I just put that HUGE SPIKE in violent crimes/murder that occurred in 2016 in context of the Chicago police now making only half as many arrests as they did in 2011.
Cops can't do their jobs, so it became open season in Chicago.
The thought doesn't even occur to them.
So Trump & Sessions have to send in federal agency help to FORCE the city of Chicago to save itself from the criminal gangs that are running amok there, terrorizing the black community and just about everybody else.
As all the black bodies pile up in the morgue.
Do you know WHY local ChiTown DA's & politicians are *especially sensitive* to the # of black violent felons sent to prison in their city?
That meant coddling and even enabling a dysfunctional justice system that refused to lock up dangerous felons.
The *REALLY IMPORTANT thing is that *nobody* gets to call them racist for sending more minority gang members to prison.
1) Send hundreds of young black/Hispanic gang members to prison in your city & get voted out of office when the Progressive Left calls you a racist
2) Suppressing the # of gang members sent to prison to keep minority prison pop. low.
THAT is why Trump and Sessions had to move to fix what Chicago politicians wouldn't.
That's how bad it got.
Because that's what it is. That's the explanation for Chicago being a war zone.
And that's why the Feds had to come in.
End of story.
