Quick Hits

Stories of interest:
  • The Hat strikes again - ... some officers are allegedly complaining that [Dorothy Tillman] is demanding police protection that would be better used in fighting crime in her ward. [...] She also says that, contrary to what unidentified police officers told the Chicago Sun-Times, she did not request the police protection outside her office. “That was a decision that was made by the commander or the superintendent, but it was not my decision. I think it was a good decision,” Tillman said. [SCC says "hahahahaha - sure thing Dorothy"]
  • Two male Calumet District officers were recovering at a hospital after a crowd gathered and threw rocks and bottles at them in the Altgeld Gardens neighborhood on the South Side. [when is the City going to plow this project under?]
  • Do you think our flag logo is in danger? Probably not, as it is the 1955 star design that the City never bothered to copyright and appears on every fundraising t-shirt in existence. [plus, it's obviously parody.]
  • And the official CPD explanation of the "raical profiling study" can be found in part here at the Channel 7 report.

Why Jihad Watch?
Because the West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad.

Jihad (in Arabic, "struggle") is a central duty of every Muslim. Modern Muslim theologians have spoken of many things as jihads: the struggle within the soul, defending the faith from critics, supporting its growth and defense financially, even migrating to non-Muslim lands for the purpose of spreading Islam. But violent jihad is a constant of Islamic history. Many passages of the Qur'an and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad are used by jihad warriors today to justify their actions and gain new recruits. No major Muslim group has ever repudiated the doctrines of armed jihad. The theology of jihad, which denies unbelievers equality of human rights and dignity, is available today for anyone with the will and means to bring it to life.

Jihad Watch is dedicated to bringing public attention to the role that jihad theology and ideology plays in the modern world, and to correcting popular misconceptions about the role of jihad and religion in modern-day conflicts. We hope to alert people of good will to the true nature of the present global conflict.

THREE CHEERS FOR AUSTRALIA
I wish the leaders of our country would take a stand like
Australia.....
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Shari law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.
A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged loyalty to Australia at a special meeting with Prime Minister John Howard, he and his ministers made it clear that extremists would face a crackdown.
Treasurer Peter Costello, seen as heir apparent to Howard, hinted that some radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if they did not accept that Australia was a secular state and its laws were made by parliament.

"If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Shari law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you," he said on national television.
"I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two laws governing people in Australia, one the Australian law and another the Islamic law, that is false. If you can't agree with parliamentary law, independent courts, democracy, and would prefer Shari law and have the opportunity to go to another country, which practices it, perhaps, then, that's a better option, "Costello said.
Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to leave, he said those with dual citizenship could possibly be asked to move to the other country.

Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims who did not want to accept local values should "clear off".
"Basically, people who don't want to be Australians, and they don't want to live by Australian values and understand them, well then they can basically clear off," he said. Separately, Howard angered some Australian
Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques.
AMERICA and EUROPE..... ARE YOU LISTENING?
Quote:
IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It ! I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some
individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have
experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.
However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the "politically correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Australia.
However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand.
This idea of Australia being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle.
This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, then learn the language!
Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push but a fact because Christian men and women, on
Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home,
Because God is part of our culture.
We will accept your beliefs and will not question why, all we ask is that you accept ours and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.
If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like "A Fair Go", then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.
We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. By all means keep your culture but do not force it on others.
This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this, but once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or
Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, "THE RIGHT TO LEAVE."
If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.
Pretty easy really, when you think about it. I figure if we all keep passing this to our friends (and enemies) it will also, sooner or
later get back to the complainers, lets all try, please.

THANKS ALOT, SUPT

When, many of us in District 008 have called you and I have emailed you through the CPD website trying to get of the gangs over in Clearing. NO RESPONSE.

How nice of you to kiss Tillmans ass and immediately give her protection.

Yet when your officers over here almost got hurt by the drugged up gangbanger who was thrown off a balconey about 10 feet high was fighting with cops until the backup could arrive, they had no help. All I could do was watch helplessly.

But when one of your officers does get hurt or killed due to lack of backup, I sure hope as hell they/their family sue this stupid city.

But hey!! CAPS works!!!!

To 12:45AM...I couldn't have said it better myself!!! You have said everything I have been saying for some time. I'm jealous of the Australians non-politically correct policies. Their country seems to be getting stronger by facing reality and not being politically correct like us. They are not afraid to "offend someone" if it means protecting themselves. You are right, just after the dust settled in 9-11 many have forgotten. Old ladies are being searched at airports and have their shoes removed just to be "equal" and not target a certain ethnic group. Well, it was a certain ethnic group that attacked us not old ladies! Some seem to poke fun at Americans that they call "Flag wavers" as though there's something wrong with waving the flag. On the 4th of July I saw many immigrants in my neighborhood waving their Polish flag, Bulgarian flag, or what ever flag from their country, but not the American Flag! Some immigrants can't stand America, and only stay here to prosper from the freedoms and fruits of the land. Australia has the right idea and they will be a much stronger country by getting rid of the dangers and then ungrateful!

contained within the link to the racial profiling story by channel 7 was this gem:

Non-minority drivers stopped were let go with a verbal warning at an 11.8 percent clip and minorities received only a verbal warning 19.2 percent of the time.

Do the math--minority drivers have a 39% greater likelihood of receiving ONLY a verbal warning--AND THEY ARE STILL BITCHING!!!!!!!!!! God forbid non-minorities get ANYTHING 39% more than minorities, TV news programs and publications would trumpet that on page one.

I also take note of the phraseology of that sentence. It almost is written in a way that sends the tone of the non-minority is being given the shaft here.

In the 008th District, the Officers are assigned to the "CROE TV" - Muhammad & Friends television show on 71st & Artesian. We must sit in the parking lot from 6pm to 9pm and guard thier cars. That's right, a profit orgization gets free police protection. And this happens when the 008th District has a back log every day, Officers are assigned 4/5 jobs at a time, and people are getting shot.

OFFICER SAFETY ISSUE...

This information just in..

10th District, 16th and Karlov, last night.

Two high ranking New Breeds gang bangers shot, 1 killed and with an AK47. That kind of firepower is out there in the hands of the bad guys no matter what kind of gun laws are passed. So use caution.

HERE'S THE KICKER...The New Breeds, were riding in a high class SUV, with a license plate 34##LE, that is Law Enforcement Memorial plate number. The bad guys are using Law Enforcement and Fire Fighter plates as camouflage. Anyone can buy and use these plates with the appropriate contribution.

If you, or someone you know has this type of license plate, expect a stop. If you are getting stopped, act cool, friendly and professional. If doing the stopping, same thing only put a lot of caution behind that smile.

Stay Safe Out There

The Chicago P.D. is the only major (2,000+ sworn) big city police dept. that refuses to adopt the Glock, preferably in .40 S&W (or optional .45 or .357).

Is this because that moron Leroy Martin accidentally discharged a Glock in his office? Is it because of Glock's refusal to pay kickback$ to corrupt official$?

Will it require a CPD catastrophic failure to match the firepower of the bad guys (the North Hollywood bank robbery and the LAPD)?

Aside from more frequent practice at the range using only iron sights, heavy bore Glocks with lasers are long overdue.

The Glock 40 has been the authorized handgun for the FBI for almost 10 years.

You can't underestimate the deterrent power of that red dot of a laser dancing on the critical mass of armed offenders.

Mike Ryan is the 3rd watch Captain in 019 and has been a TOTAL stroke since day one, I heard he was a jagoff as a LT and almost got guys hurt in 014 as a Sgt when he started a mini riot at North/Damen/Milwaukee years ago. (Well not that many years ago as his clout is getting him his merit promotions at a record pace!)

The reason that we don't have the Glock is that this is a virtually untrainable department.

Glocks are great, I carried one at my previous Dept.. Why wait for the Dept. to approve Glocks? Great firepower is available now. get yourself self a .45 and be done with it. better than a .40. Throw on a laser, just use it when supervisors arent on-scene. half the shit I carry is unauthorized. My life is more important than these stupid rules.

Know he made Sgt before meritorious made it same time. Wondered then how he did good on the test cause he didn't seem too bright back then. But his old man definitely big in the old Irish connection and yes he has done well for himself. Always heard he was a stroke tact guy back in 019 but never worked with him or for him. Just another Capt with some clout and I'm sure there are PO's out there will tell you what a great guy he is until the day comes where he gets that call from 35th street to fuck that PO then he will be just the clout yes man he really is.
