Nowhere is Safe

  • Two people were wounded Thursday in a shooting on Chicago's North Side, and a third person was hurt after running into a wall while trying to escape the gunfire, authorities said.

    The shooting occurred about 3 p.m. in the 1600 block of North Orchard Street in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, a few blocks east of the North/Clybourn Red Line station.
  • Two people were killed early Friday morning in what police said apparently were separate drive-by shootings on the Northwest Side.

    The first shooting happened about 1 a.m. when the victim, [...] was standing with a half dozen friends in the 1900 block of West Crystal Street in Wicker Park as a vehicle slowly pulled up.
  • Separately, about 5 miles away, a man was shot and killed about 3 a.m. in the 3400 block of West Diversey Avenue in Logan Square.
It's looking like that 20% rise is going to be 30% by the end of the year.

Hey SCC:

You know what makes me feel better about this whole ugly situation? The fact that I'm on furlo and collected a paycheck (once again) for doing almost NOTHING. Come to think of it, I haven't written a mover in about 14 years, and the last parker written was to a jagoff that blocked my pregnant wife from getting out of the garage to get to a doctor's appointment - about 4 years ago!

I never quite understood the old-timers when they said "Kid, one day you'll figure this job out - if you're not killed or indicted first". I figured it out, all right. Just wish I had a lot earlier.

So, for a few more years, I've got to just keep on doing what I'm doing - NOTHING. Then I can leave this asshole of a city and county and never look back. I truly feel sorry for the guys and gals who just can't grasp the reality of it all.

Stay safe, and remember that YOU AND YOUR PARTNER are all that matter at the end of the tour. Get home safely to your loved ones. Fuck this City, County, Daley and the Department, not to mention the hundreds of others that have slipped my mind after too many vodka-lemonades.

The mere thought of roving bands of Scandanavian gangbangers in Lincoln Park is unacceptable.

Aside from packing nines, they're littering our streets with empty Flamin' Hot Cheeto bags and 40 ouncers. Mentholated cigarette butts are everywhere.

It could be a 600% jump. It wont matter the Olympics are coming!!! Daley has paid for them already and they are coming!!! I fear it will be a disaster Chicago will be named the host city of the games in October 2009 the odds in Vegas are 2-1 Chicago gets it. If Daley is still in office during the years of 2010 - 2016 the Chicago Olympics will be considered the worst ever it will be so mismanaged that the city will go down the tubes. If Daley were the CEO or CFO of a big company he would have been fired awhile ago. Once your city is named to hold the Olympics your stuck with them. Hopefully Daley wont be running the city and maybe the Olympics could be a plus instead of a minus.

I live on the North side and at the Dominick's on Lincoln and Foster yesterday I saw four vice lords. I followed them and saw them entering into an apartment with their groceries at around 6000 N. Western Ave.

A day after, while going to work, I observed several MLD's hanging out at Irving Park and Central. There goes the neighborhood folks.

We don't have enough cops and those we do have from the "safe districts" (i.e. 020, 016, 019, etc...) we put their gang teams, drug teams in 007, 025, 015, 011, etc... and guess where the shitheads go? Obviously since there is more heat put on them in their home turf, they will move to greener pastures and that would be where we decent people live!

And yet the mayor is still talking about laying off police!

"...the city's $420 million deficit and before mayoral advisers warned that the city's worst budget crisis in a generation could trigger well over 1,000 layoffs, including police officers and firefighters."

quoted from: http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/1110978,CST-NWS-cuts16.article

Probably not going to happen, but that means no new hires for a long long time. I think that rumor about no new hires until sometime next year is absolutely true.

I'd like to see how fast crime would go down if the next five or six shootings ended up with the offender getting shot and killed by a law-abiding citizen who has a gun.
Considering that most of these little cocksuckers are teenage wanna-be Jeff Fort's, I'd say crime might drop dramatically.

There is absolutely NOTHING plus about hosting the Olympic Games.
The only host city (to my knowledge) that ever made a profit was Los Angeles and that was only because they had the infrastructure already in place.

Hosting the Olympic Games will bring utter and complete financial ruin to what's left of this city.

It aggravates me to no end that just because king ritchie wants the Olympic Games we're going to get them.

Are we at 900 murders yet? If not this is only chump change. In the early 70s and for quite a while we did have 800 to plus 900 murders every year. Guess what, it was still gangbangers killing each other over dope territory and who can steal what and where. THe gangs have incorporated younger assholes into the killing fields.

This is not the fault of the police, legit tax payers, home owners etc. it is not even the fault of the fire department.

If someone wants to affix blame lets start with the gangbangers, their closest friends the alderpeople such as Troutmens, Mell and his buttbud Blago until stealing money came between them. look at the westside and southside alderpeoples. Look at judges and lawyers. But start with the bangers and their friends, there is the blame.

Just think if we hit 900 murders, city hall would be shitting in their pants. Yes we would have troops on the street but not Blagos National Guard it would be the 1st Marine Div.

And yet nothing seems to transform the nature of the beasts.


The point was that, until those controlling our city and county governments are directly affected by what the residents of the west and south sides are, nothing will be done.

Because, as you, an ardent observer of race related issues, must already know, the residents of the west and south sides can't seem to manage to understand the correlation between the actions of those they continue to reelect and the lack of civility practiced by their neighbors, their relatives and their offspring.

Thats real smart! So when I shoot someone and I had 2 beers They will fire me for shooting drunk!

8/16/2008 11:27:00 AM

If you shoot Pookie, they might fire you. If you don't shoot Pookie, you'll be fucking DEAD.

You don't think off-duty PO's can be murdered? Have you been reading the news, or even SCC, in the last week?

Any PO that doesn't carry off-duty is a toolbag. It's not about protecting Shortshanks. It's about protecting yourself. But if your self-worth is so low that you don't think your own life is worth protecting, hey, you know yourself better than I do.

There are no "safe areas" anymore, and there haven't been for some time. Saw a letter recently written by a white female PO who was out with her infant daughterbcomplaining about gangbangers flashing LK signs at other kids in the Chicago Ridge Mall. Although she praised the Police response out there after she called, she complained about a lack of mall security.

The fact is, when you walk into these situations, the only security around is going to be YOU.
Anyone in law enforcement who leaves the house unarmed is a fool.
If you're out with your kids, you're an even bigger fool.
After reading this female POs letter, I realized that poor training is poor training. Take what you need with you to protect you and yours. Never let your guard down. Thugs have money and vehicles too, and they frequent many of the same places you do.

I live on the North side and at the Dominick's on Lincoln and Foster yesterday I saw four vice lords.

A day after, while going to work, I observed several MLD's hanging out at Irving Park and Central. There goes the neighborhood folks.

As a citizen, I appreciate the job that Police Officers do keeping us safe.

I live around Montrose/Central, can you tell me what MLD stands for? It is a gang name according to the P.O. who made the original post.

Stay safe out there.

We don't have enough cops and those we do have from the "safe districts" (i.e. 020, 016, 019, etc...) we put their gang teams, drug teams in 007, 025, 015, 011, etc... and guess where the shitheads go? Obviously since there is more heat put on them in their home turf, they will move to greener pastures and that would be where we decent people live!

Any of you officers looking for court time, please ride by the 5100 blk. of avers and the general area.

Both of those homicides were in 014. Last night 2 more shot in 014 at Central Park/Barry. In Friday's "Meet your Commander'" 1400 says he wants Cease Fire/current bangers to come in and address roll call. Open communications and understand what they are about. Hey dummy, 1400, we already know what they are about. We see it everyday. Like these fools say, "can't stop wont stop." J-Fraud stooge!

8/16/2008 06:23:00 PM


As a citizen, I think it is reprehensible that Cease Fire has ANY legitmacy within the City or CPD and think it's insulting to make sworn police officers have to endure listening to these morons at roll call.

Just keep dumbing it all down Weis. You think normal citizens endorse or for that matter see ANY value in this kind of activity?

Yeah, some people with an axe to grind have retaliated for misdemeanors, as well as felonies and have said as much when pinched. You had nothing to worry about when you weren't the police, but if you could have carried then legally you would have, so carry now and protect yourself and your family.

I won't insult you, but please read on.

I was in a western suburb enjoying a nice dinner with the family, when the hostess seated a group at the next table. Alas, one of my felony arrestees sat down not 10 feet from me. Now, he could have had me long before I saw him, if his purpose in being there was to do me in, but once I made him, I was glad I chose that evening to carry off-duty. At least I and mine would have a chance if something went terribly bad from the point I observed him, instead of no chance at all.

My homeroom Sergeant told us that an off-duty weapon should never take you anywhere you wouldn't normally go without a weapon, but it is nice to have when the unexpected happens at a location where you would normally feel safe.
