Congratulations Officers

  • Barring a burst of violent crime over the next few days, Chicago could finish the year with its fewest homicides since 1965.

    By Saturday evening, police had tallied 438 homicides. Chicago finished 2006 with 467 homicides, after 450 in 2005.

    This would be the fourth year in a row the city has seen fewer than 500 homicides, more or less a plateau after a decade-long decline.
Last year saw a slight up tick. This year, a little downturn. At least, according to how the stats are generated. Everyone deserves a pat on the back - even some of the units that take a beating here on the blog.

Be that as it may, we're still of the opinion that we've reached a plateau of sorts. Manpower at the district level is hideously low. Units like TRU and the DOC teams that are supposed to "flood" an area following a shooting to prevent retaliation do nothing to address the chronic crime problems that CAPS was invented to solve. As soon as this "extra" manpower leaves, the same problems reoccur. So much of what the "fast reaction" units are designed to prevent could be completely eradicated by increasing the manpower allotment in the Districts on a daily basis.

The NYPD is also falling to a record low for 2007 homicides.

They're are many variables to account for this. Generally, specific speculative sources will proffer explanations that forward their own agenda.

It would be interesting to compare clearance rates by locations.

SCC's right; congrats POs....

In spite of a worthless,whore backstabbing media; a liberal elite(yea right)that could care less about you; a ghetto segment that breeds/fosters some of the most violent criminals in the free world;a ruling political establishment that is dumber than dirt and more corrupt than a Sicilian social club; you've managed, with everything against you, to do a great job.
The populace of this city isn't worthy of you. For whats its worth,
from what Im seeing on the public access channels, the whore print media(times/trib)is dying a painful,ugly death;hopefully soon you'll see mope-rah working Belmont/Clark on midnites w/the regular gumps.
Having worked and retiring from a big city like Chicago,carries a lot of weight w/your neighbors once you retire to the "sticks"....

Off Topic....the following comment was on the "Payroll Screwups" thread:

"hopefully the pay check of the fat fuck liberal in 023 who thinks mumia is innocent will get lost, too!"

Is it actually possible that there is someone walking around in a police uniform who thinks that the piece of shit (Mumia) who murdered Officer Danny Faulkner of the Philly PD is innocent? Absofuckingluteyl unbelievable. Will someone from 23 who has knowledge of this please let us know? Mumia is the most guilty MF who ever walked the earth, and the fact that he is alive is a testament to our fucked up, liberal, listen to the media and movie star bullshit justice system. This case is reminiscent of that jagoff murderer who wrote "In the belly of the beast" and was paroled after Norman Mailer and a bunch of liberal hollywood types (Ed Asner) said that his "writing talents" and ability to "contribute to society" were being wasted while he was in prison. So he gets paroled, hits the celeb circuit and oh yea, kills a busboy in a restaurant because he didn't get his water served fast enough, or some such thing. Look it up. The fact is that this Mumia jagoff, who by the way turned to the Muslim name after being imprisoned, killed PO Faulkner in cold blood, in front of witnesses and was convicted, and re-convicted after that. He should have fried years ago.

Katey Kakes, if you are reading this please let our brothers and sisters on the PPD know that I know (as do many others) that PO Faulkner will be avenged, if not in this life, then in the next one.

I'll see you at Genos when the Cubs play the Phillies next summer.

-----------------------------------

So TRU, DOC teams etc pull out and do not repsond to these hot spots? Like the animals will not notice this? Shootings will skyrocket.

And yes the problems reoccur after the extra manpower leaves. Police cannot do anything about this. The only way to stop that is for the inner-city society to change on whole.

You think by adding more PO's to beat cars, this will slow down violent crime? Wrong. The only thing that will slown down violent crime is when the minority communities decide they actually want to.

Until then, the police just try to stick our fingers in the dykes.

Yes, Sgt. you are quite correct. You also must understand that you are speaking about a Marxist icon here. The Black Panther Party's leaders passionately espoused a radical Socialist doctrine. Make no mistake, we are talking about bona-fide Communists...in Hollywood, the Academic establishment and in the Democratic party.

The greatest Evil ever visited upon the human race: Communism. In less than 100 years, Communism claimed more than 100 million lives.

These are the true believers. They shed no tears for the other 99,999,999 victims of Communism, therefore one more person's death (police officer or not) isn't going to bother them any

We must confront this Evil and defeat it. Vote Republican in 2008!

The simple reason there is such a dramatic reduction in homicides in Chicago is due primarily to the exportation of big city crime into the suburbs via subsidized housing. There is an increase in crime, including homicides, in the areas adjacent to Chicago. These areas now have Black Souls, MLD'S, and former Westside residents such as Tyrese shaking the life out of his girlfriends six-month-old.

Phil "May I hold Your Coat Mr. Hanhardt" Cline's strategies had little to do with any reduction in homicide. The population in Chicago is shrinking, whites are not moving back in as the politicians would have you beleive, and if you excise the few remaining white areas out of the map the remaining areas, all black and Hispanic, would show a per capita murder rate that is the highest in the nation. But at least they made me a Sergeant!!!!

The only way to cure the man-power shortage is to go to a 2 watch system...yes 12 hour days..every car would be two man....2 on 3 off...3 on 3 off...something like that. Rotate every 4 months..you'd go from working 260 days a year to around 180. I worked the 10 hour rapids in '05 and heard all the non-sense of how hard and long it is but you get to actually enjoy your 3 and 4 days off between work. It made work more enjoyable overall. One problem the dept might have lack of cars....you'd have 30+ cars for each watch plus all the tact/gang/06 cars. Thats 10+ cars per sector, we'd be tripping over each other...but it would make it safer and response times would shrink. Anything to get rid of that 6th workday....that does more harm than working 4 extra hours 2 or 3 times a week.

QUESTION:
1) What brilliant female white shirt on the 2nd watch in 019 left her gun in the glovebox of a marked squad car, and then totally forgets about it?
2) What was her weapon doing in the glovebox to begin with?
3) Why wasn't it on her person?
4) Why wasn't a CR number initiated for not securing a weapon properly?

HINT: She loves to file suits against the Department so she could get promoted. She always uses the excuse that she has a kid at home, so it's mandatory that she works days. She harasses women to the point that they have to bid out to other districts. And she loves to flirt with Hispanic men. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, she made it on her own.

ANSWER KEY:
1) Capt. De
2) Only God knows.
3) It was too cumbersome.
4) Because she's a boss.

He is absolutely guilty and it is fucking sick and twisted that the LibTards are fawning all over him. He even has his own radio show over at www.prisonradio.com.

While the CPD is doing a tremendous job, I feel that the main reason for the drop in homicides is the fact that medical treatments have advanced and are saving people who even 5 years ago would have died. The animal is still the animal.

SCC you are full of "it."

Police are not responsible when homicides go up; therefore, police cannot take credit when they go down.

A person does not forgo shooting someone because he thinks the police might be nearby.

The first reason that homicides have declined is because large numbers of would be homicide offenders have been moved out of town by CHA teardowns, vouchers, etc...

The second reason is because of the superior medical care in 2007 as compared to 2000 or 1990 or 1965. Less people who are shot end up dead.

The final reason that homicides are down is because of longer sentences. Criminals have been racking up more and more narcotics arrest over the past ten years and their sentences have gone from probation to 5-10 years and in some cases even longer. For that matter, armed robbers, rapists, and murderers get longer sentences today than they did in 1965.

New York has had a much better crime reduction rate than we have. In a city with almost three times the population that Chicago has, their reduction in murders has been much greater. Maybe it is because they hold their exempt bosses accountable, and demote them when they don't make the grade, unlike here where they get laterally moved to better spots, allowed to retire, or kicked upstairs to do nothing ADS or Deputy Chief jobs.

A correction is necessary SCC, the offical 2006 stats are 471, allow me to explain, a small number of homicides are calculated into the year after our honorable Officers investigate the M.E.'s findings concerning death investigations. Additionally, before the Sherlocks of the Dept. share their two cents if a person is shot in 07 but dies in 08 it will be counted when the person died.

Federal Judge William Yohn over-turned Wesley Cook's (Mumia Abu-Jamal) sentence in 2001. He confirmed the jurys guilty verdict, but said the jury didn't understand the sentencing instructions. This is now under appeal. This is absolute BULLSHIT. Once again a Judge(lawyer in a black robe) makes a decision based on MEDIA hype. This is truely a travesty of justice for Daniel Faulkner's family, Law Enforcement, and law abiding society.

Don't forget we have our own Cop killer supporters right here.

According to a Oct. 27, 2003 Sun-Times article several politicians appealed for Ronnie (Mad Dog) Carrasquillo's release to the Prisoner Review Board. This gang leader killed Officer Terrence Loftus on Oct. 10,1976. Carrasquillo was sentenced to 200-600 years in prison.
His supporters, according to the Sun-Times, include Luis Gutierrez(D-ILL), state Rep.William Delgado(D-Chgo), Cynthia Soto (D-Chgo), Ald. Billy Ocasio (D-26th)and Cook County Board Commissioner Roberto Maldonado (Dumbocrat).

Remember these scumbags. They are not friends of law enforcement. They want a gangbanger back out on the streets. They don't give a shit about our sacrifice or law abiding citizens.

It does not suprise me that some CPD members would believe Wesley Cook is innocent. It is disgusting none the less.

P.T. Barnum said their was a sucker born every minute.

For all you, "coppers cops" just remember who our friends really are.

Asshat, the murder rate in suburban Cook County has held absolutely constant at about 100/year for the last 5 years, as the city rate went into a downward spiral.

The only explanation for anyone writing idiocy like yours is that they're a disgusting racist.

I mean, at least try to find a racist theory that actually follows the facts!!

As I said to the last guy, if you're one of those old men with a 70's attitude "we can't do nuttin' about it," resign and get the hell out of the way. One problem with this city doesn't need is ignorant cops like you.

From a former det. supervisor...let's educate: CPD counts only murders, code 0110. They don't count cases of vehicular homicide, manslaughter, etc. If a case is classified that way, it's not a murder. And by the way...rumor is Area3 is pushing for the female in Lncoln Park, a doctor no less, committing suicide by stabbing herself in the chess. Did someone earlier mention creative writing?

Look at districts like 002, 012, 014, and 018. All of them used to easily get 25+ homicides a year. The projects are gone in 002, 012, and 018. And hipsters made it fashionable to live in 014 making the yuppies interested in building and moving there. 014 had 16 homicides in 2006 and I think they're down to only 6 or 7 this year. That is a dramatic reduction!

It has very little to do with us and has everything to do with gentrification. Those that don't think there is a trend of reverse white flight you're sadly mistaken. They're coming back.

Medical advances? If you saw the details for agg batts w firearms you would see that most are GSWs to legs and ass. So medical advances are not saving them, their injuries are not life threatening. I believe that the dissolving of public housing is a key factor. Just look at New Orleans and what it's impact has been on Houston's crime rate with the relocation of New Orlean's criminals to Texas.

This is due to the great work of the TRU officers. We will be doing even more next year warrant missons, parole checks and a seat belt missions. Without us crime would be much higher. We are even going to get a ribbon for the work we have done this year.

Shut up dickhead, you aren't from TRU, enough already....

HEY DICKHEAD...not everyone that bids to 016 is there to retire. There are plenty of people that are sick of cleaning up the messes on the west side and want to help protect the homefront. Lemme guess...you are the best of the best and think that you can do no wrong ? Come to 016 and find a few burglars and robbers...show us how it's done. My 10 year old could find dope on the westside, so you are not the superstar that you think. At least I would respect you a little if you said that you work the westside to make numerous dope pinches and be in court a few days a week for the money or time. Then you would be honest. Otherwise, come to 016 and help with the cause or shut-the-fuck-up douchebag !!!!!

12/30/2007 04:58:00 PM


You are right. There are some working coppers in 016. They work when they write parking tickets to others officer's. Then they run and hide to avoid facing the officer to answer questions about the pimpy parking ticket. Sorry, I've known too too many dogs on the job who bid to 016 to "retire".
I wish there were a few guys there who actually handled there jobs and made an arrest when necessary.
We wouldn't have west side gangbangers hanging around our parks if someone in 016 would get off their lazy ass and do a little police work. When my partner had west side jagoffs hanging out in the school yard across from his house his brother (who was at his house) called 911 to report it. We were working and switched over to zone-1 to monitor the job. The call was dispatched, soon after the assigned car came clear with a big 19-p. But guess what, they never showed up at the job. The little jerk's were still there. Great work! Keep it up Jackass your doing a fine job up there.

Hey Dickwad,

Anyone who calls it like as it is is a "racist"? You must be a Chicago Public School teacher, or a nun from St. Gregory's!

They are the problem. They have destroyed neighborhoods and cities since time in memoriem and subsidized housing is spreading their carnage as far away as quaint Evansville, WI and Carmel, IN. And violent crime has doubled in areas such as Aurora, Rolling Meadows, Des Plaines, and Chicago Heights.

Oh, and it isn't the Polish bricklayer, Romanian floor re-finisher, or Filipino X-ray technician responsible for these crimes. It's those from the other racial and ethnic groups that continue to suck the economy dry with the welfare and housing benefits they recieve (that ensures their continued unswerving allegience to the Democrats!). And I'll not leaave so soon-they'll make me a Lt. in two more classes!!!

The small riot you are referring to happened at 76 and racine. It always starts there and branches out for a couple blocks.
It should not be newsworthy because the place goes up for grabs about 3-5 times a year.
Usually, the parents of the kids that are there are the instigators.

Nice rumor, to bad there is a federal law that mandates that a certain number of promotions have to be made off each promotion list. I am not sure the exact number, but I am pretty sure that it is more than 35 and less than 500. The city can still drop a list, as we know they seem to do whatever they want no matter what law is out there, but they would get sued, lose, and than have to promote off the old list and pay back pay as well.
Also, do you really think the city will throw a million dollars more in to another test, no they won't.

How about reining in all the new free cars given out to the clouted? How about cars with mileage below 200K? How about a repair division that is actually able to fix vehicles?
