    And they publish a list of salaries and benefits for District 113 and District 112.*

    The police? Their budget comes from the City's 7% allocation.

    Moral of the story? Pump a bunch of money into the schools, park district, businesses, etc. and you don't NEED a lot of money toward police.

    *And a study conducted a few years ago determined that over 65% of the current residents of the city do not have any children.

    Last week the Delegate Assembly of our union voted on a resolution to support defunding NYPD and ending the MOU we have with NYPD (that passed 113-10), and one of the speakers was legit saying we needed to increase NYPD's funding to draw better applicants. The average street-level NYPD officer makes 75k.

    Then there was some fuckery about POLICE ARE UNION WORKERS TOO. Lmao bro, get fucked.

    Get fucked, indeed.

    As of 2016, the Chicago Police Department cost Chicago taxpayers $662 MILLION in police misconduct settlements.

    Police misconduct cost the City of Chicago $113 million in 2018, alone.

    "The $113 million does not include cases of property damage, minor car accidents, vehicle pursuits, or employment-discrimination lawsuits. The cost is more than five times what the city budgeted for police lawsuits last year, meaning the city likely borrowed money to pay the costs of police settlements, as it has done in all but one year since 2008, according to city records."

    In February of 2020, City Counsel signed off on $10.7 million more toward police misconduct settlements.

    So, when people wonder "gee, why isn't money going toward Chicago Public Schools or toward hiring more police or toward community policing in Chicago?" YOU HAVE YOUR FUCKING ANSWER.

    di Blasio confirms that $1 Billion will be cut from NYPD with $500 million of that redirected to the Department of Ed... But guess what it has to be spent on.

    This guy has turned out to be such a disappointment. Jesus.

    Federal Law Enforcement Use Unmarked Vehicles To Grab Protesters Off Portland Streets

    yeah it's a scary time here, I'm glad I don't work downtown anymore. That intersection you see above is a couple blocks from where I used to work and the building I worked at is visible in the other video making the rounds, the "use your words" video.

    Mayors and governors need to make it abundantly clear that THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CANNOT SEND MERCENARIES INTO THEIR JURISDICTIONS! Mayors can ask the governor to call in the Feds, and the Governor can activate the National Guard with explicit instructions for the Guard.

    Congress needs to do its job and make it clear that this is a massive overreach. If the Trump regime is allowed to get away with this in Portland, I am terrified of what will happen in other cities, especially as Election Day draws closer.

    Allowing? They appear to be encouraging it.

    Yeah. Jacob is still alive, luckily. Hopefully stays that way.

    I was up into the wee hours watching this unroll, as Kenosha is practically a suburb of Chicago, and our marina is in Kenosha, our little boat is there right now. So we spend a lot of time, there.

    I am NOT surprised by this, sadly. Wisconsin really needs to get its shit together.

    I gave up monitoring and went to sleep.

    The used car lot across from the police station was completely destroyed, the church across was set afire, the cars in the lot next to the Stella hotel were vandalized. This shit escalated really quick.

    Today, the National Guard arrives at 3, curfew begins East of i-94 at 8.

    Edit: My hair salon is boarded up.

    Praying for peace and change.

    I'm seeing some people claim that black blob on the ground by the vehicle is clearly a weapon. You know, the black blob that's sitting there the whole time and gets longer (flatter) after the guy steps on it...

    These types just CANNOT seem to accept that cops fuck up.

    “He was reaching for a gun.” - Still no reason to shoot him in the back 7 times in front of his kids in the back seat. But I’m not buying that excuse, either.

    “There was a warrant out for his arrest.” - The cops didn’t know this. Still no reason to shoot him in the back 7 times in front of his kids in the back seat.
