Not One Shooting Sunday? (UPDATE)

That can't be right, can it?

If you page through the Tribune, Sun Times and Breaking News websites, there isn't one mention of a single shooting from Sunday morning onward. The last story of any shooting is the Breaking News story about 25 wounded, one dead that originally appeared Saturday morning and was updated with new totals Sunday morning. The Sun Times does a basic rehashing of the same story yesterday prior to noon.

Maybe Sunday was 100% peaceful? Everyone was at church? At picnics? Maybe it was too hot to go our and avenge your buddy's wounding the night before? That lends an illusion of self control to the gangs that we've seldom seen before.

Or maybe someone told the papers to knock it off? Graze wounds, idiots creasing their own limbs with bullets and attempted shootings won't be reported as much. Wouldn't be the first time.

UPDATE: There it is, posted after we finished up for the morning:
  • A 35-year-old man was fatally wounded and at least eight others were injured in separate overnight shootings across the city.

    The shootings, which occurred between late Sunday and this morning, continued a streak of shootings that occurred during the warm Memorial Day weekend. So far this year, the city has had more homicides and shooting incidents than during the same period last year, according to the most recent citywide crime statistics.

"a streak of shootings." Impressive.

Your right wouldn't be the first time.. I was born and raised in Chicago and let me tell you that seldom was there ever a shooting or killing in the Bridgeport area of the city and IF the papers reported on them they were reported on ONCE and disappeared.. to bad the residents of Bridgeport KNEW better.. we were all aware of them being covered up and swept under the rug.. so it's business as usual for the newspapers in the city..

By my totals 17 shot on Sunday, 7 of them in 011. With 11 more starting at midnight to 0800 monday morning. The blackberry was ringing all night. 2 of the "victims" dead so far.
The city should embrace all the violence and make it a tourist attraction. See if you can come to Chicago and make it out alive! Have tour buses go through the ghetto and stop at all the crime scenes. Get your picture with the body! Only 20 bucks. Better make it 30, 10 goes to the alderman of the ward the body is in. That way the visitors can get a small taste of how business is conducted in Chicago. As a special treat you may also get robbed at gun point during your tour. And if you want to see the indigenous population acting normally in its own habitat start using your Iphones where you can be seen. But you will be charged extra if you get apple picked! End the tour with specially trade marked Chalkie shirts with all proceed going to hire some real leadership at the FOP so we don't get screwed on our contracts. And give one buck from each tour to a special fund for the kids. ITS FOR THE CHILDREN!!!

Perhaps Channel 2 can send their "ace reporter" Mike "The Pooch" Puccinelli down to cover it.

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

Yeah, not only are they "hurt" instead of "wounded" or "shot"

They are "revelers" not "terrorist" and not "gangs" or even "crew members" anymore.

Revelers -- intr.v. rev·eled also rev·elled, rev·el·ing also rev·el·ling, rev·els also rev·els. 1. To take great pleasure or delight: She reveled in her unaccustomed leisure.

via tribune...

"..A 25-year-old man was shot in the head at about 2:30 a.m. in the 1700 block of East 54th Street in the East Hyde Park neighborhood, police said. The man was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in serious condition.

Early reports indicated the shooting may have occurred among a large group of revelers all congregated in the area, police said."

-end.

Hey what's not to like about revelers? Sounds like fun. Who doesn't like having fun? I like fun. I like pleasure and delight. Don't you like fun? We should hang with the revelers so that we can have fun too. Where's the next large group of revelers going?

"...Sunday night, a woman suffered a graze wound to her head about 11 p.m. in the 1100 block of East 43rd Street in the Oakland neighborhood, police said...."

Hey it's a gaze wound to the head for crying out loud. Don't be a baby you don't need a paramedic just shake it off. Come-on get back out there and work it off. Ya-know like when your kid skins his knee playing little league. It's a graze wound that's all. ha.

So many innocent revelers out taking in the pleasure and delight. That must be why we're a World Class City it's all the revelers.

There was over 200 revelers at castaways on North Ave beach the other day too I saw them. also..

"...There were two groups involved in a verbal altercation as they crossed a bridge leading from the lake front over Lake Shore Drive, police said. People from both groups pulled out handguns and began shooting, police said. The woman, who was also walking over the bridge at the time, was caught in crossfire. Her friends took her to the hospital where she was interviewed by police..."

Lets look at a quick way to save more than $1,787,565 a year from OUR PENSION…

I have an idea, lets Immediately stop any addition Gold Star pensions. I have no problem with upper management getting additional compensation while performing their duties (LOL) but there is no reason they need to carry that additional salary into retirement. Lets face it, IT’S A BRIBE/A PAYOFF/IT’S HOW CITY HALL GETS THEM TO DO WHATEVER THEY WANT, etc.

The City now promotes bosses to gold star status that include huge salary bonuses. That carrot is held above their heads and if they play nice and do as they’re told they keep the job and the pension payout. Who suffers? Or should I say whose backs are they climbing over to make this bump in pay? Every Chicago Policeman! Every patrolman, Sgt., Lt., even Captain. You see, I don’t have a beef with the civil service ranks getting their due pension; my axe to grind is with the 65-70 gold stars that are currently working on screwing our pension.

For example…if you go to the city of Chicago’s website

https://data.cityofchicago.org/Administration-Finance/Current-Employee-Names-Salaries-and-Position-Title/xzkq-xp2w

you can view EVERY city employee’s salary. You can see what the average Lieutenant makes a year ($ 115,644), then go to your favorite Commander (who is more than likely than just a lieutenant by civil service rank and see what they make ($154,932).

Take any commander right now, they make $154,932 minus $115,644 Lt. civil service pay and we see they will receive a $39,288 pad into their pension. So, any given commander will retire making an additional $27,501 a year (70% of the 39,288). Currently CPD has 42 commanders at title code 9752. What does that mean? It means these current commanders will all be retires some day and collectively they will bleed OUR PENSION $1,155,042 a year! Also, don’t forget the guys that are above commander. I laid out some examples’ for your reading pleasure below.

Of Course we have extreme examples such as:
1st Deputy Al Wysinger’s current $188,316 salary and minus what he would be making if he was a Lieutenant $115,644 = $ 72,672 Pension pad! Now, assume he retired today. His pension would be “juiced” 70% of $72,672 thus… Al’s pension is now a whopping $50,870 more a year more than what he should be getting if he was receiving a pension at his civil service rank and don’t forget Mrs. Wysinger still makes out even when Al dies so this gravy train could go on for decades. Please note- I want and hope Al and his family enjoy his retirement and I hope he lives to be 100, but he doesn’t deserve a $50,870 bonus for playing boss for a few years.

Chief Nick Roti ($176,532) minus (Lt $115,644)= $ 60,888 Pension pad. Once again, factor in Nick is retiring maxed at 70% and then work in the $60,888 into the pension equation and Big Nick Roti is going out to pasture with an additional $42,621 a year FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE. $ 42,621 is more than many patrolmen get total.

In conclusion, we currently have 65 sworn members promoted to gold star level. Yes, some are Captains, but most are Lieutenants. Lets just pretend all 65 are commanders. 65 * $27,501 “gold star pension bonus”= $1,787,565 a year more than any of them deserve. Lets assume they live a decade- that $17,875,650 sucked from YOUR PENSION!!!

Do you want to reform the police pension/ Start by getting rid of the gold star bump none of the bosses ever want to talk about.

SO!.. We have 46 people shot and 8 of them are dead over the weekend and guess what? Police public affairs wants us to be aware that there are burglaries going on in Bronzeville... and the Top Cop still wants to know who sliced the tires on a CPD van and needs the public's help in bringing THAT person to justice.

But no we're not downplaying anything. Not at all.

No DHS investigation, no terrorism investigation, no pre-dawn preemptive raids...there's nothing to worry about. Has there even been a community alert on the shootings?

When you get to be a World Class City I guess these things are so laissez faire that even the reverends have given up marching.


Has the EPA been called yet to check on the bio-hazard from all the blood being hosed down into the sewer system? What a cesspool that's gotta be with the 97 degree heat eh.

Remember those things that we had as kids way back in the day call Snakes? I don't know if you can still get them or not.

Snakes were the size of a small button, a little thicker though and all black. You would put one of the snakes on the ground and light it with a match and it would expand rapidly pushing a pile of ashes skyward. Kind-a like a mini-exploding foaming action.

Yeah..well I waiting to see if the bacteria from all the blood starts multiplying, coming out of the sewer system like that blowing the covers off. That would be fun to watch eh?

To the guy posting about gold stars bleeding "our pension". You realize most of them have been paying into " our pension" for much longer than "us". Plus, most of them have been paying into the fund at the gold star pay scale for longer than 4 years, since most stick around longer than 4 years, ( most are younger than their former counterparts). So quit the bitching and probable jealousy and bitch about something constructive, like hiring more cops.

Channel 5 news at 10:00 on Monday. 5 minutes on some fey jerkoff who lost his dog when it bailed from the family yacht. Family crying, he went on vacation with us!! They spent about two minutes talking about all the shootings. No fucking body cares about all the violence. Nothing from Jesse, fr flaker, sharpton, bobby rush, not a fucking word. But Dick Johnson does 5 minutes on the lost dog. The world is upside down. We are doomed.

+++++

Good citizens could care less how many shootings there as long as it's not happening in their backyard. Ignorance is bliss as they say. Even as a PO working on the northside I didnt pay any attention to the shithead vs. shithead crime on the southside as long as it stayed there, far far away. Besides, its not news anymore. Now give me a story of pooch wearing a life jacket. Now thats interesting.

You wanted the police neutered and now you have it. How's that working for you, liberals? Now, take your beatings, muggings and whatever else you get because the police can't proactively police anymore because we'll get fired or put in prison. Someones rights may get violated.

5/28/2012 07:11:00 PM

You guys don't get do you?

It's not the liberals getting shot/killed.
The liberals don't care about this shit..
So a few get their iPhones stolen downtown.
Who cares? Until there are drive by's and consistent
Murders in the gold coast/Michigan Avenue no one will care.. They offer their liberal views but that's it...
It's the people in the inner city ghettos getting killed and again no one cares.. Black on black crime... Population control to some...whatever but no one cares...
Correction, only politicians for a very short period until they get elected then again no one cares...

You might as well save it buddy, because I guarantee some salty fuck is going to chirp in about the perks that you didn't get and how the "district is empty and I can never take off." He will also say the units didn't do shit. Guess what? The district is full and you still cant take off and murders are sky rocketing.
Thank God, Salty Dickhead who never did shit still cant take off and is still doing paperwork that he still cant hide from.

11:30 PM is on target.

The GOLD BRAID pension clause is nothing more than legalized bribery to perpetuate CLOUT to the grave.

As far as pension relief, it is "the elephant in the room". We know it. Active and retired exempts know it (they may not admit it). YOU know it.

REPEAL GOLD BRAID NOW!

All too many beneficiaries of this patronage bribery are borderline morons who wouldn't know a felon if he bit them in the ass.

The CPD's "best and the brightest"? BULLSHIT, SUCK-ASS!

Go fuck yourself Gold Star! My partner's mother is a widow of a police officer and she get $28,100 a year. For the record, if you read the post it said everyone deserves their pension (PO, Sgt, Lt, Capt.) what I'm stressing is your last few years at gold star does Entitle you to some lifelong gift (payoff) for being citu hall's bitch. I mean your bleeding the pension (the gold star bump) off the backs of POs and dead Policeman's wives.

Maybe SCC could make a thread of this subject and we can see what the masses think when they see guys like Roti and Wysinger are getting Above and Beyond their civil Service Pension.

Stop using the word "reform".

These folks are looking to CUT the pension benefits, not "reform" them.

Call them cuts. That's what they are.
