Another Quarter Billion

  • A potential year-end budget shortfall has forced Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration to borrow $220 million in yet another sign of the city's precarious pension funding status.

    The city drew the money down from its $900 million line of short-term credit, which is akin to putting the tab on a credit card. The loan carries an interest rate of about 3 percent.

    The money is not due to police and fire pension funds until the end of the year. But the city had to borrow the money to meet a March 1 deadline for having the cash in its treasury, Budget Director Alexandra Holt said. "State law requires that we deposit the money with the treasurer to demonstrate we have the money available if it's needed," she said.

    The city is required to raise enough money through property taxes to make the police and fire pension contributions, which increased dramatically this year, to start closing a combined $12.2 billion shortfall in the two pension funds. If the city doesn't expect to raise enough from property taxes, it must deposit the anticipated shortfall by March 1.
But hey, Rahm can keep announcing "rails to trails" at how many millions of dollars per mile of prime mugging real estate?

There's plenty of money in the TIFs what a scam and should be returned to the general fund and used for debits. But then no sweetheart deals and all the kickbacks to our wonderful politicians.

At what point does someone acknowledge that Rahm has failed and should be removed if he refuses to quit on his own? Aldermen signed onto his budget in their typical Rubber Stamp mode, as they did for Stumble-Mumble Daley, but this is a way different day and game! Rahm is gone next election. Any thing he promises cannot be guaranteed. Ask the aldermen who supported his last budget in exchange for more cops in their Ward. Ald. Tunney, did you get those cops? Some mechanism has to be put into play to stop and control Emanuel. He is spending beyond his Shelf Life, just as Daley did with his 90 year contract on the parking meters. How did that work out for us who remained after he left? This is an opportunity for the City Council to emerge as an Independent Body, a "Real" legislative entity. Or they can continue to be Flunkies and Hacks. What will it be? Baby "G"

This task force didnt come to Chicago for the pizza and you can bet they have a ACLU Liason. After all Rahm likes his job and he saw what happened to his prosecutor. Its not like anyone protests over people getting shot.

How about you go fuck yourself? Maybe you were hired at a later age, but, some of us will have put in the maximum number of years by our early to mid 50's. Some people won't even have the age to retire at the 29 and a day mark. I for one will not be physically able do this job into my mid 50's. Due to car crashes, surgically repaired joints caused by injuries from performing my duties, and other bodily damage that has caused my body to deteriorate faster than those in an office type setting (house mouse). Our union had fought hard to compress the last 3 years and move the retirement time from 32 years and a day to 29 years and a day. If you want to give that up...feel free to stay. I, and the vast majority of the officers like me, will leave when we are allowed to. You are a selfish prick and are probably a supervisor who was once a career inside person.

You want to know why the city is broke, I'll tell yea. In the 015th district they have the radio room and the Sgt.'s. office next to each other, fine. The Sgt.'s office is larger in size then the radio room. The radio room is ample size for a Sgt.'s office, they're really not in the office that much anyway. So the geniuses decided to knock out a wall in the radio room to make it larger to accommodate the new body camera equipment which in turn will make the Sgt.'s office smaller. Why not just switch the rooms? Maybe you might have to rewire some things and screw some brackets into the wall. But to knock out a wall and all the other things that go along with that to make a smaller room larger and a larger room smaller that are right next to each other. They say it should take 3 weeks, I'm going with the over on this one.

Nice article (sarc).
But the funny thing is, that nowhere is it mentioned, nor is it ever for some odd reason (more sarc), that the entire **Budget Crisis** is solely due to Mayor Shortshanks not paying into the Pension Funds when he was required to, using the money for numerous Vote Buying Schemes.

Once King Richie II, aka: 'Richie The Brainless' got away with it the first year the ground-rules were set, he could keep spending Pension Funds on further Vote Buying Schemes. And on it went, year after year after year. Continuing with the full knowledge and approval of the City Council.

It also went on with the full knowledge of *our* intrepid media. I read more than one article about what Daley what doing with the funds, or not doing, and there wasn't one word of criticism on how that would effect future funding and increased taxing.

It's just too bad that there's no way to make Daley legally responsible for his blatant disregard of his fiduciary duty as mayor. If it wasn't criminal, it sure as hell came close 'cause it wasn't done by accident.

It is a shame that some people still believe this. Even the teacher's union gave up on this fantasy. There is not near enough money in that fund to keep Chicago from sinking even faster. Property taxes must be raised and raised now to save these funds. The tax base in this state is dwindling. Independent auditors have looked at this town's finances and agree. The police pension fund will be insolvent in 6-8 years unless it receives mass amount of cash.

Oh for cryin' out loud!
You, AGAIN?

There must've been some special jag-off juice
added to the municipal water supply that affects
people's judgement in this regard.

Why has there been this ongoing fixation in Chicago
with, "Make Chicago Cops work longer than their
big city peers before we allow them to get a pension?

But every few years, the media was running:
"Ugh! Why are you Chicago Coppers always
a bunch of old, crotchety, gray-beards still
hanging around in your 60's? You guys
disgust us! Retire already!"

Truth be told, no man in his mid 50's has any real business
still being on the streets in this savage-assed city.

Too much risk and the way the city has been playing lately
regarding IODs/recurrence of IODs, (especially for older PO's)
they've been denying IODs and forcing injured Officers to burn
medical time.

"Sorry if you blew out your knee getting out of the squad
but your IOD is denied because you weren't in the performance
of a "Police Duty," but merely "at work." You can appeal and we
can still deny. Sucks to be you. Enjoy surgery and rehab on the
same knee that we generously covered as an IOD fifteen years ago.

With Love,
Ed Burke
Chairman - Finance Committee."

What is it about this job that's still
attractive in light of this nonsense?

They're telling you they will NOT
hold up their end of the bargain.

CHICAGO (Reuters) - The Illinois Supreme Court on Thursday will release its ruling on the constitutionality of a 2014 state law aimed at boosting funding for two of Chicago's pension funds, according to a court spokeswoman.

In oral arguments before the court in November, Chicago asserted the law affecting its municipal and laborers' retirement systems actually benefited workers and retirees by taking steps to avoid insolvency for the funds.

The state law required the city and affected workers to increase their pension contributions and replaced an automatic 3 percent annual cost-of-living increase for retirees with one tied to inflation. The increase would be skipped in some years.

Without reforms, Chicago warned that the two funds would run out of money within 10 to 13 years.

City unions and retirees that filed challenges to the 2014 law contended Chicago merely wished to avoid paying for benefits promised to its workers, in violation of the state constitution's pension protection clause.

Last May, the supreme court found a 2013 law that reduced retirement benefits to ease Illinois' $111 billion unfunded liability in its five pension funds violated a state constitutional provision protecting public sector workers' pensions.

this just in...from our interim...

As part of our efforts to work cooperatively with the US Department of Justice in its "pattern and practices" investigation, and pursuant to their direction, Interim Superintendent Escalante would like to remind all personnel, that all documents, forms, reports and data created by Department members in the course of official Department business are to be retained permanently, regardless of any prior established retention schedule.

This is to include any document with a CPD form number, any outside agency form prepared by the Department, any internal record or log which references a CPD form or document (eg. a running log of CL/SPAR investigations), any document used on a regular or recurring basis (eg. the District Daily Watch Assignment sheet), any "to/from/subject" report, digital source data for any of the above (this includes the suspension of any automatic electronically stored data deletion protocols).



So the contract be damned. The retention schedule said that certain files past 7 years would be destroyed but now bc they failed to uphold the contract, the DOJ wants those files too

In politics, building new roads, buildings or those silly bike lanes and Maggie Daley Parks keeps the bond guys, bankers, architects, unions and contractors making more money. That flow of money means more political contributions from all of these stakeholders going back to the politicians who are approving this deficit spending. Remember the $1B Build Illinois pushed through by former felon governor Ryan? I believe that is when the State stopped making their full pension contributions and diverted those funds that should come to the pension funds to the builder cabal.

Making pension payments brings in no money for the politicians! It's this corrupt system that allows the City and State to spend themselves into bankruptcy.

quid pro quo for the people who funded his mayoral
campaigns and to make the city "broke" so he can
have air and opportunity to make his case that
Police and Fire pensions need to be reneged on
And busted out...

Alderfools ain't worried like Policemen are...

How about raise the minimum and maximum retirement age? 57 for a minimum and 67 for a maximum.

3/22/2016 06:20:00 AM


How about you go fuck yourself? Maybe you were hired at a later age, but, some of us will have put in the maximum number of years by our early to mid 50's. Some people won't even have the age to retire at the 29 and a day mark. I for one will not be physically able do this job into my mid 50's. Due to car crashes, surgically repaired joints caused by injuries from performing my duties, and other bodily damage that has caused my body to deteriorate faster than those in an office type setting (house mouse). Our union had fought hard to compress the last 3 years and move the retirement time from 32 years and a day to 29 years and a day. If you want to give that up...feel free to stay. I, and the vast majority of the officers like me, will leave when we are allowed to. You are a selfish prick and are probably a supervisor who was once a career inside person.

Support This Emerging Effort - Read and Know

Saw this item on Linked in earlier today in Law Enforcement: Tactics, Technology and Training Section. Also article on line - see "The Blaze".

H.R. 4760--"BLUE LIVES MATTER Act" which is a bill to make an attack on a police officer a federal hate crime. Interesting switch on things if proposal gathers steam and becomes law. Would give DOJ/FBI and federal prosecutors something more to concern themselves with other than ride-a-longs, reviewing dash cam video's and SIR's. Also if it became federal law, offenders would be prosecuted in federal court NOT in our county court system.

Has the potential to be a political question for our senators and congressional folks running for office in November. Maybe a question to ask those running for local State's Attorney's office too. Let's see were they all stand publicly on the issue. I'm sure they'll all have our 6 covered (LOL).

The big problem is that Democrats in the past mandated higher pensions for the Police union without making any provisions whatever to pay for it, all in order to assure the Police Union would vote for the Dems. Regardless of what tricks they try to pull in the future, it will take nothing less than a miracle to collect enough money to ever honor this debt as long as Dems are in charge of Illinois. The teacher's union gets 90 cents of ever property tax dollar already. Where is your money going to come from, the federal government? They'll only give you some of what they already stole from you. Take money out of one pocket and put it in the other.

You have to face the fact that you've been lied to. Sucking the life out of the average home owner in higher property taxes or bogus fines is not going to make it, as anyone with any resources at all will just say fcuk it and move out, leaving nothing but the poorest. We're not talking about millionaires here; we're talking about Average Joes who work from 9 to 5 just like you do.

The welfare state does nothing but destroy economies. Look at the Venezuelans: up until recently they were very wealthy. After they voted the socialists into power they've had to stand in line for toilet paper. Socialism doesn't work; it's b*llsh*t. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Obama's a socialist; Rahm's a socialist; Hillary's a socialist.

Vote for politicians that believe in the free market, and America can once again generate more than enough money to honor its commitments.

Yeah because everyone wants a 67 year old geriatric with a cane showing up when they call for help. This job isn't like other jobs sitting in an office and there's not enough "inside" jobs to go around for every old timer. You're either in your 20's, not a cop, or both. Even 63 is pushing it in my opinion. Most coppers don't even live much past 63 considering police work isn't exactly conducive to good health. Get off the blog with that 67 nonsense.

The TIF funds have an excess of 1.7 Billion ON ACCOUNT as of 2009 (latest data on the city website.) Last year was the 1st year that the money going into the TIF funds exceeded the money going into the general fund. Dump the TIFs and this problem will get manageable. Besides state law limits what TIFs can be used for...and it ain't building warehouses and condo developments by/for the connected few.

It is a shame that some people still believe this. Even the teacher's union gave up on this fantasy. There is not near enough money in that fund to keep Chicago from sinking even faster. Property taxes must be raised and raised now to save these funds. The tax base in this state is dwindling. Independent auditors have looked at this town's finances and agree. The police pension fund will be insolvent in 6-8 years unless it receives mass amount of cash.

Nice article (sarc).
But the funny thing is, that nowhere is it mentioned, nor is it ever for some odd reason (more sarc), that the entire **Budget Crisis** is solely due to Mayor Shortshanks not paying into the Pension Funds when he was required to, using the money for numerous Vote Buying Schemes.

Once King Richie II, aka: 'Richie The Brainless' got away with it the first year the ground-rules were set, he could keep spending Pension Funds on further Vote Buying Schemes. And on it went, year after year after year. Continuing with the full knowledge and approval of the City Council.

It also went on with the full knowledge of *our* intrepid media. I read more than one article about what Daley what doing with the funds, or not doing, and there wasn't one word of criticism on how that would effect future funding and increased taxing.

It's just too bad that there's no way to make Daley legally responsible for his blatant disregard of his fiduciary duty as mayor. If it wasn't criminal, it sure as hell came close 'cause it wasn't done by accident.
************************************************************************************
Maybe you could go to the Pension Board website and look to see if the city has ever missed a payment. Hint, hint-they have not other than the 29 million the FOP somehow allowed about 25 years ago. It is fairly easy to find on the Internet. What needs to be done, if we are to be responsible, is to increase the yearly contribution from members to at least `12 percent and the city's commensurate with that.

Yes, this from the alderman to seems to have violated all of the local ordinances in building his fortress in his ward and then got a substantial property tax break on this new construction. He lives like a king, has a city car and police drivers. And, he manages over 100 million in city funds for compensation and has been able to shelter it from public scrutiny . No wonder Rahm fell into line and backed the alderman. You might no like Rahm, but when you honestly look at the other people running, there was no better, and in fact, much worse.

There aren't enough cars with the racks in them in order to use them let alone enough cars for us to use them. 3.

What needs to be done, if we are to be responsible, is to increase the yearly contribution from members to at least `12 percent and the city's commensurate with that.

Maybe you should re-check your facts. The FoP forgiveness was when Donohue was the Fop president. So it was not 25 years ago more like 12 years ago. Also ask Marriem Santos about King Richie. As soon as he became mayor he had is eyes on the pensions. He tried to pass legislation to tap into the pension funds, but thanks to Marriem Santos he was unable to because she was able to block him from doing that. So what does your King Richie do, he has her indicted on some trumped up charges and walla, King Richie is off to the races with our Pensions funds.

Sure the city put money into the pension fund, but they always played an end around and put in the minimum amount they could. They also used some old rule on the books to take pension holidays because of the big short the phoney housing market created.

Before King Ritchie the politicians were unable to use the pension money. The money was off limits. But, we all know what King Richie wants he gets. So Santos go to jail and Richie steals the pensions.

The ironic part about this is back in the 70's the mobsters did this with Teamster pension money and a few of them got caught and indicted. But, King Richie starts the same scam and all he did was enrich all of the connected people and himself and his theiving famly AKA Vanecko, son Patrick, Mrs. Conroy and few others. Shit this crooked family was even able to get away with murder in the public eye.

So before you accuse some one of fact checking maybe you should do your fact checking first. Also, you are probably one of the crooks that benefitted from the royal family and their crooked ways, so of course you think you earned it, but actually King Richie just stole it for you.

Market share. It's called market share. Chicago casino will take gamblers from Rivers in Des Plaines, which, incidentally, wins over 1 million every day of the year. Chicago casino would also draw gamblers from Horseshoe in Hammond another hugely profitable casino winning somewhere in the neighborhood of one million every day.

I've read three different responses here, bitching about being hardworking detectives and how the o.p. doesn't know what they're talking about.

Dear detectives - this post wasn't directed at you or at how hard you do or don't work! Clearly it's about the OFFENDERS, the FREELOADERS, having to go to work and about the OFFENDER-FREELOADERS having 'idle hands' (resulting in more homicides, and more crime in general).

You claim to be detectives, but you took offense at something that wasn't even directed at you.
