    Chicago mayor: Police 'are losing the streets' to major eruptions of violence

    Chicago mayor: Police 'are losing the streets' to major eruptions of violence




    Chicago’s new mayor is taking issue with the city's police department as the city continues to see far more homicides than New York and Los Angeles, as well as major eruptions of other violence.

    “One weekend does not make a trend,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Tuesday, according to Fox 32. “But we've now had a couple weekends where it feels like we are losing the streets.”

    The mayor made the comments while in New York to attend the opening of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative, which is funded by billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg "to equip [mayors] with the tools and expertise to effectively lead complex cities."

    She's got to say something......and then do nothing.......That's the Chicago Democrat way.

    It's what happens in colored neighborhoods when the town leaders make it a crime to be able to defend themselves

    That's what they need. More programs administered by crime-coddling eggheads.

    A lot of inner cities are facing the same thing. I think a big part of it is that cops are not putting themselves in situations where they might have to use their gun, because if they do it can ruin not only their career but their life. One gang is fighting and killing another, yeah that is a call where they want to get there after it is all over.

    It is going to get worse. Less and less qualified people are going into law enforcement, which will mean lower the bar, means more shooting, more cops getting blames and once again the bar will be lowered.

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot will do absolutely nothing to improve the cities crime situation
    James 1:19 says, "Let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath." Being “slow to speak” is the exact opposite to speaking pressingly or with urgency. Practically speaking I believe its all about getting into the habit. Wait before you speak and consider the effects of what you are going to say. Then, if you don’t have anything to say that is constructive or edifying, don’t say anything at all!

    Rules of engagement. When the good guys are required to play by restrictive rules, the bad guys have more freedom to be bad. A few more rules and stupid failures to prosecute, and the mayor will be right, the streets are lost.

    Hell, with a homicide clearance rate under 10%, in Chicago, you can literally get away with murder. The streets are already lost.

    If you draw a graph of black population with violent crime you will get a perfect correlation ... but that would be racist.

    Good old Shitcago.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    The same correlation works for black test scores, it is why college admission require affirmative action, but we're all equal and if you quote the facts you're just a racist.
