    I'm watching the history channel right now and it's about a gang in Portland Oregon!

    The Hoovers? Never heard of them, but good to know.

    I know one of the LEOs on there talking about them.

    The modern fine art of "CHING-CHING" would take care of them permanently.... if implemented judiciously. :D

    I saw that too. I get so fed up with all that crap. My hunting buddies and I always joke about loading up the pickup, rolling down the windows, blasting the country music and cruizin down some of these seedy neighborhoods. Always wonder how long it would take for somebody to "assualt" us. Don't think they would win that battle.

    That show was so full of over inflated truths and flat out BS that I now view the rest of the Gangland series with serious doubts!

    Doubts, or half truths, or just police scare tactics, it's wasn't pretty. I used to own several nicer old style homes in North Portland, 4 exactly, and am so glad to have sold them. I chased one fellow out of my service van with a pipe wrench, If I only would have swung first and sorted it out later..

    Didn't see the program, but I'm not a TV watcher anyway.

    Lived in darkest NE Portland 1989-1996.

    On a tail-end street called Liberty Street.

    All of my erstwhile progressive-lib friends thought I was insane.........

    Also my redneck friends, who thought I was even more insane.........

    Apparently it was OK to pass judgement as long as you

    Didn't actually live there.

    Great neighborhood, and I mean that honestly.

    The real and ongoing problem was a couple families of white trash,

    Whose names I will not mention.

    What is that old biblical phrase, something about

    Removing the beam from your own eye before

    You start looking for the mote in your neighbor's?

    Just my .02.

    I lived in NE near Alberta from 91-92 and the only uncomfortable place I encountered was the razor wire enclosed fortress post office on Alberta street.
