yo your rem 223 ness
please get a pencil and paper add up all the murders that occurred last year in all the cities you listed in you diatribe and I will wager that Chicago negros killed more people in one year than the total of all those other cities.
now go back In city records and you will see that the city of Chicago has be far more unsolved , UN INVESTAGED murders in the past five years that every city in America.
BECAUSE THE POLICE THERE ARE CORRPUT DYSFUNCTIONAL INEPT.
bought off the case
The blacks in Chicago have learned over the past 30 years that they can get away with murder selling drugs or what ever because there is no effective law enforcement in the city.
Despite the racist overtones here, you're right about one thing - EFFECTIVE LAW ENFORCEMENT. That's what Chicago and a lot of other cities need.

You have to put a lot of cops into the worst areas of the city, and put them ON THE STREET...not driving around in shiny cars from time to time.

They used to know this, but we've gotten away from it.

1. President Obama is a puppet who is owned by the parasitic financial community.
This statement needs no explanation. It is self-evident.
2. President Obama is dedicated to the overthrow of America’s constitutional republic.
President Obama told Congress in May 2011 that America’s bombing of Libya was authorized by the United Nations, and that Congress had no say in the matter.
More recently, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta informed Senator Jeff Sessions and the Senate that the U.S. military answers to the international bankers behind the new world order, United Nations, and NATO, not the U.S. congress or the American people.
3. President Obama is a proponent of the fraudulent endless war on terror because he wants to use the global chaos to finalize the covert establishment of a global fascist government.
President Obama has continued, and, in many areas, advanced the Bush administration’s illegal and undefined global war on terror. Although he has not consciously used the phrase “global war on terror,” there is no doubt President Obama is fighting this senseless, diabolical, criminal, and evil war in America’s name to accomplish hidden political aims that go against America’s interests.
The mindless global war on terror is not being fought to defend America’s security, but to drive the United States government to bankruptcy and collapse, and make way for the establishment of a new global fascist government.
The Obama administration’s foreign policy is radical, and criminal. It has funded and armed Al-Qaeda terrorists in Libya and Syria to change unfriendly regimes under the guise of supporting democracy activists against their oppressive governments. And it is also planning to bomb Iran alongside the discredited right-wing Netanyahu government in Israel despite not proving their case that Iran is a threat to Israel or America.
In his recent article called,“The 0% Doctrine: Obama Breaks New Ground When It Comes to War With Iran,” Tom Engelhardt wrote:
“Whether he meant to or not, in his latest version of Iran war policy President Obama has built on the Bush precedent. His represents, however, an even more extreme version, which should perhaps be labeled the 0% Doctrine. In holding off an Israeli strike that may itself be nothing but a bluff, he has defined a future Iranian decision to build a nuclear weapon as a new form of aggression against the United States. We would, as the president explained to Jeffrey Goldberg, be committing our military power against Iran not to prevent an attack on the U.S. itself, but a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.”

SOME truth in the first one, the second is pure nonsense, and while the third is true, there really HAVE been numerous terrorist attacks on the u.S. and its people and properties worldwide, whether you want to believe it or not.

You seem a bit paranoid, though maybe we don't disagree as much as I thought.

When you can not win with a post/comment you play the race card. No one pays any attention to the race card anymore - it has been over used and now most of us ignores it - Too bad - you lose

I proved the post was an example of race-baiting, so you reject it and simply repeat your idiotic "race card! race card!" shouts.

Right.

That's what you guys DO, isn't it?:)

Racist overtones? surely you jest? you need to get grounded in reality here.
Please note that Chicago has many other ethnic neighborhoods besides the black south side. facts are the facts time for you to face the truth.
Murders, homicides drive by shootings along with open market drug sales on the street in plain sight do not occur in Polish, Lithuanian, Italian , Jewish , Chinese, Greek, Irish, Russian neighborhoods. why is that?
But they go on and have been going on in the black community on the south side of Chicago for 30 years.
Look up the number of unsolved homicides in the hood and involving black on black killings over just the past 5 years.
those numbers are not racist they are facts. The numbers don't lie or bend the truth.
ya can't change the history of the south side of Chicago.
go on line look up the facts, going back five or ten years then tell us what is or what is not racist.
I've never said black neighborhoods didn't have a lot of crime problems, nitwit. And thanks for ignoring the BULK of my post in favor of TWO WORDS which always set you righties off.

It made my day...:)

You have no vision. almost a shill for the powers that be. Like someone on the SOMA from the book 1984. The potential is there, but you block the obvious of the deeds of men who say one thing and do another. President Obama could have achieved so much more four years ago. He and the Dems picked conflict.The war between the two parties was practically one way at that point. For giving in a little he would have gotten back a lot more. Agenda to a movement half the population is against is suicide. Ramming through legislation that most of the population is against and continuing wars and attacks on other nations while expanding police state laws and increasing taxes on the middle class he cares about so much is real hope and change. Face it. he is a traitor. And he will stab his own in the bank if it comes to that. the truth wil set you free...

several thousand unsolved un investigated homicides over the past five years on the south side of the city does not sound like effective police work as I would define it.
this dysfunctional inept police work does not occur anywhere else in America. why is that?
no city in the country has such a poor record of solving murders.
for some 40 years city hall has allowed a zone on the south side to exist in which laws are not enforced.
hence crime goes unpunished.
Exactly, so let's have more and better police out there on the beat. Which was what my post said. THANK you.

Nothing but the usual vague claims, hot air, and talking points from the radical right.

The FACT is that since Mr. Obama took office, the GOPee has been the party of reaction, of obstruction, and of intransigence. Look the words up if you don't understand, Einstein.
