Houston joins Chicago and Baltimore Mayors…

| March 30, 2020


Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner (D)

I don’t suppose Mayor Turner will have much luck, like Chicago’s Mayor Lightfoot urging Chicagoans to “love each other with all our hearts” during the fight to slow the spread of COVID-19, and Baltomore’s Mayor Jack Young begging for a shooting truce after seven people were shot and wounded in his city.

If only there was a common thread here.

Houston Mayor Pleads with Criminals to ‘Chill’ Until Coronavirus Pandemic Over

By: JOSHUA CAPLAN

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner (D) on Sunday urged would-be criminals to remain in their homes and “chill” until the Chinese coronavirus epidemic subsides in the Texas city.

“The best way to help police officers is to not commit a crime,” Turner told reporters during a press conference on his city’s latest efforts to combat the deadly illness. “Until the coronavirus is resolved, criminals, take a break.”

“Stay home and don’t commit any crimes. Thay way, they will stay safe and out of jail and police offers will stay safe and go home to there families,” the mayor added. “Crooks, criminals, you chill.”

Presumably after the virus has run its course the criminals will be able to return to their normal activities.

    “The best way to help police officers is to not commit a crime…”

    Yeah, like all Houston’s criminals are just sitting around pondering the best ways to help police officers.

    If Sheila Jackson Lee had a brother…

    Might just as well ask the Trump haters to back off
    until we get control of the virus.

  4. David says:

    “Go home to there families”… sigh.

    • Mustang Major says:

      Might be asking for trouble with the “go home to there families” (double sigh)

      A friend is a 911 operator in a Democratic run urban city. She said that since the stay at home directives have come out, there has been a big spike in calls from family members reporting other family members.

      Seems some families don’t get along well in some situations.

    • Comm Center Rat says:

      Mayor Turner wants to give “piece” a chance.

  5. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    In times pass I’d be saying YGTBSM, but we can always count on politicians to be complete and total idiots. What’s next, a request for Criminals to turn their guns in?

  6. Dennis - not chevy says:

    It’s become a mantra for liberals, “I thought about it therefore I’ve I done something about it. Next problem please.”

  7. 5th/77th FA says:

    We have simply got to quit asking, “How stupid can a politician get?” They’re taking it as their challenge over there.

    I hope that you’re paying attention to your syntax.

    • Poetrooper says:

      KOB, never, never, never say syntax in the presence of a politician.

      They will inevitably hear sin tax…

      • AW1Ed says:

        Yeah, I went ‘there’ too.
        *grin*

        • 5th/77th FA says:

          I’m glad that all of you’re on your toes. I guess it was obvious what I did over there to their remarks. They’re just gonna get worse/worser/worsest/worserd. *leer*

      • ArmyATC says:

        You said “sin tax!” You must an old white right-wing Christian reactionary! That’s judgemental, and racis’, homophobic, sexist, and stuff!!

  8. The Other Whitey says:

    Asking nicely. If that doesn’t put a damper on the drive-bys, nothing will!

  9. Mason says:

    As a retired copper, I really wish someone had had the balls to say this decades ago. Houston will now be a shining beacon on the mountain as crime plummets.

    • UpNorth says:

      Right, cuz it’s worked so well in Bawl’more and Chiraq. If only more mayors had thought of this.

  10. Roh-Dog says:

    Just in case that doesn’t work out, this house is protected by; 2 Glock 23s, Mossberg 500 and an AR.
    And those are the loaded ones… that I remember.

    • OldManchu says:

      Are those fully automatic assault military grade weapons of war?

      • Roh-Dog says:

        Fully semiautomatic weapons of mass tyranny destructionarism.
        (I’d love a registrable mg but a pre-‘86 AR machine gun is $10k!?! And a home built will get you 10 years in the federal £ in the a noose prison. Hard pass)

    • Fyrfighter says:

      We live far enough out that most of the zombies would get shot long before they get to the homestead… if they didn’t we have a 400 yd clear field of fire… if only we hadn’t lost all our weapons in that unfortunate flood last spring…

  11. OldManchu says:

    Is he trying to tie for 1st place with Sheila Jackson Lee as the DUMBEST-ASSEST politician in Texas!?!
    I’m 150 miles down the highway from this jackass.

    • Roh-Dog says:

      Hank ‘Guam may flip over from too many US Service Members’ Johnson (D-GA) has got to be a solid 2nd place then.

      If I was in that man’s family I’d castrate myself, just in case.

  12. Anonymous says:

    Stop! Or we’ll say “Stop!” again!

  13. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    You know what else helps, shooting the bad guys dead. They don’t re-offend and they don’t become a drain on society either…that really helps a society.

    Some people need to be reminded that the locks on my doors are for their protection, not mine.

  14. Smig says:

    Would anyone care to bet there is an HPD squad car parked on the mayor’s block 24/7?

  15. Sparks says:

    Urge criminals to stay home. Okay. How about, you’re a known criminal homeboy and if we see you out and about, we’ll be shooting you because we know you aren’t going to the store for your moms.

  16. Frank says:

    “Crooks, criminals, you chill.”
    Has the good mayor invited the criminal classes to attempt the “room temperature challenge”?

    Or has he been enjoying Andy GILLUM’S company…
