Weis Laments Chicago’s Code of Silence, Demands More Gun Control
Chicago, IL—Chicago’s police superintendent, Jody Weis blames a “code of silence” and a lack of gun laws for the spike in cold blooded murder. Wasn’t the City of Chicago declared a Gun Free Zone three decades ago?
Weis said that even the dying victims of shooting refuse to reveal the names of their killers. He complained that the lack cooperation by the community was the reason the shootings go unsolved. Weis devoted much of the nearly half-hour press conference to complaining that there are not enough gun bans and promised another lobbying effort in Springfield to end what few gun rights citizens have in Illinois.

Is Weis so stupid that he can’t figure out that the community knows that they can’t be protected by an undermanned, underpaid and poorly equipped police department?
Is Weis so stupid that he can’t figure out that law-abiding and forcibly unarmed citizens would be crazy to cooperate with police? Clearly you have a community where people are forbidden to protect themselves and the police are unable to protect them.
Is Weis so stupid that he does not realize that the cops working in the trenches want to see thugs stopped by trained and armed citizens that are willing to protect themselves, their families and businesses?
Is Weis so stupid he does not know that gun bans have never reduced gun crime, but in fact increases it?
Is Weis so stupid that he can’t understand that guns in the hands of the law-abiding save lives?
Weis actually said that without guns people can’t murder. Weis needs to pay a visit to the medical examiner who can explain how thousands have died over the years from fists, feet, rocks, sticks and knives. Of course there is plenty of strangulation, arson, bombing and using motor vehicles as deadly weapons.
This is a case where Chicago’s politicians and bureaucrats are so incredibly out of touch with reality. There is no hope under this corrupt and incompetent administration for this once great and relatively safe city to survive.
I have two videos. The first one shows surveillance video of a shotgun wielding thug robbing a Chicago dry cleaner and terrorizing the people behind the counter.
The second is the afternoon press conference given by Jody Weis. Noticeably missing was a single question about his running away from that in progress shooting/homicide two weeks ago. I guess Chicago’s reporters are too afraid of being cut off from police information to dare ask anything embarrassing.
