What Were They Thinking?

You know the cameras are there. You see the gathering crowd of shithead gang bangers. And you keep the doors open so they can film someone in your back seat?
  • At least two Chicago police officers have been stripped of their police powers and placed on desk duty after a videotape was made public in which the officers stood by as a crowd taunted a youth sitting in a squad car, the department said today.

    The police internal affairs division is investigating the incident, the department said. Police would not say how many officers were suspended pending the investigation, but two uniformed officers can be seen in the video, which appeared to be shot by a cell phone camera.

There's a video link at the story. We aren't going to embed it because is has a bunch of liberal claptrap at the beginning and the eggheads are speculating on all sorts of nonsense. But once again, this appears to be a number of preventable missteps that can be completely misconstrued to fit some liberal fantasy of misconduct. But no one was hurt except for some gang banger's feelings. Close the squad car doors and there's no story here.

I just didn't see the point. Once the cell phone camera is out, joke's over. Close the doors and it's either 19K or 19P, but either way, it's time to get the fuck out of there.

Yeah, I saw the tape and I can't imagine what the officers were thinking. Search and secure your prisoner in the vehicle, close and lock the doors, and go about your business.

Ain't life hard enough already? What if the kid bolts out the off side and gets hits by a car while you're directing home movies? You want to fall down and get hurt chasing him, take another pair of pants out on some wire fence? What if one of the other bangers there attacks the prisoner? What -- are you trying to attract an even bigger crowd on the block and have things get out of hand?

Geez -- and the discussion here is about "liability." What a can of worms here.

No lesson being taught to the crowd of laughing bangers outside the car -- at least no lesson anybody's being paid to teach, not at these risks.

Beats me. How the hell do you explain this if it goes bad?

I guess it went bad, huh?

I watched the video and honestly I couldn't see a problem. Now mind you, I'm NOT a liberal so maybe I couldn't see what these feckin libturds THOUGHT they saw.

I wasn't there, so I DON'T know the circumstances.
I won't even begin to speculate like these jagbags are doing.

All I know is that the city is going to hell in a handbasket with these bloody gangbangers!

And to strip these officers??? FOR WHAT???!!!

If this isn't the most insane bullshit...this should never...and I mean never have seen the light of day!!

You know what you feckin liberals...keep up with this nonsense waste of time garbage and soon enough you won't have any police and the foxes ( gangbangers and shitheads) will be guarding the hen house/chicken coop!! Where will you been then eh? I'll tell you where...screaming for the police that you got rid of!

These shite liberal ass wipes are what's ruining this once grand department and city!!

I wish the officers involved in this bs all the best and pray that they will be reinstated asap!

signed a citizen who can still tell the difference between bullshit and reality!

Be Safe everyone and remember there is always a camera at every call.

The kid wasn't even handcuffed, maybe they were picking him up and saving him from being beat up. Let's not assume the p.o.'s are guilty of anything until their side of the story comes out.

What you idiots don't understand that it was no joke. The kid told the officers he lived there. When they went there it was an unusually warm day and all the jagoffs were out.It soon became apparant that he didn't live there. They were just doing a transport for another unit that had a disturbance.

I think people are missing the point. You have a group a gang bangers here who are out of control and the officers don't do anything? They don't tell them to step away from the squad. They don't tell them to move to the curb. They don't ask for a couple of assist cars (whether the District is in a RAP or Backlog Log is another story). What about officer safety for God's sake! These fools, on several occasions, are coming up from behind the officers . We are the police, we need to take control of the situation. Close the doors to the squad, ask for assist, get the fools back to the curb and if they don't listen, lock them up.

Ok so how long does it take to do a show up? Once someone said "that's him" as you allege, close the door, get your info from the "victims" and LEAVE!!!

This is nothing more than cocky officers who were abusing their authority because they can. That's the problem with police today - they have no idea now to CONTROL a scene. I am retired, but believe me, no one got that close to me on the street and when I got out of my car, they knew what I was going to do and did not just stand around acting a fool.

CONTROL the street. CONTROL every situation you are in. Let the gangbangers know it is our street and we call the shots. In this video, it was the gangbangers calling the shots.

I'm just glad neither of the officers were injured because they sure put themselves in a position for that to happen.

Don't know what the whole story is on this one, so I won't pass judgment. However, how about officer safety? Too many bangers surrounding these officers and coming too close to personal space for my liking. One too many times these bangers were right behind the male officer, within close proximity to his weapon as he was leaning into the vehicle.

There are reasons why there are rules about how things are done. Follow those rules and when the video gets released there will not be an issue.

I am disappointed that SSC is so critical of these officers including how this post is titled. Nobody knows what happened but in being so critical, its like your buying the story of the community activists that the kid was being dropped off in rival gang turf. Does everybody also realize that the stripped officers also turn to OUR blog- this blog- for support and encouragement in what looks to be become a long ordeal. I know both officers and they are very hard working. So let's show them some support. After all as we learned with Cozzi. it could be any one of us accused tommorow!

The "reporter" even says after the tape is over that the kid was not let out of the police car. To me it looks like a show up. The officers probably conducted a showup and for the safety of the suspect, he remained inside the police vehicle instead of being made to stand outside closer to the rivals.

I'm not quite certain why the liberal "reporters" weren't upset by the fact that gang members were threatening violence on another member of the human race.

Don't they care about that? The only problem they saw was in police procedure? Why isn't there a problem with the fact that that kid couldn't walk in a neighborhood without the fear of bodily harm or death?

Is that OK with you liberals? Or do you really think that those people are just "animals" defending their turf and acting out in the manner you believe is normal for them? You won't call them on it, though, because you are gutless and racist.

Liberals are the biggest racists of all time. They are the children of slave owners who work at keeping racism alive. They like to say things like, "persons of color" so that they can be "politically correct." Aren't they just really calling people "colored" when they do that? Just like your racist daddies did, right college boys?

They make me sick with their pansy limp wristed mannerisms and talk. They are born bitches. Those thugs know it, we know it, and most importantly, they know it. The thugs are just taking advantage of bitches and laughing.

Now go to your cocktail party and tell all the rest of your liberal pansy friends how you helped the colored people who were too stupid to help themselves. Whoops! You meant persons of color.

To It's not 1990 anymore and all the rest:
This type of thing was not acceptable then either. There were two incidents back in '91 or '92 where this type of thing happened. Several officers were implicated and a couple even got fired. Supposedly the ones that were fired were the wrong officers, and the actual officers involved ended up getting buried in desk jobs for the rest of their careers. Bottom line, this was a stupid move. Remember, there are cameras everywhere. There probably isn't a single instance during your tour of duty where you aren't on camera in one way or another. Be smart.

It makes no difference WHY the kid was in back of the squad car (whether he was being taught a "lesson", was there for a show-up, to scare him, etc) the point of the matter is that it was a very poor decision by pos to keep the door open once the recording started. Their poor judgement has led to their suspension. Is the suspension warranted?...probably...but for no more than a week or at least until this dies down. Simply put, these pos joined the group of other pos bringing a bad rap to the department. As if we needed any help.

I am shocked that you, THE POLICE, see nothing wrong with that video. Let's go over a few things so that you ROOKIES in your special phone call units might learn something here.

1. Officer Safety. How many times did each officer turn his/her back opening the officer up to either attack or exposing their weapon.

2. If it was a show-up since when do you walk up the offenders or victim to the squad and open the squad door and allow pictures/video?

3. If they were saving the kid from a beating why open the doors and sit there allowing threats to be made at the victim/shitbag without taking police action?

4. Yelling "KING LOVE" must be ok in 014 now. The officers didn't seem to mind.

5. Throwing up gang signs in front of the PO's. The po's did nothing.

6. The what if: the little shitbag/victim gets killed later that night. The PO's parading him around allowing video and pictures must of really helped the other shitbags ID who to kill later that night.

7. Obstruction of Traffic, mob action, assault or a reackless charge on at least one of the other shit bags walking the street acting like a shitbag would of been nice.



We could go on and on. Should these officers get fired? No, it's called a mistake.

The point is simple.... these officers left themselves open to a shit load of possible things that could of gone wrong and allowed numerous violations to go unpunished right in front of them.

Would any of you, in any situation, allow what happened to happen? That is your answer.

I wish the officers the best of luck and hope for us and themselves- they realize what they need to work on as PO's.

God Bless

3. If they were saving the kid from a beating why open the doors and sit there allowing threats to be made at the victim/shitbag without taking police action?

4. Yelling "KING LOVE" must be ok in 014 now. The officers didn't seem to mind.

5. Throwing up gang signs in front of the PO's. The po's did nothing.

6. The what if: the little shitbag/victim gets killed later that night. The PO's parading him around allowing video and pictures must of really helped the other shitbags ID who to kill later that night.

7. Obstruction of Traffic, mob action, assault or a reackless charge on at least one of the other shit bags walking the street acting like a shitbag would of been nice.



We could go on and on. Should these officers get fired? No, it's called a mistake.

The point is simple.... these officers left themselves open to a shit load of possible things that could of gone wrong and allowed numerous violations to go unpunished right in front of them.

Would any of you, in any situation, allow what happened to happen? That is your answer.

I wish the officers the best of luck and hope for us and themselves- they realize what they need to work on as PO's.

God Bless


FREE BILL!!!

Well said Officer. And spot on. There is alot wrong with this video. OFFICER SAFETY IS FIRST AND FOREMOST. Watching the video several times there were plenty of opportunity for these two Officer's to be injured or killed.

The playing field has changed. OLD SCHOOL is dead. Camera's abound, and making a stupid move like this, putting your yourself and your partner at risk for a show up is ridiculous. An old partner and old timer Vinnie M once said, don't worry you'll get him another time. He's was so right. THEY ARE NOT WORTH OUR JOBS OR OUR LIVES. Never let your EGO'S get in the way. Yes the old days and the war stories these young bucks heard made an impression. Someone forgot to tell them those days are LONG GONE, never to be seen again.

I don't believe they should be stripped either. I think she should be schooled a bit more on safety, simply shielding, distance, movement, never let anyone come up behind you, or that close to you or the squad. Gang signs thrown in my face as they are representing. MOB ACTION and extra units called in. These two Officers are lucky they got away without a scratch. The department will make sure they get beat up now unfortunately. Reprimand YES, Stripping NO!

Stay safe out there

Just another example of the new baseball cap wearing generation of police officers.

Stand around while a bunch of assholes act like a bunch of assholes.

BE THE FUCKING POLICE !!!!!

Tell those pieces of shit to beat it or call for a wagon.

This is what passes for police work these days.

Why don't we just call it natural selection. Would you want either one of these officers anywhere near a situation that you might be involved in?

I wouldn't.

With this piece of shit in the White House is now making it against the law to laugh. What the fuck is Hillard doing, He is falling back to his old mode of suspending officers before cause. If it was against the rules to laugh at assholes I would be doing life with no parole.

But it looked like cops who were encouraging Latin Kings to get crazy rowdy, which seemed like a really dumb idea. I don't understand what the officers had in mind. Whatever it was, they failed badly - losing control of a situation to a bunch of jeering gang-bangers.

I lived near North Ave. & Humboldt Blvd for 7 years and never saw anything like this. It's not typical. I believe you that it happens, but when officers encourage it to happen and suggest that it's the behavior they condone, that's a problem.

No. It seemed pretty horrendous. Somehow, I don't think that's going to change your misperception of liberals, but it's worth saying. Yeah, the behavior of the gangbangers was incredibly bad, while the police action seemed merely unprofessional and showing poor judgment.

Is a DC as far as you've gotten in the ILCS?

Yeah. I " arm chair quarterback" I think you mean "Monday morning quarterback." I do so to maybe open the eyes of these "salty" coppers who think they know everything really haven't seen shit on this job.

There's no misperception of liberals at all. Most are good hearted but with no plan to change anything.
They don't really understand that some problems don't have easy solutions. They want to live in a world where all people are like them; good natured at heart. That's not true. There is evil in this world.

The rest are devious and evil and want nothing more than to see this country turned into a totalitarian socialist dictatorship with them, as the intellectual elite, in control. They use the above.

Sorry, but if you read your history, you'll find it's quite true.

Somebody above me wrote that liberals wouldn't care about the behavior of the gang-bangers, and would think that the truly horrible thing here was what the cops did. That's a misperception. You have a wider anger about other things that you accuse liberals of. Whatever. It's not worth disputing your argument, which isn't really susceptible to factual proof one way or the other.

But the post I responded to was definitely a misperception.

Everybody is touchy about the two liberal turds and the "local." They are trying to portray this as an institutional practice when what they are claiming is an institutional practice is not even occurring on the video. This has caused, for some unknown reason, a fucking outrage leading these two to be stripped. I the video shows some shitty police work, and by shitty police work i mean letting all those walking turds surround you and representing the king nation.

These two brain dead coppers should probably be given some serious remedial training and put on a midnight desk or some gig so they don't hurt themselves and fucks up their live enough they fucked up. Stripping these two for this is pretty outrageous and the three liberal fuckheads pretending to know anything about police work, laws, or the police departments policies is laughable.
The fact that the department is know acknowledging and taking their input as if it means shit is the reason for the backlash against liberal fuckheads.
