Why in the hell are 50 to 75 people getting shot in Chicago each weekend?
It is not gun control, they have it, and have had it a long time, and it did not help. My liberal friends will hate me for this sentence, but look it up, I’m correct, gun control is not correlated with a drop in violent crime.
It’s also not the direct fault of the Democratic Party either. Although my conservative friends will hate me for that sentence, don’t despair, Dim Party leaders are still the dummies they appear to be — and they did exacerbate most of the problems — that have caused the economic stresses — which underlie the real problem.
But the real problem is the gangs.
Chicago has a well armed, young, drug-crazed, foreign army prowling the streets every weekend and these 50 or 60 gangs with territories and economies have become big violent businesses.
The City’s leadership, in particular, Mayor Rahm Emanual; seems oblivious to the danger radiating from the presence of 60,000 to 100,000 gang members — who rely at least partially on criminal activity for a living — and who are not hesitant to kill; and can count on the community around them — to keep quiet about whatever they do, up to and including murder, murder and more murder.
They only have a 25% closure rate of these homicides, it’s essentially possible right now to murder and murder in Chicago and never even get questioned.
This cannot go on.
People will either demand change, which I admit is unlikely, or make a change.
In other words, if the Democratic Party does not face this challenge head-on, and make real change, truly change their policies, Trump will be at 40% approval in the black community, within 1 year.
Then, things will change.
