Former Chicago Superintendent of Police Garry McCarthy said on Sunday that the Black Lives Matter movement is responsible for the rise in deaths among black people in Chicago and has raised crime rates across the country.
McCarthy said that the movement is preventing police from doing their jobs in his city and across the United States and is responsible for the rise in ‘noncompliance’.
‘What is happening is – and this is ironic – that a movement with the goal of saving black lives is at this point is getting black lives taken because 80 percent of our murder victims here in Chicago are male blacks,’ McCarthy said while speaking to New York radio talk show host John Catsimatidis.
McCarthy’s comments come after it was announced that Chicago had one of its most violent years, with the city seeing 762 homicides, the most in two decades in the city and more than New York and Los Angeles combined.
