To hear Mayor Berry or Chief Eden spew their politics out of their mouth, they will tell you how much they care for their Officers and how they are HEROES.
Really Mayor, really Chief?
You steal the Officers
money and give it to your top administration. You make your Officers
work without a contract. You have your Officers working under the most
dangerous conditions without enough Officers to supply back up to their
fellow Officers. Now have a very strong rumor that one of your majors
was involved in an unauthorized vehicle chase and it is being covered
Do you really wonder why the Officers have no respect for each of
you ? You cover up any situation that may not let you look good in the
media. You always use the same old excuse. We can not comment because it
is still under investigation.
We recently saw how in Chicago,
Mayor Rahm Emanuel fired the Police Chief Garry McCarthy for not
releasing a video of a Police Officer shooting a young man sixteen times
a year ago. Was the Chief a scapegoat? We at the EYE think that is in
some ways the case. Emanuel was up for reelection when the incident
happened. The Chief however should of done the right thing. Now lets
look at home. Officer Jacob Grant was shot by his lieutenant Greg
Brachle eight times during an undercover drug bust nearly a year ago.
The Department wont release any information saying the case is under
investigation. Does this look similar to Chicago ? The only thing that
came out of the brain trusts at The City is The City Attorney saying it
is partly Officer Grant's fault. WHAT !!!?
Officer Grant has to sue the
City to make them do right by him and his family. This is always the
City's game plan.....make them sue. Drive the Officer into more debt and
know a lawsuit will take years. Well it will take years for an Officer,
but if you are a criminal The City will settle as soon as they start to
cry. Officer Grant perhaps if you were shot eight more times the City
may do the right thing. We take care of our returning Military and we
should. Why do we not take care of our first responders?
Chief Eden keep your lying mouth shut. Officer Webster lost his life
protecting us. Everyone is asking where was his backup? Our EYES
inside the department tell us that when an Officer calls in a license
plate that a Dispatcher sees is stolen that Dispatcher sends that
Officer backup. So where was Officer Webster backup? The City plays
the same old excuse. Officers please remember your training. Your most
important job is to go home at the end of your watch. We at the Eye
know you will continue to run in the direction of the gun shots, because
that is who you are. Sadly, this administration and its "leaders" will use your bodies to shield themselves from the bullets of politics.
The Piercing Truth
This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization.
