If Obama Wins- How many cars will be burned in Chicago

You see it all the time after some athletic teams wins or looses and they don't talk about race, so don't start it in this thread

People this is not about Race.
It's about the MOB
Your going to have Thousands of people jacked up milling around.
Bet somethings get out of hand

No riots if he wins . . . only if he loses.

When I was in the ER two weeks ago, one of the nurses who helped me said she had just moved from Chicago where the amount of gunshot deaths was very bad. Fortunately, I grew up in Ferris Bueller land so I never experienced the most dangerous parts of Chicago:

Quote:
More people have been murdered in Chicago this year than in New York - even though New York's population is three times greater. When Hudson's mother, brother and nephew were killed last month, they pushed the city's homicide total for the year to 436 and counting. New York has had 430 homicides.

"We're not proud of it," Mayor Richard Daley said last week, as the killings put new scrutiny on Chicago's out-of-control crime as the city bids for the 2016 Olympics. "We'll get it down next year. We'll get it down. We'll do things differently."

Cops and criminologists say Chicago's stubborn murder rate is a product of larger forces that are tough to control - entrenched street gangs, a heavy drug trade and a culture of gunplay.

"Everyone has a gun," said Chicago police spokeswoman Monique Bond, who said a recent gun buyback program netted 7,000 weapons in three hours. "We've got 75,000 gang members - that's almost six gang members to one police officer."
I hope the city can control itself no matter who wins.

There'll be riots either way.
I used to live in Columbus, OH - they'd riot if they beat Michigan, and they'd riot when they lost.

Thats an unfair question. They burn cars in Chicago just for the fun of it.

Doubtful...

Non Obama supporters are pretty fearful of what will come if he is elected... I know I am. I will probably turn my efforts to conservation and preparation. Rioting is a waste of time and resources.

Of course some are good at those two.

His supporters will riot either way.
A "celebratory" riot if he wins, or a "rage" riot if he loses.

I reckon 53 million 450 thousand and 136 (plus a Hummer on stilts) cars will
be offered as sacrifice to The ONE.

How many threads will be started on RCGroups about election day riots? I bet its more then the amount of cars burned here. I will let you know since I'm on my way down to Grant Park. Got my ticket yesterday.

Good question, the closest thing white people normally have going on is football victory riots. The idiots tore up downtown State College a few weeks ago when Penn State won.

Isn't burning cars a national pastime for various reasons in France? Don't liberals want us to be more like France? A coincidence? Je pense non!

If I had a car in a urban area I might want to drive it to, say, a church parking lot, just in case the unthinkable happens tonight. On the other hand, I would not want to be around a country club should McCain lose! The horror! The horror!
