Taxpayers About to Get Screwed
Without using the dreaded term "beat realignment," Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis said Tuesday he would "reallocate" police resources by the end of this year from lower crime districts to those that need more officers.
Testifying at City Council budget hearings, Weis vowed to finally deliver on a promise made and broken by at least four of his predecessors.
He's not calling it beat or district realignment, which would entail a complete redrawing of the boundaries of the 281 police beats to coincide with crime and population changes.
That will have to wait until "Phase 2"-- after ward boundaries are redrawn, the superintendent said.
And let's just throw this out there - all criminals aren't all stupid. Where do criminals commit most of their acts? Where there are so many police that they are tripping over them wherever they look? No, they go to where the police aren't.
If you live in a nice area and you don't have a gun, you better get one. Get two. Get a safe. Train the spouse. Fuck Daley and his anti-gun outlook. You are responsible for your own safety and sorry, but we're shorthanded and coming from two miles away.
