Kim Foxx is the main cause of all this trouble

Foxx bashes ‘dishonest blame games,’ calls for ‘honest conversation’ after night of looting, because she is so honest don't you know
Foxx’s comments came hours after Chicago Police Supt. David Brown said “a lot of” arrests were made after looting in May and June, but they “weren’t prosecuted to the fullest extent.”

The incompetence in the States Attorneys office is uncharted

‘We’re in really, really uncharted territory,” Kim Foxx says of gun violence in Chicago, as if she has no idea why this is happening. 
Her failure to prosecute in the direct cause of the heightened gun violence.
State’s attorney reflects on a friend’s being shot while she was growing up, says more has to be done to prevent retaliatory shootings, rejects criticism her office is too easy on gun crimes.

Blink

blew an excellent opportunity to break this radical union and save the city

Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she bowed to the science, not the teachers union, in abruptly shifting Chicago Public Schools to a remote learning plan for the fall that officials say will have far more structure and accountability than in the spring.
The mayor cited worsening public health conditions and parent concerns about in-person schooling Wednesday in backing off a proposal to return to classrooms next month. To improve the experience for parents and students, schools chief Janice Jackson promised full-day live online instruction by all teachers five days a week and some small group online learning.
The city will hold remote classes for CPS’ 300,000 students at non-charter schools beginning Sept. 8, the previously scheduled start to the school year, through at least the end of the first quarter, Nov. 6. Officials said they hope the virus can be sufficiently contained by that time to implement the two-days-a-week hybrid learning plan they had been touting up to this point.
Details of the new at-home model will be released in the coming days, Jackson said, with the goal of unveiling a more comprehensive plan than the makeshift one used in the spring when the pandemic forced surprise school closures.

The dumbest deal of all time!

Parking meter deal Chicagoans love to hate gets worse, brought to you by Richie Daley

Chicago’s parking meters raked in $138.7 million in 2019. All told, private investors have earned $1.6 billion. That’s nearly $500 million more than their initial, $1.16 billion investment — with 64 years worth of parking meter revenues to go.

Why not, everything else has gone to f---

Insulting? California lowering bar exam standards in order to pass more minority lawyers7 Comments

A rather insulting headline:
The article in the LA Times states the California Supreme Court agreed to lower the passing score for the exam, a victory for law school deans who have long hoped the change would raise the number of Black and Latino people practicing law.
UCLA School of Law Dean Jennifer L. Mnookin, a longtime supporter of lowering the passing score said, “There is absolutely no evidence that shows having a higher score makes for better lawyers. There is significant evidence that it reduces the diversity of the bar.”
And of course: “Whether the exam is culturally biased has been a question for law journals over the years, and critics have written that it fails to measure the real abilities required to be good lawyers.”
Read the whole article here.
When one seeks an attorney they may base their decision on if the person is a member of the “diversity” team. Or they may seek one through recommendations, legal expertise/area of practice and their “win” record. But that’s just my white-privileged opinion.

DEFUND THE STATES ATTORNEY

Kim Foxx, Cook County's Chief Law Enforcement Official

Refuses to prosecute, thinks every criminal should get another chance and another chance and another chance.  

Murder rate has spiked under her. 

Don't you think that since the number of prosecutions is down significantly, that the States Attorney's budget should also be cut? It only makes sense. Instead, the Foxx budget grows and grows and grows. Why would that be? Patronage. Preckwinkle and the Cook County Board uses the place as a dumping ground for friends and relatives.

Mayor Kook and the tale of the Indigenous people

Lightfoot says ‘people who came for a fight’ hijacked protest at Columbus statue in Grant Park, yes, the protestors were victims and need to be made whole

Mayor Kook supports the plight of indigenous people who were not even there but not the plight of the police who were there and battered. Memo to the mayor, why don't you just concern yourself with trying to jumpstart Chicago's economy and leave law enforcement to the Feds. 


While insisting she supports peaceful protests, she said on Friday, “what we saw … is a group of vigilantes” who formed a “phalanx,” then began “pummeling police with projectiles Frozen water

Almost 300 police officers taken off patrol to protect Lightfoot's house, this past Saturday!

It was an incredible abuse of power to remove so many officers from crime-laden neighborhoods and then assign them to protect her own house. The Chicago City Council needs to discuss Lightfoot's removal from office. 

FROM SECOND CITY COPPER

Groot's Gates

So Groot, hearing that 200-to-300 "peaceful protestors" were headed toward her home, stripped the manpower from all of Area 3 and Area 5 to protect her house. Iron stanchions were delivered and an entire city block fortified. Remember, this is over property - an "overreaction" as defined by numerous alder-assholes:


Almost 300 cops taken from across the city to secure property from "peaceful protestors" and dancers (as one media outlet described them). Meanwhile, nearly seventy people have been ventilated across the city - actual victims of violent acts.....and not "peaceful protestors."

Unless Groot and the media have been lying to us again?

If rumors are to be believed, the entire manpower protecting some districts numbers in the single digits. We're told (unconfirmed) that 016 had six cars patrolling the entire District, 017 had six, and 020 had four. These might be slight exaggerations, but undoubtedly a safety issue.
