Police shootings down, criminal killings up in Chicago

Chicago police killed eight citizens in 2015, half of the number killed in 2014, when it was 16.

Meanwhile, homicides in Chicago shot up 13 percent, from 416 in 2014 to 470 in 2015.

Adding the two together, the odds of being killed in Chicago were 11 percent higher in 2015 than in 2014.

But the Chicago Tribune overlooked this, reporting:
While the video release of a Chicago police officer's shooting of Laquan McDonald prompted a domino effect of change, including the ousting of the police superintendent and a federal civil rights investigation, the department finished 2015 on an ironic note: Officers shot the fewest people that they have in years.
Chicago police officers shot 22 people in 2015, eight of them fatally. That's a 40 percent drop in the total number of people shot compared with 2014, when 37 people were hit by police gunfire and 16 of them were killed, according to department figures.
The Democratic Party in a desperate attempt to hang on to the black vote -- one of every four Democrats is black -- has begun a war on the local police, a war which has cost thousands of young black men their lives, not to mention the millions in property damage from riots.

The media is too dumb to add the two together, but the public does. The fallout likely will be ugly for Democrats in November.


  1. Dems have sown the wind, and will reap the whirlwind.

  2. Obama is hiding a dark secret that just came out and this effects you!

  3. Excellent source regarding Chicago violent crime statistics:

    It's a real website.

    1. I especially like the "shot in the junk" stats he has over there. Apparently the gangbusters like to shoot each other in the junk.
