37 Shot, 6 Killed This Weekend. The Middle East?

No. Chicago. The city where our President thrived, delivering all kinds of needs to his neighbors and where his previous chief of staff sits as the governor. This city also has the tightest gun laws outside of DC, another criminal haven. So how is it all this calamity and no black lives matter protests there? How can this happen week after week and our politicians blame law abiding gun owners for all the violence? How can the police be the target of all the hate while they risk their lives trying to protect the average citizen?

"Violence soared in Chicago over Labor Day weekend with 37 people shot, at least six fatally, while several others remain in critical condition. Among the victims were numerous teens, and several of the shootings are believed to have been gang-related.

The Chicago Tribune reported the weekend’s violence brought the number of shootings in the city this year to nearly 1,700, an increase of more than 17 percent in one year. The homicide rate has currently skyrocketed to over 300, an increase of nearly a quarter over the last year, with more murders occurring on Sunday than any other day of the week and August thus far being the bloodiest month of the year."

Stop and frisk did just that in NY. The problem is big city liberal mayors don't care about the little people. Or, they would have gone after the drug dealers, the pimps, the repeat offenders instead of the cops and suburban gun owners. The political correctness angle, the lefts angle has allowed for genocide in the black neighborhoods thru abortion and gang activity. It has to stop.

Yeah, Chicago just completely ignores the drug dealers and lets them kill at will.

Authorities announced charges June 24, 2015, against dozens in connection with a West Side drug enterprise bust.

Crime Garry McCarthy

At least 42 people have been charged in their alleged roles in a $3 million-a-year narcotics operation on the West Side of Chicago, according to authorities.

James Triplett, 33, ran the heroin operation near Grenshaw Street and Independence Boulevard in the North Lawndale area, according to federal complaints.

Triplett's supplier was Levaughn Collins, nicknamed "Sweet Bobby," who "obtained wholesale quantities of heroin which they mixed and packaged for distribution to buyers like Triplett," the complaints state.

Angeles Avalos, 32, was charged with being a heroin supplier to Collins, according to authorities.

Police announced the charges at a Wednesday afternoon news conference at Chicago Police Department headquarters.

Earlier Wednesday, Chicago police and federal agents executed seven search warrants at the homes of several people and three alleged stash houses and seized several vehicles, including a 2014 Maserati GranTurismo. Officials also seized a dozen firearms, about $50,000 in cash, and a kilogram of heroin and cocaine, officials said.

Triplett's crew distributed heroin in tiny bags with "orange basketballs, purple lady logos, green playboy bunnies, Hershey's kisses or black panda bear symbols stamped on them," according to a release from the U.S. attorney's office.

The spot was worth $250,000 a month to the organization, according to authorities. Most of the 42 charged are in custody.

Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said during the news conference that up to 45 gunshot victims could be attributed to this crew.

It's not clear whether investigations into any of those shootings led to charges, though no violence was charged as a result of the investigation announced Wednesday.

"We knew what Al Capone was doing, and the IRS got him for tax evasion," McCarthy said. "If we can't solve those crimes, getting the crew for narcotics is just as good in some cases. Especially when we're gonna get pretty stiff sentencing."

Mdrake, then how do the mass killings continue, week after week, month after month, year after year? if the authorities are doing their jobs? The politicians don't care about the killings. They don't care that 1000's in the hood and low income area's kill each other. This is also the hoax that is liberalism.

So anywhere there is crime, is it because the politicians don't care? I mean, if they really cared, and they weren't just secret-muslim bed-wetting liberals, there would be no crime, right?

The people that actually care about them are the conservatives, the ones that show their love by telling them to pull up their bootstraps, right?

How absurd. We are talking about 100's, 1000's of killings in Chicago in the last 4 years alone. The politicians act sanctimonious about gun violence and do nothing to curb it where its at its worse. This is the real genocide in America and the left pays lip service to it. Criminals, drug crimes, gangs continue walking the streets of America and like the crime wave from the illegal immigrants the democrat party supports it. Good article on crime and how chicago hides the real numbers. http://www.chicagomag.com/Chicago-Magazine/May-2014/Chicago-crime-rates/

No, what you posted is absurd.

Tell that to all the family's who look to the police, the city to protect them all the while the police re act after the shootings, the homicides, the rape's. Tell the victims family like those in San Fran that the illegal aliens have rights too ya know. Tell the city of San fran to alert the stricken family that sanctuary cities is Not an issue.

What exactly is the point of this thread?

Snake is obsessed with Chicago because Obama used to live there. Every time there is a shooting in Chicago, he posts about it here and cites it as defining proof of the failings of liberalism. He gets bonus points if he works in the Clintons.

I knew this thread was about Chicago before I even opened it.

Mods, can we get a master Chicago gun violence thread where snake can consolidate these posts?

Ah, duh. Alright, lets follow that logic train but the other way around:

16.8, 17.5, 17.7, 19.1, 19.6/100,000 people gun related deaths. Is this the Middle East? No, it's Montana, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alaska. These states have the loosest gun laws around and it shows! What else do they have in common? The Republican Party, which dominates these states. Where is the NRA marching to help their fellow gun owners? They're probably out shooting themselves like the residents of these states that manage to not be shot by someone else. It's a wonder how this happens year after year yet the politicians refuse to do nothing about it. Clearly conservatives don't care and their entire philosophy has failed.

Its too illustrate how absurd the Anti gun rhetoric on the left is when the murder capital is run by these same people who purport to want to stop the violence, then do nothing. Its an illustration of how absurd the black lives matter agitators are. The genocide is real and its in the american inner city and that my friend is an abomination. FYI - you snake haters need to dial him up. He's in your heads like a no tomorrow.

Sentence #1: Cities throughout history have higher crime rates. Cities in the United States have high crime rates. Cities vote for Democrats. Ergo, Democrats support high crime rates and actively support people shooting each other.

Sentence #2: Black Lives Matter are the ones doing all of these shootings.

Sentence #3: Black people are committing a genocide against black people because liberals support gun control.

Sentence #4: I'm not snake/deisel, I merely post just like him, focus on the same exact topics he focused on, and have the same brand of lacking logic.

States with the most gun violence

Thomas C. Frohlich, 24/7 Wall St. 5:10 p.m. EDT June 15, 2015

Douglas McIntyre of 24/7 Wall Street looks at the ten states with the most gun violence in America. Michael Monday

AFP 532049401 A POL USA TX

More than two-thirds of all homicides in the United States are gun-related. Of the 16,121 homicides reported in 2013, 11,208 were caused by gun violence. Including suicides, nearly 34,000 people died in gun-related incidents in 2013, up 13.8% from 10 years earlier.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) keeps track of the number of gun-related deaths in each state. Fatalities include homicides, suicides, and accidents. The frequency of firearm-related deaths varies considerably across the country. In Hawaii, the state with the fewest gun-related fatalities, there were just 2.6 firearm-associated deaths per 100,000 people. In Alaska, on the other hand, there were nearly 20 gun-related deaths per 100,000 residents, the most of any state. 24/7 Wall St. examined the 10 states with the highest gun-related deaths.

Suicide is the leading cause of gun-related deaths across the country in recent years. Of the 33,636 firearm deaths in 2013, more than 21,000 were suicides. In fact, suicide accounted for more than half of gun-related deaths in all but one state with the most gun violence. In three states — Alaska, Montana, and Wyoming — suicide accounted for more than 80% of all firearm deaths.

24/7 Wall St. discussed the CDC's figures with John Roman, senior fellow at the Urban Institute, an economic and social policy think tank. Roman explained that states with the highest rates of suicide often have the strongest culture of gun ownership in the country. "There are many more suicides in places where it's easy to get a gun," he said.

While federal gun laws are uniform across the country, state regulations vary, offering more lax or more strict approaches to firearm use. Seven of the 10 states with the most firearm deaths in 2013 have enacted stand your ground laws. In keeping with a state's culture, Roman explained, many states with these laws likely also have laws that make it easier to possess firearms and buy ammunition.

In fact, none of the states with the most gun violence require permits to purchase rifles, shotguns, or handguns. Gun owners are also not required to register their weapons in any of these states. Meanwhile, many of the states with the least gun violence require a permit or other form of identification to buy a gun.

Gun-related homicides were also relatively frequent in the states with the most gun violence. Nationally, there were 3.61 homicides per 100,000 people. Seven of the the 10 states with the most gun violence reported homicide rates higher than the national rate. Louisiana is one of only four states in the country where homicides accounted for a larger share of firearm deaths than suicides. In 2013, Louisiana reported nearly 10 homicides per 100,000 residents, the highest rate in the country.

Although not necessarily related, violent crime rates in the states with the most gun violence were also quite high. In fact, in seven of these states there were more than 430 violent crimes reported per 100,000 residents. Nationally, the rate was 367.9 violent crimes per 100,000 Americans.

Limited access to quality hospitals may be a contributing factor to firearm deaths. Often, victims of gunshots or other violent crimes need immediate medical attention, which may be more difficult to receive in rural areas. "If you have a hospital with a Level III trauma center, your likelihood of surviving an injury like a gunshot wound is far higher than if you lived near a basic hospital," Roman said.

Economic factors also appear to be related to firearm deaths. The poverty rate in eight of the 10 states with the most gun violence was above the national rate of 15.8%.

Mississippi, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Arkansas, the states with the four highest poverty rates in the country, were among the states with the most gun violence.

Educational attainment rates also tended to be lower in states with the most gun violence. The share of adults with at least a bachelor's degree was lower than the national rate of 29.6% in all 10 states on this list.

To determine the states with the most gun violence, 24/7 Wall St. examined 2013 firearm-related deaths data from the CDC. Firearm death rates are age-adjusted to avoid distortion in states with large populations of young people. We also considered 2013 violent crime rates from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Report. From the U.S. Census Bureau, we reviewed median household income, poverty rates, and educational attainment rates for 2013. Information on firearm policies for each state are from the National Rifle Association's (NRA) Institute for Legislative Action.

These are the states with the most gun violence.

1. Alaska

> 2013 firearm death rate: 19.6 per 100,000

> Total firearm deaths 2004-2013: 1,256 (10th lowest)

> Violent crime rate: 640.4 (the highest)

> Permit required to buy handgun: No

> Poverty rate: 9.3% (2nd lowest)

There were roughly 20 firearm deaths per 100,000 residents in Alaska, nearly double the national rate. As in many other states with high gun-death rates, the vast majority of deaths were the result of suicide. Unlike most states on this list, however, Alaskan households were quite wealthy. A typical household earned $72,237, roughly $20,000 more than a typical household across the nation. Other types of crime were also more common in the state. In fact, Alaska had the highest violent crime rate in the country at more than 640 violent crimes per 100,000 residents.

2. Louisiana

> 2013 firearm death rate: 19.1 per 100,000

> Total firearm deaths 2004-2013: 8,552 (13th highest)

> Violent crime rate: 518.5 (5th highest)

> Permit required to buy handgun: No

> Poverty rate: 19.8% (3rd highest)

Louisiana was the only state with the most gun violence where firearm-related suicides accounted for less than half of all gun deaths. In fact, homicides accounted for roughly 51% of all gun deaths in the state. As a result, Louisiana had the highest gun-related homicide rate in the country, at 9.7 murders per 100,000 residents. Louisiana also had the highest average firearm death rate in the country over the 10 years ending in 2013, when there were 18.8 firearm deaths per 100,000 in the state, compared with 10.2 across the country. The high number of gun deaths may be tied to gun policy. Louisiana, like many of the states on this list, does not require gun owners to have a permit to purchase a firearm, nor must they register their weapons.

3. Mississippi

> 2013 firearm death rate: 17.7 per 100,000

> Total firearm deaths 2004-2013: 5,056 (24th highest)

> Violent crime rate: 274.6 (18th lowest)

> Permit required to buy handgun: No

> Poverty rate: 24.0% (the highest)

With 24% of its residents living in poverty, Mississippi had the highest poverty rate in the country. Poverty and low educational attainment rates may contribute to higher rates of gun-related deaths. Mississippi had the second highest gun-related homicide rate in the country at 7.4 homicides per 100,000 residents. In general, crime was not particularly prevalent. There were just 274.6 violent crimes reported per 100,000, compared with 367.9 such crimes per 100,000 across the country. Mississippi also led the country in unintentional deaths by a firearm, with 0.6 deaths occurring for every 100,000 people, three-times more frequent than across the country.

4. Alabama

> 2013 firearm death rate: 17.5 per 100,000

> Total firearm deaths 2004-2013: 7,915 (16th highest)

> Violent crime rate: 430.8 (14th highest)

> Permit required to buy handgun: No

> Poverty rate: 18.7% (7th highest)

Nearly 19% of Alabama residents lived below the poverty line, the seventh highest rate in the country. Additionally, the state had among the worst educational attainment rates nationwide, which may have contributed to the high gun-death rate. Between 2004 and 2013, an annual average of 16.6 people were killed by firearms, the fourth highest rate in the country. Despite a drop in 2011, the firearm death rate increased to the state's 10-year high in 2013. Other types of crime in Alabama were also prevalent. There were 430.8 violent crimes reported per 100,000, a higher rate than the 367.9 violent crimes across the nation.

5. Montana

> 2013 firearm death rate: 16.8 per 100,000

> Total firearm deaths 2004-2013: 1,540 (12th lowest)

> Violent crime rate: 252.9 (11th lowest)

> Permit required to buy handgun: No

> Poverty rate: 16.5% (19th highest)

Montana had the fifth highest rate of firearm deaths, at nearly 17 per 100,000 residents. Further, gun-related deaths have been steadily increasing since 2006. In fact, Montana registered the highest firearm death rate in the decade ending in 2013. Other types of crime — including rape, robbery, and motor vehicle theft — were relatively less common in the state. There were roughly 253 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, significantly lower than the violent crime rate across the nation of nearly 368 per 100,000. As in many of the states with high rates of gun deaths, suicides made up the vast majority of deaths. More than 85% of gun-deaths were due to suicide, the 10th highest such share in the country.
