Deleted Comments

As stated earlier, we deleted a number of comments in the "Horrors" post. Most wished ill upon the officers and although most are speaking from the gut and even more feel that way, we just didn't think those should be out there at this time. It was a judgment call on our part and if we erred on the overly cautious side, we're sorry you feel that way. We'll take the heat.

We also deleted a number of comments directing their vitriol at us. Through the magic of the internet, we present a few of the more vile comments to show you what twisted psyches inhabit the void, most likely liberal cop-hating trolls living in mommy's basement:
  • [critique of our grammar]...why not offer an apology to all the "shitheads" whose murders you so enjoyed and tacitly promoted these past few months?
We promoted murder? That's a stretch and some sort of meth-induced fantasy. We'd love to see those posts. Care to quote them? We'll pay you a dollar per instance of "promotion." As to "enjoying," welcome to the world of dark humor and sarcasm.
  • [insane ramblings about murder] You reap what you sow, SCC. And you have sown a field of rotten filth. But take heart, it's a bumper crop.
Again with the accusations of advocating homicide. Where has SCC ever said, "Kill people"? It's never happened. Maybe your brain is warped? Definitely a possibility.
  • [blah blah blah, SCC cheers for murder] ...and the victims are little kids. Doesn't "Chalkie" come in Jr. sizes? MURDER IS NEVER FUNNY. KARMA IS A BITCH. Post ALL comments of take down this blog.
We'll decline your demands on principle. We tried posting all comments once and.... let's just say it didn't work that well.

And again, we never said murder is funny, but we manage to find dark humor in just about everything. We learned at the feet of the masters. We've never advocated unjustified killing, but we've pointed out the rank hypocrisy of "reverends" and their flocks turning a blind eye to the carnage of their communities, pillorying the police for bringing the killers to heel who terrorize their neighborhoods. We've lamented the fact that certain segments of society have supported the murderers of small children in the face of all evidence to the contrary just to make a buck. We've laughed at the stupidity of the gang bangers, gunning each other down in some bizarre ritual over territory or disrespect or anything else that demonstrates a complete unwillingness to act as if they had a shred of decency or moral fiber.

We'll continue to laugh when we can, scream if we have to and rage when we must.

Thank you SCC. Deleting some comments shows compassion.
As for the dark humor, I understand. Sometimes it's just a way to keep your sanity. As nurses, we have to do it too.

SCC, Good for you! There is a time for dark humor and there is never a time to darken the lives of children who unfortunatley died under horrible circumstances. Heck, even you and I disagree at times and call each other names, but that's what family does, yes, even police family, get mad, and make up.

___________________________________

Obviously you are not the police and you will never understand what really goes on. A majority of the murders in the city of Chicago are morons with rap sheets 2 miles long and they are involved in a gang or involved in dope sales. No one on this blog enjoys the murder of an innocent child or person, but when someone is slinging dope and they end up dead, this is part of the job description of a low level gang banging, dope dealer. You must get all of your information from the newspapers because have you ever seen when an “innocent” person “in the wrong place at the wrong time” gets killed, does the media have the balls or the reporting morals to publish that this person was arrested for 50 felonies? F*ck no they don’t. Don’t hold your breath on the apology d*ckhead. Go back to reading Mary Mitchell, Dawn Tripe Turner, and Suzie Snowflake (Oak Park paper).

Do you remember Mr. “Innocent” SpongeBob baggy pants that never carried a gun? Go check his webpage holding not one gun, but two and throwing up a gang sign in another picture.

Funny how Jody knew the exact number of comments on a particular topic.

I would guess that there are many more officers who read the blog and never post, perhaps as many as 10 times more.

Given that simple, and probably conservative, assumption, that would mean that those 434 comments Jody referred to were read by at least 4,3430 people, mostly officers.

Insignificant? I don't think so, not when both major daily newspapers and the Superintendent and every boss read it regularly.

If it were insignificant Jody would never have heard of it. What truly is insignificant is the Department's own blog.

However, I do applaud his efforts on behalf of Mike Mette and his efforts, whatever they may be, at getting actual real pilot programs in place to try alternative work schedules. In over 25 years this is the closest the CPD has come to ridding us of that deadly 6/2 schedule.

That is the best thing to happen to the rank and file police officer since straight shifts.

Believe this or not, the FOP officers and the negotiating committee have worked long and hard on this one. Give them a lot of credit, they did very good on this one.

"Aggressive Professionals" is an oxymoron.

Patrol division is tired of pushing numbers for exempts. How about you 100K-or-more making S.O.B.s try to help us get a decent contract? We've helped you retain your 'spots' in the past, and what have we got to show for it? "Good Job!"? Go blow!

Like a great comment that was posted here before:

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE SWIPE RECORDS FOR THE FIRST DEPUTY AND ALL DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENTS!!! STANDING AROUND THE MANY WEEKLY HOMICIDE SCENES DOING NOTHING DOES NOT CONSTITUTE GOOD POLICE WORK.
Hell - I'd like to see the swipe records for all the part time SGTs at HQ and in units. Its always nice to have the boss quickly leave after getting in 2 hours late, tell you to call him/her on the cell if anything BIG happens, then don't answer the phone. Also nice to have to ambush one of them to get a report approved before the court date is come and gone. Don't try to tell them a Watch Commander from a district is on the Pax because the hold papers are at 30+ hours, the part time boss will refuse to take the call.

Hey - maybe THATs how they can help solve the city budget crunch. Create the part time SGT job, not for patrol, but those other less publicly viewed assignments. Retired types get hired back for 32 hours a week w/o benefits. Save a ton of dough and might really get our moneys worth. Can't be any worse than 20-25% of the line supervisors drawing a full paycheck w/benefits, maybe a city take home car that don't do anything of a police nature.
Might have stumbled onto a good concept here.

Ah, the mindless liberals...

Let's put this into language you might understand.

None of us want to see innocents killed. We DO however find the poetic justice of piece of shit gangbangers offing each other. Our 'glee' is in watching what YOU have created. We aren't allowed to police anymore - but we still have front row seats to the circus.

The horror is when 1 of our own - for reasons not to be discussed in a public forum has given up. The pain so overwhelming that this person saw no other options.

You have no concept of what we encounter and the evils we fight against on the streets. Seeing one of our own lose that fight is something you cannot ever comprehend.

The world is a f'd up place and if you dont want to come on here and see how those who deal with it...deal with it, you don't have to. Filter what you want scc.

You mean the part that says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

So you are agreeing that SCC takes the place of Congress? You agree to abide by our will, our rules, our way of doing things? You are in essence, submitting to the authority of SCC?

You're a fucking moron then.

You have no Freedom of Speech here. If we want this to become one big echo chamber, we can do that. We don't because it wouldn't be in our best interests, but we could. And if we don't want to publish people who call us names, second guess our career choices, or whatever, then we don't have to.

You also have the freedom not to come here - visits aren't mandatory. Yet.

SCC,

Your definition of the 1st amendment is right on. This is your sandbox, and your rules. Their speech has not been abridged, they can rant (and do) in some cop-hating blog, or even the mainstream media. This is not protected speech, you are not acting under the authority of the government. Fairness? Is it fair that they tell you what to say and what to print? End of debate.


It amazes the crap out of me. They come into our area, and expect to be hugged and encouraged to scream something inflammatory? Cuddly liberals would say "we would" Well...

What if you went into some liberal, tofu-gobbling, brie nibbling, clueless "intellectuals" rally and started screaming "Obama is nothing but a smooth talking empty suit!" ?

Oh, wait we kind of know. This week Barry Obama asked his mindless followers to flood WGN with calls because the guest on Extension 720 is an Obama critic.

Keep on keeping on. The trolls may rave, but only to themselves. They will lose interest, and be left only with high blood pressure and the need to switch to decaf expresso.

Liberal pukes only worry about freedom of speech when they are the ones speaking. Did you hear about the latest Obama tactic? When these assholes find out that an individual who is critical of the Chosen One is going to appear on radio or TV, the Obama Nazis send out a text message telling his flock to saturate the offending media outlet with calls to suppress the non-believer. This ploy is right out of the Saul Allinsky playbook. An Obama believer wrote that since Sarah Palin described herself as a pitbull, the term bitch was appropriate. Fair enough. Now,since Obama was born to an unwed mother, he is a bastard. Barack the Bastard. Has a nice ring to it. Doesn't it?

In light of recent events perhaps it's time to put things into perspective. First, we all know not everyone is cut out to be the police. Sure we all see a lot of shit but that is never an excuse for bad behavior. We have men and women, 18, 19, 20 years old serving in Iraq who will see far more death and devastation in one tour then most of us will see in a career. The death and carnage they are seeing, the torture victims, the beheading's and such..And let's not forget the second guessing, like the poor Marine who shot the guy after a fire fight who jerked when told to hold still, and it was all captured on camera..Or even those poor fools who took all the heat for what happened at Abu Ghraib..You think our bosses don't back us??? And thank God so few of us, RECENTLY, have had to bury a close friend due to an in the line of duty incident. Imagine those serving in the military who have seen more then one of there friends maimed or killed. And remember how you want to blame the job for thing we do the next time you encounter a homeless Vietnam Vet and he asks you for a dollar or to buy a Street Wise and you tell him to walk on..or someone asks you to donate to a veterans hospital..I'm not suggesting what we do is easy but to blame what we blame on it is just to much of a reach...If you need real help then by all means get it. But if you can't handle this job then quit...

SCC:

Just wondering how many people know your identity. I think a lot of us take you for granted...and running this site as well as you do must take a tremendous amount of work.

Can you tell us more about you (without compromising your identity) and how you got into this? And what keeps you motivated to keep it up?

Whatever happened to the guy who was offering you a million dollars for this site?

Just curious is all. Think you're as mysterious as the Wizard of Oz...and I'm sure you'd be a remarkable person to know. If you weren't married I'd be chasing after you!!!

Just asking...hope you answer.

I've done both, so I can speak to this. You see some stuff over there, but you see more as a cop. Trust me. Contact with the enemy there and contact with the enemy here is not proportional.

Don't sell yourself short. Policing a big city is more dangerous than serving in the military. We do it without the benefit of eyes in the sky and massive amounts of firepower to back us up. We hold the line on our own with pistols and a partner, not a platoon with crew served weapons.
