Shocker, not: Chicago police retiring at twice the normal rate

Can you blame them with the defund the police movement and Mayor Lightfoot’s “leadership” skills (see examples here and here).

According to MyFoxChicago, Chicago Police personnel have been retiring at twice the usual rate recently, which could leave the city streets short of officers.

They report that at least 110 police officers are retiring in August and September, and retirements in 2020 are projected to be higher than the past couple of years.

The vice president of the board of trustees for the Policemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago partially blames this on a change in health insurance benefits.

Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

I think we know what is the actual driving force behind Chicago Police retirements. Might have something to do with this?

Read the whole story here.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best recently announced her retirement due to “lack of respect for her and her officers.”

Just recently over 20 percent of Minneapolis police officers applied for permanent disability mostly related to PTSD after the George Floyd rioting.

And in NYC, which is experiencing a high rate of rioting, looting and crime, NYPD retirements are surging.

I’m sensing a pattern here in demorat-run cities…

BLM achieves justice in Seattle: First black police chief resigns

This is liberal logic for ‘ya.

Soon to be former Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best

Carmen Best has been the Chief of Seattle Police since 2018.

She’s been through the trenches lately with the CHAZ/CHOP fiasco in Seattle (where two people were shot and killed and BLM/Antifa thugs took over public city streets). Agitators also showed up in her neighborhood to harass her.

Yesterday the Seattle City Council approved historic cuts to the Seattle Police Department. This included a $100,000 paycut for Chief Best.

Carmen Best is considered one of the more reasonable folk left in Seattle. And now she’s out. Read her resignation statement here.

Seattle citizens DESERVE what they vote for. Chief Best, not so much.

BLM/Antifa must be SO PROUD for driving out a women of color. Social justice achieved, indeed!

You don’t say: Residents fleeing liberal utopia of Seattle

The once-beautiful, demorat-run city of Seattle has turned into a nightmare.

You’ve got a serious homeless problem. Even a BILLION taxpayer dollars isn’t enough to solve that problem.

You’ve got a serious problem with repeat criminal offenders. Due to the progressive “criminal justice reform” agenda, there are many, many repeat offenders who are never properly punished.

Then you’ve got ANTIFA/BLM/demorat thugs taking over the city streets and rioting, looting and burning the city down. And the elected politicians cave to their demands.

So why would any reasonable, taxpaying-citizen want to remain in this liberal utopia? It appears that many residents have had enough and are heading out.

KOMO News reports that more Seattle-area residents selling their homes and fleeing the city. This is based on a Redfin report which states that the number of home sellers looking to leave the Seattle metro area has jumped to 13.7%, compared with 11.2% at the same time last year.

Also notable? The net outflow of homeowners from Seattle has soared from 363 in the second quarter of last year to 6,007 in the second quarter of this year – a jump of more than 1,500%.

Redfin claims that the reasons people are leaving are because of the Wuhan virus, to move closer to family, flexible remote work which means people don’t “have to live in this area,” and low mortgage rates.

Gee, ‘ya think the crazy violence and lack of law and order might have something to do with it?

Seattle to “transform” police department & “re-imagine” community safety; Seven people injured in two shootings after announcement

SHOT:

On Sunday night Mayor Durkan announced a plan to transform Seattle Police and “reimagine” community safety.

From Durkan’s announcement:

“Mayor Jenny A. Durkan and Police Chief Carmen Best have been conducting a thorough review of the Seattle Police Department’s (SPD) budget and the impacts budget reductions would have on services to the residents and businesses of Seattle. On June 18, the Mayor and Chief asked SPD leadership and the City Budget Office to comprehensively analyze the department’s current services. Based off that analysis, the Mayor and Chief today announced early actions to transfer programs and functions currently within SPD out of the department and identified some preliminary reductions to the 2021 budget. In total, these early steps would lead to a $76 million reduction in SPD’s budget for 2021.

“Chief Best and I believe we can build a new model for community safety in Seattle by reimagining our approach to policing and investing deeply in community,” said Mayor Durkan.

“The Seattle Police Department has been very clear – we are committed to a community-led re-envisioning of what community safety should be,” said Chief of Police Carmen Best.”

CHASER:

Good luck, Seattle, You’re going to need it.

Take a look at one of WA ST Gov. Inslee’s new police force task members

In response to the shootings at CHAZ/CHOP, Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee tweeted the following:

“We are going to take a hard look at how we manage independent investigations of police use of force in WA. Our new task force will recommend actions we can take to create a more just WA. It includes community leaders, impacted family members and law enforcement representatives.”

In this Twitter thread he lists all the members of the task force. This includes Livio De La Cruz – board member, Black Lives Matter SEA-KC.

He/Him: BLM SEA-KC board member and JD candidate Livio De La Cruz

Let’s take a look at Livio (he/him), shall we? From he/him Twitter bio: “JD Candidate 2022 at SeattleLaw. Freelance #Unity3D Programmer #GameDev, He/Him.”

Yes, Livio is going to study law. Which should make you very nervous considering this tweet by he/him on June 22:

“1. Police kill people
2. Seattle protests this
3. Republicans say, repeatedly, these protestors deserve to be shot and killed
4. White people agree, they bring guns, they shoot, they kill.
5. “It’s the protesters’ fault!”

There’s A LOT of presumptive and unproven statements in this tweet. You’d think a JD candidate would be able to back up all of he/him assertions with some facts, right? Here’s he/him following tweet:

“Do you know what it’s like to have people in power call for your death, to have them shout their bloodlust so loudly that the entire country hears it, only to have everyone blame YOU for the death that results from this?”

I’m no JD candidate yet I did take debate class in high school and learned how to prove my case. Here ‘ya go, Livio:

1. “Police kill people”

Yes, police do kill people. They kill in self defense, a criminal committing a crime, protecting a victim from a criminal, and in some cases of police brutality. They also kill people who are unarmed.

Police have contact with MILLIONS of people throughout the US every year. Last year, according to the Washington Post’s database of police-involved shootings, nine unarmed black people were shot and killed by the police, compared to 19 unarmed white people.

What’s your point, Livio, about “police kill people?”

“Police kill people” is a generic statement. Accidents kill people. Rioters kill people. Drugs kill people. A lot of things kill people.

My point is that police kill less unarmed black people than white. What is your point, exactly?

How Seattle “protests”/Q13 Fox News photo

2. “Seattle protests this”

Yes they do. Seattle protests that police kill people while they also loot, riot and burn down businesses. Because nothing says protestors are against police brutality by creating violence throughout your city.

I would also put forth that your definition of “protests” has been arbitrarily expanded to include the illegal occupation of public/private property and terrorization of fellow tax-paying citizens.

3. “Republicans say, repeatedly, these protestors deserve to be shot and killed”

Please provide evidence where republicans state that PEACEFUL protestors deserve to be shot and killed. We all know that the First Amendment, with qualifiers, applies to protests. Why leave out that one important word? I’ll wait.

For all those “protestors” who riot, loot and burn businesses, yes, they do deserve to be shot. That’s called self defense or affirmative defense, and one has a reasonable right to defend real or personal property. As a JD candidate, do you believe that law-abiding taxpayers and property owners should forfeit their legal rights to protestors?

4. “White people agree, they bring guns, they shoot, they kill.”

Livio, you provide no evidence of this statement. As a JD candidate, you should understand that you have a duty to provide a burden of proof and evidence that establishes the truth of your statement. Produce something that may pause me to consider your claim.

I know of no white person who showed up at the recent Seattle protests with their guns to shoot and kill. I’ll wait for your evidence.

5. “It’s the protesters’ fault!”

In the absence of rules of evidence, I guess this conclusion works for you.

Good luck in law school, Livio. And good luck in the courtroom.

One man dead after shooting in Seattle autonomous zone; Warlord not happy they were left to their own devices

A shooting occurred in the wee hours of Saturday in Seattle’s “CHAZ” or “CHOP,” whatever they are calling themselves these days. One man is dead and another is being treated for life-threatening injuries. From the Seattle Police:

“Homicide detectives are investigating following a fatal shooting that occurred early Saturday morning at 10th Avenue and East Pine Street. One man was declared deceased at the hospital and another male is being treated for life-threatening injuries.

On June 20th, at approximately 2:30 AM, East Precinct officers responded to a report of shots fired in Cal Anderson Park. This is inside the area referred to as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP). Officers attempted to locate a shooting victim but were met by a violent crowd that prevented officers safe access to the victims. Officers were later informed that the victims, both males, had been transported to Harborview Medical Center by CHOP “medics”.

Read the whole SPD statement here.

Last night the “Warlord” of the autonomous area of Seattle, Raz Simone, made it known that he was not pleased with Seattle EMTs. From his Twitter:

First of all, EMTs are not going into a homicide area (and possible still-active crime scene) without law enforcement backup.

Secondly, Raz needs a dictionary.

Life comes at you fast sometimes…

America, get ready for your new police-free reality (Good time to buy more ammo)

Buy. Lots. Of. Ammo.

When the left say they want to abolish the police, they mean it.

The reality of the progressive #defundpolice/BLM agenda:

Some 19 Atlanta officers have resigned after Rayshard Brooks shooting

10 SWAT members in South Florida resign from unit, saying they feel unsafely restrained by politics

Seven Minneapolis police officers resign after George Floyd protests, citing lack of support from city leaders

NYPD police prepare to leave force, saying top brass abandoned them

NYPD investigating incident of multiple uniformed officers being poisoned at Manhattan restaurant

LAPD sources tell me morale is at “rock bottom”.

Emergency response time more than triples due to Seattle occupy protesters

Dangerous times ahead, very dangerous. Be prepared, folks.

Despicable: Seattle protestor tells cops to kill themselves

These people are SICK. Both mentally and spiritually. Pure. EVIL.

Jason Rantz, from KTTH Radio in Seattle, reported the following on Twitter last night:

Take your guns, put them onto your chins, and pull the trigger.

When a man shouted at cops to kill themselves or the crowd will “tear you apart” instead, Seattle Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda (@CMTMosqueda) told the public that the anger is justified.”

More from Jason’s story on MyNorthwest.com (read the full story here):

“SPD, I need you to do me a favor. Take your guns, put them onto your chins, and pull the trigger,” the man yelled. “I need you to kill yourselves. That’s your only redemption. Go ahead, save us the trouble of tearing you apart and *****ing kill yourselves. Did I stutter? I said ‘k-k-k-kill yourselves.

Listen to the video here.

#LoveTrumpsHate is so cancelled. It’s now, “kill yourself!”

How awful the left have become. I’m afraid there is NO unity possible with people like this.
