Chicago Murders Top Afghanistan Death Toll

Michael Thompson, WND, January 16, 2013

The death toll by murder in Chicago over the past decade is greater than the number of American forces who have died in Afghanistan since the beginning of Operation Enduring Freedom, according to a police analysis.

In addition, police reports in Chicago—where President Obama once worked as a community organizer and where his former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, now serves as mayor—show most of the city’s massive murder mayhem is black-on-black crime.

A WND review of the Chicago Police Department Murder Analysis reports from 2003 to 2011 provides a statistical breakdown of the demographics of both the victims and offenders in the 4,265 murders in Chicago over that time period.

Of the victims of murder in Chicago from 2003 to 2011, an average of 77 percent had a prior arrest history, with a high of 79 percent of the 436 murdered in Chicago in 2010 having arrest histories.

For the same 2003-2011 period, blacks were the victims of 75 percent of the 4,265 murders. Blacks also were the offenders in 75 percent of the murders.

According to 2010 U.S. Census information, Chicago has a population of 2,695,598 people. The city is 33 percent black, 32 percent white (not Hispanic), and 30 percent Hispanic or Latino in origin.

For the 2003-2011 period, whites were nearly 6 percent of the victims and accused of carrying out 4 percent of the murders.

For the 2003-2011 period, Hispanics or Latinos were 19 percent of the victims and 20 percent of the offenders.


Operation Enduring Freedom, the name for the war in Afghanistan, which started Oct. 7, 2001, has seen a total of 2,166 killed. The war has been ongoing for 11 years, 3 months and one week.

Operation Iraqi Freedom, the name for the war in Iraq, which started March 20, 2003, and ended Dec. 15, 2011, saw a total of 4,422 killed.

In a city with some of the toughest gun control laws in America, where a handgun cannot be purchased, Fox News reported that Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy “acknowledged aiming at assault weapons misses the mark when dealing with Chicago’s gang violence.”


A WND review of the Chicago Police Department Murder Analysis reports from 2003 to 2011 provides a statistical breakdown of the manners in which people were murdered in Chicago.

Of the 4,251 people murdered, 3,371 died from being shot, with 98 percent of the murder weapons being a handgun. Thirty-seven people were killed with a rifle (caliber of bullet not specified), and 40 were killed with a shotgun.


Less than 1 percent of the murders in Chicago between 2003 and 2011 were committed with what the Chicago Police Department classifies as a “rifle,” the classification for an AR-15.

    three-quarters? how about 99/100

    the US Army just spent 10 years blowing the c**p out of tens of thousands of violent gun-toting Afaghanis, in order to bring peace and stability to that blighted area.
    They obviously they think this is a great method to eliminate gun-violence in the Third World.
    Just sayin.

    70 years ago, when Chicago’s population was 85% white, there was hardly any crime. only after the great migration, or the black undertow effect as Paul Kersey calls it, had Chicago’s crime rate risen to what it is now. the same thing happened to cities like Philadelphia, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Detroit, Milwaukee, Des Moines, Minneapolis, Toronto, Etc. The more blacks there are in a society, the more quickly it will begin to decline.

      Blacks have destroyed every city they have taken over. Not improved, not maintained, but destroyed. How much more proof do we need that they are not us?

      That’s the same thing in Detroit as I read in Paul Kersey’s book called ‘Escape from Detroit.’ He pointed out in the old days when Detroit was majority white, there was less crime and that even prior to 1965 when Detroit was 65% white and 35% black that the blacks then were committing close to 75% of the crimes. The 1967 Detroit riots only made more white people flee right before the ‘black power’ mayor took over.

    Chicago murders top Afghanistan death toll. If that is not evidence that diversity is our strength, than I don’t know what is.

    • None of the BRIC countries believe in divershity and that’s why they are doing so well.

    Not surprised when the police superintendent of Chicago says:

    “When people say concealed carry, I say Trayvon Martin.”

    “I say Trayvon Martin because the answer to guns is not more guns, and just simply putting guns in people’s hands is going to lead to more tragedy.”

    OK, Superintendent McCarthy: Get in there and take all the guns away from your home-grown gangs. Let us know how it turns out.

      What were black men in Africa doing before the white man came over and before they even saw a gun? They were throwing spears at each other and hacking each other up. Even white countries that are still close to 100% white with strict gun laws don’t have the crime levels that white countries who have been ‘enriched’ by diversity. Granted, I don’t want to disarm Americans or limit ammo or have taxes on ammo, but it’s not a gun problem; it’s a demographic problem to quote Ann Coulter.

    I’m saving this webpage and will use some of the statistics as appropriate when I comment over at Huffington Post. Most everyone over there is antiwhite and antigun so I doubt that facts impress the Huffpost types. Meanwhile, I wonder if the life insurance rates for blacks reflect the violence cited in the story. Probably not because it would be racissss to charge higher rates.

    • Non Humans

      Non-humans are too stoopid to think to invest in something like insurance. Hence Obamacare.

        Wow, are beagles non-dogs because they are not as intelligent as border collies? Stay classy my friend.

      Don’t even bother going to Huffington Post anymore. Those liberal/anti-white posters there are beyond hope. I argued with a liberal on a FB thread this morning. He was old enough to know better and too old to be a liberal, so any facts or rebuttals we threw at him didn’t change his mind. You might as well argue with a chair instead of a liberal or anti-white person. They are guided by emotions and a feeling of insecurity about who they are and their opinions; they are not guided by confidence or logic.

        They’re afraid of the truth. First, they’re afraid to research it. Some people I know are fearful of researching it on the computer. They think the government is tracking their movements. Second, they don’t want to see the evidence. Denial is a comfortable state to be in. Third, they’re fearful the truth would isolate them from the world. It’s easier to spout the rhetoric of the mind-controlled. For instance, ‘whites do it, too’ or ‘the south was built on the backs of black people’ (I’ve heard this one ad nauseum) or other nonsense.

    If you want to get rid of crime, get rid of the black people, not the guns!

  • Content of character HAAHAHAHAHHAAAAAA

    The police superintendant said “the answer to guns is not more guns”

    I bet that doesn’t go for the police. . .

  • Can’t have thug control, people! No sir. Thugs vote themselves folding money from libtardic enablers who also help to make their special brand of violence easier by shackling citizens who actually obey laws, even the most emo dumbasallhell ones.

    Blacks have a high murder rate everywhere in the world that they live. This is because they are closer in number of generations to a paleolithic way of life. Warfare was much more common during the paleolithic era, and a far higher percentage of males died violently. The best hunters and warriors had the most wives, and consequently the largest number of sons who inherited their skill in killing and their inclination to use their skill.

    Over a period of many centuries and several millennia the criminal justice systems of civilized nations remove those with propensities toward violent crime from the gene pool. This is why whites and Orientals have lower murder rates than blacks and Hispanics. It is also why the emphasis in the criminal justice system should be on capital punishment and long prison sentences, rather than on usually futile efforts at rehabilitation.

    The high cost of incarceration can be reduced by the thorough exploitation of prison labor, enforced by the frequent use of corporeal punishment.

      What is the average age people are incarcerated for lengthy sentences and/or put to death? If the age is above 25, I fail to see how this is a long term eugenic solution to crime. Isn’t execution/prison too little, too late because most of these men have procreated?

      • JohnEngelman

        Capital punishment and long prison sentences help. It would also be a good idea to replace Aid to Families with Dependent Children with free abortion on demand.

        It is frequently the case that violent criminals have been in and out of reform school and prison since they entered puberty. By not letting them out the criminal justice system can keep them from committing more crimes. It can also keep them from having illegitimate sons who will continue in their fathers’ footsteps.

    I think i might have been the first to compare chicago’s 500 murders in a year to kandahar afghanistan a few weeks ago…I’m still waiting to hear how slavery is somehow the cause of all this urban gun violence.
