Chicago violence: gun crime reaches crisis level in ‘Chiraq’

Last week, Camiella Williams went to view the body of her old school friend Cordero Mosley. He was the 24th friend she has lost to gun violence in Chicago, a city that now goes by the unwanted nickname “Chiraq”.

“Cordero was in a car and somebody walked up and shot him in the head,” said Miss Williams, 28, an anti-gun campaigner. “I’m just numb to this now, I’ve been to a lot of funerals.

    The real problem is that the liberals don’t want this problem fixed, nor do they want any problem fixed; that would take away their justification for an ever expanding government and ever diminishing rights. They will do just enough to say, “Look, we’re trying but we need more ____” and then throw more gas on the fire.

    • That does seem to be the plan.

        Once you realize that solving X isn’t the real agenda, you will see evidence everywhere. Just try to find a single example of a problem on the progressive agenda that’s been solved.

          “Miss Williams, 28, an anti-gun campaigner”

          Notice that Miss Williams is not an anti-gangsta campaigner. That tells you what the real agenda is. When more guns, more concealed carry and more open carry coincide with lower homicide rates, as has been the case for years now, that’s not good for the cause. They need more gun crime, lots more gun crime. That’s where BLM and their antics come in.

      I don’t want this problem fixed.
      I want these inner cities walled off like Escape from New York.
      Shut off the EBT cards and airdrop soylent green periodically.

    This is the end game of any city run by Democrats.

    But here in canada the BLM street thugs are protesting in Toronto . I knew that that the White elites were stupid to think that appointing a Black Police Chief would not stop another Yonge street riot because we had a cultural problem with lazy people that blamed all the shorty comings on external factors.

    Chicago and Detroit now have a combined 900+ homicides a year but Obama stays quiet because it’s a gun-free zone run by Democrats and he wants Hillary to win by paint the Rep.’s a racists.

    It’s not gun crime, it’s black crime.

    If they don’t care then I don’t either. It’s fucking comedy.

    Chicago has strict gun control, this shouldn’t be happening.

    • Alain

      I thought it was another of those “gun free zones”.

      • Ron MacDonald

        The people that need guns, don’t have them to protect themselves.

  • canminuteman

    If she has lost 24 friends you’d think she might realize that there is more to it than guns. I have guns. Most of my friends have guns. None of us have lost friends to gun violence nor have we shot at each other.

    It ain’t guns. It’s ghetto culture.

    End ghetto culture.
