    The problem is a massive gang war.

    Well.....those Gangbangers and Organizations say otherwise. Which doesn't include any Syndicated or Mob elements.

    When you're fighting a menace such as Chick-fil-A, you have to make sacrifices.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Move over New York, the Second City is now the murder capital of America.

    According to new crime statistics released this week by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Chicago had more homicides in 2012 than any other city in the country. There were 500 murders in Chicago last year, the FBI said, surpassing New York City, which had 419.

    In 2011, there were 515 homicides in the Big Apple, compared with the 431 in Chicago.

    Here's my two cents why Chicago has earned its reputation.

    Chicago has been a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants for decades. It is no secret there is a link between illegals and drug smuggling. But as of late, the number of Americans crossing the border and smuggling in drugs has greatly increased especially where there is high unemployment as a means to make cash. Chicago and Illinois in general has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country.

    Chicago has one of the highest dropout rates in the country. With jobs scarce the uneducated are in competition with illegal immigrants for minimum wage jobs. It's more lucrative to sell drugs than flip hamburgers at McDonalds. Prostitution is more lucrative as well. These illegal activities are at the heart of the increase in gangs. These groups of people who claim a territory and use it to make money through illegal activities.

    Chicago has one of the highest number of births born to single women. These children are usually raised by Uncle Sam and have no father around to teach them by example personal responsibility. These children tend to be the ones that drop out of school and get involved in criminal activity to make extra cash while the government pays for their housing, food, utilities and health care. Chicago has been a Democrat stronghold for a very long time. Their policies of providing entitlements has actually taken away the incentive of individuals to become all they can. Why should they when the government is willing to provide the essentials. When a person is made to work for his food, he/she doesn't have much time or energy left for criminal activity.

    Heya Vesper. While most of that is true.....the black on black crime also comes into play due to the alliances thru the People and the Folks. What many are not seeing is how it is racial and between Blacks and Hispanics. While contending for the money makers.

    That is a very good point you make MMC. I think much of the Black on Black crime is directly related to territory disputes between gangs. But your point of it being racial between Blacks and Hispanics is a very valid point.

    It seems inevitable the whenever the problem of Black crime is mentioned liberals will be quick to charge 'Racism!' . This is largely why Black crime, which is destroying Black communities, continues unresolved.
