I'm a real ass today, and I want to smoke a cigarette bad but I won't. No disrespect, we're fellow servicemen and you sound like a good guy. I'm jumping off the boards today, this non-smoking is driving me nuts and I'm saying things I'll regret later.

Peace from a nicotine addict.

I even posted this in case I went mad today: www.abovetopsecret.com...
No problem. I quit when I left the service. I can relate. Hang in there.

When will the collective whole realize that it's not about the color of your skin but how you act and carry yourself.

It's disturbing and disheartening to hear stories like this. The people committing these crimes are the same ones who scream for equality but walk around calling each other the N word.

I read this article this morning. It took almost two weeks for this story to come to light?...
...WOW I guess the MSM is busy with other things.

I would hate to do it, but if anyone kicked my door down with my wife and children in the house I would not hesitate. Regardless the age of intruder they get one warning shot of after that its either 45 halo point or a slug...it is what it is.

I can't wait for the day when these "youths" attack somebody who's
armed to the teeth. Of course him/her will then be on death row for hate crime.

I won't lie and say that I have an answer to all of these things, but it would be great to give peace a chance and learn to work together as the whole human race instead breaking people up into different categories. Yes, I realize that this might all be a dream, but it is possible but you have to be realistic about it. If there is a direct threat to you and your family, you have the right to defend yourself and take care of the situation.


Until the idiots in this country stop believing the garbage coming from Washington which is for the sole purpose of keeping us fighting each other, this will keep escalating.

Both Democrats and Republicans are guilty of encouraging this behavior. It keeps us from watching them and at the same time the mindless masses beg them for help, It's the greatest mind control trick ever devised.

No, I'm not a democrat, but I do try to look at things fairly. Obama was not there, Pelosi was not there, just those kids and that man. That's it's.

You guys are just like all the sheep you screech about.



you'd be eating your words if it came out that this was instigated by the racist remarks of obama......you are just as guilty at jumping to conclusions as anyone else is....you might want to rethink your position.....you don't know what those kids were thinking....it's very possible that the op might be right....

I agree Mr. Darth.

Sadly, it often takes something awful and traumatic for people to drop their naivete and see the world for what it is.

I welcome those punks to come to L.A. with their ignorance, them and their lousy parents.

I would hold the Democratic government of the city responsible.

Mayors of Philidelphia

1952 Joseph S. Clark Jr. January 7, Democratic
1956 Richardson Dilworth January 2, Democratic
1962 James Hugh Joseph Tate February 12, Democratic
1980 Frank L. Rizzo January 3, Democratic
1984 William J. Green III January 7, Democratic
1992 W. Wilson Goode January 2, Democratic
1999 Edward G. Rendell January 6, Democratic
2008 John F. Street December 21, Democratic
2008 Michael Nutter January 7, Democratic


Ever since the last republican was voted out in 1952
it has been purely Democratic Mayors of Philidelphia.
Uninterupted and in a continuous string, even when
forced to resign it is always another Democrat who
replaces them. And this has happened twice since
1952 where it had never happened before.

Let's face it folks.
Philidelphia, the birth place of the constitution,
is a casualty of the cold war.

The KGB funded hippie movement got so many people
so angry at percieved corruption
that the Government was replaced
and socialism has ruled there ever since.

Now I guess we are out of other peoples money
and are blaming other people's skin instead.

What I don't understand is
how such blatant anti authoritarianism,
as exists in Philly,
can be winked at and offered the protection of a news blackout.

That's the only color I'm interested in.
The color of my coverage, and there are a lot of holes in this story.

This post will probably fall into the abyss of this spiraling thread, but I want to have said it. There are people in this thread saying...."why don't they just move out?" "why put yourself in this situation?" etc. But like many Americans, citizens of S. Philly don't have the means to up and move, especially in the economic times we are facing now. South Philly is not all bad, it used to be predominantly Italian and Irish, and those roots still run deep. South Philly is mostly Row homes vs. apartments or slumbs, and many people own their homes which have depriciated rapidly over the years. Many of these people are stuck in 30+ yr mortgages with little, to few options to get out. So I want to have said that it is not as easy as it seems to just up and move.

North & West Philly is where the majority of the violent crime is commited in Philadelphia, the recent spike in S. Philly crime is unsettling, since it is supposed to be one of the "safer" areas of the city.

So while I agree that crime is on the increase and to an extent, getting out of control. I also want to put a stop to the ignorant people posting in this thread feeling like they have all the answers to our cities problems, when obviously they have little to no knowlege of Philly itself.

Questioning authority is a duty.
Antiauthoritarianism is a growing dissaster.
It has crossed the threshold.

These are two very different things.

My socio-psycho-historio-graph of the whole thing is this.

Antiauthoritarianism used to be cute in school,
when the student really did know more than the teacher
and left the class in a state of more understanding,
but now it has become code-name thugg and
the graves are already dug.

The whole libeal system is antiauthoritarianism in Philidelphia
If I owned a radio station I could probably get convictions,
then add in the conspiracy laws and we could start
indicting Dem leaders.

The reason I don't is because the question remains unaswered.
Who is going to address the very real, and growing
strain of Antiauthoritarianism that is running
in larger and larger blow outs.

It's way past the point of cute anymore.


David Grouchy


one must question authority at all times. I personally believe in some type of " authority" indicting politicians that do not do their job.
We do not elect authority, leaders or rulers.. or "deciders":.
We elect representatives of the will of the people. When a political figurehead decides to "overrule" public will, they become a problem.
The masses have accepted the term Political Leader" "leader of the free world" etc.. and it's false.
Power lies in the will of the people.. you just have to have "will", and accept responsibility to do the oversight yourself, at all times.
laziness got us here. Accepting that "Daddy will take care of us" is living a lie.
Take care of yourself and your fellow man... don't wait for Uncle Sam to do it for you.






On a side note, the charts you posted are very interesting.
I'll do my own research into that.. it's sounds like you are onto something.

The reason he does not have a gun is because he lives in the Northeast USA. He lives in Philadelphia where you are literally TRAINED from the time you enter grade school to believe that guns are owned only by the criminals.

I grew up in Philadelphia. If you own a gun, you are a thug, a criminal, a soon to be killer. If you are a law abiding citizen who owns a gun, chances are you are pretty quiet about it and don't tell people. If others knew, you would have police knocking on your door.

As far as the OP goes... the Mother is clearly an idiot. She blames the victim that her son is locked up instead of blaming her son for his own actions? Even if he was a witness, why would he be standing around following a mob who just broke into someone's home. As a witness... wouldnt he have called police or done something to help the victim? If he did neither of those two things, I would suggest he is not a witness at all, he was part of the mob.

Exactly-come in my home I WILL shoot you-if not me my wife will. These people are lucky to leave with their own life. I don't care what color you are, I'm not racist-that's for old people who didn't grow up in an ethnic society. This guy deserves some protection for the time being. I'm willing to utilize my tax money to help him instead of invading other countries.

I'd hate to say it but more black people are racist than white people.

Not exactly. Take, for example, the #tiest state to live in - California. It's perfectly fine to kill someone in self defense, if it was indeed self-defense. If there are no witnesses, you could claim it was self-defense and get away with it. If there were witnesses saying otherwise, you're in deep #.

That said, it's better to kill then to injure. If a man breaks into your home, and threatens your life, but you happen to have the upper hand? You shoot to kill. You miss, and he attempts to flee - and trips over your sprinkler head, he can sue you.

Just another example of our fine state of California.
