Chicago preparing for the worst

In “The Purge” movie franchise, cops take a day off and society has a free-for-all. With the Jason Van Dyke murder trial wrapping up, Chicago Police have a plan to bolster the numbers of cops on the streets to handle any potential outbreak of (more) violence. If you haven’t been following the action, Van Dyke is the first Chicago police officer in decades to face a murder charge (for the shooting of Laquan McDonald) for an on-duty incident.
However, their plan has a big hole: the morning and evening shift changes have no overlap. That means no police coverage for a time, leaving residents virtually on their own twice each day.  In other words, criminals will enjoy a real-life free-for-all thanks to no police presence on the mean streets of Murder City USA.

For weeks now, the media have eagerly covered the Jason Van Dyke trial. In part, the attention comes from certain people shamelessly using the case to promote their particular ugly political agendas. We all know how Chicago already has a violent crime problem. Obviously, the locals will suffer even more if protests following a verdict turn violent

Info from SecondCityCop

Chicago police officials on Monday said they are prepared to expand shifts and cancel days off for the entire 12,000-strong department if widespread protests occur after a verdict in Officer Jason Van Dyke's murder trial for shooting Laquan McDonald.

Department officials said officers are prepared to have their usual 8 1/2-hour shifts extended to 12 hours a day, while days off would be canceled for other officers.

During an interview with the Chicago Tribune on Monday at police headquarters, Superintendent Eddie Johnson would not specify whether the department would wait until a verdict before instituting the measures.

"We'll monitor the court events, and as we get closer to the end of it, we'll make that decision," Johnson said

Why get all prepared when the Mayor is likely to give a 'stand down' order like other liberally run cities?  The citizens are on their own and have been for quite some time.  Why?  Two-fold;  they keep electing liberals to office and they are dependent on others to do for them what they should be doing for themselves.  

Sounds like a good time to go on vacation for a week if you're a resident.
Governmental dependance makes for poor self reliance.

I sent out a note to our senior management to make sure we don't have anyone going their on business for at least the next two weeks, until we see how all this plays out. I don't want one of our employees to get caught up in the middle if things go south.

Hopefully, calm heads will prevail regardless of the outcome.
Nah. Obammy will tell all his could have been sons to behave. The mayor needs an emergency ordinance to require a permit for all looting and rioting along with a background check of all participants. It should also include the collection of sales tax on all looted goods to pay for the background checks.  Michelle might just read a book to the well behaved people. The governor should be tiptoeing thru the streets and stores carrying a rainbow flag. Hopefully this will instill a calming effect on everyone's attitude during their acquisition of their goods. 

Should none of the above work, then the citizenry will have to have a range day- extra points for moving targets.  Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin
