Mayoral Candidate Would Destroy Gang Database Because It Has Too Many Minorities

Chicago mayoral candidate Toni Preckwinkle has vowed to make police accountable to the community.

Chicago, IL – One candidate for mayor of Chicago has said that if she’s elected, she will dismantle the gang database and cancel construction of a new police and fire academy.

“Our highest priority is curriculum and content, not buildings and amenities,” Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle told the Chicago Sun Times.

Democrat Preckwinkle said that, if elected, she planned to call a halt to the construction a $95 million police and fire academy and focus instead of overhauling the training curriculum of the police department.

“When I was first elected as president of the county, we put a hold on our capital projects to look at how they relate to our priorities. We need to look at this,” she said. “We need to improve training, but the question is do we need a new facility to do that.”

She said she planned to implement the Chicago police consent decree which will require significant retraining for officers.

Preckwinkle’s plan – called “Building a Safer Chicago” – is focused on a creating a more “accountable and effective” police department, the Chicago Sun Times reported.

She plans to create a Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice to oversee law enforcement task forces.

The office would also be tasked with overseeing community leaders and subject experts who are responsible for coming up with solutions to public safety issues, including gun violence, juvenile justice and neighborhood stabilization, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

Preckwinkle’s plan is modeled after the New York City office of the same name.

She said she plans to get rid of the city’s gang database because it is made up of mostly people of color, and claims there was “no criteria for how to get on it and many don’t know if they’re on it and there’s no way to get off of it.”

“It’s part of the culpability of the Police Department,” Preckwinkle said. “People don’t know how they got there and it’s used to damage their lives. That’s a real challenge to police-community relations.”

The candidate’s plan called for changes to the behavior of Chicago police across the board, but has assigned no responsibility to the criminals in the city.

If elected, she has said she will terminate Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson, the Chicago Sun Times reported.

Preckwinkle said she would support a proposal for a Community Commission for Public Safety and Accountability.

The seven-member commission that she supports would be elected by the public and have the authority to appoint the Chicago Police Board, the chief administrator of the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, and recommend candidates for superintendent of the Chicago Police Department, the Chicago Sun Times reported.

Preckwinkle also said she would put more resources into Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy (CAPS) to help rebuild trust between the police and the community.

“We have to have leadership in the department that actively works to root out [the code of silence in the Police Department],” she said. “If we look at the devastating stories of actions by Jon Burge, [Detective Reynaldo] Guevara and Sergeant Ronald Watts, those folks were protected by their fellow officers. We have to create a police department where bad conduct isn’t tolerated.”

Preckwinkle pointed to her history of supporting criminal justice reform as one of her qualifications for mayor.

Maybe there wouldn't be so many minorities in the gang database if they were not in the gangs breaking the laws to begin with!

That's because whitey doesn't waste time or effort joining gangs and running the streets for the most part.....

And the exodus from Chicago and Illinois accelerates. And who,will they blame if crime rates skyrocket if these Communist agendas are approved and implemented? I Know the answer blame the President. Dims in control of Urban cesspools are never to blame. Chicago has been under Dims control how long? Barry came from where? Barry’s wingman was mayor how long? They never realize that when their socialist programs fail the answer is not to move further left.

Looking at the picture it is hard to determine if that is a he or she. I wonder what murder rate in the minority population is acceptable to it.

Hopefully a gang members bullet will find her before a cop or other innocent person, who doesn't support her pro-crime approach, gets shot.

She will also require that cao and gowns (with tossle of course!) be stocked in every lockup so that when the 'wrongly singled out people of color' are booked they are photograghed looking like valedictorians so their families dont have find such pictures after the wrongful arrests.

Poets will be hired to write and submit many differnet bios for use by the valedictorians so that the public and the victims dont misrepresent any longstanding criminal history.

Since the Obama administration every mayor, councilman, and city administrator has gone to all different layers to put the crime problem on police, that they've tied the hands to. It's a hard job, but yes there is your 10 percent, they get it there every day trying to help the citizens, and the leaders do every thing they can to help the criminal element.

Ever since I became a police officer in the early 80's there have been people like this woman (?) who wanted to create a kinder, gentler, police department to appease the minorities. The fact is you could start your shift by going out and hugging a gangbanger and they would still hate the police. There is very little you can do to establish good will with people who break the law on a daily basis. They hate the police and there is nothing you can do to change that. Think of it as good versus evil. Certainly eliminating a gang data base that is probably used daily to solve crime is not the answer.

How does she expect the police to do their job if you take away the tools this woman is foolish! It's not anyone's fault that gangs are comprised of minorities, the gang data base is for police use any way so it doesn't hurt them

I guess she has not read or learned about the gangs in Chicago. Who does she think commits the most violent crimes, church members? Who controls the housing projects and deals drugs, sportsmen? Who does not obey or recognize the restrictive gun laws, housewives? What an idiot.

Why not just disband both agencies? Apparently, your constituents have no need for law enforcement. And they can start their own bucket brigades.

This is a great new strategy! Cater to the shitbags of your community and they will come out in droves to elect you! Now all she’ll have to do is raise taxes on the working people and give it all away to the people who don’t feel like working and she will be a perfect democrat! It’s the new American way!
