Chicago and the University of Illinois Chicago have been paying perfectly good money for the anti-gun “Ceasefire” organization to hire convicts, scumbags and gang banging thugs to “mediate” potential criminal violence in the Windy City.

Translation:  Here’s some money.  Stay out of trouble please.

They’ve hired guys who were arrested for slinging dope when they were supposed to be “interrupting” crime.

They were paying a pair of young thugs who were committing home invasions while they were supposed to be “interrupting” crime – well, until one shot his partner in the back of the head with a sawed-off shotgun (ouch, that left a mark!).

We’ve covered this scandalous group for some time.  Chicago’s $1 Million to CeaseFire… for nothingCeased: Chicago’s CEASEFIRE folds as $1M “grant” runs dry  CeaseFire SCAM castigated in 2007 IL Auditor General report

Now, word comes of a 46-year-old Ceasefire employee who was molesting a teen girl, raping her dozens of times when he was supposed to be “interrupting” crime.

(Chicago Sun-Times) – On the streets, Richard Hernandez was supposed to stop violence as an “interrupter” in the celebrated CeaseFire program.

But Chicago cops have another name for him: rapist.

Hernandez faces 36 counts charging him with sexually assaulting and kidnapping a teenage girl while he worked for the program, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned. He’s among at least nine employees of the anti-violence program to face serious criminal charges in recent years.

Hernandez, 46, started as a temporary worker in December 2010 before becoming a $16-an-hour “violence interrupter” in May 2013, records show. The program is affiliated with the University of Illinois at Chicago.

On April 16, 2012, he allegedly took a 17-year-old girl to a White Sox game and plied her with alcohol. Afterward, he allegedly sexually assaulted her in a junkyard. The assaults continued through August 2013, prosecutors said.

Ceasefire is gun-hating liberals’ idea of crime prevention strategies.

Their employees are really excited to “interrupt” crime… like this model Ceasefire employee:

Police have long been suspicious about whether CeaseFire provides a cover for employees to commit crimes. They point to CeaseFire worker Sylvester Hudson, who was charged last year with selling heroin to a federal informant outside CeaseFire’s headquarters at UIC.

It’s not just the rank-and-file “interrupter” employees with issues with criminal acts.  Their former director had his own problems with the law.

[Tio] Hardiman had his own run-in with the law before he left CeaseFire last year. He was charged with domestic violence after his wife filed a complaint, but the case was dropped.

With strategies like hiring drug dealers, home invaders and child-molesting rapists, it’s no wonder Rahm’s city is a criminal cesspool.

  1. Democrats and many Republicans have no clue as to how to reduce crime. Chicago’s Ceasefire program is just typical – pay criminals to “interrupt” crime. What an ingenious idea! Did it not occur to the developers of this $1,000,000 program (Chicago and the University of Illinois) that the folks they hired to interrupt crime might just continue their criminal activities while on the dole? Probably not. But this is what we can expect more of as we continue to elect clueless politicians to public office, as we allow public universities to spread their ebola-like propaganda, and allow public sector unions to rule the roost. The state of our union is a sorry mess.

  2. The state of our nation is one of unraveling and deterioration.

    The underclass of America is growing rapidly and more brazen with each passing day.

    Thank you Barack Obama.
