"Impasse" is about Control

And Groot doesn't want to give up any sort of control:

  • Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s plan to fill the missing link in police reform hit a snag days before the stay-at-home shutdown triggered by the coronavirus.

    The 11th-hour disagreement between the mayor and the Grassroots Alliance for Police Accountability was over who would have the final say on police policy whenever there was a disagreement between the civilian oversight board and the Chicago Police Department.

    The mayor’s version made her the final arbiter. The Grassroots Alliance insisted the seven-member civilian oversight board be empowered to impose its will on policy, even when the CPD and the mayor disagree.

    Now the mayor is declaring an impasse, saying she intends to move forward with her version of civilian police review. Ald. Chris Taliaferro (29th), the former Chicago Police officer who chairs the City Council’s Committee on Public Safety, said he’s had a “change of heart” and now sides with the mayor.

Politicians don't give up power willingly. So Groot isn't about to let a board of civilians decide the fate of politically connected cops who get caught dirty. Its the unconnected who get suspended and fired, not future aldercreatures who get caught on video stealing cell phones. She also isn't going to let them undercut future choices for Supernintendos.

What did Groot promise Chris to back her play?

Be real. You don’t think they won’t stack a Civilian Police Accountability Committee with politically connected people or for that matter that major backscratching won’t happen as a means of a committee being on the side of a politically connected exempt? I see all kinds of ways to manipulate this non-sense.

First off, Larri is easily outsmarted and fooled. Enter Tellafairyo (Mr. Creosote) - bonafide chickenshit sellout.

Larri LightLoafer ran the IPRA, was on the Police Board, and somehow in between career moves, managed the City Procurement Office, you know the one that buys poor third party goods and services PPE for use by First Responders.

The Grassroots outfit is nothing more than a bigmouth leech that wants a catch every now and then to justify the budget. Larri doesn’t need a bigmouth to talk over her own bad ideas and retributions.
These people are after her job, Larri has a air of Machine in her and is ripe for ousting.
Larri LightLoafer needs allies and perhaps a confidant or two. Learning the hard way that constant bellyaching and blaming doesn’t and won’t work, since her likelihood of re-election or approval rating at this time isn’t that important, she’s being told to apply her wickedness to,the fullest. She’s too stupid to understand she’s being set up.

Whoever ran her with her campaign might be her best policy adviser.
Whoever didn’t bother to vote (only about 50,000) or fringe candidates learned a lesson that’s likely will be forgotten 3 years from now.

So the thief Alderman from his days at the Chicago police Department has a full staff of people around him multi million dollar budget given to him by the lying cheating mayor no wonder why he wants to agree with everything she or he says! The swamp hair is so dirty it pales in comparison to absolutely anything even a third world countries are clean or less corrupt in here.

Here is what I have learned as I have been the police for over 25 years. There is no such thing as "POLICE BRUTALITY", there is no such thing as "THE BLUE CODE OF SILENCE"(however, it was an excellent movie), there is NOT nor has there ever been a "PATTERN OF PRACTICE" by the police to keep anyone down and I do not care what the DOJ said! However, there has been corruption and systemic RACISM brought by 93 years of Democratic rule in this City of Chicago and around the USA by the Democrats and in every city they have governed. The Democrats told the police, "Get those people out of my Park!" back in 1968, and we did, the Democrats even told the police to get those gangbangers off the street corners and in front of businesses through the decades of 1970 all the way through 2014, and we did. In fact the "PATTERN OF PRACTICE" has always been doing what the DEMOCRATS TOLD US TO DO, and like good public servants we did what we were told to do because it was "OUR JOB". So why is the Chicago Police Department under a "CONSENT DECREE"? Again, I do not get it, and further more, "WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT?!"

Groot is scared shitless of this Police Hating,
politically, socially and culturally weaponized
outrage mob gaining a firm enough grasp on control
of this city as to render Groot moot and mute.

To Progressives, it ain't funny when THEIR creation
slips it's leash, swap ends and begins tearing THEIR
tender ass-meat from the bone.

Their creation was supposed to only attack
and afflict YOU and YOURS.

That big, ugly, multi-titted, crown-wearing
critter with the teeth like broken mirror glass.


"Uhhh... Oh shit...
Good doggy?"

>Frantic Running Footsteps<



>Blood Sweat Tears Piss Shit<

Liberal loon mayors nationwide are facing the very real
and surreal threat of their home grown outrage mobs
chasing THEM down and publicly burning THEM at the stake.

The most amusing and ironic virtue signaling
and purity testing since the Reign of Terror.

This time?

Instead of written word, the pending shit-show
will be forever on the "cloud" for all posterity
to retrieve and see...

The Policeman laughs his ass off at the spectacle.

As these final days tick by I am afraid that the Democratic mob will win.
They are much more passionate and driven than any conservative. They prove a good point by calling out the White middle class; Whites have been too consumed by their pursuit of money, their entertainment, and their equality PC religion to really pay attention to what is happening.

They never protest over black on white crime. They never protest when their conservative politicians fail them or betray them on issues of importance. They never boycott or resign from companies who finance their enemies. It never occurs to them (or they are too busy to care) that their children are being indoctrinated by marxists in public schools and universities. It never occurs to them that when you import the 3rd world, you become the third world.

They won't realize what happened until they are a minority in their own nation. Pray for hope, Trump/Pence 2020

It's not over until it's over so don't lose faith. There are many conservatives out there speaking against the democratic terrorism. Many many more are scared silent, and are deeply concerned is my opinion.

You are right, apathy has led to this mess, and people are waking up to it. I just hope it is in time. Many 11th hour awakenings are too late.

Conservatives I do believe will never be a minority, but if the majority of them have not woke up in time, it will be too late and their voices wont matter. I say this time by 2022, if Biden and the demonrats wins, the first and second amendment will either have been made nul due to tyrannical pressure on corporations which we are already starting to see, this time though it would be federal pressure. Or those two amendments may just be done away with all together.

I am fully well aware that the nation is continually moving more left, which is terrifying. And I think its getting to the point people are finally seeing the warnings many of us have been carrying on with only to be called crazy for decades. I think many many are weary of the lies, betrayals and everything else. But what do you expect when the Marxists are able to start taking over universities and corporations wholesale.

I will be voting straight R but, IMHO, Dan Bongino says it best "The Republicans may not be the solution to all of these problems but the Democrats are the reason for all these problems."

I am voting straight R ballot in case the election goes to the House. Then the state legislatures will determines where each states one vote goes.

This could be a possible scenario for the election. For example, the new congress will start on 01/04/21. If there is an electoral college tie or of there is enough chaos from mail-in-vote-fraud that neither candidate gets to 270 electors because some states loose their electors on Dec 14 then the House decides by one-vote per state determined by the party of each state legislature. Right now there are 26 R state legislatures. She thinks they will flip 2 so she is determined to go the chaos route plus delays until Jan 4.

Speaking of that, with the POTUS/HOUSE/SENATE, they can pass legislation taking the voting for Senator going to the State legislature as opposed to popular vote.

ALSO, with respect to the mail in voting scam, the Republican state congress should change the voting process to eliminate all mail-in voting to Solicited ballots. Paperwork for the Solicited ballots will include a request at the county court house with legitimate identification (no electric bill) and a signature to be matched to the absentee ballot before allowing the vote to count. If someone can’t do that once every 2 to 4 years then there’s no reason they should be allowed to vote. And i almost forgot... a clear thumb or index finger print for identification along with the government issued ID card with a mug shot on it.

I can't give current figures because I have been retired for nearly 10 years, but around the time of my retirement here in Michigan, it cost 35,000 per year to incarcerate a felon. We can't afford to lock them all up. The idea of imprisonment as a punishment has not been the case for most of history. At the time our country was founded, there were nearly 300 crimes for which a person was just killed. The lawless do not appreciate how good they have had it.

Violent criminals being incarcerated then turned loose by Foxx makes no sense. Never has. More things need to be capital offenses.

Not to worry. After President Trump begins his second term, we'll flush them down the drainage pipes along with the sewage. The President is not afraid to say "Law and Order" unlike Creepy Joe Biden.

By the way, do you folks know Joe & Hunter Biden have an outstanding arrest warrant(s) pending in the Ukraine. Apparently Ukrainian authorities have notified INTERPOL they intend to arrest the Biden boys if he even step on European soil. I'm going to have to keep a close watch on that development.

Dang, we have a potential felon running for President.
