  • Action please not words

    While I was not a big fan of Superintedant Jodi Weiss. I do give him a letter grade of B+ for his work.
    He brought in SUV police vehicles (good to get to you in the snow).
    He was a previous FBI agent before Chicago’s Chief of Police & I believe he knew and tried to fix the broken wheel on Chicago’s streets.
    What happened?
    Rham gets elected, gets rid of Weiss and bring his mouth piece McCarthy in.
    What have both of them done to stop the violence?
    Clearly not enough!!!
    Why don’t both of you stop blaming people who go about legally trying yo protect themselves and defend their families,
    Because at the end of the day both of you have done nothing to change the violence in Chicago besides talk, talk, talk.
    I would be happy if the Illinois State Police & Cook County Sheriffs start doing their jobs and back up, patrol and assist or even lead the way and help Chicago Police on the streets.
    You have to get it through your thick heads, preaching your policy and agenda is not helping to stop the violence.
    Do something about it please, stand up be men of the community instead of community organizers.
    I pay so much city tax on everything in Chicago I buy. Where is that money going?
