Dart Getting In on the Act
Rahm better be keeping an eye on Springfield. Tom Dart is stirring up shit downstate:
- The shooting of Laquan McDonald has one state lawmaker suggesting it’s time for the Chicago Police Department to be “broken up” by putting it under the control of a different entity.
State Rep. LaShawn Ford thinks the office of the Cook County Sheriff should have a greater role in policing the city of Chicago, and possibly even “take over” the department.
Ford thinks putting the authority in the sheriff, an elected office, rather than another appointee of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, may help restore trust in law enforcement within the city.
LaShawn Ford is a moron of the highest order, so you know he didn't come up with this idea himself. So who figured out this crap for Ford? From a tipster:
- A week ago a source in the Sheriff's office spoke of Tom Dart contacting his old pals in the legislature to toss out the idea of him taking over the Chicago Police Department.. We taught it was so far fetched to even think of reporting it.
Well as it turns out, we should known better!!!
Tommy has fucked up the jail beyond all imagination what with his political machinations and cronyism. Lord knows what he'd do to a police department. Never underestimate the cravenness of a Cook County politician.
