Call "Da Mayer"

I know most of my readers are redirects from Second City Cop but for those of you who don't, SCC is promoting an idea that came from the FOP.

SCC posted this herald to all concerned citizens - Call the mayor's office and demand more police!

The department is down, big-time. It's down almost 1,000 officers. Those working the streets are very often working alone, without a PDT (computer) and in a squad car with over 150,000 miles on it. Last year in my district, they didn't even have enough radios to give every copper!

We are asking you to contact the Mayor’s press office at 312-744-3334 and ask him to hire more police officers.

Your message should be:

You want the streets of Chicago made safer.
You want more Police Officers hired.
You want them patrolling in two-man cars.

Please Keep the same message. Be polite and patient with the people who answer your call. Thank you for your help.


And don't let them push you off with CAPS related questions. The CAPS offices have absolutely NOTHING to do with assignments or equipment.

If you want to take it to the next level, go to http://www.chicagopolice.org and click on "Community Concerns". Go in and report your concern that the police department is understaffed and underequipped. Select "Report a community concern" then click on "Is your concern related to Police performance?" and select "Let us know when our police officers do a good job."

Follow the screens, and when you get to the narrative - put this in:

It's disheartening to see that our police department is understaffed, and underequipped. While I salute and honor the service of our men and women in blue, I want to see our police officers do their job effectively and safely.

Please see that the Mayor's office hires more police, buys more equipment for them and provides them with the tools that they need.

The Mayor can find $5,000 per vehicle to install video cameras, but he can't find the money to put more police on the street.

Thank you.

Nope, they will join the rest of the Polish, Italian and German racists across the city and vote for McCain. I bet you're one of them too. A racist and a McCain supporter.

Honestly, if you're black and you're voting for Obama because, and pretty much ONLY because he's black - then I don't have a problem with that.

I remember when a friend of mine, who's Greek, was voting in the '88 election - and she voted against Dukakis. Her family was horrified that she didn't support "one of her own."

But let's get real for a moment - 6% of whites aren't voting for BHO because he's black. 9% of whites are voting for BHO because he's black. It's a wash.

Personally, I'd vote for a black person if I thought he'd be a good leader, a solid conservative, a fiscal tightwad and a constitutional originalist.

That's why I cannot support "The Messiah" because he's the utter opposite of those traits.

Now explain to me again why you're supporting "Keating Five" McCain?

Obama is not as black as you think. His daddy listed himself on the birth certificate as an Arab.

The "keating 5" mess will pale next to the Barney's Fannie disaster. But,
the left leaning media will sit on it till the messiah gets in.
In a "perceived" case of the lesser of 2 evils, RUE's choice of McCain is obvious.
I was a little gunshy of McCain till he picked his NRA running-mate.
Just think, in a world where the republicans get the blame for us losing our rights, it'll be the messiah's police that come to your door because you have too big a gun,too many guns,or too much ammo...

How many guns does one truly need? Master one weapon or two. Anything else is just baggage. If you're in the field, how many guns can you carry?

the patriot said...

Good point as far as carrying.
BUT, I dont need a liberal telling me
about how many , how big and how many bullets.
I dont tell THEM how many abortions they can have, what race to have sex/marry with,etc.....
The 1st & 2nd Amendments will be threatened more by the messiah than they ever were under Bush.
I just hope foreign affairs and the economy keep the messiah busy for his 4 years......

Most of these so-called gun guys may have fancy weapons in their closets, but they've never fired them. Or if they do, maybe once a year. Gee, that really makes them top notch gunmen, right? Ho Ho Ho yeah right. These gun freaks would just piss their pants while under small arms fire.
