President Obama weighed in last night on the Laquan McDonald execution (and it was a summary execution by the police, point blank, six seconds after that cop got out of his car) and posted to Facebook:
Like many Americans, I was deeply disturbed by the footage of the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. This Thanksgiving, I ask everybody to keep those who’ve suffered tragic loss in our thoughts and prayers, and to be thankful for the overwhelming majority of men and women in uniform who protect our communities with honor. And I’m personally grateful to the people of my hometown for keeping protests peaceful.
That's a good sentiment, but what we need is something like the Department of Justice coming in and breaking up the Chicago PD leadership, and putting the police under federal control. The fact that no Chicago PD officer has ever. Been. Charged. With. Murder. Until now astonishes me. No police department in the country has ended more black lives than Chicago. The entire department needs to be disbanded and reformed. It is by far the most corrupt police department in the country. They torture people there, you know.
Oh, and I'd like to see the President go to Chicago, go see his buddy Rahm Emanuel, and just deck him in public. I know that won't happen. I know Rahm is definitely part of the problem and I know the President has always been blind to Rahm's foolishness.
Maybe Michelle can deck him.
