America's Urban War Zone: Baltimore Doubles Chicago's Homicide Rate In 2017

Via StockBoardAsset.com,

Back in June, President Trump used Twitter to officially announce America’s urban crisis.

He hit the ground running calling out the death and destruction in Chicago.

Trump made it clear that he was “sending in Federal help” to contain the dying city.

Since then, Trump’s focus has transitioned on to an international stage with North Korea’s ‘rocket man’ in a war of words battle.

The geopolitical tensions on the Korean Peninsula and elsewhere have distracted this administration from conquering the real out of control war on city streets.

According to The Daily Caller, Baltimore‘s homicide rate is now doubled Chicago’s in 2017.

Essentially, residents in Baltimore are twice as likely to be shot than Chicagoans. As the battlefield continues to expand, President Trump has yet to mention the chaos in Baltimore just 38 miles North of the White House.

As The Daily Caller points out, the soaring violence in Baltimore is occurring in a much smaller city of 621,000, when compared to Chicago of 2,700,000.

Chicago has suffered 503 gun homicides so far in 2017. With a population of over 2.7 million, the gun homicide rate is at just over 18 people per 100,000 residents.

 

Baltimore, however, has suffered 275 gun homicides with a population of just over 621,000, putting the homicide rate at more than 44 per 100,000.

 

The city is on track to break its all-time murder record originally set in 1992, when Baltimore had 100,000 more residents.

The author made a very interesting point, both cities are “long-standing Democratic strongholds”. Not surprising, Baltimore hasn’t had a republican mayor since 1947 and or voted Republican in a presidential election since 1956. On top of failed liberal policies, de-industrialization has stripped the cities of productivity and forced an alarming inequality gap in education, jobs, health, and wealth of residents.

For example, Baltimore has a population of 621,000 and out of that 63% are African American. In highlights below, 1/3 of the African American population has a net worth of zero, which equates to 130,000 residents. Opportunity for most citizens in the city are limited giving way to violent crime and an explosion in homicides.

Ever since the increased scrutiny of police following the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri has led to an increased crime rate in both Baltimore and Chicago. In particular, Baltimore’s police department is under heavy scrutiny for planting drugs at crime scenes.

As the social contract between residents and police crack, this gives way to the ‘Ferguson effect’ of increased turmoil in inner cities.

Shown by The Economist, the Ferguson effect demonstrates how homicides in Baltimore have surged…

Perhaps President Trump was on to something in June when he called out Chicago’s urban war zone. Unfortunately, geopolitical tensions on the Korean Peninsula is of a much higher priority to this administration, as the real battlefield on America’s city streets goes unnoticed.

Don't worry about that. Bill gates will find a way to sterilze them to prevent overpopulation. I wonder if the democrats are still totaly in the bag for the Sanger black extermination protocall, or are their votes now worth more than ending their lives? If you think I'm making this up, you don't know history!!

I give a fuck about all the money wasted, corruption encouraged, and destruction of America's civic spaces for the sake of liberated farm animals.Kobe Beef's Urban Renewal Plan calls for the sterilization of all welfare recipients, followed by a transfer to a Welfare Reservation (HUD housing only available on Federal Lands), and the immediate execution of any confirmed gang member convicted of a violent felony. We will stop the cycle of violence by ceasing to subsidize its parasite mothers and eliminating its predator fathers. We will reverse the destruction of our cities by moving the destroyers where they can do no harm.Fifty years of crime, corruption, and destruction is enough. Fifty years and trillions of dollars did not deliver the Great Society we were promised. Giving our best to the worst has only dragged us down. We will change our failed policies, and bring hope to America's benighted public spaces.Vote Kobe Beef, and the niggers will be killing niggers somewhere else!(applause) http://gulfcoastcommentary.blogspot.jp/2016/07/what-havent-black-people…

Dumb white American males support these thugs with their NFL, NBA and NCAA fan dom.Many of these morons like Texans, who love their Trayvons, say watch college or high school.  Idiots supporting just younger thugs.I want to see the NFL, NBA and NCAA die. I want to see the tribe owning billionaire owners broke.Myra Kraft the wife of Patriots owner has 4 sons. She said they would fight for Israel in a war but not Amerika.http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2014/01/22/patriots-owners-wife-sa… her sons will get a chance someday.  My guess is her sons will shit in their pants when they come up against Hezbollah.  2001 and 2006 - Hezbollah showed that the IDF is a paper army.

A liberals wet dream is what that city is.An ignorant population of niggers conditioned to loaf around and resort to crime for generations to come, thereby forcing govt to get larger and larger, awarding itself more powers while setting cronies up with huge pensions, all the while feeding the liberal and msm raciscm narrative to marginalize white america even further. Working exactly as planned, just ask Rahm. Whats not to like?
