That was the score this weekend in Chicago. 46 shot (actually puncture wounds) nine dead, Chicago
stopped counting graze wounds and only counts actual bullet holes now, you don’t count if you get
your nose or ear shot off. Chicago is also a city three quarters of which is unsafe to walk in, referred
to locally as “Indian County”.
This is the crowning achievement of our politicians and the social engineers, who long ago decided that
big, bad, brutish policemen were no longer needed.. So it came to pass that in the 70’s they started forcing
females onto the department. That did away with height and strength requirements. They then decided that
the correct rainbow of colors was needed. To accomplish this they lowered the aptitude tests and created
quotas. That did away with intelligence and integrity requirements. Of course gays could not be excluded
either. The ideal candidate for promotion became a black transvestite with a Spanish surname who had
Our weapons were next on their agenda. Saps, zap gloves and the like were banned, little cans of pepper
spray were issued (what a joke). Our shotguns were moved from the front seat to the trunk, from the trunk
to the radio room and from there just disappeared.. New ammunition was issued which was so inadequate
it would ricochet off of car windshields. And God help you if you hit someone with your flashlight.
Finally the politicians got rid of the real Policemen. The Superintendent was fired and they hired an FBI
weenie who never worked the street in his life. He, in turn, fired the Commanders who were real Policemen
and replaced them with internal affairs weenies and gays and a decent sprinkling of color. Finally they
sweetened the retirement pot offering health care to anyone wishing retirement, thus eliminating the last few
remaining real Police. The result is a department that is befuddled, cow towed, weak and totally not feared by
the thugs and gang bangers, but oh so politically correct.
The City has succeeded in ridding itself of the brutish dinosaur cops of old and has replaced them with little
girls and yuppies who wouldn’t know a bad guy if he shit in their face. They also have a 50% increase in
homicides this year and dozens of people shot every weekend. There are more people shot each weekend in
Chicago than in Baghdad, Kabul or Detroit.
Rejoice oh liberals, you have gotten exactly what you wanted. Hope you enjoy it!
Sincerely, a retired old–school cop
