Proof Rahm Lied

...and McCompStat and everyone else had a finger in selling this lie to the public:
  • No doubt, you've heard City Hall, certain aldermen, and the police department itself issue endless statements about Chicago having “more police on the beat” than when Rahm Emanuel took office in 2011.

    Well, that's not true and the police department’s own documents prove it.

Caps dead(?):

"To her right is, uh, Ron, um . . ."

An aide leaned over to help him out: "Holt."

"Holt!" said McCarthy. "From the CAPS office."

It was a telling moment. The Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy office is the one that's supposed to coordinate the department's efforts at community organizing and neighborhood crime prevention—the one whose budget has been cut from $9 million in 2000 to half that this year to nothing in 2013.

Yet McCarthy says that's all part of a new, "revitalized" approach to community policing in Chicago. He says it will put more patrol officers on the beat, empower block clubs to reclaim corners from drug dealers, and reduce gang violence—all without more police officers, which Mayor Rahm Emanuel once promised but McCarthy insists are unnecessary. The city can't afford them either, but McCarthy doesn't talk about that.

The stats from city are interesting. The crime blog that did the map is way off. They have 3 districts gaining the most cops (002, 020, 022).. Lets look at the beat cops for those three districts. 002 has biggest increase because map doesnt count for 2012 merger (but the map counts 019's 2012 merger). So that part of map is a mess and it also relates to 009 and 001 which gained part of 021. Moving on, 020 gained a total 5 beat cops. 022 actually lost 1 beat cop. Forget the amateur hour map and look at the raw data.

Just A citizen here

"According to CWB analysis of Chicago Police Department documents secured via a reader's Freedom Of Information Act filing, Chicago had 491 fewer officers in July of this year than it had in October 2011. Translation: there are 4% fewer cops overall than in 2011.

And the number of officers assigned to districts—the number of cops “on the beat”—has fallen by 674, a loss of nearly 9%. More cops on the beat? Hardly."

-From the CIB blog

So does this mean there are over a thousand less police officers on the street(491 retired & etc.& 674 not actually working on the street)? Wow.

Is there a reason, Rahm and McCarthy have not been arrested and charged with fraud upon the citizens of chicago and conspiracy to commit fraud. No doubt these two clowns continued to pat each other on the back and bold face lie week after week about safety and the number of police patrolling our streets. When they pushed for merging police districts like the new 19th district they promised not to decrease beat cops as part of the consolidation. well the new 19 has been operating with 25-28% percent fewer officers on the streets for the last 2+ years compared to the staffing in the years before Rahm. Lakeview suffered immediate consequences and still suffers from major uptick of violent crimes, burglaries. This serious increase in violent crimes and general mayhem especially at night is clearly the result of lack of police presence and the dept inability to respond even to serious 911 calls promptly due to no available cars. During this same time they were lying about all the above, they were also involved in various schemes to alter the raw crime data and number of police reports and along with major pressure from above to down code certain violent crimes to help give the impression that crime is down. They did this all for their own benefit to remain in office and enrich themselves....that is fraud

backlog problems. no cars to send to "a person with a knife." the job sits for a while...more calls come in....now "man cuts woman with knife". a car finally assigned...now no back up available. There are more "fixed posts" then cars available to answer calls....and the a-team is tying up the air running a name for an a.n.o.v. while this is going on.

Safety Alert: Wait for back up. No superman shit. It can happen to anyone. Be cautious, back each other up. ride on the job to assist and write your other paper later. Stay down if you have to. Get back-up to these units...it could be you next time.

Sergeants should ride 10-4 and handle jobs until more P.O.s are hired or mission teams and fixed posts are disbanded to handle calls.

No post should be "fixed" as it is dangerous because it is predictable. Might as well just park an empty squad car there cause that is no different than having a $80,000/year P.O. sit there and smile.

Target the Shooters....sitting and trying to deter them with fixed posts isn't working. To hell with piss bum arrests. Have all tact teams hunt shooters and associates and scoop them up for anything reasonable.

A.n.o.v.s do not stop bullets when the guy puts it folded into his shirt pocket.

Physical arrests take these people out of the equation.

Open lockups and push physical arrests.

Free advise to save the city we live in.

The nice middle class white people (and folks) of the North Side have been punked by a pandering, hateful and disrespectful little race card playing North Shore Shit-Ass who would rather play games with YOUR safety and steal Police resources FROM YOU to flood the nesting grounds of a catered to constituency, some of whom are riding the Red, Blue and Brown Lines to YOUR neighborhoods because THEY KNOW from where Rahm is stealing Police manpower from.

Just like the old Baseball analogy: "Hit 'em where they ain't!"

You people had better get mad and fight Rahm and his wisenheimer, propeller-head idea people back or you'll be fending for yourselves when even more members of Dude Inc. start showing up and prowling YOUR yards and alleys waiting to catch YOU unaware...

You people are nowhere near as safe as you think you are.

Hell... NO decent person in Chicago is safe.

But you can be your ass that Rahm Emanuel and HIS family sleep like innocents at night while you're waking up at every bump in the night.

We all know that the police adademy is a ghost town these days. Districts are combined, and every one is short manpower. Where can I go to get the straight poop!

I don't disagree with you. Just want to make the point that 002 is showing such an increase because it merged with 021. Also, 002's officers are spread pretty thin themselves because after that merge, that district is pretty huge. Also, they're down quite a bit of officers since the merge.

Only reason 2nd district is up 25% is because they combined district with 21. They counted the officers from 21 as increase in officers.

There was a call in 024 the other day on 2nd watch where a motorcycle vs car occurred. Car fled the scene and motor cycle guy laid on the ground for 45 minutes before car was assigned. Apparently the passing motorists were too busy talking on their cell phones to notice dude laying by the curb. Thankfully he had non life threatening injuries. CPD and CFD are both understaffed. Turns out CFD was called but the nearest ambulance had to be dispatched from Harlem & Irving to East Rogers Park that took 45 minutes to arrive. God help us if a first responder is injured in the line of duty and needs help.

OT: from the Chicago Tribune, Sep 26, 2014
---

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's proposal to change the terms of the drug war by lessening the penalties for low-level possession is getting blowback from the suburbs, with some prosecutors and police chiefs saying it sends an unhelpful message at a time when heroin overdoses are claiming hundreds of lives.

Emanuel said this week that he wants the state legislature to change the possession of 1 gram or less of any controlled substance to a misdemeanor from a Class 4 felony, which can bring prison time and lessen the chances of future employment.

He said that would be a more efficient and compassionate way to handle addiction, and would free police to deal with more serious crimes. But some in suburban law enforcement say they don't agree with the solution, and don't want it forced upon them.

"The north suburbs are seeing a very serious heroin epidemic and an alarming increase in heroin overdose deaths," said Des Plaines police Chief William Kushner, who spent nearly 30 years in the Chicago Police Department. "It's an equal-opportunity killer that does not discriminate, and if we allow any kind of possession of heroin to be a misdemeanor, shame on our society."
---

So if the penalty for small bags of heroin and cocaine is reduced, might this have the effect of increasing the demand for small quantities? And where do many of these users get their supply?

Why on the streets of Chicago!

So Rahm really does care about raising the standard of living on the south and west side! A backhanded way of increasing the minimum wage!

How very clever! Rahm is really concerned about the main business enterprise in the hood. And I thought he didn't care.

Calm down. Nothing is hidden and its no secret.
CLEAR has the total number of sworn officers at a little over 12,000 All you have to do is add up the number of po's,sgts, lts,captains and exempt.
Also read your pension newsletter. As of July 15,2014 there are 12,015 sworn members paying into the pension. Those are the pensions figures and they get audited annually.
Those are the facts.
If you choose to believe all the conspiracy figures go ahead.

Rumor has it Dean Andrews got wind of what was happening and sent a stern e-mail to 016 telling them to knock off asking for help. We're always happy to help as most of our officers live up that way.

So, not only does the city $^$% you out of help according to this map, the department itself wants to %^$# out out of unofficially asking for help, too.

"Because those other crimes can be covered up on paper stats. 30-some years ago Pam Zekman did a series called "Killing Crime on Paper". It showed how crimes in Chicago were constantly being downgraded or UNFOUNDED in order to make good stats. Your Burglary became a Theft, your Theft became a Non-Criminal Lost Property Case. As a new CPD Detective at the time I thought it was great, we were not expected to lie to make stats go down. It is all beng done again. Some crime reports are BS, but many other are being skewed so Rahm and his Hatchetman McCarthy can boast "Crime is down." There is the other great lie.

BTW, even some murders are covered up as Non-Criminal Death Investigations."

Look at the crime lab. It's down to 11 or 12 officers.
Of those only 7 work the street. The other 4 or 5 are " special ones" who don't have to work the street but are allowed to hang out inside.

Hi SCC n Kids. 10 G here. Enjoy the weather. Hawk will be upon us quicker than the ballerina. Nice NFL Sunday in WK 3. Picked up 9 Large. Take that every week. Nice piece of change over the season. But have a lil catching up to do. Not much but learned NEVER chase too quickly. And heard through talk that I hate the Bears and my plays are always against them. Not true. I like the Bears albeit not a huge fan. Make my picks not with the heart. After all Bears scored a TD from Jets one yard line and only gained 1 yard total offense on the "drive". LOL. I digress. Got my plays in early but should have done it sooner with line moving. Took for 10 large Det -1 and the hook over Jets. Lions aint too well disciplined-haven't been for yrs-but VERY talented. And GB -1 and the hook over Bears. Just looking the Bears should be 0-3. NOT a good football team. But good luck bear fans. Always wish all good luck. Let's get on a roll SCC n Kids. Feb will be here before we know it. Luv U guys n Gals!

Before they closed 013, the citizens protested but Rham assured them they wouldn't be affected by police service. Dumb liberals they are. With the combination, 012 lost upwards of 3 beats, they stretched out the beats so big they are over a mile long in every direction.
That's right, 1 fucking beat car to cover all this area. They lost 6 officers a shift. Three missing cars to answer calls. But their police service wasn't affected. lol.

But I don't give a fuck, these people vote Democratic, will vote for Rham again, will vote for another Democrat after that, and when the precinct captain comes along door to door for Democratic signatures, they will sign on the dotted line like dumb fucking sheep. "Would you mind if I put a sign on your lawn?" Sure, go ahead. Then they're scratching their head on the south side wondering why their neighborhood changed. Clearing, Garfield Ridge, Scottsdale, over by Archer Ave, near Comiskey, etc. Adios amigos- D O N E done. Insanely dumb people.

Now, all I have to look forward to when I come home form work is picking up the 1 or 2 Modelo beer cans off my front lawn every Sunday, wonder where the next fence is tagged, look at shag haircuts, listen to "My Son isn't in a gang", gunshots, and circus music at 3 a.m. on a Monday. 6 fucking fiestas going on all at once and see who can be the loudest. Ignorant mother fuckers. Try and shut them down and have an illegal start to recite the United States Constitution to you asking for your warrant to be in their backyard. Unbelievable. 008th district is toast. Eat the shit now. How does it taste?

"I called you over an hour ago." Fuck you, did you vote for the machine? "Yes", well too fucking bad.

Clearing used to be great to raise a family. Middle class to poor white mixed with decent Hispanics who fucking care about their kids not being in a gang and their property. Now burglaries are through the roof, gangs, tagging. The cartels are here. The average south sider has no clue about that.

That's inaccurate. When 002 and 021 were combined there were 422 PO's assigned. Last time I looked we had less than 330. That is a 20% REDUCTION in manpower since the consolidation.

For the last few openings over 20-28 people each period bidding out. 17, 16, 11, 15, 7, 9 are becoming mini 12th districts. Ask yourself why are people bidding out in the masses?

Not true. There are people working on other departments, Federal spots, and positions loosely defined as law-enforcement related, as well as those on loa, paying into the pension to gain additional years of service. Like to know what THOSE numbers are.

Rahm is counting on "Him Self" to quash any terrorist threat directed at Chicago in particular.

If some jihad asshole or a home grown crazy manages to light the wick in Chicago, it's Rahm who will be exposed as a prize asshole because of his efforts to destroy CPD and give the TIF slush fund monies to his campaign contributors.

Of course... If something nasty does go "BOOM!" the Chicago media will spin it as being the fault of The Police...

How Rahm has so far avoided being whacked with the shit-sock of culpability for ANY of his fucked-up policy decisions is an amazing thing to witness...

I am not from the Crime Lab but many years ago I did observe and assist them on projects. Those "special ones" hanging out inside having to catalogue and maintain the chain of custody of evidence, see that the evidence is processed and preparing exhibits for court. I could go on.

Yes, they are special.

You must not care to much for your own safety pal. If your vest is falling apart buy a new one. Vest are only good for about 5 years. Buy one, THAT'S why the city gives us a uniform allowance. You want the city to buy your equipment AND give you money. I don't want go to anymore police funerals. I've been to far too many in my 20 years but if you eat it then its on your own fault.
