Cancel Tribune Subscriptions

Remember when the Trib used to advocate Midwestern Republican values? Now they publish crap like this:
  • As he walked out of prison a free man earlier this month, Jessie Rankins barely greeted his wife, exchanging only a few words without kissing or hugging her. He hadn't seen her in 2 1/2 years. It was their fourth wedding anniversary.

    "I'll feel better when I see my dog," he said a short time later.

    Rankins isn't a household name, but his crime was among the most notorious murders in Chicago history.

    Just a scrawny boy in 1994, he and a friend abducted 5-year-old Eric Morse, dangled the screaming boy out a 14th-floor window at a public housing high-rise and dropped him to his death. Eric had refused to steal candy for them, prosecutors said.
The entire article is some bullshit about this piece of garbage and his partner who dropped a child about 140 feet to his death. Think about that. One hundred forty feet straight down into solid earth. That's about 3 seconds of free fall reaching a speed somewhere near 40 meters a second at impact. What wasn't splintered in Eric Morse was pulverized. Some of us here worked in a bunch of those buildings and their twins before they tore them all down. Talk about godforsaken shit holes.

And the story seems to be that we should feel sorry for these two assholes because they were "raised" in prison, can't read, can't hold jobs, and have been in and out of prison in the intervening twenty years due to their choices.

Boo-fucking-hoo.

It would have been a fucking mercy if these two were drowned at birth. And it'd be another fucking blessing if they were both crushed to death by steamrollers.

What about the sob story of the offender who killed 4 police officers the other day.

The Tribune claimed the man was afraid of returning to jail and that is why he shot those officers.

A man who couldn't find a job but also couldn't find his parole officer's office either because he kept missing the monthly appointments and kept a loaded handgun on his person even though he was a 4 time convicted felon.

Yes, the Tribune was trying to make it sound like this guy had no other choice than to kill these 4 police officers.

CANCEL IT NOW! I am also tired of seeing Obama on the cover everyday as the Sun-Times and Tribune attempt to get saint hood for him.

I had a call of an armed robbery on Larrabee near Oak. We chase the offender into one of the reds, and like a cockaroach, he disappears into the shadows. As we are ready to leave the building the zone tells us that someone is trying to break into an apartment on the 4th floor. As we get there we find that Joey Shithead kicked in the door and was hiding in the bedroom of the apartment. We catch Joey Shithead, but the thing I remember most about this job is that the apartment was immaculate. It was clean and simply, but nicely decorated. The three kids were eating breakfast and I could see mom was a hardworker. Her children were clean and dressed well for school. She was scared out of her mind when he kicked in the door, but she knew this was the Greens and, sadly, this is what happens there. She was so very thankful to us for coming and grabbing this guy. The kids were so polite to us that for a moment I thought I was somewhere else. Grandma told me that her daughter is strict, but loving with the kids and that kids never miss school. As I was leaving, one of the kids said, "Officer, when I get out of school, I want to be a policeman."

Based on what I saw, I found the "exception to the rule" that for whatever reason this family was stuck in the Greens, but determined not to let that define them.

This is the type of story that the Tribune should have covered at one time.

I came from the inner city, but I did not let that define me.

Why the fuck the Tribune will make excuses for such a fuck-up like this I will never know. These assholes have choices. They choose not to learn to read, or do math and sell dope. They choose to drop five year olds off the breezeways in the projects and kill other kids. Jessie Rankins had a choice and it is a choice he made and he made alone. For the Tribune to write such bullshit only enables the other Jessie Rankins in society.

SCC, you are right, boo-fucking-hoo-hoo. And the activists, who live in their ivory towers, don't have a single clue that people like Rankins choose to keep on doing what they are doing because it is the easiest way for them. Why learn when the State of Illinois can take care of them?

This sounds promising.

What's it gonna be? Multiple shooting stemming from Rankins and a brother-in-law moving a refrigerator and beginning to argue over who gets the downstairs end?

Wife's brains splattered with a table leg for tripping over that lousy dog when Rankins has a gutful of booze?

Baby held down on the electric stove because it dared to make a sound when Rankins -- God-Almighty Ancient And Original Unemployed Emperor Of This Week's Girlfriend's House -- was watching TV?

The Tribune gave us the award. And we've been anti-Mainstream Media since day one. It doesn't diminish the recognition they gave and doesn't diminish the fact that they're still the big newspaper in the Midwest. It is what it is.

Same answer to the other poster who decided to call us names and therefore didn't get published. We can agree to disagree with the direction the Tribune is going and still link to their stories and articles. But we have no problem advising people to get if free online.

I grew up with the Trib, as my mom and grandparents were both subscribers. As soon as I moved out on my own, I subscribed. Over the last years I noticed a shift toward an anti-police, pro-illigal alien and very liberal agenda. I cancelled my subscription the day after they endorsed Obama.
Shortly after that, I read where the Trib said that they have kept to their economic conservatism, but modified to be socially liberal.
I am glad I have gotten rid of the liberal rag, but I hate having no paper to read.

The Tribune has been a long time advocate of this kind of crap.

Remember when they were nominated for their series on prosecutural misconduct?

Falisifed numbers, skewed facts and complete lies.

The first and only time (to my knowledge) that a Pultizer prize nominee was rescinded.

Maurice Possley had a lot to do with it as did David Posse, who taught at Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism.

David had a habit of instructing his pretty 847 area code female students to write letters to offenders, including pictures, and at times WORN PANTIES, and ask for "cooperation" in the testimony that they were so nice enough to send to the inmates.

Amazingly, these bad boys went along!

Go ask some of the ol' school A.S.A.s about this.

One ASA tried her best at exposing it...

But surprisingly, no paper wanted to write what was going on.

Nowadays we have the internet.

Maurice Possley should be avoided AT ALL COSTS.

I locked up the animal many, many times over the years. Also, I am no bleeding heart liberal, but I have news for you, ladies and gentlemen, the system did not just fail these 2 pieces of shit, it failed all of us, each and everyone of us.

Yes, many of us would like to just kill them, chop their heads off or put a live hand grenade down their throats, then walk and get far enough away to still hear the explosion, but not get their blood and guts on our clothes, however, unless they are killed in the commission of another crime or killed while fighting over a cheeseburger, society does not allow us to kill them as a preventive measure so they most likely will be around for a good long while and all that time they will be prone to violence, which is all they know.

Without intensive counseling and job training while these 2 were in the custody of the state, they are doomed to repeat their past, and the sad part is that their future will most likely include a law-abiding citizen(s) as the victim(s)of a heinous act at their hands. They are doomed to robbing, raping, sodomizing, torturing, and killing without remorse, and the most likely victim(s) will be a law abiding loved one(s) of somebody in our society.

Many of you will say, fuck them, kill them, if he bothers me or mine I'll shoot the fucker(s)in the head and nuts, I'll judge them with 6, instead of them getting judged by 12, and on and on, but it is all reactive conduct, not proactive conduct. Your life and the lives of your loved ones that fall victim to these 2, will be unalterably changed forever, in some terrible way or another.

I want to say fuck these 2 mother fuckers, but sadly, the best thing we can do for ourselves, because these two mother fuckers are probably not leaving our earth very soon, is to try and put them on a better road while we can, not because we love them or like them or need them in society or being true to some bleeding-heart agenda, but because we may, and it is only may, keep them from visiting some heinous act on you, me or our loved ones. Sad to say, but nonetheless, true. The system failed us all.

I don't know what it's like to grow up as the POS in the article, but I do know that my upbringing has not defined me or the choices I made/make in life. I don't believe there's ever been a time where I've said, "I made decision X, because of incident Y." They killed a little boy. For no reason. And then while in prison, raped another boy. There is a word for that behavior:
Evil.

This animal will end up back in the can, no doubt about it. He has no logic or reasoning of any kind, and puts no value on human life.

"The system failed us all.

3/25/2009 12:23:00 PM"



The system is us, as in every single citizen.


People who are victims of criminal acts, ie., those who are the wrong people, in the wrong place and at the wrong time, cannot be considered 'innocent' if they have done little to nothing to be as prepared as possible to not be victimized, like not being in that wrong place at that wrong time, and/or not preparing themselves for that time when that wrong place is brought to their doorstep.

People, over the past few generations, have chosen, (or have allowed to be chosen for them), a mentality that is, to put it mildly, retarded.

Exceptionally retarded.

Astronomically retarded.

Unfucking believably retarded.


And the results of this chosen retardation of their individual perspectives has been as predictable as the motions of the heavens.


How can presumably intelligent human beings possibly believe that behaving as sheep and rabbits will, by any stretch of their imaginations, result in their not being treated as sheep and rabbits, by the ever increasing number of two-legged predators, who, assuredly, appreciate, on the part of their prey, this retarded perspective?


I mean, c'mon, how hard is it to recognize the scent of bullshit?

How hard is it to be conscious of the sensation of a hand creeping toward one's pocketbook, or a finger working it's way up one's anus?

Just how often an ass-fucking are the citizen-rabbits and citizen-sheep willing to tolerate, before they consciously choose to no longer remain sheep and rabbits?


It's nice to think that the predators are unlikely to venture into one's territory, but, only a retard would believe that unlikely is the same as impossible.

The essential problem has it's roots in our allowing our children to be taught, by us and by the system called by the oxymoron of 'education', that it is ever truly safe.

It's never safe, not in the absolute sense of the word.

Ever.

And developing a mentality constantly aware of this fact is in no way detrimental to our children or to the adults we help them to become. Quite the contrary, it is essential to their, and our, survival as a species.


There's a reason why this place, this world, this corporeal existence, is not considered to be Heaven.

Tipsville to newspapers: don't ever endorse political candidates. You no longer are objective and impartial purveyors of news. You did not lose me to the internet.

There is a law or rule somewhere that says you cannot drop acid and post to SCC. In future, please comply.

Regardless, you can be as prepared as can be, and the animnal can touch your life at the oddest or most innocent moment of your life, at a moment when you would never figure it could happen or never think it could happen, but happen it can. At your home, at your church, at your doctor's office, at your bank, anywhere, because the animnal is mobile, and travels to inflict misery on the innocent. If you don't believe it, you are a fool and a victim waiting to happen.

I hate scumbags as much as the next guy but this wasn't a news article it was a feature; an opinion piece. It is the opinion of the person - not the newspaper.

I don't get how someone(tribune) would think we should have any empathy for two pieces of pure evil. How about writing an article about the Morse family. That I could understand

A couple years back some off duty ccsp got into it with some shitbag and his girl near Robbins, the shitbag threw a paintcan at them and fled into the projects. The shitbag had one of his buddies shoot at the ccsp, they returned fire. John Kass wrote several articles about how this poor inacent couple was harrased and shot at by drunken off-duty coppers. At the civil tral a women said she saw the buddy shoot at the coppers and the coppers returned fire. John Kass didnt write one article about this, John kass is no good, fuck him and the trib.3/25/2009 02:04:00 PM******These articles John wrote had to do with Sheahan's patronage, you tool. These CCSP, Lannigan, Remus and others, are political hacks who were so drunk they accidentially drove into the area!They fired their guns when in fact they were too drunk to walk!They should have faced prison time!Had it not been for your relation to Terry Lannigan, Mike Sheahan's old partner, you would have been prosecuted. And oh, this was all after a fundraiser and a drinking festival at Cork and Kerry's. Now, go pretend you're the police somewhere else. Political hacks!

In "The Bible", it's up to society to read where God says send the murderers to me. All the intensive counseling and job training isn't going to change Rankins one bit. Look at the commuted death row people that Homer pardoned. How many of them wound up back in crime, and in some/most cases wound up beating their wives and kids.?
