I love Maine. As much as I despise the long winters (and wish summer was longer) I can't imagine living anywhere else.

One out of every 40 people in Maine holds a CCW. On top of that, you can legally open-carry just about everywhere except federal property.

Except for junkies looking for Oxycontin and vandals stealing copper from empty buildings, you just don't risk it.

FWIW, Maine also has a 95% non-minority population, and the 2nd oldest population in the country.

Mr. Ekshun: Ooba Tooba: Anyone have any stats on white vs black robbery rates in the U.S.? Maybe we can stop pussyfooting around this topic here then. /lots of black folk do lots of robbing around my town/

Do you, for instance, live in Africa? Or are you insinuating that most crime in America is perpetrated by Americans? Because that would be preposterous.

Your comments amuse me. Personally, I could give a damn who commits more crime. Lock up who does. I was compelled to comment because of the typical "wonder why Detroit has more crime, ohmmeter" and "what really you insinuating here" type comments that fill up these threads. In regards to my area, there is maybe 15% black population, and it appears through all local media, and carryout crime mags, that a percentage of that particular 15% is committing 90% of the crimes. Take it as you will.

The man was described as white, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing 180 to 200 pounds and wearing a black knit hat, dark pants, a black coat and black sunglasses, police said.

Ah so that's why this thread is about black people.

Mainers are crazy, so you better be damn sure you know what you're doing if you pull a gun on one.

They have two forms of currency: ammo and beanie babies.

Majick Thise: Who robs a laundromat?

Good point... isn't most of their cash tied up in multiple machines?  What... did the robber demand the workers (if there were even any, many are unmanned) go machine to machine and empty the quarters?
