Thursday at around 8:30 p.m., in a garage in the Windy Cityâ€™s West Lawn neighborhood, an unknown number of unknown assailants bound the hands, feet, and mouths of four â€?Jaliscanâ€? men and shot each in the back of the head, execution style, murdering all four.
The victims have been identified as Alonso Villarreal, 32, Roberto Rivera, 30, Luis Santillian, 30, and Noel Casares, age unknown. All of the victims â€?were found face down on the garage floor, their hands behind their backs.â€?
â€?â€?Multiple weaponsâ€™ were found at the scene in the 6100 block of South Kildare Avenue, police said, but the motive for the slayings was not known. Police called the shootings â€?an isolated incident.â€™â€?The Tribune Co. reporters covering the story cite recent mass shootings before closing,
â€?Thursday night's shootings come about a month after Police Supt. Jody Weis said homicides have dropped sharply over the last two decades and, for the first seven months of 2010, are holding about even with last year.Nowhere in the article is the word â€?immigrantâ€? to be found.
He also noted other violent crimes have plummeted since the early 1990s. Weis also suggested that Chicago is not only battling street gangs but also an image problem when it comes to crime.
The summer started off with a particularly bloody weekend in June, when about 50 people were shot.â€?
Relatives say slaying of 4 men in garage a mystery by Pat Curry, David Elsner, Carlos Sadovi and Serena Maria Daniels, Chicago Breaking News (Tribune Co.), September 3, 2010.
Jaliscans or Arizonans?
â€?[Noel Casaresâ€™ sister-in-law, Maria Pelayo] said Noel and his wife came to Chicago about four years ago from Arizona where they lived for a time. They came up here to join Pelaya and to be with family, Pelaya said. She described Noel as a good father who was around for family gatherings and barbecues where the children would play with cousins. [The story spelled the sister-in-lawâ€™s name two different ways.]Shortly before the killings, a Hispanic witness had seen 10-15 Hispanic men drinking beer in the garage, some of whom called out to her, â€?Mami!â€?
She said she did not know who lived in the home and who the other men were. She said her sister and brother-in-law and other family members were from the coastal region in the state of Jalisco.â€?
How could a woman so close to her sister that the latter moved over 1,500 miles, in order to be with her, and who works side by side with her at their night job not know who the sister is living with?
Jalisco? Is that a new state in the Union that I have yet to hear of? I know thereâ€™s a state of Jalisco in â€¦ Mexico. But that would make the victims â€¦ â€?immigrants.â€? Why donâ€™t the Trib reporters want us to know that?
We know from clues that the four reporters left in the article, between quoted assertions of cluelessness from the police and the victims' relatives and friends, that the victims were Mexican aliens, living in a neighborhood that through immigration had been turned Hispanic, and that the victims had almost certainly either known their killers, or been introduced to them by people they did know. And the m.o. of the killing is characteristic of gang killings.
A City of â€?Isolated Incidentsâ€?
In addition to the one June weekend cited by the reporters, in which 52 people were shot, already in April, some Chicago lawmakers called for the National Guard to be brought in, in order to restore order. That was following a period in which over the course of two April weekends, two weeks apart, 58 people were shot, of whom at least seven died. (Most or all of the above shootings were committed in black neighborhoods, suggesting black shooters.)
Note that the Midwestern diversitopia is still not considered near the top of Americaâ€™s most violent cities. Thus, Supt. Weis notwithstanding, if anything, either the Windy Cityâ€™s image has yet to catch up to its violent reality, or the reality of the more violent cities is too gruesome even to contemplate.
Two forms of â€?exportationâ€? have conspired to reduce Chicagoâ€™s crime stats. As commenter â€?deachgoâ€? at the Trib story noted,
â€?If Daley did not tear down the projects and the residents had not moved to subsidized housing in the suburbs... homicides would have increased sharply over the last two decades and, for the first seven months of 2010, would be more than last year! [Link added.]The other form of exportation involves young, racist blacks taking mass transit from the cities to white suburbs, where they terrorize whites in front of the latterâ€™s homes and, utilizing the new, regional plannersâ€™ fetish, light rail systems, at suburban malls. Although a substantial proportion of the crimes are committed by urban blacks, because the scene of the crime is in the suburbs, the offense is not counted against a cityâ€™s tally.
My journalist friend Jim Bowman, who lives in Ernest Hemingwayâ€™s birthplace of Oak Park, just outside of Chicago and accessible from Chitown via the El, notes on his blog, Blithe Spirit, a five-on-one gang attack carried out against a 59-year-old retired teacher walking his dog at 8:45 p.m. on a late August evening. (The victim fought back heroically, but there were just too many racist young punks.)
A reader of the newspaper crime story commented that an attack with the same m.o. was carried out in nearby Elmwood Park the next evening. The Oak Park victimâ€™s wife spoke of â€?a gang initiation,â€? but thatâ€™s just another euphemism for a racist, black-on-white attack. (The newspaper has cut off commenting at its Web site.)
A City of Organizations
Chicago was already a diversitopia before the sort of mass, Third World immigration that gave us mass, execution murders of people from the state of Jalisco. It has been the national capital of genocidal black supremacy since circa 1934, when the Black Muslims (later renamed the Nation of Islam) resettled there, after the â€?racistâ€? Detroit Police Department made the groupâ€™s life uncomfortable in the Motor City, following a ritual murder carried out by one of the BM's members.
The genocidal, black supremacist group called Chicago â€?New Mecca.â€? It is from the NOIâ€™s Chicago headquarters that the orders went out, which issued in the early 1970sâ€™ murders of anywhere from 70 to 270 whites in California alone.
Chicago is also the home of genocidal, racial supremacist Black Liberation Theology, whose most famous devotee is the John Doe calling himself â€?Barack Obama.â€? BLTâ€™s credo is that God must destroy the â€?white enemy.â€?
Chicago is also the home of a mind-boggling array of established, racist black criminal gangs, including the Vice Lords, Gangster Disciples, Black Disciples, Black Gangsters, Crips, Bloods, etc.
Finally, Chicago is the home of racist, black, allegedly Christian pastors who adamantly support the ultra-violent criminals who daily make education impossible in the cityâ€™s public schools.
Now that black diversity is being met by â€?Jaliscanâ€? diversity, the only thing keeping Chicago from multicultural perfection would be an influx of, say, half a million Moslems.
Americaâ€™s Most Violent Cities?
On March 1, crimeinamerica.net cited the following cities as Americaâ€™s 20 â€?Most Dangerous Citiesâ€“Most Miserable Cities,â€? listing Chicago only at 10th.
1. Cleveland, Ohio. 2. Stockton, Calif. 3. Memphis, Tenn. 4. Detroit, Mich. 5. Flint, Mich. 6. Miami, Fla. 7. St. Louis, Mo. 8. Buffalo, N.Y. 9. Canton, Ohio. 10. Chicago, Ill. 11. Modesto, Calif. 12. Akron, Ohio. 13. Kansas City, Mo. 14. Rockford, Ill. 15. Toledo, Ohio. 16. New York, N.Y. 17. Sacramento, Calif. 18. Youngstown, Ohio. 19. Gary, Ind. 20. Philadelphia, Pa.
I have reservations about the foregoing list, however, due to its lack of New Orleans, Oakland, Richmond, CA (Californiaâ€™s murder capital), Camden, Baltimore, Houston, or Atlanta.
Perhaps we need to expand such lists to the 50, or 100, or 1,000 â€?Most Dangerous Citiesâ€“Most Miserable Cities.â€?
Another interesting angle is that crimeinamerica.net listed Buffalo as the eighth most violent city in America, while on June 4, Forbes listed the same city, site of a mass murder in front of a fancy, downtown eatery less than three weeks ago, as one of Americaâ€™s ten most family-friendly places. In that regard, crimeinamerica.net was much closer to the truth than Forbes, which manipulated its data by combining high-crime, diverse (pardon the redundancy) Buffalo with its low-crime, white suburbs.
Poor, pc Forbes. At the time, I noted that venerable media institutions are increasingly degenerating to the level of The Pretend Encyclopedia, aka Wikipedia.
