Aurora Suburban mayor proposes cop bonuses after murder-free year


Following the news that suburban Aurora did not record a single homicide in 2012, Mayor Tom Weisner is proposing a $500 bonus for all sworn police officers.
Weisner said that year after year, Aurora officers have put themselves on the line to snuff out violent crime.

“Having no homicides in 2012 is just one heck of an achievement. It’s really a culmination of the overall achievement of our police in reducing crime in general,” Weisner said. “My feeling was it just deserves recognition.”

The violent crime rate has decreased more than 30 percent from 2006 to 2011 and more than 50 percent in the past decade.

After more than 20 homicides were committed in 2002 – many attributed to gang violence – Aurora’s increased safety efforts have brought positive change with those numbers dropping to about two homicides per year between 2008 to 2011, and zero in 2012, the city said. Recorded firearm discharges also have decreased from 357 in 1996 to 61 in 2012.

“It is impossible to determine the value our officers provide to the community,” said Police Chief Greg Thomas. “This accomplishment is a reflection of the hard work of our officers, in partnership with other law enforcement agencies, city employees, citizen groups and residents.”

With 289 sworn officers, the total cost of the bonuses is expected to be $144,500, the city said.
“It is impossible to put a number to the value of what they have achieved, but even in this difficult economy, we should make the sacrifices necessary to reward this extraordinary accomplishment,” Weisner said.
The proposal will be sent to the City Council Finance Committee for consideration Tuesday. Weisner said he is confident the City Council will support the measure.

“I think our community will agree in general that this is a major accomplishment,” he said.

"So based on this logic, we should cut ALL CPD's salaries by 20% because we had a lot of homicides?

Nobody is doing their job."

-- 9.5

I think that would be the conclusion in Chicago.

Wow---a mayor who appreciates the police. I think I am getting the vapors.

Sorry little buddy. You can have your line back now.

Isn't Aurora the same city that decided to lay off some off their public works employees a couple of years ago due to financial problems?

The city then gave the lay off list to the media before telling any of the effected employees. The result was these employees found out they were being laid off in the Sun Times and Tribune.

Based on this example of the way they do business, I really cannot believe the City of Aurora had no murders last year given all of the illegals that Aurora coddles. I am sure that in Aurora a stiff with a knife sticking out of his chest was classified as a botched surgery.

So good luck with your bonus coppers, just check the mainstream media to find out if you have a job tomorrow.

Uhhh, no it isn't.

All it takes to show that this cash outlay can be justified is a side-by-side comparison of what it costs the taxpayers to treat even one Nignog or Beano that gets lit-up for cheating in a dice game or for looking at some bitch the wrong way.

With any luck, it will also stress the importance of proper sight alignment and shot placement to make sure the intended targets are mortally wounded. Burying a piece of shit on the taxpayers dime is substantially more cost effective than keeping Pookie or Vato Loco alive via multiple surgeries and extended stays in the ICU.

Additionally, allow me to propose that the Aurora PD be awarded an extra 10K for every mutt they put down.

Our Evil Mayor just got a little woody. How about deducting $500.00 from every CPD officer's paycheck for all the murders they let happen in 2012. More revenue enhancement.

CPD guys should pay 500 each for poor performance.

Actually, ALL CPD Exempts SHOULD have their salaries cut bigtime, but that would make their kickbacks tyo the Dummycrat Party of Crookago harder for them to make. Keeping Rank in Shitcago, when your a failed hack is easy as 1-2-$$$.

Politician. When they start getting more murders this year, and they will, this guy will be asking to reduce they base pay next year. Its assholes like this and other command types who want to run the police dept like a fucking buisness.

You will never be a real Jew little man!

Your rubric is sound but you need to move the decimal point two places to the right for all to be Kosher!

I am not a police officer...

If I shoot a nigger, can I get paid $500?

Sort of like a spin on the gun buy back bullshit programs the libs love. No cash for guns, just cash rewards for thinning the herd of the beast.

This is a modded version where the niggers are 'bought back' to a state of being made good and the party who does the deed can claim the $500 payment/reward/bounty for each successful act.
