Lincoln Park Drive-By

  • A man attempting to break up a fight was shot Friday night in the North Side’s Lincoln Park neighborhood.

    The shooting happened about 10:15 p.m. at 1642 N. Vine St., according to Fire Media Affairs spokesman Richard Rosado.

    The victim observed two unknown people having a verbal altercation when he approached and separated them, police News Affairs Officer Daniel O'Brien said. The two went their separate ways, and one of them got into a maroon-colored vehicle, O'Brien said.

    As the vehicle fled, shots were fired, striking the victim.

Downtown, Lincoln Park, Rock and Roll McDonald's. Tourists and yuppies - the people he can hit up for taxes, fees, fines and other money - all in danger of fleeing or staying away. But he'll let his puppets play their political games, attacking the union, shuffling duties, creating six-figure spots for idiots.

I said it before and will say it again. When you drop the former residents of ghetto ran CHA Projects into working class areas... It doesn't make them want to do better to be like the working folks.

They just continue what they know all so well and continue to get away with it.

I heard that even the new Donald Trump Tower is going to have Section 8 residences. Imagine that, some yuppie fool pays $750,000 for a Trump Tower condo and the guy next door has his roaches sneaking over to his place to eat.


THIS IS FUCKING CRAZY!


So now go vote Obama, so it can get 1000 times worse!

I heard a certain female bike sergeant formerly of 020 now in another northside district told her 3rd watch roll call that all the coppers on the 3rd watch in 020 were all dogasses and when she made Lt. she was gonna come back and f**k with everyone she didn't like. Another fine example of a merit/do nothing. I heard Ronnie Huberman is her clout, go figure.

OT A year ago there were just over 10,000 police officers w/ paycode 9161. One year later that number is now 9964 for the entire department. Looking at where the officers are/aren't is the Patrol Division, we currently have 7,205 assigned to districts 1-25. Take the number assigned to Patrol subtract front office, desk, caps, lockup, tac teams and officers on medical and IOD, add in officers on furlough, RDO's and leave of absences, then divide by three watches and seven day off groups. WHERE ARE THE OFFICERS AT? The bosses want to know why there is a spike in crime, the fact that we are so short handed might have something to do with there are no officers to patrol the streets. Here is another fact we have less than 1200 (1161 to be exact) detectives on the job. Think they might be strectched a little thin to handle the uptick in crime? The bosses have to realize that this job requires that you have resources on the ground. Yeah, sure cameras are nice at 50-75K a pop but, the fact is technology cannot do the job on its own. Technology is there to enhance the work that officers do not replace the officers. Keep telling us we are up full manpower. How many of us have to ride 99 on 3rd or 1st watch? How many of us are having time, our time due denied, due to no manpower. How many more of us will be hurt or God forbid, killed due to no manpower. Is the department double counting people assigned to a district and also counting them assigned to units that they are detailed to? The numbers do not lie. Stay safe and go home at the end of your shift.

OT I wonder what type of system will be created by the D/S of BAS to rate officers. I understand that such a program is now being created. A new web page exists where you can put in your pc code and you are rated with nice colors red is bad, yellow, and green. They also track your TRRs vs. arrests. Everyone will be expected to keep up with their arrests or they will be subject to admonishment or SPAR forms. If their behaivor does not change they will be the subject of a CR. You will comply.

off topic, pension board elections are coming up.  FOP has endorsed one person for police officers, and one person for sgt.s.  Oddly enough both of these people are Dohanue's neighbors, and that's their only qualification.  Robbins actually refused to vote for pension benefits for a PO confined to a wheel chair for life.  But as long as they're Donahues' neighbors they should be in charge of our pension fund.  SCC should advertise for a PO to run for pension board, and the Sgt. Asso. should also seek another candidate.

My family and I live near the center of Beat 1813 in Lincoln Park. You will notice that between Willow St. ("the DMZ") and Armitage Ave., many of my neighbors and I have built multimillion dollars mansions on Burling, Orchard and Howe Sts.

If there is any part of this beat that should receive a surgically precise napalm air strike, it's the Section 8 project that can be found between North Ave. and Willows St., Vine and Orchard Sts. This is where the two recent drive-by shootings occurred.

Please don't dismiss us as affluent "YUPPIES". We pay exorbitant property taxes and are enraged by the corruption of Daley, Stroger and other Democrats.

Just check our voting patterns in Lincoln Park's 43rd Ward. You'd be surprised. We agree with many of the police officer posters. We will vote for anyone but a Democrat.

We appreciate the efforts of the fine officers assigned to the Near North police station.

You have to be very careful as a citizen. Sadly, in the world today it is not a good idea to intevene in altercations.

As previously posted call 911.

I remember reading where in I think Philthadelphia there was this pair of guys who would fight with each other on the street and when they got a citizen to intervene they would both beat on the citizen and then rob him.

Around the country where the liberals have blocked old-time police work the criminal element has evolved unchecked.

DON'T take this the wrong way, as this is sipmly friendly advice....perhaps you should move to LaGrange or Burr Ridge--. Bigger house, more land, better schools, still close to the shitty right off I55..... the amount of crime where you live is frightening, considering what you pay.... take a good look at who shops at your stores and walks down your streets.... It was ghetto/white trash before you moved in, and, unfortunately, it is about as good as it is going to get right now. If I had 750, which I never will, I certainly woldn't plunk it down in the Shitty..... especially considering your political point of view.... go where the conservitaves such as yourself are, and you will be better for it! It is so refreshing to hear 1. someone up there admit that Lincoln Park is not a utopia and 2. admit that they vote against the dem ticket and 3. agree with the police about anything these days!

But, of course, since he is able to achieve this spot w/o a phone call and has the backs of the men/women, he'll be allowed to wallow in the 003rd dist until he can bail out with a pension and turn his back on this shithole of a City.

The one post was correct. There is some type of "assisted" income housing just north of North Avenue near Orchard and Vine. It's been a problem for years.

I don't recall if it is CHA direct owned or "Section 8". It really doesn't matter. The problems are the same.

Fifteen years ago or less that area and the adjacent hood just south of North Avenue were a whole lot worse. My guess is some "community translator" or former gang banger turned social worker intervened and the wittle darlings took offense.

a bunch of lowly P.O.s and Det.s were discussing how the taste of chicago used to have a perimeter and every one passed through a check point and everything went smoothly then we discussed how we would avoid getting the dept sued in a certain incident but a boss (Avila) hung the Dept out to dry in this same incident by concocting some story to justify his manpower. Then I got to wondering how come we lowly P.O.s and Det.s know how to get thing done and CYA but Commanders and Deputy Chiefs can't see the common sense in these situations.

Hey DipShit!!! All Captains and Commanders are meritorious and always have been, there is no promotional test for those ranks.

Did you get caught doing something stupid and he disciplined you? He dump you off your car for being a dogass?

You'll be hard pressed to find a more standup boss anywhere on this job.

My family and I live near the center of Beat 1813 in Lincoln Park. You will notice that between Willow St. ("the DMZ") and Armitage Ave., many of my neighbors and I have built multimillion dollars mansions on Burling, Orchard and Howe Sts.

If there is any part of this beat that should receive a surgically precise napalm air strike, it's the Section 8 project that can be found between North Ave. and Willows St., Vine and Orchard Sts. This is where the two recent drive-by shootings occurred.

Please don't dismiss us as affluent "YUPPIES". We pay exorbitant property taxes and are enraged by the corruption of Daley, Stroger and other Democrats.

Just check our voting patterns in Lincoln Park's 43rd Ward. You'd be surprised. We agree with many of the police officer posters. We will vote for anyone but a Democrat.

We appreciate the efforts of the fine officers assigned to the Near North police station.

Mr. Lincoln Parker,

You seem like the kind of person I would enjoy spending a few moments with discussing the ills that plague us all if you happened to flag me down on the street to bring them to my attention. I’m sure that conversation would bring a certain measure of comfort to each of us – to you, by learning that I sympathize with your problems and work to resolve them to the best of my ability, and to myself for meeting another citizen who supports the police. Unfortunately I’m not there and you’re not here so this blog will have to serve the purpose.

Know that despite the demoralizing, corrupt, political environment we live and work in there are plenty of real police out there who watch over you, your family, and others like you. Real police will always be there for you when you need them the most. We knowingly put ourselves in the path of evil day after day, 24 hours a day, so that you may never have to. My greatest hope is that my own loved ones never have to know the horrifying world I encounter when I’m working. I truly hope that kind of horror never touches your life either.

Too bad we can’t chat over a beer or something. Like I said, I’d probably enjoy that, but then again I’m just one officer speaking on behalf of many. If we did meet you’d have just one face to put to these thoughts so perhaps it’s better that we don’t meet. The fact is, you’re surrounded by us. I hope you and your family sleep a little better at night knowing that.

Sincerely,

A Chicago Police Officer

Another fine example of a merit/do nothing. I heard Ronnie Huberman is her clout, go figure.


You feel as if you did'nt deserve this? That Sgt. is good and it's not the only Sgt. to have called you out. I believe you were also called cowards by a great Sgt.and one that has no clout. Pussies

4:55 PM (Troll)

Based on your comment, you are an incorrigible asshole with a room temperature IQ.

I've lived in Lincoln Park (43rd Ward) for thirty years. You'd be surprised that I have so many politically conservative neighbors. I concede that I have a higher percentage of liberals in my 'hood than Edgebrook, Edison Park and Mt. Greenwood.

"The Toddler" only lost to Peraica in five of 50 wards in the city: Wards 41, 45, 38, 42 and 43 (Lincoln Park).

The 1600 block of Vine/Orchard is the armpit on the north end (10 sector) of 018. To the south of North Ave. with Cabrini all but gone, the rowhouses and the Marshall Field bldg. at 1400 N. Sedgwick St. would qualify as the anus of 018.

Otherwise, this area is arguably the safest lakefront sector in the entire city.

* * * * * * * * * *

12:08 PM Re: "LaGrange and Burr Ridge"

A significant number of the people living in expensive Lincoln Park homes left their large homes on the North Shore, Hinsdale, etc. to enjoy the vitality of the city with fine restaurants, cultural venues and all the other attractive amenities of urban living.

* * * * * * * * * *

NO "MERIT" PROMOTIONS WHATSOEVER unless and until the City of Chicago gives a written, categorical and unequivocal defintion of "merit" with apropriate criteria and standards. Currently, "MERIT" = CLOUT.

If you disagree, respond to this hypothetical:

A male (John) and a female (Mary) "police officer" have only spent a brief time working district patrol, both in slow districts. In their entire careers, you could count their combined "on view" Part I felony arrests on one hand, if that. Forget parkers, pissers, shoplifters, one baggers and all that bullshit. Both are "poor test takers". Shortly thereafter, each is assigned to an empty holster job, again out of harm's way.

While both are discreet, John (or a CPD relative, active or retired) makes a cash "poltical contribution" to a corrupt alderman on John's behalf.

Mary, an attractive woman, has honed her "oral skills" with several influential male exempts in clandestine trysts.

As "police officers", both are inexperienced, clueless and virtually worthless.

Meanwhile, thousands of other officers have humped away for years in shitholes like 007 and 011. Both John and Mary are "meritoriously" promoted.
QUID PRO QUO! Both are then assigned to "supervise" working police officers who "paid their dues" long ago.

And don't tell us that this is unusual in this fucked up city. You KNOW better.

The Dept needs a different system for Merit promotions--because its not fair to the stiff who studied their fanny off, and some merit person comes in and has more senority then they do___I suggest that the dept sets a specific number of promotees, say 100 from the list---the dept then takes according to score the top 100, promotes them first off the list, then take an additional 30% (or whatever % it is )meritorious and promote them last off the list---this at least keeps the fairness in the game

But they all deserve to be sergeant and know more than the sergeants. Sheesh! Their biggest decision of the night is which starbucks to go to before they hide from work for the rest of the night.

Not to mention, Section 8 is a RENTAL voucher program and the tower is a condo. Trump's residential condos range from the $580s to more than $9 million. I sorta think somebody's had a few too many and their brain processes are foggy.

But, of course, since he is able to achieve this spot w/o a phone call and has the backs of the men/women, he'll be allowed to wallow in the 003rd dist until he can bail out with a pension and turn his back on this shithole of a City.

Mr. Lincoln Parker:

I am happy that you are successful enough to afford to pay over $1M for a residence. I would like to think that someone smart enough to make that much money would have the good sense to do a little research into the area before one drops a ungodly amount of money into it.

One has to rely on more than the information that the real estate salesperson feeds you. I bet they didn't tell exactly about the Section 8 housing, but referred to the "diverse nature" of the area.

Most smart people when they spend that kind of money for a residence they buy where the trouble people aren't instead of right next door to them.

Better get used to them. they ain't going anywhere. If O'Bama gets in, there will be more of them.

And don't think of taking legal action to stop it either. The Clintons when they were in power thought that was discrimination and the Justice department sued people.
And Barack makes the Clintons look like Barry Goldwater.

Truly one of the most astute posts I've seen in awhile. Good job! Such simple logic, yet so true!!! We should DEMAND the definition, and then DEMAND it be followed! Thank you.

Hey!!! Know my comments were harsh--but always was an active copper--CR#'s and fed suits have a way of making you re-think priorities however.

Just like the liberal lawyer asking the coppers why they were stopping someone.....

THANKS SCC FOR BEING THE VOICE FOR OFFICERS THAT WOULD GO UNHEARD. ONCE AGAIN HOLD COMMANDER STEVE GEORGAS ACCOUNTABLE FOR ANOTHER SHOOTING IN 018. WHEN YOU START HOLDING COMMANDERS ACCOUNTABLE, LIKE OUR SUPERINTENDENT STATED HE WOULD. CLOUT WOULD THEN IMPOSE A THREAT BY REARING IT'S UGLY HEAD. MAYBE OUR MAYOR WOULD SAY IT'S TIME TO PROMOTE SOME SHARP COPPERS INSTEAD OF ARROGANT MERITORIOUS 37 YEAR OLD COMMANDERS WHO TALK DOWN TO PATROLMAN AND REALLY BELIEVE THAT THEY HAVE EARNED THERE PROMOTIONS. JUST REMEMBER STEVE JUST BECAUSE YOUR COMMANDER TODAY DOES NOT ENSURE EXEMPT RANK FOR YOUR CAREER. OH WAIT YOUR 37 AND COMMANDER OF THE 018TH DISTRICT THAT'S SERIOUS CLOUT.

OT I wonder what type of system will be created by the D/S of BAS to rate officers. I understand that such a program is now being created. A new web page exists where you can put in your pc code and you are rated with nice colors red is bad, yellow, and green. They also track your TRRs vs. arrests. Everyone will be expected to keep up with their arrests or they will be subject to admonishment or SPAR forms. If their behaivor does not change they will be the subject of a CR. You will comply.

8/24/2008 03:35:00 AM

Comply ok! When I take them to federal court for making me arrest anyone without "just cause" they can spar themselves! Do whatever they want guess when you have an exempt structure that cannot be respected they want to screw us over! Come to thinkof it I will not make any arrests unless absolutely correct and with a signed complaint otherwise STFU!

Hey DipShit!!! All Captains and Commanders are meritorious and always have been, there is no promotional test for those ranks.

Have you been living in a shoe? Captions have not always been appointed. The department had exams for captions or so called exams. Now say your sorry.

8/24/2008 11:30:00 PM






There hasn't been a Captain's test since 1983. The rank was eliminated with no further promotions upon the adoption of CRAPS in 1992. The plan was to eliminate the rank and have co-watch commanders as LTs. When Captain was restored as a rank and new promotions were made--they were made mertitoriously, so piss off.

They are posers who want people to think they are supercops and they are nothing but whiny jagoffs.

They lay down on jobs, don't even do the minimum and are still whining about losing 2005 two years ago.

If you don't like it, bid out, 24 other places to go, but then you'll have to work.

Wow even in good old Lincoln Park?

Off Topic:
I heard a certain female bike sergeant formerly of 020 now in another northside district told her 3rd watch roll call that all the coppers on the 3rd watch in 020 were all dogasses and when she made Lt. she was gonna come back and f**k with everyone she didn't like. Another fine example of a merit/do nothing. I heard Ronnie Huberman is her clout, go figure.


You feel as if you did'nt deserve this? That Sgt. is good and it's not the only Sgt. to have called you out. I believe you were also called cowards by a great Sgt.and one that has no clout. Pussies

You are dogs and afraid of police work. You like to collect a check for nothing.

So, stop your fucking whining and be happy thats all that happens to you for being afraid and not being on your beat, chickenshits.

And who's your clout, weasel? Anyone who you can run and snitch too.

They certainly do like to rat on people, especially the short one.

Three people, who did not have IR numbers, were murdered during robberies in the 013th District in as many days. The response of the 013th District has been to now assign almost five cars and a supervisor to solely patrol one square block that is Westhaven to mollify a handful of petrified white residents who purchased their concrete block condominiums next door to families who have never punched a time clock in five generations. A great benefit is being given to the pimp developers who are bleeding money with their empty condos. Wish I saw one beat car once a day in my neighborhood. Where are the Aldermen whose ward encompasses Ukrainian Village and River West. Hey John Kass I think this is another taxpayer funded freebie for connected developers. In the mean time robberies and murder are out of control in River West.

The Steve Georgas 018th District Commander open door policy is as follows.
He will not let Officers make appointments to see him.
He has his secretary inform the Officer that Commander Georgas schedule is filled.
When inquiring if there is any time to come back when he is not busy you are informed "not at this time".
Way to boast on how you have an open door policy for Officers. You are a real piece of work. When will downtown finally realize THAT STATISTICALLY CRIME HAS DOUBLED IN 018. Time to rotate these clowns.

Mr. Lincoln Parker,

You seem like the kind of person I would enjoy spending a few moments with discussing the ills that plague us all if you happened to flag me down on the street to bring them to my attention. I’m sure that conversation would bring a certain measure of comfort to each of us – to you, by learning that I sympathize with your problems and work to resolve them to the best of my ability, and to myself for meeting another citizen who supports the police. Unfortunately I’m not there and you’re not here so this blog will have to serve the purpose.

Know that despite the demoralizing, corrupt, political environment we live and work in there are plenty of real police out there who watch over you, your family, and others like you. Real police will always be there for you when you need them the most. We knowingly put ourselves in the path of evil day after day, 24 hours a day, so that you may never have to. My greatest hope is that my own loved ones never have to know the horrifying world I encounter when I’m working. I truly hope that kind of horror never touches your life either.

Too bad we can’t chat over a beer or something. Like I said, I’d probably enjoy that, but then again I’m just one officer speaking on behalf of many. If we did meet you’d have just one face to put to these thoughts so perhaps it’s better that we don’t meet. The fact is, you’re surrounded by us. I hope you and your family sleep a little better at night knowing that.

Sincerely,

A Chicago Police Officer

********************
I agree with Mr. Lincoln Park, and I live in Edison park. What I want to know is, when will us lowly civilians be allowed to defend ourselves with concealed carry, or at the very least, able to own handguns in our own homes? I shouldn't have to depend on the police to save my ass in an emergency. I like the fact that they exist, but I think the system is broken. 911 is never quite fast enough. My family shouldn't have a right to be victims. I think that's sick. I hope most of the cops out there feel the same way, because as a disarmed citizen, it really sucks. At least you guys can take your piece home with you. I have to leave mine in another state!

Dear EPR,

It's a safe bet that a vast majority of department members agree that you should be allowed to bear arms, particularly within your household, to protect you and your family.

Legal or not, if you feel you should have a weapon in your home for protection then you should get one and train to handle and store it safely and use it effectively. Don't assume owning one in Chicago automatically makes you an outlaw in the eyes of every police officer out there.....if you know what I mean. Better to risk the possibility of a UUW charge justifiably defending yourself against someone trying to do you harm than have your family and friends cry at your funeral.

agreed. But when I show up with a pistol and have a FOID that has a Chicago address, don't I need to worry that the range owner's going to rat me out when he sees me bring in my own pistol?

Right now I just keep my guns in wisconsin, and have a membership at a gun club up there, but that's only once a month, if I'm lucky that I get to the range for an hour or so. I'd like to be shooting 50-100 rounds a week if possible until I get better. I can do a 5-6" group at 12 yards but that's not good enough.

I have heard rumors that most cops have this mentality. If they have no reason to believe you are using a gun for offensive purposes, they don't ask questions. That's as it should be. The gun ban doesn't work anyway.

Next I'd like to know just how many crimes have been solved with the registration database. It's only $20/gun but over the years, that adds up!

Rat you out to who?

And for what reason?


No gun shops or ranges within the city limits.

Why would anyone want to discourage your business?

If you're that worried, put some distance between the city and your range of choice.

I'd post some suggestions, but that would deprive you of the adventure.

Rat me out to the Chicago police. You don't think it's possible that there are do-gooders who seek to inform law enforcement of a possible gun ordinance violation? Sounds far-fetched, but who knows, right?

I don't see what the big deal is though; I mean really - I've been to a few ranges around the area and rented pistols, and the clientele present at the time is quite far from the ghettofabulous asshats you guys deal with from day-to-day.

I guess I was just wondering if the police ever received calls reporting people that haven't committed any crime, other than the fact that they may or may not possess an unregistered weapon in their residence. And if they did..do they even respond? Who gives a shit anyway, right?
