Because you do a pretty good job here going out of your way to insult and demean the Black community. Getting a strong vibe that you don't care flor black people.
He's not active there at all.

Chicago allowed the violence to get out of control. When Chicago let the gangsters take over the city, the result is wanton violence. Where else do you have dozens of people shot and killed each weekend? Chicago. If any other city had the violence Chicago has, authorities would go Shaft on the criminal element.

Smaller cities that have a lot of violence:

Look at it like a rapid form of justice. Criminals are killing criminals, so it is saving the government millions of dollars in expenses for their imprisonment, housing, and foodstamps.

Have you ever wondered whether the city government and the police force are okay with the gun violence on the south side? In high school, we would occasionally drive around in the south side, never stopping at traffic lights or stop signs. It is like a land in which rules no longer exist. It was dangerous then- it is dangerous now. It will never change- except for the worse. East St. Louis in the making.
It's not as safe as it once was. People shot on buses, people being shot in cars driving down the expressways, pregnant women being sucker punched on the els, mobs of 200 - 500 beating people up and destroying stores. This is ALL over the city. You're safe until something happens to you.

And people who say,'well...there aren't as many shootings as there were back in the 1980s' make me ill. Is that supposed to warrant a gold star or something?

I hate what the city has become. I've had loved ones beaten up, I've been beaten up. I wish everyone would just get a gun and take care of business until this mess is cleaned up once and for all.

A year or two of stop and frisk would get the majority of the guns off the streets, changing the culture will take a different approach.

No not allowed. Chicago accepts out of control violence. That is why they allowed gangsters to take over. That is why Chicago ties the hands of law enforcement. Chicago accepts that they have a very bad part of town and as long as it stays intuit part of town, no one cares.

Then why have you been talking about it so much, if it's just "human nature"?

Why doesn't she just admit that her city has a lower homicide rate than many, many cities but there is nothing that can be done because hundreds of thousands of multi-generational welfare queens had as many as they could for a big, juicy welfare check and all the benefits that go along with it. Another thing is lots of welfare queens also use their subsidized housing as leverage to recruit as many bad boy parolee's as possible into their lives and have baby after baby. The children they have they can't take care of and voila 15 or 20 years later they are hardened gangsters.

I have a feeling that this is the calm before the storm. Many poor women and parolee men are having been having as many children as possible that they don't have the slightest idea how to take of, so in a decade or two many big Democratic, liberal cities might be much worse then today.

I guess there is far worse than Chicago as far as homicides per-capita but still interesting how last month she said when she was elected "“Enough of the shootings. Enough of the guns. Enough of the violence,”

The mayor also said last month " “no higher calling than restoring safety and peace in our neighborhoods,”

Looks like this new liberal Democratic mayor has already failed. She is just another Democrat that gives speeches but has no policy and no solution to anything. Just a bunch of excuses and arrogance.
Anyone who actually thinks that a woman has babies for bigger welfare checks is a man who has never changed a diaper or got the kids fed, clothed and off to school and a thousand other responsibilities that comes with having children. I hate to burst anyone`s little snot bubble here but having children isn`t like keeping goldfish. My wife and I both did shift work when our children were young so I`ve walked the walk.
That`s as far into your post as I got because it deserves no more.
