Yes, Chicago, you should deal with VIOLENT criminals differently

What is wrong with our world? Well, many things, like the death of common sense, for example. And yes, common sense dictates that those who commit violent crimes deserve should not be treated with kids gloves. Wheelgun explains

By not treating criminals appropriately, they get more crime. More carjackings reported as police promise crackdown: “The criminal justice system has to get serious about how they deal with some of these juveniles.”.

“The criminal justice system has to get serious about how they deal with some of these juveniles,” CPD Dep. Supt. Anthony Riccio said on Friday. “A lot of what we see are the same crews doing it over and over again. So, we’re gonna have to definitely address the problem of juveniles and the crime that they’re committing.”

Riccio made the remarks as he announced the reconstitution of a multi-agency carjacking task force. He said 117 vehicular hijackings had been reported in 2020 as of earlier this week, up from 67 during the same time in 2019.

Yes, the issue, it seems is the “well they are just kids” logic. They may be “just kids” but, if they are committing violent crimes, they need to be dealt with accordingly.
