Another Rahm Lie
First there was the infamous "500 hundred more street cops" which was just an exercise in double counting.
Then the "hiring is keeping up with retirements" as District numbers dwindled, time off was denied and 1,200 spots were eliminated with the stroke of a pen.
Now comes the "combined Districts will lose no manpower. Rahm and G-Mac promised residents of the affected Districts that not one officer would be lost to cover their neighborhoods. They promised this on numerous occasions at a number of meetings. Yesterday, we pointed out that 002 and 019, both "combination" districts would be losing officers to Area teams, which are being sent all over the place.
Of course, if the residents who were lied to don't seem to care, or they were bought off by Rahm in some way, shape or form, we can't see G-Mac being unhappy to do Rahm tells him to do.
