What happens when good cops snitch on bad cops?

There is so much talk of residents refusing to,co,operate with police. Some are not aware/refuse ro believe howfar,rhe Blue Code of Silence goes.

Read how Police treat good.cops. It is an eye opener for most. It os denied by many who,want the system to stay the same.

We need to protect the good cops and out the bad ones.

    The real "no snitch" policy is the one in effect at the Chicago Police Department. Perjury by officers is so common in Cook County, when an officer takes the stand, it's called "testilying."

    Falsifying reports runs rampant through all Chicago departments. Let's hope the Justice Department expands its investigation and examines the civil rights policies.

We need a Special Economic Zone (sez)

Egp needs to change the way things are done here. Apparently China Reduced poverty from 56% to 6% by creating special economic zones.

Ward 28 and EGP could benefit greatly by declaring and promoting a specialty zone.

A Technology zone was designated in the Randolph Street area and Google set up shop.

Could ward 28 be designated a DELIVERY HUB? Amazon already set up at Mary Alice USPS for Sunday delivery of Amazon products.

What kind of SEZ would work for us?

What should we promote and attract to bring lifeblood back to EGP? We need to figure it out and do it ourselves.

Maybe Haliburton and Raytheon could come and do research and studies on how ro reduce crime.

Maybe software companies could come here and build software to solve our crime problems.

Maybe Walmart could open a call center and book online orders that would clock sales tax dollars in ward 28. That could be a windfall! Heck we could try and attract online call centers for ANY big retailer.

What do u think would be a good industry for our ward?

Note Cn reduced poverty in sez from 56% to 6% in the same 50 years EGP cratered to approx 70% vacant. Are we some kind of embargo zone and dom't kmow it?

Government is clueless.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_Economic_Zone

    Special economic zone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The creation of special economic zones by the host country may be motivated by the desire to attract foreign direct investment (FDI). The benefits a company gains by being in a Special Economic Zone may mean it can produce and trade goods at a globally competitive price.

    There are many good ideas in the world that could help,the economically depressed areas of the city. One should ask themselves if bad governance is at the root ofthe problem. What has policies has planning, housing and Police done to promote ghettos?

    In the last 50 years Cn pulled more people out of poverty,than any country in history. Singapore created a similar economic,success with more racial.and relegious tolerance. We normalized relationships,with Cuba AND Iran. 50 uears is a long time for an economic embargo to exist in the high impact areas of Chicago.

    I would,say that,State, County, City, Wards could copy success used by some other method than the segregation of the poor into ghettos.

    Wiki.ghetto..they,have,the, all.over.the.world. Wiki slum....they got those all over the world too.

    If we are such a great city? Why do we treat tourists to a taste of gramdure (that bankrupts the city) while our citizens in poverty suffer? Tourism is not what it was made out to be...it is a LOSS industry.

    Our greatest asset is the citizenry. Many need to be put on a better path than the one our government put them on. The welfare path...does not lead to the best and fullest life.

Seems to me the Blue Code is doong more damage than the highly publicized no snitch protocol.m blue Code people,have guns, compiters, cameras, and,an arsenal of protection. Little old ladies have nothing but their handbags and a quick tongue. Nobody ever talks about the defenseless,and the fact that murders are still on the streets.

As long as,CPD blames the victims instead of cleaning house...there will be NO trust! Simple as,that.

Shame on Escalante...shame on the Mayor....

Site breaks,down murder amd shootings by neighborhood.

Take a look. ,My neighborhood and ward ranks,#2. Where is yours?

http://heyjackass.com

Things are bad and getting worse. Do we pay approx 3 Bil including pensions?..and get these results???

Lets,hooe,the Justice Department can break,this deadlock. Lets,compare no snitch to the Blue Code of silence,and,analyze,which does more harm to the city and the budget.. Seems to me the Blue Code is what is causing the massive payouts oflost lawsuits...plus pensions plus salaries.

IG Report-shows weakness in City Departments

http://chicagoinspectorgeneral.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/2016-APR-Annual-Plan.pdf

This report confirms a lack of paperwork leads to difficulty in accountability. This is why the city is bankruot and our tax dollars squandered. Read the detail and compare to your block.

The IG city page has 3 components: fraud, feedback, suggestions.

Whenever you have difficulty getting service...give,the IG feedback,amd request he audit your service request. Request the crew,be penalized. For those who regularly falsify their reports ask,they be terminated and their pension revoked.

This is,the only way this bankrupt city can recover. Stop,the rampamt waste that gouges taxpayers while providing little or no service in high impact areas.

PLEASE read amdreport to the IG

All my complaints about service are explained in,this,report!
