Officials Shrug Shoulders at Violent Weekend in Chicago

Chicago Daily Observer 6 August 2018 No Comment
Rahm made his traveling circus of exempt crime fighters hold a press conference to re-assure everyone that they were on top of shit. Waller turned out to be the sacrificial lamb:
  • “I promise this city that we won’t be defeated,” Chicago Police Chief of Patrol Fred Waller said during a news conference held Sunday afternoon at police headquarters. “We won’t be overrun by that small element that’s committing these reckless acts.”

    Waller said much of the violence is being traced back to gangs. […] Waller said the uptick in violence cannot be attributed to police resources being diverted to the Lollapalooza music festival.

    Officers working Lollapalooza were on their regular days off and received overtime pay, he said. “So they’re not people who would have been on the street anyway, so we’re not losing any resources to Lollapalooza,” Waller said.

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?
