Another Shooting

  • Chicago police fatally shot a man Thursday after he charged at them with a lead pipe and a meat cleaver in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, police said.

    A woman called 911 after seeing the unidentified man, thought to be in his late 20s, pouring lighter fluid on himself in an alley in the 4500 block of South Wood Street about 4:45 p.m, police said.

    Two Deering District officers responded, saw the man wielding the pipe and the cleaver and told him to drop the weapons, said Deputy Chief Michael Shields. The officers hit the man with chemical spray, but he lunged at the officers with the weapons, causing both to shoot him, Shields said.
  • JOLIET -- A man who allegedly stabbed a Joliet police officer with a knife was shot and killed by another officer Wednesday morning, and the dead man may be linked to a knife attack on another man earlier in the day.

    About 10:07 a.m. Thursday, a Joliet police officer was flagged down by a man carrying a baby who said a man had tried to stab him in the second floor hallway of an apartment building at 202 E. Cass St., according to a release from police. The officer requested back-up units and upon arrival of two other officers, the man pointed out the offender to the police.

    When officers approached the suspect in the hallway, he refused officers' commands to show his hands, the release said, then he suddenly lunged at the first officer, stabbing him in the stomach and chest.
When the job's done, make sure you go home alive.

Open Season on the Police Continues:
Attorney calls beating 'hate crime disguised as police work'
June 14, 2007 - A man is suing two Chicago Police officers and the city saying the officers beat him because he is gay.

Lawyers for Alexander Ruppert say pictures show the injuries he suffered in the beating. It happened in March 2006 near the Uptown Lounge at Broadway and Lawrence. Ruppert's lawyers say officers were on duty and responding to a call at the bar. They reportedly asked Ruppert to step outside then took him a block away and beat him.
Ruppert says during the attack officers used anti-gay slurs and only stopped when he told them he is HIV positive.

"This was a hate crime disguised as police work. Hate crime is particularly heinous, because it's not just a crime against a person, but against an entire community," said Jon Erickson, attorney.

Ruppert was charged with aggravated battery against a police officer. Police say the charges were reduced to a misdemeanor.

The city law department says it has not yet seen the lawsuit.

Mayor Daley joined Chicago Police Superintendent Phil Cline as they welcomed the new officers. Mayor Daley told the recruits that they have a great responsibility but to use common sense when they're out on the streets. Cline reminded them to respect their badge.

The new officers will be assigned to various districts throughout the City of Chicago.

You CAN'T be the police--and why worry about your neighborhood as you must be watching out your windows (front and back) 24/7. If you were the real police you would KNOW that a police car could drive by 6 times a day and the odds of you happening to see it drive by would be miniscule. The car would be visible maybe what 15 to 30 seconds. A Supt made those same claims 20+ years ago-- no cars drive by his house in 016. So the coppers lit up his house and blew the siren everytime they went by. All the bosses got dumped, guess he REALLY didn't want to know how often they did drive by. Give 004 your address, go to all the rolls calls and bitch, you might get the same treatment. The police are there, BUT if you WERE REALLY the police you would also realize that the "bad" guys would see the police coming and step out of sight until they were gone. You could always hire private security to sit in front of your house, but no need really as I forgot you sit in the window 24/7.

Get ready for the lawsuit:

From the Tribune Friday:
Morgan's girlfriend, Sandra Thomas, said Morgan was depressed and suicidal and wanted police to shoot him. She said she had called police for help with getting him to a hospital after he poured lighter fluid on his body and tried to light himself on fire.

"He wanted them to shoot him," said Thomas, who said Morgan had made cuts on his arms on Wednesday. "I didn't want them to shoot him. I needed them to help me get him to the hospital."

Eastside 109 and B.

You cant stop some one from coming into the neighborhood and shooting.

Dicks hauled in three from Cal City @ Whiting for the lie box.

You have great guys workin those thirty sector cars on all three watches, but do they really have time to patrol with the bs service calls taking them from the sector.

every one knew the target house was a latin king haven with activity all day before parents returned from their city jobs, CPD Civilian @ Streets @ San.

I blame your district commander, watch commanders and tac lt.

I am circulating a petition to have the 30 sector cars stay in the 30 sector and to have the same tactical coverage given in the 10 and 20 sector. The commander should be fired what did he learn from the assination of the innocent black kid on Baltimore in May? Were is jesse Jay when this black kid was killed at random by the spanish gang slum. My brother in law is going to turn petition over to the media and the alderman.

Would this have occurred under fast eddie?

cry all you want you will not get any services until you stick together as a community and demand a district commander with ties to the whole community, not just the upper middle class black and poor black sections of the fourth district.

Start a petition drive to remove him, contact the news media, dailey will get the message hopefully you wont get the wrestler(008) but its time the 004 district and all off area 2 get a fair amount of white or hispanic commanders.

trivia-who was the last white or hispanic commander of 004? who was the last white or hispanic area deputy?

Go back twenty three years ago when an off duty copper was almost beaten to death on 130 th street when he stopped a robbery.

The order then was for one or two cars to stay in the 30 sector.

Watch now how many houses will go up for sale dirt cheap, our neighborhood was the only one in the City that did not increase in economic value, in the last five years(tribune 2006) What cant be sold will be rented out section eight.

Dont blame the police assigned to 004, blame your commander and elected representatives

I agree with your anger, but blame
the right people your mayor and his police administration.

The police are never going to be able to put a major dent in the gang violence, drug activity, or drive-bys as long as the liberals have us doing police work with one hand cuffed behind our backs. Good job getting that pistol officer, oh and sign here for your cr#, poor little gangbanger claims (insert B.S. complaint here). Way to go with that narcotics arrest, oh, almost forgot, here is your civil suit, poor little drug dealer claims you harrassed him and trampled on his civil rights to sell drugs in peace. Thanks for making your presence known in the caps hot spot by confronting the gangbangers. Oh, here is another cr# from one of the parents that attended the last beat meeting and complained about all the bangers in the area. Turns out you stopped one of her kids who might, or might not be, a banger and she doesnt like you harrassing her kids.
Its very easy to point the finger and say the police are not doing their job but the fact is we are doing it the best that we are being allowed to do.
The biggest problem in the south side is not the gangbangers driving through, its the gangbangers moving in. Too much sect. 8 moving into the area, thank Daley for that.

There is not a lot they can do when they are not able to actively patrol their beats because they are handling calls on the north side. The calls for service have been going up fast and manpower is steadily going down, and that, is a recipe for disaster. And yes, you can suppress crime by making traffic stops. You can get guns, drugs, and warrants by doing them which means locking up the criminal element while also making a visible presence. Whats your big plan for success? Put in a bid next period and go over there and show them how its done Mr. "working police" who doesnt even know the value of doing traffic stops. All the other stuff that you say is also "the problem" is the fault of the upper management (sheets, missions, staffing). But, I have yet to see a cmdr or a lt with the power to hire more police. Address what the real problem is, MANPOWER.

You can get guns, drugs, and warrants by doing them which means locking up the criminal element while also making a visible presence. Whats your big plan for success? Put in a bid next period and go over there and show them how its done Mr. "working police" who doesnt even know the value of doing traffic stops. All the other stuff that you say is also "the problem" is the fault of the upper management (sheets, missions, staffing). But, I have yet to see a cmdr or a lt with the power to hire more police. Address what the real problem is, MANPOWER.

How dare you monday morning quarterback a police shooting that you WERE NOT there on you worthless piece of garbage. Unless you were there you have no idea the circumstances that lead up to the shooting. It was a good shooting that officers tried to avoid. The fact that you would make such a retarded comment tells me that you HAVE NEVER been involved in a police shooting and probably never even pulled your gun out of the holster except to tell bullshit war stories. May you rot in hell piss-ant.

Ah--- the "IM A PUSSY SYNDROME". Ive read about it but never actually came in contact with a true case. Would you mind stopping by after your tour when you sit on your ass for 8 hours and do absolutely nothing so I can pick at your brain a little?

To the 009th District Coppers who took out the "offender" with the lead pipe. GREAT job!!!!!! You two make help us REAL WORKING FEMALE coppers look good. I'd ride with either of you any day of the week, and no matter what they say, so would any guy in 009 or any other district! You made us all proud! Good luck to MT too. You guys who have been dissing him all this time will be missing him if you have to call a 10-1. Stay Safe out there!

To the moron who began his last comment:

To the SCC pussy ass non-police who left out my comments...blah blah blah

We have no doubt the two coppers who killed this nut job are heroes. We've said as much. However, twice now, you have used a word that we find so offensive, any comment that contains it is automatically flushed. It won't see the light of day, except by accident.

And we find it interesting, even hypocritical, that on one hand you praise these women who did the job they are supposed to do (and did it well) and on the other hand, you use what we consider to be the most degrading term inmaginable describing women to attempt to put us down.

So go fuck yourself dumbass. If you don't know the rules, you don't deserve a forum. And if the only way you can insult us is calling us "rhymes with shunt" over and over, then your defense of these hero officers isn't going to get published.

Now go get your shine box!

Say what you want about MT post 5:38pm, but there is no denying that he is the MOST intense officer in 009. As far as MT goes, the grass won't be green until he becomes SOS. There will never be another like him in 009 again.
Tully, you worked hard to get to SOS. You made it! Don't forget about your REAL POLICE friends in 009. Why you want to become SWAT I'll never figure out, but hey, that's your style and I give you props for trying. Crazy fucker!
I'll always remember the way you could strike fear into a badguy. You always lead by example. God has blessed you with ability. Don't listen to assholes dude. Your personality will be missed and not just when shit goes up. If I could, I'd be there in SOS with you. You're a genuine person and the real deal in 009. Stay safe.
So long dude.

Sad really. WTF? SOS? Other than the war in afganistan, I figured M.T. aka "purple shades" would never leave 009? Good man. Tough as they come.

Marty, you have always had a passion for 009. You were fucking a bit too loyal at times. I've never met anybody who took as much shit as you did and who stayed friendly like you?! Whenever somebody from 009 would get attacked on this blog, right or wrong, you spoke up for them. You didn't care who read what you had to say. You didn't worry about the backlash. You even signed your name. (Never let the white shirts know who you are on these things.) That's what I'll always remember about you. You got character. You're a fighter. Envious people can say what they want to hurt you, but losing you to SOS really does make an impact. Believe me, the workers are going to miss the hell out of you. SOS is getting a fine hard working officer. I'll bet Pop is proud. Thank you for your service to the 009 district and our country. Keep in touch ok?

What I said was not a reflection on MT as much as it is a reflection on officers who swear that they have the worst gig around. Why anyone would want to go to S.O.S. at this time is a mystery to me.

I don't know MT, but I think if you want to go to that unit at this time, you are suffering from the "Grass is Greener Syndrome."

No doubt about it. He might be a great guy but as the saying goes, the grass isn't always greener.

I don't know the guy, but either way, I wish him luck.

Talking about the grass being greener does not make me an asshole. I said nothing negative about the guy other than he suffers from that because that Unit is not the place to go right now. You are treated more like an adult on a beat car than you are there. Trust me, he will see!

Hey Tully! While I was at the going away party for you and Diaz, somebody brought up how we're not going to see your smiling face at roll call anymore sitting in the first chair in the back row?
Ya know what? That info. actually depressed me. Thanks a ton I think I'm gonna need a antidepressant? Why do you have to leave 009 anyway? You are one of the coolest officers I have met and I mean that.
Good luck to you in SOS. Don't worry about a thing there. Sorry to lose ya! Thanks.
p.s. I'm taking the first chair NOW!
