Gun Turn In Totals

6,000 weapons. A far cry from the 14,000 J-Fed wanted. As of this time, we haven't seen any count of actual weapons versus lookalikes.

And we doubt we'll ever see a count of functional versus rusted out junkers, but the highlight reel didn't show too many high quality firearms that we could see. We're sure there are one or two museum quality pieces worth ten or twenty thousand dollars - there always is. The rest might not even be worth their weight in the scrap steel they contained.

All the criminals in Chicago are having a good laugh at the city.

This was never a good idea, one can only hope that King Daley shelves this publicity stunt in the future.

Organized stupidity courtesy of Mumbles McShortshanks. Show us the numbers. You say you process all the firearms that are turned in. How many were used in crimes? You've been doing this for years. Show us the numbers you asshole.

Yeah, just what I thought.

I always laugh my @$$ off when I think about Ray Ray turning in an old Peacemaker for $100.00!

You can't breed retards of this calibur (pun intended) if you had the royal family at your disposal.

What was up with Father Pfleger, AKA: Farter Flatulence standing behind J-Fed at the press conference?

Gee,why don't they show a news photo of the actual junk guns that were turned in instead of the usual police photo of guns put on the display table rounded up from holsters of the officers?

How many of these guns were brought in by Shore's lackeys for those cards? That store usually does this every time a gun turn in goes on. They bring in old broken junk guns too, just like everybody else...

Holy Minority Report Batman!!!

Are they funda mentally retarded my Dear Watson?

If you wanted twice the amount of guns turned in...then offer twice the reward.

Just like a compulsive gambler...take the chance and give two hundred dollars per gun. You never know until you try...if you succeed you might get twice the guns at twice the price folks... peoples.

Tragically J-Fed ain’t suppressing any crime over this weekend from his ineffective crime fighting strategies. The community turned in another 6,000 guns off the streets....also yesterday a dozen or more persons shot...several murdered. Did the gun turn-in stop any of the “out-of-control” killing going on here in Chicago? I bet most people turning guns in aren't even gang bangers at all. Just regular folks not knowing what to do with grandfather's gun that’s been sitting in a closet collecting dust.

I hate peeing on the parade people...but I’m not jumping on this bandwagon. Instead of a weapons turn-in what about a Shooters Reward Program? How many felons are out there wanted for all these handgun murders? Do we have any bounty money for them? Why is it that our local criminal justice system doesn’t provide standard rewards for information leading to an arrest?

If you go to the Dept’s website each district publicizes their most wanted...I don’t see any reward money being offered for them.

How about a Bureau of Pre-Crime, an elite task force spearhead by one of our executive command staff members who handle the Tastee, they could use their predictive capabilities that a murder is going to happen before it takes place. Armed with that knowledge, they can arrest someone before he actually kills, saving the victims and preventing the crime?

I was listening to comments on AM780 radio yesterday...a guy said he turned in a 9mm pistol. Thats one less gun for the police to have to deal with. I just hope the guy doesnt end up needing it for protecting his family against a home invasion...

and those 2 or 3 museum quality guns are going to get burned just like the rest of them. Inspectors along with other various personnel accompany the weapons to the destruction site to ensure nothing disappears.

Give out a card and track them against the number of weapons turned in and it gets tough to pull the good ones.

Unless of course you bring your own shit gun to substitute in if you find a museum piece come by. That way the count stays in line with the missing credit cards and everything gets burned. Gotta do that on site tho and hope you get away with it.

The Photo Op Hollywood prop gusn from the Suepritnendents office usually include the same old AK-47 and Tec 9 semi-autos from the 80's, a couple semi-auto handguns and a few shorty old-time flare guns misrepped to be sawed offs. the shorty falre gun is kept in a case at CPD academy. They ain't got no REAL Class 3 Form 4 NFS stuff but want the stupids in Chitown to believe that they are battling it out with sophisticates who actually could spring $20K LARGE for full-auto "Stuff" (which require BATFE registration. The Daley slave CPD Supe just says wahtever Daley wants him to because he is getting 350K LARGE per year to lie.

That AK J-fed was holding looked just like the AK I took off the steet several weeks ago. It even had the bent release lever and the same gouges in the wood barrel cover. He had my initials covered with his hand.

One more photo op for King Richard II that does shit to reduce violent crime. How about this for an idea - let's off $200 for each SHOOTER turned in?

Oh wait - never mind. That might actually do something positive to help the poor folks in Shitcago but it doesn't provide many photo ops.

Can't have that. How would Fadder Snuffy or King Dick II get their ugly faces on the 10 PM news?

**Sounds like last year- folks came from some far away burb to bring in 6 guns. Who knows how many of these guns actually came from Chicago. So the tax payers of chicago even pay for those that live in Kentucky? WTF!!! We'll see if the crime rate goes down over the next few weeks because of the turn-in Ha Ha Ha

A 25-year-old man was fatally shot early Sunday in front of a residence on the South Side.

The man, identified as Thomas Williams, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office, was shot in the abdomen and possibly in the groin, an Englewood District officer said.

The shooting happened about 2 a.m. in the 5600 block of South Emerald Avenue.

Williams, of the 2000 block of W. 80th St., was pronounced dead at St. Bernard Hospital and Health Center at 3 a.m.

No shooter is in custody.

**Yep the gun turn in worked!

Friday night, Andy Shaw commented (on Chicago Tonight) that two guns from last year's turn-in were implicated in two homicides. He was pretty critical of the fact the chain of evidence is blown by this anonymous 'recovery' method.

He also cracked on Daley 'getting his own way' all the time and flat-out said the red-light cameras are there solely for bringing in revenue.

Methinks the blinders are coming off the media.

Lets not forget that this whole ball of wax is the fully owned product of the CAPS office. Little Lynette and Vance the Vain in charge there. Useless Lynette the toy policewoman promoted well beyond her ability by someone who is actually less experienced and shorter than her (Ronnie Huberman). Lets not forget ole Vance. Just another spy put in place by the westside Revs. Pieces of Shit Both!!!!

Lay off Police while we contiue to pay for this useless program - not. And while there at it stop paying for the bullshit TV show Crimewatch and making that ex TV anchor jag richer. This past week they spotlighted Lillie Crump-Hales of the 003rd District. What a fucking idiot. This useless piece of shit should'nt be driving a CTA bus yet alone commanding a police district.

I think the Supt. is just not well informed. His right hands, Mike Masters and Monique Bond, are both well spoken idiots who really don't know the police department. I'm not being mean, I am speaking the truth. Look at her background and his. Then he listens to Mike Shields because he is Monique Bond's guy and MM because he thinks he knows shit, because he graduated from Harvard. Harvard does not teach you about reality. He knows nothing about the inner city nor the police department. Mike Shields is a womanizer and knows how to play the political game. John Richardson and Hilliard is his clout. But come on, what has he done? You made him a Deputy Superintendent and his numbers that follow him are all shit. I worked for him when he was the Commander in 5. Our numbers were shit and the Lt.s and Captains hated him more than they did the biggest idiot on the whole entire police department, Commander Terry Williams. Even Cynthia White is liked better than him. Anyway, as Deputy Chief of Area Two, he had a fight with every one of his Commanders and he still did nothing to address crime. Then you make him head of a whole division. His Division let the Taste go to shit, but they want to blame that one on JJ and BC. What a waste, the CAR meetings. I sat through one. Mayor, come look at these idiots.

I would like to have a sit down with you Supt. I am retiring in a matter of months and have nothing to loose. Since I am a Sgt., you only sat with the P.O.'s, so I did not get the opportunity to tell you some real things you should think about. My 30+ years have come to an end, and to be honest, I don't want to leave Chicago. But at this rate, I will have to go.

I really think this was all set up to fail. Who do police fear, the FBI? Whenever we step in shit, who comes to get us? The FBI. Why put an FBI agent in charge of us? We all feel like we are in jail and under a microscope. As long as the Supt is in charge, subconsciously that is how we all feel and nobody or I should say, none of the ass kissing bosses has the balls to say it.
