Chicago murder rate cut ‘roughly in half’ since before Operation Legend: AG Barr

FOX: The federal government through Operation Legend has “reversed” Chicago’s surge in violence, making more than 500 arrests and charging 124 people with federal criminal charges since it started, officials announced.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr said during a Wednesday morning press conference in the Windy City that the federal program had helped decrease Chicago’s murder rate to the lowest it’s been “at any time” since April, cutting the rate “roughly in half since before the operation.”

  1. Hey Bill Barr, Chicago’s problems are Chicago’s to fix. What do you say, how about you and Durham start taking care of business in the biggest, most damaging act of treason in our country’s history. It sure appears the fix is in, and you two seem guilty of a coverup!

  2. How can they be “cut in half” when the 2019 total homicides were 519 and this year there’s been 542 with three months to go?

    Cankles? Barr already said Hilz and Barry were off limits.

  3. I think he means cutting the surge (potential surge) in half using 2019 surge rate (compared to 2018). I dunno.
    But then, arrests have gone up NOW. And we know they (DA+mayor) weren’t doing anything but catch and release since mayor turtle was elected.

  4. WDS – They can’t mess with 0bama until the lower criminals give them up.
    The only person publicly trolling and hinting at 0bama right now is John Brennan.
    John brennan and Comey hate each other, so I don’t know who would talk behind the scenes, first.

    Hillary’s another story. Nature has to take care of her, because the law isn’t going to.

  5. MJA, Hilz and Obama will never be messed with. Ever. Maybe when they face their maker but not on this planet. Speaking of potential, I may potentially win the lottery Saturday. My odds of winning are better than the odds the covert coup issue will ever be resolved.

  6. If Barr would indict swamp scum instead, there’d be no organize riots.

    He’s cutting off the toes but not the head of the monster.
