Itís a War Zone! More Murders in Chicago in 2012 Than Allied Losses in Afghanistan
The Gatway Pundit ^ | 1/13/13 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 01/12/2013 11:04:25 PM PST by Nachum

There were 405 Coalition deaths in Afghanistan in 2012. 310 of the 405 deaths were Americans.

Meanwhile in Chicago… There were 532 homicides in 2012.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel attributes the rise in homicides, in part, to the broader problem of illegal guns.

Yes, it’s those guns, NOT democrat rule for decades nor the unconscionable culture that passes for civilization.

And while I’m at it, never mind those Chicago government schools, ruled by that Teacher’s Union we witnessed in 2012. To say they’re overpaid, is a gross understatement and a complete waste of taxpayer money.

If Chicago were a foreign country the State Dept. would issue a travel ban
and 0bama would watch the mayhem from the WH Ready Room.

Just goes to show that they had Defensive weapons in Afghanistan so the injury ratio was less than Chicago.

Illegal drugs must be booming in Chicago.

Time to go door to door to confiscate the illegal drugs.

Funny how there’s no concern over *that* “gun violence. Don’t believe me?

“Criminals aren’t the problem. Citizens who have legal guns then shoot children are the problems

(link redacted)

why are people so worried about street crime, when this is not the problem at hand.
Street crime in NYC is at the lowest level ever, homicides are down to the lowest ever

The problem is regular people with legal guns doing mass killings

getting guns off the street would stop 100% of all mass killings accessed from a street if new security methods put in place

the above would stop ZERO mass killings”

What? Sooo, criminals blowing other people away on the American street *in excess of a war zone* is of no concern, but the relatively rare incidence of a lone lunatic going on a shooting spree is such a problem that no one should have a gun.
0.o Oh wait. Did I just say that the lone lunatics are the problem? Why don’t they just ban lunatics? Or get them all together so they won’t be lonely & just disarm them?

“Ban Chicago.”

Actually, Chicago is a lovely city. I worked at a major University (UIC) for years, amongst other jobs I held when young down in Chicago (I’m retired in the western burbs). All of the mayhem is taking place in certain areas of the city (primarily the south side), and as long as you stay out of those bad areas, you should be fine. There are major gang wars taking place and they are very hard to stamp out. Lots of unemployed, welfare raised yutes with nothing better to do with their lives than cause trouble. Young men with no purpose in life are invariably loose cannon that are not easy to control. Too bad they are giving a very beautiful and vibrant city a bad name.

I love Chicago, but it is unfortunately run by the Dem machine, is/was the home of Obama, his headquarters for election campaigns, and thus now tarnished by Obama and company. The whole state of IL is now bluer than blue, and is being run into the financial ground by the Dems on a statewide level. What a shame. So much fascinating history in Chicago, and now bad history created by a fascist dear leader and his minions. Hope when he retires Obama never comes back to Chicago and goes to Hawaii, as far away from the mainland as possible. Like banning him to Elba. He does think he’s the Emperor, you know.

Too bad he is too ignorant to recognize that the real problem are not guns but SOCIALISM which either direct or indirectly and in a round about way condemns many people to remain destitute and ignorant. All you have to do is consider who is doing the most shooting. I wonder if this has ever occurred to him.Well what else would you expect from a mentally challenged party hack.

When will they learn. There's only one way to stop the violence from flowing in from the surrounding flyover country.

Take away their guns and they’ll just switch to machetes in Chicago.

It ought to be a LAW that a man cannot impregnate a woman and walk away from fatherhood so she can receive more government handouts.

COOK COUNTY

Preckwinkle To Introduce Stricter Gun Regulations

January 12, 2013 4:39 PM

Reporting Nancy Harty

Heard on WBBM 780, Local, News, Syndicated Local, Watch + Listen:

Cook County, Cook County Board President, gun control, gun regulations, Rahm Emanuel, Toni Preckwinkle

CHICAGO (CBS) — Gun owners in Chicago and suburban Cook County may have new incentives for keeping better track of their weapons.

Following a record number of homicides in Chicago last year, Mayor Emanuel reportedly want to double the penalty for gun owners who fail to report the loss, theft or transfer of guns to six months in jail.

Preckwinkle To Introduce Stricter Gun Regulations
WBBM Newsradio’s Nancy Harty

00:00

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle says she will introduce a proposal on Wednesday since the problem goes beyond city limits.

“20 percent of the illegal guns that are used in crimes in Chicago are purchased legally in suburban Cook so we have to get a better handle on guns across the county and this is a way to do that.”

Preckwinkle declined to offer further details about the proposal, saying it is still being worked out.

Yes really. Occasionally the mobs stray off the reservation, but not that often. It is primarily a south south/west side phenomena. Like any large city, there is crime throughout the city, but it remains pretty localized. All you have to do is listen to the local nightly news to know that by where they report the locality of the crime that has taken place. It remains primarily the south side. With the monicker “KeyLargo”, I doubt you live in Chicago to really know the city well.

A very long time ago, when driving to Chicago, I accidentally got lost and ended up on the South Side. Nothing happened, but it left an impression then.

A similar situation happened when I ended up driving through the barrio in San Juan at dusk, but there were a lot of people out who would have had me for lunch had I stopped the car for any reason.

Notes from the Chicago Intifada, 2012

Paul K. (not Paul Kersey, as I initially posted by mistake) writes:

As summer approaches, the black intifada ramps up in Chicago. This past weekend, groups of young blacks rampaged through the downtown area, administering beatings. As usual, the media and politically sensitive police higher-ups sought to minimize the problem. Here is how the attacks were described by Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy:

McCarthy said he knew of three downtown mob attacks over the weekend, including the Michigan man jumped on North State; a couple robbed on the CTA Red Line, and a man beaten in the Gold Coast area.

According to Second City Cop, a blog run by a police officer, the attacks are being undercounted by a factor of ten. He writes:

And for the record, the “three” “muggings” that are being “investigated?” Add a zero to that for incidents occurring last night in 018 [district].

Crime is down and if no one reports it or the media doesn’t get a hold of it? It never happened.

Here is a comment at his site:

it was the worst ever on mag mile. people eating outdoors at restaurants were getting bottles and stuff thrown at them. there were groups of hundreds “wilding”. hundreds. like packs of 300-400 beating , robbing etc. wow. just wow. i mean really wtf.

In an article in today’s Chicago Tribune, an Asian doctor describes being attacked by blacks Sunday night as he walked the four blocks between the hospital where he works and his home, through what the article describes as “the quiet and wealthy Streeterville neighborhood.” The doctor is reluctant to ascribe any racial component to the attack.

“I saw the mob of them … young teenagers, tweeners between 13 and 15 years old, like young kids you’d see at the mall,” the doctor said. “The thing I remember clearly was that they were enjoying frightening people. They went after a food delivery man on a bike. Then they went after me. It was like ‘Lord of the Flies.’

“And then they hit me with something, a hard blunt object on the back of the head, and I went down,” the doctor said.

Taken back to the hospital, he received treatment for facial wounds and received three deep stitches. “My wife’s upset,” he said. “There was blood, but it could have been worse.”

I asked about that elephant in the room: Was it racial?

“I don’t think it was racially motivated,” the doctor said. “They were black, I’m Asian, but I think it was something else. I think it was about having fun because they could … I’m not sure what this says. I don’t know where you would start. You’ve got to wonder why these young kids are out at 10 o’clock on a Sunday night.”

Discussing the attacks, a Streeterville woman was not so naive, but another neighbor was primarily concerned about “feelings”:

Some people, like property manager Peggy Wood, thought the mob attacks might be hate crimes. “Did they rob the victims? No,” Wood said. “It wasn’t about robbing. It’s about hurting. Just to beat someone up for the fun of it? I’m no lawyer, but I’d call it a hate crime.”

Others didn’t want to view it through a racial prism. “It’s very difficult to discuss,” said Tim Hunter, an insurance executive. “We don’t want to talk in racial terms. We don’t want to hurt people’s feelings. It’s just difficult.”
