Six people were killed, and seventeen wounded (including a six year old girl) last weekend in Chicago. There have been over 200 murders in Chicago so far in 2013. In fact, during to twenty days of the George Zimmerman trial, four children were murdered in Chicago.
In terms of numbers, Chicago is far and away the leader in murder. But, as the liberal web site PoliticusUSA says, on a per capita basis, Chicago’s murder rate is lower than forty other cities with populations above 40,000 residents. I’m sure that’s comforting to know for all of Chicago’s murder victims.
“That’s news?” you ask. Crime, including murder, goes unabated in Chicago, Obama’s hometown. And all Obama lackie mayor Rahm Emanuel does is offer platitudes about a moral code and how gang bangers should keep away from children.
Well, it seems as if Emanuel has been outdone. Illinois State Representative Monique Davis (above), on July 16, 2013, said:
“I’m going to tell you what some suspicions have been, and people have whispered to me: they’re not sure that black people are shooting all of these children. There’s some suspicion – and I don’t want to spread this, but I’m just going to tell you what I’ve been hearing – they suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.”
As if that statement wasn’t stupid enough, Davis doubled-down with this:
“I don’t know. I don’t know that they are, and I don’t know that they aren’t, since no one is being arrested, we don’t know who’s doing it.”
To say that the Chicago police were outraged by her statements would be an understatement. Mike Shields, the president of Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police, said of Davis’ statements:
“I think it’s outrageous. … anybody that says that Chicago police officers are out there killing babies is insane.”
Davis is a Democrat who represents Chicago’s South Side district.
To quote Forrest Gump’s mother, “Stupid is as stupid does,” which means that stupidity is demonstrated by one’s actions. Well, Monique Davis, your actions (speech) demonstrates that you are, indeed, stupid!
But that’s just my opinion
