If you don’t know about Bill Bratton, he’s a guy that you might want to keep an eye on. He’s been police chief of the two biggest cities in the nation, and each logged truly phenomenal drops in crime under his tenure, and even after his departure, but while his approach was kept in place. Based on his history, if Chicago wised up and hired him on, I’d expect even that cesspool to be radically cleaned up within the space of three to five years.
If Chicago cleaned up corruption and criminality, there would be no need for the Democrat Party. They don’t want it to go away. Crime and dependence is their bread and butter.
