DHS to Patrol Chicago Streets?

I haven't seen this story on here but apologize if it's been covered.

I just read something that suggested that the 7000 defense rifles ordered by the DHS is a drop in the bucket, as in: What would we do/think if they ordered 50, 000 all at once? And don't forget about the billion rounds ordered. Well, when Jesse Jackson (I can't buy into the Rev. sobriquet) asks the Prez to send in armed partols to Chicago, I'm betting he will listen.


And actually, I thought we had a National Guard for this kind of thing.

If I was involved in the civil government of Chicago, this should be an embarrassment.

Chicago murder rate far worse than during Al Capone 'gangland' days

Media loves a story regardless what facts imply.

I've recently seen the term HSI agent used in several press releases. Apparently there are now Homeland Security Agents running around solely attached to DHS rather one of the agencies/bureaus.

Militarized national police force?

How could it possibly go wrong?

They're destroying the defense budgets while increasing DHS budgets. Cause for concern that they view our own population as the enemy?

Yes, because they are correct--we are their enemies just like they are our enemies. What concerns me is that they're way ahead of us in realizing this.

"When the president shows up, it shows ultimate national seriousness," said Jackson, a Chicago resident. He also called for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to help patrol the streets of Chicago.

Oh THAT isn't going to go over well.

The day we have Federal Homeland Security policing our own CITIZENS in our city streets is the day this country ceases to be the USA.

The Chicago problem is a CHICAGO problem. If the mayor and 12,000 Chicago police officers can't ****** deal with it, the people need to elect someone who CAN. They already have the equivalent of an entire frigging Infantry DIVISION on city payroll.

Maybe if those cops got out there and did their job, investigating and arresting criminals, instead of worrying about traffic enforcement and other unimportant CRAP, there wouldn't be such a high murder rate in Chicago.

Idiots.

Maybe I've seen too many movies but I think this is happening.:what:

There will be some stubborn holdouts, but a few well-publicized shootouts in local neighborhoods will have most lining up to turn in their weapons. Some will hide their guns to fight another day but the SWAT teams with blue helmets won't be marching in file like the redcoats.

What's key, IMO, is not to fight it out but vote it out. We've paid lip service to this notion forever but we need to do something rather than just bitch now. We're up against the massive 47% and growing every day voting bloc. We need a champion who will run for office and can win.

And it's not just Chicago. Wasn't this mentioned for Detroit not so long ago?

Well, to be fair I think they were using mortars and rocket launchers to shoot each other in Detroit. That town is scary. :)

Not that I'd be crazy about this solution...but why isn't the Illinois STATE Police being mentioned? Why DHS?

Does the federal government have a solution and have to be the solution for all problems?

" We need a National Security Force, just as trained as the Military, and just as equipped and funded as the Military" - Barack Obama 2008


So, he kinda warned us....

Not really gun related. Just because the people involved carry guns doesn't make this on topic here at THR
