Ah Summer

And seriously, it was a pleasant night last night. Not like at the end of a string of 90 degree days such as we might be experiencing shortly:
  • At least 14 people were shot in separate incidents around the city, beginning with a violent half hour on the South Side.

    Between 10:39 p.m. and 11:01 p.m. in the Back of the Yards and Englewood neighborhoods, five people were shot and taken to area hospitals, police said.

    At 1:40 a.m. in the South Shore neighborhood, a 45-year-old man was driving when he suffered a gunshot wound to his shoulder...

    [...] At 1:50 a.m., five people were shot--all in the same incident--in the Lawndale neighborhood.

    [...] In the Logan Square neighborhood, at least three people were shot near the intersection of North Springfield Avenue and North Harding Avenue...
So how is Rahm's plan of making sure the neighborhoods are as safe as the lakefront working out now? Seems like the citizens of the west and south sides were onto something when they complained that if it doesn't happen downtown, no one cares. In fact, we find ourselves not caring right now, but that might be because most of us are on furlough right now.

These are all lies. Rahm has put nearly 1,000 more officers on the street. It is impossible that this could take place with 1,000 more officers on the street.

Perhaps it's the heat making people see things that aren't there again, just like it did at the beach.

Now take a drink of this KoolAid. It's good for you.

You know, that's just another example of how Sarah Palin is out of control.

Maybe the black and brown children should never have had access to those government sponsored racist guns.

Hey, didn't Obama have the ATF send a couple of thousand guns down to the "brown people" in Mexico so they could kill each other and our border patrol agents? IS THAT THE GOVERNMENT SPONSORED RACISM YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT, ASSHAT?

What's the communist party answer? Do you need to consult Bill Ayers first to get his advice? We'll give you a little time to meet him at St. Sabina's with that fake ass communist priest you like to kiss ass to. Why don't you make it a multi faith effort and invite Jeremiah Wright?

Then you and Rahm and Ayers and Phake Phlager can all bad mouth America together with Wright. Hell, you may as well call Jesse Jackass and Farakhan in there too. You all hate America and its Constitution. You can have a little socialist suck off session.

Good news for all you tact wannabes. The word at 35th Mich is that the Supt is actually looking into the provision that the Il State Police used in reference to the goatee. They still look professional with their goatees, becuase they are trimmed mice and neat. Apparently, he believes it's time for officers to make their own decision on whether or not CPD needs to have that facial hair regulation. There are going to be a ton of officers voting in favor of the McCarthy-espque goatee. This should be in writing asap. Good job Boss!!!

And we're going to be a World Class city....
WGN Radio had a guest from some organization in Toronto, who gave her views about when Toronto hosted the G-8 Summit and described the 1,100 arrests for all sorts of crimes by the mob riots, fires, window smashing, looting, etc. even with their Nat'l Guard, & multi agencies working. They're still paying out to restore their downtown as the cost was in the millions.
They advised Chicagoans (CPD ?) to take their vacations during the time of the G8, and to avoid downtown & nearby (as a tourist destination).
So if at this time we can't find manpower to keep Downtown & beach areas safe from thug mobs, how in the world will we control outsider mobs with an entirely different agenda of civil disruption. This is a perfect opportunity for Chicago's very own to riot & loot like it was 1968 all over again.
No plans for Chicago to hire more police yet.

Intresting, the 007th District Commander is of the quantity over quality mindset with respect to arrest activity. This is the activity he prefers of his discretionary resources ( tactical teams and the like ) Yet, there is no positive effect on the crime conditions? Hmmm. When the area was saturated with resources from city wide units ( now decentralized) with a mandate of seeking impact type arrests over petty crimes, thier presence in the actionable zones reduced the occurance of violent acts. Here's the thing, the focus on quality of life issues does not work, it soaks up man power, that could be better utilized just being up, avaliable and roaming. A visual deterrant, with capibility of overwhelming response capability.

All of them will be jockeying to get time in front of the TV camera and they will be working the crowds of the GAY PRIDE PARADE.

How many of them went to the ST. JUDE PARADE?

Why?

Because the gay community votes and cops don't. The gay community can demand legislation and get while cops get their pensions slighted and get prosecuted and vilified because they vote and we don't.

If you don't vote, if you don't get your family and neighbors to vote you are part of the problem.

FROM IL STATE RIFLE ASSOC.

Fellow Law-Abiding Firearm Owners:

As many of you may already know, Chicago’s new police superintendant, Gerry McCarthy, recently delivered an address on the topic of gun control to the parishioners of Fr. Pfleger’s St. Sabina’s Church. For those of you who have not seen the video of McCarthy’s address, you may find it at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIX4j2sormY&feature=player_embedded

Certainly, none of us would expect McCarthy to discuss how traditional gun control policies seek to disarm law-abiding citizens while ignoring violent criminals. Likewise, we wouldn’t expect to hear McCarthy place the blame for violent crime on a justice system that woefully fails to apprehend, convict and rehabilitate society’s most dangerous elements. No, we’d never expect to hear McCarthy utter the truth about one of the most contentious issues of the day.

As much as we wouldn’t expect to hear McCarthy speak in opposition to gun control, it is equally certain that few of us were prepared to hear what actually came from McCarthy’s mouth when he spoke to the St. Sabina’s congregation. After several minutes of gratuitous self-promotion, McCarthy launched into a racially-charged tirade in which he accused the NRA and law-abiding gun owners of participating in a government-sponsored program to kill Black people.

Like most of you, we believe an assertion such as McCarthy’s is too nutty to dignify with a response. But listening to McCarthy’s rant causes us to pause and ponder the Chicago Police Department’s own record on race relations. Furthermore, given McCarthy’s background, would any of the readers venture a guess as to who McCarthy blames for crime and violence when he’s safe at home among his family and personal friends?

Gerry McCarthy’s verbal attack on law-abiding citizens serves as an affront to law-enforcement officers everywhere. But, then again, any suggestion that McCarthy is a law-enforcement officer is a sham. Rather, McCarthy is merely another in a long line of political hacks who have resided in the office of police superintendant. McCarthy’s job description has nothing to do with law-enforcement and everything to do with enforcing the political agenda of his boss, Rahm Emanuel. Of course, as we know, Emanuel’s agenda seeks the eventual prohibition of private firearm ownership.

Probably the most ironic thing about McCarthy’s speech to St. Sabina’s parishioners is that McCarthy delivered his address while standing only a few feet away from Rev. Mike Pfleger. Let us not forget that, a few years ago, Pfleger urged attendees at a gun control rally to go out and murder gun shop owners and politicians who vote against gun control laws.

McCarthy’s speech at St. Sabina’s is a mere preview of what law-abiding firearm owners can expect out of the Emanuel administration in the months ahead. Watch the video of McCarthy’s performance at St. Sabina’s and you will see what we’re up against. And, as always, we really need your financial support to help contain and defeat the Emanuel Gun Grabbing Machine. So, once you’ve watched the video, please make a generous donation to the ISRA so that Emanuel’s dream of a gun-free Illinois doesn’t wind up becoming your nightmare.

Also, please pass this alert on to your friends and relatives. Be sure to post this alert to any and all Internet blogs and bulletin boards to which you belong.

Remember, gun control is a disease and you are the cure.

Sincerely,

Richard A. Pearson
Executive Director
Illinois State Rifle Association

Dateline Philly:

Suspected flash mob rips off Upper Darby Sears

UPPER DARBY — A mob of about 40 people stormed into the Sears department store on 69th Street Thursday, and in a flash stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, officials said.

Police were able to round up 15 juveniles and one adult, 19, all from West Philadelphia.

“They came in on the El train and hit Sears,” police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. “They stole sneakers, socks, watches, whatever they could get their hands on, and left.

“Imagine the guts of this gang of young hoodlums. One was 11 years old. The others arrested ranged from 12 to 16 years old. They planned this out earlier in the day on a social networking site. It was pre-planned. They got on the El, got off at 69th Street Terminal and walked up the hill to Sears.”

[...]

According to the affidavit, the Sears loss-prevention officer saw the mob enter the store at 7:09 p.m. on Thursday.

The group then began taking merchandise off the shelves.

“He watched the group enter the store together from the 69th Street entrance,” Chitwood said. “It was fast. They ran out, leaving empty shoeboxes and store tags behind. Fortunately, no customers or store employees got hurt.

Five shot, then another five shot, and then three shot. Using Chicago Public School math and Chicago Police analysis, that is three shooting incidents or only three crimes.

Rahm will say they were not crimes at all but heat related injuries because they were caused by people who were packing heat.

G-Hack will blame the government sponsored racism that causes the black and brown children to be hurt. Isn't Obama the government? Never mind.

Were any of those guns from the ATF that were sent to "brown people" or are those just the federal gun laws G-Hack was talking about?

Completely off topic. I should have posted this days ago.

Tomorrow morning (Monday) at 1100 hrs there will be a cake and coffee for Fr. Nangle at 35th Street. He has always been there for us, it would be nice if the multi purpose room was packed for him. Big party in september, but this would be a nice way to say goodbye on his last day.

Hope to see you there!

Gay Pride Parade went up for grabs, Gay people went nuts, took over the streets! Police overwhelmed, just not enough manpower at this event. Very poorly planned, was dangerous and tense for a while. Bosses on scene initiated plan, calling on all citywide asking for more cars at Halsted and Belmont. If this happens for this event, what's going to happen when people from all over the world come here for the summit?

You folks got it all wrong about the 1,000 cops the Mayor has put on the street. Rahm has card board cut outs of Chicago cops and he is taping them to lamp post and fire hydrants so the public will feel safe. They even glow in the dark and have a little tape that says "move along". Enjoy.

Five Chicago police officers were injured as they broke up a large fight in the Little Village neighborhood on the West Side early this morning, police said.

Thirteen people were in custody in the fight, which took place a little before 4:30 a.m. in the 2800 block of West 25th Street, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Michael Sullivan.

The officers injured were all treated and released, police said; the most seriously injured had been hit over the head with a bottle.

Who else has a job where they go to work and get bottles smashed over their heads for breaking up fights. We deserve more MONEY$$$$

"All of them will be jockeying to get time in front of the TV camera and they will be working the crowds of the GAY PRIDE PARADE.

How many of them went to the ST. JUDE PARADE?

Why?

Because the gay community votes and cops don't."


Nah. The media is full of gays and the cops aren't.

Well, apart from that one heavily gay district in New York where Jersey "Chaps" McPander first practised his "i'm always available to pleasure the community i serve" policing program.

Seriously though the media decide what's important and what isn't because people vote based on a mixture of what they know about personally and what the media tell them. As what people know about personally is only maybe 10% of the total and the other 90% they get from the media then if the media say gay pride is important and wildings by honor yout aren't then the politicians will grovel at gay pride and stay silent about the honor yout.

A politician who didn't go to gay pride and made a speech about wildings instead would get hammered as a homophobicracistnazi and the public wouldn't vote for them...

I live in the area. Just a few years ago, I would bicycle along the lakefront from Chicago Ave. North up to Hollywood Ave. and then South to Promontory Park, South of McCormick Place and then back again a few times.

Now, I avoid the lakefront at all costs. I ride along interior streets and the park and I am eternally vigilent of everyone around me.

I avoid large crowds. Don't wear earbuds.

Yesterday, I rode North from Chicago Ave. up Wabash thru Lincoln Park (What a clustarfark that gay pride parade was. The CPD was indeed way under staffed) up the inner Lake Shore Dr. to Hollywood to Sheridan Road, to Lunt St, West to Kedzie, south to Devon, West to Pulaski, South to Chicago and East back to Wabash.

It was a great bicycle ride but I'd never do it without my 1911 and .380

Maybe the predator will get me before I can draw, if need be, but then again, maybe they won't or I take one of 'em with me.

I'm not gonna live in a cage in my own city.

I don't reccomend that route for you and your wife. Stay East of Clark, South of Hollywood, West of the Lakefront and North of Chestnut.

Sorry, but there were close to 3/4 of a million people there and I can tell you there just aren't that many gay people around. There were many, many straight people going nuts and taking over the streets, too. Trust me.

I don't know what happened to allow people to rush into the street 3/4 of the way through the parade, but it was very strange. Most of us assumed the parade was over until two officers on ATVs came through trying to clear people off the street and another group of floats showed up.

Also don't know what happened around Halsted & Belmont. We saw CPD swarm the area but couldn't see what--if anything--was happening. In general though, I think the police on scene did a good job, considering the size of the crowd they had to contend with.

OT: Why are many of cab drivers all of a sudden insisting I give 'em cash and discouraging use of credit/debit machines in their cabs? 5 of 6 cabs in past 3 days! Some type of scam?? One even yelled at me and told me "You are supposed to ask me when you first get in my cab if my machine is working". And guess what? When I didn't have cash, all of a sudden his machine did work.

AGAIN, Cab driver in gold coast last nite lied and said his machine wasn't working, then when I said I didn't have cash, he said it was working. I got out of his cab anyway and got a different one.

6/26/2011 04:34:00 PM

----------------------------------

Same thing happened to me on the NW side (Jefferson Pk) when I took a cab home from a local business (Edison Pk). The guy announced that his machine wasn't working the minute I got into the cab. Fortunately I wasn't going too far and had cash to cover the ride.

Tips that aren't documented can be watered down for tax purposes. That's my guess anyway for why the machines don't work.

In 2007, my husband was shot in the line of duty. Today was the first day of his trial the People vs. Bobby Selvie. At 12:45 pm I turned at looked back in the court room and saw only one Police Officer, our good friend Tom McDonagh. I thank all of our good friends that came and showed support but by 12 45 the courtroom was completely empty and it was scary. Scary to know that this defendent already thinks he is calling the shots, not taking deals offered to him, scary to think that the police don't come out in force to say, Heh this is enough. If you are in court tomorrow, please come to room 602. Don't come for me, don't even come for Pat, come to show bad guys that they don't run the show, they don't call the shots, they can't continue to get away with shooting the police

If Chicago Police Officers voted as much as they texted, complained and responded to this blog we would be a real force that could not be ignored. Instead we complain about the FOP, complain about our mayor and elected officals but never exercise our right to vote. I think in order to complain about a situation created by an elected official you need to prove that you voted, if not, then shut the fuck up because complaining will get you nowhere but voting and complaining will get you everything just look at who these assholes are listening to, can you hear me now.
