My husband is out there with his fellow officers. I'm home praying for their safety. I don't think people understand the hard work Police Officers do every SINGLE DAY. You put yourselves in harms way to protect, to serve and to keep the peace and yet the media portrays you all as bullies. I hope that nothing happens to my husband today or any other Officer. But if something does, I will be on every news outlet saying the truth on how Rahm and McCarthy put you all in the middle of chaos without enough Officers or equipment!! Stay alert, safe and protect each other!

This is a class war and it's not local to Chicago and not even local to the USA.

Try Googling "Montreal" for example.

For 26 consecutive nights now there's been ten's of thousands in the streets. The latest numbers are quoting 20,000 protestors or more.

The bankers are running the same game as they did on the housing crisis that crashed the global economy and started all this with the too big to fail bailouts.

Seriously.

What started the mortgage crisis?

No doc loans, government subsidized loans, lack of banking regulation enforcement. Easy money.

What's going on now?

Now they shifted to student loans instead of mortgages, government subsidized and guaranteed with no bankruptcy allowed. Easy money

This easy money is causing tuition rates to soar like the easy money caused housing prices to soar.

This student loan debt bubble is now over one trillion dollars in the USA and represents more debt than auto loans or even credit cards.

The bankers are dancing, partying it up big time. You want another student loan guaranteed by the Federal government and taxpayers. Sure why not? Who cares if the person getting the money will ever get a job in their chosen profession or major. Eff that. The loan is guaranteed by the taxpayers! Whoo-hoo. Too bad for you if you bought into the concept of getting a higher education is ALWAYS the answer to a better life and standard of living.

FOOLS, now you have a six figure debt, a worthless graduate degree and a poverty job to pay it all back over the next 20~30 years if you're lucky.

Welcome to indentured servitude my friends. Do you see why there's protests going on?

Some will say IDGAF I got mine. I'm making my $80K a year. To them I say wait until you see what kind of retirement you have when the generation right behind you are all either unemployed or working poverty jobs with some over their heads in student loan debt and others the victims of public education cuts.

There will be no selling of your investments at a profit in retirement because no one can afford them. Just like the underwater mortgage many people have today. There's no wealth being generated by the generation right behind you to buy that house -- they are paying their student loans with their WalMart wages instead while still living at home.

There's no future here. What do you have to lose if you're in this position? Desperate people that see no future within the current system will do desperate things and I think this is only the beginning. One protest after another is the new norm. After NATO it's not over.

So how's this for hyprocrisy? Tom Morello, the former Rage Against the Machine guitarist, performed today at Petrillo and urged people to "fight economic injustice" and demand that the 1% support the rest of the economy.

Well, a quick check at celebritynetworth (dot) com shows that Morello is estimated to have a net worth of $60 million, putting him squarely in the top 1% of the 1%.

He's accumulated his fortune by selling out to things such as, making the musical soundtrack to "Talladega Nights" and "Anchorman," and being a featured musician for the "Guitar Hero" series of video games.

Do these sheep he's leading, and surely selling things to, even realize they're actively helping him do & be exactly what he pretends to "Rage" against?!?!

Lets see, 330 million people in America, so 99% must be the 800 that showed up Saturday night. About 100 of them were plainclothes police, FBI, Secret Service. About 150 were tourists that went along to see what happens. 120 were camera nuts looking for that photo op to make them a paparazzi. 100 were former hippies that survived the acid, heroin, cocaine trips, stayed in college years to avoid the draft, did nothing with their lives other than to abort a number of babies and are now searching for the meaning of life. 146 were guys that came downtown searching for loose liberal women with weed. 43 came from the hood looking for Iphones, Cameras, etc. 25 came down to sell weed. The 120 must have left their momn's basement and got one of the the (hundreds of buses from across the nation, according to Occupy folks.) That leaves the five Anarchists arrested.

It just occured to me that we have using the wrong approach with these Anarchist assholes. Notice that probably 1 in 50 may have a real job. They dress in stupid costumes like it is Halloween. Instead of throwing tear gas at these jagoffs...throw them CANDY! There you go! CANDY! The city could find some corrupt connected vendor to supply spoiled expired candy and little trick or treat bags for all the demented jerkoffs. They would be happy filling their faces with nice sugary treats.

You never underestimate your opponent. Driving the wagons through the crowds without infantry support was incredibly stupid.

If this crowd had been a touch more hostile, that right there would've been a flashpoint that may have lead to flipped wagons.

Around 6PM - watching FOX TV (local) for last hour and a half. Seeing all the CPD in the front lines - GOOD JOB in restraining yourselves.

I would have given them an hour after 4:15(when their permit expired). After that- would have drove in big garbage trucks and had them drive the crowd back.

With all of the protesters with their cameras, my first baton hit would be to the camera lens, then to the solar plexus. (Saw one copper actually do this - promote that man!)

Not enough action (like '68). News anchors trying to hype it up saying the police and protesters are clashing. Not quite.

I see all these cops on the street and wonder - HOW MUCH MONEY ARE WE WASTING HERE???

Lori Healey and the rest of the rah-rah crowd can go jump in the Lake. Chicago isn't making any money with this NATO Conference.

Just the police tab has to be HUGE $$$$. Stay safe - but crack some of these idiots' heads!

Hang in there, guys & gals....you've done a great job so far...I have to say I was impressed with how McCarthy held his own against a horde of press (some openly hostile & accusatory of police 'instigating' violence
last night) last night for an impromptu press conference. I've been retired for a while now,
so I don't know the man, but I was impressed
with how McCarthy handled himself with those
reporters. He's also been on the front lines for
ALL of this BS, and we all know Mr. J-FLED sure
as hell would be 'monitoring the situation from
his office at 3510.' Stay strong, all of you working

Dear Channel 7 - abc news:

The police department has shown extraordinary restraint in the light of the abuse (yes, bricks, bottles and buckets have been thrown at the police and attempts have been made to disarm officers).

The right to protest is guaranteed, yes, but the right to commit acts of violence and destruction is NOT. Try reporting the shattered windows at Wabash and Jackson, for starters.

By the way, since Jody Weis has NEVER been a police officer and has no boots on the ground experience as a police officer, he has no business commenting or acting as a 'specialist' in these matters. Please stop giving him any credibility. WE know he has none.

The bike patrol team did a great job and so did the blue shirts on the front line. Bottom line we were professional in every way and so was our Supt. It was cool that he was on the front line with us. Outstanding!!! We finally have a leader for the Chicago Police Department. I know you will make fun of me for saying this but I think we have proved our worth and will receive a fair contract. Good job to all for today. One more day and it's in the bag.

What a bunch of misguided fuck-ups. Yell in front of hotels that diplomats have already left for the day, yell at police who are not part of the 1%, and blame them for the policies they hate in Washington and on Wall Street. Makes no sense at all.

They really made a huge impact on those policies by taking our pictures and videotaping us, and chanting to each other since nobody else was there to listen.

Asking us why we had streets closed like we blue shirts invited NATO here and were responsible for the planning.

Dumb fucks, every single one. Insignificant nobodies, with nothing to offer. What a boring bunch--all follow the lead and nobody thinks for themselves. Not an original thought among them.

And too bad it didn't rain to wash some of the stink off of them.

What an ugly bunch. Ugyly personalities, ugly faces, ugly existences. Self-important, cookie cutters who chant the same things over and over to nobody but the people to their left and right.

We have an absolute pussy for a Sheriff that couldn't make a decision, a correct decision if his life depended on it. However, I am told he was on 60 minutes talking about how he saved some dead people.

The rank and file patrolman in our department just can not stand this guy. We, along with our Sgts, Lts and exempts at Maywood are all in agreement on this. CPD morale on their worst day could not equal the morale at our HQ tonight. The fact that Milwaukee PD, ILEAS, the State Police and even the Secret Service all put in work while we were held hostage in Maywood is appalling at every level.

I pray to god that each and every law enforcement officer that is eligible to vote for our next sheriff remembers this day and when it is time to elect another sheriff that they vote Tom Dart out of office. I remember when Cathy Touhy was injured and CPD gave that POS judge who let the offender walk a shellac job at the polls. We need to do this again, except to Dart.

I am aware that you feel that all professional courtesy should be revoked for Cook County. I do not blame you. However, if you will look at the bigger picture and the painfully evident lack of LEADERSHIP being forced upon us, perhaps you will reconsider.

Just listened to WGN News...Bob Jordan and Jackie Bang are pro- police. One street reporter, Maggie Carlo, was definitely siding with protesters saying cops were "clubbing" them.

To the first 2 comments: YOU'RE BORING!

And believe me, all of you people are a lot uglier than any pig I've ever seen.

At least pigs have personalities and heart.

The protesters had neither.

Yawn. Sounded like parrots. Squawk! Squawk!!! Squawk!!!! Nothing original. Conforming non-conformists who think they're unique.

Why didn't the protesters go into the 011th District to recruit some of the people of color to join them?
Why didn't they go to the meetings they were invited to in 011?

Because without a police escort, those protesters knew they'd get their asses kicked by the west-side residents....and they were too chicken-shit to go.

We should have bused in some 'folks' and 'people' to join in the fun.

I have not heard a single interview with a protester who could put together a coherent sentence. Not one. Not one could put forth a coherent thought.

What a waste of time. They should have done something more useful, like go to 011 and offer free housecleaning or lawn care to the unfortunate masses who live there.

The CPD performed magnificently. Watching it live in a public place in 18 people were not pro trouble makers.

And the media and Durbin call the Tea Partiers extremists? What a joke. I was at the Chicago Tea Party in the Loop a couple of April's ago. The CPD had no problem with anyone. Though, the CNN crew did it's best to create an incident.

When it comes to the media McCarthy does speak better than all of our past superintendents and all of our current exempt. He talks from the heart and off the top of his head and answers questions without having to read from a piece of paper. Or sound like he is writing a report. Or say "no comment" and panic when feeling pressured. And he doesn't hem and haw in the middle of sentences, even kline did that all the time.

Sorry I gotta give the guy that much, because all past and current cpd exempts were horrid and embarraasing when speaking to the media. McCarthy isn't afraid of the media because he loves the camera as much as he loves the hooch. And he appears to be doing a great job at both!

It's ironic, when you think about it, why the protest today went relatively well:

1) The police have no faith in their leadership, and therefore, we see no point in engaging with protesters.

2) Due to this lack of faith, and the potential of disciplinary action, we see no point in engaging with protesters

3) Due to the fact that the dept. does NOT 'have our backs', we see no point in engaging with protesters

4) Due to the lack of respect, the city's failure to live up to its pension obligations, and its attitude toward us that we mean nothing, we see no point in engaging with protesters.

5) Due to the fact that Rahm and McStupe would flush us down the toilet in a heartbeat, we see no point in engaging with protesters.

The media is already kissing McStupid's toes. I was there. I didn't get ANY TRAINING. I wasn't told how to behave. The success of this debacle was due to each and every single ONE of us, who knew what we had to do, despite the vile taunts and acts by the protesters who profess they want peace.

Maybe it's good the second watch was out there. We know the game--seen it, lived through it--no fucking way were we going to respond to some assholes thinking they were taunting us by calling us names and sticking cameras in our faces.

#1 rule--go home safe.

I do have to say, I'm impressed McJ was out there, and I was shocked at his emotion in an interview. Maybe he's crossing over from the dark side.

I hope everyone is safe and gets some sleep.

Congratulations Superintendent McCarthy on a great job! SCC I have to hand it to the guy. He is a Cop's cop. He was out there with us and was doing a great job. Even the media was impressed by us. The bike patrol team did a great job and so did the blue shirts on the front line. Bottom line we were professional in every way and so was our Supt. It was cool that he was on the front line with us. Outstanding!!! We finally have a leader for the Chicago Police Department. I know you will make fun of me for saying this but I think we have proved our worth and will receive a fair contract. Good job to all for today. One more day and it's in the bag.

Fuck the supe. It was every single officer on the line, not the fucking supe. We lost every single line we put up yesterday. Total chaos. Bike guys/gals pushed to the breaking point.

The success came from seasoned officers who knew what to do and how to respond to events not from any training from the CPD, but from spending years and years on the street, and putting what you've learned to work.

No fucking credit to bosses. We had to think on our feet. The situation was fluid. The credit goes to the blue shirts---YES, THE BLUE SHIRTS--who used their heads from their STREET EXPERIENCE, not from any training given for this event by the CPD.

A fair contract--where do you live, in a fucking fairyland?

We will never hear the end of McIdiot and Mc9.5 tooting their own horns about how great they are. Fuck you both. It was us, us, us, on the street.

Bravo Zulu CPD. Watched events unfold on Channel 9 from the comfort of my air conditioned living room.

After attending the CCC "Gang Book" roll-out, I wasn't really impressed with CPD Superintendent. Today he express himself as more than window dressing, surrounded with good leadership. Reminded me of legendary CFD Commissioner Quinn today.

Impressed with the crowd control use of force tactics and strategies. Very effective for this battle against these plausibly deniable special forces using a lawful civilian protest as cover for subversive activities. No doubt the "invisible committee" overlords are reviewing the films, preparing to exploit any perceived weakness.

Again, Bravo Zulu, CPD.

24th Dist Ranger.

I really wish we could learn who you are. You are such a complete ass kisser. Fair contract from Rahm? He has violated every labor contract is this city. Look what happened to the teachers. Then he changed the teamster's labor contract. We are next after nato. Rahm said we did the job we are paid to do, nothing more. The mayor negiotates conracts not the supt, you idiot. I want to hear from you in one month about the contract, asshat. BTW, did you work the street, ranger?

Saw that too. Great job! They were looking all over for that masked black guy. Was coordinating the Black Bloc with a walkie talkie. The Sgt. spotted him and went and got him. He had a big bottle with white liquid in his backpack, supposed to have been Sulfuric acid.

"Seasoned officers"; yes. But not you. You sound like some grumpy old fart who was pissed off that his daily routine of coming in on days, having coffee, lunch, maybe handling a few paper jobs and then ducking early was interpreted by NATO. Sorry. I was there and I agree with the guy from 24. I'm not quite ready to elevate McCarthy to sainthood but I respect the guy for being there with us. We're certainly quick to criticize him for something we don't like. Morons like you should shrivel up and go away.

You are so totally off-base. I was there too, and happy to go. You guys who call yourselves 'rangers' and the rest of that crap just haven't learned the game yet. Some day you will have the benefit of experience, and time on the job. You've got a lot to learn. I hope you learn sooner, rather than later, because right now you are a know-it-all kool-aid drinking dreamer who will wonder why your ass hurts after you are screwed with no lube.
