You already know about the violence in Chicago. Here’s a tidbit that shows that when the police organize an informal job walkout, that the chaos becomes worse. That’s a logical fact that really doesn’t need explaining.
Imagine the effects if a general strike by Americans against the rigged system were to be held. People sick of the System have more power than they realize. The Chicago police understand that.
Excerpt from Zerohedge
Last week, we noted the risk of a violent Labor Day weekend in Chicago with the Fraternal Order of Police urging its rank and file members to deny overtime requests for the holiday weekend “to protest the continued disrespect of Chicago Police Officers and the killings of Law Enforcement Officers across our Country” (see “As Chicago Violence Soars, Officers Told To Stay Home In Protest Of ‘Continued Disrespect Of Police'”).
While it’s unknown how many cops did choose to stay home and ignore overtime requests, there was a clear spike in violence over the long holiday weekend with a total of 65 people shot and 13 of them killed. Chicago recorded a total of 481 shootings and 91 homicides in August which tied for the most the city had seen in a single month in 20 years. In fact, according to the Chicago Tribune, the Labor Day weekend was the deadliest of the three holiday weekends of the summer with 13 killed versus 6 over the Memorial Day weekend 5 over the Fourth of July weekend.
