If there was ever a case of reaping what you sow, the Obama administration’s War Against The Police in Ferguson, New York City, and Baltimore has produced the inevitable Obama crime wave:
“After years of declining violent crime, several major American cities experienced a dramatic surge in homicides during the first half of this year.
Milwaukee, which last year had one of its lowest annual homicide totals in city history, recorded 84 murders so far this year, more than double the 41 it tallied at the same point last year. …
The number of murders in 2015 jumped by 33% or more in Baltimore, New Orleans and St. Louis. Meanwhile, in Chicago, the nation’s third-largest city, the homicide toll climbed 19% and the number of shooting incidents increased by 21% during the first half of the year.
In all the cities, the increased violence is disproportionately impacting poor and predominantly African-American and Latino neighborhoods. In parts of Milwaukee, the sound of gunfire is so commonplace that about 80% of gunshots detected by ShotSpotter sensors aren’t even called into police by residents, Flynn said. …”
In a supreme act of irony, activists affiliated with the #BlackLivesMatter movement are vandalizing Confederate monuments all across the South, while demonizing the police and demanding that the most violent criminals in America be released en masse from their prison cells so that they can return to terrorize their neighborhoods.
Americans have such short memories:
“Kweisi Mfume, a former representative whose congressional district included Baltimore and who was the chair of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) in the 103rd Congress, is trying to disown his and the CBC’s role in pushing through the 1994 crime bill. The 1994 bill was the largest crime bill in U.S. history—it added 100,000 new police officers around the country and committed nearly $10 billion to build new prisons. The bill also included an assault weapons ban, to entice Democrats to vote, and a “midnight basketball” provision that turned off some Republicans who might otherwise be all over a law and order bill like that. The bill passed 235-195, with most Democrats voting in favor and most Republicans voting against. President Clinton happily signed the bill into law.
Now, some supporters of that bill, instead of acknowledging that they’re evolving on the issue of being blindly pro-police, are trying to rewrite the history of how that bill passed a Democrat-controlled Congress and was signed into law by a Democratic president. …”
The previous black crime wave which ravaged America’s biggest cities was brought to an end in the early 1990s when Bill Clinton, the Democratic Party, and the Congressional Black Caucus spearheaded the largest crime bill in American history. Now, the #BlackLivesMatter movement wants to reverse the policies which saved thousands of black lives, and which made it possible for SJWs to gentrify inner cities.
I have been trying to follow US crime through statistics reports from mostly the FBI. They state quite happily that crime has been in decline since 1950. I can imagine therefor, that an incline will essentially be avoided using statistics techniques such as “standardization” or changing crime codes. This was done in South Africa to ameliorate rising crime, so it may well happen to Americans too.
In addition I have discovered that crime in the US compares in a predictive sense well to South Africa based on both countries having relatively the same black populations.
Sure Obama loves this. Just another excuse to confiscate guns.
I swear, son, I swear! Taking down the monuments now, eh? Let’s rewrite history?
Okay, two can play at that game: I hereby refer to the Charleston church thing as The American Reichstag Event.
The flag comes down and crime goes up. It’s very simple. all this whole thing is about is still gun confiscation. The idiots in South Carolina think they are making a deal -letting the flag come down in exchange for life back to usual and the media leaving Charleston- a symbol of reconciliation but it won’t work like that for a mad hare president who comes down to Charleston and sings amazing grace from a pulpit in order to rally his troops to war over southern white privilege. This is really all about guns. They will start in acting gun legislation over the shooter Dustin next week. Get ready folks this is the big one. The black crime mafia families of the north were promised inside our homes when Obama won and they still want to collect on this promise. Someone needs to get groups of folks in both north and south Carolina with cameras filming black on white and black crime in general. It is going to surge especially in Charleston. When blacks kill whites all over south Carolina who will be able to say anything? we have to document this stuff folks. we need to get organized.
Wonder how long before the Blacks start begging the Whites to do something about all the crime? If we barricaded them in it wouldn’t be long before they were cooking each other up in big pots.
