Greektown Brawl

This was posted on YouTube on New Years Eve.

We aren't sure if it was shot then or earlier:



Anyone from 012 want to fill us in? Just looks like another out-of-control wilding.

Nice. I don't think I recognize anyone from the Greek Town neighborhood. I wounder how many arrests and I observed open fighting we the police on the scene. A total lack of respect for their fellow man and any authority. RESPECT MY AUTHORITY! So much for the movies were the police show up and everyone stops and puts their hands behind their back. Its a new error no one respects the police. The government helped make it this way. Be safe my friends and stay thirsty.

That area of Greek Town is such a late night ghetto mess. It's nothing but thugs after about midnight. Don't go anywhere near that area late night and especially on a weekend night. They should really restrict the hours those restaurants can operate. They bring down the whole neighborhood and bring in nothing but trouble.

Effective immediately all officers will be given a 5 hour "jump ball" training course. Upon arrival to a scene such as this an officer will shout "jump ball" and toss a department issued basketball into the crowd. Once peace is restored A.N.O.V.'s will be issued. The city expects police officer trr's to drop by 15%-20% and 1 million in generated revenue. There are even whispers that if the idea comes to fruition the company in charge of the parking meters, Chicago Parking Meters LLC, has expressed interest in paying the city for the rights to lease the program.

...and a pathetic job of handling that BS inside of the restaurant by the police. Pushing and shoving a bunch of violent MFs inside the place who won't cool down and leave the place quickly? There should have been a wagon or two full of them, on their way to central lockup. Why shove a bunch of violent, possibly drunken young people out of the restaurant who fail to follow your lawful command to cease the BS out into the street, where they can only once again gather to fight? No plan, no leadership. Kind of like the same thing that existed at the first Taste of Chicago under the Weis regime, only with even fewer officers.

I do feel for the Officers though, thanks to the down-sizing of our once strong Department, these Officers were greatly out numbered. Thank God (yeah I said it) that the violence didnt turn on the Police.

Be safe out there! 2012 may be a rough year for us all. If the pension is taken away, it will be up for grabs, with no Police response Im sure..... BACK EACH OTHER UP!!!!!

I get to often visit Chicago. There are places in downtown Chicago that I would like to visit but don't for fear that the natives might screw with me. Not out of fear mind you, but out of caution.

After TSA called the cops at Midway on me for walking away from a TSA employee who accosted me (mind you I was on the non sterile side of the checkpoint at the time)my opinion of the airport cops dropped even lower than it was before. Figured I was lucky that they didn't just shoot me.

Just judging from the general demeanor/physical appearance that airport duty is reserved for those who are approaching retirement or are on light duty.

Officer Thomas you were very unprofessional that day. I wish that I could have followed up on the complaints I had against you.

The police strategy should be to contain the problem and then lock-up every last person. How about using handcuffs to bolt the door until reenforcements arrive. The crowed will have no energy left to fight. They will have used it on them selves and not law enforcement. Bolt the doors call wagons and ambulances.

This is yet another example of why these motherfuckers get NOTHING from me above bare minimum. NO arrests unless on signed complaints. I go thru the motions and nothing more. They can sell dope on every fucking corner in the ghettos, I don't live there. They can blast 'gangsta rap' all night from cars on summer nights when the windows are open, I don't live there. They can shoot the shit out of one another while the playground down the street is full of kids, my kids aren't in that park. Oh, they stole the 'sounds' out of your car? Gee whiz, that's horrible, here's your report. Junior be 'disrepectin" Momma? Too fucking bad, I aint the Baby Daddy, 2-P. You flagged me down to call you an ambulance because you swallowed a bug riding that bike? No ambulance, but here's an ANOV for riding a bike on the sidewalk/inconveniencing me with total bullshit while I was enroute to coffee.

I do nothing but go thru the motions and write enough Parker's & ANOVS a month to be able to work SE. Otherwise, these bastards get what they deserve....NOTHING.

"Proactive" is an acne medication hawked on late night infomercials. Let these bastards police themselves. 1st & the 16th is the name of the game, folks. And to all you citizens that hate the police now - you ain't seen NOTHING yet. If our pensions are fucked with even minutely, you'd best learn hope to fight and shoot a gun because the only safe places will be the neighborhoods where the police live

I live a couple blocks from where this occurred. Whoever's knocking cops from 12th, you're wrong. I've lived in 12th for past 10 years-the police presence/response here has been exceptional. Maybe you should focus on bankrolling Supes who come here from out of state to whore themselves to mayor. Or greedy Greektown biz owners inviting crime. We get one nightclub closed after a couple murders/brain matter spattered on our sidewalks (Lake St.)and look where it got us. Animals know the 12th is moving/CPD's undermanned and they're in midst of reclaiming this area as their hood. After dark, it feels a lot like the crappy West side it once was.
For this reason I'm moving out of WL. But as I've recently searched for safer neighborhood to move to, I can't seem to find an area that hasn't had the same ghetto trash ruining it. Where is it safe anymore in Chicago?

You're right, for officer safety sake it would have been better to keep all those fools fighting INSIDE the enclosed space.

What's needed is a LEADER like you to rally the troops. Your inspired words will make up for the fact the CPD is outnumbered and losing 500+ to retirement every year.

This kind of incident isn't new. What is new is the small number of police officers available to handle it.

A few years back at least one wagon and several cars would have been able to respond. Several brawlers would have been abruptly cuffed and thrown into a wagon. Peace would have been restored in 3 minutes and the rest of the citizens would have been safe to enjoy their night.

Now we have no wagons. There were only a few lone coppers out there worried about the mob turning on them and the rest of the good citizens were put in harms way.

But we can all sleep well at night knowing that we are politically correct. That's worth the cost of our freedom to live safely isn't it?

What was there punishment ? I saw mob action , reckless conduct and at least d.c. In the store. I bet a few , if arrested, would of have had drugs and or weapons on them. You now have taught them that we the police our pussies. Because of your non action, some police officer is going to get hurt because they have NO FEAR of us. I have over 20 years on this job and was discussed at what I saw. You dont have to beat some one to lock them up., so dont use a c.r number as an excuse! They do this over there, as your officer said, all the time. That is because they know nothing will happen. Wake up, if this is a problem, park in front of the place and take control . You don't need a sgt or higher rank to tell you how to be police. Do your job and take back that street from these ass holes, the life you save may be you own .

Seemed to me that the guy filming was afraid of being locked up for filming the police, not that he's trying to specifically catch the police doing something wrong. He probably figured, and rightly so, that he risked arrest or an officer "accidentally" dropping his phone if they saw him filming, that's why he kept asking his buddy to keep an eye out.

Hey 012 Sgts and Lts - it is on you guys to end this for your troops. Every one of these incidents should have paper dropped on them. Unknown victim(s), unknown offender(s) and a business license investigation. Make sure to include the name, address, and business license information of the restaurant and bars/clubs where the incident(s) occurred or where it stemmed from. After several documented incidents the establishment can be hit by the City and will be forced into court/administrative licensing hearing. You’re giving the businesses a break when they are contributing to the problem. Yes, it is the savages who cannot conduct themselves according to our acceptable social standards but the business are, as typical just shrugging their shoulders and trying to reap the rewards, while just using the police as their private security force. The cops will get rid of the trouble makers after the business get all of the money. Well, if they want to stay open they will have to hire security. This is both the clubs and the restaurants. Name them both and then set the action into motion to get their licenses revoked. It's a process, but it will start with them having to get some control over their patrons or be shut down. Stop being lazy and blowing it off as an every weekend ordeal that you just need to get through! Step up and do the right thing. Get these places in line and the savages won't have as much of an opportunity. I know doing the paper is a pain in the ass, it’s all bullshit, these savages don’t deserve it, the business aren’t the problem the savages are… there are a dozen or more excuses. Do the paper and hit the businesses. They cater to the savage and reap the rewards at the expense of the police—at the expense of your troops. Wake up! There is a way to handle this so do it.

That is sad that it looks like there are only a couple police there with all that mayhem. I agree with the post that there should have been a wagon there and multiple arrests. I won't Monday morning quarterback because I don't know what else was going on in the district that there weren't enough police to handle this situation. We need more police period. It appears those coppers on the scene couldn't handle all of those people alone.

So sad to see this many young professionals act out of character... right, mary mitchell? I bet, probably, just maybe, if the police weren't there to escalate this particular incident and abuse their powers against the 1's at every chance they allegedly get, things would have remained calm and these young professionals would have remained in their seats, chewing on their gyros, with their mouths closed. Keeping table conversations to a respectable level in between bites as to not annoy those around them, all the while thinking about their jobs, and how they can better themselves/families and the companies they work for. (long sigh)

So when the Section 8 house is on your block and this is on your street while your kids are outside playing you can 19-p that. Its too late to take any action then. We need to check their attitude where they live, because if we have to do it on our turf then its too late. Take them to jail for reckless conduct and/or disorderly conduct.

From What The Video Shows, The Police Really Dropped The Ball On This One. Some of those inside the restaurant, should have been arrested, and cuffed. The rest dispersed, with the threat of arrest.
Once they got outside, it was a free for all.
Yes, sometimes you have to tell the lockup and desk crew to go take a flying jump. We have to make arrests, even on New Year's Eve.

...and a pathetic job of handling that BS inside of the restaurant by the police. Pushing and shoving a bunch of violent MFs inside the place who won't cool down and leave the place quickly? There should have been a wagon or two full of them, on their way to central lockup. Why shove a bunch of violent, possibly drunken young people out of the restaurant who fail to follow your lawful command to cease the BS out into the street, where they can only once again gather to fight? No plan, no leadership. Kind of like the same thing that existed at the first Taste of Chicago under the Weis regime, only with even fewer officers.

1/04/2012 01:34:00 AM

That is your interpertation. No arrests mean no beefs and no excessive force complaints. Let them fight in the street. Who cares so long as the offciers are not hurt. No more proactive policing.

King fled in a 4,000 pound vehicle with speeds of over 100 mph without any respect for human life and did not comply with any of the officers commands to lay down once his vehicle was curbed while high on narcotics, and no mention of the passanger who complied with the officers. our country will see more and more of this type of behavior. the media will always look for a reason why the savages act as they do. just like when they run down the street with a big screen t.v. just removed from a home. the media reports that the savages must be hungry. that is why they stole the t.v.

I live a couple blocks from where this occurred. Whoever's knocking cops from 12th, you're wrong. I've lived in 12th for past 10 years-the police presence/response here has been exceptional. Maybe you should focus on bankrolling Supes who come here from out of state to whore themselves to mayor. Or greedy Greektown biz owners inviting crime. We get one nightclub closed after a couple murders/brain matter spattered on our sidewalks (Lake St.)and look where it got us. Animals know the 12th is moving/CPD's undermanned and they're in midst of reclaiming this area as their hood. After dark, it feels a lot like the crappy West side it once was. For this reason I'm moving out of WL. But as I've recently searched for safer neighborhood to move to, I can't seem to find an area that hasn't had the same ghetto trash ruining it. Where is it safe anymore in Chicago?

This is why are department is a joke . these bastards created such a disturbance and no one went to jail? This is why it won't stop. You balless lazy jag bags! There is NO excuse not to have a least a dozen of these ass wipes in cuffs. I tell you this if I have to fly down a street , to back your ass up , someone is going to jail! What was there punishment ? I saw mob action , reckless conduct and at least d.c. In the store. I bet a few , if arrested, would of have had drugs and or weapons on them. You now have taught them that we the police our pussies. Because of your non action, some police officer is going to get hurt because they have NO FEAR of us. I have over 20 years on this job and was discussed at what I saw. You dont have to beat some one to lock them up., so dont use a c.r number as an excuse! They do this over there, as your officer said, all the time. That is because they know nothing will happen. Wake up, if this is a problem, park in front of the place and take control . You don't need a sgt or higher rank to tell you how to be police. Do your job and take back that street from these ass holes, the life you save may be you own .

The video cut off, we don't know if anyone went to jail or not. This does happen all the time down there on the weekend. Unfortunately one of the Greek restaurants (Parthenon) rents their place out on the weekends after 10 pm for "thug life parties" they've been written up numerous times, all of which is pending. There is also Plush on Madison, same clientele, same problem, a homicide occurred outside last winter; the Victor Hotel at Fulton and Sangamon, same clientele, 5 shot 2 dead last week; Dragonfly restaurant at Randolph-Green, rents their place out on the weekend after 10 pm, same clientele, same problems. There is alot of problems down there on the weekends and a skeleton midnight crew to handle it. If you try to lock eveyone up all the cars would be down.. let them kill each other and don;t rush in to large fights! wait for help!
