Chicago has become the city of blacks murdering blacks both in the streets and in the abortion meat mills, and unless and until they get strong, moral families back into the neighborhoods again, the situation will continue to deteriorate. The liberal-progressive leftist Democrats who have ruled Chicago for the past 80-something years, ought to be ashamed of themselves for policies that have turned a large portion of fellow citizens into nothing less than feral street apes.
Early in his first term Obama sent ‘My People’ Holder and ‘Jump Shot’ Duncan back to the windy city to fix the education, gang, and violence problems, after some very young black kid was beaten to death with a 2×4 by a couple of young thugs who, as the young boy’s bad luck would have it, were also black.
‘My People’ and ‘Jump Shot’ went to Chicago and did exactly what became the two-term pattern of the Obama regime – spend as much money as possible at taxpayer expense, talk a lot while saying nothing, accomplish nothing other than making things even worse, then have Obama go to Big Main Media and crow about his success, accomplishments, and legacy.
As Daniel John Sobieski puts it in the opener to his piece in today’s American Thinker:
President Obama will give his farewell and good riddance speech on January 10 in Chicago, the town where the community organizer-in-chief began his political rise. He will attempt once again to cement his legacy by recreating history in his image. He will make his speech against the background of what is arguably the world’s most beautiful skyline and the world’s most hideous violence.
Chicago, one of the toughest gun control cities in the United States, ended 2016 with 762 homicides, (updated to 795 as you see on the chart below) the most in two decades and more than Los Angeles and New York City combined. While President Obama has addressed every mass shooting as another reason for stricter gun control, he has little to say about the carnage in his hometown, and it is not likely he will address it in his self-serving and narcissistic farewell speech. President-elect Donald Trump has, tweeting on Monday night, “Chicago murder rate is record setting — 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016,” Trump tweeted. “If Mayor can’t do it he must ask for Federal help!”
A striking and troublesome number that is overlooked in the article is the number of gang members in Chicago. According to law enforcement there are 150,000 active gang members in Chicago. Repeat – That’s ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND, which would be a sizable army for any nation on the planet. Obviously the number of guns in Chicago isn’t the problem, the number of gang members is, especially when you discover that one of the thugs has been arrested 45 times. That in itself tells you everything you need to know. Chicago is “lawless” and until that changes the carnage will continue.
Black voters in Chicago need to hold black elected Democrats accountable for ending the killing in their neighborhoods. Decades of Democrat rule have led to a city broken financially and wracked by murder. Rudy Giuliani took the murder rate in New York City, from 2,300 murders yearly down to below 300 annually. If Giuliani can do this in New York there is no reason Chicago can’t accomplish the same feat. The problem is however, that Rudi Giuliani was a super-competent Mayor; Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel is barely within view.
Finally, Chicago and other big Democrat-run cities are simply vote farms for the Democrat party. The blacks get welfare and affirmative action and vote Democrat. Neither the Black leadership nor BLM nor the Democrat party care about crime, so why should anyone else? If Chicago Blacks are tired of crime they need to stop voting for the policies that encourage its growth.
Chicago, IL, as corrupt as ever, continues to deteriorate, with their citizens continuing to leave in droves…
More from Daniel John Sobieski and “Addressing Chicago Violence” …
Chicago does indeed need federal help, particularly in the area of federal prosecution of gun crimes. As Investor’s Business Daily has noted, a recent study showed that despite rising murders and gang violence, Chicago ranked dead last in federal gun crime prosecutions:
A murdered Chicago teen’s mother attends the president’s speech on gun control, not knowing federal gun-crime prosecutions have in fact dropped on his watch — with the Windy City bringing up the rear.
Cleopatra Cowley-Pendleton, the mother of murdered 15-year-old Chicago teen Hadiya Pendleton, was one of 20 mothers who lost children to criminal violence who were at the White House last Thursday to hear President Obama speak once again on the need for gun control.
Obama met with her and some of the others in a small group before his formal remarks and told them “how serious this issue really is and something needs to be done about it,” she said.
But President Obama did not tell this group that Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) shows that the Northern Illinois district ranked 90th out of 90 in prosecutions of federal weapons crimes per capita.
David Burnham, co-director of TRAC, states their analysis says that according to case-by-case U.S. Justice Department information obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, there were 52 federal gun prosecutions in Illinois North (Chicago) in 2012, or 5.52 per million in population.
By this measure, compared with the 90 federal judicial districts in the U.S., the prosecution rate in Chicago was the lowest in the country.
