Welcome to the Club

I do have some sympathy for this guy, but what he is failing to understand, I think, is that he is no longer a police officer, so there ends his sovereign immunity with regards to "the Law." Sucks to be on the other side, dunnit?

He has but two options. Leave that socialist hell-hole (by way of moving to one of the freer municipalities in the area), where Hizoner Daley reigns, or, better yet, get the hell out of Illinois altogether. I suppose, alternatively, that spear-heading a campaign to expose Hizoner and the rest of the corrupt asswipes...oh, who am I kidding? This is Chicago, can it ever really get scrubbed enough to be considered clean?

I can only hope that he will keep his voice loud and clear, and get others to take notice about this. The rights that keep the citizenry safe were spelled out a long time ago and it is only the citizenry's active practice of those rights that will ensure that they are not trampled upon. Throw out the dictators, and regain your ground. We are not a spectators, but, as Jefferson was fond of pointing out, "...all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves in all cases..." active participants in the shaping and solidity of our republic. If our law can be written to prohibit a natural right, than it can surely be unwritten.

Stop trying to slap bandages on the open wounds of the bubonic infection. Instead, try curing the problem, not the symptom. Cure it by asking of the general citizenry to back up the cops, and become the cops themselves. Empower the citizenry instead of trying to subjugate them. Let them participate without threat of arrest under false color of the law, under some arcane notion of 'impeding' law enforcement.

If he doesn't like the weight of his chains, well, only he can throw off the shackles. I can only hope that he comes to his senses.
