Cops OK, Bystander Hurt?

Our money would be on the goof with the AK-47:
  • A 35-year-old man was hospitalized Friday evening after being shot just blocks from a police-involved shooting on the South Side. A man was shot in the 11300 block of South Emerald Avenue before 7 p.m., according to police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli. As responding officers investigated the shooting, shots were fired at the police in the 11000 block of South Union Avenue, Mirabelli said. No officers were injured. Officers recovered an AK-47 assault rifle from the Union Avenue address, Mirabelli said. A 35-year-old man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in "trauma" condition from the Emerald Avenue address, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Joe Roccasalva said. It was not clear whether the man was shot by police or another individual.
Shot just blocks away? Our ammo can barely make it to the end of the block, even with a decent tailwind. And when it gets there, it's isn't about to do any damage.

UPDATE: This is what the front end of the unmarked Corwn Vic looked like. Think you'll see this pic in the media?

Thank god no coppers got killed.

SCC,

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO ADDRESS THE HOMEFRONT TURNING INTO ONE BIG GHETTO????

016 already has two homicides for the year and it is only April.

016 has more homicides than 1/3 of the CPD's districts.

016 has more homicides than 001,013,014,018,019,020,021 and 023

016 has and continues to turn into a ghetto,just like 008.

This is where 5,400 Chicago coppers reside plus countless county,state and suburban coppers and city workers.

Something needs to be done,I refuse to live in a ghetto and pay incrementally outlandish proerty taxes that keep going up.

Ofcr: Once.

Det. Why? It's the same amount of paper if you fire one or several, make it count!

Many moons ago in the good old days of rotating/watch parties I had occasion to shoot Pookie's Bit Bull with our Department issue .38 BS ammo.

The first 2 shots just seemed to piss the puppy off! Thank goodness my partners joined in the fun. The first shot just seemed to bounce off his head.

I was out there this evening and was on the scene when this guy was placed in custody. The 35 year old was shot at 714 west on 115th street. 022nd district tact guys spotted a man who fit the description of the offender from the shooting on 115th street. The guy bailed out of his vehicle and opened fire from the ak47 spraying the front windshield of the vehicle and officers returned fire without hitting him. The guy attempted to ditch the weapon but was caught after a brief footchase. Later on in the evening, the man who was originally shot on 115th street was pronounced dead at Christ. Those officers were truly blessed because from the looks of that windshield.... its hard to imagine them not being hit.

1. Unless that "AK47" had THREE positions on the safety/selector lever, it's NOT an "assault rifle". Nothing that won't go full-auto or burst is or CAN be.

2. Any handgun cartridge EVER used by the Chicago PD will go a hell of a lot longer than a block. Just ask the PO in another state who decided to shoot a snake out of a tree and killed a little boy close to a mile away. She didn't know guns or possess minimal common sense and now a kid's dead and she'll probably never own anything of consequence for as long as she lives.

Don't criticize Daley's bullshit propaganda then repeat it without correction. If nothing else, don't encourage some dummy to do something with a gun that might get somebody other than himself killed.

I actually think the POs did a great job but Jodi and the Mayor have made a decision to not provide POs with anywhere near enough fire power to confront a AK47.
Are we expendable in the interest of political correctness?
Jodi should pay for the training and the M4s for every PO. He should do it now before a Officer losses his life.

I am just sipping my coffee and reading the Saturday Tribune. Eleven letter writers griping about the police shooting of that "majestic creature." (the cougar)What bullshit!

One asshole talks about being ashamed to say he was a Chicago resident for 25 years, because of our conduct.

I too am ashamed. For having to protect and serve dipshits like this on a daily basis!

All the letters are of the "why couldn't we taze it or tranqualize it" variety.

I wish they could see that youtube video of some asswipe on an african safari, that leaves the RangeRover for 30 seconds to get a closer camera shot of one of these majestic creatures. The last laugh of this morons life was to look back at his wife and kids and make a funny face. The majestic creature pounced and dragged him off and consumed him as his wife, kids, and other horrified "eco tourists" looked on while screaming.

I knew what was about to unfold as I watched, and laughed my ass off. Its natures way of thinning the gene pool!

These losers need to get a life. Anyone who has time to write a letter to the editor has to much idle time on their hands!

To the person who doesn't know anything about guns that believes our will will go farther than a block and used the snake in a tree example. It's called trajectory! If you are aiming directly at someone, the round will not go a block. It will hit the ground first. You have to compensate and aim higher to hit the target, about 3' high with a .9mm, 4' high with a .45 So unless the cops were aiming 3' over the offenders head, it will not hit a person a block away. A city block, (1800 west to 1900 west) is slightly over 200 yds.

1. Unless that "AK47" had THREE positions on the safety/selector lever, it's NOT an "assault rifle". Nothing that won't go full-auto or burst is or CAN be.


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

First, a definition:

" Assault rifle
Function: noun
Date: 1972
: any of various automatic or semiautomatic rifles with large capacity magazines designed for military use "

That is out of the Merriam Webster dictionary and it says nothing about having a selector switch that goes to full auto. The AK 47 was designed for military use. Not in itself a bad thing as we all know that the military uses guns (duh) and the AK is an excellent weapon.

Also, look up the word "Hyperbole" while you're at it. Its a deliberate exagerration to get a point across. Im sure the officer was saying our rounds dont go further than a block to make a point that we are out-gunned.

Daley is full of shit and any common logic will tell you that law breakers (including violent criminals) will ignore any such gun restricting laws, just as they ignore laws against robbing, and raping, and selling dope. The only people that will be affected by stricter gun laws are law abiding citizens and we will essentially be turning them into victims that cannot defend themselves.

"think you'll see this picture in the media?"

jaysus christ, SCC, quit your bitching, already! you got a department that at this point in time doesn't tell the media sh*t when it comes to these things!

yeah, i know you hate the media and they do bad things to the cops and all that, but this is where is would have been nice to have old suntan man on the scene, telling everybody what happened and what mortal danger the officers were in and just how damned serious this was, instead of the morons at IPRA saying stuff like, 'an ak-47 was recovered at the scene...shots were fired...i can't say...that is under investigation," etc, etc.

you love it when the IPRA and snooze affairs are tight-lipped when the 'honor students' get shot, but when your own guys are in danger and have some lunatic opening fire on them with an AK, and they say the same bunch of nothing, then it's different, eh?

I respect the hell out of the men and women who put their lives on the line for the citizens every single day, but you gotta realize how your department blocks access to information and makes it a damned obstacle course for anyone in the media who wants the real story to get that real story. They're not protecting you with these policies -- you gotta wondering who they are trying to protect.

SCC,

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO ADDRESS THE HOMEFRONT TURNING INTO ONE BIG GHETTO????

016 already has two homicides for the year and it is only April.

016 has more homicides than 1/3 of the CPD's districts.

016 has more homicides than 001,013,014,018,019,020,021 and 023

016 has and continues to turn into a ghetto,just like 008.

This is where 5,400 Chicago coppers reside plus countless county,state and suburban coppers and city workers.

Something needs to be done,I refuse to live in a ghetto and pay incrementally outlandish proerty taxes that keep going up.
---------------------------------
Not to worry..Captain Lenti has three 06 cars to pull event#'s tonight..This will put a stop to all the crime in 16 for sure..maybe not since the cars leave 2 hours early every night..Thanks Captain for leaving 4 cars 99 so you can take care of your bullshit event #'s!!!!!

I wouldn't want to try to explain to the media, after the fact, why Chicago Police were powerless to stop some nut with a rifle as he went on killing people.

you need to call Capt lenti into your office and have a one on one with him.
you will see when this mope opens his mouth he is a merit all the way and needs to be stopped right now.
you put up three 06 cars and leave others 99 it is a disaster waiting to happen.
and talk to him about killing crime, when someone breaks the glass to a business or vehicle and the place has been tossed around that is a burglary not a criminal damage to property, when someone goes to a parking lot or on a street and stabs tires on cars that is one crime for each victim. The hotel/motel rule doesn't come into play. sorry to say the new commander isn't going to do anything because he is afraid of being called a asshole.

"The only people that will be affected by stricter gun laws are law abiding citizens and we will essentially be turning them into victims that cannot defend themselves.

4/19/2008 03:30:00 PM"


"We" have already turned "ourselves" into "victims", as evidenced by the majority of cock-sucking, ass-licking pieces of shit who "we've" allowed to be elected as our Executive, Legislative and Judicial "public servants".

The results being that "we", the majority of "law-abiding" citizen/taxpayers, are amply dumb enough to obey the laws that the aforementioned cock-suckers and ass-lickers have imposed upon us, something that the minority of "citizens" commonly referred to as "criminals" are not quite as dumb as "we" are to give a shit about.

That's why "we" are in for a rough ride, not because of the actions of a minority of "common criminals", but because of the inactions of the majority of taxpaying/law-abiding citizens, said inactions being both the electing and reelecting of the aforementioned cock-suckers and ass-lickers and the retarded decision to obey those asinine laws which result in our being victimized.

There is no more reliable way to encourage and incite lawlessness than the making and enforcing of asinine laws.

As long as "we" continue to elect and reelect assholes, "we" will continue to be subjected to the asinine laws and policies that are regularly the products of assholes.

Either learn to love eating the shit produced by these assholes or commit yourselves to removing these shit-producers from the positions of authority they now use and abuse.

Crying? probably not. Venting? most assuradley.

This Department is in the crapper, and in my opinion we have been manipulated by "powers that be" into a divided rank and file. We have a weak fraternal organization representing blue shirts in contract negotiations, and numerous organizations within. So when the city dangles a 10% over 4 year raise, and an extra furlo day in exchange for 50% management assignments across the board and we jump on it cause its and extra day off we get what we deserve.

So to bring it full circle arent we all frustrated with the way things are going in our department?

But how can Daley give special dispensation on the residency? It is not a city personnel policy, but a city ordinance. City council would have pass a new law to amend it.

One asshole talks about being ashamed to say he was a Chicago resident for 25 years, because of our conduct.

I too am ashamed. For having to protect and serve dipshits like this on a daily basis!

All the letters are of the "why couldn't we taze it or tranqualize it" variety.

I wish they could see that youtube video of some asswipe on an african safari, that leaves the RangeRover for 30 seconds to get a closer camera shot of one of these majestic creatures. The last laugh of this morons life was to look back at his wife and kids and make a funny face. The majestic creature pounced and dragged him off and consumed him as his wife, kids, and other horrified "eco tourists" looked on while screaming.

I knew what was about to unfold as I watched, and laughed my ass off. Its natures way of thinning the gene pool!

These losers need to get a life. Anyone who has time to write a letter to the editor has to much idle time on their hands!

Thanks for letting me vent SCC!

Now I'm going to take a shit and do my part to save the environment, by recycling the tribune sports page, if you know what I mean!


I'm with you. I was pissed when I read that rag. I make it a point not to buy either of the bullshit papers but I did so because my mother is in the hospital and she requests them. When I read the editorials about the cougar I was furious, you can't post one positive letter to the editor? How dare those idiot liberal no nothing morons.

Do you know the cops who regularly work the beat where YOU live? Do you have their cell numbers? All 3 watches? Do you ever phone in what you see to your district watch commander, tact lt. gang or tact Sgts? Do you and other CONCERNED neighbors have a block club? If one exists, how active are you with it? Are you part of the block club "phone tree?" I thought so. Much easier to bitch about the problem than to work with others to find solutions.

I see a lot of similarities of 1st watch in 008 and 016. Not the greatest leadership, and poor initiative from the troops themselves. Not many riding around backing each other up.
Don't blame "the boss" if you know what's going on in YOUR neighborhood and don't give a rat's ass to do something about it!
"The boss" hasn't told ANYONE to go out there and NOT be the Police!! When I firs hit the streets 23 years ago, they sent me to the District I grew up in. My grandparents still lived on the block I grew up on. I knew all their neighbors. They all had my pager number. Something jumped off? They called. If I was working, I responded. If I was off duty, I called the desk, and they sent a car over there directly. IT WORKED. My grandparent's block was one of the quietest in that District. All the bums in the area stayed off that block, because they knew if the fucked up, they were getting a free trip to JAIL. No excuses, no "warnings," they went, cars were towed, etc. If we don't show any balls to the criminal element, they have no other choice than to assume we don't have any. Even with all the newfangled electronics people have, you can still financially strap these lowlifes LEGALLY without sending anybody to the emergency room.
We just have to have to will to set the tone where we want to, whether it's our beat or our neighborhood. The dope man can't make any money if he constantly has to trek down to impoundment court, the auto pound, or 26th st. to fight a case, it's not rocket science. Bankrupt the wrongdoers, and they'll make the smart choice themselves.

It still took the helicopter to get on scene about 15 min. Outside units are slow to react. No extra fire power for the street cop. Mayor, J-fed your going to loose our commitment even more if you properly train, maintain, and equipt us street cops with what we need out there. This was not an isolated incident. There are more shitheads with more fire power compared to our sidearm. Maybe the mayor and J-fed could ride around on a friday or saturday night and respond to shots fired calls all over the city. He would crap his pants.

The residency ruling from the sgt in 017 is not a department policy issue, it was a police board ruling. They apparently said an address in the city is good enough. If true, live where you like in the burbs but keep on on spot in the city, you are not even required to go back there. This is the mayor's police board deciding these cases, so I would watch for this sgt to get screwed in some other manner, the stuttering midget will not allow this type of insubordination to go on in his city, would he?

Take a good look at that picture ... the offender was hardly a bad shot. Those are very tight groupings in the driver and passenger side of the windshield.

The person who fired that automatic rifle with such precision is VERY, VERY dangerous!

J-Fed, Mr. FBI/USMC...arm the police with the firepower to protect themselves!

We need armored trucks! Tanks for patrol! How about attack helicopters sort of like the one from the movie "Blue Thunder" an urban assault vehicle this would sure scare the boys on the corner!

hey bigmouth...why don't you stop dropping names and come here and show us how its done ??? wanna compare part 1 arrests with us ? I'll bet that I have more (and not bullshit agg. assaults and retail thefts). not every tact/ gang/ watch person is a dog. 30 square miles to patrol and very short on all watches spreads things kinda thin. if you don't like the job that we are doing, bid here and show us the way to do your type of police work. otherwise SHUT THE FUCK UP ASSHOLE !!!!!!!!! wow...you get dope everyday...right ? my kid could spot a crackhead or heroin addict in the ghetto, so get off of your highhorse and put up or shut up !

Thefts from or damage to several vehicles parked in an off-street private or public lot require only one report regardless of the number of vehicles involved (one report is used if several articles belonging to different persons are stolen at the same time from one place - i.e., coat check room). If thefts from or damage to several vehicles occur on the street, make one report for each vehicle involved.

Wrong dickhead read the fbi uniform reporting guide. you are qouting something from the hotel/motel rule. nice try

why is it that the tact/gang teams get shipped to the ghetto to patrol where the residents(using that term losely) do not want them? why is it that all the former ghetto coppers that transferred to 016 for the purpose of protecting the homefront get sent south? theres plenty of shit up north in jefferson/edison park where those coppers are needed. or just get the dog ass coppers that dont want to do shit and put then inside or somewhere other than the street. they will be happy and poilice work will get done

Will somebody, WHO WAS THERE, please confirm or deny:

A. All the holes were made by the offender shooting at the cops.

B. All the holes were made be the cops shooting at the offender.

C. Some of the holes are from the offender shooting at the cops and some of the holes are from the cops shooting at the offender. (What is the split?)

D. Those are not holes, they are bird shit hits. (As long as no cops were hurt I felt I could put this last part in.)

Remember, only if you were there and could testify in court to what you know.

Stay safe and shoot straight.

Glad to know the two officers are ok. Just from photo - (6)holes from drivers side = oldtimer with a revolver - right handed, (11)holes from passenger side - with semi auto pistol. Can always tell "inny" or "outy" with a front windshield, plastic laminate bends in direction of bullet travel. Was not there - compliments to those who were.
