Decriminalize EVERYTHING!

We quoted McCarthy a few days ago when he complained that criminals who shouldn't even be on the street, are out committing crimes with astounding regularity. We pointed out that if there are no penalties, criminals will almost invariably re-offend.

Guess what Rahm wants?
  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel today called on the General Assembly to decriminalize marijuana possession statewide and to reduce the penalty to a misdemeanor for those caught with 1 gram or less of any controlled substance.

    During 90 minutes of testimony before the House-Senate Joint Criminal Reform Committee in Chicago, Emanuel encouraged lawmakers to challenge the “assumptions that are embedded in the criminal justice system.” The mayor argued that reducing the penalties for minor drug possession would allow the city and state to focus their efforts on more violent crime.

    “It’s time, in my view, to free up our criminal justice system to address our real public safety challenges and build on the progress that has been made,” Emanuel said.
Way to pander Rahm! Maybe next we could lower the threshold for Burglary - you can have one Weber BBQ Kettle and one car radio before felony charges kick in. Drop the dollar total for Theft, too. Everything becomes Theft of Lost/Mislaid Property, even if that property was "mislaid" in your locked garage.

the trend for society nationwide continues... when you give up struggling to change people's behavior, make sure to describe the wrong thing as something other than wrong. TADA! Problem solved.

The cop is a bad guy. The criminal is the good guy.

We are in a bizarre changing world.

I think I am voting yes because we really are on the last leg of law enforcement careers having the scope and authority that they currently require.

soon, new hires will be downgraded to monitors, report writers, and targeted administrative response, such as domestic handlers, traffic crash handlers, disturbance handlers, mental transports, or general reports for misdemeanor offenses.

To all the media trolls out it this way, a 'honor student' who may never get a scholarship according to Rahm, could have up to 19 'nickel' rocks each weighing .05 gram and selling for 5 to 10 bucks weighing a total of .95 grams. Now dont you think these bags are for sale? So media trolls dont you think this is crazy that someone could have 19 bags of crack on them and get charged with a misdemeanor? Sorry coppers for wasting your time on this post this was for the media who reads this. Look into this ask questions do your job! I know some of you are starting to question the emporer

then pack-workers will just carry their whole Jab with no worries. Get rid of the first 13 bags and go back and get another gram. Everyone will then know they are carrying around $130-$150 dollars in drugs or money, rob them, someone winds up shot, and it does nothing for violent crime LOL.

I am not against decriminalization and taxing it though.

Take the mayors request any way you choose. My opinion is that he is looking to kill the O.T. made on small amounts of narcotics arrests. This is his end around to screw us after offering us a crappy contract. By the way Mr. Mayor, cocaine, heroin, and other illicit drugs are treated as felonies for good reason. Also, most offenders caught with small amounts got the drugs by selling stolen goods, burglary proceeds, street robberies, etc. But how would Rham know that since he did not grow up in our city?

Rahm wants to challenge the "assumptions that are embedded in the criminal justice system"

I've got an assumption about Rahm and the current Chicago political system - that Rahm is an asshole and could care less about Chicago. That we are just a means to an end in his political trajectory.

And the only embedding that I can think of embedding are people like McCarthy and others that work under Rahm are so embedded up Rahms ass for the same selfish reason - personal gain - how they are "in this" to benefit somehow.

The system is so screwed up because of people like this. What happened to honest people holding office? Why is that so rare anymore?

Sorry, SCC, but you're losing the difference between victimless offenses and actual crimes against people.

It used to be against the law to manufacture or possess alcohol, except for medicinal purposes.  We changed that because the law was causing more harm than it prevented; instead we now have regulations for possession and consumption related to age, not driving a motor vehicle, etc.  Maybe pot is in that category.  We probably won't know all the details unless it's decriminalized, but the word I hear from Europe is that it's a whole lot less bad than our way.

And when it's legalized, it'll be sold by tobacco shops instead of street dealers.  The street dealers won't get the business, and a whole lot fewer people will go looking for them.  Isn't that a GOOD thing?

It's also up to a gram of Controlled Substances, so up to 10 rocks or 10 blows - misdemeanor.

Just when you think Democrats can't become an even more of a pathetic joke, they manage top themselves

The policies they advocate are something out of an Onion article

Behold...

New Berkeley Law Will Require Free Weed for Low-Income, Homeless

Berkeley, Calif., will now require medical-marijuana dispensaries to give away free cannabis to very low-income patients, CBS reports.

The city council unanimously approved an ordinance Tuesday that mandates the dispensaries hand over 2 percent of their total inventory to low-income folks and homeless people.

They won’t get away with giving out their leftovers, either, as the ordinance requires that the pot must be good quality.

The ordinance reads: ”Medical cannabis provided under this section shall be the same quality on average” as marijuana “dispensed to other members.”


See what they've done here? The "argument" isn't over the insanity of providing free weed to the homeless...but that the QUALITY of said weed be up to standards.

After a couple of decades of seeing what hard drugs do to people, I would guess no. It's not going to be a good thing.

Intoxicants vary. The hard stuff, and weed, get you there at lightning speed. That's not a good thing. Alcohol in it's many forms may get you buzzed, but that's not the do all and end all to it. It is with all the other stuff.

I can see that's where we are going, so I guess we will find out. I am not looking forward to the damage it will do to friends and neighbors kids when everyone tries it. How about you? Look at the young kids you know for the next few days then come back and tell me you think it's a good idea.

The trend and the thinking behind this is going nationwide. Drug use is a health problem and should not be a criminal problem. Locking a user up will not help the user. Form drug courts and use the money to get people into treatment. Right now the police get all proceeds from property confiscated in drug raids. Stop this and use money for drug treatment programs.

Well, your thinking sure sounds logical. But, it has not worked out that way in places where pot is either legal or winked at. Street prices are lower then the legal shops which are regulated, and minors still go to the street dealers. In fact, it has increased pot use for most age groups. Minors are thinking that if the adults were lying about pot use then they must be lying about the other drugs.

First - the politicians are also talking about decriminalizing crack cocaine - reducing to a misdemeanor.

Second - do you actually think the dope dealer is going to say "ok, let the west side grocery store owner sell the weed"?

Third - do you know who owns the "tobacco shops" on the south and west sides?

Please don't attempt to make comments on subject matter you have absolutely no idea about. Your comment makes no sense to anyone who has worked the street.

People will do drugs legal or not.... If you legalize all drugs guess what the same people will do drugs. People are not going to do more drugs if it is legal!!! Any kid can get drugs on the streets easier than alcohol now! We have laws for people who break them we don't have to lock people up for getting high lock them up when they do something to hurt someone or rob...you get it .

Your point is that if we legalize it, no one new will try it?!!!!You can't really believe that.

So you are saying that if I told my kids to help themselves to my liquor cabinet and the beer in the frig, that it was OK with me, they wouldn't jump in? That is what you/they are advocating. That is so irresponsible that I cannot believe it comes from our eleceted official.

Hey moron. I don't want to be driving anywhere near anyone who is stoned. Pot these days is laced with everything. I don't care if it comes from a dispensary or not.

Such faulty reasoning on your part. Many people do not use substances or even take action on things simply because those substances or actions are deemed illegal and they do not want the shame of doing so. When you make things legal, it increases the use. This was proven during prohibition when alcoholism rates tumbled. In countries where drugs are legal or the use winked at, use has increased. Such seems to be the case in the states of Colorado and Washington. I am of the belief, and it appears so is the Mayor, not to legalize, but to decriminalize personal possession of small amounts of all controlled substances. The theory that if we legalize all drugs and tax them most of this crime, violent and property will simply disappear is naïve at best. A better way is to take away the money generated by police confiscation of drug proceeds and use it to start drug courts and treatment centers, not to buy more police equipment.

Just legalize it all, the drug war is unwinable andc100 years is enough. All it does is provide money for the gangs and instigate death and mayhem on the streets. Did we learn nothing from prohibition?

Using your logic, the war on poverty should also be discontinued. It has been going on longer then the war on drugs and we have more poor people at present.

Yes, we conservatives will legalize everything as soon as we get the limited government we hypocritically keep preaching for.

What that means for you and all of your responsible freedom loving friends is that as soon as my taxes go down 97% and I'm allowed to carry a sidearm anywhere I feel like it, you will be able to take all the drugs you want and pay your own medical bills, school bills, parks, etc. No unemployment, no social security, no SS disability, etc.

Ready for that? I am.

Remember, though....nothing happens until my taxes go down 97%.

To all the media trolls out it this way, a 'honor student' who may never get a scholarship according to Rahm, could have up to 19 'nickel' rocks each weighing .05 gram and selling for 5 to 10 bucks weighing a total of .95 grams. Now dont you think these bags are for sale? So media trolls dont you think this is crazy that someone could have 19 bags of crack on them and get charged with a misdemeanor? Sorry coppers for wasting your time on this post this was for the media who reads this. Look into this ask questions do your job! I know some of you are starting to question the emporer

Man, you are either a troll, desk cop, or uneducated citizen on the street value of marijuana. Its called a nickle bag because it's 5$. The street rate for a gram is $20. A nickle bag contains around .25 grams, not nearly enough for a decent joint so its mixed with tobacco. If you think 4 Marujuana/tobacco joints is enough for drug dealing, you sir are a moron.

My son got an underage drinking arrest that's a class A misdemeanor. How are these drugs not being punished as hard.

9/24/2014 08:21:00 PM

How is something that has a legal market(alcohol), just an arbitary age assigned to it, be more punishable than a substance(Marijuana etc) that has no legal market for it?

Lawmakers are too lazy change this I believe. Right now in Illinois Underage Consumption of Alcohol is a Class A misdemeanor and Posssesion of under an ounce of cannabis is a Class B misdemeanor.

The brutal murder of 9 year old Antonio Smith by a gang member recently released from jail - this should and must be the story that moves Chicagoland to change how we punish hard core gang members who break our gun laws.

My suggestion is simple:

Gang members convicted of gun crimes, felony assault, attempted murder, murder - will be forever banned from the City of Chicago.

We will run the gang members out of town and with electric monitoring devices (for life) ensure that they never set foot in Chicago.

Where will they go?

I suggest the towns of New Haven CT (home of Yale university) and Cambridge MA (home of Harvard). Virtually all US supreme court justices and Presidential nominees from both parties wen to to Harvard and/or Yale. Our cowardly, corrupt elite needs to experience Chicago's gang members, up close and personal.

What do you say?

Myth 1 Pot increases the urge to drink milk and eat chocolate chip cookies

Myth 2 Pot increases a sudden desire to play Jimmy Hendrix music full volume

Myth 3 Pot makes you drowsy and it becomes easier to just go to sleep

Myth 4 Pot causes cerebral atrophy

He's talking about crack you fucking moron. Street rate for weed isn't $20. Nickle bags of weed don't contain .25g. Maybe in the suburban hydo weed world, but that is not what we are talking about. You sound like these retards the Tribune/Sun Times comment section who think that legalizing weed will end shit head violence. Shit heads don't give a fuck about weed. The good money is in dope and anybody with a pubic hair of time on the job knows this unless they have had their head stuck up their ass. You could legalize weed and you will still buy weed on the streets for cheaper. The real problem what with Rahm is proposing, and what the poster you ignorantly mocked pointed out is that have .95 g of crack will be misdemeanor. That amount of crack is not personal use and to think so makes you a fool.

It's not dumbfuck. That why they have classes(1,2,3,4,x). People don't go to prison for 1 PCS conviction and are offered drug school as a option the first time they catch a case. And a PCS under gram usually doesn't make it to trial.

Thank you for exposing this. This mayor is an absolute dumb a$$. Suburban police chiefs are pissed off surrounding Chicago that he is trying his decriminalization or legalization of drugs like heroine, cocaine, and ecstasy for the entire state. And the Superintendent who sits right next to him at this meeting, and sits there and agrees. So much for society having role models for children of today and tomorrow. I guess you can check off our current CPD superintendent in addition to the other corrupt politicians who want to send the message that drugs are cool and okay. Never thought i would see the morals of society plummet so quickly in the last few years because of our so-called leaders who want to make a few bucks in taxes off of illegal substances. I guess you would have to be on "crack" to vote for this idiots. Not to mention Preckwinkle wants to raise felony theft to higher amount. Let's just legalize everything cause crime and drugs are so fun and cool and "in fashion"!?

I ain't nothin' but a simple man
They call me a redneck I reckon that I am
But there's things going on
That make me mad down to the core.

I have to work like a dog to make ends meet
There's crooked politicians and crime in the street
And I'm madder'n hell and I ain't gonna take it no more.

We tell our kids to just say no
Then some panty waist judge lets a drug dealer go
Slaps him on the wrist and then he turns him back out on the town.

Now if I had my way with people sellin' dope
I'd take a big tall tree and a short piece of rope
I'd hang 'em up high and let 'em swing 'til the sun goes down

Well, you know what's wrong with the world today
People done gone and put their Bible's away
They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land.
As far as I'm concerned there ain't no excuse
For the raping and the killing and the child abuse
And I've got a way to put an end to all that mess

Just take them rascals out in the swamp
Put 'em on their knees and tie 'em to a stump
Let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest. Charlie Daniels 1989
You think things would have gotten better since those lyrics were written 25 years ago. Chicago leads the way in the decline of our nation. Born here and embarrassed to even tell someone where I'm from.
