Another Shooting (And Another!)

Move along! Nothing to see here. Crime is down. All is well!:
  • A man was hospitalized in critical condition after he was shot by police in the East Garfield Park neighborhood, officials said.

    The shooting occurred on the 3200 block of West Ohio Avenue at about about 8:10 p.m., according to Chicago Police News Affairs [...].

    The shooting victim, who was described as an adult, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, in critical condition...

Um, media dumbasses? The "shooting victim" is the officer involved. The wounded shithead is the offender in a Unlawful Use of a Weapon crime. And the victim was actually "touring the DOC" or "gang conflict area" or whatever they're calling it nowadays when he confronted the armed subject. Good to see some bosses actually base their logs in reality.

Add this one to Frank Main's totals.

UPDATE: 011 kicking it into high gear tonight:
  • Chicago police on late Monday shot and wounded a 13-year-old boy on the city's West Side, the second police-involved shooting of the night.

    No officers were injured in the roughly 11 p.m. shooting in the 1000 block of North Kedvale Avenue in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood, authorities said.

    A source said the wounded person was 13, but a spokesman with the Chicago Fire Department would only confirm that he was a teenager.

Watch yourselves out there.

UPDATE II: Amazingly, this is the photograph provided to the media for the story of the 13-year-old carrying what may turn out to be a BB gun:


Thanks to the family for making the police case for us. We don't even have to try on this one.

UPDATE III: The media cover up begins. TV stations are cropping the photo and the news sites have removed it entirely. Cowards one and all.

In other words the so-called best and brightest are saying in the clip below that the gangs are already here, already entrenched.

Like Obama when the H1-N1 was allowed into the country -- we get the political victim mentality demanding that no-one should be held accountable....It's like ....oh well....it's already here. Trying to do something about it now would be like locking the barn door after the horses got out.

Chicago police use more deadly force as gang war heats up

Chicago police have already shot and killed more people this year than they did in 2010. Officials blame a 'wanton disregard for law,' but critics say police have been too aggressive against gangs.

[...]

...Then this June, current Superintendent McCarthy said his department would “obliterate” the Maniac Latin Disciples, the gang he held responsible for a shooting in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood that left two young girls wounded. “Every one of their locations has to get blown up until they cease to exist,” he told the Chicago Sun-Times.

But the confrontational approach is misguided because it only increases tension, often resulting in more shootouts with police, says Mr. Hagedorn, who teaches at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Many of the gangs are so deeply entrenched in Chicago – the Maniac Street Disciples date back to 1966, for instance – that attacking them will be ineffective, he adds.

“There’s a lot of ways to deal with gangs that have very deep roots besides war," says Hagedorn, who says the current approach “at this point is endangering their officers.”

Community-safety advocates agree that large police sweeps in certain areas increase the culture of violence on both sides.

“If you have the mindset that you need the military in the community, then people in that community feel under siege and everyone feels they’re going to get shot sooner or later,” says Tio Hardiman, director of Ceasefire Illinois, an advocacy group that works to diminish street violence.

A more-nuanced approach, he says, would involve the police educating young men in the community on how best to respond when stopped by police and by training police on how respectfully to approach local residents. Innocent people often become victims of violence because they don’t know how to behave when approached by the police, Mr. Hardiman says.

“Once you put all the guys in one category [of killers], everyone pays the price,” he says.

The IPRA conducts investigations of each shooting to determine if it is consistent with the police department’s official policy for use of deadly force, says Ilana Rosenzweig, director of the group. The findings can then help the department make changes, such as tweaking training procedures.

She says it is premature to draw conclusions on why the fatality rate is up, because the analysis does not cover external factors like the weather or the crime rate of an individual neighborhood.

“There’s any number of factors, but these numbers are important as each of these incidents are studied to see what can be learned,” Ms. Rosenzweig says.

Narco Blog: Thugs Disarm 21 Police Officers in Michoacan Mexico

Authorities in Michoacán have confirmed that criminals disarmed 21 Officers of the States Police command. The uniformed policemen were going to watch a rodeo in the community of San Miguel del Monte, located south of Morelia when hooded men armed with AK-47 have surprised them. The gunmen questioned the officers individually and proceeded to disarm them one by one. The policemen said they could not defend themselves for fear of being executed, as the criminals had threatened.

Elements of various enforcement agencies are conducting operations to find those responsible for stealing the guns from the police, but no positive results have been obtained.

In total 21 police officers were disarmed and the weapons are now in the hands of organized crime.

11 killed in shootings in southern Mexico

By: The Associated Press | The Associated Press | 07/26/11 1:41 AM

A gun battle in a rural area south of Mexico City has led to the death of nine suspected gunmen on Monday, police said.

People in several cars were exchanging gunfire and police began to chase them, Guerrero state police said. Soldiers also joined the hunt.

Officials said the gunmen shot at their pursuers, then some abandoned their cars and fled on foot. They were chased to a cockfighting ring and six were found dead there. Three others were found dead or dying in the cars.

It is unclear whose shots caused the deaths.

Police also reported two dead in the state's largest city, Acapulco. They were found shot to death on a major avenue, possibly after an attempt to hang them from an overpass.

Drug gangs were suspected in both incidents.

Also Monday, five gunmen were killed in a firefight and car chase with soldiers on a highway near Laredo, Texas.

Soldiers gave chase after an SUV they were inspecting pulled away and the passengers started firing at them, said prosecution officials in the northern state of Nuevo Leon.

The gunmen were shot while trying to escape their vehicle after it swerved off the Laredo highway and crashed into a ditch.

As the media attempts to present the recent increase in police shootings in Chicago as an overaggressive crime policy I give you this...

==================

Published: Tuesday, July 26, 2011, 6:35 AM

Times of Trenton Editorial Board By As the rate of shootings rises in Trenton, the number of police officers in the city will soon drop substantially. Police last week reported a 66 percent increase of gun-fueled violence over last year, a “red flag” indicating an escalation of illegally procured guns in the city.

While the department contends with the surge of shootings and gun trafficking, it is also girding for the loss of nearly a third of its officers to the budget necessity of layoffs. The city will let go about 100 policemen and policewomen in its 353-officer force as part of its effort to stay on solid financial ground.

http://www.nj.com/times-opinion/index.ssf/2011/07/editorial_trenton_gun_violence.html

===========

Chicago's not the only place where violent crime is surging. I posted here earlier that I had a gut feeling that the so-called consecutive drops in violent crimes is ending -- unfortunately.

With the economy on this path it's on and with our political leaders clueless I fear it's gonna get a lot worse.

Wonder how the "broken windows" are going in Newark? You decide.

Despite recent shootings, Newark's top cop believes violence is on the decline

NEWARK — Newark has seen a 40 percent surge in gun violence this year, but the city’s top cop said today that despite a recent rash of shootings, his "Safe City" anti-violence campaign is helping to reverse the trend.

Between Jan. 1 and July 10, there were 175 shootings in Newark, leaving 213 people dead or injured, according to police statistics. During the same period last year, there were 125 shootings and 161 victims.

[...]

Authorities said Monday’s violence was the result of a growing rivalry between drug crews. Around 6 p.m., four people were injured when shots were fired on Halsey Street in the city’s bustling downtown area. Four hours later, 15-year-old Al-Aziz Stewart was killed and seven others were injured in a shooting on Scheerer Avenue in the city’s South Ward.

[...]

DeMaio said a car rolled to a stop at each location Monday, and multiple gunmen opened fire into crowds at both scenes. Booker said the assailants wore rubber gloves and masks in one attack

Are you fucking kidding me! Why don't you wake up you Liberal piece of shit. Your mentality is exactly the kind of thinking that allows these shitbirds to roam free and stay on double secret probation. These "opressed people" you speak of are milking the governments teet (section 8, Link, Wic etc.) and are exhausting social security faster than your grandparents ever could. They use whatever system that "provides" assistance and find every loop hole to suck every last drop and people like you want to give them more. This City caters to these creatures even when they claim they have no money. Money that can be used to hire more officers to help combat against the growing violence and Total disregard for the law.

I don't understand people like you. I suspect your a shitbird yourself. I suspect you're also choosing to stay in the welfare system with your free CPS education and expecting the City to just give you a job. Why not? They're giving you
Everything else. And what you don't have, you steal. And when we stop your criminal ass, all of a sudden you're oppressed? Give me a fucking break!

Most Americans are pretty much kept ignorant to that behavior of the savages South of the border. The day that happens in THIS country, to American citizens, will be the day that "awakens the sleeping giant" of the silent majority of Americans, much like the way it did after the bombing of Pearl Harbor or the World Trade Center.

I'd almost like to see it happen... it would undoubtedly begin to turn the tide on closing our borders and the whole concept of the DREAM Act, the sanctuary city and amnesty toward U.S. citizenship for those here already illegally.

Clearly it's not a gang sign in the picture, but a future professor working out a trig problem on his hands. Let's not educate ourselves and take accountability for our, (and ours) own actions. You can't play the victim card if you look into the mirror. I don't remember my dad ( who lived under the same roof and had the same last name as ALL his children) letting his 13 year old kids run around at 11 O'clock at night with a BB gun. On the brighter side : Chicago police officers have used deadly force 40 times already this year, compared to 46 times all of last year. 16 suspects have been shot and killed, compared to 13 last year. At least your aim is getting better. Please be safe out there officers.

What kind of ignorant, mindless motherf__er gives the papers a snapshot of their child representing?

Why, the ones who raised him up like this.

Babymama ain' see nothin' wrong. Ev'y one in the house run wit a crew.

See this all the time. Send a six-year-old out the door onto the city streets with hat on sideways, one pant leg up, five pounds of bling around neck.

"Ain't he cute."

POP! POP! POP!

"AAAAAAAAA! My baby!"

Idiots.

I remember typing about ten hours ago "There's my first hyphenated middle name. How long will it be before the first names go?"

Here it is.

"15-year-old Al-Aziz Stewart was killed and seven others were injured in a shooting on Scheerer Avenue in the city’s South Ward."

--7/26/2011 03:53:00 AM

"Newark has seen a 40 percent surge in gun violence this year, but the city’s top cop said today that despite a recent rash of shootings, his "Safe City" anti-violence campaign is helping to reverse the trend."

We can tell.

"...a car rolled to a stop at each location Monday, and multiple gunmen opened fire into crowds at both scenes. Booker said the assailants wore rubber gloves and masks in one attack."

Sounds like a "Safe City" to me.

Everyone else OK with this?

Where is the "allegedly a straight A student"? Reporters, please follow up on these reported grades. When police say he pointed a gun...you say "allegedly". When momma says "straight A student", why don't you say "alleged straight A student"?

7/26/2011 12:15:00 PM

The mother said he was a good student, not a straight A student. A good student means he shows up to class and does not break the rules. Grades in public schools do not measure cognitive skills. The young boy played basketball and went to school. The standards are set very low.

Great way to "ratchet up" your credibility, as the hipsters say -- alter photographs, omit offender descriptions, and close comments sections. Like, I mean, it's cool to do that.

They did this last time one of these snapshots got loose -- I seem to remember about a five-year-old kid with his hat on sideways, representing with the fingers, which they cropped out.

Tribune Co. -- newspaper, radio station, TV station, web empire. Hey, fedgov -- bust this up under antitrust, willya? Just leave us Tom Skilling. He's about the only worthwhile, decent person on the premises. I am always embarassed for him.

I notice they have dropped "Chicago Breaking News." The whole web site is gone. The URL just redirects to the Tribune web site now. Aa haha. Declining revenues, huh? Economy move, huh? Maybe some trendies let go, huh?

How in the hell can the media crop the photograph? What kind of soulless assholes work there? Even if they sold their souls to the devil and want to make a buck off of the beaten-to-death attacks against police, there must be a good story here about how families are part of a gang culture.

Can't you asshole reporters see that as a story that will sell? Are you so pathetic that you need to CONSTANTLY make excuses for thug behavior?

BUSTED! YOU DIRTY LIBERAL COCK-SUCKERS YOU!

The fibune apparently cropped the road scholar's photo earlier today so as not to show his hands and full attire...

Now they "updated" it into cyberspace and substituted a picture of some of his his "concerned" family members...

The scum-times is running a sympathy pic of pooky laying his little shot ass in the hospital bed with a cervical collar on and seemingly under sedation...

We pray for the day these propaganda spewing bowel-rags are forced to shutter and the people who help drive their slanted and biased agenda are forced to live along the banks of the Sanitary and Ship Canal in squatter camps.

We do swear, aver and attest that if we ever crossed paths with a newsie in need of Police service, it would give us cause to take a long hard pause...

We're actually hard pressed to say we've seen a bunch of more resolutely rotten, willfully slanted and detached from the real world muthafuckahs than these examples illustrate.

The Police are the enemy. The little ass-nuggets running around with pistols (we're shootin' first and verifying later whether or not it's real or fake) are the tragic heroes of New Chicago.

You're a fucking fool if you don't believe this media shit isn't being orchestrated on someone's orders...

They don't want the rapidly replicating catered to constituents to be offended.

So... Fuck every that has to pay the freight around here?

We sorely resent being pulled into second class citizenship and de facto slavery for playing by the rules while sad and sorry people who contribute nothing but soreness, shit and shame get their entire asses kissed...

Just splash the kerosene and shoot the fucking lights out already and drive away while it burns...

You crop the photo around his rather pudgy face and you see a sweet looking kid.

Not cropping the photo shows a thug in training.

I believe the media should show both pics and let the public decide.

Personally, a 13 year old can exert a few pounds of trigger pull and fire a weapon. If he's walking around with a BB gun that looks like a handgun he's likely to find himself with some additional holes if confronted by the police.

Such is life. The kid should have dropped the BB gun or better yet he should NOT have been carrying it in the first place. I know how retrograde of me to think that the parents may bare some of the responsibility here for young Jimmel being in the hospital.

Are you fucking kidding me! Why don't you wake up you Liberal piece of shit. Your mentality is exactly the kind of thinking that allows these shitbirds to roam free and stay on double secret probation. These "opressed people" you speak of are milking the governments teet (section 8, Link, Wic etc.) and are exhausting social security faster than your grandparents ever could. They use whatever system that "provides" assistance and find every loop hole to suck every last drop and people like you want to give them more. This City caters to these creatures even when they claim they have no money. Money that can be used to hire more officers to help combat against the growing violence and Total disregard for the law.

I don't understand people like you. I suspect your a shitbird yourself. I suspect you're also choosing to stay in the welfare system with your free CPS education and expecting the City to just give you a job. Why not? They're giving you

"TV stations are cropping the photo and the news sites have removed it entirely. Cowards one and all."

ChannelTribune (9) News tonight cropped and enlarged this photo so much to show just the face that you could see the whole thing blurring with the square pixels.

Slippery slope here, altering photographs to completely obscure their real content and meaning.

Hey, Trib. Why not outright Photoshop material so that it will show the offenders offering flowers to the police, doing scientific things with slide rules and test tubes, bottle-feeding lost baby squirrels, etc.?

Ethically you're already over the line into deceit. You just need to catch up technically.

Beware boys and girls... They want their payback against The Police for being outed in such spectacular fashion...

The current spate of picture cropping, photoshopping, image blurring, link redirecting, word parsing and creative editing employed by Chicago mainstream media personifies the ultimate definition of the following word... *drum-roll, rim-shot & a side order of fries*

"F U C K E R Y!"

Liberal yellow-pinky, scooter riding, matching beret & scarf, capri pants, birkenstocks, cat-eye glasses wearing (male & female) trotskyite bitches are driving the agenda in Chicago.

Just for shits and giggles and for the sake of all "non-police" readers, WHY DONT WE TABULATE THE UPS AND DOWNS IN THE LIFE OF THE YOUNG 13 yr old HERE ON SCC (leaving him nameless of course)until of certain legal age?

Document the arrests, calls for service, school work/or lack thereof, family arrests....etc.

Sort of a sociological tracking study to analyze where and when things go wrong.

Updates (frequently) from the 011th Dist. warriors to tell us positive and negative encounters and such.

Like the movie with Jim Carey where his life was on TV all the time. We can watch from a far but live it with him! Even when he goes to Juve or County then prison!

Everyone can be in on it but him!

The Expose could be called:

Up and down with DUDE! Or the Trials and Tribulations of DUDE! Or DUDE's Odyssey!
