Here is the numbers on where I live..
The county. We have some crime, mostly in Ashburn. We may have 2 or three murders per year. Mostly theft and assault.
Sycamore, where I live, basically NO CRIME. We have one city cop, and he just patrols and writes traffic citations.Quote:

Ashburn, where I grew up. And where all business is, with the exception of a few convenience stores. 90 - 95% of all the crime in the county is committe in Ashburn. And 90% of that is across the tracks. Literally, across the tracks.Quote:

It's odd that we are so lawless here that we have people moving here from the big cities to get away from the crime.:rolleyes:Quote:

Perhaps we should just nationalize the black neighborhoods in everytown America. Since it's lawlessness that should trigger this, the ghetto would be a great place to start. Oh, that's right, it basically already is. I know when I ride through there, I see LOTS of people sitting around on the porch not working.
Shooting labs. Gutsy move, Sherlocks. :rolleyes:
We had a situation in Ohio where the cops served a no-knock warrant in plain clothes at 3am. The guy thought he was getting robbed and starting shooting, the cops shot back hitting him 39 times. He was DOA.
The reason for the warrant "receiving stolen property". They found none.
No charges were filed against the victim or any cops. An "internal review" found no wrongdoing. Case closed.
Unfortunately the dead guy was white so we didnt have any activists here demanding justice. I wish we would have.
