Default Why Chicago is so Violent.

If we consider these increasingly popular "drive-by shootings" endemic to the underclass, we see the instinct in full cry. Such shootings accomplish nothing at all except to relieve instinct pressure inherent in the species. For ages this pressure has been properly directed by civilized men into hunting channels. As hunting possibilities decrease with the urbanization of the world, the undirected and morally irresponsible youth turns naturally to killing people, for lack of a better plan. Without the family and without the church this phenomenon is not going to disappear. The State is not only a bad master, it is also inefficient.

Chicago isn't getting more violent.

in the 90's Chicago averaged 823 homicides per year, this decade they're averaging 459, which is real close to mirroring the national trend, not to mention homicides are down 34% so far this year and shootings down 28%.

You can go anywhere and find people who say things are worse off now than ever, that doesn't make it true.

I know today is way more violent than wild west days. Crack and drug drive bys and murders made the wild west look tame.

Crime statistics show that Oakland and Stockton have nearly twice as much violent crime per capita as Chicago.

Chicago doesn't even make the top 15 list of most violent cities in the country.

Most of those gang members have no father in the house. No mentors. Then, they drop out of school and run with the family (Gang). Sell drugs, buy guns and the rest is history.

Fewer people are killed with all rifles each year (323 in 2011) than with shotguns (356), hammers and clubs (496), and hands and feet (728).

The only reason people keep mocking Chicago and saying it is worse than any other city when it comes to gun violence is because that is where Obama politically came from. Just more political party FUD!

I have an anecdotal opinion that Chicago sucks. Everyone I've ever known that was from Chicago has been annoying. Chicago this, Chicago that, blah blah. If Chicago is so awesome, why are you here, and not there? Hence, Chicago sucks.

This is the right answer. Chicago is #16 for murder and #21 for overall violent crime. The top 5 have double-to-triple the murder rate of Chicago.

Chicago has been a gun-free utopia for over 30 years! There hasn't been a gun crime in Chicago since 1982! It's just an eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil right-wing conspiracy, designed to make Dear Leader look bad!

Chicago is filled with wicked people; that's why it's violent.

From after the Civil War until the 1950s people from the South had moved to Chicago looking for work. They crammed themselves in dirty and small tenements. Of course generations grew up poor and without any family structure. There is anonymity in the big city, places to hide. People can commit crimes and escape accountability. Fathers can leave their families without any community judgement. Before you know it these people are more like animals than humans.

Gang culture protected by the MSM because it is dominately non-whites.

They will NEVER look at the communities and ask why are your babies growing up into urban terrorists?

This will never happen. Their is blood on the MSMs hands because they refuse to do their jobs.


Minority on minority violence? dozens killed monthly? Every year, all the time.
Non story. Culture problem? No. Shut up. Shut up. Racist!

White kid flips and kills kids, a very rare occurence. It is the ONLY story. Blame the gun, blame the NRA, blame white gun owners.

Kind of like how everyone says California sucks, but for some reason they do not move out. They give every sorry excuse in the book, but if they really thought California sucked, they would move. They complain about the gun laws, the economy, the lack of jobs, yet they are still here.

So in other words, California is the best since so many keep moving here and none of the complainers move out.
