More CompStat Questions
Going over yesterday's top post, a number of commentators mentioned this:
- 002nd District Commander T Williams proves to all in attendance at COMPSTAT this a.m. that the Burger Queen was not the dumbest Commander ever. Paraphrasing the exchange.
Tracy: "Go on to the next shooting".
Williams: "I have to admit, this is a murder that we should have prevented! We failed. My officers failed to stop this.
Um, really? As we've stated here and many other places (namely the bar....Shirley Temples for everyone! We swear!), if someone needs to get killed, the killers are going to find a way to kill that person. Step one usually involves picking a spot where the police aren't, which in Chicago means you've just increased your chances of getting away with it by nearly 80%.
More interesting would be a couple plaintiff attorneys we'd like to introduce Commander Williams to who would just LOVE to get that statement on the stand under oath.
- So, former-Commander Williams....what's that? Oh, sorry, Twice-demoted-former-Commander Willams, you're saying the agent of the City of Chicago, namely the Chicago Police Department, who "meritoriously" promoted you how many times again? You, as a duly appointed leader of that Department were able to prevent this homici...sorry, "killing," by what means again? And you failed to do so?
Your Honor, we'd like to enter for a Directed Verdict against the plaintiffs Williams, McCarthy, Emanuel, the Chicago Police Department and the City of Chicago. $100 million would do nicely, thank you.
And this moron made it twice.
