90th Out of 90?

Kind of embarrassing, seeing as how Illinois has the strictest gun laws, yet can't be bothered to have the feds prosecute anyone:
  • Wayne LaPierre, the National Rifle Association’s executive vice president and CEO, who appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday morning, asked host David Gregory why the network doesn’t focus on the poor enforcement of federal gun laws in Chicago.

    “I mean, let me give you the real sad thing, though. Let me hold up a mirror right now to the whole national news media and the White House,” the NRA official began. “I just got the track data from Syracuse University on enforcement of federal gun laws. Last time I was here, I brought it from 2011; it just came out from 2012.”

    “Do you know where Chicago ranks in terms of enforcement of the federal gun laws? Out of 90 jurisdictions in the country, they ranked 90th,” Mr. LaPierre continued.

    “Why doesn’t NBC News start with: ‘Shocking news on Chicago. Of all the jurisdictions in the country, Chicago’s dead last on enforcement of the federal gun laws?’” he asked. “Why doesn’t the national press corps, when they’re sitting down there with Jay Carney and the president and the vice president, why don’t they say, ‘Why is Chicago dead last in enforcement of the gun laws against gangs with guns, felons with guns, drug dealers with guns?’”
Well obviously, Obama and Eric Holder don't care about black people. They'd rather ship a few thousand untraceable guns over the border to Mexican drug cartels than enforce federal gun laws in Chicago.

    World-Class baby!

    If we enforced the gun laws it would cut into the city and state budget so badly to jail the felons that we would have to skip either more pension payments or the building of Maggie Daley Memorial park.

    Guess which happens first.

    What puzzles me is how Tiny,Mc535 and the bureau of tourism don't do a thing about it. Remember way back when the huffington post had those 12,000 comments about chicago when it hit 500 homicides all negative. If anyone else was mayor they would shit. Not these guys business as usual.

    SCC just heard 2 things down at HQ you may want to let all your readers know. The little man 91/2 blew his top over the Chicago Mag article regarding the homicide clearance rate. There will be an announcement by Friday for the HCI... Homicide Clearance Initiative. The requirements are 7 contact cards, 1 violence reduction award, and you must beat the XO and SS in a game of CLUE. Compensation will be time +3/4ths, no comp time allowed.

    One other note regarding another topic. Anita Alvarez was overheard saying she can't believe the French guy that was arrested in Philly for sneaking into an airplane cockpit was charged w/ a felony. She said there is NO WAY those charges would stick here because the keys were in the ignition. He should have been charged w/ CTTC (criminal trespass to cockpit)

    Of course Obamy does not care one bit for the black people in the city of Chicago. Never did, never will. Nor does he want to be associated with Chicago in any way. The way Chicago has been run and where it is going would be a black eye for anyone. The blacks of Chicago have been used by Obamy and the democratic party.

    MSNBC and CNN are scared to death of telling the truth.

    The truth is gun laws are not enforced in Chicago same reason why illegal immigration laws are not enforced. Because the people committing the crimes are black and brown. Its far easier to go.after whitey in the suburbs and their assault rifles.

    If they did enforce gun laws already on the books the south and west side ghettos would be empty.

    Whenever these socialists begin spewing their crap, you should look at them as exactly what they are. Communism has killed about 100 million people since the Russian Revolution in 1917. When someone calls themselves a socialist or progressive, the modern code word for socialist/communist, they are stating their agreement for mass murder in the name of their cause.

    You need only give up your rights, liberties and freedom and they, your intellectual elite, will tell you how to live. If you disagree, you're a counter-revolutionary and will be executed. These are sick, dangerous people. They now call themselves democrats. Think about that when you vote.

    The reason the Federal Gun Laws are not enforced because of political corruption in our state. One example the Daley Crime family. 57.8 million for a garage that Mike Daley represented, 6 million snow removal Richard Daley, 55 million Maggie Daley Park and millions we owe for paking metters. They have to look into this corruption.

    Heh...

    Yeah... That sounds plausible.

    This sounds plausible too...

    Federal prosecution of gun crimes by the felonious gang-banging, dope dealing, child-killing members of the armed forces of "The Catered to Constituency" and other assorted really and verifiably bad, evil, super high-performance hard-head m/fers; is fraught with sho' nuff political peril to the yellow-pinky, Trotskyite socialist-democrats actually running the political plantation in Chicago.

    Alderfools, rev'runs and the reliably noisy "community activists" have the real power of those styrofoam heads in the store front windows all around Madison & Pulaski.

    It's also perilous to their Lincoln Park/Gold Coast and North Shore big money corporate contributors & phony charity money launderers, kick-back artistes extraordinaires and the expert, life-long, left-wing grant writing grifters hiding behind ivy walls in academia...

    Of course, the vile and venal picture would be incomplete with out the morally and ethically "flexible" whores of the liking it up the coal chute while doing a back-bend, reeking and leaking local media...

    Heh... Yet the Civil War against The Police will continue with much vigor and energy in spite of the overwhelming evidence that the cannons are pointed the wrong fucking way...

    For some odd reason in their rattling minds, they figure that "breaking" The "out of control" Police will somehow go a long way toward "fixing" the myriad problems at hand.

    Or perhaps they figure that The Police, with their long memories and fighting spirit, will not stand with THEM (image and perception are everything to the shit-asses of the world) when they succeed in breaking things in this city to the least common denominator so that it can be re-booted to whatever they envision it to be?

    Or totally fucking destroy it and move on?

    What. IS. Their end game?

    And, uh, let's ask why we're 90th out of 90.

    Where do the bread-and-butter federal gun cases come from? Your department. Yes, ATF does some reverse stings but for the most part these cases are coming out of the state's attorney's office, which refers them to the feds after you guys seize a gun and the offender is an armed career criminal or otherwise would face a stiffer sentence if prosecuted federally.

    So -- are you the coppers seizing fewer guns and making fewer gun arrests, for whatever reason (I keep hearing that some of you don't want to put yourselves on the line because you aren't treated well enough or you're afraid of picking up a beef, or whatever.) Anybody here got the answer? Because if your department is putting fewer gun cases into the pipeline, there would be fewer cases referred.

    Is it that the USAO guidelines are too stringent? A lot of UUW cases stay UUW even if they are federal section 922 violations. Do some of you think the feds have balked at cases of yours that should have gone federal?

    Anybody know what the stats are for the raw numbers of 922 and ACC prosecutions the Office has done over the past several years?

    Stupid LaPierre the rhetorical idiot is good at throwing the study around but not so good at understanding what might lie beneath it. This isn't about the media, and it isn't about Obama. It's about not enough police. (Or too many chickenshit police, but I've never bought that.) But you don't see old Wayne out there calling for the tax increases it would take to hire and retain the number of cops needed to get the job done. No, read my lips, no new taxes, we'll just sequester everything. Hey, maybe we don't have the money, and this place will just go to hell. Or some parts of it that nobody cares about.

    There may be several reasons why federal prosecutions are so few in Chicago; investigative techniques, interview techniques, etc. are among them.

    What we do here may not fly in federal court, or any court outside of Cook County, for that matter.

    "Never trust a fed" is a phrase frequently seen on this blog.

    It's also possible that the city/CPD brass are generally uncooperative with the feds.

    You know, putting too many black & brown people in jail.

    socialism: Noun

    A political and economic theory of that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated...
    (in Marxist theory) A transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism.

    Now, having said that, look at the 19 billion dollar waste book (federal government waste):

    -- Though NASA has no plans or budget for any manned spaceflights to Mars, the agency spends about $1 million each year on developing "the Mars menu." It's an effort to come up with a variety of food that humans could eat one day on Mars.



    -- A $325,000 grant for the development of "Robosquirrel" - a robotic rodent designed to test the interaction between rattlesnakes and squirrels.



    -- The report spotlights widespread abuse of the food stamp system -- including an exotic dancer who earned more than $85,000 a year in tips, but also collected nearly $1,000 a month in food stamps while spending $9,000 during that time period on "cosmetic enhancements."

    and how about $100,000 to study why lesbians are overweight?

    now, social security, medicare, the VA, and unemployment? keep, but cut....link and section 8, CUT; free cell phones and school lunches, eliminate....and that's for starters

    I do not agree with everything that La Pierre and the NRA stands for but who else is standing up for our rights to defend ourselves from street thugs and an increasingly Communistic, you-have-no-rights, confiscate and spread out your earned wealth government.

    No new taxes, well there are dozens if not hundreds of new taxes coming and not for just the "wealthy". We have the money for all the police we need and for the pensions and the equipment. All we need to do is stop wasting it on the "forever needy" and make them work for a living.

    In reality it is the republicans that started this mess we find ourselves in. The simple truth is that bankers run this country and no one gets to be president without their backing.

    "In 1999, Democrats led by President Bill Clinton and Republicans led by Sen. Phil Gramm joined forces to repeal Glass-Steagall at the behest of the big banks. What happened over the next eight years was an almost exact replay of the Roaring Twenties. Once again, banks originated fraudulent loans and once again they sold them to their customers in the form of securities. The bubble peaked in 2007 and collapsed in 2008. The hard-earned knowledge of 1933 had been lost in the arrogance of 1999."

    This has happened before, it's happen now, and it will happen again.

    Who needs a tax increase to fund more coppers? Totally unnecessary. Just stop the thieving politicians from stealing the tax money or wasting it on a Maggie Daley Park. How many cops could be hired for $55 million bucks? And how about them bike lanes? How many millions of dollars wasted on another stupid, stupid project that no one wants, but will end up lining the pockets of some connected contractor? More potential cops could be hired. In case you don't realize it after reading the above, I'm here to tell you that the mayor of this shithole doesn't want to hire more cops. He hates cops. Isn't it obvious by now? Tax increase my ass!

    I disagree. Social Security and Medicare is funded by working taxpayers with their own money that is deducted from their checks. VA benefits are earned by serving the country in the military, and unemployment insurance is a federal-state program jointly financed through federal and state employer payroll taxes. Everyone is not entitled to these programs. The closest examples of socialist programs are welfare where recipients don't have to do anything to get the benefits, and didn't earn them some way.

    So your argument is with freebeism, giving handouts to the do-nothings of this society. Well, me too, I absolutely hate free rent, free cards that spit money, free food cards, free cell phones and on and on.

    I am on social security now and I guarantee you that what I put in since I was 17 is in no way paying for what I now take out. Same with pensions etc. The funds that pay for these programs will go broke in the not too distant future because they give away much more than they take in. My police pension will give me more than I put in by year 4. After that and I am living off the fat of the land.

    This is 1:34 again. I know of what I speak because I have prosecuted your gun cases federally. I know how the Office does gun cases. And I also said I don't buy in to the theory that you aren't being aggressive enough. Something else is going on. I think it's fewer police, thus fewer ACC cases and a smaller pool from which the feds can select. It's a pretty good theory that nobody here has refuted.

    As for how we'd get more police, I don't have the answers and if you think it can be done without taxes, all of that is fine, but I still don't see big dumb Wayne advocating for any of that, and yes, I think he's a jagoff.

    I'm sorry I offended some of you with my "chickenshit police" remark because I did say I didn't believe in that theory. But you all read this blog, and you all have seen posters say that kind of thing, encouraging others not to be productive, why should you, it's not worth it, etc. Many of you have chided them yourselves.

    Have a good day. BTW I had a great experience with all of the CPD coppers I worked with on my gun and drug cases. Stay safe all of you.

    Aside from the negative, as a PO having worked quite a few of these cases I will say that it is a different animal, and PSN cases are how all UUW by Felon cases should be handled, i.e. 98.5% or so conviction rate, with sentencing ranges in the 15 year + range at 85%, out of state getting to fight with new shitbags at an unfamiliar prison. One other factor for the low number of cases worked by the USA is that they are very busy with our 'political' representatives at virtually ever level of IL government, at any rate hope to see more it is the closest to justice you will see in this sewer.

    The check is in the mail. Really. No, really. Oops, and then along came pension reform. Well, the check was in the mail, really. Just kidding.

    After I retired and the guvment got through with the windfall elimination and figuring all they had to figure my social security payment was calculated to be $292 a month instead of $730.

    That $292 monthly is still better than if they simply gave me my money back. I will get all my money back in less than 5 years. There is no way I could have invested that $17,500 and gotten a return of $292 a month for life with COLA every year. Not unless I had purchased Microsoft or Apple stock in 1980 and let it ride.

    The only true Americans do have red asses, the Native Americans and since by your own admission you are not native to here that means you are an immigrant. Stop listening to Rush, it rots your brain. Social Security was set up because old folks often had nothing in old age. Nothing. So a system was conceived of witholding a small amount of dough to put away so that the old retired folks would at least be eligible for a few bucks to ward off starvation when they could no longer work.

    Like everything else conceived with good intentions the system became subverted along the way and now includes acoholics, drug addicts, nut jobs and pays or tries to pay for much more than originally intended.

    And there is no upper end cutoff for people of means who do not need it. If kept as it was intended, as a simple stipend to help with the food bills for low income seniors, I see no problem with it. People had roughly 7% taken out of their paychecks during their working lifetime.

    But now any alcoholic piece of shit gets a check for a thousand or more a month, same with drug addicts and nut jobs and people who do not need it.

    And then there are the ill informed and poorly informed who spout like a broken tape recorder "socialism, socialism, arghhh, ughhh, ooohhh, socialism, socialism, moron, nincompoop, sig erp blip socialism" without any real idea of what they are talking about.
