Priorities and Cameras

Seems our old buddy Fran Spielman is taking a page out of the "Sarcasm and Silliness" handbook. Check out this article:
  • Forget about skyrocketing gas prices, soaring property tax assessments and corruption that has federal investigators crawling all over City Hall. Chicago aldermen have a more pressing concern: foie gras.
Way to go Fran! It's easy to make fun of the big shots if you try.

And the City is getting 70 new cameras to monitor high crime areas. The cameras will replace about 350 police officers (OK, we made that part up). But Aldercreature Shirley Coleman is starting to see the limitations that most cops saw a long time coming:
  • But Coleman was concerned to hear Daley say that only some of the cameras are monitored around the clock. "I don't want to see any dog-and-pony-show cameras in my ward," Coleman said.
Shirley? EVERYTHING with this political administration is a dog-and-pony show. There is no way that the mayor can hire enough people to watch every single camera every single minute of the day. What do you think this is - a casino?

We don't need cops when we can have Ghettocams! All we need is the cameras to conceal machine guns to lay down a field of fire on the offenders!

SCC, I always feel kinda guilty when I change the topic.
Perhaps after every 3-4 specific topics you can add an open or generic topic site. It will keep the integrity of the original topic and give us slugs a place to vent, ask questions or provide off-topic info without diluting the intended postings.
[Just a suggestion]

That being said..can anyone provide a list of the recent changes [4/26] IE 018, 013, 021,Vice, Traffic etc., for our edification.
Thanks to all and honor...... Our Thin Blue Line

Screw more cameras, I'd be happy with a PDT that actually stays in range and brings back results from L.E.A.D.S. in under 20 minutes.

Oh, and how about MORE OFFICERS on the street? We had a visiting W.C. who stated in rollcall his district has more Rapids up then we have total cars. What a disgrace.

Those may be turn lane cameras but if you think for a minute they can't be accessed if something of interest happens on that corner, you are sadly mistaken; after all, they belong to the city....

Some veterans bear visible signs of their service: a missing limb, a
jagged
scar, a certain look in the eye.

Others may carry the evidence inside them: a pin holding a bone
together, a
piece of shrapnel in the leg - or perhaps another sort of inner steel:
the
soul's ally forged in the refinery of adversity. Except in parades,
however,
the men and women who have kept America safe wear no badge or emblem.
You
can't tell a vet just by looking.



What is a vet?



He is the cop on the beat who spent six months in Saudi Arabia sweating
two
gallons a day making sure the armored personnel carriers didn't run out
of fuel.

He is the barroom loudmouth, dumber than five wooden planks, whose
overgrown
frat-boy behavior is outweighed a hundred times in the cosmic scales by
four hours of exquisite bravery near the 38th parallel.

She - or he - is the nurse who fought against futility and went to
sleep
sobbing every night for two solid years in Da Nang.

He is the POW who went away one person and came back another - or
didn't
come back AT ALL.

He is the Quantico drill instructor who has never seen combat - but has
saved countless lives by turning slouchy, no-account rednecks and gang
members into Marines, and teaching them to watch each other's backs.

He is the parade - riding Legionnaire who pins on his ribbons and
medals
with a prosthetic hand.

He is the career quartermaster who watches the ribbons and medals pass
him
by.

He is the three anonymous heroes in The Tomb Of The Unknowns, whose
presence
at the Arlington National Cemetery must forever preserve the memory of
all the anonymous heroes whose valor dies unrecognized with them on the
battlefield or in the ocean's sunless deep.

He is the old guy bagging groceries at the supermarket - palsied now
and
aggravatingly slow - who helped liberate a Nazi death camp and who
wishes
all day long that his wife were still alive to hold him when the
nightmares
come.

He is an ordinary and yet an extraordinary human being - a person who
offered some of his life's most vital years in the service of his
country,
and who sacrificed his ambitions so others would not have to sacrifice
theirs.

He is a soldier and a savior and a sword against the darkness, and he
is
nothing more than the finest, greatest testimony on behalf of the
finest,
greatest nation ever known.

So remember, each time you see someone who has served our country, just
lean
over and say Thank You. That's all most people need, and in most cases
it
will mean more than any medals they could have been awarded or were
awarded.



Two little words that mean a lot, "THANK YOU".

How are marines like a bunch of bananas?

They start out green, turn yellow and die in bunches on the beach.

Sick of hearing we're the best bs from the lowest dept of the Navy. There gay motto is "We're looking for a few good men.' That didnt work out so you started taking women. And yes.... ANYONE CAN JOIN The marines. Your about as exclusive as the Kool-Aid drinkers at Jones town.

All vets deserve thanks and gratitude. Be proud you served, wear yourlittle brouch pin and shut your mouth. Same goes for all you Rangers and Seals.

Don't be such a jealous bitch.

Admire from afar.

Just because you worked for Sears after you graduated from high school, don't take it out on everyone else.

Ya, anyone can join the Marines, but obviously you didn't.

I guarantee if I ever heard you spewing your jealousy in person, I'd slap the fucking taste out of your mouth coward, PO or not.

Post your name bitch, and I'll introduce myself to you IN PERSON.
