Police Chief Blames ‘Pilgrims’, Cops for Chicago Violence

William Kelly, Washington Times, June 27, 2012

It’s official: With more than 240 dead, Chicago’s murder rate has surpassed the body count in war-torn Afghanistan. But as the city death toll continues to mount, outraged residents are asking questions and city officials are scrambling for answers—at least, the politically correct ones.

Answers that usually involve blaming dead white guys or ones that are still kicking.

But is politically correct silliness really what Chicago needs right now? Has the rhetoric of civil rights victimization from Rev. Jesse Jackson and Fr. Pfleger benefitted anyone in the black community?

Or do Chicagoans really need an unvarnished reality check from their public officials?

If it is the later, Chicago residents may have their work cut out for them.

Recently, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy joined black political leaders and community activists in a live radio forum, hosted by Clear Channel-owned WGCI-FM, to discuss Chicago’s violence epidemic and what—or who—is really to blame.

{snip}

When asked about the “gap” between law enforcement and the black community, McCarthy reached back 400 years for an answer.

“It’s a big issue. It’s a long time coming. We’ve done a lot of things wrong in policing in this country. I’m willing to admit that,” said McCarthy. “But this goes back 200-300 years to the time when Pilgrims came here and things developed from that, the African American experience in this country.”

But the Pilgrims weren’t the only people being blamed for the violence. The superintendent also laid blame at the feet of America’s finest and inferred—without actually stating it—that white police officers are the problem.

“Who has been the people enforcing those laws that were problematic for the African American community all these years? And that’s to me where it all starts,” stated McCarthy. “It starts with the recognition of how we got here and figuring out how we are going to move forward. By first confronting the issue. Recognition is the first step towards reconciliation. So that’s what I bring to the table. It’s one of those things that a lot of police chiefs in this country are afraid to talk about. I’m not afraid to talk about it because it’s out there and we’ve got to address it.”

Then WVON host Warren Valentine chimed in, blaming the Jim Crow era.

“It takes a village to raise a child and I’m not giving the parents a pass. But we can’t just say this is all on the parents and it ain’t all on nobody else. The legal system is the new Jim Crow system in America,” said Valentine. “You go on and look at what is going on in America today and compare it to when we look in the past. See a lot of people don’t understand the history of America.”

{snip}

By the end of the two-hour radio forum, it was the callers—not the “experts”—that plead for a return to family values. They weren’t blaming Jim Crow or Reconstruction. They weren’t engaging in the same politically correct gibberish.

Many more blamed parents and single-family households for the disintegration of personal responsibility.

V103 radio host Ramonski Luv called out to the live audience, “Parents, do you know where your children are?”

Well, Chicago, where are they?

Maybe the Pilgrims or the El Rukns would know.

  • This is the same genius who blamed Sarah Palin and the NRA when Chicago hired him:

    Video of  his latest genius rant:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4DYezG85EOA

    That this was on radio station WGCI and involves hosts on WVON does not surprise me.  WGCI is the station that apolitical moronic blacks in Chicago listen to, WVON is the station that political moronic blacks listen to.  Three years ago, during a retreat to southeastern Wisconsin, I heard a black caller to WVON call for the state to reduce murder to a misdemeanor:

    “You see, officer, that radar gun you used to clock my car doing 70 in that school zone back there has its roots in a time 200-300 years ago when the Pilgrims came here and things developed from that. I mean, who has been the people (sic) enforcing those laws that were problematic for drivers all these years? And to me that’s where it all starts. Why are you laughing?”

    • Actually it has its roots in Newtons theorys.

    • Has this bonehead ever heard of…Affica? Haiti?Jamaica? Or any and every location on the planet where the black male roots? because evry place where the black male hangs his hat he is violent and criminal. The pilgrims really were powerful!

  • ncpride

    And here I thought the blame Whitey game could sink no lower. Their rhetoric has gotten so ridiculous, even black people know it’s total nonsense. And for those who buy into it, know this: It is not White people running around killing you and yours, and blaming us will do NOTHING to save your youth. Until you face reality and take responsibility for your own actions, this killing will continue. We are not holding our breath, however.

    One other thought as well. If we (Whites) lose our majority status in this country, your new ‘leaders’, the Mexicans and Asians, will NOT wring their hands and blame themselves for your complete dysfunction, and they will not babysit you constantly like we have. Slavery will look attractive compared to what you are in for. On our current path, your days of shaking down YT are nearly over.

  • Every day I am more and more amazed about the complete DETACHMENT from reality that characterizes black thinking.  What in the HELL do PILGRIMS have to do with the gang wars that are ravaging Chicago?  So violent crime is exploding all across the city and the problem is that WHITE OFFICERS are too harsh in their enforcement of the laws?  If the legal system was the “New Jim Crow” wouldn’t that mean MORE gang bangers and blacks were in prison?  Oh and I love the whole “it takes a VILLAGE to raise a child” nonsense!  Yeah maybe in AFRICA it takes an entire village but for WHite people in the West it takes only 2, a mom and a dad. 

    “See a lot of people don’t understand the history of America.”

    Amen Black people, Amen.
     

    •  It wasn’t the black who said that pilgrims and black crime were related, it was the white police chief.

      One more thing:  At the beginning of the latest McCarthy genius pronouncement video, you will see and hear a black goofball asking why the cops and the black community have such a bad relationship.

      Duh, stupid.  Cops and thugs are supposed to have a bad relationship.  Do a hammer and nail have a rivalry?  Are they supposed to be harmonious with each other?  No, you use the hammer to bang the nail into some surface.  Likewise, cops arrest thug blacks and send them to jail, where they belong.

      •  I misread that the Police chief was white!  Holy Crap that makes it even WORSE!  Some idiot white in a position of power siding with the dark hordes that White Skin is the reason Shitavious and Jontelle are blasting each other to pieces.  Priceless!  Let’s Hope Chief McCarthy ( disgracing his Irish heritage) gets to be a participant in some polar bear hunting!

        • WhitesRdumb

           If he wasn’t a complete idiot, he would have never made Police Chief in a black city.

          • Strider73

            More likely he bribed his way into the position. Chicago is the most corrupt city in America, after all.

          • He got picked because he has a rep for doing all that CompStat crap. Rahm wnated to hire  black chief,you know he dearly wanted to,but he knew it wouldnt work. he didnt want some dumb ass gumming up HIS plans. So he hired Mccarthy AFTER he assured rahm that he was a GOOD boy!

          • curri

            Chicago is one-third black. Which is bad enough. 

        • dukem1

           Who cares if they’re blasting each other to pieces?  So long as we don’t get in the crossfire. let them blast away to their hearts’ content!

        • curri

          He was brought in from NJ  only just over a year ago to be Superintendent.  He’s obviously having trouble mastering the  PC Speak that’s mandatory for someone in his position.  

          You can be sure that he knows the score and nothing on this site about blacks would surprise him. He’s just a careerist who knows he has to spout nonsense to keep his job. 

    • WhitesRdumb

      “So CAL Snowman wrote: What in the HELL do PILGRIMS have to do with the gang wars that are ravaging Chicago?”

      Maybe it’s because the Pilgrims had belts to hold up their pants, and the black man does not. I know that if my pants kept falling down, and I saw pictures of privileged white Pilgrims with big blingin belt buckles in history class, I would start selling drugs and shooting people. The psychological and emotional trauma would be devastating.

    • Simple Snowman…the Pilgrims were White, thus a target for blame. It’s really that simple I believe.

  • IstvanIN

    There were no Pilgrims in Chicago.   And there haven’t been any in 400 years. 

    • Hundreds of years ago and hundreds of miles away, but that doesn’t matter, they were White Men oppressing blacks who were still in Africa at the time.

  • Biff_Maliboo

    I knew it was those darn pilgrims! I just knew it!

    I think the chief has just out-Sharpton’d and out-Jackson’d both of those usual suspects.

  • “It’s a big issue. It’s a long time coming. We’ve done a lot of things wrong in policing in this country. I’m willing to admit that,” said McCarthy. “But this goes back 200-300 years to the time when Pilgrims came here and things developed from that, the African American experience in this country.”

    So…you still think these people want to live peacefully amongst us! As long s the White race survives, we will be to blame for the failures of black folk in this country. If that were not bad enough, we have various other minority groups jumping on the “blame whitey” bandwagon, as they have seen how effective it can be.

    • I want in on the gravy train. I need to forge some documents that say I’m Native American. Maybe I’ll renounce my US citizenship while I’m still the the country, that would make me an illegal. The worst thing to be in this country is a white, male, heterosexual, taxpayer. Its like the twilight zone, scary scary sh*t.

  • Sloppo

    This is the kind of story that makes it hard to use sarcasm.  It’s hard to say something stupid enough to let people know that you are joking when Chicago’s police chief is blaming white pilgrims who lived on the coast five hundred years ago for the criminal violence of black people in Chicago today.

  • ncpride

    If you click on the orginal article, look at the photo and the expression on Rahm Emanuels face. It says to me… HA! What a total tool this guy is!

    • WhitesRdumb

       Look at the blurry guy next to Rahm.

    • Up to my neck in CA

      He looks so smug!

  • MekongDelta69

    Does AmRen have a giant ROFL icon I can use about 1,000x?

    (If not, could you ‘axe’ Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy to invent one please? Or maybe one of our Pilgrim readers could ‘axe’ the good Supt.? Anybody from Plymouth, Mass. here?)

  • Church_of_Jed

    We are for more aggressive policies that force White policemen to stand down when the Diversity community is enganged in the business of self policing.  The more George Zimmerman Community Service Award winners, the better.

  • Easyrhino1

    Until people are willing to wake up to reality:  

    Black communities being blasted with giant ray guns from deep space (Planet X) causing them to lose all sense of impulse control.

    We will never solve this crisis.

  • WhitesRdumb

    “When asked about the “gap” between law enforcement and the black community, McCarthy reached back 400 years for an answer.”

    It started when Adam stole an apple off the black man’s tree. Adam also stole his white woman. After that, everything went down hill.

    Actually it all started when people in this country believed the black man had something worthwhile to say.

    It sounds like it is a very good thing Chicago got rid of the Robert Taylor Housing Project…some one must have seen it coming…

      PHILANTHROPIC GANGS AND POLICE – TENANT – GANG JUSTICE

      Chicago’s Robert Taylor Homes public-housing development is the largest subsidized residential complex in the world. Six of the poorest US census areas with populations above 2,500 are found there. Ninety-five percent of the housing development’s 20,000 residents are unemployed and list public assistance as their only income source.

        Welcome to the Chicago Housing Authority
        CHA is the largest owner of rental housing in the city of Chicago, providing homes to more than 50,000 families and individuals, while supporting healthy communities in neighborhoods all across the city. CHA has more than 9,200 apartments in buildings designated for seniors and over 11,400 units in family and other housing types. It also oversees the administration of 37,000 Housing Choice vouchers that allow low-income families to rent in the private market.

          The FBI reportedly gave Farrakhan’s company(a private security guard service)   1 million dollars worth of hand guns to arm these private security guards of the RTHProject…is that like the FBI giving one million dollars worth of hand guns to say…uh, a group declared to be in existence for the purpose of killing white people because they are white and because G– said so?

            Holder gave guns to Mexican gangsters. There is a pattern developing.

  • It’s so simple, a gun buyback program with jobs. Just trade in your gun and you will receive a job. That will solve all the problems in the black community. They’re not violent, lazy, racist, ungrateful, welfare-sucking, white-hating opportunists. Black people just want to put in an honest day’s work, if only we would let them.

  • Oil Can Harry

    Laws that were problematic for the African-American community?

    Those would be the laws outlawing murder. rape, robbery, welfare fraud, etc.

  • KenelmDigby

    So, apparently, the travails of a ship-load of religious dissenters landing on a rocky shore nigh on 400 years ago – people who had never seen a black person in their lives – are directly responsible for blacks ( supermarket, ipod using, well dressed, well shod, hot and cold running water, central heating etc) in 2012 shooting each other – in an environment that is as far removed from the original wooden stockade at the edge of the world that could possibly be imagined.

    • Sloppo

      I think it’s just as likely that the elves that live in a hollow tree and make Keebler Cookies are responsible for Chicago’s black criminal violence.  Perhaps I should forward that tip on to the Chicago Police Department.

  •  “Who has been the people enforcing those laws that were problematic for the African American community all these years?”

    yep, dem laws sho do be problematical fo’ us criminals, things sho would be easy wit out dem laws, unowutimsayen?

  • anarchyst

    It’s the defective black pathology that fuels the violence that is endemic and part of black culture.
    Being “disrespected” calls for immediate action, by knife or gun.  Everyshere blacks congregate, there is violence.
    In Florida, “young master trayvon” was disrespected by neighborhood watchman Mr. Zimmerman for asking about his “business” being in that neighborhood.  Any ordinary (non-black) person would have explained that he had relatives in the neighborhood and would have been on his way, but not young master trayvon.  In order to regain his “respect” “young master trayvon” was “forced” (by his defective black pathology) to jump Mr. Zimmerman and murder him.
    In a related note, it is no surprise that many towns and cities “close up shop” when black college students “celebrate” their “spring break” week.  It is just not worth it to cater to this naturally violent segment of American “society”.  It is far better to “go on vacation” than to deal with the unruly and violent black hordes.

  • Dealing with blacks is pointless. Everyone is to blame for their problems except them.

    Add a laugh track to this interview and you have a Saturday Night Live skit.

    If the white mans’ laws and the white mans’ community standards  don’t work for black folk, why do blacks demand to be around whites?

    If you follow their ‘logic’, black folk should be safest living without the white mans’ rules; preferably in their own communities.

    Even when things got worse, it would still be the fault of the white mans’ racist history.

    There is no solution that blacks would accept and no solution that will work.  

  • “It takes a village to raise a child and I’m not giving the parents a pass.”
     
    You RAISE livestock. You REAR children. That people don’t know this difference is just a small piece of this problem.
     
    Are the parents, the black family to blame? Without a doubt.
     
    It doesn’t take a village to REAR a child, it takes loving, caring, supportive parents. That blacks fall back on this mythical ‘village’ to REAR their children is indicative as to how they shirk their parental responsibilities.  

  • Tom

    I am all in favor of helping the developmentally disabeled find jobs, however, law enforcement is not one of those areas. Perhaps McCarthy can find a job elsewhere.

  • Dave4088

    So the police chief of a city run by IDF veteren Rahm Emmanuel says that blacks are not in any way responsible for the wave of violence and savagery that has made Chicago more dangerous than Afghanistan.   In fact, the legacy of white racism and the pilgrims are the culprits for black violence and misbehavior.   Isn’t this angle getting a little stale?  And can’t the dim bulbs of the political left wing think of anything new?   
     
    Garry McCarthy and the gaggle of anti-white activists that came up with this hare brained theory should be administered drug tests then put in straight jackets and placed in padded white rooms for observation. 

    Note: An activist is usually a complete failure in life who blames all of his or her problems on the white race.  Activism also beats working a real job where one is expected to exhibit competence in a trade or profession.    

  • What a piece of work this new York idiot McCarthy is. He got down on bended knee to beg rahm for this job and vowed that tho he,himself,was,sadly,white,that he would vigorously enforce DIE-versity to the max and happily betray his people in hiring and promotions in the CPD. How about blaming  the Mexicans?

  • All gave some. Some gave all.

  • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

    Answers that usually involve blaming dead white guys or ones that are still kicking.

    Oh man… is it funny or messed up that when I read “still kicking” the first image that popped in my head was the recently deceased St. Rodney getting the holy stuffing kicked out of him?

    “It takes a village to raise a child and I’m not giving the parents a
    pass. But we can’t just say this is all on the parents and it ain’t all
    on nobody else.

    It takes a village to raise black children because their biological sires seem to have so little interest in doing so. Black parents in America are given nothing but a pass.

    See a lot
    of people don’t understand the history of America.”

    True. Black in particular are woefully ignorant of how the States got to this point, and in particular their own largely parasitic role in these events.

  • ageofknowledge

    These modern liberals really are clinically insane.

    • curri

      The Supt. is not a liberal-he just knows that he has to pander to the insanity of the ruling hostile elite.  

      Opponents of the Regime have to organize at the grass roots level.  They  should champion devolution to  the state and local level and freedom of association.  

      As is the norm in history, the majority will cling to the existing dysfunctional system until five minutes to midnight-or later.  That’s why activists should form small groups  to work to change local govt charters to implement low threshold proportional representation (i.e., the Israeli method) so that  ideological minorities can get a foothold within the dying but still powerful system.  And, hard as it is to believe, holding elective office is a more effective method for gaining  mass respect and credibility  than forming “militias” or building “compounds” in isolated areas. 

  • What the police supt. said is bizarre to say the least, and it’s very hard to understand his reasoning, but it can be explained using physics.  You see, large black populations distort reality and time, kinda like how water refracts light,  or how magnetism and gravity affect motion.  Large concentrations of blacks are called black holes , and normally rational whites who get near the concentration of blacks will  lose their ability to reason, and if they get near enough they fall under control of the black mass. Inertia also plays a roll with the large concentration of blacks, as a body at rest tends to stay at rest, so the concentration of blacks appear to be in an arrested arrested state of decay. Chicago is classified as a super giant black mass, so large that it is sucking in neighboring areas. The only larger black masses are located on haiti and the african continent

  • chickensandkittens

    My first instinct was to point out that those murderers in Chicago are not old enough to remember Jim Crow– and to ask  how many generations hence black criminals would be able to blame their anti-social behavior on the past.

    My second instinct was to decide that I will personally begin blaming all my faults on the bondage that my Irish ancestors suffered, as well as the trail of tears my great, great, great etc. grandmother walked, as well as the religious persecution my protestant grandfather escaped in 1698 when he immigrated from England to South Carolina.

    Now, finally, all that is left to be done is for the government to build 30 foot razor wire fences around cities like Chicago and Detroit and let them all kill each other. 

  • Grim

    Ah I love to see all the kids in Newton splattered all over. Blame this on a black thug you racist fucks.

  • StillModerated

    And furthermore, Chicago is worse than Newtown CT with regard to schoolkids’ safety.
