Actually, they backed down
when someone with a modicum of intelligence actually read the contract, realized they screwed up, then saw a calendar with an arbitration date not even 8 days away and realized they really really screwed up badly:
The city blinked Tuesday in a standoff with the police union over action the Chicago Police Department took against union leaders for failing to complete an annual shooting test.
[...] But on Tuesday, the city agreed to restore their police powers and have an arbitrator decide the issue...
Whomever is advising J-Fed is doing a rather bad job at it.
And since once again, Frank Main is stealing story ideas from the blog, we've got another idea for him to write about:
- Please check with the Academy Firearms instructors and get the dates and times of all the aldercreatures who qualified this year.
We'll let you know that it's only a Pass/Fail course, so you won't be getting any numerical scores, but it would be interesting to see which aldercreatures had to take the test more than once. It would be even more interesting to find actual eyewitnesses who saw the qualification attempts, not to mention a verifiable miracle. We're just saying...
