500 a Foregone Conclusion

Just how far over is the question now. From the comments:
  • Chalkie has made numerous guest appearances over the weekend from Rogers Park (another 16yo CPS student) to Logan Square to Austin to Englewood to Pullman. That's right people FIVE more. That brings are estimated total to about 497
We can verify at least three of the alleged five (via WBBM):
  • A 29-year-old man was fatally shot while sitting in a car on the West Side early Saturday.

    Jose Gonzalez was in the passenger seat of a vehicle parked in the 1800 block of North Pulaski Road about 1 a.m. when he was shot, police said.

  • A 21-YEAR-OLD MAN WAS KILLED early Saturday in a shooting in the South Side Englewood neighborhood.

    Milagro Rials was shot in the chest in the 700 block of West 59th Street, about 2 a.m., police said.

  • A 16-YEAR-OLD BOY WAS STABBED TO DEATH in the Rogers Park neighborhood Friday night outside a CTA Red Line station.

    The incident happened about 8:15 p.m., according to police News Affairs Officer John Henry. Police have no details as far as the circumstances

Holy Dum and Dummer Batman!!!

J-Fed is clearly under a lot of pressure to reduce an out-of-control homicide rate. The fact of the matter is...his ass is on the line starting next year. The honeymoon is over for J-clown and he better do the job that he is over paid to do or say goodbye to Chicago.

J-clown announced a new plan of action to include district gang teams. This idea is based on what the experts at city hall, M. Puppet Master and J-Byrd think should be done. The idea came from gang officers and supervisors. A typical white collar lie. All that bullshit about de-centralizing the dept went right out the window along with Officer Cozzi.

Somehow a sick game is being played on the patrol division and the predictable outcome will result in a overflow of trauma victims at suburban hospitals.

The concept of gang officers working in the areas or city wide is nothing new. The sixteenth district watches have all but forgotten the faces of their gang and tactical teams.

What continues in 2009 will be more failure and mismanagement of law enforcement resources to effectively reduce violent crime here in Chicago. The highest rates in years...all due to incompetent ex-feds, inexperienced city cronies, political whores, and the multiple meritorious bosses running this dept deeper into the ground.

Let the truth be told. A high violent crime rate is not related to the poor economy Mrs. 007.

The mobile strike force...is just a numbers game to report quotas for Monday morning meetings.

The new gang flying squad will also report their activity with our morning tea & crumpets. The squad will be lead by Merit Richard of Flair a.k.a. fondly “nature boy” along with his side kick Louisiana con artist Sgt. Cajun Spice. These poor district gang officers will now belong to them and the detective division...doing what? Quality? Not quantity? Somebody is about to get fucked over at the expense of J-Fed’s failure to resign.

Another consideration gang guys & dolls is this...they will never let you do detective work just cause your in their division. Why? If they change your job description toward investigative rather than enforcement...then the city will have to pay you D2A pay.

One last thought for the skull. Those old gang units of the 80's and early 90's had no impact on the homicide rate...which was doubled what it is today. These flying none teams won’t make a difference either...except for their absence in all those districts where they are badly needed to help out the working police with the over flow of routine work.

The more things change...the more they seem the same.

Getting rid of J-Fed would be a step in the right direction.

You know already what my New Year’s resolution is for 2009. Honk! Honk!

"500 A FOREGONE CONCLUSION"

ARE YOU KIDDIN' ME !!!

We probably hit 500 in JULY! CPD Detectives are just so adept at turning homicides into suicides, death investigations and accidental deaths, that J-Fed is lucky he's not looking at 600 homicides instead of 500!!!

IF YOU ASK ME I REALLY DONT THINK HE CARES, IF HE DID HE WOULD STEP DOWN GOING QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT. WE ARE 4 DAYS FROM X-MAS AND THE GREATEST GIFT THIS GOFF COULD GIVE AND THE CITY CHICAGO WOULD BE HIS LETTER OF INTENT TO RESIGN. JODY DO IT BEFORE ANOTHER KID IS TAKEN TO SLAB AND GUTTED LIKE LIKE FISH WHILE HIS MOM AND FAMILY PLANS HIS OR HER FUNERAL BETWEEN OPENING GIFTS. I KNOW YOU DID NOT COME TO DO THIS AND LET THIS HAPPEN, BUT IT IS. YOU WHERE AND ARE SURROUNDED BY SOME REAL MORONS MINUS ONE OR TWO GOOD GUYS. JODY PLEASE QUIT.

I really believe Jody is looking for a way, to back out of this whole mistake,gracefully.
I think he now realizes it is totally over his head.
He got rid of all the people, who might have made him look good.
"His honor", the total out of control dictator,is not supportive.
Even "his honor" probably realizes it was a mistake. Of course he would never admit it.
Yes, the money was nice, but I think he still wants to work.
His failure here, will be a black mark on his record.
One thing for sure, he will be out of here the first chance he gets to do so.

Daley's fault on a lot of these killings. If we had the officers we're short 2,500 or so and a contract and our hands untied so we can do police work, I'll bet a high number of these murders could have been prevented. But filling his own pockets with cashola and recklessly splurging for a not gaurenteed olympics is more important.

Teen leaving party gunned down in Englewood
December 21, 2008 at 2:41 PM

Police today are investigating a shooting Saturday night in Englewood that left a 17-year-old boy dead and two other people injured.
Andre Stephens Jr. was walking with several others in the 5700 block of South Morgan Street at about 11:15 p.m. when an unknown gunman approached and opened fire on the group with a handgun, said Chicago Police Officer John Mirabelli.

One person was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound, while Stephens and another person were taken to Stroger Hospital. Stephens, of the 6600 block of South Aberdeen Street, was pronounced dead at 5:36 a.m. No conditions were available for the other two victims.

By the Tribune's estimate, the shooting was the city's 496th homicide of the year.


Stephens' aunt Earlean Bonner, 34, learned from some of those with her nephew that he was leaving a party with about 15 other people when the shooting occurred.

"Whoever it was, [he] just came around the corner and shot into the crowd and he (Stephens) was in the crowd," she said.

Stephens, a senior at John Hope Preparatory High School, was hit in the buttocks and leg. At the hospital, he underwent surgery before dying, his aunt said.

"He had a beautiful spirit; so bright and smart," Bonner said. "This is our first time ever losing someone like this."

(WRONG TRIBUNE IT'S 499 TAKE IT FROM SOMEONE DEFINETELY IN THE KNOW!) Just because the media and public doesn't hear about it, doesn't mean it didn't happen.
Remember this count doesn't include over a hundred more intentional misclassifications of homicides to suicides or "death investigations".

Why the MSF was created? Because the Sons Of Supervisors needed a place to go! Did you guys see the last transfer order? Half of the Mobile Strike Force got transfered....

Whats the point - they have no effect on the murder rate. They were too busy watching footbal games instead of working.... The upper management actually did a survey and it proved that neither the old Gang Crimes unit, The Flying squad, S.O.S.or TRU made any arrest during the Sunday Footbal Game times or during Monday Night Football.

Listen, out of the near 500 people who have been murdered in this city, how many were going to be the next one to come up with the cure for cancer? Ok, so I’m embellishing for the sake of humor, one better: How many were going to be a normal, moral, law abiding, productive member of society? 5? 6? 10 at the extreme outside. Sad, but true that less that 2% of the homicide victims were actually decent people. I do feel sorry for them, the extreme minority of our victims who are actually decent people. And for them, I will have no problem doing “Police work” for. The rest of the gang-banging, dope slinging, waist of sperm, oxygen thieves…. Well, let’s just say what goes around, comes around!

As for “Fuck-head Weis”, I’m in total agreement. I think he is clueless, and inept as a boss, or as any member of the Chicago Police department. He might be better suited for cleaning up the locker room/lock up, but that’s it. With Judas Fed attitude and ego, do you really think he is going to resign because some gang-banger caught one in the grape?

In the past the homicide rate was almost double what it is today and the manpower was was 3-4 thousand more officers than today.
So whats the answer?
You could blame units or individual officers, but the years of 700 homicides was back in the day of "working police and coppers bosses" so if the police back then were the best, and the bosses were also, why were the homicide rates so high? Who knows?
We need to stop ripping each other, the brain trusts have no idea what to do,never did. They get paid a good salary and dont want to lose it buy doing something stupid, like going against the machine.
It wasnt the wild west back in the day, police werent shooting people and leaving them on the curb, beat downs to the point of hospitalization was not common place.
The difference I think is that the police back then had more respect for authority, more respect for mankind and a hell of a lot more respect for each other.
This job has always been what we make of it, we have always been our worst enemy.
Get to work on time, in proper uniform. Answer your calls, back each other up, stay off your damn cell phone, talk to your partner, keep your head on a swival and a smile on your face. Show respect to your fellow man, know when to put someone in their place.
We have the most honorable job on this earth.
Act with honor, be professional.
Go home every day knowing you did the best job you could have.
Stop belittling each other, it doesnt help. Leave all the other bullshit to the stuffed shirts.
