Chicago Cops Blast Mayor for Favoritism and Racism

By GOPUSA Staff

A group of Chicago police officers are stepping forward and have filed a lawsuit against Mayor Rahm Emanuel. The suit claims they were "demoted from the mayor's security detail when Rahm Emanuel took office because they weren't politically connected and aren't black."

"The color of your skin is your sin," the police commander told one of the plaintiffs when asked why he was being demoted and the black officers were not, according to the suit.

The suit, filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Illinois, contains explosive accusations that the officers had their civil rights violated after Emanuel took office last year.

The officers charge that shortly after Emanuel was elected in February 2011, the city government began to bring people associated with the Emanuel campaign on board -- both those who volunteered on Emanuel's security detail during the campaign and others who were "politically involved."

      The thing is … If they win their fight it would stand to reason to put them back on the Governor’s security detail.
      Having pissed them off so throrughly, he’s probably afraid to have them anywhere near him.

      If I was on that security detail and heard that somebocy was going to take a shot at him … I’d find an excuse to get him to stand still.

      Hard to get smart when you’re under a tombstone – like the majority of Chicago voters.

      This sounds like the only cases the ACLU will investigate.
      Many jobs were acquired because of Affirmative Action, never mind the lack of qualifications.

      I think it’s very obvious that Chick-fil-A doesn’t have Chicago’s values. They are a Christian business. I think the Christian people of Chicago need to rise up and kick him and his cronies out of business.

    Rahm Emanuel definitely is not making Chicago any cleaner nor is he improving the run down trashed buildings that are and have been slums for years and empty for years, only finding many gangs and drugs are found in many now – Rahm Emanuel is not good for Chicago nor is he for any other city – nor was he good for Washington when he was kissing Obama’s arse with the MSM! GOD help America!

    Another one of the Obama group who practices Chicago thuggery!
    Looks as if Napolitano may have to resign…where did Obama find all of these thugs and he has taken them to Washington with him. Obama has got to go and empty all of his safe deposit boxes with all of his hidden record and take them with him to the unknown!

    About ten years ago I was on a grand jury listening to people charged with crimes. We had 2 thick volumes of state law and one of the chapters dealt with Hate Crimes. I was surprised to discover Hate Crimes only apply to select groups of people who are victims rather than the nature of the crime. To me that needs to be changed to reflect equal treatment under the law and this same principle applies to other biases in our society.

      Exactly. Hate crimes are not for white Christian, god fearing Americans. Hate crimes are for the Black and Hispanic, period. when the hell did America make a sharp left turn.? Get this Kenyan born Muslim,. Arab freak out of here.

    I bet the residents of chicago wish they could afford a security detail to keep them safe from the criminal element, but in chicago only those who are politically connected can have details and carry guns for self defence, the rest of the sheep are on thier own.

    Rahm remains Obama’s point man for Chicago! His office for mayor was preplanned from the Whitehouse while he was working for the president and he is still working for him. His move to Chicago was to lay ground work for Obama care. He is making millions on real estate that the government will purchase for Health care offices and Rahm is selecting hand picked cronies for the bureaucrats that will be running those offices. When the Obama care goes into operation Rahm will have a cut on every thing from medical services, medical unions, medical equipment and any thing that has government involvement for health care. Those Police officers that were turned away had nothing to do with race but everything to do with honesty. They were too honest to work for Rahm Emanuel! When Obama returns to Chicago after his defeat this November he will become the mega millionaire of health care and Rahm will share in the windfall. They will be the health cares first to be in the one percent club.

    This is newsworthy? The former ballerina and Obama homie, who is now Mayor of Chicago, is a corrupt racist? Like Inspector Renault in “Casablanca”, I’m shocked, just shocked.

    Why aren’t the people out in the streets, demanding Rham do something about the murder rate, which is sky-high in Chicago?

    I feel sorry for the people – but marylou45 said it all – You reap what you sow.

    Obama’s ‘Change for America’ is code for turning this Country over to Middle-Eastern values. He, and his cohorts are developing strategies to circumvent the Constitution. Our Forefathers’ dreams of a Nation that can do anything, and citizens become something, is now traded away without discussion.

    Billions upon billions of US Dollars sent to the very people who will see us dead, and the influx of Obama voters streaming into this USA capitalizing on the heels of known campaign fodder.

    Illinois is more corrupt than any State in the US. There is much more to this Chicago Police story, and is the root for Obama’s Mayoral selection.
