Chicago Cops: Meh, Burglaries and Car Thefts Will Just Have to Wait

The increase in violent crime is directly related to Chicago's tough gun laws. Criminals have access to fully automatic guns that even police don't carry. What is most disturbing with this new policing policy is announcing it publicly, now criminals know help will not be forthcoming. It is now open season on defenseless homeowners, predated upon by drug addicts looking for money and valuables. Politicians are always protected, now the public is not.

As the violence in Chicago rages on, Chicago police are having to pool their resources in order to focus on the murder crisis in the Windy City, leaving other victims of violent crime practically on their own and unarmed. More from CBS Chicago:

Starting this week, Chicago police are changing their responses to 911 calls. They’ll no longer come right away to reports of things like criminal damage to property, vehicle thefts, garage burglaries, or other crimes in which the suspect is no longer on the scene, and the victim isn’t in immediate danger.
