How Did We Miss This Story?

  • The ISRA-PVF is asking Governor Blagojevich to explain why one of his political allies is calling for house-to-house searches to locate and confiscate legally-owned firearms.

    Earlier this month, Cook County Board member Joseph Moreno stood before the county board and called for "...house to house searches to pull every gun out of Cook County." Moreno's statement comes within days of Blagojevich claiming that anyone in Chicago who owns a gun is a "gang banger" and is "...up to no good."

  • "Normally, the Blagojevich and Moreno statements would be laughable," continued Pearson. "However, Blagojevich has the potential means for authorizing police raids on gun-owning homes. House Bill 2414 remains alive in a House committee awaiting a call for a vote. If passed into law, HB2414 would result in the banning and forced confiscation of millions of lawfully-acquired firearms from law-abiding Illinois citizens. The raids would be aided by a database of firearm owners being maintained illegally by the Illinois State Police."
  • original news release at this link here
Actually, we know exactly how we missed it - the liberal media didn't cover it because they fully support outrageous bullshit like this. San Francisco tried to do this exact same thing a few years ago - encouraged everyone to register their guns, claiming the database would never ever be used to confiscate the guns and then used the database for exactly that reason. We believe the courts struck it down, but we aren't sure.

Here's the funny thing about registered guns - they are seldom used to kill people. And if they are, it's usually in legitimate forms of self defense. Seriously. How about this story, also from TheOtherSideofKim.com regarding the proposal to discontinue the Canadian national gun registry:
  • As proof of the registry's worth, CP referred to the killing earlier this month of two Mounties outside Spiritwood, Sask., as well as a handful of other police officer shootings in the past two years. But if anything, these tragic murders prove the opposite. They reinforce the criticism offered by those who argue the registry does nothing to stop crime.

    Not one of the shootings cited was committed with a registered gun. [emphasis added by Kim]

Wow. Who'd have thunk that a criminal wouldn't register a gun? The only reason for a gun registry is to disarm the law abiding populace. Always remember people - it isn't the big bad Republicans threatening to knock down your doors to confiscate legally owned and registered firearms. It's Democrats.

I don't think you're allowed to start off-topic unless you include something offensive. Don't know about healthcare.

Remember when the new pursuit policy came down and some Aldermen pointed out how you don't have to chase cars-just get their license plate? Same bullshit. The problem is not with the registered, licensed, insured vehicles...and it isn't with the lawful, responsible gun owners.

You need to be watching the UN what they want is to not only disarm citizens but police as well. Research what they have on the table.
Side note: Illegals are having their children learn through charter schools the UN version on human rights. Yep the civil rights issue discussed on previous blogs. All this sh%t is long gone old.
On that note I viewed the pointlesspoints.blogspot.com The blog site is nicely put together. I'm going to Iowa for those hearings and following through on my beliefs as an American citizen, who wants to see America stay strong any other Americans out there united that care? GOD BLESS AMERICA!

For a family of 4 that means the City jacked the insurance rate up $1050.00 just on the medical deductables and add how many prescriptions your family gets...

Mar 28, 2005
The off-duty Chicago officer was heading west on 59th Street near Normal Avenue to get to his job at the Englewood District just after midnight when he saw Officer Hugh McCormack gunned down.

Cops all think they are big and bad when they have their guns, but once it's gone-they run like cowards. Martial arts is the answer for you pussies out there! Too bad you all don't have the patience to sustain the many years to becoming like me a 3rd degree black belt!

If you are so impressed with Peterson think back on his first news conference as commander of A/4. It was for a double homicide where the bodies were found on Ogden I believe. Peterson ,in his wisdom, proceeds to give an instructional on how to destroy evidence--"apparently they didn't know to keep the windows open to give the fire enough oxygen." If anyone else but an exempt said something so blatantly stupid, the powers that be would have your ass. He should let news affairs do the talking because he is not up to the task.

This is going to be one big fucking mess. I don't think Mt. Greenwood is going to be happy when she moves in with the baby! And the only reason I was doing it without a rubber was because she said she was on the pill and she also said it feels so much better that way.

Any talented, hard working police officer should aspire to become a homicide dick--"the best and the brightest!"

Not in Chicago. As far as career advancement incentives go, all that knocking on doors in a canvass. locking up murderers and the satisfaction of speaking for the decedent in court are just a meaningless dead end.

Lead by example, my ass!

I work my proud ass off with great results. Maybe I should "work" and "study" harder.

Then again, I could always suck cock for the gold star.

Naaaaaaaaaaah! I don't think so. I'm just not a Kool-Aid cocksucker.

Andrews pretends to be a detective almost as much as he pretends that he is straight. "The ultimate leader is one who is willing to develop people to the point that they eventually surpass him or her in knowledge and ability."

It use to be that the Detective Division relied on its experience from seasoned Detectives, Sergeants, Lieutenants and Commanders to train the up and coming. When you have a Commander that does not have that experience and consistently overrides the decision of his managers the system beaks down. The Detectives have stopped trying to do more because they are tired of being slapped down by Dean. The Lieutenants and Sergeants have been rendered in effective because the men they manage know that their decision doesn’t matter and that the decision will always be up to Dean and no one else. The supervisors lack the intestinal fortitude to stand up to Dean for what they believe in fear of losing their precious spot or being dumped to midnights. Dean dumps supervisors and detectives with no expectation and no regard for their work, experience, or the personal hardship it may cause, for some personnel this was too much to bear. Dean makes his management decisions based on personal reason and how it affects only Dean, regardless what it best for the Division or the police officers they serve.

Andrews is not a leader, he expects people to listen and follow because he wears a gold star and not because he has earned their respect for the position he holds. The difference between a good Commander and Dean is; Dean says, Go! – a true boss says, Let’s go!
Andrews cannot expect to hold the loyalty of his detectives when he speaks to them as if they are insignificant. Andrews its time to look and the mirror and see the person you have became and not the god you think you are!

Both were 10-99 units and both drivers were females.

One female suffered a cell phone related injury as the air bag pushed her cell phone entirely in her ear canal. Since she is on it all day anyhow, she elected to leave it embedded in her ear for easier cell phone usage.

The second female officer in the other car suffered sighlty worse. The lipstick she was applying as she was driving was pushed into her mouth by the airbag and she swallowed the whole tube. After two bottles of mineral oil she had shitted it out. She told her supervisor she didn't see the other squad car because she had a lit cigarette in one hand, lipstick in the other and had her head cocked to her shoulder to hold her cell phone.

Both females are expected to make a full recovery after numerous of weeks on the medical. It appears they both selected the same furlough, an I.O.D. summer off.

I have registered a few guns long after the purchase. Gun registration doesn't say anything about it. One of the possible reasons... You kept the gun secured at your summer home outside the city limits. Just register it and you'll have no problems. Don't believe me? Just call gun registration and ask them, you don't have to tell them who you are.

A Chicago Police officer who stabbed his wife 20 times during an argument was found guilty but mentally ill at the end of his murder trial Friday.

That means Rafael Balbontin, 34, will be eligible for mental health treatment in prison when he is sentenced Aug. 15, said Cook County assistant state's attorney Laura Bertucci-Smith, who prosecuted the case with Jennifer Coleman.

"This is a tragic occurrence and I'm glad the judge ensured my client will get the mental health treatment he desperately needs," said Balbontin's attorney, Jeffrey B. Granich.

Balbontin, reportedly despondent, stabbed his 29-year-old wife, Arcelia Balbontin, in January 2005 at their Belmont Cragin home, where they lived with their two young children. When his fellow police officers arrived to arrest him, Balbontin met them on the steps of his home, put his hands behind his back and simply said, "Arrest me."

After the incident, the three-year police officer -- who worked in the Austin District as a patrol officer -- was relieved of his duties.

During the two-day bench trial before Judge John Moran, Granich argued his client was psychotic and suffered from major depression.

Balbontin faces 20 to 60 years in prison, Bertucci-Smith said.

Person falls on Red Line tracks downtown

July 22, 2006

FROM STNG WIRE REPORTS



A man who was reportedly drunk was killed when he fell onto a the tracks at a downtown CTA Red Line subway station Saturday morning, police said.


About 1:40 a.m., the CTA was notified "that a customer was on the right-of-way at Harrison," said CTA spokeswoman Kim Myles.


The man, a 68 year old retired Chicago Police Offcier, according to police, apparently was intoxicated and fell onto the third rail at the Harrison station, according to a report from the police First Deputy Superintendent's office.


Myles said no train was involved in the incident.



The unnamed man, who according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office, was pronounced dead at 4:15 a.m. at the Stein Institute, the medical examiner's office said.


Red Line trains were re-routed over the elevated tracks downtown after the incident, Myles said. By 3:11 a.m. both northbound and southbound Red Line trains had resumed use of the subway tracks.

Though I am a Conservative, I do beleive in gun control. Guns in the hands of civilians and off duty police officers cause too much death, tragedy, and injuries. Most so called law abidibng citizens who do buy guns lock them away and never use them anyway, even for sports.

I cannot see the logic of having anyone owning a device whose sole universal concept is killing people. People with guns kill, maim, and injure. Gun control will make our streets safer, our lives safer, and especially, our children safer.

I really hope you are kidding. Chicago has had gun control for years and guess what? It does not work. Gun control only takes guns out of law abiding citizens hands. Criminals do not register nor respect gun laws. In communities where conceal permits are allowed crime almost always goes down because the only thing criminals fear is that their target has a gun to defend themselves. Gun control leaves the weak even more unprotected and makes it easier on the criminals. Don't take my word for it, look it up yourself.

They have the rap down about how evil Bush and the republicans are while all the while slowly taking away our rights. And I have No idea why Minority groups vote Democratic. The Democrats keep them down and do not want them to get ahead. They treat them like I treat my dog. Just give them enough food, water and shelter to keep them happy but never really free. The Democratic party does not want Its base to get ahead in life by getting a good job or a quality education because If they did they would realize how poorly they have been treated over the years. I vote republican because they want me to work, get an education, do not think I am too stupid to take care of my family and for the most part stay out of my business. When given a choice between Democratic or Republican always vote republican.

All this crying about bad bosses in the "D" unit. Boo Hoo. If you haven't figured it out yet the supervisor's job is just that, to SUPERVISE. They do not clear cases, they do not arrest criminals, they do not do interviews. They make sure that the nonsense that is required from downtown gets done, even if they think it is ridiculous too. It does'nt make a bit of difference if they were detectives or not. Just because you were a detective does'nt mean you were a good one and it certainly does'nt mean you will be a good supervisor.
By the time you make detective you should'nt need much supervision anyway. You should be able to handle your jobs by yourself. You need to look in the mirror if some boss is f***ing with you. If you do your job, respond to the districts,give P.O.s a fair shake, clear your cases, arrest a bad guy every now and then and shorten up your two hour lunches the bad bosses might just leave you alone.

Any time that a non-detective is assigned to supervise detectives, the City slaps working detectives in the face and kicks them in the teeth. In effect, you are implying that the CPD can't find the best ranking officers from sgt. through chief from among the ranks of experienced outstanding detectives.

Either you're ignorant, have a personal agenda or are well aware that you're full of shit.

It's all clout, regardless of experience (or lack thereof). Stop your bullshit excuses and admit it.

Dude get a grip. How is it a slap in the face to all working detectives? Most working detectives( which are few and far between these days) don't take promotional exams. They are content to be detectives and are happy with that. Due to the hours they put in and court they handle most of the working detectives don't have much time to study. Not their fault, just the way it is. I bet less tha twenty percent of the detective division even takes a sergeant's test. The ones that score well are usually the ones that are not very good detectives and have time to study.

Didn't mean to start world war three about my "Task Force Ranger" comments. However, you apparently forgot about the King riots, when the shit got bad the only guys out there doing it were from Maxwell Street. Oh I forgot, you were probably working the desk complaining to your 3rd watch drunkin Irish Lietenant Fleming about the Area Four "Pussies" causing trouble again. So go
f@%k yourself deskman, as the saying went back in the day, "You aint the man your mama was"...

Lighten up, TF-4. When it came to esprit de corps and backing each other up, I've never worked with a greater group of guys than my own Fillmore colleagues in the late '60's including the riots.

Don't exaggerate. Overall, Area 4 Task Force was helpful. However, you can't top the guys that worked 011, riots or otherwise. Greatest responses to 10-1s that I've ever seen in any era, city-wide.

Also, there was a problem when some TF-4 guys would stir up shit with sandbagging bullshit pinches of some of our most upstanding citizens who should have been given a pass.

The most aggravating abuse occurred when TF-4 would
house our otherwise law-abiding merchants for UUW while they were carrying cash business receipts. Many of those same merchants actually assisted in backing up coppers from 011 in hairy situations.

Again, thanks for the occasional help but spare us the macho shit.

Molon labe!!!!(mo-lone lah-veh) Two little words. With these two words, two concepts were verbalized that have lived for nearly two and a half Millennia. They signify and characterize both the heart of the Warrior, and the indomitable spirit of mankind. From the ancient Greek, they are the reply of the Spartan General-King Leonidas to Xerxes, the Persian Emperor who came with 600,000 of the fiercest fighting troops in the world to conquer and invade little Greece, then the center and birthplace of civilization as we know it. When Xerxes offered to spare the lives of Leonidas, his 300 personal bodyguards and a handful of Thebans and others who volunteered to defend their country, if they would lay down their arms, Leonidas shouted these two words back.They mean, “Come and get them!” They live on today as the most notable quote in military history.
