The Second City Cop’s whole post probably tells readers all anyone needs to know about how Chicago works and the connections between Cops, Gangs, Judges, and Aldermen. And yep, this nugget was over the top…
….this is just a wee bit over the top:
McCarthy returned to his battle analogy when the discussion turned to the shooting of two girls — ages 2 and 7 — on Wednesday night on a Northwest Side playlot. The 2-year-old was grazed in the head, and the 7-year-old has a serious back wound. Two men were being held for questioning in the shooting, which apparently was targeting gang members nearby. McCarthy said the department must send a message to the Maniac Latin Disciples, who are thought to be responsible.
“We’re going to obliterate that gang,” he said. “Every one of their locations has to get blown up until they cease to exist.”
We hate to sound so pessimistic, but the Department has had far too many teeth extracted to do anything of the sort.
