Churches Pick Up the Slack

  • The leaders of several churches around the city are offering a plan to reduce homicides in Chicago and they are asking other churches and community organizations to join them. The church leaders are responding to a recent report showing the homicide rate rose in Chicago last year. Their plan includes establishing safe havens, distributing anti-violence flyers and having ministers on call for crisis interventions and conflict resolution.
Because lord knows that the manpower field shortages had nothing to do the rise in homicides. "Putting officers on the dots" sure sounds like a strategy, until you realize you've been in backlog for 13 hours straight and all the officers are on dots that have nothing to do with stopping gangs or guns.

Please look at the channel 9 news coverage of alderman Troutman's "Speech" at the city counsil" where after it is reported that Sam Adam Jr., her lawyer told her not to speak in front of cameras she did anyway. She Stated "I have fought on behalf of not just the people of the 20th ward, but on behalf of all the people of Chicago"
When you watch this, look at the M/1 Directly over her shoulder who is mouthing the words as she says them. It is obviously a rehearsed speech in tones reminisant of MLK.
Question is he her speech writer?

Heard the Area 1 Gun team let a homicide offender free last night. The B Team Rangers locked him up 30 seconds later. Two B Team Rangers were later deployed to Area 1 to ensure the cry babies were on the paper.

OFF TOPIC: But needs to be said,

007/ 011- You're not the bad ass REAL POLICE you think you are.

008- Like ALL districts and units in this city, have alot of really good AND really bad coppers. The one's that got yelled at, suck it up, wipe the tears, and change the diapers. Would you rather have taken time for violating an order given by the Chief of Patrol?

009- Again, has good and bad coppers. The "B" team, sorry you're a joke. Try going south of 51st and east of Damen and you might gain a little respect. The W/C should be filling the beat cars not taking away from them.

025- Despite what you might think, you ARE NOT the greatest police officers to ever walk the Earth.

003, 004, 005, 006- Sorry, you really do have my sympathy. Understaffed, crappy bosses, and not the friendliest customers.

TRU- Again, some good and some bad but by far, not ELITE.

There, now that it's been said, can we all finally just get along. To every copper out there, regardless of what district or unit you are in, stay safe and look out for each other.

I heard that there are 2 assholes in 009 that stopped by an Area 1 units traffic stop and told the Area 1 unit that the guy that was stopped was an ok guy. Unknown to the Area 1 guys that these bozos knew this guy was wanted for a homicide. As soon as they left the scene these assholes grab the pinch. Rumor has it they included a few of there 009th district ass monkeys on the paper and didn't even include the guys who made the stop. This 009th District guy is a real jag off and a suck ass to the bosses. I am sure anyone that knows anyone on 3rd watch in 009 knows about this "Billy Bad Ass". I know when I grow up I want to be just like him. The best part is to say to any police officer that someone is "Ok" when you know he is wanted for homicide. Not just a battery warrant or a bullshit traffic warrant but homicide. To that 009th district pissant, why don't you get out of the clout baby district and go somewhere else and be the real police? Back in the day your cocky little ass would have been laid out over something like that. I mean come on isn't that a little unsafe towards fellow officers?

Get it right moron. The Gun Team didn't let him go, they were told by some asshole that he was an guy and the po's knew him, and was stopped earlier by the Bitch Team Ranger. So they let the guy go, and the Bitch Team Ranger named Murph, tells this to the guys knowing he is wanted for homicide, because Gang Intel gave the heads up to 009 that he was in the area. So this Bitch Team Ranger basically puts these guys in harms way, and they weren't added to the paper. The best is this 009th District Bitch Team Ranger put it down as an assist call from the Gun Team, when there was no assist call given. Typical 009th district ass.

There is a rumor that this will be the last election for Alderman William J.P. Banks. It is rumored that he will retire sometime during his term so Daley can appoint his replacement.

Like maybe his condo developer/zoning lawyer nephew James Banks. He is flooding neighborhoods with multi-story/multi-use buildings that changes the population and traffic denisty. He gets any zoning change he wants, and isn't that hat Troutman was asked to do?

Of the subject, but in the past,
if one cop had a problem with another cop or a boss, they squared off or exchanged yelling at a watch party. There was none of this backstabbing on the website.

But it was a different policeman who went to watch parties and had the balls to go face to face with someone. This group was comprised of Vietnam veterans, high school graduates who were glad to get this job and get out of the factories, and guys from Catholic high schools who played hard and drank hard together. Now it's comprised of all spoiled, gutless crybabies who never wanted for anything.

All you whining crybabies from 008 and 018, grow up and be a man or a woman, you got a problem, don't hide behind this blog - face your problem.

9th district 3rd watch is incredibly f'ed up. Can these bosses be that stupid, blind, ignorant?? The whole watch is unhappy and at odds b/c of this stupid "b" team. Just dismantle it and get things back to normal. There are never any rapid cars up anymore so ALL the beat guys/girls are really pissed off. The dispatchers are equally pissed b/c there's no body to give jobs to. The "cool" B-team does not answer any calls. WTF? At least ride on some hot calls and back up your fellow officers. But no, they're no where to be seen all night. they're off having coffee outside the district b/c they are soooo cool and "undercover" now. What a joke. All i hear now around the station is F this job, F the b team, and F these bosses in 009. That sounds like some great morale. Me thinks the numbers might start to take a tumble...

I work in 003, and while I appreciate the respect, our bosses are actually good. I've only been denied time twice in the last couple of years, the awards are pretty slow, but by that same token, they don't really work to jam you up either. The clientele is, well, unfriendly for the most part, but hey, we're apparently doing better than 005. I'm not saying that I won't leave given a decent opportunity, but from the way it sounds, I'd rather stay here and listen to legitimate beefs about no computers and gang dispersals than all of this whining coming from the "Retirement" districts. If it's so bad there, we ALWAYS have openings available, and well hell, you can share the joy of the ghetto.....Kool Aid's on me!

If and I mean a strong "If" this is true about the rumor/story that claims Area 1 Gun Team guys stopped a homicide offender, the 9th district B-Team pulls up and instead of telling them "do you know who you have" or telling them "hey guys - ole boy you have in your back seat is wanted for murder" they tell them, they know ole boy and he's a good guy and talk them into uncuffing him and letting him go only to turn around outside the eyes of the Gun Team guys and lock him up. Lucky for everybody that dude, now uncuffed didnt decide to flee or fight or even worse. How stupid if this is true. to the guys from 009 - thats really fucked up. i'm sure if you would told the gun team guys whats up they would have shared the wealth with you's for bringing it to their attention. thats a show of true inexperience and incompetance on behalf of the 009 guys.

You've got some serious issues, "anonymous (15 Jan, 12:11AM)", claiming you won't police the "black" areas of your District because "they don't pay taxes, hate the white man...etc."
Maybe that's WHY some of them hate white people. Did you ever stop to think that your general ATTITUDE comes through when you deal with people of color? How else would you expect a person to react to that (and I'm sure you barely contain it when you deal with blacks & browns)? Don't pay taxes?? I'm white, and I live on South Shore Drive. You should see the condos that are being built over this way, and how my taxes have jumped!! With issues so obvious as the ones you have towards other races, it's a wonder you got this job at all. While I will admit to meeting some occasional hostility from blacks, I've also received it from Hispanics and white people too.
One day a black traffic violator squared off on me, and we were scrapping in the streets. Guess who came out to help ME? A black female senior citizen with a broom!
She wacked that guy enough that I was able to get him cuffed, and into my car. The woman told me she had observed me patrolling her neighborhood for years, and appreciated seeing me out there. If you truly believe all blacks are bad and/or tax cheats, you haven't seen the tax bills of white pols who live in 022 and 016. See what THEY pay in taxes, and compare it with your tax bill. In closing, I don't know you pal, but I'm sure glad you're not in a squad riding with me. These streets are tough enough without people like YOU making it worse for the rest of us who only want to do a good job, and go home at the end of the shift. And if you have that much hate in you, you're all wrong for this job.

Hey, i did not come on this job with any hate toward any race at all. In fact, i was considered extremely liberal in my thinking by all my peers. BUT, working in a black area forces one to dislike them. They give no respect to the police, spit in front of you as a sign of disrespect and will turn on your ass in a heartbeat. Countless times i've been chasing someone and he'll run past a group of people on their porch/street and i ask "where'd he go!? where'd he go!?" you know the response i get... I didn't see anyone. Well you know what F*ck them! They don't even want us to help clean up there neighborhoods. Most of them are in on the game and like to live like thugs. They don't appreciate us, and in my opinion are way beyond help. So i turn to an area that i can help and the people are decent and like seeing the police. I'm sorry, but that's the way i feel. I guess that's why this is a big dep't. We need people like you to work those areas and that can handle dealing with those people. I just cannot.

Amen brother. I edited the rest of your banter but I have to agree with you. There is no respect for us as the police or even human life for that matter. Thug life with no desire to change, improve, evolve, educate, clean. It doesn't take much to clean up your home. I got tired of doing the cockroach dance on domestics.

Being the police means making a differnece. There's no making a differnece there, it's only learn and leave.

No shame in that. It beats eating your gun.
