God Squad Out in Force

Desperate times call for desperate measures:
  • Calling for widespread action to stop gun violence in Chicago, about 70 faith leaders from the city and nearby suburbs gathered Monday for prayer and reflection.

    "We're tired of doing funerals. I feel like this tiredness has awakened us to really do something," said Pastor Paco Amador of the New Life Community Church in Little Village.

When we're tired of doing something, we usually find something else to occupy our time. You know, like stopping pointless meetings and participating to make changes. We think it's called "parenting," but we could be mistaken.

Then you have this lunatic:

  • The yellow school bus rumbled down 79th Street Monday evening, passing by boarded-up store fronts, a shuttered currency exchange and a little church — The Temple of Divine Love.

    A few minutes later, the bus pulled up to the curb, and two dozen or so men in suits and starched collars disembarked — stone-faced men, marching in single file, on a mission.

    For the second Monday in a row, “the Fruit of Islam,” Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan’s all-male disciples, flooded a South Side community — this time the South Shore in an effort to help stop the killings that have plagued the city this year. The shootings have caused the murder to spike, drawing international attention.

Farrakhan has the hilarious task of attempting to stop the killings without blaming the Jews like he always does, in a town with a Jewish mayor. Then he has to hope Rahm will throw him some of that crazy money like he did to CeaseFire, thereby putting him in the position of owing that Jewish mayor a political debt, namely an endorsement or votes. It's a wonder Farrakhan's head doesn't explode at the thought of having to do this.

We are also amused that he and his "fruits of islam" are out marching on a Monday during daylight hours, statistically pretty much the least violent time of all week. This should solve everything.

SHOW ME THE MONEY!

Yeah we're tired of this Rahm. We've heard that you're handing out $1 mil dollar checks to people and we want ours!

Funny how this all comes about just shy of election time when the money for votes and votes for money can be maximized.

Fear is a powerful motivator and prime example of not letting a crisis go to waste.

Meanwhile that other Rev. is gallivanting across the USA using the children as tools to raise millions of dollars to build a rec center on the south side. Time will tell if he ever gets the money needed or just a nice all expenses paid vacation to see the USA when all is said and done.

Idea:

Attire the police in white suits with bow ties, maybe with glasses. This will surely draw the attention of the community to the way of the lawful. Praise be to McAllah.

I shall name this, "The Reverend Louis Farrakhan Gang Initiative." It shall be implemented by Chicago Police citywide. Its namesake shall receive $2.5 million for program development.

I shall be meritoriously promoted for suggesting this great program.

Best part is these goofs got to act out this charade in temperatures hovering in the mid-90s with heavy humidity. Too bad none of them dropped like flies; plenty of 'Fru-na-row Homes' along 79th Skreet.

I'd hate to be the driver of the bus back to NOI headquarters surrounded by these funky, rotting "fruits of islam". Especially considering the cramped quarters of the "short" bus that transported these simpletons.

It's starting. Now every neighborhood group is going to start protecting the streets to get in on some grant.

If any of them had been effective over the years (Pfleger, included), it would have shown by now. They're just as much a part of the problem culture as the gangs.

How about if Mother and Father occupy the goddamn house and occupy the role of parent like regular people?

And the kids occupy the bed in their bedroom after dark and not be on the damn street after dark so Mother and Phantom Father don't have to make excuses for them when they get shot thus interrupting their turning their lives around and another rap artist on the verge of stardom is taken from them too young. We already have more than enough rap "artists" to last from here to eternity.

And maybe if chillun's occupy the school seat and the books occupy their attention and they learn that impossible shit like reading, writing and arithmetic. Toss in geography, history and some civics classes and you might have a beginning.

And maybe a real church, not a tambourine waving hand flapping hate mongering phony reverend loudmouth screaming charlatan occupying the position of spiritual leader. And no strange or young pussy for the rev'rund either.

Make no mistake, while Fahrahkan may be a nut job and the "Fruit of Islam" has a funny ring to it, do not underestimate them. They are both, and collectively, very dangerous. The "Fruit of Islam" are the self proclaimed "protectors" of the "prophet" and of the faith. They are armed to the teeth, don't let them tell you otherwise. I worked in 021 back in the day and have had dealings with them on numerous occassions. They have no respect or love for the police or for America. They are dangerous, and they are organized. If you have to deal with them in anyway, shape or form, you watch your ass, period. They would as soon as take you out as they would to look at you. If you attempt to impede their agenda, you will see what they are willing and capable of. Be careful around them. Let them do their peace thing, but keep a half an eye on them.

Chicago turns to Los Angeles for help as murder numbers rise

As Chicago turns into the murder capital of the country, it is turning for help to Los Angeles, which has overcome its violent past of more than a decade ago. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has blamed the increasing violence on gangs, a problem Los Angeles knows well. Emanuel recently called Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to talk about strategies to deal with the gangs and Chicago officials have met with Deputy Mayor Guillermo Cespedes, who oversees the anti-gang program here.

In keeping in the Chicago police tradition of using an acronym in naming crime-fighting teams and still addressing the femininity of Farrakhan's all-male disciples, they decided to appropriately refer to themselves by the acronym, "B.S."
(Bow-tie Squad)

It should be noted that the acronym for their '1st choice,'
"The Reverends Unicks" was already taken by TRU.

Heat Maps of Chicago crime

This is the story, and I am sticking with it!



46 Shot – 9 Dead




That was the score this weekend in Chicago. 46 shot (actually puncture wounds) nine dead, Chicago stopped counting graze wounds and only counts actual bullet holes now, you don't count if you get your nose or ear shot off. Chicago is also a city three quarters of which is unsafe to walk in, referred to locally as "Indian County".

This is the crowning achievement of our politicians and the social engineers, who long ago decided that big, bad, brutish policemen were no longer needed. So it came to pass that in the 70's they started forcing females onto the department. That did away with height and strength requirements. They then decided that the correct rainbow of colors was needed. To accomplish this they lowered the aptitude tests and created quotas. That did away with intelligence and integrity requirements. Of course gays could not be excluded either. The ideal candidate for promotion became a black transvestite with a Spanish surname who had lesbian tendencies.

Our weapons were next on their agenda. Saps, zap gloves and the like were banned, little cans of pepper spray were issued (what a joke). Our shotguns were moved from the front seat to the trunk, from the trunk to the radio room and from there just disappeared. New ammunition was issued which was so inadequate it would ricochet off of car windshields. And God help you if you hit someone with your flashlight.

Finally the politicians got rid of the real Policemen. The Superintendent was fired and they hired an FBI weenie who never worked the street in his life. He, in turn, fired the Commanders who were real Policemen and replaced them with internal affairs weenies and gays and a decent sprinkling of color. Finally they sweetened the retirement pot offering health care to anyone wishing retirement, thus eliminating the last few remaining real Police. The result is a department that is befuddled, cow towed, weak and totally not feared by the thugs and gang bangers, but oh so politically correct.

The City has succeeded in ridding itself of the brutish dinosaur cops of old and has replaced them with little girls and yuppies who wouldn't know a bad guy if he shit in their face. They also have a 50% increase in homicides this year and dozens of people shot every weekend. There are more people shot each weekend in Chicago than in Baghdad, Kabul or Detroit.

Rejoice oh liberals, you have gotten exactly what you wanted. Hope you enjoy it!

Sincerely, a retired old school cop

Look fo this to be emphasized for the next few weeks and a new unit to be created in fall/winter. With this new "history" in place Garry and Rahm can create a new unit with impunity. I expect the unit to start small and receive praise for the weather related winter murder reduction. The unit will grow in size slowly and quietly as PPO's replace the detailed out officers.
Within two years that unit will dwarf in numbers what MSF/TRU were.

Yes the parents will need to be the parents. If nobody in the family has a job and the kids are buying cars,clothes,toys,tv's & phones,etc. Well you know that the money isn't legit. STOP letting them do it. We go into houses every day and see things that we can't afford with 2 parents working more then just the 2 jobs too.

Same with the churches. If the family is on "public aid" then how caan they be dropping in large donations to the offering on sunday services & weekday bible study. Its sinfully obtained revruns.

The police will NEVER be able to stop the killings in your area. It will take the people living there to call the police and turn the thugs in. Even if they are your family.

Went to the orientation yesterday. You must sign up by 31 August or they start deducting the $100 out of your pay every month. Once you are signed up, you will take a mandatory physical where they test your waist size, body mass and blood tests for various diseases. At that time, they plant a micro-processor within your brain. They then recommend a "wellness" plan for you. If you are a fatass, they might recommend that you lose 30 pounds in the next three months. If you dont comply, they activate the micro-processor and you die. CCMEO is "in" on the whole thing. At the autopsy, they will make your death "Natural" causes. Rahm wins all around!

Mayor Bloomberg Says Cops Should Go On Strike Until Americans Give Up Their Guns

Mike Riggs | July 24, 2012

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told CNN's Piers Morgan last night that he doesn't "understand why police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say we’re going to go on strike, we’re not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe."

I would vote for Rahm if he held a press conference with all the Faith Based Leaders and simply told the truth. It's the ghetto lifestyle that perpetuates violence. It's the nature of the BEAST that all the prayers in the world will not stop. Rahm then turn to them all and tell them to go get a REAL job and stop pandering for the drug dealers.

Like most people, these "men of God" could give a shit less about the culling of the animal/savage herd. However, if a dollar can be made or they can profit from someone else's misery they come out of the woodwork. If they gave a shit they would have been calling out the savage element for their behavior months ago. All that's left to do is stir the pot by playing the race card.

$1200 per year increase in health care cost if you choose not to participate in the wellness program. If you miss more than 3 required "activities" in a year, they drop you until fall of the following year and you have to pay the $100 per month (assuming you are married...if single, divide the cost by 2).

If you have to deal with them in anyway, shape or form, you watch your ass, period. They would as soon as take you out as they would to look at you. If you attempt to impede their agenda, you will see what they are willing and capable of. Be careful around them. Let them do their peace thing, but keep a half an eye on them.

Cops should go on strike because other people have guns? BULLSHIT. BULL FUCKING SHIT. Cops have nothing to fear from law-abiding citizens and everything to fear from criminals who run rampant because they're emboldened by gun-free zones.

Enough of this fucken bullshit already, vote these pricks out of office and replace them with someone that's got a set of balls.

Bloomberg: Bye bye. No armed guards for you, let's see how well you do schmuck.

It's starting. Now every neighborhood group is going to start protecting the streets to get in on some grant.

It's too bad the neighborhood groups had little interest in being good citizens (for free) by doing their part to curb, the crime in their neighborhood. This includes policing their children. It's sad that interest only occurs when there might be money to be made. Having said that, why hasn't ceasefire been working the magical counseling prior to securing a salary? It's not like they have to go to school for credentials. It seems that police are not the only "workers" who desire a compensatory wage for their services.

***********************************

In the mid 1990's,I was looking at some real estate to invest in on the southside. I was driving to meet my realtor and my "pager" began beeping. I pulled over to the curb at a stopsign and was checking the pager and street finder guide, when out of the corner of my eye I see a dark 4 dr sedan with "NOI Security" on the door and 2 of the biggest, meanest looking black dudes you ever saw, pulling alongside my car. They were dressed like "secret service with bowties" (lol)

Now I'm on a public way mind you..but I guess I lingered a little to long there, because they had the balls to get right along side me and say "Can we help you?" I said "No" and kept shuffling my through my papers. Next thing they are out of their vehicle and are pulling on my (locked) door handles while asking me what I was doing and to get the fuck out of here before we call the police and have you arrested. I was like "Fuck off Akmed, call the police..I'll wait!" I bluffed, they folded and left. Little did they know I had my hand on my pistol tucked between the bucket seat and console the entire time. It was an episode I'd just assume forget. They are some stone cold jag-offs! I see nothings changed.

The Nation of Islam isn't Islam, and is not recognized by real Muslims as Islam. They are a fucking cult. Rudimentary research into the NOI will expose this, but the media would never expose such an influential black man like Farrakahn as a charlatan.

Yeah, yeah. This is so old it's part of me by now, and it's never done anyone any good except for the ones who count the take.

I grew up with this PR image, the blank-faced black man with the fez and his arms folded to make them look bigger.

Half a century of these constant threats now.

Like Bill Cosby said, roughly, "Stop spending all your time trying to scare white people and go do something with your life."

It is kind of late in the day.

Our SCC correspondent from the emergency room reports chronologically grown men --

* Demanding "sugar water" to drink

* S__ting themselves so others can clean them

I think the word I'm looking for is "infantile." How can you expect someone to raise a child who is still a toddler himself?

...and so the danse macabre continues, poor confused ladies with a whole handful of RIP notices going around Burr Oak Cemetery on a boiling hot day, looking for vanished graves. How many violent deaths can there BE in a family?

William Balfour just got three consecutive life-without-possibility-of-parole sentences + 120 years "so he'll stay in prison no matter who becomes governor later." What, 47,000 in IDOC now, and climbing?

This sort of thing is going on everywhere. It's become an industry in and of itself. Health care costs will continue to skyrocket as more and more Wellness Ladies are hired and it becomes harder and harder to see an actual doctor.

The latest thing is "Cognitive Recognition Intervention" or some bulls__t -- old people stay home and talk to a Wellness Lady on the telephone, who through some magical process determines whether or not they get help or die.

There are TV commercials for career schools for Wellness Ladies, who will still be low-context, poorly-educated people from the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder, like the "pharmacy aides" who are allowed behind the counter in this state. Qualifications? 18 years old (16 with Mommy's signature) and a GED.

They can't read the doctor's instructions the same way twice, but there they are, endangering lives. It's terrifying. I have repeatedly complained to the State Board Of Professional Regulation, and urge others to do the same if they have problems.

They come cheaper than R.Ph. s -- and the price of prescription medication still doubles and redoubles overnight. The difference obviously goes into CEO salaries and bonuses...
