Rahm to Spend Money

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel acknowledged Wednesday that only 25,300 of the 155,000 eligible Chicago homeowners applied for his $20 million property tax rebate and sought after-the-fact City Council approval to spend $16 million of the leftover money.

    Some of the mayor’s chosen projects were already known and announced: speeding distribution of body cameras to Chicago Police officers, cybersecurity training at City Colleges, renovating vacant homes in depressed neighborhoods, and providing legal assistance for immigrants threatened with deportation.

    A budget amendment introduced at the City Council meeting Wednesday also includes some new goodies aimed at appeasing aldermen angered by Emanuel’s decision to spend the leftovers without Council authorization.
Appeasing aldercreatures? How about appeasing tax payers?
  • Among the additions to the laundry list:

    • $1.1 million for “crime-fighting intel centers” in the 7th and 11th police districts “to inform officers of current crime conditions and responses”
    • $500,000 to plant 1,000 trees, 20 in each of the 50 wards
    • $1.8 million to support afterschool athletics programs for CPS students “and other afterschool programs” that operate in Chicago Public Schools
    • $3.5 million for “park infrastructure improvements to ensure Chicago’s youth continue to have a variety of safe spaces for positive recreational opportunities”
    • $1 million to create a small-business incubator on the West Side
    • $1 million toward a South Side call center “to create jobs and job training opportunities”
"crime-fighting intel centers? What the hell is that?

1,000 trees? 20 per ward? The aldercreatures must be pleased!

How about a refund? We'd like our $5 back at the very least.

Rahm in absolute panic mode. Trump says he is going to send in the feds because of the murders in chicago, two days later emails come out of all RDOs cancelled for Tac, saturation, gun, gang and unit teams citywide. OT has been opened up to all officers in all districts citywide to volunteer over this weekend to work 3rd watch. Rahm wants a homicide free weekend so he can have his press conference on February 1st saying that murders are down and the plans are starting to work. Rahm starting to sweat a little bit???

Call or talk to your aldercreature and demand that the $1.3 million legal defense fund for illegals be spent on First Responders or the pension shortage. Remind the aldercreature that the election is around the corner and the office is not a guarantee. Don't take the excuse that the aldercreature either did not support the establishment of the 'legal defense fund' or that if they buck City Hall monies might be withheld for infrastructure improvements in the Ward. And don't allow the aldercreature to conflate legal and illegal into one status of citizenship; which liberals/demorats are prone to do in order to muddy the distinction.

Other groups ban together and make their voices heard. It is now time for us to let our voices be heard and not be taken for granted. If enough of us call our aldercreature they might get the hint to actually stand up to Rahm and they might actually feel emboldened; since Rahm is on politically shaky ground.

We, the First Responders, protect the City, not the illegals aliens.

I tried to apply and it was an invasive procedure where you had to present copies of your income tax returns, etc., and fill out a lengthy form. When I was called forward by the auditor from the Department of Revenue, I was told that I needed to submit additional documentation. I asked how much my projected rebate would be based upon the figures and information that I submitted. I was told that it would be less than $150.00 tops. At this point, I said to hell with it because it would take more effort and time to get the rebate than the rebate was actually worth. The experience was a total waste of time.

I have the feeling that many other Chicagoans felt the same way. Why spend so much time for so little. It would be like investing $1.00 to recover a penny. You would be better off appealing your assessed valuation for property tax purposes. Like everything that Rahm Emanuel proposes the rebate program was a fake window dressing.

Please cite your sources. For years and years coppers in 016 have complained that section 8 is going up here and there but to no avail.

The 016th district and the far northwest side of Chicago is gentrifying. So are many other neighborhoods. If a few section 8 tenants move in then it will be fine. Property values have gone back to their high levels. I really do not know what you are complaining about office.

If the Shitty knows who the 155000 eligible people are, why not just WRITE THEM A CHECK for $129 each?

Or are they just playing the usual "Rebate Scam" which is "if you don't apply, you don't get it. And even if you apply, we might deny and you don't get it. We keep as much as we can HAHAHAHAHAHAHA while inducing you to buy based on the lower cost "after rebate""

Giving money to the Park District and CPS ought to be illegal - those are ALREADY taxing entities unto themselves right? If they need money for some crap, let THEM fund it themselves - show the TRUE cost of running those entities to the Public instead of obfuscating it.

"Incubators" for small businesses? Yeah right. Business incubators require people with brains to craft a viable idea and work day and night to see it through. First off, there are probably 3 with a brain on the South or West Side and they're getting all they need with the freebies from da gubmnent - so they're not going to use this. And second of all, who in their right mind is going to travel through a fucking war zone more dangerous than Iraq to get to an incubator?

The whole thing is a thinly veiled $1M blackhole of cash to give to the Revruns so they STFU... Might as well flush the money down the toilet.

SCC, the below excerpt is from a poster on a different story. Can you open a link to address things people may have heard from talking to private defense attorneys and even judges? I am curious to see if our fetality is making a difference where it counts. I rarely go to 26th street anymore, excluding a few old cases, and it is light as hell. I haven't had a CR in about two years and, coincidentally, no new civil suits. I haven't been to PC court in about two years. Just curious about how the numbers there look. If we stop working, we drain the swamp of attorney and judges because they are no longer needed.

"coppers who like court, states attorneys, corrections officers and ironically defense attorneys and civil attorneys(boo hoo for the last two). Ive talked to several defense attorneys at 26th street and they even admit they arent making the money the use to make. some of them even say they are trying to continue the hell out of cases from a year or two ago so they can keep getting a few more bucks for continuance appearances. they use to get the big ticket cases just a year or two ago like big delivery cases, armed habitual, uuw charges and search warrants. all those types of cases are dwindling and now they are getting alot of calls to appear at traffic court, court for suspended and revoked and misdemeanor court. they would get 5-10K for a good UUW case for a guy with a bad backround where they are lucky now to get 500-2000 on a dwls, revoked or misdemeanor dui case. the lawyers even say they need police to get to work again... and for that reason only I say DONT DO A THING!!!!!!! Especially for the civil attorneys.

" fully fund" the pension- not even close. 3 point something billion in the fund- was losing over 300 million a year to payouts- fund would have lasted 8-10 years at most. Now, with the new money, there is ONLY a difference of 80to 90 million of outflow. Bad economy- might have another 15-20 years or so. Look at the Pension Board statements- very telling about inflows and outflows. Besides, we have politically connected advisors that actually suck big time.

He would also need medical clearance and i am guessing a few months on medical roll.

Now you got to wonder why a man would refuse to go in an ambulance.

1) he is way sicker than anyone knows.
2) can't afford giving up SUPE spot because of FIANCES test scores?
3) He still aint married and his fiance would receive no benefits so that would get pushed up!

Wish him well plenty of people sick where i work and they all go on medical.

That is like saying he is sending in the feds to this out of control violent city and rahm and aldermen say the Chicago way "gimme tat money" They grab it and throw it anyone that can help them saty in power for thuglife and illegal invader programs President trump is the most savvy president in recent memory and the dems are dragging their pathetic asses confirming AG Jeff Sessions knowing full well he is going to unleash the full power on the corruption and theft in Chiraq!

Now that Linda Mcmahon who is the wife of WWE wrestling founder how about a big grant park event like this, the troops are in the front in military Jeeps, and then Jeff Sessions with Mad Dog mattis could ride in on the tank and show Chicago how the new President Trump will stop the "carnage right now it stops!" hey aldergoof lopez,solis, and the rest what do you think? Would this impede your war zones wards?

(OT) Not going to pay for paywall but this headline says it all:

Obama presidential library
Obama Foundation considers closing roads in Jackson Park

The Obama Foundation is floating the idea of closing a major thoroughfare that connects Lake Shore Drive motorists to the South Side and a key route to Indiana and Michigan to create a pedestrian campus around its planned presidential library and museum in Jackson Park, according to several people...

Jackson Park Obama library site

so barry obama is not living here, but is putting another crappy structure here and disrupting the travel of people that live here! this guy is all about negative disruption from the anti-police left and others when does this stop! How can they dictate closing streets that are needed you know for the few left before left that will turn out the lights!

What program is there to assist veterans who walk our streets homeless because of the effects of PTSD that was never diagnosed or known about in the Vietnam era. These men and women fought for their country, were legal residents of this country and paid taxes but are discarded and ignored. Does anyone see the irony? This city is a bad dream that I hope I eventually wake up from.

30 years on the job says,

The only thing that works are boots on the street.
Thst means actually on street dooing street stops and making arrests.

Yes the ACLU is not going to like this but i will bet a shiny quarter that this is what we wil eventually do.


All the money being spent on crap that sound high tech is BS.
Since my grandfather and father did this job the good guys need to go out and actively hunt do bad guys...

1/27/2017 08:02:00 AM

Aye... There's the rub right there.
To actively HUNT bad guys...

Not hand holding and song singing with the dregs of society.

Not pretending to care about those who
inflict misery on law-abiding, upright society.

Not the faux friendly forced smile and sing-songy
vocal gymnastics to convey how non-threatening
you are.

Not having to avoid making people uneasy
with those eyes hardened by years of witnessing
the most horrible shit human beings could ever
do to each other. You know... Those eyes that are
feared and hated.

"how can you look at us with
such eyes? Stop that, you scare us."

Next thing you know there'll be demands that
you must no longer hunt bad and evil people
and have the combative mindset you need for
street survival.

You'll stand accused of being Warrior Cops.

A scary throw-back to a time when
big, strong, smart, rough, tough and aggressively
assertive men swore an oath of office and
the people were very glad of it.

There was none of this "Give people time
to express their frustration and stop being so
quick with fists, batons, handcuffs and firearms
to address issues of law, public peace and order."

Any such concerns were properly addressed with a JUDGE
in a COURT OF LAW.

As we were taught?
"It's a POLICE ORDER! NOT A REQUEST."

It was simple.
Comply or get knocked down.

The LAW says so.

Hopefully, Rule of Law will actually
mean something once again.

Guess who fainted on duty!

Now a regular patrolman would be required to go to hospital ASAP!
Somebody is not healthy and it is obvious by the way he looks.

He would also need medical clearance and i am guessing a few months on medical roll.

Now you got to wonder why a man would refuse to go in an ambulance.

1) he is way sicker than anyone knows.
2) can't afford giving up SUPE spot because of FIANCES test scores?
3) He still aint married and his fiance would receive no benefits so that would get pushed up!

Wish him well plenty of people sick where i work and they all go on medical.

1/27/2017 12:40:00 PM

Did you catch the fake care and concern by Rahm?

Instead of stepping back and giving The Supe
some air, The North-Shore Shit-Ass had to jump
in with some "Miracle Water" to revive the man.

Is that the best you can do, Rahm?
Leave the man alone.

Full recovery to the Super.

Leaders in cities granting asylum to such criminals are going to have to explain to their residents why the imagined rights of criminal noncitizens are more important than receiving federal funds to build infrastructure, hospitals, or improve their schools. And I can’t wait to see Mayor Rahm Emanuel explain to the people of Chicago – where 4,000 people were shot last year – why it’s important to put more criminals on the streets of the Windy City.

Jesse Jackson has crime problems solved:

Updated 25 mins ago
CHICAGO (WLS) -- President Donald Trump has called out Chicago for its recent violence and on Twitter threatened to "send in the Feds" to fix it.

Rev. Jesse Jackson, founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, joined ABC7 Saturday morning to talk about the president putting a spotlight on Chicago's violence. Jackson said President Trump should bring in the departments of Housing and Urban Development and Education to Chicago.

"If we were to have a White House conference on urban reconstruction that would be a plan and not use us as a foil. Come here with a plan," he said.

Jackson also thanked Mayor Rahm Emanuel for keeping Chicago as a sanctuary city.

Sorry Jesse your getting nowhere near the White House your girl criminal clinton lost, your not getting more millions to squander pay attention to your criminal son, and you have been taking money how many years?

You do now realize that the captain will
now turn the other supervisors against
you in retaliation, right? Your first sign
of trouble is when he pushed back
against your "character statement"
of not being a pimp and refusing to
whore your officers...

Upstanding people have a very tough row
to hoe on this job once they're identified

Went through a similar

Please cite your sources. For years and years coppers in 016 have complained that section 8 is going up here and there but to no avail.

The 016th district and the far northwest side of Chicago is gentrifying. So are many other neighborhoods. If a few section 8 tenants move in then it will be fine. Property values have gone back to their high levels. I really do not know what you are complaining about office.

Have a happy, safe and a long retirement.

1/27/2017 11:08:00 AM

This is one source. Arena is trying to sugar coat this by saying that the affordable housing is for cops, teachers, and nurses. Since when do City employees get vouchers for CHA housing? They claim they will try to market to veterans, but go on to state that there are people on the CHA waiting list for 10 years. They want to bring these feral creatures from the South and West side to the Northwest Side. There is a petition being circulated that already has about 1500 signatures, in just 2 days. I can see why this alderprick is having the community meeting inside the CPD 16th District building on 02/09/2016. He's probably afraid that people from Jefferson Park are going to tar and feather him. The coward Arena never showed up to the pro-police rallies held at the 16th District Station to support police last summer.
