what do the tax payers deserve?

how about a police force that enforces drug laws, investigates homicides, Do the cops know or even care that several thousand unsolved homicide cases are sitting in police stations files on the south side of da city?

about arrest of the many drug buyers clogging the streets of the south side of da city, don't here or see many arrest of that crowd. they must have paid off the cops already to avoid arrest.

Based on performance police should take a 25% pay cut and not a penny more until they investigate and close out those thousands of unsolved murders on the south side.

somebody got to know something about the 411 of the crimes.

so get out of the coffee shop, ship the union halls and do what we paid you to do, protect and defend investigate and arrest.

They claim they need time to scan e-mails? I thought Dunkin Doghnuts had wi-fi. Do it there.

when the historical record of the Chicago police department is viewed through the prism of reality they should take a 25 % pay cut.

consider there are thousands of unsolved homicide cases in Chicago police department files over the past five years.

drug sales, distribution on the south side of da city have not been slowed or stopped by police.

drug buyers shooter have not been arrested by the Chicago police.

police have not lived up to the pledge they take to protect and defend the civilian population they are sworn to defend.

they have failed for the past thirty years to do what they are paid too much to do.

take a 25 % pay cut or go work at McDonald's or walmart.
