Chicago mayor “Big Brain” Brandon Johnson rolled out a “grand plan” to reduce violence crime in his crime-ridden cesspool of a city. In an interview with CNN, Johnson outlined his plan to use the “full force of government” to solve the crime problem by issuing reparations checks to descendants of slaves.
ZeroHedge covered Johnson’s rollout on CNN:
Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson wants to pay off ‘descendants of enslaved African Americans’ with reparation checks every month to end the “cycle of violence” in the crime-ridden metro area run by radical progressives.
While speaking to Poppy Harlow on “CNN This Morning” Wednesday, Johnson acknowledged Chicago was plagued with out-of-control violent crime and declared that the “full force of government” would solve the crisis. The brilliant idea from the mayor: $500,000 in reparation checks.
“These are the first dollars spent in this city to begin the process of studying both restoration and reparations,” Johnson said.
He said, “When residents who have experienced neglect and disinvestment for generations speak out of their pain and their trauma, this administration and the Black Caucus we hear you.”
Brandon Johnson completely ignored how the Democrat Party has run Chicago for almost a century. Any “neglect and disinvestment” came on their watch.
Others are no doubt wondering if Johnson made any mentions of reparations checks for the families of Union soldiers who died fighting to end slavery. Yeah, that didn’t happen either.
While Murder City USA’s homicides have eased by about 10% over last year, violent robberies and carjackings have skyrocketed along with most other serious crimes.

In fact, seven people have been shot during armed robberies and carjackings over the past week. From CWB Chicago:
CHICAGO — Another robbery victim was shot during a holdup on Friday afternoon, Chicago police said, making him at least the seventh person shot during robberies since last Saturday.
But what do you expect when the Land of Lincoln’s new No Cash Bail law releases armed robbers and carjackers back onto the streets without posting a nickel of bail. Courtesy CWB Chicago:
CHICAGO — A man accused of carjacking a 55-year-old woman in River North will be released on an ankle monitor after a Cook County judge rejected a prosecutor’s request to have him detained as a public safety threat.
The woman was outside her car in the first block of West Hubbard when a man jumped behind the wheel and drove away, knocking her to the ground and causing a head injury, around 3:15 p.m. on December 23, according to a Chicago police report.
Already Johnson’s bird-brained idea is meeting with public ridicule as it should.

Remember, Chicago suffers from gang violence, not “gun” violence, but soft-on-crime politicians prefer to deflect responsibility for their failed criminal justice “reform” policies. Those gang members don’t care about the rule of law. They illegally posses and brandish guns made illegal by Pritzker’s new PICA gun ban. To say nothing of federal laws against machine guns.
Others flat out called it what Johnson’s plan is really all about buying votes.
Reparations is code for buying votes.
Mayor of Chicago Brandon Johnson has created such a welfare hell hole and losing population other than illegals, it’s going to collapse under it’s own weight. https://t.co/gAmIMfRgcT
