He gets beaten to within an inch of his life, goes to jail.
When she cried for help, she recalled, neighbors came. “They all came out to help me,” she said. The suspect ran across the street but was caught by the neighbors, who pummeled him.
“They caught him and I said, ‘oh, you going to jail today. You definitely going to jail, yes you are,’” the grandmother said.
“And they said it’s a wonder he wasn’t dead,” she declared. “On 22nd Street? He must didn’t know where he was. Nobody has seen this boy before.”DW
The attempted carjack happened in the Southeast neighborhood of Washington, DC, a neighborhood that is almost 80% black. If Washington DC were a state, it would have the second highest rate of carjackings of all US states. Colorado has the most. California is third.
Why Do Black Teens Carjack, Sometimes Killing Victim?
Many of these young criminals will tell you that it’s all a game to them. It’s the thrill and the power over other people.
The part that has researchers worried isn’t just the increase in violent carjackings but the age of the alleged criminals. Kids as young as 11-years-old have been arrested.
“They are children,” Robert J. Contee III, chief of Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department, said at a news conference in early February about a carjacking task force formed with the police in a neighboring county.Source
The video game Grand Theft Auto is popular among poorly supervised kids as young as four or five. Playing the game can make kids feel invincible, the more people they kill. This sense of invincibility can accompany immature kids when they graduate to real world crimes, which happens much sooner for some than others.
Bad behavior by children is not just seen on the streets, of course. It is seen everyday in the classrooms and hallways of government schools.
Harry Tupuola quit his job as a security guard at Marina in September. He and other current and former staffers say students are allowed to roam the halls without attending class.
“They pretty much control the school and can do whatever they want,” he said. “They don’t want to expel the kids because it looks bad for the admins. They try to transfer them or get them in special ed — you know, brush them under the rug and just try to deal with them til the rest of the year when they graduate, so they (the administrators) don’t have blemishes on their school record.”
“Many students in my class work hard and want to get an education,” said a teacher, who insisted on anonymity. “They want me to stop the kids who are constantly disrupting class, but I can’t. . . . We aren’t preventing those kids from going to prison; we’re just repeating the cycle of poverty and violence in a different way.”San Francisco Schools Worse than Ukraine
When these violent “students” graduate, the ones that don’t land on the streets sometimes go on to schools of higher ed where they are offered indoctrination into grievance, often into violent forms of grievance for which they will get paid. Think of it as a dark career choice subsidized by your tax dollars and incorporated into a system of training by university faculty and staff.
The next medical doctor you are assigned by your insurance company may have risen through an ideologically linked series of institutions that have nothing to do with education or competence — but everything to do with grievance entitlement and social promotion.
There are very good reasons why blacks commit violent crimes at higher rates and tend to underachieve in schools while misbehaving in violent ways. Blacks commit more crimes proportionately and occupy more prison and jail space, proportionately.
75% of black children are illegitimate, raised without fathers — often by grandmothers when the birth mothers are otherwise occupied. It is often not a good start in life, especially if it is taking place in the inner city. If the child is exceptional with a high IQ, and performs well in school, he will probably be persecuted by other blacks for being “too white.”
Being raised in a bad environment tends to accentuate any genetic problems that black children are born with — particularly those that lead to antisocial behaviors and that limit executive functions and IQ.
It is bad enough to have a below-average IQ, but if one’s genetics also predispose him to violent and impulsive behaviors, the long range life trajectory can begin to look very grim.
In the US, a “woke ideology” in high government places is leading to the rapid decay of once-beautiful cities.
“I don’t think we’ve ever seen anything like this where federal election level money and resources are brought to bear and coordinated to effectively flip local level races where campaign finance restrictions make it almost impossible to counter,” said Anderson, adding that conservative opponents are hamstrung by local campaign finance laws that Soros doesn’t have to abide by because he is using independent expenditures and not directly coordinating with the campaigns.
Critics say the policies of Soros-funded DAs, which have included abolishing bail and, in the case of Chicago, placing hundreds of violent criminals on electronic tracking systems, have led to a spike in crime throughout the country. According to the FBI’s annual Uniform Crime Report released in September, the country saw a 30 percent increase in homicides in 2020 — the largest single-year spike since they began recording crime statistics 60 years ago. The report also saw a 24 percent decrease in arrests across the country.
This year, Philadelphia, a city of 1.5 million, had more homicides than New York and Los Angeles, the country’s two largest cities. The city recorded 521 homicides — the highest since 1990 — compared to 443 in New York and 352 in Los Angeles. Chicago, the country’s third largest city, registered the highest number of homicides at 739, up three percent from the previous year. An Engineered Decline
There is not much a city or state can do about dysfunctional demographics other than mitigation. But when governmental institutions are taken over by ideologues who intentionally make conditions worse for those they are claiming to help, it is up to voters to reverse the decline as quickly as possible. If the voting population of the jurisdiction is incapable for whatever reason of understanding the problem, then the decline may be irreversible.
Urban Decay via Wikipedia
Urban decay (also known as urban rot, urban death or urban blight) is the sociological process by which a previously functioning city, or part of a city, falls into disrepair and decrepitude. There is no single process that leads to urban decay which is why it can be hard to encapsulate its magnitude.
Urban decay can include the following aspects:
- Depopulation or overpopulation
- Economic Restructuring
- Abandoned buildings or infrastructure
- High local unemployment
- Increased poverty
- Fragmented families
- Low overall living standards or quality of life
- Political disenfranchisement
- Crime (e.g., gang activity, corruption, and drug-related crime)
- Large and/or less regulated populations of urban wildlife (e.g., abandoned pets, feral animals, and semi-feral animals)
- Elevated levels of pollution (e.g., air pollution, noise pollution, water pollution, and light pollution)
- Desolate cityscape known as greyfield land or urban prairie
Since the 1970s and 1980s, urban decay has been a phenomenon associated with some Western cities, especially in North America and parts of Europe. Cities have experienced population flights to the suburbs and exurb commuter towns; often in the form of white flight. Another characteristic of urban decay is blight – the visual, psychological, and physical effects of living among empty lots, buildings, and condemned houses.
Urban decay has no single cause. It results from combinations of inter-related socio-economic conditions, including the city’s urban planning decisions, the poverty of the local populace, the construction of freeways and railroad lines that bypass or run through the area, depopulation by suburbanization of peripheral lands, real estate neighborhood redlining, and immigration restrictions.
What we are seeing is the wholesale destruction of quality of life based partly on dysgenic population trends, partly on corruption, and partly on ideological incompetence and sabotage in high places. It is not uncommon for the three trends to work together.
Violent carjackings by black teens is one troubling element of urban decay. But there are many others that should trouble us. It is not enough just to move away from the problem, or to blame much of the decay on political opponents — as justified as the blame may be.
An abundant and expansive human future will require more than avoidance of problems and placing much of the blame where it obviously lies. It will require ingenious and peaceful action, much of it below the radar.
