Armstrong Williams: Chicago Can be Cleaned Up

By    |   Friday, 14 Nov 2014 04:48 PM

The alarming crime rate in parts of Chicago is fixable, but a corrupt power structure that determines how the law is enforced, depending on the neighborhood, prevents it from happening, says Armstrong Williams, host of "The Right Side" on Newsmax TV.

"The president, it's his backyard, has made a decision that it's more important to maintain the favor of the power structure in Chicago instead of doing what is in the best interests of the people that he supposedly loves the most, everyday people," Williams said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" with guest host Dennis Michael Lynch.

"There is too much corruption in the city of Chicago and where corruption is rampant, it eventually spreads … What they need to do is get rid of the corrupt police officers, make those [poorer] communities just as valuable as any other communities."

"What they are telling these people you can kill each other and it's OK, but don't cross over in certain neighborhoods that commit the same crimes. They put the different value on life and a different value on neighborhoods."

Williams said the cleanup must begin by ridding rundown neighborhoods of the criminals who rule them.

"They need to get the bad characters out of their neighborhoods. These guys control and reign in a lawless manner. They exact fear on people. They destroy their way of life, they destroy their communities, they destroy their families," Williams said.

"If the police force were to work with those communities to get rid of those bad apples instead of sometimes being in cahoots with those bad apples, then people can begin to build those communities, build those families, and build those infrastructures back again."

According to the FBI, there were some 500 murders in Chicago in 2012. In 2013, there were 414 murders.
