2007 a "Bad Year" for Cops

Across the board, not just here in Chicago:
  • The year 2007 is turning out to be an especially deadly year for police.

    To date, 170 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty -- that's nearly a third more than at the same point last year. It's also 17 percent higher than in all of 2006, and there is more than a month remaining in the year.

The site has links to the video report by ABC National News. According to their source, numbers haven't been this bad nationally since 1978. Spare yourself some angst and heartburn and skip the comment section from the site - too many whack jobs making fun of our dead, though it appears ABC has been censoring out a few of the more atrocious ones.

Part two of the report airs tomorrow at 1730 on Channel 7.

Does it really surprise you? Its open season on us, thanks in part to what those cocksuckers print and air. Everyone we shoot gets his first communion picture shown not his penitentiary release, and our same friends airing this, are the ones that goad the local homies to be interviewed on the air, and repeat how poor old boy was unarmed and just executed by the police. All the while disregarding the actual facts. No wonder its open season on us! Anyone who talks or cooperates with those scum (the media) deserves what they get.

It is war against the police! Why? Mostly liberal politicians with idiotic ideas! People like the clown danny davis who talks lies and bullshit! people like daley who likes his army of tax payer paid free bodyguards but in reality hates the police! Like I said working police is over with but I and I hope others always back up each other all we have is US! Thanks also to the media assholes who spotlight and entice the war on police! God bless officers everywhere and to those who have been killed RIP!!

Always sad to hear about the death of a Police Officer. I say from now on we stick together and screw the politicians. They are seldom there for us when times are bad. They NEVER back us up so DO NOT include them when we do something courageous and outstanding. Remember them at the polls and vote no to all the ones who speak against us.

Look, it's not 'liberal' politicians, there ain't no such thing as a liberal politician in this town or county.

It's pandering, lying, mealy-mouthed motherfucker politicians, willing to say and do ANYTHING, to ANYONE, to gain and maintain the power to pick our collective pockets, increase their own personal wealth, provide 'wealth-building' opportunities to however many, select individuals who can assist them in maintaining their influence and authority, so they can continue to increase their own personal wealth, ad nauseum, all wealth being extorted from the citizens at large.

Don't fool yourselves into thinking these thieving fuckers-of-mothers have any other philosophy than 'where's mine'.

Clever they are.

Liberal, or Conservative, they are not.

Any more than a common thief is 'liberal' or 'conservative'.

Try leaving out all thoughts and references to actual political concepts, when referring to the many pickpockets infesting our city and county governments, the shits robbing us blind have never had a single principled thought, unless one considers GREED to be a principle.

it will only get worse, do the best we can to not think like a sheep. remember the day we swore we would do a job, its not a job when you go home and shut it off. we are the police and weather you like it or not you are the police 24/7. doesn't mean you have to do street stops off duty but you keep that extra eye out when your out shopping with the family and all the other sheep are out with theirs as well. or the time you see the state trooper on the e-way on a stop and you check to make sure he isn't rolling around on the floor with a bad guy. how many cops you see these days walking into their store sending a text or on the cell phone and could be walking to their death. take care of eachother always know where your at. and don't be a sheep as i once heard.

I said & posted it here before, and I'll say it again - a dead cop is a wet dream for the cowardly political types along with the media whores.
They write stories about it with their fixation on the dress funeral in the rain [seems like always...], not on the sacrifice of the man or woman in blue. Bosses show up at the wake of the officer whom they probably wouldn't have even spoken to passing in a hallway while alive. Politicians make speaches, in which they speak of honor and sense of duty - subjects they have no knowledge of.

Stay safe - don't give 'em the pleasure...

So then what you're saying is the the police don't exist to protect the community (not individuals), but each other?

I'm thinking that's going to be a tough sell to the taxpayers, even Chicago taxpayers...

I have never been an advocate of not doing nothing. I took pride in being a good law enforcement officer and enjoyed being one up on the bad guys. That being said if guys and gals decide to do nothing, I would not blame them in the least. We get slammed if we do and slammed when we don't, so don't. And truthfully I don't think anybody (public and media alike) want us to do anything. Let the animals win and we will protect our own.

Open season on the police? where the hell did you grow up. What did you think would happen when you came on the job? That you would be welcomed with open arms? You must be from the burbs. What happens to people who really need the police is mostly evil. Being that you are part of the occurance you are part of that evil even though your actions are for the good.

Nobody likes the police because every time they see you something is wrong. Just do your job and stop crying in your beer.

We've been lucky in Chicago. Last year "WE" did not suffer a line-of-duty death. And so far this year we are again fortunate.
However, Illinois and elsewhere have suffered considerable losses.
THIS is why I ask all of you to seriously consider attending the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial ceremony(ies) next May 13-15in Washington DC where we honor ALL our brothers and sisters in blue that made the Ultimate Sacrifice.
Check out...."NLEOMF" on any search engine for details, then join OVER 250 "CHICAGO" 'Real Police' members that attend every year to do the 'right thing.'
Thanks to all, stay safe and "Remember Our Thin Blue Line!"

As I've said B-4, be safe out there, take your time when possible, assess the situations you encounter, and call for assistance, backup; etc; WHENEVER you get that feeling, you know that FEELING, that somethings not right. Don't worry about how long it takes, call for canines, heavy weapons, etc. Be careful about being out-numbered, even by one or 2. You and your partner only have one set of eyes each, and can only watch a few things safely, at a time, especially someones hands. Remember HANDS KILL..ALWAYS watch what the hands are doing. Stay alive and be safe always. Do things safely or don't do em at ALL. Be safe and careful, brothers and sisters.

Another point: there are as many or more Officers killed in car accidents as to violence. Buckle up, and respond carefully.

Be safe, go home after the tour.

And I second the notion about the Washington Memorial. I went for the first time this year and it was sad and great. All those uniforms lined up for the families to walk by. Chilling. Good fun too. Police fraternity at it's finest. Give it a try.

Bye Bye Ginger Ru-Gai!!!
A Lot OF CPD bosses that live in your ward got promoted I can name at least two in 005, and two in 022 and one in 006 that got your promotional blessings-on multiple occasions. The campaign contribution website info helped-thanks Open Book. gov!
And these bosses ain't the sharpest knives in the drawer either!
I hope the would be new 022 commander/current captain in 005 is playing close attention.

true media story

once upon a time I and a bunch of other coppers worked security for ABC/Channel 7. there was a negative story about cops in the news and Charles Thomas & Cheryl Burton, those fucking police hating cocksuckers jumped all over that shit & got 2 or 3 days of TV facetime bashing coppers. just a few days later PO John Knight was killed by some shitbag parolee with a laser sighted gun. these fucks had the nerve to approach the coppers and say "oooh, what a terrible thing huh, did you know John, he has young kids right, can any of you get us an interview with his family"

One OLD SCHOOL veteran copper told them right where to go...straight to fucking hell!

Whomever is attempting to post about the Huntsville, Alabama copper killed in the line of duty, the article you quote doesn't say anything about Shipp legally owning the handgun he shot. In fact, nothing we found on the web suggests Shipp ever legally owned a gun.

To advance anti-gun arguments over the bodies of dead cops is in overly poor taste. Legal gun owners have statistically infinitesimal run ins with the police.
