       “Let’s cut to the chase — these kits are for gunshot victims,”

        Let's cut to the chase, gunshots from legally possessed firearms, or gunshots from illegally possessed firearms? If illegally possessed, which they assuredly are, why waste your time going after the gun rights of citizens who possess their guns legally?

Chicago to mount bleeding control kits throughout city to help adapt to new ‘environment’

Democrat-controlled Chicago has come up with at least a partial solution, albeit sad and weak, to the epidemic of deadly gun crime that turns almost every weekend into a municipal bloodbath.

Officials are installing 400-plus, wall-mounted bleeding control kits in nearly 300 public buildings in the Windy City as well as at medical clinics, senior facilities, and possibly subway stations and parks. The kits are evidently meant to be used as a stopgap measure before EMTs arrive to render treatment to victims.

“Each of the kits contain enough supplies to treat eight victims, with tourniquets, gauze, shears, gloves and an instruction manual,” NBC Chicago reported about the initiative.

According to Rich Guidice, Chicago’s emergency management and communications (OEMC) executive director, “The box has eight tourniquets and also gauze, so it’s basically to stop the bleeding.”

“We’re living in different times. And we’re doing our best to adapt to the environment that we’re living in,” he added, describing the additional supplies as “just another layer of security and protection.”

Chicago purchased the units, where cost $500 each, with a federal government grant.  The kits can also be used to remedy bleeding emergencies resulting from slip and falls and “penetrating injuries.”

“Let’s cut to the chase — these kits are for gunshot victims,” Outkick obseved.

“OEMC said the kits are being installed under a new program called ‘Safe Chicago’ in partnership with the Chicago Fire Department, Chicago Police Department and the city’s Assets and Information Services,” the news outlet explained.

As of Monday, September 27, about 600 firearms-related homicides and nearly 2,700 shootings reportedly have occurred in America’s third-most-populous city this year.

According to a website that tracks these grim statistics, so far this year, approximately 3,500 persons have been shot overall, which may include eight who reportedly died and 59 who were wounded last weekend.

The month of September allegedly saw 89 fatal shootings with a total of 488 persons shot.

If accurate, that same website claims that a person in Chicago becomes a victim of a gun crime nearly every two hours and is murdered every 10 hours.

Chicago appears on track to unfortunately far exceed the number of murders that occurred in 2020, according to Chicago PD data.

After refusing President Trump’s offer to help while he was in office, far-left Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who previously sought to downplay the ongoing violence, asked President Biden over the summer for federal resources to combat the pervasive lawlessness.

Lightfoot has blamed the crime wave on what she considers a common enemy: “the guns and the gangs.”

        "America’s record surge of violence came as Democrat-led cities and states across the country cut billions of dollars of funding from police budgets after the death of George Floyd in May 2020."

US had highest murder increase ‘in modern history’ amid police defunding, BLM riots last year

The U.S. experienced the highest murder rate increase “in modern history” last year amid widespread police defunding, Black Lives Matter riots, and crippling lockdown orders, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Data released Wednesday by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) indicated a 30% rise in homicides in 2020, the largest since at least 1905.

“It is the largest increase in 100 years,” Robert Anderson, chief of mortality statistics at NCHS, told CNN.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

America’s record surge of violence came as Democrat-led cities and states across the country cut billions of dollars of funding from police budgets after the death of George Floyd in May 2020.

Last summer, New York City approved a budget shifting $1 billion from the city police department before partially backtracking as murders soared 17 percent this year. Atlanta similarly slashed corrections funding by 60 percent, and Los Angeles moved to cut $100 million-$150 million from the Los Angeles Police Department, according to pro-police group Secure America Now.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Those numbers reflect recent data from the FBI, which reported 21,500 total homicides last year, up from around 16,600 in 2019.

“Since June 2020, local leaders and activists’ increasing attacks, demoralized, debilitated, and in some cases, defunded law enforcement,” the LELDF said. “As police stepped back, violence surged.”

Nationwide police defunding also memorably occurred alongside mass rioting linked to the Marxist, pro-LGBT Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.

The Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project, a nonprofit that tracks political violence, registered more than 500 riots associated with BLM between May and September 2020. The Black Lives Matter riots accounted for over 95 percent of violent “protests” in the United States last year and left an astounding 2,000 police officers injured.

Just the first few weeks of rioting dealt between $1 billion-$2 billion in damages, in what was the most destructive wave of political violence in decades, based on insurance claims data.

The BLM riots nevertheless won the backing of virtually the entire liberal media and top Democrats, including then-Senator Kamala Harris.

        This is a lesson in how to fight crime in big cities controlled by liberals.

To Combat Increase in Shootings Chicago Installs 'Bleeding Control Kits' in City Buildings

Don’t increase the number of police.  Don’t enforce the law instead of releasing violent criminals on the streets.  Don’t stop importing gang members from Central America.  Don’t vote in sane politicians.  Put in Bleeding Control Bags to stop the increase in violent crimes in Chicago.  

NBC News Chicago reported that the number of shootings increased in 2021 from 2020:

Chicago has seen a significant increase in shootings and homicides so far this year, compared with the first four months of 2020, police said Saturday.

Statistics included in a news release from the Chicago Police Department reveal that a troubling rise in gun violence this year shows little sign of slowing down. The city had five fewer homicides this April than last April, but the number of shooting victims increased to 299 from 225.

NBC Chicago reports that the city has an answer to the increase in shootings in the Windy City – bleed control kits:

The City of Chicago is installing hundreds of kits in city buildings to treat bleeding gunshot victims under a new program officials say could help save lives in an emergency.

Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications announced earlier this month that the city has begun installing 426 wall mounted “Bleeding Control Kits” in 269 buildings across the city.

'We are not immune': Walgreens closes five more San Francisco stores over rampant theft

Crime doesn't pay — for what it takes from Walgreens pharmacies.

Walgreens announced Tuesday it will close five stores in San Francisco next month, citing "organized retail crime" as an unworkable obstacle.

“Organized retail crime continues to be a challenge facing retailers across San Francisco, and we are not immune to that,” a Walgreens spokesperson told the Washington Examiner. “Retail theft across our San Francisco stores has continued to increase in the past few months to five times our chain average."

Walgreens previously increased its investment in store security measures across San Francisco to 46 times its chain average in order to combat the spike in shoplifting.

San Francisco Board of Supervisors member Ahsha Safai was vocally disappointed in the closures, saying Walgreens's struggles show why retailers need "an expansion of the '10A' program" to reduce retail theft.

Safai proposed the 10A legislation on Sept. 28, which would allow privately owned businesses or commercial business districts to hire sheriff's deputies as security guards. The deputies could only be hired when off-duty and would be paid by the businesses themselves, according to Fox 2.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Patients with prescriptions at the stores closing will automatically have their information transferred to a nearby Walgreens within a mile radius and can expect to receive additional information through the mail. Store team members are also expected to transfer to other nearby locations.

The bleeding control kits will simply be stolen by the gang bangers.

Makes sense.

       They need them to fix up all the people they hurt.

Legal Experts Say Kyle Rittenhouse Has Strong Self-Defense Claim

Legal experts are saying Kyle Rittenhouse, who fatally shot two rioters last summer, has a strong case for arguing self-defense, based on the law of self-defense and precedent.

Last August, when Rittenhouse was 17 years old, he was arrested for fatally shooting two men and injuring a third during a protest-turned-riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He was charged with two felony counts of homicide and one count of felony attempted homicide and is facing potential life in prison. 

Rittenhouse pleaded not guilty in January.

~~~~~~~~~~

It has been my experience in these politically-energized use-of-force cases that begin with a quick, politically-clamored for arrest on charges as serious as murder, that as further evidence is developed it is invariably evidence consistent with innocence rather than consistent with guilt. This was true of the George Zimmerman case, the Eric Garner case, the Freddie Gray case, the Mike Brown case, the Tamir Rice case, now the Jacob Blake case, and I expect the same will prove true of this Kyle Rittenhouse case, as well.

~~~~~~~~~~

The video shows Rittenhouse tending to hurt protesters during the night of the riot, before tensions escalate and the teen finds himself pursued by a mob and pinned between cars as gun shots ring out nearby.

~~~~~~~~~~~

The trial is set to begin Monday.

        "Rosenbaum, a convicted sex offender who had been released from a psychiatric facility earlier in the day, can be seen hiding among vehicles at a car dealership before beginning to chase Rittenhouse."

New Rittenhouse Shooting Footage Shows Kyle Chased, Shot at Before Firing at Joseph Rosenbaum

New footage of events that led to a shooting involving Kyle Rittenhouse reveals the Illinois youth was charged by several leftist demonstrators, with one man involved in arson activities firing a weapon at Rittenhouse just before Rittenhouse was attacked by Joseph Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse shot and killed Rosenbaum when he went for Rittenhouse’s rifle, later facing an attack from other Kenosha rioters and shooting two more people.

Jack Posobiec published the footage on Tuesday morning, before it was displayed in opening arguments during Rittenhouse’s trial. The footage, containing both aerial thermal imagery and video of the street in Kenosha where the first shooting occurs, shows Rittenhouse running through a crowd and asking if anyone needed medical assistance. Rosenbaum, a convicted sex offender who had been released from a psychiatric facility earlier in the day, can be seen hiding among vehicles at a car dealership before beginning to chase Rittenhouse. Another rioter since charged with arson, Joshua Ziminiski, fires a supposed “warning shot” at Rittenhouse’s general vicinity, with Rittenhouse turning around, facing a charging Rosenbaum, and shooting him when he tried to wrest control of Rittenhouse’s rifle.

The video footage may present some of the strongest evidence in favor of Rittenhouse’s argument of […]

       "For more than a year, prosecutors in the Kyle Rittenhouse case have possessed FBI spy video footage taken by a fixed wing plane flying above the Kenosha riots. Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense attorneys say they only learned of its existence recently. On Tuesday, the public finally got a look at it."

Tough Day for Prosecutors of Kyle Rittenhouse

The feckless Wisconsin prosecutors who are claiming that Kyle Rittenhouse murdered two men and wounded a third started the first day hearing from witnesses by figuratively shooting themselves in the foot. Testimony from the three witnesses–an FBI agent, Richie McGinniss and Ryan Balch–clearly helped defendant Rittenhouse, who insists he acted in self-defense. Richie McGinniss, a reporter for the Daily Caller, was the first on the stand today:

McGinniss, who was running behind Joseph Rosenbaum when Kyle Rittenhouse shot Rosenbaum, testified in court on Nov. 4, 2021, that Rosenbaum “lunged” for Rittenhouse’s gun and “threw his momentum toward the weapon,” bolstering the defendant’s self-defense argument and blowing a major hole in the state’s case.

“It was very clear to me that he (Rosenbaum) was reaching specifically for the weapon because that’s where his hands went,” McGinniss testified. He then stood up in the courtroom, putting both of his hands out, and demonstrated the lunge. He said Rosenbaum was in an “athletic position” as if he was “running as fast as he could.” The rifle was aimed lower than Rosenbaum’s hands, which were also going lower. Rittenhouse “dodged around it,” and then leveled the weapon and fired, he testified. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
