Slow weekend. The circus must have been in town.
The abortionists couldn't be more delighted. This is just planned parenthood for post-born and grown up fetuses. M. Sanger performs her dance of approval in hell.
It’s not gun violence; it’s criminal violence.
with gunshot wounds to the buttocks and the groin,
One for the Shot-In-The-Junkometer and one for the Shot-In-The-Assometer.
Thank goodness this isn’t a quagmire or else they would be talking about every night on the TV News.

That’s all? Emanuel’s scolding must be working.
Democrat controlled city no change par.
You hear often how someone just walks up to a car and starts shooting. There's no backstory to it though.
BTW I'm visiting family in Western TN over Labor Day weekend. Normally, my drive takes me through Chicago or I-294. I'm bypassing Chicago altogether and going through Rockford instead.
only 2 killed is quite low for a summer weekend in Chicago.
Did they have heavy rain?

3 arrested in connection to shooting on 25th Street in Rockford
Chicago’s a democrat hellhole... a little worse than most democrat hellholes.

Most of 'em were performers - or in cages.
While spike lee and al Sharpton yuk it up about Trump. The hypocrisy is undeniable, they are only concerned about other blacks when a white cop shoots
You touched on the subliminal propaganda. How many were killed in :knife violence" or "car violence".
The brain-washing continues. Play the First-Thing-That-Comes-To-Your-Mind game with someone.
Say "knife" or "car" and the answers will be all over the map. Now say "gun" and the odds are "violence" will be the answer - even from gun owners.
Flip it around and say "violence" and the response will be "gun".
All part of the agenda.
The Real Reason for Chicago’s Deadly Crime wave.
But If you were somehow to identify and arrest every single one of the shooters involved in the weekend violence, you would no doubt discover that nearly all of them came from homes with absent fathers, and that nearly all of them had been previously arrested for violent crime. (They wont come close to arresting all of the shooters, or even a quarter of them; the website Heyjackass.com reports Chicago P.D.s murder clearance rate for 2018 so far is 14.6 percent.)
As Rahm Emanuel knows, to take a stand against hit-and-run fatherhood is to cast blame on a significant portion of the Chicago electorate. Whats more, to do so would also cast blame on the leftist policies that gave rise to the welfare state and to which he owes his political career. ---------------------------------
Great link... I have a friend - retired police chief from one of our large American cities and he's 'liberal as the day is long'... you're right about the incentive pattern.
A workable solution to 'Chicago Type Slaughters' is to switch incentives. This will seem strange but it's workable: Pay for all birthing costs of "first child" born of married parents in a city like Chicago... rich, poor, middle income - all 'first' children of married couples... Then enforce all child support laws AND give a thousand dollar bonus to couples on their third anniversary. Culture changes will follow the actions.
“Slow weekend. The circus must have been in town.”
In the Black Precincts of Chicago “The Circus” is always “in town!” It’s the Black Circus of Murder and Mayhem! During the week, the “effort” turns to “replacement procreation.” What an absolutely sad and totally unnecessary cycle of behavior. And then there’s this “naturalized citizen” from The Congo, who slit his kids throats this past week. WTF is wrong with these people, and why have we allowed them to immigrate here?
Why is any of this news? This is the new normal. Chicagoans just have to suck it up.
