Are These the Numbers?
Remember those "new" cops, sergeants and lieutenants Rahm pulled off the street for a graduation photo op? Someone posted these numbers:
- By the way media, 150 cops from inside spots to outside spots means nothing when 113 coppers will be official retired after they finish their 7A furlough segments in a week or two. We lost 46 sgts since may 1st and we lost about 86 P.Os in may and June. So 86 in may and june, and 113 in july equals 199 police officers lost. Add in Sgts lost and its about 245 bodies lost since may 1st. So really, those 150 just added a band aid to a gushing gunshot wound.
And those retirements are probably going to accelerate as the "55-and-out" expires this time next year.
