Felon/Parolee Charged - Comments Closed

  • Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy praised the “character and courage” of two officers who were wounded in a West Side shootout with an alleged drug dealer who was today ordered held without bond in connection with the incident.

    Speaking at a news conference at the Cook County Criminal Courts Building, McCarthy said that Harrison District Officers [RDV] and [JF] were both ex-U.S. Marines and Iraq War veterans.

    The two were out of Stroger Hospital and expected to make a full recovery.

Full recovery? They're both carrying lead around in their bodies. And one of the officers may be permanently disabled due to his wound.

This is an amazing story though:
  • In the chaos that ensued, [F] was able to give responding police a good description of the suspect before being taken to Stroger. [DV], who was treated and released from Stroger that night, returned to the scene “with the bullet still lodged in his arm” and led detectives on a walk-through of the crime, McCarthy said.

    That information, along with descriptions from a witness, led police to Jones, who was arrested at home about five hours later, according to police and prosecutors. A gun that matches the description and caliber of the weapon used in the shooting was found in an abandoned home a few doors away.

    Both officers identified Jones as the gunman in police lineups, authorities said.

And again, Quinn, Alvarez, even Devine and others need to answer why this asshole was on the streets:
  • Jones was on parole for a drug conviction at the time of the shooting and has five other felony convictions in his background, including a 2006 conviction for possessing a gun, court records show.

    The Illinois Department of Corrections Web site indicates that Jones was imprisoned at Pinckneyville Correctional Center before being paroled on July 28. His parole was set to terminate next Thursday.
We're going to go out on a limb here and say Jones has never contributed in any way, shape or form to society in any legal manner whatsoever. Yet he roams the streets, dealing dope, shooting cops and who knows what else. He needs to be put down like the rabid animal he is.

Oh, and the Tribune closed comments again.

Dear SCC this is my first post,

On Monday, July 18, 2011 I was on furlo enjoying the day with my family. After 25 years on the job we enjoy each furlo more and more. That night while asleep I received a call “Were you sleeping?” “Yes”
“ Ruben has been Shot.” My heart sank. You see one of the officers who was shot on Monday night is my dearest cousin. My son and I immediately picked up my cousins grandparents and took off to the hospital. Many thoughts raced through my mind but one in particular stood out and that was the day he told me he wanted to be a Chicago Police Officer. And so it was. He was now the 5th Chicago Police Officer in our family. His mother, father and our entire family are very proud of him. He asked me to attend his ceremony at the academy and pin his star on him. As He stood there proudly in his uniform my eyes welled up with tears and I pinned his star on him. Today I am racing to the hospital because he has just been shot. When we arrived at the hospital and the doors to the E.R. were opened we were met with our CPD Family assuring his mother, grandparents and my son and I that he was in stable condition. The Superintendent immediately met us, also, all our Brothers and Sisters in Blue, Doctors and Nurses, the Detectives, the 1st Deputy, Sgt.’s, Lt.’s, Chaplains, Exempt members, FOP. The love and support shown and given was beyond words. We felt so blessed and humbled. When we saw my cousin and his partner and where they were shot, one word came to mind “Miracle”. We thanked Almighty God for having protected them both. Today is a good day. Today two officers are alive and recovering. Today families are smiling and not crying. Today an evil thug has been arrested and charged for the attempted murder of two police officers. Today on behalf of my family and myself we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all who were on the scene, to all who were at the hospital, to all who were with us, to CPD Brothers and Sisters who worked tirelessly in apprehending the offender, to SCC for your prayers and blog, and to all the other agency’s who sent their prayers and help, Thank You from the bottom of our hearts. Stay safe, take care and watch each other’s back. God Bless and Protect all of you always.

First and foremost, thank God the two brave officers were not killed or more seriously injured. We all hope they make a full recovery. Secondly, with all the griping going on about the CPD, the story of these two former Marines shows that the CPD is still recruiting and training very high quality indviduals who take their oaths of office seriously. It is comforting to know, as a citizen, that we have such people protecting us from the animals who roam the streets of Chicago. Finally, it is the judges and the liberal Democrats who are to blame for this near disaster. With 5 felony convictions including one involving the use of a gun, how can this savage be on the street? The judges don't sentence criminals severely enough and the jelly spined governor with his liberal, progressive attitude directs the IDOC and the Parole Board, both of which he controls, to give convicted felons early releases. Stay safe and know that this citizen and, I believe, most others appreciate the job that you are doing under extremely adverse circumstances.

When Alveraz announced her run for Cook County States's Attorney most people knew then that the establishment would get behind her. Afterall, she was experienced, a women and hispanic. Can't lose on that one. This is a liberal county and a conservative just can't win. A conservative will be blasted for their views on issues that they can't possibly influence during thier term in office. I certainly hope that how Alvarez handled the investigation into the cousin of the mayor comes back to haunt her in the next election. The problem is, however, who will run against her? Who has the money and the name recognition? And, the press most certainly will be in her corner along with Sen Durbin, Gov. Quinn and Preckwinkle.

SCC- though I was raised to be a devout Catholic, truthfully, I wasn't sure I believed in "a" devil until I moved to the city of Chicago and breathed the devil’s stink, witnessed it shimmying up the drainpipes and crawling out of the woodwork. And then I got what a cop’s job here is all about. And for certain my belly and heart felt God and the power of his angels during the swift, expert response of the Chicago Police Department post these shootings of two of their own very young fellow officers. And hearing that this piece of filth, the devil incarnate, has been entrapped, shackled, deflated? Kudos CPD. May God bless every officer in this city and keep you all safe from what you will never not be up against.

As many times as I have seen him he spoke to me once. I tried to accept this as him just being overwhelmed at first, but J-Fled and McSupe have much in common in that way. Neither will so much as look your way, much less say 2 words to you. I know J-Fled would bury his face in the Crackberry, if you were on the elevator with him and many have said McSupe learned how to do the same thing from reliable sources. Many people hated Jimmy Jackson, but one thing he always did was greet everyone and shake your hand. He knew how to give respect to the troops and he led by example. Cline was alot of things, but at least he acknowledged everyone also. If McSupe wants any respect, he better learn how to give it, instead of blowing everyone off like they are useless assholes and beneath him. You want respect, you sure as hell better give it. This guy is another arrogant jaakass.

Want a friend? Buy a dog.

Why the fuck would the superintendent start shaking your fucking hand while you are in uniform, standing around, doing nothing. Is your heroic dedication so obvious that every fucking boss has to thank you for standing around doing nothing.

If the superintendent were so insecure that he had to grovel around me for my love and affection, then I would probably quit on the spot.

He has a job to do. I have a job to do. I'll do mine whether or not he does his. In fact, my job has very little, if anything, to do with him.

I have news for you. You are no fucking hero. You are doing a job and getting paid to do it. Be thankful you have one because your city work mindset has made you unemployable in the private sector.

Way OT here.....and a (pissed off) civilian post at that......

How can I help the CPD? Can I volunteer to watch camera's in high-crime areas? Can I help do routine and boring surveillance? Can I help summarize any data, or, prepare crime reports? (I have a M.A. degree in Statistics). I imagine I'm not the only pissed off, 5'10 200lb athletic male in Chicago that wants to help protect this city. Why not leverage and channel my rage into something productive, rather than having me think about what kind of handgun/silencer combo I'm going to be getting (advice on that is welcomed too, by the way). What if there are thousands of me? All that combined volunteer time, totally going to waste. Tragic.

Thanks for any advice.....

"Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy praised the “character and courage” of two officers who were wounded in a West Side shootout..."

Talk about bending over and walking into the room backwards, pushing the door open with your a__.

The "character and courage" of the two officers was never an issue.

"Harrison District Officers [RDV] and [JF] were both ex-U.S. Marines and Iraq War veterans."

So? They're not the ones tearing up the neighborhoods all day and all night.

What a way to safely, harmlessly fill up TV time while carefully avoiding pointing a finger where it belongs -- the way SCC has. "[The shooter] Jones has never contributed in any way, shape or form to society in any legal manner whatsoever. Yet he roams the streets, dealing dope, shooting cops and who knows what else. He needs to be put down like the rabid animal he is."

THAT'S the problem.

Is it just me or is any other copper bothered by the fact that we have another outsider as the superintendent? Yesterday while watching the news Superintendent Garry McCarthy is in uniform. White shirt gold star...ect..ect..and im thinking thats bullshit he didn't earn that uniform. I feel the best person to run this department is someone inside the ranks who knows this department has worked the streets and knows what coppers do on a everyday basis. I dont care if he has police background, he still not chicago police, and he was chief of newark nj, thats not Newyork city, thats like a suburb dep over there.

Nobody is asking him to kiss our asses or bow down to us. But every once in a while, it is a courtesy to at least acknowledge your troops. You may be the Superintendent, but your shit smells the same and you have to wipe your ass like the rest of us. Your troops are the one that keep this city safe and from becoming a battle zone. Don't you understand that you are more respected by the troops by acknowlegding them and appreciate the job they do every day. You talk about being unemployable in the private sector and thankfully having a job. But you fail to remember or even think about the risks we are up against or the fact that when you leave for work, you may never return home. Take a damn look at the honored star case or the Memorial Wall and rant about how the guys and gals in blue don't deserve any amount of the slightest bit of respect from the Superintendent. We may be standing around at that moment, but in less than a blink of an eye we can have a gun pointed at us, shot at, or killed in the line of duty. Get off your fucking soap box. If you are a cop, you are the one who no one will work with for more than one shift, if that long. Just remember from the top down we are all the THIN BLUE LINE and a family like no other.

Quinn Pardons 50 For Past Crimes

Overall, Quinn has acted on 1,356 clemency petitions since taking office and denied 839 requests, including 111 on Friday, his office said. He has granted clemency 517 times, including 506 pardons. He has also authorized 10 people already pardoned to seek expungement of their convictions and granted one commutation among cases before the Prisoner Review Board.

Quinn just pardoned 50 more, you know, so they can get good jobs and get a second or 5th or 14th chance in life. Unlike murder victims who get no more chances.

Buy and PRACTICE with regular velocity soft lead wadcutters.Fire about a hundred off in prcatice and don't clean the barrel until after you use it socially, then scrub it with chore boy wrapped on your bore brush. Dress in muted tones (maybe wear a bright baseball cap that you can stash in a pocket. Leave nothing behind. Have several exit routes planned. Whatever you do act like you belong there. Very few people notice the world around them. Tell no one, ever. In the rest of the country just ignore the above and get a CCW.

As many times as I have seen him he spoke to me once. I tried to accept this as him just being overwhelmed at first, but J-Fled and McSupe have much in common in that way. Neither will so much as look your way, much less say 2 words to you. I know J-Fled would bury his face in the Crackberry, if you were on the elevator with him and many have said McSupe learned how to do the same thing from reliable sources. Many people hated Jimmy Jackson, but one thing he always did was greet everyone and shake your hand. He knew how to give respect to the troops and he led by example. Cline was alot of things, but at least he acknowledged everyone also. If McSupe wants any respect, he better learn how to give it, instead of blowing everyone off like they are useless assholes and beneath him. You want respect, you sure as hell better give it. This guy is another arrogant jaakass.

Mc Carthy is nothing more than politican, google his name and be prepared to reed about a power hungry out of control drunk misfit cop from New York!!! If this guy was soo good why did he leave New York??? Guns are not the problem in Chicago, young BLACK and PUERTO RICAN gang bangers are!!!! Go to www.secondcitycop.com and listen to the cops who are dealing with this kind of trash on a daily basis. Untill the city admits what they have to do to deal with these criminals the violence will continue. If you want to ask some questions about what is really going on , I challenge the Trib to ask the judges that are letting these gangbangers go time and time again why they can't keep this trash in jail, or better yet ask the States Attorney about reducing charges or not charging these criminals at all. As for the idiots that are stupid enough to shoot at a cop, I like to go back to the old untouchables movie, "They put one of yours in the hospital, you put one of theirs in th morgue, THATS theChicago way""" Jim Crow??? How about "Blue Crow? you shoot at us we will kill you" and by the way I'm not a cop!!!

.....So I had my opinion of Mcarthy completely firmed up today. Ran into him during my tour...with him and his entourage...and he didn't even acknowledge our lowly presence. He didn't wave or nod or even flinch. I was in full uniform.....


After reading this observation and that of several others with negative comments, I will say this;

Many years ago I was sent by the front office staff of my dist. on a messinger run to 1121. S. State to deliver some sealed papers to James A. Maurer, Chief of Patrol.

I was to wait for a response and return to the district. His secretary announced me and I could hear him say just send him in. He greeted me like I was an old friend he had known for many years and yet I had just met him.

This has been the case with quite a few of the old CPD bosses, not all mind you, but still it made you feel good and you felt like you were an equal to somebody and not another robot in the system.

I have seen many of the old Supt's arrive at the scene of various crimes and they would always give you the nod, or a wave to acknowledge your presence.

This new command staff has apparently lost that feeling that we are all working together.

Perhaps this message needs to be forwarded to the Mayor and the New Supt.?

It is sad to read the comments about the Superintendent not acknowledging the common cop at the scene - OR anywhere else.

Those that say he does not owe you that are TOTALLY wrong.

Some of you have been brainwashed for so long with Chicago clout politics that you don't know the qualities of leadership anymore.

Some of you maybe never saw any "true" leadership so you don't have a yardstick to measure McCarthy or anyone else.

A leader should recognize his men (and women) and give them the encouragement to do a good job.

Why wouldn't you recognize the guy at the frontline? He (or she) is the one making you look good - or bad to the person on the street, not the captains sitting at their desks or the backroom staff playing in the crystal ball unit.

Leadership starts at the top of ANY ORGANIZATION (public or private). You can tell how good or bad a company is based on their middle management. If they are a bunch of clowns or act unprofessional it is because whoever is at the top is the same way.

Go into a real first-class organization and you do NOT find any "jerkoff" bosses. They are not tolerated. The organization won't tolerate them.

Whoever is at the top sets the tone of the organization. As the saying goes, a first-class leader will surround himself with first-class managers. A second-class leader will surround himself with fourth-rate managers.

Why? The person on top is either very confident about his abilities OR he is insecure and doesn't want any subordinate gunning for his job.

In the case of CPD, you have a puppet, not a leader. And, with all the years of bad leadership, the organization has fourth-rate talent across the ranks of senior staff.

You need a Patton at the top to restore the quality and pride in the CPD. Unfortunately, if you did get him he would decimate the senior staff.

McCarthy is no Patton and J-FLED was like the soldier he slapped in the hospital.

The big boss can't acknowledge everyone at a scene. If your feelings got hurt, you are in the wrong profession. I have seen McCarthy and shot the breeze with him and a few other coppers. No big deal.

I can't believe someone is still singing the "Jimmy Mauer was a great boss" song. He took care of his own and is a big reason this Department is in the sorry state it is in. When he didn't get his way, he suddenly got religion and became a "whistle blower". I guess he just didn't see all the corruption when he was getting paid.

to all those short term p.o.'s who are whining about if McCarthy should be nice to you or not let me tell you this:
When I came onto the job the highest up you would go is MAYBE a lieutenant as far as talking to a supervisor. You didn't dare go into the watch commanders office without approval from the desk sgt, and then knocking on that door and waiting for the W.C. to acknowledge you and invite you in. Sometimes the W.C. would tell you to go away, so you did.
If you saw the commander walk in you said "Hi boss" and maybe, just maybe you got a nod. Anything above commander you didn't want to even see if possible. This place has started filling up with "he puts his pants on just like me, or his shit stinks the same as mine" people. That much is true but when speaking of that person remember this, their pants might be on like yours, their shit may stink just like yours but they have rank on you, they've either done the job so well to make it, or they are heavier than shit and got it "the chicago way" either way why would they want to bother with a blue shirt like you or me?
If your feelings really get hurt so much because a guy doesn't say hi to you, switch professions because this ones not for you.
As far as McCarthy goes? I still haven't made up my mind yet, but I will wait and see, it will take some time for him to either fuck up or help out.

It wasn't just the police. He treated everyone like that. Spouse was on a City Hall elevator with him and said "hello" as he got on, J-Fled just turned away.
Saw him at a neighborhood event, he wouldn't talk to any of the local people who came up to talk to him, would just walk away. No social skills.

Yes there was commanders who would just nod to you, but at least they nodded and just didn't look the other way and avoid you. I have seen great leadershoip in this department. Bosses who you would go to hell and back for. But they appreciated there men and treated them with courtesy and respect. Fine you are a boss, but it's the guys and gals on the street that make you look good or like shit. The best and greatest leaders, even when they chewed you out for a fuckup, tyreated you no different after that. You took it like a man and went forward. I worked for one of the biggest asshole commanders there was, but he would stand side by side with you when all hell broke loose. When you called for help he would show up with everyone else and when he needed help we were right there. He may have been sarcastic, but he made sure he was there for you. What you don't realize is nobody want their ass kissed or a speech on how great we are, but just to be acknowledged. Just a nod a wave or give us the finger. At least then we know you support the job the troops do day in and day out. It is called leadership. You want us to acknowledge those we work for, the citizens, at least acknowledge us. No one needs to be told they are supercop or the department would fall apart without them. We know better. Just a little acknowledgement. You don't have to pat me on the back, shake my hand or have a conversation. Just a nod is fine. I can respect that. Not if you treat us like we are not there and avoid looking at us.
