Sentencing.....Again

  • California communities may be feeling the fallout from a controversial measure that reduced penalties for a range of crimes, as law enforcement report an uptick in everything from robberies to auto theft – and point the finger squarely at what’s known as Prop 47.

    The measure was approved at the ballot box in 2014 and downgraded many nonviolent offenses like property crimes and simple drug offenses from felonies to misdemeanors, part of an effort to reduce prison over-crowding in the state.

    But as the measure has been implemented, several police departments have reported a spike in shop-lifting and auto theft, among other crimes, and in part blame Prop 47.
How big of an increase?
  • Recent press reports show that in San Francisco, robberies are up 23 percent; in Los Angeles, violent crimes are up 20 percent; and in Sacramento, homicides are up 23 percent.
But hey, prisons are emptying, so everything must be great!

Meanwhile, Rahm blames Cook County judges for the uptick in crime due to lax sentencing. Anyone want to guess what the spike will be should Foxx win the general election?

Rahm blaming the judges? Rahm blaming the same people he goes out to dinner with? Rahm blaming the same people he works out with at east bank club? These people are thick as thieves. It's all a dog and pony show. He acts like he's mad at them but will be joking around with them as soon as he sees them again.

I hope the people who voted NO have moved away and the people who wanted to live in crime are happy.

Chicago is headed in the same direction. I only hope my family and I can survive and move away in 9 years. Which will be here before I know it :)

Well they let all the convicts in County vote, how is that working out?? Just keep voting DemocRAT. The party has become the party for the bottom feeders. What happened to the middle class.

If Foxx, and her restorative justice, gets in it'll be Katie bar the door.
We'll experience a spike in crime rates never seen around here before.
It's what the "community" wants.... right?

Rahm should call out the Cook County Democrats process for "vetting" judges: it has nothing to do with ability or suitability and everything to do with party loyalty, being a party team player, and waiting your turn.

Who knew?



Silly liberal me. I thought they enrolled at Harvard, finished their degrees, got jobs, worked hard, raised families, paid taxes, and settled into quiet productive lives.

State Representatives Kwame Raoul (endorsed by FOP) and LaShawn Ford are working hard for their criminal constituencies and have been proposing a raft of similar legislation for Illinois over the past year.

They are in lockstep with Obama/Holder policies for emptying federal prisons and dumping convicts (aka Democratic voters) on the streets.

These are nothing short of scorched earth policies and prove the contempt these politicians have for the law.

Go back and listen to Foxx on Chicago Tonight, the evening of 3/16/16. Listen to her words carefully. She slipped and basically admitted that CPD will be prosecuted whenever she gets a chance. Something not right when political puppets come into power! Watch your backs CPD

Foxx will win as this is a democratic county. It will take a bit for her changes to take effect, and no one really knows what those changes will entail. Her entire campaign has hinged on prosecuting more cops faster.

Yeah, the slant on WBBM Radio was that "Rahm has moved beyond looking at the police as the cause of all this violence. It's the courts too, and we need stricter gun laws."

Maybe someday he'll have a look at the culture of violence-as-sport (those funerals with the Cadillac coffins, custom T-shirts, and big "repasts" are loads of fun) and the "no snitchin'" Code Of Silence?

Oh. He does say that it's "unacceptable," and for his constituents to "take it in the alley."

They did. "Take it in the alley," I mean. That was where 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee got it.

We are moving right along here...

Mr. Southside,

The difference is that although it is cheaper dollar for dollar to keep these mutts locked up, the burden of the revenue source to keep someone locked up falls on toni Perp-winkle and the county and the taxpayer. If they don't keep them locked up, the cost of the damages they cause is passed on squarely to the taxpayer (shootings, violent crime), the individual victims and their insurance companies (property damage, theft, ect). It's super easy to pull a smoke and mirrors trick like saying "oh my god it's racist!!!! Too many blacks in jail!!!! Vote for me!!!!" When in reality the county just doesn't want to pay the bills for these animals. Kind of like us. Running for office on a popular social platform (hating the police, the peoples/folks Democratic Party of cook county) is a sure fire way to fleece money from taxpayers. It's not like the tax rates here will go down if we let all the criminals out, so where is that money going to go if it's not feeding ray ray and moo moo and giving them a spot to stay at play cards and watch cable tv? Into Mr. Tony Prekwinkle's pocket, Foxx's as well, and undoubtedly Rahm will get a cut too. I should definitely pass the dick's test for sure, I just figured it all out!!!!!! Oh wait. Nvm.

Not a PO, this is how Foxx will be worse than Alvarez. For a long time now, Foxx has been an open hater of the police and ran on a platform of police reform. "Police reform" to someone like her means putting cops in jail. For anything she can. While she will want to let go "low level felonies" for normal people/folks, without even looking at seeking a conviction, any case of a police officer even being accused of doing anything wrong, whether it be credible or not, will be vetted and prosecuted to the fullest extent. Mind you, any case of police misconduct however small will be treated as a criminal matter. I highly doubt that the slowdown of policing and the uptick of violent crime is going to level out at this point. It's coming from a pumping of the brakes, to a crawl, to a complete halt. After she convicts her first copper, Cpd might throw that fucker in reverse. It's hard enough to get a shithead convicted and sentenced to anything amounting to a real punishment in cook county as it is. The states attorneys office will flat out not prosecute a wide variety of cases with her at the helm. These two factors in conjunction will lead to a crippling of street level protection for tax paying citizens, and a flooding of the streets with offenders. You do the math.

She has no EXPERIENCE! Once a ASA is hired out of law school they start out in felony review, from there they get their feet wet and gain a little litigation experience in branch court and juvenile court. After a few years experience they get assigned to a third chair in a felony court room, then second chair, then 1st chair. Then you get promoted to supervisors, from what we hear Foxx was a juvenile court ASA, that court is a joke, if you don't believe me go sit in a couple of cases, the punishment they dole out there is writing a book report, secret probation, and super secret probation. This lady has never worked her way up the ranks of the states attorneys office, never litigated a murder trial, and never handled a police involved shooting and she is now suppose to be the most experienced attorney to run the office? We all know the only reason she won the primary was because of her race and political affiliation. Is that clear enough?

Heres a sure bet trump wants people that are strong and support police and of course military that is what is needed a cleansing of these idiotic liberal ideas ruining America, we need a leader that other countries fear, by Trump wanting a strong military he says "They will not mess with us" about time strength is total weakness cowardliness like we have now is why we are defenseless today compared to years ago! General Patton must be spinning in his grave the WW2 generation was the greatest generation ever, this generation is the "cowardly generation!

Rahm you wnat to restore confidence in the taxpaying public and the police department,and you want a Black leader no further be a man that is not scared, a man that wants a real leader make the call,now David Clarke Milwaukee county sheriff for Superintendent, promise you this my disposition and I cannot speak for other coppers but would be the police would be back working, because sheriff Clarke knows how to confront the punks and thugs, the fake revs watch your crime rate drop,watch your approval ratings rise, watch tourism be extremely high, watch neighborhoods see what a true professional that police can respect do.

Lastly fund the pension the full amount no more "shorts" that is the law and we all know you follow every law as you want to lead by example!

What good is a law that when its enforced, CR's fly and DOJ/ACLU move in to smack you upside your head? So, FINALLY Rahm admits it's the Judges fault and not Fetal Police. Hmmmmmmmm.
He's even reminded the media that he has the final say who picks the next Supt and not a 5 star appointed Panel.
I bet EmptySack® Rahm Emanuel now wishes he didn't invite the DOJ/ACLU to town.

Preckwinkle is her puppet master. Foxx will not be allowed to have an independent thought. Thank god she will not be in charge this summer. I fear we lose the city by Memorial Day weekend. All days off cancelled for 4th of July weekend. If she was in charge not asking for any bond for all non-violent offenses at fartwinkle's request the city could look like Ferguson or Baltimore with our ball less bosses and mayor.

Speaking of lax sentencing. The Honor Student that shot and killed an officer in Greenville today was 17 and:
Mackey was arrested in March 2015 for strong arm robbery. He was convicted and sentenced to 10-years suspended for 251 days time served.

Even better Trump says Putin respects Trump unlike respecting barry, so when Trump takes office maybe we could charter some jumbo jets and send our thugs for a lesson in diversity. Putin could open the gulag style prisons (real prisons for you liberal idiots),and they could do time their and maybe tack on a couple more years for giggles, bet they would not want to commit crime again. Another thing trump clearly states "If you kill a police officer you will get federal death penalty" He said this would be done immediately by executive order, that would Trump the states laws letting scum and live and possibly get paroled! The foxx in the henhouse and crime ramps up as kim lets them free along with toni in the side car! As an added bonus they then attack police and put them through the media wringer and try to blame the officer for thugs arrest! Stay sane,keep your things, kiss your kids, love life you have to "stay fetal"
