Chicago official suggests people blow whistles,
run towards armed thugs to “scare off” criminals
Who knew you could scare off people who want to blow your head off by blowing a whistle? This is a game-changer for crime fighting! How do clowns like this get elected?
In Chicago, an alderman (or “alderperson) is suggesting her constituents wear whistles, which they would then blow while running toward thugs armed with firearms if they witness a crime taking place. No, this is not an article from the Babylon Bee.
Breitbart reports that according to CWBChicago, alderman Michele Smith from the city’s Ward 43 is actually suggesting the city return to a 1970s era “WhistleStop Program,” which was apparently a thing in Chicago’s Lincoln Park back then.
Smith sent an email out about the program as follows:
“The WhistleStop program follows these rules…If you find yourself in a suspicious situation or witness a crime, blow your whistle. If you hear a whistle, call the police, then move toward the source while blowing your own whistle.” [emphasis added]
Yes, she is actually encouraging her constituents to move toward someone committing a crime. She makes the absurd observation that if you blow a whistle while running at a criminal, it “forces the offender to flee and helps police pinpoint the location of the crime.”
