Large Cities All Over America Are Degenerating into Gang-Infested War Zones

Michael, The Economic Collapse, January 6, 2013

Large U.S. cities that the rest of the world used to look at in envy are now being transformed into gang-infested hellholes with skyrocketing crime rates. Cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Camden, East St. Louis, New Orleans and Oakland were once bustling with economic activity, but as industry has fled those communities poverty has exploded and so has criminal activity. Meanwhile, financial problems have caused all of those cities to significantly reduce their police forces. Sadly, this same pattern is being repeated in hundreds of communities all over the nation. {snip}

There are approximately 1.4 million gang members living in America today according to the FBI. That number has shot up by a whopping 40 percent just since 2009. There are several factors fueling this trend. Unemployment among our young people is at an epidemic level, about one out of every three U.S. children lives in a home without a father, and there are millions of young men who have come into this country illegally and have no way to legally support themselves once they arrive in our cities. Gangs provide a support system, a feeling of “community”, and a sense of purpose for many young people. {snip}

Let’s take a closer look at some of the large cities all over America that are degenerating into gang-infested war zones . . .

East St. Louis

East St. Louis has a national reputation for being a city that you want to avoid. The following is from a recent Bloomberg article about the growing crime in that community . . .

Dodging open manholes where thieves had swiped cast-iron covers, Stephen Wigginton drives the crumbling streets of his hometown, East St. Louis, Illinois, pointing out new landmarks in America’s most violent city.

There’s the shopping mall where a police officer was shot in the face, a youth center that saw a triple homicide in September, and scattered about the city of 27,000 are brightly lit gas stations that serve as magnets for carjackers, hit-and-run robbers and killers.

“It’s the Wild West,” said Wigginton, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Illinois.

Today, the murder rate in East St. Louis is 17 times higher than the national average, but financial problems have forced huge cuts to the police budget. The number of police patrolling the streets of East St. Louis was reduced by 33 percent between 2008 and 2011. {snip}

Camden

Camden, New Jersey is another city that has experienced huge cuts to the police budget. Their police force shrank by about a third between 2008 and 2011. Today, Camden is considered to be one of the most dangerous cities in America and it has a murder rate that is about ten times higher than New York City.

The gangs have a very strong hold over Camden, and kids kill kids on a regular basis in the city. The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article about the horrible violence that is plaguing Camden

At the vigil last week, residents prayed that Camden would simply find peace and that the masked gunman who killed Jewel Manire and Khalil Gibson would be caught.

As it grew darker, Michael Benjamin stood toward the back of the crowd, his son huddled even closer now, and shook his head.

“I’ve known at least 45 kids who’ve been killed in my lifetime,” he said, the boy holding his finger. “I stopped counting in 2004, though.”

Chicago

In recent years there have been massive cuts to the police budget in Chicago due to financial difficulties. At the same time, gang activity has dramatically increased in the city.

{snip} The murder rate in Chicago was about 17 percent higher in 2012 than it was in 2011, and Chicago is now considered to be “the deadliest global city“.

If you can believe it, the number of murders in Chicago during 2012 was roughly equivalent to the number of murders in the entire country of Japan during 2012.

{snip}

Approximately 80 percent of all murders and shootings in the city of Chicago are gang-related, and as the gangs continue to grow in size the violence in the city is going to get even worse. {snip}

Detroit

I write a lot about Detroit, but that is because they are a perfect example of where the rest of America is headed if something dramatic is not done.

Detroit used to be one of the greatest manufacturing cities the world has ever seen, but over the past several decades the economic infrastructure of Detroit has been gutted and now there is very little industry left in the city.

Over half the children in the city live in poverty and a sense of hopelessness hangs in the air. At the same time, financial problems have forced the city to lay off huge numbers of cops. Back in 2005, there were about 4,000 police officers in Detroit. Today there are only about 2,500 and another 100 are scheduled to be eliminated from the force soon.

Meanwhile, crime in Detroit just continues to get even worse. There were 377 homicides in Detroit in 2011. In 2012, that number rose to 411.

{snip}

New Orleans

New Orleans was a crime-infested city even before Hurricane Katrina hit it in 2005, but life has never quite been the same since that time.

{snip}

If New Orleans was considered to be a separate nation, it would have the 2nd highest murder rate on the entire planet. There are some areas of New Orleans that you simply do not ever want to venture into at night.

Meanwhile, the police force has been such a mess in recent years that the federal government finally decided to step in. It is hoped that the “reforms” will mean less crime in New Orleans in future years, but I wouldn’t count on it.

Oakland

Today, there are 626 police officers in Oakland, California. That is about a 25 percent decline from the 837 police officers that were patrolling the streets of Oakland back in December 2008.

Predictably, criminals have stepped in and have taken advantage of the situation. At one point in 2012, burglaries in the city of Oakland were up 43 percent over the previous year.

If you can believe it, more than 11,000 homes, cars and businesses were burglarized in Oakland during 2012. {snip}

Stockton

Police cuts in the city of Stockton, California have been so severe that the Stockton Police Officers’ Association ran a billboard advertisement with the following message at one point: “Welcome to the 2nd most dangerous city in California: Stop laying off cops!”

At the same time, crime in Stockton continues to get even worse. There have been more than 250 gold chain robberies in Stockton since the month of April, and there is no indication that crime in the city is going to slow down any time soon.

So what is the solution?

Should we have everyone turn in their guns?

No, that would just make the problem even worse. The gangs aren’t going to turn in their guns. The only people who would turn in their guns would be law-abiding citizens. That would just make them even more vulnerable to the violence and crime that are starting to spread like wildfire all over the nation.

We don’t have a gun problem in America. What we have is a gang problem.

{snip}

Just recently, the city attorney of San Bernardino, California told citizens living there to “lock their doors and load their guns” because the police force in that city is being cut back again.

And that is good advice. As the economy continues to decline and as millions more Americans fall into poverty, the violence is going to get even worse.

      AMERICAN CITIES BECOMING BLACK MOGADISHUs

      A place were all whites are in danger of being killed, raped or beheaded. These American Mogadishus are sanction and protected by the power of the US Government. This is why secession is inevitable.

      Can I add Asian? I know they don’t cause as much mayhem as the blacks and mexicans/aztecas, but as Jared Taylor has said– he doesn’t want his grandkids looking like Fu Manchu (sp?)

      • Caracal

        Exactly. Asian aliens may not be as violent, but there are millions of them in the US now who are taking lottery school seats, high paying jobs, college admissions, housing opportunities, and entire neighborhoods away from native and local White Americans wherever they move in. Add the inbred cheating, corruption, residential brothels, sweat shops, street gangs, miscegenation and you can already say bye bye to entire neighborhoods and towns on the West Coast, especially in the SF Bay Area.

        New Asian immigrants to US now surpass Hispanics:

        • JohnEngelman

          When Asians move in crime goes down. I watched that happen during the early 1980s when I lived in downtown San Jose, California. Before the influx of impoverished Vietnamese refugees the downtown area was blighted and dangerous. Now San Jose has the lowest crime rate of any big city.

          Orientals earn their positions with the best universities, the best corporations, and in the best neighborhoods because they are loaded with IQ power.

          • Morris Thecat

            this is not the case in Lowell MA where the cambodian gangs have been a big problem

          • JohnEngelman

            By “Orientals” I mean Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Mongolians, Tibetans, and Vietnamese.

          • shattered

            The Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, and Vietnamese certainly have gangs in their communities here in the U.S. and have since their arrival long ago but they are a different breed with different values than the typical Crip/Blood African-American or Hispanic streetgang. The latter are much more volatile and dangerous to the average law abiding citizen.

          • shattered

            The Khmer, Viets, and to a lesser degree Pinoy gangs developed as a response to Africa-American and Hispanic victimization. When they first began arriving and forming their communities, they were not producing gangs. But the African-Americans and Hispanics began to assault and rob them at will and so they actually took on the mentality of their persecutors. They ride with the blacks on the streets and in the prisons here primarily because of their rivalry with the Hispanics. But unlike black and Hispanic cultures which celebrate gangsterism, it is a shameful thing to be a gangster in these Asian cultures and they are looked down upon even by their own families for choosing the criminal path. The Lowell MA Khmer situation is somewhat unique and apart.

          • anonymous

            “”””The Khmer, Viets, and to a lesser degree Pinoy gangs developed as a response to Africa-American and Hispanic victimization.”””

            That was pretty much the same reason white gangs formed in prison. It was why the neo nazi gang on the movie American History X formed. They created their white gang to defend themselves and their neighborhoods from black and mexican gangs.

          • shattered

            We’re not talking about white gangs in prison. You are but we’re not.

          • Jefferson

            If Asians are such a violent threat to U.S society, why aren’t Asians overrepresented in the U.S prison population ? The U.S prison population does not have a higher percentage of Asians than than the general U.S population as a whole.

            Asians are actually underrepresented in the U.S prison population. Only 1 percent of the U.S prison population is Asian, even though Asians make up 5 percent of the general U.S prison population.

            http://www.bop.gov/news/quick.jsp

            The vast majority of Asian youths are not thugs like Trayvon Martin, because if they were you would seen an over representation of Asians locked up behind bars.

            Even Jared Taylor will admit to the extremely low prison incarceration rate for Asian Americans.

          • liberalsuck

            Asian gangs are like (white) biker gangs: not as dangerous or influential as black and Hispanic gangs are.

          • Svigor

            “Asian IQ power” is code for “yellow people create crappy societies that they flee in favor of societies created by whites.”

            Not much of a superiority argument coming from Mr. Engleman…

          • shattered

            They have a real work ethic. I’ve seen large numbers of Asians in these communities working hard displaying a well socialized family structure. They don’t retire either. I’ve met 80 year old Asian women who get up every morning and go to work in their family businesses as if they were 35 without complaint. It’s pretty amazing the dedication and commitment, especially amongst the older Asians, I’ve witnessed to the family and community in general.

          • Liberalsuck

            I also see older white people still working, so what? It’s like when I hear some of my neocon friends glee over the fact “Those Mexicans work hard” or “They are good about saving money” and I point out, “I see lots of hardworking white men do those jobs (lawnmowing, construction, etc) and they have families to feed and the government doesn’t give them tax dollars to support them and their family.” Sometimes I’ll say, “I dont care if they work harder than whites. I don’t care if they’re cheaper. I don’t want them here. ” Maybe if we just said the last line more and more we’d be a little bit stronger as a race. Not saying we shouldnt get our young white people to work and do physical jobs.

          • joesolargenius

            I agree and would like to add that whenever you go into any plant where Americans make up a small percentage of the employees it is usually because that business hires through a temporary employment service.The staffing agency hires spanish speaking dispatchers so they can tap that market and keep the wages down. These dispatchers whom are usually the grown children of illegal aliens then replace the Americans whom leave a job with non Americans because those here illegally will pay a bribe ( La Mordida) to get a stable ten dollar an hour job.l Our jobs are being sold to criminals whom once they become the majority in the workplace start ganging up on and running off the Americans that are still there.How can we expect our returning military to find employment when the person doing the hiring knows they will lose five hundred dollars by hiring them instead of an illegal.

          • joesolargenius

            The ones fleeing that type of society are those intelligent enough create a better life and realize that they must do it elsewhere or the government and an army of have nots whom are unable to improve their lives will drain them of their profits..

        • anonymous

          It’s kind of like what Keith Alexander said about Jews vs. Muslims on The Political Cesspool. “A Jew won’t cut your head off, but they will destroy your career and push destructive liberal policies on you.” I’m paraphrasing, but it was something along those lines.

      • JohnEngelman

        The first time I saw Oriental girls I must have been six or seven. It was probably a television documentary of schools in Taiwan or Japan. I thought, “With white girls some are pretty and some are not. With Oriental girls all are pretty.”

        • Morris Thecat

          no, few are pretty, and that is only when they are young.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002919200750 John Smith

          That’s because asian men and women take care of themselves. They don’t allow themselves to turn into wales. They’re also not feminists.
          If white men/women did the same they’d go back to being the beauty standard of the world.

        • Svigor

          Yellow chicks are ugly. Pan-faced, sallow, with flab where there should be tone. But they do find white guys, any white guys, more masculine than yellow men, which is their real appeal.

        • David Ashton

          So you said, at least once before.

          An early individual sexual “imprinting” experience: massed ranks of unusual eyelids, straight black hair, childlike flat faces and creamy skin, denied to millions in the white west who like variety, maturity and lovely profiles in their choice of females.

        • TheTRUTH

          Oriental girls don’t do anything for me, however, I get your point. I think there are plenty of attractive women in most races, except blacks. They’re features are ape-like which is a huge turn off. I always had a thing for Indian girls.

          • anonymous

            I do find Asian females pretty, but I won’t sleep with one or have children with one. I will take a plain looking, conservative white woman over a hot, sexy Asian girl to have a family with.

        • skara_brae

          “With Oriental girls all are pretty.” Tis in the eye of the beholder old chap. Consider Margaret Cho.

        • vladdy

          Oh, God another thread turning into a novel of high praise for Asian girls! Do you know how much the women into white nationalism are sick of that subject? And it really isn’t exactly pleasant to be told (by implication( how much “less: you are than women of another color.
          As for the argument about Asians. Perhaps it’s the difference between Southeast Asia and other parts of Asia?

    • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

      Our official society is way too quick to blame gangs per se. That’s because it’s a semi-PC diversion away from the real problem, race itself. Also, there has grown to be a cottage industry, the gang mitigation-industrial complex, as I call it, of gang “experts,” academics, gang ethnographers, “former” or “reformed” gang bangers, ex-cops or ex-LEAs, and others, looking to make a quick buck off our propensity to blame gangs, because they convince someone with money (usually governments) that they have the magic solution to keep gangs from forming, ergo if gangs don’t form, then the ghetto becomes a first world paradise full of astrophysics majors.

      Cops and law enforcement budgets: Sure, there need to be x number of cops in the ghetto. And the x number needs to be significantly higher than it is in first world neighborhoods. But at some point, the law of diminishing marginal returns kicks in. Another factor is that you could have 100,000 cops, every single one of them as competent as Wyatt Earp, Marshall Dillon and Joe Friday, patrolling Detroit, and it won’t make a bit of difference if the justice system behind them is a revolving door. If the justice system backing the cops up is weak, then the law of diminishing marginal returns kicks in at a far lower value for x number of cops on the streets.

      I’m sure you saw this in our local snooze this morning:

    • Tom_in_Miami

      To be blunt, these cities have lots of negroes and Mexicans and not enough police, although I don’t have any idea how many police are needed. One cop to follow each negro around and whishper in his ear? “Don’t rob and rape that girl; don’t kill that man; don’t set that homeless person on fire…”

      • bluffcreek1967

        And pull up your pants; put that crack pipe away; don’t rape that 72 year old white woman; and get a job!

  • http://twitter.com/AgentAxis D.B. Cooper

    No…one…CARES!! Even the relatives of black crime victims would rather live under a black mayor, and his black police chief, as long as “their people” are in charge. The richer, affirmative action blacks will flee to the white suburbs until they have enough people to elect “their people”.
    Wash, rinse, repeat. Wash, rinse, repeat.

  • ZB

    As someone who is half white and who really likes this site, I’d have to surmise that when the article states “Unemployment among our people..”, the average reader of Amren is thinking….”Whose ‘people’ do you have in mind, exactly?”

  • ArmenianWN

    How Ironic is it that New Orleans, once known as “The Paris of Dixie”, now has crime rates comparable to Grozny, Karachi, and Gaborone and other war zones of the third world?

    • Refugee

      They should look into Greenville Ms. At one time it was at least twice the size of East St. Louis; now, due to it’s crime rate (among other things) it has a little under thirty-five thousand. It was the Queen City of the Delta, but it will be just another Mound Bayou if it doesn’t get drastic help.

  • JohnEngelman

    All of this is probably true. Nevertheless, according to FBI, Uniform Crime Reports the rate of violent crime in the United States has been declining since 1992. The decline has continued during the Great Recession.

    http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/uscrime.htm

    This did not happen because of social reform and social welfare spending. It happened partially because the prison population has tripled since 1980.

    http://www.jacksonprogressive.com/issues/lawenforcement/punishment.pdf

    The increase in the prison population is one of the few social experiments in the United States that has worked.

    In addition the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973 had lead to the abortion of millions of potential violent street criminals. The kind of females with the highest abortion rates are also most likely to give birth to boy babies who grow up to be violent street criminals.

    Additional declines in the crime rate can be achieved by replacing Aid to Families with Dependent Children with free abortion on demand. In addition we should continue to put more criminals into prison longer and treat them harshly enough that potential criminals will be deterred.

    The high cost of incarceration can be reduced by the thorough exploitation of prison labor, and an end to educational and recreational opportunities. Criminals do not deserve those opportunities. They have debts to pay society.

    • Luca

      Excellent post. One further suggestion to your last paragraph. We should export/outsource our criminal population of lifers to overseas third-world countries and pay those countries annually about 1/10th of what we now pay. We should do this in lieu of foreign aid. I believe Liberia would be a good candidate

      • Tom_in_Miami

        Now you’re talking. I’ve worked in a federal prison and I can tell you that it takes more in terms of supervision to keep a convict on a task than the amount of work you could get out of him. The UK used to send their convicts to America and Australia, among other places, where they had to work or they didn’t eat. We can’t punish convicts here enough to make them work, so Liberia or some functioning African country might be the answer. The Africans would probably be happy to take them at…oh…ten bucks a day, much less than what we are currently spending.

        • JohnEngelman

          After some flogging I think we can make convicts work.

          • Svigor

            Who’s more likely to stand in the way of implementing that? Liberals or Conservatives? Democrats or Republicans?

          • David Ashton

            I read that the Chinese government plans to close some of its forced labor camps. Disappointed?

        • anonymous

          The blacks in Liberia won’t kiss their ass the same why whites do. Not to say the blacks in Africa like white people, but they aren’t going to cut black Americans any slack. They would expect them to work and earn their keep and wouldn’t give them government freebies or pay for all their children.

    • concernedcollegekid

      Great post. One thought: If we exploited prison labor (which I think is a good idea and WAY more realistic than anything including “sending them back to Africa”), then prison labor as an entity would begin to “look like” slavery, because it would be an overwhelmingly black group of people being forced to do physical labor.

      Do you really think the entire country would be okay with mass incarceration starting to resemble slavery more and more, given how many leftists probably already think “mass incarceration” is “the new Jim Crow”? (there’s a book out called “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in an Age Of Colorblindness” that I keep seeing in bookstores everywhere)

      I can never think of any solutions to the “black problem” that I actually think we could get a majority of the country to agree to.

      • JohnEngelman

        In his “Politics” Aristotle said some people are inherently good for nothing but slavery. He was not talking about an entire race that is good for nothing but slavery. Neither am I. Nevertheless, some men of all races seem born for a life of crime. The only way to get any value out of these men is through forced labor.

        This is the direction we are moving in. As I pointed out, the prison population has tripled since 1980.

        Joseph Stalin demonstrated that a prison system can be run at a profit to the state. Most of those in Stalin’s prison system were political prisoners, or German and Japanese prisoners of war kept there long after the end of World War II. They did not deserve to be there. Nevertheless, the model of Stalin’s prison system should be our ideal in finding ways to inexpensively reduce the crime rate, while preventing those with genetic inclinations toward crime from spreading their genes.

        Prison labor helped the Soviet Union prepare for World War II. It sustained the Soviet Union during the Second World War. It helped the Soviet Union recover from the War. It is the way to get value out of those who would otherwise be useless, worthless, and dangerous.

        There are too many people on this planet. Too many are the wrong kind of people.

        • Luca

          We should have a ballot initiative to trade the death penalty for life at hard labor. Not life at the gym and the library.

          • Morris Thecat

            No one ever got “hard labor” out of a black man. This is a ridiculous idea.

        • Morris Thecat

          you are completely wrong, the soviet union would not have survived without lend lease aid. The prison labor did not make much of a contribution and the SU melted before the NAZIs at the begining of the German invasion. The SU was far from prepared , prison labor was therefore not effective at all, not in the least. The system of government which put so many in prison actually enabled the NAZIs to make their fantastic territorial gains in the first year of Operation Barbarossa. Stalin had totally gutted the military leadership with his purges leaving nothing but incompetence and confusion when the German’s attacked. He also alienated the populations who originally greeted the German Army as liberators. It was only the foolish policies of the NAZIs that destroyed this sentiment and created a huge resistance movement of saboteurs and a strong guerilla movement. The US shipped an enormous tonnage of goods to the SU, primarily through two routes- over the arctic and through IRan. This is the only thing that enabled the Soviets to hang on and then to turn the tide. Your idea of using black prison labor to make a profit for the state is extremely misguided. They are not good workers, they are not productive and they regularly revolt and riot. It would be more costly than anything else.

          • Luca

            Who cares if it turns a profit. They are not there for leisure or entertainment. They owe a debt to society which cannot be measured in dollars. They need punishment for their crime and any time spent at labor is better than time in the gym, basketball, the library or if front of cable TV and their labor will help to offset the prison lifestyle they now enjoy.

            The weather and logistical nightmares destroyed the Nazis in Barbarosa. After that the Red Army just mopped up. The prison labor mentioned was a factor but probably not a major one. Who can really trust the figures coming from the Stalin era? The USSR had mind-boggling resources both natural and labor related even though they were poorly managed.

          You might be more interested in objective contemporary accounts of German prison/labor camp methods before WW2 was launched. They also fitted the bill with regard to your last three sentences though from a different “genetic” perspective.

          You’re wrong. Economically-not talking about ethical & other reasons- GULAG system was simply inefficient. There are analyses from Solzhenitsyn to Anne Applebaum that show this demonstrably.

        • David Ashton

          There is a case for constructive prison labor as reformative and punitive but also to compensate victims and pay for security overheads, but the devil is in the detail. The Nazi “work makes (you) free” followed partly the Soviet “corrective labor” which was copied in turn partly by the Maoists. The huge slave labor system, which roped in millions of “innocent” people for long sentences in harsh environments, helped the USSR to lay its industrial foundations, although the experience after the German invasion was more complicated than you suggest (see e.g. Edwin Bacon, “The Gulag at War” [London 1994]).
          You personally may be pleased that the way screw maximum surplus value “out of those who would otherwise be useless, worthless, and dangerous” to the communist state was devised by one of your super-intelligent Jews called Naftali Aaronovitch Frenkel (see e.g. Steven Rosefielde, “Red Holocaust” [NY 2010] p.76 &c). It meant working people to death in starvation conditions well before WW2. “People who have survived both Soviet and Nazi concentration camps (and several of them have written their stories) reluctantly admit that the Soviet brand is more horrible” (Eugene Lyons, “Our Secret Allies” [London 1954] p.173).

          Your idea of corporal punishment to ensure that prisoners work would no doubt increase your love for Communist China and its cheap exports. In 1991 a US crew secretly videotaped a putative importer asking what would happen if merchandise was unsatisfactory, and the administrator saying that “prisoners would simply be beaten until the quality improved” (June Teufel Dreyer, “China’s Political System” [London 1993] p.228).

        Put them on exercise bikes that generate electricity and pay them per KWH produced. Then present them with their cost of arrest, victims bills, hospital bills, judicial system bills and their room and board while incarcerated. Tell them: “Keep pedaling DeShawn, the quicker you pedal, the quicker you pay your debt to society, the quicker you get out of here”. Little do they know they’d have to pedal to Pluto and back to even come close to paying their debt’s.

          This is a good idea, like the treadmills in Dickensian London poorhouses.

      • David Ashton

        I haven’t seen that new book out, but I hazard a guess that it is another example of one written by a “liberal” or “Cultural Marxist” trying to head off in advance a policy likely to be proposed by “racists” or “reactionaries”, i.e. intelligent and law-abiding people; like “The Right to Reproduce”, &c. A color-blind policy of sterilization for people who produce more and more children that the “majority of the country” have to support, or who treat their offspring with gross cruelty, might be agreed.

    • alas

      Wow that actually makes great sense. Someone born in 1973 would have been 19 in 1992, just the age crime would start to be highest.

      On a sidenote, can anyone imagine what the US would look like today if abortion had been kept illegal? How many more Africans would there be then! You have to admit, liberalism as bad as it is does sometimes help our cause.

      • JohnEngelman

        I wish the blacks who robbed me at gun point, who mugged me, and who nearly murdered me had been aborted.

        • David Ashton

          There is certainly a case for sterilizing people who keep producing children they cannot possibly themselves support.

      • Joseph

        Sterilization is much more cost-effective and permanent than abortion and does not require any liberal intermediaries or pontificators to implement.

        If you want “benefits” you get Norplant or sterilization as you have demonstrated that you are not financially competent to have children.

        If you don’t identify the likely baby-daddies, you get no benefits. If you IS a baby-daddy, you are sterilized upon second illegitimate child if you are not regularly supporting with evidence of ongoing legitimate employment.

    • Morris Thecat

      It has happened because black abortion rates went up 20 years ago. But the real problem is that you talk as if we can use the current system to turn things around. No. we can’t. They are about to try to seize our guns, if they succeed in that, all will be lost. My guess is that this is where the white man will finally stand up. He has been too comfortable since the 50s and has not wanted a fight, so he has let too many things slide, but he has been backed up to a cliff, he either makes a stand and fights back or it will be all over. The current system? Forget about it. If he makes a stand, he will correct the errors that led to the current situation, and those of the “Culture of Critique” , who are largely responsible for the whole thing,will not fare well. SO being of that culture, of course you want to try to desperately manipulate the machinery that your kind has broken. But that machinery is broken,

    • Svigor

      So, who’s more likely to build more prisons and keep up the heavy policing, and who’s more likely to go in the opposite direction? Democrats or Republicans? Liberals or Conservatives?

      • Refugee

        Heavy policing only leads to lazy cops gathering revenue, not crime fighting. You put more Quota Cops on the streets and they go after petty crimes that garner them money and impressive numbers. They don’t care about real crime.

    I’d hardly call ESL “large” anymore. It’s only “large” in that it shares a name with a city that was “large,” but is itself isn’t that “large” anymore. I think certain bigger suburbs of Los Angeles have more people than St. Louis.

    • razorrare

      I would have to agree that the human population of ESL is quite small…0.8% White

    If I’m not mistaken…didn’t they take away the guns in Chicago? Looks like it wasn’t such a great idea!

      I happened to be watching youtube last night and came across a documentary about Liberia on the Vice channel, the blacks were resorting to cannabalism to obtain special powers in battle etc. and aside from that acting like blacks in the States would, if the government was not functioning. All those inner-city black neighborhoods are only a thread away from that. It is in their nature and if the government aid stopped, I imagine it would only be two or three weeks before the American blacks went entirely back to their jungle mentality (not like they’re terribly far from that now).

      • HadEnough

        Was that the Liberia program featuring that well known military genius, General Buck Naked? If so, the show was a total hoot, right?

    Let’s see: East St. Louis 98% bantu and most dangerous, eh? No, I’ll have to confess impure, racist thoughts. I guess Johnson’s Great Society can now be declared a failure.

      So a 98% black population gets you shocking rates of murder, poverty and general mayhem but on the other hand, you get …….uh………..um………..wait, it will come to me……uh……….

        Conservatism. Blacks are like living roadblocks to white liberalism and socialism.

          I ACTUALLY REALLY AGREE WITH THIS. Well said. You deserve more thumbs up than you have!

          For example, I think the very liberal way they do things in Scandinavian countries, both fiscally and socially, would work perfectly well if they kept their countries completely ethnically Scandinavian… and managed to have enough children to maintain a large enough working-age population to support their elderly.

    On January 1, The Baltimore (Maryland) Sun newspaper published an article
    City killings up to 217 as gun violence falls: ‘Gangs were shooting each other in the head’…”

    According to the story, much of the killing is gang-related: “For the year, more than 60 percent of those who died in shootings were shot in the head, which experts say points to a high number of execution-style killings.” Head shots are the signs of assassins. “Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said the number of homicides was up largely because the city was the stage for two violent gang wars that were fueled by targeted attacks meant to kill, as opposed to unplanned bursts of gunfire that might have left victims wounded but alive.”
    Less than 50% of Baltimore homicides are cleared.

    • The__Bobster

      The head shot is becoming more common in Philly, too. I thought it was because the spoonies were trying to improve on their piss-poor 1:5 kill ratio. Better emergency care was allowing more and more of their targets to survive.

    • Howard W. Campbell

      Baltimore is outpacing Detroit. The Homicide detectives in Deadtroit don’t even bat .200.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      It sounds like the surest way to avoid being shot in the head is to simply not join a gang. Would anyone like to guess what the gang membership rate among teenaged non-Hispanic white boys is?

    New Orleans now has a white mayor, Mitch Landrieu of the Landrieu political dynasty. From Wikipedia: He was elected Mayor of New Orleans on February 6, 2010, garnering 66 per cent of the city-wide vote and claiming victory in 365 of the city’s 366 voting precincts….Landrieu won with some 67% of the vote, with wide support across racial and demographic lines. His outright victory over 10 challengers in the first round of voting eliminated the need for a runoff election.

    From a news report on his crime fighting strategy:
    The mayor today said law enforcement had identified around 600 people they believe are responsible for most of the violence, and that they belong to about 39 loosely organized gangs. He says New Orleans Police, the FBI and other law enforcement agents know who and where these people are, and a new multi-agency gang unit will be targeting them.

    “The message to these violent groups is direct and consistent,” the mayor said. “This city will be safe.”

    We’ll see.

    • http://www.facebook.com/chilly.willy.395454 Chilly Willy

      Yeah, I dunno, to be blunt I’d say expecting miracles out of a Landrieu will lead to disappointment.

  • IndridCold

    I keep waiting for some smart mathematician to nail down the exact tipping point, as it relates to the white percentage, at which a population slips into this chaos. It would seem to be something higher than 30 percent though. I am thinking somewhere in the 40 percentile range.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      Once a neighborhood is 30% black, it rapidly becomes 70% black as whites who can afford to move do so. That’s where your 30% white figure comes from.

    • Non Humans

      I don’t think that it is even that high. 15%-25% at most.

    What do all these cities have in common? Come on, what is it? Can you guess? Can you guess?

    Is the usual excuses that are bandied about, that it is those “liberals” or the “Democrats” taking over these cities that did this?

    No. It’s race.

    And only 1.4 million mostly black gang members out of population of 315 million did all this damage. We need to get serious about discussion race.

    Chicago: 2,707,120

    If you classify Hispanics as white (as the DoJ does when Hispanics commit crimes), then Chicago would be over 60% white.

    One of my favorite sludge metal bands Eyehategod(sorry religious posters) has a song called new orleans is the new vietnam…I guess that makes chicago the new somalia and detroit could be the new zimbabwe…I’m surprised Miami didn’t make the list…we had a bantu chewing a guys face off in broad daylight. I guess most of the miami crime goes unreported because its deep in terrible neighborhoods where the cops generally won’t even go into after dark. Its much easier and safer to bust tourists for dui’s when they’re driving back to their hotels from the south beach clubs….camden was already the worst hell hole in jersey when I graduated high school 15 years ago….I wonder why there isn’t much this much crime in dirt poor appalachia….

    It would be easier to list those cities not affected by what equals gang violence, even if not by organized, ‘official’ gangs, but with the same results. Every city, every town, every community now includes areas where responsible whites do not tread. Ever.

  • aj

    They like to pretend that evil predatory gangs trick their “good boys” into being criminals. It is just another excuse they use to justify atrocious behavior.

    Also they love to blame the “root cause” of “hopelessness”. Which basically means we need to give every black woman in the ghetto a $80,000 year job pretending to “work” in some government office.

    The author thinks something dramatic needs to be done. Well, maybe. I suppose laws alone can be “dramatic.” In this case, all we need is some ink on paper. We need to give people back their right to disassociate. All the gov’t needs to do here is nothing; simply stop spending taxpayers’ money preventing them from deciding who they associate with as their customers, employees, neighbors, etc. Simply let people protect themselves from these apes by creating their own neighborhoods, communities, schools, institutions, and businesses.

  • shattered

    I know exactly what it looks like too. One can get murdered simply for walking down the sidewalk and not clearing out of the way of an active gang member coming in the opposite direction. This isn’t the America of yesterday.
