"Core Values"

An interested party sent us a list of "Core Values" that the Village Leadership Academy purports to follow. Get a load of these points:
  • Village Leadership Academy Core Values are the most important underlying principles or beliefs that are the basis for our vision, goals, strategies, plans, policies, and actions. These values reveal what we strive for and give us our identity. Woven within these core values is the expectation that communication will occur in a variety of ways across the community, including active listening and the free exchange of thoughts and ideas.

    1 Community – We strive to develop a sense of unity within the school, community, nation and world.

    2 Leadership – We seek to empower, nurture and inspire individuals to be innovative and resourceful leaders within their own spheres.

    3 Scholarship – We encourage intellectual curiosity, knowledge acquisition and dissemination, and expansion of educational practices for performance improvement.

    4 ResponsibilityWe hold ourselves accountable for carrying out our roles in an exemplary manner.

    5 RespectWe acknowledge and value each person’s unique capabilities, knowledge and potential for excellence.

    6 Empathy – We seek to understand the experiences and feelings of others and respond appropriately.

    7 Global Citizenship – We identify as members of a global community, recognizing that our actions have broad-based implications.

    8 Integrity – We operate in an ethical, fair, and reliable manner in our work and relationships.
Page May seems top have missed the boat on those highlighted portions of the Core Values.

Read between the lines and it nothing but Social Justice, Social Engineering bullshit.

Teacher says, "Fuck the police" and nothing happens to the POS and the union does not denounce her, not does the mayor.

Copper off duty at a rally says, "Fuck the teachers" and the copper gets 30 days pending and the CPD is dragged through the mud, while the mayor denounces insensitive racist comments.

Bad News to report as one of Page May's biggest supporters (Karen Lewis) got re-elected as President of the CTU by a whooping 588-0 vote.

This is bad for everyone. BAD!!!

Teachers/Support Staff: Lewis has lost more for them then any other CTU president.

CPS Students: They have to continue to have bad rated teachers lead them as they're protected by Lewis and her clown car full of reps.

Chicago Taxpayers: Lewis doesn't care if their property taxes go up 1000% to pay for her underperforming group of members.

White Parents: Totally forgotten by Lewis.

Anyone White: Branded as the enemy of Lewis and the anti-white/anti-police groups backs.

CPD: "Lewis believes if they (CPD) would listen to them (CTU and its members) we can help to make them better."

May is quoted as saying, "We've had police for *hundreds of years and they've never kept black people safe. It's time to admit policing is a failed institution and move on."
Humanity tried that no policing during the fall of the Roman Empire and that time of "demographic, cultural and economic deterioration" was called the Dark Ages. Villages were burnt, men killed, woman and children sold into slavery. That did not work out well at all. If Page May is an educator, she obviously didn't pay attention in history class, methinks.
*Really thousands of years and policing brought stability and civilization, but I read books.

This is the kind of "education" that will leave you capable of and qualified only for a job like selling streetwise in the future. What a lot of core value clap trap. Lets keep hoping that the screwed up government in this state will prevent the academy and those stupid assholes who run it from receiving their public aid funding.

I read that she comes from a community of <100 in Vermont. Likely a commune given the size & state. Or maybe a cult given her alignment to the cop killer in Cuba.

Aside from being an immature, inexperienced youth who is sowing/spewing her (hateful) oats in the big city, I sadly think of the damage she is doing to children at that school.

She needs a good spanking (whooping).

...but we get the point. The same suffocating, touchy-feely New Age boilerplate, spun out by the mile, snipped off, and pasted down. "Global values," "transparency," etc. "Community outreach coordinators;" the "outreach" is for more government grant money.

Every huge corporation that runs bulldozers over baby ducks, so to speak, and then hides the billions in Panama, every outfit that ever overcharged me, screwed me over, or ignored me, professes the same "core values" and "mission statement."

So what's the reality here? Who's actually out in front with a bullhorn? Just another trash-talking, ignorant fool, screaming "F__k the police."

This delusional whack job started this: http://wechargegenocide.org/

"We Charge Genocide is a grassroots, inter-generational effort to center the voices and experiences of the young people most targeted by police violence in Chicago.

The initiative is entirely volunteer-run. We are Chicago residents concerned that the epidemic of police violence continues uninterrupted in our city."

She is concerned about "the epidemic of police violence continues uninterrupted in our city"? That's the "epidemic" she is concerned about?

Nothing on her site about the "genocide" blacks are committing against blacks. Nothing about black children being killed and maimed in droves by other black children. Nothing about a black 9 year old child being lured and executed by another black adult. Nothing about the 13 year old getting shot. Nothing about the over 70% of homicide victims being black. Nothing about the vast majority of those shooting and murders being committed by blacks. As far as I'm concerned her hands are elbow deep in the blood of these victims.

I've never met a leftist yet that shows genuine intellectual curiosity, and as far as knowledge acquisition, that too is sketchy.

We need to stop talking about this phony insignificant bitch. The more we talk about her, the more cred she gets from her circle of jerks. This wannabe leader of the black community is a white bread suburban version of Al Sharpton. This suburban Marxist, who has never suffered any type of racism, sounds just like any other whitey when not in public. But, when she's trying to rabble rouse, she puts on the African American Vernacular and dialect. Read her online posts, make note of who her friends are and what they say. Remember them and don't forget what you've learned.

The people who constantly shriek "FASCIST!" and "CENSORSHIP!" and "FREE SPEECH!" are the same people who have created the sudden "Safe Space" meme -- people should be able to go through college without ever hearing an idea that does not match their own. Remember the recent film of the assistant prof manhandling a reporter and shouting "We need some muscle over here! Get them out of here!"

Someone chalks "Trump" on a campus sidewalk, and it instantly makes the news worldwide. Hate crime!

Abduct, rape, and murder a wonderful girl on campus, beating her unrecognizable and leaving her to rot in a creek (Haruka Weiser, U. Texas Austin, case rolling right now) and it's "_______________________."

Reminds me of the mimosa. It's a plant that actually folds up, withers, shrinks itself in horror, if someone so much as brushes a leaf.

They sense that their "ideals" are a mere house of cards; that is why they cannot allow them to be challenged. Rather, they must be forced upon others; "diversity" is an often incompatible crowd of people, held together only by a ring of bayonets.

Example -- I understand that Obama is now threatening to withhold federal funding from towns that do not surrender to the HUD initiative of distributing urban problems into every quiet corner of this country.

I have already postulated "Kathryn's Law," named after Kathryn Steinle, shot to death by an illegal alien with multiple felony priors and multiple deportations while walking with her father on a San Diego pier. The offender had just been released from California state prison and was in custody of "Sanctuary City" police, who ignored an ICE hold order for deportation and let him walk out the door to kill again. Withhold federal funding from these uncooperative "sanctuaries" and you'll see things turn around right quick.

Someone out there has now got a web site on which they're tabulating the number of innocent people killed on our roads and streets by illegal alien drivers. It's really something -- numbers in the thousands already.

The Schengen visa-free, travel-anywhere-across-borders provisions are already coming apart in the EU -- which may itself collapse under the weight of the alien flood. There is already a substantial "Brexit" -- British exit from EU -- movement going, and other countries may follow.

People are beginning to act not upon unworkable theories, but based upon the nasty results of those theories -- results that they can see out their window every day now.

Good.

Then please answer this simple question. First some history. The 015th district is the same geographical size of one beat in the 016th District. There are over 300 officers who patrol the entire 015 District and 2 officers who patrol the Beat in the 016 District. This particular beat has not experienced 1 homicide in over 5 years yet the 015th District has at least 100 each year. Why is that you ask? Here is a clue. Your people are trying their best to return to the DARK AGES.
