SATURDAY
12:05 a.m.: A 17-year-old boy stabbed five times - four in the back - by a suspect who flees from 21st St. and 37th Ave in Queens.


Yeah that's a rough area over there... wouldn't wander around there after dark.

Chicago deep dish and NYC pizza are two different animals. Apples and oranges there.

Now subs, you weren't alive during the late 70s/early 80s were you? Back then that was called "a typical night."

AK-47, when you absolutely, positively have to kill every motherfarker in the house!

NYC pizza is not an animal. It's just a flat food product.

Chicago deep dish pizza has a digestive tract and circulatory system, but it doesn't have a spine so it doesn't fall under phylum chordata. It's probably an annelid, just a very wide and short one.

Drop your weapon. You have 20 seconds to comply.

No, you're thinking of sparklers. Or maybe foam nunchucks.

Give me a break New Yorkers were doing this to each other before Chicago burned to the ground!
 
2012-07-08 02:24:38 PM
This is why New York needs a "KNIFE Free Act" (Knives Not Individual Freedom Exercise) Bill that will call for all pocket, kitchen, industrial, and packaging knives to be registered, have background checks run on the owners, and will require culinary classes for anyone wishing to possess one.

There, problem solved!

I hate crime stats. I hate these worthless articles just mentioning numbers.

The vast (like near 100%) majority of violent crime is between people who have some sort of relationship. Drug dealer/drug buyer, rival gang members, retaliation for a past violent crime, domestic violence.

All in all, if you aren't part of that system... you're not going to get hurt. Random crime is very rare. And even then, its generally partially the victim's fault. (e.g. getting mugged because you're walking alone in the middle of the night where you should know better not to be doing so.)

I've lived in the heart of one of the most violent cities in America for 7 years. I know hundreds of people. Only twice has there been an incident with anyone I know. A random mugging outside a grocery store, and an attempted mugging that my friend was able to luckily avoid because he was on bike.

However, "New Orleans is the murder capital of the country" stories pop up all the time.

Look, I don't want anyone murdered. I'm a human being, and feel for any family that has to deal with that. But face it... most murders are centered around people already engaged in dangerous behavior.

If you saw a story about deaths being up in some wooded area with lots of cliffs, would you be scared to enter such an area? How about if I told you all those deaths were people base jumping off a cliff? Same deal.

People don't seem to like per-capita statistics. When that is looked at, neither Chicago or New York break the top 10 in violent crimes, or even the top 15. You have to go to New Orleans, Memphis, or the perpetual embarrassment of the U.S., Detroit, for that. This would be like saying China is a better place to live than Switzerland because they have more food and technological conveniences.
 
2012-07-08 02:56:32 PM
You could have been a little more specific, subby.

I thought you meant that there was a rash of dead people voting multiple times in elections, and that some junior senator was going to run for president.

yup. thank you
 
2012-07-08 03:01:12 PM
I thought maybe getting murdered was part of the point of New York City. Or any city really. You want 24 hour food deliverty, etc. you take your chance of maybe getting stabbed a bit.

Since Chicago is the new Detroit, good luck with the path you're on New York...


CSB time...

I was visiting New York with my wife in '99. We were walking through Central Park when 200 ft away a brawl broke out between ~50 teenagers. We were standing right next to a couple of park rangers on horseback when this happened. The conversation overheard went pretty much like this:

Cop #1: Should we get in there?

Cop #2: Not yet, lets see if they can sort this thing out for themselves first.

~crowd disperses after 4 minutes, 5-6 people are on the ground not moving~

Cop #2: Alright, lets go.

Sounds like they sorted it out pretty well. No point in the cops going in there while the brawl is going on because they will become the targets for all sides.
