Rahm Emanuel & Garry McCarthy know full well they can't fight the black violence on the streets being a few thousand cops short... So the Chicago Police Department will funnel millions of dollars to the black gang controlled CEASEFIRE organization who in turn will funnel money to the gang leaders on the streets to "BUY" less street shootings... FUCKING AMAZING! The CPD RAISED THE WHITE SURRENDER FLAG!
CeaseFire will work with Chicago cops to fight violent crime if the price is right...
CeaseFire Illinois, a group that works against violence, is being recruited by the city of Chicago as part of a pilot program to help reduce crime in two police districts, one on the West Side and the other on the South Side.
The city will give the group $1 million to hire 40 "interrupters" who will mediate conflicts in the Ogden and Grand Crossing districts, where gun violence has spiked.
"The amount of gun violence in our city is simply unacceptable," First Deputy Police Superintendent Alfonza Wysinger said at a news conference today at the Jackson Park Fieldhouse on the South Side. "We're not talking about numbers. We're talking about people."
The first-ever partnership between CeaseFire and the Chicago Police Department was first announced after a violent Memorial Day weekend that saw about 40 people shot, 10 of them fatally. So far this year, homicides are up 38 percent across the city and shootings up 12 percent.
The agreement, brokered by the Chicago Department of Public Health, will go into effect on July 13, Wysinger said.
Some police officers --- including Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy -- have voiced concern about the partnership, primarily because CeaseFire is known to hire convicted felons to mediate street conflicts. ******Supt. Garry McCarthy said he supported the partnership but was "not a big fan" of the way CeaseFire works.******
