How Goes the War?

  • The intersection looks like countless others on the Northwest Side.

    Lots of trees, well-kept frame homes, a plant-filled traffic circle.

    But there’s also a street sign spray-painted with a blue pitchfork — the symbol of the Maniac Latin Disciples.

    It’s Barry and Spaulding. “B.S.” for short. The gang members who call it their turf, however, have a new name for the neighborhood surrounding B.S.

    “It’s like the Bermuda Triangle,” one high-ranking gang member told the Chicago Sun-Times. “As long as you fly around it, you’re OK. But the minute you drive in there, you get sucked in [by the police.]”

The article goes on to quote all sorts of anonymous and even "ranking gang members" who claim the heat is so bad on them that they can't even sell dope in the hood anymore. Boo-freaking-hoo.

Here's a truly odd quote though - we hear this far more among cops and the law abiding citizens than gang bangers. In fact, we can't ever remember this coming up among the criminal set:

  • Maniac Latin Disciples members are now under gang orders to keep violence to a minimum because of the police crackdown, the ranking member said. Still, they’re continuing to arm themselves for self-defense, he said.

    “Everybody’s toting a gun,” he said. “I’d rather be judged by 12 than carried by six. You can’t disarm because you’re vulnerable.”

Go read it and venture an opinion here. The stats say crime is down, but the people talking to Frank claim everyone is running around armed to the teeth. Something doesn't ring true to our ears, but maybe we're just cynical.

So you have everyone tooled up and constantly getting stopped so where's all the uuw pinches? Plus the big claim in the article is the thousands of contact cards that were generated. Is that what policing has become here? What a joke.

Criminals not caring if they get busted with a gun cause they're criminals, but I'm afraid of carrying a gun to protect my family and myself because I don't want to be convicted of a criminal act. Figure that out and get back to me you asshole politicians who want to protect this filth at the expense of the law abiding taxpayers. Sickening. Not a cop.

Emmanuel, with careless indifference to the lives and safety of the citizens, said yes to this mess. Emmanuel, with full knowledge of the disruption, mayhem and crime that this convention would bring said bring it to Chicago."

I am rooting for a very violent and destructive G8. Gangs are just like city hall, they prey on the weak.
While police are pre-occupied gangs will come out and re-invent themselves with a vengence while 3000 disgruntled and vilified police look on.L A U G H I N G.

Somewhat Off Topic:
Posted as a comment in the Sun-Times on the story:

"Chicago Police horses will also get riot gear for NATO/G8 summits
BY FRAN SPIELMAN City Hall Reporter"

Replay as follows:

Only two malignant narcissists, Rahm and BHO could think that inviting disaster to Chicago could have any good. Will they will be able to show off Chicago to the visiting dignitaries or will they be bottled up between McCormick Place and their hotels surrounded by rioters. Unlike the Olympics the Chicago Citizens never got a chance to say we didn't want this. G8/NATO will bring an invading army, not swarms tourists.

The RIOTERS goal is to have a thrill as they cause as much chaos and cost taxpayers as money as possible. Then go back where they came from and brag how they injured (maybe even killed) or maimed police officers and left their mark on the city and history. These RIOTERS will come with weapons aimed at police horses that will include razor knives to cut reins, marbles to throw under their hooves, stun guns and chemical sprays. RIOTERS will be in cahoots with lawyers to sue the city.

Stay Safe. Thanks Rahm and BHO for bringing Chicago disaster. Remember this on Election Day.

Oh, well, now that I read the comments & re-read the article, while I would love to believe this is true, it just doesn't add up.

Like a bunch of other said, gangmembers would never speak to the press in this manner, also, would never discuss "orders" to reduce violence, or whether they "tote" weapons.

Damnit, I should have known it was too good to be true. But it is nice to dream . . .

Well, like any other citizen these mopes need to defend themselves, right? Sure, they're defending themselves against other mopes with guns who are gunning for them because they compete for illegal profits of the drug craze. But it seems logical enough: The "better judged by 12 than carried by 6" idea applies to regular citizens who want to carry a gun or keep one in their home as well. One argument pro-CC people always make is that individuals have an absolute and unalienable constitutional right to defend themselves with a gun. That right would apply to everyone, including these guys, if we want to be logical about it. The problem today is that in Illinois and Chicago, only cops and gangsters have guns.

Fact check!

“Police say the Shakespeare police district.. has seen a dramatic decrease in shootings. Between Jan. 9 and Feb. 5, for example, there weren’t any shootings in the district, compared to seven for the same period of 2011, police said.”

Hey, Gar! Let's take a look at 014 aggbat/handgun and homicide/handgun totals between January 9 and Feb 5 since 2007:

2011: 6 (Not 7. 4 aggbat, 2 homicide)
2010: 3 (no homicide)
2009: 1 (no homicide)
2008: 0 (no homicide)
2007: 2 + 1 shooting homicide

We can pull up method of deaths in homicides before 2007, so let's go with just aggbat/handgun totals for the next 6 years...

2006: 2
2005: 2
2004: 2
2003: 17
2002: 10
2001: 10

So, to summarize, shootings in 014 during the period cited nosedived in 2004 and floated between 0 and 3 per year for the next 7 years. Last year, they spiked to an 8-year-high and now they're back to the normal zone.

Whoop-T-Do. You're a magician Oh, and, yeah. There was a homicide/handgun on 05 Feb this year.

Is there any district that awards hard working officers?


Not in 007 that's for sure. You make a gun arrest there and instead of taking an early duck you're told to go back out and get another one. Sgt. Big Head is notorious for that. Talk about an unappreciative asshole. That's what happens when you're given stripes instead of earning them.

Then there's Bubblehead, what a piece of crap this guy is. This guy loves to fuck with coppers because he's a miserable human being. A commander will never be successful in 007 unless Bubblehead is gone.

You want change in 007 then start with the bosses. Replace the assholes with bosses that actually take care of their guys. Happy coppers are productive coppers. It's really not that difficult.

Almost forgot one more thing. Fuck you Rahm.

Is there any district that awards hard working officers? The last time I got a gun arrest, the supervisor didn't say "good job," or "go home when your done with the paper. " I got a sarcastic remark "your still milking that arrest?" I wanted to punch him in the face. Instead, I milked the shit out of that paper. I have heard promises made to award guys who come in with activity only to be broken by shipping those same officers to midnights. I am sure this has been going on for years but WTF! I am tired of the favorite do nothings being taken care of...........Anyone got any solutions other than don't come in with (activity) shit?

If you haven't learned that in this climate the very best advice anyone CAN give you, is "Don't come in with shit," then you just don't get it yet. 1st and 16th. You will never be promoted on this job. You will never be 'taken care of' again--the old CPD is dead. Mourn it, get over it, and move on, or find another job. Living in the past is a waste of time. And whining about it makes you look like a puss. Either 'man up' or STFU.

"Most of the chaps have resorted to furnishing themselves with various firearms" said the ranking MLD leader. "Indeed, necessity dictated that I purloin Papa's matching set of Purdeys in order to ensure an adequate measure of defence for myself and my chums."

Some of the commenters here didn't seem to understand Frank Main's article. While he quoted a whiny gangbanger, he did so in a way that let everyone see that the whiny gangbanger has been forced to change at least temporarily by the police. The article is a tribute to police. Nothing he wrote suggests he sympathizes with gangbangers who are feeling the heat. You might note that he ended the article with praise from a neighbor.
