    Just out of curiosity is there any place else to even really work in that metropolitan area? I mean really work not some retail or service level job.
    I very well may end up out in dear field here shortly and I have only seen 1/2 way decent paying jobs in the downtown area.

    Either the FAR outlying suburbs where the good companies are, or the clusterfuck downtown area where the good companies are. That's about it. Deerfield is actually pretty decent, a lot of corporate clusters in that area, as well as Lake Forest. (I live close to that area, and so far it's been good.)

    Everything else is crap jobs. Let me know if I can help with the job search, comrade. I've had 2 excellent agents I recommend above all others if you are looking for something in the IT field. Also, don't bring your guns. They don't take kindly to folks with guns round thems here parts. You're only allowed 1 government issued spork, 1 neatly folded square of tin foil, and a **** ton of Mothers Against Everything stickers.

    Well, we will disagree. I can get you numbers because I used to work with troubled youths. You can use the suburban red herring argument, but it is a cultural problem. Oh, I said minorities, which is inclusive of all races, not "blacks."

    See, this is why I deem all LEOs racists lol. All includes "black Leos."


    Which I guess begs the question..how can an entire racial segment of society "fix" something?
    Well, once upon a time it took a civil war. Then later it took riots, civil unrest, protests and a slain civil rights leader. I hope we are a little more progressive than that now.

    Trust me, it is ugly and the PC crowd wants to say it "isn't a race issue." Yeah, whatever it is a culture issue denoted by racial norms and both are closely intertwined.

    How well does the stereotype of them being tougher on blacks then white cops hold up in your opinion?

    Case by case to me. I've encountered some I think were showing out and others that were the exact opposite.

    I guess its splitting hairs but Ive always thought that a "racial issue" implied something almost genetic or at least indicitive of the race in general. I don't know that behavior is really a "racial" thing as much as its a cultural thing. But as you said the cultural issue is interwoven with race within the areas most effected by crime and violence so I guess its difficult to talk about "culture" without racial overtones.

    Since we are discussing it...what is your opinon on the subject? Is "culture" separate from economics/poverty? Is it the economic disparity that drives things or does the "culture" hold people within the economic bracket? What is the position of education in the mix? It sometimes becomes a "snake eating tail" issue. And what can be done to improve the situation? And by whom? Isn't it presumptuous or even arrogant for someone "outside" to say "you should change"?

    Along this route. Ive always been puzzled at the logic behind the people who complain about the racial disparity in arrest statistics, the implication being that those statistics mean people are either being wrongfully arrested or that "white" criminals are not being arretsed when they should be.

    The fact of the matter is that minorities are also more often the VICTIM of crime. It always seemed to me that people complaining about who is getting arrested don't appear to give a damn about the victims.
