Chicago police no longer respond to certain 911 calls

Quote:
CHICAGO (CBS) – Starting this week, Chicago police are changing their responses to 911 calls. They’ll no longer come 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.

The move will free up the equivalent of 44 police officers a day for patrol duties. CBS 2′s Jim Williams spoke to some Chicagoans who think it’s the wrong move for the police.

On the block where burglars broke into a home on Christmas Day, Carmen Curio has a strong opinion on the city’s new 911 response plan. “I think that’s ridiculous. I think if there’s a burglary, they’ve got to come. It’s what we pay for. They have to come,” she said.

Car Theft
Robbery
Burglaries
Vandalism
Check Fraud
Lewd/Obscene phone calls
Threatening phone calls without imminent danger.

The basic language of what they said means that if you tell them the criminal is gone/isn't there at that moment, they're going to take a report over the phone and forget you exist. I guess being the city with the most murders in the united states and coming close to being one of the most dangerous cities in the world requires you to tell the people that aren't running around killing people to screw off every once in a while. The even more ironic thing about it is their gun laws are so incredibly strict, yet now they're saying not only will we not be able to be there to defend you when you actually need it because we won't let you defend yourself, we won't be showing up afterwards unless you've been hurt.

Holy shit, this is just horrible.

I'm sorry, but I can't think of one good thing that can come from this, at all. This is just an all around HORRIBLE idea.

cool now they can spend more time putting black people in jail for drugs while the disarmed citizens get fucked

people still think the government is competent or has your interests at heart? people still think gun control is a good idea?

Love it when black people whine about how they think they're hard done by.

Re: Chicago police no longer respond to certain 911 calls

I can understand a few of these. Lewd phone calls, bounced and forged checks. Fine.

But car theft and burglary? Don't those seem to be very serious crimes with lots of property on the line that need quick responses and detective work to eventually apprehend a suspect?
