From the NYT:

Violence Surges in Chicago Even as Policing Debate Rages On
By MONICA DAVEY MARCH 28, 2016

The word “even” in that headline is pretty funny. “Predictably” would be more logical than “even.”

… Chicago has long been troubled by violence, but murders and shootings have risen sharply this year. Violent crime remains below the levels of two decades ago, and criminologists caution against finding trends in only a few months of data. But City Hall, the police and community leaders are alarmed by the surge: As of Friday, 131 people had been murdered here in the first months of 2016, an 84 percent rise in homicides from the same period in 2015. There had been 605 shootings, nearly twice as many than this point last year.

The increase could hardly have come at a more difficult time. The city is at a pivotal moment for law enforcement, mired in a crisis over police conduct and discipline and over distrust of officers, particularly by African-American residents, who make up about one-third of Chicago’s population.

You know, this outburst of black on black killings isn’t some random fluke like the weather, it’s a direct result of last fall’s BlackLivesMatter agitation in Chicago and Obama Administration anti-police interventions, just like the pattern in St. Louis and Baltimore.

I’m sure we’ll soon see more learned articles about how there is no Ferguson Effect because, while homicides were up almost 17% overall in the fifty biggest cities from 2014 to 2015, crime wasn’t up in El Paso. So that proves there’s no general Ferguson Effect. Instead, the only thing that’s up significantly is black-on-black homicides in heavily black cities where there has been Soros-funded anti-law & order agitations. Science!

Doing a text search, I find no hits for “Ferguson” or “Black Lives Matter” or “Soros” in this article, but “Justice Department” does come up:

The Justice Department is scrutinizing the patterns and practices of the city’s police force; the mayor on Monday named an interim police superintendent to replace the department’s fired leader; and voters have rejected Cook County’s top prosecutor, defeating her in a primary on March 15. The release in November of a police video that showed a white officer shooting a black teenager, Laquan McDonald, 16 times caused longstanding anger about police conduct to boil over. …

Since January, officers have recorded 20,908 times that they stopped, patted down and questioned people for suspicious behavior, compared with 157,346 in the same period last year. Gun seizures are also down: 1,316 guns have been taken off the streets this year compared with 1,413 at this time last year.

In an unusual video address meant to reassure Chicago officers, John J. Escalante, who has been the interim superintendent, told the police, “We are aware that there’s a concern among the rank and file about not wanting to be the next YouTube video that goes viral.”

Dean Angelo, Sr., the president of the local police union, said public scrutiny had an effect on officers. “They’re being videotaped at every traffic stop,” he said.

But the drop in street stops by the police could be tied to a departmental change that took effect in January, requiring officers to fill out a far more detailed form for each one. The change was imposed after the American Civil Liberties Union raised questions about whether officers were targeting minorities in their stops. The department recently simplified the required paperwork, and the number of stops has since been on the rise, officials say.

Speaking of halcyon Oak Park v. homicidal Austin right across Austin Blvd.:

“I’m really tired of it, and tired of worrying,” said Gloria Johnson, 37, who serves food at a restaurant in Austin, a neighborhood where the authorities say violence has been particularly harsh. Like other parts of the West Side, Austin has long wrestled with economic distress, gangs and crime, and Ms. Johnson bears a long scar on her elbow from a bullet fired about a decade ago. “But it seems like this year is just the worst of the worst,” she said.

In summary: #BlackLiesSlaughter

    People who live in violent places tend to become paranoid. People who are paranoid tend to blame their chosen victim group for the violence, namely their ‘oppressors.’ They do this because it’s too much of a psychological stressor to blame their own criminal relatives for the rise in crime.

    Therefore, you’ll see a direct correlation between anti-racist hysteria and violent crime. “If the police didn’t oppress us so much, we’d be safe,” is their paranoid way of thinking.

    That's brilliant. That's exactly what is going on - the open-borders-humanitarians think that by adding the second pendulum, the first pendulum can still control the same movement but with a longer pendulum. The chaos that is happening now, they, the obh, believe will be a temporary adjustment. The question is, can the ob-humanitarians create a rigid tie between the two pendulums when the ob-capitalists don't actually want that; probably not.

    I think doing that may illegal under US law. Dominos faced legal issues because of not delivering to high crime neighbourhoods. They used a green light, yellow light and red light system, for driver safety, where for safe areas they delivered to the door, to risky areas they made deliveries to the curb and to really dangerous areas they didn't deliver. Naturally due to disparate impact they got critisised for pizza redlining and eventually sued by the US justice department and settled. So now Dominos has to deliver to all areas or follow a onerous procedure if they don't want to deliver.

    Actually, at least part of it has been the weather. Black homicide rates are partly correlated to weather, and Chicago has been having an extremely mild winter.

    Heating degree days the last 3 complete months this year: 2855. Prior two years: 3459 and 3996. That is almost 7 degrees warmer on the average day compared to last year.

  15. Law & Order has several times dramatically driven home one aspect of the Ferguson Effect.

    They regularly show officers responding to a call or making an arrest, and a large, jeering, crowd forming around them, with 15+ camera phones rolling in their faces. Is there any person who would not be less effective at their job with that going on?

  17. “The change was imposed after the American Civil Liberties Union raised questions about whether officers were targeting minorities in their stops.”

    Officers should be targeting minorities in their stops, since the majority of criminal offenses are perpetrated by minorities who should be stopped before they commit more atrocities, and they are atrocities, not petty crimes. Chicago is a vile, corruption-infested city with little hope of redemption. It is painful to watch the city implode, knowing full well that the officials in charge, in their progressive policies, are simply hastening the day of total chaos and destruction. They will not, cannot, do what is necessary to turn the tide.

    So what’s the problem? The black community has spoken loud and clear that they prefer a hands off approach from law enforcement and so this is what they’ve gotten. The people have spoken. The extra casualties are just part of the price of doing business and the community is ok with that. The media reporting focuses on the homicide upsurge from the point of view of the victims and their families and dwells upon how terrible it is. However, the shooters aren’t aliens helicoptered in but are related to other members of the black community. A black is just as likely to be connected to a perp as well as to a victim and they wouldn’t want to see junior go to prison, hence the code of silence. A lot of people in the community are living off the proceeds of drug dealing or other criminal rackets.

    K C Chia, a project sub-contractor, is worried about public safety and hopes that the government will rethink the strategy of bringing in more foreign workers. “If they come here and there is no work, they will resort to vices, robbery, break-ins.”

    Meanwhile, rights groups have warned of xenophobic attacks that may trigger violence in the community as the population of foreign workers increase.

  35. Chicago Teenager in Video Against Gun Violence Is Shot and Wounded

    A 13-year-old Chicago boy who appeared in an award-winning public service video about the effect of gun violence on the city’s black youth was shot in the back and critically wounded, officials said Monday.

    The boy, Zarriel Trotter, was struck by a stray bullet after two groups of youths began a “heated argument” Friday night on the city’s West Side and one person pulled out a handgun and started firing, Officer Jose Estrada said.

    There have been 46 shootings from Jan. 1 through March 26 in the district where Zarriel was wounded, compared with 19 in the same period last year and 18 in the same period in 2014, Officer Estrada said.

    “There has been a substantial increase,” he said in a telephone interview, adding that the reason for the increase was not immediately clear. “Unfortunately, when you see crime, there are so many factors. It would be impossible to narrow it down.”

    I'm seeing a pattern with some of our black inner cities and the Middle East. Without a strongman to oppress people, the ME seems to rise up in civil war and tribal strife to kill each other. In places like Chicago, without an oppressive police force to stop and frisk anyone looking suspicious, the gangs will maraud and rampage and kill each other.

    There has a to be a happy medium between oppression and anarchy for these people. Am I dreaming?

    Er, it wasn't Soros who went to the polls and ousted Anita Alvarez and replaced her with Kim Foxx explicitly because of BLM. There are actually a few things Soros just can't do.

    Agency?

    (After genetics) the media are the biggest factor – ignoring / highlighting whatever best suits the narrative they want to promote.

    Soros gave them material to work with but the media multiplied it 100-fold.

  39. Crime is up in many cities but one cause in Chicago that you don’t hear much about and may be contributing to the sharp rise in violence is the fact that most of the high rise housing projects in Chicago were torn down over the past decade and half or so. The gangs that controlled the drug trade and other concerns in the projects had to go somewhere. They were spread out randomly through the neighborhoods of Chicago, and even into Downstate Illinois cities, and now the gangs are trying to sort it all out. The gangs lost the lucrative projects but now are trying to reform new turfs in the neighborhoods that they were sent out into. Much of the violence seen lately is just the gangs enforcing their authority over new territory.

    OT: Interbreeding with Neanderthals/Denisovans is in the news again-- can we tell from the genetics whether it was Neanderthal/Denisovan men or women who interbred more? Did Sapiens men have a craving for their (short hairy?) women, or did Sapiens women sneak off to sample a taste of cave-strange...?

    In monkeys some females swap troupes when they reach breeding age. I’d expect it was similar for hominids in this era so maybe less a case of differential breeding rate and more a case of differential survival rate imo.

    OT, funny things happen in relatively affluent Malaysia:

    http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asiapacific/malaysia-signs-deal-with/2527328.html

    Malaysia signs deal with Bangladesh to hire 1.5 million workers

    Under the deal, levy for Bangladeshi workers is to be fixed at RM1,946 (US$467), although industry sources say the actual cost is a lot higher after factoring agent fees and expenses of bringing workers into Malaysia.

    ...

    "Jobs are a lot fewer now and employers are also paying less," said 31-year-old Abu Bashar who has just gotten married. "I don’t know why the government still wants to bring more workers in from Bangladesh, there aren't enough jobs at it is in Malaysia."

    K C Chia, a project sub-contractor, is worried about public safety and hopes that the government will rethink the strategy of bringing in more foreign workers. "If they come here and there is no work, they will resort to vices, robbery, break-ins."

    Meanwhile, rights groups have warned of xenophobic attacks that may trigger violence in the community as the population of foreign workers increase.


    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/29/opinion/malaysias-immigrant-worker-debate.html

    Malaysia’s Immigrant Worker Debate

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaysia#Religion

    Approximately 61.3% of the population practice Islam, 19.8% practice Buddhism, 9.2% Christianity, 6.3% Hinduism and 1.3% practice Confucianism, Taoism and other traditional Chinese religions.

    seems like mass immigration as demographic warfare is catching on

    Chicago Teenager in Video Against Gun Violence Is Shot and Wounded

    A 13-year-old Chicago boy who appeared in an award-winning public service video about the effect of gun violence on the city’s black youth was shot in the back and critically wounded, officials said Monday.

    The boy, Zarriel Trotter, was struck by a stray bullet after two groups of youths began a “heated argument” Friday night on the city’s West Side and one person pulled out a handgun and started firing, Officer Jose Estrada said.
     

    There have been 46 shootings from Jan. 1 through March 26 in the district where Zarriel was wounded, compared with 19 in the same period last year and 18 in the same period in 2014, Officer Estrada said.

    “There has been a substantial increase,” he said in a telephone interview, adding that the reason for the increase was not immediately clear. “Unfortunately, when you see crime, there are so many factors. It would be impossible to narrow it down.”
     

    I like how the shoot out between rival gangs became a heated dispute between groups of youths.

    How do you think we should address actual police abuse–like the cops beating people up for mouthiness, and then lying about what happened on the police report? Chicago and New York both have reputations for having a lot of corrupt and brutal policemen on the force.

    You blame higher murder rates on protests and justice department investigations, and maybe you’re right (or maybe not–time will tell). But what should we do in these cases? Letting the cops go on beating people up and getting away with it seems like a lousy answer.

    Some people are in need of beating up. You can't police a 3rd world population with 1st world rules. It just doesn't work in real life They are finding this out the hard way in Belgium.

    Your "time will tell" shtick is laughable. It's perfectly clear that the spike in murder rates is directly tied to the vilification and crippling of police forces in the wake of BLM.

    It's simply not possible to both keep crime under control in black areas AND have a police force that is restrained and polite (despite the fact that they spend their days dealing with animals). You have to pick one.

    Dem voters must be idiots.
    To keep supporting the rantings of their ignorant, or misguided, leadership.
    Handcuff police, and black murders soar.
    Open borders and welcome immigrants, equals increased crime and terrorism.

    How and why do they keep ignoring these FACTS ?

    As previously mentioned a Dem voter (he calls himself a Party Man) I know rants “I hate white guys.”

    And this fellow is an Old White Guy living in an affluent nearly all white neighborhood.

    I think doing that may illegal under US law. Dominos faced legal issues because of not delivering to high crime neighbourhoods. They used a green light, yellow light and red light system, for driver safety, where for safe areas they delivered to the door, to risky areas they made deliveries to the curb and to really dangerous areas they didn't deliver. Naturally due to disparate impact they got critisised for pizza redlining and eventually sued by the US justice department and settled. So now Dominos has to deliver to all areas or follow a onerous procedure if they don't want to deliver.

    Article critical towards Dominos:
    http://articles.baltimoresun.com/1995-12-13/news/1995347105_1_black-neighborhoods-delivery-people-pizza-delivery

    Forum posts on Dominos agreement with the justice department (the originals have expired but can be accessed through web archives):
    http://gregspages.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=823

    A news article on a driver Corey Lind who probably died because of these policies:
    http://www.masslive.com/news/index.ssf/2009/06/parents_of_murdered_delivery_m.html

    I think his parents lost the lawsuit

    One of the most unintentionally hillarious paragraphs in the article about Dominos (link number one):

    Everybody eats pizza. I never dreamed I couldn’t just pick up the phone and order it,” said Devera Pounds, a Parole resident. She lives near a basketball court where pizza delivery people have been harassed.

    I used Google maps, and yes. There REALLY is a “Parole” street in Annapolis, MD.

    Plus, she's a would-be consumer of cheap pizza, who's surname is "Pounds." And the criminality in her neighborhood is literally emanating from a basketball court. It sounds like something George Lincoln Rockwell would've come up with, in order to get a big laugh at a Nazi Party meeting, or some sort of Klan gathering. But no. Its real life.

    The concept seems to be mostly about ethnicity. You need to be either "Muslim Malay" or "indigenous native." If you're a foreign Muslim and marry a Malay you're fine, it seems, certainly the children.

  50. A little off topic, but in Detroit 19 DPS Principals have been indicted in a bribery-kick back scheme involving fake invoices from a school supply vendor. The charges claim that the kick backs ranged from $4000 to almost $400,000. The indicted principals are all on unpaid leave and all are diverse. Get a good job and F–k it up. The former Superintendent of Detroit Public Schools, Barbara Byrd Bennett was indicted and pleaded guilty to federal charges in Chicago, where she was CPS Superintendent. She left Cleveland for Chicago and now Cleveland in finding a similar trail of financial misdeeds. The Talented Tenth taking a little more than they should. Oh, and one Principal in Detroit, who has taken a plead deal, called attention to her self by driving a Maserati, I guess Escalades are passe.

  51. Correcting my post. Yesterday the Detroit Free Press said 19 Principals were indicted. Today, the number, depending on the source, is either 12 or 13 plus a school administrator and the vendor.
