Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani unloaded on Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel this week, saying his city’s outrageous murder rate and gang violence was a “direct result” of Democratic policies dating back decades.
Giuliani slammed Emanuel on social media just days after Chicago’s gang violence spiraled out of control; leaving twelve people dead and over 70 injured in just a 48-hour window.
“Chicago murders are direct result of one party Democratic rule for decades. Policing genius Jerry McCarthy can do for Chicago what I did for NYC. He was one of the architects of Compstat. Slashed homicides over 70%. Tens of thousands of lives saved,” tweeted Rudy.

Chicago’s deadly weekend prompted Emanuel and the city’s top police officers to hold emergency meetings, eventually urging “neighborhoods” to “step up” and help stem the deadly clashes between rival gang members.
RUDY ON FIRE: Giuliani Says He's Ready to ‘RIP APART’ Mueller Probe
Presidential lawyer and former Big Apple Mayor Rudy Giuliani urged the special counsel to end his probe “as soon as possible” Wednesday, saying his legal team was prepared to “rip apart” Mueller’s “unfair report.”
Giuliani was speaking with Fox News when he was asked about a potential “timeline” for an end to Mueller’s probe as it entered its second year, saying “they should do it today.”
“What is your optimal timeline for this to wrap up?” asked Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
“They should do it today. I mean as soon as possible. I think that they have the facts from which they can write their report,” fired-back Giuliani. “If you can write a fair report fine, then write it.”
“If you’re going to write an unfair report, write it and we will combat it. We’re ready to rip it apart,” he added. “And we’re ready to rip them apart if that’s what they want. We’d rather peacefully settle this and get it over with.”

“I’m hoping we have enough to…block traffic, to be a disruptive force” said one of the event’s organizers. “This is an act of civil disobedience.”
“You want to go where they chill out and relax,” he added.
