Quick Answer - No

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel is off to Rome to witness the elevation of Archbishop Blase Cupich to cardinal after the City Council on Wednesday approved his $8.2 billion budget in record time without a single dissenting vote.

    But now comes the hard part: Delivering on the mayor’s $60 million first-year promise to fill 471 police vacancies, keep pace with rising retirements and still hire enough police officers in 2017 to add 250 patrol officers, 37 sergeants, 50 lieutenants, 92 field-training officers and 100 detectives.

    Former Mayor Richard M. Daley once promised to bolster the police force by 600 officers, only to “run out of money,” according to then-Police Supt. LeRoy Martin.

    Martin’s candid admission to aldermen so embarrassed and infuriated Daley, the police superintendent abruptly retired a few months later.

    The question is whether Emanuel can avoid falling into the same trap.
Rahm has lied constantly about the Department. Manpower, killings, death investigations, 1,000 cops to be hired (reassigned), etc. There's no reason to think he's going to stop now. He'll move some people, eliminate some positions, reorganize some bureaus, cover up cheating, and generally, do just enough to keep the various voting blocs off his back. He's a micromanager who can't keep his 9.5 fingers off the throttle. And we don't see the bloodletting tapering off.

To quote someone: 8.2 billion dollar budget vs 2,7 million residents. The math tells the real story. Check out out..see how much Taxpayers will really pay in 2017. Plus count in the HUGE health insurance pensioners must pay. Working Residents and City Retirees are walking dead broke. Quick. Do the math.

Rahn can help make up some of the numbers quickly. All he has to do is go forth and recruit/hire qualified cops away from other departments in Illinois. There must be several hundred cops in other cities that would love to have the opportunity to go to work with the famous CPD.

This city and police dept. really sucks!

I tell all young kids to leave this city for someplace all the time!

Living and working for Chicago almost feels like a prison sentence and all you hear from coppers is when are they going to leave, almost like discussong a parole date!

By the way, Fuck You Rahm! Tool!

"He noted that “one of the biggest classes” in Chicago history recently graduated from a police academy that will be converted into a factory for recruits,..." A factory is an industrial site where workers manufacture goods or operate machines processing one product into another. Rahm clearly shows by his words and attitude that police officers are not human beings but product.

(OT) Then we have this "jesse jackson wants barry obama to pardon hillary"

http://www.freep.com/story/news/politics/2016/11/16/jesse-jackson-obama-pardon-hillary-clinton/93979554/

So what do we see here? Simply in order to be pardoned you have to be "guilty" of a crime! We all know jackson is nothing but a pos criminal extortionist also. Jackson again you telling the people that we definitely elected the right man President Trump for the job because she is a criminal correct? The big question is what is rahms emails also? Maybe rahm and the clintons can get adjoining cells and hopefully soon!

rahm you talk shit about President trump and now your going to cost taxpayers billions when the total federal aid is stopped, but yet you continue to stand up for criminal illegal invaders! rahm you don't speak for many of us, your rhetoric and lies are overwhelming your such a total disgrace a pathetic little man! The President Trump attorney general already has information on you and will be adding more we are tired of it, you and the 50 thieves and liars! The people "we the people" elected Donald Trump president bet he would of taken Illinois also except for the no id required illegal voting here right "lyin rahm?"

With Toni Preckwinkle, Kimm Foxx and Tom Dart trying to empty the jail cells, all of the police officers are going to be wading shoulder deep in thugs. This pre-trial detainees are not in jail merely because they lack bail money, they are there because they have been charged with crimes, usually a succession of crimes.

The ugly truth that the liberals conveniently ignore is that damned few nonviolent first time offenders are jailed. They generally receive I-bonds. The poor unfortunates that Preckwinkle, Foxx and Dart want to turn loose have prior arrests and convictions.

Releasing these prisoners and a short staffed CPD do not make for a good mix.

SCC, you forgot to highlight this juicy portion of Spielman's Sun-Times piece:

"The police hiring surge marked a stunning turnaround for a mayor who closed three police stations; eliminated more than 1,400 police vacancies; and spent five years relying on overtime- to the tune of $116.1 million a year- to mask a manpower shortage that has mushroomed under Emanuel with police retirements outpacing hiring by 975 officers..."

They say it's a celebration for Chicago and these delegates represent our city.....its just a vacation disguised as a unity coalition.......lies!! The Catholic Church...BLM...reduce workers salaries, spread your cash wealth, eliminate bonds....let our criminals free......

This place is royally screwed Up!!

Did him and eddie get preboarded with the handicapped like eddie pulled at midway? That was really disgraceful! Even ed burke and his wife were smart enough to pay their own way. Knowing Ed Burke he knows that Trump has something planned with the new doj and he does not want to be caught in it! rahm does things "stupidily" the clinton way, hey rahm tell rod we all said hi as your put into your cell finally!

rahm you and the other 49 are with us or against us, and you supporting the illegals here your definitely anti-law and order! Like Newt Gingrich said "rahm is goofy" he was being nice your far deeper than that!

Here is why it is important: THEY need to know that will be consequence for this cheating scandal. It is theft plain and simple. More importantly it poisons the whole Department. It kills moral.

People need to b held accountable for their actions. People need to be demoted. People need to be fired. Some will need to be jailed. That will tell the rank and file that things can and will get better.

To you it may seem that only a few Sergeants are victims here. In reality every member of the Department past and present need to see that things are going in the right direction. In fact every tax paying member of the city is a victim. We all need to see that justice is done.

Here's what I don't get. Maybe someone can 'splain it to me.

Per the in the Sun-times today: "a department that’s roughly 48.5 percent white, 27.5 percent black, 20.7 percent Hispanic and 2.5 percent Asian".

The racial makeup of the city in 2010 was 32% black, 45.3% white (31.7% non-Hispanic white), 5% Asian, and 3% from two or more races.

Is the goal to match the force with equal numbers to the population?
Why is the focus on race all the time? Let's get some qualified coppers added to the ranks. Green, purple, magenta, whatever color can do the job. If you are not equal in skills,move on.
It shouldn't matter what color you are.
