Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel: Screw the Stupid, Phony Crime Stats, I Care about Individual Sob Stories! Besides, Crime is Dropping; Why Didn't Anyone

Impose My Worthless Policies Sooner?

Rahm Emanuel has to make those bodies and shooting stats disappear. It’s his only hope.

Right now, he’s got a conflict between his phony numbers showing crime dropping month after month, for over three years, and all these dead and wounded every extended weekend—for shooting purposes, in Chicago the weekend starts on Thursday night. (The first quarter of this year versus the same period last year shows homicides up 60 percent and non-fatal shootings up 37 percent, but crime overall down 10 percent, and rape down 15 percent.)

Something’s gotta give. Rahm is doing his best imitation of a black pol, dealing in contradictions and emotionalism, but he’s a white Jew; what blacks love coming from a fellow black or honorary black like Bill Clinton, they despise coming from a non-black, especially from a Jew like Rahm, whom King “Barack” himself stabbed in the back during the election, even if Emanuel is a Democrat.

So, what he’s got to do is make the shooting and, particularly, homicide stats match the other crime stats. (Everyone on the street will know it's a farce, but they love being pandered to, and the more implausible the lie, the better.)

What’s that you say, “You can’t just make bodies disappear?” Of course, not. You make reports disappear. The bodies are in the morgue (and eventually, the cemetery), the hospital, and briefly, the emergency room. But if there’s no report that a shooting or homicide occurred, then it never happened. And since the killers are virtually all black, if there should be fewer reports of raceless shooters wounding and killing raceless vics, the media will play ball.

I have only one example of such practices in action, but suspect there are many more.

As I wrote in my August, 1996, investigative report, “Crime Stories” for Chronicles magazine,
… on January 29, 1996, Newsday’s Leonard Levitt charged that the city had failed to disclose a recent double-rape, a shooting homicide, and the fatal shooting of a car thief by a cop.

Levitt only learned about the four incidents (the rape victims were a mother and daughter), because either victims or their survivors contacted him. The NYPD’s response was that some mysterious reporter had stolen the sheets with the reports of those incidents from the Press Room at One Police Plaza.

(An old, retired copper friend reminds me not to take anything from Levitt, an old lefty hater of white cops—unless they’re pc—on faith, but the facts seemed to back him up at the time.)

My hunch is that over the past 20 or so years, an awful lot of “reporters” have been “stealing” those press room incident reports in New York and other cities claiming massive reductions in violent crime, especially shootings and homicides.

One can have a corpse in a morgue drawer, yet retain a certain “flexibility” in what one writes on his toe tag. “Accidental death,” “suicide,” “undetermined,” etc.

I’m not saying that the Chicago PD should lie about homicides and non-fatal shootings the way it lies about everything else, only that as long as Chicago remains majority black and Hispanic, and those groups are dominated by racist ethnic gangs and violent, racial supremacist ideologies, the city’s crime situation will not improve. (There’s your triad: Demographics, ideologies, and group practices.)

Mayor Emanuel on crime stats

Mayor Rahm Emanuel defended his crime fighting strategies Thursday in the face of statistics that show a 60 percent rise in homicides in Chicago so far this year.

Asked whether he can reassure Chicagoans that his policies work despite the surge in violence in the first months of 2012, Emanuel wondered why some of the initiatives he and Police Supt. Garry McCarthy have undertaken were not done earlier.

"The question is -- you can say 'Are you doing it right?' -- the question is, why were those policies not done before? Why was it the police department was not organized to have a gang audit to do pro-active efforts to intervene on reprisal shootings that are driving the numbers? We're doing that," Emanuel said.

The mayor pointed to an earlier curfew he pushed for young children, his effort to reassign police officers from desk jobs to patrol and other changes he has backed in an effort to lower crime.

He also said he didn't want to dwell on the statistics, then pointed out overall crime is down and he has been mayor less than a year.

"I don't want to get into statistics, because these are human stories. As I just told you, we have -- overall crime is down 10 percent," Emanuel said. "I've been in office 10 months."

From Jan. 1 through April 1 this year, 120 homicides were recorded in Chicago, up from 75 in the same period in both 2011 and 2010, according to Chicago Police Department statistics. Nonfatal shootings totaled almost 490 in the first three months of 2012, up 37 percent from a year earlier.

Crime in every other major category fell, including a 15 percent drop in sexual assaults and a 10 percent decline in burglaries. Overall crime dropped 10 percent citywide, according to the department.

"I am not happy at all with the statistics, and beyond the statistics are the human tragedies that occur, and the terror in this city," Emanuel said at a news conference to announce investments in clean-up of the Chicago River with Gov. Pat Quinn on Goose Island.
