    Last night the CBS show 60 Minutes had a segment on Chicago and the dramatic increase in the murder rate in 2016. 50+ street gangs attempting to control the drug trade, and the police actually backing off a bit because it's a no-win situation for them. It seems to be bordering on lawless in some areas of the city.

    It seemed like a typical 60 Minutes hit piece. They find some fine, outstanding innocent black man who was caught up in a gang shootout, interview the tearful mother, then complain the police are not doing anything. No broken windows policing, no stop and frisk, instead they force a two-page questionnaire on the cops for each citizen interaction. Nothing about drugs, nothing about the revolving door at the District Attorney. Sessions will have to fire all the DAs and start over.

    Not a bad suggestion, IMO!

    Gun control works.... just don't think this is what they had in mind. I was glad to see that BLM was getting criticism about their rhetoric being dangerous and empowering criminals. When you remove the law enforcement's power base you're going to get lawlessness.

    The Liberals are getting what they were after.

    Shouldn't be a surprise.
    Will take some SERIOUS reforms to FIX it.
    OFFICERS in Chicago stay safe.
    2017 could prove to be a real screwy one.

    The claim has been for years that if there is no evidence to investigate murders in chicago were recorded as "accidents" and "suicide" in the books. How much of this is an actual increase versus an increase in reporting?

    I"m sure the LEO responses to rougher areas now waiting for backup before entering due to BLM has nothing to do with it at all.

    Had to "stop" at O'hare back in September. 3hr lay over was good for me.
    Box checked.
