    Drive by in Greektown

    Just another shooting that appears to have been a result of some kind of "deal" gone sideways, who knows.

    What's incredible is that this occured where there is LOTS of LE presence and is literally one (1) block away from police HQ.

    The "guys" who are left(over) in the D have been solving their arguments and disputes "ghetto" style for many decades. Since the population and economy has dwindled since the 80's, when stuff like this happens, it is very trans/apparent that most of the violent crime commited is now thug on-thug.

    Although the local media is too politically correct to report this glaring fact, I say, let them have at it. The smaller they make their own gene pool, the better.

    A town near my home was being plagued by a rash of ADW's and homicides due to drug transactions gone bad. When the police chief was speaking on the subject, she stated:
    "Overall, the homicides have been criminals taking out criminals, in reference to bad dope deals that have gone bad, and they have taken out their own competition. But that's all over the country, so Xxxxxx's not the only place that's occuring."

    As far as I'm concerned, when a drug dealer shoots/kills another drug dealer, it's not a crime, it's pest control...

    Couldnt agree more, when it's the rats eating the rats, I have no problem with it.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Greektown is in one of the 'safest' precincts (Precinct 1 if memory serves) in the city...more cops per square inch than anywhere in town, what with all the stadiums, casinos, and tourist draws in the area. Always have a lot of cadets in the area too. I just had my wife and 2 kids down at Pegasus for our anniversary dinner (okay, 3 of the 4 of us are black belts, and 2 of the 4 of us were armed). In January we go to Greektown, park, and walk the 8 or 10 blocks to Cobo Hall to go to the auto show.

    I refuse to stop doing things I like just because of the possiblilty of a criminal spoiling the fun.

    And heck drivebys happen in the great white north as well (the wealthy suburbs to the North, East and West of the city).

    Sabre - Hopefully, the 2 of you who are armed, are also 2 of the 3 of you who are black belts. Just curious, what "style" martial art to you train in?

    BTW, we have NOT had ONE drive by in our "wealthy" suburb's history. I wouldn't say it can't happen, just that it hasn't happened in 175 yrs.
