Confidence is High!

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel was trying to reassure the public that Chicago Police are moving quickly to stop the kind of mob attacks which occurred this past weekend, as well as the spike in gang violence this year.

    The mayor said he’s talked with Police Supt. Garry McCarthy about doing what’s necessary to stop the mob attacks downtown, and gang violence wherever it occurs, to make sure the streets are safe.

    “We’re going to make sure that – it’s not just Michigan Avenue – I want it in every part of the city. I want to make sure that our kids can again reclaim the streets, and our lawful citizens,” he said. “I will not rest until it happens.”

Thanks Rahm. Are you going to honor our contract while you express this so-called "confidence?"

Or are you going to, how did your minion put it..."stick it in [our] ear" over a supposed missed deadline?

Between the death of the tourism industry and a teachers' strike on the horizon, Rahm might be losing a bunch of sleep this summer.

No Confidence!

No Police in 016 and now multiple springs, homicides and rampant gang infestation. Not to mention ask the burglaries occurring!

The lack of police manpower is not apparent it is glaringly apparent!

The formerly nice areas of Chicago are turning to ghetto shitholes, while the ghetto shitholes are becoming fulllout war zones.

I guess being short 3,000+ coppers has a profound impact?

Keep regurgitating lies Garry, nobody believes a word you say anymore!

Rahm needs to stop the 'talk' and get the 'walk' of doing what is right..a thousand more Police Officers are needed to safe-guard the best interest of Chicago. Get real, we live in a scary, dangerous city.....denial doesn't cut it.

"Death of the tourism industry"

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

Thermonuclear Meltdown!

Take a look at the comments in the UK Parliament just the other day (youtube)

Country #4 just blew up.

Do you think we'll be getting any visitors anytime soon from Ireland, Greece, Spain, Italy, the UK and if the ECB goes up scratch Germany and France and the rest.

Russia is already pissed about NATO and the missile shield. Pakistan has cut off the troops and the Afghan presidents has demanded no more airstrikes even if NATO troops are under attack. They are tired of watching civilians getting blown up...but I digress.

Syria is up in flames performing mass executions of it's people with a dictator trying to hold onto power and we have an illusion of a get tough policy with sanctions on Iran barring the export of oil. HA...so many holes and exclusions on that it's ridiculous. We can't bar oil from anywhere and they know it!

Who the F---k is going to come to the Sanctuary City war zone with bodies dropping faster then in Iraq or Afghanistan?

We ain't seen nothing yet. Watch what happens when more bailout money goes to these bankers and the people are taxed for it because the government gave it away to keep a pyramid ponzi scam going and their friends in power and we the middle class should fund it. Just wait.

You see police forces around the globe getting manpower cuts and wage cuts as high as 20%. If you think that we're isolated think again.

The gig is up!

New City sees 2 double homicides in 2 days

By Tracy Swartz posted June 13, 2012 at 12:00 a.m.

New City saw two double homicides in two days, a RedEye analysis of preliminary police data found.

On Sunday, two men, ages 21 and 22, were shot to death in the 700 block of West 50th Place, police said. Two days earlier, two men, ages 22 and 26, were fatally shot in the 5100 block of South May Street, according to officials.

New City has recorded 12 homicides so far this year, according to RedEye data. The South Side community area logged 13 homicides in 2011, RedEye data found.

Meanwhile, Chicago Lawn and Greater Grand Crossing each recorded two homicides in the last week, according to police data.

In Chicago Lawn, a 20-year-old man was shot to death Monday in the 6300 block of South Rockwell Street, police said. Two days earlier, a 16-year-old boy was fatally shot in the 6100 block of South Rockwell Street, according to officials.

In Greater Grand Crossing, a 50-year-old man was fatally shot Sunday in the 7500 block of South Drexel Avenue, police said. One day earlier, a 27-year-old man was shot to death in the 6800 block of South Indiana Avenue, officials said.

Citywide, gunshot homicides were logged in the last week in Chatham, Englewood, Grand Boulevard, Portage Park, Riverdale and Roseland, police data shows.

Meanwhile, a 54-year-old man was stabbed to death Monday in the 1300 block of West Hastings Street on the Near West Side, police said.

Twenty homicides have been recorded so far this month. Forty-four homicides were logged in June 2011, RedEye determined.

We all live in this city but at the same time we have given more than enough concessions in depleted manpower, inadequate equipment, uneducated and inexperienced clout hack bosses... And a pension system we have been assured will be there and paid out portions as well as out taxes to fund...only to have it stolen from us by the political hacks that run this city. We would like a fair contract... Leave our medical alone, give us a minimum of 3% raise for the next 4 years, leave our duty availability and uniform allowances alone... You have already demoralized us and stripped us to the bone... We are the warriors of the city, we are the ones who go to battle every day to keep this city safe... If you want to be a successful mayor, I would make sure my city services are well taken care of as they are the core, the backbone of a successful city.... Firefighters, police officers, streets and San, teachers... Those are your core people...the ones who will make you look like a million bucks...fuck with them and your basically done.. Think about it, who will get the job done?? Who will make you look good?? Who will protect the citizens and the city?? We will..... Not you Mr. Mayor. You need to consider the people who make this city run....that's us, NOT you my friend, your just a mouthpiece. Do the right thing...we are not wealthy people like you, we are ordinary, blue collar, hard working men and women doing an often thankless job because we love what we do and love our city. WE are the city of Chicago

Nothing will be done to solve the problem. Why? Because Chicago has a culture of Missing Links (I refuse to call them animals, out of respect for the animal kingdom).

This culture is infested with a large cancerous growth that has no respect for anything or anyone. They have no qualms about killing, , raping, robbing or any other insult against humanity.

Feeding this cancerous growth is a code of silence that allows this growth to run roughshod over innocent victims.

Until such a time that this growth is removed from society things will keep getting worse.

Everyone knows the problems, everyone knows the answers, yet all are afraid to speak the truth out of fear of offending certain people.

Anyone who is a "leader" in Chicago - political, civic, or union leader better WAKE UP to the fact that the story is out.

It is NOT safe to come downtown - especially on public transportation like the CTA - and if you come downtown you might run the risk of getting mugged or worse.

The money will start to dry up as people stop coming downtown and before you know it, Chicago is Chitroit (or do you say Shitroit?).

All you "leaders" better wake up now before it's too late and hire and train more police as well as throw all these little hood maniacs in jail.

I have curtailed a lot of trips downtown but now my main goal is to avoid downtown altogether.

Did you hear that N. Michigan Avenue? No more money from this suburbanite - or my family. Or my neighbors. Get the picture?

Hey Chicago Media.....can one of you (um, not to be picky but ANYONE other than Phil Rogers of NBC) get a final, validated headcount of the Chicago Police Department?

When 2 people claim it's X, and 2,000 others on this blog claim it's Y, well, as a taxpayer I take serious issue with that. The headcount/payroll numbers are finite. It is objective data. There is no room for spin, embellishments, half-truths, and/or outright lies. What is the headcount? It's like asking how much something costs. There is one price. One number. Partially educated 3rd graders know what numbers are. Do you? I know this will take some, gasp, effort, but, I'm sure there's one go getter journalist that can handle this simple task. Right? Refuse to stomach the spin. Sure, the truth will hurt, but until the smoke and mirrors are finally revealed we're stagnant, and sitting fucking ducks.



Some other commenter nailed it.....you really should leverage this crisis into getting more headcount.

Put the fear of God and upright men in Rahm & McCarthy by refusing to work these "overtime intiatives" they're pulling out of their asses...

They've starved CPD of resources and manpower?

(The public doesn't have the good collective sense enough to declare war on the politicians for that)

The men and women of CPD should starve THEM of the fleeting political cover they need by refusing to work these initiatives.

To be clear... Every man according to his conscience and his ability to keep body, mind and soul together when it comes to these initiatives.

But...

When you're standing on the foot of a l'il shit-ass and you have his throat hard in hand and you've crushed the wrist of his striking hand and you're about to turn it and destroy his elbow and shoulder if he persists in trying to hurt you?

The shit-ass will always "sue for peace" and want to compromise and work things out when the upright and justified reasonable man is provoked into tearing that ass to pieces...

Why waste a perfectly good crisis?

Confidence is high that we have Rahm exactly where we want him...

Do we give him air and opportunity to slip away?

Policemen aren't as vicious and vindictive as they need to be...

The criminal-political cabal and the media need for The Policeman to be accomodating and long suffering... That's how the fairy tale is supposed to go. Right? Officer Friendly to the point of his own demise. Right? Policemen aren't supposed to be scary when their interests are threatened right?

Policeman are supposed to be as wholly terrifying when their financial and career safety is threatened as they are when their physical well being is threatened.

One IS inseperable from the other.

There are so many whose very actions indicate a great fear of Policemen actually being in a position to "Fight Back."

Also interesting - another tradition being upheld (be out of town when shit happesn). According to Sneed, "Mayor Emmannuel left Wednesday for Prague to celebrate daughter Iliana's bat mitzvah by visiting the Spanish Synagogue one of the last remaining synagogues to survive WWII."

Mark it down on your calander, June 2012, the tipping point in Chicago. Remember what happened to State Street 30 years ago, it used to be the place to be, it was what Michigan Avenue is now, it was abondoned due to fear. Michigan Avenue could be looking at the same demise. Wake up Mayor, history repeats itself. Hire more police because if you think that your cost cutting ideas with the police department will work you are terribly wrong. Is Chicago going to be the new Detroit, I hope not because I love this city, but Rahm will be long gone by then and I guarentee you there will be no question as to his residency because he will be looking in his rearview mirror at what was once was one of the greatest cities in the world.

Here's my problem with all these "flash muggings." Its not like these happened in vacant lots or back alleys. These happened in high pedestrian areas where there HAD to be at least a dozen people around. My question is, did anyone, ANYONE think to step in and help these victims who were getting beat or are the people of this city and the residents of those areas so wrapped in their own little self-serving worlds that they watched this happen or ran and hid?

Sheeple will always be sheeple but there must have been a few joe citizen sheep dogs out there who could have stepped up to help fight off the wolves. There was just a story out of Canada where an MMA fighter saw two teens getting beat and robbed and stepped in to help and chased down a few of the attackers.

The police cannot be everywhere and we are severly short handed. You citizens need to step up and show these animals you are not easy prey to be taken. Fight back!! Take action to help your fellow citizen!! Just calling 911 isn't enough when a group of thugs are on top of one person. Sorry for the rant. Stay safe brothers. Its just the beginning. I pray we make it another hot violent summer without adding another fallen star our wall.

Ah, but now Rahm is working to turn the other unions against the teachers! The SEIU union contract and the union contract for the lunchroom workers, have both been settled. So now it'll be "if the teachers strike, it's their fault that the other school employees are losing wages, since they don't work if the school teachers aren't in school."

Wednesday night (yesterday), about 8pm, as I got off 290 at Western heading North, I came upon about 100 young men blocking traffic on Western Ave. It wasn't clear if it was a "flash mob" or a protest for closing Felony Franks. As an ordinary citizen, I was nervous as the kids let some cars pass and I had 6 youts pressed up against my car. Luckily I was able to drive off and outta there. As I looked back, it seemed there was some sort of "fight" starting in a lot off Western that was spilling into Western. A big group of kids was pushing another group of kids into the street. No visible weapons, but it looked like a game of Red Rover gone bad. I could have called 911, but it sounds like you all have your hands full with pension issues and uniform allowances, so I moved along and was lucky I didn't get shot or my car tipped over. I will just avoid Western from now on to get to 290. Thanks, Rahm and thanks CPD! And thanks SCC for letting us read your blog to know just how bad things really are crime wise.

Interesting comparison between ordinary, untrained people walking down the street encountering a mob of 10 or more teens with a trained MMA fighter against 2 teens? Have you lost common sense? The MMA fighter had a high chance of winning against 2 teens. What if one of the teens in the mob has any type of weapon? I have called 911 in the past and no one responded. Sorry Southside blue shirt, but this is a job for the CPD.

Ahhh, the devil is in the fine print. Rahm never said he would HIRE 2,000 cops, only that he would put 2,000 on the street and in his demented politician lying fucking mind, he did.

Rahm is basically an articulate well spoken Richard M Daley. I am thinking now that Daley was smarter, Daley would simply mumble his lies and walk away. Rahm lies in quite proper English, as taught in New Trier and other Wilmette, IL schools.

Seems to be a common theme here no?

A primer: How to use statistics to baffle them with bullshit!

Was Obama's Recovery the Worst in Modern Times, or the Best in 20 Years?


Not to mention that no matter which stats in that link you want to buy into there is absolutely no mention of what kind of jobs are being created.

It's implied that one million jobs created is a sign of a return to the good ol' days, a recovery, better times.

However ask the people working two or three of those part-time min-wage temporary jobs that they tout are being created and see what those people have to say!


You lose your full-time living wage job with benefits and have to take on two part-time min-wage jobs to make ends meet and still can't do it and these jackazzes want to tell you that you have a "perception problem" everything is just fine and don't forget, crime is down too!

Walker's success in Wisconsin has highlighted the people's disgust with Obama and the liberal hacks giving away our tax dollars.

We could quite feasibly get Rahm Recalled if enough working Chicagoans actually got out and voted. Even if we failed, the sheer spectacle of the people standing up to this carpetbagging puke would put the last nail in the Clinton-Obama-Rahm coffin.

Gee look it's another "perception problem"

Solyndra layoffs larger than previously reported

Documents show nearly 1,900 people lost their jobs as solar panel maker closed

On the day it closed, Solyndra said it was laying off 1,100 full-time and temporary employees.

But 1,861 workers lost their jobs as the solar panel manufacturer shut its doors, according to U.S. Labor Department documents provided to The Bay Citizen under the Freedom of Information Act.

The documents also show the Fremont-based company increased production in 2011, even though it failed to sell all the panels it made the previous year.

Source: The Bay Citizen (http://s.tt/1ee2U)

That's the company that Obama funded with taxpayer funded grants and guaranteed loans, the company that went bankrupt. Hey look layoffs are down too, see!

Today I stopped by the FOP for Gun Safety Day. I came during the rush so I had to stand by the door for a moment as the range guys cleared weapons for the vendors. It was real nice for the FOP to do this. I got some springs and do-hickeys swapped out by Sig and Smith. As I was walking to the door area to load my gun, 2 things happened. Some ghetto broad form maybe narcotics was acting goofy with her gun and then some young guy was challenging the range guy about unloading his gun. He really started pissing the range guy off, saying he must have bed bugs in his pants. The range guy said everyone in the safe area needed to have uloaded guns so that the vendors didn't get shot. This young guy was a real jerk. Thanks again FOP. I felt better about the state of my "roscoes" afterwards.

Hello Officer,
I want to thank you first for your service and sincerely hope you stay safe. I understand your frustration because I totally get how the mayor of our city has not equipped the Chicago Police Department with Officers or equipment or strategies to handle the hate crimes perpetrated by black ghetto youth against white/hispanic/asian individuals in the downtown area, on our beaches, and on our public trans.
I'm not sure if you've seen the make-up of those on Mag Mile. It's not like there are bulked up folks shopping. Yes, you are right. It is a total war zone but...you can't expect regular citizens, workers, and tourists to go out there and fight without weapons (against our law to carry concealed), training or armour. I can completely understand your frustration, but, I know this area very very well, having been a patient at NW Memorial for years. The people on the street there aren't there for a fight. These aren't combat-trained individuals. They don't know the ghetto has moved to the Mag Mile. You're talking little hunched-over old ladies with dowager humps from osteoporosis walking their ancient hounds. Families from out of town with small children and/or teenagers in tow with no clue of dangers. Individual females shopping a store or too, one of whom could be a girlfriend of a cop. Baby boomer retired couples in to see the city and maybe a show or two. Add to that all the commuters who work in the myriad of high rises and shopping malls located there, running out for a 20-minute break, alone, to grab lunch or whatever. Plus, many doctors/staff/patients from Northwestern Memorial. Not MMA Fighter material obviously. The ghetto trash coward illiterates see this-they know the pickings are ripe. The answer is not citizens/tourists/patients/professionals fighting. They'd get killed doing so because the wildings are always 14 or more blacks against ONE white/asian/hispanic. The answer is Rahm Emmanuel adding 2,000 Officers to the Chicago Police Department. Please stay safe, Officer. Everyone feels your pain!

Our only hope is putting together 6 person volunteer squads of professional African American POs who believe in doing what is right and have them patrol the Loop and Gold Coast to simply confront the mob thugs with necessary force.
So when the City gets sued at least the claim that they got their asses kicked because they were black is somewhat minimized.

Hey Chicago Media.....can one of you (um, not to be picky but ANYONE other than Phil Rogers of NBC) get a final, validated headcount of the Chicago Police Department?

When 2 people claim it's X, and 2,000 others on this blog claim it's Y, well, as a taxpayer I take serious issue with that. The headcount/payroll numbers are finite. It is objective data. There is no room for spin, embellishments, half-truths, and/or outright lies. What is the headcount? It's like asking how much something costs. There is one price. One number. Partially educated 3rd graders know what numbers are. Do you? I know this will take some, gasp, effort, but, I'm sure there's one go getter journalist that can handle this simple task. Right? Refuse to stomach the spin. Sure, the truth will hurt, but until the smoke and mirrors are finally revealed we're stagnant, and sitting fucking ducks.



Some other commenter nailed it.....you really should leverage this crisis into getting more headcount.

Remember, in the budget and in other douments (Civic Fedeartion, ect.) they count our vacation calander days and sick days (with IOD) as not being present for duty, like we are all of sick work all the time compared to the private sector. People get hurt on this job! Do you get a vacation? I get one too! Second, how many people jump fences at night in the dark looking for rappists and burglary suspects? None!

Yeah. We have 4 in the district. Go back to bed.

Really, we, the CPD were supposed to get 400~500 of them.

Did Rahm stop paying the bills again?

Well we have seen none where we work! Not when I fuel up, get R-service or being used by other units. The best of our cars have 70,000 plus miles on them. So where do you have these supercopmobiles.

Put the Xbox controller down for a bit and absorb something that's actually relevant, you stupid motherfucker.

And then go look in a mirror to see exactly how bad entitlement and hair gel has fucked up this job.

Gigicat, (or anybody else reading this) can you pls clarify your comment about not being able to carry pepper spray. I am a 34 yr old female and I carry it with me everywhere I go. Are you telling me it's illegal to have it spray-ready in case of attack? I've also thought about hiding a knife in my sleeve (strike-ready) in case I am attacked. Is that illegal? I would like to be able to defend myself and I would like clarification on what forms of self defense I can use/carry (legally). My husband has a stun-gun / taser that he purchased off of the internet that he carries to work. I hope thats ok to use. Thanks everyone!

To south side blue shirt: you r a moron. How can one person break up a mob of 20 black thugs? We aren't allowed to arm ourselves. Should we carry around baseball bats? Should the person walking home from work hit the mob of 20 with her purse? Wake up, these black thugs are armed and dangerous. I can't even hold my mace while walking around .

The point is PEOPLE need to step up and show they are not afraid of these animals. The MMA fighter has an obveous advantage physically but the point was he stepped up when he could have easily kept going and looked the other way. These thugs are no more trained fighters than you, they just know these people will not fight back. Bloddy a few of their noses and they will run like the cowards they are. It shows by your response that you fall into the sheeple catigory. You mean to tell me that at least a few citizens couldn't go and help these victims? Are there any men left? If this is the overall attitude of the people then you will forever be victims. Stand up and fight or lie down and roll over.

Our only hope is putting together 6 person volunteer squads of professional African American POs who believe in doing what is right and have them patrol the Loop and Gold Coast to simply confront the mob thugs with necessary force.
So when the City gets sued at least the claim that they got their asses kicked because they were black is somewhat minimized.
Case closed.

Watch Bachelorette Episode 1 to answer your question as to whether there are any men left. Half the "eligible bachelors" look and sound like PeeWee Herman. Our John Wayne era has been replaced by narcissistic, hedonistic, metro-sexuals in tight Italian suits who wouldn't want their plastic surgery mugs messed up. The real guys are busy fighting battles elsewhere in military, police, fire, etc. They're not out shopping Mag Mile.

How would a foot officer handle a sudden flash mob attack? There are limits when a person is suddenly attacked by a group of 10 teens. This is not a simple robbery. They are determined to beat the victim with punches and multiple kicks in the face and body. Where are the police to break up the mobs? To monitor the red line and Michigan Ave? Michigan Ave always had the priority for tourists. Under McCarthy, 007 and 011 has the priority and now we have roving mobs of teens attacking tourists and families on Michigan Ave. Name another city that would tolerate this type of crime? It is out of control and so embarassing.

You are a PO Assigned as Detective. Why don't you just request to return to your previous assignment as a regular PO?

Probably because he knows it's no better these days in patrol.
You have no idea the caseload and other stuff being piled on the det's. It's almost as if McClueless has a vendetta against detectives. He's using the d as his fallback, having them do everything but the job they're supposed to be doing.
And, Constantin Andrews likes seeing a vast, open space when he deigns to visit an area, so he HAS banned file cabinets. No joke.

When i wont be arrested for carrying a battery operated nail gun around with me, believe me Ill be helping out. And why are you sitting inside typing when you yourself should be, by your own comments, be roaming the streets looking for people to protect? I must agree with you, there arent many "men" left in this world. Most r a bunch of babies. Afraid of their own shadow.

(I DIDN'T KNOW WE HAD A HOOD CALLED "NEW CITY" wtf?)

Used for census purposes, New City is one of seventy-seven official community names.

Within those communities, over two hundred neighborhoods exist.

And please don't complain about that because it was YOU PEOPLE that voted this fucker in just like you kept voting in that piece of shit before him.

As a part of "YOU PEOPLE", I did NOT vote for Daley II and Emanuel.

Remember what happened to State Street 30 years ago, it used to be the place to be, it was what Michigan Avenue is now, it was abondoned due to fear.

In 1982, without fear, others and I could walk on State Street.

When will they learn that disbanding these units over a few bad apples hurts the citizens and not the bad apples? I'm sure it must be a very demoralizing experience for those officers that have done done their jobs with professionalism. In the private sector those types of managers would have a hard time being placed.

"Are there any men left? If this is the overall attitude of the people then you will forever be victims. Stand up and fight or lie down and roll over."

This is nonsense.

If you've got 8-10 teens hellbent on attacking *you* then you can get your back flat against a wall and face them down without inflicting much damage but if they're attacking someone else and you want to get them off then the way to do it (if you can't just shoot them) is go all-in roaring your head off, swearing like crazy and getting very busy with your little wooden stick.

Now if you come across 8-10 teens beating someone to death in an alley at night you can do it that way but if you do it in public then you'll be the one getting crucified on the evening news because it'll look like evil cop beating on black kids for no reason.

This is made worse by the fact that most of these kids don't look that scary on their own. It's the pack that's dangerous.

It all comes back to the same problem. The media lies about black crime and that makes it impossible to do anything about it. If the media told the truth then when the public saw film on the news of a copper trying to break up a pack attack they'd understand what he was doing.

Jealous of the Box Chevy Phantom (BCP), Snarky?

I would nominate BCP as the poet laureate of SCC.

Nothing like (eloquently) "keeping it real". You obviously would not understand the concept.

"...wanna-be crappy writers."

So according to you, anyone who posts something YOU don't like on a blog that ISN'T YOUR'S should "sit down and shut up?"

Opinions are like assholes...

Thousands of, per...

At least the adults are trying to provoke thought and contribute something to the dialog about things affecting the very lives and well being of Policemen.

Your contribution is?
*Crickets...*

Either you shout everybody down or direct your short attention span toward "entertainment" more suited to you like the Sunday funnies. Bright colors, easy words and no shame on your part because you likely can't read without your lips moving.

We'll continue to post as long as the blogmeister permits us to.

The same no doubt holds true for W.S.I.D.N. and many others SCC has given a "voice" to.

Our small part in demonstratating that Policemen ARE people too.

Even in the face of so many who insist otherwise...

Which camp are YOU in, slick?
