More Good News

Gee, anyone else think the media feels bad for piling on the police lately? We didn't think so. So what's with the outpouring of good police stories over the past few days? Suddenly the clouds are opening up and the sun is shining. In 011 on Tuesday:
  • No students were injured when Harrison Area detectives caught an armed robbery suspect who fled into a West Side elementary school Tuesday.

    Detectives were in pursuit of the male suspect in the 200 block of North Keeler Avenue just before noon, according to police News Affairs Officer Marcel Bright.

    The suspect fled into Tilton Elementary School, 223 N. Keeler Ave., but detectives were right behind and caught him immediately, Bright said.

Preliminary reports are that this guy was wanted for a large number of stick ups. A gun was recovered, no one hurt too badly, students safe and more good publicity for the CPD.

Keep up the good work people. We're trying to keep some positive stuff at the top of everyone's minds.

Favorite memory in 011 from area of Keeler and Washington Blvd.

Juvenile strong-armed robber was starting a pattern on the beat. The strapping moron always wore a football jersey with number "44" on it.

Can't tell the "players" without a scorecard! Like shootin' fish in a barrel. One in custody for five robberies.

Just glanced at the Scum-times this morning... Saw the one of the "Front Runners" for the soup job will pull out if his name is released. Take your marbles and run home to mom huh? In 31 years of dragging a badge and gun down the street, I always noticed that when somebody doesn't want their name known, they're either a chicken-shit or not for real. Come to think of it, looking at this city and department leadership [?], this guy could be the perfect fit in Daleyland.

Actually it was a rapid response car from 011 that caught him, but we will take the positive press.

Rumor has it, Attorney Jon Loevy is preparing a lawsuit against the city and the police department on behalf of several of the 2nd grade class for causing them an upset stomach because of the trauma the incident caused. He is asking for 10 million dollars a piece for each student effected.

This arrest was the direct result of outstanding Police work! The 11th district along with A/4 Detectives were working a robbery pattern. A subject was observed (most likely about to employ his trade)and was apparently spooked. The offender drove off. Officers attempted to stop the Offender who fled. After a vehicle pursuit the offender fled on foot and ran into Tilton school. Within two minutes there were in excess of 60 officers on the scene, each playing a vital roll. The response included Area Four Gun / mission team, S.W.A.T. officers, K-9, Detectives, 10th and 11th district officers. Within minutes the school was secured and the offender was taken into custody. 11th district officers were able to locate and recover the offenders handgun.
The response and coordination shown by all who were on the scene showed the highest level of professionalism. Due to the dedication of all of the officers who played a part in this incident be it large or small ensured the safety of each other, the students and teachers of Tilton school and the arrest of a violent offender. I attempted to personally thank all of the officers who responded but I am sure many were missed. You have my Gratitude and respect. Thanks for a job well done.

That shouldn't have been that big of a problem. The school is mostly empty anyway.

Mope-rah even had nice things to say in her 22 Nov column:

"There are also things that we should be grateful for in our communities.

"For instance, while there's been plenty of disappointing police scandals in the city, the hardworking, compassionate, fair-minded people who go out every day and protect us from evil deserve our gratitude. I hear from these officers, black, white, male and female, even when I write articles that put the Chicago Police Department in an unflattering spotlight.

"These men and women don't make excuses for their fellow officers, but they remind me that not all officers are disgracing themselves and the City of Chicago by abusing citizens."

They used to sell "five star" blows on Maypole and Karlov (along with everything else). The average person...no, the average copper would not believe the dope on Maypole and Karlov ten years ago.

You'd get into one foot chase and seven more mother fuckers would start running because they thought the PO PO was chasing them.

OHHH..for the good old days. 26th Street, Branch 25, time due slips etc..
