Well, if you’re into property crimes, I guess Chicago is the place you want to operate, because according to an article from the Chicago tribune, the police are going to pic and choose which calls they will respond to in order to free up cops’ time;
The Chicago Police Department hopes to free up the equivalent of 44 officers a day by no longer dispatching cops for certain crimes, like burglaries and car thefts in which the offender is no longer at the scene and no one is in immediate danger.
Police confirmed the change, which takes effect Sunday. Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy told aldermen last year he was considering a move in that direction.
So, it’s like a reverse-Giuliani strategy wherein former NY Mayor Giuliani had cops cracking down on jay-walkers – if you watch the video, the police won’t be responding to anything that is a property crime…or if the criminal can leave the scene fast enough. So, let’s recap – the citizens can’t have any weapons to protect themselves or their homes and the cops won’t be coming. Yeah, no, I don’t see how any of that can be a problem, at all. Chicago should be crime-free within a week.
