Scene of the crime: 'It's spreading, spreading more over here'
Chicago Tribune ^ | July 26, 2014 | Peter Nickeas

Posted on 07/27/2014 6:38:14 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

The 3-year-old boy was outside with his mother, her boyfriend and another man about 10 p.m. Friday night in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

The child isn’t old enough to know what a Satan’s Disciple or Two-Sixer is, let alone comprehend all the things that can mean in a neighborhood like this one. But in Chicago, gang conflicts have a way of consuming the neighborhoods where they occur and noncombatants often become an unwilling and unknowing participant.

Can anyone spot the problem(s) in this scenario?

I’m guessing the 3-year old also was sucking on a baby bottle with red drank in it. No shirt, no shoes, and a Huggie...

I wouldn’t guess the collective IQ in that photo to be over 14.

I would guess that at least three of the four are dead or in prison.

Yeah, I know that sounds like profiling. It’s also being honest.

The youth gangs are a spreading cancer in our cities. It’s not just big cities either. Many smaller cities have gang problems too.

We should declare war on the gangs. How to do that without losing civil liberties, I do not know. But I do know that the youth gangs are at war with us. They are feral, uncivilized savages. They settle all slights, real and imagined, with violence. They are a threat to the survival of civilization itself, in my opinion.

Liberals don’t often get concerned about the gangs. Perhaps because liberals are afraid of perceptions of racism if they say anything. The liberals want us all to fight this nebulous threat of global warming, when there are major threats to our ongoing daily existence which they ignore.

Sure the boy ought to have been in bed maybe, but maybe this was some occasion that got special treatment. For God’s sake, have some humanity, who in the hell cares what time he was supposed to go to bed!!!!

The tighter the government controls guns, the worse the problem. Just as guns are a divisive issue in the progressive ranks, because feminists know that guns are the great equalizer, urban metro sexual men are figuring it out as well. Poindexter with a Glock 17 and a little training is not something these gang folk want to see.

liberals don't often get concerned about the gangs.

Elitists, liberal and conservatives, have built highways and other construction projects that are like moats keeping the chaos confined and away from where they live and work.

There are a few real threats to that status quo. One is central american hordes being moved into communities, many of which have seen the effects of Somali and other refugees over the past few years. Move those "children" into the schools, and the gang violance and drug and sex trafficking will follow.

Another threat is idle youth in their mid and upper 20s who have got to be put to work. I could see the thug culture spreading to that population if they aren't.

I am sure that his mother was what I would consider slack and stupid, but he didn’t die because his mom let him stay out too late, but because of those damn gang bangers, including his mom of course. They should be shot on sight. THEY should, not the boy.

Until fathers decide to stay in the lives of their children and actively raise them, the situation will remain the same or get worse.

I'm in full agreement with you there.

I've been reading about gang problems in the big and not so big cities for the past fifty years. Everybody wrings their hands and either does nothing or blames Whitey for the problem. The culprits, the killers, are never blamed.

What is the solution? Get the culprits off the streets and punish them severely when caught. Profiling will have to be involved. And of course, that will never happen, and the killings will go on.

Your comment lacks the cultural diversity element of the dahood...

We should not impose the white anglo saxon standards of raising children...on the black community...

You know things like: "early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise"...

That'd be racist...

Poindexter with a Remington 700 in .308 is probably a problem for them too.

The one on the left appears to be out on his feet.Too many drugs/alcohol?
The one in the middle would be the primary target.
The guy on the right looks like he’s there for the party.

‘Canadian researchers have found that high-fructose corn syrup can cause behavioral reactions in rats ‘similar to those produced by drugs of abuse, such as cocaine’.’

“Red drank”

Ah. Ghetto juice, yes. Corn syrup. Red dye. Water.

Often wondered about the effects of corn-syrupy red drank...and the cultural predilection...and, now....the correlation of large donations from agribuisinesses to politicos, and the wide availability of diabetes-inducing, addictive toxins in EBT level dietary regimen...without legislation to eradicate it from “foods”. Now, especially, in light of the behavioral abnormalities from it being discovered, all kinda makes some sense.
