The fact that the State’s Attorney and the judges keep turning violent criminals lose, can’t have anything to do with it. It must all be the cops’ fault. City ‘could have a mess on our hands’ if police don’t use every tool against violence: Lightfoot. So civic order in a big city is not possible without cops doing their jobs? Is that actually what Mayor Lightfoot said?
Of course since the State’s Attorney (Crimesha, also known as Kim Foxx) and the judges don’t work for the mayor, so she can’t really call them to a meeting at city hall. But the cops can’t do much if the bad guys pay no consequences.
In the wake of a homicide and shooting tally that was the worst for a February weekend in 18 years, the mayor said she “had a lot of very difficult conversations with CPD leadership.”
HeyJackass has the numbers for The Weekend’s Stupidity, and they disturbing, even by Chicago standards.
And while this is a post about Chicago, that isn’t the only city that has come to be in the grips of the Social Justice Warriors, or the only city to see an increase in crime.
Hat tip to Second City Cop who notes that the CPD has been 3 years without a contract because the folks like Lightfoot want to make it much easier to fire cops. Guess what?
If you get told over and over, even after months of training and hours of on-the-job training and extra training and more training that ever before, that everything you do is under review by armchair quarterbacks who never served a day on the street, that never made a snap decision under unbelievable pressure, then guess what? The smartest move you can make, day after day, is to disengage. Do not jeopardize your continued employment or your remaining free from prison and/or bankruptcy.
Welcome to the world that Social Justice has wrought.
