Sense Taking Hold?

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel is hitting the brakes on his plan to abolish the Independent Police Review Authority to solicit public input needed to “repair the relationship” between citizens and police.

    The mayor had originally planned to introduce the ordinance at Wednesday’s City Council meeting. Top mayoral aides have been holding closed-door briefings that raised more questions than they answered, aldermen said.

    Ald. Anthony Napolitano (41st), a former Chicago police officer-turned-firefighter, has raised concerns about people with no background in either the law or policing exercising multiple layers of oversight over police officers already in a defensive crouch.

    “You’re pretty much sending `em out there to go on kind of a witch hunt for police officers,” Napolitano has said.
People like this Ja'Mal character who has the superintendent's actual cell phone number and brags on Facebook about how a police officer is going to get fired (without there being any sort of investigation by the way) because Eddie Johnson told him so? You think he isn't lining up to be on this "citizen review board"? That's a witch hunt for sure.

But this part of the article made us laugh out loud:
  • On Thursday, Aldermen Ariel Reboyras (30th), chairman of the City Council’s Public Safety Comittee, and Budget Committee Chairman Carrie Austin (34th) wrote a letter to the “Coalition to Follow Up on the Police Accountability Task Force” outlining plans for a pair of “subject matter hearings” on July 6 and 7.

    The purpose is to solicit public input and take testimony from “subject matter experts” that will “inform the crafting” of ordinance language and “make the reforms even stronger.”
Subject Matter Experts - like the ones that fixed the Lie-utenant Exam for the girlfriends, wives and significant others of high ranking police exempt members?

This is going to be a clusterfuck of unimaginable proportions.

It looks like Rahm is doing on a local level what Obama is trying to do on a national level. Things are starting to get pretty grim.

More smoke and mirrors before the axe falls. Can it get any worse? The answer is a resounding yes.

How about the DOJ's subject matter expert - the police chief from Oakland who just got fired because of a sex scandal involving underage girls? Look it up - Chief Whent.

06:08am - Yes sir, chalk up another victory for the nobility!! Anytime the DOJ is looking for community input, they turn to the nobility - not to mention favorable treatment for grants to study the " justice involved youths." They're like the jesse jackson sr. of law enforcement.

In response to the comment, "IPRA employees are all political appointees. That's the problem," This is a false statement. What is true is most of the employees are well educated and model citizens.

TO 0854 IPRA employees are not all political appointees. Try reading sometimes. There are some good people there who are civil servants my girlfriend being one of them. This city is gone down the drain but don't blame the police or IPRA they only can do som much. #scottliedIPRAdied
