Chicago Murder Rate up 56% [George Zimmerman NEVER seen in Chicago!]
Fox Chicago ^ | 3/30/2012

Posted on 03/31/2012 6:50:54 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

We need to talk about the epidemic of violence that is raging on the streets of Chicago.

The numbers can only be described as terrifying.

Thirteen people were shot and two killed in six hours on Thursday. There have been 23 murders in the past two weeks, and 117 already this year.

Chicago's murder rate is up 56 percent over last year.

The people of Chicago are caught in the crossfire, and we are going to take an in-depth look at the violence.

Why is it happening?

Who is to blame?

The Martin/Zimmerman issue has an unintended consequence to the nation’s race-baiters. It is bringing to national attention the real issue of black crime.

It is the “Chicago Way” - from the Bammy pre-election period.

Not that Chicago has not been sinking deeper into the socialism and Urban Feralism for generations.

Chicago is the city damned by Democrats being Democratic.

Since we don`t know where he is, There is NO evidence that Zimmerman is NOT involved...There has to be a way to tie him into everything bad that happens all over the world!!!

ZIMMERMAN!!! IS THAT YOU??!!!!

The worm will have really turned when the spotlight is shined on black on white/other violent crime.

The people of Chicago are to blame, of course. They keep voting in the same kinds of people year after year. Elect some pro-NRA, pro-law enforcement conservatives and wait a few years. Things would start to improve.

It's impossible. No one can be shot in Chicago, as guns are forbidden there. Must be something else.

Have they had the two voice experts study all the 911 recordings in Chicago yet? Maybe they will find George’s voice there. Weren’t those experts from Chicago?

A lot of NO_LIMIT_NE&&A’s walking around trying to be Gangstas in Chicago.

About 99% of victims are BLACK and 100% of perps are “black” negros opposed to “white” Hispanics.

Just for some perspective, NYC had 28 homicides in January with almost three times the population of Chicago. Chicago had 23 in two weeks.

I’m more curious of the democrat to republican crime ratio. I’ll bet conservatives account for less than 1% of all murderers.

Can’t defend Zimmerman, I believe He murdered the kid.

But I will repeat, this is a minority on minority Democrat on Democrat crime

Conservative Republicans were not and are not involved.

And this White Hispanic - new word to me... not buying into it.

That ain’t no white black guy in the big house.

Let me make an addendum to your post...

It will bring national attention to black on black crime not black crime in general...

The media will never get their panties in a wad over black on white crime....after all "whitey" deserves it... and white guilt will never go out of fashion

You're right, It's just bad reporting. Must have been space debris.

Everyone knows passing a law banning guns halts all crime.

The people of the U.S. have a corrupt race baiting Socialist for a president, an out of control national debt approaching 15 trillion, wide open violent lawless borders, during war time, etc.

Is Chicago to blame?

According to the article, they turn to Master Demon, Michael Pfleger of St. Sabina’s Hell for answers.

The rage hate artist will make everything better as soon as whitey and freedom are erased from the land and everyone remaining is as evil as Pfleger.

Headline Chicago Tribune 4-01-12: 1 dead, 8 hurt in overnight shootings
Updated 19 minutes ago

Nine people were shot between 11:30 p.m. yesterday and 5 a.m. today, according to Chicago police, including four outside a West Side club about 3 a.m.

The Tribune does not give the race of the shooters or shootees. And this is in addition to the 13 people shot in the there Thursday. So do some checking on your own, it is easy.

I hope you're right. I suspect the committed leftists of the MSM will do their best to gloss over it (after a moment's passing notice so as to deflect criticism away from their obvious bias) and bury it quickly.
