Parts of Chicago are more dangerous than Iraq. So far this year, 3000 people have been shot in the city, most of them in a few small parts of the city where the drug trade is rampant.

Chicago passes another grim milestone: More than 3,000 shot this year - Chicago Tribune

Doctors in the city are good at putting people back together, so only 500 people have died so far - but both the number of shootings and the number of dead for 2016 have surpassed the total for 2015.



The victims include 30 kids younger than 13. The population of Chicago is 2.7 million, on a per capita basis this would be the equivalent of 20 people being shot in Ireland per day.

Its amazing how little attention this is getting. Its not even the top story on the Chicago Tribune.

Another Democrat run city, quelle surprise.

Saying that the prohibition on drugs has long fuelled the murder rate in America.

Could this be the reason why some houses are less than US$5000 to buy? 3 bedroom, garden, garage...

Especially since the President himself is from Chicago and he couldn't give a sh1t - not being a very PC cause. Far more 'cool' is to demonstrate outrage for the tiny number of black people killed by cops while protecting the community all over the US.

Anywhere in the US where whites are a minority is a toilet. Detroit, Baltimore, St Louis, Memphis etc

Just a reality.

A lot of democratic controlled cities are like war zones , the only policy they have is welfare state stuff and telling everyone they are victims who can do nothing about their circumstances only vote democratic and keep the welfare money flowing.

Where is Jesse Jackson , AL Sharpton etc when it comes to black on black massacre's as is happening in Chicago every weekend. Too busy blaming whitey for everything.

Even though their lives are made a misery by organized crimes, most people in the large cities will continue to vote Democrat. As far as I'm concerned, they made their own bed, they can lie in it.

Look at Detroit and Baltimore. Those used to be really beautiful cities until they started declining in the '60s and '70s. As soon as the white population dips below a certain percentage, it's lights out and the city begins to resemble a bombed out warzone.

Whether that fact is racist or not, it's a reality. Anywhere in the United States where there's a non-white majority is a hellhole.

All of the US would be like this now had the liberal nonsense of the 60s and the early 70s not been nipped in the bud; initially by RMN and then Reagan. Supported by big city mayors who had balls like Guiliani. NYC was once worse than Chicago, but in NY they had an administration and PD who gave a fk.

Jackson is a scumbag who has contempt for the black people who have to endure the horrors wrought by the unholy alliance of shysters like him playing the race card, and the Democrats.

NY is headed back that way under DeBlasio. I hope he is a one termer.

BLM and other like minded groups have been successful in pushing back on the police but at a cost of rising crime. The stop and frisk stuff is way down as is the police presence and consequently the crime has gone up. Something of a pyrrhic victory.

Had noticed that. Am heading over in November - hoping Mets are in the Series (becoming more possible by the day!) - and some chums were telling me that place I stayed last time - mid west 90s - is not as safe as it used to be.

I bet if you read an article on this in the pozzed Irish media, they would blame it all on guns.. 'It's the guns... if only there was sensible gun control all of this would be avoided.. Detroit would be nirvana if it wasn't for all the guns..'.

Don't like the facts huh?

It idiotic liberals like you that do more harm to minorities than anyone else by trying to bury the hard truth.

Besides, race baiting is the number one weapon used by the left.

Thousands of black people are murdered by other black people. 3/4 black people - usually scumbags - are killed by cops.

Clearly the lives of burglars and muggers Matter a lot more than decent black people trying to survive amid utter mayhem and depravity.

Cornell West of BLM was asked recently why there were no protests about what was happening to black people in the inner cities. He was totally struck for words. Then again he is unlikely ever to set foot in the Bronx or Oakland.
