President Elect Trump addressed the Chicago shooting problem in a Tweet to Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

He says Emanuel should ask for Federal help !!

What does "Federal help" mean ?

The article says Chicago confiscated over 8,000 guns in 2016.


Trump blasts Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel for record-setting 762 homicides and 4,331 shooting victims in 2016 and says he 'must ask for Federal help' if he can't fix Windy City

Donald Trump used his Twitter bully pulpit on Monday to blast Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for allowing his city's murder and firearms shooting rates to spiral out of control.

'Chicago murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016,' Trump tweeted.

'If Mayor can't do it he must ask for Federal help!'

2016 was one of the most violent years in Chicago history with the most homicides in two decades – more than New York and Los Angeles combined.

The nation's third largest city also saw 1,100 more shooting incidents last year than it did in 2015, according to data released Sunday by the Chicago Police Department.




Ask for "federal help" Wow, come on people , Trump is a DUMB ASS!


LOL, Federal Help!!! ROFL

IMHO...If Rahm Emanuel abides by Trump's call for him to ask for Federal help? I believe Trump will declare martial law on the low income districts of Chicago [along with other cities like Baltimore, Maryland], then he'll send in the National Guard with tanks an loaded weapons, and start a war of attrition with the cold bloodied murder of the Black and Latino gangs [With Trump's past Tweet: Trump praising the Phillippine president Duterte for the malicious murder of thousands of drug addicts, drug dealers and gang members] --- THEN WHEN ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE!!!
Maybe this madman [Trump] will be impeached --- But I'm not holding my breath.

So lets see...Chicago is nearly a war zone. There are good people trapped by the political and economic local, liberal government and can't escape the killing. The same government has decided to ignore federal law and allow illegals, including criminals to run rampant. And you assume that Trump wants to go in with the National Guard to clear out the killers...and that is somehow wrong?

Maybe you should take a trip to the area, walk the streets with your wife and children in tow and introduce yourself to the poor people who have to hide behind window shades, in darkened rooms and avoid stray bullets. Maybe you should rent yourself an apartment there for a month and THEN decide if you need some help...not from the local government who thinks everything is butterflies and roses, but from a police force that can get rid of the criminal element, provide a real future for the law abiding people and clean up the democratic corruption that created this little piece of Hell.

Maybe you should wait and judge the man (Trump) by his actions instead of the leftist propaganda that has been shoved down your throat by the same people allowing the murders in Chicago?

If you are found guilty of a crime where you used a gun, then it should be the death penalty.

That would curb it.



Please stop being an idiot.

I remember a story from a couple years a go where a guy was convicted of a felony for discharging a weapon because his house was robbed. When he found the guy robbing his neighbor he put one round in the dirt waiting for police. Yeah, we should definitely have a public hanging for him.

Aren't most of these shooting related to fights between the gangs dealing and stealing drugs, a major money making activity.

It's a smaller, localized version of what more powerful countries and persons are doing in the world.

It's money and the need to project power to control the money operations.

Are laws being enforced?

Seems to me, if criminals aren't afraid of the consequences of their actions, then they would see no reason to change.


Yes and No

Right now, Chicago Police are not really looking for offenders ahead of time.

They act as reactionaries only.

Lawsuits are the problem.




Aren't you the one that's posted more than once about CPD's "black site" program?

But now you're blaming lawsuits for the corruption in CPD?

Seriously?!?



The Homan Square facility is for people being interrogated and/or arrested.

Strictly reactionary.

And that "program" has slowed down too because of the recent highlighting.

Sounds like you are a big reactionary too.



Chicago sued for 'unconstitutional and torturous' Homan Square police abuse



My god, you actually responded to somebody calling you out. Will wonders never cease?

Pointing out your duality is hardly reactionary, Xue. In fact, in one of your threads about it you used the line "Big Government, Big Police" to highlight your opinion on CPD and Homan Square. Yet now you're singing a different tune and blaming something else entirely for CPD's shortcomings.

Hilarious.

Perhaps if you keep repeating the same things over and over it'll be true one day.

An I'm correct in assuming that you would prefer a police state in the U.S. over a democratic one? Let the chips fall where they may, and you'll probably know what side I'll be on.


Don't let perfect be the enemy of good, or you might find that free fire zones are detrimental due to collateral damage.

I am going to be there tomorrow. Last time I was in 5 people got shot. Coincidence?


I am not trying to be cheeky here, but are you suggesting that either you shot them or they were shot because you were there?

It's time for Donald Trump to initiate a Federal Order, or something. Eleven people shot in Chicago over the past 13 hours today.

It's crazy that you can refresh this Chicago Tribune page every hour, and the listing grows.
