I go to Omaha a couple of times a year to visit family. It's a TERRIBLE city.

That ain't a guido. headline is fail.

Looks to be jumpsuit given to suspects when clothes are takes as evidence. not a popped collar.

And the punk isn't pouting. those are natural big lips.

Guidos would rather be at the gym rather than a ratty vacant apartment

Guido thread?

I also go a couple times a year and I don't mind it. Convenient airport, good restaurants, bars, hotels, galleries, okay golf. I try hard to avoid going during LLWS though.

Well, there's that one area downtown that's got some nice places. And Homer's is a VERY cool CD shop. . . So there IS that.

Bar-hopping after dark is a bad idea, tho.

The zoo is pretty nice. Quest center isn't too shabby either. University of Nebraska Omaha was also pretty affordable last time I checked. I've also heard good things about the grade school system there. Nightlife is not amazing, but there is plenty to do, it just takes a little bit of effort to find it.

The weather is crap. There are no strip clubs, only bikini bars, crappy ones at that. However, there are casinos and decent gentlemen's clubs across the river in Iowa.

In all, four teens were arrested in connection with Taylor's death. Larry Fountain, 19, was to have his preliminary hearing later Tuesday. Fountain is charged with robbery and conspiracy. He was the first of the four to be arrested after investigators used cell phone records traced to Fountain's mother.

Gibbs and McClain were arrested Sunday morning after showing up at a church near 30th and Lake Streets. On a previous day, they had gone to at least one friend's house trying to find a place to sleep and clean up, but were refused.

Rinn said Gibbs confessed to at least one friend that he was the person in the news who stabbed the delivery driver. Rinn said he didn't express remorse, just fear that he would get caught and go to jail.

McClain, meanwhile, was heard on a recorded jail phone call saying he went through Taylor's pockets after Taylor was stabbed.


Ordinarily I'd say it's a pity their futures are ruined now, but I suspect these geniuses weren't going to grow up to be rocket scientists.

This is a contender for worst robbery plan ever.

My sister lives in LaVista. The drive from the airport to her place is effing scary, even in broad daylight. Lots of BAD areas in that city!

I grew up in Sioux City. The best thing that area's got going for it is the reservation casinos.

Yeah, the zoo's cool. You couldn't pay me to live there, though.

markfara: I go to Omaha a couple of times a year to visit family. It's a TERRIBLE city.

Seriously?

I lived up there for awhile and it's one of my favorite cities. And I've walked around downtown several times after dark and it's fairly safe, also a lot of things to do down there. Also the people and even the police were really polite which I found odd for a larger city. Some people were saying some of the areas surrounding downtown were "ghetto" but my husband drove around there a lot for work and it didn't seem that bad. Then again I'm from Cincinnati and he works in Houston a lot, so our idea of ghetto is probably a little different...

Though my husband did see someone throw a beer bottle at a limo and the rider got out and beat the shiat out of the guy...
But I think if you're throwing beer bottles at cars you should probably expect something like that.

Downtown after dark's mostly gay bars, wandering derelicts, and carloads of punks looking for trouble. I wouldn't advise a woman to walk around there alone.

/Nothing wrong with gay bars.
//The violent crime rate there is pretty high. The story we're posting on here is NOT atypical for the area.

As a delivery driver, I am not getting a kick out of this. Also, it looks like I'm not getting a tip out of this, either.
 
2010-10-13 07:57:15 AM
My first thought when reading the headline was that subby was generalizing the term "guido" into all frat boy jock douche types. In my Midwest town, these douchebags have invaded, and they are killing me, in the sense that they think $1 is a tip, and $0 is acceptable if I happen to make them answer the door during the game.

I was walking around with my husband at 2 a.m. and it was still mostly businessman and stuff. markfara: //The violent crime rate there is pretty high. The story we're posting on here is NOT atypical for the area.

The violent crime there is actually fairly low compared to most major cities and cities of that size, and is mostly black on black and between people that know each other (as in there's not many cases of just random people being attacked walking around). Unless you're out looking for trouble or specifically frequenting neighborhoods/businesses where that type of person hangs out, you're fairly safe, which goes for a lot of other major cities also.

By your comments I'm guessing you haven't been to or lived in many urban areas. I have travelled/lived in large cities all over the south, midwest, and northeast, and Omaha is by far one of the safest.
 
2010-10-13 08:01:25 AM
And another comment in regards to "the story is not atypical for the area", pizza drivers in ANY large city are at risk of being robbed or attacked due the fact that they carry around money, travel around the city a lot, and often have to deliver to rough neighborhoods.
 
2010-10-13 08:16:09 AM
Was the pizza not orange enough?

I was a pizza double-agent: I was employed by Domino's and Pizza Hut at the same time.

FTFA, the victim was a hair over 5 feet and weighed 100 lbs? When I was delivering, the only drivers we sent out when it got late were the bigger males who had some experience and common sense. If you got to an area and didn't like what you saw, you'd skip the delivery and go onto the next, no questions asked.

Not sure if its legal, but if they required that orders after a certain time of night be secured with a credit card, it would reduce the danger of a driver being lured to an area to be mugged.

String them both up. No amount of rehabilitation will ever make them a productive member of society. Kill them now and let them serve as an example.

Not my take on it, but it's nice if you're right. . . since my sister lives there and all. My impressions of the place come from what I've seen when visiting, along with watching the local news there (and some pretty scary experiences my sister's had while just going about her business). I don't know when you lived there, but the racial component of the city has changed quite a bit in the last couple of decades. There are a lot more poor hispanic areas in the city these days, with a corresponding uptick in violent crime.

I actually do quite a bit of traveling, and have spent time in quite a few major cities. I feel less safe in downtown Omaha at night than I do in, say, London, or Paris, or Indianapolis, or NYC, mostly because those latter places tend to support a higher class of night life.

There ARE worse places than Omaha, of course. . . Detroit, Dayton, OH. . . But Omaha being safe? Again, not really my take on it.

Actually, you should come to Omaha during the LLWS. Because I think it's in New York or somewhere, so there are fewer baseball fans here. Now the CWS, yeah, you might want to stay away.

That said... if you're in North O and parts of South O there are issues. If you're in mid town, West O and the surrounding areas (that actually touch Omaha and can hardly be distinguished from Omaha) such as LaVista, Ralston, Papillion, Bellevue, Elkhorn etc, they are as safe as any other place I've lived.

This happened as a result of white racism, uneven wealth distribution, and lack of education.

I'm just glad that this pizza delivery driver didn't try to take the law into his own hands by carrying a gun for self-defense. I mean, yeah, he lost his life, but at the important thing here is that he didn't harm his attackers by using a gun.

So.... what (allegedly) happened? Where did the victim come from? This article is so poorly written, the headline should simply say: "FAIL". So, after re-reading the article, I can assume the two (or was it four?) defendants ordered a pizza to an empty apartment with the intention of robbing the delivery person. Wow...

The more I think about it, the headline "FAIL" works on sooooooo many levels... Still. I hope the author's Alma Matre is proud.

Is white racism when a white person says that Jewish and Italian people aren't really white? Cause we've all heard that from time to time and rolled our eyes.

So is that what you mean?
