Shooting In Democrat Run City Puts Renewed Focus On Gun Violence Or Something

Let’s be honest, we all know what happened outside the ballpark for the Washington Nationals: a bunch of low lifes/gangbangers shooting each other up. The area itself is already known to be a high crime area, a 7 out of 10, 10 being the highest. Seriously, our nation’s capitol is a 3, meaning it is safer than just 3% of U.S. cities

Shooting near Nationals Park puts renewed focus on another weekend of gun violence in US

A series of shootings over the weekend in Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and other American cities underscored the ongoing rise in shootings and gun violence in the US this year.

The shooting near Nationals Park in DC was the most prominent of the incidents, as the audible gunshots sent fans and players scrambling for safety in the middle of a Washington Nationals baseball game.

Other shootings injured children, including a 1-year-old wounded on Saturday night in Philadelphia. They further a trend of heightened gun violence that emerged after Covid-19 lockdowns were lifted.

According to the FBI’s preliminary 2020 findings, the number of murders rose by 25% between 2019 and 2020 — the largest jump recorded in the US in a one-year period since the FBI began releasing annual figures in the 1960s. Findings from the National Commission on Covid-19 and Criminal Justice were similar, citing a 30% increase in the homicide rate between 2019 and 2020 in the 34 major cities it surveyed.

What do all these cities have to do with each other? They’re run by Democrats. The citizens overwhelmingly vote Democrat. This is where BLM/Antifa were running riot with little in the way of police response, often because command held the police back. These are places where the defund crowd was pushing hard. This is not gun violence, it’s Democrat violence. In Democrat run cities. Especially in areas where Democrats like to keep blacks down and in poverty, making them reliant on Government. And, let’s be deeply honest: most of these shootings are by either Hispanic gang members, most of which are illegal aliens, or by blacks. Call facts racist, but, 50% of the murders and shootings come from 13% of the population.

Which is why Democrats focus on the guns, rather than the people. Because the want a disarmed citizenry, at least the law abiding ones, and they’re just as racist towards blacks as pre-Civil Rights era.

At least 53 people were shot in 41 separate shootings in Chicago from Friday evening to Sunday evening, the police department’s incident reports show. Of the 53, six have died, the reports show.

Two people were injured, including a 1-year-old boy, in a shooting in West Philadelphia on Saturday night around 8 p.m., according to Philadelphia Police Department spokesperson Officer Miguel Torres.

So far this year, homicides in Philadelphia are outpacing last year’s numbers, according to police records. Philadelphia reached its 300th homicide of the year in July for the first time in over three decades, according to available online records dating back to 1989.

Additionally, the city has seen nearly 1,200 shootings this year, compared to 938 during the same time period last year, according to data through July 12.

One woman has died and six other people were wounded in a shooting in downtown Portland, Oregon, early Saturday, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

Two people were killed and four others injured in a shooting in Sacramento on Friday night, according to a news release from the Sacramento Police Department.

All Dem run cities. This has nothing to do with guns, and everything to do with the people.

    The masked Sallies of antifa are usually coddled by cops, but that didn’t happen this time.

    Teach those blue states, maybe they should keep mote of that money they send to DC that is then given to the poor red states and use it for themselves
    What do you think?

    • Professor Hale says:

      @ hairy,
      Despite your usual mindless blathering, you are onto something here. I had no idea you were such a supporter of the wealthy. Good for you. Of course, there are no states that send money to DC, neither “Red” nor “Blue”. Money to DC comes from taxes that are paid by individuals. States pay nothing. It would be great for ALL individuals to pay the government less of what they make and keep more for themselves, regardless of where they live. And it would be great for government to exercise less power over those same people using that money. That used to be a conservative idea, back when there were conservatives. Welcome to the party, Hairy. We will have you supporting flying a huge Trump flag from your pick up truck in no time.

      • Kye says:

        We’ve been trying to explain that to Hairy for what, two years now? He, like the other two, has been so brainwashed by leftist bilge he cannot think logically. He probably actually believes the “red states” are paying the outrageous federal taxes to support the blue states. He just can’t understand it’s the people not the blue state that pays and the people not the red state that receives. The good news is that since the dems have become the party of the rich they are fuking their own. It’s about time.

        I guess he can live with the crime, drugs, corruption and massive inner city poverty as long as the “states” are blue. Sounds like he’d fit in better in Cuba. Fukin moron.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          You know connies have lost when they resort to semantic arguments. LOL. So blue states don’t pay taxes, it’s the productive citizens in blue states that support the less productive red states. Got it. You’re welcome.

          We naive Dems actually believe paying our taxes is an obligation. You know, that whole taxes are the price of civilization thing.

          The problem with right-wing cult of mindlessly lowering taxes for the wealthy is that someone ends up paying the bills or we keep adding to the debt. Cities and states receive federal funds (from the generous Blue State citizens!), when those funds are reduced (which originate from progressive taxes – you know where the wealthy pay more than the working class) and states and localities make up the shortfalls with regressive sales and property taxes and fees. It’s a good deal for the wealthy!

          What has worked before? Progressive income taxes. Over the past 40 years (remember the Reagan Revolution?) the wealthy have been doing fantastic, but the working class has been falling behind. Now tax rates are only part of the problem. Policies on trade, labor, healthcare, infrastructure, monetary, fiscal, minimum wage, bankruptcy all favor the rich, now more than ever.

          You may recall a simpler time, e.g., post WWII when a family could get by on one income, take a vacation, have a car, a house, public schools, Blue Cross/Blue Shield… taxes built the interstate system, schools, universities… top “earners” had top marginal rates of 90%!

          From 2014-2018, right-wing hero Jeff Bezos, chief executive of Amazon and the owner of The Washington Post, paid $973 million in taxes on $4.22 billion in income, but as his wealth soared by $99 billion, resulting in a 0.98% “true tax rate.” So even in Blue States like WA, it may not be the wealthy who are sending their taxes to DC but the peons.

          You should listen to the Warren’s and Sanders’ on how to engineer a true populist revolution. It’s not about Mexicans, Negroes, BLM, masks, antifa, national anthems or endemic commies as you guys fear, it’s about the assault of the elites on the working class – both white, Black and Hispanic.

          As long as we fight about bullshit the wealthy and corporations continue to have their way with us.

          Cons vote to retain what dignity and advantages they have left, libs vote to expand opportunities for all (except the elites!). The current way is not working for anyone except the super rich.

          • Professor hale says:

            “Cons vote to retain what dignity and advantages they have left, libs vote to expand opportunities for all (except the elites!). ”

            Your lack of self-awareness is staggering.

          • Kye says:

            Everything the Warren’s and Sanders’ promote has been tried and done before and you know it. It ALWAYS ends up in mass poverty, famine, gulags, labor camps and mass genocide. Only an idiot like yourself is capable of suggesting such obvious stupidity. Just look at Cuba, moron.

            Why does American education manufacture communist morons?

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Rimjob just posting another nonsensical mish-mash of a word salad that even he can’t understand.
            Appears he uses a template from some other so-called lib “deep thinker” with Rimjob rearranging the wording to where nothing is quite coherent to another reader i.e. the assault of the elites on the working class – both white, Black and Hispanic. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

          • Professor Hale says:

            @Kye,
            You are totally not being fair. Communism works out great for the communists at the top. Stalin through Gorby lived like kings. The Castros are billionaires. Every African Marxist dictator lives like a king. The Kim family is wealthy beyond human imagination.

            Even communists in the USA, despite having no marketable skills, do very well for themselves financially, like Sanders and Warren and the BLM co-founders.

            The whole point of communism is getting wealthy… by using the force of government to steal it from everyone else.

          • david7134 says:

            Prof,
            The other thing is that the very people yelling for communism, like our three stooges, will be the first casualties.

            Stop being a hypocrite blindly repeating your Masters’ lies.
            Do your own research… become Right.

          • Jl says:

            Yes, J, and the US has one of the most progressive tax systems in the world, so what in the world would you be complaining about, unless you don’t know what you’re talking about?

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Poor Bungholio takes his tongue out his master’s bunghole long enough to type is usual bullshit.

            When he’s not strangling puppies he’s rimming.

          • Kye says:

            “From 2014-2018, right-wing hero Jeff Bezos, chief executive of Amazon and the owner of The Washington Post, paid $973 million in taxes on $4.22 billion in income, but as his wealth soared by $99 billion, resulting in a 0.98% “true tax rate.”

            Again you lie. First Jeff Bezos has donated to BOTH parties however according to The Center for Responsive Politics he gives far more to democrats and democrat causes. Fact is politically he’s more of a Libertarian than anything but that’s why you hate him so much. As a Libertarian he believes in equal taxation and Freedom which you commies despise.

            Also you said he paid about a billion in taxes on 4.2 billion in income. That’s about 20-25% if you numbers are accurate (which I doubt). Then you opined that since his wealth went to 99 billion his “true tax rate” was less than 1%. Since when is what you already paid taxes on (your accumulated wealth) taxed yearly as income? Do you think it should be.?

            Do you believe confiscatory tax rates should be mandated by the Biden Junta? He can do it, he’s a dictator now. Anything NOT being done to your liking in America now is YOUR illegal dictators fault. Nobody else.

            I say confiscate all the wealth from anyone worth more than $10 million. That’ll wipe out the entire 1% of earners. Fukem, right Elwood?

      • Hairy says:

        Wasn’t it your dear leader Trump who pushed the trillion dollar tax cut for the wealthy?

        • Professor Hale says:

          It must be terrible living inside your head with all those voices yelling at each other.

          You were doing so good back when it was just “wealthy people who live in Blue states”. Here’s to hoping that some day you will find enough human compassion in your health to support wealthy people on Red states too.

          Why does Trump give tax breaks to the “wealthy”? Like asking Willie Horton why he robbed banks. It’s where the money is. Wealthy people pay the taxes so they benefit when it goes down.

        • Jl says:

          John-please show the wording in the tax cut bill where it was specifically designed for the wealthy, as you seem to always state. Good luck on that. And please fill us in on your definition of “wealthy”
          Of course Johnny, not being too smart, forgets that it his “dear leader” whose policies are in part driving up the cost of energy and in turn driving up inflation, which is the same as a tax increase, and affects the poor the most.

  3. Professor Hale says:

    “Additionally, the city has seen nearly 1,200 shootings this year, compared to 938 during the same time period last year, according to data through July 12.”

    Maybe this is related to a change in government policy since last year. Maybe something to do with the war on cops. Naw. I’m sure it’s just a totally random fluke that was totally unpredictable.

    • Kye says:

      You know it’s Covid/climate/Trump and White supremacy’s fault! Ask the Three Blind Mice.

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    More Guns! Fewer Crimes!

    When will leftocommies understand that the only way to stop a bad guy with a is with a good guy with a gun?!?

    Clearly, we just haven’t reached the point of having enough good guys with guns yet.

    Neither global warming nor white supremacy make things any better, but they’re not always the prime driver.

      Two more “victims” of White supremacy. I was stunned to see they are democrats, they are black, and they are corrupt. (sarc). She has a net worth of between $1 and $5 million. Not bad for a girl who never had a job married to a clown who “worked” (past tense) for UPS. She refuses to verify either her income or where said income is derived.

      The corruption of the demofascist party runs deep.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Is Kye in favor of restrictions on how a patriot can store their firearms? That seems unAmerican.

  6. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Doogie Hoser DC,

    Didn’t you see what we wrote? More guns, fewer crimes!

    We have some 20 or so, ourselves, since we don’t know when the next right-wing apocalypse will break out.

    Half measures would never work and we’ll never limit guns in America since it would be unConstitutional.

    It’s clear that other nations having tight gun control laws have far fewer firearm related violent crimes. Fewer homicides, fewer suicides, fewer mass shootings. 136 other nations have a homicide rate lower than the US. Is it because we all have guns? No. We have more poverty than many nations, greater inequality and we may just be more violent (culturally, not genetically). We’re conditioned to fear others. We are aggressive by culture. After all, might makes right. Sometimes, the best defense is an aggressive offense.

    BUT MEANINGFUL LIMITS ON FIREARMS WILL NOT HAPPEN HERE. A lunatic can walk into an elementary school, or a church, or a university, a mall, a nightclub and shoot dozens of people. If we consider the slaughter of 6 yr old children to be the price we pay for FREEDOM! So be it. I’m on your side. Relax.

    • Bill589 says:

      Hypocrite Elwood – Repeating your Masters’ lies again I see. Other nations have a lot less Liberty than America. Take our right to arm ourselves away, and we lose other rights too. As many as your Masters want to take away from us.
      Why don’t you read a history book, learn the truth, and stop blindly repeating your Masters’ lies?

  7. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Looks as if we touched some nerves!! LOL.

    Are all right-wingers such dumbasses as you guys? Conservatives used to be able to make arguments, but you dumbass nuCons have pretty much given up on that. We blame Sarah Palin and the TeaBaggers. Conservatism was replaced by blatant white, christian nationalism, race and religious hatred, fear and hatred and of course the lust for authoritarian power. NuCons will do anything to maintain their minority hold on power.

    So was Dwight D. Eisenhower a communist? Are Israel, Australia, S Korea, Germany, France, UK, Canada, Belgium etc communist countries?

    Mr est is the smartest person here by far, making the rest of you pikers, look like, well… pikers, so he probably does understand top marginal rates even if none of you others do. From the end of WWII until JFK, the top marginal rate was 90% or more. From Kennedy up to Reagan it was 70%. The RR tax cuts starting in 81 sent deficits soaring, debt climbing, infrastructure ignoring and wealth/income inequality expanding, forcing poor GHW Bush to advocate a tax increase! Thanks, Ronnie. Were Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Carter all commies? How did we let them get elected?

    You all repeat the same bullshit, it’s impossible to tell you apart! LOL. Only the brilliant mr est, who’s paid great sums to be so smart, uses any original material, so where does the dumbass crewe get theirs? Pudendum? twitter? Breitbart?

    • drowningpuppies says:

        • est1950 says:

          Every nation is destined to fail. The USSR said they would destroy the USA from within without ever firing a shot. They died because they ran out of 5 year plans that the people believed and even the communists themselves no longer believed their own lies. The nation was broke and the USSR with its 10,000 Nuclear weapons went out with a whimper.

          Communist China has taken up the mantle left behind by the USSR legacy. Their primary emphasis has always been India. If they can take over India then they not only have added 1.5 billion to their 1.3 billion souls but have taken over 70 percent of the worlds production and cheap labor.

          Additionally they will have taken over a Navy giving them the largest Modern Navy in the world and they will absorb 300 plus new Nuclear weapons and the ability to make 2x’s what they can produce now.

          A nation comes to an end. Almost every nation on this planet has collapsed throughout history and while many of them are still around they are nothing like they used to be.

          However in the age of enlightenment and the Internet:

          The collapse of modern society through world wide anarchy brought to you by the INTERNET will create a cultural dark age that might last for at least 100 years or more. I have cautioned people of not only the repercussions of allowing unfettered internet but even more this world is on a collision course with total societal break down and collapse.

          The resulting anarchy will be mind blowing and now Elwood you know why Americans have armed themselves. I surmise that people like You and ME sure would like to keep what others want and with no societal structure the only thing that happens is that the STRONG SURVIVE.

          And you do not survive where there is no law and order or societal structure without weapons to defend yourselves.
