    It's hard to deal with reality when you have to look at it through PC-colored glasses. Pity the cops who have to deal with the frustration of knowing EXACTLY what needs to be done only to be told that's EXACTLY what can't be done.

    If this wasn't so tragic for decent people in Chicago, I'd be laughing my butt off and jumping up and down hoping my lib acquaintances start getting the message. Venezuela North?

    What could ever be done to stop this violence?...

    That was rhetorical, for the record.

    After years of mis handling the crime and blaming police tactics, the motto of the Police dept is “Stay Fetal”. That way you won’t get fired for a paperwork mistake.

    The Hubris these people exude is mammoth....first the "new" Mayor has the best grasp of the obvious I have seen lately...secondly...how arrogant for Michael Bloomberg to offer Anyone advice on how to run their city...perhaps his advice should better be labeled "How to equip mayors to Ruin their cities"

    Maybe if the mayor could come up with more forms for police officers to complete after every thing they do, she'll get better results.

    Tie their hands, criticize them for everything they do, then complain about the results. Now that is a democrat.

    The "We need less guns and more police" rhetoric is coming. I guarantee it.

    the "leadership" will never admit their mistakes and continue to dig even deeper holes. at some point the decent people will rise up and physically stop the criminal element dead in their tracks.............don't see any other eventual solution.

    Former Chicagoan here. What you said plus simultaneously enact constitutional carry of a firearm for all law abiding Illinoisans. Effective immediately.

    This will likely come up at the next Democratic debate. The Democratic answer is always more draconian gun laws for the law abiding, leaner sentences for the criminals, and spending more money.

    that is true. unfortunately chicago with the huge population seems to speak for Illinois and make people think the whole state is a cesspool.

    We left there in ‘99 so maybe things have changed, BUT I worked with a guy in the National Guard. We were talking one day at lunch and he complained that he and the rest of his unit couldn’t take their service weapons within city limits. And most of them couldn’t get CCW. I asked him what the plan was if there was a natural disaster or widespread unrest and they got called up. He just laughed and said “good luck”.

    Let the police have a "Slow Down."

    The law of the jungle will eventually prevail.

    Blaming the police... that's so insane. Guess what? I haven't laid eyes on a police officer where I live in several WEEKS and yet the thought has never occurred me to grab a gun and murder my friends.

    Just how long does it take for people to learn that voting has consequences.

    Big city with the left in charge, surprise, surprise, surprise. A lot of other big cities trying to catch up with Chicago. Dallas for one. D A, not gonna prosecute crimes under 750.00, Police chief(Ex-Detroit Chief), need to provide more opportunities blah blah blah. Dallas won't do what's necessary to maintain the police force. It only gets worse and the people keep voting for democrats...............................What you gonna do?

    I would like to see the police of all liberal cities go on strike, leaving each city absolutely defenseless. The police can return when all liberal policies are absolished, and all liberal politicians are voted out of office. The populations of liberal cities need to be taught a lesson. Like not to elect a black racist lesbian.
