  1. They have less job opportunities because every time a shop opens someone's there to rob them. Why do you think all the shops end 10 miles away from the ghetto?

  2. I read a book in my university days called "Gang Leader for a Day: A Rogue Sociologist Takes to the Streets" written by Sudhir Venkatesh.

    ever since I don't believe a shit on what I hear from mainstream media about life in Chicago.
    Great piece Jim… 🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

  3. Can we talk about how you edited Avi's interview by cutting answers from one question into another? Or how you drew Mohammed and called Islam stupid and the Burqa demeaning, and then edited it out because "you never look bad in these interviews"?

  4. You're really fucked Jim. I would say mate but I'm not Australian and neither are you. Also, that's a term of endearment fuckface, you deserve nothing but shit until you man up which will be never. Enjoy being the fatter, unfunny, Male version of Amy Schumer.

  5. Alcohol and socks? That ain't shiet. In GA we gotta shop called the "drug and gun." Its a one stop shop. If the meds don't work, you've got a second option.

  6. I grew up ion D.C. ill be the first to say that gangs, regardless of what you see on MTV, gang heads helped the communities. IN every hood I ever been in, most were held and run by gang leaders who wee just hard community outreach programs. Gangs wasnt bad, but the insitutions that cause gangs to be relevant is the problem. I remember the neighborhood I grew up in, took our basketball courts away because of suspected gang activity, when in realty the gangs showed up afterwards lol crazy.

  7. If you’re going to do a piece on the South Side of Chicago and mention baseball and provide video of a team, YOU DON’T SHOW THE MOTHER FUCKIN’ CUBS!! South Side = White Sox, fuck the “Cubbies”!!!!!!

  8. I like how all these fucks are still talking about that dickbag avi even though this skit isn’t even remotely related

  9. Chicago,L.A,NY have strict as fuck gun laws and highest rates of gang shooting and have been demacrat areas for decades. Jim jeferies is a hack (APOLOGISE TO AVI)

  10. In my country they say its understandable if you rob or murder someone because lack of opportunity and poverty as well

  11. Fake trash. Jim is a mouth piece for views he doesn’t believe. He’s a racist – on tape, bigot – on tape, and liar – on tape. Take this clown off the air

  12. Wonder how the best street drugs & street drug prices stay so low in Chicago. All these high power guns given to the gangs?

  13. Hey Jim you unfunny pretend drunk, when are you going to talk about the Avi thing????? Comedy Central I think you better phone the FBI on everyone here for hate speech haha Like all these other hundreds maybe thousands of people feeling the same way I will never watch anything produced by CC again.

  14. Person: Watches comedian do remotes with interviews taken out of context, to increase comedic value.
    Same Person: Gets mad when they find out interviews were edited to be contextually incorrect to increase comedic value.

  15. Jim, please just admit to the world that you are not funny any more and
    you are just a PoS. It is the editors who hack up your interviews who
    are funny. You are just a stooge. A rich stooge I'll admit. But, then
    again, nobody calls me a PoS as I'm walking down the street. And don't
    forget everyone…Comedy Central is owned by Viacom which has the same
    parent company as CBS. @t

  19. If the South Side was predominantly white, it would be a fat ass fentanyl shithole where people would only have energy to shoot themselves. At least blacks aren’t cowardice enough to commit suicide like white folks.

  20. I don't know why, but the black American hoods is realy interesting. Like an urban modern wild west. Drama, culture, guns, gangs, cool outfits, cool music, cool way of talking, a lot of cool things.

  21. Did you eventually give in and decide to tell the truth about Avi? Come on Jim, you talk hard on your show but dont have the balls to say and admit you're wrong. Step up and be a man dont hide behind the media.

  22. I GOT A GREAT IDEA. LET'S SEND ALL THE CHICAGO GUN FIGHTERS TO THE MEXICAN BORDER AND PAY THEM TO SHOOT THE INVADERS.

  23. Strict Gun laws lead to more gun violence. Chicago needs to elect a conservative Mayor who believe's in the Second Amendment.

  24. What was said about the gang leaders keeping the kids in line makes sense. Look at the history of organized crime. As long as someone was in charge there wasn't chaos. There was still crime, but they had rules.

  25. Wow conservatives are really struggling to stay relevant. A fucking comedian who never once says he is apolitical talks about the violence in south chicago and these conservatives get all butthurt that he's calling out right-wing media's propaganda, and what's even funnier is that they also think that he's editing the video to be taken out of context. lmao like what.
    No wonder conservatism is dying in America.

  26. They always bring up Chicago because they like to say gun control doesn't work. They never bring up New Orleans, which has triple the homicide rate of Chicago because NO has lax gun laws.

  27. Well ! The divide is clear !…….when you got money and shit …..you do not want gun violence or at least not by rouge and unstable elements of society !
    But on the other hand ……when you got nothing to lose or do not have money and shit …..who gives a fuck ! Just shoot them all anyway because apparently they look more happier and enjoying their filthy rich life !

  28. did anybody see how uncomfortable he was… that was so funny, may have felt better if he was armed…

  29. Here's the truth if you're not from this country don't debate our Second Amendment what works for some may not work for others God Bless America

  30. Chi town needs the jobs the great pumpkin says he created, what happened to them??? I bet cash money that if those young men could get a decent job to support themselves they wouldn't turn to crime to get it.

  31. I wonder all the "south-" regions are comparitively bad or conservative in USA.
    In India, "South-" is always the good ones. South India. South Mumbai. South Delhi.

  32. If Chicago has highest number of guns, why does Fox, Republicans and NRA hates Chicago?
    They should make it their Trade Capital.

  33. Jim jokingly suggests a longer school day would be a good way to keep kids safe and off the streets. The reality is that it not only does that but much more. Criminality in urban settings corresponds positively to financial inequality. More than not, many of these households are single-mother low education. Meaning, that there's one earner supporting stistically more children on a low skilled wage. To bring in a decent amount, they would need to and often do work multiple jobs. After school programs, in addition to keeping kids off the streets, introduce them to new things, isolate them from violence and give parents the opportunity to work longer hours to bring in more money. They have been shown to work quite well actually.

  34. i almost died when jeffries said people love shitting on chicago because in italian the words "ci cago" (pronounced in almost the same exact way as the name of the city)literally mean:"i shit in it"

  35. Yeaa More Programs that's gota be the answer!!!!!!! Hell no just get rid of ALL forms of welfare and put all those wannabe gangsters to WORK!!!! Yea WORK!!!
    WORK and RESPONSIBILITY!!! That's the answer.
