Where were you, oh great xuenchen, when 9 people were murdered in Texas last week??

Busy stroking yourself and the web for only agenda supporting news?


It was in the MSM, before you pull that bs.

Thing is, people emphasize Chicago a lot like it's abnormally high.

Well, part of the 'high' reason is due to population. St. Louis has a much higher homicide per 100,000 rate, as do Baltimore, New Orleans, and Detroit. Chicago doesn't even make the world top 50 at below 20 per 100,000. It barely makes #25 in the U.S.. For some perspective, West Palm Beach, FL had a higher rate at #15 (21 homicides per 100,000).

e: also I just found a vulnerability... if you use a less than symbol, it hides that a post has been edited.



This. These are the only numbers that really show anything.

Well, we have to be sensitive to and not question black culture.


That's what the mayor of Chicago says. He also feels that illegal aliens should be respected too. As long as they keep their mayhem and murder within the "hoods", they are to be left alone.

Chicago's 2016 police chief (Garry McCarthy) says:

“So what’s happening, and this is ironic, is that a movement with the goal of saving black lives at this point is getting black lives taken, because 80 percent of our murder victims here in Chicago are male blacks,” he said, during a New Year’s Day radio interview, adding that BLM fuels lawlessness by advocating “non-compliance” with police. “The simplest way to describe it is that we have created an environment where we have emboldened criminals and we are hamstringing the police.”

So, the Black Lives Matters group is partially to blame? No wonder McCarthy was fired. He's wasn't politically correct!

Pretty bad when you have a city where 4 shot to death is not out of the ordinary.

Did you look at the historical figures near the bottom?
1955-1976 10,910 ~519/yr
1976-1979 2,408 ~602/yr
1979-1983 3,202 ~640/yr
1983-1987 3,295 ~659/yr
1987-1989 978 ~489/yr
1989-2011 14,653 ~666/yr
2011- 3,003 ~500/yr
Pretty much normal for Chicago.


Things are turning around for the better!

A man shot to death Sunday afternoon on the West Side became at least the 500th person to die in a homicide in Chicago in 2017, according to Tribune data.

In 2016, the city marked its 500th homicide in late August, according to Tribune data. So far in 2017, the number of homicides is down about 7 percent, from 538 during the same period in 2016.

When I look to see what's happening on scanner radio on Friday and Saturday nights Chicago is alway the #1 in their top 50 and usually by 2000.


I usually try to blame white supremacist.

Of course it will, the only way to reduce people being shot and killed is by having more people that have more guns, I mean how else do you reduce people getting shot....
