History to Repeat Itself

  • DENVER (KJCT) -- A new kind of warning has come up about protesters gearing up for the Democratic National Convention.

    Denver firefighters have learned of a house full of urine being stored to throw at police. An internal memo is warning first responders that disgusting acts are a significant concern.

    Protesters in other cities have used urine and feces filled balloons to throw at police and there are concerns that could happen during the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

Democrats sold their souls in the late 1960's giving the idiots a voice at the convention. Now these people think they control the levers of power when all they really do is cheapen the debate and make the rest of the party look like idiots. Here's a little reminder to Denver how to handle this sort of behavior:
We look forward to having that part of history repeat itself.

Large quantities of urine can also be used to make bombs. A uric acid bomb was used in the first WTC bombing. Don't always disregard these materials collected in homes as the mark of a weirdo. Stay safe.

Denver's fucked.

Among their various standing orders, there's only one guy who can give the order to deploy gas in a riot situation.

Not the watch LT. Not the SWAT Cmdr. Not the district captain. Not the Chief. Not even the Manager of Public Safety.

The mayor, only. Does even Mumbles McShortshanks insist on that? Well, I mean, would he insist on that if he weren't out of town?

That's because, a few years ago, the football teams from the U. of Colorado and Colorado State played each other at Mile High, and the fans rioted. DPD uncorked the gas just like you would expect, and the college students whined like a bunch of whiny bitches with clouted mommies and daddies.

There's actually a group called "Re-Create 68" that has a spokesman, who says that local ordinances against carrying buckets of piss on the street downtown aren't about public safety but only about making people afraid of his group.

SCC You are dead wrong even though this is your blog! The Democrats opened up in the 1960's in order to broaden the American Political Discourse to include asians, poor whites, women, latinos, and blacks. That has been good for America. We would not have had a Colin Powell, Condaleeza Rice or a Barrack Obama if the Democratic Party had not opened its doors to diversity. The Chicago Police Department according to all rational voices and actual witnesses engaged in an orgy of wanton and illegal violence against Americam citizens during the 1968 Democratic Convention. People around the world were disgusted by the spectacle of police officers attacking the media, innocent civilians, and others who were defenseless and in the wrong place at the wrong time. I am so glad to have seen Barrack Obama received so well during his tour of Europe and the Middle East. America can now be seen at its greatest instead of its lowest points such as the police riot at the democratic convention. Get ready SCC its Obama Time.

Both yet to be outdone by any Chicago team following them.

About six years ago, I was having breakfast with my family in a restaurant in Oak Park. At a nearby table there were these three old bearded hippie dudes; they had to have at least 180-190 years between them. They must have been hard of hearing because they were laughing and talking pretty loud.

They were talking about their trip to the G8 Summit in Montreal Canada. If you recall the stories from that the city was in a total riot meltdown. Downtown Montreal was in shambles, fires everywhere, police officers, police horses and civilians deliberately injured by protesters.

These guys went on to say that went up there in advance, mapped out the area and planned which locations, mostly banks they would attack. They propositioned piles of rock, had their backpacks full of more rocks and had disguises and tear-away clothing. They had escape routes planned and fake IDs if they were arrested and would demand to be taken to a hospital if they were arrested.

They were real proud of how they tore up that most European of American cities. They were not there to protest anything, to them this was sport.

Stay safe, remember that there are enemies like this out there. They care not for any good that may come from the act of protest, but for the joy of destruction.

I disagree. I 14 and was in the Loop during the convention. Taken to dinner by adults with friends. We wanted to see what all the commotion was and "somehow" ended up in the park. The front line "citizens" were JAGS and the police did what they had to do to control them. The crowds in the back were much like myself...just there to see what was going on and actually having a good time. And no negative interaction with the police. Yes, we did get gassed, but our fault for being where we didn't belong. 1968 Police were awesome, my brother was one! And none of us have ever had to actually handle what they did then.

Are you kidding me SCC, are you suggesting that a heavy handed approach to civil disobedience like '68 in Chicago is the way to police in 2008? Can you imagine bashing heads with batans, water cannons, and tear gas deployed on the Democrats in the modern era?

Excuse me for laughing out loud at you, but really this must have been a moment of weakness.

The way to handle these things today is to let the animals tear it up so that the whole world can see just how fucked up these idiots are. Let them make their bed and then let them sleep in it also.

I thinkg the logical solution is to throw this thing in a liberal hot bed like oh.... I don't know..... how about Detroit. Yes, that would be perfect, invite all the liberal democrats to Detroit, then invite all their constituents there, provide the gasoline, guns, piss and shit then back away and let them do what the do best....tear it up.

It's really a perfect solution, we get rid of thousands of people that hate this country, further divide their party and we don't even have to clean the shithole city up afterward. Think of the savings on city services, security etc.

Perfect.

Funny thing about that is, the 1968 Chicago cops were the cheese eating surrender monkeys who surrendered this city to the savages until economic forces turned the tide in the 90s.

If the buffoons from the 60s had held the line, none of you would have to hide out in the last little civilized corners of the city in 016 and 022.

Believe it or not, Chicago once had between 500000 and 1000000 more residents. Chicago once voted for Republican mayors. There was a great city called Chicago before the Daleys started wrecking it.

As one who wore the white stripe along the sides of my trousers in 1968 I offer but one suggestion for my brother Officers in Denver - Fuck 'Em! If one of them gets in your face kick the living shit of him or her. Don't allow what happened to us in 68 happen to you. Who gives a rats ass is Chris Matthews, Catie Couric, or some other media asshole is filiming you. Don't give in one inch.

As far as I'm concerned the proudest day of my career was when we took back Michigan Ave. from those assholes. And for you Walter Cronkite if by some strange happenstanch you read this post - Go Fuck Yourself. I visited New York twice before I retired and on each ocassion I prayed I'd run into that asshole Cronkite. I would have loved to have walked up to him and spit right in his face and ask him how he liked it. I would have asked him if he would turn the other cheek as he suggested we should have. Who knows maybe the jag will retire to Florida and I'll have my chance.

I have been putting up with the Sun Times constant praising Obama as the new coming of Christ. The article by Lynn Sweet on July 25, 2008 is a complete lie.

The German people cheered when he claimed to the crowd that he did not look like an American. He looked and talked anti-American and that is why the Germans cheered Obama. He kept yelling about tearing down walls that don’t exist. Ronald Reagan took care of the real thing years ago, and he isn’t a Ronald Reagan.

When he mentioned “American mistakes” the crowd cheered again. When he mentioned that the Germans just might help out a little bit to fight terrorism the gutless German supporters went silent, didn’t hear a word out of them until he went anti-American again.

The crowd gathered because the handlers had two supposed top rock bands before the speech, that is what they came to see just like they did in Portland Ore. before his other large crowd. They heard the music and got, a bonus of a whole lotta of anti-America blab which those people love.

This 10 day world high school tour is not going to help Obama much, it is just propaganda which went over big in Germany during the 1930 and 40s by another speaker who had charisma.

Open a history book dimwit. Or just google "Bulls Championships."

What reason did any of the animals have to riot? They were happy, their team won, so why?

The only reason, was to get something else for free.

Whatever you couldn't carry, eat or drink, destroy. Typical mutts.

So stir up trouble, I think not. For any coppers that weren't on the job then, if Obama wins, watch out for the celebration (City of Chgo and media speak for riots)

If he loses, well no need to make excuses here, it's just an excuse to get more free stuff. Act all "despondent and shit. You know..."

CPD reinforced my value of right and wrong. shitheads wrong-CPD right. at that time, i decided i wanted to be CPD.(it was the winning team as somone previously said) it was a great memory and a great recruitment tool. never worked out for me but probably worked out for the best because of my rage issues. don't know how you guys do it but there are large numbers of us who support you now as we did then. problem is we don't live in the city (or county) anymore for obvious reasons. high probability dumbocrats will behave badly in denver and we will all wax nostalgic.

Years ago, my then girlfriend and I drove to NYC. I made a "misdrive" in Greenwich Village and was pulled over by the NYPD. As his partner waited next to their RMP, the officer asked to see my driver's license.

I opened my wallet and my CPD star gleamed in the sun as I removed my DL. The officer asked "what's that?".

When I explained, he shouted back to his partner. "Hey, Vinnie! He's a Chicago coppah."

Both told me "Youse guys were great during the (1968) Democratic Convention. We watched you on TV."
Obviously, these officers were unrepentant proponents of well-deserved "wood shampoos".

They insisted that we join them for lunch--on them--at an Italian restaurant in the Village. Great guys! They refused to let me pay our end. I left a very generous tip for our waitress.

They even called a Queens pct. where we were set up at a nice, yet inexpensive, hotel, courtesy of a large NYPD discount.

My heart goes out to you vested guys that can't make a career change and must suffer Daley's clusterfuck!

As a member of a tact team through the 60s riots, I thank you for the kind comments. It was truly a great time to be the police. I found the Democratic convention to be the easiest of all of them but of course it had the most media. Remember no one was killed during the convention. Not so with the other riots. I'm all for "re-create 68" I'm sure that a few of us old guys would like another crack at them (they are the same bad guys)they just look different. As for the CAPS guy in 15 well kid, I don't think you were there. I hope all of you "real" police get the chance we did.

since when do american citizens have to ask permission of government to peacefully assemble?

How about common sense? Yes, you do not need permission from your govenment to peacefully assemble but would you do it a railroad crossing? How about in the middle of Lake Shore Drive at rush hour?

Just where does individual rights end and common sense begin?

This message has been written by a Tax Paying West Citizen from with no arrest record who is a Top Flight DHS/TSA Screener and also a Proud CAPS Volunteer in the Austin District (015) studying criminal justice at a community college.Thats right I know my rights and responsibilities as a citizen of this great country.

TSA screener huh? Gee, I wonder how you feel when you have some traveler screaming in your face when you are just "enforcing" your rules? Oh right.......you just call for the Chicago Police Officer working the airport.

CAPS volunteer? Oh blimey! And on the West side to boot! Tell me, how many of the poor unfortunates that live out that way have you had the pleasure of inviting into your home?

Studying Criminal Justice ! Well, how long before you graduate? We need educated people like you to help stem the tide of violence. I'm sure when you are armed with that diploma you will be a formidable force to reckon with. So lets make a date, sometime in the future, once you graduate you can apply for this job and start applying all your aquired classroom knowledge in such places as DOMESTIC CALLS, or a simple MAN WITH A GUN call. I'm sure you will put us all to shame when you show us how this job should REALLY be done.

Um, peaceful assembly? Why do you think they were called the " '68 riots?" At what point in time were they peaceful? Just another typical democratic slug. And BTW, you throw feces at me and camera or not, fuck the asp, you're getting a wood shampoo.

The convention will come and go without a whimper. Obama WILL be our next President. There will be no riots. Quit trying to spread panic and get used to the idea of CHANGE

The rioters this time will be white folks.

Oh shut the fuck up! My cousin was a hippie and he tried to talk me into going and I didn't because I knew it was going to be trouble. They knew they were going to create trouble. And it ended up being fucking trouble.

Now go away you fucking numbskull.

SCC You are dead wrong even though this is your blog! The Democrats opened up in the 1960's in order to broaden the American Political Discourse to include asians, poor whites, women, latinos, and blacks. That has been good for America. We would not have had a Colin Powell, Condaleeza Rice or a Barrack Obama if the Democratic Party had not opened its doors to diversity. The Chicago Police Department according to all rational voices and actual witnesses engaged in an orgy of wanton and illegal violence against Americam citizens during the 1968 Democratic Convention. People around the world were disgusted by the spectacle of police officers attacking the media, innocent civilians, and others who were defenseless and in the wrong place at the wrong time. I am so glad to have seen Barrack Obama received so well during his tour of Europe and the Middle East. America can now be seen at its greatest instead of its lowest points such as the police riot at the democratic convention. Get ready SCC its Obama Time. PS Why don't you use your blog to stop Chicago Police Officers from being arrested every six months by the FEDS! WESTSIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your dead wrong even the left wing college proffesors at that time stated that the majority of Americans were sickened by the Leftist actions and the media through there bias were the ones pushing the BS story that Americans were outraged by the actions of the Police. The media is still biased none of these stories about Baracks religious mentors would have ever been written if he had not been running against a fellow liberal. Some of his other spiritual advisors as reported in numerous newspapers. Rev Al "Yamuka" Sharpton for starting the race riots in NY over a 80 year old Jewish resident that lost control of his car and god forbid struck a African American or his other spiritual friend Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson or as other people call him the King Of Beers, Jesse long ties to street gangs that he used for himself not to help the African American community.
