CHICAGO: As BLACK violence & crime surges, more non-black neighborhoods are caught in its grip including Chicago's Downtown, Loop & Gold Coast

First came the nightclub shootings, which were terrifying but could be explained away as a mix of late hours and alcohol. Then came the brazen gang shooting in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in January, which signaled something different was happening.

But the last straw for many in the South Loop was the murder of one of their neighbors in August while he walked outside for a morning cup of coffee. That's when things boiled over and spurred residents to take action.

As the numbers of shootings and killings skyrocket in Chicago, most of the violence has been driven by traditional gang conflicts on the South and West sides.

But over the past two years, violence in developing and more affluent areas close to the Loop has also spiked, giving more well-heeled Chicagoans a taste of the danger and fear that people in the city's poor neighborhoods have experienced for decades.

And it threatens to undermine the many hard-won gains in those areas that officials have pushed for in recent years. If not checked, experts warn, it can put the overall health of the city at risk.

"If I am a public official in a great city, and dealing with issues of gentrification and issues of economic vitality, public safety is an essential background condition," said Harold Pollack, a University of Chicago professor who studies crime and its effects on society.

It's not just the South Loop that has had an increase in violence near downtown.

Communist agitation propaganda. They're telling their troops that it's ok to attack white people, because they must have voted for Trump. This is a war against the communists and their flunkies, the black savages. Make no mistake, this is war. You need more ammo.

Carry your gun and OC. Carrier them everywhere. Stay aware at all times. Carrier extra magazine. Have a CCL and insurance from NRA or First Defense. Teach your wife how to use a firearm. The most important thing is to practice as much as possible.

The PC false narrative keeps chugging along. People are murdered by black criminals, cities are destroyed by blacks, corrupt black politicians continue to bribe and steal and act as if they are above the law, race hustlers continue to shake down corporations and banks, the white man continues to lie on his back and allow everyone else to kick him around, liberal asshats wage violent riots against democracy and positive change, and the lying liberal bullshit machine just keeps oozing its pus across the face of our nation...

Take your little brother's hands and force him to repeatedly smack himself in the face with them. As you're doing it say, "Why do you keep hitting yourself?! Hey! Stop hitting yourself, you maniac!"

Ah god I fucken love it. It's still fun when you're 36.
