- The officers working Operation Protect Youth, which is a joke anyway, are being ordered to follow 5 food trucks all day long to the ghetto to watch them hand out free lunches. That's 5 two man cars and a Sergeant down for 8 hours a day five days a week for the whole summer to be private security for a program initiated by Michelle Obama and her friends. My guess is it is costing taxpayers $25000 a week Couldn't these officers be used for something better? Especially if we are so short on the street.
Can anyone confirm? This isn't what the OPY Program was initially conceived to do, but then again, that program started in Chicago ever ends up being anything but a monumental waste of time, man-hours and resources?
