    Homicides in Chicago soared by 60 percent in the first three months of 2012, continuing a troublesome trend that began late last year. Nonfatal shootings also rose sharply in the first quarter, Police Department statistics show.

    The worsening violence comes as the Emanuel administration touts its efforts to combat gang crime and add officers and resources to some of the city's most dangerous neighborhoods.

    Chicago police blame street gangs for much of the violence. Another contributing factor for the rise in homicides was the unseasonably warm weather this past winter, according to criminologists, but Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy scoffed at that explanation earlier this year.

    So which community in Chicago had the highest increase? Englewood.



    What this article doesn't tell you is the racial breakdown of Englewood. According to year 2000 census data:


    Black ~98.0%
    Hispanic ~1.00%
    Other ~0.80%
    White ~0.36%
    Asian ~0.06%

    Info pulled from:



    Englewood, Chicago - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    West Englewood, Chicago - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Yet blacks wonder why whites don't trust them?

    Odd, considering that Illinois is the last stronghold regarding concealed/carry law.

    Gawd, everyone keeps acting as if humans were on the endangered species list. This shit is about as important as the squirrel I accidentally ran over today.

    Odd indeed how jurisdictions with strict anti-gun laws have the highest crime rates. This Chicago spike in homicides not only comes with a 30 percent solve rate, but has happened with an increased number of police on the streets.
