Just how many blacks do you approve of being murdered?


Now that you stated Trump is responsible for this, we know YOU approve of whatever the actual number is in 2018. So, if Trump allows 400 blacks to be murdered in 2018, we know you approve. Thanks for letting us know I guess?

Radio Station Manager says the UN troops are already in Chicago, and it is not just for the unrest there. There is a bigger problem, mainly that the State of Illinois is bankrupt. Now what do you think will happen if/when they cannot pay their bills or the people living there who work for them or are getting services (social programs)?

I never post (or even read) these types of things but since I live here and it is near and dear to my heart I guess you could say, I will opine.

This thread is all over the place. There is no martial law in Chicago. The sky is not falling. Federal troops are not coming here. That's ridiculous.

We are one of the highest taxed places in the country. Penny a cent on any beverage with sugar in it? You got (well had) it. Doesn't seem like much but it is. You are taxing people to provide juice to their children? Yeah, that makes sense. Oh wait, you are worried about obesity and diabetic people. Sure.

Seven cents to get a bag to put your groceries in all with the goal of protecting the environment? Uh huh.

Property taxes here are insane.

But there's a reason why we are taxed so egregiously: It is a great place to live.

I could write a book on why it is but I won't pontificate on that.

Not perfect, nothing is.

Kennedy accuses Emanuel of 'strategic gentrification plan' to force blacks out of Chicago

Chris Kennedy, Democratic candidate for governor, speaks about current politicians and the status quo. He is joined by his running mate Ra Joy and others. Jan. 3, 2018. (Zbigniew Bzdak/Chicago Tribune)

Democratic governor candidate Chris Kennedy on Wednesday accused Mayor Rahm Emanuel of leading a “strategic gentrification plan” aimed at forcing African-Americans and other minorities out of Chicago to make the city “whiter” and wealthier.

“I believe that black people are being pushed out of Chicago intentionally by a strategy that involves disinvestment in communities being implemented by the city administration, and I believe Rahm Emanuel is the head of the city administration and therefore needs to be held responsible for those outcomes,” Kennedy said during a news conference about gun violence in North Lawndale.

Yes - Kennedy "believes" - real proof there... You left out other parts of the article, such as:

"Kennedy, an heir to the iconic Massachusetts political family, has sought to appeal to African-American voters, focusing on the issue of gun violence and questioning the fairness of educational opportunities and property taxation in black neighborhoods. The names of his uncle, the late President John F. Kennedy, and father, the late U.S. Sen. Robert Kennedy, still carry resonance among older black voters from the family’s leadership in the struggle for civil rights during the 1960s.

Kennedy, who has had a tough time raising campaign money, is searching for a path to victory in the March 20 Democratic governor primary. He has ramped up his critiques of the Democratic establishment at a time when rival J.B. Pritzker has consolidated support from traditional Democratic organizations and spent tens of millions of dollars on TV advertising."


and....

The candidate contended Chicago was “using a strategy of selective containment where we’re allowing violence to continue as long as it only continues in certain neighborhoods.”

Those remarks drew a response from Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson, who portrayed Kennedy as out of touch with the city’s crime-fighting efforts. Johnson also said “no one is spiking the ball” on reducing violence.

“I’ve never heard from Chris Kennedy. I’ve never even met him. He’s never visited a police station or asked me or my team for any kind of briefing on what we are doing in Chicago to address the gang violence and ongoing infusion of illegal guns on our streets,” Johnson said in a statement. “I’m not a politician, but I do take issue with the hard work our men and women are doing to beat back this violence is used to score political points.”

I left nothing out of the Chicago Tribune article son.
I posted the link to the entire article.

The Democrat's policy of allowing the mass murder black people seems to be fine with the lefties.
I find it disgusting.

Name calling is your usual bullsh!t when people call out your lack of proving anything....matter of fact, it's all you have

Here is the editorial from the Chicago Tribune today:

Chris Kennedy's divisive fantasy

We know it’s early, but we hope the 2018 governor’s race doesn’t get any uglier than it did this week, when Democratic hopeful Chris Kennedy hallucinated aloud about Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s secret plan to drive minorities out of Chicago.

Kennedy’s Wednesday news conference was supposed to be about violence, but veered off into irresponsible and baseless conjecture about the exodus of black families from the city’s South and West sides.

“I believe that black people are being pushed out of Chicago intentionally by a strategy that involves disinvestment in communities being implemented by the city administration,” Kennedy said.

That population loss is real. The “strategic gentrification plan” is imaginary. It’s a cynical and divisive pitch for votes, and it conveniently commits the candidate to nothing.

The so-called strategy includes “cutting off funding” for schools and police, according to Kennedy. There’s not enough money for cops and teachers, he says, “because the mayor allows the Cook County assessor to continue to underassess the downtown buildings owned by corporate America — people who make donations to Rahm Emanuel, folks he’s now protecting.”

Say what you will about J.B. Pritzker, the Democrats’ slated candidate for governor: He understands how the property tax system works. But Pritzker’s ploy to lower his own property taxes — disconnecting the toilets in a vacant Gold Coast property so it could be classified as “uninhabitable” — didn’t result in less revenue for the city or schools. It simply shifted the burden to other taxpayers. Someone please explain that to Kennedy.

What is this business about cutting off funding, anyway? Chicagoans have watched their taxes rise steadily under Emanuel and are bracing for another increase to support the Chicago Public Schools, thanks to a new school funding law strongly supported by the mayor.

But Kennedy apparently believes taxpayers should waste much of that money to keep open half-empty schools in shrinking neighborhoods. That doesn’t improve educational opportunities, it diminishes them. Closing schools is an unpopular move, but it means CPS can spend more money teaching kids and less maintaining underutilized buildings. Maybe someone could explain that to Kennedy, too — and to his Democratic primary rivals Pritzker and Sen. Daniel Biss, and to Sen. Kwame Raoul, who’s running for Illinois attorney general …

Kennedy is right that last year’s homicide count of 650 is nothing to crow about, even if it’s more than 100 fewer than the year before. But he didn’t say anything meaningful about how to lower it more, probably because he doesn’t know what the Chicago Police Department is doing about it already. “As far as I can tell, he’s never spoken to one officer or any of CPD leadership,” police Superintendent Eddie Johnson says. “I’m not a politician, but I do take issue when the hard work our men and women are doing to beat back this violence is used to score political points.” Yep.

Violent crime remains a huge problem in Chicago. Public schools have a long way to go. Struggling minority neighborhoods haven’t shared in the economic prosperity of the downtown and North Side. Yes, some city policies disadvantage those communities and yes, it’s up to the mayor to address those inequities.

But Kennedy isn’t running for mayor. He’s running for governor. And he’s doing it by fomenting the fiction that the state’s population losses are being driven by a “strategic gentrification plan” in Chicago instead of the tax-happy, business-hostile mindset in Springfield. There’s nothing prescriptive about it. It’s just a cheap shot.

We’d love to hear what a Gov. Kennedy would do to help solve Chicago’s many problems. Right now, he’s too busy inventing more of them.

So desperate to hide the blame for the mass murder of black people in cities run by Democrats you have to crawl into the opinion pages.

Sad.

Those black people are still dead and the left won't even recognize their failure to provide public safety.

Violent crime remains a huge problem in Chicago. Public schools have a long way to go. Struggling minority neighborhoods haven’t shared in the economic prosperity of the downtown and North Side. Yes, some city policies disadvantage those communities and yes, it’s up to the mayor to address those inequities.

But Kennedy isn’t running for mayor. He’s running for governor. And he’s doing it by fomenting the fiction that the state’s population losses are being driven by a “strategic gentrification plan” in Chicago instead of the tax-happy, business-hostile mindset in Springfield. There’s nothing prescriptive about it. It’s just a cheap shot.

We’d love to hear what a Gov. Kennedy would do to help solve Chicago’s many problems. Right now, he’s too busy inventing more of them.

So desperate to hide the blame for the mass murder of black people in cities run by Democrats you have to crawl into the opinion pages.

Sad.

Those black people are still dead and the left won't even recognize their failure to provide public safety.



"mass murder"? You need to learn what words and terms actually mean. Or are you a "mentally stable genius"?



650 people were murdered in Chicago in 2017 and 94.5% of them were black.

Once again, Mule just makes up statistics and posts them as facts with no back up.

Approx. 80% were black, as reported in the Tribune.

Here is the editorial from the Chicago Tribune today:

Chris Kennedy's divisive fantasy

We know it’s early, but we hope the 2018 governor’s race doesn’t get any uglier than it did this week, when Democratic hopeful Chris Kennedy hallucinated aloud about Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s secret plan to drive minorities out of Chicago.

Kennedy’s Wednesday news conference was supposed to be about violence, but veered off into irresponsible and baseless conjecture about the exodus of black families from the city’s South and West sides.

“I believe that black people are being pushed out of Chicago intentionally by a strategy that involves disinvestment in communities being implemented by the city administration,” Kennedy said.

That population loss is real. The “strategic gentrification plan” is imaginary. It’s a cynical and divisive pitch for votes, and it conveniently commits the candidate to nothing.

The so-called strategy includes “cutting off funding” for schools and police, according to Kennedy. There’s not enough money for cops and teachers, he says, “because the mayor allows the Cook County assessor to continue to underassess the downtown buildings owned by corporate America — people who make donations to Rahm Emanuel, folks he’s now protecting.”

Say what you will about J.B. Pritzker, the Democrats’ slated candidate for governor: He understands how the property tax system works. But Pritzker’s ploy to lower his own property taxes — disconnecting the toilets in a vacant Gold Coast property so it could be classified as “uninhabitable” — didn’t result in less revenue for the city or schools. It simply shifted the burden to other taxpayers. Someone please explain that to Kennedy.

What is this business about cutting off funding, anyway? Chicagoans have watched their taxes rise steadily under Emanuel and are bracing for another increase to support the Chicago Public Schools, thanks to a new school funding law strongly supported by the mayor.

But Kennedy apparently believes taxpayers should waste much of that money to keep open half-empty schools in shrinking neighborhoods. That doesn’t improve educational opportunities, it diminishes them. Closing schools is an unpopular move, but it means CPS can spend more money teaching kids and less maintaining underutilized buildings. Maybe someone could explain that to Kennedy, too — and to his Democratic primary rivals Pritzker and Sen. Daniel Biss, and to Sen. Kwame Raoul, who’s running for Illinois attorney general …

Kennedy is right that last year’s homicide count of 650 is nothing to crow about, even if it’s more than 100 fewer than the year before. But he didn’t say anything meaningful about how to lower it more, probably because he doesn’t know what the Chicago Police Department is doing about it already. “As far as I can tell, he’s never spoken to one officer or any of CPD leadership,” police Superintendent Eddie Johnson says. “I’m not a politician, but I do take issue when the hard work our men and women are doing to beat back this violence is used to score political points.” Yep.

Mass murder is the deliberate illegal killing of a large number of people by a person or an organization.


Your vocabulary is as impressive as Trump's.

I have checked that link and I don't see the 80%, or any percentage figure. there.
Further checking other sources showed that Chicago had an approximately 17% reduction in homicides this past year with 77.7% of fatalities were black.
One disturbing fact is that in the percentage of ethnicity of assailants 9.9% were known to be black, but 85.1% of shooters were of unknown ethnicity/no arrest, and an unbelievable rate of 88% of no charges/no arrest/suspect unknown. Only 12% of ALL homicides have resulted in at least a suspect being arrested/charged.
Why such a low number of arrests?

To get the required percentage it takes a little math. A graph showed 537 black victims. Adding up the total number of homicide victims brings the total to 673. 537 divided by 673 is .79791976225 or, rounding off, 80%. Glad to help.

The "650 people were murdered in Chicago in 2017 and 94.5% of them were black" data comes from the FBI.

As usual the lefties here are incapable of accessing public data and go running to a corrupt liberal media site.

The really sad part here is that the lefties do not care and certainly don't hold the Democrats, who are responsible for public safety, responsible.

Exactly how many black people do you want murdered each year?
Does the left have a quota or is it just a random kill 'em and you don't care thing?







Then by all means, please put up your link. According to your “stats”, only 36 non black people died by means of homocide in Chicago last year.

Why does Mule have so many thoughts about “wanting black people murdered”?
