Philadelphia, City of Brotherly Love?
At the risk of sounding macabre, I am amused by this story out of Philadelphia. While Americans are huddling in fear of unseen “Muslim terrorists” and are being brainwashed into believing that as long as they send their young troops to be blown apart in Iraq, the fight will be there and not at home, while they suck up the bullshit that Bush is keeping them safe, they are actually slaughtering each other in their own neighborhoods and city streets much faster than al Quaeda could ever hope to.
The city(Philadelphia) of 1.4 million people had 392 homicides in 2007, down slightly from a nine-year high of 406 in 2006. That high rate, fueled by drugs, poverty, and the easy availability of guns, has led civic and community leaders to repeatedly call for an end to the killings.
Now, I haven’t researched it, but I think the total number of killings by “Muslim terrorists” in Philadelphia in 2007 was ZERO and that was neither up nor down from the 2006 total of ZERO.
Police plan to put 200 more officers on the streets, boost the number of surveillance cameras to 250 from the current 26, and apply a “stop and frisk” strategy targeting people suspected of carrying illegal guns.
In other words, all black males between the ages of 12 and 65.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Americans, with their sickeningly liberal gun laws, create their own terrorism every day in every city in their country. And folks, your president, that jerk who says his illegal war is “protecting you from terrorists” does nothing about it. The national stats and comparison to al Quaeda for 2006 are here.
Final note. For comparison sake, in my city, indeed in my country, which has THREE TIMES THE POPULATION of Philly, there were 18 murders in 2007. And every one of them was solved.
Keep your guns. Murder each other. Leaves more for the rest of us.
I just finished the story above and saw this one. Also out of Pennsylvania.
A woman’s body was cut into pieces and dumped along lengthy stretches of two busy highways in eastern Pennsylvania, police say.
The Morning Call says highway workers reported discovering a bag of body parts yesterday morning on Interstate 380 in the Poconos.
State police then found a severed head. Over the next few hours, they recovered six more bags of body parts, some on Interstate 80. “There’s still quite a bit (of the body) missing,” said police.
And you’re worried about foreign terrorists????? Hell, I live 40 miles from the largest population of Muslims in the world and I’m afraid to come to the US!
