  • The False Narrative Of White Supremacists Doing Mass Public Shootings: Racial, Gender, Religious And Political Views Of These Killers From 1998 Through January 2021

    Entertainment television continually provides a false impression of those who commit mass public shootings and how they commit them. Show after show has mass public shootings involving machine guns, though that never happens. But another myth is that attacks are frequently by white supremacists. In his first Townhall as president, Biden claimed: “And now a rise of political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat.” CBS entertainment television constantly portrays white supremacists as the most pressing danger facing the country, committing almost all the mass public shootings. Yet, that is far from the case....

    The number of homicides and shootings in Chicago spiked dramatically in 2020, ending with more bloodshed than in all but one year in more than two decades, statistics released by police on Friday revealed. After three years of falling homicide totals, 2020 ended with 769 homicides — 274 more than the previous year and the most since the 784 homicides in 2016. The latest shooting victim figures told the same story, with the year ending with 4,033 shooting victims compared with 2,598 the year before. And it never let up, as is illustrated by the fact that in December, there...

    James Hunter pulled the trigger. But he had help. The pandering politicians, the woke eastsiders, the fawning reporters on the 6 o’clock news, the people who shouted into the bullhorns, the academics who consecrated a movement, the profane haters outside the Public Safety Building, the corporate titans and their leftist revolution, the people who spraypainted hashtags across a city, the pro-criminal policies of a morally bankrupt state, the blind leaders of the blind in pulpits and press conferences, the millionaire athletes in various leagues. They all helped pull the trigger.

    Eleven people were shot, three of them fatally, Monday in Chicago, including a man who was killed in a shooting during a robbery in Bridgeport on the South Side. In the day’s first reported shooting, a 33-year-old man was wounded in Austin on the West Side. The man was sitting in a parked car about 1:20 a.m. in the 1000 block of North Mason Avenue when shots were fired, police said. He was transported to Stroger Hospital in fair condition. Thirty-eight people were shot, six of them killed, last weekend citywide.

    Sixty to 70 Black Lives Matter activists 'targeted' the black officer, vandalized his girlfriend’s home, and fired a shotgun at his back door in August. Riots erupted this week when he was not charged. Black Lives Matter protesters took to the streets of Milwaukee and Wauwatosa Wednesday night, with some of the “peaceful” demonstrators smashing windows of homes and businesses and clashing with law enforcement and the National Guard.“What started as a protest has become a large disturbance of public order that has caused property damage and is threatening to cause injury to persons,” the Wauwatosa Police Department tweeted just...

    Democratic presidential nominee former Vice-President Joe Biden rebuffed charges that his proposed policies are "socialist" by pointing out that "I beat the socialist in the primary. After my South Carolina primary win drove all the other candidates from the race it was one-on-one between me and Bernie. I whipped him good." "You know, never once have I read the term socialist or socialism off the teleprompter I use to make my campaign speeches and answer interview questions," the Candidate recalled. "I think the absence of those words pretty definitively proves I'm not a socialist. As for the allegation that I...

    United States Postal workers who deliver mail in some of Chicago’s more violent neighborhoods are threatening to halt their services after a mail carrier was shot in the city’s South Side earlier this month. The carrier, a 24-year-old woman, was left critically and injured after being shot multiple times at 91st Street and Ellis Avenue while delivering mail on September 10. Police said the worker did not appear to be the target and had been caught in the crossfire during a drive-by. Chicago’s WSL-TV reported that she was the second mail carrier wounded by gunfire on that route. Another mail...

Breitbart News reported 30 people were shot Friday evening into Sunday morning alone in Chicago, and two of those victims succumbed to their wounds.

The incident began just before 12:30 a.m. on Saturday when officers were called to a shooting near Goodman Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, where a large crowd had gathered outside.

    If the nation’s police officers walked off the job today, it would be hard to blame them. Sunday’s anti-cop riots in Lancaster, Pa., have made the current de facto rules of engagement clear: Officers may never defend themselves against lethal force if their attacker is a minority. They should simply accept being shot or stabbed as penance for their alleged racism.

    Even as gun violence breaks records in New York City, Chicago, and Philly, the Democrats don’t have much to say about the epidemic of shootings or their pet cause, gun control. While activist Democrat prosecutors like Attorney General Letitia James have neglected to deal with the violence and are instead targeting the NRA, they aren’t really talking about gun control. Mass shootings are rarely mentioned anymore even though there are more of them than ever. A Washington D.C. mass shooting at a cookout last month that wounded 20 people was treated as another local crime story. And there are a...

    As violence fluctuated this summer in Baltimore, the recent week in September left at least 45 people shot throughout the city — 12 of them dead since last Sunday, according to Baltimore police data. Baltimore police confirmed on Sunday that from Sept. 6 to Sept. 13, 33 people were injured in shootings and 12 others were killed. But the week had already started off rough, coming off of a violent Labor Day weekend after 12 people had been shot, two others being killed and one person who was fatally stabbed. The latest shooting occurred overnight, around 12:24 a.m. in 700...

    We recently discussed the sickening news that New York City had already passed 1,000 shootings in 2020, a number that’s in excess of the total number of shootings for all of 2019 and there are still four months to go. But as with any municipal government and law enforcement agency, the raw number of incidents doesn’t tell the whole story. How effective are officials being in solving these cases and putting the guilty behind bars? According to a new report from the New York Post, things aren’t looking all that hot on the enforcement front, either. The NYPD’s clearance...

    At least 16 people were shot, two fatally, Friday through Saturday afternoon in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.
