2017: Chicago’s homicides outnumber US military casualties 18:1


The moniker “Chiraq” aptly earned.

As reported by Michael W. Chapman at CNSNews.com: There were 664 homicides in Chicago in 2017* and, for comparison, 37 casualties in the U.S. military in its myriad operations around the globe. That’s according to data from the Chicago Tribune and from the Department of Defense’s press office.

*HeyJackass! shows the final homicide tally at 675.

The Chicago deaths are for the period Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 31, 2017; the military deaths are from Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 22, 2017, which is the latest update on casualties by the DoD posted so far. (There may have been a few more military casualties in December.)

From the data available, it shows that Chicago suffered 17.9 times more homicides than the U.S. military worldwide — combat and non-combat related deaths — last year.

For Chicago, 664 homicides — murders by shooting or other means (not including suicides) — averages to 1.8 homicides every day of the year.

For the U.S. military, some of the deaths were combat related and some were non-combat related. For instance, the first death, on Jan. 7, 2017, was a non-combat related incident. Spc. Isiah L. Booker, of Cibolo, Texas, who was supporting Operation Inherent Resolve, died in the incident, which is under investigation.

On Jan. 29, 2017, Chief Special Warfare Operator William “Ryan” Owens, 36, of Peoria, Ill., died in “the Arabian Peninsula of Yemen, of wounds sustained in a raid against al-Qaida,” said the DoD.

On April 8, 2017, Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, 37, of Edgewood, Md., was killed in the Nangarghar Province of Afghanistan when “his unit came in contact with enemy forces using small arms fire during combat operations,” reported the DoD.

U.S. troops have been fighting in Afghanistan since October 2001, more than 16 years ago.  U.S. troops have been in Iraq since March 2003, more than 14 years ago.

The Chicago homicides are monitored and documented by the Chicago Tribune staff 24 hours a day, according to their website, “Crime in Chicagoland.”

    According to the mayor, it reduces the population, reduces the welfare rolls, and gives the city a boost in city revenue for the funeral homes, cemeteries, and floral businesses.

    The mayor says the city is booming.

  2. Almost sounds like Memphis every day you turn on the tv and see how many got shot for the day and how many lived or make the hospital. Sad state of affairs we live in these days. God is our only answer.

    • How very sad. This governor (RINO) is a shame and an embarrassment to the people of the State of Illinois. This “legislation” makes no sense, other than appeasing the crazy, hopeless gender confused voters (what, maybe 3 percent of the population?). I hope he ends up in jail, much like so many other corrupt Illinois’ governors.

  4. I’m with kommonsentsjane, – It’s not like “nice people are killing other nice people.” “It’s Bad People killing other Bad People.” Bluntly Speaking, = for every criminal killed on the street, = saves the decent-taxpaying folks $135,000 a year in jail-time incarsaration costs, – medical & psyco. fees..

  6. Truth be told; Once Barack became POS, Chicago became front and Center or Chiraq in the eyes of Nation. The man lover would not even speak out against the crimes and high murder rate for fear of Steeping on the mayors toes.Could selling out Chicago been the trade-off for becoming President?

    • Lavelle . . . the very fact that you cited, “The man lover would not even speak out against the crimes and high murder rate . . .” This very fact damns him from ever being considered as a “good President.” I have little doubt that African Americans T-H-O-U-G-H-T that “their time” had come. They finally had a man in the Presidency who would see the problems in the inner city neighborhood, and enact measures that would be a blessing to lift those who would wish be lifted out of the dregs of being left behind. . . . yet, he did nothing of the sort. He was a plant, he was a puppet for those who wished to enslave ALL UNITED STATES CITIZENS in the grand scheme of those who want a New World Order. That New World Order would enslave EVERY ONE, so that the few could live lives of ease at the expense of everyone who would be at very bottom rungs.

      • Furthermore, not only do I not want to live off the effort and work of others . . . I do not want them to be dependent off the effort and work that I put in. Slavery has many facets; a hundred years ago, it entailed dark skinned people working cotton fields, doing house choirs . . . in modern day, it entails those who are productive and do work, are subject to having a portion of their wages (which they worked for) confiscated and reapportioned to others who choose not to work. I am excluding from this scenario, those who are physically, or mentally incapable of earning their own living from the definition of “those who choose not to work.” This modern day enslavement is just as real an instance of “slavery” as what those who worked plantations long ago.

  7. Its not as simple as bad guys killing bad guys either. All are effected; I live in the city, my children, my nieces, nephews, mother, relatives and friends as well.People have to go to School, work etc, we are all among the so-called bad guys. Robberies, home invasions and car jacking s are on the rise in the city now. This translates to anybody being a target for the so called bad guys, even myself.

  8. There is no reform or recovery possible for Chicago , except police state , and that’s the intent of these deliberately caused and provoked troubles . The specifics and details , GOD will reveal to anyone who asks Him as a righteous christian . Righteousness means being in a right relationship to JESUS CHRIST . He will also show the approved their correct course of action and give them help .

  9. Until the mayor changes his feelings and concerns, nothing will be done. Those being killed and doing the killing are people that he can’t use or benefit from.
    He considers those people expendable.

  10. You’d be surprised at how many dummies still believe that Obama was the Black Messiah or something. All i hear now is how Trump is ruining everything that Obama established, blah, blah. Even though they cant name one thing that the Tranny lover did. The only thing that I know for sure is that we face an uphill battle to change things. Chicago; we have a problem

    • Lavelle . . . From my prospective, all the nation, and much of the world, looks on, completely mystified as to why this wholesale bloodshed continue to go on–day in and day out. We see the mayor sit and do nothing of any constructive nature to stem the tide of bloodshed. Many of us remain dumbfounded that this could even go in the United States of America.

  11. At the risk of being misunderstood, ‘WE” do not have a problem. What “WE” must do is stop talking about “race” and start talking about citizenship. We have standards, laws and rules. People are either “good citizens” and abide by them, or they are not and should suffer the consequences.

    Whitey is not obligated to find ways to make life more acceptable to those who don’t like it the way it is. Instead of rending our garments, gnashing our teeth and whimpering about what a “raw deal” some race or another got, we need to continue to build a society that people can be proud of. That means one where anybody can work if they’re able.

    We are and have been establishing a society of reprobates. “Black Lives Matter (BLM)” is the antithesis of all of what I’m talking about. EVERYBODY’s life matters. Those that threaten other’s lives should be dealt with accordingly.

  12. “We” in this instance are the Citizens of Chicago who are exposed to potentially dangerous situations, including Violent crimes committed by alleged criminals and crimes by the hands of our own Government towards its citizens (that’s a problem.) “Whitey” or Blacky or whomever has never been obligated to do anything for me or anyone who I associate with. I, like most of my friends were raised by parents who instilled in me the importance of taking care of yourself and thinking for yourself. What is a good Citizen? The lawmakers who support Martial Law? the Lawmakers who unconstitutionality banned hand guns in Chicago, while the criminals have plenty of them? Or maybe the Police who killed unarmed civilians, are they good Citizens. As far as BLM or Black lives matter goes, Never, ever, has the topic come up in any conversation of mine or any fiends of mine, so I’m not sure what that means. It sounds stupid considering all the Black on Black crime. There are many racial groups in this country, so yes, All lives certainly do matter. Lavelle doesn’t play the race card, because I never had to. My Father raised me to be a man and never Sugarcoated things with me. I therefore learned to tell it like it is.

    • Lavelle . . . It is more than evident, looking at the collective additions you have made to this discussion, that you are a man who any of us would welcome as a neighbor. If we just had more, far more men who had been raised, as your father raised you, all of our neighborhoods would be better for it. God Bless and Keep you!

  14. You know what is going to solve this problem. It will solve this problem in every major city in the US and much of the western world at the same time.
    It will solve it for the good and the bad alike, it’s entirely non discriminatory, it will kill everyone it can.

    Nuclear, biological, and chemical warfare.

    The next war will eliminate the most densely populated US cities via nbc. They’ll poison our watersheds, spread pestilence in the air, and of course there’s the sunshine canned in Russia, China, or North Korea to give us sunburns via the light of 10 million suns.

    I’m surprised it hasn’t been done already. The nwo knows America is the only place left in the world that resists satan, everyone else is going along with building the empire of the devil, so America must be destroyed, and to do that it will take the rest of the world combined. They just need the right excuse, then the rest of the world, likely aligned very closely with the vote in the un over the Jerusalem embassy move, will attack us and pay us back for all their own sins, as well as our leadership’s.

    You know things will never change for the better in the larger cities, what starts as a murder a day soon becomes 3 or 4 and the people accept it as a fact of life in a place unfit for raising children. Once you get over 25k population the cloak of anonymity is found by more and more of those who think they are owed something and the crimes soar.

    This is cold, but I am convinced the USA is the whore of Babylon, you know, the one who is destroyed in the space of an hour according to Revelation? Just saying.


  15. Thank you for the compliment Auntie Lulu. You are absolutely correct in your assessment; more young people do need to have positive male role models in their life, to know that they have options and choices and are not designated to a negative future. May God Bless and Keep you!!

  16. That whole city is insane! Did you see on activistpost.com how a good Samaritan was letting homeless people sleep in his basement for free and was threatened by the local authorities for ‘code violations’ and said they would take his house if he didn’t stop letting them stay there? Apparently it is OK for them to freeze to death instead. They truly are ILLinois.

  18. Ill-Annoy. have lived here 20 odd years…..can’t wait to move. last daughter is almost out of HS….when she is finished….we are finished. What most don’t know, is that Madigan has held power of the state house for 20+ yrs. He and his band of fellow Filthy Animals are the problem…the cancer of Ill Annoy. You disagree with him…and part of the machine…? you go to jail….look at the last 2 Governors of the state…before Rauner (self enriched, not part of the machine)Power and self enrichment are there only goals…all while riding the back of the Common Man. The term Ill and Chiraq could not be more correct.
