    No creepy ass crackers in this group:

    No cop wanna be's either. In fact, their motto could be "No Snitching":

    Asked Thursday about Man Up!, officials in the Police Department did not reply.

    Much easier to pretend stuff away like that.

    Mayor Nutter of Philly has a column in Time Mag this week about neighborhoods taking more responsibility.

    http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,21477Why is it that African-American males are so disproportionately both the victims and the perpetrators of violence, more often than not against one another? In Philadelphia, where I am mayor, 75% of our homicide victims are black men. About 80% of the people we arrest for homicide are black men. Black men across the country are killing one another, yet that epidemic is rarely part of any national conversation."

    When Aurora happened, when Tucson happened and certainly when Newtown happened, we as a country launched a heartfelt conversation about gun violence, gun safety and the use of weapons. We lurch from tragedy to tragedy to tragedy, trying to figure out what to do along the way.

    In the meantime, 32 Americans are killed by gun violence every day, on average, a disproportionate number of whom are black men. That's apparently not breaking news. With each death, the networks aren't interrupting game shows or soap operas to give you that information. We get lulled back into complacency and somehow live with the fact that we have a Newtown every day in America. And a disproportionate number of those dying are black men. That cannot be acceptable in the United States of America.

    So, a kid is murdered for no reason other than a confrontation which we all belive was started based in part by the color of his skin and some idiot who was allowed to have a carry permit. And a bunch of closet or not so closet racists on this site get their rocks off showing that black people are usually shot by other black people.

    It didn't begin or middle well, either.

    Give Boom credit. He found a way to get his latest trolling in the mix after the previous threads were nuked.

    Well, the Times knows its readership. A good number of them have probably bought into up-and-coming Brooklyn neighborhoods and stories like this (Your real estate values aren't going down!) are catnip.
