Goal Seeking

Posted on April 14, 2016

Empty NetEvery workplace has a jagoff or two (in fact, you may be the office jag and not even know it). It’s likely that a workplace with 12,000 employees has it’s ‘fair share’ of jagoffs. Therefore, when the goal is to prove anyone who is melanin challenged in said workplace is a jagoff, it’s not surprising that some are found. Jag or not.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel left open the possibility Wednesday of dismantling the city’s police oversight agency and acknowledged that racism is a problem within the police force and other City Hall departments.

Emanuel’s remarks came shortly before his appointed Police Accountability Task Force released its recommendations for reforming the Chicago Police Department. The mayor was asked about portions of a draft executive summary of the task force’s report the Tribune first reported on Tuesday, including a recommendation to put in place a citywide reconciliation process beginning with the “superintendent publicly acknowledging CPD’s history of racial disparity and discrimination.”

“I don’t really think you need a task force to know we have racism in America, we have racism in Illinois or that there is racism that exists in the city of Chicago and obviously can be in our departments,” Emanuel said. “The question isn’t, ‘Do we have racism?’ We do. The question is, ‘What are you going to do about it?'”

Now that we know that certain police are the problem, we like to suggest the formation of the Neighborhood Accountability Task Force just to be sure that the remaining 99% of the stats found on the site are indeed the fault of the certain police officers.
