Special Report: Part 1 of 2 The Truth About Chicago’s Crime Rates The city’s drop in crime has been nothing short of miraculous. Here’s what’s behind the unbelievable numbers.
It was a balmy afternoon last July when the call came in: Dead body found inside empty warehouse on the West Side.

"The link between drugs and crime, including violent crime, would be hard to overstate in Chicago. Eighty-six percent of adult males arrested in Chicago last year tested positive for drug use. Chicago, with a population of 2.7 million, had 506 murders in 2012, the highest per capita among the four most populous U.S. cities."

The Chicago Way. Lie, cheat, fudge and spin..
They just want to persuade us that things are good.
The medias creed, “Tell ‘em what you want them to hear”.
Corruption in Chicago?
Hell you say! I don’t believe it. The lower crime stats HAS to be because of strict gun laws and all the community organizing that The Super Fantastic All Graceful and Honorable King Obama put into place.
The writer of this story is obviously racist.
In fairness, New York lies even more than Chicago.
Someone broke into my ‘86 Buick in Tampa. They’d buggered the key hole so they could turn it and ripped the wires lose from the starter switch and obviously tried to start it. The investigating officer said, “Well, nobody steals this model so it’s obviously not an attempt to steal a car. It’s just malicious damage.” When he left, my sister a 20 year cop said, “They’ve told him to hold down the stolen car stats. So, he moved it into a different category.”
Years ago Marion Barry, mayor of DC, was upset about it being the murder capital of the US. He asked how the FBI got the data and was told it was self-reported. He ordered that from then on anything less than (as I recall) three bullets was a suicide.
I simply don’t believe anything the government says.
To quote a formally famous writer whose name is no longer allowed to be mentioned in correct society since he used now forbidden words.
The word on the street is that the Chicago VA administrator came over from the police department after she retired. Her work led to a bonus all around and an increase in her second pension.

JUNE 25, 2014
An honor student who marched in the Obama inaugural parade is shot dead on a Chicago street. (The Irony!)
I drive into and out of Chicago everyday - the traffic alone is dangerous...and there have been times I was forced off the Interstate due to wrecks - having to drive through the south side at 76th street - down to 95th - just to get back back on to South Shore and onto I-90/94 again...It’s like driving through Baghdad in - low on ammo, no commo, and fuel is shrinking...time to GET OUT!
Had I known what I know now - I would not have come up here to work...
There is a site that tries to keep an honest accounting of the violence in Chicago, take a look at heyjackass.com for a good breakdown of what has happened.
I remember - I think it was in MAY 2014 - 9 people were shot - some died in just a weekend...
I just took a look at heyjackass.com and so far during the 4th of July weekend.
Shot and killed = 2
Shot and wounded = 19

This makes no sense. A guy caught with 14 bags of heroin, trying to sell to 2 undercover cops, had conviction overturned.
He had prior convictions, http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Heroin-conviction-is-reversed-5600943.php
Smells fishy - and has nothing to do with the lake...
Corruption and liberal politics has Chicago in $63 BILLION in DEBT!!!
Again, I’m leaving soon and getting out of Chicagoland...should never came up here to work...it’s crazy...the professional people I work with are great - but the politics and corruption are out of hand...
I will say, that the street people that hang out on Madison are very respectful and nice...one cane get the morning Street Wise or the World’s Finest Chocolate - with a catchy tune for $1!
Guess what happened in 2008?
Islamic Revolutionaries (Al Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, the Taliban etc. ) are essentially soldiers for the heroin cartels. Obama has been helping them, but why?
"Afghanistan is responsible for about three-quarters of the worlds heroin production, with much of it being cultivated in the Helmand and Kandahar provinces in the south of the country. However, the US has concentrated most of its efforts in the east of Afghanistan, which has relatively little poppy production"
"Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction Study makes grim reading, with opium poppy cultivation increasing by over a third, while the country now has about 1.3 million heroin users. This is a ten-fold increase compared to 2005, when around 130,000 people were using the drug."
I know for a fact that Iran funded Chavez' campaign in Venezuela. Chavez turned Venezuela into the world's biggest drug distributor. Iran, Russia, and China are all slave nations with epidemic heroin addiction problems. A symptom of being a narco nation.

There has indeed been a marked resurgence of Iranian state sponsorship of terrorism over the past 18 months. But as the new Nisman report drives home, heres an even more disturbing fact Iran has run intelligence networks in the United States backyard to sponsor, foster and execute terrorist attacks for decades." http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/03/world/americas/iran-latin-america/
Thanks for posting this infuriating story. It was too long to finish right now but I want to read every word. So far at least 3 brutal murderers have been given a “don’t worry we won’t even arrest you even if we know who you are” card by the Chicago PD.
Sounds like the VA scandal. Keep fudging the data to get your promotion.
Eventually they will get to the point that there will be a negative murder rate.
I just think it is despicable. The public employee unions have to be eliminated there is no accountability.
The web site heyjackass.com is now reporting:
Shot and killed = 3
Shot and wounded = 34
For this 4th of July weekend, with more to come...
And you can bet those numbers will be fudged come Monday.
The Saturday overnights are on from heyjackass.com are in:
Shot and killed = 9
Shot and wounded = 41
Simply amazing, being from the Detroit area, this makes me feel not so bad about Detroit.
