One Rampage Too Many - Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy Has To Go

ISRA Press Release:

One Rampage Too Many - Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy Has To Go

CHICAGO, March 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA):

The ISRA is once again calling upon Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to fire Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy . This latest call for McCarthy's ouster comes after a mob of young thugs - estimated to be in the hundreds - swarmed the Magnificent Mile shopping district Saturday night and began beating dozens of innocent shoppers. This latest mob action appears to be the most serious in a string of events over the past two years involving gangs of youths randomly attacking shoppers on North Michigan Avenue.

"Just like dyeing the Chicago River green on St. Patty's Day, cracking tourists' heads on North Michigan Avenue is becoming a Windy City tradition," commented ISRA Executive Director, Richard Pearson . "The first warm night of the year, and all hell breaks loose in the city's most tony shopping district. It should be clear to everybody by now that Supt. McCarthy has lost control of the city. What are things going to be like when the weather really heats up? What has to happen before Emanuel wakes up and gives the nod to a more effective top cop?"

"The ISRA has been cautioning folks against making Chicago a leisure time destination for a few years now," continued Pearson. "Unless you're the kind of person who wants to be terrorized, beaten, raped or robbed, then you should definitely find another place to vacation. For the law-abiding citizen, Chicago has become just too dangerous to visit."

"While vicious mobs have been busily destroying Chicago's tourism industry, Mayor Emanuel and Supt. McCarthy have been busy as well – vilifying law abiding firearm owners," said Pearson. "If they spent more time thwarting crime and less time trying to take guns away from hunters and sportsmen, then Chicago might be a better place in which to live and work."

"The sad events of Saturday night will certainly bolster efforts to pass concealed carry legislation down in Springfield," said Pearson. "Good people have a right to defend themselves against lawless thugs. I'm positive that the prospect of encountering armed citizens would make such flash mobs vaporize in a hurry."

The ISRA is the state's leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership. For more than a century, the ISRA has represented the interests of millions of law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.

I work in downtown Chicago. There is a tension there, and it is becoming more pronounced.

There’s probably not a whole lot of business going on downtown, especially after 5 pm.

I can add Chicago to the list of places I will never go! It ranks right up there with Mexico, Chicago might as well be a third world country considering the violence,lack of humanity and piss poor protection offered by government agencies.

So where are the black leaders such as Jesse and Rev. Al? What does the home town boy Barrack Obama have to say?

Each day I feel the tension growing. Each day brings new assaults on our freedoms, liberties and rights. Each day Americans become less American.

How about the policies of the Mayor, the Governor, and the State legislature?

This gives “wilding” a whole new dimension. If they use the internet to organize a “flash mob”, would it help to have a law making it a crime to organize criminally oriented flash mob events. Criminal conspiracy or something like that??

I visited Chicago in 2000,2001 and 2009. I loved it and have great memories but will never go back there until they get the city under control.

Just the usual rascally Yoots.

Thanks to America’s liberals we no longer have to travel all the way to Africa to experience this kind of behavior.

Isn’t diversity grand?

“Each day brings new assaults on our freedoms, liberties and rights. Each day Americans become less American.”

Well...Liberals become less American.

20-25 years ago, I lived in my own little world and never really felt encroached on. Thing’s I’d learned in school about the attitudes of our founders and the reasons they did certain things had no applicable meaning in my life.

But once in a while, my attention would be diverted to something a city, state or the federal government was doing. And it was annoying to have my attention grabbed that way. Like standing in line, minding my own business and having the person behind bump into me.

The first few times, it was alright but, it didn’t stop. It started happening more. And each time I turned around, my expression was a little less tolerant. I went from a polite “That’s OK” smile to a blank look. Then skeptical confusion moving to mind irritation. I went through disbelief and the disdain.

And each step started making me wonder about our founders. Had they gone through these steps? What was it that finally brought a voice of clarity deep inside to their minds and said, “You are too angry to be mad. The time now, is for Action.”

At some point I stopped turning back to the front of the line. I just stared.

That’s what Americans do. And nobody wants the next steps..

This crap has been going on in Chicago intermittently for more than a year - the major papers, always terrified to publicize anything with a particular racial tinge to it, have done their best to ignore or bury stories on these incidents.

This one they won’t be able to ignore.

So once again, even at the local level, the lamestream media isn’t just part of the problem - other than the thugs instigating this stuff, they are the major facilitators of the problem.

How can this be? The newspapers called them merely “mischievous youths”.
