Here’s something Chicagoans can celebrate. Or is it?
Police Supt. Garry McCarthy announced Thursday the city of Chicago went 24 hours without a murder or shooting. Wednesday marked Chicago’s first shooting- and murder-free day for almost a year. Early 2011 was the last time the city was this still, McCarthy said.
“This is clearly the result of the tremendous police work of the men and women of the Chicago Police Department,” McCarthy said in a statement, noting the CPD’s efforts to move more officers to the streets since May.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. Are you fucking kidding me? This is how bad it is in Chicago? No one murders anyone for 24 hours and your boy Garry here calls the press to announce it like that’s a good thing. Hey Garry, here’s some free advice, maybe wait a week or so before anyone is gunned down or stabbed before tooting your own horn. You know what i thought when i read this story? “holy shit, someone kills someone else every day in this shithole.”
And not only that but, but the guy takes credit for it. “This is clearly the result….blah, blah, blah.”
Hey Garry, you know what this is the result of? It’s fucking freezing outside and people are too comfortable in their own homes to kill anyone else. fact.
This has to be the most out of touch cop in the history of cops. I bet his boss is pissed and called him to tell him to shut his fucking yapper and get back to work.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel, speaking to reporters at a meeting with small business owners and members of the Chatham Business Assocation, called the event a “significant milestone.”
“To me, that’s the city of Chicago we all know and love,” he said.
