Two weeks ago, Chicago police officers fled the city's George Floyd-related looting, by breaking into a Congressman's office and hiding out there for the night. The mayor (Lori Lightfoot) angrily cancelled time-off, and mandated 12-hour shifts for all Chicago police officers.

No one is exactly sure what the problem was this past weekend, but it looks like Chicago Police were on a work slow-down. The result, a record number of weekend shootings for 2020, and sadly, they occurred on Father's Day weekend.

CHICAGO (CBS) — On a violent Fathers Day weekend in Chicago that saw 103 people shot, and at least 13 people killed – including four teenagers and a 3-year-old boy – Chicago Police Supt. David Brown on Sunday demanded that violent offenders be kept in jail longer and that home monitoring be revamped, because “it’s not working.”

After his first weekend with a triple-digit shooting tally since taking over as Chicago’s top cop 3 months ago, Supt. David Brown resorted to traditional Police Department talking points and tried to shift blame for the violence to other parts of the criminal-justice system.

“Tears are a natural reaction to these tragic stories of violence. But we need to do more than just cry,” Brown said. “Let’s keep violent offenders in jail longer, and let’s revamp the home monitoring system. It’s not working!

I just know this — police can’t do it alone — that we need partners to be effective at protecting this city.”

The 13 homicides from Friday afternoon through Monday morning were the most of any weekend so far this year, as was the total of 103 people shot.

Of the at least 103 people shot this weekend, 12 of them were children. Five of those children or teens did not survive.

===========================
The first 5 minutest of this Martha McCallum segment is focused on the tragic deaths in Chicago over Father's Day weekend. It's obvious that Black-On-Black violence is a MUCH bigger threat to inner-city residents, than the occasional White Police Officer killing a Black Offender.


If Black Lives Matter, you would not know it by the news coverage on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC. And AL "azzhole" Sharpton was nowhere to be found.

Only FoxNews reported and discussed the weekend deaths and violence in Chicago/Minneapolis/Seattle, today. Chicago's ABC-CBS-NBC nightly news spent the first 7 minutes on Covid-19 Fear-Porn, and Donald Trump's lower-than-normal Saturday rally attendance.

Black Lives don't mean a damn thing to our local news outlets, and very little to community leaders/politicians. The one who spoke-up, blamed President Trump! (President Trump says he can stop most of the shootings in 1 week, but Chicago won't accept his offer of assistance.)

When you think about it, it's tragic how little our country's leaders care about our lives in general, except at election time.

The conversion has to open up otherwise black people are never going to get out of this revolving door in their communities of violence. Imagine being a police officer dealing with one of these areas daily. It has to be the most depressing and frustrating jobs in the world. It gets worse and worse and nobody cares. Police are not robots. They want to see improvement, hope. None of that going on. Just a daily grind of horror and tragedy. They are get treated like crap in these areas and now it has spread to the entire nation hating police. Horrible. We have to figure out what is going on and kill the violence.

Black people killing each other in the city is different; it's like tribal warfare between neighborhoods, gangs, and people who do each other dirty. Vigilantism for better or worse.



vig·i·lan·tism
/ˌvijəˈlan(t)(ē)ˌizəm/
noun
law enforcement undertaken without legal authority by a self-appointed group of people.
"the message here is not to encourage vigilantism"


It looks and is indeed hypocritical, it's unfortunate, but it is what it is and has always been that way. Does anyone have any good ideas that don't involve police that would help curb or stop it since black lives matter so much? Exactly. I say that because even when the police have full reign without a black man recently dying at the hands of white police officers, it still never changes. They're willing to risk incarceration for perceived honor.

I guess there's two types of black lives, the ones not involved in black on black disputes and ones that are. This post is merely pointing out an ugly aspect of black society that isn't new. It's so common that it doesn't get covered much in the media. If the liberal media were to focus on it, would good would that do? It's more of the same, everyone already knows that's the way it is and will basically be.

It's not productive for their agenda and what their viewers are excited about, same for Fox. I could make a post about Fox hypocrisy everyday; why they aren't covering anything that makes their interests look bad, things that may be true but aren't what their readers come to the page for.

It's a bi-polar America and people pay good money through advertisement banners and links to only get fed what they want to eat. If you're really down for your cause, you should click some links and banners everyday to generate more income. A click is 8 cents and a view is a penny.

Strong statement coming from the guy in the vid, “We need to shut down the black communities until we get it right”. I think some are seeing it for what it is. It’s a unfortunate and challenging situation nonetheless. One thing is obvious in today’s society, we’re not getting it right.

It is going to get much worse everywhere before things reverse and the liberals start begging to get peace and tranquility back again. A lot more people are going to die in the next four months from killings than died from covid since the police are being attacked. I got the guns close to the bed, even though the cops are still working here, I am prepared. How long can the cops in Michigan keep working when our governor put us six billion in debt, three more billion than should have been spent on the pandemic because she is an idiot and won't listen to the CDC and Feds. She did a horrible job on our economy here.

You Americans certainly have serious problems that nobody is addressing. Shame on your leaders in every corner...where they hide.

We can't get it right because nobody wants to discuss it. Not even their local leaders other than saying it's sad. Damn right it's sad. We know that already. Been sad for decades.

Only thing left to do is get them out of there in droves and relocate them. A program that gives them a good job in a safe area. Most of them would take it. Instead a money handout a job creation plan with training. Start building new roads, better internet pipeline, better airports. It could be done easily. Local leaders don't want that because then they lose all their voters and the pity party is over.

Hell, it's all Donald Trump's fault. And white people. White people and Donald Trump were running around Chicago over Fathers' Day weekend pulling triggers, I guess.

This part pissed me off in that news report:




Supt. David Brown resorted to traditional Police Department talking points and tried to shift blame for the violence to other parts of the criminal-justice system.


"Tried to shift blame" they say. I guess it was the police department that was running around pulling those triggers along with Donald Trump and white people.

He was not trying to shift blame; he was laying blame where it was due.

I live outside of the US and don't have plans to return anytime soon. Been talking to my mother about moving with me. I wish my son would, too. Other than those two human beings, I could not care less, at this point, if the whole damn thing just burns to the ground, I'm so fed up.

Well stated, FlyinHeadLock. If the police feel degraded by their superiors, why put themselves in harm's way? I think more of them are feeling that way in major U.S. cities.

You are exactly right with that last line, but the common denominator is......They are all Democrat run cities.
And who consistently panders for the Black and Hispanic/Latino votes?....the Democrats.
I don’t know what the right answer is but 103 separate shootings in Chicago is a complete #ing failure by the Democrat leadership there....think about it for a minute, that is a war zone.
Either there needs to be a full scale military action to end it or just pull all the police out and let them just kill each other off.
Those guys are right....why the # isn’t anyone marching there, why isn’t there any outrage for 103 shootings?
Just another day in the neighborhood I guess.

What a shame. Get rid of the color factor.

Americans are killing Americans with greater callousness than I’ve ever recalled. My heart goes out to the families there and across the country that are reeling this year.

Stay safe ATS. You and yours be well.

Crying shame, if you ask me.

It's obvious that there's a two-tier system in place for what constitutes justice and injustice.

For example, if a person is shot on the expressway, it's headline news. Particularly so if that person is an out of town visitor just driving and minding his/her own business. I think there were 15 of those shootings on Chicago expressways in 2019.

Who or what if anything is helping Chicago culture? It's the epicenter from what I am reading. Nobody stepping forward?

Some would take that, for sure. But I think right now there’s a lot who are going to completely argue against that. Some people are not looking for a hand out, just an equal chance to climb up the ladder. Had I not seen it happen to a couple co-workers of mine, I wouldn’t have realized it was as easy as it was for the guy in charge to pull it off. That’s a story for a different thread and I’m not saying it’s the norm, but if I saw it happen, after years of hearing it talked about, I certainly can’t deny it’s an issue.

Resolving that is not going to be easy. In my situation, only 2 people needed to be involved to allow it to happen. We might be a few generations too young to get where everyone feels equal. There will always be exceptions, but I’m confident we can better than where we are.

You can't make it better with talk here.

It's too bad gentleman like him are not the more high-profile "leaders". The ones who have the authority to ensure that most of the carnage is brought to an end.

72% of Chicago's murders transition into unsolved cold-cases, even when the shooter's identity is known, due to multiple cameras and also tips from residents.

President Trump needs to pull out his, "If Chicago officials won't stop the shootings, I'll do it for them". Those residents who are in harm's way would appreciate it. Inept city and police officials wouldn't, but that's too bad.
