The United States saw an increase in homicides by roughly 9 percent last year, and more than one-third of that increase came from neighborhoods in Chicago where just one-third of residents live, according to an analysis by The Wall Street Journal.

Chicago and Baltimore have seen violence rise to or near 1990s levels in the last two years, whereas other cities have seen a drop.

In contrast, areas in Los Angeles have experienced a dramatic drop in violence. Areas with 30 percent of the metropolis’ population are responsible for one-quarter of the 13 percent drop in the nation’s murder rate from 2002 to 2014.

The nation’s capital has also seen a decrease of murder, which the authors attribute to gentrification and new gang initiation and community policing efforts.

TheWSJ’s analysis shows that murders have been taking place in sections of Chicago or Baltimore where poverty has worsened, as well as areas with less of a police presence than in the past.

A George Mason University criminologist’s research, cited by TheWSJ’s authors, showed “that about 1% of city streets produce 25% of a city’s crime, and 5% of the streets produce half the crime.”

Chicago has seen an explosion in violence, with the city seeing 771 murders, an increase of 57 percent from 2015. The city has had more murders than New York and Los Angeles combined.

President Donald Trump has frequently criticized Chicago for its plague of violence, calling the city a “total disaster” in November 2017.

    The real reason is obama’s open borders policy, and the heroin pipeline from Mexico to Chicago. Now the hispanic gangs have taken over the drug supply networks from existing gangs.

    All of it 100% predictable…

    • John

      Yup its one big race war in Chicago between the Black and Hispanic drug gangs… but you wont see that on the news! Doesn’t fit the diversity narrative and they cant choose which side to blame..

      • darkhorse

        so they blame White privilege for everything!

      • blueskybigstar

        The mayor, the CIA, and crooked police are to blame. This is always the case.

        • John

          Maybe elements of both?

    • darkhorse

      well, gee…what would the wealthy families do if their only source of income was diminished? They NEED the drug flow…

      • jehanne

        Did you have a legitimate point to make?

        • darkhorse

          do you have a reason for breathing, bagel-smelling HASBARA?

    • Cynical Old Bastard

      Pretty much, huh?

    • blueskybigstar

      Crooked mayor and crooked police

  • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    More gun control and liberal sjw policies will fix this right up.

  • Phil_Ossifer

    Not surprising at all.

    The political left has been making a big deal out of “statistics show that violent crime rates are going down in urban areas.” But…WHY do the statistics show that? It’s because statistics are based on crimes reported. It has been an open secret for some time now that large city police departments are not responding to trouble calls very quickly, or at all in certain areas which implies that the cops are effectively going on an undeclared strike. A violent crime that isn’t reported doesn’t make it into the statistical database. That does NOT mean that the crime didn’t happen.

    So…if violent crime rates are going back up based on actual reports, this implies that the REAL violent crime rates are at least an order of magnitude worse than the “official” statistics say they are
    Shitcongo and Boogiemore are just two examples of a much larger problem.

    • darkhorse

      statistics are bullshite

  • Safety and paradise are not found in “gun free zones!!!”

    The chitkago is only one example of the abject hypocrisy of ‘gun control to save lives’ in the same breath with wholesale murder of the helpless and innocent via ‘abortion on demand’ …

    • Gil G

      Since guns are freely available there it proves gun ownership doesn’t mean safety either.

      • RMS1911

        4. States that allow registered citizens to carry concealed weapons have lower crime rates than those that don’t.

        True. The 31 states that have “shall issue” laws allowing private citizens to carry concealed weapons have, on average, a 24 percent lower violent crime rate, a 19 percent lower murder rate and a 39 percent lower robbery rate than states that forbid concealed weapons. In fact, the nine states with the lowest violent crime rates are all right-to-carry states. Remarkably, guns are used for self-defense more than 2 million times a year, three to five times the estimated number of violent crimes committed with guns.

        The real problem is dumba$$ democrats and their retarded ideology.
        They should move to a different country that already has all the gun laws they want.

        • Cynical Old Bastard

          No. The problem is with the sheeple. Simple are that.

          Stand your ground. You gave an inch and they took a thousand miles. It’s real easy… Refuse to comply. Ya don’t have to be shitty about it and start shooting folks or blowing up buildings.

          Just stop. Stop everything. Stop buying. Turn your phones off and drive nowhere. Buy or use nothing of theirs.

          Just stop.

      • SP_88

        Guns are not freely available there legally. Only the criminals have guns. And this is exactly the result I would expect from such a one sided situation.

      • Gil … where did you get THAT delusion??? chitkago is by law a gun-free zone!!! Ask Kommrade Rahm Emanuel!!! … And now he wants an ARMED UN FORCE to come in and either ‘keep the peace’ or ‘restore order’ — something the Sovereigns who live there could do themselves were they not disarmed!!!

        You’re almost right that ‘gun ownership doesn’t mean safety’ but neither does automobile, truck, aircraft or boat ownership!!!

        • Gil G

          “Has some gun controls law = guns are banned” – how gun nuts sees things.

          • @Gil G … there’s obviously nothing wrong with you that a brand new set of brains wouldn’t cure …

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            They don’t make one in his size. . .

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            In Chicago, “banned,” is the correct term.

  • Roy Hobs

    I remember that Leave it to Beaver Episode where Wally was being initiated in that Black gang, but then thought the Mexican gang would be better…………………
    Uhhh…………………….that was the boring 50’s…………never mind

    • jehanne

      No doubt Eddie Haskell goaded him into joining.
      “Ward! Come quickly!” “Wally is acting so strange!”

  • John C Carleton

    Democrats and oppressive anti-gun laws.
    Wow! Works great huh?

  • darkhorse

    I guess Rahm is succeeding…

  • Karmas_halo

    Pretty sad that they comprise that much of a nation wide stat. I’m sure Rahm has nothing to do with it right?

    • Karmas … WHO do you suppose is running that murderous fiasco ??? Little Bo Peep???

      • Karmas_halo

        I was being sarcastic…I know it’s that putz Rahm and is crooked cronies. The dems have been in charge of that city for 82 years, it shows!!

        • So was I … 🙂 … I was a Registered Democrat member of the Daley machine in 1972 … the only thing more rampant than the open corruption were those who enjoyed every minute of it !!! … but the streets were safe at any hour except in the Black Neighborhood of South Side …

  • Cynical Old Bastard

    Let them die.i
    Less vermin that way.

    • Laurence Almand

      Amen. The more they kill each other, the less burden to society and the honest working taxpayer.

      • Cynical Old Bastard

        Exactly. I’m all for charitable donations of nerve gas grenades. Easy-read/iconographic instructions included free of charge.

  • Mike

    and the other 2/3 are mostly in liberal regressive utopias like thugcago.

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      “…more than one-third of that increase came from neighborhoods in Chicago…”

  • Laurence Almand

    What the stats do NOT say (because they are afraid to) is that most of this violence is caused by Blacks, not Whites or Asians. The same holds true for Detroit, Baltimore, and other major cities.

  • blueskybigstar

    In Los Angeles, the root cause ended up being a very crooked police force selling weapons and drugs. I researched more and learned that this is always the case.

  • blueskybigstar

    Comment implicating CIA, mayor, and crooked police for selling and distributing guns and drugs, just like in Los Angeles and all other cities overridden by violence was taken down. Documented.
