this is just a shell game, to appease the media, and give the mayor a break. divide the 44 officers into three shifts, thats 15 officers per shift per 5 days. so around 12 officers per week. then spread them around precincts and you get one officer per precinct. not much change at all. thats the shell game.

That is not the message the bad guys hear. What they hear is go ahead with robberies and car theft as long as it's not a homicide have fun.

As the violence in Chicago rages on, Chicago police are having to pool their resources in order to focus on the murder crisis in the Windy City, leaving other victims of violent crime practically on their own and unarmed. More from CBS Chicago:

Starting this week, Chicago police are changing their responses to 911 calls. They’ll no longer come right away to reports of things like criminal damage to property, vehicle thefts, garage burglaries, or other crimes in which the suspect is no longer on the scene, and the victim isn’t in immediate danger.
