Robocop as a concept made a lot of sense in the era when it was made. The late 80 and early 90s was the highest crime rate the country had seen. Everyone assumed it would keep getting worse and this movie was a response to that. Now that America is at historically low crime rates it doesn't make any sense so Al Qaeda is the answer I guess.
I've lived in 4 of those cities

An interesting article about the death of a men's wear shop.

There are no teacher unions in the south and people disrespect teachers there too. We've become a society that trusts kids more than adults. My gf got a nasty email after summer started attacking her for giving out detention to her daughter for not doing her homework that year. Can you imagine being mad at the teacher for that? It's common.
