Chicago Government Threatens to Steal Cops' Retirement Benefits if They Resign to Avoid the Covid Vaccine

Hey guys, Trump was a dangerous authoritarian, so we have to elect Democrats. Pass it on.

The chief of police announced this threat, but directed questions about it to Lori Lightfoot's office. Which means the directive actually came from Groot.

The Chicago Police Department's top cop has threatened to deny retirement benefits to those who choose to retire from the job rather than comply with the city's COVID-19 vaccination policy, according to local reports.

Chicago Police Superintendent David O. Brown said that those officers who do choose to retire rather than follow City Hall’s orders "may be denied retirement credentials," the Chicago Tribune reported, citing Brown’s Sunday memo.

A spokesperson for the police department would not comment or confirm the report to Fox News and referred further questions to the office of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

The Lightfoot administration required that city workers report their COVID-19 vaccination status or be placed on unpaid leave, setting a deadline for this past Friday. Those who did not submit their vaccination status were told they would be placed on unpaid leave. Lightfoot said the no-pay status would not take effect until after the weekend because confirming compliance would take time.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, Lightfoot said she was giving those who did not report their status "one last opportunity to do the right thing." But during that same appearance, she confirmed that police brass at CPD headquarters were questioning its personnel.

Chicago's police union has instructed cops to refuse to report their vaccine status, in order to defeat the mandate. It is estimated that 65% of cops in Chicago are vaccinated, "lagging far behind" other city police departments.

A law enforcement coalition has warned that Chicago could face a shortage of cops if Chicago continues side-lining cops. And suburban cops have warned: Don't count on us coming in to Chicago to replace the police you put on leave.

Chicago could face a shortage of police officers in emergencies due to the dispute over the city's vaccine mandates, prompting an effort to gather information about how many suburban agencies could be drafted in to provide backup.

A statewide law enforcement coalition told suburban police officials on Monday that the Chicago Police Department could need assistance in the event of an emergency, should large numbers of officers be taken off the job, the Chicago Tribune reported.


The help would be in case of an emergency like a plane crash or tornado, not to answer routine calls or patrol streets, Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System (ILEAS) executive director James Page told the Tribune.

Page added that ILEAS is only gathering information on how many officers in the region would be able to help and how long it would take to deploy them at this stage.

ILEAS has been contacted for additional comment.

Some sheriffs have already said they would not be willing to send their deputies to the city.

Kane County Sheriff Ron Hain said he would not send any personnel to Chicago unless an officer is under "direct duress" because he does not support what he described as the "slanted agenda" of the city's politics.

They are.

Bf went to doc yesterday to get a medical exemption...not even to prevent him from getting the jab at his company...but to delay it due to his having just recovered from the 'ro.

Doc went to CDC website. He had seen that they recommend waiting 90 days before a recovered pyrsyn get jabbed. They took down that guidance. That very simple, non-controversial guidance.

So the doc said he couldn't give my boyfriend a note to delay the jab. It was just a delay, and the doc wouldn't do it because the CDC wants to kill everybody.

Yeah combined with the illegal immigration thing, it's obvious their leadership is not actually scared of Covid or true believers in the ultimate efficacy of the vaccine. What's the angle? If just for money for pharma, they don't really need to get everyone, a regular booster is plenty.

I don't know this but I THINK there is a provision in the contract that caps the amount of retirements granted in a given amount of time. Again, I'm sorry I have no details at all, but I think it was designed to not allow too many vacant positions at once to allow replacements to train. I guess this is the avenue they are trying to deny benefits?

OK, so follow me: I wonder if the 'vaccine' is a trap- but it is a psychological one. You make it psychologically toxic to one particular ideology. You make sure through your actions that this particular unfavored ideology will not take it. It does nothing that you SAY it does. Then your chums in the great commie state of Wuhan release another virus that the 'vaccine' DOES protect against- but that is highly virulent and communicable to the unvaccinated. You then have successfully eliminated/reduced your ideological enemies.

This one I do not buy. One, it is too clever by half. Two, it would require a level of complicity, insane levels of competence and really evil on the part of those making the vaccines. Evil I can buy. Complicity I can buy. Cleverness and competence are hard to bet on.

* Tons of Chicago cops said, "no thanks"
* Those cops that declined will be fired ("unpaid leave") and if they choose to quite and retire, their pensions are forfeit (assuming that this passes the inevitable legal battle to follow)
* The Chicago PD, now disastrously undermanned, will use emergency procedures to draft cops from other agencies and departments to cover the Chicago shortfall

I suspect the other agencies and departments are gonna say "yeah, no." At least a lot of them will. It'll be interesting.

Of course they can and do, routinely, inflict enormous social and economic and freedom damage in that manner (executives, and "courts"), but especially in a sad run-down state like IL, public employee benefits are probably among the most sacrosanct things under the "law", and certainly under the prevailing political regime.

See: Europe. The EU has long despised Ireland's corporate tax rates. Ireland is a corporate HQ home for a ton of companies because their taxes are low. This pisses off other EU countries pretty hugely.

162 Personally think Obama is the false prophet if he's anything. The anti-christ is supposed to be a Jew. If you look at the 12th imam myths/prophesies, some muslims apparently believe that a muslim reincarnation of the 12th imam will come and help Jesus restore Jerusalem to the Jews and rebuild the temple. And then Jesus will sit in Dome of the Rock and execute his enemies.

163 OT but speaking of liberal insanity, the way that Biden will pay for his free communist bill is to raise the corporate tax rate.
But won't that make American businesses less competitive?
_____________

It will also make everything that people buy more expensive, because corporations will just pass those taxes on to consumers by raising prices.

But don't worry, Americans, all these trillions of dollars' worth of new government spending on "free" goodies for welfare queens and illegal aliens is not going to cost anybody anything at all! Only those rich, evil corporations!

With the left it's always about the acquisition of power. Follow the power. Is the goal for the Nat Guard to take over policing? - - More power for governors. Or for the feds to take over local policing? - - More power for the federal swamp. Posted by: 29Victor at October 20, 2021 11:32 AM (BJKQV)


It's certainly a coinky-dink that after almost 3 years of hearing "defund the police" they've found an alternate method for getting them gone. SF supposedly lost 120 cops - and suddenly reporting on that stopped. Why crime has skyrocketed is a complete mystery. They don't even bother hiding it - they just go from one smash-and-grab to the next until they find what works.

the solution, nationalize truck drivers, force them to take an 80% paycut while overriding California's onerous trucking rules.

Back before my time in high school, they would have knife fights in the girl's locker room after swim class, not knifes really but metal picks before those were banned, and they'd empty the girls out into the gym and did that once without the big divider screen and all the boys on the gym floor saw the semi-nekked girls.

What can truly be done?

The only thing that comes to mind would be a specialty pharmaceutical company that offers generics / alternatives which do not use fetal cells in the production or testing. Unfortuately, with so many that relied on fetal cells for development and experimentation, the whole medication is tainted by the ill-gotten gains of that work. Do you start from scratch on those and re-do it ethically?

I have a friend and coworker who carries an albuterol emergency inhaler. He's learned lately that it was tested on fetal tissue. He'd like to get rid of it, but being an asthmatic, this isn't wise. If a company offered an "ethically clean" alternative to the inhaler he carries, I imagine he would switch to it in a nanosecond.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

When the R.C. military bishop said it was justified to refuse the vaxx on religious grounds based on personal conscience the couple of weeks ago, the report I read about it mentioned that the R.C. Church will accept the use of a life-saving vaccine/treatment made using dubious methods [I've forgotten the literal phrase used] if there are no alternatives available made from righteous sources. Maybe that will comfort your friend even if he's not R.C. himself?

Posted by: rhennigantx at October 20, 2021 12:01 PM (yrol0)


IIRC the pension question was addressed and found by the courts to be an unbreakable element in the public employees' employment agreement in Illinois.
Any union should think twice about allowing this to go ahead since it will give a pretext to pulling the pension from any member who gets in trouble somehow.

If you can fire that member and save the cost of the pension the value of going through 3 years of procedure to fire for cause becomes economically beneficial.

Of course, this was inevitable, though. COVID-19 is the stated pretext, but it was going to be something. The retirements are what keeps the cops onside. At some point, the government was going to have make it abundantly clear that the pensions are contingent with full compliance with their orders *no matter what those orders may be.*

This will weed out refuseniks and make sure that anyone coming in to the system going forward stays onside - for everything.

A lot of similar shit is happening in the military. They need to ensure the remaining people, no matter how reduced in numbers, are going to follow orders when the time comes for, you know... the thing.

Even American Jews, who have a history of being targeted by socialists, and who lopsidedly vote for the democratic socialists of the democong party, aren't this blithely stupid

456 "The Chicago Police Department's top cop has threatened to deny retirement benefits to those who choose to retire from the job rather than comply with the city's COVID-19 vaccination policy, according to local reports."

This may be the first time in history an Illinois politician addressed reducing pensions.

457 Not endorsing the threat, but I am intrigued by the precedent it would set for other states trying to tackle public pension underfunding.

461 The Dems are getting what they want, so they'll try for a little more. They want to push out all these cops, military and government workers, because they'll replace them with their own brownshirts. It's funny for thre first few minutes to see thr city lose all its workers, but then when the military and police are just filled with antifa, who have access to weapons and freedom to use them, it won't be so funny. These people need to stand their ground and sue the shit out of these cities, until they get to keep their jobs, unvaccinated, and with a nice hefty lawsuit bonus. Then they need to start working to remove the commies from office.

464 The son got his two Moderna shots, he had too to do business in California. So the other day at his doctor for a routine exam he had a normal ragweed sinus allergy congestion and the doctors office made him wait outside and do his exam by phone in the parking lot.
What was the point of getting that shot?
