Another Spate of Shootings

  • An armed robbery and a drive-by within minutes of each other Monday night on the South Side claimed five shooting victims including one man who later died.

    At least four men were injured during a drive-by shooting in the 6300 block of South Ellis Avenue about 10:30 p.m., according to police News Affairs Officer John Henry, who said two of the victims were 20 and 39-years-old.

  • Only about five minutes after that attack, a man in his 50s was entering the building where he lives in the 6800 block of South Crandon Avenue when four or five juvenile males between the ages of about 15 and 17 approached him wearing dark hoodies, dark pants and masks, Grand Crossing District police said.
So the aggravated battery numbers continue to climb while hospital care keeps the homicide rate down. The weatherman is predicting 80's by Friday and Saturday.

There must be an error in the report. Chitroit has a curfew so no 15 or 16 year old could have been involved.

We need new laws to stop the violence. Only if there were more laws. Oh the humanity!!!

A person shot during the course of a robbery is not even listed at an aggravated battery. It's listed as a robbery. The number of people shot is much higher than the number listed on agg bats.

Interesting news story regarding off-duty comments in bar from LEO. Should be discussed. I believe that his department is responding to pressure to discipline the officer.

Gabriel Falcon
AC360° Writer

The question is now being asked after an Erie, Pennsylvania police officer was captured on a cell-phone camera joking and laughing about comments he made about a murder victim.

James Cousins II probably wasn’t aware his remarks were being recorded on April 6th, but they were. And the video clip was quickly uploaded to YouTube, where it’s been viewed more than 12,000 times.

On the tape, Cousins, wearing a sweatshirt and baseball cap, teeters back and forth at the front of a bar counter. He appears intoxicated, and the police chief would later say Cousins was apparently drunk.

In gruesome detail that gathers laughs from several other bar patrons, Cousins describes how, as a patrol officer, he responded to a homicide on March 28th. He explains how he arrived at the scene to find a man shot in the head and says the dead man’s leg was twitching....

This simply cant be possible. What about our new Iraq tactics. We were told that the reduction in crime wasnt due to the cold but to these new Iraq tactics and the centralization of Gangs and the Weiss Mobile Pet Force.

I guess they are trying the Afghanistan tactics now. good news is that with centralization alot of the good restraunts citywide are seeing more coppers from these units congregating more.

What???

New York v. Belton, 453 U.S. 454 (1981)-Can a police officer search a vehicle incident to arrest if the arrestee is detained in handcuffs in the back of the officer's vehicle? Courts around the country have wrestled with this question with opposite rulings. Many courts have ruled that the search is not justified because the arrestee could not possibly escape handcuffs, then the police unit cage, and get to the arrestee's vehicle to obtain a weapon or destroy evidence. Other courts have ruled that this type of search is justifiable as a search incident to arrest. The US Supreme Court wanted a straightforward rule to settle this issue. The court ruled that a police officer can search the vehicle incident to arrest as long as:
There was a lawful custodial arrest.

The search was contemporaneous to the arrest.

The arrestee was an occupant of the vehicle just before the arrest.

The search is limited to the passenger area of the vehicle.

*************

Ghetto man and his friends hang out there for feeding time, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Take a look up and down 111th St very early in the morning, at about 1100 hrs, and again about 1700 hrs. It's the feeding schedule. They get off the CTA at 111 and Central Park, and walk over.
No truth to the rumor that it will be a full-time homeless shelter, although with the way he hangs around the building, it might as well be one.

I think there was a stink about the ghoul pool in one of the Phiily papers and the liberals cried about it. Boo frigging hoo. Get over it.

Car washes jammed 20 deep Wednesday afternoon. Everyone same idea same time.

"Pedestrian" activity noticeably 'way up Wednesday night 11 PM along Grand Avenue from E'wood Park, across Harlem into 025, east to at least Austin. Apparent fresh drug set vic. 6149 W. Grand, out there with hoodie/cell to do curbside service. Repeated groups of 2-3 young males along Grand, drunks yelling for attention, much male/female group activity coming on foot into/out of side streets along here. Babies and toddlers come with at any and all hours, doesn't matter.

...and that's with temps of 42
degrees or so. People already wearing shorts and T-shirts like that was warm, standard maladaptation this time of year, but as long as cell phone is working they're fine.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 65. Southeast wind between 10 and 15 mph.

Thursday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 57. South wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 80. Breezy, with a southwest wind between 20 and 25 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph.

Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 65. Breezy, with a southwest wind around 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.

Saturday: Mostly sunny and breezy, with a high near 80.

Saturday Night: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 57.

Sunday: A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 74.

Sunday Night: A chance of showers and thunderstorms. Cloudy, with a low around 55.

Let's see how much fencing, how many light poles and stop signs, how many storefronts along Grand the illegals can wreck this weekend once borracho and driving up the sidewalk. How the hell can a sewing-machine-motored piece of two-door tin crap with a top speed of 15 MPH come off the stop line with such a jerk when the light goes green? Obligatory one headlight dangling from its eye-stalk...
