    It's actually 795 homicides. But more compelling are the numbers shot

    http://heyjackass.com/2016-year-to-date-totals/

    HeyJackass.com has the best and probably most accurate shooting stats for the city.

    4378 people SHOT in the city of Chicago in 2016. 795 homicides across all mode types.

While the blighted neighborhoods do need "help", the circumstances are self-inflicted, not natural, the results of decades of neglect on the part of state and city (mis)management. Chicago has a 70 billion dollar unfunded pension liability. How's that going to work out in the long term? Apparently, if you're at the top of the political heap the status quo works just fine as long as votes keep pouring in at election time.

    Well if you listen to jackasses like Don Lemon and his merry band of fellow travelers, those folks who point out these issues in the urban inner city involving blacks are misinformed, cherry picking and when all else fails, racists for having the unmitigated gall to suggest that most blacks in America are living anything other than the dream and upper middle class lives.

    Yet when it's convenient to do so, they trot out the very same issues that were being pointed out as a way of laying blame at the feet of the so-called Jim Crow loving, privileged white American establishment.

    Classic "heads we win, tails you lose" b.s. conveniently aided via playing race cards and the use of smoke and mirrors.

    The truth is the biggest victim in this sham and it's the unfortunate law abiding citizens of those plagued inner cities who are unable to defend themselves from the predators who are paying the price for the lies and failure to admit and address the truth of what is going on there.

    I hope that things can get turned around to some degree with the incoming administration but I can't see it happening without a lot of bloodshed as those who wish to avoid having to accept the rule of law further entrench themselves.

    I read Knife Fights which is about counterinsurgency and was struck by the idea that it's pretty similar to inner city America.
    Never, of course, explore the guts of an idea that seems as if it might threaten one of your more cherished beliefs.

    Elections have consequences. Maybe......Chicago, Detroit, periods of NY, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Washington DC, and many others have
    been voting for he wrong people or party.
    Just a Hairy Special Snowflake supply clerk with no field experience, shooting an Asymetric carbine as a Try Hard. Snarky and easily butt hurt. Favorite animal is the Cape Buffalo....likely indicative of a personality disorder.

    Chicago cops are also required to fill out an extemely detailed as in multipage document for every citizen contact due to a consent decree IIRC. If you want cops to do less of something like stopping criminals in the streets, just make them do more paperwork that can later be used to hang them if they stop too many of the "wrong" sort of people. Their contacts have plummeted. A great resource for all things Chicago PD is the SecondCityCop blog.
    The first indication a bad guy should have that I'm dangerous is when his
    disembodied soul is looking down at his own corpse wondering what happened.

    Are you referring to that fake priest in the Colin Kaperpunk jersey that was on 60 Minutes Sunday? If so, that guy is as phony as a three dollar bill and is milking the black community for all it's got.

    It does have some useful information but it is ruined by the usual group of people who continually complain and rip others. it get's nauseating after awhile.

    No. I don't watch 60 minutes. There were actually two priests interviewed on Fox News. They appeared very well intentioned and I don't doubt they are trying to help their flock.
