Speaking of Selling Assets

Has the mayor looked into possibly selling the Police Department? Seriously. It would relieve the City of it's largest employee base. The City wouldn't be liable for all those big settlements they seem so eager to pay (a private company hiring it's own attorneys would be more likely to fight some of those cases anyway). We'd probably be able to live outside the city; we'd probably be able to strike if need be; equipment and training would be more up to date. We think this has been tried at least once before:

We think it worked out pretty well for the people over at Omni Consumer Products. At least at first. As long as it isn't low bid, we could work out some of the kinks.

Mayor Daley has announced the selling of all its Detective Ed Gorman Memorial Restrooms. Once sold it, all Eddie's Johns will have pay toliets, pay paper towel dispensers and pay sinks. The pictures of male swimmers in speedos will stay and the toliet paper will be a Det. Ed Gorman signature brand toliet paper. The toliet paper will be nice and white without any markings just like his supplementary reports. Everytime you flush a pre-recorded announcement will be made in Ed's own voice giving out helpful police and investigating advice.

The selling or long term leasing of any City property or service is a quick fix with terrible consequences. What Daley is doing is making Chicago look financially solvent during his time as Mayor and leaving our children and grandchildren revenue less in the future. The Skyway took in over 70 million a year before they granted the corporation that took it over the right to raise fees as much as double over the next 10 years. Once the money from the sell of this Skyway is gone and blown who do you think will have to come up with an extra 100,000 million a YEAR to make up for the Skyway over the next 99 years? It's the biggest shell game I ever saw.

As I drive through the inner city all I see now is new senior citizen buildings going up and section 8 houses and town houses. I don't get it? Most of us are working 2 maybe 3 jobs to have our house and maybe send our kids to a private school. The inner city skates free. Free new homes, new kitchen appliances and even furniture. Its a fucking joke and I am getting to the point of exploding. Where the hell in this free country's constitution did it ever say... give the nonworking, the lazy, the baby pumping machines a free ride at our expenses? You don't think that most of this construction is Kenny Brothers or other Daley kickback friends?
PEOPLE you better wake up before this is a totally communist country. We are paying for the lazy ass holes medical with no deductibles, food stamp programs, free beautiful new housing, WIC for the babies (By the way, WIC isn't a government agency, it id wholly sponsored by the Catholic Church of Chicago, that's right, your donations are going to encourage marriage less child births and reckless young baby pumpers) and so many more programs that are too numerous to mention.

This country has to stop rewarding bad behavior with monetary gifts just for votes.

Your working a few jobs, the spouse is working and all you can really do is just stay a float. Because your paying for all these fricking lazy ass holes.

My question is how is all these inner city jobless assholes driving expensive cars with no fucking jobs? You search them and its a pocket full of cash. This Counrty is FUCKED! The working class is being laughed at. You hardly see your kids because how much you work, your tired and your paying out the ass to live in a "quiet neighborhood". Who do you think is laughing their asses off at you? The same people who get up and scream they are being treated unfairly and because they are this or that they are being picked on, but never a mention about who is really floating their handouts! When I am told, Hey, I am paying your salary, I always say back, Yes, You are, with the money they take out of my salary to hand you a jobless check!

Your know how many people are screwed each year by the IRS because some illegal alien is using their social security number. Try explaining to the IRS that you didn't work in California and don't know why the IRS has a W-2 form in your name. They say, too bad, prove you didn't. Hard to prove a negative. As our medical deductables shot up this year, not only can a mexican sneak in our counrty, enjoy free medical, they can also pop out a kid in the USA and wow, its a citizen. So even if you deport the parent, the welfare system has to send checks to Mexico for the kid. Thats like hitting the lotto in Mexico where 1000. bucks a month will get you a house and a maid.
The largest P.O. Box center operated by the US POST OFFICE is on the Texas boarder. They estimate that over 90 percent of the millions sent in government checks there are picked up by the PO BOX holder who is a Mexico resident. They just "visit" the US each month to get their benefits.

Try going through their books!

Police Pension Board? They steer retirees to their rip off financial friends for gifts, cash and travel.

District and Unit Commanders. They get expense money every month but for what, just to pocket. When was the last time a boss paid for anything. They get invited to our parties for free, they don;t spend a penny of their money for anything.

It will never happen because the WHITE elected officials need to kiss the asses of the people of color to keep their jobs. It sickens me that asshole Daley would stand in front of a crowd containing a whole number of illegal aliens and kiss their asses while retired cops are being charged up the ass for medical insurance, widows of cops and firemen getting less money than woman with four kids on welfare.

They love fighting with us for little things on our contracts so we keep our eyes off the BIG THINGS.

Why can't we pay a little more in the pension so a retired cop or fireman can have medical insurance. How do they justify making a retired cop/fireman to pay so much a month for health care coverage but provide FREE coverage to all the people we have been locking up over the years?

We took an oath to hold up the U.S. Constitution and the Illinois Constitution when we accepted employment. The FOP should go to court and demand that Mayor Daley rescind the order for Chicago police officers not to ask or inquire as to the citizenship of an arrestee. But what the Mayor is really afraid of is that is allowed there will be documentation of how many illegal's are committing crimes and not just coming to the USA to better their families.

Wonder how forgiving the Mayor would be if it was his son that was beat with the bat? That grudge holding small dick midget wouldn't be!

If the garbage collectors went on strike, all their trucks would be sold and painted in Waste Management colors in a week.

And we would get the bills.

The Plumber's Union throws the St. Pat's parade for Hiz Honor and we get water meters. Installed by union plumbers and brought to you by hired trucks. As if we were not paying for water and sewerage without water meters. We are not just paying enough.

If some investigative reporter could dig into City Hall files, they would probably find a plan to sell all the C.F.D. apparatus to the company that runs the private fire service for Scottsdale, AZ.

We might even be able to find a plan to really go back to the old days and sell the Detective Division to Pinkerton's. After all that is where they started from after the civil war.

I agree with the state of Wisconsin. Make them work for their free money. There is plenty to clean up on the streets of Englewood. But working isnt as fun as selling crack and laying around drinking all day is it?

Instead of worrying about what whitey is using the "N" word. Why dont you black people try cleaning up your own race. You people use the "N" more than any other race.

About those frivolous lawsuits.

I have heard about the city not fighting all those frivolous lawsuits for almost thirty years and I have always wondered about something.

Why would somebody be a city attorney, it can’t pay very much. At least not the mega-bucks that a lawyer can make suing the city.

Now there is no proof that this ever happened even once. The history of graft and corruption in this town suggests that some of those cases could be “sold.” It would make sense, the city pays off, the plaintiff’s lawyer gets his cut, and the city’s attorney, maybe he gets his cut too.

Problem with lawsuits as I had explained to me years ago, is the Federal system. If someone sues the department in federal court and prevails, even if damages are only ONE DOLLAR, the lawyers get their fees.

So you bitch slap some asshole that kicked you in the balls. He sues you in federal court, but the jury understands why you slapped him, after all he kicked you in the balls. They have to uphold the suit, but they think they'll screw him over and award him $1 in damages. Ha Ha, we showed him.....wrong.

Plaintiff gets his $1 but the lawyers get their fees. That is part of the reason that suits that should be litigated are least that is how it was explained to me.

As a non-lawyer, but long time copper, I think it's screwy. Litigate everything that doesn't have 100% merit. It may cost some, but after a while, the assholes who file for the sue payoff will stop. My 2¢ worth. Too bad King Richard II won't agree.

It's not so much the cty atty's. It's the city. Daley specifically. It's really easy. Daley finds his buddies from DePaul that helped him pass and they get to be the plaintiff's. City settles cause they hire pol hacks that could not try a DOPW case, and tell them ahhh, just settle it so wwe don't loose every thing. Joe gets $18M (which he'll piss away in 18 days). Daley's Law School chum get 1/3 to 1/2 (depending if Joe finished his CPS education). And a fat kick back ends up on the 5th floor. All is well.

What we should be asking is why doesn't Chicago or IL pass a no-fault protection for their civil service employees??

For once let's stay on topic.Is the mayor selling assets to make up for a budget shortfall? If this is the case,the end results could be devistating to the citizens and empolyees in the longrun. What is he doing with the proceeds of these sales? Is he funding the policemen's,firefighters,or municipal workers pension funds? All of which are underfunded. After there's nothing else to sell,where will the revenue come from? These are the subjects that we as Police Officers,city employes,and citizens should be concerned about. Instead of trading juvenile insults and racial slurs,we need to concentrate on these things that affect our careers and retirement.
