Bystanders Pummel Purse Snatcher

  • Freelance photographer Mike Anzaldi was on his way to lunch in Chinatown on Tuesday when he happened upon a scene of several men holding an alleged purse-snatcher. Chicago police soon arrived and arrested the man, who was later charged with misdemeanor theft and battery.
There's a slide show, too. We can't embed it but here's a link. The offender gets in a few good bites on clothing and a hand before being clocked.

And as noted by a few wags here and at the BreakingNews site, if this had been the police fighting this jagoff, it's be front page news for days, the cops would be at Call Back and the offender would have thirty different bottom feeders knocking at his door looking for a contingency fee.

Wow from the photos you would think the guy in the gray sweater was beating the a-hole. my favorite quote has to be " I don't know how he was bleeding... he didnt take any blows to the face" then the next picture shows the man in the gray sweater what appears to be a giving the offender a blow to the face with his elbow.


**good work on holding the bastard until the police came**

Yeah seven minutes is a life time to hold someone, maybe Daley SHOULD GIVE A DAMN TEST ALREADY!

While "Freelance Photographer Mike Anzaldi" stood by and DID ABSOLUTLY NOTHING! Way to go bitch, just keep on clicking away! What if it happens to you or yours Mikey, you want us to just stand around?

He was RWOC'd by the way! The "Great Victim” was adamant about NOT SIGNING COMPALINTS! She wanted her stuff back, and wanted to go home. She could have cared less about the bad guy, or the fact that the offender fit the description of a strong-armed robber who his that area twice before. She, the VICTIM, was on the phone with HER lawyer, crying that the Police wouldn’t return her belongings fast enough. The Officers and bosses involved DID try, and attempted to do the RIGHT THING, alas, it was all for naught. I will actually feel sorry for this shitheads NEXT victim, because that time, its going to be this bitches fault!

I always thought Jesse was a con man , opportunist who took advantage of his own people's gullability. I never paid that much attention to the specifics of what he said before but after listening to him recently and reading this I think he is truly a stupid person. Maybe its just that he is going senile - really. What a goof.

If you do something like that off duty the brass would say you should have just called 911, it was not an immediate threat of life. And then J-Fed will send you to the Federal Courts and you can have lunch and dinner every day with Billy Cozzi(which would be an honor.)

The part of this job I enjoy the most now is that I just don't care anymore about anything. When the brass tell their motivational lies, I just don't listen. It's great and I have no more stress. They killed the job not us.

I don't like our mayor and I didn't want the Olympics here. But some of you should try reading the Olympic coverage by those who actually - well, cover - the Olympics and sports for a living. The failure to bring the Games here has nothing to do with Chicago's crime rate, corruption, Daley, the Obamas or the opinion of John Kass. Of course, when Kass is busy gloating he apparently becomes so myopic that he is unable to clearly articulate - except to those who already agree with everything he says. Yes, I am a cop. Yes, Mayor Daley has to go. But as far as this loss goes, the mayor has nothing to be ashamed of.

NICE COMMENT OH CLOUTED ONE, BUT SAVE YOUR BULLSHIT FOR 35TH STREET KOOL-AID BREAKS.

Great job to the citizens who captured this strong arm robber. But if a cop was doing these "moves" to hold on to the offender, a lot of people would be up in arms and saying "police brutality". Chicago cops are not supermen and superwomen. They don't have super powers that make it easier for them to chase, grab and arrest people. They have to do the same moves that the three men in the photo used. But every week there are people in the media and people that the media interview would be quick to say that it shouldn't take three people to take down one man. But clearly it does. God bless the good samaritans and the CPD.

I work in 021 and was there when the victim came into the station. She bitched and moaned the wole time that she did not want to stick around for the dicks and S/A to arrvie. The P/Os who handled this were trying to to charge him with strongarm robbery. But in typical 021 victim fashion, all the victim ated was to get her shit back and go. The P/Os and the W/C tried to explain to her tha if he wasn't charged with robbery he would be back to do this again to someone else. She would have none of it. Called her "attorney" and was telling him that the polic would not give her her property back. Then pulled the "Ihave a headache. I have to go" bullshit. She was offered medical assistance but refused. Then thry were going to try to put a hold on him but couldn't even get that without the dicks talking to her so they had o other option but to charge him with theft and battery then hope for an upgrade at his court date, which we all no won't happen because the offender and vicim, either both or at least one of them won't show. This is why I'm all for holding their proerty until charges are approved or their court day. You know damn well all she wanted was her stuff back and screw the hard work these officers did to try to get robbery approved. And they did try hard. One of them, E.J was a tact officer for years and knows his shit. But they exhausted every option they had and finally had to go with the misdemeanor charges. F@*&king victims are worse than offenders when it comes to dealing with them. Don't want to be put out for a minute.

Wednesday's City Hall March

I expect to see Cook County Board President Candidate, Lt. John Garrido, to be upfront and leading the troops if he expects a single police vote.

Mike Shields was elected by us to represent us, he had better be upfront leading. Mike loves to tell the story about how his brother led the troops into the Mayor's office during the last contract march. Talk is cheap, lets see you lead us now. No more talk about taking Daley out. Talk is cheap, we demand action.

Jimmy Maurer can now lead us too, now that he got a taste of City Hall. Jimmy it's time to ante up and lead the mean and women like a real General would do.

I also expect to see all of the FOP & PBPA officers leading from the front. If you expect us to vote for any of you, LEAD!

The time is now, the media is keenly focused on Chicago and the Mayor is weak.

Lets saddle up and get er done!

If it's true that the woman refused to sign complaints, (as I presume it was, but was not there) then she also is a POS. Overall this incident defines the pathetic state Chicago is in. You could hire 3000 more coppers, but we can't do any more if cameras are all around documenting every nuance, and victims refuse to sign complaints. Vote everyone out of office and start fresh with 2 term limits.

Hey! Mr. Glory Hound Reporter, did you even make an effort to put down the camera and help out? Or did you get "Tunnel Vision", and were you thinking that maybe you photos would make it on the cover of time magazine? Listen dickhead, Police Officers of Chicago and all over the country deal with this shit day in and day out. Now I'm not complaining, it's what our job entails, and what we signed up for.

Just so you know? This criminal piece of shit wouldve reacted to the police the same way. Meaning: He wouldn't have gone quietly! He would kicked, bit, spit, punched, the ONE MAN (1 CAR OFFICER) until his back up arrived. And who knows how long that would've taken being 021st District where there's 2 - Two man cars forced to stay in the Dearborn homes 24hours a day, and not too far away from there.

But the reality is, the first responding officer wouldve had to take action necessary to not only to effect an arrest, but to defend himself as well. Jagoff, do-gooder, trouble making, glory hounds like you would've sat back and played Monday morning quarterback had this just been a policeman.

By the way? This guy did take a beating from Cigarette Smoking Kung-Fu Kid who showed up. Blood just doesn't appear for no reason, but funny how you try to candy coat this guys ass kicking.

WHO CARES if this worthless piece of shit criminal got his ass kicked! He deserved it!
KUDOS TO THESE GOOD CITIZENS.

So, ass wipe, lets call a spade a spade here! This guy got his Ass Kicked by the Citizens! AND THAT'S ok!!!! Here you are you are with your selective commentary trying to defend the citizens when you didn't have to - AT ALL.

Why? Cause there's no Policeman on the Planet who would arrested the citizen(s) for defending themselves, or being a good Samaritan while trying to assist/capture a FELON, or any other criminal in who's on the run for that matter.

Good thing is? You shed light on only a Minuscule of what Police Officers go through and deal with on an Daily basis.

But here's a real thought as I listen and viewed your cheezy slide show you Fucking ass wipe! These citizens needed help, and there you were trying to get "The Money Shot". Fucking Sissy! So, from a Police stand point? You are far from a Hero! Wonder what your family, girlfriend, or boyfriend would think of you.

If the Mayor doesnt hire the number of police we should have, then you're going to see a lot of Charlie Bronsons' taking matters into their own hands. And guess what? I'd welcome that. Cause our powder puff Technics and handcuffs, along with our hands tied behind our back, reporters like you, citizens like you make it very difficult for the Police to want to do their job without worry about someone trying to get us in trouble, and with our weak ass brass who are all about knee-jerk reactions? Citizens... in reality, are the only ones who can actually do what they have to do to prevent themselves or defend themselves against these animalistic criminals you do-gooders, and people in the media label as "Victim's of Society".

Wouldn't it be poetic then when the shit head brings his lawsuit that he includes her in it? Looking at the photos it looks like she put her hands on him.

The bitch probably went home and complained to everyone about how long it took the CPD to arrive and how long she had to wait at the station.

I've been in situations like that when you have the offender in custody and the victim doesn't want to put in the effort to see that he/she gets what's coming to them.

The last time this happened I grabbed the offender and when all the paper work was done I handed the victim his copies and gave him the court date to which he stated, " Court? Oh, I can't go to court. I can't take the time off from work." When I told him that if he doesn't show, the case would be thrown out. Mr. Victim didn't care. On the court date Mr. Victim was a no show so the shithead got a pass from the judge and threw the case out.

The video indicated that it took the police at least 7-8 minutes to get there. Well, let me tell you, its going to take longer if Daley don't hire more police. This city of going up for grabs. There was an incident in the 5th District, where there was a mental involved with a child. It took the police 45 minutes to respond. The CFD had to intervene and talked the mental down. We are on the path of being another Detroit. Maybe this is the plan for all the gang bangers to kill each other off.

The police are down by a few thousand. Wake You People. Daley wants certain property on the southside and westside. If the people continue to kill each other (look at Englewood and Wentworth areas), then the property will become available for Urban Renewal. This way he can push the project people and gangbangers into the suburbs. DUAH. So, things are NOT GOING to get any better. So just live with it.

She shouldn't get her stuff back until she goes to court.

Why officers on this department continue to bend rules to satisfy their own sense of moral justice is beyond me. If the victim won't sign complaints that a crime occurred then the presumption is that the offender obtained her property legally.

Expect both the offender and victim to complain and sue the officers involved.

The people who live in this city are disgusting.

The photog that just kept shooting while the action was in-progress is a reminder of the famous incident in Saigon in the early 1960's. As a protest of the (then growing) Viet Nam War, a Buddhist monk doused himself with gasoline and lit himself on fire. All the while the media watched, filmed and did nothing to stop it.

They've come a long way...maybe not.

Something that wasn't mentioned about the photographer's play by play on the news, was how he defended each action of the "good semaritans". He filled in the blanks defending eveything they did and how each action was justified. Even making sure to downplay the number of strikers the "bad guy" took and how he "had no idea why he was bleeding".

If that had been to police officers fighting with the "bad guy", I somehow think that his description of events would have been much different. Any strikes or holds would have been describe as "unecessary brutality". "The big bad policeman didn't have to do what they did", etc.. etc.. etc...

It's just funny how things change when the "average joe" puts themselves in our shoes... all of the sudden it's all legit for them.

Just so you know, I think those "good semaritans" did a great job and were probably way to nice to guy! I just know how he would have detailed the incident of those two guys were cops not civilians.

October 5, 2009 (CHICAGO) -- Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has three words for Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels: "Hardy har har."

That was Quinn's reaction Monday to Daniels, who joked recently about what the world was coming to when Chicago "can't fix an election anymore" and win the Olympics.

Chicago lost its bid to host the 2016 Summer Games when the International Olympic Committee voted Friday to give the games to Rio de Janeiro. Chicago was eliminated in the first round of voting.

Quinn was in Copenhagen for the IOC vote, and he says Chicago and Illinois couldn't have done any better. He says the city laid out an excellent bid

That's an inspiration. Seriously, as long as Daley and his crew are refusing to properly staff, resource and manage the institution dedicated to protecting our rights from tyrants like this little purse thief, we must be prepared to defend our communities at all costs. Don't let anyone get away with anything! Maybe if we all start making citizens arrests the people downtown will figure out that the incident decline is due to understaffing and an inability of officers on duty to get to all their calls before people give up waiting. Meanwhile calls for service go up up up. Violence among our youth is on the rise. The number of drug pushers in our nighborhoods continues to increase. Perhaps it's time to start deputizing us ordinary citizens. After all, once government fails to protect the rights of the good citizens it represents, it fails to serve it's purpose. This was the main idea of the Declaration of Independence. Once government fails in its duty to protect us, it is the responsibility and "right of the people to alter or abolish it; and institute new government.

I don't understand most of the comments on this page. Everyone who says "the cops aren't allowed to do this" seems to me to be confused. You are *different* from civilians. You are trained. You have restraints on you. You have mace or something similar. You have a coordinated response. You should not *need* to flail around like a bunch of civilians.

Am I missing something? Sometimes the cops need to kick ass, but it seems like the job is better and safer if the training, restraints, mace, and coordination are used.

Obviously I am not a cop, but I am confused.

SCC, you're headline to this post was all wrong! There was no "pummeling." HIs use of force was met with force needed by the
men who had him to be able to detain him for the cops. For all the fight he threw out, he wasn't too badly damaged at all.
The sad thign is what happened in the station in 021. Little cooperation on the part of the victim; this is why a lot of foreigners/non or poor English speaking people make such great victims for these bums. The foreigners don't want any part of the Cook County criminal justice system, and these thugs know it!
Thank god it was the citizens and NOT the arriving coppers who put the choke holds on the bad guy.

...charge him with theft and battery then hope for an upgrade at his court date, which we all no won't happen because the offender and vicim, either both or at least one of them won't show. This is why I'm all for holding their proerty until charges are approved or their court day. You know damn well all she wanted was her stuff back and screw the hard work these officers did to try to get robbery approved. And they did try hard. One of them, E.J was a tact officer for years and knows his shit. But they exhausted every option they had and finally had to go with the misdemeanor charges. F@*&king victims are worse than offenders when it comes to dealing with them. Don't want to be put out for a minute.

Council Panel Approves $35.8 Million In Incentives To United Airlines

by Hal Dardick at 4:22 p.m.

A key City Council committee today authorized $35.8 million in incentives to help United Airlines with its move to the Willis Tower.

United, in turn, must employee at least 2,500 people at the city’s tallest building for the next 10 years, said William Eager, deputy commissioner of the city’s Community Development Department.

"United made it clear they were looking for a new headquarters," he said. "We wanted the city to be as competitive as possible."

Photographers like the man who shot this series think in a completely different way than ordinary people. They have "rules" which govern their behavior,and one of those include not intervening.

Still, I have to respect him for not admitting how the savage's nose began to bleed. You know damn well he saw it occur, but decided not to admit how. I'm sure he doesn't want one of those men involved to receive frivolous lawsuits.

Yes. You are confused. Half-assed policwork is when we get hurt. Try to gently place and asshole into custody. You will end up being eaten alive. For you see, good citizen, we are dealing with a criminal, primal mentality. they sense weakness and its alllll over. Notice how bloody the last few years have been? Cause the dept's balls have been cut off... so that we can coordinate and be civil.... Basically, if we do ANYTHING, we get sued. So, we do NOTHING. Hope that clears up your confusion.... in short, better be able to fend for yourselves, cause we are pretty much limited to report taking these days...

All I can say is, if you hate the job that much, get a different one. If you don't think you know techniques, and have the ability to drop some asshole thief easier than a bunch of civilians, what do you think you're bringing to the table? Regardless of the understaffing, lack of a contract, incompetent leadership etc., if you are just me, but with a gun and a billy club, maybe THAT is a problem.

And future victim? Yeah, if the board here is representative of the CPD in general. Let's hope there are still cops who are putting in more than minimal effort.

so, i read the entry and ran down the comment section. "bitch, pussy, whore, dork, coward, loser, dickhead, asshole, hippocrite (which is nothing...hypocrite maybe?), jagoff, glory hound, piece of shit and liberal media scum." sure i missed some too.

hopefully, the blog comments here represent a very small sampling of the attitudes at the CPD. i have since read other threads, including the one about my arrest last year. the overwhelming theme is that the rank and file have a whole lot of hate. they hate weis, they hate the mayor, they hate the aldermen, they hate the president, they HATE the media and they hate the "savage" public they protect. what's left to hate?

the public knows you're mad. the police are underpaid and under-appreciated. you have a very good reason to be angry, so does the rest of the city, state, country, world. everyone is underpaid and under-appreciated.

you have used my images and commentary to judge mine and the other's actions. you have concluded- without knowledge- that i should have piled on, and beaten the man. what you didn't see outside the first several frames were the others also standing by in case additional hands were needed. those hands, and feet- knew karate. this was not a riot- far from it.

the dept collectively flipped its lid after the media and public questioned the loop shooting of a wacko with a knife. "you never question the actions of an officer" (in that situation) one said. but, here we are- questioning the actions of a jagoff with a camera.

perhaps you see no value in having images of the incident. fair enough, but consider that i have emails from residents asking for some images to post in the neighborhood.

one last thing...someone compared this chinatown incident with the pulitzer prize photo that malcolm browne shot in 1963 of a monk protesting the persecution of buddhists by the south vietnamese government. (sorry fella, but it wasn't a war protest) this poster claims that browne should have stopped the suicide, and that i should have intervened.

while i appreciate my image being compared to a pulitzer winner, i think you're off. the two are similar in a not-at-all sort of way.

browne's photo brought world wide attention to the regime's policies, and ultimately led to its removal from power.

my help was uncalled for, and there were no injuries. and- yes, if necessary i would have bashed his head in with the back of the camera.

you sure are a sassy bunch!

You missed the bus COMPLETELY. I got one for you....go into a piss filled hallway in a project after one of these ANIMALS and corner them. One of the last things Im EVER gonna say to one of them is "gee could you please calm down so I can arrest you" Im GOING to do whatever it TAKES to get the mutt in a pair of cuffs. If they get a little bruised in the process BETTER THEM THAN ME.
Or better yet, after you have tossed this POS around for a while BECAUSE HE/SHE was RESISTING THE ARREST,try dragging them thru 50 to 100 of their dope smokin homies that wont let you OUT of the building. Be NICE to them? Whatta you out of your fucking mind? Yes the police are trained,but like was said THEY ARE DEALING WITH PRIMAL ANIMALS.The offender in the picture looked just fine to me.And NO Im NOT the Police either.Im wondering what YOU would have done aside from pissing yourself and frantically speed dialing 911........wait for it...............................
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING..

Lets see, an attendance pin comes out post haste, yet there have been guys who have been waiting YEARS for awards to no avail. What is going on here? I know a guy who got in a shooting a couple years ago, and is still waiting on a pin... but show up to work, and get a pin? Hmm. Where are the priorities?

Gee lets not forget the APPEARANCE AWARD. Just means mommy dressed them right that day. There was a day not too long ago,when you knew the WORKING POLICE by the torn ripped bloodied dirtied uniform that appeared at check off.Now, if you break a fucking nail doing the paperwork shuffle you get to go I.O.D.Unfucking real. Somewhere,in a dark dusty closet in some basement of some closed police station rests upon a shelf THE BALLS OF THIS DEPARTMENT.

She wasn't a foreigner. She spoke perfect English with no acent at all. Actually she was rather yuppie sounding. Very pompous.

Sounds like she was a libtard herself.

Asians ought to be natural GOPers, but for whatever reason, almost all of them end up being self-absorbed, narcissistic libtards.

Go figure.

I like the part were the reporter says the fine citizen only struck and kicked the offender to CALM HIM DOWN!

Now if a Police Officer did the exact same thing under the exact same circumstances, the media would want that Officer strung up with barbed wire.

And you are still a PUSSY! This incident and the incident of the monk in South Vietnam are apples and oranges. Face it, punk, YOU STOOD BY AND DID NOTHING! I hope to hell when its you or one of your family members turn to be the victim, someone repays your karma and stands idly by with thumb in ass and DOES NOTHING! “my help was uncalled for”… whatever makes you sleep better, bitch.

The cops, if I recall, saved someone’s life... What do you do? Stand by and take pictures while the world, and unfortunately, the bad shit in it goes on around you. Face it, YOU DO NOTHING! The other gentlemen involved at the very least, reached down between their legs, manned up, and DID SOMETHING. They grabbed a bad guy who stole something from an innocent person.

You took pictures.

WOW, Hold the fuck on, everyone! From here on out, that day will be forever known as Mike Anzaldi Day. Front page of the Trib and Times. Fuck that; TIME Magazine! LIFE Magazine! We will have a parade just for you! All for the guy who stood by and DID NOTHING but take pictures. WOW! You’re my hero! Sleep well, freelance jagoff, sleep well!

to the guy in 021. dont blame the victim when they have to wait for 4 to 6 hours for the Dick's to talk with them...


Det.'s aren't sitting around waiting for the phone to ring hoping you've got work for them. Those case reports you made get assigned and are followed up. Hunting down the unlisted witnesses and checking out their stories part of their job.

Having the witnesses and victims wait around for an hour or two is nothing considering we want to lock the guy up for years. We have less than 48 hours to straighten out any mess, whether it is from the police, offender, victim, asa, etc. Det's don't have magic pixie dust.

And future victim? Yeah, if the board here is representative of the CPD in general. Let's hope there are still cops who are putting in more than minimal effort.

No we all pretty much feel the same. Good Luck Future VICTIM!!!

and you,like YOU said, are still nothing more than A JAGOFF WITH A CAMERA. I could pick more colorfully descriptive words to define you but Im SURE SCC wont publish such VILE ABUSIVE PROFANITY. And, RIGHTFULLY SO,the Membership SHOULD hate spineless,yellow,bottomfeeding,self aggrandizing,shiftless,worthless,wiggly eyed criminal pukes such as yourself. (and Im being NICE about it here)

JAGOFF.

In all fairness, the photographer could have been injured in this incident. It is quite possible that he could have chipped a nail snapping those photos.
