Cook County board votes to permanently dismantle gang database
 
By Rachel Hinton@rrhinton | email

The Cook County Board voted to destroy the county’s gang database Thursday, setting legal steps and guidelines to make sure the database can’t be restarted.

The vote was the death knell for the contentious database, also called the Regional Gang Intelligence Database. Last month, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office announced it had “terminated” the database, a decision that came after no other law enforcement agency agreed to host it.
 

The ordinance, which takes effect immediately, prohibits the Cook County Sheriff’s Office from maintaining, re-creating or sharing information on the database. It also mandates the sheriff’s office to “enact the final destruction” of the tool.

Well they should.  These gang bangers are, according to Nazi Pelosi, choirboys and nuns  in waiting. *****rollingeyes*****

You are talking about Crook County.
"Last but not least, I was a Republican, a Reagan Republican. Still am. Not a Tea Party Republican. Not a Breitbart Republican. Not a talk radio or Fox News Republican. Not an isolationist, protectionist, immigrant-bashing, scapegoating, get-nothing-useful-done Republican. Not, as I am often dismissed by self-declared "real" conservatives, a RINO, Republican in Name Only. I'm a Reagan Republican, a proponent of lower taxes, less government, free markets, free trade, defense readiness, and democratic internationalism."

There is a large spate of crime/killings in the inner city.  Certain groups say "we demand the police do something about the crime in our area. It's racist that they don't do something."
The police step up law enforcement and the crime rate ebbs for a bit.
The same people then say "the police are being racist by profiling our babies and killing them just because they point guns at the police or rob and assault innocent people. We demand they stop."
The police relax and the crime rate goes back up.
The same people then say "we demand the police do something about the crime in our area. It's racist that they don't do something."
Lather, rinse, repeat.
