As civil order collapses in Chicago, gang leader enforces ‘reign of terror’ in Cook County jail

Street gangs have turned Chicago’s streets into killing grounds. More than 3000 people have been shot on its streets so far this year, and there have been 676 homicides. The police, thoroughly demoralized, underfunded, and under Department of Justice orders that make stop and frisk all but unthinkable, have no ability to keep them in check.

And once criminals are apprehended and incarcerated, the forces of civic order have lost control. Sam Charles of the Chicago Sun-Times documents an astounding “reign of terror” in the Cook County Jail by gang leader Labar “Bro Man” Spann…

    Why oh why did we let the Chinese build our railroads for us?

    • Alain

    Folks, this is what the whole country would look like if totally run by the Democrats.

    • Brett McS

      The whole country, but with pockets of elites in low-crime, super-expensive areas where they can live happily without having to worry about entrepreneurs and political agitators from the non-existent middle classes rocking the boat.

        Plus their private security and gated communities or houses behind a fortress.

    More than 3000 people shot – I thought Chicago was a gun free city? Maybe genius Ozero could fix the problems in his hometown instead of hanging around Washington.

    • Alain

      Gun free just means only the thugs, savages and criminals are armed.

    • terrence22

      It does have some of the most restrictive gun ownership laws in all of the USA.

      Not that they work!

    Wasn’t the movie the Dark Knight filmed in Chicago!

    • Watchman

      Not enough backhanders were given to those in charge to make it happen?
      Those in charge didn’t want the locals to see what happened when a city was ruled by someone competent, even if they were criminally homicidally competent?

      Maybe it was Enemy At The Gate

    At this rate sending in the Marines will be the only viable strategy. Either that or watch the city die.
