Despite building a $165 million police palace with massive corruption to enrich cronies and a bonus scheme by Mayor Tom Weisner and police brass, including Kristen Ziman, to exploit a temporary "zero murder" stat, the FBI says Aurora is the top Chicago area suburb for crime.
That's right. Aurora is second to none for crime.
We can't wait for the press conferences, publicity stunts, photo ops from the same taxpayer-funded fools who knowingly ignored common sense and prudent public policy while real crime was still alive and well with actual police officers dealing with it on the streets instead of the palace.
In a story about the Top 10 Most Dangerous Towns in Illinois by CBS Chicago, Aurora ranks #1 in crime for suburbs:
"For suburban Chicago, Aurora is ranked No. 1 with a crime rate of 601 per 100,000 residents."
Kristen Ziman, a commander at the Aurora Police Department and co-founder of Blue Coward, a scheme to exploit taxpayers with a Weisner campaign crony, argued vigorously during the debate on the police bonus scheme that it was "justified."
She cannot be reached for comment.
We've also reached out to Mayor Tom Weisner. Neither he nor anyone that he gathered for photo-ops and publicity stunts to exploit a crime stat two years ago can be reached.
