Mary Mary, Quite Contrary

It isn't often that Mary Mitchell makes mistakes...

We'll actually, that isn't true. She makes errors constantly. We can only imagine that they're deliberate errors to promote an anti-police agenda, because it's worrying to think someone could be as ignorant as she is and still make a living writing for a rag like the Sun Times. It's much more comforting to think she's a tool of the left than think that she a completely babbling idiot...

OK, that isn't true either. It's WAY more comforting to imagine she's a babbling idiot. Get a load of her column today (we read it so YOU don't have to! All part of the service):
  • I don't believe Jemelle Lloyd did it. And I don't think Chicago Police officers, who arrested him Oct. 27 for assault of a man in the Hyde Park community, had enough cause to charge him with attempted robbery and assault. Nonetheless, Lloyd, who turns 18 on Monday, could end up in the criminal justice system.
Um, Mary? You state in your column, your very own column, about 11 paragraphs down, that University of Chicago police detained and arrested him. University of Chicago police are not Chicago Police. In fact, there are somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 or more separate police agencies operating within City limits. Most of them have agreements to utilize CPD facilities for transport to Cook County Courts. But they aren't CPD. And CPD doesn't charge people with crimes - State's Attorneys do. On sworn complaints. And we'd be surprised if any CPD officer's signature appeared on any of the complaints. And the fact that Lloyd might end up in the criminal justice system before he's 18 shouldn't be a surprise - at 17 you go to County Jail as an adult in this state.
  • On Oct. 27, Lloyd, 17, shouldn't have even been in Hyde Park.
So you're starting out of the box saying Lloyd shouldn't have been where he was? Like he was disobeying mom's rules? You're starting to bury this kid already Mary.
  • A University of Chicago cop gave a Chicago Police officer a description of all six suspects and said they ran into a park at 5450 S. Kenwood, where they were detained and taken to the University of Chicago police station at 55th and Ellis.
Thank god you aren't an attorney Mary. Prosecuting, you'd lose this case on a motion. As the Defense, this kid would go to the chair - and you'd still claim it was everyone's fault but yours and his. Let's try to get your story straight next time before you go around the bend painting all police as evil, racist, railroading sons of bitches, eh?

How about we watch this case go up before a court? If it's as weak as Mary claims, Lloyd will get off shortly and be able to sue the U of C for false arrest and whatever else will stick. If Lloyd pleas out, we'll all know that he was guilty of something and took the easy route out. If he gets convicted, we can all remind Mary that everyone who gets caught in a criminal act, from the person putting hands on the victim to the lookout who yelled the police were on the way, is guilty of the entire crime. Remember, the state charges the passengers with murder just for being in the car during a drive-by.

And stop misidentifying University of Chicago Police as Chicago Police. You did it in your previous column and you do it again in this one. You are an agenda driven hack and it's showing. Again.

The Chief of Police at UC is still Africam American correct. Is the victim non African American, and a victim of Africam Americam racism as many of the assaults last year were, if its whitey commiting these crimes against African Americans its automatically racism.

Technically you may be correct when you say University of Chicago Police are not CPD but the reality is that 50% or better of all UCPD officers on the street at any time are off-duty CPD officers. Several of their supervisors are also off-duty CPD supervisors. Saying that UCPD is not the same as CPD is generally a distinction without a difference because even the non-CPD officers are state certified and attended either the Metro-Academy or the downstate Police Institute in Champaign. Some are also suburban officers, sherrif's police, or Metra P.O.'s. Former ADS Rudy Nimocks is still the Director of their department.

The Tribune today has an article in the Metro section in regards to poor police service and rampant crime in 007. Maybe someone should inform the 1st Watch, Watch Commander she should be locking up these individuals that have warrants instead of giving grief to Officers that arrest these Officers. Also maybe herself and her desk crew should get rid of that hater mentality, and outside units would be willing to do some Police work in 007.

Don't let Mary get to you guys. She is nothing but a race baiter. She cannot see past a persons color, white, or a persons job, Police Officer. She has never been one to let the facts get in the way of a story. I actually feel sorry for her. It must suck to go through life with so much hate and insecurity that you have to twist facts.

Mary Mitchell:

Facts supporting charging, which I deduced from your article:
#1 Victim was robbed.
#2 Crime was observed by UIC P.O. who made identification.
#3 Individual who drove alledged offenders to scene is co-operating with police and gave statement indicating that the charged offenders talked about committing a crime.
#4 The SAO would of never approved felony charges unless they believed they had a winning case.

Good to know the U of C Pd had enough PC to stop him, and CPD had enough to process him and the W/C had enough to sign off on it and the W/C of 51/Wentworth had enough to sign off and take him.

But noooooo. Mary Jailhouse Lawyer Mitchell says there isn't enough. Let's free the poor lad.

No surprise there, 007 is probably the worst shit hole I ever spent time in, thank god I only got detailed there for a few months. Everyone who fucks up around the city gets dumped there, and I mean the supervisors. Most of the guys working there where hard charging good police. That desk crew is another story, theres nothing like those angry females on 3rd watch. "Joe", is also a different animal there- "They knows their rights"

Jemell Lloyd was right there when all the offenders were arrested. He goes to school with the other offenders. He was identified by the black victim as one of the offenders. The other offenders admitted to the crime and said Lloyd was with them too. Lloyd is the only adult in the group. Mary Mitchell knows the juveniles will get no time for this, so she only writes about poor Jemell Lloyd. Why don't you talk to the innocent black victim Mary. Ask the victim if race was involved in this arrest.

i believe its called libel when a columnist knowingly misrepresents the facts. In fact the current case involving a state supreme court justice hinges on just such statements made by a newspaper columnist, any of you all lawyers on the job feel like trying the westside lottery against mitchell and the sun times?

As Malcolm and Coldtype will tell you, this kid was arrested because he is black. Never mind that the other 5 kids he was with were planning a robbery on the drive to UofC...that poor kid was just going to get dropped off at the library! Then he saw, to his horror, what his friends had said they had planned to do, and were following through, and he quickly ran over to tell them to stop(NOT to help in the robbery). He then ran from the police with them all the while telling his friends what a bad thing they had done! (as opposed to not taking the "let's go rob some people in Hyde Park trip" in the first place) In reality- Bottom line: Mary is a racist. Not only against white people, but against black people. The more Sharpton, JJacksons , Mitchel et al are embraced by the black communitty, the longer the communitty will be kept fatherless, poor, and in prison. It would take real bravery for her to look at this and ask where this kid went wrong...friends...family...school...but she is a racist and chooses her own selfish needs (sell papers by claiming racism) over helping the communitty she has long turned her back on. Shame on you Mary.

Mary Mitchell is decent enough to answer your emails if you write her. A lot of Sun Times personalities will not.

It is my perception, over the years, that her greatest weakness as a journalist is that she will not make the effort to get the other side of a story, or make the effort to find and interview the other parties involved. I once asked her why she didn't make an attempt to interview more than one party and hear all sides of a story, which is something a basic Journalism 101 high school editor would routinely do, before publishing. The other parties, the police had a right to be heard if they were being called out in a newspaper article. She agreed that they should, but believed her contact with news affairs, rather than the actual officers, was sufficient.

I don't know what her background is, but it probably didn't involve hard news reporting, where you have to check facts and verify things. What she is doing is strictly an opinion piece, and should be taken as such. As an opinion piece, she can say what she wants.

Her work is basically lazy journalism and, ethically, it wouldn't stand the scrutiny of a freshman college communications instructor at Columbia College.

Don't get worked up about it. The truth comes out eventually.

Dear Murph,

I have to go to the aid of my comrade, "Coldtype." I could be wrong here, but I didn't see him write such a statement. I realize he is almost as liberal as I, but give em a break.

As for "lil Macolm," it looks like he has disappeared again and has not commented on this issue.

"Saying that UCPD is not the same as CPD is generally a distinction without a difference because even the non-CPD officers are state certified and attended either the Metro-Academy or the downstate Police Institute in Champaign."

Huh?
Both departments are "state certified" so therefore the same? Why don't you just say they both have badges and therefore are the same?
You then attempt to prove similarity by pointing out a difference (they attend downstate Police Institute in Champaign)!
Interesting debate technique to use the oppositions supportive points to destroy your own arguement. No debate trophy for your team.

I am talking about a certain criminal element that exsists among all races).....and so in providing excuses for criminal behavior....she perpetuates the spector of a black victimhood mentality, that at the end of the day will do more to keep Blacks down than the Jim crow laws ever could.......its a counterproductive view point that has among other things...ultimately led to the de-policing of Black neighborhoods....neighborhoods where everthing is viewed as the policemans fault...(a Black man pointing a gun at the police and is shot...and we now have marches at city hall against police brutality)....and how can you now blame the police.....why would you risk yourself in a arena where no matter what you do....you are wrong.....when has a so called Black leader ever thanked the police for protecting the neighborhoods they patrol.....the answer is never.......it does not serve their agenda....it is interesting that these so called Black leaders and intellectuals Sharpton, Meeks, Mitchell and Jackson to name a few...all encourage and make their living off of the Blacks viewpoint of disenfranchisement...while the working class Blacks who by and large will stand shoulder to shoulder with their white counterparts on issues such as crime are denounced as sellouts by the self appointed spokesmen...white and black of the black community....and because the Black community are encouraged to embrace the us against them mentality....they are also encouraged to mindlessly protect the criminal element that is among them....and having done that ....they have fostered the black on black crime statistics that exsist in their community...........Mary Mitchell is as mindless as the Black politicians...she makes her money at the expense of Black advancement....

Hey Lefty...my comments about Coldtype and Malcolm (and the reason they've been silent on this post) originated on the "Losing with Grace" thread. You may come to a different conclusion than I have, but I think given the choice of going to a "police are racist" rally for an hour, or tutoring a young black student every week, both Malcolm and Coldtype would go to the rally. Why? Because they don't really want to change the future for blacks, they just want to be able to blame every failure in the black communitty on someone else. It is that kind of racism that hurts the black communitty.

Meanwhile......

Instead of ignoring this racist nincompoop, people keep READING her and QUOTING her and CLICKING on her links and articles on the papers site and even buying the paper to read her race baiting crap.

When you do these things you are doing EXACTLY what she wants you to do. YOU are SELLING her. YOU are making her MORE MONEY.
YOU are CONTRIBUTING to her popularity and marketability.
Of course she's a hack and racist, but YOU'RE FALLING FOR IT!

Don't read the mope.
Don't click on her links, her papers links etc. etc.
You can pay her/make her with a mouse just the same as buying the friggin paper.
Don't DO IT!

My personal opinion is that she knows she has segment "A" of the market that read her. WE are the "B" segment that she SHOULDN'T HAVE but GETS through the baiting and nonsense. Do you EVEN WANT TO READ a paper whose editors KNOW this and ENCOURAGE this race baiting?


Don't give her a penny. Ignore her. Let SCC do the dirty work and leave it at that. SCC repeatedly says he'll read it SO WE DON'T HAVE TO!!

Pay friggin' attention.

True story about our favorite writer MM. About 5/7 years ago Mary was car jacked on her way home I believe it was in 15th or 25th District. Low and behold this becomes a "heater case". Well our fine officers locate the vehicle and offender. End result offender was released w/out charging because Mary did not want to send another male black to jail! UH he is not just another male black, he is the person who car jacked you with a gun. He is an offender period regardless of race!
Stay safe family first!
