Good to hear, but not that big of an accomplishment in my eye.

Will probably pick up in a week or two.

I only got to play it for 5 minutes last night but it was awesome. Plan on getting some playing in tonight.

FYI: If you buy it from gamestop, it comes with a code so you can have access to use the blimp without going against your trophies, etc. I didn't even know until my brother in law showed me.

Thirteen people have been shot at a park on Chicago's southwest side, including a 3-year-old boy who was in critical condition. Officer Amina Greer said the shooting occurred shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday. A witness, Julian Harris, told the Chicago Sun-Times that dreadlocked men fired at him from a gray sedan before turning toward Cornell Square Park in Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood and firing at people. He said his 3-year-old nephew was wounded in the cheek.

How about offering $1,000 rewards for information that leads to an arrest in relation to a violent crime? You'll have people lined up around the block and can probably do a lot more damage that way than police combing through the streets.

From there, you can either prosecute the guy you brought in or work out a deal with him/her to get someone bigger.

Chicago would actually need to have a thousand dollars on hand to afford that idea, though.

Yeah, I hear ya. At the same time, they can cancel the Governor's ball or some other frivolous garbarge. It would be a good political move too. Come out and say, you know, we have pretty good Christmas parties, galas, what have you, but we're cancelling them state wide this year and using that money to get after this problem.

Eh, I don't know what can be done to fix it, but I do know that it's a human tragedy, a blight on the city of Chicago, and pretty much a guarantee that I'll never visit the south and west sides beyond the near south and west sides (like for a visit to Comiskey and obviously the UC).

Yeah, bottom line is nobody with the power to fix it either A. gives a **** -or- B. isn't thinking hard enough. This shouldn't be an ongoing saga like it has been and I agree, it is a disgrace and makes us all look bad.

Wouldn't be at all against a federal investigation of our politicians, not just certain individuals, everyone.

I was under impression that the FBI had a permanent "Illinois politicians, et al" file open at all times.

And the problem with Chicago is how localized the violence is. North Side is fine, so North Siders don't care. Loop's fine, so Loopers don't care. Near South Side's fine, so Near South Siders don't care. Near West Side's fine, so Near West Siders don't care. And those polticians that represent the troubled areas live in a handful of gated community enclaves that are fine despite being surrounded by the blighted areas, so they don't care either.

As great as the Loop is and the North Side is and a handful of other areas are, their greatness is the reason why there isn't a bigger push to fix the areas that are troubled.

Still got three years for the possibility of that to go from 0 to 0.000001

Maybe they do but this **** is a ****ing gong show. All of that national publicity and no results. Just sweep all the bad neighborhoods, play the national security card.

Case in point for how ****ed up Chicago is.... but only in some areas and for some people.

Quote:
1671 people have been shot in Chicago so far this year, over 98% black and Latino.

Can't say for sure if those are entirely accurate numbers, though.
