Chicago police sergeant: "Tribal warfare" on the streets

Quote:CHICAGO - Chicago is in the grips of a deadly gang war. At least 275 people have been killed in the city so far this year and many more have been shot, many of them innocent bystanders to the gang violence. Among the latest victims were 12- and 13-year-old girls shot Tuesday night. They survived.

Sgt. Matt Little leads one of the teams in Chicago's Gang Enforcement Unit. There are about 200 such officers in the city-- versus 100,000 gang members.

"Almost all the violence we're seeing now is from the gangs," Little said. "When there's a shooting we'll respond to the shooting. We'll figure out where we believe the most likely area for retaliation is and we'll work that area trying to both prevent retaliation and possibly build a case on offenders."

CBS News rode along with Little's team as dusk fell on poor neighborhoods of vacant lots and high anxiety.

"The gangs have lost their hierarchy, so to speak, and without a chain of command, there's really nobody keeping things in check," Little said. The leaders are mostly in prison -- or dead. Those left are young, reckless, and often terrible shots.

This here could be the trigger
for martial law if it spreads to
other areas of the country.

place for this to start, fer so

Great thread! Yeah, certainly is curious this is being orchestrated in Rahm's city. Deserves a pin, I have a bad gut feeling this is a trigger event that will spread to other areas of the country.

A round of clap.gif for CBS news for allowing the embed of videos. Huffington post singled us out so we can't do that on this site. chuckle.gif Those shills for big government can't stand a critique of their shitty material. Their are far better sites than that lame ass rag, I've completely quit reading there.

good thread, i agree this could get damn bad quick if it spreads.

Tourism official: City must curtail crime wave

Chicago's extensive efforts to reinvigorate its convention and tourism industries could be damaged unless the city quickly defuses the violent crime wave that has exploded in its neighborhoods and nicked the downtown, the city's top convention and tourism official said Wednesday.

"We hope this sunsets quickly because all the good work we're doing regionally, nationally and internationally, if this is not contained in a reasonable period of time, it will have an impact," Don Welsh, president and chief executive of Choose Chicago, said in a morning meeting withthe Chicago Tribune'seditorial board.

The city has seen its homicide rate increase by 37.8 percent in the first six months of the year, to 259 killings, and another 18 homicides were reported as of Wednesday afternoon.

"We are nowhere near where we should be for international visitors or national U.S. visitors from the coasts, and we can grow this dramatically and with major economic impact for the city over the next few years," he said.

Why would anybody want to visit Chicago anyway? Sure as hell not for their pizzas. aaah2.gif

I'm pretty sure I have some relatives there though, my Dad's aunts opened a laundry there back in the days.

Unemployment's pretty high in Chicago, 25% for white youths and 45% for black. I can't see that improving any time soon. damned.gif

Sounds about like the numbers in Spain, only difference would be 'youth' instead of 'black'

Statistics don't lie. Well they may be off a bit, but give a good indication of a situation ...45% unemployed black people is almost twice that of the white population. wtf2.gif
