Civilization ho

Nice to see our cities in such a tranquil state -- from the Chicago Tribune:
Prosecutors: Pregnant teen begged for her life before gunman shot her
Moments before she was slain last week on Chicago's Southwest Side, 17-year-old Charinez Jefferson begged the gunman not to shoot because she was pregnant, prosecutors said today.

Despite her plea, Timothy Jones, 18, opened fire on Jefferson anyway, yelling an expletive at her as he shot her in the head, prosecutors said. He then stood over her as she lay on the ground and fired several more times, striking her in the chest and back.

Jefferson was pronounced dead a short time later, but doctors were able to successfully deliver her baby boy, who remained in critical condition today, Assistant State's Attorney John Dillon said.
And the reason:
Jones had seen Jefferson walking with a rival gang member in the 3000 block of West 64th Street and approached them in a car, Dillon said. He got out of the vehicle and fired at least one shot at the rival, who ran off, leaving Jefferson to fend for herself. After begging Jones for mercy, Jefferson was shot at "point-blank range," Dillon said.
Animal than needs to be put down. And that was just one story -- here is another, also from the Chicago Tribune:
1-year-old girl shot in head in South Chicago
A 1-year-old girl is fighting for her life after being shot in the head this morning on a street in the South Chicago neighborhood, police said.
Rahm is doing such a great job as mayor. And it isn't just Chicago -- here is a great one from Florida. From the London Daily Mail:
Woman 'encouraged husband to have sex with 12-year-old girl so that she would get pregnant and they could claim more benefits'
A woman encouraged her husband to have sex with a 12-year-old girl so that she would get pregnant and they could claim extra cash benefits.

Alicia Bouchard even sat and watched while her 26-year-old husband had sex with the underage girl at their Florida home.

According to an arrest warrant, the 41-year-old wanted the girl to fall pregnant so that she and her husband would have extra income from state benefits.
The picture of the two perps at the link indicates a very shallow genetic pool -- some bleach is definitely needed. And how is Gotham City doing -- not very well. From CBS New York:
NYPD: Crime Spikes Dramatically In Parts Of Big Apple
New York City�s overall crime rate could increase for the first time in decades, driven by alarming spikes in murder, rapes and robberies in many neighborhoods.

A 400 percent increase in murders in tony Williamsburg; a 400 percent increase in rapes in Sheepshead Bay and a 250 percent increase in killings in Washington Heights are all troublesome statistics that have Mayor Michael Bloomberg and police officials concerned.

�We worry every day about trying to make this city safer,� Mayor Bloomberg said Monday.
To all of those still living in urban areas, keep your bug-out bag stocked and buy plenty of ammo -- the next few years are going to be interesting regardless of who gets into office...
