This should work out. Cook county, the infamous county in Illinois, has decided to completely dismantle their database of known or suspected gang members. Officials voted on Thursday to hang it up. Listed were more than 25,000 known or suspected gang members.
With all the new gang bangers – MS 13 – headed our way with our open borders, I would say this is quite timely. 530 people were murdered in Chicago in 2018, with victims ranging in age from 1 to 93. With all the news coming out of Chicago these days, let’s first take a look at Cook County.
Cook County is a county in the U.S. state of Illinois. It is the second-most populous county in the United States after Los Angeles County, California. As of 2017, the population was 5,211,263. Its county seat is Chicago. the largest city in Illinois and the third-most populous city in the United States. More than 40% of all residents of Illinois live in Cook County.
According to the Chicago Sun Times.
The Cook County Board voted to destroy the county’s gang database Thursday, setting legal steps and guidelines to make sure the database can’t be restarted.
The vote was the death knell for the contentious database, also called the Regional Gang Intelligence Database. Last month, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office announced it had “terminated” the database, a decision that came after no other law enforcement agency agreed to host it.
The ordinance, which takes effect immediately, prohibits the Cook County Sheriff’s Office from maintaining, re-creating or sharing information on the database. It also mandates the sheriff’s office to “enact the final destruction” of the tool.
Keep in mind 51% of the Murders come from 2% of U.S. Counties
