Olympic Dream Dying?

  • Supporters of Chicago's Olympic bid are concerned that the city's recent rash of deadly violence could end their dream of seeing the games here in 2016.

    [...] there's also concern among many South Side residents that the violence may be spiraling out of control.

    "With all the violence going on, who's gonna want to come here when people are getting shot left and right?" said South Side resident Erica Williams.
After all, the Olympic Village and not a few sports venues are supposed to be on the southside. Yellow and red crime scene tape might be a over the top unless we can somehow get red, green blue tape to match the Olympic colors.

No, please come here for the Olympics. When we see you getting beaten and mugged, we'll call 911. They will come.....eventually. If you're in real trouble, call an honor student, they're all armed.

HAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAA!!!! Ride it then eat it bitches!!!! You got exactly the police department you've been longing for... Creature Feature is now playing and it's for real, no amount of running & crying can change it... the gates of hell have swung wide the fuck open and I LOVE IT!!! So what if ray-ray got shot? since they hate the police so much why even bother responding? put his ass in a cardboard box and bury him beside the house... they're gonna handle "bidness"... i don't see jesse, al, meeks, or jakes getting off their stank-bloated asses & snatching guns from the hands of these "misunderstood" youths at 3am... as long as the mutts kill each other, jesse & co. won't say shit if they had a mouthful but when one of these assclowns gets a well deserved & overdue "hair combing" by the police, they're all over like flies on home made horseshit... Burn Chicago, BURN!!! Hey mumbles, how about having a stroke & a coronary, at least the city won't be on the hook for your legal defense when your "public official ?" number comes up, you goblin...

Does your niece (or nephew) own a nice restaurant in Naperville?

P.S.: NICE, the city on the French Riviera, is pronounced like the female version of nephew. While we're at it, CANNES (as in the Film Festival) is pronounced CAN as in a tin can.

While we're at it, let's address another frequent phonetic mistake noted frequently on this blog: "loose" does not mean "lose."
For example, you can let the cougar run "loose," but if it rips open your neck, you "lose."

-Or-

I think I hear something rattling. The screws in Daley's head must have come "loose." I bet he's going to "lose" it when the press asks him about all the murders. They might ask, Do you think we will "lose" the Olympics?

Jody might say - you know all those animals running "loose" in this city who are murdering each other? It's happening because the police officers know that if they try to stop crime they will "lose" their jobs.

At least let us have some proper grammar ladies and gentlemen I thank you...

We dont want the Olympics anyway. There are more pressing issues to spend money on in this city.
How about helping the homeless vets. How about funding the pensions properly. How about fixing and building city schools.
How about a raise for police and fire to reflect the increases in tax tax tax. Screw you mayor and your dream. We just want our town back and our kids safe. As for the police, we will take our rubber flashlights out to look for the spent brass on the streen. Atleast for 15 minutes until the charge runs out.

Got a great stock tip on a company that is getting the city contract to supply CPD with crime scene tape.

If Chicago gets the olympics I guarantee a good number of visitors to this fucked up city will become instant RD#s-victims of being raped, robbed and/or pillaged. You all really don't want to come here believe me!

Mayor Daley announced that the Olympic Village will be build over all the land used by Browns and Blacks, on the south and west sides (and maybe the southeast and southwest sides, near west, Loop, near north, far north, new city, and everyplace that looks like a trouble area). It may even extend out to Bensenville (the area he stole from it's residents and their cemetery inside the airport).

This way he will be certain to have a trouble free Olympic Festival, (hell, he might as well pave over the entire city, why take any chances).

The residents will be able to return to and reclaim their property after the games after paying a city reclamation fee of $50,000 plus sign an agreement to keep voting Democratic for the next 100 years and keeping the Daley Family in power till all the sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, have gotten their piece of Chicago.

Build it and they will come!

Maybe Not Mr. Daley?

LOL!! just like when I pulled up on a shooting scene years ago... old boy was laid out on the sidewalk with a "3rd eye" in the middle of his forehead with 30 people standing around, I goes "whodunnit" and they all say "huh?" at the same time. she-it! i think even the corpse said "huh?" just out of habit... I said "fuck this" and walked back to my car, then the mopes started with "you ain't gonna do nothin' office?" "you gonna just leave him there?" I said, "I'm not the one who shot his dumb ass with 30 people looking, you idiots can deal with him, i'm out." But by that time the cavalry came roaring in so I reconsidered and got to work on the report... the funny part was when they searched the corpse at the hospital he had a loaded gun, weed in one pocket, rocks in the other and about a couple grand... those assholes were mad because we showed up before they could rob old boy!! HAAAA HAAAAA! BURN CHICAGO BURN!!No contract, no money, no proactive police work mayor mumbles, fuck you...pay ME!! I've seen more hate, dispair, death & destruction than the revs,libs,mumbles & j-fed knew existed... I'm not here to get filthy rich but I didn't come on this job to be a peon either... hey mumbles, where is all the homeland security money? oh you got it somewhere gaining interest... what about the skyway money??? huh? your olympic dream is circling the toilet...rapidly!!!

The only real competition for Chicago for the Olympics is Rio de Janiero.

Compared to Rio, we are tranquil, suburban, and just plain peaceful.

Outside of the tourist areas there are few cities on Earth that are more dangerous. Rio has a minimum of 5,000 murders a year,,,and those are just the ones that are counted.

You people that think this is the death knell of Daley's Olympic hopes are really on a pipe dream.
