Citizen Calls BS on City Reports

An almost lone voice, but a refreshing turn of events:
  • A Chicago woman who played witness to a beach melee on Memorial Day weekend wants Chicago police and officials to come clean about what happened along the lakefront in May.

    On May 30, city officials closed North Avenue Beach because of excessive heat, but Amy Schwartz says no one is talking about the excessive violence that prompted her to call 911 that day.

    "There's a fight breaking out on the beach because there's nothing but animals covering this beach today," Schwarz phoned into the police. "What the hell is going on.

    Schwartz said she was walking from Oak Street Beach toward North Avenue Beach on Memorial Day when she witnessed a woman being beaten by a gang of people on the beach.

Once again, a case of "Who are you going to believe - the authorities or your own goddamn lying eyes?" In the case of Ms. Schwartz, she appears to be believing her own lying eyes and not the smoke, mirrors, lies and obfuscation put out by the politicos and talking heads.

Where there's one, there are others. Many others in this case.

Thank you, Ms Schwartz for having the courage to go on tv and stand by your truthful statements. I am also sorry that you had to witness such savagery on your holiday, and that there were too few police to prevent this incident from happening. The lies will continue until regular tax-paying citizens like yourself speak out against the smoke and mirrors that are placing good people in jeopardy everyday. Thank you.

They know, but they won't say. They have been conditioned by this socialist state to keep quiet and sing the party song.

No more. There is no reason that packs of barbaric savages should take over beaches that decent families use. Where are the leaders? Is this what you voted for?

Call bullshit when you see it and don't let those entitled, better-than-thou assholes outright lie to you. Call them on their bullshit and demand to get what you are paying for in taxes.

Why should your police be sent to the non tax paying districts and the parks and beaches become unusable by decent people and their families?

CALL THEM ON THEIR BULLSHIT EVERY TIME!

I like reading some of the comments on that story from defenders of the usual suspects. "It's not a hate crime when it's black on white, it's a crime of opportunity." This one-sided argument is so typical. What will they call it when I, as a law-abiding citizen, exercise my God-given right to defend myself and kill one of these shitbags trying to harm myself or my family? What will it be then?

A crime most likely.

OT: Tell your buds in 016 to stop giving out tickets to dog walkers at Olympia Park; we pay taxes, we don't need to be threatened by a $300 ticket going into the City's coffers for having a dog under voice control 5' away with leash in hand.

FYI, North Ave was not closed because of the heat: It was closed because there was some sand found near the water and that could be dangerous to all!

That last part seems as plausible as the "public health" reason given my McCracky and Mayor Yubitsume.

Geez. "Animals" is about behavior. Pink, purple or green, people acting like animals can and should be reported.

As for the lying: Attention city authorities, if you're reading this, please pay close attention. (Newspapers, also pay close attention and do your job instead of enabling.) Lying is not justified even in the name of our supposed well-being. Lying is not making us any safer. This is a representative republic based on democracy, not an absolute monarchy. The citizens are supposed to be trusted to know the truth so we can direct our representatives as to what to do about it. Because obviously they are not doing what they should be doing. But first you have to stop the pretending. Or we will have to throw your a***s out.

My girlfriend is fairly liberal as am I. There's one difference though. She's not from Chicago and I was born and raised here. When this wilding shit started I warned her to be careful when she went to work. I know what the deal is in this town. She would have none of it. I was being racist she said. I said I was being honest.

Since then she's seen the news and the roving packs. She wont take the red line, hates downtown, carries the pepper spray I got her, and we're thinking about getting a gun.

It's not racist to tell the truth about what's going on. It's life. If people want to keep their heads in the sand then whatever. They were warned.

OT:
LAST Saturday, Opposition Leader Tony Abbott indicated at the federal Liberal Party council that he was embracing multiculturalism. Meanwhile, last week the Dutch government joined German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy in rejecting multiculturalism.
A new Integration, Bonding and Citizenship Bill introduced by the centre-right Dutch government declares The Netherlands "steps away from the model of a multicultural society".

The legislation halts special subsidies to ethnic groups and will allow for the revocation of visas for immigrants who refuse to learn Dutch. It even slashes welfare benefits for those whose "actual chances of obtaining employment [are] hindered by their behaviour or clothing".

At least other countries are starting to understand

I went running on the lakefront last night around 11pm from Division St north. No headphones and I was very aware of my surroundings. I first encountered a sizeable group of bike mounted officers passing me going south. They were trying to get the few people that were hanging out along the path to move along. I also encountered a Tahoe along the path. I enjoy the police presence.

When I got to the chess pavilion, I encountered a few shitbags right out of the "thugs 'r us" catalog. The "spokesperson" of the group called out to me, "Hey, mister. Are the po-leeze messin' wit choo, too?" These shitbags know the score. I just hope that the vast majority of the hardworking, taxpaying citizens know the score, too. Heat, my ass.

I read that too. She called them animals because of the way that they acted. Defacating on the grass? Who does that besides animals like dogs and horses and every other member of the animal kingdom? They are animals based upon their actions, not their color. I sent a response to the times making this same point. Guess what? Not published. There's a shocker.

The last thing the city needs is to have roaming caravans of "honor role students" wondering aimlessly and falling down on the streets.

Expect chaos. Loaded guns and open fire hydrants. Clogged streets with overheated cars and traffic jams. Comm ed transformers popping and power outages.

Basically a prelude to the NATO and G-8 summit to be held here next year.

Multiculturalism is just insane. If you replace the culture of the country with something else it becomes a different place. Germany is Germany because it is where German’s live and the people behave like Germans.

The United States has a culture too and most of us are quite proud of it. If you want to live here and reject our culture that’s your decision but don’t be surprised if your conduct results in uncomfortable social interactions.

As a free society no one is compelled to adopt any culture in our great country so no one should be compelled to accept other cultures or even tolerate them. Yes there is a difference between toleration and acceptance but those who want to destroy our country would have us believe differently.

There is no shame in feeling someone engaging in a subculture or foreign culture is out of place here, THEY ARE.

Defecating in public is nothing. Ask an utility worker who has to go into the homes they plan on requiring teachers to go into and they will tell you about the piles of shit in the tub because the plumbing doesn't work.

Sorry, but some people don't use common sense and write these citations to increase activity and or stay on their cars etc. Yes we have a leash law and like every other law the police can and should use discretion. There is a time when it is warranted and a time when you and should use discretion. With the shortage of police, I have to agree, it's pretty "pimpy".

OT: Tell your buds in 016 to stop giving out tickets to dog walkers at Olympia Park; we pay taxes, we don't need to be threatened by a $300 ticket going into the City's coffers for having a dog under voice control 5' away with leash in hand. People are burglarizing our garages and you park a car in the park to sit and wait for??

No, how about you move to a municipality that doesn't have a leash law? That's L-A-W.
Voice control is a myth when a really special squirrel runs by, or a bitch in heat is close, or a dog whistle you can't hear is blown. Keep your dog on a leash or in your fenced yard.
There. See? Now you can't get a citation for walking an unleashed dog. Problem solved.
----------------------------------
Have to side with the Leash law. Your dog might be friendly - but then again, maybe not.

Anyone having a formidable dog - Pitt, Rottweiler, Shepard, Akita and Chow know this and even if the dog is well-trained - they are on leash. Can't take a chance.

It's that cute little Bichon Frise that thinks he can take down a Chow or Akita comes running up unleashed, the dog on the leash will defend itself as well as the owner.

DON"T PUT EITHER DOG INTO THAT SITUATION. The worst dogs I have encountered that are totally out-of-control are usually 10 pounds or less with some ditzy owner and having had several chows (who will take on a Bear), my advice:

Keep FiFi on a leash.

Some dogs are territorial and protective - THIS goes back centuries. Nothing to do with training. They will see FiFi as a threat and do what comes natural.

@OT DOG LOVER
I'm just a citizen but I have to say my respect for cops went up immensely when I went with my sister to take her muscular 90lb Weimaraner for a walk in the park. The dog was a born hunting dog but despite all her efforts to make him docile was nervous and bark prone.

Anyway, she saw other dogs off-leash and let her dog off its leash, as I told her she was risking the ticket. Sure enough a police officer ends up walking into the park and handing out citations. Her dog RUNS up to the officer and start barking up a storm. At 10:30PM mind you. it was dark.

Said officer didn't even flinch, he was cool as a cucumber. Of course he wrote her up but I would have not blamed him (and been only mildly surprised) if he had shot that dog.

Dog owners often just don't understand how other people don't "know" their precious would never harm anybody. I am a big fan of leash laws and tickets.

And my sister's dog? She gave it away. It was eventually put down when it bit a teenager who rang the doorbell. Turns out even she didn't know her animal that well.

I seen a business opportunity here:

a site which monitors social-media sites (infiltrating Facebook and Myspace circles if necessary) and texts warnings to subscribers when planning for a flash-mob is detected.

Private action is required.  The government's program of demolishing housing projects and sending the former occupants to Iowa on Section 8 vouchers is trashing Iowa, but it's not cleaning up Chicago.
