Why No Outcry?

  • Police were investigating late Friday the shooting of a woman in a section of the West Loop frequented by restaurant-goers.

    The woman was waiting for her boyfriend about 1:45 a.m. Friday in the 800 block of West Randolph Street when two men approached her, said Capt. Hootan Bahmandeji.

    One demanded valuables, which she refused to turn over, police said. After a struggle, the men grabbed unspecified items and fled. As they were leaving, one of them shot her, police said.
This happened just outside of where the largest Chicago event of the weekend will be going on, "The World's Largest Block Party." Have the troops been notified? Have days off been canceled? Is Car 47 aware?

And why is the description of the assailants limited to "two men...in their 20's"? Tourists everywhere need to be asking if it's safe to be in Chicago any more.

Its seems to be "Politically Incorrect" for the media to use any descriptive terms that imply race. i.e. black hispanic etc, but if its a "2" its readily said.

Look at the sketches released to the media its almost always race neutral.

Im still waiting for the Reverends to yell and scream about the shootings at the Taste.

Vote (R)- I will be holding my nose but...

Holy Valet It Batman!!!

Since our superintendent is still focused daily on media politics and public perceptions; the police department continues to run amuck with incompetent management. Who's running the store? When and where are these new batch of crime fighting strategies going to be implemented to deal with Chicago's out-of-control crime?

Folks it looks like it might take several more months before the superintendent is going to be able to turn the ship around. By then, Winter will be here and the murder rampage going on now in our streets should have cooled off.

If you follow the police superintendent's statistical analysis and flow charts we are only a few more murders above last year's. Not bad...for his first year.

If you do my math, I predict a 21 percent increase in overall violent crimes reported for this year with an annual upward trend continuing around 20 to 25 percent annually for at least the next two years. However, I am not waiting for them to offer some crime prevention strategies for the general public.

Here are some protective measures that have been proven to be effective time and again:

1. Folks buy a handgun, shotgun or rifle and learn how to properly operate, care and secure this ultimate crime fighting tool in your home and on your person.

2. Stay at home as much as possible. If necessary, stay in well lit areas and public places. Utilize valet parking when dinning out in Chicago.

3. Write, email or make a personal visits often to your local alderman's office. Ask them why crime and disorder is "out of control" here in Chicago? Ask that alderman why they don't support the police officers working the streets?

4. Start a political action committee for the purpose of electing new candidates for state and local offices.

5. Pray for divine intervention.

6. Register to vote.

7. Run for public office.

8. People vote for honest and responsible government.

9. Decide now know to make a change in your future.

10. Do it now!!!

Some good advice above but if your in Chicago you can't legally buy a pistol being a Chicago resident. If you purchase any other firearm it must be approved before hand and registered each year by the chicago police department. Take classes to learn how to use and store them safely.

Start contacting your ward captains and aldermen, also your state representatives and ask them why is it you can't be trusted to defend yourselves and family legally? Join The Illinois State Rifle Association. They are currently fighting to get your 2nd amendments rights back from those legislators ! Vote with your mind and call those politicians, let them know your dissatisfied with the conditions in the city! Be safe!

if another person is shot by these 2 "MEN" the victim needs to sue the piss out of the media outlets for neglegence in failing to properly identify the offenders to the public.

Maybe that will wake them from their liberal coma.

Mike Royko had the best idea. Everyone should just polka around chicago. When you are polkaing you keep spinning around stopping on the ground shouting hoya, hoya. While spinning you could see if anyone is sneeking up on you and by stopping you just might kill a chicago rat,that the mayor does not like. The yelling of hoya,hoya well, that's the polish love call. You know what the irish love call is. Man I loved Royko !

We need concealed carry in this state now... not when daley goes out of office, and blago is parked next to gov' ryan. Only stupid illinois, and equally stupid wisconsin are the places where no permits are issued. Heck, one can get a non-resident permit from a southern state and carry in numerous states with it. Mini Glocks and .38 hammerless revolvers are flying off the shelves in gun shops, and with good reason. For this reason, being a stick up guy remains one of the most dangerous jobs in america. The long term survival rate is right about the same as bangers pointing guns at the cops in chicago...almost sure to die of lead poisoning !

Ah, the liberal mind at work once again. Of course you can't give the description of an offender if the offender is a "person of color." Newsflash dickheads. We, and for that matter, the general public, don't care who the criminal is. The public wants to know who to look out for be they black, white, Hispanic or Asian. What kind of spineless hack is behind this?

The liberal is so worried about offending anyone. They are more offended by cops chasing criminals than the criminals preying on decent citizens. It used to be that people were more offended by criminal acts than cops crushing the criminals. It was expected that cops would crush criminal behavior. But here come the liberals. Here come the law suits. Here comes the end of policing and the beginning a wave of crime the likes of which have never before been seen.

You wanted it, you got it. Enjoy it.

There was a time, in this country and Euorpe, when if you wanted to get rid of someone you accused them of being something. You said they were a witch. This accusation rendered the accused powerless. They had no credibility, they were a witch, they could not defend themselves. They were a witch, everything they said must therefore be a lie. They could expect no defense, no support of any kind, from family, friends or anyone in their community. They were a witch, anyone who defended them must love witches or be one themselves. With one word a persons reputation was sullied forever and could not be restored

But that was long ago and could not ever happen in modern times. Right? That would never happen today in our enlighted world would it?

Substite the word "witch" for "racist". Today in our world one word can sully a persons reputation to the point where it can never be restored.

Dont like Obama? Witch! Think certain members of society should stop blaming everyone but themselves for their misfortune? Witch! Think people should be hired or promoted based on their talent, determination and character and not on their skin pigmentation? Witch! Want the public to be indformed about, or given descriptions of, violent criminals intent on preying upon them? Witch!

I could go on but do I need to? BTW, you agree with me? Put on a pointy hat and I'll see you around the cauldren. Bubble bubble, tiol and trouble...

I have said for a long time - no one important enough has become a victim. Til then the police will still be the bad guys in the libs minds. Wait for it. All these dumb fuckin liberals will start becoming victims to violent crime - then watch them all change their minds about letting the police be the police.

Can we guess the race of the offenders and the LONE victim? U can run, but they WILL follow. Simple logic, when the lib papers do not give the suspect/offenders race, it is safe to assume they are either a 1, 3 or 4.

It covers anything negligent or accidental. If you're sued for a shooting, they have to allege you did something wrong, i.e., either shot negligently or accidently, etc. Of course they can always say you committed a crime on purpose. But they can't sue you and then say you acted properly.

You are correct. They won't stretch out your homeowners to cover it.
Talk to your agent. You may be able to secure a liability policy. It will be an expensive policy, but would payoff in the long run by hedging the resultant punitive damages award.

He has thought about it, and he doesn't like the idea.

Why?

Because he knows that 'letting' the people 'arm to defend themselves' might lead to the people using those arms to defend themselves from him.

Funny thing is, the people already have the 'arms' they need, to defend themselves against corrupt politicians. They only lack the brains to use their arms to vote out the incumbents on election day.
