Constitutional amendment on victims’ rights passes Ill. Senate - But you still can't carry a gun to NOT make you a victim


SPRINGFIELD — A push to change the state Constitution and give victims of violent crimes and their families new legal standing overwhelmingly passed the Illinois Senate Wednesday and could wind up going before voters this fall.

The measure known as Marsy’s Law, named after a California murder victim, advanced out of the Senate by a 55-1 vote and now moves to the House, which approved an earlier version of the proposed constitutional amendment.

Under the plan, victims of violent crimes and the families of murder victims or minors would be guaranteed the right to be informed about court proceedings, to make victim-impact statements during sentencing, to get “timely” notification when prosecutors are seeking a plea deal and to have their safety considered at bail hearings, among other things.

The state Constitution now contains victim-rights language, but there is no mechanism by which victims or their families can enforce those rights before, during or after trials by seeking relief from the courts.

“What this constitutional amendment does is ensure that those who have been victims of molestation, of rape, whose family members have been murdered, will now be confident their rights can, in fact, be enforced, that their right to have a voice and to be informed of what’s happening in trial proceedings are enforceable,” said Sen. Heather Steans (D-Chicago), the legislation’s chief Senate sponsor.

Chicago, IL—The murder rate has soared in Chicago as African-Americans rage on each other and White people. In nearly every incident the offenders are Black. There are a few Hispanics killing but White people are rarely a part of the Windy City’s violence other than as victims. This is a deadly public health issue every bit as bad as the plague.

Leftist government officials once again tinkered with failed social experiments by dismantling the vertical ghettos like the Cabrini Green and Robert Taylor housing projects. They sent these inhabitants out to the suburbs by the thousands and to all White neighborhoods like Chicago’s Northwest side. Crimes especially murder are exploding everywhere these African-Americans have been placed.

The reason for the increase in violence is a simply a flawed culture not some genetic trait. However, it’s the tolerance for the unique African-American culture of ignorance, hate and violence that fuels the crime. It destroys lives of both the perpetrators and the victims.

Blacks are encouraged not to fit into an integrated society by maintaining a warped value system. It begins with fostering ignorance with their pathetic language, Ebonics. Every third word they use is profane and insulting such as their favorite term, mother fucker. Theft is a way of life along with massive indiscriminate breeding. Traditional American values and standards of conduct are not part of Chicago’s African-American society. Blacks are enabled, encouraged and invited not to conform to the ways of a peaceful productive society.

The news media has done everything possible to cover up the fallout from the Black community. However in recent years there has been an explosion of cheap quality video cameras and every night Black faces of violence are broadcast into Chicago’s homes during the dinner hour.

They’ve tried to blame guns for the culture of murder but the White inhabitants own significantly more firearms and are not turned into killing machines because they own guns. It’s the bankrupt culture, and the tolerance of it that’s the real problem.

Young Black men treat being arrested and pushed through the criminal justice system like White people treat diplomas and scholastic honors. Being sent to jail is somehow considered a bold accomplishment. Rather than being a social stigma a felony conviction is a right of manhood in the African-America big city culture.

Culture tolerance is the new genocide and it’s practiced to the absolute detriment of Chicago’s Blacks and their miserable way of life.

The culture must be shunned, blacklisted and punished or it will continue degenerate in ugliness and misery. Responsible government officials need to de-glamorize bad behavior and begin to do something unheard of in Chicago’s schools. Simply be teaching children that by some conformance, simple manners and embracing education they can gain wealth and actually live the American dream.

Until we attack the rabid, violent and destructive Black culture we will never succeed in bringing kindness, productivity or enjoyment to African-Americans. Frankly they don’t deserve the flawed social programing the political Left has created for them. That programing has been racist and inherently evil.

Beware the beast nigger, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death.

Senator Heather Stearns voted for Obama, then told him that it was good now that victims had a voice. Obama asked her to be quiet.

You can carry a gun,its your Constitutional Right under the Bill of Rights.
Illinois and its agents illegally enforce its own law and ignore the 2nd Amendment.
The Govt of Illinois committs civil rights violations at several levels.

I thought the state constitution can't be changed unless the people vote for a constitutional covention? This is an end around to screw with our pensions.
