Democrat Paul Vallas shows that making moves to restoring law and order to our streets – and some sanity – is not a Republican talking point…Â it’s something shared by almost everyone except those infected with the woke mind virus.Â Everyone wants safe streets in their neighborhoods and safe neighborhoods where their kids can play without risk of getting shot by gang members shooting at one another.
“There is an utter breakdown of law and order,” Vallas said.
Vallas’ remarks about the breakdown of law and order certainly tweaked Lil’ Lori.Â Lori’s lightweight mouthpiece complained that Vallas’ plan to restore law and order to Chicago “was written” by the Chicago Police FOP union President John Catanzara.
Catanzara.Â Now there’s a name we like and respect.Â And Mayor Grumpypants can’t stand.
Unfortunately, under Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s inept and incompetent leadership (and that’s putting it nicely), crime has exploded everywhere.Â Maybe that’s why she and her girlfriend/wife spend their weekends at their Michigan home.Â And why she leaves her mouthpiece “spokeswoman” to deal with the media while Lori and her fam hang in a not-crime-infested town in the “Great Lakes State.”
And would it surprise anyone to hear that her police chief flies back home to Dallas most weekends?Â Yeah, he’s about as competent as Lightfoot and that’s probably why she hired him.Â After all, how embarrassing would it be for Lori Lightweight to be outshined and outclassed by her police chief – a chief that actually showed leadership, charisma and a little compassion for victims of crime.Â A chief that would stand behind his cops.Â A leader who would let his police officers police the city, locking up bad guys and making the city safe again instead of crucifying them for defending themselves against bad people trying to kill them.
So yes, Paul Vallis released his plan to save Chicago.Â Yeah, he’s a political candidate.Â Yeah, it’s just talk at this point.Â But he’s talking the talk.Â Voters should consider letting him walk the walk.
Because clearly Lori Lightfoot thinks she’s doing a great job.Â If you doubt that, just ask her.Â She’ll tell you “the only rational choice is to return me to office.”
Re-electing low-information Lori a rational choice?Â Maybe if you work for her.Â Everyone else?Â Not so much.
Here’s Paul Vallis’ plan.Â You could do this pretty much in every city where crime is spiraling out of control.Â And 27 of the 30 of America’s most crime-ridden big cities are run by Democrats.Â Yes, soft-on-crime, intellectual lightweights like Lori Lightfoot.
From the Sun-Times:
â€˘ Restoring officers to a â€śnormal and predictableâ€ť work schedule instead of making them work a string of 12-hour shifts and canceling days off on holidays and whenever crime spikes.
â€˘ Waiving Chicagoâ€™s residency requirement for veteran officers â€śin good standingâ€ť with at least 15 years on the job and forÂ police recruits until they complete their 18-month probationary period. Vallas, who served as an unpaid adviser to the Fraternal Order of Police negotiating team, also cracked the door open to eliminating the residency rule entirely after extensive discussions with all city unions.
â€˘ Streamlining the process for qualified and experienced officers to transfer to CPD from other departments and inviting officers who have left over the last three years to return to CPD with the same seniority they had when they left. Vallas would also create a CPD Reserve of officers who left the force to become firefighters or accept other jobs.
â€˘ Rebuilding the ranks of detectives to â€ś10% of overall staffingâ€ť and supplementing the detective division with retired officers working as analysts to help raise clearance rates for homicides and shootings and protect crime victims and witnesses.
â€˘ Using helicopters and drones to stop carjackings and vehicle thefts, and eliminating a foot chase policy â€śso convoluted and restrictiveâ€ť it has literally turned into a â€śno-chase policy.â€ť
â€˘ Establishing a â€śwell-resourced, CTA Police Transit unitâ€ť run by â€śthe equivalent of a district commanderâ€ť and staffed by 700 police officers whose salaries would be bankrolled by the $100 million a year Vallas believes the CTA is â€śwastingâ€ť on private security.
â€˘ Ending the â€śfriends and familyâ€ť promotions practices, known as merit promotion, restored by Brown to help diversify the ranks.
Yeah, friends, family, and sex paramours/friends with benefits…Â Like the former booze-hound police chief Eddie Johnson reportedly promoting his little sex toy Nakia Fenner not once, but twice with “Merit” promotions.Â At least he married her eventually.Â And then, we might be mistaken, but wasn’t Eddie getting some more “friends with benefits” action from another female officer who was his “bodyguard” or driver?Â So many sex scandals in CPD leadership it’s hard to keep them straight.
A little googling and what did we find?
Disgraced former Chicago Police Chief Eddie Johnson turns himself in after his wife ‘called for help claiming he’d pushed her down the stairs’
Former CPD Supt. Eddie Johnson, 61, allegedly shoved his wifeÂ Nakia Fenner, 44
Police visited their home on Friday night but no injuries were reportedÂ
Johnson told a reporter the next day: ‘We had a disagreement. We are fine’
Comes after Johnson’s former security guard accused him of sexual harassmentÂ
Cynthia Donald is who Johnson was caught kissing last October in a bar
She was his security guard and part-time driver
Now, she says he sexually harassed and assaulted her for several yearsÂ
He was fired after being found asleep at the wheel of his car drunkÂ
He’d had the equivalent to 10 alcoholic drinks at the timeÂ
â€˘ Approving a strong public nuisance ordinance that uses hefty fines and vehicle impoundment to punish looters, flash mobs and others for lesser crimes the stateâ€™s attorney wonâ€™t prosecute. Vallas denied that the public nuisance ordinance and a reinvigorated municipal prosecutions section within the cityâ€™s Law Department would be tantamount to stop-and-frisk.
â€˘ Revamping a background check process the inspector generalâ€™s office has concluded â€śscreens out too many quality applicantsâ€ť simply because of the â€śassociations that come fromâ€ť the neighborhoods â€śwhere they were raised.â€ť
â€˘ Using the mayorâ€™s office to convene monthly summits of law enforcement officials at the federal, state, county and city levels.
No matter who gets elected next spring, Chicago will remain a cesspool until voters have had enough with Kim Foxx not prosecuting criminals.Â But the reforms in the police department Vallis proposes will help towards improving the quality of life in Murder City USA.

Beetlejuice actually looks a tad mentally retarded. That could explain things.
He sounds almost reasonable. Which will make him unacceptable to the low-information crowd that seems more swayed by skin color and sex preference than competence.
