Cops as Parents - Again

  • A measure that would bump up Chicago's nightly curfew by 30 minutes was advanced Tuesday by a City Council committee after a police official predicted it would help potential young crime victims by reducing their exposure on the street. Proposed by Mayor Richard Daley, the legislation would establish a curfew of 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
  • Police Committee Chairman Isaac Carothers (29th) expressed similar concerns about overburdened police officers, even as he supported the rollback.

    “It may prevent a kid from being a victim. But we really use a lot of police resources when you get involved with curfew. That’s a car that’s off the street….Curfew is very serious. But at the same time, you do have aggravated batteries. You’ve got robberies. You’ve got shootings going on,” he said.

    “We have to figure out a way to try to get more police on the street. That will be the most effective tool in trying to deal with — not only curfew, but all the other crimes we deal with every single day.”

So even though aldercreatures recognize we're operating shorthanded and there are dozens of different and more serious crimes that ought to be addressed, they're still going to put this on our plates, manpower be damned.

Unless J-Fed is going to be allowed to gut headquarters, redraw the Districts and clean out the house mouses? Maybe the shortages are about to be solved.

If your kid is out there after curfew, it's on your head when Pookie shoots him.

You're a failure as a parent, and I won't try to fix you're many years of 1/2 assed (if we're lucky) parenting.

Parents should be steeply fined for multiple violations.

One minutes bosses want arrests, then they want contact cards. Now, word from the bosses is get curfews over anything else.

Good to know manpower is being diverted from police work to babysitting.

Not to mention these new curfew forms! They used to be cut and dry, be done with it in five minutes. These things will take longer to fill out than case reports!

Count me out.

Carrothers has limited Police Powers as an Aldercreature.
Perhaps instead of flapping his flabby jowls he could requisition some vans from Fleet management & enforce the Curfew Law himself.
It's all about being proactive & helping your constituents.

Isn't that right Ike?

Pretty soon will be getting school rosters going door to door after curfew and asking the parents "Do you know where your child is?" Then we will be issuing tickets.
Also
Mayor Daley has also suggested that ticket writing be an Olympic event......You have from now till 2016 to qualify for your gold medal.

WILL YOU ALL JUST SKIP THE CURFEWS???
Remember, he/she told you they were exercising their constitutional right to gather.
There's a reason the curfew form went from a 1/2 page to a full page. That is to STICK IT UP YOUR ASS when BooBoo's mother sees you in federal court for violating his rights.

MANPOWER - That is the problem!
How does the masterminds of this city, county and state expect us to cover all of the bars, catch and prosecute these smokers. We
cant let them get away with smoking. Why, because, smoking warms up the climate, hence GLOBAL WARMING. We need to find and fine these offenders. Take their money and give it to the masterminds so they will have something to steal for Christmas because it is only 11 months away. Hell, if you can't steal taxpayers money what is the sense of being a politician.
Keep up the good word, Blago, Rezko and Obama would be proud.

Redraw the districts??

Thanks, SCC, that will be great for the north and southwest sides.
The 16th and 22nd Districts will be reduced to one beat.

Meanwhile, the 5th, 7th, and 15th Districts will each have 432 beats.

You guys are taking the wrong approach on this one. You guys need to view this as a TOOL to help you make arrests. Violating curfew is a valid Terry v. Ohio stop---it is probable cause for you to investigate further crime. You guys should look it is a great opportunity to to stop, detain, search and arrest. It is probable cause. It's the broken windows theory of crime prevention.

I was listening to zone 10 and heard a call that mamma calls the police 'cause her 16 y/o son refuses to go to school. If pookie doesn't want to go to school, you know he gonna be out late at night hangin in the hood.

How about charging mom and dad each time you bring home the kid...another form of revenue for the city. Just keep on issuing tickets and when they don't pay put the yellow boot on pookie, jr.

yeah, let's do this curfew forms. They are so long (longer than a case report like someone else said) that if you do two, one at 2200 and one at 2300, it will prevent you from getting that 2345 hr. domestic with the offender on scene that the dispatchers love to give us!

I led our district in curfews for three straight years. No big deal, I knew where the kids hung out.

Then they made the shit complicated, several years ago, so I never wrote one again. Not one. Now it looks like the process is even more complicated. Forget about it. Y'AINT GETTIN SHIDT.

I have a new neickname for Jody, after the swiping directive:

Unfortunately, the underage gangbangers do not have parents that will EVER pay the fines. No lesson taught there! Get the white kid in Mt. Greenwood or Sauganash, and they will never be out after curfew again! Maybe they should issue warrants for child neglect after the third curfew. That is the only way to make these ghetto rat parents act like parents.
