More Help?

But....we're up to strength, aren't we? That's what we keep hearing. But the sheriff has police helping out, the ISP has troopers helping out, ATF sent extra agents and now the feebs want to get in on the act:
  • Sneed has learned that the feds plan to dispatch 65 FBI agents to the streets in high-crime areas on the South and West Sides in an all-out battle against gang crime.

    The 65 feds are part of a group of 100 Chicago agents already assigned to curb gang and violent crimes.

    “This is a new tactic the FBI is using in fighting crime,” an FBI spokeswoman said, “by working in a concentrated area and a concentrated time on the street — although the FBI has been working hand in hand and day in and day out with the police department."

    A top police source tells Sneed the FBI agents, who will be working in tandem with the Chicago Police Department, will be assigned to do gang suppression missions on Thursdays and Fridays for at least the next three to four weeks.

    “It’s mind-boggling,” the top police source said. “It’s almost unheard of.”

    “I thought the mayor and the police superintendent had said they don’t need more police on the streets,” the source added.
  • Forty state troopers — dressed in plainclothes and riding alongside Chicago Police officers in unmarked Chicago Police Department vehicles — will start serving fugitive warrants Thursday, under a partnership that could last for 60 days, twice as long as originally planned.

    The troopers will be assigned to overlapping, ten-hour shifts — starting at 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. — in four high crime Chicago Police districts: Englewood, Austin, Calumet and Gresham.

    Sources said the troopers will be housed in an undisclosed suburban motel during a 30-day deployment that could double if the partnership succeeds in getting known criminals off the street.
Great - so now we're paying to house the troopers, too? How much is that costing Illinois taxpayers? How much is being sucked out of the trooper budget for this? How many ISP squad cars could this have bought?

Maybe the federalization of the local police is due to fear of a FOP union contract failure -- the city will have a Obama backup posse in place should something like a sick out occur?

Quite a dog and pony show just in time for the elections.

Jeepers. Looks the the State and Feds are trying their best to make this dickhead mayor look good for election time. Everyone in the country and state has to pay to try and keep a democrat in office. Its the new normal. Disgusting tactics. Just saw a Quinn commercial and it seems he has now lowered the unemployment rate to below where it was before the big crash ! He also balanced the budget. No mention of the millions he passed around to shitbags to get elected. But I am really glad all the low information voters now see that we are a healthy and robust state. What a joke.

In addition to all the previously mentioned personnel, I heard that Andy Frain ushers, in full uniform, will be working jaywalking missions on Thursdays through Sundays on main streets. Anov books will be given to all Andy Frain personnel and they will be empowered to write jaywalking citations to all knuckleheads who cross against the light and walk down the middle of the street.

Well I looked up exactly what the FBI investigates thinking they were out of their jurisdiction.
But yes they do investigate gang crimes
ISP does have "special agents" that also do gang crimes investigation
Which leads me to ask who has the most authority FBI? Then ISP? Then CPD?
Seems to me they walked in and more or less took over

SCC stated: We got this complaint:

...the letter included in the ballot package. It seems as though our representatives at FOP are in a "rush" to get this done and over with. Furthermore, the writer does not hide their support for this contract and even attempts to steer the members to vote yes. That is inappropriate and points should be made stating the positives and the negatives for the members to understand so that we may be able to make a informed decision.

There's a time and a place for this - the newsletter, the website, the meetings, the district/unit visits. In the ballot mailing though? No.

I say it's a valid point. If the FOP wants to insert a letter clearly supporting the contract, they can also state why. The letter itself is inappropriate. Either just encourage the members to vote or don't insert a letter at all.

----> SCC, No offense but these two linked articles on *More Help* are from August. I swear there was threads on them back then too. So I'm a bit confused. Or am I missing something? [wouldn't be the first time ;-)]<----

That being said, is there any update on how much help the Feebs and Troopers have actually been in the month since they've been out there 'cleaning up the streets' of Rahm's violent voter base who made it to a *Wanted List*.

All of Chi's crack journalists have been silent on this -- which would kinda hint that these extra bodies ain't done squat. Otherwise the powers that be would be screaming praise from the rooftops.

Deuce,

This is awesome news! The FBI guys bring a scientific and data driven approach to solving crimes that is extraordinary and world renowned!

Having the extra manpower of very disciplined ISP troopers dedicated getting some of these bad guys with feloney warrants will also help reduce the violence.

Now if we can only get the judges to impose very tough bail restrictions which would include a substantial financial committment, lets say a $2,000,000 D Bond that would be swell!

I think a lot of the younger officers will learn a lot from the FBI guys in terms of street sense, development of confidential sources, advanced street level investigative techniques, and avoiding being sucked into corrupt practices and situations.

The younger aggressive guys will be able to develop personal and professional partnerships with FBI Agents that will strengthen the public's respect for law enforcement and make CPD a better institution. One thing for sure when the hoodlums in Englewood and Fillmore see that they are facing the combined might of the FBI, ISP, and CPD we will see at least a 28% reduction in violent crime!
