Sean Hannity reported that there were 33 shootings, 49 victims, and eight shooting murders in a single weekend in Chicago. President Barack Obama is always on hand to offer divisive comments on rare events like the Michael Brown shooting or the Muslim kid arrested for bringing a bomb-looking, homemade clock to school. But he remains suspiciously silent about high black-on-black crime rates around the country.
Sheriff David Clarke, not a fan of the president’s, said violence in Chicago is an epidemic. If those numbers were the result of a tornado, the government would declare a state of emergency. The National Guard would be on the scene. But all we get from Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the president are a “shoulder shrug…head in the sand.”
To these people, including the Chicago police superintendent, “black lives do not matter.”
The sheriff talked about the assault on the American police officer.
“Police are less assertive right now. What needs to happen in Chicago, Milwaukee, New York, is the political class — Rahm Emanuel in Chicago, the mayor of Milwaukee, Bill de Blasio in New York — they need to make it clear to the public that they’re going to properly resource the police department, and they’re going to stand behind these officers and demand more assertive policing.”
