Now the Black Caucus is Pissed

  • Members of the City Council’s Black Caucus threatened Thursday to withhold their votes to ratify Chicago’s next police superintendent if they’re not allowed to question all three finalists before Mayor Rahm Emanuel makes his pick.

    Normally aldermen get to question and confirm the new superintendent only after the mayor makes his pick. But Ald. Roderick Sawyer (6th), chairman of the City Council’s Black Caucus, said these are not normal times.
They aren't normal? And here we were thinking it was:
  • As of Thursday, 132 murders, nearly double last year;
  • 111 of them unsolved;
  • 32 innies and 100 outies;
And the racial breakdown as follows:
  • Asian - 1
  • Black - 95
  • Black Hispanic - 1
  • White - 6
  • White Hispanic - 29
None of those numbers are "spin" - those are cold hard facts. Seems perfectly normal, but you go right on and tell us when the body count reaches "normal" there Roderick.

Mental Morons leading the parade. What the hell do these Alderman think they are doing? The world is burning and dummies want to spread the burn. All they are doing is looking to be the Clout...and to hell with innocents being killed & maimed. Get the hook. If this is how Alderman think...get rid of them...take it down from 50 Alderman to 25 Alderman. Funny as hell....all of the past Democratic foolery has come home to roost....the joke is on the Politicians. More to come if they keep going against right and taking wrong. I feel sorry for Rham....he volunteered to straighten out the finances and it is back-firing. Where are the Daley Pals when you want them.

Rahm is beside himself...

The formerly obedient, subservient, shucky-jivey
members of the Black Caucus who used to be content
with cutting each other's hearts out through one another's
backs fighting for the crumbs Rahm let fall off his table,
are as nearly in full blown rebellion as those greedy, selfish
Cops...

Heh!

We wanna see if Rahm is going to "stick it in their ear,"
like he's doing The Police.

Wow, Rahm!
It looks like your slaves
are leaving the Chicago
Progressive Liberal Democrat plantation.

"🎶 How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
once they've seen gay Pareee! 🎶"

Perfect.

Rahm left standing there with a whip and having
no more willing backs to lay it on.

Bet his propeller-head polling & focus group whiz kids
NEVER saw THIS shit-show jump the curb and run their
nasty North Shore silver-spoon, crouching classist/hidden bigot
asses over.

Oh yeah...
There are those in your insular circle who say you m/fers
are lousy with entitlement, insufferable and just plain nasty
toward those who aren't you. Just like Rahm. Go figure...

Oh wait...
Rahm still has The Police to beat on and malign,
thanks to the new owners of CPD, the ACLU and #blm and the feds.

The city you see is the city THEY want.

Police like you have no friends.

No help is coming from anywhere
anytime soon...

"The Police are the problem in Chicago.
Once we fix THEM, everything else will
fall in place..."

Oh yeah?
Just y'all wait until
The 2016 Summer Kill-a-thon.

Drop a report.

Oversee the corpse removal.

Whistle for CFD to hose the
brains, blood, teeth and shit
off the sidewalk.

Sayin' nothin' to nobody
and lovin' it.

The Police
didn't break it, The Police
can't fix it.

Rollin' to the next one...
Police intentionally tied in knots
in this town so why even stress
about it?

Oh yeah...
It's fun watching Rahm's hairline slowly
burn backwards toward his ears.

Why nothing about the IL Supreme Court ruling from yesterday?

Doesn't this decision set a precedent for our diminished benefits?? Especially the outrageous increase to retiree health care for officers who want to retire prior to 55! Family premiums went from $800/month to almost $2300/month in the last 3 years! If that's not considered in the category of "significantly diminished promised benefits" I don't know what is! This needs to be addressed quick! Because we all know 55 insurance option will gone probably on the next contract....

Those in the know, please explain.

3/25/2016 04:13:00 PM

Well this is simple. You were never promised (negotiated in a contract) healthcare if you retired before you at 55. Health insurance in retirement is a negotiated contract issue not a pension benefit. Nowhere in the pension code does it state you'll receive healthcare for life, therefor it can not be a "deminishment" of said benefit. The contract between the city and police and your pension are two separate items.

How can aldermen make a decision when they have no clue what a PO goes through out on the street. What they should be looking at is the generations of disrespect that the have faced the police, the very people that sit on the council have been taught to hate the police by there single parent and continue with that lack of respect today. There is no respect for law and order in the black community and therefore none should be given. Teach your children how to respect authority and than maybe you have come up with a solution to your problem until than keep killing each other and blame the police you are good at that.

Black caucus,latino caucus, not racist but man if you said "White caucus" the media would fly with that the white guilt morons would chime in also, they chime in because they don't live near this crime infested city, they have no idea how a thug acts. We have balck history month, black beauty contests,black tv channels enough of the racism, strangely aldermen answer this question why is it 99% of lawyers representing your people are shall i say it "white?" Or why is it many doctors 90+ percent are "non-black!" You talk a stupid game, why not support your professionals? Your really getting on people that pay taxes last nerve!

lastly no matter who the boss is do you really believe in your fantasy world coppers would ever again jeopardize themselves? Here you go so far:

*ipra reopening "selected" closed shooting cases on chicago officers (If you have clout don't worry you will be ok"

*DOJ everywhere

*Insane retired black coppers stirring the pot

*IAD beefed up

*Media digging up ever squirrel hole

*Rahm and you yes you aldermen throwing police into the mixer to try and indict them

Much more that is just for openers and you want us to be proactive now that-hilarious, how about aldermen experiment you all have aldermatic gold badges, you could partner up with our gold badge club and show the "community" your shiny gold badges and let us see how we are supposed to interact with the mayhem induced "your peoples!"

Believe I just heard now on news radio that police are asking CTU not to hold their protest-everything demonstration April 1. (From the list of groups we saw involved, it's far beyond being a "teacher's strike")

Considering the terrible attacks in Brussels and the threat of more, it probably never entered the minds of the me-me-me crowd that limited police manpower could be better utilized patrolling public transportation, key points, etc. rather than having to drag a bunch of screaming meemies off the expressway again...

In the past 2 weeks at least 3 police officers have been shot, 3 police officers have been shot at with none of these 3 returning fire, one attacked with a baseball bat and absolutely no outrage from the public, politicians, or our paid representatives in our union. Hello Fop anyone home? Time to get up and make yourself heard. We have been hearing you like to work behind the scenes. Do you see where that method has gotten us. We are being treated like dogs. Why don't you call a press conference and inform the public it is illegal to resist arrest. Everyone of these so called controversial encounters with the police involved an active resister and could have been avoided if they did not resist. Inform the public that crime is up because police are second guessing themselves on what is allowed and what isn't. Inform the public we will not tolerate hate against our members. We will not tolerate violence against our members. Simply put Fop needs to stand up for its members. Fop shouldn't have to be told to do this, it should be a natural reaction, but not with this regime. Completely, Utterly Embarrassing!

Some goof from U of C babbles about the "commodification of violence" and there's a 1 sentence reference to "reform from within," yet, many comments about distrust of the police.

The only solution is to raise the rents or demolish the buildings on the south and west sides, forcing the inhabitants to leave Chicago.

Redevelop these areas with an eye towards attracting tech savvy, blue state professional types and wealthy homosexuals.

Think marinas, restaurants, bars, boutiques.

Of course, this is just a pipe dream. Rahm has EXEMPTED these areas from the big property tax increase in order to keep his plantation running.

Have the A.C.L.U., the local news networks, and the Sun Times pick the new superintendent.

They are running this Police Dept.

Let them pick it's new figure head.

The Aldercreatures are just beating their collective chests because Rahm is at a weak point.

A year ago they would have been sitting on their hands waiting for marching orders.

We weren't impressed then, we aren't impressed now.

Understand before you type. The court said they cannot be diminished not impaired BUT can be altered through collective bargaining...........So if the union agrees to it then it would be CONTRACTUALLY enforceable just like 55 and out can not be taken away from those who retire before June 17. Its a contract

If the pic by Emanuel is Eddie Johnson it means two things--one, that this city is not going to be held hostage by Aldermen and Ministers and two, from not knowing him personally, just from reading here, Officer Johnson sounds like the right selection. God help us, the CPD, Citizens and Tourists needs Rham to get it right. This might be the best step forward.

Eddie Johnson or George S Patton as long as Rahm is mayor we are fucked.

Now if Trump is elected, and brings in a big bunch of Federal auditors and investigates the books, WHOOOOO then we got a real chance.

I have been watching the CNN series Race for the White House. Excellent program and it exposed a lot of the dirty tricks used behind the scenes by famous politicians many thought were shining examples of honesty and integrity.

The best thing that Trump could do is to have Poll Watchers/Investigators in every prescient to prevent Zombie Apocalypse Voting.

Hey asshole. Once you retire you are not under any contract. You are no longer an employee. No more rules, suspensions or anyone telling you what to do. The pension is your contract you have fulfilled it and they are required NOT TO DIMINISH IT says the state Supreme Court. Learn how to read, fool! FOP does not negotiate and has no power to negotiate for the retirees that's why they had to hire their own law firm to defend the current code. Once you retire you got itL. Now if the politicians and the unions can agree to change the pension for you youngen who have not yet retired they will fuck you good. They did on Social Security thanks to the Democrates. Who saved social security for them selves by the way so guys like Daley, Durbin, Madigan, Cullerton will get both Social Security and government pensions and in some case 2 and 3 pensions like Lil Richie is getting now and Dickie Durbin the Turban and his wife are collecting over 50,000 a year in Social Security, right now as they both collect full pay checks. Him from the senate and her from a lobbying business that should be illegal for obvious reasons.

---------------------------

First, there is nothing to substantiate the original commenters statement.

Secondly, the person may be a troll but actually is not stupid because the key reference has to do with retired P.O's.

You missed the point, which would be going FORWARD.

Currently there are two classes of retired officers with regards to COLA. Those of us who were born prior to 01 Jan 1955 and receive a 3% non-compounded COLA.

Those born after that date, though retired in good standing, DO NOT receive a COLA.

For them to get a COLA, Springfield has to vote it into law.

Therefore, the only way rahm could be involved in that process, would be only be through lobbying efforts. Doubtful that he would have success in that endeavor, given the current state of affairs in Illinois.

Do your homework before you give a lecture.

You are correct that after age SIXTY he would get 1.5% after having been retired for TEN years versus the full 3% he would have been eligible for had he been born before 1955. My partner retired at the age of 50. Do the math of not receiving 3% for ten years versus starting at 1.5% 10 years later. You seem to have missed my argument. For what it's worth, I don,t stoop to the juvenile name calling that you have done in your two posts. I hope you are as happy with your 1.5% as I am with my 3%. Again, you missed the whole point of my comment. Maybe a English comprehension 100 class is in order for you?

Rahm , when will you save tax payers some money . Divide city into four areas divided equally with population , new election 3 alderman per area , if necessary , you are tie breaker . City would save $38,000,000 the first year . Inspector General & Feds could really investigate corrupt alderman . It is time for an efficient city government . Citizens will respect you for this change .
Good pick in the new Superintendent .

Maybe just maybe CPD can be respected again, it starts at the top, rahm show us you care fully fund the police pension now,and if the teachers strike no loss start interviewing all new, and have them pay at least what we pay into our pensions they have been getting away with this for years!

Also, I was born before 01JAN55 and I am receiving a 3% cola as a current retiree. You're the one who lacks reading comprehension skills.

"The only solution is to raise the rents or demolish the buildings on the south and west sides, forcing the inhabitants to leave Chicago.

Redevelop these areas with an eye towards attracting tech savvy, blue state professional types and wealthy homosexuals.

Think marinas, restaurants, bars, boutiques.

Of course, this is just a pipe dream. Rahm has EXEMPTED these areas from the big property tax increase in order to keep his plantation running.

It is funny to see his straw bosses on the "black caucus" revolt though.

3/26/2016 02:33:00 PM"

What have other areas done to deserve having Chicago's detritus foisted upon them, and would they have any say in the matter of having the thugs and parasites foisted upon them? They might not be so amenable to the plan, you know.
