Casualties Count?

Does anyone know if we'll every see the true numbers? The media is still sitting on a few:
  • At least one man was reported stabbed during an altercation at the Fiesta Puertorriquenas festival in Humboldt Park Saturday night, officials said.

    A 25-year-old man was stabbed in the park near West Evergreen and North California Avenues about 8:30 p.m., said Fire Department spokesman Quention Curtis.

  • A man believed to be in his 20s was shot and critically wounded this evening at an intersection in the Humboldt Park area.

    About 7 p.m. the victim was in his vehicle in the 1600 block of North Western Avenue when he was shot by an occupant in what was described as a black Honda, Chicago police said.

There may have been more incidents prior to publishing and the roving gang fights seem standard. Any coppers working it have some first hand stories?

First hand stories??? WE ARE OUTNUMBERED BAD!!! Not enough police in the surrounding streets of Humboldt Park. It's complete anarchy. Don't make arrests unless you HAVE to! Shorthanding those out there for a dumb arrest is something we are not doing in case the shit really hits the fan.

CMDR Martinez and Pabon from 014 are completly cluesless as to what they are doing!!!

We took the under (7-) for the homicide count this weekend.

We thought the seven and a hook was a trap for those "Over" players. The over was looking real good with temperatures in the high eighties and high humidity. But it may be possible that some victims are not being reported; it looks like the fix is in!

We're taking the under for the rest of the season!

Never thought we'd be handicapping homicide numbers as though it were football season.

Stop in the emergency rooms near the fest. That should tell the true story, or at least closer to it.

Only three? Usually the fest is good for 4 or five stabbings and at least 2 shootings.

Ya...one guy stabbed (tonight another one Friday) two people (if you want to call gang bangers people..Latin King) shot. Numerous batteries. Saw couple different people walking around at different locations bleeding from head...they didnt want any help sooooo... Oh, also city didnt want to pay TMA's overtime so had TACT teams directing traffic at end of night. All and all it sucked ass..but could have been worse I guess.

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as Puerto Rican "leaders"...
Only a bunch of cry-baby mommies who swear up & down their kids ain't gang-bangers when they become victims. I've cleaned up many an apartment in my building when those cokroach infested bastards move out.
They are NOT Puerto Rican, as they pretend to be.
I know, because I am a Puerto Rican.
Educated, Working, Providing for my two beautiful children, the way my Puerto Rican Father provided for myself and my siblings...He was a copper's cop. a real boss. I remember other officers meeting me and telling me what a privilege it was to work for him. He's since retired, and feeling sorry for the PO's still out there, trying to do the job with only memories of years past, when there were REAL bosses, not a bunch of POLITICAL HACKS sucking ass and licking choad.
Here in the 013, EAST of California, and South of Division, the natives were more tame than in years past, thanks in large part to the men, (DADS), ensuring the visiting savages understood OUR groundrules. CPD hardly needed to be here...and I am sure they appreciated the break. Thanks guys and gals for a job well done.

On one of the threats” Lucio has some explaining to do” someone mentioned that not alcohol sells inside the park, well let me say this, you did not have to have license to sell alcohol inside the P.R fest, because it was plenty consumption outside, as well inside of the park. Of course the BANGERS acting like real animals that they are. OPSS! The Shitheads act like that with or without it. Majority of these angels were smoking weed, drinking, flashing gang signs, fighting each other, throwing empty bottles at some of the cars, and I even witnessed flipping off the police in some instances, which is not surprising. At that point they knew that, they were not going to get arrested, so they went all out…….In my years living here, I never eyewitness anything like it… it was out of control! Way to go Lucio, you should be ashamed of your self! The Burger Queen could off done a better job than you! Question, are you so afraid of the politicians who run this fucking circus (P.R parade) that, once you arrest their BANGERS and their uncivilized people, that they my throw you out of your cushion job, Perhaps it may be something else that we don’t know about it? Stop being a ( Kitty) and man up to this fucking seven days CAOS! Or throw the towel and move on, so we can bring a real leader who’s not afraid of locking all the SHITHEADS and their mom if necessary...Happy Fathers Day!

I think you missed the point. The Irish parade got out of control with the drinking and brawling and the sponsors cancelled it out of respect for the community.

I doubt the 'sponsors' of the Puerto Rican fest will do the same. Too much cash for them and not enough respect for the neighbors.

I live just west of the 014 and in the last few years of PR Fest, this past year was much better. Limited roaming groups of drunkards tossing beer bottles into windows, limited fighting, limited firecrackers going off in the streets. I'm sure it was hell the further south from Armitage you went - the traffic looked bad enough - but thank you for everything you did. Much appreciated.

I was off duty and my girlfriend was in the car. At least 50 people on that corner. I'm guessing I would have gotten little support from the locals, slow police response as traffic wasn't moving and perhaps putting my girlfriend in danger. Would YOU have jumped into the fire in that situation? Bad career move if you would.
