Wait...Crime ISN'T Down?

  • There are stunning new crime numbers from the FBI: in Chicago, it isn't just murders and shootings that are up - it is all violent crime.

    Newly-obtained FBI data show that the crime surge in Chicago goes beyond the end of a gun. Overall violent crime - an umbrella figure that includes murder, rape, robbery and assault - jumped significantly here the first half of last year, an increase more than four times higher than the rest of the nation.

    According to this FBI report, violent crime in the U.S. increased a little more than five percent the first half of last year. But in Chicago during the same period, overall violent crime heaved 24 percent.

    While the numbers were driven by a surge in Chicago murders - 49 percent higher than the previous year - FBI data show the increase in all violent crime categories in Chicago is significantly outpacing the nation, with aggravated assault up 23 percent and robbery 28 percent higher
And those are just the stats for the first half of 2016, meaning every time Special Ed or anyone claimed "crime was down," they were lying. Anyone want to guess what the total increase in crime was once they figure out the second half of the year? It certainly didn't go down, that's for sure.

It's amusing watching a prancing tutu-clad weasel
get his richly deserved reward of being trapped
behind the wheel of his shot-up and crashed political
vehicle and burning to a blackened skeleton.

Heh...
Can't blame The Police for that.

The Police surely aren't the ones who tallied
800+ bodies (counting wet corpses with bullet holes
and other similar such "anomalies" disguised as
"death investigations") to the local butcher's bill.

The Police didn't break this city.
It's way beyond The Police to fix it.

You want more cops on the street? You want to stop doing more with less?

Start reporting crimes for what they are and not downgrading a crime, i.e. burglary to theft from building, strong arm robbery to theft from person despite what the bosses want. Just articulate the facts to support the crime/classification. When crime is properly recorded and the increase is reported the public will be more likely to demand more cops on the streets, leaving less wiggle room for Rahm, or whoever is mayor, to refuse to hire more cops. Take the report, you ain't making crime up, but accurately reporting it.

The murder and mayhem party who believes that the law of the jungle is the new law of the land. Vote Democratic. Every one of these pricks should be run out of town to Marion Illinois where they belong because they have the blood of many victims on their hands. Could you imagine a scientist who proposed an experiment that was projected to cause many deaths and that scientist still proceeded to conduct the experiment? He would be branded the Frankenstein serial killer and given the death penalty. What is the difference between the scientist and Rahm, Tony Tommy and Jan? The difference is politicians live by the laws of the jungle which means they can do whatever they want, whenever they want, while the lowly scientist must comply 100% to the law of the Land. Democratic politicians are the dumbest politicians on earth but they look like MIT rocket scientist when compared to the people who vote for them.

Which stats should be believed: The City lists 762 homicides, while the Cook County Medical Examiner lists 812, a 15% difference! HeyJackass lists 796. Granted, ALL of these figures are ugly, and the personal loss to any of the survivors or family has got to be substantial, but which is the truth? In addition, what is the Long Term Effect on insurance rates and the desire to open businesses or visit Shitcago? Years ago while working in a "Changing" area officers assigned to that District were "encouraged" to downplay crime, and it can be done by simply asking if you are Absolutely Sure, that an attempt burglary was not just kids doing a damage to property? Were they attempting a forced entry, or just playing with the lock? On the other hand a Homicide is an entirely different matter. Or is it? Is this City so Corrupt, that we are even willing to condone the misrepresentation of loss of life? Do NOTHING MORE than answer your radio and cover each other. Do not join the Lie! Fu&k Rahm!

And as Toni Preckwinkle runs around the county taking credit and bragging that the Cook County Jail (in her words: the intersection between racism and poverty) population is at a record low, shootings are murders are at an all time high. Only in this county would the sheeple so blindly follow this idiocy. And now that she has Kim Foxx in place, the dismantlement of the criminal justice system in Chicago can proceed at full speed. Why burn down just one neighborhood when you can destroy an entire city?

Obama has done nothing for the inner cities of America, to include Chicago. He will not go against the democratic leadership of the cities and the union run public education system, both of which are responsible for the sad state of black America in these inner cities. How could Obama criticize Rahm, or the mayor of Baltimore or Washington DC or Atlanta or St. Louis? How could he go against the unions that run public education, the unions that support all things within the democratic party? How could he ask for tougher sentences for violent criminals and drug dealers when he knows that would put more black people in jail? Better education, better public transportation to get people to jobs and real job training, not the job training programs that has allowed the political class to steal the money.

Those totals don't include the non-reported crime. Also, crimes that are down graded from burglary to theft as well as death investigations that never get upgraded in the UCR reports that go to the feds. Bosses, the state's attorney and judges tend to forget the "intent to commit a theft or felony therein" part of the burglary statue.

As you pointed out SCC, crime is up big time including robberies. Shootings and Murders are what gets all the attention in Chicago, but the reality is, there are very few "innocent" victims of Chicago's shootings and murders. Most of the shooting and murder victims are felons, criminals, and gang members themselves, or they are people "hanging with" those types when they they get shot. On the other hand, robberies are out of control in Chicago, especially in Area Central, yet it doesn't get much publicity. The victims of robberies in Chicago are more often then not, legit victims. Yet, the genius bosses at the Area Central Detective division have slashed the Area RBT detectives, even though the case load is higher than what Murder and Shooting teams get. The genius bosses at Area Central decided a while back the RBT detectives can handle stuff like "Agg Batts to Bus Drivers and Nurses at Hospitals" because RBT doesn't have enough to do. Meanwhile, commanders through-out the districts complain that nothing is getting solved when it comes to robberies, and honestly they are right. This is what happens when you gut RBT (which has more cases) and the murder and shooting teams are overloaded with personnel. No fault of the HGS detectives, but most of what they are doing isn't getting solved either due to the "snitches get stitches" mentality. Hopefully with the new classes of detectives supposedly coming out this year RBT can be be replenished with personnel to help solve cases that more often than not have REAL and LEGIT victims. The average RBT Detective has a caseload that is just impossible to keep on top of, which is a shame, because that is where many of the real victims cases are lingering in Chicago.

The whole 5% increase in the US was due to Chiraq pulling the stats up. That says it right there - inept leadership (if you can even call it 'leadership'). Time to cut the cancer of corruption out - Feds ought to come in, arrest the House Speaker, Senate President, Chicago Mayor, the 50 Alderthieves, Crook County President and Board, and that idiot Sheriff Dart - they've got them on the whole "Harboring Criminals" thing for their Sanctuary City bullshit.

After that we can move on to charges of malfeasance because they keep letting criminals out of jail due to the color of their skin.

TIF funds are a financial scam to be sorted out.

Not funding pensions - ON PURPOSE - because they concocted some nonsensical rates of return that no actuary (let alone any layperson who ever invested in the stock market) would believe. All so they could redirect monies to bike lanes, private stadiums, flyovers, median planters, subway train stations built and never used, and more!

Every single contract award, fee abatement, property tax relief, etc ought to be investigated and anything unethical or untoward ought to be prosecuted.

Cuff up all these extra-stinky turds for 20-30 years, make them forfeit all monies they reaped by their scammery and let everyone know that "WE'RE DONE WITH THIS CRAP!", start charging all the gang bangers with RICO violations - put them all away, let the cops do their jobs and maybe people will start coming back to Chicago....

National statistics show that blacks attack whites at 5 times the rate that whites attack blacks, and this figure does not include homicide. Over 1/2 million black on white attacks and less then 90,000 white attacks on blacks. These numbers are from 2014, the last year they were available.

Speaking of killing crime, just as predicted, death investigations from 2016 are now being classified as homicides now. One such case is an arson which killed one person on 16 Sep 16. Just two days ago it was reclassified a homicide because of the ME's report making it a homicide.
Problem with this is they knew on 28 Nov 16 from the ME's office it was reclassified a homicide but they didn't change it until this year.

Linked on Drudge:

The record-setting violence in Chicago is even worse than announced as new evidence shows the city suffered 50 more homicides last year than the numbers publicly reported in the past week.

The city posted a decades-high homicide count of 812 in 2016, per the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. That’s 15% greater than the 762 murders reported by the city's police department.

Cook County: 915 total homicides of which 88 % occurred in Chicago. Roughly, 110 homicides occurred outside of Chicago.

Honestly, who really gives a shit?

Oh sure, the numbers of murders would rise to astronomical totals, but who would care? The political class? Not unless the tourist and trade show figures were threatened.
The media? They would continue with their mindless braying about social justice, but if they couldn't blame CPD for gunning down the black and brown children, there wouldn't be any meat in their arguments. The actual city residents? Not unless their immediate neighborhoods were impacted, and maybe not even then. They won't admit to what the problem really is with regard to the savages that are spawned in the hood and released onto civilized society with sickening regularity. Let them continue to slaughter one another.
