Startling Admission

Well lookie here Br'er Rabbit - the Tribune published another truth:
  • After approving a parade permit for a group protesting the G-8 and NATO summits in Chicago, the city has denied an identical application by the same group seeking to move their parade one day later in the wake of the White House’s decision to move the G-8 conference.

    The demonstrators asked to move their march from Saturday, May 19, after word came that the G-8 meeting scheduled to start that day had been moved by President Barack Obama to Camp David. The protesters filed a permit that was identical to the one the city approved for Saturday, except the date of protest was moved to Sunday, May 20, when the NATO meeting is set to start.

    But this time the city rejected the request, citing a lack of police officers as well as other security and logistics complications from the very summit the demonstrators are seeking to protest.

And look what our old acquaintance published in the Sun Times:

  • The Chicago Department of Transportation now says the planned protest would “substantially and unnecessarily interfere with traffic” if it were held on that Sunday.

    In a letter denying the application for a march that was sent to protest organizer Andy Thayer, assistant transportation commissioner Mike Simon wrote that there wouldn’t be “sufficient number of on-duty police officers, or other city employees authorized to regulate traffic,” on that Sunday.

So what we, along with a few thousand other coppers have been saying for any number of years now, is true? Manpower is the issue? "More with less" is in essence, unmitigated bullshit?

You're welcome citizens and media trolls of Chicago.

The line for apologies starts over to the left.

Why don't they just put cameras along the route to and from the hotels to the summit. That way they can save.

That will discourage anyone from doing anything illegal just like it does everywhere else in the city.

THEN if something still happens you always have the video tape to showcase in the media and to bring the criminals to justice after the persons are robbed, beaten, stabbed, or shot to death.

Chicago Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #7 Endorsements for the Primary Election
on March 20th, 2012

The attached list of candidates is the result of the fifteen-member Political Action
Committee and the full FOP Board of Directors' endorsements for the Primary Election
on Tuesday, March 20, 2012.

These endorsements are not in conflict with the Illinois State FOP. The membership
and this organization are faced with many issues now that are critical to our future.
There is speculation that the voter turnout for this primary could be the lowest
since 1942. Your vote does count and can certainly make a difference.

Please print and refer to the attached endorsement list when voting

F the FOP

The mayor must be about to burst a blood vessel, or maybe two.

It's a bitch when the truth comes to light.

HIRE SOME POLICE. Do something to protect the citizens of this city before there's no city left to protect.

Wait until the "Left Coast" agitators show up to tear into Chicago. They've been talking a lot of trash on their websites about destroying the city.

So they just told them, no you cannot have a permit, but if you protest anyway, we dont have the Officers to deal with you????? How is it looking getting those outside agencies to assist? Dont look for Folliard/Chudwins help. They wont authorize their troops to help out CPD. 2 faced know-it-alls.

Why would the protesters need a permit just look at the once "Magnificent Mile" on any Friday or Saturday night and you will see huge packs of 50 or 100 "honor roll" African American angry youth openly smoking weed, fighting each other and stealing iphones. The department can't do shit about them what would the UNDERSTAFFED department do about thousands of organized protesters who just showed up without a silly permit...NOTHING.

Andy Thayer is the office manager for loevy and loevy. He uses his position within the groups to help generate negative press against the police so that loevy and lovey can get more money.
