Sorry Frank. Chicago is NOT my kind of town. It’s Blue Hell. I will say though that Chicagoans are reaping what they’ve sown for the past hundred years or so.
Six people were killed and at least 14 others were wounded in shootings in Chicago over the weekend as the level of gun violence in the city so far this year remains well above that of recent years, according to police.
They’re at it again in murder city.
In real numbers that would be 385 people shot, not counting today, and 85 killed. This year. In 46 days. Just shy of two murders a day on average. To add some perspective, 30 members of the U.S. military have been killed in Afghanistan … in 2015 and 2016. For more perspective, 95 Marines and soldiers were killed in the Battle of Fallujah in, guess what, 46 days.
The ratio of black-Hispanic/white murders is about 25:1 and the homicide clearance rate so far this year is about 15% (I rounded up.)
Where is #BlackLivesMatter? They’re hiding under their beds, that’s where they are. Hoping that before the end of the month a cop shoots one of the thugs so they’ve got something to “protest.” Black lives don’t matter unless they can be used to make money for Rev. Al, Rev Jesse, and the #BlackLivesMatter organizers and dead ghetto punks at the hands of other ghetto punks are worth zip.
Dear Black Community, Your lives only matter if they are shot by a white cop. The problem?
Democrats. And who is holding them accountable? No one. When Rahm leaves office he’ll be replace by another Democrat. And probably another black Democrat.
So, Chicagoans are getting exactly what they voted for.
