Members of the Chicago Police Department we forced to release a suspected drug dealer upon being confronted by an angry, possible armed mob during a routine arrest.
“Chicago police on Tuesday said they were searching for a drug suspect who escaped arrest when a group of men threatened to harm the officer taking him into custody on the city’s West Side,” according to the Chicago Tribune.
There were two suspects involved. One who was being placed under arrest, and another who ran away with a bundle of suspected narcotics. One officer fled after the suspect who was running away from the scene. The lone officer was then reportedly surrounded by a mob that “implied that it had weapons.”
“Out of an abundance of caution, [the officer] backs away from the arrestee. An individual comes and grabs the arrestee and another individual comes and grabs the narcotics,” said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.
A shot was reportedly fired a “short distance away” from the arrest scene as an intimidation tactic.
The Chicago Police Department has recently been at the center of national attention in relation to the Jussie Smollett investigation. The “Empire” actor had been charged with several felonies in a suspected hate crime hoax before all the charges were mysteriously dropped early last week, enraging the police department.
The saga is a deep one, involving political players as far up the ladder as Michelle Obama.
As for the mob rule incident, police eventually arrested four suspects, none of whom were the original suspected drug dealer.
“Officers responding to the scene chased four men about a half block from the scene and took them into custody, but all were later released without charges. None of the men was the drug suspect, who is known to police, and was named in an investigative alert for his arrest,” according to the report.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
