Black Lives Matter is conspicuous by its silence

Chicago had a rough month in August.

Malik Causey was one of 91 homicide victims in Chicago in August, the deadliest month in the city in two decades and the latest milestone for a metropolis becoming known for its murder rate. Already, killings here have jumped 46 percent over the same period last year, climbing past the 500 mark — a total larger than Los Angeles and New York combined.

An analysis of the August toll shows more clearly than ever who's dying in the Chicago slaughter and what's behind it: surging violence in a handful of the city's most impoverished neighborhoods, which are riven by loosely organized street gangs.

Young African-American men are the chief victims. In a city that's one-third black, the overwhelming majority of those murdered in August — 71 — were, like Malik, African American. Another 11 had Hispanic surnames. Almost half were in their teens or early 20s.

And more than 70 percent of those shot to death appeared on the Chicago police's "Strategic Subject List," which includes 1,400 people considered likely targets of violence based on gang involvement or criminal record.

There's more at the link.

And Black Lives Matter doesn't have a single bloody word to say about it . . . although it has plenty to say about individual black lives lost to police gunfire, even when the policeman was himself black, and the victim had both a gun and a lengthy criminal record.

I wonder if anyone at all in BLM understands the meaning of the word 'hypocrisy'?

You can't reason with animals or idiots, Pete. It's that simple.

But from my perspective as a hatey, nasty white male that works for a living and pays his bills... I don't see a down side here. Black gang bangers killing other black gang-bangers? Hell - I think the gubbiment should subsidize their ammo costs and that the monkeys that achieve a confirmed kill should get medals.

I have to agree with the Z-Man : I'm All Blacked Out.

I have stopped giving a damn about blacks constantly whining about self-induced problems.

I don't know what's worse, the deaths themselves (especially the small children and true innocents killed) or the hypocrisy of the people who work so hard to ignore all black lives except for those they can profit from. And the people who are paying for Black Lives Matter, who I suspect are as close to my definition of evil as you can get without growing horns, hoofs, and a barbed tail.

I live in the western old suburbs of Chicago Our "town" has had one shooting resulting in death in its history that I am aware of and I regularly travel without fear. A law enforcement office was shot down in front of his wife and son as he exited his personal vehicle after testifying against a gang member in a trial. The black men who followed him home and fired 8 bullets into him from a stolen car were not found. There were witnesses, they were not shot, it was a targeted "hit"

And not a peep on the news, except locally.

But go 20 miles east of here, closer to the city, and I won't even drive my car down the major freeways there at night.

BLM has blood on their hands because I guarantee you fewer cops are going into high crime areas bacause they don't want to be the latest media casualty for doing their job.

America doesn't have a gun problem. We have a feral Black problem.

Let's follow the left's "logic". Make murder illegal, and there will be no murders. Oh, wait. Teach young men not to kill. Better yet - ban them! Get rid of them all! After all, if it saves just one life, it's worth a little loss of freedom.

By now one could easily form various betting pools:

Which city will be the next to have a "black citizen killed by police"?

What will be the date of the next "mass shooting" incident?
BONUS QUESTIONS: What country will it occur in? Which city/town in said country will it occur in?

I wonder if the casinos could legally carry on such a betting pool.
It would be interesting to see what the level of participation would be in such.
