Lies, Damn Lies, .....

  • Mack Julion has always been in love with Chicago. A Southwest Side resident, he swore he would never flee to the suburbs, playfully mocking friends as not being "real Chicagoans."

    But now, crime in his neighborhood and across the city has worn that devotion thin.

    [...] Julion's sense that Chicago's crime problem is growing worse is shared by nearly half of the city dwellers who responded to a new poll for Tribune/WGN. But the reality is that overall crime in Chicago is down when compared with last year and homicides are nearly flat, with no significant uptick compared with recent years.
"Overall crime" is a misleading statistic since upticks and surges in certain crimes mask declines in others. Batteries may be up while rapes and arsons are down. In fact, the Tribune cites these types of statistical shenanigans in the article:
  • Overall crime, including violent crimes such as criminal sexual assault and robbery, are down, according to official crime statistics through the end of June. For instance, shootings are down slightly compared with January through June of last year. The facts, however, have done little to prevent perception from becoming reality for people in all parts of the city.
  • Police statistics suggest it's getting increasingly dangerous on the street for officers. Nearly 3,160 officers reported they were victims of assault and battery in 2008, almost double the 1,583 officers who said they were attacked in 2003. About 35 percent of those officers in 2008 were injured, according to the department.
Almost double the number of officers attacked over a five year span, and that was two years ago. Yet "overall crime" is supposed to be down? We're supposed to believe that Chicago Police Officers are the only category of victims that has increased at a rate far outpacing society at large?

So it comes down to citizen perceptions? And who are you going to believe? The "statistics" released by a mayor desperate to prop up his reelection chances and the chances of his heirs? Or your own goddamn lying eyes?

How much has the Chicago Police Memorial Fund offered up to solve the three year old murder of our brother?


How does a CPD PO get murdered and then NOTHING!

When you have less officers, you have less of a response. Less self generated crime reporting statistics in the forms of proactive police work. Less officers to respond to calls for service. Higher response times. More frustration from the citizens to report crime and the citizens more likely to not report crime.

We are sure that Oakland is going to show a dramatic drop in crime next year after refusing to respond to certain calls for service. What a great way to kill crime.

The ISP bought this HOMICIDE:

A man's body was found in a burning car at an Illinois Secretary of State's driver's services facility on the Northwest Side on Tuesday morning.

The Chicago Fire Department was notified at 8:12 a.m. of a "person down" at the facility at 5401 N. Elston Ave., according to Fire Media Affairs spokesman Rich Rosado. After they arrived, it was determined the incident was a police matter and no hospital transports were made

Why isn't the FOP all over these attacks as a reason to end residency for police officers? We all have heard stories of officers being followed home, officers being threatened, and now officer Bailey is targeted in front of his own home?!! When was the last time a firefighter was followed home and attacked? How about a teacher, or a sewer worker? Residency for police is outright dangerous and it's only going to get worse. Hell, they target our homes to get our guns too.....Think they ever purposely targeted a fireman's home to steal a hose or hydrant key?

On another note we need to start putting pressure on the game companies that manufacture video games that promote killing cops. If you've been through Grossman's class you may remember the spike in violence in areas approx 15 yrs after they got television and then the video game spike also occurred 15yrs later. Well, the original Grand Theft Auto was released in 97....13 years ago. And what was it that the newspaper had for attacks on police SCC? Double from 03-08. Maybe Fr. Faker and Jessie Jackass should start a Sony and Microsoft boycott.

Of course, the assaults on the police are self-reported, so the same problem other comments have pointed to (i.e. Oakland crime dropping when nobody reports crime) could be working in reverse. Maybe in 2003 cops just didn't report the same activity as "assault."

Hiring more police and making more arrests is meaningless unless the State's Attorneys office and judges are on board .People need to realize that this is a big/huge/giant part of the problem.
And why is no one charged court costs ? I know that every time I have to go to 400 W Superior for a violation at my business(which is now happening 4-5 times a year after no violations for 25 years) I have to pay the fine and $40 in court costs. How much revenue could be generated if every misdemeanor arrest was charged $40.I think this used to be the system , but then no one came to court and led to more warrants , more holds and overcrowding at the jail. SO WHAT ! Isn't the jail underutilized now ?

If he was charged with Agg Bat, P.O. it is IMPOSSIBLE for him to get bonded at the station. He has to go before a judge for a bond hearing if charged with a felony. It is an "I-bond" bubba, not an eyebond. You don't make a promise that the Judge can take one of your eyes if you fail to appear at your next court date (although I like the idea). An I-bond is an acronym for a Personal Recognizance Bond. I got a feeling you have no idea what you're talking about.

This is the 2nd or 3rd comment in the last couple days regarding the FOP and residency. You couldn't be the police or you're a rookie cause the FOP can't do a damn thing about residency.

There is a state law that forbids city workers from moving outside the city. For us to get that lifted, we'd have to agree to giving up the 24 unpaid furlough days that the other city workers are losing, and even then we probably wouldn't get it.

Why don't you worry about more important things . . . like not being ambushed and shot!

What's really interesting on CBN is that, in the article posted at 6:20pm, it states that homicides are up "more than 5%". The article in this post was put up at 9:04 pm, and it states that homicides are up "less than 1%". The difference is that the first article takes their statistics from January through June, while the second article compares January through July.

Hmmm... looks like someone had to change things around to bring the stats down. J-Fled, is that you?

Each victim is associated to Aggravated battery with a firearm. Each gets counted when each name is listed in the report and associated to the proper classification. So until you get your Detective Supplementary Report Rejected for leaving all the victims associated with 041A when one was the victim of an Aggravated Assault 051A, you should just shut up and read the blog and continue to think you know everything.

Not exactly.

It is NOT state law that CPD officers must live within the limits of the city of Chicago.

It IS City ordinance and a condition of employment here with the CPD.

The state law part is in labor law that says that residency requirements are not subject to collective bargaining in Cities in Illinois over 1 million in population.

And the only one of those is, take a guess, CHICAGO!

So, unless the pertinent part of Illinois Labor Law can be changed or shitcanned we are fucked.

The City sponsored that little piece of legislation specifically to deal with this issue and then does the penguin salute and points to Illinois Labor Law.

The FOP has introduced legislation to rescind that offending statute any number of times. This might come as a shock but richardmdaley does not want that part of Illinois Labor Law changed and thus, it goes nowhere and never will unless we get an administration that consents to the law being changed.

Daley the criminal can't find money to hire 100 police officer but he can steal almost $69 million (690 police officers) from TIF funds to give to Willis tower to engage in various rehab projects and this includes $35 million (350 police officers) for United Airlines to relocate to Willis Towers.

This is exactly like some bustout dad who likes to go drinking or to the race track saying he doesn't have money to pay for rent or tuition and pulls an empty pocket inside out and says he is broke.

But the other pocket is full of real cash dollars he intends to spend on other stuff that he wants to spend it on and it's none of our business.

Attorney Jack George (of the law firm of DALEY & George, mayor daley's brother Michael Daley is the Daley in that name) has been pushing for up to $200 million of additional TIF funds to be spent on his client's building: Willis Towers.

Again, this is real actual tax money that has been put in that other pretend side pocket that we citizens and taxpayers and police officers are not supposed to know about or do anything about.

That's another $200 million dollars that brother Michael Daley's law firm is lobbying the city run by HIS BROTHER to spend on Willis towers.

Or put another way, that is an additional 2,000 police officers worth of cash that Michael Daley wants to spend of Chicago tax money on Willis Towers and not on hiring Chicago Police Officers.

Thank Ben Joravsky and Mick Dumke for doing the legwork on these facts and figures and the Chicago Reader for publishing them.

The I in I-Bond comes from Individual Recognizance Bond. The serial number on the bond slip began with the letter I. This distinguished it from the other two bond books in each station, the C-Bond which required all cash and the D-Bond which required 10% of the bond in cash. It wasn't unusual for those charged with felonies to bond out of the station. The D-Bond was the most common. Almost no one got an I-Bond. That changed. It's good to remember that the job didn't start when you arrived.

speaking of battery on the police, dude was charged with just that in 022 on monday afternoon, then the midnight wc gave him an eyebond. Not even a cash bond. How about at least putting him on the truck in the morning, if for no other reason than to fuck with him a bit. That sends a great message to the troops doesn't it?

Heard the bosses in 022 are absolutely horrible now. That place used to be the best place to work on the south side with some of the best bosses. What's going on over there?

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

The guy was charged with Agg Assault, class A misdemeanor, not Agg Battery to Police. He was not on bond for a class A misdemeanor or higher that he could be sent to court, hence the I Bond. Per the court bond book located by the Desk Sgt in every district, as well as the G.O. on processing arrestees, once identity is established by means of a fingerprint check, bond is required, barring extenuating circumstances, one of which is described above.

Also, the bosses in 022 are pretty good. There are a number of young PO's working on all of the watches who have never worked elsewhere, and don't appreciate how good they have it. Call the desk or stop in and ask some of the veteran officers, they will tell you. Too many young phone call officers there.

Is their any reason you're not covering the 2 p.o. 's that got fired last week, or the fact that they now filed a law suit against Weis and Daley?

What is the story behind this?

I ran a Clear report for code 9161 and the result was 9681 active officers

Minus, the officers on iod, med, furl, rdos, inside spots, like caps, front offices, desk crew, etc, etc, etc,; and how many are actually working?

This is the 2nd or 3rd comment in the last couple days regarding the FOP and residency. You couldn't be the police or you're a rookie cause the FOP can't do a damn thing about residency.

There is a state law that forbids city workers from moving outside the city. For us to get that lifted, we'd have to agree to giving up the 24 unpaid furlough days that the other city workers are losing, and even then we probably wouldn't get it.

Why don't you worry about more important things . . . like not being ambushed and shot!

7/21/2010 05:53:00 PM Left a comment and explained it perfectly so I won't repeat it. however your statement that we'd have to agree to unpaid furlough days makes absolutely no sense and is a stupid idea thought up by none other than yourself. When was this even mentioned by the city jackass? But lets say your stupid comment is right and we would have to agree to 24 unpaid days. Lets say my net pay for a month is $4,000. 1. I could work a side job on those days, or spend more time with my family, 2. I would save $9,000 per year on my two kids GRAMMAR SCHOOL tuition. 3. I'd save quite a bit on sales tax considering ours is the highest in the country, 4. I'd save roughly $300 per year on city stickers, 5. I'd have a real yard and a park district with a nice pool, nice fields, and other nice amenities. and 6. DICK WOULD NOT BE MY MAYOR. That said 24 days doesn't seem as bad as living in this shithole. And yes, I knew coming into this job 13 years ago that residency was a requirement but I didn't think it would be turning into Detroit South before I retired. Oh, and the last part of your comment just proves you are an ignorant asshat. GFY

Woah, hold on there Tipper Gore.

You really went there huh? I can't exactly remember where but number is a bit staggering when it comes to non-blacks playing GTA. I think the number is 87% of people who play GTA are non-black. So until White and Asian kids (or myself) go around attacking police officers. I'd hold back on your anti-video game agenda.

Mortal Kombat came out over 15 years ago too, should we go after them? Maybe kids will start ripping peoples hearts out and yelling "fatality" at the end.

Yeah, I think not.

Did you see Grossman's class "bulletproof mind"? Your ignorant comments alone show that either you did not see it, you paid no attention, or you are a dumb liberal. Glad you threw out the stats of who plays video games. How about this from Grossman's class, when we were little seatbelts and carseats were not necessary either and it didn't kill a lot of people my age so why start using them now? There is proof that extremely violent games "numb" the mind to killing in young kids and adolescents. Why am I wasting my time with this anyway, put your headset back on and keep playing Halo in your parents basement. Oops, I mean your apartment.

"What a great way to kill crime."

Speaking of killing crime, something CPD becomes increasingly adept at (e.g. one R.D. for multiple apartment burglaries in the same building), is it true that AIRA selects the UCR automatically, not necessarily following the hierarchy of offenses?

"The ISP bought this HOMICIDE:"

Yeah, but Cook County slithered out of the suicide at the juvenile center. The mope dove off of the building & CPD was forced to handle it.

Why do they even have police powers? Shouldn't they be justifying their existence?

Has anyone else wondered about this relatively new practice of having a long procession of police escorting a squadrol to the Medical Examiner's office?

No disrespect to our deceased officer(s) but wouldn't the ultimate respect be shown by being out beating the bushes for an offender(s)?

Isn't that what we do best? Looking for the bad guys?

A car in front, a car in back, lights and siren, the rest, get in on the hunt. Bag and tag those responsible. In my opinion.


Well, your opinion is stupid. How about that..This is what you worry about us taking 30 minutes to show our respect to a fallen officer. Get a fuckin life.

How much has the Chicago Police Memorial Fund offered up to solve the three year old murder of our brother?


How does a CPD PO get murdered and then NOTHING!
