I suppose it's good that there are still areas of the city where people can be completely insulated from reality, but then again, those same people also vote and make policies for the rest of us. :-/
Again, you probably should move away from there because you seriously sound unhappy and I don't think there is anything there that will change that feeling for you. I don't think the crime in the city is what is really bothering you there, I think that is mostly just an outlet for you.

"Most Chicagoans" might be a stretch, eh?

Default Really I'm not a liberal

Really we need to get to these kids when they are young. Teach them skills and respect. Boys and girls clubs and after school and other programs are all still around. If the citizens of this great city gave perhaps a bit of time to volunteer or a few bucks to keep these programs alive we would have far fewer issues. These kids simply need guidance and to see that not all adults are indifferent ineffective people. I agree some poor Irish girl will never walk again because some piece of trash beat her head in for 20 bucks. So many innocent people getting hurt. Let's get to the root of this problem !
