750 homicides 2016, more than 2 per day. 3,500 people shot. No police department can investigate that many major crimes thoroughly. Chicago is out of control. So Sad.

That's alot. The killers will kill themselves off eventually and the problem will go away on its own.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

The problem is the gangs keep drawing new members in because for many youth it seems like their only opportunity. They know they may get shot but the chance to make real money overrides it and besides, they all think they are bulletproof. Sadly the numbers show otherwise.

How many of those are thugs killing thugs vs domestic type things? if they are mostly thugs then who cares, let them shoot themselves. It is a form of population control.

One problem is that most of these thugs do not know how to use automatic weapons properly (Why is it so easy to get them!) and often shoot innocence bystanders including those in nearby houses, cars, etc. I actually live in a suburb of Chicago but we have gangs too! This last weekend in Chicago they were looking to shoot the owner of a van (a thug) who was not in it and killed two young kids and injured the mother. I would guess about 25-30% of the Chicago Area shooting deaths are innocents.

I suppose you have a point. In 1929, right before the St. Valentines Day Massacre I read that January only had 26 murders on record. Those numbers are almost doubled in recent years on a per month basis. 1929 didn't have the gun control we have today. Of course in 1929 you didn't turn on the T.V. or watch a Movie 24/7 with nothing but killing on it or stories about killing. Honestly, nobody to blame but ourselves. We constantly pay to watch people get killed over and over again. We have got it down to about $1.25 to watch some good old killing on our 60 inch LED Screens right at home. If that isn't good enough... lets watch it on our tablets or right on our cell phones for free on YouTube or just download it for free via some torrent or file sharing program! Hollywood seems to be making Billions off of it. How many parents let all their children watch nothing but Rape, Murder, Stealing and oh don't forget about good old Porn! I know, I know. It isn't my fault! I am just watching a movie about bank robbers and killing police and some innocent bystanders. It is just make believe. It's entertainment! I am not directly or indirectly causing this problem in Chicago or in some third world country that doesn't have running water. I am just sitting here eating popcorn and drinking my sugar free soda watching a movie. Leave me alone!

The numbers are only on record too! How many murders go unsolved or worse yet you don't even know about? If I remember correctly, in the good old USA we have more murders that aren't even known about compared to what is on file. Just look at all those missing persons lists. I think I will go watch some re-runs of Unsolved Mysteries, CSI, Law & Order, and some other show about killing and whatnot! How many of you sickos watch or watched Dexter?? This sick TV show ran for 8 seasons and had 98 episodes! How much money was made or is still made off of this twisted show?? Don't sit there and watch Dexter and complain about all the killings in Chicago and tell me how horrible things are!

Interesting Note:

In February 2008, reruns (edited down to a TV-14 rating... LOL 14 Rating... 14 years old no problem watching this show!) began to air on CBS, although the reruns on CBS ended after one run of the first season. The series has enjoyed mostly positive reviews throughout its run and popularity, including four consecutive Prime time Emmy nominations for Best Drama Series starting in season two.

The series has enjoyed MOSTLY POSITIVE REVIEWS... MOSTLY POSITIVE!!

FOUR CONSECUTIVE PRIME TIME EMMY NOMINATIONS FOR BEST DRAMA SERIES... Go F yourselves CBS and all the fans who watched this and let their 10 year olds watch it every week!!

Hey... I'm a cynic and a realist.

The cynic says: "Don't bother, it's gonna end bad, anyway"... while the realist says: "Let's face it, the cynic is right."

A cynic is a realist with:

a) no sense of humor
b) a negative outlook on life
c) a compulsive urge to scorn everything
d) reminds everybody far and wide, 24/7 that the world is unfair and/or mean and/or dying, etc.

Your comment made me laugh. I really don't know how my post went so far. I was only going to compare the murder rate from the roaring twenties with the modern numbers. I just got hot sucker when I thought about everyone crying about how horrible things are in the world but just sit around and continue to feed the problem but don't even realize they are helping to cause the problem to begin with! It doesn't matter really. I am just typing. I am just killing more time doing nothing with my life until the one day that my own demise comes along. Don't worry we are all going down soon enough. How many famous people this week alone died from heat attacks or some other health issue?

Truthfully this website is pointless and pure evil for me. I started to come on this forum to look for plays and share information about plays around Vegas but I just keep getting caught up in these meaningless conversations that don't do anything for me but waste my time. I have noticed in the months past that sharing information or finding plays on this site just isn't really going to happen. Romes told me a few weeks ago that the door is right over there and I keep trying to go through it but I keep eating all the bait laying around on these threads. What can I say? I have an addictive personality. It isn't my fault... or is it??

On the other hand... I did see the wizards pick awhile back about the over on Green Bay and Chicago and I was gonna take his advice but I was unable to get to the book in time :{

Early Bird gets the worm so to speak!

Safe to say one major city in the United States will show more murders than all of Canada in 2016

I don't think what you wrote was pointless or meaningless. No more so than any kind of speculative writing. Some of it was interesting and thought provoking. I've thought of the media in that way also. But then I also realize that when I was a kid there were all kinds of crime shows and westerns with lots of violence and yet nowhere near the amount of carnage in the real world that is out there today. But then again you could say that the media today is more graphic and more gratuitous. So, it's not really clear to me if that is a main cause or not. There is the glamorization of the gangsta life. But I've seen documentaries indicating that Bonnie and Clyde and John Dillinger were glamorized and were heroes to lots of people back then. So, the issue is unresolved. But worth discussing.
