Nice looking golf courses! Man, I haven't been golfing in about 2 years or so... not enough time & money, but I would love to get out there again, and your courses look very inviting, Bompa.

I currently live in northwest Indiana (Lake County). We're best known for Gary, Indiana, which has had the privilege of being deemed the "murder capital of the nation" for several years... but I think Gary lost the title a few years ago. But I have confidence that the gangs will kill enough people this year to take back the title. Oh-jeez

I don't live within Gary city limits, just a few miles from there... but we do need the tourism dollars, so I'm hoping you'll all come and visit. Here's some tourism pics to encourage you to pick Gary as your next vacation spot:

While they may well deserve better pay, I love the implication that things would improve if the government spent more taxpayer money on police salaries.

Agreed. The issue of crime in Gary has nothing to do with police salaries. They could quadruple the paychecks of Gary cops and it would have very little effect upon the crime rate.

That said, I woudn't want to be a Gary Cop and for what they're asked to do, they probably are underpaid. Back in the early 90's I think - the gangs basically took over many sections of the city. The cops just walked away and let the gangs take over. The Indiana State Police was called in to police the city, because the Gary cops were afraid of the gang members, refusing to respond to 911 calls in the sections of the city where gangs were in control. (and their fear was probably justifiable).

Isn't it funny how when I started a Thread to show members what a great part of my country I live in, I get responses about how some live in a murder capital and then onto talk police politics!!!

Well - not all of Indiana is like Lake County. I live in Hamilton County, in the "city" of Westfield.
