Chicago and the Don Zaluchi Policy by John Fleming

Blood is washed away from the sidewalk after a 24-year-old man was shot and killed on the South Side of Chicago, Ill. According to published reports, the man was the 73rd homicide victim and the 39th victim under the age of 25 in Chicago this year. -- NBC

Don Zaluchi runs Chicago, although it's actually grey-black powder.

If they had any sense or American identity left in them, they'd realize that they are every one his sacrificial pawns. The Don wants this, every child gunned down makes the case for firearms confiscation, and the reversion to slavery complete. But this, in this country, will never happen without risking civil war. And the Don knows, the rest of the country doesn't care either and believes as he does. Who cares if soulless animals off each other? There's no downside to letting this continue, or so he and his associates think.

The Don could stop this. But it would mean a severe squeeze on the rackets to make the streets safe. The Capo's would get themselves a new Don. That the Don only calls ineffectively for firearms confiscation, while doing nothing to actually make the city safe for all People, "evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism"

Instead of killing each other, they should march on City Hall and purge with extreme prejudice every Alderman, Ward heeler, precinct and police captain they can find. And for good measure, torch Hyde Park, raze it, and salt the earth.

It's too late for apologies. "[I]t is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." If they don't, they're dead anyway. If they do, they have a fighting chance to "institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness".

Don Zaluchi:

I also don't believe in drugs. For years I paid my people extra so they wouldn't do that kind of business. Somebody comes to them and says, "I have powders; if you put up three, four thousand dollar investment, we can make fifty thousand distributing." So they can't resist. I want to control it as a business, to keep it respectable.I don't want it near schools! I don't want it sold to children! That's an infamia. In my city, we would keep the traffic in the dark people, the coloreds. They're animals anyway, so let them lose their souls.

I've just finished viewing all 5 seasons of The Wire via Amazon, as it recently became available 'free' to Prime subscribers. I'd been skeptical of the hype touting the show as "some of the best TV drama out there", but now having seen it first hand, I have to say it's well above the quality of anything on the network or cable channels - absolutely relevant to the plight of Chicago and other American cities, which are dying at the hands of moral adolescents and the broken social policies bred by their collectivist fetish.

The show is set in Baltimore, but it could just as easily have been done in Chicago. While it's commonly perceived as run-of-the-mill "cops vs. drug dealers" fare, in fact it is anything but procedural, and portrays a surprising range of the causes-and-effects that result in the sort of human detritus, social breakdown and bloody violence Chicago has bred since I left that cesspool decades ago. To call it "gritty" would be to trivialize it. While it's replete with many of the same stereotypes that inhabit lesser productions, the show has something... a waxing, waning hopelessness, for lack of a better description... that rings true.

One recurring, sardonically delicious irony is the lack of self-awareness displayed by various characters' sporadic bashing of "Republicans", "Cheney", NCLB and other tribal liberal shibboleths. Only the writers know if it was intentional, but the conservative-bashing lyric is blatantly, and sometimes almost comically juxtaposed with the utter social dysfunction, corruption, narcissism and general breakdown - from the Mayor at the top, all the way down to the "corner boys" who hand out heroin on the streets... when they're not (literally) blowing each others' brains out - that is endemic to, and indeed sustained by nominal Democrat policies.

IMHO, The Wire is still timely, and worth a viewing.

You are absolutely correct about The Wire.
