Welcome to MafiaManiac, a site is dedicated to the growth and expansion of the online forum game of Mafia.

Mafia is that party game you may have played, where there is a mafia (informed minority) trying to overtake an entire village and the villagers (uninformed Majority) are trying to stop them. We play these mafia games over several days in our forum and we have people from all over the world playing them. These mafia games can be themed from movies, real life situations and almost anything you can think of! Mafia involves a lot of creative strategy, making you think on your toes. You'll be forced trust your gut, check your logic, and deceive or be deceived. If you think you can handle playing, here are a few links you should definitely check out.

I'm fairly certain it was sarcasm. I suppose I can be a difficult read. Save the bears.

The " I'm fairly sure" sounded like sacasm but then the preceding part threw me off. http://www.mafiamaniac.net/img/Smilies/facepalm.gif *whoosh* **Words go flying over Aura's head at a rapid pace**

I throw sarcasm in with non-sarcasm. Why anyone would do that except to cause utter confusion is beyond me.

I hate myself. But I love bears.

You know, animal cruelty DOES fall under social injustices (no, I never added it; the animal lovers did....tongue.gif)

I feel that poverty makes a person do a lot of bad things; but at the same time, I've noticed that the wealthier you are, the more crap you do and crime is higher among the rich although most of it gets covered up.....dry.gif

EDM, are you talking about a specific group of people? The Mafia, perchance?

I don't love animals. Just bears. Ooh, and horses.

I don't think poverty or wealth increase crime...a lack of morals and conscience do that.

OT, I was actually talking about evil capitalists and politicians (emphasis on politicians)....poverty does not increase crime.....it just is a major cause of petty crime....and yes, lack of morals and conscience is another factor....which is the reason for 'rich' crimes.....http://www.mafiamaniac.net/img/Smilies/sigh.gif

Sorry to burst your bubble. Yes lack of morals is probably a root cause of crime. But poverty does increase crime, and not just petty crime. Unless murder, burglary, etc are petty crimes.

Depends on who's being murdered or burglarized. And where the body is buried.


Haha...Sorry, EDM, I'm such a jerk. Seriously, though...

Poverty doesn't murder people. People murder people.

Save the bears.

Look to say that poverty doesn't lead to crime, when the statistics show that poorer people commit crimes at a higher rate, says that poorer people are innately more criminal. I don't buy that. That is archaic in thinking.

Therefore, poverty is a contributor to crime rates.

I didn't say that the poor are more criminal...I said that the rich are more criminal (refer: politicians...)

What does it mean then? Why is it factual that poor neighborhoods have more dope, theft, fires, rapes, gangs and prostitution?

I think b/c they gave up on education to become successful and earn a living legally.

There is more to it but, that's part of it. http://www.mafiamaniac.net/img/Smilies/yes.gif

http://www.mafiamaniac.net/img/Smilies/facepalm.gif nice, Slick.....dry.gif tongue.gif

But seriously, it's a general fact that increase in population has led to an increase in crime since atleast half of our global population are idiots! mad.gif

So-o-o-o-o-o you're saying that these "poor neighbourhoods" (who somehow converted into people by the following sentence) choose to be uneducated, unemployed and do crime.

Let me break it down for you: people living in poverty have lower Life Chances™ than people who are more well off. That means they don't have the same level of opportunity available to them throughout their lives. On top of that, they lose hope and can only see limited options. It's very difficult to go to school, get a job, etc if you don't have a stable income and housing to begin with.

It is also difficult to break out of negative living conditions or a negative lifestyle. Sure, people have choices, but some have more choice than others. Some have to fight a s***load harder to keep their heads above water.
