CPD Catches Blame for Burbs
- There was a volatile protest at City Hall Thursday morning over alleged police brutality.
Demonstrators stood outside the mayor’s office to protest police brutality, though most of the alleged cases they cited happened in the suburbs [...].
“What do we have to do for justice? Why do we have to march for justice? Why do we have to get angry for justice? Do we have to riot? Do we have to tear things down?” Aaron Watts said.
Please Aaron, please tear things down. That seems to be all you and your ilk are good at anyway. Destroy, kill, maim, pillage and then blame everybody but the face in the mirror.
And of course, when some reporter actually asks an intelligent question, pointing out the obvious, he gets attacked for it:
The black community, they said, is under siege by violent officers.
But every weekend in Chicago, there are multiple shootings in African American neighborhoods, and most of the gunmen are not the police. So, [CBS 2 reporter Jim] Williams asked this question: “What is a greater threat to the black community, criminals and gang members on the street or Chicago police officers?”
That sparked an angry and emotional response from one of the news conference participants, who called it a “stupid” question.
"under siege"? Last we checked, Cook County Jail had closed at least one wing, maybe two because of a lack of prisoners. Suburban courts shut down their off-business hours because there isn't any backlog any more and Dart still hasn't had to reopen the closed portions of 26th Street. Murders are up and arrest numbers are plummeting across the city and they think they're "under siege?"
But don't worry - the NAACP has an answer:
David Lowery of the NAACP tried to answer it and said, “It’s not a stupid question.”
“The greater damage to the community is black officers and white officers who continue to kill our children because they have the position of power,” he said.
Maybe Eric Holder can take a break from running a few thousand guns into Mexico and come tell us how Americans are cowards when it comes to discussions about race. Then we can tell him that it doesn't really help matters when one of the parties in the discussion is bat-shit crazy insane.
