Interesting

  • Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson again called for tougher gun laws. “Enough is enough,” he said.

    Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner proposed sending state troopers to Chicago. Without being specific, President Donald Trump suggested sending in the feds.

    Tracy Cannon – once associated with the Vice Lords – says it won’t matter. “I don’t care how many police they bring in. It’s not going to stop, man.”

    Guys on the street say law enforcement made a bad situation worse. “They locked up these gang chiefs and everything went haywire,” says Charles Winters. Large organizations like the Gangster Disciples and Vice Lords subdivided over unresolved disputes. Absent leadership, cliques within the same gang will often do battle. “Ain’t like it used to be,” says Cannon. “Back then we had structure. Older guys would make us go to school. Even though we was gang banging, we would still go to school.”
And we'll bet the cops reading here know exactly where the problem lies - cops have only been saying it now for 40 or 50 years:
  • “We more like a family than a gang… brothers,” says Kevin Gentry – associated with the Vice Lords. In the gang, someone was kind to them. Their role models sold drugs, had money, clothes cars and girlfriends. “The gangs have become family for a lot of young men here in Chicago and across the United States. They gravitate toward the guys with charisma. They gravitate toward the guys that might protect them. But they really are not protected out there. Too many people are being killed, it’s a false sense of security,” says Tio Hardiman from Violence Interrupters, a group that attempts to predict and prevent gangland shootings.
Of course, Tio can't even interrupt himself from beating his old lady, and he's one of the "top" people (or folks?) in these "organizations" making excuses for decades of blood.

Ironic that Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart and Illinois State Senator Bill Cunningham keep pushing for early release as everybody else wants stiffer prison sentences.

Anyone else hear that a resident in englewood was doing some outdoor cleaning this warm weekend and was trimming a huge thick bush and found a handgun deep inside of it. U wanna know where it was at?? Right along the path of flight where a Sgt from 007 chased and shot a guy killing him. Sgt said he had a gun but it couldn't be found after the shooting and he was stripped and the media and family have been screaming how he was unarmed. Hmmmmm, maybe the narrative has changed a little bit now since a gun has been recovered right there?????

I wonder if payment was made to the gangs through various "violence interuptors" to retard the shootings. The police overtime could be a smoke screen. We are no longer allowed to be effective.

All of this is nonsense. See how fast ALL this stops when you cut off ALL entitlements to families. Then, Big Mama will come in and start beatin' on these gangbangers for messing up the EBT cards from being valid.

Make a law where any gangbanger commits a crime, all the entitlements get cut off from his immediate family. See how fast the "family Structure" puts everyone on notice.

like he's beating on The Police?

Rahm is silly but he's not stupid.
Nor are his local media lackeys
who do his bidding.

It's actually funny to see the North Shore
tuff-guy talk all around the sheer savagery
and love of death playing out on the streets
of Chicago's West and South sides in his natural
sing-songy falsetto but he sounds off like he has
an actual set when it comes to "What's Wrong"
with CPD.

It's The Policeman who gets his teeth
kicked in by Rahm because he at least has
compelling rules to abide by...

There is only one way to rid gangs from our streets and it's not through job programs, revitalizing neighborhoods, or education. Those are progressive make you feel good programs that only enrich the connected and teachers' union.

Lock the POS up and throw away the keys. and if necessary build more prisons.

Feds in Chicago busting assholes with guns happened many moons ago and was very effective. They would bust pookie for a gun crime, sentence and ship his ass to bumfuck Alabama. Pookies family wouldnt see pookie every month and everyone would be very upset about that especially pookie. The city and feds were very happy with the outcome. This program went by the wayside for some unforseen reason. If the feds were to start this program up gain I'm willing to bet it would result in less crimes being committed while using a firearm. We would probably see an uptick in stabbings and blunt instrument deaths but it would make it much more difficult to do a drive-by stabbing or clubing.

Meh. Yeah, you can try to arrest your way out of this. You probably will even make a dent in it. But as long as drugs are illegal, there will always be ever-blooming crop of shorties popping up to take over the corners left behind by those who were sent to jail. Simply too much money to be made.

If you had no job, no education, no skills, no family, no father figure, what else can you do?

Drug dealing. Its more than just a job; its a way of life. Part of their culture, and sh*t.

They're like cock-roaches. You'll never get rid of them.

I can still remember when the Vice Lords on 16th street would wear their yellow caps or whatever you call them. It was to demonstrate to others that they were the Vice Lords. Where talking late 60's, and again there were older dudes running things and guiding these Youngers to do their dirty work. Gang Crimes, District Tach Teams, and Area Four Task Fore crushed the Vice Lords in about one year. Everyone wearing a yellow tammy was stopped or arrested. The older members had cases put on them for racketeering and set to jail. Presently, all of the law enforcement tools are still here, however, the politicians are lacking the will to execute the proper actions to put an end to gang culture.

This does present the unpleasant truth that Chicago gangs have appeal because they present themselves as a family to young boys, they have charismatic male leaders who have wealth, cars, money, women.

We used to have other institutions in our cities that provided a lot of these things in better ways, better institutions. Our churches used to have groups of men/boy things that weren't homosexual - sports clubs, boy scouts moving right to military.

The US Marines is an appealing alternative to Chicago gangs, except the US Marines don't get to hang out in our cities.

Maybe biker clubs that are monitored not to sell hard drugs. Biker clubs still seem to work well for White youth who lack community.

Governor Rauner sending state troopers to help Chicago? Hahahahaaaha!!! Sorry, ISP is so understaffed it's a wonder they can function at all. They no longer do proactive enforcement, but instead run from call to call, day in and day out. Patrol areas are combined from two into one so that if there is only one trooper available, that patrol area is "fully staffed" whereas before it would leave one patrol area unstaffed. None of what I say is meant to besmirch the ISP in any way, as they are only able to work with what they have. The politicians in Illinois are corrupt, useless assholes who don't give a rats ass about public safety. Hire more CPD and ISP and get both departments back to normal staffing levels.

Newflash to all who subscribe to the "Oh, If They Only Had Jobs, They Wouldn't Sell Dope, Shoot One Another, Steal & Rob" bullshit.
Fact is, most of those neerdowells don't want legit jobs. Think I'm lying to you?
Just ask the next one you lock up. They're pretty straight forward about telling you they chose this (gangsta) life. Shit! A fair number them held legit jobs once. But that whole Get Up, Be Somewhere On Time, and Be Accountable, thing just didn't work for them. So, either directly or indirectly, they got themselves unemployed.
Growing up in da hood,you'd be amazed how many times I heard "Fuck these muthafuckas!" "I'm gone just quit, and live off my unemployment for a while". Not knowing (A) Unemployment checks are half what their working check is. & (B) Unemployment eventually runs out.
And don't even start me of the ones who made the conscious decision to drop out of high school. So they could then, spend more time standing on the block, pitching dope. Instead of just doing it after school.
I don't subscribe to either political party. So my opinions aren't the least bit colored by politics. Nor am I beholding to the pressure to fall in line with cultural agendas.
Nope. I'm just a man who grew up where I did, and observed what I observed. As such, I know what I know.
I couldn't care less if any party or the community approves of my perspective.

All talk-no action and no mention of FoxWrinkle, PrickWrinkle, Chief judge Evans, TurbanDurbin.

Also not to many words or tears from Rahm. Where's his concerns of late? Is he even in town?
The mayor and alderroaches are pushing the narrative about illegal immigrant rights, participating in rallies and speeches,
No concern about community violent crime?

Special Ed is an idiot, what's a gun law without an enforced penalty.
What a fvckin tool. Does he even know what a law is, the time it takes to write one, or even that Illinois already has some of the strictest laws on the books?

Yeah, enough really is enough. 4 decades or more of everry gun control and drug control law anyone can think of, yet here we are, with drugs and guns everywhere, still. THAT is what isn't ever going to end. This law, the one called demand, cannot be repealed, and it cannot be eliminated by force either. Where does the big loot come from? Oh yeah, by increasing the RISK factor which drives up the REWARD factor, all rooted in it being "illegal". the harder yall play guns-n-drugs, the more they organize the community. Drop the hammer of them and they use minors in return.punish the teens as adults and they will turn to using 9 year olds. Then, the gangland murders that were once 20 something, that went to teens turns to single digit aged kids. Gee, where is chicago at now? Oh yeah, single digit aged kids are now open targets. Are we willing to try SOMETHING ELSE YET?

Forget the "prevention" strategy, it is a failure. Guilty until proven innocent will always be a failed strategy. You can't stop the murders from happening, but you can punish harshly those that DO happen, showing the rest of the thugs what happens when they get caught. Prison is something they relish, they wear as a badge. They do not FEAR it, because they feel they are already IN JAIL - the product of welfare warfare that so few are willing to admit.

This is why the staying fetal as some call it will produce good things for us all - especially the cops. Cops will see that the direction politicians took them was actually detrimental for us all, themselves the MOST! Yes, we can arrest and prosecute and penalize our way out of this - so long as the right people are arrests and prosecuted and punished for what are actual crimes - robbery, rape and murder! Pssst- arresting a person for just possessing a gun ISN'T WORKING because there is no victim, there is no crime, there is only exercise of a right (of course so long as that gun is not stolen in the first place). There is no "getting guns off the street" and there never was. Guess what, there is no "getting gangs off the street" either. The right to assemble exists, just like the right to arms exists. It really is time to stop being conned into pointing laws and their enforcement at what is RIGHTS, instead focusing both at actual crimes committed. It is the only way to real success.

Here's an interesting question do they have to let the federal law enforcement officers in?

CPS tells principals not to allow immigration officials in schools without warrant

"To be very clear, CPS does not provide assistance to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the enforcement of federal civil immigration law," the district's message to principals said.

A district spokesman said CPS was not aware of any recent efforts by immigration agents to access schools. But according to Jackson's letter, principals have asked how to handle interactions with ICE officials.

That from breaking news! So your taking billions in federal education dollars doing a poor job educating the children now you can bar law enforcement correct? So that means CPD officers who visit schools should be treated the same way unless they have a warrant!
More insanity from skulls full of mush! What is going to happen when President Trump does what he has said and takes away the over 1.5 billion in federal tax money as the elected violates federal laws, will the elected be arrested and properly charged?

The police are going to be used to help remove the criminals illegals who are here are we heading toward federalization of police departments where in Chicago rahm would be told to "step aside" as we are finally able to bring law and order and safety back to this city full of carnage?

It is true that you guys can not arrest your way out of your crime problem. You would have to arrest every person in Chicago who can not pass the Paper-Bag Test. Where are you going to put millions of POC's? Not to mention that they are all career criminals who will re-offend again and again. Good job security for you all (LEO, DA's, jails, prisons), but a quite depressing and discouraging environment in which to live and work. I would recommend forced deportation for all of your POC's. Then, see how your crime problem decreases, and Chicago becomes habitable again. Just sayin.
