    The driver will probably be charged with the window being shattered because they didn't follow the 10 point gangster commentary....1. Keep one carlength between you and the gansta....2. Look left right left before running from stray bullets 3. Count 123 before starting to move vehicle if trying to get car jacked 6. Scan steering wheels of parked lowriders with reefer smoke cloud in vehicle 10. Most important never make eye to eye contact!!!!

    You think it's funny but that's what they are going to say at his local level hearing.

    I think the bids for feeders go up every week. If I were him, I would take a geographical cure ASAP, since I have a strong allergy to lead. But alas, I'm not old enough to be in feeders.

    A warning letter is already in the mail.

    Had he been killed(God forbid), can you imagine if they still wrote him up? Why do I believe I am not the only one thinking this? 4 years ago, I wouldn't have. Sad.

    Curious also. In sleepers, we got sent to Cicero a few times then T.O. out to Palatine thru Cicero up to 290. Scary chit.

    O.T. as far as not being about UPS......but, we had a freeway sniper problem here shooting out the back windows of SUVs on the I-15 (going to Vegas road). Our Tahoe rear window was shot out, scared the hell out of us and really made us jump. That window has all the wires in it for the defroster.....what a mess. Thank goodness it was only a BB gun. Hundreds of folks were victims. Don't know it he/she was ever caught.

    Geez you big girl. That`s the Disneyland of areas. If you want scary run on down to Conrail at 63rd and State. In the good old days the crackheads would take target practice at you from the Cabrini Green towers.

    I've been to the yard off Cicero, I didn't think it looked that bad. I've been in worse areas than that in Indy.
    Even when I took a wrong turn pulling doubles and went a couple of miles through unknown neighborhoods, I didn't see anything that bad.
    That said, you could run into a nut anywhere. I know a guy whose package car took a bb in Westfield, not much there but rich folk and farmers.
