My Take on the endless carnage in Chicago

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT concerning Chicago, IL since more and more people are advancing a rumor of a cop conspiracy in the murder of so many Blacks in the Windy City.

The theorem of some other factor is plausible; won’t rule out anything, but some Black people consider it unconscionable that the level of Black hatred could be so virulent as to rise to fratricide. Unless you lived amidst the violence, it may seem unfathomable. But I’m from Compton and I remember the height of the “killing fields” there during the mid-70s to the early 90s. Those were Crips and Bloods awash in a spate of bloodletting never before seen in the American urban core. It filled two City cemeteries to capacity. Police had little to do with it – and early on the cops were mostly Black with a Black police chief.

Now in Chicago in 2019, I don’t give the police that much aplomb to pull off such a clandestine conspiracy without one single complaint or mistake involving thousands of killings. They would have to be using unmarked non-departmental ammo, and non-departmental firearms, patrolling in unmarked vehicles. Uneducated, unsophisticated, unemployed Blacks competing in the street to ply the illicit drug trade could very well fuel a conflagration of unchecked mayhem as we are now witnessing.
