Report: Chicago To Fight Gun Violence With Letters

Chicago police are going to hand deliver letters to people suspected of committing or being victims of gun crimes in an effort to stem violence in the city, according to a new report.

Starting Friday, a district commander will be delivering letters warning certain targets in that district not to commit violent crimes, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The pilot program is targeting individuals off a “heat list” developed by a Yale professor, who studied murders on Chicago’s West Side between 2005 and 2010 and found a small network of people was responsible for more than 70 percent of the killings, according to the Sun-Times.

Stupid is as stupid does.

I can just imagine a bunch of Cripts rolling on the floor, laughing their effin a$$es off.

Where DO these clowns find this stuff?

Too much dope, too little smarts. “Hey, ChiTown PD, really hope this works for ya!!!”

I just can’t stop laughing....

What they really need to do is to send them a trophy for each week they behave.

The longer they behave, the taller the trophies get. Limit 52 feet. Thugs like bling.

Hey, dumb bass! That "small network" is made up of gangs. Bust them, you idiots!! Heavy pressure.

Oh, crap. I forgot about the ACLU, Brother Jesse, and Brother Al. They won't like you messing with their friends/customers.

I'll bet they don't shoot their dogs while they're there.

Nice letters to thugs! How come nobody thought of that before?
And if that doesn't work, another more sternly worded letter, including the phrase "pretty please".
And after that, a third letter with some harsh language like "pretty please with sugar on top".

Let’s see -

Midnight basketball

Community Centers

Self Esteem Training in Public Schools

Mentors and ‘Role Models’

Dumbing down classes

Social Promotions

Yep, letters - hand delivered by the police. That’s the one...

Hey, don’t knock it. At least these letters are likely to be more effective than gun control has been in Chicago.

Why does no one use RICO against the gangs?

Rahm, whatever you do, do not use cursive writing in your letters. No one will be able to read them. Wait...hold that thought. Most of the recipients are functionally illiterate so it won't matter.

Dear Thug,

Please be law-abiding. Please don't shoot people, or steal their stuff, or take drugs.

Be respectful of others, especially your elders.

Sincerely,
Your Neighbors

What could possibly go wrong with this plan?

To: DogByte6RER; All

The news accounts are not doing a very good job of reporting on this program. Everything that I have read about these efforts is that they work. The letter is just one part of the program, where the emphasis is on the very small number of violent people who cause most of the violent crime and homicides. Here is a link telling how these work.
The NRA teamed with similar programs in project Exile:

The emphasis should always be on the bad guys instead of on the guns.

He studied Chicago murders for 5 years but he never spent one minute with the people who live in the area. It sounds like the typical liberal professor who preaches from the safety of his ivory towers. Only someone as smart as the professor would send letters to people who can't read. He must be a genius.
