Christmas In Chicago

Dashing through the snow
Straining with each panicked breath
Muzzle blasts aglow
Harbingers of death!
Screams and sirens sing
How desperate is my plight
Oh God! Oh God! Please let me live
Through this Chicago night!

Oh Jingle Bells! Shotgun shells!
I just can't get away!
It ain't no fun without a gun
And the gangs want me to play!
Oh Jingle Bells! Shotgun shells!
I just can't get away!
It ain't no fun without a gun
And the gangs want me to play!

A heartwarming tale of Christmas joy in America's third largest city.
43 Shot, 11 Fatally, In Christmas Weekend Shootings In Chicago

CHICAGO (CBS) — The three-day Christmas weekend in Chicago has already become more violent than it was during the entire holiday weekend last year.

Eleven men were killed and at least 32 others have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening, according to Chicago Police.

Last year, a total of 30 people were shot in Chicago over the four-day holiday weekend, leaving six dead.

I'm not sure if you are understanding what I am writing, but... I honestly think these numbers have always been this high, and might even be higher. I don't trust the number providers to not be trying to hide the real numbers, for many and varied reasons. I do think these, current, numbers are more correct, but I don't think they are truly different from previous years. You believe the numbers? I don't. I don't even have a means of finding out. Neither the government nor the media can be trusted.

Other than when it impacts civil parts of the city though, I don't honestly care. This is how they live, choose to live, want to live, and provably have lived for... since you all met those groups. Why you didn't find a different solution has to do with the corruption in politics, not wisdom. Oh well. A few less that the police will have to deal with (or again), and a few more to take their place in prisons... just another form of welfare, really. Exile, permanent.

I don't know how you'd turn the Chicago Police System (partisan with ward bosses, union influence, other political interests, pressure groups, etc.) into something honest and wholesome. That's what you'd need and the PD can't stand up to the corruption that is endemic - the same corruption that sent Obama to the White House.

Once the Police Department works, it can deal with the violence honestly and as Doom suggests, we'd get an accurate view of both the problem and a possible solution(s).

According to the FBI, these numbers used to be higher, much higher back in the 90's. In 1991 Chicago came close to having 1,000 murders (922), but so it was for many cities across the nation.

I feel that as the US population growth dwindled, so did the numbers of savages in that risk taking age group. Now as the savages born outside the US are swamping the nation, the homicides are again increasing. But that's just my opinion.

Our entire history from aspect of life is based upon survival of the fittest. While sad for the victims (children of democrat voter breeders) it is net a good thing to some extent that breeders are being removed. Doubt it will have any significant impact though.
