    Amazing how dense and short-sighted some individuals are. Some people are legit proud of this fact. It makes them feel "hard". Some people just don't grasp consequences.

    Did you make up that thread title? The "blood bath" quote wasn't even referencing this weekend specifically... It just made for a nice catchy headline. It makes it sound like people cant wait to start popping off their guns like fireworks just because it's the holiday weekend

    “If something doesn’t change, if we don’t get jobs for these kids, if we don’t change the economic situation, I’m worried that we could be looking at a blood bath"

    The shootings on the south side are bad, nobody is denying that... But articles like this dont exactly help Chicagos image.

    Martial law is the only way the SouthSide will turn around.

    I mean, yeah I made the thread title using a quote from the article. [​IMG]  

    I see what your saying but this article is centered around pending violence this weekend due to the holiday.

    cmon bro, you know exactly what i mean... you asked "how is this propaganda?" when you created your own headline that is misleading.
    violence is bad in the city, its memorial day weekend, cops anywhere are going to increase their manpower just in case.

    It's literally an article talkin about violence during this specific holiday weekend, the **** are you talkin about?

    It's just the title of a thread which was quoted from like the first paragraph of the story.

    I love Chicago.

    One of my favorite cities to pass through.

    But there is a problem there.

    This is fundamentally irresponsible and quite frankly, lazy. Nothing funny about that, even if it's factual.

    No, but the laughing emoji at the end of that seemed a little out of place, no?
