Chicago has had some serious problems in the past.  It’s even been so bad that some politicians have recommended that the National Guard be brought in to help quell gun violence. But now, Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin suggested that the UN send in peacekeepers in the face of what he terms “quiet genocide.”  

Boykin met with Oscar Fernandez-Taranco of Argentina.  Fernandez-Taranco is the UN Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Support.  Boykin was seeking international help with “horrific levels of shootings” and other violent crimes in the West Side and South Side communities. 

“‘I’m hoping to appeal to the U.N. to actually come to Chicago and meet with victims of violence, and maybe even possibly help out in terms of peacekeeping efforts, because I think it’s so critical for us to make sure that these neighborhoods are safe,’ Boykin said at O’Hare International Airport on Thursday.”

Chicago and Cook County leaders have failed to protect many communities from violent crime. 

“‘There is a quiet genocide taking place in too many of our communities. Eighty percent of those who are being killed by gun violence are African-American, and often killed at the hands of another African-American,’ he said. ‘So we must protect these population groups, and that’s what the United Nations does. They’re a peacekeeping force. They know all about keeping the peace, and so we’re hopeful that they’ll hear our appeal.'”

Boykin believes that Chicago must “utilize every avenue” to protect its people from gun violence.

“‘They’ve been able to help in places like Africa and abroad, where they’ve sent troops in and sent forces in to help protect minority and vulnerable populations, and so quite frankly I think the same can be said for here in Chicago,’ Boykin said. ‘I’m talking about physical security. I’m also talking about maybe suggestions for what we can do in Chicago to help protect our minority populations. We’re being, again, decimated by the violence that we see here in Chicago. I mean this is really a genocide, and we have to do something to stop it.'”

Homicides and shootings were down through the end of November.  Chicago has had at least 620 homicides.  Although numbers have been down from last year, Boykin is still not satisfied with the high numbers of homicides.  

“‘I know that the mayor may tout the fact that the number of people being shot is down, and the number of people being killed is down, but let me tell you, we’ve had over 600 people killed by gun violence already this year alone. That is a huge number,’ Boykin said.

“In my community of Austin, we’ve had 450 people shot, and 80 people killed this year alone, and so we have to do more to protect these communities, and that’s what we’re going to do. If we can’t get it done here with the leaders of the city, the state, and the county working together to utilize their budgets to help protect these communities, then I have to appeal to a higher authority, and a higher force,’ Boykin said.”

For more than a month, the UN has been planning this meeting.  

“‘Quite frankly, we can’t wait until the mayor comes up with another 1,000 police to try to make the streets safer. Quite frankly, the people want to be safe right now in their homes and their neighborhoods, and we want to make sure that they’re safe,’ Boykin said.”

    Chicago already has enough rape and violence so they sure don’t need to bring in the UN.

  • mbnick

    Further proof that Democrats must be removed from public office at every level plus from our Courts, our schools, our borders…and our wallets. This moron obviously flunked civics. He should also speak to his Mayor who refused Trump’s offer of help. And you don’t see any kneelers concerned about these killings.

      You forgot our bathrooms and bakeries….only kidding….love your theme….

  • cagney

    Have you noticed you never hear about bad cops shooting the good thugs in Chicago? Do you think that might be the problem?

  • GrizzMann

    Republicans are to blame for the condition of Chicago. Their inability to put forth any candidate for leadership of Chicago and their inability to purge the voter list of active voting dead.

  • lenati

    So my question is to the liberal democrats is this Trump’s fault ? doesn’t Chicago have a no guns law? Seems to be big problem in Chicago. UN is not going to help.

    • 46patrick46

      Illinois was the last State in the Union to pass a carry conceal law. Chicagoans can now carry , if certified.

      Psst … quick … someone tell Trump. He thinks Chicago is still living in the 90s.

      MAGA … carry concealed …

  • AF Sam

    He is about as DUMB as they come! I could probably guess that that are many extremely LIBERAL judges there in Cook County whom have handed out seriously light sentences to many of the killers and victims. I also suspect that all those LIBERALS in charge are really tying the hands of the police forces, and who knows how many of them stand to gain financially by allowing the high crimes to continue?

    • That implies the dumpster fire that is Chicago has enough policemen to actually arrest that many people.

  • kinijane

    That is so wrong on every front. If they move in they will never leave.

  • Thomas

    Need to get rid of politician’s , mayor and all and declare Marshall law there by federal government. UN is the most corrupt organization in the world.

  • BEACH2916

    Could the Chicago politicians yell any louder that “They’re losers” These idiots couldn’t manage a fart without making a mess and you can smell it everyday.

  • Doc Savage

    Ignorance knows no bounds….Genocide must involve the intent to ELIMINATE a race, ethnic group, religion, etc. Black people killing black people , may be murder, manslaughter, etc. but it is not Genocide.The Democrat controlled City of Chicago apparently vacated its responsibility to enforce the Law. Hence there is now a lawless Society…that the citizens of Chicago have created themselves by voting Democrat over and over and over ad nauseum. So Boinkhead!! consults with a guy that comes from a country that has a 30%+/- murder rate higher than the USA, that represents the UN that has helped control the murder rate in Africa to where it is only about 250% higher than the USA AND then requests an unlawful occupation of the USA by a foreign entity…and this guy is representing American Citizens. Illinois you deserve what you have gotten because you voted for it!!! Accept it OR change it , grow up admit you made mistakes and take back your lives…but quit whining you pathetic losers.

    • 46patrick46

      Chicago , like many large urban areas , is a city of Black, Brown, and Yellow people. Only 32% of the city is White.

      More and more of the White Tax Base is moving out everyday. Why ?
      Tax Rate , too high !
      Violent Crime Rate , too high !
      Winter , too cold !

  • jdbixii

    Be careful what you ask for! There is a big difference between “government of, by and for the people” and “government of, by and for the army.” The military exists to impose the rule of law, by force, to eliminate any opposition to the rule of law, by force, if necessary. While U.S. troops might have some empathy for other U.S. citizens, what reason do we have, given the history of the World over the past 120 years, to expect that foreign troops, on American soil, would be predisposed to ask questions, and not shoot, first? Chicago’s version of “government of, by and for the people” is, apparently, somewhat akin to the “wild west” of the 1800s. While regrettable and crude, it is a matter of freedom of choice.

    If blacks can’t raise their kids to be respectable and moral, what do you expect. As it is, the definition of confusion in Chicago, is father’s day. They always use the “respect card” when it comes to how you treat them, but look at how they treat whites AND each other.

    • 46patrick46

      I love it on Father’s Day when Black children approach the Black male “visiting” their mama and inquire if he is their daddy. The Black male suddenly decides it’s time to “take a knee.”

      Thanks kapernick , for all you do for the Black community and the standards you have set for the Black child… hatred of the Flag, hatred of the USA , and hatred of Whites for transporting them to the land of milk and honey.

      • 2BFree2B

        I always heard the definition of confusion = father’s day in the ghetto or brown town.

  • Steve Queipo

    The UN is just a legalized group of THUGS. It’s hard to feel bad when help has been offered and the POS leadership of that fine city refuses to take it. With luck they will be caught in the crossfire of those misguided youth gang bangers . I really could care less if the thugs kill each other off one by one, they are nothing but scum and really should be eliminated by any means available. Sad part is so many innocent good people killed in the Chicago war. The blood is on the hands of the Kenyan terrorist and FISHFACE and all the liberal slime leaders that are like the UN,legalized thugs.

  • Chuck

    It’s not genocide if you’re doing it to yourself.

  • Excellent. Instead of UN goons, he should be calling for National Guardsmen. I am glad he realizes the problem.

  • Mac

    How do you die by gun violence? I have a few weapons in my closet and they never complain about being loaded, let alone wanted to be violent. Maybe Mr Boykin should call it what it is, Black on Black killings and his bigoted socialist ideology, along with ignorance, hasn’t worked.

  • Rob Hadlog

    “‘There is a quiet genocide taking place in too many of our communities.
    Eighty percent of those who are being killed by gun violence are
    African-American, and often killed at the hands of another
    African-American,’ This is impossible, doesn’t Chicago have the most strict gun laws — should not have any guns right !

    From a USCCA member !!!

  • FreeOregon

    Government is unable to provide basic services without force and threats of violence.

  • motherall

    No UN troops on our soil. No UN in the US. There is no genocide in Chicao- it’s black on black and white and if the thieves can’t control the thugs, that’s on them. We must not use Federal funds to clean up one city overrun with Democrats who have encouraged and enabled the status quo. I don’t pay taxes for that. If the IL governor wants to sent National “Guard troops that’s his choice but the time to put the boot down was about 30 years ago.

  • Buffalolips

    Do I need to be the first to point out (the obvious) just “who” is committing the genocide?

  • 46patrick46

    He did not mention that almost all of the violent crime is committed by Black Males. A group of criminals supported by “Black Lives Matter” who never mention that 70% of Blacks are born and raised in FATHERLESS homes which leads to undisciplined children who grow into a criminal Class.

    Furthermore , Black Lives Matter has caused the Mayor to implement policies forcing the Police to “step back”.
    Everyone knows that when the Police “step back” , the criminals “step up”. Wake up (democrat) mayor Rahm Emanuel !

  • At least the man recognizes the problem is Black violence perpetrated by a governing body of Amoral Liberal Democrats who want the rest of America to be governed by their Progressive policies. Even Lenin and Mao wouldn’t put up with Chicago’s BS.

  • Nikita63

    ILLINOIS IS INSANE!. AT LEAST THOSE IN CHICAGO BUT THEN WHAT CAN ONE EXPECT OF A CITY STUPID ENOUGH TO ALLOW RAHM EMMANUELLE AND COMPANY TO INVITE FOREIGN TROOPS ONTO U.S. SOIL? IF I WAS TO SEE A BLUE U.N. HELMETED SCUMBAG ON MY LAWN. HE WILL BE BURIED THERE AND I AM NOT IN CHICAGO BUT AM A DISABLED BY AGENT ORANGE, HONORABLY SERVING VIETNAM VETERAN WHO DID NOT SERVE FIFTY YEARS AGO TO WATCH A CORRUPT LEFTIST ORIENTED NEW WORLD ORDER OBSCENITY GIVE MY COUNTRY, FREEDOMS AND CHOICES AWAY TO THE ENEMY, WHETHER IT IS IN NYC OR SLITHERS IN FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE. WE ARE A SOVEREIGN NATION; WE WILL REMAIN SUCH, EVEN IF WE NEED A 2ND AMERICAN REVOLUTION TO SECURE ONCE AGAIN, WHAT IS OURS! AND RID OURSELVES OF A WASHINGTON CABAL OF CONGRESSIONAL CRETINS SERVING NOTHING AND NO ONE BUT THEIR PARTY AGENDAS AND SELF AGGRANDIZEMENT THAT WOULD ALLOW SUCH BS TO GO UNPUNISHED!

  • Waclaw Jerzy Borken-Hagen

    This crowns the Chicago septic tank governance. UN peace keepers don’t belong in the
    territorial United States. Cook County Commissioner should get a visit from the Feds.
    He is breaking the chain of command.

  • Indiana Mike

    Truth be told, ALL Liberal Cities in the US are very similar to 3rd World Shatholes. Chicago is like Zimbabwe but with more cars. Thanks Demonrats.

  • Raul Jimenez

    Third World democrat America…..Why so surprised!?…..African/La Raza America.

  • Mitch A

    A bait and switch? Politicians have engineered conditions which have led to extremely high levels of violence and now because of their political failures they want to bring foreign troops to America’s streets! Any politician pushing this traitorous scheme should be tried for treason and imprisoned!
