Why is Violent Crime in Chicago On the Rise?

by Daveda Gruber

On Monday Metropolitan Crime Commission spokesperson Kevin Graham raised concerns over criminal justice and the undeniable lack of support for law enforcement in Chicago.

Violence is continuing but the police are not at fault for what is known as revolving door policy.

It has been reported that former Chicago police union president said, “The first problem is that when we get to the court system, we’re getting no bonds or low bonds and they’re going right back out. We’re putting people who are doing violent crime on home monitoring – on bracelets and they are out shooting people.”

Every weekend turns out to be a bad one for the “Windy City.”

On Friday evening Janari Ricks, who was only nine years old, was playing with a groups of friends when a gunman up and opened fire killing the young boy.

Chicago Police Department Chief of Operations Brian McDermott said that Ricks was unfortunately, not an intended victim. He was shot in the chest.

A $4,000.00 reward is being offered for information about the person who pulled the trigger.

Chicago Police Department Chief of Operations Brian McDermott told reporters that Ricks had aspirations of becoming a basketball player before losing his life.

The host of “One Nation with Lawrence Jones” said, “It’s ruined and no one cares about that as well.”

Closing out a violent July, this past weekend left nine people dead and an additional twenty-five people wounded.

Murders have more than doubled in Chicago in comparison with July 2019.

Graham explained that people have to be held accountable, prosecuted and held in jail, and the police need to be supported.

He went on to say, “We just had somebody who had an ankle bracelet [monitor] less than a month ago. He was out on the street and he wound up getting into a shootout with police. These are a revolving door of what’s going around the metropolitan area of Chicago.”

Violent criminals cannot be just let back on the streets. That will never solve the problems in cities ridden with crime.

It has been a problem in Democratic run cities for a long time and the problem is not going away.

We saw that during the 1990’s, crime rates in New York City dropped dramatically, even more than in the United States as a whole.

Violent crime declined by more than 56 percent in the City, compared to about 28 percent in the nation as whole. Property crimes tumbled by about 65 percent, but fell only 26 percent nationally.

There are many who attribute New York’s crime reduction to specific “get-tough” policies carried out by former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s administration.

Guiliani told the press in 1998, “Obviously murder and graffiti are two vastly different crimes. But they are part of the same continuum, and a climate that tolerates one is more likely to tolerate the other.”

I believe Guiliani had the right idea and maybe his way of reducing crime was the right way.

Check Out Melbourne’s Crazy New Stage 4 Cononavirus Lockdown Rules

Check Out Melbourne’s Crazy New Stage 4 Cononavirus Lockdown Rules

Melbourne, Australia, is going under a nearly full lockdown for the next six weeks, a phase that started Sunday and runs until Sept. 13.

Here are the rules:

  • Must stay within 5km (3 mi) radius of home.
  • Only one person from a household is allowed to shop per day.
  • No more than one hour of exercise per day and groups limited to two.
  • Recreational activity is banned.
  • Curfew from 8 p.m. until 5 p.m.

But the government officials say “you can leave your house if you are at risk of family violence or to apply for an intervention order, and to attend court or a police station,” The Guardian reports.

And masks, of course, are required.

“People must wear a mask or covering whenever leaving the house. There are a few exceptions. People with a medical reason are exempt, as are children younger than 12. Those who have a professional reason are also exempt and “if it’s just not practical, like when running”, but those people will still be expected to carry a face covering at all times ‘to wear when you can,’” the UK paper said.

The paper also had this gem about a “bonk ban”:

Can I have visitors to my house? Can I see my partner?

You cannot have visitors or go to another person’s house unless it is for the purpose of giving or receiving care. You can leave your house to visit a person if you are in an “intimate personal relationship” with them, even during curfew hours. That is, there is no “bonk ban.”

If your partner lives outside Melbourne and/or 5km of your home you can still visit them.

Cleaners, tradespeople, gardeners, painters and renovators are not allowed to visit your house for work. Exceptions exist for emergency issues like a burst pipe, and for providing care for welfare and wellbeing like Meals on Wheels.

Restaurants and cafes will be closed through Phase Four, but liquor stores somehow curb the spread as they’ll remain open for pick ups.

Oh, and all residents of the city will be banned from leaving for any reason. Plus, no one can come to Melbourne, either, unless it’s an emergency.

And finally, no weddings allowed, and funerals will be capped at 10 people in attendance.

Welcome to communism, Aussie style.
