FBI is going into the deep crime areas of Chicago.

They will establish task forces and intel gathering operations.

They will attempt "community outreach efforts" for purposes of "trust".

I say they will fail.


FBI Deployed To The Streets of Chicago

That effort involves three major areas:

– The creation in 2016 of a homicide task force—in addition to the FBI’s existing violent crimes squad—in which agents work alongside CPD detectives and other law enforcement officers to assist in solving the city’s murder cases;

– Increased intelligence-gathering efforts to identify shooters and “directors of violence,” which includes embedding FBI analysts at CPD headquarters; and

– Stepping up community outreach efforts to gain the public’s trust and enlist their help in solving crimes and making communities safer.

“Simply put,” said CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson, “the FBI has more resources than we do. We combine the resources we have with the ones they have to fight these crimes.”

As long as the FBI hands out drugs and guns to the gangs I'm sure they will "trust" them.

The only thing the FBI is going to be handing out to these rag-tag thug wannabes is rubber bullet kisses and long prison sentences.

Good riddance.

“The flow of guns into Chicago is just insane,” he said. “You will find that gang members would rather be caught with a gun by law enforcement than caught without one by their rivals. What we have to do through legislation is create a mentality where gang members won't want to pick up a gun,” he explained. “You create that by holding them accountable for their actions. We simply don't do a good job of that right now.”


You're never going to make jail a less appealing choice than death. The root cause of this violence, just like with alcohol in Prohibition Era Chicago, is the over-inflated prices of black market drugs.

This blog or whatever it is straight up copied without sourcing this story from FBI.gov. lol

Good, its high time there was serious action to confront the standing army of various violent gangs which is almost 100,000 strong cross all areas of the city. These gangs are a threat to the sovereignty of the US within the municipal borders of Chicago. Many citizens in the area occupied by these terrorists are deprived of their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Guys?

Should we be applauding the feds coming into cities to "police" crime?

Setting a scary precedent here. . . . .

No, ask those in Waco how the FBI outreach goes.

Would you like freedom or security? How much is comfort worth?

Ignore the problem and treat the symptom.

Its about damned time someone did something about the rampant crime. So unless you're one of the soon-to-be-locked-up criminals, i suggest you just applaud for the upholders of the law. Far too often are people fighting against law enforcement, because it's "cool" to be a sjw and say things like "kill cops"

Here in reality, some people would rather not have to worry about going to the corner store and being shot because youre out in the wrong neighborhood, or something of the like.

While you're out complaining about alleged "police brutality" more and more criminals are not being served justice because the law enforcement are afraid of possible backlash from doing their job.

Agree that its a slippery slope. But there has to be a threshold somewhere and in Chicago it was passed a long time ago. I say do this in every city where they average more than 2 homicides per week from gang activity.

They've already been there. The FBI and DEA have been crawling over Chicago. And a lot of times investigating both the gangs and CPD.


Michael Anderson, special agent in charge, FBI Chicago:
“What you are seeing and will continue to see in Chicago is a sustained FBI effort to support and supplement our local partners.”


Incidentally, this SA Anderson was interviewed to replace James Comey.

How you figure? The FBI is always involved in local jurisdictions when it falls within their scope. Such as tackling extremely high homicide in a municipality rife with organized crime and drug trafficking. It is actually quite normal, and it is likely the BATF and DEA are also working there together to assist the local PD with matters that are clearly beyond their means and resources.

Now if this was some sleepy backwater town with a murder rate of 1 per 100,000 every 5 years or so, that would be somewhat concerning. But if you simply visit their individual field office press pages, you would notice they are present in pretty much every urban center in America working alongside the local PD. Been that way for decades.

There is no functional gang crime unit in chicago. Bigger balls are needed. If fbi will arrest gang leaders, crime of all kinds will decrease.

Sounds like the FBI needs to arrest the people in Gang Crime unit.


Something is a miss in ol'Chicago.

After studying John Locke in a college government class many many years ago (when colleges still taught all perspectives), that statement above convinced me that we need the death penalty. For some, its the only thing that is threatening. Prison is a step-up in quality of life for many.

Thanks for the memory

The only place here for the F.B.I. is cleaning up the crooked Northern IL politics and often corrupted police forces. They are obviously in over their heads.
Amusingly though, 1 alphabet agency trying to clean up a mess that may have been started by another... "Isn't it ironic, don't ya think?"

I see the justification and the rationale behind the feds coming in.

I also see the failure of the city and state to do the job.

I'm just not very trusting of government.
