    That only applies if you're a Knight Templar. Otherwise, it was only a coincidence.

    It seems that the drug smugglers are leaving th bigger cities and moving to less densley populated areas on the interstates. It is definielty happening on I-85. I wouldn't be suprised if it was also happening on I-75.

    Well, I live in Chatt Town and my personal crime rate is 6 burglaries in 20 years statistics aside. One was a daylight home invasion that I have chronicled elsewhere. And I live in an upscale area on a busy street (Which probably has something to do with it)!

    Didn't make the top 10. Detroit and Memphis did, though.

    That's the .50 BMG isn't it?

    You might want to set up a .50 on your roof, that might be a deterrent...

    I think the high jobless rate and the horrible economy might have something to do with it.

    I'm not so sure. I've yet to meet a burglar, or any other robbing thieving turd that does his crime to support his family. And i've yet to meet one of these turds that would want a job if a job landed on his head. They rob cheat and steal to make an "easy" buck to support a drug habbit, or to buy new sneakers.

    I really dont think Chattanooga needs to have a crime problem. We are not over-run by turds. We have a small population of turds. In my opinion, the courts are failing us. Jail time just isnt handed out. I lost count of how many 5 and 6 time burglarers are just sentenced to "more probation". A quick, public review of our court dockets and dispositions reveals that almost all of the criminals are sentenced to probation. Even after 10+ violations of the same nature. It makes me ill. If we locked up these fools that are running over our city, we would solve alot of the problem.

    You are right in a lot of ways, at least in my opinion. But it makes people feel better to think that people are turning to crime because of joblessness or other factors. People want to believe that their fellow mankind is generally "good" and this is far from the truth. We know from God's Word that the heart of man is evil continually.

    you're so right, if more of these thugs were actually kept in jail things wouldn't be so bad.

Some people like 9mm...these people are stupid but if I were a ammo maker, I would come out with a 9.1mm because...you guessed it.....BIGGER HOLE. It would totally obsolete the stupid 9mm...until someone came out with 9.2mm that is. But if you're smart, you would anticipate the release of 9.2mm and leapfrog it with 9.3mm. I look forward to expanding the caliber wars in .01 increments....mostly because I have no life.

    Yes, just remember to use +p .500 because that is more effective than standard weak load .500....or just wait until .the S&W .501 comes out.
