VIDEO: Cook County Deputies Help Fight City Gun Violence

The Cook County Sheriff's Department is taking extreme measures to suppress gun violence in Chicago with a new Illinois law enforcement strategy that redeploys deputies from the suburbs to the city.

Those deputies are going after people with arrest warrants, often for violent crimes.

"Sometimes it's hard to get a good address. And when we get one we work it pretty hard," Cook County Sheriff's Sgt. Emiliano Valenica told NBC Chicago.

Pass CCW laws like FL or TX and let citizens defend themselves. Then import Project Exhile to work with the US Attorney to put away gun offenders. The violent crime rate will drop drastically and immediately.

One thing that's hypocritical about the Michael Brown supporters is they are the same who tell you to "Wait for the Police" during the Trayvon Zimmerman affair. But when an LEO comes upon someone in the Middle of the Road acting strange. Oh that's just plain evil! Well the Convince Store owner in Ferguson Mo didn't have to wait! What's so bad with a Thug loosing a life, when a Thug wouldn't mind killing or hurting others? The only way to win in Chitown is "Good Corruption" like in the movie Casablanca. Get a Mayor who uses "Double Speak" to this Puppet masters. And tells him he hates Useless Eater Citizens. But empowers Liberty minded people and Gun Owners behind the backs of the Ruling Elite.

What a farce. Using the lottery system to look like you're doing something isn't the correct method. Zero tolerance for their activities, select enforcement, pat & frisk, etc. is what works. But with this POTUS & AG With-Holder @ Dept. of No-Justice it will not change. And frankly I don't think the latter mentioned thugs want it to.
