Alderman: Move police where they’re ‘most needed,’ not ‘most wanted’ - Chicago Sun-Times

Alderman: Move police where they’re ‘most needed,’ not ‘most wanted’ - Chicago Sun-Times


I think Alderman Beale, and others should look at cutting what they have first before demanding such a gutting of law enforcement. I think this quote from the union president explains it all.

"But FOP president Mike Shields ripped the alderman’s proposal."

“The Chicago Police Department today is stretched to the limit. We have had seven police officers killed in the line of duty over the past two years. Now, Ald. Beale wants to give us a pay cut? That is a real insult,” Shields said.

“If the mayor and the city are really serious about saving money, they can save tens of millions per year by cutting the number of aldermen in half and ending all of their ridiculous perks. The mayor asked for suggestions from citizens. That is what the citizens want. They do not want a demoralized and underpaid police force.”

Amen.
