After Trump criticism on Chicago violence, Emanuel touts police smarts
Trump and Emanuel are ignoring a number of key factors behind the violence and offering only greater surveillance and militarization of the police as a remedy. This makes them part of the collusion between the Justice Department, FBI, US Attorney for the Northern Illinois District, Mayor’s Office, and the Chicago Police Department in enabling drug trafficking in the city, particularly in minority neighborhoods. The case of the Austin Seven is a perfect example: officers who were effective in removing drug trafficking were framed and imprisoned, or transferred to desk jobs, so that drug trafficking could resume, as statistics show.
