De-Policing, the New Norm

  • Effective law enforcement is, by its nature, proactive. Cops have to go out, meet people, observe the actions on the street, know the “usual suspects” who commit most of the crime, terrorizing the people of these, mainly, minority communities. They need to concentrate their efforts on the relatively few people who do commit the crime. And once these criminals are put in jail, guess what? Well, while they are in jail, they cannot rob or murder the people on the street trying to go on with their lives. The fewer the people who are victims of crime, the lower the crime rate is.

    [...]

    But something has happened on the way to more murders and mayhem. The Eric Holder/Loretta Lynch Justice Departments, in coordination with radical groups like Black Lives Matter and the ACLU, have made the police the targets of lawsuits, interference, harassment and other efforts to stop enforcement of the law. It climaxed with the railroading of six officers from Baltimore Police Department after the death of Freddie Gray.

    The results In many communities, cops are withdrawing to their safe space and going to fireman mode. Fire trucks do not patrol the street, looking for a fire. They are at their stations waiting until a call comes in. Effective policing, cannot act like that. In order to prevent crime, a cop must scan the streets looking for the proverbial “smoke.”
And he points out that it's a long road back:
  • ....cops are not trusting by their nature, and after seeing officers being lynched for doing their jobs, will not stick their necks out immediately. Besides their own lives, they have families to worry about, finances, reputations. Darren Wilson did nothing wrong when he shot Michael Brown, yet he is the one who lost his job and is basically in hiding. Brown’s family is suing Wilson and Ferguson for a fortune. So until cops think they can police without being targeted for a political lynching, crime will go up, and the people hardest hit will be “women and minorities.”
It'll be years.

Police Like You Have No Friends.

It's working and it's driving all
the right peoples and folkses
absolutely insane.

You see... Alderfool Sawyer
and Lightfoot Lori were shit-talking
in the scum-times about Police being
"emboldened" unless "reform" happened
hard, fast and right now.

What in the entire world-wide FUCK
are those two simpletons jaw-jacking about?

Emboldened to do what, exactly?

There's no emboldening happening on the
Police side of this so far unsolvable equation.

Heh... If there's any emboldening going on,
it's being loudly and vividly manifested
by Dude Inc. with a willing assist by
the SJWs and local media.

Emboldened like a M/Fer.

The main swing-dicks and hang-tits are
crying about The Police allegedly being
emboldened by POTUS and USAG making a
very reasonable decision to pump the brakes
on the progressive's favorite anti-Police
political terror weapon. The vehicle borne
improvised explosive device used to destroy
urban Police departments.

The Consent Decree.

>Pfffft!<
Emboldened?

In a dead dog's hockey dot, you morons...

The prophets of Ba'al, after their prayers
didn't elicit the desired response, took to
disrobing, dancing,chanting, crying and
cutting themselves with sharp flints
and obsidians to "make something happen."

Just like them, you haters are ass out,
dancing around crying and cutting
yourselves because "something isn't being
done about The Police."

Meanwhile, your constituents are a plague
of biblical proportions on the upright
and law abiding citizenry they're being
an affliction to.

Hopefully, POTUS and USAG turns the full
might of federal law enforcement against YOU
and your allies.

No... That's not racist at all.

As a black man in Chicago, a law abiding, working, tax paying citizen I will say this. Fuck you to the assholes who disagree with me. The cops are not the problem. There are areas of the city I refuse to visit now at night. Fuck that. When I see three or four young black men, not only do I cross the street but my hands are on my phone ready to call for the cops. Being fully aware and alert will save you. These young hoodlums today know two things, due to their age, they are going home soon. Second, no matter what, even if by the luck of the courts they get jail time, it will not be long. We are fucked and the only question is what do you prefer, Carmex or lube. Again the cops are not the problem. Show me a case where the cops fucked someone up just going home from work or going to school? Just one? I will rest my case and wait for this.

I was wrong it is a job more complicated than a cashier but not quite as hard as a surgeon.

My customers are asshole,lawyers, and politicians.
Since i receive no BONUS cash for customer service they are treated in a humane way.
I dont get reward for taking more reports or getting to crime scene faster.
Promotion are rigged and sample test are given to relatives of exempt criminals.

I have supervisors who lose felony folder then retire laughing to the bank.

I have a chief who never applied for the job and was put in with his limited skills

But overall i am still fine and focus on my family and my real business.

Paul Penzone the Democratic Sheriff of Phoenix and Maricopa County is now undoing all of Sheriff Joe's policies and the "Tent City" . No more pink underwear and no more strict enforcement of immigration policies. So Phoenix is heading toward Sanctuary City status headed by a Dumbocrat Sheriff any guess which way the crime stats and murder rate are headed ?

Here is perfect opportunity to document the epic failure of the Democrats law and order policies.............

Waht a headline from liberal Chicago breaking news:

Two shot in South Austin: 'The world needs to see it'

Excerpt:Stokes broadcast the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook Live.

"The world needs to see it," he said while holding his phone.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-chicago-shootings-violence-20170404-story.html

Ahh OK could someone please tell the young lad just turn on fox world news it is there for all to see constantly Chiraq crime off the charts who caused this? As the former U.S. attorney here Zach Fardon places the blame clearly where it belongs on Rahm and his crew "policing on the cheap" it starts there then detours into "crazy tonis" office and then to Tommy "i like puppy dogs dart" The threesome, the evil cabal that hates law and order and prefers to pander to the thugs and illegal invaders. Rahm even going as far as using millions in Chicago taxpayers rebate money and freely giving it to connected lawyers to represent the illegal felons to keep them here creating more havoc!

Then we have the judges in crook county how to be a crook county judge easy steps:

1) decide to run
2) call clout
3) donate to political organizations
4) appear before alderman/committee man
5) Sit down and and agree to be the puppet and respond to their decisions during trails.
6) your on ballot and pushed
7) your a made man/woman

Corrution at its best!

Rahm caved to DOJ to cover his misconduct and involvement in the suppression of the McDonald video! He transferred the Heat onto the police department. NO STUDY HAS YET STATISTICALLY PROVEN THAT RACIAL PROFILING WAS A STRATEGY OR INSTITUTIONALIZED IN THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT. Chicago remains one of the most segregated cities in the North today, as it did when Martin Luther King called it that in the 1960's! If you work in: 011, 003, 007, 006, 015, most of the people you stop will be people of Color! Unless they are Whites who made a wrong turn, or are looking to cop dope or some Forbidden "Chocolate Fantasy". The Police were fed to DOJ and the police hating ACLU to appease the Black Community and divert attention from Rahm's Suppression of the McDonald video. Could anyone have possibly believed, that the leader of Police Haters like BLM, would have the Superintendent of Police on Speed Dial! And that the Superintendent, would give that leader of chaos, police policy before it is given to the rank and file? Nobody, absolutely nobody, could have imagined the Chicago Police Department being held in such Contempt and low esteem by its Own Government. But it may be too late! The CPD has been betrayed, and the trust may take a generation to return. Meanwhile, killing will continue in the minority communities, virtually unabated. And Rahm remains in Office, a little longer, sort of like him, Very Little, Longer. Baby "G"

This mess cannot be fixed in Chicago for at least a generation. And, then it will take a fed-up citizenry to elect a totally new administration in the city and in the county, an administration that has a law and order attitude and a real desire to provide real job training for at risk youths. Now, whenever some democrat politician calls for " anti-violence" funds and job training funds , they are secretly smacking their lips thinking about all the money they will get for themselves.

Why are there still people out there who continue to be proactive in today's political unrest?
Besides the upcoming snowflake summer protests, peace marches, festivals that will strain manpower, the thugs will be scattered far and wide shooting one another, wouldn't it make sense to deflect that political unrest to the elected officials and not us?
This is the same stuff that happens in any country run by corrupt warlords.

De-policing apparently is sporadic at best.
Way too many exceptional ghetto goobers still chasing cars and shots fired calls looking to be the next merit promotee.
These are the merit numbskulls telling goobs to bring in activity at their own expense.

Fire departments do not patrol because they are placed strategically to be able to get TO fires. Ambulances deploy the same way. Policing is just different in that regard. Somewhere along the line, politicians decided to make policing "profitable". You know, rather than have them costing taxpayer dollars, have that funding produce revenue streams in! Screw that, the "return" on this investment is supposed to Criminals in PRISON (and in the dirt) not revenue neutral or profitable!

Take "prevention". By its very definition it is the opposite of what police are FOR! Think it through....guilty until proven innocent, when the best you can EVER get is "not guilty". If you PREVENT a crime, it means a crime did NOT HAPPEN. If there is no crime, then there is no law broken, right? SO how is it you are arresting someone when there was no crime? See it yet? See the Pure Idiocy of the "prevention" moniker? Come On. Don't say you don't see it, stop hiding your eyes trying to claim you can't see it. It is right there in front of you.

While you are out there being conned by the "prevention" drama, real people are being robbed, raped and murdered. While you are writing tickets and searching cars because you "smelled something", a 14 year old girl is being raped, literally slave traded like her body is a commodity to be sold by her "owner". Another is being brutally tortured, and killed. People's homes are broke into, their things stolen - and you never have time to finger print the scene....gotta write them tickets and pull over some more cars with tail light violations, right? Gotta, "get those guns off the street", right? Uh huh. Take a good REAL look around - the whole "prevention" angle is CON, and yall fell for it (some of you still do). You are being distracted away from functioning in your real role. And you have been cajoled into being the ones who break the Supreme Law the most...you miss the fact that everyone watches you operate without warrants, and hears you call doing so 'good police work".

You are only fooling yourselves. Ask yourselves...when was the last BLM hater crowd protest levied against cops acting on warrants? Gee, have ya even noticed that factor? That bunch runs from warrant serving cases faster than Usain Bolt! Why? Because they KNOW there is nothing they can say when GOOD COPS operate on WARRANTS. Look at what you do each day - and ask yourselves.....how much of your day is spent on "Terry stops" and how much of your day is spent on warrants? Then read this -

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

No, it is not reasonable for you to walk up to someone, put your hands in their pockets and rifle through their possessions just because you think you can. IF you want to search them pockets, then get a warrant, and if you have cause, then you should have no trouble GETTING one. If the problem claimed is the TIME it takes to get one, well, first we can point to JUDGES NOT DOING THEIR JOBS and second we can say if it is THAT time sensitive then what is the "crime" in the first place??

Yes, cops have to be able to interact with the community. Exactly the same way, with as much or more truth to it, you HAVE to HONOR the RIGHTS of the people. After all that is the HEART of YOUR JOB in the first place - THAT is what you are supposed to be Protecting and Serving! It seems to me that some have forgotten that right there but I sure hope you peeps start remembering sooner rather than later.

Peer approval means everything in a police environment. Officers naturally seek approval from their peers. Back when policing was fun and aggressive policing earned you the approval of your peers, it was worth it to go out and be an aggressive officer. Now, most officers don't approve of this mentality anymore. And for good reason. Aggressive police work won't get you a DC or an honorable anymore... It will get you indicted. So, staying fetal is what earns the approval of your peers these days.

And I don't see it changing anytime soon. Not until liberals get their collective heads out of their asses and realizing that their "politically correct" mindset is getting people killed, literally.

I hear from citizens on the West Side every day begging and pleading for us to get more aggressive. They want us to go back to the "old way" of doing things.

Sorry folks, your mayor and your Democrat representatives don't care about you enough to risk their political careers. No matter how many of you get killed.

My only advice to the citizens of Chicago who actually want the violence to stop, is to vote Republican... Or, at the very least, vote out the incumbent.

Jokes aside, thanks for your support and I personally feel horrible that my inactions will lead to the victimization of good people like yourself. I'm truly sorry about that. It's not by our own choice but you'd have to be a moron to stop the bad guys like we used to. And even if you did, it would be like taking the losing odds of a bet with your life. I agree SCC but after the last couple of years, even if the support turned around overnight and everyone supported us I would never trust the media, shady judges, attorneys and snowflakes again. I think the societal damage is too profound to ever go back to "hunting" real criminals.

Here we go, snowflake.... You know what it's like to be a Chicago cop, obviously. I fucking wish I could take idiots like you on the streets so you could teach me the ways of...listening/responding to a radio. Before all of this bullshit good police work was a stop where you did a stop on a shithead holding his waistband, side eying you and pulling his pants up in an area known for gang violence. You jump out and he runs, you get a GUN AND DANGEROUS OFFENDER off the streets before he can shot, kill or rob anyone or the same happening to him. Then you can interview him for Intel to get those SWs you mention, find out players, etc. Now? Now we follow your brilliant method of policing; don't write those silly tickets, search those cars for guns, etc. Just wait for someone to get shot and respond to the stale radio call.

How about when someone is shot and the offender(s) take off in a car and it passes by you but the radio call comes out two minutes later? Oopsie snowflake, that care is long gone. Maybe you should've made that stupid stop. Say you do make the stop and the incident occurred on a separate zone so you don't know about the broadcast. According to you we shouldn't search the car. The driver and passengers are all compliant and nice with face tatts. So you don't search their car for "no reason." Good job on letting murderer go.

Trust me snowflake, you're better at policing than we are. We are all taking your advise now, idiot. We don't put hands on people or toss cars, we only respond to radio calls. Just give it some time. Your way will lower the crime rate.

So I respond to a call of a CSA just occurred and a man matching the description is walking down the alley away from address of occurrence, get a warrant? I'm patrolling in an area where there is a burglary pattern and see an individual exiting a yard into an alley carrying a pillow case full of possible proceeds, get a warrant?

I could go on but evidently you are smarter then everyone else. I sure hope you don't work in 016, they are short enough and we dont need and Warrant Police up here.

And please stop comparing firemen to policemen. They are two very distinct jobs. Both are inherently dangerous. Policemen have a far greater burden placed on them then firemen.

Police need to be able to read, write and articulate in reports and while testifying in court. This is why when you look up the postion of police officer on the City of Chicago website we are listed as a professional and should be required to have some additional education.

Fireman on the other hand are listed as laborers. Yes that right a physical job without the needed thought process that policemen are put in everyday.

This is the reason why officer's salaries should be far great then fireman. Me too my ass.
I know I signed up for the job of police officer but that does not mean every fireman can ride on my back. Enjoy your part time job and be happy for what you have but stop comparing yourselves to police officers. You want what we have then take the test.

As a black man in Chicago, a law abiding, working, tax paying citizen I will say this. Fuck you to the assholes who disagree with me. The cops are not the problem. There are areas of the city I refuse to visit now at night. Fuck that. When I see three or four young black men, not only do I cross the street but my hands are on my phone ready to call for the cops. Being fully aware and alert will save you. These young hoodlums today know two things, due to their age, they are going home soon. Second, no matter what, even if by the luck of the courts they get jail time, it will not be long. We are fucked and the only question is what do you prefer, Carmex or lube. Again the cops are not the problem. Show me a case where the cops fucked someone up just going home from work or going to school? Just one? I will rest my case and wait for this.
