    Send this blog to Top Cop. He’s under the impression that major crime is way down in Chicago and the media keeps reporting it as “fact”!

    • 4 corner Hustler insane

      Ya really top cop what a joke
      Wait til feb 14th gangs are having bloody valentines day
      There will be over 100shootings I bet
      It will be the worst year ever for gun violence in Chicago

      • InalienableWrights

        And the big difference is that people in Chicago are disarmed. This happens in all places where people are disarmed.

    • InalienableWrights

      These shooters would not be so brave if your legislature had not disarmed the populace.

      To make things fair I think that a member of an Illinois legislatures family needs to be taken out and shot every time a mundane gets shot because the legislature disarmed them. This would IMHO be justice.

      • Bernie Getz

        wonder if the hebrew mayor was at ballet lessons with his tutu on prancing , singing “fiddler on the roof” …oy….wait till these clowns really get wild when the SHTF

  • MB

    About a week ago it was reported that there were no homicides or shootings in a 24 hour period. Top cop and his new plan got all the credit. Now who do we blame for this bloodshed on a cold weekend in January? It doesn’t make sense. Why don’t we blame Charlie MaCarthy!!

  • Andy

    I’m shocked! I was under impression the guns were illegal in Chicago. How can you have so many shootings if guns are illegal???

    • g-man

      It is only illegal for law abiding, tax paying citizens to have then guns . Hillary Clinton says you don’t need guns, just love, in your house. That is why she has 24 hour protection by people with guns !!!!!

      • Marcus

        so does barry.

  • THEE Yard Ape

    These pathetic numbers of wounded are proof that these negros need target practice!!! Sorry Leroy, I’m sure you are as disappointed as I am.

    • Lyndia

      Hey dog, you are always commenting on Black crime. Is your race without crime?
      I do not think so. You people like prono with young children. That is a white man’s crime and killing your mama, they love to do that too.

      • InalienableWrights

        Give em’ heck Lyndia . Blaming this on race is NOT going to solve the problem. I think if you look to guberment you will see who creates most all of our problems.

      • Leroy Goldberg


        How about teaching your kids about killing their mama!!

      • THEE Yard Ape

        Hey b! tch, we’ve been down this road before. Obviously you’re a stupid bitter negress, thus I won’t waste my time explaining OUR position AGAIN !!!

        @headcase inalienable – go ahead and side with this species. RACE has everything to do with this.Black, white or purple, a criminal is a criminal, and I don’t discriminate. BUT, it is hard to overlook the FACT that 75% or more of the violent crime in IL. & NATIONWIDE is commited by the black species. Get off your conspiracy theory soap-box and get a clue on reality!

      • InalienableWrights

        I don’t care if 90% of crime is committed by blacks Yard Ape you are not doing a thing or contributing a thing to solving the problem. From your comments 90% of stupidity is committed by whites.

      • g-man

        learn how to spell before giving lectures to others. Education is free and it appears your lacking some. If your a minority, you get even more free paid by White’s.

      • THEE Yard Ape

        @inalienable – you really need to take off that tin-foil hat and make up your mind who side you will be on when this sh!t really hits the fan !!!! Here’s an idea, perhaps you should go down to junglewood and axe these negros to turn in their weapons, and you can hoarde them in your bunker.

      • InalienableWrights

        Yard Ape I am on the side of those that fight for liberty and tell the guberment tyrants that I am not their slave.

        Color, sex, or country of origin are not an issue with me.

    • InalienableWrights

      Which means if you were armed and ” well regulated” as the Constitution suggests that they would most likely be dead and no longer a threat on the street.
      I don’t care what color they are. They deserve some 25 cent justice.

    • Leroy Goldberg

      Oh you know it YA. While wounded is better than nothing it is rather disappointing.

  • Vinny

    It is mostly race ! does this go on in the polish, Russian, Korean , italian,and white neighborhoods? No! Didn’t think so ! It’s ok one dies and one goes to jail ,I’m ok with that! especially when we don’t live in Chicago !

    • InalienableWrights

      Vinny …. get a clue as to the causes of these problems.

      • Vinny

        I have a clue actually its a fact, The Ghetto to start, I am not prejudice however if it looks like a dog and barks like a dog more than likely it’s a dog!
        Until Chicago legalizes drugs it wil get worse,guaranteed!

      • Dr Chen

        very wel said Vinny !

      • InalienableWrights

        And you position is not going to solve anything Vinny. And I don’t think you do understand. In short it all revolves around freedom or the lack thereof

  • Dr. Chen

    Vinny I am with you we moved out of Chicago for many reasons as well, we don’t even go to the taste of Chicago anymore ! Let them all kill each other there but you forgot to add the most important thing 2 link cards off the street as well.

  • Lyndia

    Talk about Black crime? Being Black is a crime. I am a criminal. I am no good.

  • Vanessa

    I usually don’t leave comments on here however Dr Chen and I seem to have the same views on this, I was car jacked several years ago and also moved from Chicago into the burbs because of it, since than I have focused on payback ! Any way to get a gang member locked up I find a way I spend hours watching them daily , I have sent at least 70 to jail since I started my vigilante tactics! @ Vinny it’s more than just legalizing drugs check out my blogs on Craigslist

  • lil Kay

    Hey Vanessa we should hang out get them all aTas team
    I don’t care if we make up the stories or not, even if they are innocent they’re guilty of many other crimes in which they did commit.

  • CFLC

    Shootings don’t matter as long as they are not homicides. Chicago only worries about homicides, not the aggravated batteries. Thus, crime is down in the eyes of the city.

  • Lyndia

    Leroy, I have children that are doing quite well. You do not have any because you can’t give a woman a baby because you are sterile AND YOUR THING IS SMALL PLUS IT DON’T GET HARD AND YOU CANNOT MAKE A SPIT BABY MF.


    • Marcus

      you are an ugly black woman.

    • Lyndia

      I be all worked up now. I go have my drink, get high and have sex wif somebody like I always do.
      End of the month be here, I gets my checks and do it again and again. I luvs to be black.
