Mary Mitchell Does it Again

Once again, reading her column so YOU don't have to.

Does this woman even read the tripe that she types? Do her editors? Can someone tell us where the hell she came from, because no one this ignorant of Chicago politics could possibly be local. Get a load of her Wednesday column (just a couple quotes - we don't want readers to hurt themselves):
  • I used to wonder how Stroger got so far in the world of politics. (do a little research Mary, it's an interesting story)
  • He's old school because he learned from the best of the old-school politicians: Congressmen William L. Dawson, Ralph Metcalfe and Mayor Harold Washington. (and do you have any idea what those names have in common?)
Stroger came up north with nothing, and he joined the Machine. And the Machine is loyal to it's people, more so it's old timers than anyone else. Stroger is such an insider, he actually DIDN'T support Harold Washington. He didn't support current media darling Obama either. He has backed the Daley administration for years over his own community and yet, Mitchell holds him up as some paragon of black political might.

Saying he learned from William Dawson? Good Lord is this woman ignorant. Dawson rose to power running the "policy wheel" for the Mafia in the Chicago ghetto. For Mary's benefit and anyone else who doesn't know, the "policy wheel" was a numbers racket that the poor communities (mostly black at the time) would bet money on. Illegal, but a HUGE source of revenue for the Mafia and in turn, the Machine. Dawson ran three wards and actually hamstrung and brought down Mayor Kennelly (who had ordered police raids on black "policy wheel" operators), thereby setting the stage for old man Daley to take the reins of the Machine 4 years later. Dawson blatantly and openly bought votes with money, alcohol and live poultry. Alderman Benjamin Lewis, who opposed Daley, Dawson and the "policy wheel" operators was found handcuffed and shot in the head in 1963 - draw your own conclusions.

Stroger's public service is a textbook example of how to get ahead in an existing political structure - suck up to the people who have power and maybe you can name a building after yourself. He would do well to avoid such comparisons as Mitchell makes in her column. Here's a hint Mary - read "BOSS" by Mike Royko. Everyone who attempts to write about Chicago politics ought to memorize it. And then maybe you wouldn't come off as so ignorant of history.

Kansas just became the 39th state to allow citizens to have concealed carry of firearms. The legislature of the state overrode the veto of the DEMOCRATIC governor of Kansas.

The first amendment is protected by the second amendment. Never give up your rights. Don't drink the MSM/liberal kool-aid.

If Stroger wasn't completely FUBAR right now, don't you think we may have heard at least an audio press release, if not a small, televised news conference after his win and all the controversey? His son ( of course, an alderman!!! ) seemed extremely evasive to me when I saw his interview after Claypool conceeded.

I suppose any reporter who tried to follow that story would be crucified...it's a shame. Political correctness to the insane extreme!

Yeah I agree, he's probably on life support, and his kid doesn't wanna tell anyone so they can set up some kinda politicle agenda.
The guy is in his 70's, and had a stroke. He is probably sedated to keep his blood pressure under control to keep another stroke from reacurring, which in usually common in elder stroke patients.
There are also so many medical factor's to the "Stroke condition"
that he is more than likely going under severe arterial examinations,and probes.
His son "who appeared to be evasive" probably was more worried about his FATHER, than having to deal with the media, and it's hoopla. I'm pretty sure his so is more sick to death about losing his dad, than the election.
the media doesn't worry about crucifiction, hell look at Mary Mitchell!
Stop being so presumptuous, and post a fact.

I voted for Stroger every time before, but not this time. This time I couldn't take the bullshit anymore. Besides, he had a huge stroke and he's 76 years old. Time to retire Mr. President.

Mary Mitchell is an apologist for anything bad about black people. I think the Sun-Times keeps her there just to stir up the pot, nothing more.

Mary is no better than a KKK member. I'll give her credit for talking trash and signing her name to it though, it's more than the white sheet hooded thugs would do.

If you think Stroger is a thief and a political hack - wait till you get a load of Tony Peraica, the republic nominee for Board President - a croation attorney who partners have mostly been indicted and are in jail. All have been disbarred, yet he manages to avoid implication. Uses several buildings he owns on the southside to hide croation illegals, money and possibly more. Because few people on this department speak croat and its pretty much a closed community with its own mafia, this guy and his henchmen have been pretty much untouchable. Stroger is just a piker by comparison.

You obviously have a bone to pick with me because of my post in regards to baby coppers using dead coppers names in vain. So apparently that means that everyone else here is able to express their own opinions, and even wild speculations, except me? Too bad.

And I'm PROUD to still be a patrolman for almost 20 years! I'm damn proud to put on my uniform and do my job without bitching, whining and complaining that the world doesn't revolve around me.

I'm still a patrolman for two reasons that I can see: #1 the only promotion tests that I have ever taken are for Detective, and I've never scored high ecough to make it. I can graduate from DePaul with a 3.85 GPA, but I can't seem to score in the top 1000 no matter how many times I test for dic. Go figure. #2 I've never asked, or been asked to be merit promoted. In fact, I am very happy with just working the street. Every night I get a full tank of gas to drive around and experience life. I have few regrets, and none of them are related to this job.

Mary Mitchell knows the history of the people she is writing about. What she is doing is attempting to re-write history. By doing what she does some people who read her column will actually believe her. She wants to erase the past and make criminals heroes because the black community has no real heroes, just a history of whining and race baiting.

Typical shitheadedness (I know it’s not a word grammar police). The people of Houston, Texas want all the Katrina evacuees to leave because of the spike in crime. Try and help someone out and they take a dump on you. It’s the shithead way of living. Here is part of the article:

Houston grows weary of Katrina evacuees: poll

HOUSTON (Reuters) - People in Houston welcomed tens of thousands of New Orleans evacuees in the days after Hurricane Katrina but now sound as if they would like to see the newcomers go home, according to a poll published on Friday.
Sentiment has turned against the evacuees partly because of an increase in violent crime that accompanied their arrival, local officials said.
Police said a spate of murders at the end of 2005 was the result of New Orleans gang wars that moved to Houston with the evacuees.

thursday's garbage was stinkier than wednesday's.

here was my favorite quote from aunt jemimah mitchell:

"And while it may be politically correct to argue that race doesn't matter, African Americans can't afford to buy into that idealistic rhetoric."

So, by that insane logic, it's only white people that are supposed to be racially indifferent, everybody else gets to push for thier own.

What a RETARD!!!

OFF TOPIC ..........Now that Trotter has been appointed to cure all cancers in city government like huberman has been tell me when the following will be fixed.

1. delays in calls being given to cars on the street allowing us to actually get to something in progress or remotely close maybe.

2.Teaching these no mind fucking idiots to get proper info when taking a call.

3. having the call takers use the tools they have at their fingertips such as details to follow.......(using it the proper way)

4. having the radio operators actually care about the job they do and not just work like robots to get calls off their board.


It has been become common place for the dispatchers to assign one person cars to cars that should be 10-4 and then the 99 officers will say "I will let you know if I need the help"

These actions are endangering the safety of every officer who acts this way and it is paramount that we cease this practice.

Why are we trying to help the dispatcher when it has become very obvious they do not have our safety at the top of the prioity list.

There are exceptions to this. Those are the dispatchers who we know and respect and will work very hard for them. They also will not assign 10-99 cars to 10-4 jobs. Those kinds of radio operators are few and far between but they are down on madison st.

Daley,Trotter,Huberman and the rest of those chronies have the media and the citizens fooled with a 911 system that really DOES NOT work. and god forbid there was ever a katrina or 9/11 everyone would really know the truth.

Have you ever called 911 and wanted to give more info but was cut off by the call taker by the words "ok we will get someone out there" I am sure you have and they should have taken more onfo or even kept you on the phone longer to get and pass on info.

The 911 system is saddled with lazy underworked and overpaid people who need to start doing the right thing they make a good buck for.

To the good ones down there at oemc keep doing the fine and hard work you do because trust me it doesnt go unnoticed. You are few and far between but when you work the zone the working police out on the street can tell you have your shit together and appreciate the hard work you do.



be safe and take care
