Forget Ferguson, 244 Teenagers Have Been Shot In Chicago Since Michael Brown Died

Tyler Durden's picture

While the events down in Ferguson play out, back in Chicagoland, HeyJackass reports that the same old bullshit continues day in and day out with nary a peep. In the 107 days since officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18 year old Michael Brown – 12:03pm, Saturday, August 9th – the following stupidity has taken place in Chicago:

  • 155 homicides (74% black males)
  • 725 shot & wounded
  • Six (6) 18 year olds killed: Kawantis Montgomery, Kamaal Burton, Tony McIntos, Alexandra Burgos, Rayvon Little, Johnathan Cartwright
  • 59 18 year olds shot & wounded
  • 29 teenagers (13-19) killed
  • 244 teenagers (13-19) shot and wounded
  • 10 shot (5 killed) by the CPD

Brutal, yet incredibly asinine and absurd to say the least.



So what is it about these stats that hasn’t caused people to lose their collective shit?

After all, there have been plenty of opportunities to march, chant, throw shit, break stuff, come up with a hashtag, etc… in the past few months, not only in Chicago, but all over the nation. So where is the national media? The cable news talking heads? The race pimpin’ super duo of Jesse and Al? The professional agitators and social justice warriors? The exploiting politicians? Almost 900 shootings and homicides in the past three months and not one is worthy of their attention.

Someone from ‘round these parts once said “never let a crisis go to waste”. Apparently these stats aren’t crisis-y enough.

If those black teens were not shot by white police...
Then they might as well have never happened. Ignored.

Black folk need to stop selling drugs and start selling "opium for the masses" like Reverand Gentry here to become the pastor driving around BMW preaching how others should behave.


please. get off the moral high horse and get a real job.

Black Friday sale started earlier in Ferguson this year.

There were 5 "much more important" rabbis killed in Israel.  Nevermind the daily bloodbath in the US or the beheadings by the drug cartels just south of the US border.  It is more important to talk about how the Isralis are having a really bad time of it.  This is actually sick/funny in a "glad its not happening to me" kind of way.

244 teenagers in Chicago have been shot? Those teenagers don't matter to Eric Holder and the radical leftists in the Obama Administration because the shooters weren't white cops. 

Obama and his radical leftist cronies have set race relations back for decades. Just as they've planned. What they've done is right out of the "Rules for Radicals" playbook.

There's an easy way to clear the press & commies (but I repeat myself) out of Ferguson. Just announce they're finding ebola ridden rats in the sewers.

Maybe we should start the rumor ;-)

"radical leftists" very amusing. I hear obama is guest speaker at the next general meeting of the SEP -- that should be fun too.

Sadly, to TPTB, those 244 dead are of little consequence...

The Liberal Progressive establishment's Propaganda Arm, the MSM says all day long how much they care.
And then report naught.

Chicago cops have a century of experience with being corrupt; they know where to back off.

Fergesun cops are newly corrupted by the DHS; they're drunk on violence and power and have no idea how to handle it.

Chicago cops all dressed up in national guard outfits for overtime in Ferguson to play with the latest military grade toys.

As a Chicagoan, this is it.  I know people on the vice squad who openly talk about beatings they've dished out.  But, nothing is reported because the person getting the beating could've gotten major charges instead.  Cops know who the shitheads are.  Just because you have tanks and tear gas doesn't mean it's a good idea to use them on national TV.  Also, notice how the shootings are geographically constrained.  When that flashmob nonsense was hitting white "folks" on the north side of the city, the governor was openly talking about the National Guard being deployed.  Weird.

Exactly how many blacks have the ferguson cops shot thus far? I forget, so please enlighten me.

There are some here drunk on stupidity....or just drunk.

The MSM is concerned with keeping black people in what TPTB think is their proper place.  They will hype the more "defensible" homicides by cop because it will divide the populace, and if there is an over-reaction by the protesters then the broader populace with clamor for MOAR PIGS armed with MOAR WEAPONRY (at more cost to the serfs).  Meanwhile, the MSM will ignore all the "indefensible" homicides by cop, because that might actually unite the under-classes in rallying against the police state, instead of accepting MOAR.

Nailed it. There are protests because .gov wants protests. These protests are doing a dandy job of keeping the issue on race relations (lol) rather than on the murderous police state that works for the banksters/politicians. If .gov actually wanted a productive, law abiding black population, they would have one. They do not want that because then they would not have millions of voters who are dependant on .gov. How long would it take .gov to off Al Sharpton once they gave the order? If .gov didnt want him stirring up race relations, he would be gone tomorrow. Like you said, we need MORE police! MORE welfare! MORE laws!

Of couse, if the FUCKING SHEEPLE, stopped rewarding the MSM with eyeballs and ad revenues when they pulled this shit, it would make much more difficult for the rank and file "reporters" to buy MSM management's justification lines about corporate revenue and market share.

News is what it is.  Facts and objectivity are not bound by revenue potential.  MSM is peddling "story lines" a.k.a ENTERTAINMENT (complete with emotional coasters), it is a RECREATIONAL DRUG, and has nothing to do with "news" or "information". 

EDIT: And anyone who has been around here long enough knows it is not just management at sanctioned MSM organizations that can succumb to the temptations and market pressures...

I guess shitcago's hand gun ban is working out wonderfully.

NOthing can change getting blown away in the windy city.

The bans only keep the guns out of would be victim's hands.

if the USA would just go along with the liberals....we could achieve the same results nationally that Chicago has in their century long monopoly on power.

Less guns = more crime 

More guns = less crime


Every study ever done on guns and crimes have shown this to be true no matter what level or what nation or what time era they've looked at.   It might as well be a mathematical formul at this point, one beyond the comprehension of any liberal.   Even the Fuhrer's own biased team tasked with investigating crime arrived at the same conclusion without stating as such.

AldousHuxley's picture

guns needed to protect society = uncivilized and police and parents not doing their job = 3rd world culture

guns not needed to protect society = group of advanced human beings who value each other


lots of children running around with AK47s in Africa did not lead to less crime.


gun stocks down?

An armed society is a polite society.

Full gun safety and handling education for all children starting as early as your parents want to start you at.  You must complete official courses before graduating high school.  Make it a requirement.

Open carry should be nation-wide for all above 18 years old.  If you're old enough to fight and die for a treasonous, scumbag, lying government, then you're old enough to open carry anywhere in America. 

If you aren't old enough, are too old, or just don't want to arm yourself, then of course that's fine...Don't'll be surrounded all the time by a whole lot of good people all the time who will be able to protect your ass in 2 seconds flat if need be. 

Quicker protection than any cops would be able to provide. 

Will there be violence, shootings, and senseless killings still?  Yep, you bet there will be...but that's life.  But at least you'll have as good of a chance to win a gun fight with a criminal if you're armed and a damn near expert at using your fire arm, right???

Unarmed, you won't stand a chance.  That's just the way it is.

US&A a polite society? Er no. Check Japan. 

AldousHuxley's picture

so you like paying twice? one for police pension, second for your private arsenal? 

obama for one doesn't carry a gun. he's got other suckers taking the bullet for him funded by tax payers.


Oldwood's picture

So I guess you aren't saving for retirement either, social security is good enough for you?

Syrin's picture

Hey f'head, EVERY study on the subject ARRIVES at the SAME CONCLUSION, so while it offends your liberal view of how the world SHOULD be, the rest of us prefer to live in reality. Hey shit for brains, how in the hell is a 120 college co-ed supposed to defend herself from a 200 pound gang banger waiting for her at her car after a night class? Call some limp wristed mother fucker like yourself? Call the police? WHY ?!?!? BECAUSE THEY HAVE GUNS YOU MORONIC FUCK TARD. Why in the hell do you think the American Fuhrer surrounds himself with guys carrying guns? Because he plans an armed invasion of a local Starbucks? No shit head, it's because he uses them for protection, and EVERY STUDY SHOWS THE SAME THING YOU FUCKING DENIER. I truly hope you post a GIANT sign in your yard proudly stating GUN FREE HOUSE.

You know the ONLY three commonalities to every last mass killing in the past 20 years?

1) Shooter is a liberal
2) Shooter is on psych drugs
3) Gun free zone

Mass shootings CANNOT happen in a zone where others can fire back. People have time to flee while they shoot back at the killer or the killer gets dropped like third period French. You liberal f'heaqds truly deserve what's coming

Yeah, last time I checked, Japan has been committing slow-motion suicide for 40 years. Not a great example of a healthy society. But, they are indeed "polite" about it.

"Full gun safety and handling education for all children starting as early as your parents want to start you at.  You must complete official courses before graduating high school.  Make it a requirement"


And do you recommend this should apply to all countries in the world?    Or is the USA some sort of 'special case'?

AldousHuxley's picture

USA is a special case of a country full of idiots due to not having to produce or compete in the world marketplace for generations.


Given all the morons out there ZH readers, do you really want to give a gun in the hands of retards out there? You are going to have crazy unstable mofos shooting at each other for even the most trivial stupid shit. 


and worst of all YOU get to pay increased healthcare costs to patch up these morons with guns.


Most of the gun owners are bunch of rednecks who buy into gun protection while they had their manufacturing union rights eroded in the red states. GUN RIGHTS = distraction. 



Catflappo's picture

And was my question rhetorical?

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

The rest of the world can go fuck itself. WE make our own rules here. If we had kicked out the international socialists and international bankers and league of nations/united nations twats a hundred years ago when they started fucking up our country, we'd have been a whole lot better off now.

nmewn's picture

Where to begin with this bit of nonsense, well why not with your hidden premise?

"Given all the morons out there ZH readers, do you really want to give a gun in the hands of retards out there?"

The giving a gun, doesn't this imply someone else has authority over it to give?  Who would that be, the government? Is it really your position that the "crazy old widow woman" down at the end of the block will just have to call 911 and WAIT for the authorities to arrive AFTER she's been brutalized and robbed so the proper paperwork can be filed?

AldousHuxley's picture

and you think police will just dearm themselves?

they will use more tax dollars to militarize their outfit.


nice expensive neighborhoods where the 0.1% percenters live, they don't want to carry fire arms around when they go jogging. only for urban ghettos....

nmewn's picture

You just went from red states & rednecks NOT holding up their end of the homocide rate to blue states & people in government subsidized housing (aka ghetto's) who ARE holding up the homocide rate to the rich who pay people with guns to guard them while they jog, so I'm not really sure (again) why I (in your opinion) as a middle class American, I have to submit to anyone or anything for MY RIGHT to defend myself and my family.

I will not.

And I don't expect (nor do I advocate for) any innocent finding themselves in subsidized housing or a single wide on the back forty of momma's lot or a perfumed dandy jogging in his subdivision to have to comply and be subservient either.

In fact, I advocate for the exact opposite.

Syrin's picture

Hey shit head, there have been 17 GENOCIDES in the past century. Know what they ALL had in common? Gun confiscation. I truly hope they gas you first at your local FEMA camp show you can show us what you limp wristed defenseless douche bags sound like when you go to meet Stalin.
