Police presence is very much dependent on where you are.  I live in a relatively safe part of Queens, and I rarely see police walking around.  This, despite the fact that I'm maybe 8 blocks from a precinct (#112).  A few years ago, I was working at 59th and Lex, and saw cops a lot, including the Hercules teams.  But, that was mostly anti-terrorism work.

So, I neither feel unsafe from crime, nor a heavy-handed police presence.  Might be different in Bed-Stuy, I can't say.

The Vice video about Chicago, called Chiraq, should be required watching for every American:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7q3tokn4ew&feature=player_embedded

Where Vice gets it wrong is that Chicago's violence isn't driven by normal people getting their hands on guns and turning into maniacs. Chicago's violence is the product of decades long lack of real cultural leadership, economic advancement and the allowance of base ignorance to fester into a war zone.

It's important for Libs to constantly point out that Obama is black.  Nobody cares, nobody else mentions it, and it has nothing to do with anything.  But if you bring that up, you can avoid discussing the myriad failed policies.

"Gun control doesn't work?  Well the President is black!"
"Keynsian economics doesn't work?  Well the President is black!"
"Foreign policy is an incoherent muddle?  Well the President is black!"

If you Libs could treat a black man just the same as a white, you wouldn't even have nominated him for re-election.

The right of the people to keep and bear arms is a clause dependent on them being part of a well-regulated militia, which is recognized as vital to keeping the United States from being annexed by another country.  In other words:  the Federal government is permitted by its citizens to keep a standing army to defend the nation, and in order to do so the members of that army must be allowed to have weapons.

Hmmmm... good question.  Lou Malnatis delivers via FedEx (or UPS, I forget) all over the USA.  We send our clients deep dish pizza every year for Christmas.  Out of the country?  Probably not, but you could look them up.  Its expensive in the US to ship, I assume it would be pretty crazy outside of the US.

But yeah, its very good stuff.  And if you're going to drop $100k on us for services, you've got a $70 deep dish coming on us.  ;)

Hmmmm... good question.  Lou Malnatis delivers via FedEx (or UPS, I forget) all over the USA.  We send our clients deep dish pizza every year for Christmas.  Out of the country?  Probably not, but you could look them up.  Its expensive in the US to ship, I assume it would be pretty crazy outside of the US.

But yeah, its very good stuff.  And if you're going to drop $100k on us for services, you've got a $70 deep dish coming on us.  ;)


Just might be worth it.......cheque is in the mail.

Full Metal Retard: HotWingAgenda: Full Metal Retard: Senseless_drivel: A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Clearly a failure to regulate the militia.

Its time to repeal the second amendment and put something more relavent in its place. It is, after all, an amendment to our Constitution which is supposed to be a living document.


Help me read that.  Does it say "the right of the States to form a militia"  or does it say, "The right of the people to keep and bear arms"?


That thick heavy pizza is like eating a loaf of bread.  Better to have a thin crust with a higher toppings to crust ratio.

The right of the people to keep and bear arms is a clause dependent on them being part of a well-regulated militia, which is recognized as vital to keeping the United States from being annexed by another country.  In other words:  the Federal government is permitted by its citizens to keep a standing army to defend the nation, and in order to do so the members of that army must be allowed to have weapons.


False, and just made up off the top of your head.  I like how you muddle together State, Federal and individual.

Here, I'll help you sort it out: "The right of the People...".

Every single man who  signed the Declaration of Independence and voted for the Constitition was a gun owner.  Every one.


But they weren't gun obsessed psychopaths. The constitution should be amended to say you only have the right to the style and quality of gun that was common when the constitution was originally signed. It's the only way to be sure their intent is being fulfilled.

My first thought is that the government could unjustly redefine illegal but that's not the only problem I have with it. WTF are all these unregulated people doing with guns? Is the Amendment intentionally an unenforceable oxymoron? I think not.

Something along the lines of requiring that bearing said arms needs to be 'in direct support of the well regulated militia (not the right to concealed carry on trips to McDonald's, Starbucks, etc. The well regulated militia needs to be real not some fantasy. I, for example, am over 45 and, therefore, no eligible to be a member of the legal definition of a milita so why should I be allowed to walk the streets with a gun), home defense (during the presence of the clear and imminent threat of danger) or for regulated sport' appropriate.

Personal defense outside (and in) the home is not something that government should try to regulate completely away. Chicago (and, in too many cases, the UK) is a clear example of where this is a failure. Any preservation of "militia" must take into account that the people need protection _from_ the government (see Jefferson ad nauseum). Protection from corrupt government is a founding principle of this country.

Being over 45 makes you more at risk from violent thugs, not less, so deadly force is an equalizer that must not be denied to the law-abiding.

Currently, in most jurisdictions, any resistance of illegal use of police power is considered a crime. This is insane. Too many loved ones (including pets) have died as a result. I don't have a solution, but this is a clear problem that won't go away.

There have been a variety of controversies about "the calling out of the militia", like, who has the authority to do the calling. What isn't, and has never been, controversial, is for what purpose it would be done: to suppress insurrections and repel invasions. That's what the Constitutional authority specifically delineates, that's what the founders had in mind. All of your rebel fantasies about the founders planting the seeds to have armed patriots overthrow the entire framework of powers they crafted themselves is complete mental masturbation.

ggecko: rhiannon: I really can't even imagine living in a city with that much violence.

Have to go by per capita, most small towns have higher murder and violent crime rates.


Ehhhh, yes and no...

Per 100k statistics compiled by the DOJ and FBI don't agree with you on that, nor does the research showing that urbanized poverty and gang culture contribute more to violent crime than their rural counterparts. In rural or small town America, pockets of poverty and criminal activity tend to be spread out and marginalized meaning a lot less opportunity for criminal enterprises to gain traction or clash with the un-involved. But in urban environments, most of these elements are crammed into high density areas of extreme poverty and violence thanks to the mid-century mindset that putting subsidized housing in one area would somehow make it easier for the cops to keep a handle on everything. There are, of course, exceptions to the rule. Flint Michigan was recently named by the FBI as the "most dangerous city in the US" and while it's far from being a true rural entity or small town, it's certainly not Chicago.

Now with Chicago, it's difficult to place them anywhere on a list because the metropolitan police departments and the DA's office have not been forthcoming with their statistics. In fact, the FBI lists them as "N/A" in many crime categories including "total violent crimes per 100k" "forcible rapes" and "non negligent manslaughter" Their outright murder rate however, is just behind Baltimore and Detriot.

But the deep dish thing ain't a pizza you can get outside of the windy city. If it were that good, it would be international.


There's a pizza place in Louisville, KY, on Fourth Street just north of Winkler, called Windy City Pizzeria. They specialize in a deep dish pizza with a bottom crust stuffed with enough cheese to choke a horse: there's more cheese than dough there.

Personally I prefer my crust thin, soft and unstuffed, and don't skimp on the cheese and sauce either. And when I ask for anchovies it's not a joke: it they won't give me anchovies they should take it off the Toppings list. (Yummy anchovies, the bacon of the sea!)

I'm not sure why you think so, but I guess everyone likes different things.  Granted I haven't been there in years since I moved, but I always thought it was a decent area (maybe not on game day).  Basically everywhere from Lakeview (Belmont/Clark) up to the Metro was where I hung out a lot as a teenager in the 90's so it has a certain nostalgia for me.  When I come home to visit my parents (like now) we mostly spend our time downtown/magnificent mile/gold coast areas.  As much as I never want to live here again, I do think it's quite a great city in a lot of ways, especially during the summer (other than the humidity).

There are patches where you simply just don't go.  None of these shootings happened in downtown Chicago.  There is a ring of bad areas just outside the main part of the city, and before the outlying suburbs.  There's never a reason for you to be in those places to begin with, so there's no danger to you.  That doesn't mean the city shouldn't do something about it, but it's not like you are going to get fired upon when walking in the loop or anything.

jpo2269: Here in Atlanta, we don't have a "style" but are lucky enough to have access to many different versions of Pizza.  Baby Tommy's NY Style is the bomb.


I have recently learned that Detroit actually has its own style and have noticed "Jet's Pizza" is starting to open up some shops in the burbs.  Granted it is a chain, but has anyone had a Jet's pizza?  Good? Bad?  Typical chain?


You have to try Rosa's Pizza downtown. Best pizza in the city. Too bad it right by 5 Points station, though. Lines around the block at lunch time Monday thru Friday.

Full Metal Retard: Help me read that. Does it say "the right of the States to form a militia" or does it say, "The right of the people to keep and bear arms"?


Commas, the new period.

Oh, I guess that should be Commas.  The new period.
That begs the question: what's the new period?  And what the hell did I mention commas for?

doglover: I like a good pizza. And there's many kinds.

But the deep dish thing ain't a pizza you can get outside of the windy city. If it were that good, it would be international.


I actually prefer deep dish. Can get it from several pizza shops here.

Arthur Jumbles: recoil47: rhiannon: I really can't even imagine living in a city with that much violence.

There are patches where you simply just don't go.  None of these shootings happened in downtown Chicago.  There is a ring of bad areas just outside the main part of the city, and before the outlying suburbs.  There's never a reason for you to be in those places to begin with, so there's no danger to you.  That doesn't mean the city shouldn't do something about it, but it's not like you are going to get fired upon when walking in the loop or anything.

I can't remember the last time I hard about a white person killed in a drive by.


We know when and how to duck.

/HA!

snitramc: 20 miles north or 20 miles south? Because east to west, 100% of the city is within 20 miles of Lake Michigan.


Oh, so you did get it?
Or not.

Wow, you're in a gang, huh? Between that and farking yourself you might just rank up there with that slop that adheres itself to sewer grates.

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: So, NYC is just like Stalinist Russia? Do the gene pool a favor and go kill yourself.



Your profile has one of those silly political charts that puts you in the left/libertarian quadrant. That comment seems more like someone in the right/authoritarian one. Far right. Like, "trains on schedule" right.

Gun fans: be warned that when things like this happen, people are going to say mean things and hurt your little feelings. But at the end of the day nothing is going to change and you're going to keep your death toys.

We just got a Jet's down here in St. Louis. Haven't been in to try it yet but it's on my list.

Plus I still say that if someone opened a few Giordano's in the St. Louis area they'd do great business.

Yes, St. Louis has a murder problem, but on the flip side I can get any pizza type I want: thin crust St. Louis style, regular hand tossed, NY/NJ style, deep dish and now true Detroit style. I've never understood places where only one style of pizza is allowed.

Frank N Stein: PillsHere: Frank N Stein: PillsHere: People who have never been to Chicago always have this impression that it's some scary ghetto, but the shootings and gang stuff is only located in very small parts of the city that most people never go to.  I feel really bad for the people who have to live in these neighborhoods, but they do not represent a majority of the city.  Go downtown, on the gold coast, the magnificent mile, lincoln park, lakeview, wrigleyville, wicker park, etc. - basically the city itself - and it's a really fabulous place (other than the driving/traffic and politics).  Now if only the mayor would stop ruining it...

Actually, homicides are surprisingly dispersed through different neighborhoods.

Also, avoid wrigleyville. It may not be ghetto, but it's by far the shiattiest neighborhood in the city.

I'm not sure why you think so, but I guess everyone likes different things.  Granted I haven't been there in years since I moved, but I always thought it was a decent area (maybe not on game day).  Basically everywhere from Lakeview (Belmont/Clark) up to the Metro was where I hung out a lot as a teenager in the 90's so it has a certain nostalgia for me.  When I come home to visit my parents (like now) we mostly spend our time downtown/magnificent mile/gold coast areas.  As much as I never want to live here again, I do think it's quite a great city in a lot of ways, especially during the summer (other than the humidity).

Wrigleyville is infested with jersey shore types.


They're not that bad.

Though Trixie wearing a pink Cubs cap and jersey needs to go back to Naperville or wherever she cam from.

Wife And kids went to Genos on Superior in Chicago, same place I took her on our first date. We both worked for an airline then, a flew to Chicago for a lunch date. Flew back the same day. Anyway, after that, the kids were clamoring for deep dish the rest of the vacation. We still think it's the best, though the kids are outta the house now. Sorry, but NY style pie is too much like Totinos when we have it. Not being a food snob, but when you get up in years, you know what you like. Not hating on anything, just liking some things more..

99.998er,

Thanks for the suggestion, will have to try it out.  While it might be in lil-5, I have driven down to that area to pick up Fox Bros. so why not to try good pizza?
