'Tragic number': Chicago reaches 500 homicides - Yahoo! News
ignant coons cooning around. sad. (im black btw)
Still a stupid thing to say.
Sad as it seems that's just another year in Chicago. Murder rates are always high. It's the gang bang capitol of the United States east of California, tbh.
Hope all that bullshit can stop someday but I doubt it ever will.
mAN THIS IS tuff to hear. I live right here in Chiraq and the city is real fucked up at the moment. The amount of people being killed is ridiculous.
We need some stricter laws and we need to get programs for the young people.
with the way that the economy is crime is steadily on the rise in low income areas.
even in atlantic city where i live at, they up to 30 something murders within a mile radius of the heart of town with most of the people doing the killings and the ones being killed being young men under the age of 21. just a week or two ago, a 13 yr old and a 16 year old kid with both shot and killed in front of their homes in pleasantville, this city on the outskirts of AC. mad youngins getting busted for dealing coke and shit too.
camden, just about a 30 minute drive from here is even worse, ranked first in violent crime per capita and shit
but holy fuck @ 500.
yeah but Congress wants to spend its time worrying about a few dead American's in Libya
Shit is sad
shit is crazy but nothing new... shit what about back in the 90's when they had over 900 murders in chicago in a year smh... even as recent as like 02, 03 they were in that 600-650 range...
chicago has always been like this
Am I wrong ? Our own people kiling each other for no reason. Sad and pathetic. I view these people who undervalue life as less than dirt.
Fucking hell for a city of just over 2.5 mil residents that is a phenomenally high number. What he fuck are you people doing to each other out there?
Obviously, they're killing each other, jackass.
And who the fuck you calling you ppl?
Cant have it both ways. If the culture is going to continue to glorify violence n gang bangin u cant get all serious/activist about it when the numbers come out.
*This post isnt directed at anyone in this thread.
shit is real bad. you turn on the news/open the paper/turn on the radio the first thing you'll hear/see is "5 shot and killed in Southside" day in and day out. the worst part is a lot of these murders are innocent people.
All I know, is it has nothing to do with the easy access to guns.
If guns weren't legal, 500 people would have been stabbed to death.
Guns have nothing to do with people dying.
If anything, we need more guns.
If 5 year olds had guns they could defend themselves.
Also, everyone should get a Kevlar vest with a Big Mac combo.
I bet if we made drugs illegal, that would get them off the street...
You're right. One of us is ignorant.
Fact: USA has over 25,000 killings by guns every year.
Other countries with stricter gun laws, or bans, like Canada or UK have under 75 a year.
Last year, the UK had 8.
Chicago this year alone has more gun deaths than England and Canada combined over the last 5 years combined.
Access to guns are the difference.
