Ill. Rep Requests National Guard Help Stop Chicago Violence

Thursday, July 11, 2013 7:57

Headline: Bitcoin & Blockchain Searches Exceed Trump! Blockchain Stocks Are Next!

State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago) is making the request.
 
I am requesting with this press conference that Gov. Patrick Quinn order the Illinois National Guard (and) the Illinois State Police (to) come to Chicago and work with our mayor Ron (sic) Emanuel to provide safety for the children, especially,” she said at a news conference in Springfield.
 
Over the holiday weekend, 74 people were shot and 12 killed in Chicago, and Davis says the police don’t have the manpower to make arrests.
 
I would think this would be a clear violation of the Posse Comitatus Act and as a lawmaker she should know that.  Then again, Abe Lincoln violated the hell out of the constitution and we revere him as a national hero and one of our greatest presidents so thats what we get for being ignorant I guess.  No doubt Chicago has a problem, they also have the strictest gun laws, connection?  This is a no go and politicians are definately playing the safet and fear cars to push the limits.  -Mort

    Sometimes it takes a stronger show of force rto stop the violent criminals. Cowards at heart, they rely on the ‘mob’ mentality to feel powerful, and all it takes is one good old fashion a$$ whipping tp get them back in their place. A.K.A an adult spanking!!

      I’m quite sure that Hitler would agree with you.

        Have you spent anytime, any meaningful time – researching Hitler? You just-might find a huge, huge surprise, if u were to do this. Esp re “today’s times,” WE MUST HAVE these things RIGHT before we MUST GIVE our account to THE ALMIGHTY of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob!!! Much can be studies via pertinent “key words!” Let me know if I can help – in any way re TRULY – just who Hitler was via <f8fbearcat777@fastmail.fm

    Step 2: Ask for Martial Law! (it’s practice to see if the idiots who put up with o’bama will accept it to see if all sheeple will accept it when o’bama wants it to “deal with” the “riots” after Zimmerman is found innocent.

    I have an idea let the citizens have the right to bear arms with out a licence or laws restricting there owner ship of them :)

    • Laura

      The second amendment to the Constitution IS OUR RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS. There was no requirement to get a license to do so! People had better wake up before the entire Coion is dismantled and King Obama declares what our rights will be!

  • ElOregonian

    During the L.A. Riots after the Rodney King verdict the only group who didn’t get vandalized or destroyed were the well-armed Koreans, who protected life and property against the opportunists, muggers, and anarchists.

    Their God-given right to defend themselves and property was a case study in proving a well-armed society is a civil society.

    Do not let overlords living in fortified mansions, dictate your course of safety should be and all the while they hide behind armed protection shielding them from the masses. Hypocrites.

      And Eiisenhower sent the troops to Little Rock, when racists wanted to keep defying the law. So it has a good side in the right hands. However, Eisenhower wasn’t owned by the Banksters, the Military-Industrial complex (which he warned against) Monsanto, the drug companies, et al. Now, all politicians are owned, from the President on down – either party – so don’t go political on it. It’s pure corruption no matter which side is in charge. Look at the latest. The AG even said publicly there would be No punishment for Banksters, who caused devastating harm to tens of millions of Americans and who are now doing Exactly what caused the first crash, since they know they are immune to prosecution. But the government is going nuts to go after a few leakers, who sure didn’t do one percent of the harm the Banksters did.

      Eisenhower murdered millions of Germans at the end of the war. The man should have been put on trial for genocide.

    • YellowRoseTx51

      Yes he was. Like Kennedy, when he FOUND out his error he tried to correct it but it was too late. In fact most of them eventually find out, or KNOW going in because it was the Mafia that put them in.

  • Scared Soldier

    Well it is against posse comitatus. But that really left when George Bush was a lying criminal president.

    Just because this “representative” has forgotten the Constitution and it’s meaning, does not mean all have (even though it appears they have as well)
    However Chicago has ALWAYS been a criminal town. It has produces DOZENS of criminals including well known politicians. Who just happen to still be in office today. (Go ahead and guess) \

    Isn’t it funny though that Chicago is a “gun free” zone and the crime is rampant? Perhaps we can take a lesson from this? Second Amendment anyone? (Downers Grove)

    What I would like to see is an intelligent conversation about this. :lol:

    • RobInTenn

      Chitcago WAS a gun free zone but only for LAW abiding citizens. Now it is the citizens right to carry(legally) and the thug gangbangers will , as we hunters call it, thin out the herds! And as Clint Eastwood famously said” Go ahead, Make my day”.

  • SASSE

    Too Late — That Law the Posse Comitatus Act has already been nullified. :lol:

  • Geneww1938

    Tell Chicago to rescind gun control and encourage ownership. After this, the majority of the problems would go away.

  • Jerry

    I believe you’ll find the National Guard is on furlough because of an African vacation that cot the taxpayer 100 million dollars by your illustrious so-called leader. This, my friends, would be step one to martial law. Send Holder in with some more guns, and maybe they’ll kill each other off.

  • Gramps43

    The only problem with that is that would run afoul of “passé Comitatus” i.e. military involved in policing in time of peace, which is a no-no. The problem is the immoral leadership in the city that hasn’t, for many decades, clamped down on gangs and the violence they create, add that to a police dept. that does not seem to want to take the initiative to do something and anarchy prevails. I’m not sure if the governor has the power to relieve the mayor of his office, declare martial law and bring in the state police and start unilaterally cleaning the scum off the streets.

  • bunchesoffluff

    the lack of the national guard isnt the problem. the reason for so much violence is because corrupt gov memebers wont let the people defend themself, and they put so much restirctions on, disallowing people to be independent, exsessive regulations that diallow people to start up and expand business, some people are left bored w/o other ways to make $ except for crime.
    to reduce the crime you must give the people more freedom to be independent by freely useing land to care for themself, defend themself, and stop purposely surpessing good job creation via deliberate comepetition surpession. the gov control freaks need to be fired.
    legalize drugs, as long as you fully inform potential receptiant of risks and benefits before you give the uncoerced willing receptiant the drug it should be legal.
    stop overpunishing victimless and pety crimes, instead spend that time and resources to go after kidnappers and violent offenders.

  • Laura

    It seems quite obvious totire plan to militarize police in the streets of Chicago,was well thought out when they made Chicago a “gun free zone”,so that legal gun owners could not protect themselves against the criminal element. It is all part of a bigger plan,to get us used to the military on our streets.
    What is also outrageous is,they(the govt) could use their NSA spying to stop these gangs,right in their places,but have chosen not to. More proof that the NSA spying program is after political opponents,not the criminals themselves.
    This govt is out of control. They have dismantled the Constitution,piece by piece. Then prepared for the outcome ie;civil disobedience. We(the USA) have prisons filled with non violent offenders,whilst rapists and murderers carry on with impunity. Major changes need to take place,to restore our country to the great nation it had once been. Now,we are the laughing stock of all other civilized nations. Obama being the worst president ever-not qualified-declaring himself the King of our land.
    Before anyone cries that I am a Republican-WRONG! I am a Libertarian to the core.
    Pathetic,just plain pathetic!

    ALL the countries (109) above America have 100% gun bans. It might be of interest to note that SWITZERLAND
    (not shown on this list) has NO MURDER OCCURRENCE! However, SWITZERLAND’S law requires that EVERYONE:
    1. Own a Gun
    2. Maintain Marksman qualifications….. regularly
    3. “Carry”……..a Weapon.

  • Village-idiot

    Just give the law-abiding citizens guns: they’ll sort it out.

    But, the power-mad socialists can’t let that happen. It has to appear that the government is fixing the problem; the problem the government created in the first place.

  • cjay

    These politicians should be hunted, captured, tortured, hung, after given a fair trial, of course. Then the same for their relatives, children, fathers, mothers, and again, after they have been given a fair trial. Thats how you combat tyranny and discourage it.

  • borderraven

    She is correct in asking a State governor to declare Martial Law. If a county sheriff fails to request a governor declare Martial Law, or a governor fails to declare Martial Law, the president can unilaterally declare Martial Law.
    Setting aside Posse Comitatus Act is spelled out in 32CFR215, 10USC331, 10USC332 and 10USC333.
