    "Odd Contradiction – Chicago Officials Support ‘Defund Police’ Movement But Cancel Police Day’s Off and Require 12hr Extended Shifts…

    Posted on June 14, 2020 by sundance

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has previously down-played the violence, looting and riots in the city; while simultaneously telling city aldermen they were over-hyping the problems and issues within the city. Oddly enough Mayor Lightfoot said this while begging the looted merchants not to abandon the city… so that was always an odd juxtaposition.

    Today, the contradiction gets even more weird as the entire Chicago police department; you know, those horrid people Lightfoot previously disparaged and said were unneeded; are now required to work their day’s-off and extend to 12 hour shifts.

    CHICAGO – Chicago police officers on Sunday were once again ordered to work 12-hour shifts and have their days off canceled amid some protesting that has persisted in parts of the city following George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police nearly three weeks ago.

    […] Until further notice, Chicago officers who are on active duty and not on vacation will have to work the 12-hour shifts — a normal shift is about 8½ hours — and come in on their days off, the Chicago police spokesman, Luis Agostini, said Sunday morning. (read more)

    Isn’t the purpose of ‘defunding‘ the police, essentially to have less policing? Apparently Chicago is doing the ‘defunding‘ thing backwards.

    They are going to need a lot more money to pay those officers working 12-hr shifts and their days off. At the rate of time and a half! Take that BLM.

    Wonder if they are trying to physically and emotionally burn them out with excessive hours?

    The party of "defund the police" and "we are going to take your guns away" strikes again.

    I think the donkeys are really crapping in their own pants by letting this get so far out of hand.

    This Chicago mayor is a very odd looking human being. She wouldn't need a lot of makeup to fit in at the Star Wars bar.

    Groot thinks she is doing a good job at managing all city departments.
    Really?

    Same gal who begged business not to make the food deserts bigger while fueling the riots.

    The "officials" just want the money to go into their pockets.
