An Incredible Asshole

  • A Chicago civil rights attorney is pushing for an independent civil review board to investigate allegations of police misconduct regarding the Aug. 13 police shooting of a Waukegan youth.

    Lewis Myers, Chicago counsel for New York City-based National Action Network, a civil rights organization headed by the Rev. Al Sharpton, said the group is monitoring such incidents across the country.

Ah yes, the "not so Sharp-ton" connection. It gets better:
  • Myers, who teaches criminal justice as a professor for City Colleges of Chicago, said that a cursory check into the facts of the incident show that Lewis was fighting with his brother, not the police.

    "I have no reason to believe that officer's life was in danger," Myers said. "No one was trying to kill or injure him. We're waiting for the results of the pathology report. The angle of the bullets shot by the officer is going to be very revealing."

Except for the other officer lying bleeding on the ground with a skull fracture. How is this asshole going to explain away that? And the fact that Illinois law permits officers to use deadly force to protect the life of themselves or another. Since the dead jagoff still had a hammer and had shown an inclination to use it, we're pretty sure any competent judge with toss this on a motion.

The best part is an aldercreature making some sense. A Waukegan aldercreature (it would be too much to expect a Chicago aldercreature to make any sense whatsoever):
  • [Cunningham] said he will announce a proposal at the Sept. 2 City Council meeting for a program to educate Lake County youth on how to safely interact with police. His idea is to "stage" incidents including traffic stops and domestic disturbances.

    "A lot of our young men and women don't know how to respond when a peace officer approaches them," Cunningham said.

"Shut up, listen and stop acting the fool" would be a good first lesson. "Don't up with a pistol" could be lesson #1A. Perhaps he can plan a class for the Chicago citizens?

I'll assume these "Street Survival For Ghetto Thugs" classes will be woven into the normal, everyday curriculum at their respective grammar and high schools? Ooops! Guess they won't be absorbing this lesson, either. A more effective means of conveying these important life-lessons would be to print them on the underside of labels on 40-ouncers that can be peeled off and perused while kickin' it and keepin' it real with the homies corner-side. It'd be like ghetto fortune cookies, sort of.

Comedian Chris Rock's short video skit entitled "How NOT to Get Your Ass Kicked by the PO-lice" should be mandatory for all "urban yuffs".

Add a sequel: "How NOT to get SHOT by the PO-lice"

Let us hope that Sharpton is indicted soon for failing to pay his taxes!

Lewis Myers was part of the Eugene Pincham crowd that would try to file class action lawsuits if you farted in the back of the bus.

This ASSHOLE should NOT be teaching Criminal Justice at all to future Police Officers!

What can he read out of a book about being the Police! You have to do the job to have real credibility! I'll bet this asshole never saw a DOA except in a funeral home!

There are plenty of Chicago Police Officers that can teach College students way better than this Moron!

The City Colleges should fire his dumb ass pronto!

There is a short training video:

How Not To Get You Ass Beat By the PO-lice:


Take a moment, see it and maybe show it at your next community meeting.

We actually would show this to prisoners in in the processing area of our old district station.

Stay safe and keep a sense of humor.

Waukegan Alderman probably get under the table kickback, excuse me, campaign contributions from the lawyers on these settlements just like Chicago alderman. This would be a great expose on the news if only they would shift the blame to the police.

Line them up and run them through the Cook County jail dressed like real altar boys (black slacks worn at the waist with belts, white shirts with black ties, and polished street shoes) and let the cons whoop and holler at them for a while before class starts. Then have some bad SOB give them a class on how to live through a traffic stop or other police contact. Pass around crime scene photos of people who failed the practical exercise portion of the class.

This should probably start at around 11 years of age.

The colleges and universities somehow have it correct, when their programs are named "Criminal Justice", because that's just what it is-justice for criminals. :(
