Warning: If You Live Anywhere Near Chicago, Brace Yourself For Massive Rioting

Ferguson Civil Unrest - Photo by Loavesofbread

A video is going to be released tomorrow that shows a white police officer shooting a 17-year-old African-American young man named Laquan McDonald 16 times. Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez says that this video is “graphic”, “violent” and “chilling”, and it is expected to provoke a very strong emotional reaction from Chicago’s very large African-American community. Over the past few years, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray have all become household names because of the way that they died, and now it looks like Laquan McDonald’s name will be added to that list. But the situation in Chicago is potentially even more volatile what we witnessed in either Ferguson or Baltimore. More than a million African-Americans live in the Chicago metropolitan area, and the crime rate in the city has already been skyrocketing. In fact, it is being projected that Chicago‚Äôs murder rate will increase by 20 percent in 2015. This is a city that is always living on the edge of chaos, and now the case of Laquan McDonald could be the spark that sets Chicago ablaze.

After everything that has happened over the past few years, the last thing that we need is another incident that will make racial tensions in this country even worse. Unfortunately, that appears to be exactly what we are going to get. Cook County Judge Franklin Valderrama has ordered the city of Chicago to release the video of the death of Laquan McDonald to the public by November 25th. The following comes from CNN

Laquan McDonald was walking down a Chicago street the night of October 20, 2014, carrying a four-inch knife and behaving erratically, authorities say.

A police officer told him to drop the knife. He didn’t listen, and the officer fired on him out of fear for his life, according to a police union spokesman.

McDonald, 17, died. He was shot 16 times.

Now, more than a year later, the public will be able to see what happened.

This video is reportedly extremely disturbing. For African-American activists that have already had their patience stretched to the maximum by similar cases over the past few years, this horrifying video could prove to be the final straw.

Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez specifically moved up the announcement of murder charges against the white police officer that shot McDonald to November 24th in a desperate attempt to defuse the reaction to the video that will be released on the 25th. This next excerpt comes from USA Today

Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez described the video, which shows Van Dyke unloading 16 shots on 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, as grim.

“It is graphic, it is violent, it is chilling,” Alvarez told reporters after Van Dyke appeared in court Tuesday.

Alvarez said she made her decision weeks ago to charge Van Dyke, but had delayed announcing while federal authorities completed their parallel investigation of the incident.But after a judge ordered the release of the dashcam video by Wednesday, Alvarez said it was necessary to move up her office’s timeline even as her federal counterparts continue to their investigation.

“I felt compelled in the interest of public safety to announce these state charges today, ” Alvarez said.

And needless to say, this is the kind of thing that could easily cause the city of Chicago to erupt in unprecedented violence.

In fact, Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass is already fearing the worst

John Kass, a columnist for the Chicago Tribune, said the videocould tear Chicago apart.”

Dean Angelo, the president of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, told CNN affiliate WBBM he is concerned protesters from outside the city may converge to “disrupt and cause problems.”

“This is my city. We all live here,” Angelo said. “I’m concerned about the safety of my officers. I’m concerned about the safety of the civilian population. … I think local people don’t want to see their neighborhoods damaged.”

And even the governor of Illinois seems quite alarmed that we could see riots. Here is more from USA Today

Gov. Bruce Rauner announced Tuesday that his office had been debriefed on the video and that he expected public reaction to “strong,” the Associated Press reports. The governor directed Illinois State Police to work with Chicago Police to make sure the public remains safe following the release of the video. The governor, however, declined to say whether he has deployed any additional state troopers or put the National Guard on standby.

Even at the best of times, Chicago seems to be dealing with turmoil. Poverty is a persistent and growing problem, the city is teetering on the brink of insolvency, and it has become a central hub for some of the largest criminal gangs in the entire nation.

According to a CBS News article that was published back in 2012, there are 100,000 members of criminal gangs living in the city of Chicago alone…

Sgt. Matt Little leads one of the teams in Chicago’s Gang Enforcement Unit. There are about 200 such officers in the city– versus 100,000 gang members.

“Almost all the violence we’re seeing now is from the gangs,” Little said. “When there’s a shooting we’ll respond to the shooting. We’ll figure out where we believe the most likely area for retaliation is and we’ll work that area trying to both prevent retaliation and possibly build a case on offenders.”

And thanks to unchecked illegal immigration, more gang members are pouring into Chicago every single day.

So if there were 100,000 three years ago, how many are there now?

Back in early April, I warned about the civil unrest that was coming to America, and I specifically named three cities that would be flashpoints: Baltimore, Chicago and Washington D.C.

I issued this warning before any of us had ever even heard the name “Freddie Gray”, but by the end of April the city of Baltimore resembled a war zone.

And now Chicago appears poised to descend into chaos.

If you live anywhere near Chicago, you need to prepare yourself and your family for what could happen next.

If this video is anywhere close to as bad as we are hearing, it could set off anger unlike anything we have seen up to this point, and that would not be good for any of us.

    • We know about it and we know who wants it and whom is provoking it too. Us “whites” and blacks need to not get into this war – we are all people. We need to not be baited. We are the same. Period.

      • IMHO there aren’t many decent people in Chicago, when the looting & riots start it will prove my point. Decent people would come out & put a stop to it, but I believe just like Ferguson & Baltimore the people will allow crime to be rampant.

        • dude like 50 poeple got shot on 4th of july weekend, why would a good person want to go into basically what’s known as ethnic warzone (not an exaggeration). it’s called chiraq for a reason.

  1. people of all races I understand what has happened and it is a tragedy that’s for sure but if you let the law take care of it and not get to the point others are getting hurt or worse we all are americans and we are already facing a lot of things that can make us all sorry that we ever lived this is something we feel your hurt and would also wish it had never happened but we cant go back and correct this wrong but we can correct the wrong that is possible coming if we stand together all of us not as blacks or whites or latinos Asian all of us that call ourselves Americans we may be able to stop this before it gets to the point of disaster this is our home we need to protect it and fighting among ourselves is not going to help our country at all it will make it even worse

  2. The BLM and OWS Paid Protestors will be out in force in Chicago. Soros is paying these criminals to do this. They and he want a race war so Barry can declare Martial Law. And the Blacks who get all caught up in this are ignorant that they are being used. I don’t want to harm any Americans, but I’m not going to be a victim. Homey don’t play like that.

  3. For this country to continue this war against its self is just what Obama wants us to do. Everyone is playing right into his hand. By the time this racial war is over we will be under Marshal Law. I fully understand communitys being up set but really when it comes down to it….. We are all one race….. We are a human race…. I don’t care if your black, white, green, or yellow we ALL BLEED RED. I don’t care who you are we bleed red. If your in a traffic accident and your bleeding to death when you get the blood you need to save your life is it red? Yes it is. Where did it come from? Who cares as long as its red, wet, and saves your life. This crap of Black Lives Matter needs to stop. ALL LIVES MATTER!!! African American lives matter…. White lives matter… Hispanic lives matter…. Asian lives matter…. We all matter. And if law enforcement is breaking the law then they need to be sent with accordingly. Law enforcement IS NOT ABOVE THE LAW. THAT BADGE DOES NOT GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TO DO WHATEVER THEY WANT. I think the state of CA has it right…. If cops are parking in no parking zones and are not on a emergency call… They get a ticket…. If they are speeding down the road and are not on an emergency call they get a ticket. And the state has numbers for the people to call them into. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW…. ABSOLUTELY NO ONE. We the people need to knock this crap off before we get put under Marshal Law. We are ONE race…. WE ARE THE HUMAN RACE. and the sooner people open their eyes and see this the better we will all be.

  4. Edwin has a good point don’t fall into obama’s trap and start a race war so he can put martial law into effect, when he does try to get it in place there’s still gonna be a lot of trouble because then we’ll have to clash with the military and we don’t want to be fighting our on kids in the street, he’s trying so hard to light this war so he can stay in power, a lot of people think he’s dumb but he’s very smart and knows what he’s doing by setting it up so we start a race war and he keeps control and if you think about it we all are human beings no matter our color. Let’s be smart don’t let him have what he wants.
