“Arm Yourselves Citizens,” says Cop to people of Chicago.

By Doug Book,  staff writer

“Arm yourselves citizens. You are about to become the most unusual social experiment in history.”  (1)

Such is the advice the owner of police blog  “Second City Cop”  gives to the residents of Rahm Emanuel’s crime ridden city of Chicago. Months after inheriting a demoralized and shrinking police force from outgoing mayor Richard Daley,  Rahm Emanuel has charged newly appointed Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy with slashing $190 million from the Department budget.

Yet during last year’s campaign,  Emanuel promised voters he would,  “…put 1000 more officers on the beat and erase a more than $635 million city of Chicago budget shortfall without cutting police,  raising taxes or using one-time revenues.”  (2)

How does he intend to perform these feats of financial legerdemain?

Apparently he’ll start by taking a page from former Mayor Daley’s handbook of chimerical accounting. It was Daley’s habit to authorize and account for certain numbers of police in Chicago’s annual budget and then fail to act on promised hiring,  fill vacancies or account for retirements. In that way,  unspent funds were magically turned into  “savings!”

Leave it to Rahm to scam taxpayers in exactly the same way. His hand picked Superintendent,  Garry McCarthy has announced he will eliminate 1400 police vacancies,  saving the city some  $93 million.

But Mike Shields,  president of Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police asked the sort of question the Chicago media perpetually refuses to put to liberal politicians:  “How does  ‘eliminating vacancies’  save  $93 million when zero dollars were being spent on the vacant spots in the first place?”

Though neither McCarthy nor Emanuel have answered Shield’s query,  Chicago Alderman Anthony Beale figures it doesn’t really matter for he has the situation well in hand.

“I know it’s an unpopular thing to say.”  says Beale,  “…but if you put the officers where they’re needed vs. where they’re wanted,  you could see a reduction.”  That way,  “…if we’re gonna make the entire city safe,  we can do it with less officers.” 3)

A  “reduction”  in what,  Alderman Beale doesn’t say,  but it will probably not be a reduction in crime. In the first place,  putting additional officers in high crime areas is always a good idea,  but not if it means removing them entirely from other parts of the city! For even the dumbest crook will start plying his trade where police no longer patrol.

And as for Rahm,  well he’s not too hot on the idea anyhow. He has already refused to concentrate more police in Chicago’s highest crime areas,  worried that it would  “…divide the city along racial lines…”

In short,  stacking police in black areas would make it look as though blacks were responsible for the majority of Chicago’s crimes! And though it may be true,  it fractures every rule of Political Correctness to admit it.  (1)

So new police officers will not be hired,  vacancies will not be filled and additional patrol units will not be assigned to high crime areas.

In a department which considers 13,500 officers to represent  “full strength”,  October of 2010 saw 11,178 officers on the City of Chicago payroll. Today the number is about 10,900. And many Chicago cops believe that number could be as low as 9,000 in a very few years.  (4)

So the people of Chicago had best prepare for some very dark days ahead,  for it appears Rahm Emanuel is indeed about to conduct a brand new experiment…one based on the notion that fewer cops will result in fewer crimes!

Keep your head down,  citizens of Chicago. It could get even messier out there.

  1. I don't think we will last much longer , When Iran stands Up and declares the Dollar Rejected at OPEC here in the next few weeks Because they NOW CONTROL OPEC , they are getting ready to switch to the EURO the signs were this week when the ECB said they will print EUROS to baliout all the EU countries , instead of the Dollar , and that FITS into the BRIC OPEC relationship , http://www.thehindu.com/news/international/articlhttp://www.zerohedge.com/article/china-says-it-wi

    That will crash Our Markets full and then we will be less 30 % of our Oil use and that is when Martial Law with be OUR new Way of Life .

    Tax the rich is a wedge Issue to divide the electorate and then they can pass the Laws that will fundamentally change the USA and then the world will fall into place with them, and we have seen all the rich elite go to dinner at the Whitehouse after a Day of Obama preaching to everyone that we all need to Hate those rich people and give the Government More control over the things that the rich control , and that means that Only then the Government controls all things that even small Independent Enterprise will be restricted from , and the rich don't care because they and the Government are In bed together anyway and they will continue to hold their Positions in the New Scheme of things , and so the Free Enterprise economic system is now being rolled over into control of the Governments of the world as they take control of the assets with DEBT , get Control of the Private property rights more and More by using this power to make the Private property worthless with DEBT and No Growth Economic Policies . And NEW Regulations have made everything so risky now with regulations and stalling the economic prosperity of the FREE markets ability to function and create wealth from profits and pay free market wages to hired help we are falling into the control of the Government as they consolidate away the control of the resources from the private sectors private property rights ownership as they go broke and this is PURE SERFDOM and BOLSHEVISM Obama is a Master Marxist taught by the BEST thats why he won't show us his past Records . The Plan is Out of Chaos comes the solution , Government takeovers in a militarized manner .

    They are rolling up the sidewalks of the Free market system , preparing for a One World Collective as they Rat Hole all the Taxpayers Capital sucking it away with DEBT and the Free Trade system that routes consumer money out of the USA and it never comes back in a Re-Patronized solvent state that leads the USA to a balanced trade deficit , like as much exports and Imports would need to be accomplished , and so the DEBT is bought by the same people who are also calling for the END of the US Dollar as world Trade currency , and this is leading the USA to the Dollar being rejected in the World Supply and thats what Congressman Roscoe Bartlett from Maryland is talking about when he says we are going to Lose access to Vital Needs like parts supply that we do not manufacture anymore .
    The Word *****Independence***** has been Taken for Granted when you think about the Parts supply that is needed to Keep a Metropolitan SEW and WATER system working 24 / 7 so that peace can be sustained , let alone all the other systems that will go down if this kind of a event takes place .
