Chicago Police Want 12% Raise
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Rebel Pundit

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/9/2013 9:52:57 PM

Days after the Chicago Police Department announced it will no longer respond to 911 calls for criminal damage to property, vehicle thefts, garage burglaries, or other crimes in which the suspect is no longer on the scene, the Fraternal Order of Police (Chicago police union) is demanding a 12 percent raise. In addition to the 12 percent increase over the next two years, the union is also seeking a $3,000 annual stipend for being required to live within the city, pay less for health insurance, and reach the top pay scale of

FTA: Days after the Chicago Police Department announced it will no longer respond to 911 calls for criminal damage to property, vehicle thefts, garage burglaries, or other crimes in which the suspect is no longer on the scene

Why not just give us the list of 2 or 3 things that will bring a police response to a 9-1-1 call? [Really -- how many times is the perp just hanging around?]

Clearly, the right answer to this extortion is Reagan´s PATCO action. Too bad it´s tougher to bring about with a city police force -- and impossible to produce under Rahm and his pal, Stinky.

Days after the Chicago Police Department announced it will no longer respond to 911 calls for criminal damage to property, vehicle thefts, garage burglaries, or other crimes in which the suspect is no longer on the scene.

Is he telling his citizens that the police will not respond to armed robberies, assaults with weapons, homicides where the suspect is no longer at the scene of the crime.
Not responding indicates it was not reported What a novel way to reduce the crime statistics

Please explain this logic to me...the police will not respond to a 911 call to a crime where the suspect is no longer on the scene.

I do not know what news reports this union and politicians are following, but I would guess that probably 95% or more crimes that are committed, the suspect has already fled the scene. And seriously, the only realistic way, a suspect would still be at the scene of the crime, is if the victim had some way to restrain the suspect of a crime in progress. How? Usually with a gun. Or a crime in progress like a high speed chase or hostage situation (which are very rare).

So the way I read this as the way it has been reported by the CPD, is that any 911 calls involving a property crime or any other crime where the suspect is not at the scene of the crime, the CPD will not respond.

With this logic, since so few actual 911 calls will require a response, it would then follow that the CPD needs to drastically reduce its force as they would not need as many officers.

Can you even imagine how many home invasions are going to soar because criminals will know not only are the home owners unarmed, but also the police are not going come.

The police union is just following their local teachers unions. Over the past year, each school district has taken it´s turn to strike for hire pay & after a few days they win, then next district strikes for a couple days. Cops want their pc of the unending pie, too.

Based on what they won"t do, they should disband the police department as there is no need for "dead horses".Offer the vacant jobs to career criminals as that would lower the crime rate.Unfortunately most of the crooks are in uniform.Apologies to the few honest ones.

Defense lawyers say Hasan

FORT HOOD — In a surprising development, Maj. Nidal Hasan´s standby counsel team is asking that its role in the capital murder trial be modified, based on concern that Hasan is intentionally seeking the death penalty in his court-martial. The military judge, Col. Tara Osborn, ordered the court cleared so she could conduct a hearing on the matter. It remains to be seen how the motion filed by Lt. Col Kris Poppe and two other lawyers on Hasan´s standby counsel will impact the high-profile trial on its second day. Poppe, Hasan´s former lead defense attorney, has long expressed misgivings

In the “Oh, By the Way” department, we hear all too frequently about the turmoil, dysfunction and even potential collapse of the Republican Party, but as we approach the 2014 midterm elections, I don’t think any leaders in the Republican Party would trade places with their counterparts in the Democratic Party. With all the talk about damage to the Republican brand, angry filibusters, unappealing leaders, and a number of other maladies that the left always wants to see in Republicans, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that Republicans seem

"It´s pretty simple," the president said. "When -- when more people buy homes and play by the rules, home values go up for everybody.

As part of his ongoing campaign to transform New York City into what he calls “Fit City,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg is promoting “active design” for low-income housing developments being built there, including plans to prompt residents to use the stairs and rooftop gardens for growing “healthy” foods. In 2010, the Bloomberg Administration and other public and private sector groups issued the “Active Design Guidelines,” which promotes car-free neighborhoods, encourages “physical movement” inside buildings and “improves access to nutritious food.” The Center for Action Design was launched next as a resource for architects and developers

Federal officials are formally fixing a glitch in ObamaCare that lawmakers worried would effectively cut salaries for congressional staffers. Under a proposed new rule released on Wednesday, the federal government will be able to contribute to 11,000 lawmakers’ and staffers’ healthcare plans. That would close a loophole in the healthcare law that lawmakers worried could lead to a “brain drain” of talent and skill from Capitol Hill to private positions offering better salaries and more generous benefits packages. The amount of money the government can contribute to congressional staffers’ healthcare is no more than they would have received under their

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch.

Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster.

The USA announced the closure of its missions in the Middle East and Africa, and their example was followed by France, Britain, and Germany.

A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent.

Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda
