Former NY Govenor slams Chicago police for violence problem

Former New York Governor George Pataki took a shot at Chicago’s police department today on a cable TV talk show.  He was defending the New York City police department’s now former “stop and frisk” policy on Morning Joe.

A federal judge ruled that policy unconstitutional.   Pataki said the policy protected minorities and people in low-income areas unlike the way police protect minorities in Chicago.

Chicago police superintendent Garry McCarthy responded at a news conference today saying the crime rate is down here and his officers respect the rights of suspects.

    all new guns sold should be fired and the barreling marks on the bullets be put in a big database. do the same thing for all registered guns.all guns should be rechecked every year. guns that are stolen or sold should be reported to police immediately The

    barreling marks on a bullet from a gun are like a fingerprint no two are alike.this would make it easier to tell which gun a bullet came from. guns found that have not been tested should be taken away.I don’t think people would be shooting the guns up in the air on the 4th of July anymore.
