The Feds cleaned up Al Capone’s Chicago. It looks like they need to clean up (((Rahm Emanuel’s))) Windy City.
Americans voted for law and order. It’s coming.
Chicago’s problem isn’t a gun problem. It’s a blacks with guns problem.
President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday night about Chicago’s violence, saying he will “send in the Feds!” if the city “doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on.”
Trump’s tweet refers back to a line in his inaugural address Friday about “the crime, and the gangs, and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.”
A spokesman for Mayor Rahm Emanuel referred reporters to an interview on WTTW-Ch. 11 Tuesday night. Asked in that conversation about the White House website under the Trump administration citing violence in Chicago, Emanuel said that federal agencies including the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives already do help the city, but more could be done.
“There’s a lot the federal government can do,” Emanuel said, citing gun control, use of federal resources to track illegal guns and federal prosecutions. “And also, fundamentally, in my view, also help fund additional police officers.
“Over the years the federal government’s stepped back their resources, which we have stepped up. The federal government can be a partner, and to be honest they haven’t been for decades.”
In August, candidate Trump said “very top police” in Chicago had told him the city’s crime problem could be stopped in a week with tougher tactics.
The comment came in an interview with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, who had asked him how Chicago’s violence could be quelled.
“How?” said Trump. “By being very much tougher than they are right now. They’re right now not tough. I could tell you this very long and quite boring story. But when I was in Chicago, I got to meet a couple of very top police. I said, ‘How do you stop this? How do you stop this? If you were put in charge — to a specific person — do you think you could stop it?’ He said, ‘Mr. Trump, I’d be able to stop it in one week.’ And I believed him 100 percent.”
There’s a clash waiting to happen here. Emanuel is talking about liberal “solutions” to crime, such as more gun control. Trump is talking about getting tough with the scum who rule the mean streets of Chicago.
