Orange One Earning His Green

  • Police shot and killed a man when he took a woman hostage outside of a club in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side early this morning, police said.

    At 12:40 a.m., police received a 911 call of a man with a gun near South Ashland Avenue and West 80th Street, said Pat Camden with the Fraternal Order of Police. Gresham District officers responded and saw a large group of people coming out of a club in the area. The officers saw a man who had taken a woman hostage, Camden said. "He had his arm around her neck and was holding her in front of him," Camden said.

    Officers began to struggle with the man during which the woman was able to get away, unhurt, Camden said. The man reached for a weapon in his waistband which prompted police to fatally shoot the man, he said.

So once again, best wishes to the involved Officers. Watch yourselves.

It's unusual to see an FOP press officer, as opposed to a CPD News Affairs rep, being quoted in news articles on matters relating to breaking crime news. What's up with that? Why is the union doing this? And is CPD brass OK with the union stealing the spotlight? In my opinion, what Pat Camden is doing is making the union more authoritative to the general public, making FOP the go-to source for the press. Smart move.

I was monitoring the zone for 023 District last night. There must have been 10-15 different calls of m/1s with guns in the vicinity of Clark St by WRIGLEY FIELD!!! Plus, bonafide Armed robberies. What the hell is going on over there???

All you Shields haters take note; the fact is that he filled the void of putting a "pro" police spin on news that otherwise would be twisted against us. Every POI shooting has the Orange Guy telling our side, while the Media is stuck with some toothless mope claiming it was an assassination. In a world where perception becomes reality, the first story counts.

Complain to CLTV about their coverage.

They are showing an interview with the dead shithead's daddy from 006 and the title at the base of the screen describe's him as "victim's father".

He should be described as "alleged offender's father". Are they doing this on cue from someone?

I'm just waiting for the media to start " investigating " why there are " so many " police shootings.
Then the usual parade of fake 'revruns & community activists with a handful of crying mamas spouting the same tired old shit.
The REAL question of why mutts are trying to kill Police Officers will never be addressed.

CPD should pay Pat Camden as a part time employee as a spokesman and could reassign the political office police back to a district.

Pat Camden is certainly a great spokesman for the Police. I always thought he did a great job when he worked for the city and now for the FOP. Hopefully he gets on the news when all serious situations involving the police are going on. Great job Mr. Camden!

Forty-one years ago tonight, Jim SEVERIN and Tony RIZZATO, Area 6 Task Force, were assassinated by sniper fire while walking across the baseball field just south of "the Rock"--1150 Sedgwick, their weapons still holstered. REST IN PEACE!

While the Cabrini-Green jets have been razed for "gentrification", I drove east on Elm St. from 018 to the cul de sac this morning and stared out at second base. As a then Area 6 Homicide detective, I will never forget that horrific night.

Again recently denied parole, cop killers Johnny VEAL, age 58, #C01600 (ISP-Hill) and George Clifford KNIGHTS, age 64, #C15356 (ISP-Pinckneyville) continue to rot in the ISP. Pine boxes await these two muthafuckas on their trip to Hell.

Well, Monique was speaking for the CITY, not for US. Maybe that's the difference? Ya think?

And for the people bitching, wanting Pat to represent the police department, uh, NO. If he represents the CPD or the City, he has to read the Party script.

When he works for US, he has OUR best interests at heart and can speak freely for US, not say what the superintendent TELLS him he can say.

Just remember, the first story the public hears is the one they believe.

From the ISPeeved blog.

"DONT KNOW WHERE TO POST THIS:
WTF, Grau is another Gainer. Now we get Monique Bond as new Chief of WHAT? Never knew we had an old chief.
Quinn and Grau have got to go.
Sorry Jack."

Has anyone heard about Monique Bond moving to ISP at the request of Grau? Just like with Terry Gainer I had high hopes but they were quickly dashed. Looks like more of the same with this guy if he had anything to do with this shit. And the ISP continues to circle the toilet.

OT If Rahm wants to cut from the budget he could get rid of the propaganda channel. We do not need to be told 24-7 what a wonderful job all the city agencies are doing. Also get rid of field lieutenants, lieutenants in charge of units. Cut the number of chiefs and deputies. The upper brass is nothing but a bunch of pencil pushers who contribute nothing but shame and aggravation to the department.

Shields is either a smart cookie or he stumbled into this one, but either way, hiring Pat Camden at FOP was a great move. Grau just hired Monique Bond at ISP to fill the newly created position of PIO and she's the one that engineered Camden's unceremonious exit at CPD. Biggane, Bond and Camden at the same meeting would be an interesting sight to observe.

FUCK complaining to the Socialist Chicago News Media. Let their Sponsors know you are boycotting ALL products advertised on CLTV, including theirs, PASS the WORD, and DO IT.. Post the Companies to boycott for our Coppers so they know and can boycott too, if they want. Stick together. Companies, ie. Toyota, don't want to hear that 10,000 Chicago Police Officers, their families, and friends/fellow officers; etc; are boycotting their Company, and very well might drop off of advertising on CLTV, thus screwing CLTV, get it ?
Money talks, loss of money is unacceptable to the Companies advertising on CLTV. All else is just HOT AIR to these news parasites..

Gotta agree 8:03 AM, The Union made a smart move with Camden. Knows how to talk to the Media and tells the truth about the incident, which portrays the Police in the way they should be portrayed ( doing their Job correctly and in the best interest of the Public).No more referring to the offender as "Alleged".I should have mentioned first: Great Job by P.O.'s involved and glad no one hurt.

What was wrong with the current way for releasing information about a shooting? the city made no comment other than to say that a person was shot by police, no further comment. What happens when Camden says somethng that's not true or makes an error in what he says and they bring that up during the civil case( because if you shoot good or not you will be sued)? Plus does Fop ask the officer involved if they can make a comment on his behalf concerning the shooting first?

Is Tunney actually linked to that place somehow? What a disaster. Your feet stick to the floor when you walk through the place. Disgusting.

They must have one serious phone call, because we went in three times one night to tell them to cut the volume down to 'deafening, from 'painful'. Got told the next day to leave them (and the liquor store on the n/w corner) alone.

That 'child' hired Camden, which was a great move.

No idea on the whether the office furniture was warranted, but if a new car was necessary anyway, I'm thinking it's good he didn't buy a Prius.

Hate to say it, but you sound really jealous. We ARE the big city police, after all. Our union president should be using a vehicle that is appropriate to that position. One could assume he is driving people around in that car, lobbying with that car, taking other city, state or Federal officials around in that car, etc. I wouldn't be expecting him to do that in some haywagon.

It's kind of like the nice suits. Sadly, too many people are impressed with expensive business attire and lots of gold jewelry. In a lot of quarters, that gives you an edge, and, whether it's warranted or not, more credibility. If the nice car has that effect, so be it.

Let's remember, it's not HIS car. It's the FOP's car and it will be the FOP's car well after he's gone.
