How bad has it gotten in the gun control mecca of Chicago? Pretty bad…murders are so rampant that Chicago has basically said they’re no longer going to respond to non-serious calls. What does non-serious entail? vehicle theft, garage burglary or simple assault (guess it has to be complicated to get a police response). You will now be transferred to the Alternative Response Section.
This will hopefully free up more police officers to take down police reports of murdered victims.
Honestly, if done for non-threat situations, this could be a smart move. But it still shows the sad state of Chicago that it needs to be done. And “simple assault” should be worthy of a 911 call. As many murders are the results of simple assaults.
