    Friends held up at gun point in thier house

    A couple of my friends have a house near the University of Akron. Their house is divided into 2 sections, 2 different apartments. My friends live in the section with the door facing the street, the other door is in the rear and faces the driveway. During the night 2 black men break into the rear apartment and hold 3 guys at gun point and take EVERYTHING in their place that has any value-including 3 computers. They say if the cops are called they will come back and kill them all. They filed a report and moved out the next day. What a nice college neighborhood no? Especially for my friend who still lives in the other side of the house. The thing that really scared me is when he told me about this I said that's pretty ballsy, considering in Ohio you can legally kill a man if he breaks inside your home in a threatening manner. My friend didn't even know, in fact he didn't believe me when I told him that. This is area is so prime for crimes like this, because most criminals know college students aren't going to be armed and have no way to defend themselves. I told him he should have a gun in that house, he just kind of laughed it off like I was crazy- which really made me think. Maybe next time the occupants of the house won't be so lucky. How bad does it have to get before people will protect themselves?

    I don't know if any of you have college areas like this, but I'm glad I don't live near campus anymore.

    Then I saw a little african boy sleeping, and I thought...that is little Okeke. he is tired from herding all the goats and the big goat got away today - Rock

    Why the need to point out that they are black men?

    White men don't commint any crimes? I guess you've never watched COPS where the majority of the men who break the law are white.

    You're making all of the TBone4Evas on this site look bad.

    I knew that was coming. I never said white people don't commit crimes. The majority of the crime in that area is minority caused, and there are many reasons for that. Most of the people in that community either go to the university, or sell drugs or commit other crimes to make money. I've been going to school there for a while, and have lived in that area also. I wouldn't have made a comment like that if I couldn't back it up. It's sad that minorities are in the situations they are in some communities, but I will not deny those situations.

    Even newspapers will report the race of the criminals. If someone broke into your house and they were black, are we to assume that you wouldn't tell the police what race they were?

    Damn it TripleP, you would put my name in something right when I'm in the middle of sticking these crackas up in their house and..........Hold on....... *Stand right there bitch while I finish replying to my WBB homies and stop acting like you scared, you know that's what we black people were put on this earth to rob you.*

    Anyway, Hahn and Gyno made good points. I didn't see anything wrong in Hahn's post. If Hahn had just said men, I would have assumed he meant "white" men unless otherwise stated.

    Tank: The N word thing is a huge double standard, but at the same it's the media that makes it seem like we all say that. At least, I don't say it. People who know me call me either Tyrone, Ty, or T-Bone. People who don't know me usually call me champ, dawg, or big man. That reminds me, I've been wanting to get that book on this topic by Randall Kennedy, a black Harvard professor. It's titled, "N*****: The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word."
    Kennedy traces the word's history in literature, song, film, politics, sports, everyday speech, and the courtroom. He also discusses its plastic, contradictory, and volatile place in contemporary American society. Should it be eradicated from dictionaries and the language? Should it be, somehow, regulated? What is the significance of its emergence among some blacks as a term with "undertones of warmth and good will"? Do blacks have a historical right to its use or does that place the term under a "protectionist pall"? With courage and grave measure Kennedy has, in effect, created a forum for discussion of the word he calls a "reminder of the ironies and dilemmas, the tragedies and glories, of the American experience." --H. O'Billovitch
    Seems like a good read.

    In my observations of when the term "white trash" was used, it was used by one white person (usually female) to describe another white person they didn't like more so than a black person describing another white person. I would also put the term "wigger" in that observation as well.
    The half-million citizens of the District of Columbia, like citizens of the fifty states, bear all of the obligations of American citizenship: they are required to obey the laws passed by Congress; they pay federal taxes; they serve in the military; and they fight and die in our wars. Yet they lack the most basic right that should accompany American citizenship—the right to full voting representation in Congress. This makes the United States the only nation in the world with a representative, democratic constitution that denies citizens of its capital representation in the national legislature. In fact, no fewer than 183 nations provide their citizens the type of representation citizens of Washington, DC are denied.

    Most people consider null race to be their own.

    A white man will describe another white man as a "guy". He'll describe a black man as a "black guy".

    Same for a black man. He'll describe a black man as a "guy". He'll describe a white man as a "white guy".

    No need to get offended when someone uses skin color as a purely descriptive term.

    I think in most states you can say you were in fear of your life and shoot them. Any police officers here?

    Maybe I did come off like a honky lol. It just suprised me that he didn't know he had the option of saving his life(legally) if someone did break in with the intent to harm him.

    He probably said two black men committed the crime because they were two black men.

    its ok for black people to call white people white trash and everything else????and its ok to call themselfs the N word, but its not for white people to even say the N word, let alone use it as an adjective in a sentence with a subject????? I don't agree that anyone should say anything racial at all in a hateful manner, I think it sounds bad when a white person says the N word, but I also think it sounds bad when a black person calls himself or others the N word.

    I am going in the police academy sometime in the future, and I was already in criminal justice when I was in high school for a vocational class. It was free so the teacher didn't really make us learn anything, but I know in florida you can shoot the intruder in the fear of your own life, and only if he is still in your house. If you shoot him on the street cause you were chasing him, its no longer in fear of your life.

    Also in a police report when you write the description of the suspect the officer will ask you what race or color the intruder or suspect was.

    Put it this way just about every race has racial slurs or jokes for eachother.

    a huge % of the jokes on comedy central are racial. And their damn near funny. and I will laugh at them, lol

    The Bucs drafted a guy out of Akron, Dwight Smith. He's pretty damn good but got arrested for pulling out his gun in a bout of road rage last year.

    Pretty scary that a college neighborhood is unsafe I guess if I were them I would have to get a gun.

    9 out of 10 burglars wont commit a violent crime.

    violent crime is defined as rape or murder.

    in that other thread i already clarified that if you enter my house, you die.

    im just stating that although they made a threat, it is most likely that it was just so they wouldnt possibly get caught. notifying police was the right thing to do.

    **** criminals, especially the black ones.






    jk about the black part, it made me chuckle though

    I wonder what the stats are when a burglar goes into a house where the occupant has a gun and tries to use it...
    I'm guessing the number of residents of the home who get killed goes up substantially...

    Depends on who gets shot first. Anyhoo, Boston fairly safe IMO. Yes there are some scary areas but I don't think students worry too much here. I used to live in town when it was worse than now and I never really felt scared. Then again, I was careful when walking around the city at night.

    Here in England a farmer shot two burglars, who were inside his house, with his shotgun. One died, the other got a shell in the leg. Tony Martin is currently in prison for manslaughter and the second burglar is suing for damages against Mr. Martin. I guess we can't protect our homes and families without the threat of prison above our heads too.

    How?
    It was private property and they were trespassing. Laws need to be changed to protect people against situations like this. :/
