US murders concentrated in 5% of counties. Highest legal gun ownership = lowest murder rate. Uh oh…..

The Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) said in a new report that there is a “geographical concentration” of murders, with 68 percent of killings occurring in just 5 percent of the nation’s counties. The homicides also tend to be concentrated to relatively small pockets of those counties, the report said.

“It is stunning how concentrated murders are in the U.S.,” John Lott, president of the CPRC said to Fox News. “And we show that even within these counties, with all these high rates, murders are very concentrated.” These high [rate] counties have very large areas where there are no murders.”

Looking at the historical data, the CPRC said that murders were even more geographically concentrated in decades past. On average, 73 percent of counties in any given year had zero murders from 1977 to 2000. Take for example Los Angeles County, which had 526 murders in 2014 — the most of any other county in the U.S. But parts of L.A. County, including Beverly Hills, Hawthorne and Van Nuys, had virtually no murders that year.Indianapolis, Indiana had 135 murders but only four occurred outside of the 465 highway loop that encircles the downtown area. Washington, D.C. has large swaths without a single recorded murder. The study found that murders were overwhelmingly limited to the eastern half of Washington, D.C.

 

One of the most interesting findings in the report is that areas with the highest gun ownership rates have low murder rates.

There, I got through an entire blog post without making my own comments, until this sentence, since it’s interesting stuff on it’s own though except for the previous sentence it’s hard to conclude what it all means (though it is probably no surprise where most murders are concentrated).

ISIS magazine has advice for the bored suburban terrorist wannabe.

Variations of this article appeared in International Business Times, the Daily Mail (U.K.), and other publications. I am both quoting and paraphrasing.

The magazine is called Rumiyah, and is published in 10 languages, making it an equal opportunity shithead attractor. In addition to tutorials on vehicle, knife and arson attacks, they get really creative about how to find victims, urging ISIS followers to use sales websites like Craigslist and eBay to lure unsuspecting victims to their homes before taking them hostage and killing them. The magazine offers a guide on how to select a target and, “lure him to an appropriate location before attacking, subduing, binding and then slaughtering them”.

“The terrorists say their operatives should use: ‘The language of force, the language of killing, stabbing and slitting throats, chopping off heads, flattening them under trucks, and burning them alive, until they give the jizyah [tax] while they are in a state of humiliation.’ The magazine suggests potential targets where hostages could be taken including malls, movie theatres, night clubs, ice-skating rinks, restaurants and college campuses.

“The article continues: ‘It is essential to have a suitable weapon for one’s operation, i.e. a strong, sharp knife, and possibly a bat or a small club that one may use to subdue the victim by striking them over the head before slaugh­tering them.’

“Islamic State has urged lone jihadists to arm themselves with weapons to carry out a ‘campaign of knife attacks’ in quiet neighbourhoods. In the propaganda magazine, ISIS urged would-be jihadists to ‘overcome their squeamishness’ which it said was ‘never an excuse for abandoning jihad’. The terror group made the call in the second edition of magazine Rumiyah, meaning Rome, which was issued by the organisation’s Al-Hayat Media Centre.

According to PJ Media, the article urges would-be jihadists to launch their assaults at night time on random victims in alleys, beaches, forests, and ‘quiet neighbourhoods’, and aim for a ‘reasonable kill count’.”

As much as I like to air my opinions, I will sit this one out. What could I say to condemn this vermin more than their own words? However, the New York Post has one example of a family that took the message of ISIS to heart. In a May 7, 2017 story, they give these idiots their 15 minutes of infamy.

“A British punk rocker-turned-jihadi bride is quickly moving up the charts — of the Pentagon’s terrorist kill list, according to a report. Sally Jones has recently become a ‘high priority’ on the ‘kill list’ of wanted terrorists, the Sunday Times of London reported. Jones, 49, has been implicated in two horrific, but foiled, plots to spill the blood of innocent Americans.

“The first was an attempt to livestream the murder of a US veteran; the second was a plotted mass shooting at a North Carolina concert, the British newspaper reported. Jones also is believed to have joined in a failed plot targeting Queen Elizabeth in 2015, during V-J Day celebrations in London.

“Now Jones, originally from Kent in southeast England, is believed to be in Iraq or Syria, where she hopes to avoid the fate of her late ISIS hubby. The husband, Junaid Hussain, a computer hacker from Birmingham, England, was killed by a US drone in the then-ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, Syria, in 2015. Jones and Hussain were celebrities in the ISIS world, with her recruiting women and him ranking high in the caliphate’s technology operations through CyberCalipha.

“Before devoting herself to dark, bloodthirsty ISIS masters, Jones was a guitarist in an all-girl rock band, Krunch. The mother of two might have already poisoned the minds of her two children with sick hatred. Shocking video emerged in August last year of children executing captured Kurds. One of the pint-size terrorists was a young light-skinned boy, who British anti-terrorism cops believe is Jones’ 11-year-old son, who now goes by the name Umm Hussain Britaniyah. Jones now goes by the name of Sakinah Hussain.”

Well, off I go, it’s almost time for lunch. I worked up an appetite thinking about Mr. Husain enjoying the hospitality of Satan. May his bride join him soon!
