Chicago Needs National Guard Help !!!!

Blagojevich Says Chicago Is 'Out Of Control'
Mayor Unaware Of Plan; Welcomes Partnership

CDT July 17, 2008




CHICAGO -- As Gov. Rod Blagojevich on Wednesday signed a new law that will put in place tougher penalties for selling guns to minors, he also announced he's got a new idea to help combat the violence that Chicago is experiencing: he's talking to the Illinois State Police and the National Guard to see if they could help.


The Chicago Sun-Times depicted Blagojevich as the "new sheriff in town" Thursday morning in its coverage of the governor's plan to form an "elite tactical team" to help the city fight crime.

"Violent crime in the city of Chicago is out of control," Blagojevich said at the bill signing ceremony. "I'm offering resources of the state to the city to work in a constructive way with Mayor Daley to do everything we can possibly do to help stop this violence," said the governor.

The summer of 2008 will be remembered as especially violent. Blagojevich said there's been a child shot nearly every day since June 26, with 29 Chicago Public School students shot since last fall.
 
"Twenty-eight of those kids are African-American and Latino. Hard to imagine that that would be acceptable if that were, in fact, the case in other parts of the city or in a middle-class suburb somewhere," he said. "Something is wrong, and this violence has to stop."

Bringing in state troopers -- even National Guard helicopters to high-crime areas -- is still very much in the planning stages.

The governor said Chicago Mayor Richard Daley hasn't asked for help, but Blagojevich said he'll call the mayor once he has some concrete suggestions about what help he can provide. He didn't have many specifics, but he said it's more likely that state police will be brought in than the National Guard.

In fact, Daley's office said the mayor did not know anything about Blagojevich's comments and did not know he was going to make them.

And as Mayor Daley (Big Daddy) said during the Freakfest of 1968....

"The Policeman is not there to create disorder...he is there to preserve disorder"

Another article on the same thing. The "cure" is the CAUSE of the disease, of course.

IL: Blagojevich threatens martial law in Chicago

Chicago Sun Times

“Calling violence in Chicago ‘out of control,’ Gov. Blagojevich on Wednesday
offered to lend state troopers and National Guard helicopters to the city to
augment the Chicago Police. The governor is considering forming an ‘elite
tactical team’ to help the Chicago Police fight gang problems, a source
said, adding that the unit could later be sent across the state to deal with
gang problems at any city’s request. ‘It’s fair to say that violent crime in
Chicago is out of control. In certain communities in the city of Chicago, it
is reaching epidemic proportions,’ Blagojevich told reporters at a [victim
disarmament] bill-signing ceremony in Chicago.” (07/17/08)
