Mayor Beetlejuice Is A Hypocrite

The mayor of Chicago, Lori “Beetlejuice” Lightfoot, who suggested the city remove $80 million dollars from the police budget, apparently has more than seventy officers on her protection detail.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a Democrat who proposed cutting a huge $80 million from the Chicago Police Department budget in 2020, has a personal police unit consisting of a whopping 71 officers to protect her, and blamed some of her personal need for protection on former President Trump, telling the Chicago Sun-Times, “When the president of the United States uses the world’s largest megaphone and platform to target you personally, terrible things happen. And he not only blew a dog whistle, he pointed really evil and dangerous people right at my doorstep.”

The special unit, named Unit 544, now is comprised of 65 officers, five sergeants and a lieutenant, but that’s not all; “Lightfoot also has a separate personal bodyguard detail, which includes about 20 officers, the records show,” The Sun-Times noted.

Most big cities have a protection detail, but the average amount of personnel is maybe ten to fifteen. Seventy-one officers is ridiculous, and it removes personnel from patrol.

John Catanzara, president of Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police, commented, “While murders are soaring, while districts are barebones for manpower, all that matters is protecting her castle.”

Catanzara isn’t wrong. Homicides are skyrocketing in Chicago, as always, and most of those officers would be better served fighting crime on the street, as opposed to sitting in patrol cars outside Beetlejuice’s residence.

Temple University Is A Garbage School

You may remember this post from last week, where the Soros-appointed district attorney dropped all charges on a full-time thug, who then went and murdered a Temple University student. In the aftermath of the homicide, the “elites” at Temple have decided maybe it wasn’t the best idea to push away the only people who can stop crime on their uber-violent campus.

In response to the murder of one of its students, Temple University President Dr. Jason Wingard said in an email it will “work with the Philadelphia Police Department to increase their presence off campus,” to boost student security.

The move comes after a year in which Temple administrators and students have debated and occasionally embraced facets of the “Defund the Police” movement, which sprang up in the wake of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, an event so shocking it ignited a new, national reckoning on race.

Oh gee, that’s so magnanimous of you. These people couldn’t care less about the police; they’re only working with us because students do not want to attend college in a war zone.

Guess Who Suffers From Rising Crime?

You have to love the Democrats. They spend all their time and energy working to eradicate police in their cities, and when they finally put a plan together, it completely backfires.

According to CDC data released last month, 2020 bore witness to the largest rate of increase in homicides recorded in modern history—a finding that tracks with FBI data. Murder rose 29 percent from 2019 to 2020, surpassing the previous record 12.7 percent spike from 1967 to 1968. Unsurprisingly, the victims of the latest surge in violence were not equally distributed across racial groups. The rise in black homicide victims from 2019 to 2020 was almost twice as big as the rise in white victims (28 percent versus 16 percent).

Is anyone surprised? The reason Democrats wanted to defund the police has nothing to do with police overreach; they wanted defunding because they wanted lawlessness in their cities. Do you truly think Democrat politicians give a damn about blacks and Hispanics? They understand they forever have the black and Hispanic vote, so they can do as much or as little for those demographics as they like.

A new Marshall Project analysis on last year’s homicide wave in major American cities highlights the striking racial disparity: more than 85 percent of the increase in murders occurred in black and Hispanic neighborhoods, where homicide rates were already higher than in white neighborhoods. In Chicago, for example, black neighborhoods saw a rise of 27 murders per 100,000 residents, whereas white neighborhoods saw a rise of only two per 100,000.

The violence is continuing to escalate. In Philadelphia, after 2020’s three-decade high of 499 murders, the city has now set a new homicide record, surpassing 500 murders.

I love the fact City Journal mentioned Philadelphia in this article. Philly gets a pass from the national news media because we aren’t seen as important. Spoiler alert: We aren’t. We are, however, one of the most violent cities in America, and to ignore the murders here is to your peril.

P.S.Philadelphia earned eight more homicides this weekend. Eight. I’m starting to think we can hit 600.

Terrorist Congresscritter Has The Sads

Ilhan Omar, the brother-marrying leftist buffoon is angry that a Minnesota judge struck down her measure to defund and overhaul the Minneapolis Police Department.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is furious about a recent court decision to block a measure that would overhaul the Minneapolis police department.

Like anyone gives a f**k about this Somali terrorist politician.

On Tuesday, the controversial far-left House member claimed that democracy is not being adequately served during a town hall meeting in Minneapolis amid divisive rhetoric and a possible veiled threat.

According to Fox News, Jamie Anderson, the Hennepin District Judge reviewing the measure, called the language “unreasonable and misleading” and struck the measure down.

“This ballot measure should be on the ballot,” said Omar during the meeting. “As you can tell, I’m pretty upset about it.”

This POS has a 24/7 armed protection detail, but she wants to make sure her constituents have no such privileges. Omar is protected, but hey if you get shot, oh well.

Completely unrelated:

Philadelphia Police say two shooters walked up onto the porch and fired at least eight shots into the home, striking a 19-year-old man and a 49-year-old man.

The 19-year-old victim later died at the hospital. The 49-year-old man, who police say may be the father of the teenager, is listed in critical but stable condition.

Minutes after the gunfire rang out, police responded and a witness was able to alert police to an area where the shooters fled. Soon after, officers found a male suspect running. That’s when the suspect started to shoot at officers.

This incident happened not only in my former police district, but also in my former sector. Good to see Weikel Street is still a haven for drugs and shootings.

Seattle Mayor Comes Crawling Back

Jenny Durkan, the incompetent mayor of Seattle, has decided to push for more police officers, a year after she proudly proclaimed the city needed to defund the police.

As Seattle residents reel from one of the deadliest weekends in recent memory, Mayor Jenny Durkan is sounding the alarms. She says the city needs more police, a message she’s been reticent to deliver publicly due to toxic politics and a militant activist base.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! Go f**k yourself, Jenny.

Thanks to a defund movement that is still alive and well, the Seattle Police Department is down nearly a third of its force. And the city is left without the law enforcement support it needs to keep residents safe. Combined with prosecutors who lean into far-left views that the criminal justice system is racist, so they won’t prosecute, criminals are running wild with little fear of consequences for their deadly behavior.

Durkan’s message is not only too little, too late, but it’s falling on deaf ears as the Seattle City Council continues its defunding efforts. Next week the Council is expected to reroute some $14 million from the Seattle Police Department budget. (H/T – MelP)

Most of the big blue cities followed Durkan’s lead, and worked diligently to defund the police. Most of those cities were rewarded with skyrocketing rates of shootings and homicides. One year later, the same cities are begging for new police officers, but no one wants the job anymore. Why would they?

I’d like to feel sorry for these cities, but as someone who lives in one of these terrible blue cities, I think the entire situation is hilarious. This is what you voted for. Own it.

True Detective Stories

So yesterday a gaggle of bosses were congregating around my desk talking about the state of the department. I almost always ignore those conversations, because 1. it’s boring, and 2. there’s nothing we can do to fix this police force.

The conversation continues, and one of the bosses claims the city’s manpower is much worse than we were told. The department always claims we have a 6,000 member police department. No one believes that statistic, because it’s 100% false. Between officers who are injured on duty, posted to irrelevant “teat jobs,” and those under investigation, we’re actually looking at 5,000. At least that’s what I thought…

Leftist Wants To Defund Police… Again

Congresscritter and racist idiot Cori Bush (D- MO) is sponsoring a bill which will defund the police in favor of “community-led first responders.” A few days ago, these same morons claimed Republicans were the ones defunding the police!

Even as crime surges in many cities in America, Democratic Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-MO) plans to introduce legislation that would replace police officers with “community-led first responders.”

I am all for this. Let “the community” respond to the shootings, aggravated assaults, robberies, and rapes, because the “community” has already done a bang-up job of policing their own neighborhoods.

NBC News reported on Monday, “The People’s Response Act would establish a Division on Community Safety within the Department of Health and Human Services that would call upon nonpolice first responders for emergency situations stemming from mental health issues, substance use or other health complications.”

No, that’s not how this works. If you’re going to defund the police, defund all of them. Let your community-led first responders do all the heavy lifting, especially in the most violent areas of Democrat-led cities. Make sure they have a lot of body bags.

“The Squad” member’s bill comes in the wake of violent crime surging in major American cities, including New York City, Philadelphia, Portland, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Chicago.

As if Cori Bush gave a damn. She spends most of her time in Washington, D.C. in a nice neighborhood with a security detail.

The bill vows to “limit people’s encounters with law enforcement by funding community systems led by health officials, to respond to mental health emergencies, rather than police.”

Again, I applaud this measure. I’d love to limit my interactions with the public, as well, especially since most people in this city hate our guts. Let these leftist soy-boys take over, and I’ll sit back and start munching the popcorn.

The Mob Has Spoken

The animals which make up Burn, Loot, Murder (BLM), Antifa, and the great unwashed leftists have struck a blow for anarchy in Seattle. In the past year, the Seattle Police Department has lost a third of its police officers.

In a heartbreaking and revealing interview on The Ari Hoffman Show on Talk Radio 570 KVI, President of the Seattle Police Officer’s Guild Mike Solan said regarding police officers leaving the department, “At the end of this month…we will be close to 300 officers (leaving), that’s a third of the agency.”

The mob wanted to defund the police, and they succeeded. It sucks for the good people in Seattle, but the politicians are beholden to the mob, and soon Seattle will look like Detroit.

Some of the officers opted for early retirement, while others took law enforcement jobs in other cities or switched to alternate careers. Sources [said] morale on the force is at an all-time low. Last month, a Seattle police officer and trainee were refused service at a local chocolate shop. The incident revealed a pattern of behavior by employees of the chain at other locations.

The same day, a female officer was walking her beat past a local public school when approximately 10 3rd grade students raised their hands in the ‘hands-up-don’t-shoot,’ a reference to the Michael Brown incident in in Ferguson, Missouri.

This is the result of one-party rule in major metropolitan cities. I sincerely hope the officers still on the job there slow roll to calls from those businesses. You don’t want our help? Cool, defend your own business and stop calling 911.

Anti-Police Lawyer Lies To Senate

Meet Vanita Gupta, a leftist lawyer put up by the Illegitimate President for associate attorney general, who likely reeks of curry. Vanita was being grilled by GOP senators about her multiple statements concerning her wish to defund the police.

Vanita Gupta, President Biden’s pick to be the next associate attorney general, stated during her confirmation hearing Tuesday morning that she does not support defunding police, although past remarks have led to claims that she does.

Hmm, you’d think an associate attorney general would want MORE police on the streets. I mean, unless you’re all for anarchy, which Apu here is all for.

Gupta faced questions of whether her partisan politics might prevent her from carrying out the duties of the senior Justice Department position. She insisted that she is up to the task and noted that she has received support from many law enforcement officials and organizations.

Sure, she probably received endorsements from garbage leftist departments like New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Philadelphia. She then – get this – lied to the senate panel.

“I do not support defunding the police,” Gupta said during the hearing. “I have in fact spent my career advocating, where it’s been necessary, for greater resources for law enforcement for things like body-worn cameras, office wellness and safety programs, and any number of measures.”

That’s interesting, because Gupta said this to a senate committee in 2020…

“While front-end systems changes are important, it is also critical for state and local leaders to heed calls from Black Lives Matter and Movement for Black Lives activists to decrease police budgets and the scope, role, and responsibility of police in our lives,” Gupta wrote.

Obviously this twat will be confirmed, because the GOP is a joke. The good news is I’ll be long gone before the Illegitimate President is sworn in for his second term, and I stopped caring about my department in November.

Hardesty Is Not The Best Policy

Meet Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty. Jo Ann is one of the architects of Portland’s Defund the Police initiative, and she recently called 911 after a dispute with a Lyft driver. Hypocrite much?

Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, who has previously called for budget cuts for police, utilized the emergency service Nov. 1 after her Lyft driver cancelled her ride.

Lyft driver Richmond Frost picked Hardesty up at a casino, according to KOIN. Frost kept the windows open in accordance with COVID protocols that Lyft implemented.

Frost told police that Hardesty “became irate when he refused to roll the windows up.” He then pulled into a gas station and canceled the ride, asking Hardesty to leave the vehicle. However, Hardesty allegedly refused to get out of the car because “it was cold and she was a woman and alone,” per the same report.

While I applaud the Lyft rider for demanding this bitch get out of his car, the police dispatcher is arguably the real hero here:

“Technically it’s his property,” the dispatcher said. “And you have a civil agreement and there’s no crime involved.” The dispatcher also told Hardesty that it is her obligation, not Frost’s, to hail another ride.

The dispatcher should get a medal, and never have to pay for a beer again in their lifetime.

By the way, I loved Jo Ann in Tales from the Crypt.
