Hilarious Channel 5 Report

  • Taste of Chicago revelers will see more police, and for the first time they'll have to enter at security-heavy entrances in a comprehensive plan Supt. Jody Weis unveiled Thursday designed to quell the violence that landed him on the hot seat last year.

    [...] "Folks will feel very safe because they're going to see a police officer on almost every block, and in some instances 20 feet, so we're going to have a very hard presence in terms of letting people know we have a lot of officers in place," he said.
At least the City is acknowledging last year's Taste was screwed up beyond belief. But Channel 5 did a report on this same thing Friday night. And in the background shot behind the reporter standing in the middle of the Taste, describing how tight security was going to be? Three or four jagoffs "throwing up for the nation." We just about died laughing. Channel 5 has thus far refrained from posting this piece.

The fact is, even with secured entrances and high visibility presence, gang bangers and ne'er-do-wells are going to get in. And depending on how they feel like behaving, they are going to cause trouble. There's too much to cover and it's too open. It's big and quite frankly, it has gotten too large to effectively police.

You want to start having nightmares? Think about ten guys with rifles landed at the yacht club walking southwest. It's Mumbai on the Lakefront.

Wait, for the first time ever we have security entrances? Um, NOT.

We always had screening on the way in, and barrels of confiscated alcoholic beverages to prove it. This only fell apart in the last couple of years.

So, now Weis claims HE invented the wheel? Pitiful.

Yeah, that is right. They will see A police officer. One.
We had 8 sectors to cover today and 8 officers to cover them. By about 1400 hrs each sector had approx. 190-250 people occupying that space. Bear in mind that each of these sectors overlap. 8 officers for the stretch of Jackson between Michigan and the Lake. This includes two sound-stages, the Petrillo and the Best Buy stage. Does that sound safe to you? The commander admitted to everyone at roll call that we don't have enough help, and said that last year's fiasco was the fault of "not having aggressive enough officers." What a douche.

I went there a few years ago with my son and wife, in the morning mind you before pookie, tay tay and june bug get out of bed. There were still a few shitheads around so we left in the afternoon, and I got the feeling it would go up for grabs that night... was right of course.

It's sad that a life long resident of Chicago can't enjoy a festival meant for families anymore. I'm heading to Milwaukee. Good job Daley. You drove out everyone who will never vote for you. You can keep the shitheads and libtards.

I wish no ill will on anyone, but it is going to take another 9-11 before this society realizes we need more cops! More manpower... plain and simple! Go ahead, ald Flores... lay off cops and see what happens! Layoff firemen and see what happens! This city is already not any where close to being ready for a 9-11 type attack! We are a sitting duck! Gang bangers or no gang bangers... when shit hits the fan... AND IT WILL... we will not be ready... god speed Chicago!!!

The heightened security didn't scare off at least one particular shitbird today that was caught at a security entry point. He was caught w/ with a gun (nice job guys/gals) at the entrance of Monroe/Jackson. Just still have to wonder how many get by or are on the perimeter.

Personally, I found the Taste to be way over priced and not worth the trouble. This was before the gangs made their presence. Now, I'd rather take the family to a nice restaurant or food court with clean rest rooms and civilized people. Now it's to dangerous and a rip off plain and simple, but the media will never tell the tourists the truth.

It would have been even more hysterical if the Channel 5 reporter was interviewing da WEISel with the 'bangers flashing gang signs in the background.

Exhibit "A" that the MSM censors their so-called news. They make the old PRAVDA look like the gold standard of vigilant journalism in this Orwellian nightmare that is Daleyville.

You've got to laugh at this consummate jagoff "leading" the CPD trainwreck just to preserve your sanity.

I think Mumbai can easily happen here. You know where it can't happen? Utah, Florida, Arizona, Michigan, Vermont, Alaska, Indiana, Idaho, Colorado, Texas (should be first on the list) - and any other state with CCW.

Step 1 is to increase the number of police officers and make sure you guys are paid well. Step two is to make sure guys like me who don't break any laws other than slightly exceeding our underposted speed limits, have the right to defend themselves and their families against these assholes that multiply like rats. The thing is, if we just took some of the corruption and olympics money and gave it to you guys, we'd have more police. If we just allowed CCW, which doesn't cost the state/city anything (in fact, they earn some money in fees), crime will plummet just like it has in every other state that enacted it.

And yet...we stand behind the fact that 'guns cause crime.' O rly?

gotta give Keating his first kudos ever, he talked about the problem with protesters and 1st amendment issues, he told the p/o's to notify their supervisors, and they will notify him and he will make the decision as to what the course of action will be. In theory this takes everyone below him off the lawsuit. He is being sued because of last years protests.
he is a crazy man out there on his chariot, but he isn't asking you to do anything he won't do himself. his big problem is he doesn't trust people to do their jobs, so he flies from point a to point b barking out demands.

What exactly would u charge someone with for having their hats cocked and throwing signs. Since we cannot sign DC complaints anymore. Whats the charge without complainant? You go lock them up and violate their rights. Its just the climate we live in now so deal with it.

They don't care about your safety. If they did, which they don't, we would have 3,421 more officers on the street that we're short and the number, unfortunately keeps rising.

Did you know their is a itty bitty class of recruits in the academy numbering a whopping 44. hmmm, lets see - we're supposed to loose an anticipated 800+ this year alone. Do the math people!~

"Think about ten guys with rifles landed at the yacht club walking southwest. It's Mumbai on the Lakefront."

You don't need any dramatic rubber-boat landing here, with the men paddling quietly, ducking under the searchlight beams as guard dogs bark off in the distance.

They can drive in from Bridgeview, clapping and singing songs, or simply take the bus from "the incubator of terrorism" over at Devon and Western -- "Mohammed Sheikh Agarwal Drive," or whatever the City of Chicago has wisely labeled it with those "auxiliary" street-name signs.

Wasn't most of the "trouble" caused outside of the Waste?

And these 10 guys with rifles, did they pass the power test?

If you're a woman, thanks for the props. If you're a man, you're going to be a great catch for some gal! Either way, thanks.

Why should CPD do all ToC security ??
Let the hired security handle patrol of the grounds, with CPD there for arrests.

In general groups of 5-6 officers were posted in spots chatting. The usual "special" beer vendor worked Butler field.

Blue tee-shirt security did chase away bucket boys. And this years music lineup is lame.

A bunch of people from the old old gang crimes units worked off-duty security for that outfit. They've been around forever. They were good guys and paid well. Get to know them, then you can work for them instead of part-time for daley. They run a tight ship.

You want to start having nightmares? Think about ten guys with rifles landed at the yacht club walking southwest. It's Mumbai on the Lakefront.

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

This is not as far fetched as you might think! With the city on the news in every country in the world over the last year due to this being Obama's hometown, a lot of attention is now focused on Chicago. A handful of turban heads with AK's and a few home made hand grenades tossed into the crowd would make Mumbai look like a picnic. If they did it right, they could escape into the mayhem with ease.

Can't there be a dress code - no clothing in specific color combinations known to be favored by gangs, no baggy pants hanging down past butt cracks, no other clothes/shoes/accessories denoting gang affiliation, etc? Or is that considered racial profiling?

Call out the Coast Guard to patrol the lakefront w/armed vessels. Or have fun with the yacht club pukes and place some strategic remotely controlled depth charges - call it "Operation Hey man, you sunk my Battleship"
