If violent death is your idea of fun, Chicago is a fun place:
The Chicago Police Department announced Friday that murders and shootings rose significantly in 2015 . . .
The year-end crime statistics showed there were 468 murders in Chicago in 2015 compared with 416 the year before, a 12.5% increase, as well as 2,900 shootings—13% more than the year prior, and up 29% since 2013. Chicago had more homicides than any other city in 2015, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Three people were shot to death in Chicago on New Year’s Day, and another 12 people were wounded, but survived. What the hell is wrong with Chicago? It’s run by corrupt Democrats (but I repeat myself) who have no respect for the idiots who elected them, because why should they? If people are stupid enough to vote for Democrats, they deserve bad government, and Mayor Rahm Emmanuel is making sure the stupid voters of Chicago get exactly what they deserve:
Hundreds of police officers at one of the country’s busiest airports say in the case of an active shooter, they are instructed to run and hide.
That’s because these officers are unique among the nation’s major airports: They don’t carry guns.
Their badges, uniforms and vehicles all say “police.” And they are certified police officers in the state of Illinois.
But these nearly 300 aviation police officers, also known as aviation security officers, are not allowed to carry guns at Chicago’s O’Hare and Midway airports. . . .
Internal aviation department documents obtained through department sources state, “If evacuation is not possible: hide.”
The documents advise locking doors, turning off lights and remaining quiet and calm.
“We must also ensure that unarmed security personnel … do not attempt to become part of the response, but could be invaluable to the evacuation efforts,” the documents said.
In addition, a training video shown to aviation police officers has the same instructions: “If evacuation is not possible, you should find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find you. Block entry to your hiding place and lock the door.”
Chicago used to be a great city, but Democrats are determined to prove that they can ruin anything. “The murder and shooting rates there make Kandahar Province look like a cozy, secure vacation destination,” Jazz Shaw writes at Hot Air, adding that residents “might want to take some advice from Daniel Greenfield and Escape from Chicago.”
