Chicago Gun Violence: Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendent Deflect Attention from Gangs to Guns

Two corrupt, progressive liberal democrats who continue to lie to the public about the rampant crime rate in Chicago under their watch, preferring to blame anyone but the actual perpetrators of these heinous crimes …


It’s not the gangs and gangstas, it must be the guns!

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy would have you believe that the city that has one of the strictest gun laws in the nation, needs additional gun control to prevent continuing violence in the inner cities and elsewhere. Of course, these two progressive socialist democrats refuse to condemn the gangs or gangsta culture for fear of offending the minorities that form the basis of the democrat coalition of victimhood.

It was another week in slaughter alley, Chicago neighborhoods under assault by domestic terrorist gangs and the usual assortment of criminals and crazies… 


  • Two of the deaths can be attributed to one of those fine, highly-trained, unionized correctional officers who shot his Chicago Police Officer wife and then killed himself. Both parties are the type of people who the progressive socialist democrats believe should be armed.
  • Five young children, were shot from a car after being asked their gang affiliation.
  • Two people were killed in another shooting from a vehicle, believed by police to possibly belong to a relative.
  • Two men were killed by perpetrators shouting gang slogans.

Yada, Yada, Yada!  <Source>

Yes, it must be those evil guns and we must disarm law-abiding citizens leaving an even greater pool of potential victims for the gang members, criminals, and crazies. At least it is more politically correct than suggesting a crackdown on gangs and making high-profile (and dangerous) sweeps through minority neighborhoods and housing projects. Yes, stand up before the world and blame those evil guns.

And, then there is the matter of the Rahm's Chicago Police Superintendent caught lying about crime statistics …

This year, the Inspector General’s office finalized an audit of assault related crimes in the city during 2012. The audit found that “…the department under-counted aggravated assaults and batteries by more than 24 percent, based on the sample cases reviewed.” Chicago Magazine discovered examples of 10 murders, people “…who were beaten, burned, suffocated, or shot to death in 2013 and whose cases were reclassified as death investigations, downgraded to more minor crimes, or even closed as noncriminal incidents…”

In short, Police Superintendent McCarthy and department higher-ups accomplished their remarkable, 3 year reduction in crime by–to put it charitably–”…changing how certain crimes are categorized.” For example, homicides as initially reported by case officers would be quietly downgraded to non-criminal events.  Chicago Magazine reported that “…many officers of different ranks and from different parts of the city recounted instances in which they were asked or pressured by their superiors to reclassify their incident reports or in which their reports were changed by some invisible hand. One detective refers to the “magic ink:” the power to make a case disappear.” <Source: Rahm Emmanuel's Police Superintendent Caught Faking Low Homicide Rate >

Bottom line …

The progressive socialist democrats, the lying liars who lie, continue to point at guns rather than accept the hard truth that they are failing their constituents while allowing the politically-connected special interests to steal the people blind. Taking money that would improve education, housing, employment, and reduce crime and shoveling it into the unions in return for campaign funds and voter support.

Wake up people! The progressive socialist democrats are a clear and present danger to America and Americans. Barack Obama wants to release people convicted of drug offenses – forgetting most of these perpetrators plead down their charges and that non-violent status may only refer to the last crime committed.

You can’t trust these people in the House, Senate, Presidency, State Office, Municipal Office or anywhere else. Throw these corrupt socialist/communist bastards out before they actually achieve their goal of destroying America from within.
