You're so funny Don, you have no clue where I've been.

BTW, you calling Chicago a drug and hooker infested border town ?
Maybe it's those Canadian Gang bangers crossing the border that brings all the crime into Chicago.

Another BTW, Any American would have to be a severe FOOL to go anywhere into Mexico today.
Yes, they want you to think the resorts are all sunny and peachy.
Would you risk your families life by taking them into that War Zone ?

Stupidity should not be tolerated.
Stupidity is stupidity no matter what ethnicity it is. We should be trying to find solutions to solve problems so that there will be safer communities.

The solutions are clear.


They're just not being spread to the masses. We might be informed here on city-data but the rest of the population is clueless. We have to do more to "wake up" the rest of the country. I'm beginning to do my part.

There are solutions. Education and family are a few places to start. If the family unit is strong and stable, that can build from that. It starts with more skills. Alot of people who get involved in crime have low education attainment, and very often, no skills. It will require education being heavily emphasized. It will require the parents to do their job. It will require getting gangs off of the street.

In addition, alot of the crime is linked to the illicit drug trade. Should people use illicit drugs? No. However, locking people up for it isn't stopping people from shooting one another. Drugs are in demand and some people make money from it. Banning hang gun sales in Chicago hasn't worked. Some people just ship guns in from other places.

We either have to come up with some real solutions to solve real problems, or the problems would get solved under Singapore style government. And being that this is the USA, I do not think anyone would want to live under the kind of government that Singapore does. I sure wouldn't want it. We need to come up with implement smarter solutions.
