The Wall of Lies Crumbles

Gee, who'd have thunk it? A Chicago mayor lying and his handpicked supernintendo keeping the public in the dark?
  • A number of emergency calls on Memorial Day could pose a credibility problem for Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his new police superintendent.

    The official word from city officials has been that North Avenue Beach was closed that holiday due to concerns for public health. But calls made by beach-goers to Chicago's Office of Emergency Management and Communications seem to support claims that gang activity was also at play.

    "There's a fight breaking out on the beach, because there's nothing but animals covering this beach today," one caller is heard saying in recordings obtained by WLS-AM radio through a Freedom of Information Act request.

    "You can't even walk along the bike path or ride along the bike path. There's the crowd control. What the hell is going on?" the caller fumes.

"What the hell is going on" indeed. Go through the last couple of years of our archives and it will explain quite a bit of what's "going on."

And the bigger the lie, the bigger the rush to defend it:
  • In a statement released late Thursday evening, police officials said the release of the calls changes nothing, and maintained that the decision to close the beach was made "in the interest of public safety and public health."

    Indeed, with temperatures in the 90s, about a half-dozen people at North Avenue Beach were treated for heat exhaustion. Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said ambulances could not get to victims.

CFD has been responding to the beaches for at least the past 100 or so years, probably even longer than that, so McCarthy's excuse holds as much water as his Sabina speech. And since the Department is now labeling gang fights as "public health" matters, maybe there's some CDC funding we could tap into to alleviate the $500 million deficit Shortshanks left Rahm?

The Tribune story on the same topic says and shows evidence directly opposite of ABC 7. They also blocked comments.

I think something fishy is going on. Actually i know and have known for a while.

I dream of vigilantes. I want to be one.

well...... thats pretty damning evidence to me. So what now mr mayor and McSupe??? I think the lies need to stop, already. Less than two months in office and both of these goofs are already lying, getting into bed with special interests(reverunds) and doing exactly what your not suppose to do. this could be a long four years.

Those werent CFD Captains and Cheifs in those white shirts that day at North Ave beach. The News had video taped (channel unk) a huddle of at least five white shirts out side the North Ave Beach house. If the calls were all about the heat then CPD wouldnt have showed up in mass numbers. This cluster of CPD brass made the call, and now the new mayor and his new Supt. are gonna have to eat this. Nice try but no stogie buttheads!!!

In a statement released late Thursday evening, police officials said the release of the calls changes nothing, and maintained that the decision to close the beach was made "in the interest of public safety and public health."

All this means is that they were remiss in their duty to protect the public. Essentially, with one lie they are covering up their neglect on the other end.

Once again, they think decent citizens are blind, deaf and dumb.

They're an odd bunch, politicians. They really live in a bubble of their own making.

At first, I was happy to have him as our Supt. I thought, hoped, he would do well. He appeared to have a decent record in Newark. I wanted him last time and instead got the "silly experiment" (to quote one retired boss). But, after the lies about North Ave Beach being closed due to HEAT, and the pandering at St Sabina's, It will be hard for him to earn my respect as my Supt. "Government-sponsored racism"? Give-me-a-fucking-break! What an asinine statement.

Yeah, the Tribune makes a point of pointing out that "many of the calls" were not about gang activity or violence.

I guess there's an outside possibility that they were hedging or the writer simply doesn't know what "many" implies, but the clear implication is that there were at least some 911 calls about out-of-control violence. If you start with a given number of calls and tell me that "many of them" did not pertain to violence, that means the number that did pertain to violence would be the total number of calls minus "many of them." That leaves us with a non-zero number of calls about violence.

Even that isn't the whole story, because the assumption on which the Tribune's (and the Mayor's) case rests is that if there weren't 911 calls about group violence and intimidation on the beaches, then the beaches weren't closed for that reason. That would assume that whoever made that call didn't get any reports from the beaches through any channel except a review of 911 calls, nor did they visit the area and see it for themselves.

The Eagle and the Serpents

Such discord now 'tween you and us,
Mainstream Media and populace:
You envenom all that we hold dear,
And revel in those things we fear.
You denigrate our national pride
Taking always now the others' side.
A Media mamba, a poisonous pest
That lurks within our Eagle's nest.

You arrogant adders puffed with pride,
We know truth's on our Eagle's side;
And care not what you snakes declare,
We've had it with your venomous fare.
Our Eagle soars above your wrath,
Your tortured, twisted serpents' path.
From your low crawl, you fail to see,
Our Eagle strikes have set men free.

Now the Eagle from his lofty post,
Looks down upon your hissing host,
Who poison every good intent,
With noxious toxins you invent.
Like diamondbacks you loudly rattle,
Strike fear in those you deem but cattle;
But your cattle now look to the sky,
See the Eagle soaring, and know you lie.

Can you Media serpents win this fight?
Bring our Eagle down from newfound height?
No longer now caged up by you,
Only negative news to shape our view.
The Internet set our Eagle free,
Now we can hear, now we can see.
A Mainstream Media hissing lies,
Spitting blinding venom in our eyes.

Our Eagle's spied you false purveyors,
Just negative fools and foul naysayers.
The Eagle knows now he is right,
That he's with honor in this fight.
And despite your biting fanged attacks,
He'll land upon your serpent backs;
An image that should give you pause:
A thrashing snake in Eagle's claws.

Then, the second story was about another wilding/shoplifting spree on Chicago and Michigan.

Oh, yeah; then, later, there was that little tidbit that Ald. Burke is now WILLING TO REVISIT THE NEED FOR HIS BODYGUARD DETAIL.

You were three for three yesterday. Don't doubt for a minute that the wildings would never have been covered if not for this site, that the North Ave beach fiasco would never have been exposed if not for this site, or that the lunacy of a quarter-century old so-called court order for a protective detail wouldn't have been considered without this site.

OT: People, if you're the type that uses the tax system like a piggy bank allowing the Fed and State to take more money out of your paycheck every week just so you get a tax refund, I'd suggest that you stop it. Adjust your W-4 tax allowances otherwise who knows if and when you are ever going to get your overpaid tax money back.

Hey Rahm we are all watching you. Your transparent government is all a bunch of bull. Your 1st mistake was going outside the City to hire your School and Police Chief's. You now have thousands of school and Police employees pissed off. Nice going Mr Mayor.

Let's see, diminishing manpower, lawsuits, revolving door system frustrating enforcement and then having driven out industry over the decades to beautify city for olympic bid and now there are no blue collar jobs for youth limiting them to gangbang, sell dope, and hustle as well as invent new ways to entertain themselves as it it no longer safe for bowling, movies, dances, skating, carnivals,etc(if available) without extensive security. And now superintendent blaming government sponsored racism putting guns in their hands. (http://www.wlsam.com/Article.asp?id=2221691&spid=) Blinders on and full speed ahead

FYI-

Just worked OPY where I was assigned to follow a Catholic Charities van all week as they drove thru the City giving free meals. Today everyone at OPY followed a truck. Sgt running OPY (Elkins?) said it was because the person in charge of the program is a friend of the First Lady so someone at HQ is trying to make a name for themselves using City assets.

So much for the crime problems if we can have 10 police officers and a Sgt following trucks around

Damn, it is almost unbelievable how quickly the new superintendent ruined his reputation since arriving in Chicago. He held so much promise for a new era of great morale and a solid leader. Turns out it was all a facade. I would be ashamed to look at myself in the mirror after lying to the public and not standing up for doing the right thing. The St. Sabina speech just sealed the coffin. What a damn shame.

The Tribune is trying to prop up the wall of lies. Check out this spin from the Trib's coverage:

"There had been reports from witnesses of violent disturbances on the beach on Memorial Day, but many of the recordings, obtained under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, do not contain calls about violent acts."

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/ct-met-north-avenue-beach-911-tapes-20110623,0,503535.story

Compare this to the Sun-Times' coverage:

Emergency dispatchers handled at least five separate calls from beachgoers reporting violent acts in the area of North Avenue and Oak Street beaches, according to 911 audio tapes obtained Thursday by WLS Radio from the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.

A male caller who said he worked at the Oak Street Beach food and concessions stand said, “We have a couple of gentlemen who are threatening to shoot us, threatening to whip our a . . . trying to take our own equipment.”

A female told police there was a large crowd of kids fighting near Oak Street Beach.

A female told the 911 dispatcher that she witnessed someone being attacked in the area of North Avenue Beach where she’d noticed only one bike cop the entire time she was there.

“Yes, there’s a fight breaking out on the beach because there’s nothing but animals covering this beach today,” the female said. “They just took someone down and starting kicking him.

Police said that North Avenue Beach was closed because of hot weather. Several people suffered heat-related illnesses.

I can remember going to North Ave beach several years ago and it was the safest place in the world. There were police on three wheel motorcycles up and down the beach and police regulating traffic in the parking lot. What happened?

6/24/2011 10:40:00 AM


A south side Irish police commander of the 018th District cut all the police there because it was so safe. Why did he need to put police there, he reasoned, if it was so safe?

Similar thing happened with School Patrol Unit. they had a pretty good handle on the schools and some boss figured, what the hell, they don't need the School patrol. they eliminated the unit and sent everyone packing back to districts.

Then a lot of the schools went up for grabs and there were a bunch of very public murders around the schools. Guess why? No School Patrol Unit only our media conveniently forgot to ask the right questions.

Great big oops. They hustled to cover the schools again but the barn had burned down, nothing compared with the school patrol unit.

Not the first time someone gets something right and a couple of bosses down the line a boss figures he can get a promotion by cutting the unit and then shit breaks loose again.

No consistency here. Everybody has to reinvent the wheel every fucking year.

Remember Summer Mobile? Fred Bosse ran it for years, then Guthrie had it for a while. Same guys ran it for years. they had the lakefront thing down pat. They were out there by memorial Day and set the tone for the summer and kept control of the lakefront and beaches.

Then some genius boss does away with Summer Mobile and guess what, things went to shit.

This place is run by morons, I swear to god, for over 25 years I have watched them screw things up again and again.

But they better not listen to me for I am a humble patrolman and by definition I do not have any worthwhile knowledge.

Hint: Start writing shit down in a big book and call it "How to do shit on the police department" and write after action reports and recommendations for the following year.

Then pass this book on to the next regime. As it is, the fucking cave men with their cave drawings documented their history and culture better than the CPD.

The lame excuse McCarthy gave for the beach closing was at the direction of Mayor Rahm. That is why the Police Superintendent job is the biggest fall-guy job in America. You eat the sh1t the mayor serves.

The comments about blowing up the gangs, while there are some that think that is a good idea, it is not a practical course of action and only served to make him look foolish.

The debacle at St. Sabina was what killed whatever credibility he had or would have had during his tenure. Not that community has its feeling of alienation and justification for acting out against the larger society fully justified. It being picked up nationally by Drudge Report didn't help.

Whatever respect and chance the rank and file may have extended to him is gone.

It is going to be a long bumpy ride.

Retire ASAP!!!!

Back then there was a thing called "Summer Mobile", which has since been discontinued by our brain trust. There were Police on 4-wheelers and in cars. A high visibility unit that ran from before Memorial Day past Labor Day.
I know it'll never happen, but that detail should be started up again with the same manpower they deployed back in the day.
But, what do I know.........

This troll thinks there is no story here, move along. These people (the tiny dancer aka Rambo and Garry) have no credibility. We know what happened here. When Garry was on WLS he denied what callers, we citizens knew, saw and reported. For them to say the beach was closed for any other reason than an invasion of ghetto thugs was simply official lying. We can all expect more of the same from these two as we did with Daley and Weiss. Lying is after al the Chicago way. Oh, by the way, has anyone noticed that of the 20 something 911 calls released under the WLS FOIA none were for medical emergencies? They were all involving criminal activity?

This is another story that deserves national attention. This city and this mayor and Supt. want to declare war on us, well then, lets air all the dirty laundry. We all know now that politicians, reporters, police, and average citizens all read this blog, so lets start putting it all out there. The Mayor's have been masterful at putting negative stories regarding alleged police misconduct out oh lets say during contract negotiations or whenever they think it will be advantageous for them. So I say we return the favor by putting the story above and all the other hidden news out there for public consumption.
