“The Death of Chicago”
A robbery crew targeted people along the Lakefront Path near Belmont Harbor yesterday afternoon—repeatedly tossing bikes in front of oncoming bicyclists in an effort to knock people down so they could be robbed according to multiple witnesses and one known victim.
How did this happen? How did the north side become so violent? Heather MacDonald, writing for the Wall Street Journal tells us.
Why would anyone continue to live in such a ****hole? Why does anyone put up with the wildings on Michigan Avenue, assaults near North Avenue on the beach, problems at Navy Pier and now, it appears, the inability to ride a bike worth more than $100 on the Lakefront path — unless you want to be assaulted and robbed.
Time to leave folks, if you’re one of the producers, and let the city implode into a writhing mass of dependency, rot, ruin and crime.”
Someone was shot in Chicago every 150 minutes during the first five months of 2016. Someone was murdered every 14 hours, and the city saw nearly 1,400 nonfatal shootings and 240 fatalities from gunfire.The police are staying in their cars and leaving the criminals alone.
The growing mayhem is the result of Chicago police officers’ withdrawing from proactive enforcement, making the city a dramatic example of what I have called the Ferguson effect. Since the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in August 2014, the conceit that American policing is lethally racist has dominated media and political discourse, from the White House on down. Cops in minority neighborhoods in Chicago and other cities have responded by backing away from pedestrian stops and public-order policing; criminals are flourishing in the vacuum.”
On Jan. 1 the department rolled out a new form for documenting investigatory stops to meet ACLU demands. The new form, called a contact card, was two pages long, with 70 fields of information to be filled out. This template dwarfs even arrest reports and takes at least 30 minutes to complete. Every card goes to the ACLU for review.It sounds like Denninger is right. If you live in the Chicago area it’s time to get out – for the safety of you and your family.
The arrangement had the intended deterrent effect: Police stops dropped nearly 90% in the first quarter of 2016.”
