Terror Expert? Where?

We're assuming everyone has heard about the terror attacks in India. One hundred twenty five dead, including upwards of fourteen policemen. Army and Police elements are clearing buildings and the scenes of chaos and horror are a stark reminder of what is still out there. New York and Washington DC are patrolling their subway systems with fully armed and visible SWAT officers in response to at least one specific threat. We haven't heard that CPD is doing anything different, but we got this e-mail today (language has been altered slightly to conceal the District of assignment):
  • Dear SCC,

    I arrived for work today 20 minutes early. I walked in from the parking lot and noticed how deserted it was, being very early in the AM. There are no cameras there. I walked in the side door of the station. I met no one in the hallway and went to the locker room without seeing a soul. It was a holiday after all.

    And after going back to the main floor, I saw a newspaper and the India attacks and was struck by a sudden thought. What if I wasn't a cop heading in for an early holiday shift? What if I was bent on destruction and I led three vans full of armed terrorists into a parking lot where no one could see us, unloaded a strike team of a dozen or more people bent on doing some real damage? We just waltzed into an unsecured lot, in through a side door, and made it to the locker room. We could have headed to the desk, the WC's office, the radio room, the administrative offices. We'd own that building and everyone in it within 60 seconds.

    The shotguns are locked up and the only key is in the Captain's desk. Haven't seen a rifle yet and aren't likely to if you've seen the desk crew. Did you know the India attacks started out with an assault on a police facility? Has anyone given any thought to this?
We wish we could answer that last question. From what we've seen, the answer is probably no. We aren't saying every police facility should be locked down and machine gun emplacements dug into the lobbies, but it ought to be a bit more realistic than it is now.
  • video security should be upgraded, repaired or deployed in older buildings;
  • some sort of reinforcement ought to be provided to desks;
  • doors ought to be locked and access restricted;
  • long guns should be available to any officer who wants to carry it and can qualify with it - yes, even the desk crew (again, this is common sense - the power test isn't going to mean shit if the above scenario plays out at a police station);
We here at SCC are just coming to terms with the fact that with the president-elect being from here and maintaining a presence here for the duration of his presidency, Chicago hopped up quite a few places in terms of terror targeting. We're wondering if the Department Administration is probably more than a few weeks behind our range of thinking. We're scared they might be months or years behind.

Unfortunately we would prop the doors open, complain about the cameras, and avoid any attempts to improve security. Unfortunately it will not change until there is an incident.

When people comment that THIS DEPPARTMENT IS A JOKE it is not just because of disgruntled, non-contract union employed workers but rather because it is a REAL cause of concern


CPD is probably THE most unsecured, unprofessional, not ready department in the United STates ... AND THAT MAKES US A TARGET!!!

Pretend all you want... bitch all you want... but the truth remains that our liberal founded, under manned, under armed, under everything is much more a concern than a headline in the Lakeview gazette or a blurb on this blog... DO NOT think for a second that Al Qaeda doesnt already know this... and our idiot Mayor is playing right into it

And just as the Clinton administratin did, this Obama admin will play right into the terrorist playbook as well... hell, what better target than the President's home town!

We are fucked... we will most likely get hit and it will be a laundry list of who is at fault I am trying to do all I can do to exit this red and white target ... this blog will prove to be like tthe final Seinfeld... eventhough you think every episode (every post) is about nothing, in the end... it ALL comes back to bite each and every character in the ass god speed Chicago but the shit is coming, and it is coming hard godspeed

Kinda funny the launched the Homeland Security guys from Strategic Deployment a while ago.

The one guy at HQ when I was there told me just how well prepared the CPD was in the event of a Terrorist attack. Lets just say he felt sorry for all of us including himself. His scenerio of a terrorist school event scared the shit outta me.

He basically outlined a way that Daley could plunder the Pensions funds of the City in order to pay for everything related to a terrorist event.

I hope scenerios he outlined never occur...Dont know where he is at now but damn he got me thinking.

A few weeks after the July 2005 bombings in the London subways, I walked past the front of the 024 District in the early evening, but still was light out. I live a couple of blocks away. There was a roped off section about 15 feet in diameter around one of the flagpoles & a backpack was at the base of the pole. There was a uniform out there, a really young guy & I asked him if it was a suspected bomb.
He said he wasn't allowed to say anything. When I went past it again about 30 minutes later, the roped of are was about 30 feet in diameter.
But you still could walk in the front door of the building without anyone stopping you, the rope didn't prevent that.
I found the entire incident sickeningly funny & the response totally incompetent.
If it was a suspected bomb, then why the small area roped off & just one cop, just barely past being a rookie as the guard?
Of course this was a few days after the insane over response to another backpack, that one was left on the south end of the Berwyn L platform & the cops there shut down everything for two blocks around, even closing the Jewel which is at the north end of the platform. The backpack just had clothes in it.
Anyone with half a brain could have figured out that no one is going to blow up Berwyn, there's nothing there to cause a serious problem to the CTA, unlike what would happen in the Loop subways.
It was just pure panic from the geniuses at 35th St after what had happened in London.

As usual you are absolutely correct on larger department issues. However, don't get me started on your love of hockey.

In terms of terrorism targets in the USA we were probably 4th or 5th behind NYC, DC, LA and possibly the Golden Gate Bridge. I suspect we are at least number three now. Unfortunately, whether true or not that is change we have to believe in.

President Elect Obama has raised the profile of this city and that has good and bad effects.

The idea that cops should need to pass a power test to carry rifles is silly, silly, silly. Now I happen to believe that many cops are desperately out of shape, but if they are allowed on the streets rifles need to be available. Shotguns too.

The issue of physical fitness is for another topic. Let's just say that I am not happy working in a department where Adonis like physical specimens like Phil Cline can rise to the top. There's a joke in there somewhere. Perhaps more than one. Remember one rhymes with ton.

We clearly need more SWAT qualified officers and need a team downtown most times of the day. I really don't want to wait for off duty guys to come in from Mount Greenwood and Edison Park as on duty cops armed only with handguns try to defend themselves and others. It wouldn't be pretty.

North Hollywood shootout.

Two bozos armed with automatic weapons managed to hold off more than a hundred cops until SWAT arrived. Also since there are no Gun Shops in Chicago we aren't going to be able to run in and borrow some automatic weapons like the LA cops did.

Terrorist attack downtown in the middle of the afternoon. We damn well would need helicopter transport to get a large number of trained and armed cops their quickly.

Oh well I'm sure some of the retired Exempts can be brought back to work on these issues.

Look at the building that houses 5th District and Area 2 Detective Division. A big steel building with all glass block windows and no emergency exits anywhere but the first floor doors. Not to mention a totally unsecured parking lot with no fencing around it. A person could pull up a u-haul and bang! Everybody is trapped inside.

This city is a FUCKING joke. None of the surveillance cameras have worked in this building in years and 20% of the time the rear parking lot lights (where personnel park) are either out or the timing is so off that they go on when the sun rises.

Mayor Daley is all smoke and mirrors when it comes to Homeland Security in this city. He truly believes it will never happen in the midwest. A city of a few million people right off the lake and Daley believes we are safe and sound.

We got flashlights that last at best 30 minutes and that is at the start of the tour. If an attack killed power to this city, what are we suppose to use?

How many cops do you know bring their gas mask to their vehicles. I doubt if .05% does.

This city and its people are sitting targets. We currently have the next US President living here. You better believe we are a target right now.

Our subways are death traps where a simple accident cause people to be giving ten different instructions from different people from CPD, CFD and CTA.

Daley is also asking for the Olympics here. Thus another reason for Chicago to be a target.

Wake up and smell the coffee folks. If there isn't a kickback, bribe, cash envelope or other benefit included in a city contract, it ISN'T happening. Greed first and then maybe safety to the people.

This scenario could describe most if not all of our facilities. Actually the whole script described exactly what I did that morning, early to work, nobody there, not challenged, walk right in. Our illustrious leaders say it can never happen here. Well I say it can and probably will some day. When that day comes, it will be up to the individual officer to take action and save his or her own life first then to help others in need. It seems there was no point or demands from the terrorists in India other than to create terror. In such a case here, what will our response be? Negotiations? They don't want any, they only want to kill as many of us as they can before they themselves are killed- that is terror. As officers or even as regular citizens we need to look out for what will happen in the future, be prepared. If you are not proficient with your firearm you should train yourself to be proficient even at your own expense. We should also have some sort of first aid training, can you apply a field pressure dressing, do you even know what that is? Can you stop the bleeding? It could make the difference to you or to someone you are trying to help. We aren't only years behind in training for terrorism, we are decades behind in basic training. A carbine for everyone? Sure but how about at least a first aid kit in every car and behind the desk, we can't always wait or depend on an ambulance to get there fast enough to save us. I think I won't wait for the department to supply us with basic needs and training, I would be waiting a long time. Learn something new, it's good for you.

This city is a joke. The way they run this police dept. is a joke.

SCC, Here's my proposal, let me know if it makes sense. sorry for the long post.

anyone who wants to carry an m4 complies with the current order even though it sucks. they must qualify semi-annually with the rifle AND pistol on company dime.

for those who want more firepower but no m4 or powertest - remmington 870 police shotguns w/shot - semi-annual quals with rifle and pistol. add more strict quals for those wishing to have the ability to carry and choose between shot/slug/less-than-lethal. . . . put a little gravy on that turkey and approve the binelli super-nova pump-gun.

the consensus that the m4 will phase out the shotgun is totally crazy - both have their place in modern urban law enforcement.

put this policy in effect and I'd put money on over 70% of CPD coppers immediately purchasing (or registering their already owned) heavier firepower and practicing with it. with the rider that pistol quals are semi-annual, you can also ensure that more po's are at least somewhat proficient with their primary firearms.....


also - put locks INSIDE the car, not the trunk.

allow coppers the opportunity to find/fill their niche within Chicago's law enforcement community- you'll raise morale, boost efficiency and effectiveness, and all they need to pony up for is ammo and locks.

I liken this to allowing the "hot car guy" to ride in the plate reader car with the lo-jack. . .the "warrant guy" gets the working iClear PDT. the "gang/gun/drug guy" gets the unmarked/covert squad. "burglary/robbery guy" gets to adjust his hours to those in which his targeted criminal activity is taking place. "traffic guy" gets the LIDAR and breath tech training. "old timers" get the wagon and respect. list goes on and on. . ..

certain people like to do certain things. allowing po's to work to the best of their personal ability helps everyone.


today's climate has us all doing the same fucking job and we all hate it - answering calls 20 minutes late and scratching a report. that's what the "dogs" are for.

One person with a bomb vest wanders into the crowded lobby of one our stations being used as a warming center....

Look at police stations anywhere they've had to deal with terrorists, Germany and Italy with the Red Brigades, Northern Ireland with the IRA/INLA and what is the common denominator? You can't get into the station. Either you stand outside and talk to someone through an intercom (while being physically observed) or you get into a small contained secure area where you talk to someone through an intercom.... If you have a legitimate police related reason you then get to come inside. Maybe. Not "I's too cold or too hot".

If they want a professional police department, they should start making some better decisions from the top as to keeping that department alive and functioning.

Hey FOP how about a ME-TO clause for this perk? We have been first responders more then they are. Hell they even refuse to respond some times.

They do not want you to shoot a"CPS Honor Student who was getting his shit together" with a rifle. Figure it out. The purpose of the M4 program is two-fold:

1.) Make it look like we are prepared for a jihadist attack in the eyes of the Olympic Committee.

2.) Get as many POs as possible to take the Power test, establishing precedent so they can evetually flunk you and force you off the job when you're in your 40s. Get you off the job so as not to pay you at a senior rate and deny you a pension.

Its all about $$$$$$, Wake Up!

Here's what to do in case of terror attack: Notify SWAT and MSF and TRU and roving gang teams and then set up a perimeter a safe distance away.

What the fuck are regular rank and file police officers with one pistol and two clips (or one revolver and twelve extra rounds) going to do in a true Mumbai style attack?

Get the fuck behind some cover is all.

Citizens beware. You better learn to protect yourself. the National Guard won't be coming either, they are in Afghanistan.

Where are the goddamn fucking M4's we in patrol were promised? I have been shooting M16 variants for over 30 years but I cannot qualify to carry one here because my 50 year old knees get too sore to complete the mile and a half run. I can put a 5.56mm round in your fucking eyeball with iron sights at 100 yards but won't ever get the chance to carry one here.

In an attack, stay calm, disregard orders from idiots, develop your own plan with your buddies and don't put any faith in these incompetent bosses to have the faintest idea of what to do in a shitstorm. In a pinch, stay close to those coppers with military experience. Stay alive.

Mumbai Attacks Reveal Vulnerability of U.S. Cities
Thursday, November 27, 2008 6:04 PM

LONDON — Whatever group lies behind the attacks in Mumbai, security experts say one thing has been made abundantly clear: a massive city can be reduced to mayhem if a group of men is well-enough armed and prepared to die.

Rather than hijacking planes as in September 11, or smuggling delicately wired car bombs into a city, the Mumbai gunmen chose a frontal style of armed assault, killing more than 100 people, wounding around 250 and causing immense panic in a thriving city of 13 million....

Are you fucking kidding me? We can write the report after is all.

You wouldn't have a response in force for an hour at best. And even then, the department's idea of heavy weapons are 12ga shotguns and M4's. And each district has 5 shotguns and zero M4's.

The Marine Unit has refurbished M14's, a very good weapon. I don't know of any other police unit that is armed with anything that is .30 caliber other than the snipers.

Side door in 010 hasn't locked since the first day at the station. Does any boss have it fixed. Nope. Neither Commander 010 has had, had actually secured the station yet. Maybe its a job for 1000Eddie.

This may be cold but realize this brothers & sisters:

It is cheaper to bury us then it would be to give us the means to protect ourselves and citizens. In the 60's & 70's a lot of us carried trumpet cases or other case filled with carbines and other long guns.


There never has been security at any station (except HQs and to be honest it's questionable).


After an incident happens in Chicago you can bet that lil'shortshanks will point the finger of blame at us. He'll be safe with his 35 valets.


But fear not, nobody in authority gives a damn until it happens on their watch.


So stay safe.....watch out for each other....take care of your families......

During TARA training they throw in the stuff that can be a refresher course at roll call training. ( Use of force, car chases, etc. ) They should concentrate more on terrorism training. I also couldn't believe how many guys were whining and crying about being there. Maybe a nuclear cloud over the city will make everybody realize how serious this is.

Very True, and easily observable, even to those not planning an attack! In some districts/areas, the desk job is sought after by fools. Not only does it place them as sitting targets for terrorists, gangbangers, mentally ill, etc... they also get to inhale the tuberculosis, hepatitis and other germ laden air, the entire watch, which is so graciously donated by the "residentially challenged people" which are allowed to inhabit the non-ventilated buildings all winter long (and most of the summer, fall and spring). The best example of this is the 5th District/Area 2 on the South Side. If you have ever visited that place, you would not soon forget it. During the summer months, there is literally an "tent city", consisting of of "residentially challenged people", encamped around the front doors. Yes, encamped around the doors that the public must enter to: make a report, provide information, meet with Detectives Etc....The "5th District/Area 2 tent city" consists of makeshift tents/shelters, box springs and mattresses, laundry (shirts, pants, underwear) hanging to dry across the courtyard. During the winter months these "residentially challenged people" take up residency in the front lobby, under the stairs, a mere 10-15 feet from the desk personnel. Victims, witnesses, and those seeking other services are forced to intermingle with the festering, disease laden "residentially challenged people". God forbid one of these victims, witnesses, or other citizen seeking services has to use the public washroom, which is behind the unsecured gate in the not so secure--secure area. A trip to this washroom may allow you the luxury of witnessing a "residentially challenged person" bathing their genitals in the washbowl...I do understand the departments position....the bosses have been allowing this action for so long, they would have to have these "residentially challenged persons" legally evicted....like any other landlord. Some have been there so long, and have been made so comfortable, they actually list the stations address as their residential address. District 5/Area 2 is not the only District/Area with allows this behavior.....it is just the worst I've ever witnessed.....This department/politically appointed bosses of these Districts/Areas don't care about safeguarding District/Area personnel and citizens seeking service from disease laden "residentialy challenged persons"----you surely jest at the concept of safeguarding employees and citizens seeking services from a terrorist attack that is highly unlikely to ever happen----oh wait, the department's own training--ie..bullet proof mind (LT COl. DAVE GROSSMAN), Tara Training, etc... have stated that; with regards to a terrorist attack, it's not if it will happen, but when it will happen.......oh yeah, the above listed CPD training also stated that Chicago is a very likely target.....LT. COL. GROSSMAN expressed Chicago's lack of preparedness and lack of adequate firepower as two of many reasons why Chicago would be on the top of the terrorists hit list!!!!
Stay safe out there, and IN there!

He would not really care if police were killed, less on HIS payroll and the federal government would step in and provide more money for him to steal.

No! The General Order, as I recall it, states that you gather all the department equipment in your possession and report to the nearest functioning police facility. There's no point going to a district station that has been nuked, is there?
Then, you go behind the desk, pull down your trousers, lean forward, and kiss your ass goodbye. You may also be asked to perform this service for supervisory personnel who, because of their bulk, cannot reach their asses with their own lips. Yum yum.

For an idea of what REAL police station security looks like, visit Phoenix, Arizona. Or even some of the suburbs.

The citizen lobby looks like the lobby of a currency exchange. Bullet-proof glass.

Locked doors.

No one enters unescorted. Total access control.

Everyone swipes/signs in. Even officers from other stations.

Limited glass exposure.

All the new stations have huge front windows of regular glass. One car bomb would kill the entire desk crew and a good portion of the inside staff.

In my unit, locked and secured doors are left open for the smokers and convenience of officers. Despite numerous attempts to maintain some sembelence of security, officers will make attempts to bypass it and put items in doors to keep them unlocked. White shirts alone cannot maintain security. We all have a part. Of course there are no plans to emergencies or drills. Evene a simple fire drill is hopeless. Public schools are far ahead of police buildings in regards to fire and diaster drills. Look to our leaders?

Hello SCC, a 10yrs retired veteran of the CPD who now resides in a small north central Illinois community about 10 miles from Rockford, Il. In my town, by the way, nice and quiet, the PD is small with maybe 12 full time officers and supplemented by part-timers that do the parades and community functions. The small police station, no detention facilty etc. is "downtown". You cannot get any further than the bullet proof cashier style window in a small hallway at the front of the bldg. Camera in place at the door you will be asked to state your business and and officer will then meet you at the service counter, which is behind the b.p glass and you can discuss you issue. Kinda like the CPD with limited access to the bldgs.

I had occasion to go to the Brookfield Police Department last year. That facility is built along the lines of a Chicago Currency Exchange, all of which are more secure than any CPD station.

The only place the public has access to is a waiting area facing a thick glass teller like window. The only way a citizen gets inside the actual facility is by being escorted by an employee after a strong looking steel door is opened.

The entire place is locked down, the way it should be. Your average West Side rib shack or liquor store is more secure than any police station here.

I guess any coordinated attack here would have to begin with the OEMC building. Not too hard to breach that security and then our communications are cut.

A while ago, when OEMC had a computer crash and went down, we reverted to procedures devised in the 1960's. The manual referred to the Illinois Bell phone system that had dial phones, the numbers to switch the 911 calls to the transmitter station in the basement of the area were long ago disconnected.

In short, we were unable to do any type of switchover to handle incoming 911 calls. We could transmit to the cars, that is something. Computer systems, of course, were useless.

The city got many millions of Homeland security money from the Fed after 9/11. Guess who got to decide how it was spent? The same guy who doesn't know how Angelo Torres got promoted to Director of the Hired Truck Program Office, that's who.

With a genius master criminal like Richard M. Daley making the decisions, well, is it safe?

Something to think about & correct me if I'm wrong. BTW and FYI. I ran this by a member of the Shitty of Shitcago's terrorist response team and I'll include his responses to the following scenario.

Scene: Chicago 1345 Hrs. 3 July, 2009

Location: Com Ed power station 33rd and Pulaski

Security Status: Miminal. No Guards at gates, gates open, vehicles come and go unchecked. Power grid from this station controls entire westside of Chicago including but not limited to. 009,10,11,14,15th Districts. Extermely vunerable to terror attack.

History: previously equipment failure resulted in five days of no power and crime out of control after sundown. Police resources at that time strained to the max.

Currently there are several thousand members of middle eastern factions living on Chicago's southside that are unmonitored, as well a large population living in Palos Hills, Palos Heights, Chicago Ridge, Bridgeview, Oak Lawn also unwatched. Just how many of them are sleeper agents. Additionally Detroit has THE largest middle eastern population in the U.S. Chicago does'nt believe in monitoring this groups activities.

Scenario Part I:

Two white windowless vans enter the Com Ed. Parking lot and pull directly up to the building entrance.

(BTW and I'm sure P.O.'s from across the City can confirm this there has been reports of stolen Peoples Energy, Com Ed, Comcast, Police and Fire vehicles that can be used to circumvent any security measures)


12 heavily armed terrorists take of the Com Ed facility with ease. 12 highly motivated with nothing to lose terrorist now control the power plant. As all employees that were present at the time of the take over are no dead, it will take approximately 1/2 hour to an hour for anyone to realize the plant is under seige, that takes us to roughly 1445 or 1500 Hrs. "shift change for CPD. Terrorist no this. Now that the group has dug in and ready to repel attack.

Phone calls flood 911 from Com Ed employees who discover bodies and find station locked down.

First responders 10th District 2nd watch late cars which by the way are one man cars and there are few that arent on jobs.

Terrorist snipers pick off first repsonders one by one as they arrive because they are unaware of the size strength and intent of the offenders.

Responding Officers advise zone of coming under fire and pull back.

Bodies of employees and officers are unreachable by emergency personnel.

NOW THE CLOCK STARTS. CPD notifies SWAT and it would take 1 to 2 hours from them to mobilize and respond to the scene.

The terrorist allow are heavliy armed SWAT TEAM to enter deep into the facility, let them believe they are winning and then detonate high explosives which kill everyone including the SWAT TEAM and the entire facility is destroyed. POWER is down. Emergency personnel swarm in the rescue survivors and treat wounded and then secondary explosive devices go off taking them out.

The brass call in nearby district personnel for support, however consider this. MOST tact teams are already assigned to Taste of Chicago. Resources already starting to stretch.

Night falls , with no power on the westside guess what time it is. Shots fired, persons shot, looting, burglary in progress, assaults, other opprotunistic crimes light up the night.

Unimaginable overtime.

3rd July, 2008

2130 Hrs. Grant Park Chicago,Il.

with resources stretched to the breaking point and minimal security and multiple entrances in and out the Taste of Chicago becomes distraction number two.

20 women enter the event seperately and with well over 1 million people awaiting the taste of chicago fireworks display the women all arrive at the pre-arranged locations. As true believers they act as human bombs and the suicide bombings tear apart the festivities. With no SWAT team to respond specialized units that were already mobilized in uniform to the first bombing and subsequent riots are broken down even further to repsond to twenty different crime scenes within the park, and the chaos that would ensue afterwards would make even more problems. Traffic jams, accidents, 911 center overwhelmed with calls, CFD would quickly be tapped out, hospitals in the affected area would be on bypass.

With the big event yet to come.

The person attached to the Terrorist response team told me that the city has entered into a partnership with surrounding suburban police departments to come into as support units, but what would they do exactly if they don't know the neighborhoods. That person said that the national guard would be mobilized, what's left of them when a large portion of them would be on leave for the holiday or taking a tour in iraq or afghanistan.

Now ask yourself this what percentage of emergency personnel would respond to call backs and not abandon their posts to care for their own family...

Just some food for thought.

Most bosses are too proud or naive to make a statement like that. What did he do about it? He asked if SWAT could have a "special employment" opportunity and work some days off there. GREAT! Finally someone with a brain! Then someone approving the idea makes a typical decision...."NO WALKING AROUND WITH THE RIFLES....IT SCARES PEOPLE." ARE F-ing KIDDING ME?!? So after the first couple of days what happens? Some other genius "doesn't like the green uniforms ar drop holsters....THEY ARE TOO INTIMIDATING.". So now you have SWAT officers patrolling the airport in regular uniform without their rifles so when the shit hits the fan (God forbid) the SWAT officer can run through the terminal to where the rifle is and come back. (and believe me from what the one guy working told me it would only take 5-10 minutes to get where it was and get back to where we were talking). The best part is that I know I got here with help and I admit it. BUT WOULD YOU BELIEVE THE "OLD TIMERS" ARE PISSED BECAUSE...and I quote "THE HAIR GEL POLICE ARE TAKING AWAY MY O.T.!!!"

Dear Mr Mayor,
I am not a police officer, but I do agree with many people who write to this blog, that our CPD is drastically understaffed. I live in the 16th district and at one time, you could get a squad car to answer any call made by anyone in this district.

It is now the biggest joke I have ever seen. If you call 911, sometime you are hung up on before anyone answers the call. So, you call back, and they take your call and no one ever shows up. You call a half an hour later, because the stupid crap you called about is still happening, and they say they have no cars available to assign the job too. WHAT? No available cars? Are you kidding me? So, you call the district and the desk officer tells you there are only 3 or 4 cars working the district at this time, and it is a large district. Give me a break! So some crappy little drug dealer is selling drugs on the corner, probably armed standing right across the street from my house, music blaring, doing whatever the hell they want after 12 AM in the morning, and there are no cars available? This goes on for at least 3 hours and there is never a police car available.

The one time a car comes out, the officer is alone. I thought that the afternoon & midnight cars were supposed to have 2 manned cars. If these idiots are armed they can take out that officer, and that leaves us down to 2 or 3 cars patrolling one of the 2 largest dist in the city. Another family, loses a hard working sworn officer and the scum is still standing on the corner across the street from my house dealing drugs, playing loud music and swearing and keeping us, the working tax paying citizens of Chicago awake, and afraid that a stray bullet may come flying through our window.

Thank you Mr. Mayor, I appreciate that you care about us,the over taxed working class citizens of this once great city. If I wanted to live in Detroit, I would move there. Another thing, take your section 8 housing out of my Northwest side neighborhood. If I wanted to live with scum, I would have moved my family to a Chicago Housing Project years ago. At least hire a body guard for me, you could afford to give me one of yours.

Oh, and please wash your hair once in awhile, or is that your way of looking like a Detroit slum bum?

Look at the building that houses 5th District and Area 2 Detective Division. A big steel building with all glass block windows and no emergency exits anywhere but the first floor doors. Not to mention a totally unsecured parking lot with no fencing around it. A person could pull up a u-haul and bang! Everybody is trapped inside.

This city is a FUCKING joke. None of the surveillance cameras have worked in this building in years and 20% of the time the rear parking lot lights (where personnel park) are either out or the timing is so off that they go on when the sun rises.
-----------------------------------

Not to sound like an ass or to burst your bubble but who in the hell would ever want to bomb anything in the fifth district? I mean seriously now, a few suicide bombers roaming around that area would actually be a good thing. Should the station itself be a little more secure? Of course it should, they all should but the rest of the district, why bother?

The terrorist might have to bother the watch commander to borrow a few shotguns now and then, they promise to return them each time.

Maybe Daley and Hussein Obama can sign over seveal of out old police stations to the terrorist so they won't be bothered by nosy patrolman.

Let's give them some pool cars so they can get around town faster.

The police department has a plan in effect in case of a terrorist attack. If you are working, turn on the lights and siren and head away from the area as soon as possible. If off duty, get in your personal car with the family and run like hell. This directive was copied from the New Orleans answer to the Katrina disaster. With all the training the department has given us in case of a terrorist attack, this would be the best plan of action for us all. When I make 300,000 dollars a year, maybe I will have a different attitude. Or then again maybe not. You know this is what Shortshanks and J-fed will do. They will hire a private jet to get the hell out. They would be sending us into the center of the crap from the plane, better known as We are outta here 1.

Don't worry, any terrorist would never attack Chicago. There is no challenge for them. With all the weapons available to us and the security of all our government building. It would be harder for them to attack Sheriff Taylor and Mayberry. Barney Fife would stop them before an attack occurred.

During Jody's first barrage of personnel changes one of the changes he made was the commander of O'Hare. I barely knew the him when he said one of the most shocking things I've ever heard a commander say. "We do not have the manpower or firepower we need here.". Most bosses are too proud or naive to make a statement like that. What did he do about it? He asked if SWAT could have a "special employment" opportunity and work some days off there. GREAT! Finally someone with a brain! Then someone approving the idea makes a typical decision...."NO WALKING AROUND WITH THE RIFLES....IT SCARES PEOPLE." ARE F-ing KIDDING ME?!? So after the first couple of days what happens? Some other genius "doesn't like the green uniforms ar drop holsters....THEY ARE TOO INTIMIDATING.". So now you have SWAT officers patrolling the airport in regular uniform without their rifles so when the shit hits the fan (God forbid) the SWAT officer can run through the terminal to where the rifle is and come back. (and believe me from what the one guy working told me it would only take 5-10 minutes to get where it was and get back to where we were talking). The best part is that I know I got here with help and I admit it. BUT WOULD YOU BELIEVE THE "OLD TIMERS" ARE PISSED BECAUSE...and I quote "THE HAIR GEL POLICE ARE TAKING AWAY MY O.T.!!!"
Fat ass with a revolver is pissed. That is just a small glimpse into why this city is fucked.

I walked into HQ one morning and headed straight for the north stairwell. The alarm sounded as I opened the door and started up the stairs. As I reached the second landing a female(F/2)officer from HQ security yells up to me asking what I'm doing up there. I wait expecting this lazy clouted bitch to come after me but no dice. She does not come up. She instead yells up that the stairs are not to be used. I still wait and this piece of worthless meat in a CPD uniform failed to confront me.

I continued to the fifth floor and reported the lax security measures.

During TARA training they throw in the stuff that can be a refresher course at roll call training. ( Use of force, car chases, etc. ) They should concentrate more on terrorism training. I also couldn't believe how many guys were whining and crying about being there. Maybe a nuclear cloud over the city will make everybody realize how serious this is.

11/28/2008 10:29:00 AM

TARA is federally funded for three days. The other two days are 'since we gotcha here' classes.

This way, they can say the entire department was trained in 1) chases (just say no), 2) ethics, 3)sensitivity training, etc, etc. with little extra cost or effort.

Truth is the mayor would love to take away the side arms, you already have, let alone give you any real anti-terroists weapons.
He is more afraid of law suits, then terroists. The thought of the CPD with rifles, gives him nightmares.
The main streets are blocked off with flower pots. If the fire trucks and squad cars had to respond to a large incident they could not travel through traffic down the middle lane, as we used to do.
The citizens should know the mayor is only concerned with his agenda.
He thinks guns are the problem not the answer.

It is now the biggest joke I have ever seen. If you call 911, sometime you are hung up on before anyone answers the call. So, you call back, and they take your call and no one ever shows up. You call a half an hour later, because the stupid crap you called about is still happening, and they say they have no cars available to assign the job too. WHAT? No available cars? Are you kidding me? So, you call the district and the desk officer tells you there are only 3 or 4 cars working the district at this time, and it is a large district. Give me a break! So some crappy little drug dealer is selling drugs on the corner, probably armed standing right across the street from my house, music blaring, doing whatever the hell they want after 12 AM in the morning, and there are no cars available? This goes on for at least 3 hours and there is never a police car available.
-------
At least you got somebody to respond to you on the desk- I called and a female sergeant working the first watch on the desk refused to put the job in the computer because "it's not my job to dispatch cars." Then hung up on me. I called back and she was too big of a coward to come to the phone and let the PO who answered deal with it. I apologized to him and told him how sorry I was that he worked for such a coward.

Story, from that rag the Chicago Reader, on how clouted law firms do very well in lawsuits against the City and specifically the PD. Apparently, the City of Chicago pays out much more than any other city regarding lawsuits against the Police.

Could it be the Leprechaun King sees an opportunity for his friends to make money defending the city? Could it be King Daley of Bridgeport prefers to settle cases rather than fight because of political considerations? Could it be that his Elective Majesty and the Corporation Council don't know their asses from a hole in the ground?

Could be.

Figure out a way for some Daley cronies or family to make a few million bucks and we'll get a semi effective terrorist response.

I'm a citizen involved in CERT and from what I've learned - we're screwed should anything happen. We received a meager stash of gear to help should something really bad happen, but the first question people ask is..how will we be deployed? Well, obviously they'll put out a call for certain teams to meet at a rally point, right? How will they do this, you ask? They will put it on a ticker on the evening news, or call us on our cell phones, or send us an e-mail. No one bothered to tell the OEMC that should anything bad really happen, the cell phones won't work, we might not have power for a TV, and the internet will be out of the question.

In short? Prepare. Law enforcement, first responders - citizens..EVERYONE. Prepare. Have a gun or two, some ammunition, food, water and basic supplies to last a few days. We were told that should a bad event happen, priority will go to the worst area first and all at once. Therefore, if the sears tower explodes, no help will be in 016 when the looting starts until the situation downtown settles.

As for you cops - damn, you couldn't pay me enough to have your jobs. There was a time when I thought about being a cop, but now a days people just shit all over you guys, when you are the boots on the ground keeping the animals in this city from burning it down.

That's the Shitago way: Wait till something happens then react.How about "LET'S PISS OFF ALL THE WORKING POLICE IN THIS CITY TO THE POINT THAT THEY ARE RELUCTANT TO DO THE JOB THEY WHERE PROUD TO DO AT FIRST".The scenerio that was played out by SCC is very scary in that with the current crop of bosses we have now,they would be runing around like a chicken with it's head severed because of reasons posted on many prior occasions by being a "Merit" pick instead of someone who came up through the ranks with the neccessary experience that is attained with each new rank you develop knowledge,knowledge that can be very very valuable in times such as demostrated above. This is a prime example of what's going on Shitago as we speak/type: :"NOTHING" absolutely nothing,no response at all from the bosses,scary very scary.

If he sacred the hell out of you then.Here is something that will scare the hell out of you now: Have anyone beside myself noticed how these small "Mosque's" or prayer/action centers have been set up in the local neighberhoods???????How many men from the surrounding neighberhoods have you noticed in attendence????.How difficult would it be to approach one or more of these men and talk/convince them to do "collateral" damage by offering them a large sum of money??????think it's not possible.Remember Ghadify/El Rukin incident??? Ghadify would have paid millions for the El Rukins to hit a target here in the U.S.A. with "L.A.W" rockets.That did not succeed because it had "go-betweens/middle men,now with the current "DO NOT SNICTH TO THE POLICE" attitudes in the neighberhoods there is no need for "go-tweens".Contact would be face to face. Now that is not only scary but terrifying:
Find someone who is down on his luck or just got out of prison and is mad as hell at the system: "HERE TAKE THIS $100.000 AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS THROW THESE HAND GRENADES INTO THAT POLICE STATION". To all those who think i'm a nut job i'm not nor am i some paranoid white guy,i'm a black man and a realist who thinks this city is catering to the wrong people,instead they should take a long hard look at what they can do to secure our well being. Instead we are stuck with these no knowledge,inexperienced "Merit" picked bosses who have no clue as to what steps to take to prevent or at the very least counteract the above scenerio.My intentions where not ment to make you paranoid just think about what could happen due to the current ineffective leadership we have today.

Hey, I didn't know that SCC was an EOE.

Seems like you've got a 'time and a half midget' on the payroll.


(Isn't the term 'midget' still considered politically incorrect?)

Terrorists will not hit America while Obama is in office. This way Obama can cut military spending and intel. funding. The terrorists can rebuild. Plus if terroism slows the Obama admin. can force Isreal into more concessions. Watch for increased muslim immigration to U.S. under president Obama. Why would the terrorists fire a shot when they have their best ally ever in the White House. So all you non-thinkers with dreams of fighting terrorists on Michigan Ave. dont think it will happen. So you should take all the money you want to spend on 5.11's extra mags and shooting schools and donate to a political party that wants to fight terror and not help it.

11/29/2008 10:26:00 AM

obama has the backing of the middle easterns in this country, he was elected with their help (where did all his funding come from?!).

Obama will not only downsize the military budget, but will try to disarm America amending the second amendment.

If there is a threat, it will be domestic from within. The disgruntled States who are unhappy with the presidential candidate in this flailing economy may want to engage in civil uprising -- that is why obama met with McCain publicly so soon after the election, he knows the discontent.

The States that did NOT back him up with their votes will be the ones at risk for terrorist attacks, so in the aftermath of terrorist destruction, the obama 'messiah' will come to the rescue/aid.

The middle eastern men fasted for 30 days from sunrise to sunset before the election. This discipline, fanatacism is what we should take notice of. WHY, WHAT IS IN IT FOR THEM, do we have a clue? They celebrated THEIR victory, it was in the media news. Notice gas prices are under $2/gl now? mayor midget's smugness & arrogance is another indicator. No coincidence!

On the other hand, us Americans can drive through the nite, notice all the 24 hour drive thrus, for food, ice cream, anything you want? Obesity, drug addiction, alcoholism, pornography, abortion as an easy solution for unwanted sex, in debt for material wants, etc. AMERICANS giving in to their every desire, craving, whim becoming fattened sheep, without arms being led to their demise AND NO ONE IN A LEADERSHIP POSITION IS SOUNDING THE ALARM!


Just like Jfed, obama is about to start chaos in a country that is already in trouble...WHO IS GOING TO TAKE NOTICE,

Americans:
who are laid off?
in foreclosure?
declaring bankruptcy?
working 2 or more jobs?
on welfare?

The United States of America was founded on GOD, pilgrims seeking religious freedom...and we have taken HIM out of the game for political correctness...WE ARE SO FUCKED!

SCC,
I think there's a little too much info about our weaknesses listed here on a public website. If your blog is as well read as you say it is maybe it would be better to remove some of the critical info listed here. It's one thing to complain about it, it's another to give locations, descriptions of where to go in, etc. For our own safety SCC, I hope you remove some of the info posted here. Your website is very informative. Unfortunatley, I think this time it may be too informative to individuals we don't want informed at all.

As for you cops - damn, you couldn't pay me enough to have your jobs. There was a time when I thought about being a cop, but now a days people just shit all over you guys, when you are the boots on the ground keeping the animals in this city from burning it down. Stay safe, and know that some people here appreciate what you do; just don't forget us either.

Immigrant voting push strong
By Antonio Olivo | Chicago Tribune reporter
12:11 AM CDT, October 3, 2008

Volunteers register voters Wednesday at Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the Ramadan fasting period. (Tribune photo by Chuck Berman / October 1, 2008)

During the last three months, immigrant groups in Illinois have registered about 24,000 new voters, part of an aggressive last push to influence next month's elections.

Although the subject of Immigration has barely been broached by either presidential candidate, frustrations with the system are spurring registration drives in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and elsewhere that have seen nearly half a million new voters registered by immigrant groups in 12 states.

Ranger, listen here. Al-Queda will never give a fuck about the west side, trust me. Somehow I don't think blowing up the Whale will hold the same significance as the WTC. Besides if your weak ass can handle it, Im sure Al-Queda can make it.

Several comments have stated that the stations should be outfitted like currency exchanges to defend against attacks. There has to be at least 10-15 officers with OPEN CARRY semi-automatic pistols in there. It kind of blows your whole Conceal Carry argument out of the water when people with holstered guns don't feel safe enough.

In 021 aka "funnyone" because of the large # of alternative people there.There is some ex-con hype who walks freely around the entire station because he's made it his home and is allowed to do it by the many p.o.'s who pay him to wash their cars with his dirty bucket of water and shit stained rags.

No, it doesn't.

It just makes your head hurt to think that you might not know everything.


Recommended therapy:

Stop trying to think; you're like a child trying to figure out what those moans coming from your mom's room are all about.
