Chicago Violence Problem

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Should the Governor of Illinois declare Martial Law in Chicago after 70 shot and 13 dead over this past weekend? The governor is a Republican, but is pro Santuary Satate, which is problematic.  The democrats/Bolsheviks are calling for more gun control. Interesting stuff about to happen.

Even with that spike the shootings and murders are down this year in Chicago. They are placing additional police on the streets by extending their shifts and cancelling vacations. That obviously is not sustainable for a long period of time. But it appears they were making some progress until this past weekend.

Last night there were some heated street arguments that want the mayor out. Can't wait for some actual street shootings during protests. It's like the old west in Dodge City.

This is an excerpt from a Chicago tribune article that came out today. Pretty much explains where the biggest issues are.

 

There can’t be a rational explanation because Chicago’s plague of urban warfare isn’t logical; it’s horrifically cruel and self-destructive. A 2017 University of Chicago Crime Lab study was able to quantify how much of the city’s gunfire victimizes residents of struggling neighborhoods: Five South and West side communities with 9 percent of Chicago’s population (Austin, Englewood, New City, West Englewood and Greater Grand Crossing) accounted for nearly half the city’s increase in 2016 homicides. African-American men ages 15-34 made up more than half of the city’s homicide victims in 2015 and 2016 while accounting for just 4 percent of the city’s population. Almost 40 percent of victims had prior violent crime arrests.

“One of the ways Chicago is different is that our social conditions are not anything like those now in New York City and Los Angeles,” Jens Ludwig, director of the Crime Lab, told a City Club audience early this year. “We are not just the most segregated city in America, but the level of concentrated poverty we have in our neighborhoods is unlike anything in Los Angeles or New York. You would not find an Englewood or Garfield Park anywhere in Los Angeles and New York.”

The dynamics at play, the ones Chicagoans want to understand to end the bloodshed, are complex. Gang life is a substitute for hope in isolated neighborhoods. Every shooting invites a retaliatory attack. In a city of 2.7 million people, a relatively small number of criminals — perhaps 5,000 to 10,000 thugs and drug dealers — are driving a large share of the violence. “It’s the same individuals that continuously commit these crimes,” Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson said.

I’ll bet that the CPD know who the gang members are but are unable to do anything 

because their hands are tied by that douch bag mayor

Can't go arrest the thugs. It would be racist! ....to the Dems/libs.  

Police should tell the gangbangers that ISIS is coming for their drugs.  They'd wipe each other out in a couple weekends.

It is always sad when a human life is wasted but with that said a part of me really doesn't care- if shit bags want to kill other shit bags,  then so be it.

Update on gangs and estimated members. The cops are outnumbered and this chart is a few years old.

This is a better site for Chicago shootings https://heyjackass.com/

Pretty interesting link. Pretty much 3 sections/ neighborhoods seem to count for the bulk of the shootings.

At this point something needs to be done. I don’t know how this has gone on this long without major organizing from the good people in Chicago to make something happen. It’s very sad when any American must live in a place like this.

They already took care of the problem by implementing the most stringent gun control laws in the country. Enough said!

What they should be doing is arming every person over 21 that can pass a criminal background check.

Kind of ironic when the Democratic voting bloc is killing the Democratic voting bloc.  Be a lot less potential voters if the rest of August and September remains HOT and Humid.

So according to the article, if the city were more integrated the violence would go down?   For a city controlled by the democrat party for decades, it's obvious that something is wrong because at best nothing changes and at worst the violence increases.   How is it possible the CPD knows the same individuals are committing the crimes  over and over and don't do anything to stop it? Is it political pressure from the Mayor and city council?   It's insane that they do the same things over and over and expect different results.   I feel sorry for good people who have to put up with this BS.

Sadly the violence will not abate anytime soon. Any solution would have to include the progressives admitting the utter failure of their policies and such truth is nowhere to found in modern American politics. No doubt the people of Chicago bare some of the blame but such is their level of indoctrination, actually brainwashing is more fitting an analogy, that they would rather blame a long gone institution or the fiction that is white privilege then indulge in the remedy of introspection and self responsibility.  

Worry not though for the serenity of socialism with all it's gifts and promise is just an election away....

This is what  happens when you no longer encourage proactive policing. When you tie law enforcements hands, this is a result.

Do these people even vote? Would they even care who is in charge if things don't get any better from year to year? Is throwing out those in charge going to make any difference at all? Nothing will change until someone has balls enough to change it.
