Chicagoist Interview

We're taking a beating in some of the comments, but a slim majority seems to be supporting the police and what we're trying to accomplish here.

Read the whole thing here.

I was surprised with some of the independent thinking. It seemed as though most of the more common sense statements were pro police or at the very least empathetic to our cause.

Cracks me up when I see people complaining about us going through stop lights for what are "non-emergency situations". Maybe we should stop, run the situation by motorists and let them determine if it's an emergency.
And, where do they think we want to get to so bad? We're on the clock.
I'm not real good with money. So, I don't question an accountants methods.

people just don't understand our job. the tv show "cops" opened up some eyes and they have been at it over 20 years. the jail at 2650 s california is full and they didn't all go there quietly. police work is a violent job. most of my friends ask how i can do this job and then go home and hug the kids. scc, you hit it right on the head-- this job is a calling for many of us.

Great article SCC, and surprisingly moderate for a media interview. I would've expected more loaded questions, but it's apparent that he reads the blog and probably knows the answers already. Good job.

There was a time when I would enjoy to sit down with somebody who 'hates the police' or is 'anti-cop' and have a intelligent conversation with them about their issues but nowadays I would much rather just crack skulls.

Your interview was excellent, and I hope it wakes a few people up. I check out the Chicagoist regularly and they're not all as wacked out as some of the responses would indicate.

If some of those posters weren't so negative and anti police, I'm sure more people would post more positively. I'm betting a lot of people don't want to get attacked online by the haters. I posted in reference to one of them without addressing the person.

Trouble with the haters is that they're so busy hating they can't see clearly. Just having a that interview really pushes a hater's buttons, which are already set to blow at a moment's notice.

I made it my business to post something positive. Sometimes all it takes are a few people knock the wind out of the sails of the other type. -- TamaleChica

Damn,

Whomever the thug was relating that the police lack writing skills...??? What???

Obviously this egocentric fool hasn't had the opportunity to read various reports from the "D" units.

Beyond a doubt, some of the most eloquent and skillful writing ever produced comes from the CPD's most creative artists.

Most of the closers are truly works of art. (not all)

I am grateful and proud of your efforts and motives. The service that you do for the members and family of the Chicago Police Department are beyond measure. Thank you. I hope that you can go on for ever.

Good interview SCC! All the negative comments are from latte-sipping, turtle neck wearing liberal pukes; the only time these
quiche eaters ever made a fist in their sheltered brokeback lives was for self-gratification....

"anyone who is not a police officer has no idea what we actually have to deal with on a daily basis."

That's true. I knew it could be dangerous and brutal, and even though I knew cops before, until I dated one for awhile I never knew how much stuff you guys went through in service. Not just the daily in patrol, but the political parts, too.

People talk about the 'blue wall' but there's one like it, almost a "club" that happens with people who are married, girlfriends or boyfriends of cops as well. The "looks" and the "comments" you hear and get don't just effect you guys, they effect your loved ones, too.

People like me get another version of it, like when someone I just meet finds out my boyfriend of over a year is a cop. Sometimes it's that irritating judgement, other times it's finding out that they're pro cop. You always hear the knuckleheads out there, but there are a lot of people out there who respect all that POs do. Many of them just keep it to themselves and they don't make trouble.

I gotta admit, I'm a "liberal, latte sipping" hipster from Wicker Park. Hell, I even support Obama. So I might not be exactly "welcomed" by you all.

But I'm coming in to say hey from the Chicagoist boards and to say, I happen to like this blog, and I'm objective enough to know that cops, for the most part, are doing a pretty good job in this town.

Anyway, just throwing in my $0.02. Keep up the good work.

Doesn't anyone realize that a "Blue Wall" exists in every profession????

I am another latte-sipping, turtleneck-wearing person who leans toward the liberal side. As a volunteer at my local PD, I have a small understanding of what you all go through, and I deeply appreciate the things you do to keep us all safe. I live in a terrible neighborhood and I don't know what we would do without police protection...
