Violent Weekend

We heard that the City murder rate was trailing last years numbers by around a dozen or so. Considering what went up this weekend, we're might be on a bit of an upswing? Some turf wars have turned decidedly violent, both south and west:
  • Six people were shot, three fatally, in the Washington Heights and Roseland neighborhoods from Thursday night to Friday morning. [...] All of the shootings happened in the Morgan Park District on the Southwest Side. All were suspected of being gang-related, department spokeswoman Monique Bond said.
  • Multiple shootings in 010 and 011 involving a 7.62mm rifle according to the 24-hour report, including two fatals.
It has been one of the busier weekends of the year at least.

7.62 mm.
That's a 30 Cal.
which 7.62 are we referring to?
There are over 10 common 7.62 rounds currently being used in the U.S.
More information needed....

The 24 hour report only lists "numerous 7.62 mm casings recovered" and word of mouth puts a rifle on scene.

What difference does it make you assholes. If it's that important to you and yours call the area, I'm sure it's not a secret.

Because my vest, and several others with good blast plates, are rated for 7.62 x 39, but not .308 or 30-06......asshole.

The shooting in 010 was from an AK-47 said to be .308 rounds. The victim/gangster took a head shot around 14th and Karlov.

Not a weapons and ammo expert, but was on scene in 010 and heard it was an AK-47 also.

Totally stupid new Po-Po's! Don't know ammunition. Don't know gun's! Don't know shit!

If a 7.62 doesn't go through your vest, the 'blunt' trauma will kill you anyway!!! The vest company will make the claims that their vest wasn't penetrated, but your dumb ass heart will be bursted on the hit.

Why do we not have such weapons, in patrol cars.

In 010 recently, a State Trooper chased a mope who bailed out of a car into a gheto six-flat. He does not know where he is and neither do we. Not too bright, right.

We finally find the trooper when he comes out, toting an AR-15 with a Tach-light mounted on the muzzle. Glad he was not hurt.

Why do we not have these kinds of toys, or at least shotguns in patrol cars.

Because of political correctness, so as not to intimidate the ( fill in the blank )community.

It is cheaper, in all respects, (training, equipment, liability) to bury a dead copper, than to defend a cop in a questionable shooting. If the city buries a cop K-I-Aed, the mayor gets some time on TV to say how sorry he is for the family and support his anti-gun agenda. A questionable shooting, well you know that story all too well.

Blunt trauma will not necessarily kill you, if you wear a properly rated and fitted vest. For large caliber rifle rounds, this will mean hard armor plates. Is anyone on the job with CPD even issued hard plates and carriers, other than SWAT? I presume keeping a privately purchased rig in the squad would be some sort of rules violation, right?

12:18, the city took shotguns out of cars after the blizzard of 6X or 7X or whatever.

Cars (including patrol cars) were abandoned all over the city. When time came to clean up, they found shotguns missing from abandoned patrol cars all over. Very soon thereafter, shotguns were taken out of the hands of the police.

Another dazzling display of professionalism by the spoiled children of the greatest generation.

You could still take a shotgun out in a beat car until the middle of the Richard Brezyak (sp) administration. He did not want to bothered with the liability, expense and training.

When the shotguns were assigned to the car, cops got careless and foolish with them. The shotguns were used as ashtrays and garbage disposals. They were tossed around, blew out dashboards, and put holes in car floors and left them carelessly in the rack in the passenger compartment of down cars.

The few cops who took them out between the time that they went with the car and Brezyak stopped it altogether were pretty serious about the responsibility. The racks were in the trunks and most bought their own ammunition and cleaned and oiled the guns themselves.

It should be that way now, with shotguns and carbines. You want it, qualify with it and take care of it. But that makes too much sense, it might even save a cops life.

most of the Doe-Doe Birds on this job can't even shoot holes in a non-moving paper target, while armed with a standard police service revolver. And you want them to carry WHAT? Dream On, SWAT-Boy!!!
