Chicago: Murder City, U.S.A.

Posted on | January 3, 2016 | 48 Comments

If violent death is your idea of fun, Chicago is a fun place:

The Chicago Police Department announced Friday that murders and shootings rose significantly in 2015 . . .
The year-end crime statistics showed there were 468 murders in Chicago in 2015 compared with 416 the year before, a 12.5% increase, as well as 2,900 shootings—13% more than the year prior, and up 29% since 2013. Chicago had more homicides than any other city in 2015, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Three people were shot to death in Chicago on New Year’s Day, and another 12 people were wounded, but survived. What the hell is wrong with Chicago? It’s run by corrupt Democrats (but I repeat myself) who have no respect for the idiots who elected them, because why should they? If people are stupid enough to vote for Democrats, they deserve bad government, and Mayor Rahm Emmanuel is making sure the stupid voters of Chicago get exactly what they deserve:

Hundreds of police officers at one of the country’s busiest airports say in the case of an active shooter, they are instructed to run and hide.
That’s because these officers are unique among the nation’s major airports: They don’t carry guns.
Their badges, uniforms and vehicles all say “police.” And they are certified police officers in the state of Illinois.
But these nearly 300 aviation police officers, also known as aviation security officers, are not allowed to carry guns at Chicago’s O’Hare and Midway airports. . . .
Internal aviation department documents obtained through department sources state, “If evacuation is not possible: hide.”
The documents advise locking doors, turning off lights and remaining quiet and calm.
“We must also ensure that unarmed security personnel … do not attempt to become part of the response, but could be invaluable to the evacuation efforts,” the documents said.
In addition, a training video shown to aviation police officers has the same instructions: “If evacuation is not possible, you should find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find you. Block entry to your hiding place and lock the door.”

Chicago used to be a great city, but Democrats are determined to prove that they can ruin anything. “The murder and shooting rates there make Kandahar Province look like a cozy, secure vacation destination,” Jazz Shaw writes at Hot Air, adding that residents “might want to take some advice from Daniel Greenfield and Escape from Chicago.”

    I left Chicago in November of 1987 for the warmth of Florida one month before my 13th birthdate. I left because of the cold, but looking at this article I am glad I had left when I did.

    If only the murderous NRA would permit Chicago to implement common sense gun control laws, this would not be happening!

    Here’s another analysis of Chicago’s impending doom:

    This will not end quietly or gracefully because the people being hurt by the failed Blue Model will not let it go. They want their free stuff, damn it, and will have their free stuff however long they need to bang on their high chairs and fling their strained beets across the room. So while it will be grimly amusing to watch them ride to their destruction like Slim Pickens on the nuke, Chicago’s failure (and that of the other major cities slouching towards Bethlehem to be born) will damage the entire nation, possibly beyond repair.

    Interesting times.

    Sorry, but that’s bullshit. Chicago has some of the most strict gun laws in America and yet, the thugs still get the guns. It’s not a gun problem, it’s a society problem.

    As with all hotbeds of corruption, Chicago’s runs very, very deep. I doubt that any change is possible even if the electorate wises up. The elections there are mere coronations of the designated winner among the corrupt white Democrat politicians v. the corrupt black Democrat politicians.

    Chicago got beaten out by foul, fetid, fuming, foggy, filthy Philadelphia. Chicago’s 468 murders, compared to its population of 2.719 million, yields a murder rate of 17.212 per 100,000 people, while the City of Brotherly Love’s 279 homicides, and its population of 1.553 million, results in a murder rate of 17.965 per 100,000.

    And once the numbers for Camden and Detroit are released, Chicago will fall even further back.

    Funny thing; Chicago is also dead last in federal gun prosecutions for a major city; I remember the stat as 49 federal prosecutions in 2013, out of over 49,000 gun-related crimes. Even if only half of those involved violation of federal law, that’s a .2 percent prosecution rate. This rate has dropped precipitously since the GW Bush administration.

    But we need more laws and regulations, right, Ear Leader?

    Perhaps we might consider that a significant part of the problem is simple urbanization: Maybe packing so many people so close together is it’s own problem.

    That statistic needs more fleshing out. The vast majority of violent crimes are state crimes, not federal, and we’d need to know whether state prosecutions for firearms crimes are also declining.

    State firearms charges can go in the same trial as the homicide or assault charges, but federal firearms trials would be entirely separate. If the criminal receives a sufficiently long sentence at the state level, a federal trial is just a waste of money.

    Generally what you say is true, however, remember that any time someone with a criminal record possesses a firearm, it is a federal crime. I cannot imagine that group doesn’t include a substantial chunk of Chicago’s gun crime.

    It’s all the fault of welfare. It doesn’t pay enough to escape to the suburbs. Therefore noble honest people are stuck in the urban center with other noble honest people while the true rats hide outside the city limits. Stinking white cis scum. I hate ’em.

    What is pathetic is that when a rat population reaches a certain density they stop breeding.

    On the other hand, nobody pays rats to keep breeding. Plus, rats don’t vote, not even in Chicago.

    Yes it is. And the elite have much more of this planned for us all in the future (see Agenda 21 or whatever it’s called now – too lazy to look it up). We are all much easier for them to control when we are relegated to big rat warrens, and if some of us kill others of us, well, that just saves the elite the trouble of killing us themselves later.

    Conservatives, Christians and people who object to gun confiscation (but I repeat myself) are but a speedbump to the inbred asshats who fancy themselves our superiors, and who will import in as many terrorists, third world criminals and H1B visa holders as it takes to subdue us (or destroy us, whichever comes first). Once Western civilization has been crushed (already well on its way), it’s just a hop, skip and a jump to world domination.

    Exactly so about Agenda 21. When you mention it to most people you either get a blank stare…or are scoffed at as some kind of conspiracy nut.

    But the information about it is out there for anyone to see. Here is the Wiki page on it: There are other links, just google Agenda 21.

    Blogazines like Think Progress, Mother Jones, etal., scoff at the conspiracy aspect of the program. The Blaze has done a lot of research on the program and goes towards the conspiracy side of the argument.

    The problem is, if one were to go to their local county or city archives and look up ‘sustainable development, you will find that there are programs in place that will disallow you to do certain things with your own land. ( I’m not talking about HOA’s, ect. If you bought into one of those, then you have to obey their bylaws.) In some localities, you can’t drill a well on your own land or capture rain water.

    A number of years ago there was an experiment done with rats that gave them an unlimited food supply and let them breed to their heart’s content. At the end of the orgy, not one of the rats survived. I understand it was repeated with mice with the same result.

    In most states that also applies. Normally the disability charge is an add on for the Feds. Most gun crimes are charged on the state level including possession under disability.

    I remember someone noting that the difference between red state megalopolises and blue state ones is that the red state ones generally didn’t have geographic obstacles to the growth of their suburbs. Cities like Dallas and Houston and Atlanta can grow in all directions; compare to NYC and Los Angeles and Chicago and San Francisco all of which have geography working against them.

    It’s not just land use, though that’s a big part of it.

    Among the lesser known aspects is the desire/plan to implement “regional” education systems. In other words, to get rid of local school districts entirely in order to funnel tax dollars away from wealthy districts to give to poorer, decrepit, failing inner city schools. If one lives in an area with some civic minded “regional growth” association or some similarly named quasi-government entity, one is in the thick of it.

    Also, the “community rating” in Obamacare is part of this, as well. Community ratings generally increase costs for those in rural areas while limiting access to high end medical care. Where it used to be the norm for rural hospitals to send their sickest patients to large city hospitals, it’s now financially difficult to do so, because those city hospitals and specialists are “out of network.” The incentive is for people to move back to the cities, if they have special medical needs.

    Lending regulations also will be affected. One’s demographic will determine whether you can get a loan for one’s dream house, because the focus will be on neighborhood “diversity.”

    (BTW, all of these things I’ve become aware of in my professional life. It’s not going to happen next week, but steps are being taken to move in that direction. Our grandkids will most definitely be dealing with these issues unless they are stopped.)

    Chicago is quite nice, if one is only visiting. It’s possible to fly into Midway cheap and hop the Orange Line to the loop. As long as you stay north of the Chicago River and east of the interstates, you’re generally OK. My wife and I go up there for weekends every year or so. No way I’d live there, but for a getaway, it’s OK.

    Our grandkids will most definitely be dealing with these issues unless they are stopped.

    Since I’ve already got 11 grandkids, yes, I believe they will. Even our kids might be dealing with these issues late in life.

    I believe how it will come about is by the government not allowing land owned by families for generations to be passed down to it’s rightful heirs. The government will use some kind of imminent domain law or environmental bullshit to confiscate it.

    Part of the Agenda 21 plan is to create ‘bio-diversity’ zones which will be closed off to or restricted to minimal human habitation. You might be able to visit, but you won’t be allowed to live there.

    If you’ve ever seen the map of the goal for Agenda 21, you will see that almost the entire Appalachian Mtn chain will be placed off limits, as well as the Rocky and Cascade Mtn chains.

    Place the population in cities and there won’t be any need for cars or trucks. Everyone will be forced to use mass transit.
