National Issue Comes to Chicago

As a rule, we don't do social media. However, AceofSpades blog has an extensive Twitter conversation that demonstrates the damage the previous Administration has done (and continues to do) to the nation, specifically Washington DC. We've condensed it for space considerations, but you can read the whole thing at the link up top:
  • Boy oh boy. Remember we said that after Obama left office, we'd find out the damage he did? Under Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, the Department of Justice pushed the states to pass new laws. The goal was to make it impossible to hold repeat offenders in jail before trial. Why? Because so many repeat offenders are black.

    The first step was to reclassify violent felonies as nonviolent misdemeanors. Look at California. Assault with a deadly weapon, harming a crime victim or witness, resisting arrest that injures a police officer...Violent elder or child abuse, arson with injury, and manslaughter are now nonviolent felonies. Proposition 47--passed in 2014--reclassified certain "nonviolent felonies" as misdemeanors. Therefore prisoners convicted of violent elder abuse were released because now their former violent felony was a misdemeanor.

    So the Democrats first changed violent felonies to misdemeanors. Then they changed the laws for bail. Washington DC Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier resigned because criminals were being arrested, released, and arrested again the same day. Federal authorities decide who stays in jail in DC. Under pressure from Holder and Lynch, they were releasing everyone.
We don't know what you think, but that last paragraph seems to be EXACTLY what Kim Foxxx is doing by downgrading every felony she can, EXACTLY what Dart is doing emptying the jail and EXACTLY what Evans is doing by reducing/eliminating bail for supposedly "non violent" offenders. By the way, our respect for Lanier went up a notch for resigning when her Department was hamstrung by the DOJ - she cites nearly every criticism we've made the past few years. (EDIT - She's still a gun grabbing leftist tool):
  • The crime rate spiked dramatically. The Democrats are pushing for "community rehabilitation programs" instead of prison. The most repulsive member of congress--@tedlieu, the guy who trolls Trump--has introduced a doozy of a bill. Lieu wants to ELIMINATE bail in the entire country. They point to the "success" of New Jersey, which eliminated bail earlier this year. In New Jersey, a person is evaluated with an eight-question form. Prior offenses are not taken into consideration. As a result almost nobody is held over until trial. Almost everyone is released. The state had to hire new staff and create new computer systems to manage the new system. Releasing everybody has so far cost New Jersey $400 million, and the crime rate is skyrocketing.

    Washington DC eliminated bail, and now the city pays $50 million a year to oversee almost no prisoners. Duane and Beth Chapman--He's better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter--testified in Sacramento about the new laws coming. The Chapmans pointed out every loophole they could: a guy who never shows up for trial, for example. They said that the Democrats then TWEAKED the laws to EXCLUDE any possible offender. The DC Police arrested a total of 219 violent protestors on Inauguration Day. Only 17 showed up for their trials. The Chapmans said that the Democratic party has made it a priority in 2017 to pass laws that make holding anyone in jail impossible.

    What I realized a long time ago is that Democrats' sole motivation is to piss off conservatives. So I'm not surprised that one of our two major parties now wants us to die at the hands of violent criminals. The end result of Democratic "reform" is that criminals now commit crimes with impunity, and people are too afraid to call the cops. There are no penalties for threatening witnesses and skipping your trial. Nobody comes looking for you. And if you get arrested, they immediately release you. You may have heard that more an more celebrities are having their mansions broken into. Alanis Morissette was robbed of $2 million worth of jewelry. This is a new crime, being committed by old gangs such and the Bloods and Crips. It's because there are no penalties. This is just one of the things Obama did to us. And the CURRENT Democrats want to make it even worse. The end.
The damage wrought by Obummer and his half-assed "social engineering" will be felt by generations of cops and victims.

Thank you for linking this.

Here I thought it was the localized Crook County stupidity and corruption of Kimmie Foxxx?
I Should have realized something this dunderheaded requires highly educated idiots to create so destructive.

We tried this in the 1960's, didn't we? Remember how that worked out?

One big difference from the crime ridden 1960's and 1970's, ordinary citizens can defend ourselves. Tell your family, tell your friends, tell your neighbors! Get a FOID, Get a Permit, Practice, practice, practice!
Carry Everywhere!

The "Legacy" of Obama transcends that visual abomination that will be built in his honor on the Southside. Obama was clearly a troubled and angry man; if you doubt that statement read "Dreams of My Father". Torn between his self hatred over the reality that half of him was White, Obama over emphasized his Black Half. And he took to D.C. and the nation, the corruption of Cook County, which is that Everything in government must be seen through the prism of Race and Politics. The release of countless hardcore, unrepentant criminals into society is based upon Politics and Race, especially since the vast majority of these criminals will be Underclass Whites and People of Color. A double win for Democrats, because it enhances their image in the two aforementioned constituencies! Remember, the Obama DOJ pushed hard to reinstate the right to vote for convicted felons. Meanwhile victims will be forced to be more dependent upon government to protect them from the criminals government has unleashed upon them. And both Daley II and Rahm are part of this warped mindset, both disciples of the Chocolate Messiah. Baby "G"

This story is a primary example on why a citizen should conceal carry at all times and why the national concealed carry legislation is so important. You are responsible for your own protection. The politicians do not give a f... about middle class working Americans. They are just sheep to be continually taxed in order to support their liberal causes.

It used to be that felons lost their right to vote with their conviction. Or was I misinformed... again......
guess that there is no incentive to NOT be a criminal?

Totally wrong. Their motivation is much bigger and much darker. They want to hurt the respectable middle class as much as they possibly can. They want to weaken communities, notions of safety, respect for the police and the law.

A frightened and unsafe middle class is ripe for the picking

That's why I tell anyone who will listen, get a concealed to carry, arm yourself and protect your property and loved ones. Learn the law and deadly force from someone in the know, practice and become proficient with your choice of firearm. If you are forced to exercise the use of force, try not to wound the offender. You want to be the only one with the narrative, total control of the message. I try to practice what I preach, all three of my adult children are concealed carry and have been schooled in the use of their weapons, and deadly force. The new legislation letting criminals to run free and the lack of punishment associated with this legislation, does not prevent we the people to exercise our right to defend ourselves from their lack of common sense.

As for the Hollywierd libtards getting their homes broken into by street gangs, guess that no gun stance is not so smart a move.

Pop a few and it will stop. Don't call LAPD afterwards. Have your landscaper take care of it. Or if you know someone with a boat.

It wasn't just Sparklefarts, the racist Eric Holder, and Loretta 'Poop for brains' Lynch who wanted to empty jails and prisons and free their Homies, and prevent them from getting convicted in the first place. But also 'moderate republicans', aka RINOs, who swallowed the bullshit of Sentencing Reform and passed, The Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act (S. 2123), back in 2015.

But worse, the RINOs bought into the Democrat's insane idea of applying 'Disparate Impact' in Criminal Law. That's when an existing 'neutral' Law or Regulation is determined to be prejudiced (racist) against a protected group (Blacks), solely because they are affected by it (arrested) more than the majority population (White people).

Disparate Impact was originally intended to apply only to Fair Housing Laws and HUD. But like the gutter dwellers they are, democrats saw the benefit of getting it applied to other areas, like Criminal Laws and the Justice System.

This is why you see the usual suspects using overall population stats in comparing crimes committed by the races, and the laws are racist because more blacks get arrested than whites. The existing laws have a Disparate Impact on Blacks.

Restorative Justice is what them Democrats are labeling it.
This is not a new concept.
Reshaping laws that bastardize the compiled statutes to fit a movement narrative, is.
There is now a set of laws, ordinances, codes reserved and based on race identity.
This was the start of how the USA was fundamentally changed under the flunky trio of obama-holder-lynch.
So much was riding on a Hillary victory to continue the downside of America.
Now they have nothing but an obstruction and resistance theme.

Stay Fetal, a ghetto Arrest or Stop is just a invitation to problems.
Argue all you want about being the Police, being ethical, being active, being a hard charger, doing your job and even fearing your life.
See if that nugget passes the standard of the community COPA panel.

Told Ya So!

The "Salt Of The Earth" old folks
have been deriding Barack Obama as
the classic "Educated Fool" whose
mother was a nutter who was on the
outs with her family and his "father"
may not have been the actual sperm

In other words?

An afflicted/conflicted child who
grew up to take out his animus against
the rest of everybody else because of
the bitter taste of his circumstances.

No wonder He and Rahm had the kind of
love/hate/kindred troubled souls/on/off
conflicted/unconsummated relationship...

They're two of a kind.

Though Rahm feels a certain way because
Barack didn't thickly slather all kinds of
federal largesse upon Chicago like so many
political, corporate and catered-to community
buccaneers were hoping.

And as for the catered-to community?

Once they realized that no plane-loads of
federal cash were going to roll across the
tarmac to great pomp and pageantry, that's
when they started flapping their dick-beaters
about "defun' da Poleece an' gib dey money to us!"


The big reveal on Obama's real feel
is going to come out sooner than later.

You all will find out how deep his
hatred of American Society/regular
work-a-day, trying to peacefully go
about their business people really runs.

So many slips and unintended reveals
sprinkled throughout his unfortunate
terms in office.

Fox got elected, this pretty much tells you how the citizens of Cook County are going to vote. Unfortunately it's on racial lines and people are not informed or they are misinformed on what's really going on. This is one of the reasons the Second Amendment was enacted. Everybody who is eligible should get a CCP take training and be prepared to defend yourself or others if necessary. Thank God we live in a country that allows us to defend ourselves. Defend that Right.

The Democratic Party USED TO BE THE PARTY OF THE PEOPLE. Now the party has become the Party of the Criminal. Thank God that HRC did not get elected. What party now will not accept the outcome of the election? What party has now become the party of disregarding our nations motto of "We are a nation of Laws". If the public thinks Chicago is bad now wait until little Kimmy has been in Office for several years. And please let us not forget who is really in Charge of this? Cook County Board President Tony Preckwinkle. big Tony is a big of a Hyde Park Liberal that you ever seen. Wait it is going to get bad. Just think, blacks will vote for these people over and over again. What do they get: Crime Crime and more Crime

Are your judges crazy?? A civil society only exists when the majority of citizens voluntarily obey the laws and social norms, and the violent ones that do not are removed. Chicago already has a sizeable group that does not conduct themselves in a civil manner and that percentage of the population seems to be growing.

The police are the thin blue line that keeps the criminals at bay and allows a society to function. By releasing violent offenders or not having them post bail it is literally turning the wolves loose on the sheep. Cook County and Chicago are marginalizing the good work law enforcement tries to do and is in turn sending the wrong message.

Chicago and Cook County is circling the drain and will soon reach the point of no return. Hang on for the ride--it will not be pleasant. Enjoyed growing up in Chicago and glad I am gone. Ex Marquette Park person.

I love your blog because I like to know the facts and I understand that Chicago has a "narrative" around crime and violence that is at odds with the facts. You guys are obviously smart guys (or women) fulfilling a real need. However, I think you should knock off the name calling like for example, "Obummer." It's juvenile, as equally as juvenile as people who call Trump "Orange Cheeto" or his supporters "Trumpanzees." You have a serious and needed message you are delivering through your blog, usually in an interesting or witty manner, but I think you undermine it with the name calling. If you have an issue or something to say about President Obama or the former administration's policies, then support those positions with facts, not name calling. Do you encourage your children (if you have any) to call people names simply because they disagree with them?
