CHICAGO—Highlighting increasingly dangerous conditions within the city, a new study published Monday by Northwestern University’s Department of Environmental Studies revealed that approximately 75 percent of the air in Chicago is now composed of bullets. “Far exceeding the levels of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and even oxygen, bullets now constitute three-fourths of Chicago’s air supply,” said atmospheric scientist and study coauthor John Molina, stressing that the dense and widespread deposits of jacketed lead and copper in the air pose severe and potentially fatal health risks to all Chicago residents. “According to our measurements, the proportion of bullets in Chicago’s overall air composition is significantly higher than that of other cities with comparable sizes and population densities. Frankly, if this trend continues—and there is unfortunately little evidence suggesting otherwise—living safely within the confines of Chicago will be almost impossible.” Molina went on to suggest that Chicago’s 2.7 million residents stay indoors whenever possible in order to minimize their exposure.

“On State Street, that great street, I just want to say
They do things they don’t do on Broadway”
For the third consecutive weekend, the wheels came off and all hell broke loose, especially on Friday night and into Saturday morning.
In all, eight (8) were killed and another 39 were shot and wounded which slightly beats last weekend’s shitshow tally of nine (9) killed and 37 wounded.
“A breakdown of the 47 incidents shows:
5 were shot & killed, 2 stabbed, 1 auto-related
6 in critical or serious condition
26.3 y/o average age
8 multi-victim incidents
4 shot in the ass
“Not only have the past few weekends been disasters,
April’s 33 homicides far exceeds last April’s 24. Outside of a brutally frigid January, February, March and April have all handily bested their 2013 counterparts. In other words, #CrimeIsDown. Unless something changes and changes real soon, (and what, we have no idea) this summer is going to be a gigantic clusterfuck.
This week’s Honor Student of the Week hails from suburban Flossmoor where he enjoys gangbanging, Facebooking with rivals gangs and soon, long stints in prison. Please meet, Justin C. Hamilton: “Justin C. Hamilton, of Flossmoor, is facing two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of 16-year-old Jordan Means and 18-year-old Anthony Bankhead. During a Tuesday bond hearing, prosecutors said Hamilton is a member of the Latin Kings street gang and had been fighting with the victims on Facebook prior to the shooting. After the shooting, family of the teens said the Facebook fight was over a stolen power cord and that both Means and Bankhead knew their killer.” A double homicide over a $10 power cord? Yep, but remember, “The gun violence in this city is the result of lax guns laws. Period.”

What was the old saw about guns and outlaws? It would appear that the corrupt, dimwitted Democrats running Chicago never heard it and can’t learn it.
At least nine people have been killed and 26 others wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday… Of the 35 people shot, 10 of them were shot on Easter Sunday.
The weekend’s latest shooting took place around 1 p.m. Sunday in the 2800 block of South Sawyer Avenue, killed two people.
A 33-year-old man was fatally shot in the head and a 19-year-old man was shot in the chest.
The 19-year-old man was taken in critical condition to an area hospital, but police said he later died of his injuries… Police said the two were traveling in a vehicle when an orange hummer [sic] drove alongside and fired shots.
…Just after 5 a.m. Sunday two people were found shot to death in a Garfield Ridge home, police said.
The two were found unresponsive just after 5 a.m. Sunday inside a home in the the 5300 block of South Austin Avenue, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada.
I wonder how many of the 9 dead will be recategorized as “noncriminal death investigations” as part of Rahm Emanual and Gerry McCarthy’s ongoing scam?
Obama is finished. That is why he is so dangerous.
How inconvenient for the liberal control freak douchebags.
If they are too dimwitted to understand the meaning of negative correlation, I’ll explain it for them. The more legally owned guns there are in a community, the LESS violent crime. Meanwhile, in the liberal shithole paradises of Chicago, Philly, Camden, New Orleans, Baltimore…… the strict gun laws have done their job.
… and finds…
Indeed, “data on fire‐arms ownership by constabulary area in England,” like data from the United States, show “a negative correlation,”10 that is, “where firearms are most dense violent crime rates are lowest, and where guns are least dense violent crime rates are highest.”11 Many different data sets from various kinds of sources are summarized as follows by the leading text:
[T]here is no consistent significant positive association between gun ownership levels and violence rates: across (1) time within the United States, (2) U.S. cities, (3) counties within Illinois, (4) country‐sized areas like England, U.S. states, (5) regions of the United States, (6) nations, or (7) population subgroups . . . .12
It’s not a very difficult read and, IMHO, well worth your time.
If you care about objectivity, that is.
Now let’s add in another ugly little fact — we’re now talking about Obama intending to initiate violence against a nation which may, if undertaken, in fact be aiding terrorist-affiliated rebels.
It’s time to ask these would-be-Mussolinis an uncomfortable question:
Since we have the facts cited in the above paper — that there is a negative correlation between civilian firearms ownership and crime — exactly what is the real reason these very same politicians want to restrict civilian firearms ownership?
Not only does Chicago hold the murder capital title for 2012, but they have achieved an even higher honor – bed bug capital of the U.S. They edged out Jimski’s Cincinnati by a bug’s leg. Maybe next year. Rahm must be so proud. Maybe they should ban beds. Philly fell off the list because the beds in West Philly are so disgusting, even the bed bugs won’t go near them.
America’s Top Bedbug Cities Named
by Brian Rademaekers | January 16, 2013 at 2:04 PM
Chicago has beat out Cincinnati for a dubious, itchy distinction – top U.S. city for bedbugs.
That’s according to a new list released by the pest control company Orkin, which looked at bedbug service calls made across the country in 2012 to rank the top 50 cities.
And while the Windy City jumped from the number two spot in 2011 to number one in 2012, Orkin says the bedbug-killing business is up nearly 33 percent nationally for their parent company, Rollins. In all, Rollins runs eight U.S. pest control companies, including Orkin.
Also hard hit was the Seattle-Tacoma metro area, which jumped 14 spots to land at number 13 overall among the country’s top bedbug hotspots.
Orkin says Indianapolis, Omaha, Milwaukee, Hartford-New Haven, Knoxville, Charleston-Huntington, Cedar Rapids-Waterloo and Minneapolis also saw notable spikes over the last year.
The list wasn’t all bad news: Atlanta, Honolulu, Charlotte and Las Vegas all dropped significantly, Orkin’s numbers show.
Some cities – including Philadelphia and Salt Lake City – were on the 2011 list, but improved enough in 2012 to be dropped from the top 50.
“This list shows that bedbugs continue to be a problem throughout the U.S.,” Orkin says in a statement accompanying the list.
Orkin says adult bedbugs resemble apple seeds in size and color; newly-hatched babies are as small as a pinhead and pale in color.
Here’s a look at the complete top 50 list:
The following cities are ranked in order of the number of bedbug treatments Orkin performed from January to December 2012 along with their shift, if any, in ranking compared to January to December 2011.

How come when you read the mainstream media versions of these vicious crimes, they never mention that all of the perpetrators are black? They refer to them as rowdy youths. LMFAO. They are nothing but the result of decades of Democratic welfare policies. The black community is responsible for creating these animals and Democratic politicians have encouraged and subsidized these murdering thugs. I thought Philly was bad. Frank is rolling over in his grave.
Chicago needs Wyatt Earp
The last few days have seen an astonishing explosion of violence in the city of Chicago.
Two nights ago, 4 were killed and 15 wounded in a spree where 13 of those victims were shot in just 1/2 an hour.
Last night, one was killed and 16 wounded in another spasm of violence. So far this August, there have been 50 homicides in the city, 15 more than occurred in August, 2011.
This website gives the gory details. Hundreds have been wounded in addition to the record number of homicides.
Meanwhile, police arrested 20 “juveniles” for “rowdy” behavior along the Magnificent Mile. Kids were pushing pedestrians, darting in and out of traffic as police pursued the gang up and down Michigan avenue.
The city is being rocked by lawlessness. Simply put, the streets are unsafe anywhere. There have been a lot of theories about why the sudden outbreak of violence is occurring. Blame is being assigned to Mayor Emanuel or the economic situation that has meant far fewer jobs for young men.
It hardly matters. The question is, what should be done about it?
If Chicago is going to act like a wild west town, they need a wild west solution; Wyatt Earp. Or at least someone with his hard headed, single mindedness (if not his tactics in keeping the peace which could be quite brutal).
Earp and his brother enforced the law. It really is that simple sometimes. New York liberals went ballistic when Mayor Rudy Guiliani began to arrest graffiti “artists,” turnstile jumpers, vandals, and other petty criminals, enforcing laws that had rarely been enforced under previous mayors. It appeared to work. The message that the law would be enforced — along with federal prison guidelines that took violent criminals off the streets for longer periods of time — drove New York’s crime rate down significantly.
Might something like that work in Chicago? Rahmbo better try something quickly. Chicago is turning into a shooting gallery and citizens are living in fear that the next outbreak of violence may target them or their loved ones.
