President Barack Obama’s visit to Chicago didn’t stop another violent weekend. At least seven people were killed and 35 were injured since Friday night.
Why on Earth would Barack’s visit stop violence? I thought the Tea Parties were hateful racists, so you’d expect violence to increase during Presidential visits.
That the Windy City is riddled with Tea Partyers came as news to me, though. Maybe Chicago should finally let non-Tea Party citizens arm themselves? After all, it’s not like those “bitter clingers” will give up arms voluntarily.
This weekend marked the beginning of an overtime incentive program to put more police in neighborhoods where crime is highest. Fewer than 60 officers signed up for the program, though.
If you’d told me that only 0.5% of a union’s members wanted O.T., I’d have called you a liar. Jeez, cops, go big or stay home. In fact…why not just stay out of those areas entirely?
Put a gun in the hands of every single adult in the hot zones, keep the cops out…and shortly the death and injury totals will plummet. The transition period might get pretty messy. But we’d be getting a lot fewer of these…
The youngest victim was a 16-year-old girl who died after she was shot three times in the chest…
…and a whole lot more dead
All right-thinking Americans want to see those murderous bastiches dead or broken. So what’s the holdup?
