CHICAGO ISN’T SAFE: ‘Anywhere you think you’re safe, you’re really not’

The pervasive violence in Chicago should cause every reasonable and prudent person to give pause in whether they would continue living there. Certainly for those of us who might consider a trip to Chicago on vacation with our families, the prudent thing would be to travel to a safer city.

How bad is it?

A Chicago cop tells it well: ‘Anywhere you think you’re safe, you’re really not’

This Chicago cop was violently beaten by a gang of thugs while he was off-duty resulting in hearing loss in his left ear, an injured arm and a broken collarbone, shoulder blade, and a rib. He tells it like it is.

People who think that they are safe because they do not live in "those" neighborhoods or "bad areas" are naive. This is the false thinking that you get with the Regressive political approach.

You can always get the Chicago cop’s point of view here: http://truenewsusa.blogspot.com/ - it’s the old Detective Shaved.

I thought there have been some black flash mob lootings and fights on the Near North Side in the past year or so. They are coming up out of the south side and west side to invade other areas.

In a politically correct world, I don’t know what the answer to black flash mob crime and knockout games and such is. We can’t say that they are uncivilized barbarians in our PC culture. We normally don’t see the MSM identify the criminals. They say they are teenagers but don’t mention other characteristics of these people.

Somewhat true. You can still take a vacation to Chicago so long as you stick to the touristy areas - Navy Pier, the museums, Wrigley Field, the downtown area (during daytime). After dark, make sure you are in a hotel out in the suburbs. Naperville, which is about 30 miles south of the city, is an excellent place to stay. It has a done of great restaurants and shops which gives you plenty to do after coming back from a day in the city.

Visiting Chicago is like going on safari with a fresh meat necklace .....the jackals will find you.

Wish the field museum would move to a city that’s not following Detroit down the drain.

If Chicago woke up tomorrow and 95% of “Holders’ People” simply vanished, how safe would Chicago then be??

We all know the answer and we all know who is committing the crimes.

These thugs in Chicago are all paid and protected with your tax dollars. They all get taxpayers handouts for themselves, their baby mommas and their children. Chicago is a one party Democrat city. The thugs and the politicians work together.

That’s a great info source. Where does it come from? I counted 167 Black murders, 42 white murders. Chgo is 32% Black. 30 years ago I bought a house in Oak Park, one block in from the Austin district, up from West Suburban Hospital. Nothing has changed (I moved to Hawaii 27 yrs ago). New Year’s Eve was a hail of gunshots - one came through my neighbor’s car in his garage. I used to date a Chinese girl who lived on Long - parents owned a laundry. Must have been the last non-Blacks in the hood.

It makes me feel so good, that Boeing decided to move its management team from Seattle to Chicago. They deserve it and the State Income taxes there.

In Mississippi we have the right to self defense. We are not Florida. We are a Castle Doctrine State. Our automobles are an extension of our homes. Our Governor carries. I’ll take Mississippi and my CCW and 90% of my fellow Mississippians being armed over any other part of this country.

An old movie has a good line about the underclass: “You think the future can’t cross a bridge?”

To which I would add, go drive through any slum and notice how many cars are parked, many of them nice cars. They WILL be able to reach the suburbs.

Chicago is exactly what the Democrat Party and news media convinced the people that lives there wanted.

And now the State of Florida, with the help of the Democrat Party and news media is trying to turn the entire State into a New York City and Chicago. A place where the law abiding citizen has no right, duty, or means to defend their lives. A place where any individual or group of individuals can take your life and property while you do the only thing you are able to do; beg the not to. A place where an individual or a group of individuals can approach your wife and daughter or both and rape them to their heart's content while the most you can legally do is stand there and wring your hands and plead with them please don't. Oh, afterward, you can dial 911 and they may or may not send a cop out to ask, "What you want us to do?"

It won’t be long before these feral humans will be extending their sphere of influence 30 miles and beyond. Even these suburbs won’t be a safe bet unless you are trained, prepared, and equipped to deal with these ferals.

"A gun obviously didn’t save ths guy. (I assume that off-duty officers are required to carry a firearm in Chicago.)"

As he said, "If you think you're safe anywhere in Chicago, you probably aren't."

Don't ever make the mistake of thinking that just because you have a gun you are automatically safe.

You are right in starting with the "politically correct" comment. Because any approach to this problem has to be politically correct. That's just the way things are in the USA. And it's been that way for some time. Ain't gonna change.

IMHO, there is only one solution to the problem that's both workable and politically correct.

It's said that idle hands are the Devil's workshop. So bring back industry to the cities. Give urban folks access to good, high-paying jobs.

Notice there are no “Hispanic” murders on the list. That is because they are classified as “White” in order to skew the numbers to make it look like “Caucasians” are committing more murders.

We moved from the WDC area last year. While we lived in a “nice” suburb, there were no walls keeping out the ferals (esp at night). And to top it off, the LIBs extended various mass transit option into the suburbs to help the ferals get to you. Enough...move your self out. There is a real life and reasonable people outside these LIB hellholes.
