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.

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.

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

Venezuelan Warns US: Socialism Starts by Destroying Monuments and Censoring Everything

The left’s socialist/communist’s playbook never changes. The reason is simple. It generally achieves its goal of turning free and democratic countries into totalitarian cesspools where a dictatorial government subjugates its citizens and destroys a vibrant capitalist economy all in the name of “equality.” Venezuela is one such socialist utopia.

Venezuela was once the richest and most promising country in Latin America. It has the largest oil reserves in the world, and for a long time it had a growing democracy. But today, its economic and democratic institutions have failed. While inflation skyrockets, food and medicine have become so expensive that for the country’s poor, who now make up a staggering 82 percent of the population, cannot afford to buy them. Many are reduced to eating out of garbage dumps. Theft and murder are endemic, and the ruling Maduro government keeps an iron grip on the people.

Now, Elizabeth Rogliani, an activist who was among the more than two million Venezuelans who have fled their country since dits economy collapsed, has a warning for us.

Andrés Guilarte, who remains in Venezuela, describes his perspective on what socialism will do to the United States if Americans ignore the current turmoil that is dividing the country.

Priorities: Mayor Lightfoot names committee to review public monuments across Chicago

Guess Chiraq Mayor Lightfoot has a lot of free time. Never mind the BLM rioting, looting and shootings in that city.

You know what they need?

A 20-person committee to catalog monuments and art on public land to determine which warrant attention and recommend new monuments or public art!

According to MyFoxChicago, the good mayor believes that this will “create a platform to channel our city’s dynamic civic energy to purposefully reflect our values as Chicagoans and uplift the stories of our city’s residents, particularly when it comes to the permanent memorialization of our history and shared heritage.”

Does that include this “civic energy,” Mayor?

Lightfoot also said her effort will develop a framework “for marking public space that elevates new ways to memorialize Chicago’s true and complete history.”

Here’s a glimpse of the true Chiraq:

I’m sure this new committe will solve all of their problems!

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

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.
