What’s the matter with Chicago? Looks like they need a Rudy Giuliani. Despite a spate of gun control laws, crime is spiraling out of control. The Democrat Illinois governor is now offering to send state troopers and National Guardsmen. (Hat tip – Tom Elia)

Gov. Rod Blagojevich on Wednesday raised the possibility of bringing in state troopers or even the Illinois National Guard to help Chicago combat a recent increase in violent crime — an offer that Mayor Richard Daley didn’t know was coming.

Appearing at signing ceremony for a bill that toughens the penalty for adults who provide guns to minors, Blagojevich said “violent crime in the city of Chicago is out of control.”

“I’m offering resources of the state to the city to work in a constructive way with Mayor Daley to do everything we can possibly do to help … stop this violence,” said the governor…

…The governor’s comments come at a time when violent crime has spiked in Chicago. This spring, for example, nine people were killed in 36 shootings during a weekend and Chicago Public Schools officials say more than two dozen students have been killed by gunfire since last September.

On Wednesday, Superintendent Jody Weis was grilled by members of a city council committee, who complained both about rising crime and statistics that suggested to them that the police department wasn’t doing enough to stop it.

Commenter Marshall Russ: “I guess they need some good community organizers for neighborhood watch programs. The best and greatest one is running for POTUS. Just ask him.”

Commenter Boomer is on the same wavelength: “Looks like a real quagmire[. M]aybe instead of sending in troops they should use the same policy they want to use in Iraq and just pull out. With all I have seen of Democrat and liberal leadership in my time on planet earth[,] I wouldn’t trust them to organize a latrine detail. I guess we see the results of a community that has been touched by the efforts of a community organizer. Just think what someone with this type of experience can do for the nation.”

Zing.
