Winter of NBC News goes on:

Chief of Crime Control Strategies Michael Lipetri told reporters today, “all murder victims in June were of the minority community.”

The city’s spike in crime is now a bonafide trend, homicides are up 27% year to date and are running 11.3% higher than they were 5 years ago.

There’s been a 204% increase in shooting victims over the past 28 days compared to last year with 717 shooting victims on the year.

50% of the shootings have taken place in just 10 precincts, “those communities are being overrun by a small percentage of gang members who have little regard for their own life and no regard for their community”, Chief Lipetri says.

The bloodshed isn’t limited to New York City.

Chicago’s recent crime fighting success has cratered with a homicide rate that has risen 34% this year compared to last, for a total of 324 deaths. Over the last 28 days compared to last year over the same period homicides rose 83%.

Philadelphia’s homicide rate has risen up 27% with 210 killings in total (more than NYC), a rate not seen in over 10 years.

Criminology professor Peter Moskos tweets:

You’ll see a lot of this in the coming years:
“1) crime isn’t going up
“2) crime is lower than it was in 1990
“3) it’s complicated
“4) who can say why?
“5) society is to blame
“6) well, we don’t want to go back to the kind of policing that kept crime lower because policing is bad”

And then, I would add, 7):

  7. theMann says:

    All criminals are career criminals!

    A normal person doesn’t have a slow day at work, and on the way home think “I know, I know. I will jack a car, burgle a couple of homes!”. But a criminal never thinks differently, and they start young, puberty or earlier. That is why there should be the death penalty for felonies, because the career criminal won’t stop committing crimes unless he is dead, prison being finishing school for the Type.

    Nobody on the Face of this Earth gives a crap about one gang banger whacking another gang banger. Every death is one less criminal in the city, but an unknowable number of fewer crimes. And TPTB have absolutely no problem with collateral damage, especially when confined to non-Whites.

    It is not a bug, it is a feature. Whites flee, Minorities implode, eventually TPTB will just turn off electricity and utilities to inner cities, which will be too dangerous to enter anyway.

    Is there such a thing as “the minority community”?

    Why does the race of victims even matter though? Would any of this be okay if the victims were members of the white community?

  10. The photographs of Anthony Weiner’s genitalia may wind up causing the destruction of NYC and death of thousands of minorities. What strange turns history takes.

    If Weiner had been elected mayor, he’d have run the city like the Clintonian he was. Pay lip to SJW issues, but remember that you really represents the ultra rich and Wall St. So he would have kept a lid on crime.

    Who isn’t a minority in that city? There was a majority in 1965. There wasn’t in Honolulu, where I lived that year, nor in DC today.

    As always on Sunday evening, the Detroit TV stations do their rundown of the shootings of the weekend. How many shots, how many were shot, how many were killed. Lots of grieving black families. They don’t know what’s happening.

    Not one word about the race of the shooters. Ever. Maybe if you wait until the middle of the week. At the 5:30 news, not the main broadcasts.

    In other news, there was a billion dollar ballot initiative in southeastern Michigan to connect the Detroit bus system with the systems in all the suburbs. You could ride all the way into downtown Detroit! (And, one supposes, Detroit residents could come visit your town.)

    It didn’t pass.

    We need an FBI anti-gang taskforce to go after gangs the way we’ve gone after the Italian mob. It took us decades but the Italian mob is greatly weakened. Concentrating resources on gangs could do a lot to eliminate crime in minority neighborhoods.

    So why isn’t anyone suggesting this obvious move? It would bring tens of billions of extra dollars to the FBI budget. So why isn’t the FBI volunteering for the job? Why isn’t Congress and President Trump talking about giving it to them? What about all the protest groups? Why aren’t they demanding investigations, arrests and resources to loosen the grip of gangs over minority neighborhoods?

    Why indeed?

    The best thing whites could do for minorities is to agree that their lives matter and try to reduce the thousands of annual senseless shootings. The best things that minorities could do for themselves would be to demand effect crime fighting including the FBI in their neighborhoods. Yet nobody says a word.

    So the slaughter continues. But things don’t have to be that way. We can do something effective about minority-on-minority crime.

    Maybe Professor Moskos is an exception, but criminology had long seemed to me to be one of the most useless academic disciplines imaginable, because the most significant and self-evident factors involved in its subject cannot be discussed in polite society. This leaves criminologists with little to do other than study marginalia and practice the cant recitation “the causes of crime are complex.” I could do the same thing without a PhD.

  35. TheBoom says:

    The left and the blacks are quite the tag team when it comes to killing blacks. No wonder Maggie Sanger is such a hero to them. I imagine that this frustrates the Jews to some degree since they would much rather blacks focus a lot more of that violence on whites.

  36. @theMann

    A normal person doesn’t have a slow day at work, and on the way home think “I know, I know. I will jack a car, burgle a couple of homes!”. But a criminal never thinks differently, and they start young, puberty or earlier. That is why there should be the death penalty for felonies, because the career criminal won’t stop committing crimes unless he is dead, prison being finishing school for the Type.

    I’ve pointed out before that this is one of the problems of the modern nation state.

    In the “before time”, if you didn’t conform for the mores of your tribe … out you go, one way or another. (If you’re a male who didn’t like the leadership, you had the choice of sucking it up, running off or being part of coup attempt–which if unsuccessful meant death.)

    After the neolithic revolution–settlement, agriculture–you had to conform or eventually you’d be killed our chased out. The village idiot might be tolerated–if there was enough food. The village criminal was not.

    But in a modern nation state where the state is functional enough to suck up the “administration of justice” there’s a problem in that the community can’t necessarily enforce their norms. The state may force them to tolerate the presence of non-conforming minorities–e.g. Jews, Gypsies. But also the state may force them to tolerate the the presence of non-conforming individuals–i.e. criminals. In the Christian West the desire to make punishment “fair” and “just” and the belief in redemption means you often have criminals who just don’t go away! As long as they don’t get themselves killed, they keep being criminals–creator of chaos, harm, pain–for years, decades, their whole lives.

    It’s wrong. The correct approach is the old approach. If you don’t want to live by the community’s norms–you’re out. There should be zero tolerance for bad actors. Felonious activity doesn’t mean a stay in the state pen … it means expulsion from the nation. You’re packed off to the Aleutians and we’re never dealing with you again.

    Mafias are organized crime. Illegal gambling extortion white collar crime. Black gangs aren’t organized. Black gangs are just a media myth. The myth of black gangs is used from dey mammas to the MSM to excuse black crime.

    Black gangs are just loose associations of low life thugs who commit 3 man street robberies rapes store hold ups.

    The pimps are individually organized, one pimp, one or two male assistants and less than ten very low life street hookers. But nothing like an organization. The pimps are probably the most intelligent. They have to constantly recruit hookers because they kill so many of the hookers. That takes intelligence higher than the average black criminal.

    There’s a little loan sharking to drug addicts. That too is usually a one man operation. They can’t even get it together for extortion. Drugs sales are one wholesaler with at most 4 or 5 sales men.

    Black organized crime is generally government employees, and elected and appointed officials and government contractors

    The common street criminals can’t organize. Maybe because the average black man criminal has an IQ below 80 and a lot of the women IQs below 75.

    What most black criminals do doesn’t fit RICO parameters. RICO destroyed the white motorcycle gangs. But it was a stretch.

    I for one would rather the FBI SEC etc went after Wall Street, certain lending practices and white collar crime than wasting time and resources on retarded robbers and rapists.

    That’s all black gangs are, just associates who commit individual, not organized crimes.

    They can be controlled by local police and criminal courts if local police and criminal courts were allowed to do their job. Which they aren’t and haven’t been for 70 years. There’s the enormous expense of police the criminal court system and prisons.

    You could read the RICO law or speak with any federal, not county or state prosecutor or public defender if you know any for further information.

    There’s plenty of things that could be done but they’re not possible.

    The formula is (#wounded + #killed)/#killed

    All the numbers in the list below “the formula” are less than 1.

    However “the formula” will generate a number that is never less than 1 – because both #killed and #wounded are non-negative integers.

    The minimum of the function is 1 when #wounded = 0, and in the corner case where #killed = 0 it evaluates to +∞.

    prisons already cost too much. If we had a Siberia that too would cost a fortune. Abortion is the cheapest and only really effective way of reducing black crime. From the time they enter kindergarten blacks are a problem. From birth they clog up the child protective systems.

    Why should Whites have to take care of our own children and also a massive system to support black children who go into foster care as toddlers, become troublemakers at age 5 and criminals by 12?

    The only unusual thing those 8th graders who killed Tessa Majors did was kill her. Marauding around between 2/30 when school lets out till they finally go home at 10 pm is standard for black boys including the sons of the affirmative action middle class. They don’t even have to go home for dinner because they use the proceeds of their robberies to go to MacDonalds

    You’re right. The Asians mainly prey on their own ethnicity but import so many dangerous drugs like fentanyl .

    Hispanic gangs control many towns in the Central Valley of California and have done so for 60 years and it’s getting worse.
    The FBI did go after a Hispanic gang in the pretty little town of Santa Paula. Police called them in. They were invading houses and forcing the residents to sign over cars and even quit claim deeds to their real estate.

  51. @Forbes

    This is why urban whites (including Donald Trump before 2016) heavily favor gun control. European cities, even those with large minority populations, are still far safer than American cities. There may be more crime in Marseilles or even London than New York or Chicago but little to no chance you will be killed in a random shooting. It is also far easier for police to be effective without becoming a paramilitary when the police don’t worry about being shot.

    Blacks aren’t my – or your – people

    They are. So much of what makes America unique is the attempt to create some livable framework where whites and blacks can coexist in the same country. To the outside world America looks very “black” – the sports, the popular music, action films, the sexual display. Even the President boasts and preens and speaks simplified repetitive English like a black jock. White and black Americans are stuck in dysfunctional codependent relationship. Perhaps once the Asian immigrants take over that will matter less.

    Good question. I’d like to think that one sign of good ideation and decision-making would have been if the wholesale Black violence of the 1960s, rioting, would have been confined to the 1960s. That didn’t happen.

    All I can really think of is for intellectuals to summon the courage to ask tough questions. For example, is it possible to think Black violence has effectively been decriminalized, and, if so, what does that mean? Has Black violence a political content, and, if so, what is it?

    (I’m not a criminologist, but I’ll guess the number of reported and unreported crimes far exceeds the prison population. So, I guess it’s possible to think for talking purposes a career criminal who gets away with most of his crimes has, sort of, decriminalized his crimes.)

    Its unfortunate but – judging by their reaction to be policed and their generally non-existent cooperation with the police after one of theirs is killed – it seems to be how they’d prefer it. Or to put it another way, of the two sub-optimal choices, they prefer less police/more killings to the other way around.

    “American Carnage: Blacks Killing Blacks In Large Numbers”

    If it’s blacks killing blacks why is “American Carnage” the title?

    That’s a serious question.

    They don’t see themselves as American. They don’t value America.

    In spite of the fact that they’re the most pampered group in the country.

    “Blacks Killing Blacks In Large Numbers”

    And the problem is?

    Anyone who has been subjected to black on White violence, whether as a victim, witness, or relative or friend, for the last 50+ years, ie; their entire lives, knows exactly the reason and value of the above question.

    At this point, after everything, it deserves to be asked and isn’t asked to be provocative.

    That it might be seen as provocative says everything about the problem.
