Sweet HOME CHICAGO!~


A great City! Awesome people! Err... Well most of us... And walk down the wrong street.... Well... You just may become a statistic to put it lightly....

A little sensationalistic... Still a very scary one at that....

Thank you for putting this up Austus... And just so you know.... During me typing this on the Southside of Chicago... Another shooting just occured

I know, but sometimes you need to 'market' your thread.

So, as a native Chicagoan, what is your sentiment on the media's portrayal of the violence and the overall impact of Chicago's draconian gun laws?

The number of American casualties in the Middle East, both Iraq and Afghanistan, top 6000 so you are being a bit misleading in selecting what statistics you use.

Faces of the Fallen


6,668 U.S. service members have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom


Not to mention, over this same time period over 2,000 active duty service members have taken their own lives.

Rising Suicides Stump Leaders


Defense Department statistics indicate that since January, 2001, 2,293 active-duty service members have taken their own lives, including the ones who never deployed overseas.


So the comparison is more like 7000 to 5400 in favor of the wars in the Middle East.

The title is quite clear. It says 'Afghanistan". If someone (you) does not understand that then there really is not much else I can do to help you.

Even before the start of Sunday morning worship services today, 35 people (incl. several children) had been shot within Chicago city limits over the past 48 hours. It's amazing how nonchalant it's all become. Local T.V. nightly news doesn't even report on the shootings any longer...unless it's 3 or more shot at the same time.
