Chicago’s Murder Rate Spirals Out of Control

We turn our attention once again to the city of Chicago, where, as of this writing, 2,858 people have been shot and 487 have been killed so far this year (both numbers will surely be higher by the time you read this). The website HeyJackass.com tabulates these and other figures related to crime in Chicago, and it reports that on average someone is shot every two hours and murdered every twelve. But these averages are for the year overall; we are now in the prime shooting season of summer, and the averages for August approximate to someone being shot every ninety minutes and murdered every eight hours. August, says the Chicago Tribune, has been the most violent month in Chicago in 20 years.

    ‘ Black Lives Only Matter’ when they are shot by ,hopefully White Cops.
    Not much point of a Cop doing his job in Black neighbourhoods—any MORE!
    You can thank ‘Black Lives Matter”
    Enjoy your Anarchy.

      Yes and did anyone remind these people that Chicago is a “gun free zone”. LOL

    Of those shot, wonder how many bought obamacare, or expect the state to sew ’em up.

    Obama’s people….remove the gun from every black hand in America, and the murder rate drops to that of Britain or The Netherlands….
