Come Back Police!!!

That "No Snitching" line of clothing, posters, CD's and such is really working out for the south and west sides, isn't it? Mary Mitchell writes today:
  • According to the Chicago Police Department, so far this year there have been 27 police-involved shootings -- 12 of them fatal. Of the 27 police shootings, 10 involved persons 19 years old and under.

    During that same period, 1,253 persons were shot by random civilian gunfire. Of that number, 410 victims were 19 years old and under. The total number of fatal shootings in this age group was 44. Also, four teenagers were bludgeoned, four were stabbed, one was burned to death and four others were killed by an unknown weapon.

    Chicagoans like Patrice Brown's grandmother are begging authorities to do more.

    "The police need to clean this block out," Darlene Brown said after the shooting. "These people are just rowdy. They walk down the street selling their drugs and shooting their guns; they just don't care."

So now they want the block cleared out? And how will the Department accomplish that? Sorry Ms. Brown and you too Ms. Mitchell. But you, your reverends, and your community have been beating up on the police for far too long to expect us to shift gears that quickly.

How about an gesture of good faith on your parts since we've been the ones shit on recently? Turn over the shooters. We know that you know who did it. Turn over the gun. It's still out there. You know where it is and if you don't, you know someone who does. Then maybe we can have something to talk about.

I have an idea... let's put guys from FOP back in the BEAT CARS. The only person who truly came from a BEAT CAR was BD. Everyone else came from a unit - or worked the desk, prior to them becoming the FOP inside guys. My idea is have the FOP inside guys work a BEAT CAR once a wekk. Maybe than the FOP guys will understand what we are going through. Mark Donahue has not worked a BEAT CAR in over a DECADE.

That Police bashing racist that calls herself a "journalist" should gather jackson, sharpton, meeks and all the other so called "rev-er-unds" and do something about this zoo they call the westside and southside themselves. Nope, it's in their nature to point fingers at the Police for all the filthy trash that lurks those neighborhoods...

You see Mary it was really about those "Reverends" own self-interest agenda and moneymaking. They can give a sh**t about ghetto kids. The Chicago Police do care about these kids; it’s the constant hell we go through that has made us bitter and indifferent because of in part Sharpton/meeks/Jess

Why is it that black life has little value unless the person is killed by a police officer?
There's no question that community activists will lead a protest after a police shooting. But where are these same activists when young people like Taniya Ross and Patrice Brown are shot by gun-toting thugs?
WOW!! I can't believe she wrote what all of us have been thinking and saying, This is the second time I have agreed with her on one of her articles. The first was when she defended Danny Delopez for arresting a thug drug dealer who ended up choking to death on drugs he had swallowed. The neighborhood of course said the police choked him to death, which was BS.

In Chicago, police can only contact INS

Chicago became a sanctuary city in March 2006 by an Executive Mayoral Order -- one of an estimated 32 across the country, including New York, Seattle and the oldest, (1979) Los Angeles.

According to Monique Bond, spokeswoman for Chicago Police Department, officers can only contact INS during the course of an investigation when an offender declares illegal immigration status.

"Under federal law, enforcement of immigration law rests with the INS and not with local police. Chicago Police do not stop-and-question, detain or arrest any person that is not suspected of committing a crime or based solely on the grounds that the person may be an illegal immigrant. Chicago Police provide police service to all persons in the City of Chicago, regardless of their citizenship status."

I'm done doing Police work, and done helping an ungrateful community full of Police Haters, I'm just hanging around waiting for my City Pension!

At least my Pension cannot be taken away from me. Unlike my drive to help people and lock up the bad guys, that went away a long time ago.

I could care less if the bad guys rape and pillage the West and Southside neighborhoods and I blame my attitude on the store front reverends like Meeks, Pfleger, Rev. Jackson and this new nut in town AL Sharpton!

I hope you see this Mary Mitchell, most coppers on the West and Soutside have similar feelings these days, thus the high turnover as proof of most coppers transferring out of those high crime districts!

Police transfers are so common that there are no going away parties because people leave that frequently! It's like getting out of jail for Police!

You reap what you sow!

Hate on the Police and the Police won't be there when there is a real need for HELP! I have avoided many calls for help in the past few years as it is, I just go the other way and I know nothing can be done to me about it! Just human nature to respond this way!

Cleaning out a block would never work in this day and age. Do you really think this could be accomplished without violating somebody's civil rights? The ONLY way to do this IS to violate the rights of the "citizens". I for one am not going to put my career on the chopping block. You should NOT put yours there either. The black community created the mess they are in and the Rev's are just making it worse for the good people there. Sorry for them in general, but for the community at large, "that's like in the big city".
Keep this in mind as well, black officers who try to help are call "Uncle Tom" and traders etc. ect. by these people.
Lastly, you violate anybody's rights and are called on the carpet by the media, no matter how good your intentions are, your fucked. Do your eight and return home to your loved ones.

they say guns we "put on them" and guns used that shoot and injure/kill
members of "the community" and you will find that yes most of the "community" will pitch the gun to avoid "a case" but there are fools that don't and they end up being victims of not the police but there own stupidity. so the term rogue cop has run its course in this case so why don't we just bury it mar? oh and to my "shakey white" brothers out there its time to get our collective heads out of our collective asses and stop giving these sob's service is it worth your mother/father,wife,children not having you because of some complete bullshit! b safe,back each other up and go home to your family!

Attention beat 2573 3rd watch (JS)or as We like to call him Moron John. We think its about time you stopped hiding behind your mask of anonymity as you bash female coppers for working hard and trying to get ahead in life. Hard work is something you oughta try for once since for 8 hours a day all you do is write fuggin parking tickets. or wine about having to go from one end of the district to the other.

We want you to try something different for a change and that just say "10-4" after oemc gives you a meaningless task to perform. Most of the things you do are meaningless.

Leave people alone who work hard and try to get ahead and if you want to continually bash someone be a man and say it to their face.

and stop putting coppers dads pictures on district computers as wallpaper. you want to bash a copper thats bad enough, you fuck with his family and thats the ultimate low. if I was Mike I would come to 025 and kick your ass from here to california.

I call BULLSHIT on.... During that same period, 1,253 persons were shot by random civilian gunfire.

A simple computer check reveals why.

What there was was 1,253 Aggravated Battery by Handgun case reports (043A). Many of these cases are multiple victims and the City did not included Armed Robberies that involved the victim being shot.

They totally low balled the actual number of people shot in the City for this period of time. A conservative estimate is more like 1600+. And that doesn't include the 63 people shot by accidental means (usually a gang banger or thug).

Here's a radical solution:

Let's have Chicago's Black community AND the police definitively repudiate the criminals within their respective ranks.

Whenever some Black criminal gets killed doing something stupid, the Black community would sneer at anyone who tried to blame somebody else. The phrase "Robbing people and pointing guns at the police is dangerous." would be committed to everyone's memory.

Whenever some cop gets caught committing a crime, his fellow officers would NOT show him favoritism nor would they reflexively launch into Jesse-Jacksonesque rationalizations for why he shouldn't get fired or be charged with a felony.

Really, it's amazing how much the police and the reverends sound like each other, without either of them realizing it...

Enough already,
Without offending my bros. in blue who are of color I feel we need to bring something to light.We are of 2 completely different mindsets,priorities and moral fabrics.
The problem does NOT stem from black women...repeat NOT black women.Sure I bet you're saying "if they'd just keep their thighs shut".
However the MAINSOURCE OF AN ANTISOCIAL,BARBARIC,and COUNTERPRODUCTIVE LIFESTYLE revolves around the black man and his inability to assimilate into society and the mindset of "us" instead of "me".
There is not a perfect race,sex, or nationality known to mankind,but black men take the cake for "taking the cake".
Hypothetically can you imagine our world if black men actually attempted to contribute,other than Bill Cosby, Colin Powell and Obama...wait he's not black enough,strike that.Mary Mitchell says as much almost every day,but is not mature or realistic enough to admit it.We'd welcome ANY HELP she could provide with open arms.
It's time to admit we have 2 separate unequal worlds that aren't colliding,they are drifting so far apart one is on the distant horizon and sinking.I hate to say it, Mary is on the same one as US.
In my daily routine of assisting women of color I have found that for the most part ,they are misunderstood,abused,and above all loyal to the one's they love.Unfortunately they are not great swimmers,which leads them to sometimes make tragic decisions trying to swim to that horizon.
The time is now for us to work together,admit each's others fault's and try and at least take a chunk out of this shit pie that we all have to take a slice of because in the ned it just makes everyone very sick.

Retired cop arrested with credit cards
A retired Chicago police officer was indicted Thursday on felony charges of possessing credit cards that did not belong to him, authorities said.
Robert Maloblocki, 52, was arrested last month during a traffic stop on the North Side when police found a dozen credit cards in his possession from cardholders who had "never given him permission to use [them]," said Andy Conklin, a spokesman for the Cook County state's attorney's office.
Maloblocki was stopped by police for a minor traffic violation in the 1600 block of West Irving Park Road on July 22, Conklin said. He showed police an identification card that indicated he was an active police officer, but he later said he was retired, authorities said.
Police searched his vehicle and found a briefcase in the trunk, Conklin said. In it, they found the 12 credit cards in various names.

Why does this story keep popping up in the paper? What probable cause did 019 have to search this guys trunk? This seems like a very weird one indeed.

OFF SUBJECT, BUT CAN WE MAKE THIS A TOPIC????

HOW CAN WE SAVE THE CITY/MAYOR MONEY INSTEAD OF ROBBING FROM PETER TO PAY PAUL, OR TO MAKE A UNIT OR DEPARTMENT JUST TO PUT A FRIEND IN CHARGE.

And since real Policeman see things for what they are, I'm sure we can give insight as no one else can.

So, here's one of those ideas and information you might or might not have knowledge of:

Local 726 Teamsters start their day (garbage pick up-OUR GARBAGE MEN) at 6:00 am. There are 300 trucks Average $85 in man power per truck from 6-7. BUT, their contract prohibts them from starting to pick-up work until 7 am. So, at $85 time 300 trucks ($25,500) per day, you do the math on how much money is being spent by the City each year. Just think if their contract gets renogiated in October the gap that will decrease in the City's budget hole.

That's why if you ever see garbage men lurking around your house or sleeping in their garbage trucks,or pissing on your fence as I caught one of them and all before 7am., You'll see for yourself. Must be nice!

But hey, God Forbid if we're late for fucking roll call-no matter where you live or traveling from to get to the gig.

SO HOW ABOUT IT MAYOR? HOW COULD YOUR THINK TANK SCAMMERS LEAVE THIS ONE OUT OF THE MIX. But hey, lets keep screwing with the Police Department's Pension Fund and Benefits - Prick!

I as a police officer and a former 008th dist. resident appoligize to you, for the lack of concern from a fellow officer. With 13 years on this job I feel guys like this should be behind a desk talking ignorant to the desk sgt. Instead all the fat 2 year wonder females are riding those spots. Desks were made for the elder patrolman not the new on the job lardass secretary with a gun, broad!
You dont have to be dirty harry out there god knows thats over with, but you have to act when things like this happen right before your eyes. A fellow union working, feloow good person/chgo cit. deserves all the protection we can give. The lazy non working dummycrats of the east need to be left to their own vices.
Aint nothing good in the paper these days anyhow!

Maybe its the media and people like that have stopped the police.

If that officer went over there to prevent spray painting. If anything happened, the media would be on the side of gangbangers.

As a citizen write city hall how you feel that the police are not allowed to do thier job anymore.

If an officer does anything wrong, he/she is thrown under a bus by city hall, the media, and the public. If your mad get mad at the right people. Including yourself. Everyone hates the police til they need em.

No the Police are not afraid of the gang bangers. Why did you not say anything to them? Are you afraid of the gangbangers? Its your neighborhood too. If your not willing to get involved then you are part of the problem.

Just read the Blog and maybe you will understand why more Officers refuse to take a proactive approach any more.

Maybe he called it in and the beat car was assigned and handled the job while you let your dog run free and shit all over the park my children play in.

Maybe that officer was assigned to the park on a detail and was not alowed to change his location.

May he did not give a shit because he is tired of being screwed by the Demoratic Politicians you voted for. WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU WORKED WITHOUT A CONTRACT.

And we wont see a new contract for 3 more years.

I'm still licking my wounds from the lashing by the black chicagoans represented by press seeking reverends, so it'll be awhile. I'll let you know when I'm able.

I have heard too many stories like this from the public AND off duty coppers to call them all BS. One I personally know of is from a 18th dist. P.O. down the block from me.
When you hear shit like this, it is hard to believe you guys in the district when you say the west end problems are because of a "manpower shortage".

Local 726 Teamsters start their day (garbage pick up-OUR GARBAGE MEN) at 6:00 am. There are 300 trucks Average $85 in man power per truck from 6-7. BUT, their contract prohibts them from starting to pick-up work until 7 am. So, at $85 time 300 trucks ($25,500) per day, you do the math on how much money is being spent by the City each year. Just think if their contract gets renogiated in October the gap that will decrease in the City's budget hole.

That's why if you ever see garbage men lurking around your house or sleeping in their garbage trucks,or pissing on your fence as I caught one of them and all before 7am., You'll see for yourself. Must be nice!

But hey, God Forbid if we're late for fucking roll call-no matter where you live or traveling from to get to the gig.

SO HOW ABOUT IT MAYOR? HOW COULD YOUR THINK TANK SCAMMERS LEAVE THIS ONE OUT OF THE MIX. But hey, lets keep screwing with the Police Department's Pension Fund and Benefits - Prick!
**********

You are so right Brother!
UI see the garbage men getting paid for sleeping in their trucks and not doing anything til 7 am. I cannot blame them, thet have great contract lawyers who manged to make the City work for Streets and san motor truck drivers, instead of them working for the City. I don't know what kind of pressure can be put on these goofs to make the Mayor/ Burke see how they could save money. Don't know if they care simce the election has come and gone and our taxes are up.

There is of course another option that you haven't considdered, that we (the police) no longer care to help you. Thats right, we don't care anymore.What we do care about is going home every night and hopefully retireing one day with all our body parts and sanity intact.We also care about getting sued.Why should I risk my life and my house and all I have to help you when all we get is criticism, the risk is not worth it to us anymore.It's not just you Mary, the city is more than willing to hang us out to dry,give us 30 pending,suspend us,put a brick on us,etc.I got news for ya too Mary, that kid on Roosevelt and California wasn't shot because he was black and you and all the rev's know it and you also know who he really was, but it's so easy to cry racism and generate more anger in the community.There is so much more I could say but let's be blunt, you don't care about us so we don't care about you.

I love the whole "Rogue Police Officers" and "Out of Control Police Brutality" shit they keep harping on. I'm 37 years old. When I was growing up, you feared the police. If you fucked up, you felt it. Maybe not from the handcuffs, but from the ass beating you took, before they took you home to your parents....who thanked the officer, then proceeded to kick your ass. The reason these animals (all races) are out of control now is because the do not respect the police. The only thing they respect is pain and mony. If we were aloud to once again inflict pain and take away their money o the profits of their drug businesses, they would once again fall in line. There used to be police brutality and still is in some cases. Most cases are justified and 99.5% are needed whether legal or not. Now the police are the ones who ar handcuffed. People who told the Chicago Police to fuck off when they arrived on the scene left in the back of the wagon and needed denture work or x-rays "after" they were released. They only did it once. Now, little fucking kids of 8 or 9 are yelling in coppers faces saying fuck off 5-0, suck my dick motherfucker, and such and nobody says boo. It is society (and a lot of looking the other pared with a lot of females) that made this situation. It's too bad it has gone this direction. The city could be a nice place to live.....

One word: apathy. There is no excuse for this lack of diligence. Unfortunately, this is becoming the rule rather than the exception. Low morale = low service. There are way to few policeMEN on the ground. Guys are not getting time due, and are not being backed up as a result of manpower. This is not an excuse, it's a shame. You deserve police service, I'm sorry you didn't get it!! I am ashamed for that officer and the countless others who have simply given up. I hope this Dept can turn itself around. Fast.

Let's see, you're telling a citizen to enforce the law INSTEAD of the police? WHAT did you expect him to do? ARREST them???

OF COURSE he's afraid of the gangbangers. He's ONE ___UNARMED___ guy, with no power of arrest.

You don't ordinarily expect the police to make such a powerful argument FOR "stop snitching". Hell, he TRIED to "snitch" and the police wouldn't LET him.

May he did not give a shit because he is tired of being screwed by the Demoratic Politicians you voted for. WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU WORKED WITHOUT A CONTRACT.

And we wont see a new contract for 3 more years.

Go pound a nail!

If this post is true, you have to be one of the biggest jagoffs on this job to tell a civilian that tells you of a crime in progress to have the balls to confront them himself. And that he's on a lunch or personal, so fuck the bangers painting up the park? You, Mr. Shit-for-Brains" need to quit and be a Handy Day Laborer if this is how you feel. The guy DID get involved and this is the answer you give him? You justify this with the dumbest excuses anyone here ever heard. You are nothing but a cum stain gone wrong and I'm praying are not really a copper on this Dept.

Why does this story keep popping up in the paper? What probable cause did 019 have to search this guys trunk? This seems like a very weird one indeed.

TO: "Da Man" on 8/29; 5:38 PM

With all the spineless assholes that were annointed as "exempts" in the last forty years, I consider it an honor and privilege to have served under Commander George T. Sims, Jr. while assigned to the old 11th District ("Fillmo'") for three tears. I will always regard Sims as the the quintessential "greatest CPD boss" and a role model for all other bosses.

Sims, a proud black man who spent much of his career working the mean streets with his partner, the late James Bryson, was the real deal--fair; stand-up; able to relate to common beggars or kings and one class act.

At Fillmo' parties, poor George would always lose his ass in craps to Archie the Janitor. In the streets, he was often the first one in the door when the shit hit the fan. Oh so many memorable quotes attributable to Cmdr. Sims.

"In Fillmo', we ain't black, we ain't white--we're all BLUE!"

May God bless his soul. At Fillmo', he led the CPD through the most volatile times in its entire history.

.......................................................................No like i've said in other posts, sell your house Garfield/clearing and move to Mt Greenwood. It is only neighborhood that is still a "traditional" neighborhood. Only one we have in the city. It is like what we remember as kids. Peaceful, friendly and no “Bang Bang Bang coming from the radio as the 1987 Buick regal drives by sitting on silly looking 24” in rims drives by on your block rattling your china in your dining room

8/30/2007 03:15:00 AM

Are you BLIND?!?! Dude, look at kezie next time you cruise through greenwood. It SUCKS. I have been in mt greenwood for several years, and it amazes me 1. how fast this is going to poop and 2. how utterly blind longtime residents are to the fact that this is rapidly turning into a bad neighborhood. And don't give me the typical "move by pulaski and everything is ok" line....its only a few blocks from Kedzie, which is starting to look way too much like east of vincennes for my comfort. BANGERS standing around. Not good middle class black, mind you, but BANGERS. Went into white hen 111th and kedzie....my god, you would think I was at habibis grocery on king drive in the hood. Stay away from mt greenwood, or buy my house if you really want to move in....

NO EXCUSE for what that copper in 008 did when the citizen attempted to alert him to a crime. Unacceptable. For those of you who live in 008, THERE is your enemy.
The dogass in blue, and most likely, a WHITE MALE officer. Unfortunately, most of the posters here who would spit at him will fail to see themselves as mirror images of that pathetic excuse for a lawman.

Comeback Police?

Just wait until the Westside erupts into a riot and they start firebombing everything.

Or a terrorist incident occurs within the boundaries of Chicago.

People will realize that the CPD are their only redemption.

Idiot, the State Police don't want this place, they treat their own officers that work south in the city like second class citizens, and those guys put up with as much nonsense as us. Also, the National Guard, you think a Democratic governor dependant on Daley would have the nerve to embarrass him and call a state of emergency, afraid not. Besides, by the time they show up. its too late

8/30/2007 12:08:00 AM

So what do you suggest? Other than hiding behing the cowardly "anonymous said" as you sling out insults what REALISTIC alternative do you suggest? That we as "city workers" put life and limb at stake? No sir, I will not go down to your level, I'm simply stating that with other alternatives would the politicians stand by as a major city burns? Perhaps, but until we are given the powers that the Nat'l Guard could be given don't count on CPD being the LAST line between anarchy and civility?

You guys are off the mark. There is no excuse for that P.O.'s responce if the story is true. The 10 sector in 008 is home to alot of us and deserves more service than any of the high crime no tax paying areas like 011/007. However i'm not suprised considering what i hear at times on zone6 out of that 10 sector.

We have plenty of standup bosses today, if people were to actually open their eyes.
ROTI is a good boss of Gang Intel.
GRAU has always been a decent man in a variety of positions he has held on the job.
JACKSON has done a great job in 011; he has ALWAYS backed working coppers, and has always been one.
WYSINGER has always provided capable leadership in a variety of posts.
EUGENE WILLIAMS has done a very good job in a variety of positions.
ROTTNER has always provided fair, capable leadership.
AVILA in 014 is another example of good leadership.
THERE ARE OTHERS. Sometimes, the definition of a good boss is based upon how well the troops support the team too. I imagine it can be tough for any new boss to walk into a situation where the previous guy (or gal) has left the bar of performance well below acceptable standards. And we all know some of us don't like being called on the carpet for being less than productive, even when we've been previously warned that it was coming.

Lets hope that story is false! I don't work in 008 but when I get off work before i pull in garage I take a ride in my own car around MY NEIGHBORHOOD to see what is happening! A couple of times I called 008 the officers showed up pretty quick and took care of business! You have to remember the 30 sector for example in 008 is bigger than the whole 007 district but they have more police! Why simple really the mayor wants to try to show that he cares about people who do not pay taxes and live freely offof us that pay! MAYBE SOMEONE WHO RUNS TRU WHO HAS SOME BALLS (MOST LIKELY NO ONE) COULD ASSIGN UNITS TO LOCK UP THE JAGOOFS AND DO THIS FOR A FEW MONTHS TO SEND A MESSAGE TO THE PUNKS THIS IS OUR AREA GO BACK TO WHATEVER SCUM AREA YOU CAME FROM AND DO THAT SHIT THERE HERE YOU WILL GET YOUR ASS BEAT AND LOCKED UP!

I heard a lot of great things about Cmdr. Sims. He was a legend.
I didnt come on the job until after 011 moved to 3151 Harrison. Who was the moron that thought up the idea of putting pics of former D/C on station walls with our murdered police heroes. They got some of the most hated incompetent political scumbags hanging on the walls.

Take a look at the wall in 025. Curtin. They should put his picture on the targets at the range downstairs to improve marksmanship. I may not be the best shot on the job but I could unload a full clip of perfect head shots from 25 yards out on that piece of s#it.

There is no picture of George Sims on the wall at 011.
