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.
Im going to tell you what some suspicions have been, and people have whispered to me: theyre not sure that black people are shooting all of these children, Davis said.
Theres some suspicion and I dont want to spread this, but Im just going to tell you what Ive been hearing they suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.
When WBBM asked Davis if she thinks its possible that police are killing children, she said, I dont know. I dont know that they are, and I dont know that they arent, since no ones been arrested. We dont know whos doing it.
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?
Good job, moron.
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.
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.
What deniers accept as truth is truly amazing.
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.
Stupid moron,these black morons have to keep it going..How about the police department leaving and see how long your ugly butt last in that crime infested city..
If the Chicago police would actually kill some of these thugs, their murder rate might drop.

Yes... her "constituency" are the shooters.
Yeah, right... And the black rapes? Those are done by white guys wearing black masks...
These folks have more excuses and lies than carter has liver pills...
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.
Obama was State Senator: What does that tell you about Illinois Legislature.
It seems as dem poor black folks don't know nuffing 'bout nuffing when it comes to the crimes that happen in their communities.
“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.
I am glad she is pinning it on the Police... i bet they vote liberal... probably voted for her, Rahm and Barack...
the ubiquitous “they” suspect that “they” are killing the kids-—the damn kids kill rather than fistfight, it’s the rappin thing to do
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.
