If drugs like pot were legal we could get more tax dollars to pay for more cops. Pot is suppose to be good for you from what people have been telling me. So I've heard!
In Chicago Da Maya would spend the extra tax money defending lawsuits and for firing cops. Or spending 25 mil on a fountain. They already have Buckingham fountain. Shoot I bet we could get some real Chicagoans to build a stinkin fountain for 10,000 bucks. Or you could get kids to stand on a small bridge and spit for a spit fountain. I'm sure the kids would get a kick out of that. Or pee off the side of building. The kids would have ablast and they could learn about germs and gravity too.

Those would make swell waterfalls.

However, how about a beer can fountain? After the Cubs clinched the division in 1989, the crowd in the middle of Clark & Addison was tossing so many beer cans up in the air that it looked like a fountain. It was a beautiful sight.

I lived in Maywood 40 yrs ago, 1963 - 1972. I was just there for my 40th grammar school reunion. There were plenty of african americans there in the 60s, about 50%. Some of my best years were in Maywood and it was the crucible that formed the rest of my life. I understand some of my white friends still live there. Lets not blame anything on african americans. I live in Niles and two successive house renters across the street from me were busted for drug sales and they were white, imagine that, Hank. Maywood just needs to crack down on this and it will stop.

If it was only drug dealing they did, so be it. These idiots today are nowhere near the old mob. They beat up, rape, attack and kill their own neighbors,family and people they don't even know. They have to depend on welfare to raise them. The violence to strangers and to themselves is the big problem, not selling drugs. This is why they are so detested by everyone. Don't even make a comparison.
White people beat up, attack, rape and kill their own neighbors, family and people they don't know too. This whole world needs help not just blacks or drug dealers. Notice I said help. People are so quick to say punish but no one wants to try to help the ones who may be able to turn their life around. People are so thirsty for blood but what if it was your kid

The statement I made was not about the world or I would agree with some of what you said. It was comparing todays gangs with old time organized crime. THere is no one race that does not commit crime. But the facts are the facts. Where are the gangs at now and who are they? Not in my neighborhood. I detest any violence from any race against anyone.

Maywood is the pits! The animals have taken over that place!
Evanston...maybe next!
MAY be next? Thanks to all the left wingers, it's already there. A bastion of public safety it ain't. But at least Maywood is slightly better off.
