Detroit Police Chief Says Will ‘Throw Her A Goodbye Party’ After Rep. Tlaib ‘Reckless’ Comments

In an interview with local news station WJBK Fox 2 in Detroit, Detroit police Chief James Craig had some serious words about Representative Rashida Tlaib’s “reckless and disgusting” comments. “When you look at reckless comments made by those who sit, and I won’ say sit in seats of leadership; I don’t use leadership loosely. But who sits in elected seats of influence, and you make reckless, disgusting comments that do nothing but inflame tensions; that’s not being responsible. That’s not leadership.”

As Chief Craig was making his comments, Fox 2 put one of Rashia Tlaib’s tweets on screen that read: “it wasn’t an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist. Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government-funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization, It can’t be reformed.”

The Fox 2 segment then aired a clip of Tlaib what appeared to be amongst protesters where she stated, “and to say that you can police away homelessness, to police away poverty, to police away all these ills in our country right now, that’s not the way to approach it; I’m done.”

Tlaib continued, “The structure in place for policing has left more, more of our Black neighbors and brown communities feeling so incredibly unsafe, and it’s unfair, there’s no accountability. Instead, they’re faced with ya know, just a number of militarization and criminalization.”

Chief Craig responded, “you know what? If I made comments on par with her they’d be calling for my resignation. The news anchor then asks Craig “should Rashida Tlaib resign?” Craig answered, “I would love if she would resign, I’d throw her a goodbye party. I’d have the party Charlie; I’ll throw her a party, let her go.”

Craig continued, “who is she speaking for, Charlie? Let me just say this; when you talk about abolishing police, incarceration, you talk about safe cities, what do you think the residents in Detroit want? I know, I speak with them.” Going back to Tlaib’s comments insinuating she does not speak to directly to the community as does Chief Craig, he added once again that her comments are “reckless, Charlie. So, is she truly representing the people or is she representing a fringe group?”

    She uses off duty police officers to protect her while she demeans officers! What a hypocrite! Where are these thugs parents? It’s their responsibility and should be charged with child neglect!

    Still remember her taking campaign money for her personal expenses not related to the campaign. No accountability..Omar and AOC did the same.

    These people are disgraceful! I hope something happens soon. We’ve had nothing but disruption and disgrace in our country since this administration began running for office last year. I can’t believe there are still people who support this crap. Just go on Twitter and that’s all you see. Very disturbing.

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.

It’s Raining Lawsuits on Jussie Smollett; City of Chicago and Nigerian Brothers Suing Actor

The City of Chicago has confirmed it will be suing disgraced actor Jussie Smollett. The lawsuit will seek the $130,106.15 “to cover an overtime tab racked up by dozens of officers tasked with investigating Smollett’s claims that he was the victim of an attack”, reports Daily Mail UK.

According to the legal filing, the Chicago Department came to the conclusion to pursue the lawsuit after over two dozen cops spent weeks investigating the fake attack and logged 1,836 hours of overtime as a result.

Daily Mail also noted the Osundairo brothers who were hired by Smollett to stage his attack, plan to continue with their own lawsuit against Smollett’s legal team. According to the Daily Mail, “they’re seeking undisclosed damages after claiming their careers and reputations were damaged in the high-profile hoax.”

After the initial set of charges were dropped against the brothers, Abel and Ola Osundairo, they sued Smollett’s attorneys in April 2019, claiming their careers and reputations were damaged. “They claimed in the defamation lawsuit against lawyers Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian that they were maliciously portrayed as liars in the public” reports Daily Mail.

The lawsuit specifically references how Smollett’s attorneys suggested the brothers ‘might have been wearing white face’ when they attacked him and inferred that Abel had a sexual relationship with Smollett. Abel’s home country of Nigeria prohibits homosexuality. ‘Same-sex sexual activity is illegal in Nigeria, which can result in 14 years of imprisonment…if the accused is married the punishment is death by stoning.’

Therefore, Ms. Glandian’s statements about the brother being a homosexual ‘endangers him and the lives of his Nigerian family’ the lawsuit stated. The brothers’ lawsuit was stayed by a federal judge until the criminal proceedings for Smollett are completed. The brothers’ legal team is expected to file an update to the court by February 2.

Smollett, 39, was just convicted on five counts of disorderly conduct for faking his own attack and now faces jail time. “His sentencing date has not yet been set but he faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.”
