Democrat Congressman Calls Chicago Police ‘The Sworn Enemy of Black People’

Democrats hate cops:

Illinois Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush blasted the Chicago police union over the weekend as “the sworn enemy of black people,” pushing back at the controversy surrounding prosecutor Kim Foxx and her office’s handling of the Jussie Smollett case.
During a press conference on Saturday, Rush, D-Ill., tore into Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police after members of the union participated in protests demanding Cook County State’s Attorney Foxx resign from her post.
“The FOP is the sworn enemy of black people, the sworn enemy of black people,” Rush said Saturday. “The FOP has always taken the position that black people can be shot down in the street by members of the Chicago Police Department, and suffer no consequences.”
He added: “Let’s be clear: Kim Foxx, her battle, is with the FOP and all of their cohorts.”
Rush’s comments came after hundreds of protesters, including members of the police union, gathered outside Foxx’s office last week. . . .
The union, though, told The Tribune Saturday that Rush’s comments were “ignorant, offensive, malicious and false.”
“These outrageous and irresponsible comments have demeaned each and every Chicago Police Officer, regardless of their race,” the union reportedly said.
Foxx has come under fire over her office’s decision to dismiss charges against Smollett following accusations he faked a hate crime.

So far this year, 100 people have been murdered in Chicago, and three-quarters of the victims were black. According to CDC data, from 2013 to 2017, Cook County, Illinois — which includes Chicago — had more homicides than 44 entire states. In fact, Cook County, with a population of 5.2 million, had nearly as many homicides (3,394) during that period as the entire state of Ohio, which has more than twice the population (11.7 million) and had 3,444 homicides. Who is killing all these people in Chicago? Is it racist cops? Is it deranged Trump supporters?

CNN headline: “Chicago’s first warm weekend of 2019 ends with 24 shootings and 5 murders.” Racism! Blame cops!
