I wonder where the news people were standing when they came up with that one? Maybe somewhere in Utah? Hell, quiet neighborhood, all I ever hear all day and night long are kids and adults both yelling their heads off, that stupid boom-bang-rap-crap, police, ambulance,(that's ambalance to you black peoples), and fire trucks. Occasionally I'll hear gun fire too. Oh, did I mention the crotch rockets? Quiet community, they must have sent deaf reporters here for that report.

Actually, it's been pretty quiet this year. In fact, I don't even carry my portable police scanner with me because it's too boring. Reading the Neighborhood News, Garfield had four shootings in one week. Maple? None.

Our problem started with the housing bubble. The government decided to give loans to the poor and minorities with no money down and no credit check. That action drew in all the lowlifes from the inner-city. They never had any intention of repaying these home loans, but it was a vacation that lasted several years.

Eventually, banks caught up with those foreclosures and sent the lowlifes back to Cleveland. As that took place, crime began to decrease. Those who left sometimes come back since they now know the area. But all in all, Maple Heights is back to a crime level of perhaps ten years ago.

Still a lot of work to do, but the key is to keep the federal government from ruining our neighborhoods. Get rid of Fair Housing laws and HUD buying and renting homes in the suburbs, and there will be quite a positive change in areas like Maple Heights.

Glad it has been quiet out there. I still think keeping homes empty has helped Maple Heights. Maple made it not worth it for slum lords to buy homes and rent them out. The problem with Maple started with renters, not with homeowners. The housing bubble only sped up the problem slumlords started.

There is big money to be made by moving people around. The big financial institutions made a killing with the housing bubble. It was the smaller institutions that fell. Big bankers want minorities and low-income people forced into neighborhoods. The other people then move. Bankers then print more money for the loans. What a hustle.

Follow the money. It's just like the food stamp hustle. Whites only blame the little guy, not the whites making the money.

There you go with that fictitious race thing again. The banks lost---at least those who complied with government demands. The removal of restrictions was due to minorities crying that the banks were prejudice because of their race. No truth to it, but the politicians in effort to keep their support base changed the rules of the game. That's what led us to the housing crash.

Landlords have been in Maple Heights and surrounding areas decades before you were even born. Never been a problem until the last ten years or so.

Of course years ago, landlords were able to rent to who they wanted to instead of who the government wanted them to. That's how problems like that start.

I'm going to have an apartment opening in a couple of months. I will have to endure the torment of sifting through minority applications because I can't refuse them if I don't like something about them. I have to rent to people I suspect will be a problem because saying "no" can land me in court getting sued for discrimination. Like most landlords, I don't have the time nor the money. I am forced by government to take a chance.

It's not fiction. A lot of very powerful whites made a lot of money due to the housing bubble. Money is first in U.S. politics.

The cops came around my house today 9-16-13 and told me at the intersection of my street, a repo man was laying there all beat up. He's in the hospital and doesn't know what happened. I'd guess he tried to repo a car and got caught by the guy who's behind on the payments. He'll be caught I'm sure and we'll then see the black man on the news.

You know......... I haven't heard a police call on the scanner about a repo in quite some time. A few years back, the dispatcher used to advise the cops when there was a repo about to take place. I haven't heard any of those calls for a while now that you post this.

I'm guessing the police got to busy to be a security guard for repos although they seem to have plenty of time now. Maybe they will reinstitute the policy. I hope they do.

I'm not denying that. What I am denying is the motive behind the housing bubble. The motive was to buy votes plain and simple. In fact, I remember an article years ago in our former Southeast Sun. It highlighted how blacks were complaining to politicians about not being able to get a home loan. So the article said, the politicians told the bank to make the bad loans, and if they go bad, the federal government will reimburse them the loss.

I didn't understand the article at the time. It was to vague. After the housing crash, I studied the subject intensely. What the Sun article was talking about was F & F. When I read the article, I assumed it was local only to find out later it was not just here, but nationwide.

I see where you get confused. The rich act as if they are doing things to benefit people out of the kindness of their hearts. Much like food stamps, it's all for profit. You only concentrate on the social aspects. You fail to follow the financials.

I'm not denying that blacks vote for those who want to give benefits and housing opportunities(the Democrats). All I am saying is there are some very rich whites making money off black votes. If there wasn't money to be made, they wouldn't care about the black vote. The programs wouldn't exist.

Politicians don't tell the rich anything. It's the other way around. The rich tell the politicians how it goes. If the politicians don't listen, they are out on their butts come re-election time. Politicians need funding. The rich provide it.

Industries spend a lot of money getting the right politicians in place. Obama is an industry guy. Look how many elite whites make money off his social programs.

DumBama is an industry guy? You must be kidding with that comment. I'm sure you're being sarcastic here.

DumBama is a party guy--a Socialist guy, but not an industry guy.

DumBama is the most anti-business President I've seen in my lifetime. His economic record is proof of that. For the last several years, Commie Care is the law passed that has most businesses frozen in their tracks. His attack on big oil, big coal, Gibson Guitars, Boeing, sun tan salons, cigarette shops, the American Indians, fuel suppliers, banks, credit card institutions, medical equipment and supply companies, auto dealerships, the trucking industry make it clear what this Communist is all about, and it sure as hell isn't industry.

He sure didn't do all of these things (and more) for elite whites, he did it for more control over the people. That's what Communists do.

In my industry, he had his minions create laws that will take a lot of truck drivers off of the road. Their latest was to create laws that prohibit a truck driver from smoking a cigarette in his very own truck. How does this benefit the elite white man? As of January of next year, any driver with a Body Mass Index of over 20% will lose his ability to work. How does that benefit the elite white man?

Democrats gain or stay in power by having the most government dependents as they can. So how do they gain more power? Create more government dependents.

I have posted numerous links to Obama making whites billions with his moves. Obamacare even makes elites millions because tax dollars go into their pockets.

You have yet to refute any of my points. From JP Morgan to Walmart, how is Obama hurting elite whites? They are making a killing.

You don't understand the difference between motive and circumstance. Circumstance is that the private industry makes money from legislation. Motive is why legislation was introduced or passed in the first place.

The motive is power. This is not to say that there are legislations passed that benefit individuals only. However there is a stark difference between buying votes and buying favors for personal or professional expediency. Those stories usually make the headlines.

The legislation that passes for power is very often disguised as something that's supposed to benefit the country. Again, Commie Care is a prime example, because once government is in charge of your healthcare, they eventually are in charge of everything that relates to healthcare. Monetary gain is secondary if not further down the list.

Another is public support. Sounds like a good thing, but the reality is that while people do make money, the more leverage is to buy votes and stay in power. Ask yourself: how did a failed President like DumBama get reelected for a second term? Hint: over half of the population in the United States now survives either partially or entirely on a government check or benefit.

For the love of god, I already showed how elite whites are getting rich off those who get government help. What is wrong with you?

JP Morgan. Walmart. Kraft. The list goes on. They all get rich off tax dollars. They all want government assistance to be on the table.

When government takes over something, tax dollars are spent. Who gets those tax dollars? Elite white people do. You can't possibly be this slow.

You keep concentrating on the half of the population on assistance. Concentrate on the small percentage making billions from that assistance.

Money buys the politicians. Money comes before power.

As far as crime is concerned ... the police aren't publicly reporting the crime .. doesn't mean crime doesn't exist. Residents must insist that crimes committed in their city be posted on the internet

Does anyone know who the victim was? Seems that fact is being hushed up .. in addition to information about other crime victims in Maple Heights.

I would question whether any of this is urban legend or not.

I have a police scanner and usually hear when something goes on. In general, the scanner has been pretty quiet lately. A fight here, domestic there, a child not listening to his or her parent(s) but it's not like it used to be.

During the housing bubble and burst, our police were so busy they frequently had to call in Garfield or Bedford for the overload. It used to be the city of sirens. I don't hear those sirens that much anymore.

Things have settled down quite a bit now that the banks caught up on their foreclosures and sent the black lowlifes back to Cleveland where they belong. Maple Heights never hid the crime that went on over here and I don't think they're hiding anything now. As long as government stays out of the housing business, I think things will stay this way.

I have a beautiful fireplace and patio in my backyard. It's gone to hell the last couple of years and it dawned on me why: I was scared to sit in my own backyard at nights.

This year, I worked on that patio and fireplace half of the summer. It's looking great now and I've had a dozen fires or so. I feel reasonably safe sitting in my backyard these days, and most times, I don't even bring my gun out with me. That's the way I should feel.
