Another Perception Problem

  • In what police are calling gang-related road rage, a man was shot and seriously wounded near the corner of Michigan Avenue and Ontario Street early this morning after he got out of a car and used a pipe to break the window of an SUV.

  • When asked what the incident says about violence in the city, [First Deputy Superintendent] Wysinger replied: “I don’t think you can really attribute it to anything. You have two guys that seemingly got into some argument or traffic-related incident. They stopped, exchanged words and the person inside the damaged vehicle took offense.’’

    “This could have happened anyplace in the city or suburbs,’’
But it didn't happen "anyplace" Al. It happened at Michigan and Ontario, close to the heart and soul of the Chicago tourist industry. Add to that the recent beating in Wicker Park, the throat slashing in Wrigleyville, the car jacking by Goose Island, the like-clockwork beatings at the beaches and still barely covered weekend wildings downtown, we think it's safe to say we've moved beyond a "perception problem." We're safely into a "reality problem."

The "it could happen anywhere" explanation and attitude is not going to sit very well with the lake front "I have $2M+++ condo right around the corner" clientele.

Here's another perception problem. The Supe and brass have this perception that all of us are going to go out every night and give it our all. Reality, I ain't doing sh*t for this department anymore. PERIOD. "Can I have an event number for doing nothing squad?" Thank you.

For the love of god, you not get it? Nevermind, you don't.
You had a sliver, a tiny one, but it was a sliver of a chance to turn face. You stood behind the Blue and Whites at NATO, pats on the back, grabbing water for the guys working their asses off and had the "emotional" interview commending the department. You stood behind the department and it appeared at times real. At NATO, the department won, but for who? Tiny dancer? The city? Obama? Who??? The Chicago Police Department? Who was this show for in the end? It certainly wasn't the latter....
Now it's back to the everyday, nonsensical, bullshit, spin machine. C'mon Supe, you stood behind the department at a time you thought it was needed and while "the world was watching".....stand behind it now for Christ's sake.
It's time to get real and be real. The #s don't like so don't spin them. More men are needed. A LOT of them. I know, this may mean a bit of a comfort adjustment, as it most certainly means a head to head with Mr. mayor, but it needs done. If not, this city, the media, and 9.5 will paint you into the proverbial corner due to the violence and then it's done. Game over. You'll be packing....

Tip: it's better to resign freely, than to be given the choice of " resign or be fired"

From most of his comments, I think Al is not very intelligent. And further, he just carries water for the political explanation of why crime is so bad in the city. Create magic dust, instead of officers in vacancies long since retired from. Good luck chicago

Add to that the shooting in Lincoln Park tonight. Channel 7 reported that it was between two people who knew each other, so not a problem for the neighborhood.

Spin spin spin.

Any details of the pre-dawn shootings just north of Lincoln Park Zoo outside the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum on Cannon Drive at Fullerton Parkway? Could it be those damn Scandinavians again?

That's in the 43rd Ward where new Ald. Michele Smith has plans to "diversify" Lincoln Park with Section 8 housing.

Frank and Fran have a new strategy for keeping the emperor's clothes on... What they will do is everytime the horribly crazy news of carnage is breaking, ol'Frank and Fran the fluff experts will trot out news of "open air drug market busts" being eradicated and numbers of parollees and gang members being arrested to blind the public's eye to the real truth. Real truth is that the more shitbags you arrest for selling dope, only creates opportunities for even more thugs to be created to creativly distribute more product by establishing teritry through even more violence. AND this does nothing to help the poor man that had his throat slashed by one of Quinn's early releases or the criminally insane that have driven into the streets due to the closing of Mental Health Facilities. These wackos are coming for every citizen in Shitcago and the crime problem will be Rahm's waterloo.

Sure. According to Englewood Rules this shit goes on all the time. One shithead takes offense to what another shithead is screaming and decides to take some shots. Required to take some shots, actually. Englewood Rules. On Michigan Ave & Ontario. Let the whole world see how they do things in Englewood. JJ must be proud of his people.

That car with the gang banger got into a situation with the other car with the other gang banger and we'll just call it road rage instead of the gang incident it is.

You know, this is kind of fun. Let's just join the renaming party. Today, I'm not going to do nothing, I'm going to use my presence to deter crime while conserving energy for crimes that my require more attention. I'll be doing more with less.

I really like this. Now I'm not just sitting here with my coffee, I'm gathering intelligence while surveilling the battle space. And reading this paper is keeping current on the latest crime trends while preparing appropriate strategies to counteract them.

Come on. Join in on this. It's great. No wonder they lie so much, I mean rephrase the situation on the ground so it's more palatable to the public.

McNutty, Wysinger and Rahm follow the ostrich reaction. If you bury your head in the sand you don't see anything.
Since they don't see anything they refuse to acknowledge anything and in their own little worlds everything is hunky dory.
Politicians and their ilk are the slimiest bastards around.

The demeanor is such that they can treat all of us like shit because, whatta ya gonna do a 'bout there stealing and buying-off of all the votes they need while they tax the shit out of us.

I'm really curious, why, when its a known fact that North Avenue Beach & Oak Street Beach are primary locations for summertime black against white wildings, beatings and assaults, clearly hate crimes, why, when black mobs are blocking the paths and laughing at the outnumbered white people they're picking off left and right, WHY, is there not even ONE, not even one Chicago reporter camping out there to capture the story and the footage? I'm asking you, Chicago media, why are you not out there covering this story?? All you have to do is go to the beach on a hot day in the afternoon or night on the weekends. Throw on some sunscreen and get your butts out there! Citizens and tourists deserve to see the real truth. It's not like this is Juarez, Mexico, right?

Hilarious!!!! Heard the soundbite on 780 radio from the "Rev" JJ freakshow "rally" Friday at the anti-violence handgun fiasco. The "Rev" is trying to speak and some heckler is screaming at him in the background telling JJ to go home!! It was some funny shit!! So ol' JJ moves a couple blocks to try and re-deliver his lines of bullshit and suck up to the microphone and the heckler moves with hime and starts all over again!!! JJ sputtering and humming/hawing was all frazzled!! Pissed my pants I laughed so hard!!!

Be on the lookout for Scandinavian youths, armed and dangerous, with swelling cans of Surstromming, the stinkiest food wanted by Interpol. Do not get anywhere near them. If those cans blow, death is certain. It might be pigeons, chihuahuas, or people, but there won't be any way to humanely retrieve ballistics or body parts.

Keep up the "Not Hiring Police" Campaign started by shanks & keep promoting do nothing/know nothing political hacks to lead the dept. Soon there will be nothing but an "Amos & Andy" upper echelon with no one to lead.

The crime in this city is a result of daley's vendetta against the police for daring to publicly criticize him.

This will be daley's legacy.
