    Another incident at the Troy, MI Chuck E. Cheese: Fists flying and hair pulling reported during fight at Chuck E. Cheese in Troy

    Oddly, the City of Troy is often ranked pretty high nationally when it comes to crime or on "Best/Safest Places to Live" lists. But I'm pretty sure that I've discovered the police department's secret to success: just isolate all the troublemakers at the local Chuck E. Cheese! Troy is actually a relatively large city in terms of area and the current Chuck E. Cheese is in the extreme southeast corner of the city. I wonder if anybody has considered opening a second location, maybe in the northwest corner to help draw out the criminals in other areas?

    LIke I said before, it's all that riff-raff hanging around the Oakland Mall.

    Wait, isn't there a Macy's there.

    Let’s break it down to what it really is. It is a crooked casino for kids run by an oversized rat.

    An armed man robbed a Chuck E. Cheese pizza restaurant in San Bruno before fleeing in a Toyota Prius, authorities said Wednesday.

    The robber walked into the Chuck E. Cheese at a shopping center at 1270 El Camino Real just after 3:30 p.m. Monday, said police spokesman Lt. Tim Mahon. About 30 customers were inside, half of them children.

    when you google "Chuck E Cheese violent crime" or "Chuck E Cheese domestic violence," this thread appears on the first page of search results.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    1800 Block of Fullerton? Lathrop Homes? May fall into the city's definition of "lincoln Park" but not any residents' "West DePaul" would be the realtors name for it

    My daughter is going to a b-day party at Chuck E. Cheese tonight in the high crime city of Sterling Heights, MI.

    I will report whether or not she has to bitch slap some other kids.

    Probably, somewhere around 17 & Van Dyke?

    Da hood, fo' sure.

    Unlike the pristine haven of 21 & 53.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Be careful, she might get mugged over those tickets.

    Hall Road and Schoenner. She got some stickers but did not have to get violent.
