Meanwhile In Chicago, 120 People Shot In First 10 Days Of 2016

Tyler Durden's picture


Even as Obama takes his anti-gun crusade to new highs with every passing week, having recently started dispensing executive orders, the president conveniently continues to ignore the state of affairs in his native Chicago - a city in which guns are banned - yet where the shooting epidemic has never been worse, and is truly emblematic of the "gun problem" America has.

Judging by the most recent developments, Obama will have nothing to say about Chicago gun violence either during tonight's state of the union address, or ever for that matter, because recent developments are downright disastrous.


According to the Chicago Tribune, following the seven people shot to death and 30 more wounded during the latest weekend, the total number of shootings in the windy city has risen to 120 in just over a week into the new year, according to police.

The fatal shootings included two teens killed by a store clerk during a robbery in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side, and one of three people shot at a party four blocks from Mayor Rahm Emanuel's home.

As the Tribune tabulates as of Monday morning, at least 19 people have been killed in gun violence and at least 101 more have been wounded. This is three times higher than compared to the same period one year ago: in the first 10 days of 2015, "only" nine people were killed and another 31 wounded.

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi released a statement blaming most of the violence on "chronic gang conflicts."

"Every year Chicago Police recover more illegal guns than officers in any other city, and as more and more illegal guns continue to find their way into our neighborhoods." 

So the problem is smuggling of illegal guns, got it. What is the proposed solution?

"So it is clear we need stronger state and federal gun laws," Guglielmi said in the statement.

Because those who illegally procure guns will follow gun purchasing laws, and the only thing preventing them from doing so is not enough laws? One can almost see why Chicago's gun problem is getting worse by the day.

The statement continues:

"So far this year, the majority of the gun violence we've seen are a result of chronic gang conflicts driven in part by social media commentary and petty disputes among rival factions. Despite an overall lack of cooperation from gang members, detectives are working aggressively and making optimistic progress in several cases."

At least 2,986 people were shot in Chicago in 2015. Many more will be shot - by illegally obtained weapons in a city with unprecedented gun control - in 2016.

X dead in Shitcongo!? So..? Are we hoping to get that up to 10X in February?

Imagine the value of X when crack season officially opens in summer, and people can comfortably come outside in numbers?

I care about as much for the body count in Shitcongo as I do for the body count in Mogadishu.

Cannot understand why people remark on it; it's like making a headline about the tide coming in, or a coyote eating a fawn; it's purely a natural occurrence.

They talk about it because they want everyone to see how little we actually care. They like to push their mock outrage to prove themselves morally on the high ground. 


That's how these sad fuckers think. They only care about having some imagined moral high ground, because mock outrage.

My theory is since blacks come from an area of the world that was only recently developed they lack frontal lobe impulse control.  We should be happy to see the Darwinian process in action.  Liberals tell me only idiots believe in god.  So only an idiot would not believe in Darwinian selection right?   I am going to guess being a severe dickhead in the hood reduces life expectancy quite a bit.

I have a Russian friend who says American blacks are selected for being "annoying and too stupid to run away".  His point being that when the slavers came to the village the chief would sell off the lesser desirables.  This include the dumb, undesirable women, annoying, criminal, lazy etc.    Thus he choose from the pool of the annoying that had not decided to make themselves scarce upon first sight of the slavers hitting town.  So they were annoying and so very stupid they did not even realize how annoying they were. ...................Sound like anyone you know?  Sure sounds like Negrius Americanus to me!

These radical Christians  need to be kept from the general population.  Oh wait, this is one of the stories where the majority religion of the perps' country of 'origin' is irrelevant.  My bad.  Been reading so many migrant stories.

(My point is that the religion of perps is irrelevant in SOME migrant stories.  Ethnicity, culture, and mental health/sociopathy, are of course almost always relevant)

As for Chicago, why has no one put up a 'Gun-Free Zone' sign!!?!?!?  Surely that would nip the problem in the bud.  Or maybe an Obama Executive Order?

I've read the criteria for the Darwin Awards at the website.    The majority of the victims here are not worthy of nomination:

"Nominees significantly improve the gene pool by eliminating themselves from the human race in an obviously stupid way. They are self-selected examples of the dangers inherent in a lack of common sense, and all human races, cultures, and socioeconomic groups are eligible to compete. Actual winners must meet the following criteria:

   Out of the gene pool: dead or sterile.
   Astounding misapplication of judgment.
   Cause one's own demise.
   Capable of sound judgment. 
   The event must be true"

First, almost all the victims were first victimized by the Democrat government of Chicago (including POTUS) and the Left in general.  Individually, their most "Astounding misapplication of judgment" was not moving somewhere else.

Gun control and prison (sob) isn't working. 

How many black men must die (sniff) before we bring back "common-sense" solutions like banishment/exile to "traditional" locations such as Africa (Jews), Australia (British criminals), Iraq (Jews), Siberia (kulaks), or elsewhere?

If we can import them, then why can't we export them?

I've been told my whole life Apartheid was just the most heinous of crimes.  Heinous, i tell you!

Well, since then I've cracked a few history books, and let me say definitively: Segregation IS NOT GENOCIDE.  GENOCIDE IS FAR WORSE than segregation. 

People calling for segregation are just logical thinkers who are fed up.   its not an extremist position.   When you behave like Israel and start genociding the people you have segregated, well, then all bets are off.  Thats extremist behavior.

I totally agree that social ostrication and exile/banishment are sorely needed today. The problem is people rely on govt to solve issues instead of ourselves and neighbors. Govt's means are always brutal. Ostrication and banishment need to be handled on the cultural level, not govt level. 

Solution, don't call the cops. Plan, protect yourself, family, and property by yourself or through private contracts. Take care of it yourself. Never ever talk to cops, socially obstinate them. Don't talk to or about politicians either for that matter, and don't show your subservience to evil people by voting for them. Don't sue anyone, use your power in relationships to punish offenders or avoid the situation at all costs. If you can't manage that, cultivate those relationships. 

If people get hurt while you are protecting yourself, don't call the cops! Leave immediately, get out of the country or jurisdiction you are in, and have a lawyer call a doctor or mortuary NOT the police. Tell a priest, move on and don't think about it. Come back in several weeks, several weeks in a hotel on a credit card if you have to is well worth it.

If you can live without the corrupt law enforcement system, help others you are close to do the same. Build relationships of trust and family with your neighbors. We are in this together after all.

Most violence arises from situations that result from govt intrusion. Intrusion into our lives, control of our bodies, control of plants, our jobs and money, our science, healthcare, and schools. They control us through law enforcement officers. Law enforcement are the ones that should be ostracized, and there will be much less violence. Of course, if people do that, the goons will try violence to protect their order of things. They need us nice and docile like. Today, the monopoly of lawfully violence is with the state, and monopolies are NOT sustainable.

Legalize drugs, recognize that people have the right to live their lives as they wish - as long as they do no harm to others - and a lot of the crime & violence disappears. The profit motive disappears.

Since the Deep State is in the drug business and people have been brainwashed to be 'moralists' (minding other peoples' business - especially those they deem are 'having too much fun') - we are a long way off from solving this issue.

Never did see the proof of this claim. And they very apparently don't matter to each other else they'd not be wasting each other over insults to their pride or drug turf.

Seems to me pride would imply productive accomplishments, and those are certainly lacking.
