Re: “This Is Chicago, and Independence Is in the Eye of the Beholder

"Bad cops get the most publicity"; I suppose that this line has had much practice since the priest abuse scandal, where "bad priests" got the most publicity.

Look, the Chicago police force is a national joke. It is assumed that if you're arrested, you didn't have enough money to bribe the cops into letting you go. This reputation did not happen overnight; it's happened over years of lackadaisical self-governance.

I'm no fan of Daley's, but I would be willing to give the IPRA the benefit of the doubt if she weren't already carrying water. Why echo the Talking Barbie's "math is hard" point in her statement that "Rates are difficult—numbers are difficult.” Ma'am, that is your JOB -- disseminating and interpreting those rates to the public. You are an administrator.

Sigh. It just doesn't leave much hope.
