Well, and Police Superintendent Brown will be the scapegoat for the horrible crime numbers in Chicago.
So Chicago had a bad weekend. After 110 Shot In Chicago, The Top Cop Blames Gangs, Guns, Drugs And ‘Not Enough Time Spent In Jail’. And actually, Brown doesn’t blame guns, which is why Chicago will fire him. Differences of opinion are NOT allowed!
During his news conference, Brown also rejected a notion popular with University of Chicago criminologists who work closely with the police department. He said the violence cannot be blamed on easy access to guns.
“I’m from Texas,” Brown said, noting that state’s high number of firearms. “Houston, San Antonio and Dallas have lower murder rates.”
The guns don’t exert mind control. They don’t act of their own accord. People have to pick them up and act, and those people are responsible. But that is not cannon in the City of Chicago.
