Rush to a Consent Decree

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s City Hall is bracing for the Justice Department to release – before President Barack Obama leaves office Jan. 20 — findings from its Chicago Police Department probe triggered by the police shooting of Laquan McDonald.

    No announcement is expected before Obama delivers his farewell address in McCormick Place on Tuesday night, a speech looking at his accomplishments, coming as homicides are soaring in the president’s adopted hometown. The report is expected to be released later next week.

    It is highly unlikely the probe will conclude with a signed-and-completed consent decree outlining mandated changes in police practices, sources told the Sun-Times. What is on the table, given the time constraints, is a deal for the city and Justice Department to sign an “agreement in principle.” Such a pact, to be made with community input, would create a federal court-enforceable road forward addressing investigatory findings from the probe, launched in December 2015.
In other words, the DOJ wants Rahm to sign the agreement to find out what's in the agreement. Then they can claim some sort of "contract" with Rahm, and after Jeff Sessions decides to stop the wholesale dismantling of police departments across the nation, the ACLU or other such groups will sue Rahm to enforce said "contract."

If they win, Rahm will have to come up with hundreds of millions of dollars that he doesn't have and can't raise without committing political suicide. So will Rahm attempt to delay appearing to accept the "agreement in principle"? He doesn't have as much pull in DC as he might have had with Clinton. He isn't going to want to raise taxes again.

This reeks of desperation on the part of the DOJ, and when the government rushes, nothing good ever results.

There is no reason to sign any contract or decree... except corrupt politics.

Rahm, most likely, has zero political capital in the White House or anywhere else in Washington. I don't think that President Trump will forget the treatment he received from this city, even prior to running for President. Rahm and the alderman forced him to change the size of his building sign, blasted him for this, named a street after him then took it back, and with the help of paid democratic flunkies and some communists at UIC, caused mayhem at the Trump rally. And, to top it off, Rahm puts money aside to defend illegal immigrants and possibly criminals from deportation, saying Chicago will remain a sanctuary city. Lets see how long that last once the federal cash flow is cut off. Nope. Rahm has no political capital at all.

Other than for political reasons there's absolutely no reason for DOJ to rush nor for Rahm to enter into a blind promissory agreement.
This whole thing is a disgusting political cesspool.

O'Bama and his lapdog DOJ feel that Trump will not continue their anti police agenda so they're trying to do as much damage as they can in the very short time they have left.
Unfortunately asshole Rahm hates the police also so he may agree to enter into some sort of blind agreement.

Granny got rid of Buslik and now that she is gone Rahm should bring him back as he understands the organization and negotiate logically with DOJ

!. Sessions will never be confirmed. Even though the Republicans hold both houses, there are enough of them who hate Trump and will work with the Dems to de-rail as many of his appointments as possible.
2.The election is not until 2019. Rahm can raise taxes at least once more without major damage.
3. Chicago is an infected boil on the ass of America. Trump has much more pressing items on his aganda than lancing the boil. Don't expect much to change here locally after 1/20.
4. Quit chasing cars.

I just sent Sessions a copy of "when corruption was king" by Robert Cooley. There are some nasty things about the royal Burkes in there, and hopefully it will interest him in this political shithole.

Needless Bloodshed: Chicago 2016 Edition
Jordan Candler · Jan. 4, 2017
Needless Bloodshed: Chicago 2016 Edition
Jordan Candler · Jan. 4, 2017

In Chicago, 2016 began and ended on a bloody note. And 2017 is picking up right where 2016 left off. We warned in February that the largely “gun free” Windy City’s number of homicides was rising at an alarming, perhaps historic, rate. And while (thankfully) no records ended up being broken, the cumulative number of murders for 2016 was bad enough and definitely far worse than recent years. Officially, 762 lives were needlessly lost on the streets of Chicago last year. This represents “the most in two decades in the city and more than New York and Los Angeles combined,” CBS News reports (New York and LA registered 628 homicides). Moreover, “The increase in homicides compared to 2015, when 485 were reported, is the largest spike in 60 years.”

And it only took a few hours for 2017 to ring in additional homicides. As reported by the Chicago Tribune, “An argument between two men at an Uptown bar in the early hours of Jan. 1 ended with the two shooting at one another, leaving both dead. Their deaths ushered in the new year, marking the first and second homicides of 2017 and keeping up 2016’s soaring pace of violence.” As a side note, Chicago is not alone when it comes to worsening crime. Just before Christmas, The Wall Street Journal issued a report documenting a similar trend all over the nation: “Sixteen of the 20 largest police departments reported a year-over-year rise in homicides as of mid-December. … Nationally, the murder rate rose in 2015 for the first time in nearly a decade, though it remains well below where it stood during the 1990s.”

That last part is somewhat comforting. But what isn’t reassuring is the current trend and the risk our leftist politicians take in bringing us perilously closer to a dark age through fomenting racial grievances on urban poverty plantations and waging a war on cops, all while continuing to disarm law-abiding citizens. Barack Obama will be in his hometown of Chicago Jan. 10 to present his farewell address. His speech will surely be replete with self-praise and adoration for the so-called progress his administration has made. It would be more appropriate if he offered a eulogy for the thousands who have been slain under leftist policies.

I really hope when the DOJ becomes the REAL DOJ again (after 1/21), they come buzzing into Chicago and take down all the corruption, "deal-makers", scammers, race-baiters, and plain incompetence.

It should be a vast feeding ground for them after all the years of phony promotions (Merit Hacks), bad deals (going back before the Rahm Era), City Council, and piss-poor courts and judges.

Burn ALL of them and in lieu of jail time, scratch ALL their pensions. No need to lock them up, just let them go see what it is like to work for a living.

Now THAT would be doing the city, county and state a solid.

Not sure which headline angle Rahm, Mayor of the Murder Capitol of the USA is looking for from the obama DOJ.
Corrupt Racist Police Shooting Unarmed Black Men or Out of Control Lawless Black Community Violence.
Neither conforms to Rahm's Midwest fantasy island Sanctuary hopes and dreams.
He and Special Ed are still looking to make the crime a living-in-the-past White Privilege root problem.
The mayor will always control the Police as well as the media no matter what.

Priority...Stay Fetal for 2017 and let the shit roll up for a Change.

I have this hopeful feeling that President Trump will not forget the screwing over he got from little Rahm before he was elected President and after. Rahm was banking on Hillary and now he sees he is really a nobody in his party. Who wants to touch Rahm with the Chicago chains around his neck created by his "supporters" ? Chicago is his only viable political option anymore. And its going to get a lot hotter in his comfy little office.

The DOJ officials explained they will only "advise" the department on better ways to conduct their investigations, etc. There is no "punishment" to be expected or criticism of the department or any one individual being punished. It seems people/officers are jumping to conclusions about what the DOJ is actually doing when conducting an investigation. And as they are a federal agency, the city if bound by law to make the changes suggested, if not, then the city becomes subject to a federal lawsuit and demand that they comply. Signing by Rahm is not making a "contract" between the city and the DOJ. That is plain nonsense and reeks or paranoia.
