Chicago; Baltimore

Fox 32 Chicago (H/T SCC):

The Rev. Al Sharpton has voiced concerns about the federal government’s announcement that more federal agents were sent to Chicago to deal with the city’s violence problems.

Sharpton, who heads the National Action Network, held a news conference Thursday at a church on the city’s West Side. He says everyone wants to stop the shooting in Chicago, “but you’ve got to have the will and the determination to do it on all sides and be fair and just.”

Translation: He’s worried about dindus being sent to prison.  Federal intervention is all fine and dandy if it involves Feds writing checks to local reverends for various crime prevention hustles, but not okay if means that violent dindus are held accountable.  Also notice that Sharpton, normally New York-based, is getting more and more involved in Chicago, which used to be Jesse Jackson’s turf.  I think that’s a function of Jesse Sr getting old (75).

Baltimore Sun (H/T SBPDL):

Baltimore leaders propose mandatory sentence for illegal gun possession

City council members there in support of the bill were Leon F . Pinkett III, Isaac “Yitzy” Schleifer, and Robert Stokes Sr. Other council members voiced their opposition to the bill Friday, including Ryan Dorsey and Kristerfer Burnett.

Dorsey said the legislation should not be fast-tracked.

“This is not something that we should decide on overnight,” he said. “It’s going to disproportionately impact black people and communities negatively. I haven’t seen any evidence that mandatory minimums actually deter any sort of crime.”

Burnett said the city would be better off increasing funding for Safe Streets and schools to combat violence.

“We should treat violence as a public health issue,” he said.

He argued that mandatory minimums do not decrease crime.

“We are under a lot of pressure right now from community members living in neighborhoods experiencing violence to do something,” Burnett said. “I don’t want to minimize their fears, but we have a responsibility to enact good policy as well.”

Some criminal justice reform advocates and defense attorneys also expressed opposition to the bill.

Councilman Brandon Scott, chair of the public safety committee, said he believes there are good intentions behind the bill, but he also has some concerns that must be discussed as he and his colleagues consider the legislation.

“We know mandatory minimums have been specifically shown to overwhelmingly impact poor black people, and in Baltimore we know that we have an unfortunate abundance of poor black people, particularly poor black men who have already been impacted by mandatory minimums,” Scott said. “We have to figure out how to make sure that those violent repeat offenders who feel comfortable carrying guns are being punished, but at the same time we cannot have things that are going to make things worse when you’re talking about the grand scheme of young poor black people in our city.”

Translation:  They’re worried about more dindus being sent to prison.  Gun control is only good when it promises to expose and squelch the rarely existent nefarious conspiracies that operate at levels above the street dindus, but it’s bad when it comes to checking the street dindus themselves.

Niggers are too stupid to realize that prison is their ONLY SAFE SPACE. Freedom requires responsibility, and that doesn’t come in black.
R-E-S-P-E-C-T, what does it mean to thee? Certainly not the Dictionary definition, you damn dirty ape. I suspect its just Gibsmedat with another attitude that requires shooting your stupid black ass.
Failed race meets reality, Reality Wins. Irregardless of what happens, this obsolete farm equipment is being phased out. There is a new brown and it ain’t black, gnomesayin’?
