The Next Move?

The Department, at the direction of Rahm, has already restricted days off all summer. They've canceled certain teams from even having two consecutive days off for months at a time and we don't doubt days off are going to be canceled during certain weekends. Baltimore has come up with a novel idea:
  • Baltimore sees multiple deadly shootings in just a matter of hours. It was a burst of violence that forced the commissioner to make a drastic move today.

    All uniformed officers will be on mandatory 12-hour shifts, as the city hustles to control the crime.

    Ava-joye Burnett reports the violence spilled over from the night into broad daylight today.

    After a violent night, the police department announced a plan on how to address this problem, as the Police Commissioner was angered by the violence.
A "burst of violence" is a daily occurrence around these parts.

And daylight mayhem? Got that covered!

What triggered this extreme step?
  • The violence in Baltimore started Monday evening and lasted through the night. It spilled over into the middle of Tuesday and by the end of it all, at least 12 people had been shot and at least six dead.
So 6 dead and 6 wounded in 36 hours?

Chicago had 30 shot in a mere 9 hours this past weekend. And although Baltimore's kill percentage was much higher (50%), the Windy City is still averaging over 2.5 dead per day:


So take an exhausted demoralized Department and force them to work an additional four hours a day - we're sure Baltimore will be getting top effort out of their burned-out officers.

Baltimore is imploding.

They have about 55% of the number of homicides Chicago has but only about 27% of the population.

So their murder rate is about double Chicago's. Scary to think what ours would be if not for our CFD EMTs and ER staffs.

And there is no end in sight and no one has any possible solutions.

The war on police has had unintended consequences.

The toll that will take on their police can be enormous. The citizens of Baltimore had better have a heart for their police. There will be some blowup.

I would be good with 12s as long as its the normal 3 on 3 off. But with this department it will just be 12s with all rdos cancelled.
Had two co workers find new jobs in the last month. Everyone is jumping ship.

Gonna be a whole bunch of p.o. 'ed Baltimore polices with the 12 hour days. From the posted stats, we'd best not have a pistol competition between them (folks) and our Folk. Their kill ratio makes me wonder if the city administration is forcing range training on their shooters?

The Dept wants an officer that is in top notch shape physically and mentally yet they continue to force unreasonable hours and shifts. All this does is impair an officer's mental and physical ability; create a cycle of fatigue; limit job performance and damage an officer's health.

You can have the police work 24 hours straight , but if the police don't do any type of proactive work than what's the point. You can thank the Obama administration and the BLM movement and of course the liberal media for fanning the non existent flames of police misconduct. Now these idiots want the police to work with no days off and work more hours than usual , well guess what ? You cancel me and extend my tour I will be snoozing in the closest hole , because I got the memo that the police are evildoers and if the police fuck up well then they will be punished. They will be punished far more severe than the average gangbanger or dope dealer even more severe than murderers . So go ahead and cancel and extent , if you're looking for me I'll be counting sheep as the simulcast on the city wide stays unavailable .

The 12 hour shift concept is used extensively in the south. One week work 4 12 hour shifts, Next week 3 12 hour shifts.

example: Work: FRI, SAT, SUN - Off: Mon & Tues - Work: Wed & Thurs, Off: FRI, SAT, SUN.

Throw in a late call or two can be a real downer, but roll calls are quick as on/off shift at 6AM / 6PM on the dot to prevent OT.

Easier to take a couple hours vacation / comp time during shift if needed for doctors, kid's activities, etc. Also get more weekends off. Does hinder outside work activities on work day rotations, (i.e., part time or social). And depending on where one resides the trip to and from can be significant. Many FL officers often live a county or two away from where they work as FL has the ability to "float" from department to department.

But the "bear factor" comes out after a 3 day work rotation such as FRI, SAT & SUN on days with 95 degree heat the entire shift!

This is what happens when you celebrate and honor the thug. Give the thug social services,money and the "Please be good" speech. The thug, being what a thug is,laughs and takes and continues being a thug.
The impression all these social warriors give is that if you are born poor, you are entitled to act like an asshole.
In my career, I have met many more good people who lived in situations that are not great economically. I knew it, they knew it, but it didn't define them.
Sadly,the good decent people who had to live next to thugs are being left behind again.

Imagine this scenario: You are a corrupt politician up to your eyeballs in sleazy deals and tax thefts that have screwed over thousands of hardworking people. You've supported policies that have created a feral underclass with absolutely no usefulness whatsoever other than their ability to pull the levers at the voting booth, a group that requires massive amounts of gov't gimmies or else they will burn the city to ashes in a murderous rage.

WHY, then, on God's green earth, would an idiot politician in this position (trapped between pissed off producers and pissed of parasites) choose to shit on the one force that maintains some semblance of order in their rapidly failing community, the police? Why would you screw them over and throw them under the bus? If it was me, I'd be giving cops gold plated everything in the hopes that they'd stick around and maintain order so that my head wouldn't end up on a pike. The last thing on earth I'd want in that position is a police department that is withdrawn and angry due to management abuses (healthcare debacle, pandering to BLM, etc) and worries about the solvency of their pensions, etc.

I guess it is just one more proof that the people in charge truly are either retarded or insane. In a failing city, dedicated, good cops are the most valuable asset you have. Typical of liberals to not be blind to that simple reality.

But then again today Baltimore is on Drudge world/international news headline:

Baltimore Nearing 160 Homicides Less Than Halfway Through 2017

http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2017/06/14/baltimore-homicides/

From hey jackass.com

Shot & Killed: 273
Shot & Wounded: 1267
Total Shot: 1540
Total Homicides: 289

Hmm Baltimore better step it up, but notice how we have a complete national news blackout on chiraq murder and mayhem! Wonder if rahms brother Trumps former hollywood buddy asked the world media to stop reporting and asked Trump to stop talking about Chicago massive murder carnage and mayhem?

Then we have this headline:

Trump’s pledge to wipe out MS-13 gang paying off in NY

http://nypost.com/2017/06/14/trumps-pledge-to-wipe-out-ms-13-gang-paying-off-in-ny/

While the gang cowardly punks in Chicago are using assult rifles to murder and maim where is all the promised federal help? national guard? We are definitely the "forgotten men and women" and to the citizens that are pro-police better speak out in favor of us, the thin Blue line is being decimated by the elected and the savages being pandered to! God bless the police job #1 is protect Blue and their entire family everyone else here is the "secret" number 312-744-3300 rahms office and call your alderman you want to protest don't be scared look up aldermans home address and office you want results they caused all of this time for them to be held accountable finally!

You think people are not stressed out but this? How many people have that "just 1 more thing and I am going to do something attitude?" The elected here have created a powder keg, the solution is to boot them out of office next round. Better yet demand that since they are carrying law enforcement style badges, when you family is killed or maimed make them personally responsible to go out and patrol the fish stinks from the head down and they are the head!!

Hello from Baltimore. Have become a regular reader of your site. The stories you publish here could just as easily be posted by the cops in Baltimore.

Patrol units in Baltimore already work a 10 hour shift. The 2 extra hours are coming on the back end of their shifts now. All leave on Saturday has apparently been cancelled. Not sure how long that will be in effect.

Keep up the great work.

OT -

Seattle passed a tax on guns and ammo in 2016 to help defray the cost of shootings. What has actually happened? Exactly what everyone with half a brain thought. The number of shootings in Seattle has actually gone up, while legitimate gun shops struggle to stay open. Gun stores outside of Seattle has seen business surge. It was supposed to bring in $300-$500k a year, but has only brought in a little over $100k. A link to the full article is below:

According to the commander and XO of 011 more ISR's are needed out of second watch to combat the uptick in shootings. We all had a good chuckle than proceeded to answer our jobs and go home safe. These imbeciles just don't get it, they want activity, they want us to put our livelihood at risk just for the sake of numbers. It won't be put on paper but you better believe it's insinuated at every rollcall, bring in ISR's or else.
