The Chicago Police Department has been turned into an undermanned, demoralized, observe and report security guard service.
The blame lies squarely on the shoulders of the Mayor and City Council. Their Far Left politics and corruption are 100% of the problem.
The elimination of self-reliance and rewarding people for avoiding productivity creates droves of ignorant but loyal voters keeping the Bolshevik despots in power indefinitely. Too many of Chicago’s citizens are only too happy to turn personal responsibilities over to any nanny government.
Chicago’s politicians have made the entire population totally dependant on the police for protection and survival by violating both their gun and self-defense rights. The problem is they’ve put the handcuffs on the police and shifted the control of the city to the criminal element.
Gun control began in America during post Civil War reconstruction as a way to keep the newly freed slaves disarmed and that kept the Ku Klux Klan in solid control for nearly 100 years.
Today Chicago’s unconstitutional gun control enables street gang thugs to commit genocide. The facts are clear that nearly all of Chicago’s murder victims are African-American.
Even now the beleaguered new police superintendent is planning to resurrect the gun raid team whose only significant accomplishments were raiding the homes of middle-aged white gun collectors and grabbing guns never used in any crimes. The Supreme Court has recently made it quite clear this is constitutionally protected activity.
The police department has been neutralized as an effective crime fighting tool. It will take a total leadership change and decades before anyone wearing the Chicago police uniform will trust City Hall and appointed police administrators again enough to dare do the job they were trained to do.
Chicago has created conditions for the perfect genocide storm.
