Great Story

  • The man is accused of walking into the muffler shop just before 9 a.m. Monday brandishing a gun and demanding money. There was no money, a worker said. A manager, who was not at the shop, was the only one with information about how to get in to the safe.

    But the gunman gave workers a request before he left. He left them his cell phone number and wanted workers to call him once the manager arrived so the safe could be unlocked.

    The workers, instead, dialed 911.

    "No one could make this up," said Grand Central District police Lt. Scott Schwieger.

    By noon, a plan had been mapped out to nab the suspect. He got the call he requested, but Grand Central District police tactical officers, who typically work in plainclothes, were waiting for his arrival.

    When the man walked into the muffler shop and showed his gun, a tactical officer announced he was a police officer, Schwieger said.

    According to police accounts, the suspect pointed a gun at the officer, and the officer fired twice, with one bullet hitting the suspect's leg. The suspect's gun did not discharge and no one else was injured.

Nice one.

OT (but important): Was working special today and was killing some time around 1700hrs. Over CW 1 came a call from an 18th district unit who was apparently assigned to observe closed circuit TV cameras monitoring the city's water filtration plant. The unit was requesting marine support, as a small watercraft (bigger than a PWC but smaller than a boat usual in the waters this time of year) was close to the filtration plant and was observed taking pictures from what was described as a rather large, sophisticated camera.

The observers were calling for a marine unit as the craft had began to immediately flea from the plant southbound in the water at a high rate of speed.

We caught a visual of the craft near mccormmick place and it was indeed hauling ass! The requesting unit stayed on the air until it lost sight of it on its CCTV feed. AND THAT WAS IT! Once they said they couldnt see it, dispatch on CW 1 just let it go.

We followed as best we could, hoping it would dock at one of the many harbors along the way, but this orange colored craft was hugging the shore and was pulling away from us at a significant rate. No marine unit, no air 1, no coast guard.

Here we are, a special employment unit, and we were giving "chase" to a potential terrorist (who knows) if for nothing else the piece of mind that SOMEONE would engage this individual and inquire why, in gods name, would anyone be taking photography of the 3rd largest city (not 2nd) in Americas water delivery system! But, no, in (reading this any bosses) TYPICAL CPD FASHION NOTHING WAS DONE! WHAT THE FUCK!? When the KMAs lost sight (to no fault of theirs, they did their job) it was over... as if it never happened. But it DID happen. Someone WAS taking pictures of our water filtration... no marine unit, no air 1.

So we have these cameras WATCHING the filtration plant, we just dont have any plans to ACT if anything happens or needs attention. WHO ARE THESE COMMANDERS? I would guess this would fall onto the lap of the 1st and/or 18th districts. Seems like when (not if) shit hits the fan, this city of ours is seriously FUCKED!

Something is coming, be prepared as individuals, as this city isnt prepared AT ALL!

Some jurisdictions across the U.S. have been arming rank-and-file officers with high-powered assault rifles for a decade or more. But law enforcement officials say that trend has accelerated in the last year because of greater numbers of shootouts, standoffs in which police were outgunned, rising officer deaths and mass shootings of civilians by heavily armed gunmen.

"If you get into a fire fight, you want to be the winner," said Scott Knight, police chief of Chaska, Minn., and chairman of the firearms committee for the International Association of Chiefs of Police. "Our departments are moving to those weapons out of necessity across the country."

SCC,

This is off topic but I think your readers should hear about this shit judge in Bridgeview, Victoria Stewart, who thinks it is okay to spit in the face of a police officer. With elections coming in the fall, this piece of work, if up for retention, should be voted out.

First, the case happened in 024, but was sent to Brideview. Yes, 024to Bridgeview. (Do you think there was discussion in the chief judges office to discourage officers from persuing felony battery to police?)
This judge could have sent it to Skokie or 26th but decided to keep it.

Second the judge told the state in conference, she would only find him guilty of a misdemeanor. WTF

Finally, she found for the defense after the PO was tripped by counsel over a little matter of the date. (lawyers, save your BS comments, he was guilty)

This broad, Victoria Stewart, has to go. If you see her name on the ballet, vote NO. She reminded me of letem go Leo Holt for those that remember him.

--------------TRAGEDY--------------

I returned from Mexico last night and was informed that Sgt. Tony DeLeonardis aka "Tony D" had been dumped.

Tony is the hardest working and most knowledgable sergeant in the Detective Division. He has over twenty years experience in investigative units as a sergeant and produced for whomever was the boss.

It is a travesty to send him to the 6th District and I would not doubt that he retires as a result. That would be a great loss to the Department and the citizens.

I do hope that whoever is responsible reconsider this decision.

Officer Safety:

CNN is running a story about guns being sold to kill cops.

A company based in Belgium called Fabrique National makes a HANDGUN (the Five-Seven) that fires 21 rounds of 5.7 x 28mm NATO.

This handgun is sold in the US and it's rifle rounds WILL penetrate body armor up to Level IIIA.
0That is pretty much all bullet-resistant vests, unless you have Level IV trauma plates that stop rifle rounds.

I believe this handgun was used in a drive-by in Bronzeville last summer.

These guns are out there people, might be time to think of getting some Level IV plates for your vest!

Some entries would be serious, like the NYCPD type, with dark shirts and pants, Some not so serious, like the dress uniform of the Carbinari Di Roma with tricorn hat with black feathered cockcade.

We coud get the uniform of the Swiss Guards for for Richie's household protectors.

---

Anyone who wants to hit the filtration plant has the information already. Who do think works there? Rocket scientists? They are all political hack city workers.

Anyone care to guess who used to be a big boss there?
Why it was former Chicago Water Department boss and 11th Ward political powerhouse Donald Tomczak.

Why would any terrorists have to go there in a boat and take pictures? They can get all the aerial photos they need from Google Earth. There is enough stored chlorine there at Jardine to kill most of the population of the City if vented and dispersed properly.

Anyone care to guess where the largest uncontrolled venting of water plant chlorine occurred? If you said the Jardine Filtration plant you would be right. That was in 1999 I think and was just a small fire away from a huge catastrophe.

That boat the officers saw probably was a US Coast Guard boat, they use orange colored fast boats and are in that area a lot.

If it was something and it wasn't cloudy out the DOD probably has sat images of it.

OFF TOPIC:

In reference to the "boat near the filtration plant incident" I too have a story to share.

Yesterday 3/25/08 @ approximately 0715-0730 hours, I was on the Metra train inbound toward Lasalle street station. We had just left Brainard St station. The train runs east-west parallel to and just south of 89th st. We were approaching morgan street, were the train begins a slow left turn northbound. As we were crossing over the old trestle bridge that spans morgan I looked out the window (upper deck) to my right and saw a guy standing next to a mini-van that was parked off morgan in the alley, near a large open field filming the train and tracks with a very large commercial type video camera like cltv or abc would use.

I would have reported it but didn't have my cellphone with me.

If a train were to derail there as it was rounding that corner it would roll down the embankment and come to rest along side Vincennes. VERY SCARY INDEED!

Then again, it could just be one of those railroad hobby, geek types, just filming for the fun of it.

I figured that if I saw it, the engineer surely must have & notified metra police.

Let's not become complacent.

Moreover, he was involved in a running gun battle at the Bud Billiken Parade many years ago where his partner was disarmed by an offender. Scott chased the armed offender through the crowd land all three of his shots into the offender while on the run.

Weis also said, as he has in the past, that he remains committed to putting more officers on the street. He said that the department has created many specialized teams at the cost of having street cops and that he is "somewhat shocked" with the number of officers at roll calls.

"We’ve taken a lot of people off of patrol with the specialized units," he said. "And I’m not saying that was a bad idea. ... The life blood of the department are the beat officers."

Hey, you too. I also ask SCC for a break on postings for those money hungry airport fools on another thread.
Somebody then started calling me Boffo.
What kind of stupid name is that. I have a fine scottish name but you won't see it here.

I still can't understand why anybody would take the name of a decent irish man like lt. carrol.

He did his time at the airport and he screwed up. It could happen to anybody.

Now some PO who got kick off the tac team and into a district is lambasting lt. carol.

It was KK who messed up, not caroll.

So, please stop posting gossip and innuendo about the airports.

He was just a customer complaining... wanted to talk to a manager. He stated "I want my money" which was misunderstood as "give me the money". The overzealous police shot the poor man because he wanted a refund! That, my friend is how the lawsuit will read.

if the 018 unit was zoomed in enough to judge the sophistication of the camera they propbably would have made it as a cost guard vessel.

Hello Ford, send over 800 Escapes with those economy (hybrid=Green) engines.

Hello Glock, we need 15,000 right away! Make that 15,050, each alderman will need one.

What color boats do you think the coast guard has???? BRIGHT ORANGE HULLS!!!!, they are the only ones with orange. Get a clue
who else would have a boat out this time of year????? The USCG is also in charge of Homeland Security, they check all of the filtration plants just like the Marine Unit. Why do you think no one responded?????

3/26/2008 03:03:00 PM

well that would be a fine ending to the story, however, coast guard was contacted and it wasnt them... they dont even have vessels in the water yet! Besides, Im sure the coast guard has enough pictures of the filtration plant... and if they were taking pictures of CHICAGO's filtration plant certainly they would have enough sense to contact CPD and let them know. It wasnt coast guard. But keep being camplacent.

According to police accounts, the suspect pointed a gun at the officer, and the officer fired twice, with one bullet hitting the suspect's leg. The suspect's gun did not discharge and no one else was injured.

Very good place to derail a train....load it with some tankers first!!!
__________________________________

In reference to the "boat near the filtration plant incident" I too have a story to share.

Yesterday 3/25/08 @ approximately 0715-0730 hours, I was on the Metra train inbound toward Lasalle street station. We had just left Brainard St station. The train runs east-west parallel to and just south of 89th st. We were approaching morgan street, were the train begins a slow left turn northbound. As we were crossing over the old trestle bridge that spans morgan I looked out the window (upper deck) to my right and saw a guy standing next to a mini-van that was parked off morgan in the alley, near a large open field filming the train and tracks with a very large commercial type video camera like cltv or abc would use.

I would have reported it but didn't have my cellphone with me.

If a train were to derail there as it was rounding that corner it would roll down the embankment and come to rest along side Vincennes. VERY SCARY INDEED!

Then again, it could just be one of those railroad hobby, geek types, just filming for the fun of it.

I figured that if I saw it, the engineer surely must have & notified metra police.

Let's not become complacent.

3/26/2008 09:16:00 PM

Look at all units. There are numerous officers working in spots they are budgeted for civilians. Why have a officer doing the job of a civilian? Officers as time keepers, typing memos, secretaries? Even officers operating copy machines? Amazing!

11:05 pm RE: Tony D.

You are an individual in need of mental health intervention.

But then you are an individual who allowed investigations to be conducted of those who obtained positions that you desired. Even though those investigations had no basis in fact and when you knew that your investigators were biased you looked the other way as you allowed the reputations of the targeted individuals to be unfairly attacked and their careers to be damaged.

You have no personal integrity!

You have trashed the reputations of others and when a Federal Court Jury had to make a decision they realized that you were wrong and said so.

You owe many people an apology but then you live in a world that you believe you are always right and no one else is.

Tony D was the police officer that you could never be.

I work in 021 and saw that orange boat also and they were filming a job from the water that the Marine unit was tied up on for 3 hours. Two people walking along the Lake at 5400 South found a body sticking partially out of the water and she was wedged under a huge rock. The Fire Dept. had to use the jaws of life to remove the rock so the Marine Unit could get the body out. It was really something to see and a great job by all involved!

SCC,

This is off topic but I think your readers should hear about this shit judge in Bridgeview, Victoria Stewart, who thinks it is okay to spit in the face of a police officer. With elections coming in the fall, this piece of work, if up for retention, should be voted out.

First, the case happened in 024, but was sent to Brideview. Yes, 024to Bridgeview. (Do you think there was discussion in the chief judges office to discourage officers from persuing felony battery to police?)
This judge could have sent it to Skokie or 26th but decided to keep it.

Second the judge told the state in conference, she would only find him guilty of a misdemeanor. WTF

Finally, she found for the defense after the PO was tripped by counsel over a little matter of the date. (lawyers, save your BS comments, he was guilty)

This broad, Victoria Stewart, has to go. If you see her name on the ballet, vote NO. She reminded me of letem go Leo Holt for those that remember him.

3/26/2008 10:46:00 AM

I have a better alternative, how about you and both of your years of service remain on the north side!! Judge Stewart is pro police, but then you would know that if you were in felony court more than once a year. Next time don't show up in court with a bullshit case and you won't act like a baby when it gets tossed!
