Law and Order Breaking Down in Chicago as Mob Forces Cop To Free Suspect

In the 1997 movie “L.A. Confidential,” one character said of a police sergeant who was enduring a grueling situation: “I wouldn’t trade places with (him) right now for all the whiskey in Ireland.”

It’s easy to echo that sentiment in regard to Chicago police officers.

As if the city’s maddening number of homicides isn’t enough of a burden, actor Jussie Smollett — on whom Chicago law enforcement had wasted considerable resources and countless hours — was inexplicably cleared of all charges in an apparent hate-crime hoax.

And now, we’ve come to discover, it seems Chicago police can’t even arrest a drug suspect without being harassed or threatened by a menacing crowd.

The Chicago Tribune reported earlier this month that a pair of officers struggled to control rowdy onlookers as one man resisted arrest and another ran off while carrying drugs.

The group “implied that they had weapons” and made threats, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Tribune.

“Out of an abundance of caution, he backs away from the arrestee. An individual comes and grabs the arrestee and another individual comes and grabs the narcotics,” Guglielmi added.

Fence off the city. Do weekly or biweekly airdrops. Airdrop lots of guns and ammo. Airdrop 1/3 as much food as needed. Airdrop 1/10 as much alcohol and tobacco as would normally be consumed. Create youtube channel

They just need a Red Flag law so they can skip due process and go confiscate those naughty boy’s weapons.

I’m sure that Chicongo PD officers are just waiting for the chance to go knock on their doors.

You and I think alike. There comes a time when you just have to step back and let the “natural selection process” operate. I think this “process” would also have “application” for Mecca and Medina. It those places though, there should be a huge “infusion” of live pigs just prior to the “introduction” of automatic weapons. Then someone fire a random shot and watch the carnage unfold.

When lawlessness is excused, the lawlessness increases.

Immediately.

Logarithmically.

Chicago, based on what I see and read, is a wall-to-wall free-fire zone. The city is out of control and a totally lawless hellscape. I don’t know how anybody lives there, or, really how anyone lives within 25 miles of that place.

I hear they have to patch bullet holes in that “bean” sculpture about once per week.

Interesting in a fractal sort of way, how this encounter mimics events in foreign policy. When Bush led us into the Mideast chaos in force, it turned sour pretty quickly. Like cops entering a bad neighborhood to respond to a crime, better get in, get the collar and get out before the locals gather and turn ugly on your ass.

Never mind that they should be glad to have you restore some peace and order; they don’t think that way and really, don’t much want it.

Libs make the cops stand down so chaos reigns supreme. Then sharia comes to the rescue. They are doing this in Seattle very successfully.

I have family members who live in suburbs that are quiet, love!y, low crime areas. I think almost all of the violent crimes are committed in certain parts of the inner city. Look, Jussie Smollett went out alone, for a sandwich at 2:00 a.m. No one would do that unless it was safe to do so. Oh...wait...Nope. No one would do that unless it was safe to do so.
