Good point... 2 or 3 cops in a school could help though.
Why not a platoon of Marines?

Of course... when Marines get bored they have a habit of playing with their pieces and end up shooting themselves and each other... give them one bullet each and put it in their pocket like Barney.

The "anti-profilers" certainly had a leg to stand on post 9/11 when we started searching 80 year old grandmothers at the airport, instead of targeting 20-40 year old men of Arabic descent.
You haven't been in an airport since 9-11, eh?

I think the root of the problem is overpopulation. Most big cities have similar problems- LA, Philly, Houston, Dallas, Seattle, Boston, Miami, etc. That's what happens when you cram millions of people into a few square miles.
It's their problem to solve.
Part of it is. Another part is lack of common decency, proper upbringing and a lack of personal responsibility. Yet among all that, there are still good and decent people that are grouped among the problem people. A few make it out of it.

So what do we do? Ban large population centers?

Gosh, Chicago is and has been a Democratic city.

You are expecting the GOP to take over Chicago when the GOP is 94 percent white? What does the GOP have to offer Chicago?

Oh yeah, that'll solve the problem.....
there is no Partisan Blame Game, the Democrats have been in charge of the Executive(Mayor) Office of Chicago and have presided over the Social & Economical Policy of Chicago since 1931.

Gosh... let me get this straight: the people have had a choice on who is mayor every four years and they keep on voting Democrat?

What are you talking about? I traveled many times immediately after 9/11, and what I saw one time in particular, was a Texan in a cowboy hat,someone who looked like a grandmother, and a military guy getting searched at the gate, while 3, 20 something year old men, that resembled those that we associate with being the threat, boarded without issue. I do not understand what you are saying. I have never witnessed any profiling at the airport. Believe me, I am all for it, but never have seen it.

Yep, and they have done the same thing in Detroit. How's that working for them?

My .38 doesn't just go off, I have to squeeze the trigger. I am aware of the dangers people pose as well, that's why I am armed at all times. I think we should ban people who pose a threat like we used to in this country. Insane asylums, federal prisons, work camps and chain gangs need to be revisited. Since the uproar includes the mentally deranged, not just the guns themselves, let's push the politicians to lock the nuts up. I would feel safer if I didn't have a "sexual predator" living next to me, which took 15 years for the police to inform me of. Remember, as many looneys as there are out there, there are a thousand times as many potential victims of their crimes. I refuse to be one of them in order to appease some convoluted sense of safety the hoplophobes have engineered.
Can't ban people.
Can't lock people up unless they commit a crime.
Can't institutionalize people unless they are a proven danger to themselves or others.

Since we can't do anything meaningful BEFORE they commit a gun crime, the only thing we can do is ban the guns they would use to commit those crimes.

Read the statement I just made about the sexual predator that is my neighbor. Can I tar and feather him and run him out of town on a rail? NOPE, but I sure can let him know I have a gun under my left armpit with his name on it.
You might want to be careful; threatening to shoot someone is probably illegal in your state.

No. If we ban large population centers then the criminals will move out into the smaller towns. I'd rather the criminals stay in the large urban centers where we can concentrate law enforcement efforts.

We should do what we can to help those law abiding citizens who may be trapped by circumstance- poverty, etc- to escape the urban centers.

Let the gang bangers & drug dealers & other hoodlums essentially prey on each other.

So that's your only answer? It's the Democrats?

So if they elect a Republican mayor that will magically solve all their problems?

Gee, now why haven't the people of Chicago thought of that?

And you don't think the minute our enemies figure out they're profiling a certain type that they won't start recruiting others who don't match that type?

See women suicide bombers in Israel.....

Our enemies are crazy, but they're not stupid.

We should start off with acknowledging you are full of cr@p and then move on to: the TSA's job is to keep terrorists from carrying explosives on airplanes and if I ran a organization and wanted to blow up an airplane, I would use whoever would most likely slip by the screeners including 80 year old grandmothers and pregnant women and I would not send in loud men wearing turbans.

And they like to have sex with little girls, which is why they keep getting in trouble in Okinawa....

And you're the chooch that questions Charlie Manson when a half eaten dead guy is found in Jeffrey Dahmers cell block.

But this is where you are full of sh*t. What did the shoe bomber look like? What did the underwear bomber look like? What did everyone on the planes on 9/11 look like? If there is anything an Islamic terrorist can't get their hands on, it's a blue haired grandmother. Your theory has some merit, but the execution would be impossible. I suppose that using your thinking, the terrorist organizations should solely use Arabic men, 20 to 40 years old because nobody suspects them because they appear too obvious.

Yes, I know that if the choosing of leaders is left in the wrong hands, democracy is the expressway to the destruction of civilization.
