Chicago police will no longer respond to 911 calls for robbery


Robbery is a serious violent crime (Fox News video is available here).  For police not to respond to reports of robberies will only lead to one prediction: there will be an increase in robberies.  In a city that makes it extremely difficult for people to use guns defensively, not having the police respond is dangerous.
There is also the James Q. Wilson notion of "broken windows."  As the city disintegrates, it may encourage other more serious crime to occur.
Note how different the response to crime here is compared to the sheriff in nearby Milwaukee after their budget cuts.   That sheriff cut this public service ad:

"I am Sheriff David Clarke, and I want to talk to you about something personal, your safety.  It is not longer a spectator sport.  I need you in the game.  But are you ready?  With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option.  You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. But are you prepared? Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there.  You have a duty to protect yourself and your family.  We are partners now.  Can I count on you now?"

So now that Rahm Emanuel has made it clear that law abiding citizens cannot defend themselves, he tells the criminals that his employees (the Chicago PD) will no longer enforce certain laws.

Gee, I wonder how this is going to turn out?

Let me see if I've understood this correctly - Relm Emanuel Chicago mayor and long time friend (and former Chief of Staff) of the Presidents - recently sent letters to gun manufacturers, banks and investment institutions trying to bully them all into towing THE(read OBAMA'S) Party Line on "common sense" (read "blatently ignoring the Second Amendment")Gun Legislation (Gun BANS). Chicago ALREADY has draconian gun laws. Apparently, Emanuel would be happy to put some of the most successful businesses (at EVERY level) in the country OUT OF BUSINESS at his juvenile whim. I guess he feels that since he's buddies with the King, he should yell "jump" and EVERONE else should say "how high, your Honor"!
I don't personally know about S & W, but Ruger wouldn't (and doesn't need to) give the Chicago Mayor the "time of day"! (But, I digress). At the same time he's trying to throw his financial weight around, his city is having to ration essential police duties because their BROKE. Like many aspects of the recent "discussions" this situation would actually be funny, if peoples lives weren't on the line and the "comedians" didn't have such influence.

They should probably paint over the words on the side of the police cars that say "We serve and protect".
