World War 2 London organized sending their children to the countryside to keep them safe from air raids.

It's time America considers well funded public boarding schools for its youth. An idyllic countryside setting would be a great equalizer to break the cycle of poverty. All students could be getting the same education from adult role models that are uncommon back on the streets and Americans would see there's more to the world and culture beyond the limited boundaries of gang turf or surburban bubbles. Start with areas that qualify as war-zones like Chicago.

The Posse Comitatus Act prevents that: you can't use the military for law-enforcement purposes.

Clearly, this is all the fault of someone deciding that the people of Illinois should need a FOID card to legally own a weapon. If we weren't required to have a FOID card, none of there murders would happen.


What the guy in the article was doing is illegal in all 50 states.  More gun laws would not have stopped him.

Disgruntled Goat: Declare the gangs a terrorist threat, which they are.

Use federal funds and all the resources that become available with that classification to wipe them out. As in, maintaining our War on Terror and using military force.

Simplistic, but conceptually feasible.

Pichu0102: How would they go about reclaiming land overrun by organized crime or gangs anyways? What forces could they use? Just police?


Get a bunch of hipsters to move in. Some of them will open trendy restaurants that serve the same ethnic food you used to get in the neighborhood for a quarter of the price. Pretty soon, there'll be overpriced dive-bars, expensive condos, and gastro-pubs, and all the people who used to live there will be forced out because rents will skyrocket. Ta-da!

Gentrification: It works.

Wait.  They make kids go to school on Saturday Night now?   That's outrageous!

came here for this. i don't really see the relation.

I think the real issue is that a city has to create a DMZ in hopes of preventing the killing of school children. If your society has devolved to the point where you can't even be sure your kids can survive a trip to school, you've lost civilization itself.


Well we could, but liberals get their panties in a bunch about surveillance, racial profiling, and the war on black people.

Bontesla: My lottery winning fantasy is opening up a self-sustaining boarding school for high risk youth.

The kids would learn agriculture, cooking, cleaning, light maintenance work, therapy, and have the very best education. The goal would be either vocational certification or college for every one.

I wanted to buy an old five star hotel with a built-in swimming pool, grounds to garden, and posts for security officers to help reduce gang and bad family influences.

I want to call it the Academy for the Gifted.

Alas,I rarely play and will never win.


Don't worry, you have a far better chance of winning the lottery than pulling that off.

My "safe passage" route works wonderfully:  from one terminal of O'Hare airport to another terminal.  There's always a bit of tension over whether the inevitable delay will turn into an overnight stranding, but eventually I always manage to escape that Godforsaken city.

No, not at all. I don't vote based on Race or Party Lines.
Obama was a shiatty Community Activist and brought his poor judgement to the White House.

I used to go to Chicago for a manufacturing based business from 1985 - 2005.  I used to like the trip. The contact I have there says "it's really taken a dive".

My 4th year as an American Citizen Belorussian-American friend in Chicago says the love of Putin is strong. Her safe neighborhood is former KGB Russian Mafia. No shrines like MLK or Malcom X, but they respect Putin.

wildcardjack: How's that half-hearted gun control working for ya?

Just curious, what sort of drugs are funding the gangs these days? It is stuff we'd be willing to talk about legalizing? Is it possible to undercut the funding for gangs? I mean, other than shipping more jobs overseas.


Half-hearted?  They can't keep drugs, phones, weapons and other contraband out of PRISONS!  How exactly will they completely get rid of them in Chicago, in Illinois, or in the entire US?  Oh, you mean gun control for LAW ABIDING citizens.

That's racist.

At least that's how it will be portrayed when the "community leaders" realize their money and power base are threatened.  There's no personal power to be gained from actually helping the poverty-stricken, only from talking about it.


Years ago when Arne Duncan was CEO of CPS, he actually proposed opening boarding schools within the city boundaries. It didn't get any further than a few conversations, but it was one of his best ideas, I think. It would have changed lives for some of those kids.
