    It was live streaming the attack on Facebook that made it nearly impossible NOT to charge them with hate crimes.

    And, it was there actions that caused them to be charged with hate crimes, not their speech.

    Hate speech, is not a crime in this Country.

    At least not yet.

    I think a good place to start in dealing with that is to lock up ALL the politicians and never allow them to see daylight again.
    Actually Chicago does not even make the top 40 according the FBI

    FBI data reveals some of the most violent cities in nearly every state - Business Insider

    I think 8 years is too little. 15 - 20 would of been better.

    St. Louis and Memphis are almost higher on the list than is Chicago. The RW just have a hard-on for Chicago for some reason.

    Chicago makes number 12 in murders per capita.

    But, St. Louis, Memphis, Baltimore and Detroit are always ahead of Chicago from what I can tell.

    This from 2016:

    HayJenn's post, and the link, was about violent crime rates. Murder would be just ONE of those crimes.

    It's the shear numbers of shootings that gets Chicago all the attention.

    Well yeah, Chicago has A population of something like 2.8 million people. St. Louis has a population of just over 325,000. Of course there's more shootings.

    Yet St. Louis has almost double the murder rate per capita.

    Kind of revealing isn't it?
