The last thing American citizens want to hear from their law enforcement agencies, especially those living in Chicago is: “the problem is too big for us to handle.”
Sadly, this is just the beginning of a larger problem that Obama and the Democrats have enabled by their lackadaisical response to the growing threat from repeat criminals and terrorists flooding into America from foreign countries. Obama’s response to the problem of over crowded prisons was to release felons back onto the streets and set Guantanamo Bay terrorists free to go out and violate the rule of law all over again.
Obama’s hometown of Chicago has seen such a spike in murders that their law enforcement is at a loss for how to deal with their recent problems. Ironically, they are asking President-elect Trump for help.
Conservative Tribune enlightens us:
During an interview with National Public Radio on Saturday, Chicago Police Board Chairwoman Lori Lightfoot admitted the city’s crime problem was beyond what the city could handle.
“We need to have more federal gun prosecutions in Chicago. Our federal partners from the U.S. attorney’s office, the ATF, the FBI need to be much more invested in this overall strategy. Chicago Police Department cannot tackle this issue by itself,” Lightfoot said. “This is not a problem that we’re going to arrest our way out of.”
She’s right. CNN reported that the windy city saw 762 murders in 2016, making it the deadliest year in almost 20 years.
Lightfoot also stated Chicago was “in a state of crisis” and sided with Donald Trump when he wrote:
Chicago murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016. If Mayor can't do it he must ask for Federal help!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 2, 2017
For the Democrats to surrender and admit they need Trump’s help speaks volumes to the failed liberal policies they have tried time and time again with no positive result.
The perception is growing that Trump is much more competent than he’s given credit for!
