What Sessions started in Chicago is now going national. Local police, mayor's and DA's can't stop FEDERAL charges being used to lock up violent felons in blue areas.

ICYMI: Here's my thread from last October about how Sessions sent in the FEDS in Chicago to *ensure* violent felons who committed gun crimes were NO LONGER ALLOWED back out on the streets:

Take a minute and read this to fully grasp just how bad things got in Chicago in 2016, and how Trump/Sessions sent in the feds to essentially TAKE OVER the cities prosecution of gun crimes in 4 districts:

justice.gov/opa/pr/attorne…
How much national coverage did you see of the fact that Sessions had created a federal Gun Crime Task Force & dispatched it to Chicago?
In fact, the feds moved in to 'help' the local Chicago LEO's apprehend and PROSECUTE the gun crimes where previously these thugs always seemed to somehow as if by *magic* end up right back on the streets again.

Task Force got there in June of 2017, and got FAST RESULTS.
The results are inarguable, which is likely why the Chicago politicians like Rahm Emanuel don't talk about it.
See, the problem in Chicago wasn't that they couldn't catch the criminal gang members doing most of these shootings. It's that the LEO/legal system in the city is now so corrupt/dysfunctional they couldn't keep the violent offenders IN PRISON. Trump & Sessions moved to fix.
How bad did things get in Chicago before the feds were FORCED to come in and basically take over gun crime prosecutions so the gang members would actually BE PROSECUTED AND SENT TO PRISON AND KEPT THERE? This bad:
Hey, stellar work here, ACLU! I mean, hundreds of people died, mostly minorities, but stellar work!

Liberal progressives found a way to make policing the city even MORE impossible, so guess what happened?
See what I did there?

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.

Because ACLU.

Cops can't do their jobs, so it became open season in Chicago.
I guarantee you the LIBERAL PROGRESSIVES in power in Chicago and the ACLU see *NO F**KING CONNECTION WHATSOEVER* between that huge spike of violence/murder in Chicago in 2016 and their kneecapping their own police force.

The thought doesn't even occur to them.
I mean, HUNDREDS MORE BLACK PEOPLE GOT SHOT TO DEATH because the cops couldn't do their jobs effectively, but hey, the IMPORTANT THING HERE is no one's feelings were hurt and everyone's rights were respected. Including all the young non-white people who got shot to death.
So what happens?

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.
Because this is what happens when you put far Left Progressive idiots in charge of your city. They let criminal gangs run amok but hey at least nobody can call them insensitive or racist.

As all the black bodies pile up in the morgue.
Now, let me tell you how all the USUAL SUSPECTS locally reacted to what Sessions did.

Do you know WHY local ChiTown DA's & politicians are *especially sensitive* to the # of black violent felons sent to prison in their city?
Since *enforcing federal gun laws* against violent gang members *spiked the # of young black/Hispanic men going to prison*, you'll NEVER guess what Sessions got called for sending this task force to Chicago.
Rahm Emanuel's biggest concern while mayor of Chicago was that he demonstrate over and over again to people with a f**ked up idea of racism is that he's not a racist.

That meant coddling and even enabling a dysfunctional justice system that refused to lock up dangerous felons.
Sure, the politicians in Chicago enabled the deaths of HUNDREDS MORE MINORITIES over the past decade, but you gotta understand.

The *REALLY IMPORTANT thing is that *nobody* gets to call them racist for sending more minority gang members to prison.
So the choice became:

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

OR

2) Suppressing the # of gang members sent to prison to keep minority prison pop. low.
Think about it. You're a Progressive Dem. politician in Chicago who wants to get reelected. What's gonna get you reelected?
The past TRACK RECORD of these people running Chicago makes it clear which option they picked.

THAT is why Trump and Sessions had to move to fix what Chicago politicians wouldn't.
Federal people who don't give a RATS ASS about local racial activists screaming about how racist it is to send way more violent minority gang members to prison had to be sent in to do the job that the locals wouldn't do or weren't allowed to do.

That's how bad it got.
Nobody LOCAL moved to fix an obviously broken and dysfunctional justice system in that city because the moment they did that, the # of minority people going to prison would've JUMPED UPWARDS and they'd have been called a RACIST.
It was FAR, FAR better for these local authorities in Chicago that gangs continued to run amok on their streets and black bodies continue to pile up in their city morgue because not being called a RACIST is preferable to PROTECTING THE PUBLIC YOU SERVE.
Can you handle the brutal truth?

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.
