Chicago Officially Turned Over To Street Gangs

Post by WildCat » Sat Jun 24, 2017 2:11 am

1,000-Person Gang Party Too Big For Police In 25 Squads To Stop, Ald. Says
A raucous and "very dangerous" gang party that brought 1,000 people to a Near West Side park late Sunday was so out of control, Chicago police struggled to shut it down, one alderman said. 
Despite calling for police and politicians to address notoriously loud and sometimes violent gang parties for years, neighbors living near Touhy-Herbert Park report that this weekend's massive all-night party that spilled over into the streets was worse than ever.

The footage of the post-Father's Day party, captured in photos and on video just two blocks west of the United Center, shows hundreds of people crowding the streets, drinking, smoking and at times, fighting. As music is blasted over car stereos, women illuminated with floodlights dance on the hood of cars, and the blue lights of police squad cars flash in the background. 

One area neighbor called the out-of-control party "Armageddon." 

"Sheer madness, chaos, bedlam, insanity!!!!!" she wrote on Facebook. "It was literally like '[a] calling in the National Guard and SWAT team' situation. It was a party riot." 

"It looks like a club ... but in the street," another neighbor remarked. 

The 25 Police Department squad cars that were eventually sent to the scene weren't enough to break up the party of more than 1,000 people, said veteran 27th Ward Ald. Walter Burnett Jr., who lives in the neighborhood. 

The police were outnumbered, he said. 

"It's not just an inconvenience, it's very dangerous," Burnett said. "When you have that many people drinking, getting high, anything can happen." 

A homeowner who witnessed Sunday's "complete mayhem" agreed. 

"You had people who were boozing hardcore and were jacked up on drugs. By the time cops showed up it was just so far gone," said the man, an engineer who moved to the block in April. 

...The Police Department confirmed officers were called to the scene early Monday, but did not respond to questions about the street party or whether there were any arrests. Police claimed only one call was made to 911 at 1:30 a.m. — a claim disputed by neighbors who said they called multiple times.
Rap video made during the party...

Glad to know they are conscientious gangstas.

This is not a leading question, I am genuinely interested--was it a case of police being actually overextended, or the event considered not enough of a priority to send more resources?

I will however dispute the term "officially", based on the description.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

The police may indeed in some sense be "overextended", but the root cause of the gang problem in Chicago is that the gangs are politically connected.

This is on top of any general observation about poverty and crime, which after all exist in other neighborhoods.

The police are undermanned (thousands less than 15 years ago) and on top of that they have been neutered by Rahm who is trying to appease #BLM. So in January 2016 a whole new set of rules were placed on the police, resulting in over 80% fewer street stops and an instant increase in murder rate.

So not "officially", but de facto turned over to the gangs. The police just respond after the fact, proactive policing is dead and there's hundreds more murders to show for it.

Rahm and BLM have a lot of the same contributors.

Meanwhile, three officers involved in covering up the murder of a teen by a policeman have been indicted.

As an outside observer, I tend to agree because the one objective fact here that nobody can dispute is that murders are really up significantly and it's not just a statistical fluke or random spike. Well, someone may try to dispute that, but I think it has lasted for long enough and the change is big enough to conclude that it's no fluke, no random fluctuation.

It's not really "surrender" when they were on the same side in the first place.

We now have a pro-gang mayor, State's Attorney, and County Board president. All vowing to go easy on crime because there's "too many black and brown people in prison". Over 70 people shot last weekend, one arrest. If they do catch anyone they promptly release them, and then plea bargain the charges down to misdemeanors.

That's how they sell it to black voters, but the real reason is money.
