New York? Again?

  • An assistant inspector general riding herd over the New York Police Department has been chosen to serve as Chicago’s deputy inspector general for public safety. Joseph Lipari replaces Laura Kunard, who resigned from the $137,052-a-year job in January after just six months on the job.

    Kunard’s sudden resignation was a setback to the ongoing and monumental effort to reform the Chicago Police Department after the police shooting of Laquan McDonald. It was also an embarrassment to Inspector General Joe Ferguson, who chose her after a painstaking search. It forced Ferguson to conduct yet another nationwide search. On Thursday, the inspector general announced he has found his man in Lipari, who must be confirmed by the City Council.

    [...] Lipari’s background appears to make him uniquely qualified to bird-dog the Chicago Police Department, particularly at a time when Chicago is still struggling to decide what form civilian review should take.

    Ferguson said his choice led investigations into NYPD’s “Use-of-Force reporting, Crisis Intervention Team training and dispatch procedures, and inefficiencies in NYPD’s complaint tracking system.” Lipari was also responsible for supervising staff, and coordinating with the investigations unit.
Another carpetbagger comes to town.

This speaks volumes as to not having confidence in ANY CPD Leadership to fill the job.

Well, that's what you get in a cloutocracy. No real leaders in leadership positions - just Yes-men. No real skills.

There’s no shortage of douchebags from New York, which was voted worst state for one to retire.

Mr. Lipari, welcome to Chicago. Here's a little political primer about your new gig. All of the stakeholders want you to know: "You're not my guy, and you know that I know that you know, that I know that you know, your not my guy." Got it?

Rahm reveres all things New York. He will do ANYTHING if the label 'New York' is affixed to it.
We ARE NOT NEW YORK. The New York ethos doesn't play well in Chicago.

They poached the second-in-command at COPA from NYPD's COPA-equivalent and he was not even here for six months. They come and leave ASAP after finding out this place is a real mess.

The smoke stinks, the mirrors have been cracked for decades, yet the scam remains the same.

No solutions to the scam of perpetual problems being the bread and butter of politicians.

Never let the opportunity to fake a crisis pass by without exploitation.

Never diminish a problem that can be exagerated, then exploited.

Never, ever solve a problem, neither a naturally occuring problem, nor an artificially created problem, nor a politically fabricated and exagerated problem.

Politics 101.

McCarthy and his side kick, Dick Tracy were enough of the J.O' from NYC to come to Chicago and run a circus freak show that destroyed CPD.

Now the idiot IG hires another NYC sanitation worker to come here and fuck the city up a little more. How about that name changed Mayor of NYC take the village idiot Mr. Ed, the taking goat, to run the NYPD. He and Sharpton can do wonders working together......and take the phony priest and his commie cardinal to start a mission in Harlem !

Bring back Jody and he will rebuild the destruction Street lights and special Ed did to make CPD become a 3 rd. world LE outfit. If anyone can name anything these two did to benefit CPD street coppers and dicks, please speak up.

He is here for one reason and one reason only to continue the destruction of the Chicago police department. He is here just like Gary was here to make a name for himself, he will throw any police officer under the bus when you look at Joey Ferguson a man who is given on a SilverPlatter the cheating examination evidence for the lieutenants exam and couldn’t find anything you can bet that the new guy from New York will be finding everything and anything against a police officer that has absolutely no clout.

I know Kunard from UIC. She thought the job was legit and that she’d be helping CPD and the City. Then that jagoff Ferguson told her what to do. She did the right thing by getting out.

Guys, face it. The CPD is a second rate PD. Has been for years. It can't hold a candle to LAPD and NYPD when it comes to professionalism and competency. Which is why they must import from those two places if there is any hope for improvement and making CPD a real Police Department. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is what it is.

we don't need to be reformed - we've got it - don't stop blacks more than whites (though perfectly legit), don't use force in an arrest that doesn't look good on camera (though perfectly legit) - really what else is there here Rahm? Seriously. Oh, maybe this - let forensics solve crime (though it rarely does). Let shotspotters and POD cameras do the heavy lifting (though they rarely do), because the "force" must be taken out of Police Force. Oh, and maybe one more - the political leaders should cowtow to the fake fathers when they threaten (and do!) violate the law, else force may have to be use to affect justice. Oh, and maybe one more - respect the unwritten, and unspoken, monday morning quarterback-inspired "duty to retreat." (ok that last one was more COPA's fault than Eddie Johnson's but the point remains).

Ya, Rahm - I think we've got it. It's Fake News dating all the way back to Ferguson, MO. And WE"VE GOT IT. LOUD AND CLEAR.

Is he going to investigate davina Ward as Ferguson was asked by first IPRA, then COPA to do? He is another Rahm tool. Ferguson is pure scum. FBI has been contacted. I will contact the new guy in Monday.

We basically have a low IQ nonpaid community of activists, all taking turns dumping their ideas of Dept policy.
Now it’s time to pay another someone six figures to configure the ideal mound of bullshit into a paradigm of trust, like robin robinson is doing.
Who’s going to be the Phfriar Phfelcher-JJJSr communitay liaisons?

Here a chief, there a chief, everyone’s a chief chief.
Oh Rahmie commie had a city...
e-i-e-i-o.

I’m tired of counting.
Another failed Rahm appointment.
The bills keep coming,
and the bodies keep piling up.

Ferguson traded his "I don't see nothing wrong with the Lie-tenant's test report", for a job guarantee from our lying rat Mayor. End of story. He nor any decisions he makes are not to be trusted by any honest person.

I can suggest a number of Chicago leaders who might want this job:

Michael Pfleger
Jesse Jackson Sr.
Louis Farrakhan

...just for starters.

Lapd = policing nitwits and knuckleheads spread over an area the size of the small country it is. More like policing multiple tribal regions than policing an actual city.

Nypd = policing perps and skells incestuosly packed like rats into the appropriately named "burrows", seperated by natural, geological barriers to unimpeded scurrying to and fro.

CPD = An actual city. With sub urban towns not truly suburban, being connected seamlessly with the city neighborhoods street defined boundries.

The la and nyc police are more akin to branches of a fat trunked tree, the fat trunk supporting the branches, with the option of any twig being shed for the benefit of the tree.

The Chicago police are a giant potato, by politician intent, with the leafy stalk appearing so flurishing, the multiple root hairs being expendable at whim and the fat, starchy main mass existing to grow ever fatter with each passing day.

The tree analogy works minimally well in these spread out, psuedo cities, as the trunk protects itself, it's main branches and endures.

The potato analogy exemplifies the vulnerabilities inherent in a plant form intended solely to fatten the core of itself.

Our politicians are not even as smart as a potato, so, here we are.

Anyone local will owe allegiance to whomever allowed him to achieve his present lofty position. Skill and ability will have no bearing on the chosen one. The only skill and ability needed is a skill at lieing and the ability to tell lies with a straight face. Anyone not local will have to make a pact with the devil aka Rahm to get the job. Either way you and the city take it in the ass again. The only hope the city has is that the voters elect new people top to bottom and depending on voters in Chicago is like playing Russian Roulette with 5 out of 6 chambers loaded. So what is the answer? Put the city in the rear view and wish those left behind good luck you have the government you deserve after all you voted for them or didn't vote because ?????
