Next week, Obama is set to give a big speech (for the quadrillionth time) in Chicago next week. I’m sure he’ll keep saying how great his presidency was, and it was also so scandal-free too. Certainly the MSM will be teary-eyed over their god leaving office. On the other hand, I’ll be dancing a celebratory jig.
Yet, one inconvenient fact–which probably won’t even be included in his speech–is how bad the black-on-black violence is in Chicago. The numbers have jumped up by 58 percent in the last year. Of course, Obama won’t address it head on.
And, according to the Washington Examiner, former Superintendent of Police in Chicago, Garry McCarthy is speaking out about what he thinks is the real reason there’s so much violence and death in the black community.
Former Chicago Superintendent of Police Garry McCarthy said Sunday that the Black Lives Matter movement was ultimately responsible for rising crimes rates in his city and nationally because it was making it harder for police to do their jobs.
McCarthy said that the movement was responsible for a rise in “noncompliance” — people refusing to cooperate or surrender to police.
“What is happening is — and this is ironic — that a movement with the goal of saving black lives is at this point is getting black lives taken because 80 percent of our murder victims here in Chicago are male blacks,” McCarthy told New York radio talk show host John Catsimatidis.
I believe McCarthy. Why? Because he was fired by Obama’s friend, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. The reason was a situation where dashcam footage did not corroborate officer account of a fatal police encounter with a suspect who happened to be black.
The BLM thugs got wind and made it seem as if all cops were out to kill black people. So, now, police throughout the country don’t want to do anything that may put them in the national spotlight.
Do Democrats wonder about black-on-black violence? Probably not because they can use the violence to make more empty promises. Let’s hope the BLM will eat itself in 2017.
