Illinois State Rep: The Chicago Police Are The Ones Killing Black Youth
Her proof? The killers are not being arrested.
Illinois State Representative Monique Davis is blaming the Chicago Police Department for the high number of killings in the Windy City. She is not just blaming the CPD for bad policing, though. She wonders if the police are doing some of the killing. [...]
"There’s some suspicion -- and I don't want to spread this, but I'm just going to tell you what I've been hearing -- they suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids."
One reason "there's some suspicion," Davis said, is because there have been few arrests for the dozens of murders perpetrated on the streets of the city. Lack of arrests leads Davis to believe police are the actual killers because there are no perpetrators being fingered.
By default, if investigators can't identify a perpetrator, then it must be the police doing the killings. Yeah, that makes sense. To the voters of Chicago's South Side district, WTF is wrong with you?
BTW, if you don't want to spread a ridiculous, unsubstantiated rumor, then maybe you shouldn't, um, SPREAD IT!
