Democrats have run everything in Cook County and Chicago for nearly 100 years. Chicago is broke, and so is the state of Illinois, primarily as a result of Chicago and its profligate spending on social programs, fat bloated city and county government, and stupid Democrat idiocy in general.
And now the Chicago Police Department is under scrutiny (again). They hire the worst cops in the world, never fire any of the blatant slugs and miscreants, and never ever have any accountability for police misdeeds. Well, with the exception of holding former CPD chief Jon Burg accountable for torture and malfeasance thirty years ago. This police force has been brutalizing its citizens for about the same amount of time, perhaps a century. And nobody is ever fired, suspended, or even criticized. Not even a slap on the wrist.
The latest video of a stupid Chicago cop, Jason Van Dyke, shooting a black guy with a knife 16 times in 15 seconds is just typical for Chicago. And the guy was surrounded by about 19 responding patrol cars, with 20 or 30 other cops on the scene. At this time last October, 2014, the nation is focused on the violence in Ferguson, MO, and the Cook County State's attorney Anita Alverez (Democrat) holds this damning video from the public for 13 months, apparently in order to protect her fellow Democrat Mayor Rahm Emanual from scrutiny of police malfeasance under his watch while he has a re-election campaign underway. That, and let Ferguson riots die down a bit.
To add fuel to the fire, the Democrats in charge pay the family of the slain black guy 5 million dollars to keep things quiet. Sounds like a play right out of the Democrat playbook to me. And only 8 days prior to this shooting was yet another Chicago cop caught on video shooting another black guy in the back, this time the guy had no weapon. But not to worry, the cops on the scene planted a gun on the body, that's how it is done in the Democrat haven of Chicago, Illinois.
This video is about to be released soon (Robert Johnson is the dead black guy's name). Same players involved: Anita Alverez (D) ignored the case. Mayor Rahm Emanual (D) also ignored it. They didn't even bother to pay Johnson's family any hush money, a little off the reservation for Democrats on that one. Guess they are getting cheap nowadays, what with revenues on the wane.
And nobody knows why Chicago is a mess. They can't understand what is going on. Of course, they are all Democrats, and they are all asking each other what is going on, and nobody seems to know.
They, of course, will never ever under any circumstances ask a Republican for their opinion. They prefer to remain clueless. This will remain a Democrat mystery until further notice. Or until a Republican majority is elected in Cook County and Chicago, a likelihood similar to that of the Jacksonville Jaguars winning the Super Bowl any time soon.
