The Left supports armed criminals

Right out of the gate is the charge of racism.  It’s always racism when a black man is shot by police.  There is never any other explanation.  Cops just go around shooting black guys for sport.  They might as well put little stickers on their cars the way WWII fighter pilots did to tally their kills.

He was a father AND a barber.  Of course the police targeted his hard working, black man to take him out.  Good on the black community in Chicago to riot protest this grave injustice.

I hope this doesn’t backfire on them.

Oops…

From the Chief Communications Officer of the Chicago Police Department

Was that a gun holstered that he flashed at police?

Sure as hell looks like it.

Did he draw on police?

Sure as hell looks like it.

According to Chicago Police representative Guglielmi:

No officers were hurt, and a weapon was recovered at the scene along with several magazines of ammunition, Gugliemi said. Augustus didn’t have a valid FOID card or a concealed carry license.

So Harith Augustus was illegally carrying a concealed pistol, was confronted by police, flashed his gun, then turned, ran, and tried to draw his gun before being shot.

None of that matters though, because racism.

This is why we can’t have nice things.  Things like cities where 24 people have been killed in July and the month is only half over.

The police can’t deal with criminals if they are accused of racism from every encounter.

This is what happens:

Baltimore police stopped noticing crime after Freddie Gray’s death. A wave of killings followed.

“What officers are doing is they’re just driving looking forward. They’ve got horse blinders on,” says Kevin Forrester, a retired Baltimore detective.

The surge of shootings and killings that followed has left Baltimore easily the deadliest large city in the United States. Its murder rate reached an all-time high last year; 342 people were killed. The number of shootings in some neighborhoods has more than tripled. One man was shot to death steps from a police station. Another was killed driving in a funeral procession.

The Left has fallen too far down the rabbit hole.  They can’t walk it back anymore.  Even when the cops have it on video that the guy they shot drew a gun on them, it’s still racism.

So if Shannon Watts, Black Lives Matter, and the Women’s March make the Chicago PD just stop dealing with criminals the way Baltimore PD did, just to avoid politically incorrect encounters, Chicago will probably break 1,000 homicides a year.

Still, they can’t change course.

The good news is, the more they act like this, the more this will repel rational people.  The bad news is, as the concentration of insane people on the Left increases, they will get louder and louder.

If it is any consolation to Shannon Watts, Harith Augustus will still being vote for the Democrats in the future.

  1. “The good news is, the more they act like this, the more this will repel rational people.”

    This is true. All but the most deranged, militant leftists see a situation like this and realize it’s a good shoot. Most people, even most liberals, don’t want the anarchy that would come with a neutered and/or disengaged police force. Fortunately, it seems the Democrats are pushing this type of insanity as a platform for their party going forward, which isn’t going to end well for them at the ballot box.

  2. It’s not like the wealthy enclaves these leftist live in are going to be experiencing a lack of good policing any time in the future.

    1. they assumed all the shoots were attributable to racism and they wanted the cameras to prove that. Then it turns out most of the shoots are good, so they just skipped over that and went straight to “systemic racism.”

  3. Of COURSE the left supports armed criminals- that way they have lots of incidents of “gun violence” and police “ racism” to assure the payments on their opulent lifestye keep coming in.
    Imagine our country with no criminals- no more reason to scream and march and blame all of us.
