Fighting crime a 'day-to-day' effort, top cop says (Chicago barf alert)
Chicago Tribune ^ | 09 sept 2012 | John P. Huston

So far this month, the number of homicides has surpassed an average of one per day.

Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy found some consolation in that statistic on Saturday.

“The fact is, we’re doing better than we were doing before,” McCarthy said, after a press conference highlighting a citywide youth anti-violence campaign that recently ended.

Through noon Saturday, there were 10 homicides for the month in Chicago — including two gun-related deaths shortly before McCarthy’s press conference, according to reports. There were 15 homicides through Sept. 8 last year, Chicago police statistics show.

By “before”, does he mean the record homicides in August?

Fighting crime is a day-to-day effort; water is wet, ice is cold and the sun is hot. What a moron. Gun control, yea, good luck with the gang bangers who commit the vast majority of the murders over turf and drug distribution contol. As for anti-snitching, yea, sure. The gangs terrorize the neighborhoods, nobody in their right mind would snitch on a gangbanger and not have themselves, or family members, brutalized or murdered. 12,000 cops and 50,000 to 100,0000 gangbangers (they don’t know the real number).....you lose, Gary. A police state with military brought in to round up (kill as many as possible, first) gangbangers might subdue the problem for a while, but it will come back. Chicago is a wild west town, always was, always will be.

McCarthy laid out his two primary anti-violence objectives for the crowd of children and adults gathered inside the center.

The first would require that Illinois firearm owners report when a weapon is sold, given away, lost or stolen. At the South Side event, McCarthy and Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez both said they are pushing for legislation that would require such reports.

“Now, that is not gun control,” McCarthy said. “That is simply telling us where your guns are.”

McCarthy said a second high-priority goal is to reverse a stubborn culture against snitching in neighborhoods where a fear of retaliation keeps potential witnesses from cooperating with police investigations. The police department expects to launch a campaign soon that would target that problem, he said.

OK, so how do you know where your gun is if it's been lost or stolen? He's a gun-grabbing moron. And most of us get paid for results, not "effort", so he must be a Democrat, too. (But that's redundant with "gun-grabbing moron", isn't it?) I am sooooo happy I don't need to work in Chicago any more!

But whatever you do, do NOT allow the citizens to possess the means by which to defend themselves.

That would make too much... er... sense.

We could make some progress in Chicago if we took the guns away from the public “servants”.

If Rahm had the political will and Garry McCarthy wasn’t such a tool....

They can fix this problem by picking up every gang leader and their next level of control by tossing them in jail and let them know NOBODY is getting out even if it takes 100 years until they get their gang members to stop the violence...

They have this brand new jail sitting empty...fill it up...feed them spam and jailhouse bread until they break...

Obama’s Democratic Platform Calls for More Restrictions on Gun Owners’ Rights

Posted on September 7, 2012

One thing was made crystal clear at the Democratic National Convention, held this week in Charlotte, N.C. The 2012 National Democratic Platform is President Barack Obama’s platform. There is nothing in the document that doesn’t reflect the President’s position.

While the opening lines give lip service to supporting the Second Amendment, the rest of the plank calls for renewing the semi-auto ban and for regulating gun shows into oblivion.

Here’s the language:

Per Mayor Rahm: “If it wasn't for the murders and shootings, crime in Chicago is really quite low.”
