Noted in Passing: 600 and Counting –Chicago Set to Run Out the Clock with a Record Year!

Ripped from the pages of…Chicago Crime, Murder & Mayhem | Criminal Infographics | HeyJackass! | Illustrating Chicago Values

Well, I guess that this is bad news but at this point, it’s also sort of normal. Isn’t it?

Chicago, Chicago that murdering town
Chicago, Chicago I’ll shoot them all down
Bet your semi-auto you’ll get your gun off in Chicago, Chicago
The town that Lollipop Lori couldn’t shut down

On State Street, that Hate street, you’ll just want to pray
You don’t get hit by the bullets from Broadway
You’ll have no time, no time left in your life
I saw a man, he shot up with his wife
In Chicago, Chicago my home town

    Last year, after the Memorial Day weekend annual shoot-out in the Windy City, I was visiting a friend. We were in a deep conversation about the WuFlu and the tv was on, when the news report blathered on about “gun violence” and his wife said, “look at that.” to which I, without even thinking of my words, spewed out, “n*ggers killing n*ggers, nothing new here.”
    Oh boy, did I get an earful. The host’s position was that my language was “offensive”. I argued that there is no word that could come forth from my filthy mouth that could ever possibly match the offensiveness of people wantonly shooting other people. My argument fell on deaf ears.
    You see, some people think that certain words are so hurtful that those words should never be uttered….and well, I guess “gun violence” to them is just the by-product of not enough gun laws and could never possibly be caused by ignorant, maladjusted, violent criminals.

      How could you possibly mistake those assholes for friends?

    Chicago’s most notorious statistic is symptomatic of a broader, general lawlessness that has spread throughout the city. The reported crime figures of all sorts are staggering (e.g., over 1,000 carjacking’s ytd). Most reported crimes result in no arrest. I live in an area with only a modest amount of gun crime. But there were over 100 reported felony incidents within approximately 600 ft. from my home over a recent two week period. That level is not unusual for warm weather months.

    A friend of mine who was originally from Chicago calls it “Chimpcago.” And he’s black.

    Chicago is the perfect “model city”- of what happens to a once-thriving, huge & successful city that has since come under the control of Democrats, and filled with “African-Americans.”

    Stereotyping be damned, it’s a cold, hard FACT that the combination of those two elements destroys every city it happens to.

    Want to infuriate a Libtard? Ask them why 98% of all ghettos in the USA are run by Democrats. Gigantic coincidence?
    Then ask them if they’re a “Progressive,” and if they consider a city being turned into a ghetto as some kind of “progress.”

  • glyptodropem September 17, 2021, 2:22 PM

    While only a black person can be a n—-, certainly not every black person is one. I reserve that name for a specific individual that meets certain criteria. Are you a black unemployed useless street thug? Drug dealer/user? Car thief? Mugger? Baby Daddy several times over with different women? Think that piece in your waistband (holster, what’s that?) makes you all badass, and you will use it for the most trivial of reasons? The majority of the nightly violence in all major cities across the U.S. is perpetrated by n, mostly against other n but a lot of times on innocent citizens. Every night on the news when they report yet another shooting in Hartford/New Haven/Bridgeport etc. I always say to myself “Who cares, n killin’ n ! Keep it in the urban jungle.”

      It really isn’t about skin color alone. It is a mindset of poverty….or is it a poverty of mindset?
      I have seen plenty of white n*ggers.

      Chris Rock had a very famous routine – which he has since repudiated – on the question of n-words versus black people.

        Chris Rock – Niggas vs. Black People | Genius

        Now we’ve got a lot of things, a lot of racism in the world right now, Who’s more racist? Black people or white people? Black people, you know why? Because we hate Black people too! Everything white people don’t like about Black people, Black people REALLY don’t like about Black people….


        Shit, a black woman that got two kids, going to work everyday, bustin’ her ass, HATES a bitch with nine kids gittin’ a welfare check. Like, bitch stop fuckin’! Stop fucking! Stop it! Put the dick down! Put it down! Get a job! Yes, you can get a job! Get a job holdin’ dicks! Whatever you do, get paid to do it!

        Tired of this shit, man! I’m tired! Tired. Tired. It ain’t all Black people on welfare! Shit! White people on welfare too! We can’t give a fuck about them! But we just gotta do our own thing.
        Can’t go, “Oh, they fucked up, we can be fucked up!” That’s ignant! White people don’t care! First of all, they try to make it look like… There ain’t even that many Black people in the country. okay? Black people are ten percent of the fuckin’ population. Black people are in New York, D.C., L.A., Chicago, Atlanta… Like 10 places. Okay? Ain’t no Black people in Minnesota! The only black people in Minnesota is Prince and Kirby Puckett. Shit… The whole rest of the country, the other forty states, is filled up with broke-ass white people. Broke-ass, livin’ in the trailer home, eatin’ mayonnaise sandwiches, fuckin’ they sister, listening to John Cougar Mellencamp records! Shit. Get the fuck outta here, man! And they need ya help? Naw, man!

  • ghostsniper September 17, 2021, 2:51 PM

    Looked at some of the videos at the link, pretty graphic stuff.
    Appears to be open range on negro’s, by other negro’s.
    They shoot and kill each other right on the street as if they know there is no chance they will be held accountable by the law. Free for all. As long as it stays in the ghettos I see no problem with it.

    • Gordon Scott September 18, 2021, 9:25 PM

      It doesn’t, though. In Plymouth, MN, a second ring suburb of Minneapolis, they finally arrested the thug who shot a community leader–with his teen son beside him–because the father didn’t let him merge on the freeway. And across the St. Croix River, they found an SUV in a Wisconsin cornfield. Four bodies, all of whom apparently knew the killer. All are from St. Paul, where it started.

      And none, and I mean NONE, of these people could hit the side of a barn from ten feet. So there’s a very good chance they’ll hit someone half a block away.

      Minneapolis: dreams of being the San Francisco (pre poop), but in reality it’s just Chicago Lite.

      • ghostsniper September 19, 2021, 7:03 AM

        Yes, the ghetto’s are expanding, rapidly. I too have learned. When we moved to the woods 16 years ago I didn’t realize that it would be possible for thousands of 3rd world refuges to be brought into the country and plopped down within 15 miles of me. So we’re going to take the only option available, move even farther out into the sticks. I’m not going to be a victim of ghettoism and I’ll do what I have to to survive and thrive. I advise all sane people to do likewise but don’t get to close to us. Stay the fuk away. Go make your own little slice of life.

    Mayor Lori Light-in-the-Loafers has come up with a great new idea for dealing with Chicago night life:

    “Chicago is known for its notorious gang problem, now more than ever—murders in the city are up sharply in 2021 from recent years—and the city’s stalwart mayor, Lori Lightfoot, has hit upon a novel solution to fight back: Ask the gangs to show up in court to face lawsuits!”

  • Jewel Atkins September 17, 2021, 4:00 PM

    I wonder how many blind ivermected people selfishly took a bed in an ER in Chicago that a shooting victim could have had. Speaking of which, today, one of my husband’s clients called to tell him that her fully vaccinated daughter had the Chinese Bat Flu – Delta flavor. After chuckling about it, we swigged a cup of ice tea and horse dewormer. We’ll see just how well the Dr. Zelenko Covid protocol works.

  • Joe September 17, 2021, 7:04 PM

    There are good blacks and bad blacks. It is the bad blacks that are destroying the country and they are in the minority. Time for the good blacks to do some ass whopping–old west style. Problem will be solved very quickly.

    • Steve in PA September 18, 2021, 4:46 AM

      I’ll be looking forward to the day that happens. However, neither holding my breath until then or expecting it. Pretty sure the Kingdom will Come before that.

    • EX-Californian Pete September 18, 2021, 9:08 AM

      “Bad blacks are the minority?”
      Statistics might say different.

      73% of black children born in the last few decades were abandoned by their fathers at birth.

      Blacks commit 36% of the violent crime in the US even though they are only 13% of the population.

      In Chicago, IL, blacks commit 76 percent of all homicides, despite composing 35 percent of the city’s population.

      Blacks are 10 percent of the population in Los Angeles, CA, but commit 42 percent of its robberies and 34 percent of its felonies.

      In New York City, blacks committed 75 percent of all shootings, 70 percent of all robberies, and 66 percent of all violent crime, despite only composing 23 percent of the population.

      Looks like the “bad ones” are actually a majority.

  • Jewel Atkins September 17, 2021, 7:38 PM

    Even more destructive to all civilization is White Progressive Feminist Women. I once read a comment that went something like this: Learning about art, history, music, poetry and literature through the lens of Post-modern, Marxist, feminism, is like learning about love through rape.
    Feminism destroyed the family, and the black family in particular. It has destroyed the patriarchy, and with it the sense of family history and ancestry. It has taught women to despise themselves, even as they hate men. And now, wonder of wonders! No one needs women, because there are more than enough simps and soylents to replace them. These insane, broot and barren beasts devour all that is good and beautiful and true. They fly into fits of rage when young women become traditionalists. For them, there are myriads of genders, but none for the feminine or masculine. All of this madness is entwined in the Big Lie. You Shall Be Equal to God.

    • Gordon Scott September 18, 2021, 9:28 PM

      Truer words, Jewel.

  • mmack September 17, 2021, 9:21 PM

    I was born, raised, lived, educated, and worked in Chicagoland until nearly five years ago. If you’re immersed in that you know who commits the crimes and who should be targeted for arrest.

    But of course, it’s RAAAAAACIST to notice that, so productive people like my family leave Silly-nois and the crime, extortionate taxes, and overcrowding.

    I hope the Earth opens up and swallows my old home state whole.

    • Christopher L Hunt September 19, 2021, 5:31 PM

      Downstate is nothing like the northern corner, or Springfield, for that matter. So screw your hopes.

      • mmack September 20, 2021, 8:54 AM

        Check out the crime rates in Urbana, Peoria, Decatur, East St. Louis, or Cairo and get back to me. All mid state or downstate. Also, if you live downstate may your town never receive the blessings of Section 8.

  • Annie Rose September 18, 2021, 5:59 AM

    Now you varmints pipe down. Our Sheriff Lori has a brand new plan for dealing with gang bangers and their itchy trigger fingers. She has threatened to sue ‘em. That should frighten the sasparilla right out of ‘em and peace shall soon reign in the Stinky Onion (Chicago’s translated Native American name.)

    • John Fisher September 18, 2021, 4:17 PM

      I know lawyers in Chicago have big brass ones, but big enough to sue a Chicago gang? I doubt it.

  • Snakepit Kansas September 19, 2021, 6:32 AM

    And those folks keep voting in Democrats….suing is easy, collecting is difficult. Those thugs do not have bank accounts to raid.

    Only Divine Intervention can fix this, and we should just stay out of the way. Be thankful that none of us were born into this or we would likely be part of it.

    • ghostsniper September 19, 2021, 7:12 AM

      No one can help where they were born but everyone can help where they stay.
      The reasons why people stay in the ghetto’s are low intelligence and/or laziness.
      People like that will be failures and problems for others wherever they live.
      The gov’t steals big money to deal with that problem and their methodry is flawed, as usual.

  • Vanderleun September 19, 2021, 8:04 AM

    My secret bad thought is, whenever I read these Chicago stories, “Is this supposed to be bad news or good news?”

  • tired dog September 19, 2021, 7:32 PM

    Lightfoot should find a place in the Obama Center Wall of Fame.
