Oh My Baby!

  • Chicago police shot and killed a 15-year-old boy after he pointed a gun at officers who were investigating a robbery in the South Shore neighborhood, authorities said.

    The suspect was identified as Tatioun Williams of the 1300 block of East 69th Street, according to police and the medical examiner's office.

    "They (are) lying. My son would never carry a gun," said his distraught motheer, Lois Pickett. "He ain't never done that, they can't say that."

    "The police officers killed him!" she cried in a telephone interview with the Tribune. Tatioun was the oldest of five siblings.

    "Yes, he has (previous arrests), but that's not a reason to kill him," Pickett said between tearful sobs. "That's no reason to kill a child."

    "They could have taken him to jail, they could have done anything but taken his life."

Blah blah blah. Police planted the gun, police shot him for no reason, police are lying for no reason, he was just about to turn his life around, he wanted to rap and play basketball, he almost got a "C-" on that last exam, yap yap yap.

We're sure he was out looking for good deeds to perform after 8 PM on a school night when those darn police somehow found a gun, a wallet, an i-Pod and an insatiable appetite for blood, located his previously arrested ass and shot him for shits and giggles.

Give us a fucking break Tribune. How about investigating what his other arrests were for? Where he got a gun? What sort of student he was? What kind of parent momma was? We suppose she would have been ecstatic if her child managed to actually kill a cop.

Fuck this ignorant ghetto breeder. If she had done her job as a parent, her 15 year old shithead son, who's already been arrested multiple times, would have been at home doing his homework, not out on the street with a gun doing armed robberies and pointing the gun at cops.

This little asshole got exactly what he deserved and momma should STFU. And shame on the Tribune for even writing this stupid story.

I happened to get into a conversation from a dear friend and her boyfriend (he is from Holland)..... He asked me why don't we shoot to wound???? I simply looked at him, who is a Chicago resident and said, "do you think they shoot to wound??"..... "We are clearly taught to shoot to incapacitate". He didn't get it..... Then I said...... "Do you expect to come home every day from work? Do you think others in your building are going to fling stapler guns at your head for NO REASON other then, that they feel like it? " I then asked him, "Do you want to go home to your only child everynight? Does your child want you home, knowing your are doing the most dangerous job in the city? AND no one gives a shit about you, and if you come home other then your family?"....... Being from Holland and their arrogance he was TONGUE TIED.... GAME ON!!!!! He shut the hell up, and I think I might have converted a European!!!!

Screw the liberal fucks that think we should just shoot them in the arm, they don't get that we have to shoot them in the head, bury the head with garlic stuffed down their necks a mile away from the body inorder to incapacitate them!!!!!! Gawd, when is the world going to wake up!!!!

SCC,

I think the story was fair. You're being a bit oversensitive about this.

It mentions the armed robbery victim, the gun, the IPOD and the dearly departed pointing said gun at the Sergeants.

Momma said her son was good and the nasty police shouldn't have killed him. That's not exactly a new storyline.

Now if she had said her son was a deviant piece of shit who was a danger to his neighbors and family THAT would be a bigger story.

It's also a hell of a lot closer to the truth than what she said.

Here's a suggestion to save the Tribune some money. Rather than send out a reporter, simply distribute "Ghetto Shooting" forms where the Baby Mama/Daddy fills in the blanks! For example:

"The Police shot my Boy ______ for no reason. He never carries a knife/gun (circle one) and was an Honor Roll Student at _______. He has been arrested _______ times for Robbery/Assault/Murder/Weapons Violation/Parole Violation/Rape/Burglary (circle one) but was turning his life around, and didn't deserve to die like a Dog".

With this money saving tip, maybe the papers would be able to send reporters to check out rumors of Wilding on Michigan Avenue!

Although it is an unfortunate event, these "events" happen too often and the media is afraid to question "the other side" as you did in your commentary.

People who live WAY out in the suburbs or on the North Shore have no clue as to what these neighborhoods breed and encompass.

The closest "taste" is when they might come in contact with a small sample of it at either an event like the "Taste of Chicago" or more recently, the wilding incidents on North Michigan that the media is afraid to talk about.

It is another world with an indignant attitude and set of warped values.

Those who are naive about it have no right to judge those who have to be immersed in the middle of it to try to keep civilized
order.

Hopefully this little miscreant hasn't had a chance to sucessfully replicate err, spawn uhhh, reproduce... If he didn't, it's a bigger win for society as a whole than originally thought.

That's the truth and you know it...

...We're literally in the midst of a Civil War on these streets.

Keep killing them with all due malice and prejudice until they finally realize we mean business when it comes to our survival.

Though there are powers that wish we would just "shut up that noise," bravely take the bullet and die quietly so they can speechify, pontificate and wipe false tears for bright TV lights.

They cheered when the big-head former fed made it widely known that he had malicious and vengeful intent toward The Police.

Our very reasonable & common sense overall response of going into deep survival mode denied him of the willing sacrifices he was looking for, thus he was truly angered and went out of his way to hurt Policemen on a pretext. The exempts nodded in agreement. (You traitorous dogs.)

Dude on the corner took this as a sign that they could "take it to the Police" without any repercussions. This was wholly encouraged by the majority of the public, the media, the politicians (including the former and current mayoral administrations) while no one in the Department hierarchy found it within themselves to vigorously denounce what was occurring. Their inaction and silence played a big part in a lot of new stars hanging on the wall at 3510.

The actions we take are very much needed yet the public, the media, the politicians (yes, up to and including the mayor) and even our Department hierarchy thinks we're the enemy. So much of their actions and word play indicates a deeply held desire for us to just be quiet, hold still, stop making so much noise about the corruption of the status quo. We're hated and reviled for our refusal to go along with the ongoing massive orchestration of public deception.

The public unwittingly will pay a price for the politics and game playing we try so hard to expose.

They smugly call it "complaining."

They don't realize they're literally the guests of honor at their own funeral if not for our "complaining."

We realize that there are precious few people in this city understand and actually "get" what we've been yelling about for years.

Our struggle is for them... Our struggle is for our families and friends and believe it or not; our struggle is for each other. All others can go to Hell and the Devil.

Choke on your false notion of Police being out of control for rejecting the downcast eyes and servile posture of de facto indentured servitude. "Humble public servants" does not fit what the Men and Women of CPD endure and do.

We're not here to please and serve men and their whims.

We serve and put it all on the line for the constants.(and all that implies) Not the everchanging variables. Got it?

Heroes is more appropriate.

This city tries very hard to prove itself unworthy of past, current and future sacrifices of blood, sweat, tears of outrage, broken bodies, broken hearts and wounded spirits.

The Policeman has become disposable it seems... To this we can attest, swear and aver.

Stay safe all.

Verily and Amen...

From a non officer. I was taught at an early age, that when a cop tells you to stop, do it. Don't goof around or argue. It something that thee lunkheads can't grasp. Years ago I had a suburban cop train a gun on me, mistaken identidy, at a 7-11. Trust me, I froze in my tracks and listened very carefully what he had to say. Until the store clerk confirmed that I was not robbing the store. All I can think to this day, is one stupid move and I would have had a hole in my chest. And thank god he was jumpy either.

Let's just take the scenario piece by piece:

You are heading to the scene where you KNOW the offender has a gun, and is brazen enough to point it at someone in an attempt to gain property.

You see the offender running and tell him to stop.

He points a gun at you, and you know his motivation is not to gain property! You know his motivation can only be that he wants to stop you from catching him! He can only do that in one way! That is to shoot you!

You must protect yourself, not only for yourself, but for your innocent, well-behaved family, who is waiting for you to coach the baseball game tomorrow, etc.

How long do you wait to see if he shoots first? Do you have time to lign up the sights? Do you only have time to point the gun in the direction of the OFFENDER who is trying to kill you? You have never committed a violent act against a person in your life. You are now forced to protect your life by shooting a human being. Your hands are shaking, and your heart is racing!

WOW!!! All that in the seconds that you have to decide to live or chance dying!!!

Not to mention the fact, that even sharp shooters usually have time to set their sights and aim carefully, and still miss their target point! Even if we were taught to shoot to injure, the public could not afford the ammunition to train all the officers to attempt to be sharp shooters!

Wake up people! Wake up media! Wake up ghetto parents! You want your children safe? Teach them to live safe!!!!

Police officers who work for the Illinois State Police, Department of Natural Resources, and the Secretary of State are drastically affected by this bill. Current employee contribution rates will double and can be increased further every 3 years under this legislation.

We are very concerned for all members because the House Pension Committee Chairman, Representative Kevin McCarthy has been was recently asked about police, fire, and IMRF employees being excluded from the current bill, "Those workers can be addressed in a separate bill next year."

Being a recent reader of SCC, I wondered why the term "Hair Gel" came to be so prevalent. Then the other day I watched five young POs leaving court because their case (for which they had been notified) had been continued... four of the five had their hair spiked up with gel...only the bald guy didn't.
Made me think of SCC and smile.

WHOA! Hold on there Tiger.

First off, overkill isn't necessary.

Second, taking someones life is not a first, or simple choice. We're trained to do so as a last resort. Someone pointing a gun at us IS a last resort, however.

Third, if its necessary to take a life, thats one thing, but you can assume you will be sued, will face INCREDIBLE scrutiny, accusations and second guessing of your actions and probably do a lot of your own soul searching about the incident. It is not a choice to be taken lightly.

And finally, if we're lucky, most of us get by without shooting ANYONE during our entire career. That should be the goal for us all, since we don't know how a shooting will effect US.

One officer in my academy class shot and killed an armed robber who tried to rob her in her apartment complex parking lot. Clean shooting and there was a crime pattern on the bad guy. She got the award of valor, and probably could have had a very successful career based on this one heroic act. Instead, she was so devastated by the incident that she resigned before even finishing probation.

I actually met the young at his high school. He had just finished reading " A Brief History of Time". His insight of Hawking's work was brilliant as it was profound. He was even able to explain it to me in a way that I could understand. I would have liked to have chatted more with this remarkable young man, but he had a prior commitment at his church's soup kitchen where he volunteered 3 times a week.

The bad guy is gone and the police were unharmed. Sounds like a good outcome to me. The only regrettable part of this story was the trauma suffered by the police officer. He did what needed to be done and society is better off.

As for mama, she's a loser and so was her ill begotten son.

First let me say, I hate the media. But the Tribune did nothing wrong here. The facts are the police shot and killed a 15 year old during a Robbery call. His mother agreed to talk to the Tribune. The Tribune printed quotes from the mother. No member of the department will stand in front of the media and dispute the mother's claims. The department will not say the 15 year old was arrested "X" amount of times, and list the offenses. Who cares if he's a juvenile, he's dead so you can't ruin his reputation. His arrest history will be a matter of public record if a law suit is filed. If you are writing a story and only one side gives you something to print, you print what you have. Be angry with the department.

Any time a Mother loses a Son it has to qualify as a tragedy, B.U.T. when your grief is channeled into nothing more than a template for profit you are truly a hideous excuse for a human being. Unfortunately the Black Community seems to bear the brunt of this and the need to consructively address this is long overdue. You'd think with an individual in the White House of color maybe it would be a turning point, instead it has just made the entitlement mentality explode. If this happens on a 90 degree summer night the city could burn and it will. Its a sad commentary that a certain community resorts to grief as its only growth industry. Thank God our guys are OK.

I think the most irresponsible part of this reporting is the Officer safety issue. These kinds of articles that play the harp to these fallen dirtbags discredits the good work that is done. Even worse, it continues to incite crowds of ignorant people against us, making them believe the police will kill you for no reason. It continually puts us in more danger as we the good guys keep getting our roles reversed as the dirtbags. Then, these same newspapers that put is in continual danger, hypocritically place on the front cover the picture of a fallen officer when it happens. I say that newspapers that are always putting us in a bad light, should be publicly condemned when they cover a fallen officer by the FOP or anyone who can for their hypocracy.

I saw this posted elsewhere on this blog and think it is appropriate: Mcpuppet should be the official Second City Cop name for the new supe.

If you need more proof than the fact that he met with that shithead pfleger, you are nuts.

That and the fact that redeploying police was 'Rahm's plan.'


I'm sure Mcpuppet was told what time of day it was by Rahm. There's no way the micromanaging ballerino would let the supe define policy, let alone implement it, without his direction and approval.

You're all suckers if you think things will be different this time around. I wish I had some faith left in me, but the last guy crushed it right out of me.

Please do not do any proactive policing. Protect yourselves and your family's assets from being turned over to some shithead.

Putting that many coppers into that limited amount of districts is going to be a disaster when there are not enough cars or radios.

Coppers are already riding 3 deep in some of those districts.

How is this guy's hasty first move any different than the mass dump jfled did on the commanders?

He didn't take the time to make a thoughtful decision. He shot from the hip without taking aim.

I think the felony murder rule is actually one of if not the best law on the damn books. It is one sweet bitch for the thugs in the hood. Two little jagoffs no longer on the street.

12 DISTRICT
ALL STAR REPORT

011 DISTRICT HAD A HORRENDOUS POLICE SHOOTING LAST NIGHT USING CLOSE TO 100 OFFICERS AND GUESS WHAT HAPPENS.

SOME PISS ANT 12 DISTRICT DWEEB CALLS FOR A UNIT FROM 011 TO DO AN ACCIDENT REPORT ON WESTERN BECAUSE IT WAS ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE STREET.

SO IN PASSING CAN THE SGT'S IN 012 START TO USE THEIR BRAINS AND NOT WORRY ABOUT WHAT'S AT POMPEIS WHEN IT CLOSES.

Well Im sure the guy from 012 had no idea this was going on in 011 since they do not share zones nor did the dispatcher say anything about a police chase/shooting in 011. Officers in 012 handled the accident. Before you start using all caps. Did you see the officers complaining? Initial radio transmission that I heard was the officer call for 011 but then said they were going to stay there to help out with traffic control. They did not pitch a bitch about it when they found out what was going on over the air. In matter of fact they gave a 011 district unit a disregard when one came up. Im sure it was a mistake. You need to relax with the all caps.

I do that for all junk mail, but first I tear up the contents and put them in the envelope as an "up yours". Not only do the companies have to pay, but it helps keep the post office afloat without taxing us more. I wish everyone would send the stuff back like that. I asked a postal employee about the brick idea awhile back and was told that they wouldn't send it.

Then slant the story to correctly reflect the truth Ms/Mr. Smart Ass Reporter. Do YOUR job. His criminal history is public record. Tell Mama's side and then make a liar out of her. Some woman falls in a fucking pond in a mall and in fifteen minutes HER past criminal history was all over the news. So it's the CPD's fault for not printing the other side? Who do you think you're shitting? You people blow both ways and you know it.

If a fifteen year old honor student pulls the trigger on a weapon, does the weapon discharge and the round strike the victim? So it's still a deadly weapon, no matter who holds it? Is one who is unarmed less likely to be shot then someone else who points deadly weapons at police officers? Is one who does not commit armed robberies lless likely to face armed police officers than one who does? I meet at least six patrolman a day working two jobs, not one fired a shot....but then I'm not an honor student, "fitting" to turn my life around. What time is Father Pfleger going to hold his "Don't Commit Armed Robberies Nor Point Deadly Weapons at Police Officers" march?

To Anonymous who suggested I take my friend from Holland to Headquarters is a brilliant idea!!! Maybe it will hit home then!!!

To the other poster that asked about crime in Holland, well since they legalized drugs and have drug dens over there for any sort of narcotic the only problem they have there is JIHADIST'S!!! I brought that up and asked him how that was working out for Holland???? He again fell silent. I said there is no difference between the cell's in Holland full of Muslim extremists that have taken over Holland and the gangbanging savages that have taken over our cities...... SILENCE...... MORE SILENCE.....

I doubt he will bring this subject up with me again. But if he does I will direct him over to this site since he lives in a bubble in his computer world. I might offer him up to a friend or two to take for a ride along on the west or southside and have them check if he has skidmarks in his gucci man panties!!

The point is that the Chicago media does not tell the truth anymore. They slant everything to reflect their view of political correctness. These liberal views are corrupting our city, county and country. The owners and employees of the dying "main stream media" should be forced to live with the people that they are promoting. Then and only then, the truth will be told.

Dear AnonyMOUSE.......

WE can't stand infront of the media..... There is not one Officer other then is allowed...... Have you not noticed there on a simple minded show like COPS, that shows you "what not to do" that CPD is not featured???? It is in our GO's that we do not speak out, to media, on camera etc............

Smart move I believe. USUALLY the truth comes out in the end. And Dave Snethen aka Dirty Harry said, if the "child" had a gun he is no longer a child he is an active offender that pointed a gun at an Officer, he is dust in the wind. Tooooooooo many lost on CPD. He no longer was a 15 year old he was an Offender.........

Let the news say what they want until someone leaks his fucking record to a good reporter that shows he is an animal by the age of 15.......... He was on his way to being an Officer Strouse, ET Flisk MURDERER!!!! Fill in the blanks, there are so many MURDERED since I got on!
