What the Public Didn't See

This is EXACTLY what we were looking for when we put up the "Tort Reform Please" post:
  • Got this from a very close source.
    Female and male run up to crashed police vehicle with two female officers inside. Driver and passenger probably knocked heads in broadside accident when hit, so both are dazed. Driver pinned behind wheel, passenger exits to help partner.
    Male tells the "plaintiff" hold her and get her shit. Plaintiff tries to get her star, struggle insues with "plaintiff" holding passenger officer in a full nelson hold while male reaches into vehicle and TAKES driver's weapon. He flees, hides gun, tells play uncle where gun is. Play uncle gets nabbed and gun recovered later. The male returns to scene to see what happened to female who could not get away with arrival of the calvary. CITIZEN WITNESSES quietly let the police know who they actually have as a witness is the female offender. She is pinched for battery on scene. The male gets pointed out and grabbed for disarming, vehicular invasion et al. Guy caught with gun pleads out. Male found not guilty on technicality because element of vehicular invasion is entering by force and it is unknown if window broke in accident or by offender.
    Female also found not guilty...how I am a little unclear. At any rate "plaintiff gave confession to ASA...was fed was allowed use of washroom..blah blah blah. She was offered 75000 and said no...then we upped it...she said no...7.9 mil.
Or another version posted a few minutes later:
  • For all of you that are unfamiliar with the case, its amazing to me, someone that was, after having sat in federal court for 8 days and listen to the piece of shit attorneys liken us to the russian military and refer to us as inhumane garbage, that even some police would still take her side and ask questions of the police involved.
    Let's clarify a few things first. These so called heroes of the neighborhood held Brogan in a full nelson head lock while other pieces of shit disarmed her unconscious partner. The plaintiff after first claimimg to be a hero was later implicated by a witness as the individual in question holding Brogan in the full nelson headlock. This witness, later recanted his entire statement at 26th street and to make a long story short, it was thrown out.
    Next, a states attorney from felony review took a handwritten and signed statement from this plaintiff as well as a polaroid picture of the full nelson used on Brogan which was all evidence!! And while we are on the topics of handwritten statements, let's also talk about the one the witness wrote along with and signed with that same states attorney. This same witness who yes, recanted his story like the piece of shit he is.
    Oh by the way, the police who u second guess, on scene that night, not only got the scumbag who took the officer's gun, but also arrested the uncle of that same piece of shit trying to sell it at a nearby factory for dope money!!
Pretty much the same story? Facts mostly consistent throughout? And almost none of this made it to the jury. But cops know exactly what happened, what didn't make the papers, what the jury wasn't permitted to see. Or if they were, they just didn't care.

And people question why morale is in the shitter?

"Officer Brogan's attempt to jail a woman who rescued her and the detectives that encouraged Brogan to do so reflects the integrity of the Chicago Police Department," said Daniel Alexander, lead attorney representing Rachelle.

This whole pile of crap is premised on a Chicago Police Officer wanting to arrest a woman who helped her? Right, because the first thing the big-bad-police do after getting into an accident is look to arrest someone who helped them.

Way to destroy our country piece by piece you fucking Marxists. These lawyers don't even believe their own crap, but they sure are good at fooling morons.

I've been a south side cop my whole career and recently have had the chance to work in a north side district and i almost can't believe the difference.

It's like working in a completely different city. Most of the people actually like the police and respect us up there. There's no where near the amount or level of savages as the south side. These north side cops complain about having to work a "tough" beat, when that same beat on the south side would be the easiest one in the district.

I have to say, the caliber of policeman on north side though is sad. A lot of them really have no idea what they're doing and turn easy arrests into clusters. Many of them have never seen a gun or made more than a handful of narcotic arrests even after years and years on the job. I don't really mean to knock them for this, it's just the way it is. That stuff is very hard to come by up north and south it practically jumps in your car. It also seems to me that many of these north side cops don't really know how to talk to the public very well and make quick sharp decisions on what course of actions to take. I think this comes with the lack of having to deal with the amount of calls like south, and the level of savages on the south side that would think nothing of punching you in the face if you "disrespect" them in front of thier hommies. So you learn south to be able to deal with and talk your way out of many situations and possible fights.
And what really gets me are these north side cops (many tact guys) that walk around the station like they are the shit. I just sit there and laugh at how pathetic they are. They think they are such bad asses b/c they yell at a yuppie that won't yell back. Or arrest a guy for a joint and feel the need to tell everyone in the station that they "got another arrest tonight." They are so cocky it's sometimes sickening. And to see them come into work in plain clothes, but dressed in $100 jeans and polo shirts with thier hair gelled to perfection in attempt to pick up/hit on any and all women they see during the tour i think they forget that they are POLICE. It's like they're dressed to go to a club, but just with a vest over the outfit. Pretty funny actually.

These are just some observations i've made in my short time on the north side.
I really think that all recruits should have to do some time south/west to really learn this job and know what many of these people on the street are capable of.
And i really encourage the south side cops to try a year up north to see how nice it really can be. The businesses treat you well and the community enjoys seeing you drive down thier streets.
One big negative though i've noticed is that since there isn't much going on in the realm of policework, the bosses are much much more nit picky with everything. Your uniform, reports, meets, logs, etc.. You just want to say sometimes "hey, leave me the f*ck alone." Don't you have anything better to worry about than if i'm supposed to wear my sweater with the cargo pants!?
So that kind of sucks. But i'll take it to not have to deal with 8 hours of backlogs and domestic after domestic.

Anyway, so far my verdict is that the south/west side police are far far superior in police knowledge and capabilities and i don't think many of these north side cops would last a week down there dealing with the worst this city has to offer for 8 hours a day and 6 days straight. They complain about how bad they have it up north but have no idea how bad it could be (south/west side every day every tour).
Change can be good guys and a few more minutes on the expressway to enjoy your 8 hour tour isn't too bad a trade off.

Time for a legal benefit for Brogan to sue that piece of shit. Oh wait, she can't be a fucking animal because she is a nurse....Has anyone on that jury ever been to a nursing home? Secondly, I always hear of celebrities suing foreign press for libel. Read the article on this case on Second city Sarge. It read, 'The, Officer Brogan changed her story and lied to the court about this incident." (or something that bad!) Sue the shit out of them if she can. Fuck this city. Fuck this County, Fuck this State. The police are the only ones being portrayed as criminals and are the only ones who aren't (minus a few jag offs that make us look bad---less than .01 %)

Citizens of Chicago just don't realize that shit like this and worse happens everyday in the city. I really wish I had the time to drive around the city and record what really goes on in the city and post it on you tube. I think if they could see first hand what’s really going on we could change allot hearts and minds.

The only people who would be questioning the reasons why morale is so fucked are the ignorant and the corrupted, both of which have no business being the police and both of which are part of the cause of low morale.

Ignore the ignorant and expose the corrupted.

Any who wish to learn can learn, and any who wish to reject and denounce corruption can, should they choose, take the opportunity of this place in time to do so.

In spite of all ignorant perspectives to the contrary, there are still more than enough honest people to turn the tide.

I came on this job in 75,and I'm ending it this year.The police work that I was taught and that I worked for,for 25+ years would have gotten myself and my partner indicted before our tour ended.

You younger officers,even though most of you look at us as dogs,remember we've been where your at now.It's not worth it anymore,trust me on this I've been there.
Do your 8 hours,6 days a week and go home to your family.
You'll never have the pleasure of working for the stand up bosses that I did,it was a pleasure coming to work,the camaradire (sp?)was there and the bosses backed their men.
Those days are gone,and I seriosly doubt you'll ever see them again.
So do what you have to do,but no more than necessary.The stuttering midget gives a rats ass about you,your nothing but a liability to him.Give him the same respect that he gives to you,"NOTHING".write the paper,get your b/s event numbers,and go home to your loved ones.

Yes I'm from a northside district and no never had to work the southside. Thank God!

1st: sorry it took so much time for you to come to your senses. Or is it you just got enough time to bid out of the shit-hole.

2nd: You hero southsiders always talk a good game about what great police you are. Well I've seen many come to my district and not know anything more than dope. Big deal (like you said)the shit jumps in your car at every corner. If you are so good, why don't you show the northsiders in your new dist how to do something? Would it be that since shit ain't happenening on every corner like the southside, that you would actually have to do "real" police work? You know, actually have to look for it. I've have honestly seen some of these hero cops(southsiders) not no how to do a simple arrest. If it isn't dope they have no clue.

3rd: I don't know what dist you are at, but as far as talking to people. Man you southsiders take the cake. You don't know how to talk to a person and treat them like a person. You still think you are dealing with J/Os.

So finally, I must say we are all the police. Too bad you and your fellow southsiders don't see it as that.

Well Mista SCC

Sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you. Unfortunately cops in the Chicago area have gotten a reputation some say deservedly so of being corrupt , venal, and racist. Maybe if the Burge incidents had never happened, if Sgt Herman had never been convicted of rape/kidnapping, if John Galligan and his partner J.M were never arrested things would be different. Perhaps if members of the federal jury pool chosen from throughout Northern Illinois (in other words not an OJ jury) hadn't heard of Pacman, hadn't seen Herrera on 60 minutes, maybe they would have questioned this entire incident and not relieved the tax dollars of 7.5 million tax dollars. The Police can bitch all day long but as long as we have the Abbates and the Cozzis engaging in blatant brutality and unprofessional conduct, people from the Altgeld Gator Gardens ghetto all the way to Winnetka are going to believe that the defenders of law and order are actually Phillistines and jack booted thugs. When you have a former police officer named Patricia Hill denouncing her brethern in blue all day long it will be hard to get that crucial public trust and respect. And please who will believe the police when on the Chicago Reader webpage you can see a Chicago police officer (since promoted to detective) basically murder an unarmed man. Come on SCC tell me how you all gonna earn the public's trust?

God Bless the honest but silent majority of cops who defend the citizenry every day without fanfare

Do you honestly think that the one little disclaimer makes the rest of your spite filled rant any less of an attack?

" And what really gets me are these north side cops (many tact guys) that walk around the station like they are the shit..... They are so cocky it's sometimes sickening."
Actually after reading your post, you seem to be the one with the chip on your shoulder.
You will find that there are softballs wherever you go, north, south, out of state, basically everywhere. But more often than not, there are good cops who do their jobs professionally in those same places. So what if it takes someone a little longer to process something, the end result is the same, dirtbag in jail.
Grow up. Whats really pathetic is that you have such a need to feel superior that you publicly berate your fellow cops just to satisfy your ego. This whole north/south issue has been played out before and the results are always the same, it makes us all look bad. There is no north or south chicago plolice department, just CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT.

We need you to restore our neighborhoods back to what they once were. We are sick of our properties going down in value.

Besides, Seiser can't do it all by himself anymore!

**********************************

All sarcasim aside, you sound like the biggest stroke to work this job in a long time. You probably don't even have a "working day" furlough yet! Go back to the south side you egotistical jag-off!

Oh!..and one more thing "Mr. Southside real police jagoff" before you make a general statement about all northside cops not having a clue about police work, let me remind you that the most highly decorated cop in the history of CPD (Bill Jaconetti)work the northside almost his entire career. Tell him to his face he ain't shit, he'll mop the floor with you you smug little bitch!

The only true thing about your entire post was about there being less savages' on the north side (your phrase not mine)of which you had no control. But I'm sure you'll take credit for by claiming you came up north and singlehandedly reduced the number of black males populating your beat by taking all the good police skills you learned on the southside from Jon Burge and crew and applied here up north!

Your parents teach you how to wear your white hood properly too! Did they teach you how to keep the double-wide trailer on the southside nice and neat too!

I'm done busting balls now rookie!

Off the subject, I was out last night Friday 14 JUN by Milwaukee & Western around 0100 hours. I'm assuming it was a 014 tact car...but they stop a young M/2 on a bicycle.

After they left I asked the kid & he says he was stopped for making a bad turn & told that some other bikers died in the past week. Big deal!

Hello 014...Puerto Rican fest! Didn't you notice?! Shitheads EVERYWHERE...ALL NIGHT!

Get your head outta your ass! While you were stopping that kid I saw 4 different cars you shoulda put a stop on!

The only people who would be questioning the reasons why morale is so fucked are the ignorant and the corrupted, both of which have no business being the police and both of which are part of the cause of low morale.

So you are the reason for the low morale? Good of you to finally admit it.

Ignore the ignorant and expose the corrupted.

Nice sound bite, comrade.

Any who wish to learn can learn, and any who wish to reject and denounce corruption can, should they choose, take the opportunity of this place in time to do so.

"Take the opportunity of this place in time?" Are you trapped in a time-machine on Planet Bullshit? Christ.

In spite of all ignorant perspectives to the contrary, there are still more than enough honest people to turn the tide.

The problem ain't with the CPD. Problem is there aren't enough honest citizens in this sewer of a city to turn any tide, much less agree on how to turn it even if they could.

Remember, the day is always darkest before the dawn.

Unless the dawn will be an atomic bomb going off in your head. Appreciate the pep talk though, really lifted my soul...

You need to grow up and look at yourself in the mirror, it's guys like you that are the down-fall of this department.

For anyone who thinks that it was just because it was 2 female cops, get your head out of your ass. I was in the acad with Kristin, Kelly's partner that night. I guess she had an epiphany and realized that this may not be the job for her after a very traumatic event. Remember, Englewood has lot's of predators that someone from 23 or 20 may NEVER have to be confronted with.

Chicago and police officers lose case and $7.7 million for false arrest

A trained nurse, Rachelle Jackson immediately ran toward the sound of the crash. A Chicago police car had collided with another vehicle and was starting to smoke, two officers still inside. Fearing an explosion, she quickly pulled one officer from the passenger side.She never imagined her act of kindness nearly six years ago would land her in jail for more than 10 months on charges that she robbed, battered and disarmed a peace officer.

What Burge incidents? No one was ever tried or convicted of anything Burge was alleged to have done. In fact, the only "evidence" ever in the public eye was the so-called black box that was put together by the People's Law Office. Did you understand that? Defense lawyers CREATED and MANUFACTURED evidence by which to support multi million dollar lawsuits.

As for Herman, again, the public never got to hear that he was a freak - he liked the working girls and in fact supported this particular girl for a number of years before she got wise and set him up.

The other crooked cops can rot in hell. They brings dishonor to us all and disgrace the star. And don't you dare use Pat Hill as an example. She resigned under a cloud after refusing a drug test and was a racist piece of shit for decades.

I've worked all but one of the areas in the city. You are wrong and you damn well know it. A police officer can get hurt and even murdered anywhere in the USA. However, it's exponentially more likely to occur in certain areas of the city.

Unless and until you've worked the streets of districts like 007 amd 011, you have no clue about the inherent hazards of being the REAL police.

I tend to agree with 2:10 PM. If you work north, fine--just as long as you "paid your dues" on the streets of the West and South Sides.

We are talking about parallel universes. There is little comparison aside from wearing the same uniform.

Don't try to deny it and sling bullshit to the contrary. Police in high violent crime districts have more in common with NYPD officers working the South Bronx, Harlem and the bloodiest precincts in Brooklyn.

Couldn't aggree more. I, on the other hand, started my career in a northside district and worked my way south through the years.
There are some decent guys up north but have not been through the jungle as southside police have. Northside districts are great places for old timers who have put in their time in the ghetto. But of course many of easy north districts are filled with hair-gelled clout babies.

I'm the original "southside" poster.
I really didn't mean to be putting down the north side cops. There are definitely some very good ones and hard working ones. Also, some very nice genuine people that i've come to be-friend up here.
But these were just some general observations i've been making.
Also, my reference to "savage" was not indicative of a race of people, it was the mentality i was getting at. There are black, hispanic and white savages (englewood, pilson, cannaryville) that all seem to dwell on the south/west sides. These same races exist on the north side, but they aren't the same "savages" as the ones south. So that was not meant to be a racist term or to isolate one race as one poster assumed.

What i was saying that bothered me was these guys that think the are the shit up here for making a simple arrest. These arrests are made all day long south so for these guys to parade around the station looking for glory for thier misdemenor arrest is ridiculous. I feel embarresed for some of them.

Another point i was trying to make was that it's really like working in a differnt city up there. The citizens are different, the bosses are different and the po's are different.
Some of the things i've seen have bewildered me. Am i wrong to expect a fellow cop with 10 years on to be able to do simple arrests? I mean come on. Even the laziest southside cops at least seem to know how to do thier job and what paper work is needed. When you have a narcotic arrest and the person starts filling out a general offense... i mean really?
That's what i'm trying to say. There's too many up there that still after 10+ years on really don't know how to do this job and it's kind of sad.
And to the guys that have done thier time south, believe me, it shows. You can tell in a second just by the way you handle a scene and talk to the people. It's stuff that you can't tell people to teach them, they have to be there themselves to experience it and really trully learn how to do this job. I'm not faulting you one bit for moving north, and in fact i'm one of you now. I've worked with a few of you already and loved it. At least i know i'm dealing with a competent partner that has my back at all costs.

Believe me, i'm true blue and fly like hell to any car that asks for help. I don't care if we just had it out in rollcall an hour ago, i'd be the first person on that scene helping you out b/c we are a team and we are all we got out there.
I'm sorry if i offended some of you northsiders, but i just felt i needed to put some of them in thier place and make them recognize that these arrests that they think are sooooo great happen all day long down south. And it's easy to yell and belittle a yuppie or someone that you know won't do anything about it. But try talking that way to some of these savages down south and see how it goes over.
I still stand by my original thought though, that with few exceptions, most northside cops couldn't hold a candle to even mediocre south side ones. It's just the truth.

My thoughts exactly.
And to prove it, i've got under 10 years on and am no ball of fire by any means and i have already been the victim of numerous agg bats to PO of which one i thought i was going to lose an eye. I treat everyone with respect out there too, but these people down south and out west just don't give a shit at all. You can't help but end up fighting for you life a few times a year, even on just simple traffic stops and seemingly simple arrests.
So you north side cops that think a guy is an asshole arrestee b/c he talks back to you or doesn't immediately give you his other hand for the cuff. YOU HAVE NO CLUE!!
Try arresting a guy that is high as hell and just stabbed his relative etc.. and can't wait for you to arrive to give him another warm body to fight with. And then once you do get him corraled and into the station he spits all over the place and piss's all over the place and tell's your captain to eat shit.
These are everyday occurances down there and out west that you might encounter once in your northside career, if that.
I don't think i'm a better person that any of you, but i damn well KNOW that i'm a better police officer. You can say all you want, but that threat level up there is nothing compared to the southside.

I have to say, the caliber of policeman on north side though is sad. A lot of them really have no idea what they're doing and turn easy arrests into clusters. Many of them have never seen a gun or made more than a handful of narcotic arrests even after years and years on the job. ....

South sider, you're an idiot. No doubt a 5 yr. wonder, because men with seniority do not talk like you and have class toward all policemen. If you only knew how stupid you really sound. At least you gave us all a good laugh. Stay south brother, you're doin a fine job.

I hope I can become as good a cop as you some day. You're my hero. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to work with you and learn your great techniques and policing skills. I hope to become as arrogant and stupid too!

I don't know much about the northside as I am working in 006. I do know that 006 is filled with blowhards and total pussies! Does any copper in 006 work anymore? WTF! I have been in some very dangerous situations and have sadly realized that due to j-fed scaring coppers all the time, nobody has my back out in the street. 006 is horrible! Soon as I can bid out, I'm gone!!!
006 is not tough or hardcore as they try to make it seem. They (po's) run the other direction when a copper needs help. Backup sucks on my 3rd watch. Guys are afraid to put their hands on badguys now. Worried about lawsuits and crs. Be glad you work up north where you will likely live longer and happier. I'll join you as soon as I get the chance.

Sorry, I work there too and I don't see peope going the other way on jobs or calls for help, I will agree that people are afraid to put their hands on people but that's citywide, as far as it being tough or hardcore, come on! if you really work there you know how bad this shithole is, everyone and I mean everyone I talk to want to leave as soon as possible, nobody stays if they can help it, especially supervisors, and who can blame them, 006 is super busy and a shithole!

Don't try to deny it and sling bullshit to the contrary. Police in high violent crime districts have more in common with NYPD officers working the South Bronx, Harlem and the bloodiest precincts in Brooklyn.

Simmer down real police, it isn't that serious, get over yourself, whenever you hear people talking about being the real police, they usually aren't and just because you are assigned somewhere busy doesn't mean you work...

Anything hanging from the rearview mirror (LIKE YOU GOOFS THAT ADVERTISE BY PUTTING A CHECKERBOARD HATBAND IN THE MIRROR) ? P.C.

Maybe someone should think about doing a little investigating of the witness that recanted. Since the "nurse" has already been acquited that is a dead end, but the possibility of Obstruction of Justice or Perjury against the witness exists. I would want check spending habits, bank accounts, lifestyle etc. I know it is the ghetto, but even there people leave trails.

If something was discovered soon enough, it may even be able to affect the judgement.

I no longer live anywhere near Illinois, or I might consider it myself.

Fuck you all and shit for thinking 006 has backup! He could have been seriously hurt. I can name a handful of crazee mofos on 3rd watch who i know would have my back. That's it.

Former Deuce Dynamo SAYS.....
Hey bro I worked the deuce (002), GCS (742), and was detailed to IAD doing really boring stuff before becoming an 1811 Federal Criminal Investigator. Sherwood Williams and Chuck Williams thought working in IAD would give me investigative experience before moving on. I can't comment negatively on Northside cops but I can say being a cop on the southside prepared me to become a very competent street smart federal criminal investigator and work in New York City for many years before promoting and coming back to Chicago. As a result of my skills developed on the mean streets of the deuce I was able to bring sage knowledge to my fellow attendees at the CI course in Glynco. At advanced courses at Quantico as a rare fed attendee at the NA class, I had street cred with a diverse group of coppers as a result of my experiences with the CPD. Southsider you are a kindred spirit. Stay safe and ride/shoot straight/ speak the truth.

I've got a secret for police who have only worked the North Side.

After years working the West and South Sides, I too now work the North Side. There are many others guys working north that paid their dues in the ghetto.

If I learn that you've always worked north, I may have a smile on my face for you and bite my tongue offering no comment. However, I immediately think clueless "pussy police."

If everybody paid their dues in fast districts at some time in their careers, this subject would no longer fester.

The greatest outrage is when they promote house mice and play police and have them supervise veterans in fast districts. We laugh at them with contempt behind their backs.

The moral of the story is EVERYBODY PAY YOUR DUES!

If you want educated average Joes who can be on your juries, then you need to stop pissing all over the public education system like I read on here 24/7 because you can't have it both ways. If people are animals and not worth a dime of your taxes to educate, then you are going to get your cases judged by "animals".

Wake up and smell it - we're all in the same sinking boat. White flight won't help, demonization won't help, guilt-by-association won't help...these are like a shot of morphine to ease the pain, but to cure the cancer we need to create one society that people feel like they have a stake in.

South side poster. Here is a tip for your "southside ranger" notebook.

No amount of arguing or reasoning with you will convince you that you may not be the best or greatest cop on the department.

So keep going to bed at night safely tucked in, wearing your super hero PJs, while us Northsiders keep doing our dog and pony show.

Lastly, please note in your loose-leaf, that "thier" is actually spelled their. I mean look at it. It doesn't even look right spelled t-h-i-e-r. It's not like it's a long or complicated word. It's one used commonly, every single day.

Anyway, so far my verdict is that the south/west side police are far far superior in police knowledge and capabilities and i don't think many of these north side cops would last a week down there dealing with the worst this city has to offer for 8 hours a day and 6 days straight. They complain about how bad they have it up north but have no idea how bad it could be (south/west side every day every tour).
Change can be good guys and a few more minutes on the expressway to enjoy your 8 hour tour isn't too bad a trade off.

I am northsider but worked around a bit.

Totally agree with you on all accounts but What is your point here?

So men and women work north so men and women work west and south!

I have seen cockiness and STUPIDITY everywhere bothe north south (SOUTH)EAST and west! Screwballs are everywhere!

Fact is you can BID and move your self and or family wherever you want. You want to live with the CRAP work with CRAP see crap BE CRAP! You can choose to.

One can argue that to execute on the Northside and bring in any amount of drugs or weapons is fine police work due to that it does not stick out and jump in a car.

There are many schoold of thought to policing and I would rather work north than south or west rigvht now at this juncture in this climate anyway!

Cases are getting tossed we are being scrutinized for everything NORTH SOUTH EAST OR WEST! Proactivity is non-existent, morale and arrests are low so who really cares about COMPARING police and locations and types of work right now.

I just want to protect my 016th District neighborhood right now and I do not work there but wish I did! I can bid like anyone else and I may just do that soon.

So everyone should work where they live right now if they could ........I think it makes the most sense!

I am writing this in regards to the "MR ANONYMOUS" who stated that he saw a 14th district tact car stop a young m/2 on his bicycle Friday 14 Jun at 0100 hrs at Milwaukee & Western......
Well first off let me start by saying that yes, my partner and I were the ones that stopped the poor ignorant yuppie m/2 on his bicycle on "Sat 14 Jun" at 0100 hrs., more like 0130 hrs.....but anyways...... not Fri 13 Jun at 0100 hrs....... couldn't help but notice that you posted on 14 Jun at 1150 hrs fucktard......were you that shit faced from drinking at the bars at North & Damen that you couldn't remember what day it was? I think you may have a drinking problem, maybe that is why (I'm assuming you're a cop???) you didn't come up to us and ask why we stopped the poor "kid"(he was 28 ) on the bicycle, maybe if you would've asked us we could've told you that we were following two shitbirds in a silver tahoe east bound on Armitage when Mr. m/2 on his bicycle decided to disregard the red light on Milwaukee and nearly make me splatter his ass all over my windshield...... Maybe you could've asked us why we weren't at the Puerto Rican fest...... and we could've told you that it ended at 2300 hrs, and that the tact and gang teams and everybody else detailed to the fest had already swept the park and the surrounding areas clean after chasing out the pieces of shit "cobras" "mlds" and "kings" and that we were released at 0100 hrs.. Then maybe you could have inquired as to why when it was so close to check off..... and after dealing with Puerto Rican fest and gang banging pieces of shit all week....... why on Gods green earth would we take the time out to stop some m/2 yuppie on his bicycle that I almost killed with my squad car because he chose to not obey the traffic laws and stop at the red light on Milwaukee ,and let 2 shitbirds slip away? Well
