Chicago is a War Zone- BIG NEWS!!!!

Postby GFunkMoneyDog » Thu Jul 12, 2012 9:23 am

I have family that lives in Chicago and it seems that it is nothing short of a War Zone. I saw on the news earlier in the week that over 270 people have been killed in the city since January 2012, and the theme of the newscast was to put blame on the High Temperatures. If you search you can find a few articles that lists the reason as gang related killings and revenge killings (Which is code for black). Many innocent bystanders have been killed including several young children, as young as 2 yrs old. They also have the issues of packs of black youths randomly attacking innocent white residents just because they are white.

Chicago's Tourism Slogan: "Second To None" Which is correct because they are second to none in political corruption, high taxes, gun regulations, gang activity, and racially motivated attacks.

Chicago is not a bad place to vacation. The museums, millennium park, and Willis Tower areas that tourists venture to are nothing like a war zone. Just don't stray from the touristy areas! :D

My husband is going to start working on a case in a bad part of Chicago, and the thought of it wrecks my nerves!! He just rolls his eyes at me, though.

They should have left it named the Sears Tower. I don't think those areas are as safe as you may think. I looked up the towers zip code and entered it in the crime database and it shows lots of crime. I have pasted a few.

I think that all tourist areas/attractions have a risk of thefts. When reading reviews of Disneyland hotels a couple years ago, people were complaining about cars being robbed in the parking garage of nice hotels. Thieves have always preyed on tourists everywhere.

Gotta agree!

Sounds like plenty of thieves live in Harlan, too, based on the HCDC.

More War Zone News!

The Deadliest Global City


For educational purposes.

Chicago likes to compare itself to other world cities, so Ward Room thought it would find out how we rank in violence. It turns out no one can top us. Among what are considered Alpha world cities, Chicago has the highest murder rate -- higher even than the Third World metropolises of Mexico City and Sao Paolo.
