With Chicago suffering a 35 percent spike in murders this year, police Supt. Garry McCarthy announced a reshuffling of his command staff Friday, replacing commanders in five of the city’s 23 districts.

McCarthy also promoted three supervisors to deputy chief positions.

McCarthy said the changes were made to “strengthen the department’s ongoing efforts to reduce violence” and create a “more efficient departmental structure.

Given the rather butch appearance of many female police officers, I would prefer it if they didn’t shake their bras.

It might be a fun thing to do with the right policewomen but how is it going to help the murder rate?

This thread has officially been derailed.

Chicago does not have a police problem. They have a culture problem and no amount of chair shuffling at the public safety building will fix it.

The police can’t stop it or slow it down, all they can do is respond........

But department records also show that, through March 18, overall crime has dropped 10 percent throughout the city compared with the same period in 2011

With 114 drug related murders to date, the number has to drop.

Let the thugs fight it out then arrest the survivors..........

As if the police can stop a murder when they aren’t there?

That is one hell of a “shakeup”.
No one was fired. They were promoted? or retired?.
Yep that is one hell of a shakeup and should get outstanding results.
Snicker, snicker, snort.

Easy solution:

1-Declare an Open Season

2-Offer Green Stamps for each harvest turned in
a-10 Green Stamps for every gangbanger
b- 5 Green Stamps for every dope dealer
c- 2 Green Stamps for every hooker
d-75 Green Stamps for every Alderman

When I was a kid growing up in rural Indiana the state paid a bounty on fox. I think it was 25 bucks and all you had to do was bring in the ears to the county clerk.

How could they possibly have that many murders ... only the police and the police auxiliary (Chicago Mob) are allowed to have guns? Must be a bookkeeping mistake.

What’s the problem? Aren’t the good citizens just following Michelle Obama’s Chicago South-side values.The ones she has intilled on her daughters.

This isn’t a police problem: there are just too many bad people living on the South and West sides of Chicago. Products of a failed and broken subculture. And believing, because their leaders say so, that their dysfunction is not their fault. Very sad.

Better. I don't think Green Stamps are valid any more, but Lottery Tickets certainly are! You'd get a lot of folks to turned-in with this approach, but increase the number of tickets times ten. I guarantee results.

The solution for all the killings in Chicago proposed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel is . . . wait for it . . . register all handguns in IL at $20 each per year. What's not said: Chicago (and Cook County) forbids ownership or possession of handguns. Good idea, Rahm . . . NOT. No word as to where the money generated is going, but it's probably earmarked for Rahm and his crony's pockets.
