Uh...A Lot of People Got Shot

  • At least 10 people were killed, including a 6-year-old girl, in shootings over the weekend in Chicago.

    The slain were among at least 49 people wounded in shootings from 5 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday, according to information compiled by the Chicago Tribune.


At the Tribune link
, Mc(insert insult here) says he and his crack staff was able to "connect the dots" between shootings that occurred and then a few hours later, the retaliatory shooting. Color us underwhelmed. Any asshole with a basic knowledge of street gang territories can draw a line from Point A to Point B after a shooting occurs. We went through two-years-plus of the Crystal Ball Unit that was supposed to use Deputy Officer Chief Goldfinger's magic restaurant reservation system to "predict" crimes, especially Aggravated Batteries.

After two years and a few million dollars, the number of shootings predicted by the downtown eggheads stood at exactly ZERO. Oh, they claimed at least one accurate prediction, but if you gather info on one shooting in the Insane Assholes territory, then draw a "box" about a mile-and-a-half square on the border between the Insane Assholes and the Unknown Assmunchers, you're going to get a hit in a few days, but that doesn't actually prevent the shooting.

Rahm, who hasn't been heard from all weekend as the bodies piled up, is outraged after MSNBC.com broke the news embargo and pointed out the bloodbath on city streets:

  • The city of Chicago will step up efforts to combat gang violence in light of a bloody weekend in which 10 people were killed and 39 shooting victims were wounded, Mayor Rahm Emanuel vowed Monday.

    “The violence this past weekend is unacceptable to me and every law-abiding Chicago resident,” Emanuel said. “ Our streets belong to the families and children of our city; not to the gangs and gangbangers.

    “The violence this weekend underscores that Chicago has a unique gang problem, and I have discussed with Supt. [Garry] McCarthy a citywide anti-gang strategy similar to the successful strategy CPD recently used with the Maniac Latin Disciples.”

    Chicago police officers arrested more than 1,800 members of the Maniac Latin Disciples gang from last June through the end of February, after McCarthy declared war on them for shooting and wounding two young girls by mistake at a Northwest Side park in June.

Which proved exactly what? There are still hundreds of MLD's around. One of them even designed the recently canceled city sticker if we recall. And since we're retired, we'll reveal that little Herbie had a record any gangster would be envious of - and in each case, was a self-admitted gang banger and proud of that fact. The word "unrepentant" comes to mind.

And the interview the mother of the dead child gave to the media. She rightfully calls the killers animals, but neglects to mention the intended target of the shooting, her boyfriend, has a gang history and an extensive record. Combined with the gang colors/insignia visible at the sidewalk memorial, we can only think, "Pot, meet kettle."

That "animal" tag cuts both ways and a child paid the price.

no it wasnt!!!!! the girl got shot and responding officers saw the guys walking a block away after ditching the hot car. What a lie! They didnt connect anything! It was pure luck of responding officers seeing these two idiots walking around right after the shooting. I hate the lies! He is taking away all credit from the arresting officers and saying that they are the reason the offenders are in custody. bullshit all the way

I would say that the atmosphere on the department would change if the supe was replaced but I don't even think that would help. I glanced through the exempt list and can't find one person that would inspire the troops to go out and go the extra mile anymore. Sure we are dangerously short officers. But if there was a positive vibe given out starting from the top I think that the majority of Pos would want to go out and work harder in order to pick up the slack. Most Pos have worked through bad bosses, terrible work environments and went out and got the job done period. Now with inept bosses running around not knowing what to do we basically have a rudderless ship that shows no signs of getting back on course anytime soon.

wrt: "Chicago police officers arrested more than 1,800 members of the Maniac Latin Disciples gang from last June through the end of February, after McCarthy declared war on them for shooting and wounding two young girls by mistake at a Northwest Side park in June."

What does it prove?

-----------------

Exactly!!

Out of the 1,800 arrested how many were charged and convicted and are currently serving time?

More importantly how many civil liberty suits are in the pipe against the city from it?

Who we kidding here?

The city can make the arrest number any number they like. We seen how they work and how the media is at their beckon call to parrot the PR's without question.

Case in point is the 911 response time reduction non-sense. Oh the numbers were down all right when you compare them to handling calls in a record snow storm that paralyzed the city for days.

It's an embarrassment to watch. Like that Iraqi Minister of Information comical ali talking about no US troops in Baghdad.

Comstat works!! No really it does! Trust me! Just let me fudge the numbers a second...

Ok weather was cold but crime was downs because we are gang obliterating geniuses with compstat being the biggest reason foe the reduction of crime..

Weather was unseasonalbly warm and thats the reason why crime was up NOT because comstat is useless...

Ok yes we know it was proven to be a scam in NY but here it really works!

See you get numbers, throw them at Commanders at the meetings in a condescending manner. They will work at trying to address those stats then BAM!!! At the next meeting throw some different useless stat at them and ask them what they did about it ( again in a condescending manner).

If that doesn't work than you say oh we now know why it didn't work last time but truly the compstat gods have shown us the true way to retool and fix the problem!!!

Taken from a SlumTimes article regarding the weekend's bloodletting:

Beat cops and gang officers have been meeting over maps to chart the turf and membership of gangs in the district, McCarthy said. That information will be merged with gang intelligence from the police department’s existing databases, he said.

The detailed information about gang membership will be available to officers in their beat cars, McCarthy said.

--------------------------------

Bullshit. I challenge you to find even ONE beat copper whose knowledge has been tapped for 'intelligence'. Furthermore, the way this reads, it sounds like these make-believe meetings between beat cops and gang officers were in direct response to this weekend's 'extracurricular' gang activities. Pray tell, just when and where did all this information sharing take place? Because this is the first time anybody I know has heard about it.

And how exactly is this freshly gleaned 'detailed information' going to find it's way into beat cars? It sure as hell won't be via PDTs seeing that 80-90% of patrol vehicles don't have a PDT; the ones that do grace the interior of a car are used for tables seeing that they seldom work.

This is nothing more than another helping of smoke and mirrors, Windy City style. Too bad for Rahm, Garry and the rest of the bozos at Fort Fellatio that the public seems to be slowly getting the message about what is REALLY going on.

They want our city to burn so that the President can impose martial law and maybe even delay the elections. Rahm is here to insure that happens by keeping the police department understaffed so that this summer it is overwhelmed by the violence in the ghettos. Then when the President sends in the troops and brutally suppresses the ghettos he will be seen as a savior of the country – willing to use force even against his own people.

The useful idiots are always the first victims of the socialist tyrants.

When things get really crazy we’ll suddenly see the press change its tactics and they’ll promote us as heroes while embellishing the violence instead of hiding it.

Most of the people will fall for the trick and begin to think the world of our tyrant president – they’ll think him the great savor of the country.

The president just issued a new Executive Order dealing with martial law last Sunday.

There are almost never random victims of these shootings, the children that get shot are almost always related to the targets. The only ones that think these are innocent bystanders are the pimple headed reporters.

I recall an "accidental" shooting in Cabrini some years ago. Just some kid, randomly hit. The kid was shot in retaliation. He was related to the man they wanted to send a message to.

But there are no more beat cops to get the information! There is only zone officers and the non zone officers. And compstat does works, not a single homicide occured in the VRZ's (violence reduction zone),which is the new strategy de jour. Now all we need is 10000 more officers and we can take this strategy citywide!!

"Second chance . . .

"Sneed has learned Herbie Pulgar, the 15-year-old kid whose award-winning Chicago city sticker design was yanked amidst allegations of gang signs in his art, is getting another chance.

"To wit: “I hired him to design a T-shirt,” said former Fox News producer Jason Erkes, who runs Chicago Sport & Social Club.

"$$$$: “I called Herbie’s mom weeks ago when he was still bummed out due to all the controversy. The shirt will be given out to 20,000 of our spring participants. And he’ll be compensated, but he signed on not thinking he’d get a dime. I think the kid totally got shafted.”
