What do you think is the most ghetto/violent/dangerous city in America? And why?
A list? Here's mine:
1.) Detroit, Mi 2.) Gary, In 3.) Camden, NJ 4.) East St. Louis, Il 5.) Flint, Mi 6.) Atlanta, Ga 7.) New Orleans, La 8.) Memphis, Tn 9.) Chicago, Il 10.) Milwaukee, Wi 11.) Cleveland, Oh 12.)

Chester, Pa 23.) Newburgh, NY 24.) Houston, Tx 25.) St. Louis, Mo
I usually post a longer, more-thorough list, but I grew tired of people bitching about it, so I decided to actually write a new one right now. Please feel free to contribute your opinions on which city/area you think is the worst in the U.S. and to share some stories about why you feel this way or personal experiences from the city.
Btw, I am from and live in Arizona, currently, just outside of Phoenix, in what is probably the only ghetto of what is an overall really nice city. Also, I am in my 30s and have tried to stay out of trouble and away from bad parts of town, so I don't have many stories to share. However, it would be cool to get to read some thoughts and opinions on the gehtto cities in America and some personal stories about them.
And here is the list of ghetto/violent cities that I usually use:
1.) Detroit, Pontiac, Saginaw, & Flint, Mi 2.) Gary, Indianapolis, & East Chicago, In 3.) Camden, Patterson, Newark, Trenton, & East Orange, NJ 4.) Chicago, Rockford, & East St. Louis, Il 5.) Memphis, Tn 6.) Oakland, Stockton, Fresno, & Richmond, Ca 7.) St. Louis, & Kansas City, Mo 8.) New Orleans, & Baton Rouge, La 9.) Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dayton, Akron, & Youngstown, Oh 10.) Baltimore, Md 11.) Washington D.C. 12.) Philadelphia, & Chester, Pa 13.) Birmingham, Mobile, & Prichard, Al 14.) Jackson, Ms 15.) Little Rock, Pine Bluff, & West Memphis, Ar 16.) Atlanta, Ga 17.) Houston, & Dallas, Tx 18.) Wilmington, De 19.) Oklahoma City, & Tulsa Ok 20.) Bridgeport, & New Haven, Ct 21.) Milwaukee, Wi 22.) Albuquerque, NM 23.) Omaha, Ne 24.) Topeka, & Wichita, Ks 25.) Phoenix, & Tucson, Az

>>607038418 St Louis is worse than Houston bro, houston is segregated very well, Southwest is an open air zoo featuring a huge chimp exhibit and one neighborhood north of downtown is complete shit but much of the rest is perdy gud
Met a guy who lived in Newark during the 80s. A family member of his fucked up somehow and a couple goons showed up at a family party and shot it up. The guy got shot 11 times with a tech nine, showed me all the bullet marks.
>>607039139 No, Scottsdale, near 68th Street and Thomas. It's not like it's even a bad part of town, more like, a bad block. There's a Circle K on 68th St. just north of Thomas that is seriously fucking ghetto. And the particular block I live near is pretty fucking ghetto, and I'm literally one of the only white people who live on it.
I am originally from Chandler, born and raised, then I lived in Payson for many years, then back to Chandler for a few months, then to east Mesa for a few months, then had to move somewhere in a hurry and the landlord/owner of the place where I'm currently living was looking for a tenant at the time and let me move in without running my credit or background, so I moved in here and have been paying $560/month for the past years or so.
Where exactly are you from/do you live now? And have you been to any of the bad parts of Phoenix? If so, where? And what do you think of them? Does Phoenix have some legitimately bad/dangerous areas?

>>607039399 Since you mention Albuquerque, here are some from a previous thread posted bout the city from a previous thread (not mine):
- I live and work in Albuquerque as a bouncer and a security guard in the south valley.

Actors are all generally pretty cool. I was up at val kilmers house in santa fe for a party and hes weird but cool. Bryan cranston would bring us breakfast burritos in the AM. Harrison ford and daniel craig were cool, met them doing cowboys and aliens.
Tommy lee jones is a drama queen pos.and the cap america guy is an asshole. I lived in Milwaukee for a bit and it was alright, a little worse than abq. Phoenix is a suburb piece of cake. Its nice there.
Yeah I think Abq is quite a biy worse off. They don't talk about it as much but south of I40 isnt okay to be after dark.
Never met Tapia, but I boxed at that same gym for awhile. J. Voight was a cool dude, he sat next to me at tuscanos downtown. Sam jackson was a serious asshole. We ran into him in old town and he told us to get the fuck out of his way. My wife and I were sitting in the grass. Grade A douche. My wife's friend called him a trash ass nigger. I laughed.
People get kidnapped out of town and there's a pretty serious problem with human traffickers. Also if you dont lock your shit up tight your truck will be stolen. Will be.
At about 3am the other night some asshole started banging on my door yelling about needing change for the bus. Ofc my wife is like "go do something about it"
I opened the door and this asshole tried to stab me with a little insulin needle. I had the baby monitor in my hand and i hit him in the face with it six or seven times before it broke apart. I didnt even make the conscious thought to do it, just happened. Took APD almost 45 minutes to show up.
East Orange NJ is rough but nothing terrible. As a white 20 year old girl I stick out when I go there but they have a good ass diner. Also Newark, depends where you are. I drive around late at night sometimes (for late night diner yumyums, I like diners) and it's pretty barren. Certain neighborhoods I don't fux with tho
Irvington and Hillside NJ is fucking rough. Camden obvs.
>>607039270 I have not been there, nor to any part of Wisconsin, but people have mentioned in previous threads that Milwaukee is no joke and that there are parts of the city that was as hardcore and dangerous as Chicago and Detroit. It's also been mentioned that the city is segregated and that much of the population is still highly racist.
Do you think Milwaukee is comparable to Detroit, Flint, Cleveland, Chicago, East St. Louis, Gary, etc.? And where do you live now?
>>607039285 Are you from/do you live in Chicago now? If so, are there any shootings there these days? And do you think Chicago is worse than Detroit?
>>607039729 Have you lived in both Houston and St. Louis? What about any other major ghetto areas to compare them to? And where do you live now?
USA is a shithole. I've lived in nearly every state in my 40 years, and the country is a cultural wasteland, because its values are all shit values. It even calls itself a christfag nation, when these values are in direct opposition to what they claim makes them christfags, and fittingly likes to think of itself as somehow superior by some mysterious metric because of this, again, totally christlike, and totally ethically unsupportable.
>>607040743 Are you white? Seriously? If you are actually a white female, it would seem like you would be a real rarity in any place like Camden. From what people have mentioned in previous threads, Camden is no place for a white person, especially, if you're from another area. People have claimed that Camden is one of the worst cities in America, and have referred to it as the Detroit of the East Coast.
Have you been to Camden at night? And if so, as pretty much everyone from/familiar with the city claims, is Camden, by far, the scariest city in New Jersey?
>>607041033 If you're not actually trolling, what city/area would you say is the worst/scariest you've been to? And where do you live now?
Also, have you been robbed, assaulted/attacked or had any scary shit happen to you in your travels?
Also, just out of curiosity, seeing as it seems to be a little-known city to most people, but also seems to be one of the most-violent and dangerous cities in the U.S., have you been to East St. Louis? And if so, what are your thoughts on the place?
> Pic related: A view of East St. Louis, Illinois, that included the caption: "A thin line separates civilization and barbarism... just beyond the horizon rests 98% black East St. Louis."
>>607040743 And since you mentioned Camden, here's a re-write I did of a story someone posted in a previous thread about getting beaten up in Camden, NJ.
Basically, the story went something like this:
> Mexican kid/guy, about 18, 6'2'' and 200 lbs, fairly muscular, goes to stay with grandmother in Camden > been there for a few days, decides to walk to the store for grandmother, by himself > apparently, a very bad idea > walks inside store, big, older white guy clerk immediately says that he should not be there, that it's not safe for him > Mexican kid/guy walks out of the store after making purchase and is encountered by 3 large, black males walking down the sidewalk > one of the black guys says that one of them dropped their bag of dope and that they saw him pick it up and take it > Mexican kid/guy says he is legitimately frightened, as the 3 black males are huge and don't appear to be fucking around > Mexican kid/guy nervously says that he did not take their drugs and that he did not want any trouble > the 3 black males decide that he deserves to get violently beaten up, so they immediately start to do so > Mexican kid/guy says that the 3 black males all start punching him violently and he falls to the ground and is getting pummeled > while on the ground, one of the black males starts grabbing his fingers and literally starts breaking them, he ends up with 3 fingers broken > while this beating is happening, a cop car pulls up and blares his siren, the 3 black males start walking away, Mexican kid/guy feels like crying, because he is so happy > cop pulls away without even getting out of his car > apparently, in Camden, someone getting jumped by 3 guys was not important enough for the cop to get out of his car and check on the victim
> after that experience, the Mexican kid/guy stated that he did not go out in Camden again before moving back home
> Pic related: A rooftop view in Camden, New Jersey
Yeah I'm a suburban white girl in nyc but I'm from a suburb deeper in jerz. Therefore I'm always going back and forth. You know the into to the sopranos? That's my train commute. Anyways, Camden is far as fuck by Philly and I've never actually been there. I've heard it's awful tho. There's a big venue there that hosts a lot of big artists/festivals like warped, so those are the only times people like me really get a glimpse of it.
Look up pics... it looks shitty... Newark doesn't look like that at all because it used to be a big functioning city before the riots.
>>607040743 >>607041908 The guy who originally posted the story that I posted here >>607041908 told it in a better fashion than I just did; but, I'm sure you get the gist of what happened.
As for Camden being a really shitty place, in the same thread that the guy shared the story about getting jumped, another person also posted, a white kid (around 16-17, iIrc), and told a story about having gotten lost after driving his parents car home from a concert and ending up in Camden. I don't recall the specifics, but I think he was at a stop sign/stoplight and just got ambushed by someone on the street who smashed through his side window and dragged him out of the car. Ultimately, he said that he ended up getting curbed-stomped and almost died, literally. He said that the only thing that saved his life was some foreign shop-owner running outside with a shotgun and screaming at the people trying to beat him to death. And this happened because he was a white kid driving a nice car through their neighborhood.
I hadn't realized it, but based on lots of posts in previous threads, New Jersey apparently has several absolutely terrible cities in it. Besides Camden, people have claimed that Patterson, East Orange, Trenton, Newark, and Jersey City are all ghetto cities with rampant crime and truly dangerous areas. Overall, though, it seems as though almost everyone agrees that Camden is the worst city in NJ; and, likely, the most-dangerous/fucked-up city on the East Coast. People have compared Camden to a little Detroit. And many people have stated the same thing about Flint, Gary, and East St. Louis.
So, is anyone looking to post some stories tonight??
What's funny about it, is that Milwaukee is one of these remaining quintessential Rust Belt old industrial towns that grew fast, established entrenched power hierarchies among the heavily segregated & rigid immigrant cultures that supplied the workers, and when you go there, the food is german in the german parts, polish in the polish parts, italian in the italian parts, and horrible in the black parts. Places are either shitty and wrecked, or they're owned by a supremely wealthy board of corporate investors and are restored to look imposing and turn of the century corporate to modern corporate. The stink of the brewery is there, the pollution of the rail yards & old abandoned shipping and heavy industries in the swamp-turned valley. Poverty is everywhere in between, crime is in plain sight, the neighborhoods vary from slummy to very fucking slummy, with a few streets of multi million dollar estates on the waterfront. HOWEVER, the city of Madison is only about an hour and a half straight west down the highway, and Madison is the polar opposite of Milwaukee. It's the state capital, the big biotech & medical research university is there, there are young people from everywhere and culture and good food, crime is low, art and music flourish. Natually, it's full of young people and famous for containing nearly all our liberals.
But here's the thing. Iin 37 years of living right between them, most of my friends hail from one or the other. ...but I've never once in all these years met anyone, from Milwaukee, that goes to Madison, and only a handful of people from Madison that have ever been to Milwaukee. Even mention the name of the other city, and people get a strange look on their face, like they only vaguely remember of hearing that such a city exists once upon a time, ages ago. People just do not do it.
Also, the rest of the state is quite beautiful, very hilly, and full of dense forests and endless rivers and lakes.
>>607041957 I have not been anywhere on the East Coast (I am from Arizona, but I did actually live in the Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida, area for about 5 years recently, and that's the furthest east I've been), but after starting several of these threads, pretty much everyone seems to agree that Camden is legitimately worse and scarier than any city in New York, or anywhere on the East Coast, for that matter. A few people have claimed that Philadelphia and Chester, Pa, are as bad as/possibly worse than Camden, but they have been in the minority. Most people familiar with Camden and other ghetto cities on the East Coast pretty much all seem to agree that Camden is as hardcore and gangster as it gets in America. Like I mentioned before, people have described it as being like the Detroit of the East Coast. And pretty much everyone agrees that the bad parts of Detroit are truly scary and really fucking dangerous.
I really have no stories.. I've seen a lot of crackheads in Newark and EO which is always a sad sight... But no one really gives me trouble.
You'd be surprised... Black people from the ghettos are generally intrigued/weary/afraid of white people, especially white females because our lives are put on pedestals. I've only ever gotten cat calls, a lot, and I do feel uncomfortable, and get a lot of looks, don't get me wrong... I just don't have any juicy stories lol
>>607041782 Yep, I've lived in St Louis and a number of times feeling adventurous I dragged a couple friends over to the east side of the river. We were robbed every time, but you know going over, to just bring a 20, so they appreciate getting something out of you and don't just get pissed and shoot you, but don't clean you out either. St Louis was fun for about the first month. Some pretty sketchy parts, but downtown and by the landing was always fun, and depending on where you go, it's dumpy, but relatively safe dumpy. Fucked a lot of girls there. Bored girls with low expectations in life are easy to pick up...
The most dangerous guys were actually the white guys that would travel with the black gangs, because they always had something to prove, and being white yourself makes you the target. I stayed about a year too long on account of some girl. Used to fuck her in the sculpture park out by crestwood.
I'm 20. I absolutely do fucking not have any pictures of Brownsville and never plan on going there... Unlike Camden (which is severely overgrown and dilapidated), Brownsville is absolutely barren. No plants, trees, anything. Pretty much like, 80% of Brownsville is govt housing projects, people shitting and pissing in the hallways, shootings, power shortages etc... horrible.
The guy from the Instagram : Humans of New York went there about 2 months ago and took some powerful photos with crazy stories if you're interested. I have 2 black guy friends from Canarsie Brooklyn (which is rough) who say that Brownsville isn't safe for anyone and they try to avoid it at all costs.
>>607042116 I used to usually have D.C. on the list, and Baltimore, two cities that are definitely deserving of being on the list, but I wrote a new list just as I started this thread and was trying to hurry up and get it finished, as I hate typing.
As for D.C., though, many people have claimed that the city has been gentrified in recent years and that it is nowhere near as dangerous and violent as it was during the crack epidemic days in the '80s and '90s. However, people have mentioned in previous threads that there are still some really bad areas in D.C., maybe, in the southeast part of it?
Btw, have you been to Baltimore? If so, which is worse, D.C. or Baltimore?
>>607042476 I was being sarcastic about the shootings. People have claimed that the majority of the city is actually nice and that the shootings and crime are almost entirely gang members shooting and killing each other and sometimes hitting some innocent citizens during their shooting sprees that seem to have become part of the culture in Chicago. Which means that the bad parts of Chicago (Englewood has been mentioned?) must be really fucking bad, to account for so many fucking shootings.
Btw, have you been to Detroit? Flint? Milwaukee? Cleveland? East St. Louis? Or Gary? And if so, which is the worst/scariest?
>>607042811 >>607043252 I'm assuming that both of these post are you. And you say that you've gotten cat calls, so you have me curious what you look like. Are you down to post a picture of yourself? If not, no problem. I just wanted to at least ask.
And I don't have an Instagram account (yes, seriously), but you have me intrigued to see some of the pictures you referred to, so I want to check that out.
>>607043141 Would you say that East St. Louis, Illinois, is worse than even the worst parts of St. Louis, Missouri? As in, noticeably worse/scarier/more-violent?
>>607042811 Do you think these Connecticut cities are legitimately bad on a level comparable to places like Camden, Philly, Trenton, Brooklyn, Wilmington, etc.?
And have you been to The Steve Wilkos Show?
>>607043326 Why do you say this? Please elaborate on this, as I'm curious why you believe this. I've seen Louisville featured on The First 48 several times, so I have no doubt that it has some bad parts and violent crime problems. However, it would be nice to get to read about some firsthand experiences.
Also, are you the same guy who has posted in previous threads about Louisville? Mentioning how there is a huge underground drug market there and serious issues with the crime and violence that come along with that type of culture? If so, please do post and tell more about what it's like there in Louisville.
Shit I have had happen to me in St. Louis County >shot at on two separate occasions, wrong place wrong time >threatened a million times >sucker punched and I pulled my gun so they ran away >had a dude try to sell me brick weed from his shoe
Wait, I just realized that you stated that Kansas City is tame as fuck compared to ESL, as in, Illinois, not STL in Missouri. Have you been to Kansas City and St. Louis, Mo, and East St. Louis, Il? And if so, which city is the worst?
Also, isn't there still a legitimate mob presence in Kansas City? And some really rough ghettos there? I have not been to KC, but I've read posts in previous threads and also seen it featured on episodes of The First 48, so I don't doubt that it's got some seriously scary/dangerous/violent parts.
>>607044416 I had no idea that Saginaw was a rough place before starting these threads on here. Having started several threads like this, though, Saginaw has been mentioned many times, along with Pontiac, and, of course, Flint, so it definitely gets recognized as being a rough place. However, worse than Detroit? Are you sure about that?
>>607044577 East St. Louis, MO. Sorry, should have clarified. Honestly dude, there are some streets, like The Paseao, and neighborhoods that you should stay out of after dark. No more so that any other city of comparable size though. And about the Mob, I don't know anything about that.
>>607044374 Still, I repeatedly braved that, and I wouldn't step foot in several large parts of Milwaukee without fully expecting to be shot on sight purely for being "several shades too light", as a couple of my bleck friends would say. ...one of whom is dead, and the other is a fucking buddhist hippie, who's been shot numerous times over the years anyway merely because fairly often, people just drive around shooting at pedestrians for sport. Seems its usually blacks, sometimes latinos, and sometimes the irish, usually not the italians and almost never the Krauts. The germans are just workers, and mostly live out of town in the neighboring towns & forests.
Shit is divided as fuck. It's like Gangs Of NY over there.
>>607038418 I live in Ohio, and I go to a good amount of sports games in downtown Cleveland. Lemme tell you, you do not want to be walking to your car after the game at night. If you stay with the other mildly drunk white people in the nice parts of downtown, you're normally fine. You can tell where the city starts to go to shit; if you end up in one of those alleys, you're fucked. >pic related: where things go to shit
>>607044773 I appreciate the effort, but I've got to admit, I'm skeptical about that actually being you. Most people would not save a picture of themself and title it with their own name. Nonetheless, I do appreciate you replying and contributing to the thread.
>>607044454 I'm going to assume that you have also been to East St. Louis, Il? If so, what are your thoughts on ESL? Is it legitimately worse than even the worst parts of St. Louis?
Also, what kind of gum do you carry? Do you have a picture of it? Were you legitimately prepared/going to shoot the guy who stole on you? And have you pulled it on someone on other occasions? If so, are you down to share some stories?
>>607043044 That's funny you mentioned New Britain. I'm from a very rural area in nj and I've only been to a handful of cities, New Britain being one of them. I was young at the time (14?) and was visiting a family friend. I went down the street to the skate park with my buddy and we could've swore we heard a gun shot, which freaked us the fuck out since this was our first time ever out in a city by ourselves. This was broad daylight, mind you.
>>607045143 Since you mentioned Cleveland, here's a story that was posted about an experience in Cleveland in a previous thread:
cleveland? fuck it
>>go to see a concert in cleveland >>never been to cleveland should be fun >>get together with clan of friend and load up in a big ass navigator >>all skater bros etc. >>get into town a day early to see the city fuck off skate etc. >>later that nig...
oh wait allow me to tell you a secret about ol clevecityburgville easily the dirtiest city this side of the 1st world part of the equator. holy fuck people throw shit in a garbage can please
anyhow >>later that night we split off >>couples >>me and the current gf head off skating >>she is kinda wore out so she is walking with her board as I skate back and forth >>really just cruising seeing the city >>i would skate ahead a bit and wait for her to catch up >>i have a thing about night skating >>lub mah night skates >>anyhoo skate ahead and turn around >>strange city etc trying to keep an eye on her >>fucking bum out of an alley >>lunges out grabs her and pulls her into an alley >>didn't see me i guess? >>crazy endorphins >>mad adrenaline >>i all of a sudden was positive I was bulletproof >>run into the alley without thinking or commanding my body to >>he has his back to me as I get close she kicks him away >>he takes two steps back and >>catches the heaviest set of independent trucks they ever made >>directly to the side of the head >>I even spun my foot as I swung >>like full tilt >>the noise >>the blood >>he flies into the brick wall and collapses >>no movement >>i'm pretty sure I just collapsed this guys skull >>grab gf >>bounce >>meet back at the hotel with the group never told anyone >>we still haven't talked about it to this day tbh >>no idea what happened to him but i'll assume he wasn't wearing his life alert so probably kill

>>607039130 >4.) Chicago, Rockford, & East St. Louis, Il East St. Louis is in the southwest corner of Illinois, and Chicago and Rockford are in the northeast. East St. Louis is a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, for fucks sake. This is not one giant metropolitan region. They're as unrelated as Los Angeles and Tucson
>>607045495 IMO, that's a very nice gun to be carrying on you. I am not familiar with the Gen 2 models, but I know that back in the day (keep in mind, I'm almost 40 now), the Glock 17 meant that the magazine held 17 rounds, and that you could get a Plus 2 extender and have 19 rounds, plus 1 more in the chamber, if you chose to carry that way (personally, I did not like to carry with one in the chamber, but I do understand how that can actually be of life-saving benefit in the right situation). How many rounds does your Gen 2 Glock 17 hold?
Also, how difficult is it go get a license to carry in Missouri? I am from and live in Arizona, which has some of the most-relaxed gun laws in the country. Nowadays, as long as you are of age (21 now, I think) and don't have a felony or DV conviction, in Arizona, you can not only buy and carry a gun, but you can conceal it, even on your body, without any sort of permit whatsoever. For law-abiding citizens, this is a very nice thing, as it helps you to have the means and opportunity to carry personal protection at all times.
> Pic related: A Taurus PT 92 9MM that I recently bought.
Yes, I know people are going to think it's ugly, but I got it, along with five 15-round mags, a half-box of shells, and a hard plastic case, for $280.
>>607045631 >>607046355 Please see this post here >>607039130 which is the list of cities that I usually use for this thread. It includes Oakland, Stockton, Fresno, & Richmond.
I've also included/mentioned Los Angeles, Compton, Watts, San Diego, Long Beach, San Jose, Modesto and San Francisco.
Btw, I've seen 'Gang Wars: Oakland' and part 2, so I have no doubt that Oakland, and several other Bay Area cities, are seriously hardcore and violent. What do you think is the most-dangerous/violent city in the Bay Area? Is it Oakland? Stockton? Richmond? Fresno? Vallejo? And what do you think is the most-dangerous/violent city in California? Is it one of the Bay Area cities? LA? Watts? Long Beach? Or where?
>>607046442 Well, if that was actually you in that picture you uploaded (which I saved, btw, sorry), you're an attractive girl and you look like you're a nice person, so thanks for being willing to share that, even if it was only briefly. And thanks for contributing to the thread and letting me know about the IG/Tumblr guy with the Brownsville ghetto pictures. Much appreciated, Jersey Girl!
The solution: 1. Reintroduce the pillory, stocks, tarring+feathering, etc 2. Publicly strip the convicted violent criminals down to their birthday suits, shave every hair on their bodies, and put them on above devices in humiliating positions. Public shaming and humiliation might work for some of them.
>>607046509 In case you could not tell, I just included cities from the same state together in the same spot on the list. I wasn't trying to make them all precisely listed based on geographical location. I suck at typing and it was frustrating to compose the list and then eventually add to it several times, so I was happy with the result.

>>607038418 To try to bump the thread, here's a story that was posted in a recent thread by a guy from Alabama (not my story):
More like pic related :) >At home while roommates are at work. >Don't own car so it looks like no one is home. >Hear glass break from side door directly across from my room. >thatsnotthecats.mp4 >Grab shotty off the wall and swing my door open, leveling shotgun as an arm has gone through window on door. >Fire off a round into door and watch hand explode and arm disappear out the door. >Look out front window to see guy running through next door neighbor's yard and into woods. >First time ever shooting someone and adrenaline is wearing off, look back in kitchen were fingers are and throw up.
Got my roommate to come home from work early and called the cops. Guy must have toughed it out or bled out at someone's house, cause he never showed up at a hospital.
We changed the doors the next day to steel doors with double locks (have to use key inside to lock and unlock the doors so you cant break a window and unlock the door. Bars on all windows now. And this is just inside the house, fuck the shit I deal with out and about just going to the damn gas station to buy cigarettes.
The cops here are used to shootings and to be truthful, a white guy shooting a black guy breaking into your house they don't give a shit about. More of a "good job" from them.
Guy must have not been in a gang or anything, no one ever came looking for us.
For some reason I feel like the repercussions for shooting someones limb off would be a bit more troublesome than that.
>"Officer, I thought I saw a knife/bat/crowbar and feared for my safety should he have made it inside the house." Done.
>is guy who shot dude's hand. Actually I asked the cops about shooting him and they told me I couldn't shoot him on my doorstep through the door. Then he took his badge off and said, "Drag the body inside" and put his badge back on.
I'm the guy that lives in Hueytown, same dude. The police were actually pretty chill about it, like I said, white dude shooting a black dude breaking in. For once cop racism works for me lol. But no, they couldn't do fingerprints on them, and aren't gonna waste the money on DNA testing for "petty" crime. Dude's now missing a hand, he ain't gonna be robbing shit now if he is still alive somewhere.
Remington 887 12 gauge 4+1 loaded. I don't know the price, friend got it at one the gun shows at the BJCC as a Christmas present, but they retail at 550-600. It's a damn good shotgun to me. Same friend has a .40 1911(Predator, I think) that I'm in love with but can't find one for less that $400. I'm not the one to talk guns with, might want to check /k/ for that, or are they just psychos?
>>607048053 >>607048209 And here's a screencap of a story about a guy who drove from Indian to the airport in Chicago and drove through Gary, Indiana, and ended up having cars block the road and try to ambush him while pointing a shotgun at him.

gerfag here i dont get it americans always claim to be the best nation but reading this thread it seems that there are whole areas that are not safe for anybody in like every major city and many smaller ones how can like 10-20% of your citizens have so little perspective and opportunity that randomly shooting/robbing/raping etc are their choice of life? isnt it possibly to just move to a rural area and live a normal life?
>>607048510 Because amerifats are brainwashed as youths into thinking america is number one, and has never lost a war. Truth is, the world sees them as the 'special' fat kid at school, or war mongering blank slates that only pick on 3rd world countries. Just take a look at all the "Whats wrong with my dick, balls, rash, mouth" threads on /b/. There public systems suck.
>>607048826 but its not the same you can drive through the worst part of germany at any time and nothting will happen to you you can walk through there and the worst thing that happens is someone will steal your cellphone the level of violence in america is astonishing you have like 10000 murders each year although your sentences are diabolic i just dont get it
>>607048510 This. Last fall I went to Berlin (capitol of Germany) to party for a weekend. I was drunk as fuck all around the city, and i felt as safe as ever even in the middle of the night. Nobody bothered me, not even in kreutzberg(?) where most people I met told me not to go..
>>607049186 kreutzberg isnt the worst part of berlin it becomes a hipster ground but its still rough for german standarts but thats my point you never have to be afraid to get killed simply for being somewhere at any time
>>607049281 that just makes it worse gangs are a contruct i dont get its not just throwing your life away its throwing your life away for other people in hope that you can benefit off of them even though they have nothing to offer the level of despair you need to be in a gang is just crazy
>>607048859 OP here, I was born and raised in America (in the state of Arizona, to be precise) and I am proud and grateful to be from and live in this country, but I can't really dispute what you stated in this post. Our youth have been corrupted by the fucking awful, pathetic, classless pieces of trash that our country has made in to celebrities (i.e. people like the whore Kardashians, Miley Cyrus, Lil' Wayne, etc.) and they see this type of despicable, embarrassing behavior as not only acceptable, but as inspiring and motivating, since they see the attention and financial success that these fucking dirtbags are able to achieve. Personally, people like the celebrities I mentioned, along with many of our scumbag athlete celebrities, make me ashamed to be form the same country that they are achieving this wealth and fame in.
>>607048510 And as far America being a nice, safe place, there are certainly many nice cities throughout the country, but we have ghettos here that are way fucking worse than a country with so much wealth and technology and wherewithal to support and help people should have. And, seriously, the crime and violence in places like Detroit, Camden, Chicago, Memphis, New Orleans, Oakland, Los Angeles are truly fucking awful and scary. The drug deals, gang bangers and desperate people in these cities are straight killers and they are ruining what should be a genuinely great country.

>>607049369 Finally, someone else mentions Detroit. Are you from there or do you live there now? And if so, have you been to Flint? If so, which is worse, Detroit or Flint? What about Pontiac or Saginaw?
Also, tell us some stories about the D'!

>>607050100 I used to usually include Miami on the list in the OP (after seeing it featured on The First 48 so many times - and is the same reason why I came to realize that Memphis is a really dangerous city), and I've also included Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa/St. Petersburg (the only other place I've lived besides Arizona), and someone mentioned Opa-locka as being really bad and possibly the most-dangerous city in Florida. Someone also mentioned Tallahassee as starting to become a rough area.
Why did you decide to mention Jacksonville? Are you from there/do you live there now? And do you have some stories to share?
>>607050707 You really think it's worse/more-dangerous/violent than Miami/Opa-locka? And Orlando? Were there parts of the city that you were scared/nervous to be in? And have you lived in any other rough cities? If so, where? And how did it compare to Jacksonville?
