Chicago has become the city of murder. Gun violence continues to radiate throughout the city with no end in sight. The Democrats are just fine with the violence as they believe it makes for good news stories at night. But the ones on the receiving end of a 9mm bullet would seem to disagree with them.
The brainless push to defund the Chicago Police Department has only led to a surge of violence in the city. Democrats are making the city a criminal’s playground the tighter they choke the law enforcement. But all of that is about to change as President Trump comes to the rescue of the liberal made victims living in Chicago.
It is the right of every American to be able to live safely in the United States of America. It is the job of every governmental official at all levels to keep the peace and provide that safety. But the liberal leaders are negligent in their jobs, so violence reigns in their cities.
Over 300 agents are being sent to the crime-infested city. Never before has a federal force been sent to the city to target the street gangs and root out illegal weapon sales. The force that the president is sending to the city will make a huge difference in stopping the violence.
Operation Legend is the program by which the mission is known. Federal agents have been sent to Democratic hotspots all over the country with great success. The riots in Portland stopped for a period of time until the greedy Democrats sent them away. It was at that time the riots returned.
The success will be measured by the decline of violence in the city. President Trump said years ago that the gangs of America are going to be dealt with. And this is his way of delivering on that promise. To be a gang member in America is to be an enemy of the country.
Chicago has been a playground of violence for years. But when the liberal mayor refused to stop the protests and decided to defund the police, the violence only got worse. Local law enforcement should have been funded more and allowed to use deadly force when called for to stop people from killing.
In the past eight months, Chicago has seen 1,804 shootings in the city. That is nearly a 50 percent rise from this time last year. But the sick Democrats simply do not care about the lives that are affected. The liberals only see them as statistics and not real lives.
The goal of the federal agents is to put an end of the crime wave gripping the city. Democrats believe that Batman will save them, but he is a comical fantasy from a television show. President Trump is going to be that superhero that will get the job done.
Kim Foxx is the Cook County State’s Attorney and she has stated that “Having additional resources to look at gun prosecution, to look at gun cases is incredibly helpful. But what we also know, however, is that this is a short-term triage.”
The additional resources do not have to be a short-term solution. Simply bumping up the funding for the police and giving them the power to stop violence would make the plan a long-term solution.
Federal agents will have the power to charge people with more serious crimes. They will get to spend 10 years in prison or more. And it will be a place far from their families and people that know them. President Trump does not see this mission as some kind of game. It is a war that must be stopped.
The mayor of Chicago once rejected federal help, but she has since changed her tune and is open to the idea. Her city is dying, and she seems to be a loss to do anything about it like every other Democratic running a city.
The move by the president is not political. It is a method that he is using to keep America united and strong. He knows that violence must stop if America is going to continue to stay the greatest nation in the world.
