You know that violence has been raging on Chicago’s streets, unaddressed by the ubiquitously Democratic city leadership, for years.
But did you know that Chicago gangs are able to join up and work together…to perpetuate violence and the progressive narrative?
Chicago street gangs have reportedly struck a pact to shoot members of the Chicago Police Department “on-site” if the officers draw weapons on suspects in public, according to a federal intelligence warning.
Local ABC7 reported:
The “situational information report” from FBI officials in Chicago dated August 26, 2020, states “members of these gang factions have been actively searching for, and filming, police officers in performance of their official duties. The purpose of which is to catch on film an officer drawing his/her weapon on any subject and the subsequent ‘shoot on-site’ of said officer, in order to garner national media attention.”
Alerts based on police intelligence, no matter how unspecific, are frequently distributed to law enforcement agencies according to investigators, especially when they involve threats to officers.
The FBI alert, headlined “Pact Made by People Nation Gang Factions to ‘Shoot On-Site’ Any Police Officer with a Weapon Drawn” lists street gangs that have become well-known in Chicago the past five decades, from the Latin Kings and Vice Lords to the El Rukns and Black P Stones.
Speaking to the station, CPD Superintendent David Brown acknowledged that officers are up against a “sense of lawlessness,” but would not comment on this FBI Chicago alert. Wouldn’t comment? Seriously? That couldn’t be comforting to the officers he sends into harm’s way to protect and serve every day.
“I think it’s bigger than a suggestion,” he said. “I think 51 officers being shot at or shot in one year, I think that quadruples any previous year in Chicago’s history. So I think it’s more than a suggestion that people are seeking to do harm to cops.”
This comes right on the heels of yet another violent weekend in the Windy City, with 55 shot and ten killed, according to the Chicago-Sun Times (as per Breitbart). Two members of CPD and a 15-year-old boy were among those injured. It would be a good bet that these gangs play a role in most of that street violence. Can you say cultural rot?
