Show of Farce

Yes, we meant "farce" in the title. Following Daley's "anti violence summit"
  • Chicago police were gearing up to fight the weekend's violence with a planned outdoor roll call Friday night. SWAT and other specialized units were expected to patrol the city's streets through the late-night hours.

    The public show was expected to be part of the department's push to stem the violence that has erupted in the city in recent weeks. While the department has deployed SWAT in past years as a response to summer violence, the move comes earlier this year because of the recent spate of violence.
  • Those who attended the meeting also offered some suggestions. Tio Hardimon of anti-violence group CeaseFire said, "We need to meet with the business community out here and try to find employment for a lot of these young men and women. We need to go to the corners and find out what some of these young men and women want to do, identify some employers that are willing to hire maybe 30 from this neighborhood... and try to get them hired somewhere and get them off the corners."
Didn't these Ceasefire bozos lose their funding? In any event, taking highly trained SWAT officers and having them wander the neighborhoods with unloaded rifles is sure to make a difference.

Anyone remember September 2001? The old HBT squad was ordered... ORDERED! ... by the mayor to leave O'Hare and Midway airports because the sight of big bad scary rifles was "intimidating" to the citizenry. Within days of 4 airliners being hijacked and flown into buildings, this mayor wanted all the guns under wraps. We give this a day and the mayor will want all the scary guns put back out of sight again.

Someone at the city's airports has terrorized the trouble makers to the tune of multiple transfers (dumps)and reassignments.

Who has that kind of power? Apparently someone that was under estimated.

Assholes have to be careful who they fuck with. You never know who their juice is!

Runway Ron has been watching the drama at the airports unfold into a number of reassignments.

The curious question is: when will the indictments take place and which heads are likely to roll?

The feds have laid down an excellent smoke screen. When it clears: who will be left standing?

SWAT guys are great at what they do! SWAT Stuff, leave street policing to the street cop. A SWAT guy couldn't even do the paperwork on most arrests because they are out of touch with day to day operations and paperwork. NOT A SLAM ON SWAT! They are specially trained for a purpose!
Mayor and Supt, cut the crap on the 13,500 cops working!!! WE HAVE LESS THAN 10,000 FOR THE WHOLE CITY AND A PALTRY UNDER 60 ASSIGNED TO ohare the BUSIEST AIRPORT IN THE WORLD!
Ridicules, we have over 20 year old shotguns in our stations with ammo just as old and were not even allowed to use them. Sell them as the antiques they are and equip and train us properly!
Killings are going to continue! Don't blame the POLICE blame the mayor, states atty's who don't prosecute and judges who let everyone go!!!

Jody I hear from the grape vine that you said something but only the 30 in the front row could hear you. the other 400 in attendance couldnt hear you since you DIDNT have a bull horn. way to go nimrod. secondly, in progress call were being dispatched and we were all standing by in the rain for 1/2 hour. duh. seat belt mission on a slow non happening block, was that your idea, duh again.

OK, let me get this right. The city experiences violence in the usual neighborhoods from the usual suspects and the answer from Cease Fire is that employers should go to the street corners and see if these lads want a job? Doing what, exactly? Shooting up other parts of the neighborhood? Mopping floors? These thugs have made a career choice already. They want easy money and sell a product that they are willing to protect using violence.

They won't study and want something for nothing. Where ever did they learn that from? Let me think for a moment. So now neighborhood businesses are at fault and need to hire them to sit around and talk trash while doing nothing or else there will be more violence?

I think it's almost time for another revolution to get rid of some of the dead weight here. Thugs and liberals need to go.

No guns should be visible when dealing with violent offenders because it might frighten them. Guns should be hidden from sight when dealing with citizens so as not to offend them with these tools of destruction. All guns are evil except those that guard da mayor and all other powers of government. Social programs and jobs for everyone. All illegals may enter and work so that they can take their money back out of the country. They don't need a driver's license or insurance. Free medical care will be provided to them at taxpayer expense.
Thugs who won't learn will be given jobs teaching others how to get free money from the government. They will be allowed to have as many children as possible at taxpayer expense. Schools will provide day and night care so single parents can continue to party and not drown their infants.

Here is how Commander Crump-Hales is responding to the increase in shootings.....

She issued an order that says... (this is verbatim)

"All Watch Commander's and Tactical Lieutenant will notify the Aldermen's office on all shootings that occur in their Ward,and in the event of a Homicide, they will bw notified immediately. Attached is a list of the Aldermen's office and their Ward break down."

WTF. Since when are aldermen part of the command structure and need to be notified of shootings?

A side note... Who ever wrote that should learn, at least a little, about sentence structure, punctuation and grammar.

1,300 out of 10,000. Does this mean only Sergeant's get them, like Tasers?
A lot of good that will do a PO who is getting shot at as the Sergeant's car is parked at the station.

Not to mention, who is paying for these?

We don't need more gun laws! We need to have the STATES ATTORNEY'S & JUDGES enforce the ones we have!
For instance.

A Copper during a narcotics buy in 007 was robbed. Bad guy put a GUN to his head rifled thru his pockets and took marked money.(ARMED ROBBERY) Bad guy was apprehended. Textbook arrest, recovered the weapon , marked money still in his pocket. 12 coppers positively identified bad guy. Felony charges approved the whole 9 yards. A little time passed and the copper that was robbed with a gun to his head got a letter from the States attorney's office saying that the BAD GUY was PLEAD OUT WITH 2 YEARS PROBATION. They did't even consult the officer. 2 Day's ago The same State's Attorney was in the news paper for getting some yo-yo 2 or 3 years in jail for ticket scalping. WTF IF THE MAYOR WANTS SHIT TO BE RIGHT !! WHY NOT START WITH THE LAWS WE HAVE BUT HAVE THE JUDGES AND ATTORNEYS DO THIER JOB. OH IF IT WERE A POLICEMAN THAT WAS WRONG THE BOOK WOULD BE THROWN AT THEM FOR J WALKING.

These frivilous lawsuits,Bullshit CR#s,Kissing the public's asses.

THE POLICE ARE AFRAID TO DO THIER JOBS. AND I DON'T BLAME THEM.

JODY NEEDS TO GO INTO THE STREET AND WORK A BEAT CAR IN 002,005,007, 011, 015 IN A BLUE SHIRT AND SEE HOW IT IS TO BE SHIT ON, SPIT ON AND GO HOME WITH HIS TAIL BETWEEN HIS LEGS BECAUSE AS THE POLICE YOU CAN'T DO SHIT OR YOU WILL BE STRIPPED AND FIRED.

If the mayor had it his way, the police would not have any guns at all, much less, unloaded rifles. He doesn't want to scare the poor little honor students (illegally armed gangbangers) with guns of any kind.

Maybe he feels that they will learn by example. Police don't have weapons, neither will the gangbangers. Hey mayor, why don't you unarm your bodyguards? Why do you have bodyguards? It's time you led by example.

The NRA that you complain about endorses LEGAL GUNS,(a right to bear arms, read the Constitution) these people do not use them to kill other people. These guns are registered in their names, they undergo a procedure to buy their guns. Your little honor students (gangbangers) have illegal weapons, obtained on the street.

Oh by the way, maybe you should have your blood pressure checked, if your face gets any redder, you may have a heart attack or stroke. Learn how to calm down, and relax, and by the way, let the police do their job again. Police allowed to do their jobs equal a pretty quiet, nice to live, city. Police NOT allowed to do their jobs equal a "CITY IN CHAOS." (Urbs in Chaos)

Think about that for awhile, oh wait you have a one track mind. Sorry, I told you to think.

Like the CPD needs ARs or such.

You have had gun control in that town for decades!

Safe storage laws
Bans on evil rifles like the AR15,
Registration laws since 89.

Why do you need such? If the laws worked, why do cops need such to patrol the 'hood?

Gun bans should always start with government workers. If you cannot register a pistol since 1982, you all should be limited to guns made before 1982.

Whats good for the goose, is good for the gander.

DA MARE'S RULE OF THUMB:

Whenever Daley names a "blue ribbon panel" or has "a summit" on potentially embarrassing issues, the no-spin translation is:

"I am clueless. I must deflect any imminent onslaught by my critics that could cast me as corrupt or an abysmal failure. Now I can say 'we're studying it' and keep them off my back. If I told the truth, I'd jeopardize my political correctness. The revs and their morons would be all over me."

It was interesting seeing all the old copppers who got riled up on another post. Just remember, old timers, that the person was responding to an insult thrown at the police by one of us (I'm retired too.) You can cite chapter and verse about how tough you had it, but I remember all the old guys before us who sang the same song. The fact is, the job is different today. You may think it's easier than you had it, but you are sounding just like the old timers we had to endure when we were young. The difference is that when you take shots at today's cops, you're standing shoulder to shoulder with Al Sharpton, Jesse, Rev Wright, Daley and the media. I challenge you to separate yourself from their company and stand together with those who have succeeded you. I agree with the writer who said the coppers of today are the finest bunch of people to ever wear the star. But I'm prejudiced; a couple of them are my kids. I pray for them every day and I'm proud of them.

For those of you who will attack me over this I know the type of person you are: You never had any pride when you wore blue; the only way you got on the job was the payoff to the alderman; you were the guy who made traffic stops just to get a ten spot.

SCC, just one thing wrong with the statement. Our rifles are loaded, we're just told not to actually carry them because of our brilliant mayor Daley. Its amazing that the so called 'upper class' of society can go vacationing to resorts in 3rd world countries and not be offended by the 17 year old armed guards at the gate of the resort with their M-16s, but to have SWAT officers in airports with their PRIMARY WEAPON on their person rather than in their vehicle in a vault is offensive to them, the mayor, and his wife.
Its going to take a very severe catastrophe to get us prepared appropriately. Whatever does wind up happening will be largely due to the fault of those that make the policy here in Chicago to not allow trained officers to do their job effectively. And thats not just SWAT, its department-wide.
Hey Mayor Daley,
Let the police do their job and back them up on it! The city is going to hell in a handcart.

Here is how Commander Crump-Hales is responding to the increase in shootings.....

She issued an order that says... (this is verbatim)

"All Watch Commander's and Tactical Lieutenant will notify the Aldermen's office on all shootings that occur in their Ward,and in the event of a Homicide, they will bw notified immediately. Attached is a list of the Aldermen's office and their Ward break down."

Don't most shootings and homicides happen at night or on weekends?
How often has anyone seen Aldertheives in their office at night or on weekends. So we leave messages on machines?

Maybe they should give us the home or cell numbers of these theives so that we can call them at night and on the weekends to let them know what is happening in the ghetto that they represent?

We must remeber that "THEY ARE THE 1ST LINE OF DEFENCE".
That is why when you call 911 iy goes the their office and not the police and fire.

Yep, 9th. In the WORLD SWAT competition. And as a 1st year competitor with less than a month to train. Why dont you put your money where your mouth is and try out for the team?
Or better yet, when one of us assists on one of your jobs, tell them you think theyre full of shit. Stop by homan square and ask if anyone wants to meet you at the range and have a little 'friendly' competition.

You'll never hear one of us bash anyone in patrol. Some patrolmen here are just like the citizens and reverends: they talk shit about the same people that will be running into a building to save their ass when the shit really hits the fan.

Downsized because they were oversized. How about giving them set days off. Sun/Mon & Tues/Wed, that way they are working for the ever so bloody weekends. But I'm sure they will just get to work their weekends off for time and a half. What a scam!! Since the warm weather brings out all the bloodshed, Why not be like the mounted unit? They can't have any summer furlo. That's part of being in that unit. I'm sure the other perks would outweigh these concessions. That's something you have to give up for being in "elite" units.

Its about time they downsized TRU. What's the point in having approx. 330 officers in one unit that about 30% of the officers actually bring in heads. The other 70% bring in ANOVs, parkers, and curfews. The first 100 officers in TRU were actually good PO's. They were from Tact/gangs teams and Housing. After they got a taste of the BS standup roll calls and the fact that impounds are just as good as a gun, most of them left. Now you have a few good guys there surrounded by a bunch of know-nothings. You want to know why gun recoveries are low...because TRU doesn't know what they're doing and they disbanded the unit that used to bring in the most guns...SOS. Before people start bashing SOS take a look at the numbers. They don't lie. To tell the truth I thought this blog was going to be about TRU when I saw this blog's title "Show of Farce."

All three of the traditional 'Vices', namely Gambling, Prostitution and 'Recreational Substances', should be legalized, regulated and taxed.

The use of Zoning will do more to remove these vices, and those who choose to exercise their freedoms to indulge in same, from the residential communities they are now infesting.

Establish 'Vice Zones', much like Industrial, Manufacturing and Commercial Zoning, encourage the investments that Las Vegas has enjoyed, impose taxes and fees to cover the extra costs likely for law enforcement, fire protection and medical services, require each and every business to have it's own, private security and first aid, plus the obvious liability insurances, create many new jobs heretofore not existing legally, and we'll all enjoy a reduction in our property and sales taxes beyond our wildest dreams.

There are many large pieces of property scattered throughout this city and county that would be suitable for these types of businesses. The south side alone is starving for jobs and the tax revenues that all those empty lots and abandoned buildings fail to produce.

Removing the money that the illegality of the three vices creates, said illegality artificially inflating the price of these consumer demanded goods and services, will do more to impede the criminal gangs from having the resources they use as a primary means and motive for their violent actions.

While there will still be some who choose to try to 'sell their wares' within the residential neighborhoods not zoned for vices, there will be little demand for their goods and services, since the same or better can be had legally within the 'Vice Zones'.

If the reason for there being laws against the three vices is to protect society from the negative effects of same, what better way than to isolate and segregate the providers and the consumers, via 'Vice Zoned' businesses?

Those whose 'religious' or 'moral' sensibilities inspire an objection to this idea can feel free not to indulge in same, not to associate or do business with those who they believe do indulge in same and not to employ those who indulge in same.

Social and economic pressures are both more effective than legal pressures, as our history has proven time and time again.

Temptation is a creation of God, trying to criminalize it, to discourage it's indulgence, is the folly of man.

Do you really want these mutts working on your home's electric, plumbing, HVAC, structure, roofing, etc.?

Or anywhere near you and yours with a hammer, sawzall, power drill, etc., in their 'well-trained' hands?

Education starts at birth, in the home and then in the early years of grammar school.

The systems now in place, that are supposed to 'educate' all children, fail to teach what they need to learn the most, namely respect for the essential truths of living.

During the time when children's natural propensities and talents should be identified, developed and encouraged, the present system imposes a cookie-cutter, make everyone be the same mentality, substantially ignoring the humanity, personality and individuality of the students that will become, in due course of time, the adults of our society.

Children exhibit their natural tendencies during their K to 6th grade years and it's during this period that the present asinine 'education' system, geared totally to 'test scores', begins to fail to prepare them for living in this world, by not doing what is most helpful, namely, encouraging and enabling each child's natures to be pursued.

Some kids are more interested and suited to work with their hands, some with their intellects, some with their imaginations.

By the time a child reaches the 7th grade, he or she should be experiencing a curriculum heavily weighted in their natural talents and abilities, be those talents and abilities primarily practical, artistic or analytic.

Suppressing natural propensities and curiosities only results in convincing children that the adults are a bunch of hypocritical, fucking idiots, which results, eventually, in the large number of young adults being unprepared for real life.

These kids are bored, the smarter ones having figured out early on that public education isn't nearly what it's touted as being, isn't nearly as dedicated to encouraging real learning as it's claimed to be and, for the kids blessed with common sense, isn't the only source of knowledge available to satisfy their curiosities and desire to know.

The old formats for teaching are failing, since these patterns of instruction are designed for the slowest learners. And by slowest learners, I do not mean dumb or stupid or incapable of learning, I just mean slower. Even a child who appears to be having 'problems keeping up' with his or her class's curriculum isn't incapable of learning many useful and productive things, as, when a subject that a given child is interested in is made available, that child will learn as quickly as the so-called 'normal' child.

What we have done, in accepting the educational industry's 'standards' as gospel, is to have failed our children and failed ourselves.

Since our kids experience at least a third of their lives within the school environment, during the most important periods of their lives, parents who think that their only responsibility concerning their kid's education is to make sure that their kid's are 'doing their homework' are, in reality, failing to meet their parental responsibilities.

Life contains so many activities, so many different things to do, for the purpose of earning a living or just for one's own satisfaction and recreation.

Our educational systems, both public and private, should be designed to encourage the natural talents and abilities of our children, not to impose pressures to conform to the short-sighted and minimal 'requirements' currently wasting our tax dollars.

What is an M-4 rifle anyway? Isn't it just basically a 9mm handgun with a buttstock attached?
4/26/2008 02:48:00 PM

No dumbass, a M 4 shoots a 223 round which will rip right through your vest. This is the same rifle the special forces use in the U.S.military. It's the tactical version of the M 16. So let me know if your 9mm can shoot through a bullet proof vest, if it does,I must be carrying the wrong duty approved department ammo. My only fear is that more cops will be shooting each other with this rifle because of lack of experience and not enough time for training and practicing. If you get shot with this rifle, you preatty much can kiss your ass good bye. hopfully they don't end up in the wrong officers hands. we all have been at annual handgun qualifications and seen some of our fellow officers shoot or how well they maintain their weapons. If you don't lubricate or clean your gun at least min. once a month do yorself a favor and buy a glock. they are more forgiving......

I was dropping my nephews off at my sister's house around 2050 hrs. You she had on NBC but I don't know what the show was. It showed a copper taking two teenage girls home for some curfew violation. The copper drops off the girl and then passes up the second girl's house. The copper then starts implying that he needs a sexual favor and then the girl wakes up from her dream crying for her mother.

Disgusting! Thank God my daughter wasn't watching that crap on NBC. Nice way to show us on prime time TV.

Just what in the hell has changed so much that you just want to do the minimal to get by?
Afraid of CR#s? Bullshit, they come with the territory and if you take 30 your getting a break instead of being fired.
Now, since many have to pay the alderman for the job, how much did it cost you for your two? I also worked with Oldtimers,but very little, we were mostly oneman cars,and most of us had part-time gigs. It was kind of rough living on $5200 starting pay.
Did some guys take traffic money? I'm sure they did ,but never witnessed it. I also saw some lose their jobs over money beefs.
As far as Education, was all for it and still am.GI Bill gave me mine,and working 7 years in the old 11 and 13 was the best street education you could get.

4/26/2008 02:48:00 PM

HMMMM, I suspect you know the difference but in case you don't,an M-4 is a shortened M-16A2 with a collapsible stock which basically makes it a carbine. Now I don't generally care for .223 caliber but it could be better if they are using 62 grain ammo instead of the 55 grain surplus, actually there is a wide variety of loads for the .223. The Army has had problems with the M-4 as well and are experimenting(for some time now) with a new caliber specifically designed for the shortened barrel M-4, the 6.8mm(.270 cal.)110 to 130 grain projectiles, which is showing excellent results out to 300 meters. Do we really need this M-4? I think not,the antiquated 870's would do just fine but they are kept locked up where they won't scare anyone. So what makes you think we're actually gonna get M-4's?

A few years ago one of the CPS high schools on the south side got rid of its welding class equipment because the principal thought everyone should have a chance at college.

Well, college isn't really for everyone. Some people don't have the motivation and drive. Or the interest.

And while it is true that college grads make more, are they really ahead after paying off the debt?

4/26/2008 12:04:00 AM

Its about time they downsized TRU. What's the point in having approx. 330 officers in one unit that about 30% of the officers actually bring in heads. The other 70% bring in ANOVs, parkers, and curfews. The first 100 officers in TRU were actually good PO's. They were from Tact/gangs teams and Housing. After they got a taste of the BS standup roll calls and the fact that impounds are just as good as a gun, most of them left. Now you have a few good guys there surrounded by a bunch of know-nothings. You want to know why gun recoveries are low...because TRU doesn't know what they're doing and they disbanded the unit that used to bring in the most guns...SOS. Before people start bashing SOS take a look at the numbers. They don't lie. To tell the truth I thought this blog was going to be about TRU when I saw this blog's title "Show of Farce."

What has changed? You must be REALLY out of touch! Are you relying on your vast 7 years street experience or on the Sun-Times, the Tribune and CLTV? In 7 years how many CR#'s did you get where you took 30 days? Not many because things were very different even just a few years ago. Today you go on a domestic, baby mama bleeding but says dont arrest da man he's just drunked up so you leave. Mama of baby's mama calls IPRA. CR# for not performing police duties. You gotta let a DUI go because it's the third one tonight and the shift is so short there's no backup and half are working 99. Later an inspector checks your dash-cam footage. CR#. You respond to a call of gangs fighting in the street. Someone throws a beer bottle you grab him he shoves you so you put him on the ground. G-girl with the cell phone camera tapes the arrest but edits out the bottle and the shove. She files with IPRA ONLINE. CR#. And this happens in the first two days of your week. What's changed? According to your math, that's 90 days off for three calls. That NEVER came with YOUR territory.

Oh, and I never "witnessed" anyone taking money, either. (Wink, wink.)

I didn't know it was a 223, thats why I asked. Now I REALLY don't want our young, inexperienced cops carrying them if they'll shoot right thru a Coppers body armor vest. Also, although it happens infrequently, most gangbangers don't wear body armor vests, so what's the point? Just another pea-brained idea. And, doesn't SWAT already have those
M-4's? I bet you'd whine like a Pussy if the Department gave them out only to officers with over 20 years on the job, because you are obviously one of numerous who have less than 10 yrs on,watches too many Rambo movies, and would be too stupid and incompetent in properly handling such a powerful weapon anyway.

If the reason for there being laws against the three vices is to protect society from the negative effects of same, what better way than to isolate and segregate the providers and the consumers, via 'Vice Zoned' businesses?

Isolate and segregate the providers and the customers...what a great idea!

Why hasn't anyone with a brain thought of this one before? To understand why, you only have to look at the results wrought by 50 years of segregating and isolating the providers and the customers at Cabrini. That small issue aside, them potential tax dollars shure done look savory.

Now that the Children's Museum is set to leave Navy Pier for Millennium Park, let's make it's soon to be vacated location at the pier a 'Children's Vice Zone'! What better way to educate our future leaders and showcase the obvious benefits of 'Vice Zoned' businesses than to have little Bobby and Cindy take part in interactive presentations depicting the plus side of living in a City that legally promotes whoring, gambling, and the snorting of opiates.

Better still, we could make all the 'under-performing' students in our great City's public and private schools attend 'Youth Vice Enterprise Academies'. That way, these underachieving youths from all over Chicago, rich and poor, from Edison Park to Englewood, who are looking to make a quick buck AND mortgage their futures, can learn the 'skills' necessary to compete in the only place that will be open to them, the 'Vice Zones'. (Nice run-on sentence, huh? I knew you'd be proud!) Those who graduate become Chicago-licensed vice vendors, those that flunk out become users, and everyone else gets to watch as Chicago turns into another Detroit.

ot---man with a gun call last nite at 106th/western in the alley behind cork & kerry. 2 tru officers were walking into dunkin donuts at 104th/western right after the call was made. the tru officers were informed about the call and one of them says, "we're on citywide." and they continue walking into dunkin donuts. then another tru car pulls into dunkin donuts. but i do commend 022 for their quick response in the pouring rain. unfortunately the offender got away. THANKS TRU!!!! YOU'RE EVEN MORE WORTHLESS IN YOUR BDU'S AND I KNOW EVERYONE ONE OF YOU LIVES IN 022- THANKS FOR NOTHING IN YOUR OWN NEIGHBORHOOD

Obvoiusly you werent running out to the call either if you had time to sit there and watch them. You are a dog ass too. Maybe if you dog asses would but the long eyes on the gang bangers instead of the guys from TRU you might stop a shooting or two.

Look, it's obvious whoever you are that you hate TRU guys. Get over it, man. Your penis is too small to rate that job. Now according to your story, there was a man with a gun call two blocks away and you ran up to the TRU guys to tell them to go to the call. How did this happen. Were you running away from the call? Or were you the one who called in the unfounded call? Either way you are a weak-kneed coward. Now go put your pink frock on and watch Oprah!

No dumbass, a M 4 shoots a 223 round which will rip right through your vest. This is the same rifle the special forces use in the U.S.military.

Big deal, the old HBT Squad was about as adept at taking on terrorists as Pee-Wee Herman is. I'm on the Mayor's side on this one. It does NO good to have a few HBT cops walking around the Airport with HBT Uniforms and rifles. It's just a show,and it probably scares the average citizen more than it comforts them.

Does a gangbanger ever rob that old lady right in front of you, or at the local 018th district Starbucks? No. Because of Police Presence. If we had trained officers in the airports, maybe that presence could also deter possible terrorist action in said airport? Use your brain. I think as soon as you said "I'm on the mayors side on this one" you showed yourself also to be an ignorant stuttering prick.

Yea, Okay...off duty and hanging around the dunkin donught. Thats creepy. Let me guess, probably wearing his uniform to get a free dozen glazed "for the desk". And you call TRU dogs? Dis you ever think that maybe they were on city wide 1 and didnt hear the call. Oh yea thats right the off duty had his radio shack scanner in his pocket so he can get freebies.

Former 153 here too......

I always thought the "Gun tote board" that Prendkowski and Churma were always fixing was as gay as them.........

However if you really looked at it (besides the naked OL' Girl pix that would pop up once in a while) you would shit your pants on those seizures of mainly Guns but also the dope and cash seized along with it!! Too much to even relate to you all here (AK's Tec's Mach 10's etc.)

If all those pix were made into a magazine over the course of just the Gun Boeards existence (several years ) it would be a vey THICK magazine!!

Those outside the "know" have no clue!

One thing to bring it all back means......Credibility in the courts needs to be there too guys and that is out the window. ASA's do NOT trust us nor do the Judges in fact the criminal justice system in Cook County is Jagged up
and not designed to rectify any problems except white collar and police corruption!

Nobody should go back to the way it was unless you want to BELIEVE you are covered and you are not. TRU was designed to be controlled by the bosses (nervous, green and clueless coppers that were not around alledged corrupt older ones)

Sorry I really did not mean to offend anyone either of old SOS or new TRU. It is what it is!

"....Isolate and segregate the providers and the customers...what a great idea!

Why hasn't anyone with a brain thought of this one before? To understand why, you only have to look at the results wrought by 50 years of segregating and isolating the providers and the customers at Cabrini....


...You have to admit these ideas are so brilliant they could only have come from an enlightened Man of God such as yourself.

4/27/2008 02:39:00 PM"


A few dishonest analogies.

I'd expect nothing more of you.


1. Vice Zones would be established subject to public hearings AND a binding referendum voted on by the citizens residing within an agreed upon geographical radius of the proposed zone's boundaries. Something that's not done concerning the zoning/rezoning of private property at present.

2. Since NONE of the three vices has been legal for the past "50 years", there is nothing legitimate or honest about your 'comparison'.

Further, the legalizing, regulating, taxing and zoning of these consumer desired goods and services, restricted, by law, to designated 'vice zones', would, indeed, remove a substantial percentage of those who indulge in them from doing so within residential areas and/or on the public ways.

In case you haven't figured it out, this would result in most 'indulgers' voluntarily seeking their indulgences within the lawful areas described.

Gambling, Prostitution and 'Drug Dealing' would still remain unlawful outside of those properly licensed and located businesses within the vice zones, so your 'fears' of having whores, gamblers and dopers next door to your residence would be unfounded and the prospects of having neighbors engaging in activities not to your liking will be much less likely then they are today.

3. You are certainly as free, as free as the kind owners of this blog permit you to be, to restrict the content of your comments to dishonest exaggeration, distortion, and sarcastic moralizing, however, if you really have something intelligent to say, feel free to give it your best shot, pursuant to the aforementioned kindness of the owners of this blog.

4. Finally, I must say, it is disappointing, to say the least, to watch, as you repeatedly use your concept of being religious as a substitute for rational, reasonable and intelligent discourse.

Perhaps you would do well to actually read the Bible, particularly the New Testament, as a precursor to forming your opinions and expressing them.

You might start with "Judge Not, Least Thee Be Judged" and "Let He Who Is Without Sin Cast The First Stone" and "Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself".

As for

"...'Temptation is a creation of God, trying to criminalize it, to discourage it's indulgence, is the folly of man.'

Once again, your ass cheeks part and God speaks.

Having had just a little experience with firearms training and some more in the area of Chicago Law Enforcement, I have to say that the chances of us getting M-4's for day-to-day patrol use is a long shot. First, if you think that carrying a carbine with 120 or 240 rounds in an urban environment is easy, you're wrong. Where are we going to qualify? How long would training be? Do they assign them to just former or current members of the military? What career fields? Even in the military there are some fields that only qualify once a year. Just MP's? How often will they qualify? Do they take surplus rifles? They won't because many are full auto (A-1s). They could get M-4's locally, but they have burned the bridge leading to local firearms companies by filing lawsuits against them for making the same rifles.
I don't think we're getting them, but it can go on the list of things that J-Fraud has put out there to distract us.

If he was responding to the job himself and not watching what other PO's were doing, the south side as a whole might not be going to shit.

Besides watching what other officer's are doing you may wnat to kill some time by watching the crime rate where you live go up and the property values go down...

Legal or not, it doesn't matter, more people and neighborhoods will be brought down as a result of your grand 'Vice Zone' plan. Take off your blast goggles for a moment and look at the cumulative effects of what has happened in Cabrini over the last 50 years and you can see how your 'dream' will play out.

If your ego spontaneously combusts in a forest and no one sees it implode, will mankind be able to survive without your powerful insights? Thanks for the economics lesson professor.

If a 'substantial percentage', say 70 out of every 100 'indulgers' go to the 'Vice Zones', what remaining number of 'indulgers' will go elsewhere for their fix? Let's see, 100 minus 70 equals...30 out of every hundred. But since you'll be welcoming all of them 'indulgers' to your designated 'Vice Zone' neighborhood with open arms, all is well in the end. Whew, I feel better already, and it's not because of the movement I just had.

Hopefully the City will provide a free shuttle bus to transport 'indulgers' to your neighborhood so these 'indulgers' can feed their habit off the burglary proceeds from your Casa. Are you so naïve to think the criminal element won't figure out a way to continue bringing unregulated 'indulgences' to the unregulated 'indulgers'? You must live in Never Land with Michael Jackson.
