[Ed. – Tougher gun control measures have failed miserably.]
On Monday, President Donald Trump called for the Chicago Police Department to end its “terrible deal” with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) preventing police from using “stop-and-frisk” measures to deter crime.
Addressing the International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Convention in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, Trump said he’s tasked the U.S. Attorney General’s office with persuading Chicago police to renew their “stop-and-frisk” policy.
Trump said crime-ridden cities, like Chicago, are “meant for” stop-and-frisk:
“I have directed the attorney general’s office to immediately go to the great city of Chicago to help straighten out the terrible shooting wave. I’m going to straighten it out and straighten it out fast. There’s no reason for what’s going on there.
“I’ve told them to work with local authorities to try to change the terrible deal the city of Chicago entered into with ACLU, which ties law enforcement’s hands – and to strongly consider ‘stop-and-frisk.’ It works, and it was meant for problems like Chicago. It was meant for it. Stop-and-frisk.”
