Violent Hypocrite: Head of State-funded CeaseFire-IL, is a Wife-Beater! Arrested: Charged w/ Domestic Battery!

Beat as I do, Not as I say!

Head of CeaseFire Illinois charged with domestic battery

Tio Hardiman, director of the anti-violence group CeaseFire Illinois, was arrested Friday morning on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge at his home in west suburban Hillside.

The arrest clouds the future of Hardiman's leadership at the organization, where he pioneered the role of "violence interrupters," ex-convicts who mediate gang conflicts and prevent gun violence in some of Chicago's most crime-plagued neighborhoods.

Hardiman's arrest also complicates an already shaky existence for CeaseFire. While the group primarily operates through state funding, the city will decide this summer whether it wants to renew a contract with the group to help Chicago police tamp down violent crime in two communities.

It Should Have Been a DGU: Violent Anti-Violence Advocate Edition

Tio Hardiman is executive director of CeaseFire Illinois. According to the anti-gun group’s web site Hardiman “has dedicated his life and career to community organizing for peace and social change. In 1999, Mr. Hardiman joined Cure Violence, an award-winning public health model that has been scientifically proven to reduce shootings and killings. In this capacity, Mr. Hardiman helped oversee expansion of the program from 5 Chicago-based community sites to 26 sites throughout the State of Illinois.” Translation: he’s made a living hoovering up city and state taxpayer funds to push the cause of civilian disarmament. But it looks like all that anti-violence advocacy has been more of a “do as I say, not as I do” kind of thing . . .

Why so violent? CEASE FIRE director busted for domestic violence
May 31, 2013

Tio Hardiman, the head guy in charge of CEASE FIRE Chicago. Hey Tio, have you stopped beating your wife yet?

Chicago gave a million dollars tribute to these CEASE FIRE scumbags earlier this year to “prevent” gang violence.

It’s been a real success…

Seems like he has an obvious reason for not wanting victims

to be armed, so I wouldn't call him a hypocrite.

Self-serving SOB rings more true to me.

This was going to be my point, but you beat me to it.

The guy has lots of skin in the game, keeping victims unarmed. He is intellectually dishonest, but his motives are consistent.

I thought the irony here was that he was anti-domestic violence. He's not anti-violence at all. He's just for disarming the weak so that the physically powerful and the government can succeed at all the violence. It's ideologically consistent.
