)Illinois Governor Pat) Quinn Open-Minded About Using State Resources To Curb Chicago Violence
CBS Local ^ | September 21, 2013 | CBS

Posted on 09/22/2013 3:36:19 PM PDT by VideoPaul

Gov. Pat Quinn says he would consider using state resources to help combat Chicago street violence, but only if city officials want the assistance.

Speaking on this week’s mass shooting in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, Quinn was asked whether there have been discussions about sending in the state police or Illinois National Guard to assist Chicago police.

(snip)

"I live on the West Side of Chicago. It is an area that has been inflicted with violence, and we’ve got to protect the people,” Quinn said.

"we’ve got to protect the people,” Quinn said."

Crook County has been protecting its own for centuries.

we’ve got to protect the people

Government has done such a great job already, lol

How about letting people arm themselves with background checks and concealed carry permits and let them do YOUR jobs.

Translation: “We’ve got to protect our phony-baloney jobs!”

Interesting that Governor Irrelevant is open to using MORE PEOPLE WITH GUNS to combat violence in Chicago, while all the time trying to keep ordinary citizens, who are the victims, from defending themselves against the vermin that prey on them.

****”I live on the West Side of Chicago. It is an area that has been inflicted with violence, and we’ve got to protect the people,” Quinn said.****

But how is Governor Irrelevant, living amid the crime and violence, somehow NEVER a victim? Because he has PEOPLE WITH GINS protecting him and is family 24 hours a day.

Protection apparently only Governor Irrelevant and Rahmbo the potty-mouthed mayor are entitled to. The citizens who elect them and pay their salaries can go fend for themselves, unarmed.

All at once Quinn has shown himself to be WRONG about “less guns meaning less crime” and a hypocrite about the lives of those he’s sworn to protect.

Mr. Quinn could put his socioeconomic theories to work in his own life by dismissing his (and Rahmbo’s) armed bodyguards and walk unarmed among us, and see how long they survive. But, wanting to save their own skins and ONLY their own skins, they enjoy the protection of small arms while denying it for everyone else.

And that’s why he’s Governor Irrelevant.

Bring in the NATIONAL Guard to guard Chicago. Sounds like the first step to martial law.

“How about letting people arm themselves with background checks and concealed carry permits and let them do YOUR jobs. “

That’s the ultimate solution. For the time being I’m ok with using NG troops - if they are allowed to load live ammo in their weapons and if their rules of engagement allow them to fire on the cock roaches if threatened. But, that won’t happen. So, with that enevitableity I say keep the NG out of it.

This will have unintended consequences. If the National guard actually does anything, like shoot someone, or even just drive around intimidating people, they will start to be viewed as an occupying army, and the people will start acting like an occupied people.

Clothes make the man, and people act out the parts they are given.

I can’t understand why Mayor Rhambo won’t deputize the Million Moms for Gun Control, and have Caliph Baraq use them with the ATF to clean out the Chicago ghetto.

An armed National Guardsman on every street corner in the city from 6PM to 6AM would be a start.

Rahm will never allow it because the National Guard and State Police will end up decimating the police force and city government.

If the National Guard goes to Chicago, what would be their orders or rules of engagement?

You know, I live in the Chicagoland area, and let me just say this...in a perfect world, there wouldn't be a crime problem on certain areas on the Chicago west side, and the south-east side of the city. But its gotten out of hand. You'd think that law abiding, freedom minded people who live there would stand up for their rights, WORK with law enforcement, arm themselves and rid themselves of the HOOD RAT THUGS that live among them. But that's NOT going to happen. Black "leadership" does not have the intelligence, the will, or the backbone to do what is right. The black community does not have the intelligence, the will, or the backbone to do what is right. And now these HOOD RAT THUGS are bringing their HOOD RAT THUG culture, behaviors and evil doings into other areas of the city.

So by all means...(and I am serious here) send in the National Guard, institute a curfew and set up checkpoints. Keep them there until the criminal element is eradicated and order restored.

Personally I'm DONE with the same ole polly-anna bull$hit.

You are so RIGHT !

There could be 20 thugs with a bazooka hiding behind a building when the NG troops walk down the street....but the folks living there won't say a word that they're back there.

These neighborhoods live by the code of silence....and the law of the jungle.

“we’ve got to protect the people”

Law enforcement does not “serve”, and do not protect. They uphold the law. And they don’t do a great job at that either.

Pat Quinn is a fraud and a liar. He won’t do a thing unless Mike Madigan tells him.

I live in the Chicago suburbs and I could not care less what happens in that liberal-infested city. But if I were mayor, let’s just say certain undesirables would go missing during the night, never to be seen nor heard from again.

how about making Cook County IL, Boulder County Colorado and Travis County Texas their own one state?

Nothing I have read in the constitution says they have to be connected.

They get two senators, maybe four or five reps and they can be happy.

I know I would be happy. make everyone happy.
