    I'm not crying about it, Cigar. I was wondering why you're not. Oh, that's right. You're a dirtbag who picks and chooses which tragedies to exploit.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Chicago Police Only Solve One in Every 20 Shootings...

    Report: Chicago Police Only Solve One in Every 20 Shootings
    AUGUST 9, 2018 - A University of Chicago Crime Lab analysis of Chicago police records found that the department cleared just 5% of shootings in 2016, a year in which violence hit records unseen in two decades.
    After 74 people were shot over one of the city’s most violent weekends in more than two years, Chicago police said they would flood the city’s crime-wracked neighborhoods with hundreds more cops while acknowledging that no arrests for those shootings had been made as of late Tuesday. A day earlier, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and police Superintendent Eddie Johnson had pleaded with the community to come forward with information to hold people accountable for the carnage, including 12 fatalities. “You all know who these individuals are,” a frustrated Johnson said at one point. “If you know who did this, be a neighbor, speak up,” Emanuel added. But the Police Department’s struggle to solve violent crime or earn the cooperation of residents is not a new problem — nor one that will be solved quickly, said experts, cops and law enforcement leaders alike on Tuesday.


    The fear and discomfort in reporting on neighbors is real and so, too, is the distrust in a department that is in an epic struggle to repair frayed and broken relationships with minority communities, they said. “I think it is disheartening that we are at Tuesday after the weekend we had without anyone being charged,” Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told the Tribune in a phone interview. “The feeling that people can do this with impunity makes the work that much more difficult.” On Tuesday, the Police Department refused to release current data on how many homicides and shootings it solves — known as clearance rates — telling the Tribune to file a Freedom of Information Act request. But past data collected by the Tribune show the department’s clearance rate for homicides has been declining in recent years, hitting about 17 percent last year. That number doesn’t represent convictions or even arrests for homicides but rather cases in which the department identifies a suspect, regardless of whether that person is ever charged.



    Chicago police investigate a shooting on West Lake Street near North Kostner Avenue in Chicago, Ill. on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2018.




    Even fewer of Chicago’s hundreds of shootings each year are solved. A University of Chicago Crime Lab analysis of Chicago police records found that the department cleared just 5 percent of shootings in 2016, a year in which violence hit records unseen in two decades. In a year when shootings have fallen 17 percent citywide and homicides by even more, the violence between 3 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Monday was a jolt. Many of the shootings took place in three West Side police districts and one on the South Side, officials said. According to Tribune data, it marked the worst violence of any single weekend in Chicago since at least before 2016. And Sunday saw more victims shot in a single day since at least September 2011, when the Tribune began tracking every shooting in Chicago. For the entire day, 47 people were shot, including a stunning 40 during a seven-hour period early Sunday.


    Johnson, who said the shootings were mostly rooted in gang conflicts, on Tuesday said the department has immediately deployed an additional 430 officers to the neighborhoods most wracked by the shooting. Those numbers will grow to an additional 600 officers on the weekend. “We’ll be there as long as it takes,” Johnson said. “We have a responsibility to keep these folks safe.” He said officers working the extra hours would have their afternoon shifts extended into the overnight hours, when there’s a higher likelihood for violence to erupt. At the news conference Monday, Johnson acknowledged that the department has trust issues to overcome in neighborhoods hit hardest by violence.

    Every state should put all of their illegals on a bus to Chicago and lets see how that works out.
