A Disturbing Proposal

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel is seeking first-ever subpoena power for the Chicago Police Department’s Bureau of Internal Affairs, but a prominent defense attorney said he finds the proposal troubling.

    The proposed ordinance, which was presented to the City Council earlier this week, would strengthen the department’s investigations of alleged misconduct by officers, according to the mayor’s office.

    The Independent Police Review Authority already has the power to issue subpoenas — legal demands — to obtain records and compel people to testify. IPRA investigates the use of excessive force, police shootings in which an officer strikes someone, domestic abuse, deaths in custody and verbal abuse.

    The Bureau of Internal Affairs investigates other allegations of police misconduct, such as criminal activity, substance abuse and rules violations.

    “While CPD can demand cooperation by its members in investigations, it cannot seek documents — like cellphone and employment records — from third parties unless there is a criminal investigation,” said Adam Collins, a mayoral spokesman.
Seems like more than a little bit of overreach on the part of the city.

Remember, these are the same bozos who wouldn't let the Inspector General investigate aldercreatures or issue subpoenas regarding criminal and election law violations by the City Council.

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Since when are the police also the judiciary?

So under this ordinance any political hack boss can file a complaint and have the henchmen at the rat squad violate your rights and look into your personal papers in violation of the Constitution.

You voted repeatedly for socialists, now you got what you voted for. Go knock on more doors for your political masters, slaves.

>>>>> “With everyone wanting the police held more accountable, it would be a tremendous tool for Internal Affairs to have, too,” <<<<<

Oh really?? Now exactly who is this "everyone" that wants police "held more accountable"? Annnnd held more accountable for exactly WHAT! I certainly don't buy that residency crap mentioned.

Alao, I don't think that people like the radical Father Flaky, the not-so Rev's Al and Jesse, president SparkleFarts, left-wing extremist neo-communists who were brainwashed to hate the police and America from the day they could crawl, and the lying relatives of dead fucking Gangbangers -- 'Bangers who are DEAD 'cause they attempted to shoot and or injure police -- count as "everyone". And the media, Ha!...those jagoffs sure as hell aren't 'everyone', they're not even 'anyone'.

Furthermore, the OVER WHELMING MAJORITY of law abiding citizens -- who just want to be able to travel anywhere at anytime without fear of catching a stray bullet from some feral asshole, and want those assholes to receive no mercy from the police when caught -- think that cops today are held pretty goddamn 'accountable' as it is!

So.....Tiny Dancer take your 'subpoena power' and shove it up you ass. Leave the police alone so they can do their fuckin' job!

Aldermen/women and City Council should be immune from subpoenas and investigations at city/county or state level Otherwise unscrupulous political opponents would give them no peace, and they would be unable to do their jobs. They should only be investigated at federal level. Whoever the people elect, they should also completely trust.

Okay, first let me say that, yes, I know you're a troll who posts these comments just to get a rise out of the participants here.

But I'd also like to know your secret formula for doing so. Do you first formulate a normal response, then edit it to say the exact opposite of the normal response? Or do you have a little list of hot-button phrases that you know will incense the readers here and elicit the greatest number of answers?

Is it a school project? A psych experiment? Or just it just somehow gratify you to do this?

So...

In Rahm Emanuel's world, The Bill of Rights does not
apply to Chicago Policemen because they have "conditions
of employment" by virtue of having sworn an oath of office?

Cue:
"If you Cops don't like it, then just quit already.
Thousands of people are lined up to take your
jobs at half the pay and none of the cush benefits
you guys get. And they'll do it better and with none
of your racist and rebellious bellyaching about
"your rights." The public doesn't give a shit about
you guys rights. As it is, you've got too many rights
and protections anyway. We hope Rahm turns all
of you blue suited bums out on the streets because
we're sick and tired of our tax money being wasted."

...Or something like this.
Right?

>Stands back...

The war against The Police and their concerns

Per FoxNews the US Navy Lt. Comdr that shot the Chattanooga terrorists may be facing criminal charges.

The Pentagon and the Navy Investigation Services are looking into charging the career officer because he had a gun in a gun-free zone.

The Dems have gone completely insane.

There are other voices that are beginning to think that gun-free zones may not be such a good idea after all.

That affidavit law regarding complaints against police officers is useless. I am one of eight officers with confidential investigations going against us on a confidential CR#. All charges against all officers were Unfounded or Exonerated. We 8 then sued the complainant who had signed the eight false affidavits. Political pressure was really brought to bear as the complainant was connected. When this FOP regime came in, they stopped funding that lawsuit chalking up another win for the usual democratic machine people.

When I read of PO's going on and on about that bullshit affidavit law I just laugh. The very next successful lawsuit or criminal prosecution for signing a false affidavit will be the first. A person simply will not face any type of penalties for lying against the police. The Courts, the States Attorney, none of them will do anything against anyone for lying against police officers. I had faith in the affidavit law. No more. It is as full of shit as everything else.
