Chicago Police Superintendent Denies Slowdown

We have reported about the rise in the number of murders and violent crimes in Chicago. There is increasing criticism of Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis for the spike in these numbers. Chicago police officers are seizing fewer guns and stopping gang members less frequently than before Superintendent Weiss arrived on the scene. The criticism is that these numbers are as a result of officers working less aggressively out of fear of being second guessed by him. There are rumors that the morale among the department is at an all time low.

On Saturday, Superintendent Weiss denied the rumors and that despite what some people are saying, his officers are well supported by their superiors and are highly motivated. We will keep an eye on the ever-increasing whispers and chatter concerning this potential problem inside the Chicago Police Department.
