    Must be the 'practice' run-up for what 'dey hoods gonna b like' after de-fundment occurs and there are no cops left to respond to 9-1-1 calls.

    'Course there won't be any 9-1-1 'emergency' calls nor operators to take them. At best you'll have a NEW non-emergency number to call (1-1-9), and they'll send out a de-escalation-certified Social Worker, .... maybe the next day when the smoke clears. :popcorn:

    Crime scene? What's that? Only 'police' have crime scenes. Thing of the past ...

    The certified SW will perform non-provocatory 'interviews' (not investigate) and hand-out free lattes in gratitude for the opportunity to engage in a humanistic way with Cornpop and the other resident 'bangers. :upeyes:

    Democrats probably have a hard time hiding the glee they feel. They love mayhem. The Democrat media will do the job of spinning this as Republican's fault. Change by any means possible.

    Never let a crisis go to waste. How do you think they stay in control in Chicago?

    What I think? I will tell you. The facts will be presented in books when the principals can no longer sue for libel. The movies will be made when the ugliness can be glorified by period customs worn by Hollywood actors.

    The reality is that there is a struggle (competition) by people to provide substances, sex, and power that are deemed illegal. The people who compete - let's call them gangsters. They supply money to law enforcement, the courts, and politicians for protection. Mr. Capone was glorified in movies. That is how he operated. There have also been Chinese gangs, Japanese gangs, Negro gangs forever.

    The younger participants need to make names for themselves - so they try to outdo themselves in ruthlessness.

    When I was a pre-teener, I commented on an upcoming election for Sheriff in a dry Mississippi County as being a contest as to who would control the illegal alcohol trade in the county.

    Our governor apparently isn't too concerned with the continued killing in shicago, but he is concerned and has made something of a threat toward insurance companies to pay out real quick on damage.
    It is ok to damage a lot of stuff, as long as "somebody" pays for it.

    I think they set the record back on May 31 with 18 dead in 24 hours.
    This is a new record!

    They need to defund the police quickly, or there won’t be anybody left in the city !

    What might happen is what happened with East Palo Alto back the day. A whole generation just wipes themselves out. The only ones left standing were the ones willing to work. Then Ikea swept in and gave them jobs. Then Amazon, Home Goods, and other businesses opened up.

    Lots and lots of good Trauma Care treatment going on in those hospitals in the Windy City. Practice makes perfect.

    So they got THAT going for them...

    Isn't this the same community which Hussein Obama spent his career organizing?

    It happens. About 45 years ago, I was in Corleone, Sicily. No one goes there. I was visiting the late wife's relatives who lived in the hills. No young men my age. All killed. The constabulary came by and asked why I was there and was told just visiting relatives of the wife.

    Chicago residents just don't have things under control with just one or two drug lords. The local drug dealers seem to do a good job of policing themselves. Unfortunately, bystanders will get in the way some times.

    Well, if you deduct the time spent at a law firm being supervised by his future wife, it might have been a couple months before he got the job at the law firm. Not really a career though.
