#1 The cop's eye view of Chicago. And they ain't crazy about their bosses...

#2 Chicago's top cop said the "no-snitch" code of silence on the street is the biggest contributor in his department's struggle to charge shooters.

When you create tribes, loyalty to the tribes trumps loyalty to the overall community. A political machine based upon tribes creates the ineffectiveness as power trumps justice.

#5 There is some indication that a program similar to Fast & Furious was going on in the midwest. This program was called Operation Gangwalker. However, I have not heard much about this program since Fast & Furious has died down. Gangwalker.

#6 Gangwalker. Fostering the deaths of Americans to advance a political agenda.

Why is this so believable and why am I not suprised?

Makes you wonder if there was a 'insanewalker' program as well to put guns in the hands of the mentally-ill.

#7 I remember an article about DC during the Marion Barry era. Only 30% of the murder cases resulted in an arrest. Almost all of those cases involved a White or Black middle class victim. Almost all the other cases were closed when the primary suspect was killed.

You still can't get away with murder, but you can decide who's going to punish you.

#8 Illinois Today - Your State Tomorrow?

Here are a couple of interesting facts I ran across:
For every Cop Rahm 'hired' in 2012, six have retired.
There hasn't been a Detective's Class in over five years.
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has shut down two prisons and sold an unopened one to the Feds.
Chicago has the toughest gun laws in the nation.
Illinois is the only state or territory without concealed carry.

Police Superintendant McCarthy repeatedly says CRIME IS DOWN

And the Chicago Media, ALL OF IT, fearful of not being invited to the right parties or getting their tickets fixed don't call him and Rahm on it!

Be sure to thank a Democrat

#9 Chicago's top cop said the "no-snitch" code of silence on the street is the biggest contributor in his department's struggle to charge shooters.

Perhaps but a friend's recent experience with an attempted home invasion in a very blue city leads me to believe that the priorities of the police likely also play a significant role.

My friend was alerted mid-evening to someone attempting to enter via her front door. She retrieved one of her handguns, called 911 & waited. Finding the door locked the would-be home invader attempted to kick the door down, failed and after a few minutes returned to his car and drove away.

The police arrived almost concurrent with the criminal's departure. My friend, observing their arrival on one of her surveillance cameras, stowed her handgun and opened the door. Rather than taking her description and attempting to apprehend the criminal (whom they had likely just passed on the street) they merely informed her that she was in no danger, that there was no way to locate the perp, that he was just a drunk or addict who'd confused her home with his and not a 'criminal' (!), and that he'd not return.

They did, however, notice a spare clip she'd not stowed at which point they told her that she should have informed the 911 dispatcher that she was armed as they would have arrived much sooner if they'd been made aware of that fact. They then began to attempt to question her about the number and type of firearms she kept in her home. She declined to answer but they persisted several more times in demanding information about her weapons.

Be careful out there folks, the union goons, err 'police', aren't necessarily on your side.

#10 Sounds like the police are more interested in protecting the CRIMINAL than the would-be VICTIM.

By whatever means necessary, the ends justify the means. Remember that when the shooting starts, and act accordingly with appropriate and proportional malice.
