Demorat-run Chiraq: As murders/crime soar, judges are freeing more violent-crime suspects on electronic monitoring

From MyFoxChicago: Judges in Chicago have increasingly ordered criminal defendants placed into an electronic-monitoring program in lieu of jail, a move police officials blame for the surge in gun violence plaguing the city.

On Aug. 9, 43 people facing murder charges were enrolled in Cook County’s electronic-monitoring program, a 40% increase from the same day last year. In addition, 160 people charged with robbery and 1,000 people charged with illegal gun possession are enrolled as of Aug. 9, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The Chicago Police Department has cited the increase in program participants who would otherwise be granted high bail or remanded to police custody for the spike in gunplay.

“My hope is that the deaths of these young people will not be in vain and will prick the hearts of the decision-makers who release violent offenders on electronic monitoring back into these very communities to mete out this kind of violence every weekend,” police Superintendent David Brown said after a bloody Independence Day weekend during which two children, ages 7 and 14, were killed.

None of the three of the men charged in the shooting death of 7-year-old Natalia Wallace over the holiday weekend was ordered into the monitoring program, according to the newspaper. However, the department gave the Times several examples of defendants charged with violent crimes who committed more offenses while subject to electronic monitoring.

One is Chrishawn Thomas, 18, who is accused of robbing a female driver in March at gunpoint. He was granted $500 bail and placed on electronic monitoring. Weeks later, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office received an “unauthorized leave” alert related to Thomas.

Hours later, he allegedly shot an off-duty Chicago police officer during an attempted robbery. The officer returned fire and hit Thomas in the legs. Thomas was arrested and is being held without bail.

People typically placed on electronic monitoring are usually required to stay home with exceptions typically made for school or work.

Judge Timothy Evans and Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx

Chief Cook County Judge Timothy Evans said judges “must balance the right of the defendant to be presumed innocent with any evidence that the defendant would pose a real and present threat to the physical safety of any person.”

The number of people released from detention and into monitoring has increased because of the coronavirus pandemic, the newspaper reported. Correctional facilities throughout the country have similarly reduced their inmate populations in an effort to prevent infections.

Peons in Chicago aren’t equal to the Good Mayor Lori Lightfoot as she bans protests on HER street

Chiraq is a dangerous place these days. Even for the police. See the following:

This is Chiraq under Mayor Lightfoot’s watch: 139% jump in murders, uptick in shootings in July 2020
Chicago Mayor Lightfoot blames everyone but herself for BLM riots/looting
Chicago Mayor Lightfoot blames shootings on guns from states with “virtually no gun control”

You know who doesn’t have to worry about rioting, looting or shootings (she has 24/7 police protection)? The mayor as she’s BANNED protests on her street. The police apparently authorized this and will arrest anyone who refuses to leave her street in the Logan Square neighborhood. Details from MSN:

“The police directive surfaced in a July email from then-Shakespeare District Commander Melvin Roman to officers under his command. It did not distinguish between the peaceful protesters Lightfoot regularly says she supports and those who might intend to be destructive, but ordered that after a warning is given to demonstrators, “It should be locked down.”

Since the order, and even for a time just prior to its writing, Chicago cops have repeatedly blocked protesters’ access to the block with groups of officers and barricades. Police have often kept protesters contained at the nearby corner of Kimball and Wrightwood avenues, though one standoff between activists and officers last month saw police go as far as bringing in an armored vehicle in case things got out of hand.

Some neighbors in the Logan Square area have complained about the city’s approach to protests around Lightfoot’s house, which at times has included checking residents’ IDs before letting them close. Ron Kaminecki, a 69-year old patent attorney and bike shop owner who lives on Bernard Street a few houses from Lightfoot, said some neighbors have been frustrated by the police presence and barricades.

“I came up with the name ‘Fort Lori’ because it’s so hard to get in and out,” Kaminecki said.

In response to questions from the Tribune, police said state law and Chicago’s municipal code prohibit protests in residential areas.”

Mayor Lightfoot defended her actions saying, “I have a right to make sure that my home is secure.”

This is Chiraq: 21 shot on Wednesday

Chiraq operating as normal during the Wuhan virus…

From MyFoxChicago: wenty-one people were wounded Wednesday in shootings across Chicago. It is the third time in four days that more than 20 people have been shot in the city.

Six people were hurt in one attack in Gresham on the South Side.

The group was outside about 11:30 p.m. at “a large gathering” in the 8500 block of South Parnell Avenue when someone fired shots, Chicago police said.

A 29-year-old man was struck in the neck and back and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition, police said. Another man, 37, was struck in the head and taken to the same hospital, also in critical condition.

Three other victims were all in fair condition at the University of Chicago Medical Center, police said. A 17-year-old boy was grazed in the head, while two men, 21 and 29, were struck in the back and leg, respectively. Another man, 28, was shot in the arm and taken to St. Bernard Hospital, where he was also in fair condition.

Read the whole story here.

Fifteen people were shot on Tuesday and 21 were shot on Monday as well. And 64 were shot last weekend.

Shocker, not: Chicago police retiring at twice the normal rate

Can you blame them with the defund the police movement and Mayor Lightfoot’s “leadership” skills (see examples here and here).

According to MyFoxChicago, Chicago Police personnel have been retiring at twice the usual rate recently, which could leave the city streets short of officers.

They report that at least 110 police officers are retiring in August and September, and retirements in 2020 are projected to be higher than the past couple of years.

The vice president of the board of trustees for the Policemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago partially blames this on a change in health insurance benefits.

Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

I think we know what is the actual driving force behind Chicago Police retirements. Might have something to do with this?

Read the whole story here.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best recently announced her retirement due to “lack of respect for her and her officers.”

Just recently over 20 percent of Minneapolis police officers applied for permanent disability mostly related to PTSD after the George Floyd rioting.

And in NYC, which is experiencing a high rate of rioting, looting and crime, NYPD retirements are surging.

I’m sensing a pattern here in demorat-run cities…

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot blames everyone but herself for BLM riots/looting

On Sunday night, BLM agitators clashed with police as rioters vandalized stores in downtown Chicago, with officers returning fire after being targeted by gunfire.

More than 100 people were arrested and 13 officers wounded as rioters smashed windows and looted high-end stores, authorities said.

Read the whole story here.

On Monday, Mayor Lori Lightfoot gave a press conference wherein she proceeded to blame “gun control laws.”

Unless you live under a rock, you’ll know that the current strict gun control laws in Chiraq do NOTHING to stop the regular, double-digit weekend shootings in that town.

The good mayor then went on to blame Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx due to her lack to file criminal charges against looters. As MyFoxChicago reported, Foxx fired back:

“The state’s attorney claims the relatively small number of looters who faced any charges after the destruction in late May and early June is a police problem and that it has not encouraged more looting.”

Read that whole story here.

Then hours later, Mayor Lightfoot stated she had a “productive call” with Kim Foxx and they are “committed” to seeing that these looting criminals are brought to justice. Don’t hold your breath.

I guess it’s a shell game as to who is responsible for the violence in that town. But we all know who is ultimately responsible, including those who elected this failure of a mayor.

This is Chiraq under Mayor Lightfoot’s watch: 139% jump in murders, uptick in shootings in July 2020

There isn’t anyway to sugarcoat this: Demorat-controlled Chiraq is a very, very dangerous place to live right now.

The city has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation. Yet it is obvious criminals don’t follow the law. Proof from MyFoxChicago:

“Murders and shootings reported last month in Chicago increased drastically from July 2019, but overall crime in the city decreased, according to data released by Chicago police.

The 105 murders reported in July mark a nearly 139 percent increase from the 44 reported in July 2019, while the 406 shooting incidents are a 75 percent increase from the 232 last July, according to figures in a statement from police Saturday.

So far this year, murders are up 51 percent compared to the period from January through July 2019, along with a 47 percent increase in shootings, police said.”

Read the whole story here.

There’s also this: “Number of Chicago shooting victims under 10 years old triples from last year.”

And take a WILD guess as to who is responsible for these shootings, according to the good mayor Lori Lightfoot:

UNREAL.

People of Chicago: YOU MUST WAKE UP!

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot blames shootings on guns from states with “virtually no gun control”

Funny how you never hear about the regular occurence of double-digit, weekend shootings/murders from cities in the states of Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa. You’d think those states with “virtually no gun control laws” would have a higher amount of shootings than the strict, gun-controlled city of Chiraq.

This is what Chiraq looks like under Mayor Lightfoot’s watch: ARMED 10-year-old kids committing carjackings

Chiraq had a mass shooting last night: 14 shot during ambush near funeral home in Chicago, many in critical condition. According to the mayor, “too many guns are on our streets and in the hands of people who should never possess them.”

Meanwhile, Mayor Lori Lightfoot continues to fight for the safety of her citizens President Trump on Twitter. Her city has become so dangerous that people are afraid to leave their houses for fear of being shot or the victim of a carjacking by ARMED 10-year-old CHILDREN.

As MyFoxChicago reports (Originally from Chicago Sun Times, 7/20/20, 6:08 CDT, in Calumet Heights [South Side community area of Chicago,] Cook County, Illinois):

Chicago police say a group of children, ages 10 to 17, carjacked Alyssa Blanchard and at least 15 other people since late June — wreaking havoc on Blanchard’s generally peaceful South Side neighborhood.

“I’m scared to use my garage. I don’t feel safe in my neighborhood,” said Blanchard, an elementary school teacher at Chicago Public Schools.

Blanchard was carjacked July 14 while returning home in the early evening. As she pulled into her alley garage on South Kingston Avenue, she noticed a vehicle and three or four children come toward her. Two children armed with handguns pointed them to her head and ordered her out of her BMW, she said. One child looked as young as 11, she said.

“It was so instantaneous … I was just scared for my life. I thought, ‘this is it,’” she said.

Police published a community alert Sunday evening warning of 14 other carjackings tied to the children. According to the alert, the children are committing the carjackings at a greater frequency, with six carjackings reported just last Saturday.”

This is what Chiraq looks like under Mayor Lightfoot’s watch

Along with regular weekend double-digit shootings, Chiraq has devolved into this:

The day after the above scene, the police union is asking President Trump for help because the mayor won’t stop the rioters and violent thugs. From MyFoxChicago: “Chicago police union wants Trump to intervene as video seems to shows protesters rioters throwing things at cops.”

And while Mayor Lightfoot IS being derelict in her duty to provide law and order in her city, she’s got her priorities straight:

What a disgrace this mayor is.
