most violent day in 60 years in Chicago

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 6/9/2020 4:25:01 AM

A hardworking father killed just before 1 a.m. A West Side high school student murdered two hours later. A man killed amid South Side looting at a cellphone store at 12:30 p.m. A college freshman who hoped to become a correctional officer, gunned down at 4:25 p.m. after getting into an argument in Englewood. While Chicago was roiled by another day of protests and looting in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, 18 people were killed Sunday, May 31, making it the single most violent day in Chicago in six decades, according to the University of Chicago Crime Lab. The lab’s data doesn’t go back further than 1961.  Correction **

Insanity. More black lives that don't matter I guess. From the article it would seem that the victims are black, most killed in the violent riots triggered by George Floyd's death.

It's so sad but bound to get worse as the left blames bad cops and systemic racism. How about trying what has worked in the past - pro-active or "broken windows" policing? Instead the left tries the opposite while blaming systemic racism. Blighted communities and poverty exist because of crime, not vice-versa. While Trump creates "opportunity zones", the left creates tragedy zones.

Clearly the only solution to all these murders is to get rid of the Chicago police department.

As another LDotter has coined it, ChiCongo. Welcome to the United States of Africa thanks to the Leftist Communists and their Party Organs in the MSM who have stooped to the lowest level and elevated fringe group, like BLM and Antifa, whose ties are to Communists outside this country. In our past we had an FBI who would police these groups and arrest them to keep society safe, but that was pre-Obama, Community Organizer in Chief, who has put his seal of approval on BLM and made sure the FBI from top to mid-level has Obama holdovers ready to protect "his legacy" for years to come. President Trump, please begin your famous "Apprentice" firings of evildoers in the FBI/DOJ/CIA, immediately.

Why are no media outlets covering this? This is a huge story. No one, including conservative pundits, talk about the consistently outrageous murder rate in Chicago. Hannity should start a daily body count. Conservatives should not allow this to continue to fly under the radar. They need to broadcast this! It nukes the liberal narrative, including tougher gun laws, yet the story is ignored (including by the Chicago Tribune today - nothing).Thank you Lucianne! I hope DJT tweets about it.

This is what happens when the police are distracted, and some people think eliminating them is a good idea which is good for minorities.

I grew up 40 miles north of Chicago in Libertyville. In the 1950s and 1960s, northern Illinois was a fine place to live and grow up in. Youth sports were plentiful and there was a lot to do. Going to the north side where my grand parents lived for an occasional sleep over was a favorite. But, Chicago since the 1970s has been slowly but, surely dying on the vine. Entirely due to political corruption, crime, and dim leadership. The projects have become a social wasteland, a mini-Venezuela, you might say. Chicago is broke. The schools are a disaster. As a state, Illinois remains on the brink of financial collapse. Such is socialism.

So far this year Chicago has had 1308 shot of which 238 has died, mostly Black. Chicago doesn't exist to the MSM. 1308 shot and Chicago is not a declared war one.

How can this be true...you are not even allowed to own a gun in Chicago, so how on earth did all of these people get shot. /s Also, Rev. Phleger (you all remember him) -- you've been there FOREVER, supposedly dedicating your life to ending "systemic racism" in Chicago...either you have no idea what you're doing or you are part of the problem b/c you continue to enable this horrible circle of violence. Whitey has nothing do with what is happening in Chicago. The black community needs to look internally.

In Chicago, black lives don't matter (BLDM) as long as blacks do the killing. In fact, no life matters. Systemic racism? Maybe a few bad apples among the police, but let a white person take a stroll through parts of Chicago and you will witness systemic racism! Why are there no-go areas of the city? Bad apples among the police? They should be identified and eliminated. Get rid of the union and let Chiefs fire bad apples. All lawbreakers are bad apples. Of course lawbreakers would like to see police defunded and eliminated. Sure, eliminate police and let the criminals police the neighborhoods. Back to the mafia days, when you had to pay for ''protection'' or else your business or home would be destroyed! That will really make people happy!

Paywall, so I can't see where these crimes are taking place. But I don't need to. On the north side of Chicago, luxury high rise apartments are going up everywhere. People are out jogging or walking their dogs. There is a line to get into the Whole Foods. There is no fear of street crime or getting shot. All of the crime is in the south and west sides, where the population is majority black. Our black mayor and her black police chief have done nothing to stem the violence there. Many people are just resigned to it. One thing is certain. Without more, not less, police presence the situation cannot get any better.

I wonder how many people get up in the morning now realizing that they have been scammed by Antifa and feral blacks for two weeks? They look around them at the burned out city blocks and the depression must weigh very heavy. This was not the revolution of which they dreamed and those without police departments will be feeling especially foolish.

The one thing that is very real in the black community that the black community, Democrats, and the enemedia refuse to face, protest, or even mention: "systemic thugism." In fact, its even glorified in their rap music (demeaning women and glorifying violence, especially against cops) and and the behavior of their athletes. The NFL is even going to officially join them now...thus, the new title coming in 2020, "NFL - No Fans Left."

But nowhere does the article say it: NONE of the shootings were by police. There hasn't been a police shooting in Chicago in 3 months. However, YTD in Chicago 239 people have been shot and killed. Of these, 72% were black, 18% were Hispanic. Only 3 were killed by police and NONE were unarmed. Nationwide, in 2019 only 9 unarmed black men were killed by police officers. A young black man in America is FIVE TIMES more likely to be struck by lightening (49 per year) than to be killed by a cop (9). And in Chicago, his chances of being shot by a cop while unarmed are even less (virtually nil). America has a culture problem, not a race problem. There is a subculture of promiscuity, illegitimacy, ignorance, violence, and failure that cuts a wide streak through the black community and it is glamorized and popularized. It used to be countered by the presence of tens of thousands of blue collar and trades jobs, but when the steel mills and auto plants and factories closed, there was little left to keep it in check. Until this culture of failure is addressed nothing will change. The South Side doesn’t need community centers and Obama libraries. It needs private sector jobs and that means factories. https://heyjackass.com/

A little preview of what life could become, particularly in major urban areas, after the police are defunded or simply disbanded. This is precisely what the Left wants to make of your reality and mine, in their effort to motivate us to vote for more government.

This illustrates the total and absolute hypocrisy of the BLM movement. Thes 18 don't matter one bit because they were black on black killings is a city where they are all racist and as long as they kill each other then there is no systemic racism. It is totally cool acceptable and in their world totally normal. These are statistical numbers and have no impact. If it was white men killing black men, you would see them burning and looting 24 hours a day. There will be no 18 memorials on live TV with Biden Romney and Hillary showing up eulogizing how wonderful these young people were. How wonderful they all were. How they all had plans to graduate from college and become engineers doctors lawyers and astronauts and work at their local senior centers and volunteer at food banks and tutor young black children in math and science. None of that. Because those black lives don't matter worth a crap because they didn't lose their lives at the hands of a white cop. Pound sand BLM.

Posted by MissMolly 6/10/2020 4:22:17 AM Post Reply
The hot protest slogan and hashtag of the moment is “Defund the Police.” At times, it’s also framed as a call to abolish or disband the police. Ordinary speakers of the English language would naturally assume, listening to people chant “defund the police” in the streets, carry “defund the police” signs, and literally paint “defund the police” on the streets of D.C., that such people mean “defund the police.” But not our media! There’s been an immediate rush to write pieces explaining that, of course, “defund the police” does not actually mean “defund the police.”

Kudos to the Trump Department of Justice for not letting Prince Andrew worm his way out of answering questions about his long relationship with the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. The DOJ is invoking Britain’s treaty obligations as it demands the prince be made available. Prosecutors for the Southern District of New York bypassed Buckingham Palace to file a “mutual legal assistance” request for assistance in a criminal investigation to the UK Home Office in order to force the royal to testify, The Sun reported. Andrew’s lawyers pretend he’s made multiple offers to talk — as if the feds would go to these lengths

Nearly 12 years have elapsed since the night in October 2008 when Barack Obama told a crowd of his supporters in a speech at the University of Missouri that they were “five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” You can turn on your TV and see the result: Race riots have devastated cities across the country, a disillusioned generation of youth expressing themselves in a criminal spree of violent rage inspired by the failure of Obama’s promise. Of course, liberals blame these “mostly peaceful protests” on President Trump, but let them ponder this question: How could Trump ever have been elected if Obama had been successful

We all know the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes. It is not just a children’s story. Rather, it is an eternal story about human nature. If people are surrounded by a mass or a mob who speak nonsense as a Truth — with a capital “T” — then perfectly sensible people who internally know better will fall into line and babble the same “Truth.” For a reality check and sanity in the public arena, it ultimately often takes a little kid who simply has not been taught social conformity and political correctness to look and say “But this ‘Truth’ simply is not true.”

He doesn’t want them to say they care about him as a person, he wants them to do something practical for the cause.

Romney said he is working with several Republican colleagues on legislation to “make some changes to the way we do our policing” in an effort to crack down on aberrant officers who violate civil rights or use excessive force against people of certain races. But Romney said he didn’t march for the cause Sunday because of politics but because he felt it was his moral duty
