Sarcasm and Silliness from a Windy City Cop

THe bs message made it sound like like every shitbird will be sporting this. Baggy pants and pistol in waistband, nothing else. What kind of tactical idiot from HQ thought this might be used by our local garbage on the corner? I don't remember last time somebody got arrested with pistol and holster.
Whats the big deal, it don't cover much. The bad guys never buy much. They steel most stuff and put it into their waist-band. How many bad guys even have holsters, and I'm not talking about security guards. They should have been giving us the info so we could buy it for off-duty. Department is a joke.
It looks cool, but its no big deal. You can buy a vest and gun now. This city just wants a bunch of sheep.
I'm so happy that this has been brought to my attention. because I just bought one. Thanks!
Every school kids friend. They should give them out on parent teacher day.
There bad for your back. Gun around the waist and vest front and back are better than back pack.More BS
I can't wait to see everyone running around with back-packs. Years ago every off duty guy would have a fanny-pack. Well here we go now its back-pack time. Whats next streaking with only your belt, gun and holster.
How many recovered from streets?Years ago they made a big deal about the cellphone pistol. Only the goverment makes or has them. CIA shit. None ever recovered. The department should put more energy and time on shooting skills. There are a lot of people in the general public who train and can out shoot 98% of the police. As they say get back to the basics. search all persons and bags. Take your job serious; especially shooting skills and drawing your weapon.
Just ordered one armor included.
Anyone thinking of buying one better think about practicing with it.
The Mayor has a plan to charge for parking at all public facilities including employees!!! The Mayor wants no one to get a free pass except his select few that is.
I seen Max Micheal get his gun out of his holster, fire and drop a target under .5 sec. Check him out on youtube. Never fear the product.
The plates *WILL* be extra, I only know of one shop that has the plates for $300 and that is U.S. Palm which makes a great product for the homeowners. The .mil folks should make some recommendations on plates, just keep in mind that the lighter the plates, the more expensive they get. Still the Ares backpack is an excellent platform!
How many of practice pulling our gun out. This looks like this guy practiced a whole lot. I don't own one but I'm betting that it isn't that easy. Anyone who makes something look easy did a lot of practice. Stay thirsty my friends
Does this gear count for plain close outfit. Just asking. Where can I put my lunch. Or does it just fall to the floor when I get my Glock.
What are the colors? Can we get them to match are uniforms. Well are uniform code is so relaxed no one should notice I have a backpack.
I want my first issue. The traffic safety vest is junk. They can have that back.
The manufacturer is that of a US Marine. The packs are PLATE CARRIERS and the plates are sold seperate. The idea is for an active shooter situation. It's a clever idea actually.
This us good to be awear of things like this, however its still not going to affect the way we police. More ever this shows how far we are behind on training and awareness. All the departments training will soon be from youtube. Unbelievable !
Wow... Will be using much greater caution when stopping someone with a book bag! This shit is scary with G8 around the corner.Funny thing about G8, no logistics done on where to house mass arrestees. A need of a secure room for thousands of people, while providing food, accessable water, and toilets.
More reasons why we need more firepower. The department has its head up their rear when it comes to combat, weapons, and 1950 type officer safety tactics. Back; Sir. Please Sir. Excuse me Sir. Sir; there was once a time when fathers made their kids call them Sir. In my life time Chicago will be lost to high crime and drugs. We lost most of the South Side. How I'm looking forward to retirement. Have fun kids its been a blast. The good times on this job are gone along with the good bosses.
They better start making a duffel bag so it can fit around my belly. The backpack vest doesn't cover much. All hipe! Nothing to worry about sports fans! Put some sweat in at the range. If they care about us. let us get some practice ammo and range time. With court, late arrests and working special who has time. 24/7 Police.
I played the video and found the flaw. The head is exposed. Clean head shot does the trick. NO MAJOR!
This thing has been out for a few years. Saw it at a firearms show. I guess the department never looks into new technology where firearms is concerned. With civilian carry across the country they have lots of concealed clothing on the market. I've even seen a bra holster for the Ruger LCP. Check out the NRA store for that. About five different companies making built in holsters in pants. The public is arming them selves and across the country police departments are down sizing. Get the picture. Its every man for them selves.
Kung Fu Joe said; when he reaches for that parchet cord, kick him dead in his teeth. Now the department does not authorize kicks but this is a life saving moment. With the force of the kick and weight of his backpack on his back he will land on his @$$. Deal with CR# later. Thanks for that great tip; Kung Fu Joe.
There is also suit cases that are full ballistic tarps. The department is behind the equipment curve. The Mexico government uses the ballistic site case.
G8 is coming and how many of them will have backpacks. I hope the company starts making pink for the ladies. CSI GUY

***POP***POP***Two men were shot and killed this morning as they sat in a vehicle stopped at a traffic light in the Rogers Park neighborhood, Chicago police said.The 26-year-old driver and 27-year-old passenger were each shot at about 12:46 a.m., causing the vehicle they were riding in to strike a tree in the 7600 block of North Sheridan Road, police said, citing early reports.------------------------Not sure if they had back packs though?

Whats next streaking with only your belt, gun and holster.1/23/2012 12:41:00 AMIt's like you are looking through the window....directly into my soul.
The department forgot to mention about those homemade backpacks. Where the guy pulls the cord and it goes BOOM! Game over! Who is putting this crap out. Let's cover all the possibilities. I know the Superintendent bog guy will come on and try to answer a few guys remarks with; what do you want, you would be happy no matter what they did. Well I would be happy if we had a new mayor and superintendent.
How about a pillow and a blanket with my backpack so I can sleep batter in the squad car at night. ;)
Department is spinning out of control. To many episodes of "Get Smart". The only problem were not a comedy show.
1/23/2012 12:10:00 AMI think the message here is for the G8/NATO summits, not the street corner.
What about the Sons of Guns / Red Jacket, Lunch Box Gun. Where are we going with this.
No way that flap will go over my big fat head.
OFF SUBJECT:SCC, did you see this?http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/01/23/sun-times-to-quit-making-endorsements/#respond"Today, newspapers’ goal is to appear to the widest readership they can with unbiased news coverage."Yeah I almost choked on my bagel. But if they can be unbiased toward politicians, maybe they can work their way towards us?
If I ever saw someone try to deploy one of those backpacks I might think they were trying to detonate a backpack with explosives and accidentally shoot them!-oops
How many of those kevlar hoodies from a few years back have been recovered?
Travis Bickel should have had one of these!
This has been on most the other activiist websites for a while, they want everyone to be prepared to fight and win against the CPD
This is totally unrelated, but did anyone see the article in today paper about alderman Beales daughter getting free scholarship.. this to the son of a bitch that thinks our perks are unfair... hack that SOB... sum of the earth
How much money and to whom does a company need to pay to push its product via department outlets? I didn't know the CPD was accepting advertising now. Maybe some enterprising labor attorney can get some ad space on the daily bulletin and help a brother out.
OT , ald beale makes over $110,000 a year and his kid scores a free ride to U of I , wouldn't ya think , ald beal would want scholarship to go to a needy CPS Honor Roll student , it's not the chicago wayrev jj jr behind in child support another fine example for the youth of America , how to be a good baby daddy , kids have no role models
I just retired and do not have access to a PDT. What do you mean it came across the PDT? Is the city pushing this or is someone sending a message to all the PDT's?
Backpack armor? Yawn.. We had a guy in 025 who had this fanny pack that held a pistol and handcuffs. It also had a foldout top to put around your neck (bright orange) that said police so the cops knew who you are.
THe bs message made it sound like like every shitbird will be sporting this. Baggy pants and pistol in waistband, nothing else. What kind of tactical idiot from HQ thought this might be used by our local garbage on the corner? I don't remember last time somebody got arrested with pistol and holster. 1/23/2012 12:10:00 AMThat "Tactical Idiot" at 35th street is some Chicken Little punk with about 7 years on, 5 of them are probably at 35th St. All he does is surf the internet, and get the same paycheck you and I do. Now he gets to post Admin Messages, and waste our time as he cries "The sky is falling, the sky is falling."
Jody Weis is talking and JerseyShore and the Raccoon 9.5 won't be happy.News stories here from Chicago Crime Commission boss, Jody Weis, where he says the last 4 months murder numbers from 2011 showed a trend in the WRONG direction due to gangs. Gee, it almost sounds like Weis is saying HIS ideas to run the CPD were more effective than the McGoof who is currently in charge... 2 Weis stories at: http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/local&id=8515203Wait till January's numbers are finalized. We already know that we're WAY OVER last years January total. Are we still counting 'inside' and 'outside' homicides? Is Jody?
All call message every two to for hours...Sounds like shameless self promotion to me. Some exempt or high ranked politician just doing their part to use the citywide as an advertising medium/campaign to get the word out on a product they're directly vested in or trying to appease the vendor who has heavily greased their pockets for the service.
Way to many steps involved to be viable.
And for the hundreth fuckin time...The Fuckin camera is on!
Is it true or is my partner pulling my chain, do tact teams have to do freaking foot patrol? Please tell me this is a joke
OTThere will be a "Prayer Vigil" in front of 26th & Cal at noon on the 26th of Jan, the with a real rev, Father Dan Brandt. Chicago Police officer need to bring attention, media and otherwise, to the trail of Lamar Cooper. Cooper killed Officer Nate Taylor. CPD officers are looking for Justice and asking the Good Lord to aid officers in their fight against crime and/or evil. This previously convicted felon should be found guilty and never sees the outside of a jail cell as long as he is on the face of God's green earth. We will never forget. Stay safe.
I have a question about Comp Stat and what is happening within our department. Over the weekend, we had a Chicago Police Commander passaway in New York who was there for comp stat training by the New York police Department. Four questions. Did all the commanders attend this meeting because my commander was in the station over the weekend? Does this mean only a certain amount of commanders attended because changes are coming? And why are we sending people to New York for training? Isn't that wahat McCarththy and his crew from New York are here for? Just wondering, and God rest the Commander.
Say it aint so finally changes have come to the 7th district!!!
Funny thing about G8, no logistics done on where to house mass arrestees. A need of a secure room for thousands of people, while providing food, accessable water, and toilets.Word has it the Sheriffs Department will be right along side us for G8. It will be Sheriffs Deputies and not Corrections and the Sheriffs Dept will be keeping the Criminal Courts 26th/Cal open 24hrs for a lock-up/processing arrests and bondcourt. We'll take all the help we can get on this one.
New command changes happening as we text.stay tuned
If Leo's really gone to 007, who's gonna be in charge of Gangs? Is this a demotion or a promise for future glory if he turns 007 around?
I still keep my off duty pistol up my ass. Great retention, no better concealment and the lube prevents rust. Now if I get scared and need to shit a brick, I'll shit firepower. It's a win-win any way you look at it. The Stash
Not very practical. The coverage area of the vest is rather small.You would do better to simply buy the newest & lightest body armorto wear under the shirt, and weara paddle holster to conceal a pistol or revolver on your waist.You can buy nylon ammo or magazinepouches that hug the body close under the shirt too. That would bea much more practical setup thanthe 'backpack' ensemble.
That might mess up my hair. - hairgel police
Cool if only available to law enforcement! Let the bad guy/gal have access, not cool!
It's like you are looking through the window....directly into my soul.1/23/2012 05:25:00 AMdon't make me spank you.
Stach , thank you for you gun retension tip. I also found that when I bend over and fart , I am a marksman. Is the line ready?

I keep hearing about tact teams doing foot patrol. I work tact, we do foot patrol on our own accord. It's especially effective in plain clothes. Try it, it might work for you. We've caught delivery cases, multiple pistol cases and bunch of other shit doing it. Plus stretches the legs a little.
Went to Gat Guns yesterday and found that there were clases beginning for Utah and Florida Concealed Carry Permits. Evidentally You DO NOT have to reside in those states to obtain these permits. Yes you can actually live in Illinois get a Utah permit but cant carry in Utah because you are not a resident of that state but can carry concealed in Wisconsin, because WI allows Utah permits. WTF wonder what other loop holes are with FL and other states.
Where do we stash the super soaker?
I have a 8" barreled Ar-15 in mine.
