Chicago, my hometown and one of the most culturally vibrant cities in America, is currently seeing a shocking increase in violent crime. In the first 15 days of 2016, the oppressed black and hispanic youths have racked up this impressive scorecard:
Shot & Killed: 25 (+150% from same period in 2015)
Shot & Wounded: 132 (+175%)
Total Shot: 157 (+171%)
Total Homicides: 25 (+108%)
Keep in mind that 2015, was a significantly more violent year than usual.
A hot topic in Chicago recently has been police brutality, mostly due to the release of the dashcam video of black teenager Laquan McDonald being killed by a white police officer in October 2014. Leftist activists from across the nation have continued the demand for evil KKK white supreemist nazi cops to stop oppressing aspiring rappers and good boys and their communities. In Chicago at least, it seems like they’ve been getting their wish as of lately:
In the first 11 days of the year, officers filed just 3,916 investigative stop reports compared to 16,698 during the same time period last year, according to police data.
That’s a 79-percent decrease, and arguably evidence that officers are avoiding the kind of proactive policing better known as the “stop-and-frisk” investigative stops pushed by former top cop Garry McCarthy. That approach led to thousands of gun arrests and illegal guns being confiscated every year.
Indeed, gun confiscations and arrest are each down more than 35 percent this year.
So stop and frisk is down 79% and total shootings are up 171%. I’m sure these two things can’t possibly be related, right?
This issue also leads me to entirely unrelated point. I used to be a libertarian and was staunchly opposed to any form of aggressive policing such as stop-and-frisk. However, ever since the Ferguson debacle, which brought a more a critical eye towards policing, police have been considerably less aggressive in policing and crime has soared. This is why I am no longer a libertarian. A society without an aggressive police force is preferable, but it is simply not possible when you have large number of “vibrant” individuals in the population.
I’m sure everyone head about the evil far-right nazi kkk white supreeeeemist domestic terrorist thugs occupying a small federal outpost in Oregon. Given how hysterical the leftist reaction is to this group, who they’ve referred to as “Yall Qaeda” and “Vanilla ISIS”, I thought it was worth comparing this group to the Democratic party’s voting base: Black and Latino gang members in Chicago.
Number of people shot in 2016 by:
- Oregon protestors: 0
- Black and Latino Chicagoans: 64 (as of 11 PM January 6, 2016)
- Oregon protestors: Angry that the Federal Government has been encroaching on their land and overcharging them for minor crimes
- Black and Latino Chicagoans: Angry they didn’t get enough money from dem programs
Chicago crime increased quite a bit this past year. Hear the data according to HeyJackass. In parentheses is the difference from 2014.
499 homicides (+8.5%)
2995 total shootings (+14.4%)
9 police killings (-47.1%)
25 total police shootings (-44.4%)
I’m sure these two things totally can’t be related.
CBS just released a list, of the nine safest cities in America. They all have seem to have one thing in common.
9. Salem, Oregon – 1.5% Black
8. Fremont, California – 3.3% Black
7. McAllen, Texas – 1.6% Black
6. San Jose, California – 3.2% Black
5. Alexandria, Virginia – 21.0% Black
4. Cary, North Carolina – 8.0% Black
3. Bellevue, Washington – 2.3% Black
2. Honolulu, Hawaii – 1.5% Black
1. Sunnyvale, California – 2.0% black
For comparison, black people make up 13% of the total population of the US making Alexandria the only city on this list with a higher than average black population.
Doing what makes you feel best is the best way to live life. It totally will never have any negative consequences.
Oh and by the way, these are the people your tax dollars are going to.
More proof that most “terrorism” is state-created or enabled.
“A gunman killed during his attack on an Islamic prophet Muhammad art show in Garland, Texas, reportedly bought a pistol through a botched federal firearm sting.
Nadir Soofi bought a 9-mm pistol at a Phoenix gun shop in 2010, one report said, that sold illegal firearms through ATF’s heavily criticized Operation Fast and Furious to track firearms back to Mexican drug cartels.
The Senate Homeland Security Committee wants to know if that same pistol was used five years later in an alleged Islamic State-sanctioned shootout targeting right-wing blogger Pamela Geller’s event, according to a memo obtained by the Los Angeles Times […] A week-long hold was also placed on Soofi’s gun purchase, but authorities lifted it after only a day, the Times added.”
Interesting that his background check was quickly stopped in addition to Dylann Roof’s somehow failing. Kinda makes you think that the feds want guns to get into the hands of terrorists so they can take them away from decent citizens.
