people are getting shot and killed; try L.A., Atlanta, and Philly.
Also, I've been to Chicago on many occasions and I've seen so many Mexican and Puerto Rican gangs there who fight eachother on a regular basis. Am I to believe they never get hurt or killed?
Something very strange is going on.
Just like when Bush was in office "Texas" magically became the symbol of conservatism....
It seems that not that Obama is in office "Chicago" is being held as the symbol of liberalsim.....

I was in a club in Chicago and a shoot out erupted -- clearing the entire club.
I think they should bring up cities like Chicago more often, See when 20 rich white kids (all due respect to effective families and friends) are shot and killed the nation is outraged and prepared to do something. However when carnage is much greater in place like Chicago you don't here a peep -- not even from Obama.
I'm glad Mrs. Obama went to Chicago (I may be wrong about the city) to pay her respects to the parents yet another young Black person killed through gun violence.

Chicago is 2 cities. The trendy midwestern metropolis full of skyscrapers and luxury hotels and expensive condos, upscale entertainment venus, lake front tourist attractions, Michigan avenue high fashion shops, famous museums and reputable universities and colleges.
Then there's the inner city, full of black and hispanic gangs, unsafe streets, bad schools, and a rampant "baby mama", drug-infested, welfare lifestyle. Everybody bemoans this ghetto culture but there doesn't seem to be anything that works. More cops don't help, and highly-paid school superintendants are ineffective.
Professionals attribute this turmoil to a disregard for human life triggered by a lack of home training due to the breakdown of the family. There seems to be an element of the younger generation, who are raised in unstable single parent homes, and who are out of control, running wild, making it bad for everybody else. Even older veteran gang leaders are troubled by what's going on among the younger wanna-be thugs, many of whom don't even have "legitimate" gang affiliations, just "beefs" and an intense adherence to the no-snitch street code.. I seems so hopeless.

Hell, the police couldn't (or wouldn't) protect that dude laying in the street with his blood making designs all over the sidewalk.
What FOOL is going to walk up to the police in broad open public and start pointing out people and where they live and what they saw to police officers who are probably going to be gone and out of sight within 2 hours leaving them at home all alone without police protection?
Most people aren't stupid.
If you see the majority of people in a given community engaging in a particular pattern of behavior there's usually a reason WHY.
