While some of America was taking time, albeit too briefly, to reflect on the sacrifices made by our courageous US military personnel on Memorial Day, the city of Chicago was continuing its all-important job of killing more black people.
Because black lives don’t matter. They don’t matter to the Demorats, they don’t matter to Leftists, they don’t matter to the local Chicago politicians, and I can make an excellent argument that black lives don’t matter to blacks themselves.
Chicago’s Bloody Memorial Day: 66 Shot, 6 Killed
by Warner Todd Huston
An incredible 66 people were shot, although just six were killed, over Chicago’s Memorial Day weekend. The carnage pushed the number of gunshot victims well above 1,500 this year in this Democratic-run city.
One of the youngest victims was a 15-year-old girl who was killed on the city’s famed Lake Shore Drive while a passenger in a car driven by a known gang member.
The blood continued to flow all weekend, with victims in their teens and early 20s dominating the mounting tally.
Memorial Day 2016 outpaced the toll of violence for both 2015 and 2014, but not the death tolls. In 2015, 45 were wounded, and 12 deaths were recorded. In 2014, 21 were wounded and eight killed. While far more were shot this year than any other Memorial Day weekend, Chicago can take some solace that fewer ended up dead.
So far this year there have been 1,514 people shot in Chicago. Of that number, 228 have been killed by the gunfire. An additional 26 murders by other means pushed the death toll to 254. Sixty-two of those homicides happened in May.
So just who kills whom in Chicago? Let’s examine the statistics — not just from “conservative media,” but from governmental and the American Media Maggots as well.
From the ChicagoSunTimes.com:
New study shows likelihood of being shot in Chicago
by Frank Main
The study, called “Tragic, but not random: The social contagion of nonfatal gunshot injuries,” was published in the January 2015 issue of Social Science & Medicine. It shows the risk of becoming a gunshot victim in Chicago is “more concentrated than previously thought,” according to Andrew Papachristos, one of the authors.
And as was previously known, race was a key risk factor in getting shot, the study noted. For every 100,000 people, an average of one white person, 28 Hispanics and 113 blacks became victims of nonfatal shootings every year in Chicago over the six-year study period.
Are you perhaps sensing a trend here?
AllenWest.com then weighs in on some statistics — Allen West being a retired Lt Colonel in the US Army and a former Florida Representative. Who is himself black.
On average, 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012, according to the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports. Using FBI and CDC statistics, Professor Johnson calculates that 112 black men, on average, suffered both justified and unjustified police-involved deaths annually during this period.
This equals 2.5 percent of these 4,472 yearly deaths. For every black man — criminal or innocent — killed by a cop, 40 black men were murdered by other black men. The, at most, 2.5 percent of the problem generates relentless rage. And, yet, it is rude-to-racist to mention 97.5 percent of the problem.
The notion that America’s cops simply are gunning down innocent black people is one of today’s biggest and deadliest lies”.
Chicago: 75% of Murdered are Black, 71% of Murderers are Black
The numbers are horrifying
by Devin Foley
Simply put, Chicago has a massive Black-on-Black murder problem. All of the data below comes from the Chicago Police Department. You can access it here.
What stands out the most looking at both charts and knowing that 90% of the victims are male is that a lot of young, Black men are being killed in Chicago. No race comes even close to overall deaths by homicide. Keep in mind that based on 2010 Census numbers, only 33% of Chicago’s population was classified as Black.
The data on offenders also tells a troubling story: Young, Black males are overwhelmingly committing most of the murders. Based on the data on the victims, that means young, Black males are primarily killing other young, Black males. What a terrible situation.
“Black Lives Matter” have no problem with excoriating anyone and everyone not in sync with their racist mantra. Anyone suggesting — and that includes any and all Leftists — that “all lives matter” is hoisted on their own Leftist petard.
But the only logical bottom line is this: there are any number of reasons that blacks are murdering blacks at remarkable rates. Those aside, that law enforcement is a “major player” in the demise of young black males is an out-and-out lie. Repeat: a lie. Young black urban males predominantly kill young black urban males. That is a fact.
The logical extension is this: blacks continuously demand what they term “respect.” Let me state the obvious for those who cannot ken the obvious: when blacks truly respect each other, then and only then will respect be 1) given and 2) earned.
Blacks: earn it.
Law enforcement isn’t the problem in your “black community.”
Try some introspection.
