The Chicago Way

Gang Driven Crime And Murder Spree in Chicago

Answer? More Government! Quick, Send In The National Guard!!



CHICAGO—Two lawmakers who believe violence has become so rampant in Chicago that the Illinois National Guard must be called in to help made a public plea to Gov. Pat Quinn on Sunday to deploy troops.

A recent surge in violent crime, including a night last week that saw seven people killed and 18 wounded—mostly by gunfire—prompted the request from Chicago Democratic Reps. John Fritchey and LaShawn Ford. They were joined by Willie Williams, whose son was shot and killed in 2006.

Chicago has had 113 homicide victims so far this year, Fritchey said.

“As we speak, National Guard members are working side-by-side with our troops to fight a war halfway around the world,” he said during a news conference in downtown Chicago. “The unfortunate reality is that we have another war that is just as deadly that is taking place right in our backyard.”

Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis said he didn’t think the National Guard was the best answer, noting that police focus on civilian law enforcement.

“I appreciate their frustration and their willingness to help,” he said after Fritchey and Ford’s news conference. “But I am simply not sure the National Guard is the answer to our problems—at least in terms of mass deployment. I’m frankly not sure what their mission would be.”

Weis said most of the violent crime has been focused in areas that represent only 9 percent of the city. Last week, he said the department was improving its gang intelligence, developing new computer programs and creating a mobile strike force of about 100 officers to try to quell the violence, which has been largely confined to the city’s south and west sides.

Hmm, a mere 9% of the city? And would there be any sort of ... cultural clumping in those areas perhaps?

Hmm, looks more like 59% to me, not 9%

And remember, Chicago is where all the guns are outlawed, along with your right to self-defense. A city controlled by Democrats for generations. How’s that gun control shizzba workin’ out for ya now, Mayor Daley?

Fritchey said guard members have been trained in civil law enforcement as part of their nation-building assignments in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Deploying the guard also would make economic sense, considering the near-crisis in state finances, he said.

“We don’t have the dollars to hire additional officers, but in the National Guard we have men and women on hand who are trained to deal with these situations,” he said.

That’s right suckas. Chicago had to make a few budget cut backs, so now the state - or the nation - can pay their law enforcement tab. Liberals. To the bloody bone. But if you think that’s bad ... here’s Jesse Jackson’s take. (hold your nose before reading, please.)

‘Chicago is in a State Of Emergency’

Chicago is in a state of emergency. It has been reported that 113 people have been killed in Chicago this year. The same number of U.S. soldiers have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan during the same time period.

The present structure is not adequate to secure the people. We are laying off teachers, closing schools, proposing shorter school days, reducing public transportation, laying off transit workers and raising the fare for public transportation and public parking. The basic issues in the zones of pain are not being addressed. Neighborhoods facing high crime and violence are also facing record home foreclosure rates and student loan defaults.

If talk about bringing in the National Guard illuminates the issue, then let the debate begin.

We need to revive the ban on assault weapons. We need targeted jobs, targeted job training, open skill and trade training in the unions and organized adult regulated recreation for our children.

We need a comprehensive urban policy plan now. We have a plan for security and development in Iraq and Afghanistan. We also had a plan to salvage Wall Street. Why not a plan for Chicago?

The robber barons of our time have been bailed out while the poor are being locked up and wallow in unacceptable violence. We need help now.

Just as we have decided that the Wall Street banks are too big to fail, the growing number of the poor and the unemployed are too big to abandon. They must no longer be told to wait. Those in the zones of pain, whether rural Appalachia or Alabama, are too big to fail as well.

Right, he makes so much sense. Ban a particular kind of hunting rifle that is not available for sale in the city. And maybe not even in the state? That will help. More teachers, bus drivers, and toll takers will cut down on crime and gang violence. Works every time! But those high crime neighborhoods are having a hard time; it’s not their fault. And here’s a real burning bag of bullshit: things are so bad for them that their homes are being foreclosed on, and they can’t pay back their student loans!! Sure, as if any of these ghetto rats actually own instead of renting, and as if a single one of them made it through high school and went as far as community college for a week. Wha ‘chu talkin’ ‘bout Willis?

See, there can’t be a plan for the city. Gotta have one of those. Because Chicago doesn’t have a planning board? They don’t have an entire small army of business, social, cultural, academic, and housing planners? Amazing. That makes them unique among towns and cities across the nation with populations over 10,000. Who’da thunk it?

Now, let’s get some more of that Obamamoney in here - because Illinois didn’t get the hugest slice of that stimulation pie, nor did they get a crop of earmarks 10 times bigger than last year - and create government funded jobs for people. Gots to. Targeted jobs, given out based on who you are, not what you can do. Because, amazingly, private industry doesn’t want to invest in the area. At all! Because they’re all racists you know. Uppity heimies controlling all the money in their secret world domination headquarters in Heimietown NJ, right Jesse?

So while Jesse calls for mo’ money, mo’ money, mo’ money ... others look at the big picture and see how sending in the guard could be a unifying experience.

The director of CeaseFire Illinois keeps tabs on violent conflicts across the city.

He and 120 workers broker truces—sometimes literally getting between gunmen—to stop the shooting.

So Hardiman’s opinion on whether Chicago should allow the Illinois National Guard to safeguard the city carries some weight.

“It’s a good scare tactic,” he said. “But the brothers would unify to fight the system. You would have a throwback to the Black Panthers.”

Hardiman said the recent spike in murders is worrisome, especially to those in the neighborhoods on the South and West Sides where most of the violence happens.

Yet, it’s nothing new.

“Every year we struggle with March and April,” he said. “There’s a spike when the first hot days come. Any slight infraction will lead to people getting killed.”

Hardiman, whose organization operates in 12 Chicago communities and seven outside the city, plans to have his workers visit 10 communities simultaneously at 6 p.m. Friday to “go into the belly of the beast and get the word out for these young guys to put their guns down.”

Although much of the violence involves gang members, Hardiman said most of the killings involve “interpersonal” squabbles about relationships, insults and the like.

See? Nothing to worry about. This is all just the ghetto version of Le sacre du printemps. The rites of Spring. Nothing to see here, just push the bodies to one side and move along.

And the best bottom line of all is that someone has already figured out how to blame it all on Global Warming. Awesome. Blame it on a few warm days because it’s Spring. Liberals are all nuts.
