Cease Fire Loses Budget

Here's our problem with Cease Fire - it treats gangs like a mini United Nations. Like these gangs are anything but law breaking thugs, bringing narcotics, guns and mayhem to neighborhoods. Cease Fire organizes parades, rallies and insists on negotiating "treaties" between warring factions over dope turf.

These gangs don't own the streets. The streets are supposed to be owned by the taxpayers and citizens for their use, not for illegal commerce and all Cease Fire does is grant a veneer of legitimacy to criminals.

They also appear to have sloppy record keeping, making them low level criminals themselves, which really isn't surprising as they hire "reformed" gangsters all the time.

Channel 5 and Channel 7 cover the protests, but we'd rather see the $6 million spent somewhere else.

I totally agree SCC. Here's a lightbulb moment, how about maybe throwing HALF that money into our neighborhood schools in Chicago! Then we could actually use them, instead of sending our kids to private schools!

Can I just have a local public school that my tax money goes to fun where I can safely send my kids?

That is all I want.

How shocking, an organization run by crooked revrends, that hires gang bangers to do it's bidding, and there is a hint of inpropriety with regards to its handeling of funds.
Mabey, just mabey the money was stolen.

They are all crooked, it is the Chicago way.

These are " men of God" how dare I question thier integrity.

I know I've arrested a Cease Fire "worker" who also ran because he KNEW he had a warrant, and this was right after he led a march! So this pillar of society not only committed a crime, but is so interested in doing the right thing now that he didn't show up to court and resisted arrest! I'm sure I'm not the only one who has locked up one of these dirtbags either.

NO MORE TAX DOLLARS SHOULD BE SPENT ON THIS CRAP ORGANIZATION..THAT WAS SET UP STRICTLY TO EMPLOY "SO CALLED FORMER GANG-BANGERS" AND GIVE THEM THE LEGITIMACY THAT THEY LACKED AT BIRTH!!!
***********************************

Also I had milk bubbles pouring out of my nose this morning while eating my apple-jacks.

It seems that the Sun-Times now gives citizens 1/2 page forums to write any B.S. thoughts that come to their dim-witted little minds.

In this case, Annie Johnson the mother of the former habitual criminal known as Aaron Harrison who got his "just reward" last month after pointing a pistol at the police.

Fuck Him and Her!

She essentially defends herself as a nominee for mother of the year, and her dead son as alter-boy of the year..all the while railing against Police & law enforcement in general.

This is the part where cereal was gushing out of my nose..at the end of the article, in an effort to give her and her fellow thugs credibility she tells readers to read "Stolen lives:killed by law enforcement."

It is a compilation of highly "FICTIONALIZED" stories about people shot and killed by police nationwide.The names are real but the stories are molded into almost completely fictionalized accounts of how these people where murdered by police. It is total Bull-shit!

Example: An officer I know was in a shooting. A gangbanger shot at him more that a dozen times, he chases and gunsdown the banger..Dead! End of story!

Within a week, these leaflets start appearing all over the place. Poor quality "ditto" copies of this gangbangers last 24 hours of life. "Jon Doe's(not his real name) life:Stolen by the police"

Talks about how he was going to get his life together and had a job interview scheduled for later that day..only hours after his fatal encounter with the police. Typical "my son the alter-boy shit!"

I mean I read it and nearly puked. It was a total bunch of left-wing, anti-police, hatchet-job, crap..Nowhere even resembling anything that could be called journalism. The authors are anonymous, they don't even sign their work!

The organization is a "shadow group" of anti-police, pro-criminal, do-gooders. They sometimes call themselves "the october 22nd coalition"

They once went by:
Stolen lives, c/o Wellington church, 615 w. wellington ave, Chicago. 1-888-NO-BRUTALITY.

WWW.unstoppable.com/22

A REAL SHIT BUNCH OF ASSHOLES!

When I saw her reference them, I laughed..and thought "Way to totally get no sympathy from me bitch!"

This group seeks out similar loser types..who's little alter-boy's have had legal run-ins with "the law"..and attempts to rewrite history & give them a voice to achieve their 15 minutes of fame!


Hey Annie, I'm sure you are still fertile. Go find any west side 4 corner hustler to impregnate you..to replace your alter-boy son Aaron!


Fuck you and your "stolen lives" hood-rat reverend's!!!!!!!!!

Hello boys and girls take a minute and look at this website and then maybe we all can petition our much maligned F.O.P. to confront the media and the "ministers of G-d's word" and throw in good sister Mary Mitchell while we're at it and ask all of them to point out all the ones that have paper routes and sell Christmas cards to help Momma make ends meet...."http://youtube.com/watch?v=8BanvqOAz0s"
Officers, all of you; dark blue, light blue, aqua blue whatever, we are all in this together and we all have a stake in this.
Take a minute like you are doing to read this and fire off a couple of letters or emails to the media and our elected officials demanding an explanation for this website and the content on it and get your families involved while we're at it. Ben Franklin said "Gentlemen we must hang together or we will assuredly hang separately." No truer words were ever spoken or applied to ourselves, the Chicago Police Department..
I dont want to see another star go up at 35th and Michigan because some officer got "jittery" and thought twice about getting sued instead of going home.
Just another lovely day in the neighborhood..and yeah I know the courts ruled that being in a gang is not against the law in and of itself...Most importantly, go home safe today............then kick the cat! Also check this out. "http://cabrinimob.net/index.htm"

Two coppers lied and let a Sgt. hang. One is now in 018-3rd Watch,D.S. The other works 016-3rd Watch,C.B. Daddy's clout helped D.S. out of many jams.
