When Is Enough Really Enough?

Since the shootings of cops in Dallas, not much has changed.

Protests, divisions and CYA speeches by politicians.

Cops have continued to kill or injure civilians.

More cops have been killed or injured, including now Baton Rouge.

Racism, excuses and lots of outrage but very little, if any, actual change.

Aurora Corrupt Cop Kristen Ziman, the wine-drinking, political slut appointed as "chief" of the Aurora Police Palace, said after this latest crisis in Baton Rouge, "enough."

Not surprisingly, Little Kristen didn't say a word when Baton Rouge cops mistreated protesters in the past week.

She was also silent on the hundreds of people killed by cops last year, unless you count defending the cops in Ferguson or speaking up for her late hero, rotten cop Joe Gliniewicz of Fox Lake.

Most importantly, as the citizens of Aurora were being shot and killed the past couple years with a massive 150% increase, she diminished it all calling it simply an "uptick."

If hundreds of shootings of citizens in our community are just an "uptick" does that mean TWO incidents of cops being shot in Dallas and Baton Rouge are just minor sneeze?

If you follow the idiotic views of Kristen Ziman, then yes.

However, if you have any common sense, you know that ANY act of unjust violence, no matter who is who, is not acceptable.

This is the problem. We choose right and wrong based upon who is who.

Little Kristen operates in a world where cops are "family" and everyone else is not.

We say everyone, including good cops, are family but if you are a bad member of the public or a bad cop like Little Kristen or her corrupt sidekick, Chris Tunney, you are out.

We don't need any further killing of and/or by cops or "upticks," corruption, propaganda and excuses by anyone.

Instead, we need serious change, reform of the criminal "justice" system and a real cop with integrity, competence and common sense running the Aurora Police Department so we get the good cops and good public on the same side before the next shooting in Aurora.

Enough is enough when it comes to the chronic crime and corruption of our community.

Maybe Little Kristen should gulp her next bottle of wine for that on her way out of the palace.

I don't think police go out looking to kill anyone. There are no family values in some communities and many don't understand the concept of being civil and stop when told to stop. If I had money I would give all cops a million dollars.

Ever met Rosario DeLeon? He's been put in charge of various departments at the City over the past 20 yrs only to have ruined them.

He shouldn't have been appointed to anything except that he was crowned the "right Latino" when Weisner became Public Property Director in the 90's. DeLeon hitched himself to Weisner's coattails and has been riding undeserved favor ever since.

Undeserved? Yep. That's when unqualified, ethically challenged people are promoted into the ranks of City management and are kept there after repeated failure.

With his spectacular experience as a parking meter checker, the only working job he's ever had with the City, DeLeon certainly possesses the skill, knowledge and ability for all of the positions he's been given, right

For us taxpayers, it's unfortunate that this "emperor" never had any clothes in the first place. In fact, Rosario's been stark naked for a long time.

Rosario preaches accountability and integrity, yet they're absent from his own performance.

Want proof?

How about the fiasco with dead ash trees. Six years ago, there were thousands across the City. Rather than deal with them as a wildly important issue worthy of full attention, Aurora's residents were subjected to the "DeLeon factor." That's where the guy becomes evasive and put offish as he's deep in management thought yet ignores the problem. He's still at it with his comments about new developments in DuPage County being over planted with too many parkway trees as justification for his department shorting the public.

Sorry, DeLeon, but we all don't embrace the ghetto mentality of Aurora. We're all not satisfied with minimal standards and performance. If you weren't up to this problem, why were you put in charge of anything in the first place?

Too bad you didn't get lost six years ago. There was never a better issue for privatization. A good consultant and tree removal company, who actually knew what they were doing, could have saved the City lots of embarrassment and removed those dead trees systematically in a hurry. Everyone knows that we sure pay enough in taxes to have been entitled to effective service, if only just once.

But we weren't.

Why, the first time you stepped up and took responsibility was in a Sunday newspaper. Before that it was your juvenile communication and failure to return phone calls to constituents, aldermen and the media. Meanwhile, we residents in DuPage looked at hundreds of dead trees lining our streets year after year devaluing our properties and ruining our quality of life.

Way to answer the call, but we could have predicted your failed accountability. Rosario's dedication to half-assed performance is legendary. We always knew you were the smartest guy in the room and had the answer: let those dead trees rot and fall down on their own.

How about the City's strictly average snow removal operations that are under his command? Or vandalized street lights where replacement takes weeks, not days?

Or ignoring hundreds of resident issues and concerns year after year through the City's computer system? Check with the people at the Customer Service Department on that one. Betcha Rosario's set a record for putting his convenience above the needs of those of us who pay his salary.

Want more proof? How about his brother's rental property when he was head of code enforcement? He said he knew nothing about the violations, which were exposed by a neighbor and policeman speaking out at a City Council meeting, for crying out loud.

We don't mind Rosario pantsing himself on that one, but we do mind that he publicly embarrassed the City Council and all of City government. BTW, as director, he was paid to make sure violations were corrected by people like his brother before they became a public spectacle.

If the DeLeons clan can't handle responsibility, then all of them shouldn't be working for us. How about those weedy medians on N. Lake St? You know, the ones that embarrass the City each spring and make us look like a third world country. Rosario's the darling of social media for that annual boner.

Or how about the idiot hirings he's made. Or the disproportionate number of union grievances that are filed in his department as he screws over his employees. With the hours he spends cloistered away in the Personnel Department whispering over those chintzy-assed issues, it's no wonder Rosario can never get any real work done for us taxpayers. But that's his M.O.

How about Rosario's refusal to correct code violations at his own rental house on Pearl St., when he was the Director of Code Standards, no less? Why, Mayor Weisner didn't even know that his appointee was being prosecuted for that embarrassment, or that's what he told a newspaper reporter.

Way to keep a political mentor informed and violate the public trust at the same time.

That's brilliant efficiency, but how did he manage not to get fired after that freak show? His second scandal in Property Standards in two years? DeLeon still got a pass?

Want the ultimate assessment? Ask the people inside or outside of City Hall, who aren't a Mayoral sycophant, for their opinion. From trade contractor to lowly City employee to aldermen, you'll find that absolutely no one has any use for Rosario. That's the most honest performance appraisal of this guy who's been shown so much unreturned favor.

Rosario's major accomplishment will have nothing to do with his job. It'll be the shameful hiring of friends and relatives like his wife, brother, two sons, two brothers-in-law and other family members on the City's payroll. Let's thank all of the DeLeon's for that circus.

Are we to believe it's a coincidence that half of the DeLeon family couldn't get a job in the private sector yet ended up finding employment with Aurora?

The DeLeon's are the reason why the City desperately needs a nepotism law while Rosario's a living indictment of the City's rancid hiring system dictated by the Mayor's Office and carried out by his useless puppets in the Personnel Department.

His remembrance will feature integrity on a level equal to an underground sanitary sewer line. With an emphasis on rules which he never follows himself, he's a management ass hat all right, the flip side of a ridiculous union BA.

Without Weisner's sponsorship and protection, this jackass would have been fired long ago and, you know what? People all over the City know it. What a marvelous legacy for the Mayor and his BFF.

After 30 years, this clown makes over $150,000 on the taxpayer's dime. He'll be retiring soon so he's not fired by Mayor Chapa LaVia. After that, while still in his 50's, Rosario will begin collecting a six figure pension.

So Aurorans, get ready to fund "Full Family Employment" Rosario DeLeon's livelihood for another 30 years. Enjoy paying that obscene local tax bill for Aurora pensions. In another eight months, it'll be subsidizing a nice piece of useless freight.
