State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago) talked to a radio station in Detroit about the perceptions that she says some people in her district have about the murders of black youth in Chicago.

Davis says when she spoke on a Detroit radio station about Chicago's high percentage of unsolved murders, she was only repeating what some people in her district believe about some of the killings.

"Some people in my community believe the police may be involved in some of these murders," said Rep. Davis.

"I think it's absurd, I think it's inflammatory. I think it's also insulting," said Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy.

I'm glad I'm the first to comment only to say this isn't worthy of a comment.

Jim, Yep

Bob@Az. @ 7/30/2013 8:12 PM

Jim & gp cobb, make that three. But she is a democrat so who else they gonna blame?

She's right there with Sheila Jackson Lee.

Who were the idiots that voted her in?

Greg @ 7/31/2013 6:20 AM

Detroit is full of these.....hmmm, I know what she is and represents but decorum prevents me from stating the obvious.

Pretty impressive Chicago politician and sure isn't trying to help racial relations...Next ambassador to Italy?

George @ 7/31/2013 7:17 AM

Very stupid comment true, but stupid politicians come in all shapes, colors and parties Greg, or have you forgotten :)

This only goes to prove that all politcians when hired should have to pass a physiological test. This I feel is fair to us taxpayers.

Angie @ 7/31/2013 10:28 AM

And people wonder why there is racial tension when ignorant people like this have a forum and open their big mouths!!

Lenny @ 8/1/2013 5:29 PM

For those who always feel the need to post racist, sexist, and idiotic political (yes I'm talking to you Bob@AZ) comments, shame. But on a more humorous note when I first looked at her picture I thought it was Dennis Rodman.

Good for her stating the concerns of her constituency.

For those commenting on how stupid this lady is.. I would argue that you don't realize this is the same tactic we use in iraq afghanistan libya and now syria to make it seem like the genocide taking place is organic just to these people in the midst of the violence... You need to study history and follow the money... its called Chi-Raq for a reason.. think before you judge...

Ok so i read all the comments....... In a world where the gov and police want to control every aspect of our lives..... Even our thinking..... How and why would you neglect the fact that police brutality is almost as bad as it was when slavery existed.... History will always repeat itself...... Tho it might not be a step by process what she saying could very well be true.... The only people that seem "IGNORANT" to that fact are in the above comments#Check
