Victims Victims Everywhere

Once again, Channel 5 encourages the cult of victimhood infecting the Englewood community, aided and abetted by the mayor. From their website (bold is the article; italics are our comments):
  • Mayor Richard M. Daley said on Wednesday the Chicago Police Department would use rookie police officers to canvass the Englewood neighborhood beginning next week. (So the PPOs who graduated Wednesday can look forward to a tour in the lovely 007th District. On the other side of the coin, anyone who doesn't go Englewood is obviously politically connected. Make notes.)
  • "This is the mayor's idea, (obviously, as it seems to have little to do with police work) and I think what sparked it is the homicides of the two young girls," said Chicago Police Superintendent Phil Cline." (This is where we'll take issue with the Supe - this seems transparently sparked by the burgeoning Federal investigation that is coming into full bloom lately.) And seeing what more we could do in Englewood to help it. Because we know that the police alone can't solve all of the social issues." They also said they hope to determine residents' needs for such things as: housing, daycare, after-school programs, abandoned cars and buildings (Sorry, but isn't this the job of social services? What the hell do we pay taxes for? And how come we manage to do all this on our own?)
  • "That's the first big step," said Quinile Hannon, one of Reed's brothers. "It shows actually that police department is actually doing something instead of harassing people. They're showing that they care by going house-to-house." (Ummm, Quinile? Fuck you. Really. Fuck you you absolute piece of shit. Harassment? Up yours jagoff.)
So it seems we are entering the age of the cop as a social worker. Oh boy oh boy!

The police CANNOT make change alone. It's up to the people.

Either sh*t or get off the pot Englewood residents. You b*tch and moan yet cannot pick up the phone to make an anonymous complaint, drop an anonymous letter in the mail, stick together and do other things to create change and drive the riff raff out.

But then again, it's just best to complain, isn't it?

The social worker thing and jack-of-all-trades thing started with O.W. Wilson. 9-1-1, the answer to all of life's little problems.

Being a PO might have been a good job once, when you could actually walk a beat and know and take responsibility for a neighborhood. Who do the beat officers know now? Squeaky wheels.

Ideas/suggestions: 1) using PPO's to canvass Englewood; a) a waste of new officers; 2)a political concession to the failure of democratic/liberal governmental policies; 3) a tacit admission that the Daley administration has a) no comprehensive understanding of the causes of crime, and no political and personal will to define and challenge the problem; 3) a testament to the lack of courage and character of the current exepmt staff, whose members owe their soul (and salaries and pensions) to Daley (it must be difficult, I would suppose, to live under the master). It seems that the honorable thing to do (in character) would be to leave the star on the mayor's desk, and bid him a "fond adieu" (in so many words). Character: it defines what a person says, and does, how a person behaves...when no one is watching.

Englewood has had this issue what close to 30 years now, and it is always the same ole song and dance. Cop's that wanted to learn went to the so called fast district, where they learned to be the police and they did not need their supervior's to tell them what to do, nor how to do it. Understand this you did not call your superviors; but there were great boss's then. Unfortunatly your knowlegable officer's have left and what's left of them are now also flying out the door. Ya need a fork lift for your gen/spc orders. Good luck, your mayor can lead ya.

How long until the ACLU starts suing us for human rights violations for checking who is living where. I thought that was what the census was for. We have become Big Brother.

Here is an idea. Set boundries and anyone who lives in those boundries gets implanted with a microchip. Since we are getting ready to violate civil rights, we might has well earn the lawsuit.

I got 9 years to do and I am out of here. You short timers are lucky you can leave this madness soon.

Why are police officers checking on the infrastructure in Englewood and the living conditions. What happened to their elected officials, i.e. alderman, state rep and state senator. I thought that they were elected to watch over this stuff. Every time the aldermen give themselves a raise, they always complain that they are receiving calls from constituents at all hours of the night. Is that B.S.?

I remember back in the day, Gang Crimes, sending about 300-400 Gang Crimes Coppers from North-South and West to saturate Englewood because , yes you guessed it, shootings/killings. Same thing then as it is now. Only on one particular day back then a unmarked
gang crimes car is pulls up to an intersection where 2 groups of the element is holding it down. The coppers stop when one of the badguys pulls out a tech-9, spreads out on the trunk of the stopped squad car and takes aim and fires at the group (yea, you know) across the street. Just another day in the WOOD. Oh uea, the WC in 007 wouldn't let us use their lockup either, so we had to procees our shitheads in the car and take them to Central D.

What about doing htis for the N. Side?? I want free housing, daycare, and after-school programs, too!! Why does the Black man get everything for free? I'm the little worker bee and I get nothing for free...

My last arrestee was a m/1/24 frm Englewood. He claimed ot have a job, but his Link card was poking out of his wallet. I asked him why he had the Link card. His reply: Everyone has a Link card! ...I don't have a Link card, do you?

At least they can say thanks!

If you have that much hate and contempt for Black People, Shitheads, Mules are what ever the code word of the day is, stop mumbling about it, be the first in your district or unit to stand up for your convictions, walk up to the next person that fit this description and put a bullet in him/her
Hate fears no consequences, and then maybe one day they will name a street after you in 016th dst

Remember when CAPs first came in to play, early 90's, the city took alot of PPOs from the districts and sent them to supplement the districts that were the first to start the caps program. 007 actually got about 100 of these new officers. When CAPs went citywide, 007 kept all those officers. Thereby shortchanging other districts. I haven't checked lately but 007 has more officers than districts that are literally 3 times the size of 007.

Having worked in 007 in the 80s, I can honestly say that Englewood is its own world, and not a good one. It is unbelievable that 007 is now half vacant, just ride through there, and it is still one of the most violent areas in the city, and the powers that be still just throw more $ at them. There has got to be a better way, but what is it? This is a real question.

Englewood is currently trying to recreat it's history, now they want the quaint history from the 1800's. It's part of a marketing game and it's already been initiated, there's no mention about the era were all familiar with. That's a fact you can take to the bank.

Yeah, that going door to door will solve a lot of problems, unlike us "harassing" all of those poor gang bangers with guns. lets send the message once again that the "man" is responsible for all of the black mans problems. Somehow the police made those poor young black men shoot those girls with the guns that George Bush gave them to help sell his cocaine.

We really like your idea of going door-to-door to preach the gospel.

We will be forwarding 50,000 copies of our Watchtower Bible tracts via personal messenger for you to distribute in your canvass.
They will be delivered to Chief Mary Rozell at 6100 S. Racine Avenue by midnight.

TIP: Always be polite. Put your foot inside after they open the door. Never take NO for an answer. If they tell you they are going to call the police, merely smile and say that you ARE the police.

For more tracts, stop by our office, 48 W. 59th St.

Thank you. God bless you.

I saw the picture of the PPOs in the Trib this morning. in a word "abhorrent" the broads had to be about 4 feet tall and the duchess had her hat so high on her weave it looked like a Mr Potato head hat. Can't hardly wait to call her for an assist with the next 300 pound gorilla on wicky stick not working and playing well with others.

On a separate but equally loathsome subject I saw the shithead couple giving thier insightful and erudite account of the shooting in 006. I paid more heed to the pitchfork on the right side of the baseball cap. God these reporters are idiots.

Quaint history from the 1800's? Serious book recommendation here: Devil in the White City. America's original serial killer lived in Englewood and murdered more than a dozen. In. The. 1800's.

Quaint history was the 40's through the early 60's when the parents of half the people in the South suburbs, Mt. Greenwood and Beverly lived in Englewood or thereabouts. By the end of the 60's, it was finito pretty much. One retiree I know shot something like 7 people thereabouts in 7 seperated incidents.

And the grand Parish churches are no more.

Ah, yes. "The Monster of 63rd Street" (Beat 723)--Dr. Henry H. Holmes, aka Herman W. Mudgett.

I remember the case well. Holmes owned "the Dungeon of Horrors", the castle that stood at 601 W. 63rd St., complete with a medieval torture rack, a dungeon, a crematorium and that huge acid vat.

This notorious serial murderer went to Hell at the end of the hangman's rope in a Philadelphia prison on May 7, 1896.

I was just a rookie homicide dick back then. We used horse-drawn carriages for patrol. The neighborhood has changed quite a bit over the years.

Okay I have to address the idea of a cop being a social worker.

Whether we like it or not when we took that oath and put on that uniform we became social workers of the first order. Some of us seem to forget this role.

I know of no cop that wouldn’t help a person in need. We have all found emergency housing, food and safety for vulnerable people. We’ve all helped some kid get a job, get back into school or to stay away from a dangerous lifestyle.

We care or we would have done something else. Some of the finest police work was done without making an arrest!

Left wing politicians and bureaucrats always seem to want to conduct ridicules social experiments. That’s crap because we know what works and what does not.

We are the ones that go to the disturbance calls and mediate, solve problems and save lives in the process. Chicago cops were always up to the task.

I learned a lot from some old timers who are gone now. Some problems we can’t solve and that’s why we have prisons. At least we try!
