Stupidity Revisited

This is a revelation to no one who pays attention:
  • To slow down the ever-increasing number of armed robberies in Oak Park this year, police are hoping falling temperatures will help chill the crime wave.

    There has been a more than 130 percent increase in armed robberies in 2008 compared with the same period last year, officials said, and although crime usually drops once school begins, there has been no respite this time, said Police Chief Rick Tanksley.
And the source of the increase?
  • Police cite the country's economic situation and believe many of the offenders are Chicago residents crossing over the Austin Boulevard border looking for easy targets.

    "Some predators may see Oak Park as the promised land," Tanksley said.
Oak Park is an overly liberal suburb of Chicago. We've spoken to people who relate police stories difficult to believe. Stories about being ordered not to patrol alleys, not to perform traffic stops on roving gangs of Chicago licensed vehicles, told every crime is to be a detective follow-up, and no proactive policing whatsoever.

The entire story stirred a memory of two years ago, a reporter from the "Chicago Parent" magazine who related a story about picking up three young hitchhiking rapscallions from Austin wandering the leafy streets of Oak Park with some tale of woe, who almost ended up killing the reporter. As you might expect, she felt bad about defending herself and maybe injuring someone who would have killed her over an automobile without a seconds hesitation.

Seems things haven't changed in Oak Park much - willfully blind victims offering themselves up to the lawless element of society. And then wondering why they get assaulted, battered, robbed and even killed.

"...not to patrol alleys..."

We have that here too, and not to patrol side streets. Just put those damn speEDBUumps in and I and most other P.O.s will avoid driving down them. Drive over a couple of hundred speEDBUmps a shift and you will get the idea.

Then get blamed for something going wrong with the car due to the stress like cracked oil pans and windshields, loose exhaust pipes.

Like maybe Richie ought to put all that asphalt into fixing potholes, but that would make too much sense than more speEDBUmps.

I used to dispatch for the consolidated agency that handles Oak Park (Tha OP). I have never heard any of the stuff SCC is saying about not patrolling alleys, etc. The OP coppers I encountered were totally professional, and when the shit hit the fan, they would saturate the area, and usually catch the bad guys. I think the problem lies with the yuppie types who walk around with their heads in the sand, thinking that nothing bad will ever happen to them, even though the worst district in Chicago is just across Austin Av. That's right, don't lock your garage door, or secure your car, or even watch what's going on around you---the po-leece will take care of everything. Yeesh...

I will never forget interviewing a white female Oak Park resident at West Suburban hospital many years ago who was beaten, robbed and raped in an alley by a black male. She expressed sympathy for her rapist saying how she felt it wasn't an attack on her personally but rather on society as a response to hundreds of years of oppression. She rationalized her attack as an inevitable symptom of a much greater problem, not simply some animal violating an innocent individual.

Despite her bruises and bleeding she was uncooperative in providing a useful description of her attacker and I could not change her mind about her thinking. Very little was done that night to prevent the same thing from happening to the next victim and she was OK with that. Unreal, but it was unfortunately very real.

The out-of-towners here for the race were easy pickings. But not a word from the newsies about this can be found. Can you imagine what'll happen if the Olympics come here.

Back in the 60's we were forced to move out of Austin when I was a kid. Ended up at Oak Park River Forest H.S. Around 1970 is when OP started to change. All dress codes at HS were pitched and the hippies/yuppies and the liberals swarmed in. Then the culture to promote diversity in OP developed and now the problems started.

OP was going to manage who comes and go's by building cul-du-sac's along it's side streets at Austin Blvd.

40 years later, the liberals still don't get it. I don't wish harm on one, but WTF !

As far as the coppers go, all that I have met are great guys and will still back 'em up on the Boulevard.

I know of a male white resident that was approached by 3 M-1 savages asked for the time then beaten nearly to death. This occurred the previous year and the male white was killed. Some believe it is a gang initiation both victims were coming from the train when approached. These incidents occurred in 2005-2006, still unsolved and a good indicator of the animals roaming O.P.

Not so long ago I had a incident with the wife (arguement) after too many coctails for both. Some liberals called the Poleece. The officers where very understanding and foregiving.I was sent on my way and even offered a ride home.I have also had need for the police to go to my wifes office for a problematic customer and the response time was fantastic. The officers did the right thing and made sure my wife was okay. I have nothing but good things about oak park PD and I wouldnt wish them any more work then they already have. Remember they have the same job we have except everyone looks at them as the problem.

I have an 11 year old boy who ask me, whats going on in this country with all the racist remarks about Obama. I told him that these are just a few uneducated people who have been feed by Sarah Palin to scare Americans. I'm a female Hispanic police officer. My family comes from Texas I can go back 5 generations as Americans. And have no family in Mexico. My Brother is a Doctor living in San Diego I have to brothers in the military one is a tank officer in the Marines another is army Jag-officer. I'm the only female in my family we are all in our late 40's my Mother was a homemaker my father an engineer. I would hope that at some point in your lives you realize how much damage you do to American when you repeat such insulting lies. Because all that you do is humiliate yourself. I told my son to pity these people as they know not what they do.

10/18/2008 11:50:00 PM

That's right. To question Obama, is to be a racist. I can't (or should I say, don't) want to belive your actually a cop. For one, your comment is so littered with grammatical errors ;that I would belive your 11 year old son wrote it. I'm not a big fan of any of the presidential canidates, but I do know one thing is for sure. If some white guy, with 2 years in the senate and ties to radicals said he wanted to be president, the democratic party would laugh in his face. Sarah Palin has not "feed" into my distrust in Obama. She dosen't need to (by the way, "to" is a homonymn along with two and too. they aren't interchangeable, even though they sound alike. So when your talking about your brothers, just use the number pad. It'll be easier on your simple mind.). Democratic police officers, should be an oxymoron. Link cards, higher taxes,social security for 17 year olds, and free health care for crack heads, are all part of the democratic handbook. They are also something I hear coppers bitch about every day.
So look lady, while I'm sure your very proud that your family has ascended to civil service work, don't run around calling every republican a racist. You'll just end up seeming petty and uneducated. The call of "racism", is indicative of someone who is fresh out of arguments. In short, go sell crazy somewhere else. We're all full up here.

P.S. quoting Jesus Christ's plea to God asking mercy for his persecutors, and applying it to a political debate, I find particularly offensive. I heard something very simalar in lock-up the other day. A guy was locked up for burglary, but it was all good, because he was "covered by the blood.". What a joke.

According to the contract and state law the FOP leaders can do nothing to impede the normal operations of the Police Department. If they were even to suggest a slowdown or any type of job action other than informational picketing the city would then have just cause to go to court to have the union decertified and tear up the contract.

So much for your theory about having balls.

But if you have the balls, why don't you write the Mayor a letter saying you are doing nothing until you get a good raise and then let the rest of us know how it works out.

If there WERE a '...large amount of weapons on our streets...', presuming that you mean that a large number of citizens had weapons on their persons while being '...on the streets...', then there would likely also be a large number of dead predators on our streets.


Since that has not been the case, we can conclude that not only are there NOT a '...large amount of weapons on our streets..', but, rather, that there are, in fact, TOO FEW weapons on our streets, as in too few citizens carrying with them the means, ie., 'weapons', to defend themselves against those who choose to impose their violent ways upon those who have not the means to defend themselves.


As for the causations of 'robberies', I suggest that, should the quoted poster be interested in understanding the reasons why some individuals commit robberies, and others do not, he, or she, should seek out those who do commit robberies and ask them.

It would be prudent, however, to have a few hundred dollars, in cash, upon one's person, prior to making such inquiries, as those to whom you would be posing your questions might not be pleased with spending their valuable time conversing with you for nothing.


Good luck in your pursuit of knowledge and enlightenment.

OT

I was just looking at my union's website that apparently endorses Obama for president.

My central issue with Obama is that he is a result of the Chicago political machine. A pruned character, a golden child that was chosen by the almighty Chicago democrats. Not to mention that I truly believe he is a closet Marxist.

I don't know about you guys but I've had my fill of Chicago democrats. He claims if McCain is elected it will be more of the same... I'd rather have McCain's more of the same than Obama's more of same. If McCain is the next Bush then Obama is the next Daley. Daley in the White house... God, that is truly a terrifying thought.

Directly under the union's blatant endorsement of Senator Daley... er Obama, is a plea for us to vote no for a constitutional convention. This con-con is claimed to cost an estimated 100 million if held and the topics decided on could have a negative impact on unions. One of the points of opposition states, "the convention will most likely be administered by the current politicians that have created a virtual stalemate in Springfield".

Lets see... Democrat mayor, governor, senator, state reps and congressmen: democrats are the majority in this state as well as the federal government. This city is going to hell in a hand basket due to democrats' irresponsibility, mismanagement and backdoor deals... and we want to elect a product of Chicago politics for president?

How can democrats be the cause AND solution to all our problems?

P.S. quoting Jesus Christ's plea to God asking mercy for his persecutors, and applying it to a political debate, I find particularly offensive. I heard something very simalar in lock-up the other day. A guy was locked up for burglary, but it was all good, because he was "covered by the blood.". What a joke.

Although I agree with the sentiment of your post, you REALLY, REALLY should have proofread it first, because you sort of destroyed your own credibility regarding your criticism of the other poster and HER grammatical capabilities. SHEESH!!!!

OPRF High School acknowledges that at least 5% of their students are booted each year for "address fraud". Note that OPRF's biggest issue at present is "underperforming black male youth", causing both 80% of a discipline problems and failing to meet the "No Child Left Behind" minimum test standards. OPRF is really two schools, a suburban college prep and a tough inner city "GE" high school, functioning in a single building.

OP also is the drug market of choice for many suburbanites unwilling to drive into the west-side. There are many suburban motorists found with hard drugs in the car, or overdosing in their car.

OP has had at least two murders in recent years, once solved (woman murdered in her apartment by burglar) and UICC professor bludgeoned in a "mistaken identity" where a OP resident has said he was the intended victim. OP residents are now being mugged in broad daylight at gunpoint, or by roving youths on bicycles who steel bicycles out from underneath cycling adults and children, or have their garages and homes burglarized while at home. OP's Police Chief tends to "blame the victim", telling us we need to be more vigilant rather than increasing the quality of patrols.

OP has the highest tax rate of any suburb. Our tax bills are truly outrageous, and coupled with high home prices, moving to OP requires a deliberate decision to pay significant premium housing costs. It is a beautiful community, has an excellent library, good schools, decent shopping, etc. But the crime-rate is disproportionate. No one is willing to acknowledge that more aggressive policing is desparately needed.

I think you can be "liberal", and still want police protection and community safety.

****SCC YOU GOT IT WRONG!!!****

According to Oak Park's own ultra liberal newspaper The Wednesday Journal, ARMED ROBERIES ARE UP 250%!!!!!


We didn't get anything wrong. The Tribune might have gotten it wrong, but we quoted them.

Wednesday Journal, OP's weekly newspaper, later apologized for inflating "250% armed-robbery increase" percentage. But I think it was 18%, from 2007 to 2008. Note that in Summer of 2007, several OP men were robbed and/or beaten mid-day while in their alley-facing home garages. These several incidents prefaced the discussion of whether alleys were even patrolled by OP Police. Again, Police Chief's statement rambled on about "being careful in the alleys", as if it was ludicrous to think you can toodle-around in your garage on a Saturday afternoon and expect to be safe from west-side black male hoodlums. There, I said it. OP's crime isn't committed by its college-educated adult base, or by its priveleged college-bound youth.

OP's Chief has even said residents need to be careful when their riding their bikes, and avoid parks and other places were youth may congregate. Huh?

OP's policing focus is on parking tickets, and stupidity like "moving violation citations" for riding your bicycle on the sidewalk rather than the street. It's nearly impossible for condo and apartment residents to consistently find convenient all-night on-street parking, and our parking meters are at $1/hour. But it's ok for suspect-looking kids and adults to wander through the community unchecked and unquestioned, and police don't respond until the crime's occurred.

oak park has actually had 4 murders in the last 5 years. the women that got beaten in her department was solved by forest park due to a similar burglary pattern. the professor is a lost cause. two gang bangers dies within the last year. one on division west of austin. the other one was austin steps away from roosevelt when the guy came back from another bangers funeral. you must all remember, its a nuclear free zone. oh ya, hand guns too. the ones in blue working the street are the only normal ones.

Hey guys,I just want to say while the residents of oak park are very liberal, the police their are very good to us. Not so long ago I had a incident with the wife (arguement) after too many coctails for both. Some liberals called the Poleece. The officers where very understanding and foregiving.I was sent on my way and even offered a ride home.I have also had need for the police to go to my wifes office for a problematic customer and the response time was fantastic. The officers did the right thing and made sure my wife was okay. I have nothing but good things about oak park PD and I wouldnt wish them any more work then they already have. Remember they have the same job we have except everyone looks at them as the problem.

I don't know what CRACK you are smoking but no officer I work with would move to ANY of those suburbs. What is the difference between any of those four and Shitcago? Slightly bigger yards in OP and Evanston?--the houses cost just as much as Shitcago homes and the people who live there are TWICE as liberal as the neighbors I already have. I see more HUSSEIN yard signs driving down Augusta than I do anywhere in Shitcago. There would be no difference living in one of those "burbs" as there would living where I live now. No thanks you can keep that shit too, I'll be moving to DuPage Co. if I am going anywhere. At least there the criminals get a little more than the slap on the wrist they get in Cook Co.

But guns are the problem when it comes to crime. Guns always put the guy with one at an advantage. Sure, you would then have to use knives or bats, but how many have the balls to go that route? Got to get pretty close to stick that knife in the ribs, eh?

This one gets my goat cuz Tansely is an incompetent boob that has no business being the Chief of any department let alone Oak Park since it borders the armpit of hell also known as Austin and the Mortally wounded Galewood...

OPPD is bad to their people so much so that their turn over rate is worst among any mid-sized departments. I have a lot of great friends on OPPD and they are honestly punished for doing proactive police work- the thought being Oak Park doesn't want the flood of complaints like they have in Chicago!!!! Sadly, Chief Tansely is only there because of the color of his skin, despite the fact that he has two CR-equivalents that would keep any CPD Lt. away from exempt status. One of the beefs is an awful sexual harrasment beef that almost (and should have) cost him his job and did cost the city of Oak Park lots of $ in a settlement. The liberals of Oak Park better wake up before they lose every good copper they have and before robberies are up 400%!

jeeez we think we have it bad... talk to an Oak Park Copper they are treated like dog Sh*t

I have an 11 year old boy who ask me, whats going on in this country with all the racist remarks about Obama. I told him that these are just a few uneducated people who have been feed by Sarah Palin to scare Americans. I'm a female Hispanic police officer. My family comes from Texas I can go back 5 generations as Americans. And have no family in Mexico. My Brother is a Doctor living in San Diego I have to brothers in the military one is a tank officer in the Marines another is army Jag-officer. I'm the only female in my family we are all in our late 40's my Mother was a homemaker my father an engineer. I would hope that at some point in your lives you realize how much damage you do to American when you repeat such insulting lies. Because all that you do is humiliate yourself. I told my son to pity these people as they know not what they do.

I grew up in Berwyn. During the 1960s, 70s and even early 80s, it was considered pretty conservative. (Some would say - too conservative)

Then everything changed. Robberies went up. Someone stole a couple of deck chairs off our front porch - and the cops said, "well it was just property - no one got hurt." I will never forget that.

I moved out in the early 1990s (like so many others "to get away" - INCLUDING the police who did not need residency anymore). I went far - about 35 miles away because the area - including Oak Park and Riverside were getting run down.

Prices in the "good suburbs" Hinsdale, Western Springs, Burr Ridge even Westmont were out of sight and unaffordable. You had to move far away to afford something decent.

Oak Park was always considered liberal (but integtation seemed to be confined to its south side and not its north side. HMMmmm??).

I recently had a chance to walk around Lake Street Business district. After seeing the overcrowded condos, lack of parking, and scummy people walking around, I am glad I moved out and would never move back in close NO MATTER WHAT GAS PRICES GO TO.

You can keep the city, the close-in suburbs, and all the "diversity" that goes along with it. I would not pay overinflated prices for rundown houses and small condos that are surrounded by crime and "liberal" people that are clueless.

In the last 15 years, as someone else put it - those close-in towns are nothing more tnan another ward in the city.

The REAL joke is what house and conco prices are - if you bought in the last two years. Good luck in trying to get what you paid for. More people have woken up and realize paying $300K for a piece of crap to be close in, may have been a huge mistake.

As for the higher priced suburbs like Riverside (which is getting pretty shabby now), they are too close-in too. I was told not to buy anything east of 294 back in 1992 by a Hinsdale realtor. I am glad I listened to her - even though we could not afford Hinsdale.

Anyone who bought into those close-in suburbs at the real estate market crest 2 years ago - good luck trying to get 30% less than what you paid for. That would be doing good.

And in any suburb that has a gun law? Why don't they just put on their city sign - Victimville - home of the chumps?
