Chicago suffers gun violence surge over weekend

There are 49 comments on the Ilkley Gazette story from Aug 6, 2018, titled Chicago suffers gun violence surge over weekend. In it, Ilkley Gazette reports that:

Police attributed the spike in violence to gangs and US President Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, used it to criticise the city's Democratic leadership. By comparison, at least seven people were killed and 32 were wounded during the long Memorial Day weekend, which is often one of the most violent weekends of the year for the city, the Chicago Tribune reported.

63 people shot, 10 dead. The people in Chicago need to ask the President to call in the Military to go house to house, and remove illegal guns. Chicago has the strictest gun control laws in the nation. They have had Democrat rule since 1934. They have to be stupid not to see the Mayor turns a blind eye to their violence since he needs the bad guys to "get out the black vote", as did every mayor since then. The local police cannot do anything without permission from the Democrat Mayor. Anyone with the money to leave the city is leaving. There once was a silent agreement that the bad guys would leave the Loop alone for limited police interest. You aren't even safe in the Loop anymore.

A pogrom seems to be in order. Funneling the Dark Continent's 69 IQ upward bound challengers and sanctuaried illegals still confused by flush toilets shouldn't be difficult. People scoopers on a pigeon-holed Skyway would allow those acting out the Soros/Democrat Socialist plan to have a second option to jump.

It isn't just Chicago, it is every city under Democrat control, Baltimore, New Orleans, all of them.

It' NOT going to get any better unless the people in the street start talking to the Police. And with the culture of the Black Community today dialog with Cops ain't going to happen,so expect more weekends like this.

Black support for our race blind President has doubled to 29% of their 6% national voter impact. Hopefully, the Christian Blacks of Chicago are among that percentage. People need to turn on the vicious thugs and gangs, even if they are blood relatives. Murderers are murderers. It's time for the cynical Democrat Whites to be relieved of their power to manipulate minorities.

Keen observation.

Yes, large cities are diverse and have a lot of challenges.

Even Salt Lake City, a capital city in the reddest state in America, has a very liberal Mayor.

It is probably no accident that Republicans are not elected as Mayor of large cities.

At the local level, Republicans are not very good at connecting with a diverse group of people.

If you mean a Republican Mayor would not stand around, and let the people kill each other on weekends for fun, and practice, you are right. They would enforce the gun control laws, and jail the murderers. Clean up the neighborhoods so children could walk free without being shot dead. But the Democrats can buy votes for a bottle of cheap wine, and $5. bill. So they win.

Really, they got the Civil Rights and Voting Right due to Republican votes. Liberals voted against them.

I think Lawrence Wolf and Trump is a joke, got deported. I havenít seen either one post in a while.
Either that, or George Soros stopped paying them.
