Um, How About "No!"

  • In the latest of what could be many moves to plug a significant budget deficit, Daley administration officials are seeking to force city workers to take as many as three unpaid furlough days this year.

    City officials declined to specify how big of a shortfall they are anticipating. But legislation authorizing the furlough days refers to "a continuing decrease in revenues" that will create a deficit unless cost-cutting measures are taken.

    Under the ordinance, which will be considered by a City Council committee Tuesday, all non-union city workers who are paid $75,000 or more a year would be required to take three days off without pay before the end of the year. All non-union workers who make less than $75,000 would be forced to take two furlough days.
"a continuing decrease in revenues"? Does this mean that taxing the bejeezus out of people will cause them to shop around outside the City (and county) to pinch every penny? We went to a large retail "club" chain the other day in the suburbs and guess what we saw that we'd never seen before? Water. Skids and skids of nothing but name brand water in every conceivable size container. Does anyone else think that this suburban retail store is seeing a boom of unprecedented proportions due to the City water tax?

We'll make the standard demand of holding the line here:
  • In previous years, City Hall has sought furlough days from unions representing the vast majority of workers, but the unions have rejected such requests. Daley aides have begun discussions with some union leaders aimed at seeking concessions that could help the city save money.
Concede nothing. And instead of addressing the upcoming budget "shortfall" by cutting school waste, crooked land deals, fixed contracts, Hired Truck scandals, monument face lifts, selling City assets, twenty-two bodyguards, pay off every lawsuit and any number of other wasteful Daley brain farts, did anyone catch what the City Council debated today? Whether to allow "Jersey Boys" to use actual cigarettes in the stage production. What a brilliant fucking legislative body we have here in town.

We will continue De-Policing until you give us a good contract!

You want revenue? Pay us like you should, treat us like you should, and it will come back to you tenfold. It's that simple, midget.

Needless to say, us taking days off to help them with their budget shortfall would cause us to have a budget shortfall.

The only difference is we didn't give away 100's of million of dollars in fraud, bribes, kickbacks and other thefts.

"a continuing decrease in revenues"...Man! that has a nice ring to it. Keep up the good work boys and girls! Whether or not a direct result of our efforts, you can be assured that the CPD will get the blame (at least partially) for the money well running dry. Unfortunately, retailiation by Mayor Mumbles is a distinct possibility, so be forewarned. Stay the course, folks. Our side of the story is slowly being seen by more than just our immediate supervisors.

Unfortunately, SCC, some hyper-sensitive soul complained about the smoking in "Jersey Boys" and the aldercritters are faced with the decision to allow (or not) an artistic exception to the smoking ban in the city. Chicago theater is not only big business, some of the work done here receives national and even world-wide attention. As a matter of fact, one of our local theaters cleaned up at the Tony Awards and a local playwright won this year's Pulitzer. Certainly, the artists shouldn't be held hostage to a law that hampers the authenticity that even the smaller venues in Chicago are known for.
So give the council a break this time. There should be an artistic exception to the ban.

Typical boss talk. "If they are wearing colors or flashing gang signs they all get housed and we will take our time doing the paper."  So what is the ILCS charge for wearing colored clothing or flashing signs boss? Oh, I get it we're supposed to make something up for you. But in the end isn't the arrest always on the P.O.? Where will you be boss if I get hit with a rule 14 violation, offical misconduct, perjury etc? Will you have my back will you be there for the law suit? Aren't you the one that has always been telling us there are cameras everywhere and the dept. is watching us? I understand it's important for you to show that you did your job to your bosses so someday you will be an even higher paid boss. But if I get jammed making you look good will you deny any knowledge of what you said? I know stupid question boss. You knew nothing, right? How many P.O.'s have heard this talk? Well, we're onto you now boss and no way will I risk my job for you and your numbers! In the end the responsibility is on the individual P.O. to take someone's freedom away no matter what BS you tell us!

If I was the voice of the F.O.P. 7, I would agree to this. The only hitch is that everybody on the police dept. will take the same three days off. Maybe one of those days include the Bud Billiken Parade day.

Deal, Daley?

Mayor Daley is a true asshat!

We lost millions upon millions of dollars under his scandal ridden administration. He wants a new river walk, costing millions. He wants the Olympics, costing 100's of millions. He is in the process of selling off every revenue producing service this City owns which will leave the future Mayors fucked for cash.

You know, when you have the Mayor's salary, the perks, the envelopes and your wife is on several paid boards... You can take off the rest of your life. And I am sure that the Mayor's old man left behind a good number of cash filled shoeboxes for the kiddies.

How did a city this big have to elect John Stroger's Kid and Mayor Richard J. Daley's son? This family kingdom is what is screwing us. They keep their family in these spots so nobody exposes what the other stole.

Instead of furloughs, why doesn't Daley go back to his friends that also ripped us off. The Duff's should have a few extra million for donations. Maybe Anthony Barbara Trucking can drop back a few of the millions they got. Maybe the Hispanic Democratic guys can drop back a few million too. The list goes on and on. And so does the hundreds of millions of dollars that were wasted or stolen.

Daley, your nuts! Your old man at least took care of all the city business before he drained the well dry. Your Olympic dream is a waste and your furlough idea is sucks!

Thank God Mark Donahue is up on all this....Thank God we have such an outspoken champion on our side....Pompus ASS.. Hey, how about return him to service rank pay??????

A birdie told me some FOP slugs have been known to brag that their work day consist of--ARE YOU READY FOR THIS BOYS AND GIRLS????? 45 MINUTES. yes that's what you get for your dues so let them be paid for time spent working...

Geez, I should be the Budget guy.. And yes I'm going to poke at some of us too...How about Tact Teams and Gang teams work ummmmm, eight hours?????????? Why not..It ain't like you're out there solving murders and shit, please, what ever happen to pride in your work ethic...And no, I'm not new or frustrated, I'm a wheel police and right where i choose to be..And truth be told, I work an average 9 hour day...OK, let the pussies out there start saying their shit, the same sissys I used to beat up in school....

Finally, here is a novel idea for the county budget..If you are convicted you MUST PAY a daily fee for your incarceration... Crime victims pay their own medical or funeral bills that result from these jag offs, let them help to house their asses...We all pay to eat lunch at work..Everyone pays their way but these pieces of excrement, that shit for the media types....get free rides...Some rational person who doesn't suffer from liberal delusions please give me one reason why not.. If they have no money put they're asses to work!!!! They can run a major laundry for hotels, They can build pallets, they can make some basic stuff for the war effort..Hell, they can sort the paper recyclables the city collects...But if they have money or property they pay, just like the victims pay...Answer me this folks, why is it People's Law office, The ACLU, and others like them never cry out for the crime victims????Oh yea, money......I forgot, I thought they really cared about people...Am I a dumbass...Peace all and stay safe...

Oh yea, one last thought, not that anyone will do more then just Bitch, bitch, bitch...How did this Jose Sanders from channel seven go so long without getting pinched with some of that blow that made him take time off???? NO MORE BREAKS FOR THESE ASS HOLES guys and girls...Deep narcotic investigation wire taps have uncovered a few interesting tid bit on some of these local news folks and we exposed not a one, WHY?????? There was one female who loved to get really freaky with some major dope boys and her channel, when informed, asked CPD not to ruin her career...What about Cozzi's career???? Folks we have to start doing more then bitching....And those who say the slow down is working, you guys weren't on the streets in the eighties and nineties where 800 and 900 murders was the norm..Quit getting the hard ons, this ain't shit what's happening now....Sorry to burst your bubble....

The most amazing thing about these furloughs is that the multi-millionaire mayor never takes one. It would obviously only be symbolic since he seals as much as he wants but it is still beneath his regal bearing.

What's wrong with that idea SCC? I fully support it. And as a lead by example issue, the mayor and all aldermen should be the first to give up pay for four days.

But why stop there? How about reversing the pay raises that they have given themselves over the years? I don't think the people ever supported aldermen making six figures in the first place. How about a referendum on pay for elected officials?

How about losing the bodyguard details or at least trimming the fat by not having them escort the mayor out of state on his vacations. Do you think that might save a few bucks in the long run? Just think of not having to pay for the gas for a fleet of vehicles traveling to Michigan and the hotel bills for the bodyguards.

Just an idea to save money. I mean we're all in this together, right?

Fine example there boy! He ain't a member of OUR union!

These people who get hit with mandatory days off should be speaking to a labor lawyer to see if there's a suit that can be filed. As far as I'M concerned, if this bullshit facade of a union even attempts to make a decision that affects our income against our wishes I'll be looking for a labor attorney AND I'll be on the medical ALL THE WHILE, at least TENFOLD to number of days they fuck me outta my pay against my will. I'm sure I can find at least ONE labor attorney willing to harass the city just the same as the shitheads do to get my money back at least. If they claim I have to stay home while others perform my job instead of me then we'll add the entire city council AND the FOP into the suit just to round it out.

We'll point to the mismanagement of city funds causing a direct result in my loss of pay and anything else we can dream up to put on the public record. I can't wait to get to discovery!

The three days they try and fuck me out of will cost AT LEAST that much to even answer, not to mention the month off I'll be taking lounging at home.

25th District Update

Well on 28-JUL-2008 at Wrightwood and Kostner there was a memorial for the two shitheads who were killed. We had an outside roll call at 1900 hours. Meanwhile, the shitheads were sort of having their own outside roll call. There were at least 50 of them and they gathered and put up a memorial.

And what did we do? We did nothing and then like a bunch of pussy's we went back to our beats. What a fucking outrage. What a fucking outrage!!! We should have told them to get the fuck out of there and leave.

Later on in the evening at about 2220 hours someone asked for a car because now there were even more shitheads at the memorial. Once again we did nothing.

The message we told the shitheads that night was "we are afraid of you". When leaving from work, I drove by Wrightwood and Kostner and I heard a couple of shitheads saying "those pussy ass cops don't want to mess with us, they are afraid of us dog, they are afraid of us".

Americans recently reduced fuel consumption by six billion gallons as a result of fuel costs.

Liberal fucks like Daley and the rest of the Democrats in this city haven't thought about responsible peoples self determination.

First, as is now happening, the city is going to see a significant drop in revenue because people are getting fed up being taxed to death as a result of a totally corrupt and inefficient city and county government ruled by the same political cabal.

Second, people are going to leave the city. Many businesses already have.

I kind of hope gas goes up another $2 or $3 a gallon and Earkle and the Midget increase taxes. It will just expidite there being defeated and turned out of office along with the rest of the asswipes that come with them.

Daley has benefited from timing.

He entered office just as great numbers of people returned to the city.

Interest rates were going down.

Jessie Jackson sued Fannie Mae for the prudent lending practice of NOT leandng money to people who could not afford a home. As a result, Fannie Mae gives JJ's Foundation a $500,000 grant, JJ goes away, Fannie Mae developes the sub-prime, Mortage lending vehicle packages them and passes them on to Wall-Street to be sold to widows and orphans around the world.

There is a building boom across the Nation built upon a foundation of crap.

Daley and his cronies have not done a damn thing to bring health and prosperity to this city.

He and his minions have only been stealing as much as they can as fast as they can.

The jig is up now. The bill for all that free money, free lending bullshit has come due.

You think Daley has been looking like a dis-sheffeld person lately? You ain't seen nothing yet.

The chickens have come home to roost.

P.S. Keep on de-policing till you get a contract. Dont let Daley do to you what the McCaskey's tried to do with Devin Hester.

I wont give up any money but take 3 of my furlo days back and give me something in return. Like get rid of the farcical 8.5 shift. We do not get an unpaid lunch during our tour. You are expected to listen to your radio and on view anything while on lunch. So give me an 8 hour tour and I will give you 3 furlo days.

BEWARE FOP!

The old guys voted for the FOP (then known as the A/4 H/S golf club)

Because the TEAMSTERS were pushing for control. (Jimmy Hoffa was not available to speak at that time)

The FOP was the "reasonable alternative" to the silk suits.

Sounds like the new breed would vote for the Teamsters in a heartbeat.

Pissing away money on a "30 million dollar BEAN", a BILLION dollars(not the half-billion reported in the media)on Millenium Park, Arne Duncan (who didn't have ANY experience in education but appointed by Mayor Daley to run the Chicago Public School system are just three examples of WASTE in this city.

Starring of course, Eddie Burke, Richie Daley and all of their little friends and playmates. They will wheel and deal away your salary, house, car savings, but there are not all losers, some are winners. If your a little boyfriend of Daley you might win a very nice contract. If you are friend of Eddit Burke and have a bonus of being in the legal field you have a nice fat contract waiting for you. Yes, this is Chicago's the PRICE IS RIGHT where everything is for sale. There are very few rules for the Burke/Daley Em-Cees but once in a while the referee, Pat Fitzgerald, has to step in but that is usually millions of dollars too late for the taxpayer.

I found out today from my union rep that the union actually thinks that NOT HAVING A CONTRACT IS A GOOD THING SO WE CAN PRESSURE THE CITY AROUND THE TIME THE OLYMPIC BIDS ARE DECIDED! These guys(our union)are not listening. His point was that we will receive a retro check next year when prices are higher for gas and food and thus the retro check will help out more. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! Have you seen gas? Up 40% in the last year. Food, up about 5%. Inflation, up. These are our leaders. This is what we get with apathy. We rail on about the citizens not paying attention to what is happening with this city. Well, I have news for you, WE are not paying attention to our own business. Talk to your union reps and get them to understand what WE, the people that elected them, want. Lets take care of our own house before we ask people to take care of theirs.

Let's understand that any "furlough" asked for by King Richard apply to exempts only. Any rank covered by a contract supercedes all this bullshit. And according to all the police contracts, every civilian in the department has to be laid off before the first cop not on probation. We have the city, somewhat, by the balls. Want to hurt them now...buildup the overtime and make them pay.

From ABC News: "Daley declined to rule out layoffs of police and other municipal employees."
To cover 3 days of lost furlough, Daley would have to lay off 100 police officers. Is he going to lay off PPO's or only officers covered by the union? If they only lay of officers covered by the union, when a PPO is off probation are they going to then lay them off and hire back the more senior officers?
If you are layed off are you covered by unemployment? Will the city give severance pay? They will have to pay you for all your accumulated time, furlough, etc.
Will they confiscate your duty weapon since you live in the city and can no longer own a handgun?
I think a good solution to all this is to simply have the City give the money allocated to the police to to the REV'S.They can have their peeps do all the police work for the city. They would not even need any training since they already have years of experience in the criminal system and the have their own guns.

I know I probably won't get much sympathy here but here's my story none the less. I am a civilian employee of the CPD and have been for the last 21 years. I enjoy working with you guys and gals and have made life long friends along the way.

My beef with some of you is that you don't appreciate us. Not all of the civilians are dogs. I come in every day and do what is expected of me. Over the last few years since Lord Shortshanks has reduced our staff drastically I've had to do more and more. What really bugs me are the "limited duty" dog asses that are sent to work with us. I get stuck doing my job, the job of the person who got laid off 4 years ago, and the job of the lazy LD copper.

And what is my reward? I get to spend an additional two days with my family this year. Our Mayor has decided the only way to get this shit hole out of trouble is to screw the non-union employees and make it up on our backs. We get jammed just like you guys do.

SO the next time you critize civilian employees make sure you keep in mind there are those of us who do work and care about what happens to you guys.

Stay safe.

Hey you stupid motherfucking politicians!!!!!! You want to know why revenues are down???????????

Simple any person with half a brain can answer that. See you idiots think by constantly raising taxes you will generate more revenues, in fact all it does is chase revenue away. That is right AWAY!!!!!!!!!
You raised the city and county cigarette tax thinking it would raise revenues, all you did was chase the few remaining citizens that bought their cigarettes in shitcago and crook county to buy in Indiana.

You taxed bottle water and now no one is buying water in shitcago.

You keep raising the price of city stickers and the few remaining citizens that were honest and bought them now register their vehicles with family and friends who live in the suburbs.

You raised the cell phone tax and people are registering them out of the cities area code.

Illinois keep raising the vehicle registration fees and people are registering their vehicles out of state. How many cars on shitcago streets do you see with Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, California, and Wisconsin plates? Thousands, that's right because its cheaper to get plates in all of those states than Illinois. So instead of Illinois at least getting $40 it gets none and that money goes to another state.

You raised the sales tax and now people are buy expensive items out of the county. People are taking in movies and dinners out of the city and county causing businesses to loose revenue.

The price of gas is keeps rising and now no one is driving. ETC!!!!!

You want to raise revenue? REPEAL ALOT OF THESE TAXES AND FEES!!! What would you rather have, a few thousand people generating revenue or several hundred thousands? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out you bitches.

Another poster said they should tax 40 ouncers and I agree. Also this dumb state and city knows the the biggest Holiday is the 4th of July and every American celebrates it. Yet they make it illegal to sell fireworks in Illinois. Everyone knows that people in Illinois are going to celebrate it regardless and go to Wisconsin or Indiana (two states with common sense) to buy their fireworks. Those states get a lot of revenues from Illinois resident and monies from transport fees. All this revenue Illinois can be collecting but no it once again goes to another state and we are always crying broke. God I wish you corrupt dumb motherfuckers would just die!!!!

Hate to keep beating this dead horse but it still needs to be said.

How about all the useless pieces of "house mouse" shit that still get take home cars. With most of us doing a lot less why does IAD still need all those take homes? I'll ask the same questions I've asked in the past: 1. Why does the Sergeant in charge of IAD records have a take home; 2. Why doesn't the Chief of IAD establish a rotation for supervisors as it calls for in the GO? 3. Why in Gods name do the inside Inspectors need a take home? 4. Why does Dana's Civilian clout "commander" still get a take home? 5. Why do the Commander's of Personnel and Finance need take homes - need for an emergency personnel file or is there a need to give someone an overtime check at 0400?

And last, but certainly not least, why does J-Fed and the 1st have two (2) count em 2 cars each? Each morning as I arrive for work both brand spanking new $30,000.00 Ford Explorers are just sitting there awaiting the blessed asses of these two bosses to grace their bucket seats. I'm at an age were I will never have to ride in a beat car again. But for these two pompous ass bosses to have two cars each while you kids ride around in Junkers is inexcusable. Two cars each and personal valets – what a country!!!!

So John Kass, Mark Brown ,or any other scribe who may read this blog, please take a look into this waste of money by these two very special bosses. And while you're at it ask why the GO on take home cars isn't being followed.

Inquiring minds want to know. All this while some dam hard working civilian employees will have to take unpaid “furlough” days. What asshole came up with that designation – using the term furlough to define a screwing is beyond the pale.

Oh, I get it we're supposed to make something up for you. But in the end isn't the arrest always on the P.O.? Where will you be boss if I get hit with a rule 14 violation, offical misconduct, perjury etc?

**I would NEVER do this no matter what a boss told me. There is no law broken by the choice of clothing you wear therefore it is an unlawful arrest, violation of rights and unlawful order from a supervisor. I'm not stupid boss, but I think you are!

BY FRAN SPIELMAN City Hall Reporter
At the behest of Mayor Daley’s former law partner, a City Council committee agreed Monday to extend until 2040 a franchise agreement that has allowed a private company to tear up Loop streets to install the chilled water pipeline needed to cool downtown office buildings.
The original agreement with Northwind, Inc., a subsidiary of Commonwealth Edison, was due to expire in 2020.

There is about 500 million dollars that is off the "Books" of the city of Chicago.

That 500 million dollars is the accumulated revenue from the 130 some "TIF Districts" that Daley and the City Council have been drawing up on almost every square inch of vacant property in the city (think land grab).

For those that are not otherwise aware, "TIF Districts" are areas of the city where all the tax revenues received as a result of the assessed taxes on property within the "TIF District" is only spent within the "TIF District" for a twenty year period after the "TIF District" is established.

As an example, let's say all of any given Beat was designated a "TIF District" and at that time that Beat/TIF District was establsihed the total tax revenues from all the property tax assessments in that Beat was 100 million dollars.

Under this "TIF District" financing that Daley and the Council have been abusing for years, that hundred million is only spent within that given Beat/"TIF District" for twenty years.

These districts bleed into different Wards. There is no structure on how they are drawn. They are drawn at the whim of the Mayor and the eunechs in the city council.

The original spirit of TIF Districts was to cultivate investment in blighted areas. Daley has perverted it so beyond what its original intent was it's turned into his personal piggy-bank.

Guess who designates how the "TIF District" money is spent? What Consultants, Developers, etc. get money out of these TIF's?

The mighty midget.

From the point where the "TIF District" is establish and tax assessments go up, the rest of the city only gets the difference between that future total, tax assessment revenue, less the accumulated tax assessment revenues at the time the "TIF district" was created.

The jist of all this is, areas of the city designated "TIF Districts" are drowning in (off the book) cash while the rest of the city is getting screwed making up for the shortfall in tax revenues.

Remember I said this 500 million is not reflected in the city's balance sheet.

There is no auditing of the receipts and disbursements of the monies going in and out of these "TIF Districts". It's all overseen by the council of eunechs who suck the mighty midgets digit.

A couple of years ago a READER reporter named Ben Joravsky asked the city council why this 500 million isn't on the books and the council basically told Jaravsky to go fuck himself as the council meeting was gaveled to a close.

The big boy media in this city has had there heads totally up there ass on this outrage.

I don't think the average Chicagoian has a clue how much TIF money has been collected or how much has been spent and that these crooks control all this money with no accountablity or audit.

This is where some of your raise money is boys.

Check it out. I'm not making this up.

Then they finally got to keep 40 hours a year and they were still the POLICE...I don't hate the police you punk, show me one and I'll shake his hand... Trust me, if you ever work for me you'll know me and those who do and are reading this are laughing because they know it's me and they also know I'd police circles around you...I am tired, I am fed up and I'm grieving the loss of someone who had more character then all of us put together... And I ashamed, ashamed of a department I used to be proud of. Where men were men and the police were the police. The did the job for that reason, not for the compensation package..Hell, yes we deserve far more then we get and so do all those poor bastards serving in Iraq...Should we protest???, YES!!! For real though, not from behind our little computers like women (sorry ladies)...Just research the Boston PD and see what they do, they march on city hall, they have a political action committee...Who do we have??? FOP, and you voted for them not me...Get off you're asses and out from behind your computers and stand up and be counted...When I think of some of recent "accomplishments" of FOP...Baseball hats, WOW, that was huge wasn't it!!! What else, oh yea, D2A for who????? Not you in the blue shirt..Keep electing detectives who can retire once they're out of office and shit will never change for you except the occasional uniform standard....Yea, I'm a coward, sure, whatever kid...

Once last thought for you son... lets ask the blue shirts in the fast districts, not places like 19, 20, etc.... have you ever had to wait long for an assist on a 10-1 or call for help and only blue and white finally came (day was busy as usual) cause the tact/gang team took their "Friday duck?" Yea, you police loven tact guys, since I'm such a police hater, were so CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR FELLOW OFFICER while your ass sat on that bar stool when it should have been in a squad car at least backing up an officer...So don't talk to me about hating the police you little shit, like I exposed a dirty little secret,,You stupid fuck, in case you didn't know, EVERYBODY KNOWS!!!!! But I'd die for my guys and you take a duck... How about districts with heavy police populations???? tact and Gang working hard for eight to "protect the home front" as you all like to say...NO FUCKING WAY!!!How dare your punk ass say i hate the police, you don't give your fellow officer a second thought...Has your ass ever ran out the station alone, leaving your partner to finish the paper on your DOPW so you could respond to a call for assist... I doubt it, you're probably to afraid to ride alone... You'd vote for Mayor Daley tomorrow if you were getting something out of it because that's the selfish type of mother fucker you are... I think duck for guns is great or if a guy is getting hammered with court or has court in the morning and you're working to 4AM... Sure, there needs to be perks..PERKS, dickhead, not a way of life...But you selfish little pricks feel entitled to ducks all the time cause you grabbed a couple bags of weed and a felony DOPW.... Yet, let one of you need a transport and where's the dogs on the watch????? FUCK YOU, YOU LITTLE SHIT, wearing the uniform or in your case a vest with no name tag or star, does not make you the police...And you, you selfish little mama's boy, you could could care less about your fellow officers...You are what we call a ONE-WAY MOTHER FUCKER......

For your own safety, you should have the radio ON during lunch. With the car and uniform that might as well have a bull's eye painted on them, you are a sitting duck regardless, but having the radio on and listening up might just be the little difference that ends up saving your ass, or another policemen's ass. Shit happens, be ready. That is all.

They love to whine and bitch. Only civilian managers and exempts are affected. Support the furlough days. Let white shirts take days off. Last laoff attempt for Po's was in 1985. That was never carried out. I support furlough days for non-union exempt employees.

You guys keep on saying this but I have read the contract and that is nowhere to be found in it. Page 36 covers layoffs and it only provides that layoffs will be done by seniority. Civilians may not be hired to replace laid off officers but it does not say anything about civilians having to be laid off first.

Response to $500 million dollar "TIF" districts.

Yes you are completely correct with your evaluation of "TIF" money. I suggest readers of this blog go back and read/re-read you posting. And then actual investigate themselves.

However I do disagree with a portion and only a small portion.

The actual total amount of money in the "TIF" / slush fund has increased dramatically,it is fast approaching $1,000,000,000.00
The actual amount in the "TIF"/slush fund is $893,000,000 to date, and the largest "TIF" district has just been created: Roosevelt south to 18th street, from Kolmar east to Western ave.( Sun Times; Classified section; July; City Council Ordinace). We all know the area,and today it is infested with Gangs,Drugs etc.. but so was the Depaul 25 years ago and so was Maxwell street and the United Center. Imagine the possiblities 10years from now and not a dime of Future Property Taxes will go to its intened purpose, for an additional 13 years.

Readers of the READER can find an excellent investigative report, I believe to be 5 or so pages in length.

The "TIF" district works exactly as described except the taxes collected in that "TIF" area never get to the County Treasure's Office.

EX: Your Proptery taxes for the entire year are $4600.00, as you read your Property tax bill that amount is then broken into many sub-catagories, i.e. Schools,Parks, Police and Fire,Libraries etc...
The only problem is NOT ONE DIME of the $4600 is allocated to those sub-catagories. It goes directly into the "TIF" fund. (State Statute spells all this out).
So every household/business in that "TIF" pays property Taxes into the "TIF" fund and not its intended purpose...For 23 years.

This "TIF" money is then allocated as THE MAYOR SEE'S FIT. Another example: The Tiffany Glassed Dome in the Chicago Cultural Center was repaired with "TIF" money, at a cost of $2.5 million,( WTTW: Chicago Tonight report). There are some good examples of how "TIF" money is spent,It has brought some major retailers to Michigan Ave,Taylor St, Maxwell and surronding areas which creates amusement,Hotel taxes and fees etc.. Thats all good for the City and US(City employees). But there is no accountablity or record keeping associated with these Funds. And thats not good.

On another note:

What about the proceeds from the Skyway lease deal.It has been stated by the Mayor himself that these funds were to be used in an Emergency Situation. Apparently a $400 million shortfall prior to the settlement of Contracts with the Police and Fire, Increased stat's of Violence, Failing Schools( parently problem really), Mortgage Failure, No Capital improvement plan(infrastructure) and Ridiculously taxed citizens are no longer considered an EMERGENCY.

But the City is and will be able to secure The Michael Reese land now for $85 million and then reduce its future cost with a $20 million tax rebate. I still do not understand that one. The Olympics have a cost attached at 5.9 billion to build the infra structure, that kinda makes sense
since citizens will be able to use the infrastructure long after the Olympics are gone, but those are in Today's numbers, not 2009-16. We all hear of the crooked deals Today, what about then?

The original poster knows his facts and I applaud you. But it seems there is a bigger issue here than what appears at the surface. The rest of the Citizens of Chicago seem to be docile, along with the Media. Maybe, it has been ingrained into our DNA as Citizens that, this is truly the cost of living in the City.

These facts are right there in front of everyone to investigate themselve. With the internet so readily available search yourself.

We may have missed the "boat" on Aldermanic elections last time but there is an Election this Novemeber for State Rep's and Senator's, and the two go hand in hand. Please Vote and Vote with an informed Hand.

25th District Update

Well on 28-JUL-2008 at Wrightwood and Kostner there was a memorial for the two shitheads who were killed. We had an outside roll call at 1900 hours. Meanwhile, the shitheads were sort of having their own outside roll call. There were at least 50 of them and they gathered and put up a memorial.

And what did we do? We did nothing and then like a bunch of pussy's we went back to our beats. What a fucking outrage. What a fucking outrage!!! We should have told them to get the fuck out of there and leave.

Later on in the evening at about 2220 hours someone asked for a car because now there were even more shitheads at the memorial. Once again we did nothing.

The message we told the shitheads that night was "we are afraid of you". When leaving from work, I drove by Wrightwood and Kostner and I heard a couple of shitheads saying "those pussy ass cops don't want to mess with us, they are afraid of us dog, they are afraid of us".

oh cry me a fucking river what do you care about kostner/wrightwood for? maybe the sgt should have taken all the cars out of roll call to harass the grieving mourners and spark a lawsuit? at least you're working in 25 where there's decent places to have lunch at.
