BREAKING DETAILS: 75 People Shot, 12 Deceased, One Person In Custody

Published

on

Did the Purges begin? Is America a war zone? Looking at Chicago one might be convinced. As of August 6th, it had been 1256 days since the city of Chicago had a single day free of sh*oting and/or homicides, and this shows no sign of abating. That translates to nearly three and a half years – that is three and half years worth of daily/nightly, sometimes even hourly firearm violence in a city noted for some of the strictest firearm control laws in the nation.

The beleaguered populace of Chicago is denied the basic right to defend themselves against the rampant firearm violence taking place in their neighborhoods and their city streets while they attempt to fight poverty and joblessness in a city riddled with debt, high crime, rampant gang violence. Yet Mayor Rahm Emanuel continues to advocate for illegal aliens over the citizens of Chicago. In spite of the ruling of McDonald v. the City of Chicago rending the anti-gun laws of the city unconstitutional, Emanuel and other city leaders continue to mire the citizens of Chicago in bureaucracy that virtually renders the ruling void in actual practice.

These advocates of gun control perpetuate the idea that firearms belong only in the hands of the police and the military. Yet three weeks after some 75 people were shot in Chicago, making it the deadliest weekend of the year, police have only charged just one man. They are now asking for the public’s help in making more arrests. Just a question, but would the people not be more effective in assisting the police in their bid to make the city safer if they were legally allowed to carry a firearm?

The Chicago Tribune reports of that deadly weekend of violence –

“At least 74 people were shot in one of the most violent weekends of the year in Chicago, spurred by a 7-hour period early Sunday morning when 40 people were shot.

Between 3 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Monday morning, 11 people were killed and 63 were wounded, according to Tribune data. Their ages spanned from 11 to 62 years old, and most of those shot were attacked on the South and West sides.

As of Friday, at least 1,700 people have been shot in the city this year, fewer than the last two years at this time when violence hit record levels in the city but well above other recent years. There have been at least 300 homicides, according to Tribune data.

Six of the shootings this weekend injured four or more people in a single attack, racking up 31 victims early Sunday.”

Rick Franklin, a reputed gunman for the street gang Black Souls, was taken into police custody on August 4. His arrest came just mere hours after police say he fired a shot at an intersection striking a 26-year-old man, wounding him. The 27-year-old  is charged with three felonies, including aggravated discharge of a firearm, being an armed habitual criminal, and unlawful use of a weapon.

But as the Chicago Tribune reports, “nearly three weeks later, Franklin remains the only alleged shooter charged in connection with the carnage from a weekend during which 75 people were shot, a dozen of those fatally. So far, department officials have reported progress on about five shootings that weekend — ranging from Franklin’s arrest to investigative alerts issued for people they want to interview.

Scores of other victims or their family members still await justice. The damage done by the Chicago Police Department Chicago police’s failure to solve the cases ripples beyond those left bandaged, recovering in hospitals or grieving lost loved ones. Residents and crime experts alike say that consistently failing to hold those who commit violence accountable casts a shadow on the entire city.
The department’s record for solving homicides — known as the clearance rate — that occurred in the same year was about 17 percent in 2017, and the rate remains about that low so far in 2018. Shooting clearance rates have been even more dismal in the past, according to a study that found just 5 percent of shootings in 2016 were cleared.”

Yet rather than choosing to arm their populace allowing them to defend themselves, city leaders Superintendent Eddie Johnson and Mayor Rahm Emanuel suggested that lack of help from the city’s citizen has made it difficult for officers to make arrests.
“We have to continue to get out in the community, engage them and know them better,” Johnson states, “We have to just be better at building relationships with people to make them more comfortable to talk to us.”

The Daily Mail states of the situation –

“In recent weeks, Emanuel has deployed an extra 600 police officers to patrol the streets as he faces mounting pressure to take action against the rampant violence or resign.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly spoken out about the violence in Chicago blaming the crime rate on Emanuel. In a statement earlier this month, Trump said community bonds with law enforcement need to be stronger.

‘That’s bad stuff happening. And probably, I guess, you have to take it from the leadership, it’s called bad leadership,’ he added. ‘There’s no reason in a million years that something like that should be happening in Chicago.'”

Hurricane Looters Just Got Priceless Surprise As Florence Rips Through North Carolina

Published

on

As Hurricane Florence rips through and dumps tons of rain on the Carolinas, people either got out when told to or battened down the hatches for the store. The flooding is epic and a number of people have perished because of the storm. But these people are tough and have already started putting the pieces of their lives back together and they are helping each other get through this disaster.

Looting has become a serious issue in these states. Some are putting up signs that say, “Looters will be shot on sight!” The police have emptied out their jails and are aggressively hunting these criminals down. Lawlessness will not be tolerated.

Hurricane looters are getting a priceless surprise during all this as the police come after them full force. County sheriffs across North Carolina are arresting these criminals for stealing during the storm… it is, after all, a felony.

Authorities in Brunswick County, North Carolina, have arrested at least five men for allegedly looting abandoned businesses, cars, and homes throughout the county located just north of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. No word if anyone has been shot for looting, but if you believe the signs out there, it is a distinct possibility.

From Breitbart:

“It’s a big task because our main priority is protecting lives,” Brunswick County, North Carolina sheriff Jon Ingram, told FOX Business’ Neil Cavuto Saturday.

“Florence made landfall in North Carolina as a Category 1 hurricane but its strength has caused forecasters to downgrade it to a tropical storm. Up to 14 deaths have been reported as a result of the storm, which has ravaged homes along the Carolina coast and caused massive flooding.

“Police officers in Wilmington, North Carolina, also arrested five people Saturday evening for allegedly ransacking a Dollar General store, and officers reported looting at a Family Dollar store downtown when they noticed the store’s windows had been busted in. Charges are pending against the individuals, authorities said.

“It’s just unfortunate that people look for these opportunities to prey on the vulnerabilities of these people when the situation is at its worst,” Ingram said. “We are trying our best to make sure we can contain that as much as possible.’”

I wrote on this yesterday as well concerning the lone camerawoman and her crew from WECT 6 that caught this on video. She bravely watched and reported as looters streamed in and out of a Family Dollar store in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Some tried to hide their faces and a number of them flipped her off as she was reporting. She eventually had to retreat out of concerns for her and her crew’s safety. The police have now arrested at least five people as noted previously who were caught on camera there looting. At first, the owners of the store did not want to pursue charges but after speaking with the police, that has now changed thank goodness.

From WECT 6:

“After the looting, District Attorney Ben David reiterated a statement he said ahead of Hurricane Florence hitting the coast: “There is a vacancy sign on our jail.”

“David and Judge J. Corpening allowed inmates with low-level misdemeanors to be released on their own recognizance while others were transported to other detention facilities to make room for anyone who takes advantage of this situation.

“We have room for people who are going to show the worst in humanity during this. If that means going into unoccupied homes because people have left or looting property that’s exposed to the elements or price gouging that comes in the wake of clean up,” David said.

“David said his advice to the chief of police is to prosecute looters to the fullest extent of the law. A business can decide whatever they want to do civilly, but criminally law enforcement has been advised to move forward.

“It is a felony,” David said. “These are serious crimes, and they are going to be seriously punished.”

“In regards to the looting at the Family Dollar, David said there are people that can be identified by watching the video. He encourages people to report anyone they recognize.”

The storm was only a few hours old when the looting started. There was no dire need here. This was opportunistic theft, plain and simple. Every one of those thieves needs to be hunted down and arrested for doing this. It sure didn’t take long for the veneer of civil society to slip in Wilmington and in other places.

WATCH: Hoards Of Hurricane Looters Run For Their Lives After Lone White Woman Shows Up

Published

Hurricane Florence has landed in the Carolinas. A number of people have perished from the storm and the flooding, I understand, is epic. But that’s not all that is going on in affected areas… blatant in-your-face looting is going on in a number of places. I am sure people are struggling with the storm, but there is simply no excuse for this kind of lawlessness.

In Wilmington, North Carolina, a whole bunch of citizens decided this was the perfect time to break into and loot a Family Dollar Store. It happened yesterday on Greenfield Street. People were stealing anything they could get their hands on until one white woman showed up. She’s one brave lady.

That woman was WECT reporter Chelsea Donovan and she had her camera crew with her. The thieves covered their faces with hoodies and masks and ran off. Then the cowards stood across the street flipping Donovan off. Some of them were kids. They all knew they were breaking the law too and didn’t seem to care.

There were literally dozens of people streaming in and out of that store in the front and the back where the doors had been busted open. They were carrying items in laundry bags back to the public housing community Houston Moore. “When we came over the hill on Greenfield Street, you could just see people everywhere,” Chelsea Donovan said.

The storm only started a couple of days ago so these people were not in dire need of anything. This was just plain opportunistic theft. And when the police were called, it gets even more bizarre. The owners of the store originally asked them to stand down according to Fox News and just let the looters take what they wanted to take. SMH.

Wilmington police sent out a statement saying that they were told by management of the Family Dollar to stand down after receiving reports of looting at the store. Assistant Police Chief Mitch Cunningham said officers were talking with the owner, who initially said he didn’t want to pursue charges when they arrived on scene. Cunningham said officers consulted with the district attorney and the owner ultimately agreed to press charges.

Donovan and her intrepid crew walked to the front of the store and then to the back exit while witnessing people lugging out all kinds of stuff, including paper goods. You can see them wearing masks. Real brave guys. They should not just be ashamed, they should be arrested. Stealing like that is a felony.

Police officers are now trying to identify the looters. I hope they catch every last one of them. Because of the looting, Wilmington police said they will enact an extended curfew for the blocks between 13th, 14th, Greenfield, and Martin streets. The curfew will go into effect at 5 p.m. and will last until 6 a.m.

“We take looting very seriously and we are going to aggressively pursue any kind of looting that goes on,” Cunningham said. “We are going to take a strong stand.” It always amazes me how quickly people turn to crime when a catastrophe hits… no matter the size or duration. All it takes is a few hours or days of things being shut down and they go for it. Every single time.

District Attorney Ben David knew this was coming and earlier this week went about clearing room in the local jail so looters could be charged and locked up. Brunswick County authorities arrested four people earlier this week on felony breaking and entering charges. It sounds like the minute people got out of town as they were ordered to, these people started looting.

Eventually, Donovan and her camera person had to retreat to their vehicle as it looked like things were going to get ugly and possibly violent. “I was concerned the whole time. I won’t lie, but I was there to get the story,” Donovan said. She’s lucky she didn’t get more than that. Just sayin’.

From WECT 6:

“After the looting, District Attorney Ben David reiterated a statement he said ahead of Hurricane Florence hitting the coast: “There is a vacancy sign on our jail.”

“David and Judge J. Corpening allowed inmates with low-level misdemeanors to be released on their own recognizance while others were transported to other detention facilities to make room for anyone who takes advantage of this situation.

“We have room for people who are going to show the worst in humanity during this. If that means going into unoccupied homes because people have left or looting property that’s exposed to the elements or price gouging that comes in the wake of clean up,” David said.

“David said his advice to the chief of police is to prosecute looters to the fullest extent of the law. A business can decide whatever they want to do civilly, but criminally law enforcement has been advised to move forward.

“It is a felony,” David said. “These are serious crimes, and they are going to be seriously punished.”

“In regards to the looting at the Family Dollar, David said there are people that can be identified by watching the video. He encourages people to report anyone they recognize.

“Just a few hours later, the Wilmington Police Department arrested five people from the Family Dollar store on Dawson Street. Police say they will be charged to the fullest extent of the law.

“David made it perfectly clear that law enforcement is ready to do their jobs.

“We’re going to do everything we can to protect your property. This is not a response to the video, this has been our message before the storm arrived,” said David, adding, “This conduct does not speak for the people in that community.'”

This is the ugly side of what a natural or manmade disaster can bring concerning crime. The police no doubt will be busy for days rounding these people up and making sure they get the justice they deserve. They sure did run at first from that reporter. I’m glad she got out of there because they looked like they would have gleefully torn her apart.
