Good News in Texas

  • Texas on Tuesday carried out its first execution using a sedative often used to euthanize animals.

    Cary Kerr, 46, was put to death by lethal injection for the 2001 sexual assault and strangling of Pamela Horton.

    The new drug, pentobarbital, replaced sodium thiopental in Texas' three-drug execution protocol.
Kind of appropriate that what is essentially an animal tranquilizer is used to put down two-legged animals. The execution went flawlessly and chances of recidivism are now zero.

It's not new...it's a city hall position. Mayors have always had a Dept Chief of Staff for Public Safety...they advise the Mayor on police stuff. Your tax dollars at work.

it is not a new-new position. it is a new-old position with rahm performing a name tweaking. it was established by the daley administration for cortez trotter when, months before the 2007 mayoral election, he told rmd he wanted to retire. rmd freaked and, to keep the plantation in order and have no black defection and/or possible black competition, rmd created the chief of public safety position. it allowed trotter to collect a pension from his sworn cfd position and to simultaneously collect a paycheck. trotter complied and stayed until after the election.

mistakenly, many believe j-fled was hired to run cpd and oemc simultaneously, which were added together to account for his huge paycheck. that is false. j-fled was hired to fill the cpd position AND the chief of public safety position, which rmd renamed as the chief of emergency management and response, which confused many into thinking j-fled was hired to run cpd and oemc. amazingly, j-fled reported to himself in those two positions. also, fire and oemc were suppose to report to j-fled, as they were previously suppose to report to trotter, but those other departments quickly realized he was a paper tiger/empty suit with no substance or training that made him qualified to have those departments reporting to him and rmd never compelled the departments to do as such, so it never happened, other than on paper.

usually unknown to the electorate, this type of mysticism, magic, and slight of hand is performed on a regular basis in the halls of government. that is one of the reasons a politician or fed should never, ever, be trusted, regardless of their name, background, education, pedigree, nationality, ethnicity or words coming from their mouth. they are all charlatans.

This job has to many dog asses laying down causing the hard workers to just work harder. The hard workers see the dog asses get away with their shit and the hard workers just keep getting shit on.
Yes the bullshit politics has hurt this dept but so has the average copper. How many times have you seen someone break a traffic violation right in front of you and do nothing? Our credibility is shot, thats why these mutts keep challenging us on the streets, because we dont challenge them. Nobody is saying you need to smack the shit out of someone but how about calling them on their bullshit?

It's something we never needed before...and, like Daley's "Coordinator Of Green Jobs," or whatever that was, something we'll probably never need again.

The position would seem to provide an additional layer of management above even the unnecessary and obstructive OEMC.

The ultimate authority on Public Safety, the person now holding the lives of all Chicagoans in the palm of her hand is as follows --

"Felicia Davis.
Davis, a former Chicago police officer, currently serves as the Vice-President of Administration at Kendall College, where she oversees operational planning and leadership and supervises career services, student housing, student life and student counseling. She has over 18 years of professional experience in the public service, culinary and hospitality fields. She holds a degree in culinary arts and a BA in hospitality management, both from Kendall College. She has an MPA from Illinois Institute of Technology."

http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/show-me-chicago/2011/02/chicago-mayor-elect-rahm-emanuel-announces-his-transition-team.html

I am confident that a wide selection of appetizing hors d'ouevres, properly maintained at serving temperature, will be available in any emergency.

Remember! Hot foods must be kept hot. Cold foods must be kept cold.

If that plan to "raise the bridges" during a calamity is intended to prevent the City Hall staff from escaping the Loop, I'm all for it.

just to give you an example of how lawsuits are different in the liberal and corrupt state of illinois. In illinois northern federal district court it is pretty rare for a case to just get dismissed by a judge for a motion request. Usually in the northern district(cook county chicago, will county etc) they get settled which make the lawyers rich and the judges also get nice perks when they are invited to lawfirms golf outings, dinner outings and "charity benefits".. which of course the judges are pampered. Here is the chilling fact. In california southern federal district court when a lawsuit is filed against a police department 89 percent of those cases are completely thrown out before going to trial... 89%!!!! needless to say it does not pay to sue police depts in the san diego area... gee, I wonder why downtown chicago is packed with civil attorneys.... what a bunch of corrupt nonsense.

Here. We'll ignore the wildings, the mob action, the beatings and robberies and hate crimes, and divert attention by writing about raccoons in "humorous" gang terms.

THE LAKEFRONT IS RACCOON NATION

"Some gangs take over intersections. Some hang out by riverbanks, with turf wars breaking out. The lakefront is being taken over by gangs of raccoons from Montrose Harbor on the north to Jackson Harbor on the South, and people aren't happy."

http://chicagoist.com/2011/05/03/the_lakefront_is_raccoon_nation.php

Funny. Some people deserve to be slapped around and laughed at and have their Iphone taken away.

Anyway, there are currently at least 25 news stories on the raccoon problem -- none on the worsening mass attacks.

Well, uh, yeah.

Just heard a TV news stories about how "Osama's wife is still in shock, according to her caregivers (!), but might have something to say later about her terrible ordeal."

There's still a great big freaking hole in the ground in New York City, too.

Oh -- word is that the "memorial" might be completed in time for the tenth aniversary. Hell, why rush it? A big construction project is a Good Thing.

The last I heard, they hired someone with a Doctorate in Divinity from Harvard to take charge of the whole Ground Zero situation. Good move -- it looks like divine intervention will be required. In the meantime, trucks keep going back and forth...

The City of Chicago has imposed many restrictions on the American Legion for Poppy Day. The City now requires a Daily Charity Permit, a liability insurance policy covering all volunteers, bright lime green safety vest on all volunteers working outdoors, and an ACCOUNTING OF ALL EXPENSES AND PROFITS FROM EACH AMERICAN LEGION POST that participates in Poppy Day this year.

This city fucking sucks!
A timed honored tradition established to honor veterans who gave their lives in defense of this great nation, where the proceeds provide assistance to veterans, being nickel & dimed by this shithole city which denies us the right keep and bear arms, allows illegals to live here in SANCTUARY and sell fucking corn out of push carts without permits or recourse if found to be here illegally! have parades for every fucking nation down main street Chicago, while St. Jude parade gets shoved into some obscure patch of grass along the lakefront.
As a result of this excessive restriction, this Memorial Day weekend you will not see those grey haired Men wearing their American Legion hats proudly at the street corner asking for any spare change, donations for exchange for those Poppies to wear on your lapel or pinned to your shirt, instead you will see remnants of drunken CINCO DE MAYO celebrants, Polish flags, Mexican flags, Gofuckyourselfistan or whatever goat herding fucking nation that has found sanctuary in this sorry excuse for an AMERICAN City.
Fly your AMERICAN flag proudly this Memorial Day and do not forget those who paid the ultimate price for freedom. Our City has.

I have talked to him several times on the phone and he is rude, condescending and surly he is not a golden one like you think.



Plus he ate all the damn corned beef at the St. Pat's party last year. Just rude, inconsiderate and plain rude again.



And I heard McCarthy, who is in the Gaelic Officers Club, does not even go to yankee games. He is a Mets fan, look it up, Duh, hello New Jersey anyone?
