(Illinois) State Rep.: ĎMaybe The (Chicago) Police Are Killing Some Of These Kidsí
CBS News ^ | July 19, 2013

Posted on 07/28/2013 6:43:55 AM PDT by Zakeet

CHICAGO (CBS) – An Illinois state representative has publicly raised the possibility that Chicago police officers might be the ones responsible for the unsolved murders of black youths in Chicago.

State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago) was interviewed about Chicago crime Tuesday on WCHB-AM in Detroit.

“I’m going to tell you what some suspicions have been, and people have whispered to me: they’re not sure that black people are shooting all of these children,” Davis said.

“There’s some suspicion – and I don’t want to spread this, but I’m just going to tell you what I’ve been hearing – they suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.”

When WBBM asked Davis if she thinks it’s possible that police are killing children, she said, “I don’t know. I don’t know that they are, and I don’t know that they aren’t, since no one’s been arrested. We don’t know who’s doing it.”

[Snip]

Earlier this month, Davis called on Gov. Pat Quinn to call out the National Guard to assist Chicago police in fighting violent crime in the city.

She suggested the governor and Mayor Rahm Emanuel could appoint a blue-ribbon panel – including former Police Superintendents Terry Hillard and Jody Weis, along with religious leaders, teachers, and others – to direct the day-to-day operations of National Guard members sent to Chicago to fight crime.

Now, maybe you Right Wing Nuts will quit posting Chicago crime statistics ... and seriously discuss some meaningful solutions to our murder problem ... like taking Cops off the street ... and confiscating guns ... and demanding justice for Trayvon!

If I was a member of the Chicago police, I would SUE. SUE SUE SUE. Go after her personally for defaming me. How is anyone supposed to trust the police after a ‘distinguished’ politician accuses the police of MURDERING INNOCENT CHILDREN?

And why is no one addressing the ILLEGAL guns owned by CRIMINALS that are killing those innocents?

She doesn’t want to spread this rumor mind you , she just mentions it on the radio.

She wants teachers and Ministers to be in charge of the National Guard.

This is an Illinois State Representative.

Somebody voted for this twit.

Liberals have a problem...a sanity problem. They always want to blame someone else.

I think the entire Liberal establishment is sitting on the edge of a precipice waiting to fall (like Detroit). Their entire approach to life and reality is poison yet rather than grow and develop real solutions (which takes, at a minimum, the identification of the source of the problem), they merely continue to blame others.

The problem will never get fixed until the people who are actually responsible TAKE RESPONSIBILITY! Obviously this woman isn’t responsible but she is deflecting the responsibility onto those who aren’t guilty. Why ever would the police be doing the shooting? I suspect a large percentage of Chicago police are Black. Typical Dem, blaming everyone else but those who are guilty.

If the Chicago police would actually kill some of these thugs, their murder rate might drop.

First they were young teens, then children, then kids, what is next, Tots?

The black culture is a pack of racist imbiciles ruled by a lust for power politics and the money it brings to them. They care not a whit about the corpses (not corps) tossed up on the scrap heap of life over which they paw their vampire ways to reach the acme of a parasitic idol.

In my younger days, the deign of miscrant black youths was the black cop on the beat. Black detectives I worked with were embarrassed over what they saw in their “communities” and with which they disagreed because they felt it held them back. It is no different than other minorities either.
Ethnic Italian police were at the front of fighting the Mafia. Unfortunately this “community policing and politicing” seems to have vanished over the past few decades, and for that I have not a clue.

Actually one of the big problems facing inner city blacks is the reliance on "street news". Its so bad that CNN or MSNBC would actually be a step up.

“Go after her personally for defaming me. “

You have to prove injury. If you lost your job, perhaps. But even that would be hard to prove. The first amendment protects people like her.

According to Wikipedia (I know, but gotta start somewhere) the Chicago police force is only 49% white, 29% black, 19% Hispanic, and 3% other. So if she is accusing the cops of doing the shooting, she should be aware that half of those cops are minorities.

Just when you thought Black denial couldn't get any worse...

Black youth are killing black youth, and rather than discuss it frankly and begin to fix that, they blame it on the police and avoid once again doing anything to help their own.  I'm White and I care more about Blacks than their leaders do.

And yet there is no evidence whatsoever of a civil war inside Black ranks.  I view this as one of the lowest points in United States Black history.

“How is anyone supposed to trust the police after a ‘distinguished’ politician accuses the police of MURDERING INNOCENT CHILDREN?”

They’re not, that is the objective.

There appears to be a pattern developing.

First you have prosecuting attorneys in Florida prosecuting an obviously innocent man, now you have an attack against police with claims of police possibly murdering innocent blaaaaaack chillrens.

The Obama adm and democrats are starting a full scale attack against the legal system.

The exact same strategy was attempted in July 2009 with the Gates dust up where the CBC called for a review of all complaints filed against police with the FBI.

Before that it was attempted during B Clinton’s impeachment, what Hillary called “the scorched earth police”.

Before that it was used with the R King beating in 1991 where the dems demanded a review of all complaints files against police with the FBI.

This is part of Hillary’s strategy to get her Buffalo Butt into the WH.

Years ago I remember seeing a news/documentary program about “official” squads going out in the night and shooting street kids. It was in one of the huge South American cities plagued with slum problems.

Lets be honest the anti-white leftist whites are mainly responsible for creating and fostering this ghetto politics. The Daley machine cleaned these kind of cranks out of the city hall, but left the old guard crazies in the state house and the congressional delegation. If the Chicago media was not staffed by lunatics who think whites are secret Nazis who are at any unguarded moment going to set up death camps for jews and minorities these idiots could be brushed aside and blacks and Hispanics could be assimilated into nice polite political society, but racial tribalism is encouraged and this crackpot is what we get.

When the ordinary course of law fails and the courts actively favor the criminal then Death Squads and Vigilance Committees arise.

The only thing wrong with Death Squads and Vigilance Committees is the fact they can be hasty resulting in killing the wrong person.

So by this way of thinking, in all the big liberal controlled cities where the black murder rate is high it must be the cops. Let me express my theory. I believe it’s Planned Parenthood assassins get the ones they missed.

You realize that getting married before having children and staying together is viewed by the black community as imposing white standards on black people, that anything similar like working and saving and not doing drugs and not running the streets is viewed as imposing white standards on black people and must be rebelled against. Timeliness is viewed as elastic, I mean everything is reduced to a matter of perception. It is a folking mess

There is no rule that is regarded as one that must be followed. Rules are suspect and made to be broken

And that’s why what little television viewing I do is almost always reruns from a time when that wasn’t true, or if it was at least it wasn’t in-your-face. Decent people were shown as decent people, and trashy people were either not seen or their trashy behavior was shown as trashy. Right is right, and wrong is wrong. I go out of my way to avoid having lies shoved down my throat. I don’t boycott every show with people I don’t agree with, but if I have a choice between Leave It To Beaver or The Fosters, guess what I’m watching.

“I don’t know. I don’t know that they are, and I don’t know that they aren’t, since no one’s been arrested. We don’t know who’s doing it.”

I don't know who is killing the kids because I'm too stupid and lazy to do the research, so let's blame the police. --And people wonder why there is a racial divide in America...

A pearl of wisdom from Ms. Davis about what the National Guard, if called to Chicago, shouldn't/i> do:

“I don’t want them stopping citizens, or frisking citizens, or acting as if they’re in a foreign land."

OMG! Stop and risk, followed by immediate, hard prosecution of those found illegally possessing firearms, is the only proven way to bring the carnage under control and get witnesses to start telling what they know about the gangs' activities. She's just shown that, along with Jesse, Al, Obama, and Holder, she's, at the very least, a deliberate criminal enabler and supporter. Of course, since Jesse, Al, Obama, and Holder are all criminals, she's probably one too. Indeed, she probably gets a lot of her income from the gangs in one way or another.
