The New Fall Guys
Not the politicians that won't hire people. Not the judges that won't convict.
Not the States Attorney that won't prosecute. Not the appointed hacks that parole everyone within a pulse.
Not even the exempts that have miraculously risen through the ranks without once laying hands on people, filling out an Officer Battery Report, or appearing in court.
Nope. McJackass has a new target to take the fall:
- The real story is how McCarthy told the exempt staff that they're not
following up on "the Plan," and that it's all the fault of the field
Admit it, Numnuts - you're a failure. You have no idea what Chicago crime is about and you have no idea how to run a police department.
I can only imagine the phone call from the mayor yesterday morning.
And he blames the sergeants?
Blaming the field sergeants? In most cases, they're the only ones backing the boys and girls on the front lines. We know there are notable exceptions to this, but for the most part, the field sergeant just wants to get through the day without having to do extra paperwork.
The chain of command has already been blurred beyond recognition with captains being phased out and lieutenants pretty much a joke at this point. Destroying the sergeants would complete the wholesale dismantling of the supervisory capacity of this Department - which at this point seems to be the unspoken plan.
