    Quinn: Id Consider Using National Guard, State Police To Help Chicago

    Quinn: Id Consider Using National Guard, State Police To Help Chicago CBS Chicago

    Gov. Pat Quinn says he would consider using state resources to help combat Chicago street violence.

    Speaking about this weeks mass shooting in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, Quinn says hes open to talking with Mayor Emanuel about supplementing Chicago law enforcement with state police or the Illinois National Guard.

    You send IL National Guard to places like Iraq and Afghanistan and then you want to put them in an American city???? Are you out of your rabid ass mind?!?!?!?!?

    Chicago is as bad or worse than Kabul. They have to restore law. Either that or loosen gun ownership laws so that the law abiding have a chance.

    One of biggest problems with this approach is the National Guard might end up on a permanent assignment. That's because as long as the federal government insists on trapping people in a near escape proof web of government handouts, nothings going to change.

    I do believe it is illegal for the military to take up arms against its own citizens.

    Is the gov. saying his swat teams are not enough?

    The National Guard ordered by Gov. Romney and the Army ordered by LBJ came to Detroit as a result of the '68 riots.

    Unfortunately, the most effective rule these inner cities have is probably the no snitch rule. That way, a law abiding citizen probably has a better chance at justice than what the politicians are offering.

    The latter works pretty good everywhere else.

    They'll get the former by implementing the latter...

    I don't see a problem with it as long as it's part of a larger strategy to clean up the neighborhoods. Things are out of control and it has been shown in several ways that presence deters crime. But, it should not be a long term thing. The National Guard or state police would supplement current law enforcement, not take up arms against citizens.
