(Guns Save Life.com) – Remarkably, after publicly denying or minimizing reports of roaming groups of black teens robbing and battering random people in the “safe” downtown areas of the Windy City (or ransacking and looting businesses), Chicago’s alcohol-loving Police Superintendent (who as a civilian would likely be unable to get one of Illinois new concealed carry licenses) Garry McCarthy has actually acknowledged there’s a problem at a news conference earlier this week.
In that news conference, he conceded there was a problem with a half-dozen groups of roaming thugs causing mayhem for tourists and visitors to Chicago’s tony “Gold Coast” and “Magnificent Mile”.
In short, he wants to “escort” these misbehaving teens around “like NATO protesters”.
Oy. The stupidity from the rulers in Chicago – aka “Chiraq” – is long and deep. It b-u-r-n-s, in fact.
That’s going to require a lot of extra overtime, Mein Fuhrer McCarthy. And the National Guard isn’t going to provide manpower like they did for the NATO event. And the state and federal governments aren’t going to provide monetary support either. And if Garry McCarthy isn’t willing to pay overtime, this is going to leave a lot of the city relatively unprotected for criminals in other areas to ply their trade with relative impunity.
Here’s a better idea or two, Garry.
How about arresting these teens that misbehave – with a generous application of Hickory shampoo during the arrest.
Arrest and imprison hooligans who think it’s fun, cool or stylish to swarm innocent people and beat them senseless.
Let’s call their violence for what it is: senseless and where it’s racist, let’s call it racist. Yeah, black people can be racist and bigoted too.
Justice should be colorblind.
Tell the race hustlers and community agitators to pound sand when they protest the arrest of uncivilized thugs, claiming “that’s racist”.
Tell the race hustlers to instead address the problem of the self-destructive “hip hop”, “gangsta” culture that’s destroying entire generations of blacks in America.
Let’s streamline the Illinois Concealed Carry licensing process and quit objecting to anyone who doesn’t have a flawless history, but who meets the legal requirements to own a firearm. In other words, lets get more guns into the hands of good people out in public.
Let’s roll back some of these “gun free” zones like public parks, mass transit, hospitals and similar locations where hoodlums like to ply their trade in or near.
In the meantime, until and unless Chicago adopts common-sense reforms and goes after violent criminals instead of law-abiding gun owners, we recommend to our family and friends that they don’t spend their recreational or business time or money in Chicago.
Chicago isn’t safe.
Avoid Chicago: Stay safe. Stay alive.
Oh yes, NBC Chicago just can’t quite report reality in their “politically correct” reporting, so we’ll do it with our addition in red font.
(NBC Chicago) – When small groups of teens took to Michigan Avenue over the weekend, Chicago police employed a tactic that was used two years ago when demonstrators protested the presence of world leaders in the city, police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Tuesday.
“We escorted [them] around, basically like NATO protesters,” he told reporters, calling the tactic “effective.”
“You all know what happens during the summer months on Michigan Avenue. We have a strategy to prevent these mobs of kids from coming up and causing mayhem downtown.”
Chicago’s downtown areas in recent years have been plagued with incidents of “wildings,” in which groups of [black] teens intimidate [non-black] pedestrians and, at times, assault and rob them.
