Very Interesting

So the Sun Times has an article up about Lori's new head of security:
  • In a break with tradition, Mayor Lori Lightfoot will hire a retired deputy U.S. marshal to run her security detail, with one mayoral aide noting that “it’s a dangerous time in our country.” Police Supt. Eddie Johnson on Monday told the Chicago Sun-Times, “We don’t really comment on executive protection, but at the end of the day the mayor has to be comfortable with her detail.”

    Johnson said he believes Lightfoot has confidence in the police. “This is her police department now,” he said.

    The retired deputy marshal is James M. Smith, a managing member of a private security company called Silver Star Protection. Smith declined comment Monday.
And buried at the end of the Sun Times article where no one would think to read that far, this little tidbit:
  • In 2016, Smith was mentioned in a Sun-Times story about former law-enforcement officials with ties to the medical-marijuana industry.
  • As cops, part of their jobs was to put away drug sellers and users. Now, former law enforcement officials are doing private security work for Illinois’ now-legal medical marijuana industry.

    [...] James Smith, a former U.S. Marshals Service inspector who spent nearly 30 years with the federal agency who is a managing member of Silver Star Protection Group.
So, Lori's head of security is 
  • in a city that pretty much decriminalized weed, making it a ticket
  • in a County that refuses to prosecute weed offenses
  • in a State that is making huge strides toward complete legalization of weed
  • running a security company that makes money protecting weed operations
Seems like the connected are still making money by being connected.

Who the hell cares who she uses as body guards or if any at all. I think it’s good that she’s not using CPD. It’s time to start putting cops back on the street. Question...Will Rahm still have body guards? He shouldn’t. Hopefully she also gets rid of useless units and house mice and puts them back too. There’s SO MANY silly useless units wasting manpower. Put them back into patrol. Start trimming the exempts and also getting rid of all the entitled people with take home cars. Put the cars back into the patrol fleet. Save a ton on purchasing of vehicles. No one should have a take home car unless it’s a covert. Drive to work in your own cars. If she really wants to save money there’s plenty to cut on the CPD. As far as cannabis goes, it’s time to legalize it and make money on it. It’s going that way anyhow in America. So let’s get started. No one prosecutes it anyway.

I was hoping when they lead the swearing in with prayer. Lightning would have struck all the DemocRATS who have destroyed the place. Which would have been all on stage and in the crowd. It would have been a modern day verified miracle......... I was hoping we could add a modern day event and update the spiritual books! I will continue to pray for help and for evil to be vanquished!

Off topic. Wilding Somali Style.

“A 9:48 p.m. Facebook post on 2nd Precinct Minneapolis Crime Watch page said that University of Minnesota (U of M) police were requesting assistance from Minneapolis police (MPD) and Metro Transit police for “a group of 8-10 males chasing people with hammers” and that some people were injured. A Facebook post a minute later on Minneapolis Scanner page said that the three police departments were responding to “multiple [911] calls” about “10-12 Somali teen males armed with hammers chasing people,” also with “several injuries reported.” Both Facebook pages regularly post summaries of police scanner audio.”

No contract, no police.

Stay fetal and don't expect any good treatment. These ex feds will teach ya'll how to be police.

The new queen is swinging her scepter. Remember she met with nutsy peelousy. Nothing good is ahead for any of us, LEO or civvy.

Back in '96 or '97, when OEMC was created, the P/O's (who got D-2 pay)and were "Dispatchers" were transferred there. Some were assigned there, but a lot were put in Districts. Then they abolished the job and all were back to D-1 pay. They grieved the reduction in pay, and won. They kept the D-2 pay for the rest of their careers, no matter where they were assigned. So there is a precedent for the Security Specialists to grieve when their jobs are abolished. They may keep that D-3 pay pushing a Beat car.

Not to be too critical but you go from Cook County Jail guard and to being a United States Marshal, then you are running a security company with a huge contract with the marijuana dispensaries and growers. Just wondering what does everyone think do you think maybe there’s some political clout involved in order to get all of this? I agree with the new mayor getting rid of the Chicago police security detail that’s not a problem the problem is how much is this going to cost?

Who else is involved with the security company that is the head of Laurys detail? I don’t know if something doesn’t seem right here, the tea leaves are not clear! But yet the article says she still will be keeping the complete Chicago police detail but yet hiring all of these federal people to oversee the Chicago police detail what sense does that make? Then again nothing makes sense In the city which is the most corrupt in the entire United States even the liberal media publications have said that with the corruption continue?

Will the new boss be the same as the old boss? If she keeps the same people in charge of the Chicago Police Department that have done nothing over how many years except expand the gold star club drawing massive amounts of salaries and massive amounts of pensions and Have done nothing to prove themselves maybe the change needs to happen here!

listen , you can bet he's more qualified than the P.O. or Sgt. or Lt . that was a political hack promoted to commander .

If they need to make an arrest , like any private security they can detain , call 911 and sign complaints .
At least we will not have two more pensions of commander coming out of our pension fund .
Lori , with a stroke of a pen , you can demote every exempt back to their civil service rank , offer them a yearly bonus . This will stop the drain of our pension fund . Believe me , most unqualified , could not handle patrol division . They will all stay until you find out how unqualified they really are . Clue ,call every exempt into Police Headquarters media room , have them take the last sergeant and lieutenant exam , those that score under 85% should be demoted on the Spot . You will be shocked at the incompetent clout babies running CPD .
Wish you the Best of Luck . CPD needs competent supervisors . Also you always look dressed to the nines . Start suspended supervisors that are afraid to enforce CPD grooming , uniform standards .

Wonder if the "Bangers and Dope Slingers" got the memo about the reinterpretation of the four Chicago Stars. The new Socialist rewrite of Chicago history in the making. Public Safety is the new buzz word for the Community. Gang and Gun violence is now no longer tolerable or acceptable in Chicago per Lorie.

Man I feel safe already. This holiday weekend I think I'll take the family for a ride on the Red Line and visit different parts of the city.

Security gigs for Medical Marijuana is huge money. A retired p.o. would make more than their pension working security for those places. And you do absolutely nothing but sit there. Everyone is buzzed in and out and there’s no interaction with people. All product is secured in large safes. You sit in the back by the safes. Great gig and impossible to get unless you’re heavily connected.

You are wrong my brother works there I had a Dispensery retired CPD gets paid $25 an hour not a lot of money you say more than a pension that’s another thing and faulty statement maybe the guy that’s running the new mayor detail is paying people more than that but I really like not a lot of money and it lets her way high up on the totem pole

Indirectly I know LL as a retired Fed. Here is my take on what to expect from her administration in order of priority; clean house, eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse and control the messaging. Police and Fire sorry, but you are not the most important departments. Financials are more important. You can't help Police and Fire improve if you don't have the money. Good cops will continue to be Great, and the rest will resist change and blame the process that fuels their perception of a lack of fairness.

The robber was described as black, about 5-foot-4 and weighing about 130 pounds, with a “flat shaped nose,” according to police. He was wearing a dark gray hooded sweatshirt and black pants at the time of the carjacking.

Just watched pathetic dishonest channel 7 news who described bolo for a man,driving a black car wearing a black sweatshirt but never saying the thug was black the usual suspects. Lori wants to do a barry obama with a talk about race, well well Lori how about talking to your peoples/folks about obeying the law that would be a great start whatch think?

New Mayor Lightfoot Tells Cops To Get Out Of Their Cars, Walk The Beat - CBS 2 Chicago -- And Why Would CPD Officers Do That, When The Mayor And Those She Surrounds Herself With Are All Cop Haters, Who Will Throw Officers Under The Bus Whenever Phony Allegations Are Made

5/21/2019 02:50:00 PM

Good night: those feral mf's will steal the cars everyone must running because the batteries drain dry from all the electronics. What is she going to provide bus service to/from and full coverage body armor. Does she think her kin will simply let the popo walk down the street without turning it into a shooting gallery with POs as live sitting ducks? Or simply beat the crap out of every officer walking down the stree like they did to the NYFD guy https://www.foxnews.com/us/off-duty-fdny-firefighter-attacked-by-teens-after-defending-elderly-couple

A 9:48 p.m. Facebook post on 2nd Precinct Minneapolis Crime Watch page said that University of Minnesota (U of M) police were requesting assistance from Minneapolis police (MPD) and Metro Transit police for “a group of 8-10 males chasing people with hammers” and that some people were injured. A Facebook post a minute later on Minneapolis Scanner page said that the three police departments were responding to “multiple [911] calls” about “10-12 Somali teen males armed with hammers chasing people,” also with “several injuries reported.” Both Facebook pages regularly post summaries of police scanner audio.”

Please contact the local Representative for that area and get a comment please , her name is Ilhan Abdullahi Omar. She seems to have an opinion on everything .

Watched Lori Lightfoot take the oath of office yesterday and hope she makes some sort of a positive change but not counting on it. Just this week alone we had a beautiful 19 year old girl lured to her death and a baby cut from her womb. Think about it, how can someone proclaim THEY are going to change a city when every single day there is such pervasive evil in a city that it’s citizens think they can commit an atrocity so hideous without recourse? Even today the flood of evil and violence is prevalent again in that a teacher was carjacked at a prestigious school NEXT to the Police Academy and later in the day a car taken at gunpoint in THE tourist area and economic engine of Chicago in the Loop. It’s reached the tipping point and radical change needs to occur, not useless words and rhetoric.

Both Wrightwood Ave. (2600 N.) and Schubert Ave. (2700 N.) run parallel 1/8 mile (1 city block) apart on Beat 1412. Walk south from the latter, cross Drummond Pl. (2632 N.) and you're at Wrightwood Ave.

I agree with the above 2:17 PM poster. If the Mayor moved from 014 to 011, I'd be most impressed. In the center of this district, she'll have beautiful Garfield Park which is great for family picnics. She should also go for several Fillmore ride-alongs on hot humid summer weekend nights, preferably from 2000 hours to 0400 hours.

Get out of the beat car and meet and greet with the folks, Your Honor. Even the most cynical voters would have to agree that "Mayor Lightfoot is the real deal".

Talk is cheap, Madame Mayor.

Also, what do you think about 2-term limits for elected officials, a recall referendum mechanism, cutting the wards from fifty to fifteen like the per capita ratio for the nation's other most populous cities, legitimate and transparent CPD promotional exams instead of blatant in-our-face scams and ending the "Gold Braid" legislation for all the clout babies.

Can an intelligent, fair and rational person disagree that implementing these changes would minimize the fact that Chicago is currently and historically the most politically corrupt major city in the nation. I think not.

But that fat tick Eddie J says crime is down. She won't even can him and that should have been her first move. And as far as hammering those that deserve it, I doubt it as she is a progressive, a SJW singing the restorative justice tune. Systematic prejudice and economic inequality in Shitcago is her song. She will enjoy sticking it in the ear of the coppers when she can, to the applause of the community, she wants two terms and surely has her eye on bigger political goals (remember she's a triple threat) so she's not going to cut her own throat by making changes that will turn the voters against her. Corruption is OK with those folks as long as those in power promise plenty of free stuff to the brain dead voters.

SS marketed itself heavily to dispensaries when IL’s medical cannabis program rolled out, no idea how many stores actually ended up using them though due to cost. Quite a few places did what another poster mentioned, hired retired LE. He’s also right about the pay, it ranges 20-25/ hr. Always interesting to connect the dots with who knows who.

Who is this "Colorado" that states utter nonsense? I've lived here since the 90s. If you believe that nonsense, I have a crime free neighborhood to sell you on the west side. How is Pot costing the taxpayers? I'm all ears. We have Dispensaries that sponsor roads, you have tolls. We have tourists flocking here to pay huge taxes on Pot. Our population has TRIPLED since 1990 with no end in sight. They can't build enough houses to keep up. My 4000 sq ft house on two acres would cost me $2400 a year in taxes, but since I am a disabled veteran, I pay $1200. Nice huh? Well, it gets better, $100,00 increase in 8 years. Can you say that? Only if you find a hidden compartment with cash in it in your flooded basement.
Do you know who is in those lines at the Medical Dispensaries? Mostly, the elderly. That's right. Retirees that have arthritis pain or whatever. They avoid the Doctor and the copays, avoid messing with their insurance, buy some pot, and go home and garden. You should try it. We may be stoners, but every single one of us that left Chicago is smarter than you, Bud.
My parents lost half the value of their home on the Southside, I took that as my cue to leave in the 80s. I'm sure it will turn around and get better any day now,right?

The Fed’s don’t like “local police.” They never have and they never will. They think we’re poorly trained, poorly supervised and act unprofessionally. Hmmm. Maybe they're to something. Regardless she can have her private security. She can’t stand the sight of CPD and doesn’t trust us we’ll funny because the same goes for most of us. And by the way putting everyone in uniform and cancelling everybody’s days off might slow crime a bit but it sure the hell wont keep these people from killing each other. And in the long run you’re going to burn coppers out and will get even less productivity from them than your getting now. But as a former Fed they don’t understand this. They don’t work weekends or holidays. In fact they get “snow days” and “ work from home” days. Its not even close what Police Officers deal with on a day to day basis compared to what’s expected from federal agencies.
