Cameras Get One

  • For the first time, detectives may have solved a killing using video from a police blue-light surveillance camera, the department announced Sunday.
But not because the camera captured the shooting:
  • About 470 of the cameras have been installed atop utility poles in high-crime neighborhoods across the city since 2003. Their flashing blue lights are intended to scare off drug dealers and gang members.
  • A camera at Keeler Avenue and Cermak Road recorded two men running from a car used in the June 11 shooting of 14-year-old Roberto Duran, police said. A school surveillance camera showed the same car in the 4200 block of West 25th Street minutes earlier when Duran was killed, according to Harrison Area Cmdr. Steve Peterson.
Hopefully, there won't be too many loose ends in this one. The only thing a camera is (as stated previously), is a witness who won't change its story.

The city should use the Zillow web sight satellite for spying on the gangbangers.

Oh Boy, real success, could have promoted probably a hundred new dicks or more, for the cost of these cameras, that so far as I know, have now solved ONE crime. Bureaucratic Democrat fuzzy-logic success at its best. What a bunch of incompetent simpletons.

The cameras captured images of the offenders running from the traffic crash after the shooting, and blocks away. They are not clear enough to identify anyone. You could not see their faces. The car they crashed and ran from led to their identification and arrests. Witnesses doing the right thing, and a get-a-way car left behind solved this homicide. The pod camera had NOTHING to do with it.

I am so depressed. I can't get this city out of my pockets. They are "nickel & dimeing" me to death.

I very recently bought a 25 year old Chevy pick-up truck just to drive to the home improvement center and back. I bought the plates & Insurance. Then went to get a city sticker, I almost soiled myself when the clerk told me "okay, that'll be $150.00"

I am like "this is B.S." That's 15% of the purchase price of the vehicle. A vehicle that I plan to use maybe 12 times a year.

This as the state of Illinois spends $5,900.00 a day for a private state aircraft to fly Gov. Blago to Springfield 5 times a week.

That's just for the plane and not the salaries of the support staff that go along with air operations.

Lord knows what similar money goes to king richie for his extravigant lifestyle.

I'm tempted to cancel all my insurances, plates, city stickers, etc. and if I get stopped or have an accident, I'll just get out and run like a gangbanger. Hell, they seldom get caught!

Thanks for letting me vent!

the truth of the matter is that the drivers girlfriend went into A/4 and spilled her guts. Seems she found out he was screwing around behind her back. Once they got the driver he ratted out the shooter. All the cameras did was verify parts of the story. Without the scorned girlfriend they would still be on the run

Venting is good, I agree with your post.
Now here's something that's really gonna get you and the working (street cops)police.
I've been working the desk....OK make your goofy comments, but I earned it unlike most. Here's the kicker, the good citizen's will be coming into the station's in packs, now until 15 July stating I put my city sticker on my windshield and someone stoled it. Majority of these citizens need an interpreter, all have several vehicles per household....so go figure, they pay full price for one and get a second at a discount price. We have to give a report, even though it's total B.S..
I cann't begin to count the missing Matricula cards I write every day. I refuse to write them without proof of residency and name..... over half of them leave and never return...so what's that telling us.

The camera story was fabricated and handed to the press, after the media began questioning the camera project....ALL because of this blog.

THE MEDIA SHOULD ASK HOW MANY CRIMES HAVE ACTUALLY HAD VIDEO FOOTAGE TO USE.

ANY ONE BID TO THE FUSION CENTER THEY HAVE NICE HIGH DEF TV S BUT THEY DONT SUBSCRIBE TO RECIEVE HI DEF. WHAT A WASTE

HOW ABOUT FIXING THE PISSER IN 011 A VICTIM HAD TO TAKE A CRAP ONE DAY AND THEY WERE MORE FRIGHTENED BY THE WASHROOM THEN ALL THE HYPES SLEEPING IN FRONT.

the city clerks office has always been a place you could bullshit! why do we even need it? The only good thing is the new clerk refused any cpd details! He stated "the police are better off on the street where they I needed, i have a license and am man enough to drive myself around"! This is refreshing now will the city treasurer also do away with her detail or will the new supt finally put more police on the streets? How about eddie burke his huge detail time to have eddie hire a driver after all he has multi-millions in his campaign account and could easily hire a driver and rent a car instaed of the fancy unmarked he gets courtesy of us every 6 months! EDDIE SINCE YOUR BONEHEADED IDEA TO CHARGE PEOPLE DRIVING INTO DOWNTOWN IF YOU WOULD GET RID OF YOUR CAR AND DEATIL YOU WOULD SAVE THE TAXPAYERS LOTS OF MONEY PUT UP OR SHUT-UP! HET ED ANOTHET THING ABOUT OUR CONTRACT COULD YOU GET IT SETTLED ASAP? I KNOW YOUR GOLFING EVERYDAY BUT HOW DOING SOMETHING FOR US? AFTER ALL MARK PROMOTED YOUR BOOK FOR FREE!
