So...What's She Saying?

Sneed is saying something. We just don't know what:
  • Sneed's letter bin has been stuffed with mail about Chicago's new top cop -- former FBI agent Jody Weis -- and Mayor Daley's anger at the rise in violent crime.

    Our e-mail messages suggest police officers have found a new way to vent; readers want to kvetch. Without taking sides, here's a peek at their parlance.

Ok, she's getting letters. Cops "have found a new way to vent" - is she speaking of the website?

She then quotes four letters and at least one of them is making a simultaneous appearance in our comment section. First up is an allegedly retired deputy chief:
  • "Lose the 'Fed' attitude toward crime; local law enforcement must be quick and agile. Feds are used to picking and choosing which crimes to investigate. Doesn't work that way in a city. [...]
  • "Finally and most importantly, don't tell the line officers they will be scrutinized and held accountable in every aspect of their lives [from wearing seat belts to their relationships with their neighbors], without offering them some vision of a better work life. The officers can easily handle their radio calls with blinders on . . . [by] not noticing the suspicious group on the corner or the dice game in the alley. Preventible crime will go unchecked!"
Yet again, that implication that cops will do less if morale is low. Where could anyone possibly be getting that impression? Then she quotes a anti gun nut, a "more punishment" type and finally, a "lock the parents up with the kids" crazy person. It's almost like a blog, but it's on paper. And it's days behind.

I don't usually read the Scum Times, but one was laying around the office tonight. I always get a kick out of what Sneed and Mitchell have to say about us. Their journalism (if you can call it that) is sooo transparent that it defies logic.

Anyhow, I have to give kudos to the person below for finally saying something that makes sense. Let's find out who he/she is and elect them the next mayor, then governor, then president, then king/queen of the world!

Message #4 . . .
"If criminal activity can be met with swift and just as violent justice and punishment, I believe we would have a drastic drop in crime . . . especially violent crime. Parents should be sent to prison along with their kids if the kids commit violent crimes, or any crime for that matter. To me, that's the definition of holding parents [accountable].''

Her conduit for this mindless blather is none other that sourgrape overweight crybaby pHat Phyllis.

He doesn't get enough attention thieving, I'm mean running the Memorial Foundation, so he seeks her as an outlet for his overblown ego.

It is not "IF" it is "WHEN". For those of you still policing like it's 2005, get a clue. They get you on camera, kiss your ass good bye. Ask the boys form 63rd St! This is not a blue flu. This is the New Reality.

Before Brian Murphy left the police to move to another city department plagued with corruption and waste---at the request of "da mayor "... he was a sgt. in homicide in A/1 on MIDNITES...he was ALWAYS there if U needed him...but let the detectives handle their jobs without stupid micro-managing....if ANYONE would tell " DA MAYOR " to fuck off...it would be him...
