Russian roulette is to be played with a revolver. One bullet is loaded into the revolver then the chamber is spun so that no one knows where the bullet is. The two people then take turns aiming the gun to their head and pulling the trigger. The game was sometimes played instead of dueling due to a wide difference in skill between the angered parties.

The only way I see playing with a semi-automatic would be to have one live round mixed with blanks? But the game is archaic, and not really a test of anything but luck. So these were just either very stupid people, very egotistical people, or just very impressionable people.

Black or white they had family, and even though it was an ignorant thing to do I can bet we've all done something stupid , maybe not that stupid, but stupid none the less. I'm sure some of these racial remarks are from young people and a few old people who still have a problem dealing with racism, but if it was your son or brother you wouldn't be saying these things. Love conquers all. Yes there is a terible amount of crime that is related more to blacks in Jackson and I don't see it getting better no time soon. I don't know what the solution is other than to say good parents being one of the solutions. Jackson, tn is in a terrible shape as far as crimes being committed and I have my self decided to move because of it. We that live here know there areas where the calls go out, especially if you have a scanner. Lincoln Courts, Allenton Heights, West Old Hickory, E. Chester St. 504 Daughtery St, also known as East Pointe Apts, Pretty much the east side of Jackson starting at Highland and Campbell St.and going east. Airways Blvd, Hollywood Ave, James Buchanan St, Roosevelt Parkway. These are just a few I have mentioned to show you why Jackson isn't going to get better anytime soon if it is even possible for Jackson to recover. It's all about behaviour and because of bad or lack of parenting is the cause. Don't think it's only blacks, it's also whites, mexicans, but no where near what blacks do, not even close what young blacks do, sad situation.

Many of the crimes in Jackson are actually committed by people from Memphis or Nashville that travel through Jackson. Jackson isn't called the hub city for nothing, as many drug runners use Jackson to distribute drugs to the surrounding rural areas, and as we all know, where you find drugs, you find crime.

Actually that's not correct and it's easy to prove by watching the news for one month and you will see that 90% are home grown. Majority of young blacks are lazy, have no desire to educate themselves, get a job. They prefer to live off of others. Black females consider welfare to be a job. Proof of this by looking at the census at the Health Dept, Human Services, free serices such as Rifa,I can go on and on and on and on, it's just a fact that an extreme majority of all blacks, young and old are living off of some type of service instead of getting an education or employment. Look at the crimes being committed by young teens now such as the killing of the locksmith next to Brookfield Apts. This is all due to no parental control because the parents of these kids are committing the crimes along with there kids , it's just pure laziness, wanting something for nothing, pathetic. Look at the jail population here in Jackson, blacks are #1 in that category. What do you see in our projects , blacks are #1 there also. Blacks are # 1 in crimes, welfare, free handouts, lack of education and they are #1 in killing each other . Take the time to watch where the people live that commit the crimes for a month on the news, facts are facts. It's not because there are more blacks that live in Jackson , it's just that they do more pathetic crap. Talk about deadbeat daddy's,#1 in that category to. Young black girls #1 in having kids . So you see all that hard work by people like Dr. Martin L. King was simply for absolutely nothing, because if it was they wouldn't be a race of ignorance at there own hands. All that sacrificing these men and women did to ensure that black people get rights has only been used to get free things in life, your forefathers would turn over in there graves if they knew the way blacks are abusing the rights that they died for, get with the program as you have only disgrased your own race.

I agree with you on about 97% of that. Many of the crimes that happen are not reported in the news. There is still a great deal of our own "homegrown" crime, i still feel that many of the drug related crime is directly related to the people bringing the drugs in.

You made a lot of good points that many people will label as racism. While those points do not cover everyone of African American decent, it does cover many of the people living in certain areas in town. It is a problem that is sucking America's economy dry.

In regards to the drugs being brought in I agreethey are coming from Memphis, at least the bulk of it. Yes I agree there are blacks that are trying there best to make sure the cycle of this type of behaviour is stopped and there are wonderful people that are black and my best friend is black, so I hope it doesn't get tagged racist as this is not my attention at all . As you say some though will look at this as racist instead of just simpl yas it is, being the truth. I am trying to show how the blacks are behaving and not intentionally leaving out other groups such as whites,,Mexicans, and others purposely.

A very stimulating conversation, but I do believe we have veered off of the main topic of this thread.

I really would like to figure out how they had planned to play Russian Roulette with a semi-auto though, even if you had blanks it would singe your face to a rather painful degree.

Didn't Bruce Lee's son die from putting a weapon to his temple that had a blank in it?

I could not honestly tell you the answer to that without looking it up, but there is still a large amount of explosive force at the end of the barrel, if pressed tightly to the head, the resulting air pressure could very well rupture the head at the temple due to the structural weakness at that point.

Yes a big part of crime is blacks. But it sure is alot of white people running meth labs. I don't care the color of anyone's skin a bum is a bum. Some of you just speak racist BS. No surprise though!
