At least the "good guys" in Afghanistan have firearms....
By the way, where are Al and Jesse on this?? <crickets chirping>
And anyone is surprised by this from Naziland????
Most of the murders are contributed to gang and drug related violence where the thugs are killing themselves. It's the typical Boyz-in-the-Hood scenario where gang memebrs are drive-bys, walk-bys and ambushes on rival gang members. Unfortunately, there are some innocent civilians who get caught in the crossfire. Too bad the report don't drill down the numbers surrounding the victims (thugs vs good standing citizens); method of murders (such as gun violence and vehicular homicide) and contributing factor (such as gang related, burglaries, and domestic matters).
The crime report also show that Chicago's overall crime is down 10% from a year ago. Even with the spike in murders!!!!! My thoughts are the thugs are shooting and killing one another at a more efficient rate.
OK by me. Let 'em have at it.
Knew I felt safe here for some reason.
isn't it illegal to carry a firearm in IL? All these murders must be caused by knives, fists, or cars.
Sounds like the last 2,000 years of Afghanistan history.
The title is misleading.They're only counting Americans killed in Afghanistan and counting all people killed in Chicago.
Not a fair comparison.
We need to know how many total homicides there were in Afghanistan for it to be fair.
See, it don't seem so bad when you have apple to apples comparison. Even the US service killed are that "soliders" in a war.
I would be really surprise if a country of almost 32million has less deaths from crime or murdering than all of cook county.
I would also bet if you want to look at just allied forces deaths, that more solider have died this year than all of chicago murder rates and over the course of 10+ years, more solider have died in Afghanistan than chicago murders in the same last 10 years.
But hey this is GT , always stirring the pot
It's past time that we pulled out. Chicago isn't worth another American life.
Personally, I think this article is disrespectful to all of the alliance soldiers who died fighting overseas.
How many of the people killed in Chicago WEREN'T Americans?
We had over 40 shootings over? Memorial Day weekend alone :-(
Sent from my LTEvo, please pardon typos.
The point is that there are over three million people in Chicago and not nearly that many U.S. servicemen in Afghanistan.
So the homicide rate for U.S. service men in Afghanistan in obviously higher than the average Chicago resident.
Good thing Illinois doesn't have concealed carry. If its that bad without it imagine the murders with it!
Many argue that conceal carry reduce crime..... Therefore, we should expect the murder rate to decline.
My eye rolling smiley was supposed to reflect my sarcasm in that statement.
Seriously, Does anyone care about what goes on in Chicago?
There is no war in Chicago and parts of it is a lawless cesspool.
Afghanistan is lost.
