Nice overreach. The Republicans refuse to address gun control. That would be a nice start.

The Democrats have refused to offer any legislation that would protect The American People's while getting illegal guns out of the hands of criminals.

The Democrats have proposed, among other things, a ban on bump stocks. The Republicans have refused to consider it. They are too busy offering thoughts and prayers after the latest mass shooting.

So, just more lies from Mule - this guy Boykin is a Cook County Commissioner - so show me, as the headline on this thread says, where Rahm Emanuel asked for anything........ all those articles are about a county commissioner - not a representative of the city....


This story has been widely reported in Chicago and got a boost to the national level when Rahm Emanuel endorsed the call to bring in foreign mercenaries to combat crime in his city.
Of course the corrupt liberal media didn't cover it so you would be yet again uninformed.





I call bullsh!t again....this is from WGN, a Chicago station:

Boykin isnít getting specific about what exactly he thinks the United Nations can do. But he says city and state leaders must make a total commitment to eliminating poverty, proving job opportunities and improving schools.

That has been Mayor Rahm Emanuelís approach, and he points to what he calls signs of success: new companies are hiring in Chicago, the school system is improving and the number of shootings in the Englewood neighborhood are down.


"There was a story the other day in the paper about people feeling different about whatís happening," Emanuel said. "For all of us that know what Englewood has stood for before, itís different and itís the residents saying it."

As of Wednesday morning, 814 fewer people have been shot and there have been 624 homicides in Chicago, down 15 percent compared to 734 on this date last year.

But carjackings have surged in 2017. Chicago police say they're aggressively responding and making more arrests, but it's a difficult problem because police say most of the carjackings involve juvenile offenders who are treated differently in the justice system.

Asked for a headline to frame the story of Chicago violence in 2017, Emanuel said the city plans on adding a thousand cops, and taking care of kids with 115,000 in after-school programs, 31,000 in summer jobs and close to 7,500 in mentoring programs.

"The goal is to make sure that weíre not only reducing gun violence, but then giving our kids access to the type of mentoring and support so that they have a different choice in life," Emanuel said.

The mayor has his approach to dealing with gun violence -- and most city leaders have bought in.

Can you rephrase this in a less sociopathic manner? I think what you are trying to say is anyone who isn't an extreme right winger tacitly supports violent racism and genocide, am I reading this correctly?

Do you far-lefties have a quota for how many black people you want murdered?



I don't think it's the lefties (whomever they are) that want the carnage to start. I think it's those stubborn Democrats that want the violence so that they can get people in an uproar, point fingers at Trump, have the Black Lives Matter etc. groups join together, march on Washington and demand Trump fix everything right away before there is civil war or revolution. There are high level groups and people who want America destabilized, because then they can put in place a government of THEIR choosing, so they use these groups like pawns to do their dirty work.

I think former First Lady, Michelle Obama could do some work with the dis-enfranchised of Chicago. She lived there, she knows what goes on and what the problems are. I think she is a strong positive role model that people could identify with, and if the crap hit the fan, she'd be able to hold her own, get on a public address system and ask 'you people want a can of whoop ass?' inner city people know what that is and they will stop fighting amongst themselves when they realize the real enemy is poverty, not each other.

What legislation would you like to see passed that the criminals will follow?

The definition of a criminal is someone who ignores legislation. Inner-city gang violence isn't a gun issue. It's a socioeconomic issue, which isn't about Republican v Democrat because neither side has been able to improve that in my lifetime. As long as there is poverty, there will be inner-city crime. That's the byproduct of a free capitalist society.

The legislation that will achieve the goal, would be to place a top priority on funding under-developed communities with high-paying teaching jobs instead of $30k/year. Inner-city dysfunction is passed on from generation to generation because there are no leaders to show them a better way. Currently, there are no leaders at home, and no leaders at these dispicable schools because their low-paying teaching salaries attract the bottom of the barrel. No leadership anywhere in their life. Start by investing in the teachers so they can have positive role models that inspire them to go work and start a career. But unfortunately, every city teacher I've known speaks about how they simply don't have any money or resources. They often times spend their own money to initiate school projects. Sad!

Figures I have seen indicate that in 1965, 25% of black children were born out of wedlock, and in 2015 70% of black children were born out of wedlock. The 1965 date is important since welfare put in the "marriage penalty". A non-married female with children got almost the same benefits as if she were married with no income. If the husband worked, benefits went down. Thus fathers left the family, even if they still put money into family funds. The nuclear family of the poor was thus broken up by economics.
The trend was then started, and carried on for more than 40 years. Bill Clinton changed welare with the TAFN Act (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families).

Now, while all the suggestions you gave are pretty good, remember cost of living in different areas of the country. A starting salary of 30K in Ga is a fairly decent salary, while in NYC it might not even be enough to pay your rent.

Plus, salary isn't enough of a consideration. Don't know about your neck of the woods, but here teachers are paid on a scale by education and experience. Not a set rate.
Some teachers will not teach in certain schools because of incidents of violence and apathy.
The students have to be there to learn, not thug about or ignore the teacher. Schools have to be a safe heaven for learning. Until that happens, the school is never going to gain ground.

So, yes, I agree that there needs to be stronger leadership at home and at school. There needs to be more entry level jobs close to the ( I hate to use this word) ghettos where the poor live, and transportation in and out of those areas.

BUT, the legislation I was asking about was in response to the statement "The Republicans refuse to address gun control."
My response was: "What legislation you would like to see passed that the criminals will follow?"

what falls under your definition of a criminal? Is it someone who plans on committing a crime but hasnít committed one ever? Someone who committed a crime many years ago but has been clean ever since? Youíd have to define that more clearly before we can begin to answer your question.

The lefties constantly call for "gun control legislation" but refuse to support enforcement.
All laws are useless unless they are enforced.

Chicago, under complete Democrat control, plea bargained the criminals who used illegal guns to murder down to misdemeanors or just dropped the charges.
That will soon begin to change since President Trump's Justice Department is sending in federal prosecutors.

Oh ye of little knowledge.
The use of an illegal firearm makes the crime a federal matter.

Inner-city dysfunction is passed on from generation to generation because there are no leaders to show them a better way. Currently, there are no leaders at home, and no leaders at these dispicable schools because their low-paying teaching salaries attract the bottom of the barrel. No leadership anywhere in their life. Start by investing in the teachers so they can have positive role models that inspire them to go work and start a career. But unfortunately, every city teacher I've known speaks about how they simply don't have any money or resources. They often times spend their own money to initiate school projects. Sad!

Figures I have seen indicate that in 1965, 25% of black children were born out of wedlock, and in 2015 70% of black children were born out of wedlock. The 1965 date is important since welfare put in the "marriage penalty". A non-married female with children got almost the same benefits as if she were married with no income. If the husband worked, benefits went down. Thus fathers left the family, even if they still put money into family funds. The nuclear family of the poor was thus broken up by economics.
The trend was then started, and carried on for more than 40 years. Bill Clinton changed welare with the TAFN Act (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families).

Now, while all the suggestions you gave are pretty good, remember cost of living in different areas of the country. A starting salary of 30K in Ga is a fairly decent salary, while in NYC it might not even be enough to pay your rent.

Plus, salary isn't enough of a consideration. Don't know about your neck of the woods, but here teachers are paid on a scale by education and experience. Not a set rate.
Some teachers will not teach in certain schools because of incidents of violence and apathy.
The students have to be there to learn, not thug about or ignore the teacher. Schools have to be a safe heaven for learning. Until that happens, the school is never going to gain ground.

So, yes, I agree that there needs to be stronger leadership at home and at school. There needs to be more entry level jobs close to the ( I hate to use this word) ghettos where the poor live, and transportation in and out of those areas.

BUT, the legislation I was asking about was in response to the statement "The Republicans refuse to address gun control."
My response was: "What legislation you would like to see passed that the criminals will follow?"



The lefties constantly call for "gun control legislation" but refuse to support enforcement.
All laws are useless unless they are enforced.

Chicago, under complete Democrat control, plea bargained the criminals who used illegal guns to murder down to misdemeanors or just dropped the charges.
That will soon begin to change since President Trump's Justice Department is sending in federal prosecutors.




Wow!! Federal prosecutors!!! What will they do since the crimes in Chicago are state crimes?




Oh ye of little knowledge.
The use of an illegal firearm makes the crime a federal matter.





Oh, so the gun violence is a federal matter. Then why are you blaming the mayor? Doesn't this make it Trump's problem?

The definition of a criminal is someone who ignores legislation. Inner-city gang violence isn't a gun issue. It's a socioeconomic issue, which isn't about Republican v Democrat because neither side has been able to improve that in my lifetime. As long as there is poverty, there will be inner-city crime. That's the byproduct of a free capitalist society.

Emanuel and the city chose not to prosecute as did Obama.
Public safety in Chicago is the mayor's responsibility.
President Trump is making sure the federal crimes are prosecuted.

Just how many blacks do you approve of being murdered?
