Perhaps you’ve heard that the weekend in Chicago was pretty bad. How Many Mass Shootings?
Chief of Patrol, Fred Waller, said it wasn’t because of Lollapalooza. Those cops were all on their regular days-off. So what did cause the 66 shootings?
How about we attribute it to de-policing? The “ACLU Effect”? ExamScam II and its detrimental effect on morale? Or the upcoming “consent decree” that was created without a single cops voice or opinion? There are four reasons right there.
So, where was Pfleger during all this? Livingston? Jesse? Tio? All these marches sure are driving down the crime numbers, right? A few other questions:
- How many of these shootings were by Concealed Carriers?
- ….by people (or folks) with FOID cards?
- ….by NRA members?
- How many were shot by the Chicago Police Department?
Or does that not fit the narratives being thrown around?
I would add a few names to that litany of “where were they?” But that’s enough to be going on with for now.
And Mayor Rahm Emanuel, is making even less sense than usual.
You know, I never knew that my guns, could get up, jump out of their cases, open the safe and shoot of their own accord. It’s a good thing Rahm Emanuel is here to tell us how the universe works. </sarcasm>
Cook County has been practicing a type of Criminal Justice that continually trades down the severity of the crime tried (or pleaded) and the sentence handed down. They have made it cheaper (because putting criminals in prison is bad) and now they have more of it.
HeyJackass! has the complete and depressing tally.
