Not the cops fault there is alot of crime. Do you blame soldiers if a battle is not won????????? NO YOU BLAME THE GENERAL AND LEADERS.
Cut thew ages of chief of polcie fn mayor and Gov. and the top brass....COP ON THE STREET DOESNT MAKE LAWS OR CONTROL POLICIES.
Facts, reality do not support your point of view supporting pay raise for the Chicago police dept.
sickofit, understand This is not about assigning blame for the cities high crime rate but rather to point out that based on the historical FACTS, the lack of performance, Chicago police should be paid a lot less than they are today. they are not earning what we pay them now.
Facts are Chicago has had the highest rate of unsolved homicides of any city in America for the past 20 years. that means the Chicago police past, retired, present on duty officers have not been proactive solving homicides, aggressively arresting shooters, arresting drug dealers, drug buyers. why is that??
Look it up it is a matter of public record and everything is on the net if you just take the time to do da research.
you might be surprised to learn than over ten thousand murders , homicides have gone unsolved in Chicago in the past 20 years.
That's a whole lot of unsolved crime.
drugs are all over the south side of the city, little or no effort made to track arrest drug dealers, buyers, buyer car by tracking license plates numbers. shooters almost never get arrested why is that?
no city in America can boast of such a poor police track record.
Chicago police deserve a pay cut for inability to do what we pay them to do.
Chicago should get drones over the hood or blind police.
drones see everything day or night blind police pay attention to detail in a way the Chicago police don't seem to be able to do.
Bet police cadets from the perkins school for blind police in Boston could do a better job of solving murders arresting drug dealers than Chicago police have been doing.
the twenty year track record of inaction by chicago police to address and solve the problem speaks volumes about what wrong in da city.
can't reward job failure, problem solving inaction, lack of job performance da numbers speak volumes
