Spending Non-Existent Money

A trait of politicians in general, but a specialty here in Chicago:
  • The Chicago Police Department needs at least 500 and as many as 1,000 additional officers — over and above attrition — to confront an alarming spike in homicides and shootings that has the city on pace to top 750 murders in 2016, influential aldermen said Wednesday.

    Five days after Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s City Council floor leader telegraphed the mayor’s intention to hire “hundreds” of additional officers, chairmen of the Black and Hispanic caucuses upped the ante.

    Ald. Roderick Sawyer (6th) demanded at least 500 additional officers, at a cost of roughly $50 million, and offered to support yet another property tax increase to pay for it.

    That’s on top of nearly $1.1 billion in tax increases to solve the pension crisis at the city and public schools with nothing tangible to show for it.
Well gee Rod, thanks for that additional "unexpected" tax increase.

And Burke has a bright idea - let Washington DC pay for something:
  • On Wednesday, Ald. Edward Burke (14th) urged the Chicago Police Department to make the QuickClot Combat Gauze that costs roughly $47 a roll and $120 for the entire First-Aid kit standard issue for all police officers.

    “Medical care has advanced tremendously. But there’s still that gap, which could be minutes between paramedics arriving and taking them to the hospital. This allows us to at least stop the bleeding and give somebody a better chance,” Cabral said.

    Asked where the money would come from at a time when Mayor Rahm Emanuel is scrounging for every dollar to hire hundreds of additional police officers, Burke talked about exploring how the state of New York is paying for a similar edict.

    “I’m hopeful that, perhaps through the Office of Emergency Management, there can be federal funds identified that may be used for this kind of emergency care. It would seem to make sense to me,” the alderman said.
Correct us if we're wrong, but the IRS collects money for the Federal government, right? So we're paying for it anyway, even if Burke pretends he doesn't know where the money actually comes from. And we're sure every other taxpayer in the United States is just overjoyed at paying an extra few pennies to stem the bloodshed in a town they wouldn't visit on a bet.

Don't get us wrong. It's probably some of the better training the Department has offered and we've seen coppers go out and buy their own kits (tax deductible?) for use on the street. But it's meant primarily as a life saver for wounded cops or their partners.

Hiring 500 new cops won't cost a penny. More than 500 will retire and the new ones get paid a lot less than the most senior police who are leaving.

If only we were talking about hiring, and adding 500 ADDITIONAL, over today's total, but let's be honest. That is NOT what's really being floated.

I think i get it, cops are handcuffed from doing all police work (as not to upset the voters) which results in more persons shot, so the answer is to carry medical supplies (that i purchase) and provide medical care, solid plan.

I don't like the idea of spending MORE money to keep the riff-raff alive.

Buying a pack for yourself or your partner, by ALL means - YES.

If they can buy bullets and guns, they can buy a Clot-Kit as well. Let the gangbangers buy their own.

It's already a done deal. Rahmmy just announced his plan to levy yet another increase on the water and sewer tax, this increase is on top of the increase he just increased. See, he's trying to force everyone onto the water meter plan by making the non-metered plan unaffordable. He has been continually increasing it proving my point. He's now increasing it several times a year. Proof in and of itself. See, this way, once he baits everyone onto the meter system, he can jack that rate through the sky and blame you, the user for the amount it costs you. He's a charlatan, but not a good one.

I bought the clotting kit with my own money but there is no way I would have used it on a pos. it was for me or my partner. As for administering first aid to offenders like I hear some coppers have, my view is the only medical training I ever got was a Boy Scout first aid merit badge back in the sixties/ I'm not paid to be a doctor and I have no doctor training. Therefore I do not perform doctor functions. I always called for an ambulance and never performed medical procedures I was not educated or trained or paid to do.

Burke's request is not born out of compassion: they are only concerned about with bringing down the homicide numbers. .......

If we can't hire more police, let's train the police to provide first aid so that more lives can be saved, I mean, so the homicide numbers don't go up.....

With 3,000 shootings in the city this year, the only people the politicians should thank for keeping the homicide numbers down are the medical personnel who save more lives than the police do.....

Hmmmmm...... maybe there's something there---let's start blaming the medical profession for not saving more people's lives.... let's give them more training..... let's hire more paramedics with ALS training...... ???

So the mayhem in "Da Hood", necessitates increasing the taxes of the people whose Hoods remain stable. We are expected to produce more for the non-producers. Instead, let me suggest No Go Zones as exist as in Europe. Everyone who does NOT want to remain under the control of gangs can leave. You already are eligible for a voucher to move, consider an apartment in Highland Park or Wilmette. The City continues to provide basic services, and we let the animals, Peoples and Folks, Tribes; live in harmony. If we see anyone else driving into the zones, it will only be to purchase drugs or sex. Rahm will visit, if someone opens a French Restaurant in the neighborhood, we can call it "Le Petite Putz", in honor of our Mayor, who is a Petite Putz! Stay Fetal, Stay Fetal. Baby"G"

Once you have that kit and on a shooting scene and don't use it you will be held liable. I'm not wasting $30-$40 on a p.o.s. nor getting full of blood from a p.o.s. Only medical attention I'm obligated to do is call for a ambulance and have shit head place his own hand on his wound. I would only carry a tourniquet for myself or to use on my partner and even a innocent bystander.

If and when they start issuing these kits, respond to every EMS call and offer some bandages from the kit. Then you need a new kit. If you get a papercut or other minor scrape or cut, make sure to use the kit on yourself. Try your best to use one or two kits each week. You won't see the kits for very long once the city realizes they can't afford to issue replacements when the kits are used. Think about those PPE kits that were supposed to be in the trunk of every squad car. Who ever even saw one of those? If you saw one, what was the chance it wasn't already ripped open to scavenge some piece from it? They never issued the amount they should've and they never replaced them. More smoke and mirrors to make it look like they're doing something to help with the shootings. If you want the police to play doctor, you need to pay them more. LEMART training was one of the best classes a cop could take, but now it will be turned into some sort of first aid class for the mutts. They'll mandate that anyone who takes the class has to provide medical aid to anyone they run across, not just those they shoot themselves. That will increase the lawsuits and strippings, reduce the number of officers, and scare more into retiring. The ship is already sinking, and these assholes are just poking more holes in the hull. Hire police. Prosecute and sentence violent offenders appropriately. Get rid of the waste and incompetence in government and the department. Then maybe you'll see a change in the bloodbath. If I'm issued one of these kits, I'll probably accidentally drop it while opening it. Can't use dirty bandages on a poor victim, can I? Too bad I'm so clumsy.

When LEMART training came out, I thought it was a great idea but feared we would be forced to use it on shitheads and now it begins. If the city buys the gauze, We will have to be trained with it. If we are trained with it, we will be open to more lawsuits (i.e. we didn't use it correctly, we didn't use it quickly enough, we didn't respond fast enough to perform 1st aid). And don't quote me the Good Samaritan law...some bottom feeders will sue for anything and cook co juries is notorious for violating common sense

Just another way to cater to an already catered to constituency who can't help but put holes in each other at an ever increasing rate. It's not enough that we foot the bill for the ambulance, hospital, and pay police to process the crime scene (babysit a corner), fire to wash it off. Now they also expect you to provide emergency medical supplies designed to keep YOU and YOUR PARTNER alive in the event of catching lead due to said catered to constituents. Sure let's just pay for that too, because you know, they're "entitled" to it after all. There is NOTHING you can do from the outside to change a man (or woman) who doesn't want to. Real change comes from within. Throwing endless entitlements and money at these "communities" clearly has not worked, but we keep doing it.....why?! What's the definition of insanity again? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? Oh by the way, if you provide said medical attention to Shithead Inc. and he dies anyways or ends up fucked up in ANY way...are you a doctor? Do you think that their first stop isn't the attorneys office? Then you and all of us will end up paying for that too! "Squad, send an ambulance." (A few short hours go by, various "citizens" shouting "where was ya'll at?! Why you not helping us?.....after speaking with same citizens and trying to figure out what happened...."y'all doin too much!"). "Squad, we're ready to wrap it up here have CFD come out here to do a wash down." Rinse. Lather. Repeat.

Do you remember when the department has several thousand more officers, at one time we were striving for 14,000. Also we used to get about 4 to 5 hundred squad cars a year.
We paid taxes and got good service. Now the department is thousand under that goal. Lots less working cars too. I never saw a reduction in my taxes to reflect the reduction in manpower.
The Democrats were too busy handing out bags of money to their buddies.
So you see, if we had honest government, we would not need a tax raise.

You won't see the kits for very long once the city realizes they can't afford to issue replacements when the kits are used. Think about those PPE kits that were supposed to be in the trunk of every squad car. Who ever even saw one of those? If you saw one, what was the chance it wasn't already ripped open to scavenge some piece from it? They never issued the amount they should've and they never replaced them. More smoke and mirrors to make it look like they're doing something to help with the shootings. If you want the police to play doctor, you need to pay them more. LEMART training was one of the best classes a cop could take, but now it will be turned into some sort of first aid class for the mutts. They'll mandate that anyone who takes the class has to provide medical aid to anyone they run across, not just those they shoot themselves. That will increase the lawsuits and strippings, reduce the number of officers, and scare more into retiring. The ship is already sinking, and these assholes are just poking more holes in the hull. Hire police. Prosecute and sentence violent offenders appropriately. Get rid of the waste and incompetence in government and the department. Then maybe you'll see a change in the bloodbath. If I'm issued one of these kits, I'll probably accidentally drop it while opening it. Can't use dirty bandages on a poor victim, can I? Too bad I'm so clumsy.

When you have 1000 officers retire at topped out pay, how can you not afford to hire 1000 officers at starting pay? Must be that public school education, I can't add
===============
it will take several years from the time they decide to do the hiring until the new cops show up on the streets. best to get to hiring now rather than waiting.

Don't Do it, Don't use it. You are not Paramedics and will just get sued. Fuck Ed Burke.

I think it's for uniforms. What do you think it's for? I know it's not for buying medical supplies to be used on random citizens. Are you really this dumb or were you being sarcastic?
