Chicago's homicide rate decreases for the third straight year
"Three years ago Chicago saw a record number of shootings in two thousand sixteen more than four thousand people shot more than seven hundred fifty killed. That was the most the city had seen in two decades. Both Chicago in two thousand nineteen on a more hopeful note. Preliminary number I show a steep drop in shootings and homicides. WBZ reporter Patrick Smith has been following the stats and updates us on the new numbers and puts it all in perspective breath so there were four hundred and ninety two people murdered in Chicago so we talk about progress but still almost five hundred people murdered there. Were Twenty six hundred shooting victims terms and about twenty one hundred shooting incidents so that you know they're incidents where more than one person is shot so twenty six hundred people shot four hundred. Ninety people murdered both all of those numbers though are are better than than last year. I'm put that in context for us when we look at the past few years. Two thousand eighteen two thousand seventeen and then of course that big jump in two thousand sixteen right exactly so twenty twenty sixteen we had this historic increase. Since then. We've been coming down this year's numbers it's about ten the shootings down about ten percent compared to last year the doubt about thirty thirty five percent compared to two thousand sixteen so we are were were just about back to where we were before that two thousand sixteen spike in violence so that's the macro macro level but when we look at the neighborhood level and where we're seeing significant changes. What can you tell us about that? Well you're going to hear me say this a lot which is like comparing things to twenty sixteen and looking at that. Because we're we're seeing the biggest decreases on the west side of Chicago like The Austin Police District which covers most of the neighborhood of Austin on on the west side that had an almost twenty percent reduction in murders last year for twenty nine eighteen the other westside neighborhoods west areas had thirteen fifteen percent reduction then shootings the west side is what got hit the hardest in two thousand sixteen. It's where the violence was the worst in two thousand sixteen end for the first couple years after that twenty seventeen two thousand eighteen. Even there was some sort of stubborn violence levels. Were still remarkably high and some of those areas so we saw the biggest reduction on the west side their parts of the south side that also had reductions most of the south side and the north side had reductions in violence although there are a few neighborhoods that are still suffering. You know well not just all. There are many neighbors the city that are suffering from violence still but most of the the city saw. Sr Reduction in shootings here Turley back the interim superintendent of CD. How a New Year's Eve press conference releasing the numbers and here's what he had to say about why he? I thought this was happening. Some of the things that have allowed us to to make these reductions I've talked about Particularly our partnerships with faith based community and our partnerships with street outreach workers workers and our partnerships with community based organizations those are really important but also technology has aided Chicago PD okay so he's talking about partnerships and technology starting with the partnerships. What do we know about how? CD's approaching community in the shootings. Well one thing we know is that this this year You Know Actually Mayor Emanuel created it but then now mayor lightfoot invested more in the city's Office of gun violence prevention people are calling for her to do to invest a lot more money anything then what she has to sort of get us on par with New York and Los Angeles. But that's this office that suppose to give a comprehensive approach gun violence prevention. So it's not just about policing you know there was a lot of philanthropic dollars that went into gang outreach street outreach after two thousand sixteen and we actually heard you know I heard from Eddie Bocanegra. Who Works for Heart Lennon runs this outreach program called ready Chicago that that works with people who are closest to gun violence? He gave a lot of credit to two former Chicago. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. WHO said that He? We really worked really closely with street. Outreach workers that there were district level commanders who worked with them at and coordinated with them and that it wasn't all you know police in law and order. I obviously the police are there to maintain law and order but that they knew that there were better and maybe other ways to approach gun violence besides just just going as hard as you could it at people when you say street outreach. What does that actually mean? So that that's a really good question so there are kind of different versions of that the sort of the version that maybe people are most familiar with. Is something like ceasefire. cease-fire what's called cure violence now where you have people who are former gang members people who are close to gang members who go out and just mediate conflicts and try to prevent people from shooting shooting at one another another Eddie Bocanegra who. I just mentioned. He used to do that. What he says what they're doing now and there are a few different organizations? That are doing this. You're just outreaching to say. Hey don't shoot each other you're saying don't shoot each other and we'd like to give you a job or we'd like to get you some therapy or we'd like to give you something we're not just saying don't shoot we're saying here's an alternative and so there has been more investment in that from from the private sector from philanthropic groups in the last few years. What's really but people have been pushing for the city to start investing more and paying for that to happen and so that you can give give people an outlet in an alternative to to you know violent crime so we hurt the interim superintendent they are also talking about technology? What role is stop playing? Yeah so that's something like the police in the last few years or put something called shot. Spotter which is supposed to use sound to detect. When there's been a shooting so they don't have to wait for nine one one call so police can can respond more quickly to them? There's also they've got more cameras that they've got these strategic support centers in the districts. That's supposed to combine all the different tech- technological the logical options. They have to sort of make response quicker and get more street level information to the police. You know that's something that University of Chicago really helped pilot. They've done research. It is their program program. But they've done research on their own program to say that they saw reductions in the district where they put that technology in their Beyond that you know. We have more police officers than we did. A few years ago there was this is pushed one thousand more police officers under Mayor Emanuel. That happened And then I think one thing that Charlie Beck is not going to talk about is just regression to the mean. Statistically we we had this huge spike horrific by two thousand sixteen were You know statistician might tell you that we're just sort of coming back to normal. I think the big question is going to be are. Are these reductions things where we can keep making progress and actually get back. Get back to a better place get better than we were before. Two Thousand Sixteen rather than just sort of getting back to what is honestly an unacceptable level level of violence five hundred murders a year. No one's going to tell you that. That's okay so we're we're we're back down about five hundred. The question is can we take that next step and actually see real reductions and not. Just get back to where we were before two thousand sixteen and put these numbers into context when we look at other big cities like New York or La. Well New York had a slight increase in its murders this year. La I believe leave state about flat. We still have a lot more murders here in Chicago Than New York and Los Angeles. It used to be that we had more murders than New York. Combine that's not exactly true. That's not quite true this year however they had If you put them together there at about five hundred fifty murders for this year they have millions and millions more people in New York in Los Angeles so as far as murder rate were nowhere near them we had about you know we had about fifty fewer murders in Chicago than New York and Los Angeles together so these are just preliminary numbers we should say a The official figures will come out after the FBI does their audit. How much of a change could we see between the numbers that are being reported right now by C. p. d. and the numbers that come from the FBI not a huge change For Murders for instance you know I think in two thousand seventeen the changes about seven murders from from when they preliminary members to what they actually sent to the FBI. So you'll see that change. I mean sadly that that some of that has to do with a person who shot on December thirtieth and then dies a few days later and that changes inches from shoot a shooting incident to a murder. Obviously all of this is very tragic. So you'll see some changes in the numbers but nothing that's going to throw off these percentages or the big picture takeaways Geico as well in a press conference earlier this week Interim Chicago Police Superintendent Charlie back and we have to stress here he is interim he. He's made very clear that he's not interested the permanent job but he laid out what he hopes to achieve while he is in office. What did he say? Well one thing that I thought was really interesting. He spent a lot of time talking about clearance rates. You know this is how detectives detectives do solving murders and he said that the CPT had a fifty three percent clearance rate this year. That's the highest. It's been in nine years you should look at. WBZ's chip Mitchell's is reporting to to see sort of diving into those numbers more. Not not this year but in the past of how they calculate those clearance rates. I won't get into it but it doesn't mean that they solve half of the murders that happen this year either way. It's great if they're at a nine year high. There was a report that came out earlier this year that really criticized the the detective division homicide Detective Division Chicago. Charlie Charlie back said he's going to be implementing things that were recommended there. I think that that's a big priority for him for his time. Here is getting our detectives to get to a better solve rate solving thing. More murders which increases trust in in in the department among residents and hopefully prevents future violence. So we have to again remind people that CBD's operating under a consent consent decree right now. Charlie Beck let the LAPD through its own consent decree at least part of it. How much power will he have to? Maybe implement some of the changes that are recommended in that decree. Well I think he has a lot of power of making it clear whether or not it's a priority and I wanna be clear that that what I've heard from people is that Eddie Johnson the former superintendent. This was a priority for him. Two people did believe that he truly believed in the changes but there are also problems where they said. There's not enough resources to this. Not everyone in the department is totally buying in. I think Charlie back with with the experience that he has might know what resources are needed to to get a higher level of compliance with the consent decree and make that a priority. I certainly heard from people who were hopeful about him. As interim because of his experience in Los Angeles as you mentioned that he'll make consent decree compliance a real priority of his interim administration and really quickly any word on the search for a permanent superintendent for CD. I have not heard any word. I mean the the applications I believe are due by the end of this week. Maybe next week I I expect that the police board will Abbas recommendations by March or April that's WBZ criminal justice reporter Patrick Smith Patrick. Thanks

"Forty six on WGN was taken a few minutes here just to visit with and all the men on the Chicago city council we're talking about Michelle Smith in the forty third ward not just about the lobbying rules and regulations that their their their past they've passed but also I wanted to ask you about the superintendent Eddie Johnson before we do all of that the Michelle you said this is the first time that the Chicago city council has had some sort of ethics oversight committee is that right that's correct it was just formed when likely ministration came in and I'm the chair of it and it's a real honor to do it I'm a former federal prosecutor and I've worked on ethics issues my entire term and it's great that there is the infamous impetus for change now you agree with the way the mayor's handle that he Johnson and his dismissal yes do you think that it's been a fair process for him yes I would say from my shared experience we need to turn his office I recognized exactly how she felt you know when you're working with someone usually witnesses we don't like surprises and we don't like not being able to deal with the facts as they really are so I think had the superintendent leveled from the beginning of what had really happened that day I'm sure that I'm sure that none of this is happening now what happens yeah yeah I I guess it's hard to say that when asked about that mayor life with said that she said on this radio station a couple of days ago that it was the action not the live but the line made it worse but even if he had been truthful she it sounds like would have asked him for his dismissal either way well easterly big I I don't know if he would have been allowed to just retire at that moment and resign up but when you if you know when you work with someone in a in a position of trust the person who trusted you is terrorist when you reach it I understand it if it spills over yeah and that's really that that is the problem that we have when we are expected to participate in someone else's embarrassment or improper conduct or you know especially from a position of trust as an elected official do you know what exactly what happened have you seen the video or you privy to what exactly how old no no I'm very sorry that I guess I found in the Tribune today that you know somebody might work for thirty years for the people of Chicago and then had his worst day ever and maybe it's not that's why I use the word fair and Eric kind of acylated on this point he's taking a side that but maybe it's not fair to judge Eddie Johnson by his worst today his worst moment in fact I don't I I wouldn't judge and on the basis of that however he has to he has to step down I mean I I wouldn't I would not catch his career as a base that the plastic thank you he yeah hi good to police superintendent in many many ways but this is not well I think people concluded it was time for him to retire because of health issues and a lot of other things minutes sorry it had to it's too bad it had to end this way but I don't think he will be judged this is a final on its final a moment and that's really up to the public the media everybody else the question is are we obligated to cover it up that's my question are we obligated to cover it up when a when a person does something stupid well you tell me it in today's culture that is what we do and whether we should begin well I guess it depends on what the it is right so if if it's the person he was having a drink with this may be a fault more the media's than the mayors she tried to bury that point but I don't think it's any of our business who he was having a drink with if if he's lying about being inebriated or for that matter if the police officers gave them the past then you've got a couple of issues for us all to deal with their if it's ten fifty one and your suffering from it was sounds like a cough Michelle is that correct no one little this one little Cup okay because I've got a little bit of that and I thought I don't want to keep you any longer than you can but I wondered if you just had a minute about the marijuana retail points are going to have at the first of the year and some of the rules and regulations about where you can where you can't smoke what what do you see coming down the road on that I think that where we are right now is it is a good place you know we've taken a how many got the long against smoking in public places the point of well gave incorrect smokers there you you know when yeah and of course people aren't smokers don't even like is that right yet the walk that he's the smoke as you are as you are walking down the cost we become more more aware of the help with that so no one is eight one that is still technically illegal in the United States my we have one here is still you know it's gonna have a national consensus on so I think it is fair to say you know your own business in a company known home and no don't let the people well it wouldn't take I I am personally comfortable about marijuana I am a generation with a lot of people with them I thought and plantations by the artist so I and alcohol right so we have to be very careful about how this kind of institutions are licensed and it's going to happen so we're going to be very careful when we when we come to the point of having a license I think it's going to be very interesting when the Chicago police have to sort of in for some of these laws the story in the paper this morning Chicago cops are being encouraged to explain the new law to residents caught violating it rather than take punitive measures right away particularly in the initial months but the law will define a public place and you cannot be seen smoking marijuana in a public place as anywhere where a person could reasonably be expected to be observed by others that means you can get high in the park or in the school you can't be walking down the sidewalk and getting high on the street the police department will issue citations to users on private porches balconies or backyards that can be seen by neighbors are passers by and I just think that's going to be a whole world of trouble for the police if they're going to China for something like that I will have to the goal line so what you've described except for the private porches went to the movies after drinking the public way you are not allowed to drink in public not allowed to drink in our parks or beaches and please know how don't force that right I mean some people use their discretion from Dublin on yeah right sometimes they take it the I know that they're interested so I think that there is a local police discretion and I think that's actually very advanced policing but the one yeah right when they see the tickets right away just say Hey next time Middleton come March we're not going to be so nice about it January first maybe we'll give you a pass that's correct I think that that actually responsible policing and leading people to have a lot of notice you know mine you know all this stuff having the police tell you that it was that you kind of get no warning the first time you no hold over her traffic stop and you want to move the ball looks like I'm new around here well okay I have always used discretion often robbery sometimes not only main question I called a moderate the police officers alderman Michelle Smith's from the forty third ward I'm not really glad that they have that committee sounds like you're the right person to chair it it's.

And Rahm does not seem very happy unwavering in their belief that he is extremely guilty and infuriates that he's not owning up to it. But any varius as rhyme and not putting any blame on the state's attorney's office. When asked he kept saying, this is just a small let who did this. It's you know, how can you not be mad at the state's attorney's office. You're at a graduation, for God's sakes, the handling of it is very closed doors. He will definitely. Allow discussion. What was so interesting about obviously. Now, we're seeing the other side of this as much as we're going to see at this point. Because he said, you know, the case is sealed you're not going to get the information is it sealed. Why do they cases to good question? I forgot to ask which link off that. But you know, what's so interesting is that when mayor Emanuel talked about the shepherd laws and everything else going on in this country. You can see that this case is just taken to another level. That's why it's a national story. You know, everything going on in this country right now with hate crime. It's just you know, he said biz because you have a little influence and wealth that you can get away with things. And now, it's you know, what happens to the next person who doesn't have the resources that. Jesse smell. That has the terrible disadvantage, obviously isn't using allegedly using the evidence. Yup. For further Bill, don't get it. I don't get how this could have been overturned getting back something you just said about why it's such a big story. I know that here in Chicago because it's happening here Kogyo all the TV stations. Most of the radio stations talk stations. That's the focus is do you think this is getting as much press, Nick? CNN they were carrying it live. It's all done. Our ABC news call which goes to, you know, every radio station in this end, the appeal hear appeals a strange word. But the reason that it is. So magnetic is because of what you just said, unfortunately, I don't I'm glad that mayor emanuel's getting that point out because the reason it is getting so much play. Hollywood actor, right? And because it's highly unusual that completely turns around like rice in an emergency situation like at the drop of a hat. You know, there's so many of the texts early on as the story was breaking a few short hours ago were well, of course, he's going to get his way, he's rich he's powerfully successfully famous. That's kind of turning out to be true. Isn't it as the day plays on? And appears that way. And I question this not to disagree with you. But just because I'm so completely confused. Yes. He has great attorneys, but there's also a legal system that you have to adhere to. And it's not like the Chicago police department is letting him go. Was saying that, you know grand jury. Indicted him on sixteen council grand juries a little bit of that evidence. Indicted him on sixteen counts. And you don't forget that. You know, the FBI is still also investigating that letter that he received. There wasn't much mention about that. No. So the end a little bit ROY manual at the very end brought that back in the play. Right. So there is a possibility that he didn't write that either. He didn't. Wait and seizes says, but heading they already proved that it was his handwriting, and that he was responsible or my imagining sure. I sure about what was proved and I know that he hasn't been charged. On the ladder the FBI because that's male fry is fat. All right. We have to ramp up. I want you to ponder something tonight. And if you have a quick answer feel free, but what aside from the fact that he's not going to go to jail. What good is this to him? I believe well, he's. Itself. And it's still still don't believe them. And now, I almost feel like they're mad at him for finding a way out of it. Is empire gonna hire them back doubt, it well, you I mean from a legal standpoint, he's no longer guilty of the charges. So so if they didn't hire them he could almost almost go back to them for saying, you raise that he apparently this guy when the freedom to do whatever he wants now for I just don't get it of innocent until proven guilty. He was he was indicted. Yeah, we all thought he was it seemed it seemed clear cut, but it wasn't cloud charges. Charge. But now he's clean slate clean slate. But you know, what I knew nickname thing is. He has live with himself. And the fact that he said, he wouldn't be his mother, son. If he was that was interesting. Him you guys? I believe anyone to Wendy. We just saw the other side now. And but we don't know, right. You're never going to know.

"Here in Chicago. I heard him being interviewed on another show talking about just expressing the outrage that so much of Chicago police departments resources were us to to find this is I thought it was amazing police work to from a grainy images with with inaccurate description of who they were for them to find these guys it shows us what they can do in Chicago while we have less than a twenty percent clearest rate on the murders in Chicago. But I don't know if you were listening yesterday Andrei was it yesterday. When Eddie Johnson said this wasn't treated any way special because he's a celebrity, but this is how they treat hate crimes. And so I say, let's call all the crimes tocado hate crimes. And then they'll solve them as fast they solve this one. Welcome to the Stephanie trussell show. Hi, how you doing? I wanna say Hello to the radio audience. You know, I'm glad to be on your show. Thank you so much, and I think you for driving a teaching to the south and west side of Chicago in the black community. Yes, we're treated unfair. We don't have the resources are Campbell that I- communities don't work when it comes down to downtown and the white rich folks work baked ham was work when the table to Jesse or empire any other routes courses, they get resources they climb up on the blacks in in the south side of Chicago on the west side. We have people that for nine years. Spoke to detective we are told that they don't have enough detectors, but we've seen the difference. When it came to this Jesse store where Eddie Johnson said none of the police officers who were taking off their regular rotation. This is just the normal routine for hate crime. So we I've heard as many as twelve or thirteen detectives assigned to this and somebody even said twenty four right? I've heard twenty four as well. That's unbelievable. When you follow the crime in Chicago, the daily violence, and you see those faces and those names, and they do stats on so many different pages using about all those people their family members are still waiting for any kind of solution and is unacceptable again with less than twenty percent of the murders being solved in Chicago. How can they explain how they were able to use their resources to bring these two gentlemen, who who basically innocent people that were paid to do whatever I I wouldn't say innocent they were all part of this big scam. So is there another there's talk of a class action suit any any news on is that accurate is that just a rumor? Well, actually since I've been on the radio on TV. My phone's been flooded with people that have not spoke to detective says they let one has been murdered in the streets of Chicago five years six years twelve years and nine and so on a song, and I believe that that's a form of discrimination. You know, because as you have you seen with your own eyes. They saw Jesse case in two weeks. You seen anything happened up downtown that takes us up, but all the black the black community as you said, the the raise less than twenty percents. So yes, I see a form of discrimination. We doing our homework, and we're gonna see if we can file a class action lawsuit discrimination, Andre Smith, exude your pope. How you doing question? What did you think about this case when you first heard of it, did you believe Jesse smaller or not? No, I didn't believe him. I mean, but, you know, did you think that it was outrageous? Okay. So what was that? If you thought it was outrageous. You didn't believe him. Don't you think that this case was really easy to solve the evidence? Quick to be gathered that there really wasn't must resources needs to be thrown behind this. Because this is the easy case to saw it doesn't necessarily take take take from the more serious issues in the city of Chicago. Okay. I disagree with taking away because I need to occupy the same space. So when you take twenty four detectors in the city of Chicago, and you're told her the south side in the west side that we don't have enough detectors to sign these murders. Then they're taking away. Whether you want to say that's for burglary or whatever detective with a detective. All right. That's true. What is the footage? The data to show that. Who disposed to detect who assigned again? In that area to make sure that this case was followed along with any other particular case in the city, Chicago, you think you're a suit would accomplish something like that. Well, you know. Open up their show that the detective division is a racist division. Andre. This is Charles love. I have a question. So. I'm really solutions based on things. So you say you mentioned cameras and the resources both detect a number of detectives and all that. So do you think if we had more detectives and working cameras, would you do you think that that would have a major impact to the closure of murder cases? Or is it something else? I've been in the streets working all crying for twenty seven years right now today, you can shoot a gun in your basement. They got that sound that will let them know. Exactly. What you're whether you're in the basement, whether you an alley whether you're on the front of that himself in west side is it on the west side. Okay. All right. So on ask yourself so to solve this. What what do you say we need? Let's get to the bottom of that. We need transparency. We need the same thing. The same type of service in the white rich folks good we need on the south side in the west side and the black community. Okay. I know you're running for alderman. I'm not familiar. Where's the twentieth word? What are the boundaries the twentieth? Award is Washington Inglewood new city, backer yards and greater Grand Cross. It goes from Stony fifty sixty four up to sixty nine down fifty fill all wheel to forty seven awards. So you Inglewood was included as one of the neighborhoods. We hear lot Lonsdale Inglewood and Roseling other big ones and Austin where we have all these crimes. So you aren't speaking from a person, that's that's dealing with these issues. I'm sure out on the campaign trail, that's one of the things that people are talking about they wanna feel they want what everybody in America wants. They wanna feel safe in their homes. They grew up there and the history and may not necessarily want to flee. And so they're looking for if somebody gets caught. Something bad or someone is to be able to catch them in the first place. Not only the murderers, but everything that's going on between gun crimes and people. Just standing on the corner making it hard for them just to go to and from school. So I know that's a big issue. I'm not sure of the of the details of what's happening in your race. As far as the incumbent and what's happening and why you decided to jump in. But I'm certainly I was taking by the fact that you were so honest about what's happening, and this unfortunate that that is to tell the truth cities all over again, we see that in how people are living the quality of schools. And now we see and how quickly they can solve a crime and with very little information. And even the person giving them intentionally wrong information, they were still able to bring those two guys to Justice so to speak so lead, everybody's your website and good luck to you on Tuesday.

That means oh, they're not putting holes in your walls to install it, massive installation fees. You don't have long term contracts to sign at like fifty bucks a month. And it is the latest greatest best technology bar, none. They have transformed the entire home security business. Now, you gotta understand some interesting statistics because you know, what security systems deter burglars. In fact, there's still a burglary every eight seconds in America. Well, think about it. You think Burgos, give up does become some houses have security systems. They don't they.

"So jussie smollet has been arrested and he has been charged. And remember, you know, you have to think about this. There was a moment. When Jesse small it was thinking something to himself like should. I enjoy my talent succession thank God for all my blessings or should. I hope the police and pretend to be victim and risk disgrace and prison. Well, you know, I I won't tell it now, but aren't at joke. I talk about the guy wished for an orange Ed jussie small at there. He is. So he wanted to get beat up in Chicago. Well, the superintendent of police Eddie Johnson gave him exactly what he wanted smacked him around. But good this is the first cut where he talks about with Jesse small. It was cut eleven. This announcement today recognizes that empire actor jussie smollet took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career. I'm left hanging. My head and asking why? Why would anyone especially an African American man? Use the symbolism of noose to make false accusations. Out could someone look at the hatred and suffering associated with that symbol and CNN opportunity to manipulate that symbol to further his own public profile. Can an individual who's been embraced by the city of Chicago. Turnaround slap everyone in this city in the face by making these false claims. See the thing is if you wanna get smacked in Chicago, you wanna get smacked by a couple of brothers. You hired yourself. Not by the police because that's not a good situation. He's been charged with a felony count of disorderly conduct. But after here's the interesting thing after Johnson superintendent Johnson finished smacking Jesse around. He went after the media. And this is what he said listen to this we discovered the actual motives, quite frankly, it pissed everybody off, you know, because we have to invest valuable resources a lot of what I want. You ought to really understand is when you all put things out there. Into the universe. That's not actual facts than it causes us to have to chase. All that stuff down those are resources and time spit that we'll never get back that we could utilize for another investigation. I don't I mean, no disrespect to the superintendent. When I say explaining what a fact is to the news media is a very very difficult thing to do. They're going Afaq. Could you spell that force? You know when I was a reporter. I went said to a cop, you know, you, and I we work we we both worked for the people. And he said, no you work for a corporation. I work for the people. That's right. The police of the ones looking for fact, the news organizations work for corporations on our selling a point of view that the corporations want you to believe if you don't believe this. Let me show you an amazing amazing cut. I'm going to play this first and then comment on it afterward of the diff- of Don lemon. Now, I understand picking on Don, lemon is is, you know, picking on a guy who can think very well. But still Don lemon is reacting to this thing that he was trying to sell as, you know, a symbolic of what America's like during the tyranny of the Trump administration. And now it's been caught out and he's talking to their. To Joey Jackson their legal analyst are this is cutting eight not come to number seven number eight..

"I mean, this is comical I mean, I'm watching this lady bring this up. There. I mean, everything that you would need to either like Robert do something to somebody. They're buying right there. Right. It's like if you're standing behind in the supermarket aisle and somebody in front of you has prophylactics a bottle of wine. You know what I'm saying? It's like that. But if you were going to rob somebody they have all these stock cats, including a sack cat that has the cutouts for the eyes and the mouth, and then they have to red hat's right there on the counter. The rope is right there. This is crazy, and they're just standing there talking to looking at their phones and just you know, hanging out Chilin. I mean, clearly, they're not, you know, there's there's they're not nervous about anything at all. And to make it even crazier he paid them with a check. He gave them a check. Check he paid them with a check. Like he signed his name on it three thousand five hundred dollars. He paid them with a check. That's according to Chicago police superintendent, Eddie Johnson. So he turned himself in today. He's going to appear in court later today. Yeah. I mean, I and that's gonna come up here. Just a little bit. They have the phone records where it says it showed that he spoke with him an hour before and an hour after the attack. And he apparently spoke with them while they were in Nigeria for the two weeks after the attack. And so that's when they were they were arrested when they when they came back to the United States. And then I guess that's when he realized what does he was he really going to testify against them in court knowing that he hired him. Oh my gosh. So that's I just a man. And apparently so his motive according to local media in Chicago who've been who've by the way, they've done such a great job with this because they treated it like a local crime story that has national appeal and they've really done their due diligence. But the report is that he was quote dissatisfied with his salary on empire. You look you just turned into a question, Mark cane? Yeah. He was dissatisfied with his salary. Yeah. My first question would be what in the world with this staged event done to improve his salary. Somebody needs to drop the breadcrumbs and lead me along that path. Just look at capper, Nick. Kaepernick got a damn Nike deal. Bye bye plainy victim. True. He played a victim didn't stage anything. Now, this my thing is he thought that staging this would somehow lead to the increase in salary for me. I'm just full of questions. I'm not sure how it's possible. Yeah. He. He was he wanted more salary apparently. And so that's why he did it. So he's charged for violent at. So I mean, this is a felony. He's charged with a felony. It's called felony. What did they say disorderly conduct? But you have to understand that in that that charge also considered part of that charges. Filing a false report. And it can either be a class for a class three felony. And his case, I think is a class four felony. So he's looking at jail time and massive fines, but he's looking at jail time. And I think that the maximum penalties should be levied here. Because see this guy is acting like he's attacked. Meanwhile, earlier today, I watched a video of a conservative student getting his ass be UC Berkeley and had his nose busted broken. You can hear the crunch of the bone in his nose on video by a progressive. And then yesterday, I saw another video of a girl who ran down this elderly man that had a maga- hat on a Sam's Club and tried to knock the hat off his head. And then yesterday evening there was another video of somebody being assaulted because they were wearing a red hat. Meanwhile, that stuff is not getting discussed, but this guy stages a fake hate crime. And then you have people like Cory Booker who tweets this kind of ridiculousness out. He tweeted and this and it's still up. He tweeted this on January twenty ninth, quote, the vicious attack on actor jussie smollet was an an attempted modern day lynching..
