Officers OK, Offender Wounded

Behind the curve on this one as we were quite busy all day. Channel 7 and the Sun Times provide the coverage. Story is sort of amusing actually:
  • Spokesperson Pat Camden told ABC7 News that when the officers got out of the car they took cover, they announced who they were and told the suspect to drop the gun.

    "The individual turns, keeping shooting down the block. He turned with the gun. At the officers at this point. They fire and in defense of their lives. The subject is hit I believe twice in the leg," Camden said.

Seems to us that the subject may have been deafened by the sound of his own gunshots and didn't hear the police announce their presence behind him (from cover - very wise move) and he kept shooting down the block even after the cops said they were behind him. Too bad for the knucklehead. Good job guys.

Thanks.

Man Killed On Red Line Tracks
Victim Apparently Intoxicated
(CBS) CHICAGO An unidentified retired Chciago Police Officer was killed early Saturday when he fell onto the tracks at a downtown subway station and contacted the third rail.

At 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, believed to be about 68 years old, according to police, apparently was intoxicated and fell onto the third rail at the Harrison station. The victim was pronounced dead at 4:15 a.m. at the Stein Institute, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

Myles said no train was involved in the incident and that Chicago police were investigating early Saturday to determine exactly what happened.

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.

Sorry Guys, but I would rather have an experienced media man and
former copper like Pat Camden handling the media for a cop shooting than most supervisors out there. If you are not trained and prepared for some of the crap these media creatures will throw at you, you could easily embarrass yourself, and the rest of us. Camden does a great job, and I've even seen him get together with reporters and tell them what nonsense NOT to pull when the cameras go on. Trust me, you'd rather he was there to answer questions or give statements on some of our more questionable shootings/major incidents than anyone else.

I was there when IAD took the contents of the lockers. It was only just over $80,000.00, in bundles of $1000.00 with rubber bands around it. Those married guys paid big money to avoid being busted with a male whore. a few thousand isn't anything to avoid a 6 figure divorce.

while surfing found this interesting POST on a BLACK BLOG SITE:


Why is it that so many Blacks attempt to justify the mayhem that is running rampant in our neighborhoods by stating that others racial groups are doing the same??? I'll make this easy,
In Chicago alone, show me where White People are subjected to same "White on White" criminalities that exsist in Black Communities. Explain to me why Whites aren't shooting, maiming each other on a daily basic in Chicago?
Show me what area of "WHITE" Chicago, where the residences are so intimidated by their "own" that they can't venture to and fro on their on accord.

Why, when there is a legitimate question of racial injustice, it will always trump all the idiotic actions of Blacks misusing or abusing other Blacks.

As far as the Asians, Mexicans and any other cans, I could give less then a shyt! Some of us like hitching their waywards ideologies, defending those who gives less then a damn about you or the entire Black race of people. Example real simple: When was the last time you seen a Asian buying anything from a black own store???? It's like going to LEON's BBQ, and finding a line of Chineses waiting to buy rib tips, well you ain't going to see that!!!!!

Yes, J. Burge was and is a piece of fece!
Every person that he dealt with was not INNOCENT! This does not justified his or his men actions and behavior. But does it strike you funny, that no one has ever mention the VICTIMS or the families, that these bastards destroyed. No, of course not, its all about some low life and his/her rights and ONLY because what happen to them, was done by someone "WHITE"

This ain't about justice, this is about some bogus ass racial oneupmanship, a thousand Blacks could die at the hands of other Blacks, but you let one "White" person do it, its time to march for 30 days, chant loudly as the media camera rolls, have all the righteous reverends and street corner activists smirk and shake their fists in a resounding chorus of "The White Man Did It"

Austin and another guy got dumped for their behavior and their lack of common sense and judgement. They were and are a danger to themselves and others. Traffic is like any other specialized unit. You have to know some body or be invited to go their. They got back because their clout interfered on their behalf. The greivance procedure was just a smoke screen. The fix was in. They knew they were coming back. When was the last time you heard of FOP- who believe you need clout to get in a unit- ever help someone who got dumped. Never!!! They do not get involved.

They were returned the same way they got theire originally. The telephone call. Don't be surprised if they are also the first to be promoted meritoriously of the next sergeant's list.

GUN CONTROL - JUST THE FACTS


GUN CONTROL:

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
---------------------------
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
----------------------------
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000
Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated' people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
---------------------------
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
------------------------------
It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in:
* Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent
* Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent
* Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
* In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. (Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.
There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won't see this data on the American evening news or hear our president, governors or other politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans.....before it's too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

With guns, we are 'citizens'.

Without them, we are 'victims'.

ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ!
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.

GUN CONTROL - JUST THE FACTS"

Most people, even pro gun advocates have never studied history, especially the history of the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights was an after thought to the US Constitution. The Founding Fathers decided that the people needed protection from the government it self. The Second Amendment was placed there to not only protect the people from the government, but to protect the constitution itself.

Historically, gun control was not implemented to protect the citizens. It was to protect the government from the people. Modern gun control, post 1968, came about not as the result of violent crime, but as a result of assasinations- JFK and MLK.

Those who advocate gun control practice theart of the BIG Lie.

A lesson in how things work.

During the sixties and early seventies the Knapp Commission was investigating the NYPD for massive corruption. Everything from taking a free meal to protecting organized crime and dope dealers.

During the investigation they went into a division. The whole division was ordered to be there- patrolman, detectives, bosses, etc. The Knapp Commission asked if any police officer was corrupt and for them to come forward and testify at a later date. They would be given immunity and be protected.

If any officer refused or was discovered later, they would be prosecuted. The commissioner then asked again for anyone to come forward. The WHOLE division stood up!! The Whole division admitted to being corrupt. The Knapp Commission walked out. It would be impossible to arrest and indict a whole divison of the NYPD.

Lesson learned, if we all stood up for each other, we would be powerful and win. No one could touch us. They would not even think of firing mass numbers of us.
