Rookies? No Kidding? (UPDATE)
- Faced with a surge in killings and a breakdown of trust in law enforcement, the Chicago Police Department is sending its least experienced cops to neighborhoods that see the most violence.
The six police districts with the highest total of murders and shootings this year have the most rookie officers, a Chicago Sun-Times analysis of police deployment data found.
Those districts — all of them on the South Side or the West Side — also have some of the least experienced supervisors, on average.
Certain aldercreatures feel like they have to force veterans to work where they don't want to be and are going to be pushing for that when the Contract expires, which will make a happy and productive workforce - just like when they let the ACLU and #blm run things.
We'd think about doing it for an extra $20,000. And after we got the suitcase full of money to think about it, we'd probably still say no. But it'll cost them $20,000 to hear us say it.
UPDATE: Someone in the comment section had a good point/idea - why doesn't the City experiment with moving the veteran teachers back to places like "Fenger, Kelvyn Park, Bowen, Bogan, Douglass, Tilden, CVS, VOISE"? After all, the children are our most important resource, right? And they deserve to be taught by the most experienced teachers so that they can be successful astronauts and physicists and doctors, right?
This sounds like a great idea, and it's all "for the children," so Rahm can get behind it and feel he's still supporting the Hillary Agenda.
