J-Fed on the Radio
From the comments:
- Superintendent Jody Weis will be interviewed by Roe Conn on WLS 890AM on Thursday,April 24,08 from 2:00PM-7:00PM. I would imagine that he will be on in the early portion of the show.
Encourage your friends,family and coworkers to call in and ask some tough questions while he is on the air and with anonymity.
1. Why doesn't the city hire police officers? We are dangerously low,below 10,000 sworn members when it should be 13,500.
2. Why is the city unjustly stripping and firing Chicago police officers?
3. Why do we have to wait years for a contract and then receive a paltry 1% cost of living raise?
4. Ask the Superintendent to define MERIT,this should be interesting.
5. Why does MERIT exist and could the percentage be reduced to 10%.
6. Ask about the nonexistent morale problem and how he will address it and boost it.
7. Ask why we are still working 6 days in a row and why we don't have the ten hour day like he promised.
Please,circulate this information to everyone and call in. Be sincere,well mannered, courteous, polite and prepared. They will screen callers to avoid this situation so you may have to fabricate a story for the call screener to get on the air. There should be thousands of calls on Thursday, jamming up WLS's phone lines for hours. This is OUR chance to present our side to the citizens of the USA. WLS is a nationally broadcast station and the show is also simulcast worldwide on the internet.
Imagine if all the calls he got were from cops. This is doable. If nothing else, it'd be entertaining as hell.
