Obama’s Hometown Sets Deadly New Record


Chicago, Obama’s hometown, is not a good place to live.

The teachers refuse to teach, and crime is horrible.

Also, their beloved “deep dish” is nothing more than oversized meat and tomato pie (but that’s for another post!)

We know about the city’s past murder rate, but the media wants us to think it is all under control.

Not quite…

As the first quarter of 2016 nears an end, violence in Chicago has reached levels unseen in years, putting the city on course to top 500 homicides for only the second time since 2008.

As of 6 a.m. Wednesday, homicides totaled 135, a 71 percent jump over the 79 killings in the same year-earlier period, official Police Department statistics show. That represented the worst first quarter of a year since 136 homicides in 1999, according to the data.

Shootings have jumped by comparable numbers as well. As of Wednesday, at least 727 people had been shot in Chicago so far this year, a 73 percent rise from 422 a year earlier, according to a Tribune analysis of department data.

Worse yet, that jump follows two consecutive years in which shootings rose by double digits, the analysis found. Homicides also rose by about 12.5 percent last year over 2014

Yep. And yet Obama wants to lecture us on civility and crime? He should take care of his own home before he lectures the rest of us!
