Thousands Flee Chicago For Safer Areas Of The Country As America’s Third Largest City Becomes A Gang-Infested Wasteland

By Michael Snyder
Did you know that the number of murders increased by almost 60 percent in the city of Chicago last year?  And as you will see below, this year gang violence in the Windy City has risen to a new level of viciousness.  A staggering 9.5 million people live in the Chicago metropolitan area, and it was once known primarily for great pizza, bitter cold and some of the best sports fans on the entire planet.  But now the number one thing that comes to mind for many when they think about the city of Chicago is gang violence.  As it becomes clear that things are not going to turn around any time soon, thousands of residents are leaving the city for safer areas of the nation.  In fact, Cook County lost more people than any other county in America last year by a very wide margin.
When your murder rate goes up by double digits in a single year, you have got a problem.
But when it goes up by close to 60 percent, you have got a catastrophe on your hands

In 2016, the number of murders in the city jumped nearly 60 percent to over 760, more than New York and Los Angeles combined. There were more than 4,300 shooting victims in the city last year, according to police.

Of course we aren’t supposed to talk about the fact that this is quietly happening in communities all over America.  This is one of the reasons why there is such a disparity in real estate prices these days.  The wealthy are willing to pay a substantial premium to live with other wealthy people in areas that are far away from all the violence.
And the gang violence in Chicago continues to escalate.  For example, check out what happened just yesterday

Two people were killed and eight others were wounded in an attack at the site of a memorial for a man who was slain earlier Sunday in the Brighton Park neighborhood, police said.
Chicago police First Deputy Superintendent Kevin Navarro told reporters at the Southwest Side scene in the 2600 block of West 46th Place that the attack was “another brazen act of gang violence.”
Navarro said the victims, a mix of men and women, were taking part in a memorial for a man, identified by the Cook County medical examiner’s office as Daniel Cardova, who had been killed at that location earlier in the day when two people fired rifles from a nearby alleyway.

Would you want to raise your children in an area where this was going on?
Thanks to decades of open borders and unrestrained illegal immigration, gang membership has been absolutely soaring in major cities such as Chicago.  Five years ago the Chicago Crime Commission estimated that there were 150,000 gang members living in the metropolitan area, and by this point that number is certainly far higher.
According to Wikipedia, there are currently only 12,244 police officers in Chicago.  That means that the police are outnumbered by at least a 12 to 1 margin.
And according to an article published by the Chicago Sun-Times, some of these gangs have agreed to start using automatic weapons against the police…

The meeting took place Thursday between higher-ups from the Vice Lords, Black Disciples and Four Corner Hustlers, according to an alert issued to department members the day after the meeting.
The Four Corner Hustlers “provided guns” and have “a sniper in place” though authorities do not know where, according to the alert. The Four Corner Hustlers also are supplying the other two gangs with automatic weapons, which all three factions also have agreed to use against police, the alert states.

No wonder the police suicide rate in Chicago is 60 percent higher than the national average.
If I was living in the Chicago metropolitan area, I would be making every effort to relocate, and apparently there are lots and lots of people that see things the same way that I do.
In fact, net domestic migration for the Chicago metropolitan area was a staggering -89,000 during 2016…

One particularly stunning figure: net domestic migration, with an estimated 89,000 more people moving from the Chicago area to other portions of the country in the past year than those who moved in.

Liz Schuh, principal policy analyst for the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, said the figures are “of concern for the region’s continued economic success.”

“Residents often choose to stay in or migrate to a region because of economic opportunity and quality of life,” she added.

In particular, wealthy people are living the city in droves.  It has been reported that 3,000 millionaires left the city of Chicago in 2015 alone.  Certainly the ridiculously high taxes are one factor why so many wealthy people are leaving, but of course gang violence is also a major reason for the mass exodus.
If violence in our major cities is starting to spiral out of control while the economy is still relatively stable, what are things going to look like when a complete economic meltdown happens?
It is only a matter of time before widespread rioting, looting and civil unrest becomes commonplace in major cities all over the country.  With Donald Trump in the White House, the deep frustration that has been simmering in our inner cities is now reaching a boiling point.  It certainly isn’t going to take much of a spark to set off a tremendous explosion.
In anticipation of what is coming, large numbers of Americans have already been relocating to less populated portions of the country.  And the good news is that there are lots of areas to pick from.  According to Survival Dan, about half of the U.S. population lives in just 146 counties…

Recent U.S. census data indicates that out of the 3000 counties in the United States, fully 50% of the population lives in just 146. If you want to have any chance of surviving a widespread catastrophic event by avoiding the hordes that will be searching for critical resources in its aftermath, then check out the following map to get a visual reference of the areas you want to stay away from.

Of course it can be quite difficult to find a good job in an area that is not heavily populated, and there are a lot of expenses involved in relocating to a totally different part of the country.
And there is certainly a lot to consider when picking out a new place to live, and so you would want to do a lot of research before making such a move.
But my wife and I did step out in faith and made a decision to relocate to a new area nearly six years ago, and it was one of the best decisions that we have ever made.

  1. I’ll say it again and again…..Rahm is there for a reason. A hub for drugs and gun running? Training center for urban riots(Obammy’s private migrant Muslim army)? Whatever it is, it won’t be good for the average citizen in the US.

      • “Why don’t you move to another fascist country and see how you like it?…”
        Been There, – – – Done That, – – – Like It. (Sadly Nothing is Perfect)

          • In a way, your statement is correct, but I don’t have the time to elaborate.
            You find that not all variations of the scam function equally. Where you
            are most correct is the fact that all industrialized countries cannot function
            now without the creation of huge amounts of money out of nothingness.
            Without a Tsunami of Fantasy Fiat, the light go out, as in Pitch-Black.

      • Pretty obvious who the dumbass is. Have you ever tried thinking beyond your dirty coffee cup? I guess you would rather have Rahm as President. And oh yea, Rahm didn’t “buy his way” into his position with money. More like he was appointed.

          • Are you implying that when Randall talks about “Benjamins”,
            He is talking about his Paychecks in Scheckels,
            With Netanyahu’s Signature??????

          • I don’t quite get it, your comment, (To Randall)
            “he has a Mossad ass. Probably just like yours”
            I ask (Jokingly) if you are implying that Randall takes Mossad
            Paychecks in Israeli Shekels, signed by Benjamin
            I would have to assume your statement “Just Like Yours” to
            Randall would be implying allegiance or employment by
            Israeli Mossad.
            My hair is a little grey, and I am from an earlier generation.
            In my generation using the word F*cker, (such as Randall),
            or your calling me a “Dumb F&ck” would only lead someone
            to believe that the writer had no charachter and was from a
            lower class background. I guess times change, and you’re
            only exhibiting the new, fresh, Modern Eloquence.
            I am probably exhibiting my lack of understanding for the
            English Language directly under the nose of an up and coming,
            Modern Master, comparable to a Samuel Clemens.

  2. And where are the “hustlers” getting their full automatic weapons? Look to Mexico! No doubt the “hustlers” are buying these weapons from the famously corrupt Mexican Army but, of course, local gun dealers will be accused of selling them. We can only hope that these gang snipers start to shoot local politicians…..then we’ll see some action.

  3. IT GETS WORSE ! NOBODY wants this cowardly TRASH in their towns either!
    These Chicago REFUGEES are worse than the GANGS of THUGS, they behave like they where in CHICAGO and DESTROY every town by their INDIFFERENCE just like they DID to their TOWN! STAY HOME you scum and MAKE CHICAGO GREAT for a FIRST TIME!
    How are all those aliens doing in YOUR JOBS?
    These REFUGEES are all over the state of Missouri, and they are HATED, unfriendly, arrogant filthy mouthed and BAD neighbors. VOICE of experience.

  4. Why don’t the good folks of Chicago DEMAND that their wacko mayor Rahm stop the sanctuary city crap and become a real city once again? Oh pardon me….. the libturds are run by the Mexican Cartels these days and that would definitely put a serious dent in their drug business if that were to happen.

  5. oh great… they are spreading their infection to nearby states….just like the californacation of oregon, washington, and arizona.

    • It was so many years ago,
      But I will never forget our Disgust with the Califonians
      That moved up to Washington State.
      Maybe it would be best to turn Sanctuary Cities into
      Quarantine Cities..
