Riots? Not Quite

This is what qualifies as a riot in uptown?


If the video doesn't play, it's here at this link.


In any case, some misguided and over exuberant youths toss bottles at one another, some rambunctious horseplay ensues, a few bicycles change hands and a car aerial is wielded like a sword. One person went to jail and according to this Channel 5 report, an officer was slightly injured. It's spreading, without a doubt, popping up in all the finer neighborhoods.

In our opinion, whoever shot the video ought to have skipped the camera and invested in a nice sniper rifle instead.

Looked like a baseball fight, just a bunch of posturing. Wish it was more of a hockey fight, with some actual action.

The video was more comical than disturbing. My favorite part was when the one shithead was running down the street while keeping his already-sagged pants from falling around his ankles. Ya can't bring a knife to a gunfight and you shouldn't attempt to engage in a fistfight while holding up your pants.

Actually, I think it might be the City's most entertaining neighborhood, indeed.

SCC,

Did you notice the City of Chicago surveillance camera in the trees at the very end?

Cameras stop crime, there is no need for the police!!!

The cameraman was probably some white, yuppie, urban pioneer who thought it would be great to live in such a "gentrified" location, showing how he is so "beyond" race that he will live in the same neighborhood as they are. After all, there is a Starbucks at Magnolia/Wilson...how bad could the neighborhood be? Now, he's got a condo he can't sell, in a neighborhood that is under siege, in an economy where nobody is buying real estate, and he's stuck on the 3rd floor, watching the animals run free.
I bet that doesn't happen in the surburb he came from...ever. How's that frappacino latte grande tasting?

Uptown has always had it's pockets that are bad areas. Any yuppie who bought a condo because they wanted to be "an urban pioneer" gets what they deserve.

I have cousins who bought condos in Uptown and I told them not to. But hey who am I? I am just some dumb uneducated cop and they are oh so educumated and sophisticated.

SCC,

I think the car aerial you refer to may be a golf club. If you click on the bottom right of the video you can see it in full screen mode. It's possible that I'm wrong. It's been known to happen.

Now I'm sure the youths wielding such golf implements were just on their way home from some golf lessons over at the Marovitz Golf course on the lakefront.

While this may not be as riotalicious as the 68 riots I'd hate to be a pedestrian, bicyclist, or motorist caught in the middle of this. Something like this can easily turn into a smaller scale version of some of the video from the 92 riots in LA.

While your sniper rifle comment was amusing, it came to my mind too, I was thinking of something involving military aircraft. It is the Air and Water show this weekend.

Cops clear the street of innocents and then let the products of the public school system rumble. Meanwhile two helicopters approach from the north and the south on Sheridan Road. I'm thinking of something along the lines of Colonel Kurtz in "Uppocalapyse Now".

"I love the smell of napalm in the morning........"

I live in Uptown. I'm just an average civilian asshole who pays his taxes and tries to stay out of trouble.

It's unfortunate that it takes a video to get the media to pay attention to what is going on around here.

Our wonderful alderman, Helen Shiller, wants to use TIF money to fund a fish farm in Uptown. I know, some of you are saying that because I'm Irish I must be drunk. Well I'm not drunk, at least yet, but the fish farm proposal is true.

Think of that. The police department is undermanned and the city is laying off employees yet somehow Uptown needs a fish farm. I'm telling ya. It drives a pirate to drink. It's a short drive.

I've tried unsuccessfully to get the media to pay attention to some other stories around here involving government naughtiness. All for naught or nautical in my case.

The Uptown Update published a story 16 months ago involving a piece of property that has an eight unit apartment building and is being assessed as vacant land. Did any media outlet run with it?

Nope. Apparently the "mistake" still hasn't been corrected by the assessor. One of my neighbors looked after the assessment notices came out a few weeks back.

Perhaps some intrepid media type will see this on your better read site and run with it.

I'm not holding my breath.

For the good cops reading this stay safe boys and girls and keep up the good work. Many of us realize you have a difficult job and incompetent leadership emanating from the fifth floor of City Hall and in your leaky new HQ building on 35th.

Hi, SCC.

I am an Uptowner and have been enjoying your blog before this incident.I think the "riot" part was intended to be humorous if you look at the original editing on the video. Its more like a pathetic street brawl with golf clubs and bottles. However, people could have gotten hurt nonetheless and who knows how it might have escalated with these guys! In any event, I am glad that the media picked up this video. This is just the latest video proof that our streets no longer belong to law abiding motorists and pedestrians and it must stop! A kid in the neighborhood literally told a resident and off-duty police officer who had filed a police report after witnessing a shooting at 3 p.m. on Montrose to leave if he didn't like it here because he was in "our wicked neighborhood"! Source: www.uptownupdate.com/2009/07/our-wicked-neighborhood.html

Although our alderman's son Brendan Shiller likes to represent people with bogus police suits and this is probably ground zero for COPWATCH, they don't speak for all of us! We need a commonsense police presence and through CAPS, positive loitering, calling shit in and going to court we are trying to do our part.

Please know the CPD is valued here and we want you to get a fair contract and the support you need to do your job safely and well. Some of us are paying over 68% of our property taxes to a Daley-connected developer who is building $400,000 (a piece)units of low-income housing in this real estate market. Some of these apartments will be given away to people on a list kept by the alderman. We want that money to go towards things like public safety, infrastructure and schools as it should. But what Daley wants, he gets.

Law-abiding Chicago taxpayers are being held hostage in their own homes in more ways than one.

For the guy who asked why didn't the first car stop and get out and chase these a-holes, they were outnumbered about 25-1 with jagoffs throwing bottles and wielding baseball bats and a car aerial. Okay Mr. superhero, you get out of the car and run after these guys. That would have been the most stupid thing those officers could do from a tactical standpoint.
Secondly, there was almost no back up. One car after several minutes.
Mr. superhero also criticized the order given by the POs to clear out. Guess what, this is the 23rd District where the alderman's son is a lawyer and makes his living by suing the police department while his mummy sits in the city council with oversight authority of the CPD. If the first car would have done like the good old days and said, "Get the fuck off the street, shitheads, or we'll run your asses over", this video would be on every lousy news outlet in the city and Aldercreature Shiller's little boy would be filing suit against the CPD and the officers.
Please do not criticize the guys that caught this job. They did what they could under the circumstances.
But, you are right about one thing, the animals have taken over the streets and the politicians, plaintiffs' lawyers and federal judges have stripped the police of the ability to do anything about it. Time to buy an Armalite or H-K or just move out of this shitty town.

IC Woman Calls 9-1-1 Over Fast Food Order
Lang
8-15-09

An Iowa City woman has been charged with using 9-1-1 for a non-emergency purpose after police say she called multiple times to complain about her fast food order.

29-year-old Bambi Shequitia Cox of Broadway Street is accused of calling emergency dispatchers three times from the Riverside Drive McDonald’s the night of July 31st. Cox told the 9-1-1 operator that her food was not fresh, and that the restaurant would not give her a refund. The McDonald’s manager requested Cox’s name, address and phone number, but she refused to give it to him.

Cox is charged with Using 9-1-1 for a Non-Emergency Call. If convicted she faces a maximum of 30 days in jail and a $500 fine. A court date is scheduled for Thursday.

Right after I posted this, I see that clip on the news and then see it on the blog. I myself have had to call 911 several times when going thru uptown during the day when this crap is blowing up.Funny , we don't seem to be getting many cases from it though.

Despite what I keep hearing from people about crime rising in uptown, we continue to get virtually no cases .There are good probation officers and good judges for that area , but there's nothing we can do if the cases don't make their way into court for whatever reasons.Surely not blaming the police , but lots of these kids need to be arrested , have their cases filed by the State's Attorneys office as opposed to being screened out , prosecuted, convicted and brought into the system. If need be, give them supervision , at least thats a start.Sure, they'll get only supervision or probation, but at least we'll have them and can violate and send away the ones who don't get the message . I've always believed you can help some of them, but many just need to be gotten off the street. Now , we are probably going to be redistricted because of lack of activity. Can't wait to see what happens when that new development of 178 units of low income housing opens at the new development at Montrose and Broadway, sure all hell will break loose.Who thinks of these things ?
Many of the low income families are already trying to get new housing because things are getting bad and they're just taking their problems to new areas.

To the concerned citizen Irish Pirate. Its nice to know there are a few conservatives in the area, but you are few and far between. You must know that we are being filmed often by Copwatch and their presence just fuels all the drug and alcohol induced morons that partake in all this shit. Now we are also aware that the concerned citizen will be filming us as well. If more cars had arrived at the same time and a more aggressive stance was taken by the police, chases, batons, pepper spray, emergency takedowns etc, I have a feeling that this tape which was offered up to the media would have been manipulated by them into a "police riot." If you lived in the area from 2003-2007 during the Cline years I'm sure you felt safer. We all felt safer. We've lost three murdered in the line of duty in 12 months under the current regime. Do you know how many were murdered in the line of duty under Cline, zero, unheard of in urban policing. Everything is stacked against us right now, from the president (the Cambridge PD acted stupidly and I myself would probably be shot trying to get into my own house in Chicago, ha ha ha) on down to the mayor, the media and the lawyers. Its like being in a continuous game of musical chairs and everytime the music stops you are without a chair, we're just trying to control how far down we fall.

So you want to down a bunch of cars on arrests for this BS? And just in case you missed it, it's all on camera. I digress. Half an hour later, while 3 cars are down on these arrests, DUDE comes back with guns and opens fire (happens all of the time). Now you're really shorthanded because YOU wanted to arrest some shitheads. What if something really blows up then? Those guys still out there aren't going to have much help because of YOU.

Think first! DUDE will be out there again. Screw with them later.

And it has nothing to do with being a DOG! It's called UNDERSTANDING THE SITUATION!

Who’s signing the complaint? Our peace can’t be breached…. I remember that class that the Department gave us. Heaven forbid, you, I or another cop violates “shitheads” civil rights. And in that neighborhood…. Someone is looking out the window with a camera!

Here’s another interesting and plausible scenario for you. Cops get out of the car, the grab shithead, shithead being typical shithead, decides “I aint goin to jails!” and resists/fights.

Sound plausible?

At this point, the very same “concerned citizen” with the camera sends the video to the media, or does the exact same thing: Posts it on Youtube. However, this time it has the caption of “Look at the brutal racists Chicago Police in out lovely gentrified neighborhood”. It will be the last video you see before the Judges in Civil as well as Federal Court hand out your sentence.

Don’t get me wrong! I have locked up hundreds of shitheads, just like this, and worse. But that was in a different time, a different age of “Policing”. An age where WE were right. Today, with this leadership, and politics? Well, lets just say I’m sick of getting CR’s, Suits, Suspended, Trips to IRPA/IAD, Possible Rule 14 violations, worry about punitive damages… And for what? Treating “Shithead” like the animal he is, and putting him in a cage? To me, and a lot of others, it’s not worth it anymore!

You wanted justice for those "poor ghetto victims of police brutality," well you got it, and then some. It ain't just a news clip anymore. Now it's real life. And when that poor ghetto victim of police brutality smashes your fucking face in because he knows the police aren't going to smash his in, then you'll have your justice.

23 years on and counting until I can leave says when that first car pulled up they stayed in the car WAY too long. They even allowed part of the group to follow behind them on foot after they made that U turn. They were sitting ducks if one of the group decided to pop off a shot at the car. They would not of even known which dude fired at them because they would not have seen a thing from behind. The group realized that the first car was not taking any action and continued to perform. They did not begin to leave until they heard the other cars coming. Be careful if you are still INSIDE of a car and there is an uncontrolled situation around you. All the reason more to BACK EACH OTHER UP OUT THERE!!! Don't wait until the first car calls for help to start going. You hear the radio just start heading that way on your own if it sounds important enough. Thats how I remember it being when I was new and learning the job. An old timer from the 60's showed me then that the streets belong to the police not the gangs and we can shut a street down whenever we need to. Thats still possible now if you know how to do it. Be careful and stay safe.

That's what I'd have done in the '80s when we had the manpower. Now, you try to grab 10-15 of 'em and you're going right into a no cars available or an Emergency plan. For what?

With the current manpower shortage and reassignment of tactical teams and special units to other areas of the city, this is the expected results in the stripped districts. The Stuttering Prick and Fed Fraud knew this would happen and don't care. Remember that at election time!

And heaven forbid if the police responding actually cracked some deserving skulls, the same fools taping this shit, led by J-Fraud, would be screaming to lock up the officers on civil rights violations.

And people such as friends and family that have never lived in the City look at me like I'm crazy when I say that I don't want 1's living anywhere near me (The Huxtables being the ONLY exception).

They are oblivious to the true nature of the beast and all the shit these people bring with them regardless of where the government puts them.

More video of this nature needs to be disseminated constantly so maybe, just maybe, the liberal jagoffs finally open their eyes and see that they've been championing a losing cause when rallying to the aid and defense of this "discriminated-against race".

I would've done the same thing the 023 guys did upon arriving. Blow the air horn to hopefully scatter the natives. I ain't getting out of the car unless I'm being threatened directly in some way. Otherwise, let the animals slither off into the darkness to return again when po-po rolls off.

And I haven't heard "Lights Out!" in quite some time. To me that means that 023 probably has inherited some of the West Side's finer citizens, if ghetto dialect is specific to location, that is.

Either way, enjoy your neighbors, Mr. "I Probably Should've Looked At This Neighborhood Sometime After 2P.M. Before I Closed On My Condo".

This "riot" couldn't be a pimple on the ass of what was the first 2 Bulls riots on the West and South Sides, with Humboldt Park being a close third.

Sorry, old-timers, I wasn't around for the convention riots, so I can't speak for those, although I KNOW they were much worse than the Bulls(hit).

Enjoy co-habitating with the savage, Mr. Video Camera. We (the real police) have been trying to warn you liberal pukes for quite some time about what was coming around the bend. We've just about begged you to let us "take the gloves off" and handle business they way it's supposed to be handled, but we wouldn't want to offend anyone - ain't that right?

And here's the conundrum....will the police that used to handle business decide it's worth it to stick their necks out when we're (hopefully soon) unleashed? The vast majority of the police hired and trained in the last several years are useless when it comes to taking care of business, and not too many of those that can are willing to train these idiots the proper way of dealing with this shit. The old-timers have hung up their hats and put on cruise control, riding safely to their retirement while the newer kids will never be taught anything other than being warm and fuzzy and the like.

This city is doomed and I'm glad I'll be long gone away from it in just a few short years.

The very second some coppers take care of business the old fashioned way, these same people who are amazed by how the "white tee shirts" are doing the fool with impunity will fall over each other providing video to the media to help j-fart drag yet more Policemen up a gnarled, knotty pine for crucifixion.

People are now real quick to talk shit about Policemen "not doing anything" or being "scared." It's not quite that simple. No copper in his/her right mind is going to risk their job and freedom (sin and a shame what happened to Ofc. Cozzi) thereby jeopardizing being able to provide food, shelter and support to their families and loved ones. No, we're not necessarily afraid but we're far from stupid as some people wished we were. We're just making a justifiable and reasonable effort in self preservation.

It seems as if the Policeman fights back or strikes a hard blow for himself, in the defense of others or in the name of the law, the collective audience gasps "how dare you strike such a blow, Policemen shouldn't be able to do that!"

For those who consider the current detached method of policing to be selfish, we say fuck you. You're no better than the politicians and exempts elbowing each other for the front row to shed false tears for bright lights and cameras at a Policeman's funeral. They love to talk about our "willing" sacrifices but get upset when we do what needs to be done to survive.

It seems as if it's alright to take a bullet, get spit on, have things thrown at you and put up with the blatant public and institutional disrespect that would drive the average person mad! Policemen endure this for 20 to 40 plus years yet people talk shit about "sweet pensions" "early retirements" and "hidden money."

Get over yourselves. We've collectively earned every penny of this comparative pittance and have a litany of broken/dislocated/torn-up/surgically repaired-replaced/worn out body parts to prove it along with the friends and comrades who died by the hands of others, by their own hands or just succumbing due to the pressures of the job.

The blame for the current state of affairs in this city rests squarely on the shoulders of the mayor, the aldermen the superintendent with material aid given by the news media.

The mayor is a petty and vindictive man who has openly vowed to destroy C.P.D for personal and political reasons. He only has some pause now because his plan has worked too well. As long as bloodshed and bullshit is confined to areas like Englewood, Austin, Lawndale, he didn't give a shit if it spread to neighborhoods where Policemen, Firemen and most city workers lived.

The superintendent is vicious, a liar and bereft of any decency, humanity, character or courage. He should humbly hold his hat in his hands and genuflect upon the tops of his shoes WHENEVER he dares to cross a POLICEMAN'S path. He mocks us, he mocks those Stars in the display case and makes them to stink when he wears OUR UNIFORM! We have no trust and no use for this reptilian.

Grandfatherly wisdom dictates we beware of a man who can't look you in the eye, shake your hands or sit and have a drink in the company of MEN and talk as only MEN can.

Now the bloodshed and bullshit is beginning to spill over into areas like Lincoln Park in loud, vivid colors and the $20k to $70k property tax payers (read as BIG MONEY CONTRIBUTORS to the local democratic machine) who were under the spell of the "magick odours and enchanting musick" spewing from the Daley colon are waking up and realizing that they're actually being bullshitted and shitted on just like us common
folk and they're not too happy about it.

The CITIZENS who pay the disproportionate amount of freight in this city need to stand up and say WE NEED OUR POLICE TO BE THE POLICE, POLITICALLY CORRECT CONSIDERATIONS BE DAMNED...

2. Legalize and tax drugs. The drug war is a failure and causes more problems that it solves. Treat it as a public health problem. Better yet give the assholes in society all the drugs they want and send in the bulldozers to clean up their bodies after they overdose.

3. Legalize prostitution. I'm ugly and I need all the help I can get. It's another human nature issue. Just regulate it and try to make sure the people who are involved in it are doing it voluntarily and of legal age. Also try to discourage them from political careers after they leave the sex industry.

4. I'm not a big fan of weapons, but I used to be in the Army and the older I get the more important the Second amendment seems. I see what's happening in Iran and realize the importance of decent people having the right to own weapons. Plus a nice shotgun would come in handy if some nefarious person decided to break into my place.

5. Increase the public corruption fighting arms of various Federal agencies. Give the Feds some more accountants to look at various governmental books. They might even find some corruption in local government here in Chicago. Perhaps.

6. If you're receiving some form of governmental assistance birth control is mandatory. Hell, I'd even consider "licensing" parents, but if that had happened in the past the government would have forcibly given my dad a vasectomy and I'd never have been born.

7. Retroactive abortion. There are always loopholes in abortion laws so it's better to refer to it as "R.A" than the death penalty.

8. I know a little about policing and I'd let cops "shift" over to other governmental jobs if they got burned out on law enforcement. It's a nasty job, particularly in an urban department. Let's say someone does 10 years as a Chicago Cop. Let them move over to driving a city truck if they want to. They can just move their pension over. I wouldn't limit the jobs the cops could shift into. Essentially police would get first crack at other city jobs and NOT lose their pension rights.

Perhaps the "City that Works for Some" could even institute a "reserve" police program where such cops could still work for the city and keep their hands in law enforcement.

Too many cops stay on the job for the pension. Let them leave with some financial security.

9. Did I mention that whole legalizing hooker thang? I really like that one.

10. See number 9

Oh well. I'm going out now. We'll see if a one legged man can find a woman tonight. Wish me luck because otherwise I'll have to utilize the internet to find a hooker.

The City of Chicago will basically be closed for business on Aug. 17, a reduced-service day in which most city employees are off without pay, according to a release from the Office of Budget and Management. City Hall, public libraries, health clinics and most city offices will be closed.

Emergency service providers including police, firefighters and paramedics will be working at full strength, but most services not directly related to public safety, including street sweeping, will not be provided, the release said.

That also includes garbage pickup. Residents who receive regular collection on Mondays should expect trash to be picked up the following day, the release said. Some other customers may experience a one-day delay as collectors catch up.

In terms of a riot or civil disturbance, the Bulls victory riots and even the 1968 Democratic Convention can not compare with the violence of THE RIOT in 011 and the West Side after the assassination of MLK on April 4, 1968.

On a city-wide basis, the video of Leland and Sheridan Rd. is nothing more than a common street disturbance.

About 4:50 a.m., three males, whose ages were not available, were in a vehicle traveling through an alley in the 1200 block of West Leland Avenue, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

An unknown offender approached the vehicle on foot and fired shots, striking one person in his arm, one in his thigh and grazing another, Greer said.

The three males were taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

No one was in custody as of 5 a.m. and Belmont Area detectives are investigating.

I'm the guy who filmed the footage. It's not spilling my latte or property values I worry about. I worry about the hard-working families who were trying to cross the street at 9:10PM when they had to take cover from a hail of glass bottles; the kids who were returning from playing ball in Arai park when they witnessed this; the couples who were out enjoying the great weather that evening and had to turn back. Not to mention the people who had to flee the bullets that were fired the following night. This is what I care about. I care about the welfare of the people around me. And you should too.

I read your other posts.

(1) Good judges in juvenile court? You are joking, right? Day after day I see those judges letting these honor students pillage the community, after committing heinous crimes. Maybe the judge should buy a cake to celebrate the honor student's completion of probation? Oh, yeah, it happened, and he picked the cake, took the plates and utensils, and left the court to the judge's surprise, while all 10 arresting officers on at least 5 cases laughed.

(2)Competent Juvenile Probation Officers? Yeah, I have not found one that will violate, and advocate a deviant be sent to St. Charles for numerous violations, unless newsworthy of course... Nix that one. What happened to the juvie that was on probation for impersonating the police, got arrested and extended probation again for impersonating the police after driving a squad car in 003, then arrested for stealing a car and leading police on a car chase? 18 months probation??? Keep up the good work. Be careful, we might give you quadruple probation if you fuck up again!!!!!!!!

Next election, get all those pissed off workers to join the Revolution and sweep the bastards out of office and kick the 'Lymics.

Make the politicians FEAR US.

To Joseph the guy from Detroit who filmed the video, GET USED TO IT!!!! That is the police service you will keep getting and I don't blame the responding officers one bit on how they handled the situation. Until you uptown liberals stop filming the police, as a community protest and demand the police bust heads, get rid of b.s. cr#,indemnify officers from punitive damages, demand command staff and politicians back the police 100% when dealing with these misunderstood youths, etc... this will be the police force you wanted. You made your bed now sleep in it.

Hey, buddy, don't knock that walmart gig, there's a lot more eye candy there than at the local drink & drive.

"I'm the guy who filmed the footage. It's not spilling my latte or property values I worry about. I worry about the hard-working families who were trying to cross the street at 9:10PM when they had to take cover from a hail of glass bottles; the kids who were returning from playing ball in Arai park when they witnessed this; the couples who were out enjoying the great weather that evening and had to turn back. Not to mention the people who had to flee the bullets that were fired the following night. This is what I care about. I care about the welfare of the people around me. And you should too.

PS: I'm from Detroit.

So why did you bring only a video camera with you to the scene of all this mayhem?

"Or worse yet, what would have happened if it'd been a woman or two?"

Rioting in the street? Not sure. If they had DLs, maybe an ANOV?? If not, an arrest??

You'll be a Walmart greeter consultant? Swell. Glad you're on our side, Top Gun.

I know people need the money but if nobody signs up for that safe city nonsense, the city will see how fed up we all are. Work special or anything else but don't let the city get the best of us. Cops working safe city just means more complaints and lawsuits on your days off.

True but all the young wonder kids need the bucks,and if they get sued are assured the bosses have their backs,albeit with a twitsing knife,and a "see you at YOUR fundraiser mentality"!

And this mess was the lead story on channel 7 news tonight? Hah!

The same thing happened twice last week just west of Humboldt Park in 014.

I guess we're used to it, though.
