Guns in Chicago: a night on the frontline of violence

Видео



It is a city in the shadow of gun violence: a city where 345 people have been murdered so far this year – the majority of them, killed by guns.

The figures are quite simply terrifying – earlier this month there were 40 shootings in just seven hours. Chicago’s fractured communities feel abandoned – with little faith in the police – nor in their political leaders. While police say co-operation is hard to come by.

Paraic O’Brien is in Chicago where he’s been meeting those at the frontline of the violence.

    This is about poverty at its roots. If you benefit and profit from this country more than the average person, it’s likely you are doing it at the expense of others.

    This is strictly a cultural thing, It's not about poverty of education. I was raised poor, but we had a high school and a local grocery store where I worked, moved away went to college. Some just don't want a good life it seems.

    Sorry to ask this but who’s fault do you think it is that the situation is like this? Would we say it is the police? social inequality? racism? Or the lack of good family values and strong positive role models?

    Bottom line gang culture and lack of parental guidance is definitely creating an environment where drugs and violence is the norm. All thanks to clueless democratic rule.

    There is no gun crime . There is no gun violence.
    There are only criminals. who use guns.
    The problem is controlling the criminals — not the guns.

    All races are exactly identical in personality, intelligence, and all other mental traits, as evolution cannot work on the brain, only from the neck down. This is all due to relentless white racism, all the time, everywhere—it explains everything.

    "Violence plagues Chicago." "We're losing black and brows bodies to gun violence." Terrible thing. This Violence creature is really evil, someone should do something, go where the creature sleeps and kill it, or at least imprison it. Poor black people, chosen as targets by this evil being, Violence — why must they suffer so much? White racism, of course.

    The United States military has an Intelligence Quotient cut-off point of 83. It is illegal to recruit anyone into the military with an IQ below that, because they simply aren't capable of useful work, and pose a hazard to themselves and everyone around them where dangerous hardware and weapons are concerned. Everyone who joins the military is tested so they know what a prospective recruit's aptitudes are.
    The mean, or average IQ of African Americans is 85, so at least half of them are less intelligent than that.

    Combine that with low impulse control, testosterone-fueled aggression and low empathy, and you have a young man ready-made for acts of thoughtless, stupid violence. If that's not enough, absolve him of all responsibility with a constant stream of victim-hood propaganda coming out of the Academy and Media to give him cover for his stupid violence.

    Europeans have always sneered at the US problem with gun violence, supposing that it is a product of our Cowboy mentality and lack of culture. Now that they have their own oversupply of violent black minorities, perhaps they understand a little bit about how protracted the problem really is.

    This problem could be solved in four weeks. Apprehend the murderers and execute them publicly within a week. Don't have the stomach for that? That's why you have the problem.

    Gotta love Democrats — they know how to get all their votes from blacks for nothing. The welfare system and marrying the govt for everything result exactly in this predicament. Democrats come every election and parade Jay Z and Beyonce do a little rap and twirk and they got you again. They only roll out Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson when a thug gets shot by a white cop. But blacks shooting blacks…barely get on the news.

    Pres. Johnson said—-‘ I will have these nigras voting Democrat for the next 200 years.’…when them Democrats rolled out the War on Poverty. Well..another hundred years maybe blacks will figure this out.
