New Numbers out tonight indicate there were 72 people shot over the weekend in Chicago. 12 people died. The local political leadership has lost control of their criminal element. There are fewer people shot in a war zone. They need to call for the National Guard, or U S Military to clean up that mess they have created.

The numbers keep rising. Instead of reporting important issues like racial components and crime statistics related to the incidents, the press focuses on Giuliani misspelling someone's name with a typo.

AGREE, Annie ! Chitcago is about as far gone as mexihole with their corrupt politicians AND CARTEL DOMINANCE ! the useless mayor AND governor cares NOTHING about the failed city ! and as far gone as the burning inferno Sanctufornia ! that state isn't just burning to ashes, they have failed all around with their politicians not giving a damn about the tax paying citizens and their safety and defying our immigration laws and ICE agents. The state has failed in keeping the citizens safe from the threatening diseases introduced by the sickened illegal aliens, sickened refugees, and the sickened homeless spreading THEIR OWN with the damned needles they leave everywhere !

now that the these cities and states are so far gone, they will probably blame Mr Trump ! can't understand why the citizens don't just block the mayor from entering his office and FORCING HIM TO STEP DOWN or dragging him out of his office !

Most people know the President can do only so much. He has to be asked by the Governor, or possibly a Mayor, but most Democrats are too air headed to take charge of a situation. They will take in all the kickbacks they can find, and retire on a great salary for life.

I don't understand it, progressive democrat Rahm Emanuel was handpicked to clean up Chicago.

Well silly, was it to be cleaned up for the immigrants? The citizens will still be in the plight they are in.

Turn loose the police, un-handcuff them. Allow them to do their job. This is a crisis that seemingly being allowed to fester, to what end? This is a police matter, which they are well equipted to handle.

Are we building towards martial law? The police can handle the situation. The government must support the police for this to happen.

Rahm asking people to snitch is a joke. Unless he can offer some sort of effective witness protection, they are going to remain silent.

And if the "community" isn't prepared to work with law enforcement and turn in the criminals they shouldn't shocked & outraged when NOTHING changes.

Democrats are doing nothing to stop the violence, because they are happy to reduce the black population.
