Rifles on the Street

But unfortunately, not in the hands of police. From the comments:
  • Chalkie was in 011 this afternoon!
    "Units in 011 and ciytwide- Man shot in the head and chest with a .223 round- lots of calls coming in-Units use caution as you are out gunned".
Another comment describes the head of the deceased as sporting a rather large hole. If we aren't mistaken, a .223 will go completely through a vest and anybody wearing it. How many coppers did we have to bury in the 80's before we got semiautomatic pistols? And even then, the Department fucked that up beyond all comprehension

ATTENTION J-Fed, Bea, Mike and Jim and every other member of the Command Staff. Get off of your collective asses and get some fucking rifles and shotguns on the street. And spare us the bullshit about passing a "power test" to carry these guns. Find and qualify people to carry these guns on the street NOW.
  • Not tactical guys who are detailed out of their districts more often than you admitted to the aldercreatures and the press;
  • Not detectives closeted in the Areas with the guns tucked away in safes;
  • Not SWAT teams miles away from any sudden outburst of rifle fire;
  • Not the midnight Gang/Gun/Saturation teams or even the TRU people who work nights.
This shooting happened in broad daylight. Lord knows how many 10-99 units are working in 011 on days, but if it's anything like the rest of the City, it's a lot. And if some poor copper drives around the corner into a firefight involving rifles and all they have is a 9mm or a .45 pistol, we will make sure that every single citizen in this city knows that YOU sent them into harm's way over a bullshit physical fitness test that has ZERO to do with the ability to handle the appropriate tool for the job at hand.

And after that, we'll really start to make your life miserable.

SCC, you're as full of shit as any of the bosses. Who do you think created this new "power test" policy? If you're going to make someone's life miserable, fuck with the brain trusts who thought this shit up: Masters and Sgt. snake, of the Supt.s' "policy section." If you're going to blast anybody, those two should receive your first shots.

Face it SCC, the scared, nanny State "leaders" fear even more law suits that they'll pay out on if they properly equip us. Do you realize that every Park Ridge and Nile copper has an MP-5 in the trunk? God bless them, I hope they never have to use one, but how retarded is it that the corner-dealing free suburbs are properly armed and we get squirt guns?

I've said it before and clearly, it bears repeating:

It is a Dereliction of Duty by the Superintendent of Police to place officers in harm's way without the tools to defend themselves properly, namely: a Patrol Rifle in every squad car

The Patrol Rifle should be standard CPD Academy curriculum. Anything less is completely and utterly unacceptable

They don't care about you. You are a pawn in a game they're playing. They only care about how any attention will affect them and their careers. If it's useful to them, you'll get a rifle. If not, you're on your own.

All the bullshit meetings with you are only a sign that some kind of pressure was felt because of "de-policing" and that brings negative attention on them. They can't have that, so they try to trick you into thinking that they care.

Depending on the load, the .223 may or may not penetrate the vest. I know that most .223 hollowpoint or soft-point rounds will penetrate less than 9mm duty ammo.

Sad to say, but it'll probably take something like the 1997 North Hollywood bank robbery for us to get rifles. Maybe not even then; weren't Sgt. Severin and Officer Rizzato killed by rifle fire at Cabrini in 1970?

Don't jump the gun here, SCC (no pun intended)...the .223 casing(s) were found just outside dude's car when it came to rest...after he was shot well over 100 feet away, stepped on the gas, crashed into a pole and perspired (that's a little Stan Nowinski for ya!) The impact caved the front end of that old Chevy in pretty good, not to mention caused severe body trauma/disfigurement to dude's probably already dead body. Long story, short: the trauma/injury to boo-boo's head may not have neccessarily come from "a rifle", rather came from blunt force trauma when he impacted the pole. Let the ME and crime lab determine the exact causes and explanations. In the meantime
don't get everyone worked up over the fact that theres rifles on the streets of the ghettos. Always have been. Sure, be cautious and vigiliant, but don't start panic-mode. I'll bet any money that that casing(s) have been on that scene from (minimum) 4th of July, maximum New Years Eve. Don't believe 90% of what the people from 011 are posting, because 90% of them half less than 3 years on and can't spell "crime scene", let alone interpret one. I work Mass trans and I was there. Consider this a first-hand account. Be safe irregardless people.

Thought process of JFed:

These local yocals don't need that kind of firepower. They're not feds. And you know, you always have to keep them asking for things.

Thought process of patrolmen:

I work 99 days, if I ever turn into a firefight as described I will put my Ford in reverse just as fast as I can. In WWI Sgt York took on dozens of the enemy by himself but at least he had a good .30 caliber bolt action rifle and plenty of training. All I have is reverse gear and I intend to use it. No use getting into a firefight if you aren't able to return fire.

You lack of being in touch with reality is rearing it's ugly head. Thee guns are out there and they are using them. We said "find and qualify people." We didn't say hand out rifles to every copper out there and pray they learn how to use it.

Do you really think you need to carry a M4 1.5 miles in under 15 minutes to get it to a shootout, then touch your toes, do 35 situps and bench press 80% of your body weight before you can bring fire to bear on target? You're a fucking idiot.

We can name 10 cops right now who'd have heart attacks if they had to even attempted to do the power test yet if the shit hit the fan, they'd embarrass 75% of the SWAT guys shooting.

Shotguns should be in every squad car. Rifles in every sector. Anything less is unacceptable.

During the gangster days of Prohibition, the Tommy gun was used by the gangsters. Law enforcement, even the relatively new FBI, armed their agents with the same so as to even the playing field in a firefight.

Fast forward to today, and we have Shortshanks who didn't want the military to carry rifles in the airport after 9-11. What a completely useless fucking idiot. This is who leads us. God help us.

Imagine an incident of terrorism that takes place in several schools at the same time (they can do that you know, Shortshanks, they took several planes at the same time.) Now where do you send SWAT? Which school? But the cops don't have rifles, so guess who's shit out of luck?

This guy should be held accountable for being so stupid and short sighted.

"Downtown is pissed off at any mention of the Obama '08 Riots...

"The first instance of the specter of violence emerging was raised by Barack Obama himself in a speech to a predominantly black audience at Hampton University on June 5, 2007. In the company of his radical minister, Jeremiah Wright, Obama raised the specter of the 1992 Los Angeles riots multiple times while addressing the disconnect between America and it’s black citizens. Obama apologists, like CNN’s Roland Martin, were quick to dismiss criticism of the speech with the simple point that Obama was only pointing out the feelings among black Americans. What goes unaddressed is the painfully obvious point that conventional wisdom among blacks is that the LA riots were justified by the refusal to convict the officers who arrested Rodney King. While a far cry from Malcom X and Stokley Carmichael it was a chilling moment for those not under the Obama spell."

I qualified rifle expert while I was in the Marine Corps. I'll never claim to be the best shot, but I know how to use, clean, breakdown, and hit a target 500 yards away with an M-16.

I don't really care to work any of those details or units (tru, tact, etc.), but you can put one in my car.......and in the squad cars of hundreds of other qualified officers who are content working a beat. We'll get them to where they'll need to be quicker than anyone else since we'll probably already be on scene.

Nice to have the guns in the car. It won't prevent someone from getting shot by a rifle, but it's nice to have in the car.

Actually, maybe the only situation in which actually firing it will be of any value will be the guy in 011 who has a rifle AND is wearing a vest.

But the scare value is nice, to anyone who has a gun, because anyone else knows you can't use it for 99% of the time just like your pistol.

What if, though, instead of shooting the rifle at a suspect, he drops his rifle required weapon and starts running? I guess he gets away because I can't chase him with my rifle in my hands, and I certainly can't fight and take custody of the guy with my rifle in my hands.

But it may scare the casual fuckup.

It's too bad that in reality, it's nothing more than something to make some coppers feel a bit safer, even if it's only in their head.

It's too bad that having a rifle in your hands means you become a stationary retaliatory threat that cannot adapt to a changing scenario other than one where you have at least one other copper with you, and the guy you're pointing the rifle at drops his gun and can be taken into custody by someone other than you, or that most satisfying event that maybe he hesitates and you get to kill him with the rifle, hoping there's no one behind him within the kill range of the round.

The copper driving around the corner into a rifle fight, whatever, may not have the chance to prevent himself from getting shot. A rifle in the car doesn't stop a sniper round either.

Any way you look at it, a rifle in the car means nothing to deterring crime, nothing to the guy who runs from you and nothing to the sniper you never knew was there.

What it IS, is a liability in terms of taking one man in a two man car out of the fight in all ways since only a complete idiot would lay down the rifle to assist in a fight. Much like you wouldn't lay your pistol down on the ground and jump in a fight would you? Na, you HOLSTER and SECURE it prior to getting in the fight because you're not stupid enough to lay your gun down on the ground because what if the guys gets to it?

Where it WILL work though is downtown where maybe the drunken suburbanites will shit themselves on the sidewalk outside the bar when you point it at them.

The shithead in 011 will only laugh.

But it still would be nice to have in the car, although I'm not gonna handicap myself by being the one responsible for it, and I'm sure after a good long talk through various scenarios my partner will agree he'd rather have me carry a weapon and still be able to jump in without having to leave him and run back to the car to secure the rifle.

And to those who think you can fight with a rifle slung around your back, try it first before whipping out your flame cause it ain't easy. I guarantee once the fight starts you'll feel the liability of having to secure TWO weapons at the same time.

Enjoy

I don't know why I find if funny that you write, "...less than 3 years on and can't spell "crime scene"..." then go on to write, "Be safe irregardless people."

LOL! I'm just sayin'.


Function:
adverb
Etymology:
probably blend of irrespective and regardless
Date:
circa 1912

nonstandard : Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.

I know he doesnt get much credit but the gangbangers and dealers do see him out there and tend to stay away when he is out and about. I wish more coppers in that district were the same way. I appreciate seeing the police in every part of this city. Its a shame the rest of your command staff, local reverends, polictians and mayor don't even support you guys. You guys get beat up in the media over and over again by a few select assholes. Unfortunately they never tell the stories where the copper did something good. Only at their funerals.

I'm sure there are more officers on this job with your qualifications. I agree that having to take the power test is an asinine idea. Hopefully that will change and the powers that be, let officers that have been in the military carry rifles without taking the power test. Then again this is CPD.

Im the guy that waved to beat 1423 around 10:30 friday night. You saw me and waved back...a good many of us do support the police, and are glad to see the police patrolling through the area...

Well why don't you tell Bt. 1414 to clean up the 2500 block of Milwaukee! The Mexican bar and transient hotel is a big open air drug market! Stop anyone on that block and you'll have a nice PCS pinch.

The chances of a cop actually needing a rifle are really slim, but the chances of some nitwit being stupid with one is pretty high. I suspect that is what is driving these decisions.

It might only take one incident of dumb for them to be taken away. That would make you look even worse.

Sorry guys, but you roll around a corner into a fire fight with Ak-47's or anything like that, you're STUPID to get out of the car and engage the enemy. Your rifle will be securly locked in your trunk, without a round chambered. IF your really good and practice, I'd say it will take you 15 to 20 seconds UNDER STRESS to slame the car in park, hit the button to disarm the lock, get out, run to the rear of the vehicle, open trunk, open lock, grab rifle, sling it up, and chamber a round. All the while, what is YOUR PARTNER going to do? Remember the policy is only ONE rifle per car. Is department won't give you a TASER, so why the hell do the trust you with a rifle? Marine Officers Master's and Hamilton think they are sexy, and will make you all happy. Sorry for the lon winded rant. I can't wait for Bud Billikan!

Remember Sgt. M. Yetsin (spelling?) in 10? He was driving his squad car in in the area of 20th and rockwell. He was ambushed by a peice of shit king shooting a a rifle from the roof top of an apt. building. The round smashed thru his left forearm and f***ed him really bad. Parts of the round also hit his left thigh. The Sgt. had to retire due to disability. (loss use of his left hand). I not saying that if the sgt had a rifle with him that day this wouldn't have happened; I'm saying if everyone out there knew we were armed with these types of weapons, we wouldn't be seen as sitting ducks.

Outgunned? You guys are out everything! My kid is a cop in a west suburban DuPage County PD. Sig Sauer P220 .45 stainless duty weapon. M-16 (not AR) patrol rifle on rack at top of cage. Each patrolman and patrol Sgt. and Lt. gets a taser and MONTHLY qualification range time in the basement during shift which includes his off duty 10 rd. baby Glock .45. And you know, who is more likely to face a situation when the weaponry and practice is needed? When I first started reading this blog about 3 months ago, thought many are a bunch of whiners. The complete opposite is true. You guys are getting the shaft from everyone. Be it a large segment of crummy citizens, all the crummy politicians and worse of all-your own freaking PD management.

Before I retired, I qualified with the rifle. I had never shot one before. I was amazed at the accuracy. I loved (and still do) my shotgun, but there is definitely a place for a rifle in a squad. The power test to carry a rifle is a joke. You want someone with experience and knowledge. The power test is a joke to give them a chance to fire you. If you can't pass, you go on medical.

"Long story, short: the trauma/injury to boo-boo's head may not have neccessarily come from "a rifle", rather came from blunt force trauma when he impacted the pole."

It should have ben easy to tell if you were there. A .223 causes a cavitation injury. Impact does not.

"In the meantime don't get everyone worked up over the fact that theres rifles on the streets of the ghettos. Always have been."

What are you talking about!? When should people get worked up? Do we wait for a copper to get killed by a rifle?

"Don't believe 90% of what the people from 011 are posting, because 90% of them half less than 3 years on and can't spell "crime scene"

Hey, dopey, I got a clue for you: "half" is spelled "have." If yer gonna make fun of people who can't spell - learn to spell.

OT - Great turnout this morning for the Area 4 Ride To Remember. Over 700 bikes! I was told the procession of motorcycles was 2 1/2miles long! Thanks to the civilians and police other departments who rode.

There were a few of pissed off people (several gave us the finger, but they know where they can go) but overall a great response from the citizens of Chicago. What I saw today was the reason I became the police.

I smiled everytime someone waved or honked at us, especially the little kids. There are a lot of people out there who still like us!

A special thanks to the CFD Engine (or Truck) that was pulled over on LDS just north of 31st Street, who's members saluted us.

Kudos to all the CPD who did a great job of blocking off traffic for us - 001, 008, 009, 010, 011, 012, 021 20, 009, 008, 021, Traffic, TMA. Did I forget anyone?

We don't need to spend millions of taxpayer dollars, even though we were told private money would be used, on Olympic wannabe bullshit before they tell Daley no anyway.

We don't need to spend millions in fake lawsuits to enrich Daley's lawyer buddies, even though we have corp counsel who's already on salary to do this job.

Rifles are for killing people at long distances.

Take a rifle on this job and shoot some shithead who is a block away and you are going to an Illinois State Penitentiary for the better part of your adulthood. Outside of a hostage situation, I don't care what scenario you draw up in your head, you shoot some mope at that distance on today's job and the ASAs will charge you with murder, you will get convicted, and you will go to jail.

Everyone is telling you that things have gone back to the way they were. That its OK to do police work again. It isn't. Nothing has changed. They may look the other way on complaints and other "violations" in the short term, but this shit stays on the books for years and this department will be back to fucking coppers in no time. Do not for one second believe that the Joe running this department in 2011 won't charge you for something you did in 2008.

Someone posted 10:15 am 7/27 a list of reasons why rifles are tactical liabilities. Agree with many reasons presented. You cannot run out a rifle all the time. But the issue is you cannot have people shooting up a neighborhood at will as happend in N. Hollywood after BOA robbery and being out gunned in general. You cannot have cops running to local gun stores to "borrow" guns. (Remember, guns and gun stores are illegal in the mind of the dumbocrat city political culture)Therefore, availability and use as needed as required. But this entire matter goes back to problem #8 at the top of the blog. There is a serious armament, training and practice problem that remains unaddressed in this citizens opinion. Hey Dick-all the CPD problems and issues are laid out for you 1-8 courtesy of this blog. Why don't you and the J eliminate 90% of the CPD problems and focus on those issues? By the way; on the gun subject: highly recommend Springfield Armory XD .45 Bi-Tone/its a big no bullshit 13 round gun with 5" pipe. Chalky said: "Shoots straight and works every time".

They don't care about you. You are a pawn in a game they're playing. They only care about how any attention will affect them and their careers. If it's useful to them, you'll get a rifle. If not, you're on your own.

All the bullshit meetings with you are only a sign that some kind of pressure was felt because of "de-policing" and that brings negative attention on them. They can't have that, so they try to trick you into thinking that they care.

The first poster is correct..223/5.56 penetrates less on hard target like water heaters,2x4s,washer dryer,car doors.

9mm "generally" does better on drywall,wood,glass.

.223/5.56 will penetrate soft body armor where most common 9x19 does not.

More misinterpretation from the masses. This comment was not published due to the name used by the individual.

Dear Mr., Mrs., or Miss SCC, I've enjoyed your blog for quite some time now.

gee thanks

But from time to time you choose to drag OFFICERS into your conversations and put them down for no apparent reason.

We're sure you'll demonstrate this tendency of ours using actual quotes and words we've written, right?

You like to rant about the media bashing the police but here you are doing the same thing.

Yes we rant, and we're still waiting for you to provide us with examples...you know, actual things we've written.

IF you can name 10 guys...

We can. We would but we don't want them to get big heads.

...that can shoot better than me (an officer on the SWAT team) I WOULD NOT be embarrased.

We'd be arguing semantics here. We used "embarrass" to mean "out-shoot by a wide margin." You on the other hand seem to want to use "embarrass" to mean "red-faced and ashamed of your ability."

Shooting is a skill. A skill that must be honed to be good at. We are mediocre shooters. We've recently started upping our training time because we figure we owe it to our families and co-workers. We can put all 30 qualification shots on the paper, even the ones at 25 yards and have done so the past few years. But we aren't going to pretend that we're fantastic at it or a natural. We're capable.

And we're still waiting for your examples of our "put downs."


I know I can shoot just fine but there are still people that may be better.

...still waiting...

Embarrased...no, I'd give these ten guys a pat on the back and say nice job.

How very big of you...still waiting...any example? Anything at all? Just a single instance of us putting down anyone?

There is more to being on S.W.A.T. than shooting tests and physical tests. Those are just the starting points because you have to start somewhere.

How did this turn into a critique of SWAT? Have you no concept of how to argue logically? Did we put down SWAT? Only in your misinterpretation of the word "embarrass."

Fine. Here we go. SWAT is a difficult and dedicated part of police work. It takes lots of training and teamwork to function as a single unit and go up against some very hairy situations. We appreciate how hard it is.

That being said, for the most part, SWAT knows going in that they're going to be up against some seriously disturbed or fucked up situations. That's the mission. Patrol however is going to stumble into more shit just by dint of being out and around responding to 911 calls. Patrol needs shotguns and really ought to have rifles available. We are steadfast in that belief.


I'll excuse your NARROW MINDEDNESS as a lapse in your better judgement.

And we'll excuse your misinterpretation of our word and your complete inability to address the accusation made at the beginning of your post. You still haven't identified one single instance of us dragging an officer into our argument - your strawman still hasn't been knocked down.

We'll also excuse our decision to publish your silly comment, but we were bored tonight and you made it awfully easy to make a point.


But in the future please use a little more caution when you throw your fellow officers under the bus. When you don't YOU sound like an ASSHAT.

Coming from an asshat such as yourself, we'll quietly smile at how deep you've managed to penetrate into the realms of asshatted-ness.

Sincerely, a fellow CHICAGO POLICE OFFICER assigned to unit 141.

Thanks for playing.

Another great observation of the SWAT guys...worked housing a few weeks back and was having dinner at the Portillos downtown. Tourists approached the "cool-looking guys in the green outfits!" (as heard shrieked by an over-excited pre-pubescent boy) and asked to take a picture with/of them. One of the SWAT guys (didn't make out his name) became the mouthpiece for the group and insisted that there would be NO pictures because he didn't want the team's identity compromised. Do you believe that shit!!?? I would maybe have understood if the tourists were non-English speaking and of Middle Eastern descent...but a 6 year old boy from Nowhere, Iowa??? The kid broke down in tears and kept asking "Why?", to which one of the SWAT guys responded "it's policy, kid - one day you'll know what that means". SWAT left and we offered to take pictures with the kid, and he was overjoyed. The Mom was in tears also at this point and couldn't thank us enough. The Dad shook all of our hands and promised to write a letter to the Sup detailing both the negative and positive points of the family's first interaction with CPD. Way to go, SWAT.

Depending on the load, the .223 may or may not penetrate the vest. I know that most .223 hollowpoint or soft-point rounds will penetrate less than 9mm duty ammo.

I should have clarified my answer and said there is no vest a 9mm can penetrate that a 223 cannot..

By now you are sick of me sending messages this way. I did not see my post anywhere near the time I sent it and therefore I thought you chose to delete it. Only now did I come across your response at 11P.M or so. BTW I was not trying to insinuate I was SCC I used it as the name because I had your quote following it.
My statement "But from time to time you choose to drag OFFICERS into your conversations and put them down for no apparent reason."
was made because I did take "embarass" to mean "red-faced and ashamed of your ability."
in the May 05 post "Rifles? Not for You" you also chose to say you could name half a dozen officers off the top of your head that could outshoot anyone on SWAT. Obviously I have no clue who SCC is but you seem to know a lot about the guys on SWAT and how well they shoot. When comments are made like that it sounds as if you are putting us down. Thats what my point was. I guess this has gotten way out of hand but the point is we do train hard and we do what we do because at least we are doing it for OUR fellow officers. It is the one place left where I can work hard, enjoy what I'm doing and know it's about my friends in blue not these pieces of crap that could care less about us. Anyway for me it's late and you could probably care less about this so with that... read you later,

Ever in the military? Our troops take people into custody with M4s all the time. Zip cuff them and haul them away. The M4 is not for every use, every situation. It's there for the time that you need it. As far as rounds going through people, I would assume that hollow points would be the authorized ammo. The rounds mushroom on impact and won't go through.

And since when do you point a rifle at drunken yuppies to scare them? Review your tactics and get back to us.

If rifles are issued, extra rifle stopping vests and additional anti-rifle round protection should also be issued.
---------------------------------
So now instead of taking 30 seconds to get your rifle out of the trunk and get ready for action you will take an extra 30-60 seconds to put your extra gear on and then get your rifle ready for action.

If it was me, I would say get a shotgun over a rifle and put it up in the front of the squad in a locked rack, with some kind of fast release lock. Something that is positive, but can be operated fairly easily under stress.

Most street cops will never need a rifle, but a shotgun might well come in handy more often.

A shotgun is pretty close to beign as accurate as a rifle at the ranges you are likely to encounter in an urban area. And 00 buck shot won't travel anywhere near as far if you miss as a .223 will.

Put the rifle in the trunk if it makes you feel better, but my guess is a nice 870 would better serve the average street cop, and would certainly get more use (unless the power minds made the ROE's so restrictive they were useless).

Swat is comprised of mostly rubbers that were not the police and that includes the hold overs from SOS. Couple of real police still there but not many. Most of you were given thousands and thousands of rounds of free ammo from the city in order to sharpen your shooting skills so you could qualify. If you constantly have to justify your existence shouldnt that tell you something. It is still a phone call unit. And no, most of the best marksman on the department are not on SWAT. Stop trying to sell your bullshit to someone that didnt work there. You guys work really hard while sitting on Rush St in front of starbucks for hours at a time. Its a cush spot so take it for what it is. And no I dont want to fight you or meet you in the lot of Homan sqaure after work I will just laugh at you whenever I see you.

this is funny... i was a marine corps sniper and have several recorded kills, i also have many kills with the m4 and m16 rifle while bog(boot on ground) in grenada and iraq(the first iraq)...now im a little older(ok alot older) but still shoot every week on my rdo's but i know i cannot pass the power test, but give me a rifle up to and including one mile with a good scope and pookie will be dead..so do i really have to pass a powertest to carry a gun to be qualified.???

Just one word..........FAKED
There is only ONE CORP in the world and its spelled CORP not corps....

7/27/2008 12:52:00 PM
Your response sir shows that like most of the people who write on this blog, they do not know what they are talking about. I don t know where you learned how to spell Corps but it sure as hell was not in my United Staes Marine CORPS. That is the way it has been spelled for the last 233 years.
Rifles when needed are a tool that we can not do with out. But they are usesless when not being employed. I don t know how the selection procedd should be made as to who carries an M4. Just becaise you can hit a paper target at 25 yards does nt mean anything when the time comes to acting under perssure. Anyone that has ever been in a fire ffight knows it s true. Having been around Negligent Discharges in both the CORPS and this job, that 223 round will go a long way........ and it does not care who it hits. There are plenty of people on this job who should not carry a handgun let alone an M4. I do know that when you need one you can not wait for it to arrive. That gun fight is usually long over with, unless you are engaged with an enemy who is prepared to slug it out. And that does happen.......P.O. Clark. LA Bank Robbery.
No easy answers..............

Blame all the white shirts, it's all their fault. They have truly killed once was a great job.

-----------------------

Yes, there were few M4 classes already for the ones that pass the power test. So, there are at least over 120 or so officers are qualified with the M4 riffles out there. FYI

I learned today that the south suburban town of Posen has semi-automatic rifles (M-16's) in each one of their squad cars along with ballistic helments and shields....

Maybe our "policy section" guys can call out there and try to get it right...WTF

POSEN PD....they also have department issued shotguns available to carry in their cars instead of a M-16's....their choice.

What do they pay out there?

Another great observation of the SWAT guys...worked housing a few weeks back and was having dinner at the Portillos downtown. Tourists approached the "cool-looking guys in the green outfits!" (as heard shrieked by an over-excited pre-pubescent boy) and asked to take a picture with/of them. One of the SWAT guys (didn't make out his name) became the mouthpiece for the group and insisted that there would be NO pictures because he didn't want the team's identity compromised. Do you believe that shit!!?? I would maybe have understood if the tourists were non-English speaking and of Middle Eastern descent...but a 6 year old boy from Nowhere, Iowa??? The kid broke down in tears and kept asking "Why?", to which one of the SWAT guys responded "it's policy, kid - one day you'll know what that means". SWAT left and we offered to take pictures with the kid, and he was overjoyed. The Mom was in tears also at this point and couldn't thank us enough. The Dad shook all of our hands and promised to write a letter to the Sup detailing both the negative and positive points of the family's first interaction with CPD. Way to go, SWAT.

Chill out dude. They're Operators. Don't you remember "Hoot" from Black Hawk Down? They might have to ride a bike undercover through Fillmo. You have no idea the level of skill, dedication and phone calls these barrel chested freedom fighters have. Force Protection is their primary concern when hunting Muslim terrorists, westside dope dealers and half price hot dogs. Strength & Honor!

To the guy who said "chill out gun wackos", i feel sorry for anyone who rides with you, sir ! You are most likely the guy to be found with old green bullets in his magazines, and probably soft magazine springs as well. Heres a clue for you : When the slide doesnt lock back after the last round goes out of the pistol, you need to go to gunsprings.com and get 5% extra power mag springs. Thats 10% extra power springs for glocks, which are very tight from the factory and make the pistol so reliable in the first place. I did my 3 sig mags in 15 minutes... 8 round single stack mag springs last much longer than the 12-15 round staggered mags..A life saving tip for the cop on the beat who is waiting for long guns from J FRAUD !

"Since you can spell 'crime scene'" is called an "introductory clause", and a comma, should be used.

You did it again. No comma is necessary after "comma" in your reply. Did you recieve a big box of commas for Christmas and you just enjoy peppering your sentences with them whenever you feel like it?

Ass monkey.

It was a typo, but you got me on that one.

"You know what I got for Christmas? Oh, it was a banner f*ing year at the old Bender family. I got a carton of commas. The old man grabbed me and said, 'Hey, comma, up, Johnny!'"

"Chill out gun wackos. When was the last time an M16 was needed on a scene?"

Coupla months ago when some shitbird opened up on 2 dicks w/ some sorta kalishnikov clone. If that went worse would you be telling their wives and children to "chill"? Think about what you type before you do it, please.

"Also watch out for that blond captain on the midnights, too hyper, needs to cool off and appreciate her people"

CP is a great copper, a great boss and a great person. She takes care of her people and backs them up 100%. Maybe you should learn to appreciate her?

Lastly. Quit bashing swat. I'm sure there are some egotistical pricks there. Kinda like...I dunno...everywhere. If there is I have never met one. All I have met (and admittedly, I havent met every one of them) seem like standup, cool guys to me. Ive been on the scene of some stuff where they have been a big help. Taking out the south side shitbird in that hostage situation a little while ago? Nice work lads, keep it up. What do I know though. I'm just a PO who thinks us tearing each other down is akin to spoon feeding us right into lil dicks, the revs, the alderfilths and the parasites mouths.

I herd from a very good source that the dept has 250 semi-auto M-4 type rifles on order. 10 per district.
With more to come in the future.

SWAT uses fully auto M-4 rifles.
They will be getting new weapons

Since you can spell "crime scene", you should also know that "irregardless" is not a word.

Go arrest a turnstile jumper.

It's worth noting here that no comma is necessary after "crime scene".

Slightly off topic............I live in Beat 1422, I am not a cop, just a local resident that reads this blog site daily and I must say that it is nice to see the copper on 1422 days out there doing his job on a daily basis and trying to make the community better that I live in. I know he doesnt get much credit but the gangbangers and dealers do see him out there and tend to stay away when he is out and about. I wish more coppers in that district were the same way. I appreciate seeing the police in every part of this city. Its a shame the rest of your command staff, local reverends, polictians and mayor don't even support you guys. You guys get beat up in the media over and over again by a few select assholes. Unfortunately they never tell the stories where the copper did something good. Only at their funerals. So to the men and wome of CPD, keep up the good work guys, you are greatly appreciated I am happy you are out there.
