Hyde Park Killing

Hyde Park...Hyde Park...

Something important is going on there. We always see a million cops there with eight snowplows and all sorts of guys in suits.
  • A man was found shot to death on a Hyde Park street late Tuesday, police said.

    Officers found a man later identified as Cydrell Bragg, 28, of an undetermined Chicago address, lying on the street with a gunshot wound to the head about 11:55 p.m. in the 1600 block of East 53rd Street, a police spokesman said. The area where he was found is near a Metra viaduct and station.

    The man was dead on the scene, said Officer David Banks. Officials from the Cook County Medical Examiner's office were on the scene a little after 1 a.m.

Sound like a dangerous place. Well, that's all the City lately. Are we at 500 yet?

If we are not at 500, we are getting very close... Could we do a guessing game SCC? Kinda like The Price Is Right... Guess the year end homicide numbers WITHOUT going over and you win!

My Guess 516.

Where exactly is it safe to go in Chicago? When I take a trip out there, I don't want to get lost in some shady part of town.

I'll need help from y'all.

So what's the deal with Hyde Park? Is it a really bad area?

Blago's other attorney is none other the the loud mouth himself Sam Adam Jr.

This is the same guys who was TRYING to defend shit back drug dealers no less than two years ago. The louder he talked the smarter he thought he was. He never seemed to talk to the officers/SA/Judge only trying to grand stand for those sitting in the gallery. Those idiots then thought he was great cause they hired him.

Best thing about him is that after the probably cause date all he would do is then get them to take a plea at 26th.

He was also the great attorney for out latest Alderwomen to PLE GUILTY.

Sorry off topic but have to comment on the continuing micromanaging crisis that has plagued our department:

Word is at headquarters that Aunt B is inspecting cubicles and desks on all floors for neatness and cleanliness. If your cubicle is not up to snuff, she will tell your supervisor to inform you to get it spic and span. WTF? Don’t you have anything else better to do? The murder rate is quickly approaching 500 and you are looking for messy desks? If you want something to do, sit down and figure out how to improve morale, not this nitpicky bullshit.

Drew Peterson is engaged. He managed to find a completely naieve, 23 year old girl to actually marry him. He is great at finding very young girls that have a troubled past with no family support. Imagine the pressure this young victim will have when the press locates her. She should have a GPS chip implanted in her arm to help the state police find her after the (accident). The new father of the bride must be very proud. Take out life insurance, dad.

Hope many are noticing the mayor leasing various city assets, selling of assets and borrowing of money from funds to get the olympics just to bolster his legacey. Even though the mayor knows that the olpmpics put cities into financial disstress he still wants his legacy. He is cutting everything and crying broke, but in the end he's the king of the "Chicago way pay to play" and he will get the olympics at any cost. God help us!

Weis made a promise today to hundreds of protestors (for stricter gun laws) in front of all the media for that NEXT YEAR we won't be the Murder Capitol of the nation.

I hope they don't really believe him! With 51 Chicago Public School students murdered this year and the total Murder count at about 492(about a 20% increase over last year),unemployment at a decade and a half high, the economy in the shitter, no money for hiring a force depleted by over 2000+ Officers,no money to promote supervisors - I can't see him promising something so far fetched as that!

Open mouth insert foot!
If he is still here next year, that statement will be the end of him! Remember this day!

God Bless all of us and our families and Happy Holidays!

NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE 12/17/08

The Core Group of the Negotiations Team met with the City today and discussed the following issues:

A Code 49 issue that has arisen as a result of opposite positions within the Negotiating Teams over its implementation

A bargaining demand regarding the canine Officer Selection Process

The Unfair Labor Practice filed by the Lodge over DNA testing

The City's Light Duty Proposal

Our free Health Care at age 55 proposal

A City proposal regarding Military Leave

The first three issues are not proposals put forward by either the City of the Lodge but are issues that have arisen out of either the negotiations process or disagreements the Lodge has over issues that need to be addressed with a level of immediacy by representatives of the Corporation Counsel’s Office. Unfortunately these issues take time away from addressing contract proposals and are kept to a minimum in this forum.

Holy Make Believe Batman!!!

SCC what is this B-U-L-L S-H-I-T explanation being reported that JACK-ASS, Jr a few years ago ratted out Blago to a US Attorney? Interesting how nothing happen.

The article suggests asshat Jr was an informant for the feebs and didn't do anything wrong.

Let's just for the sake of argument test that theory out if it is true.

Why wasn't Jr wearing a wire and why didn't he make a personal visit to discuss in greater detail the proposition as opposed to using go-betweens to do the dirty work?

Why didn't the go-betweens wear a wire either?

Why doesn't the indictment indicate that Candidate #5 was a cooperating individual rather then just a dirty bastard trying to get a free ride on a used senate seat.

Why does Jr need a special attorney. If Jr is working for the feebs the US Attorney will back him up right, as a prosecuting witness? He ain't going to need a lawyer.

Why does Jr look so fucking disoriented when talking to the media. Jr fails to make direct eye contact? Why does he talk so slow and carefully chooses his words?

Why isn't Fritz stepping forward and bailing this guy out?

Who is this US Attorney who Jr claims he talked to and what is his political connections? What was the outcome of their discussion?

Seems like a bullshit defensive move to make it appear that Jr was conducting his own corruption probe with or without the USDOJ.

Folks I can't wait to see this muther fucker go down.

I work in 021st district,and was there last night,it's a little funny,our future president lives in the D.O.C.!Hyde park consist of mostly Liberals,clueless U of C students,and lots and lots of shitheads surround hyde park..there has always been alot of robberies and burglaries around there,just two months ago we had a foot chase 1/4 block from Obama's house with the guy slinging rock cocaine.So,if you dont really need to be there during the night,my advise is not be there...the day time is alittle safer...unless you stay around Obama's house where there are tons of Feds and coppers.Stay NORTH!..Good luck and welcome to Chicago when you get here...be safe.

The whole numbers game played by the bosses is a joke! It's funny how anything to do with revenue numbers has to stay the same or go up month after month(parkers, movers, cerfews etc.) but the homie cides have to go down every year. Isn't the point of writing parkers, movers, cerfews etc. supposed to be a deterent to further violations of these types? Isn't that why we enforce them? It's to bring the number of violations down to make the public safe, right? The purpose of law enforcement is to deter by punishment and example, so if it works, the numbers should go down. I know, that's not acceptable for the bosses, they need the same number every year untill 2080! During a recent Christmas party a boss was heard complaining about how the cerfew numbers were down from last year. Well boss, maybe enforcement works and mommy is keeping the little ones in more often. Or do you want us to make more shit up for you? Sorry boss thoes days are over.

So, after several years the homie cide rate should be under 50? If not I guess we're not doing our job, right?

According to the latest article on your stats, your MSF had only seized 29 guns in the 45 days you had been in existence. If Jody thinks he's going to turn the stats around with you "private army" guys, he's even dumber than he looks. But I'm sure the MSF stats would improve if he were to put Ray Hamilton out there as a platoon leader. Ray knows how to get things done...just ask him.

I'll pass on the liberals. I work with enough of them and it takes a lot for me not to tell them to stuff their views up their ass. I need my job so I keep my mouth shut.

I'll pass on visiting Obama's house too. I didn't vote for him and have no interest in seeing his house. It's bad enough we have to put up with him for at least four years.

Right now, I don't plan on coming out there until it's warmer, but thanks for all your help.

Is Hyde Park dangerous and unsafe? Very unsafe. In fact most of this city is that way. Nothing here to see.


Maybe I watch too many movies, beacause I always think Chicago looks so beautiful - at least until you get into the city. I avoid everything about Philly and generally hate big cities. I went to Las Vegas and hated it.

I'm generally a bigger fan of the southern states - probably because I've gone almost every year since I was a kid.

Still, I'd like to visit Chicago. I trust you all will keep me safe. ;)

LOL, you are funny. I posted a pic of myself twice on my blog but took it down. I highly doubt I'll put it up again. There are a few here at SCC that know what I look like. Nothing special. Seriously.


It's never safe.

Anywhere.


Very true...


I would do it in the daytime and then spend the afternoon people watching at Jimmy's Woodlawn Tap.

Not sure where that is, but I love people watching - sort of like being a voyeur. ;)


Hey katey kakes... shoew me a real pic and i'll tell you where to hangout.

Honest to God, you're not missing out on much. If you really want one, just email.


This city has a lot to offer and let me be the first to offer my bodyguard/tour guide services for free.

You are a gem. Thank you. ;)


My apologies if I missed anyone. Thanks so much for all your advice and filling me in about Chicago.

You all be safe out there.

The Dearborns Homes are the safest place to be in 021. They have 2 sgts and about 10 pos over there on second watch. That's like one officer for each bad guy that still lives there - that place is like a ghost town.

"I feel at home in 011 and 015.

That speaks volumes, it's called the Stockholm syndrome. Talk to a Therapist.

No offense but Hyde Park yuppies are dumb as hell. They like to venture west and get into all sorts of trouble.

It was announced at rollcall at MSF that TRU will handle all things Southside and MSF will handle all Westside. This means you will NEVER see us in the Southside! Hahaha! Personally, I fucking hate the Southside. I feel at home in 011 and 015.

I got news for you, cupcake. You guys don't appear to be handling too much wherever you are deployed.
According to the latest article on your stats, your MSF had only seized 29 guns in the 45 days you had been in existence. If Jody thinks he's going to turn the stats around with you "private army" guys, he's even dumber than he looks. But I'm sure the MSF stats would improve if he were to put Ray Hamilton out there as a platoon leader. Ray knows how to get things done...just ask him.

So what's the deal with Hyde Park? Is it a really bad area?

Ms Kateykakes,
Think of it like the movie, "I Am Legend"---get a long gun and a big dog/ drive fast during the day and barricade yourself in at night.

If you really do visit our "fair" city, there are better neighborhoods to check out....

Not long after I watched that movie, I had nightmares, and I haven't had them in years. I haven't watched the movie again since.

BTW, I do have a big dog (Boxer), but she's just a big baby. She wouldn't be any help at all.

I trust that you all will steer me in the right direction before I get there with what sites to check out.
