WHO is starting to call it "Little Chicago"? YOU?

Mapom, perhaps you watch too much Fox News where the only evidence ever given for any claim is "some people say." Who are the "some people"? If you can't provide legitimate sources, shut the hell up.

Your statement is utterly ridiculous. What does one shooting that is most likely the result a DOMESTIC dispute, if the original poster is correct, have anything to do with something "coming" to this small town? What came to Ripon? This has nothing to do with anything other than someone clearly snapped.

Until we have more information, it's irresponsible to assign blame to anything.

And, if you really think it's becoming "Little Chicago," please, by all means, move to Berlin or Brandon or Fairwater or Rosendale. You'll be happier there, apparently.

Do you think Crandon, WI, is "Little New York" because someone went ballistic up there a few years ago and killed 5 (I think it was 5, but maybe more) people?

Random things happen all over the place, and this sounds like a random thing to me. It's just crazy to make something larger of it until more is known.

"Little Chicago." Nonsense.

I agree annonymous. I couldn't have said it better myself. Little Chicago...what is next. Chicago looses an average of 25 KIDS to homicide each MONTH. That is something to get worried about. One thing tho...the shooting happened in Berlin, so Mapom may stay in Ripon, if, in fact, that is where he/she lives...we have enough FOX minded people around here.

I knew both people and the woman is a very respectable person and the man was a hard working individual that did snap and that all it was, not Little Chicago. Don't judge unless you know them or know the full story.

The person who needs a "chill pill" is the person attempting to stir things up by referring to the town as "Little Chicago."

This event didn't even happen in RIPON, so whoever is using this to call Ripon "little Chicago" needs his or her head examined.
