Chicago gangs conspiring to murder policemen
A disturbing report out of Chicago, where three prominent street gangs held a meeting last week, where a plot was hatched to ambush and assassinate police officers.
The Chicago Sun-Times, citing an alert issued to Chicago officers, reported Monday that the meeting took place on Thursday between the gangs Vice Lords, Black Disciples and Four Corner Hustlers.
According to the paper, the Four Corner Hustlers have “provided guns” and pinpointed a “sniper in place.” However, authorities are still unsure where the alleged sniper spot is placed. The gang is also funneling weapons to the other two gangs.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi declined to comment on the situation, saying “the department does not comment on any security measures.”
Dean Angelo, the president of Lodge 7 of the Fraternal Order of Police, said the O’Neal family attorney and statements from the Independent Police Review Authority were to blame for the threats.
“We had inflammatory and false rhetoric coming from (Michael Oppenheimer) and statements that weren’t true,” Angelo said. “You also have a lead investigator in police-involved deaths talking about how shocking and disturbing this is.”
The threats come after the officer-involved shooting death of the man. Police chased the teen into a South Shore neighborhood on July 28 after he allegedly stole a vehicle.
Note that despite their incendiary rhetoric directed at police, Deangelo does not blame Black Lives Matter for the targeting. BLM has routinely referred to police as "terrorists" and claimed that cops deliberately target black men for death. But publicly blaming BLM would only add fuel to the fire and put cops in more danger.
Police across the country are under seige by politicians and activists who are looking at their actions with a magnifying glass. In some places, this has resulted in police pulling back from high-crime areas, seeking to minimize confrontations. It also places an element of doubt in the minds of law enforcement officiers where hesitation could be fatal to them or other policemen.
Three powerful street gangs are plotting to murder law enforcement officers in Chicago. The stars are aligning for a terrible tragedy to occur unless the anti-police protesters dial back the rhetoric.
