Interesting Take on Violence

An interesting article in Business Insider.

  • Things are pretty grim in Chicago following its deadliest summer in recent memory.

    By Oct. 21, Chicago had recorded 435 murders, ahead of 339 in New York and 241 in Los Angeles. The Windy City has the highest murder rate of all Alpha world cities, according to NBC Chicago.

    And while things are finally starting to slow down, the mood in the city definitely isn't great.

    As an Illinois ex-pat living in New York and looking on at one of my favorite cities from afar, I have to wonder, how did we get here?
The linked article points to numerous examples of  how Rahm and McJerseyShore lost 2012.

And it comes on the heels of this Sun Times headline yesterday:
This on a Saturday, completely discounting Saturday night and all day Sunday upcoming.

    This Mayor and Superintendant has no clue about how to deal with the violence in Chicago, no coherent strategies. One reason is they both have no real connection to Chcago and its communities, neighborhoods or environment and the conditions that surround it. Remember their departures are imminent sooner or later, we will be left to deal with it all, while they go on to greener pastures while padding their resumes.

    Laugh Rahm, laugh!

    You DID say you were "gonna stick it in the Cops ear," right?

    The catered to constituents who ARE the NEW & NUMEROUS lords and masters of this city, chuckled with glee along with Rahm.

    The alderwhores tittered, stepped on the backs of each other's shoes and elbowed the shit out of each other when the TV lights came on...

    The pantyless, leaking form every orfice news media reached back, grabbed their backsides, aimed at The Police and let fly with another funky crime against journalistic integrity... As is their wont and peculiar habit in Chicago.

    We took Rahm's measure long ago and found him lacking...

    The North Shore Shit-Ass has nothing in common with the man who has the cares and concerns of keeping HIS OWN FAMILY fed, safe, sheltered and out of reach of the ever grasping patronage army of Revenue'ers and the predations of Dude.

    As the old folks from another time would've done about Rahm when his Dr. Bojank herbal medicine & snake oil show rolled into town?

    Tar + Feathers + A honest man having real hard times & no whiskey to ease his pain ass-whoopin'(lasts all day and into the night) = "Remember that l'il funny tight-pants fella we ran out of town? Yeah... the one that talked real fastish, especially about other folks money and had half a finger gone off one hand!"

    The working man confronts an unheard of array of machinery dedicated to "taking back" hard earned treasure from him.

    Marvel at the speed of spin as hourly pronouncements of bold new plans and intitiatives drive the wrong way up the ramp and crash head-on into last hour's pronouncements due to reality's gridlock.

    Hilarious how so many people who pulled the lever for THIS SHIT TO HAPPEN are disavowing any knowledge of having done so...

    *Nuh-Uh! I didn't vote for that little maniac! YOU did!*

    When an undersized buster bogarts a card game recently vacated by a stuttering cretin because he heard the cretin was apparently too stupid to STEAL IT ALL, you KNOW problems are in the offing.

    So many of you cheered... 9.5 ran almost EXCLUSIVELY on "taking it to the Cops."

    You hated your Police Department so Rahm figured he could balance the budget by fucking with YOUR SAFETY and have some fun trying to "redistribute" us out of our pensions and use the money to fatten his contributors...

    As CPD goes... so goes this city.

    Just wait until the screaming for help starts.

    Time for a new Supt., this will give Rahm 6 to 8 months of a 'honeymoon' period before the new guy is accountable. My guess is; look for McMouth to be gone March-April so the 'new' strategy can't be criticized through next year's summer cull. Remember, it's all about the message, as the 'Poison Dwarf' would say.

    Until rham and his tribe hire more police it will continue.Cameras don't stop crime they just record it,or make money on traffic violations. It's all about the BUCK, rham and city hall do not care about the police or any other first responders until their needed.Murder rates will continue to climb each year, until we elect some repubs or independed people who really care about our city and not about their dealings to advance in politics or make money. Hire a supt. that comes from the ranks and I don't mean one that's connected like the black dude with the 40 mkile stare.

    It's sad to see the level of stupidity exhibited on the nightly news. Usually a story about street violence brings out the warning; "Be alert". Followed by 2 or 3 young women affirming "I'm always alert". The finale is a photo of some thug who has spent the last 3-5 in Menard pumping iron and running laps. Yeah, be alert to see where your teeth went so maybe they can put them back in.

    Dear Mayor:

    F you and the "fine upstanding citizens" of the south and west sides of the city who travel to the tourist/north side of the city to implement their mayhem. Knowing full well that the CPD cannot protect me and mine, I carry when out and about. Come and get it.

    I was in Newport Beach, California... and I saw a bumper sticker on a parked car that read, "I miss Chicago."
    So I broke the window, stole the radio, shot out two of the tires and left a note that read, "I hope this helps!"

    Dear Alderman Smith,

    One thing has become clear. Chicago's gun policy is simply not working. Banning guns sounds good in theory, but just does not work in the real world, as this article confirms.

    Instituting Concealed Carry would allow law abiding citizens to protect themselves, plus the deterrent effect would be enormous. Just think about Texas.

    And to anyone who opposes Concealed Carry, here is my response: Let's try it for a couple years. If it does not deliver results, we can always go back to the ban we have now. Fair enough?

    Its amazing to see where citizens got involved in a purse snatching downtown and helped grab the LONE offender. Citizens will not get involved when there is a group of 5 or more. Your southside and westside youths know this and have become impowered. Watch how dangerous watertower place gets after 1pm during the holiday school break. Was there last year on the 8th floor and felt like I was at GD gang meeting in the old Taylor homes on the 8th floor. Will not go back!!

    The criminal-political class of Chicago and Illinois will NEVER allow the good citizens to arm themselves...

    They fear a forcible course of correction.

    Which means they're willing to put up with armed, brazen as can be criminals who KNOW the upright man is intentionally disarmed by the politicians.

    The fuckery of "The Chicago Way" has gone nation-wide.

    The hopey-changey guy is working out the logistics of disarming the whole of law-abiding American citizenry.

    Just you watch...

    *No no no... You rubes don't have the individual right to defend yourselves... Now play nice and don't make a scene as we load you and your family onto these rail cars*

    The very definitions of Freedom and the Pursuit of Happiness is being rebooted before your very eyes with Chicago as the testing ground before it's implemented on a national scale...

    *You people can't be trusted to think for yourselves... We'll do it for you... just in case you get funny ideas*

    History will note to our shame that the seeds of the decline of this republic took root and flourished in Chicago.

    Heh... Rahm says sit down and shut up...

    The media lap-dogs bark happily as they ride in the purses of the Rahm & Co. North Shore big money contributors/friends of Maggie phony charity & money laundering operatives.

    Heh... Cops, military, free men and like minded people are the only ones who would have a notion of fighting back against being pre-selected by these people as being the losers.

    In the 60's Detroit auto makers calculated it was more economical for people to die then to equip cars with seat-belts.

    Something tells me Rahm has calculated it's more economical for Chicagoians to be robbed, rapped and or killed then to hire more cops.

    Here is what happens to Chicago burglars in Champaign County.

    Teen sentenced to prison for burglaryMon, 11/26/2012 - 8:00am | The News-Gazette

    URBANA — A Chicago teen who admitted he broke into an Urbana home last spring to steal has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

    Champaign County Judge Heidi Ladd agreed to recommend Dwayne Broughton, 19, for the Department of Corrections' boot camp program.

    Broughton recently pleaded guilty to the April 11 residential burglary of a home in the 1100 block of Lanore Drive.

    Assistant State's Attorney Chris Kanis said an Android tablet and a backpack were stolen.

    Broughton was linked to the crime through fingerprints left behind. He admitted his involvement to police when confronted, Kanis said.

    In exchange for his guilty plea, two other counts of residential burglary alleging break-ins to two other Urbana homes in April were dismissed.

    Kanis said Broughton had no prior convictions.
