The Political Season is Upon Us

  • Chicago mayoral challenger Willie Wilson on Monday tried to jump start his campaign by loaning $1 million to his bid, less than two weeks after Mayor Rahm Emanuel dropped a challenge to his nominating petitions.

    With the news media in tow, Wilson deposited the money at a downtown bank where his campaign fund has an account, then took reporters' questions. The money, he said, will be used to pay for campaign ads starting Tuesday on network and cable TV stations as well as urban radio stations.
And his platform:
  • “We’re going to deal with the closing of these schools, let the community decide how many they want to open back up,” Wilson said. “We want to make sure that’s taken care of. We want to see all the red light cameras out of Chicago.”

    [...] During a wide-ranging news conference, Wilson sounded some of his early campaign themes and showed his affinity for the short quip.

    The challenger said he would get 75 percent of police officers out of their squads and onto the sidewalks, “L” trains and buses to make citizens feel safer and save money on cars and gas. “If a citizen can walk, (get) on the bus, in the cold out there, and the citizen’s paying the police officers, they should be cold too,” Wilson said.

    Wilson also said he would fire Police Supt. Garry McCarthy, the top cop under Emanuel. "This superintendent of police has to go, but the mayor has to go first," he said.
  • Mayoral candidate Ald. Robert Fioretti on Monday said he would hire 500 additional police officers if elected, saying he would cut overtime to help pay for it but offering few specifics on the total cost.

    As part of his "public safety platform" released on his campaign web site, Fioretti also said he would replace "about 500 cops who each year retire or leave the force."

    "In my first year in office I will find the money to hire the new recruits and assign them to neighborhoods as quickly as they can be educated at the Police Academy and effectively trained on the job by experienced sergeants," Fioretti said.
More to come with only a short while until the election. Why are no media outlets running polls? Or are we missing them completely?

What a sad state of affairs this Mayoral Race will be. Not Rahm Emanuel not Bob Fioretti not Willie Wilson....None of them are much good...And what is this???....Emanuel is trying to give away parts of Washington Park or Jackson Park to the University of Chicago to build a Library for Obama. What the heck..let Emanuel keep his mitts off those parks..he doesn't own them..the citizens do. And the U of C has trillions of dollars to build buildings...let them buy some of the property around them that is vacant and vandal filled not those beautiful parks and gorgeous field houses built a hundred or so years ago.
Its like a 'Smash and Grab' of a different sort but Land Grab no less. Go away Rahm!!!!

“If a citizen can walk, (get) on the bus, in the cold out there, and the citizen’s paying the police officers, they should be cold too,” Wilson said.


I'll agree to this proposal when it can be shown that at least 75% of the citizens of Chicago are gainfully employed, thereby paying their fair share of taxes, which in turn a portion thereof would trickle down to funding law enforcement salaries.

Better yet, I offer a counter-proposal: if a citizen can collect any form of government assistance/entitlement, that same citizen can pass a monthly drug test in order to remain eligible for that taxpayer-funded assistance.

Otherwise, mayoral hopeful Willie Wilson and his non-contributing constituency can blow me. I'll get out of my police car for THAT.

Fioretti has publically stated that he believes police and fire pensions should be guaranteed and not diminished. He is in print saying that we are undermanned and he would hire more POs, also good for our pensions.

Mayor Emmanuel ran and continues to state that we do not deserve the pension WE have been funding from the day we took our jobs. Any officer that is not behind Fioretti is paying attention. Talk to your family, talk to your friends. Fioretti is good for Chicago, too. Chicago is in a downward spiral, Rahm and Daley put us there.

That being said, if there is a runoff I will vote for anybody that is not named Rahm Emmanuel. That means I will vote for the devil before I vote for Rahm. Staying home and not voting is the same as voting for Rahm.

No chance for either of these knuckleheads. 75% on foot patrol, really? What a waste of oxygen. I'm for the additional hiring of police for the overall benefit of our department (although the overtime has been great) but trained by experienced Sergeants? That's what FTO's are for. Neither of these two has a clue about our profession and probably even lower qualifications for mayor. But then again when was the last competent mayor we have had?

Maybe Willie needs to drop some money at the home of his Baby Mama! Apparently he stiffed his Love Child for years. The Madonna and now grown Child appeared on TV once, then the Media decided to drop any further coverage. It seems that in the early days of developing his fortune, Willie owned a couple of McDonald restaurants and this Baby Mama was an employee that he impregnated and abandoned. No Big Thang in Da Hood.

Stupid. 75%? Obviously this guy has no idea what it takes to be the police. Sure it's one thing if you're assigned the window detail. But wtf are we supposed to do after we finish one burglary call at say 2400 west whatever, then we get a gun call at 3600 west whatever. We all gonna be track stars now and sprint our asses there? Morons. Cars are necessary you idiots. We are cold, because we do traffic stops and goto calls all the time. Maybe we could walk to jobs if you proposed changing the beats to a few blocks, but then you'd have to hire 20000 more cops. This isn't New York you fucking idiot. Chicago is spread the fuck out.

You're barking up the wrong tree. This is not the place to whine.
The reason you don't see the popo on the CTA is that the city does not authorize the manpower to adequately cover any/all of Chicago's mass transit.
Now go call your alderman and the mayors office and repeat your complaint to them and see what happens and changes.

You know I sent Rahm-bo a report by a Berkely Professor from 1985 that outlines how the more police delegitimizes a Police department, the professor constantly stated Chicago in the report. Why did I write this? Cause I am tired of seeing dumbass cops ask folks "What do you want us to do?" I am a PO. have been for nearly 6 years. If you want to delegitimize your profession, Ask "what do you want us to do?" the answer is "dumbass, do your job"

I suppose this Mr. Wilson thinks that dope peddlers and hookers can stand on a corner for eight, ten or twelve hours a day or night why can't cops.

This Mr. Wilson should learn some history from a certain Mr. Orlando W. Wilson.

In the days before Radio Motor Patrol Chicago was smaller geographically and had a police "prescient" station in every neighborhood within walking distance. The prescient boundaries were almost the same as the political ward boundaries and the control was very obvious. There were dormitories in the stations and officers were required to sleep at the station one night out of three. The station Captain and his family lived on the top floor.

NYPD and LAPD have dormitories in their stations but they do not have a residency rule.

I don’t think we are going to go back to that; although I still have my Cal Box Key if we do.

Most (but not all) sergeants don't do anything except ride your ass and/or simply log you. If not mistaken, they get 30 minutes a day in OT *EVERY* single day they work, for simply wearing chevrons. Must be nice! Why didn't City go after this "benefit" instead of screwing over PO's with some lousy couple % raise. But wait, I forgot, the people at the bottom make the least in this Department pulling their weight; while at the top, who make the most, doing the least. Plus take home cars, free gas. Makes, sense, huh! Well it must be good for Chicago. Wink Wink. As far as this mayor's race: 2 thoughts. First: Rahm has the most ridiculous BLING BLING $$$ and will win by buying his votes--common friggin' sense. Second: Just like the morons who voted for our contract will be the same ones that vote for Rahm saying we could get worse and other nonsense scare tactics, because they are so in fear of their shadows and have no backbone needing money for the deposit on their new bling Ghetto Ride or to gamble it all away in a Hammond casino. If you give a shit about your family, your bank account, your retirement, your safety, and your partner, YOURSELF---please I beg of you to Vote for ANYONE but Rahm. Look in a mirror and be proud for once.

"Fioretti takes a different tack: Mayoral candidate Ald. Robert Fioretti on Monday said he would hire 500 additional police officers if elected, saying he would cut overtime to help pay for it but offering few specifics on the total cost."
---


If I am elected Mayor I will offer a $10 million dollar reward for information that will prove corruption in the leasing of City Assets, namely the Chicago Skyway, Parking Garages and the parking meters.

Then I will file a whistle blower lawsuit against the entities with that proof and will seek to get the various leasing contracts voided and the assets returned to the City and a whistle blower settlement with which I will hire new police officers and fund pensions.

Then when I win the Federal Suit I will turn over evidence and transcripts to the US Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois in the hopes some political scum gets indicted.

Those assets should bring the City around $500 million of additional income per year. I will continue to hire LAZ to manage and administer the parking meters except the revenue goes into the City coffers and the City will no longer have to pay fees for working on their own streets or holding a street fair.

Also I will change the name of Maggie Daley Park to Jane Byrne Park and invite the Byrne Family to the re-dedication. The Maggie Daley signs go right in some Mexican scrappers F150 pickup truck for a trip to the recyclers.

If your statement is true, then you are the buffoon. Vote for the best candidate. That is all you can hope for.

It's a lot cheaper for Fioretti to say he will hire 500 more CPD than to actually hire them (in the event he wins the election).

- someone with experience of having him as alderman

Wilson is ignorant about politics. He claimed Rahm was racist for challenging his signatures, Most candidates challenge their opponents signatures, that is the first step in defeating them.

Since our Union has not said on who to support. I would like to see who SCC would support or a recommendation by the writers to SCC.

1/06/2015 03:25:00 PM

IKD about SCC...

But I'd prefer that guy on the bike that posts here from time to time than anyone else that's running.

He seems decent enough (for a revenue ticket writer)...

hey, they proclaimed doom and gloom when Harold Washington won. The guy was all right. I got hired under Harold. I couldn't get hired under Daley or Bilandic.

Wilson does not know politics and Rahm must not know politics well, either because he stopped challenging Wilson's signatures when Wilson falsely claimed "racism." That is two idiots running for mayor.

Willie Wilson is NO Harold Washington. He's more like Forbes of Cleveland.
