Private Security Being Hired

Someone is realizing that they can't count on the deterrent effect of police if there are no police around to deter:
  • For the last couple of days, things have been pretty tame in Boystown, particularly on North Halsted Street... now we know why.

    According to the folks at the Take Back Boystown Facebook page, armed security officers, dressed in yellow shorts and bullet proof vests, are patrolling the area.

    The private security team was allegedly hired by the Northhalsted Business Alliance.

We daresay that this is Rahm's ultimate goal - cut back on police and count on business and community groups to come up with the difference in coverage. We imagine some initial resistance from some, but peer pressure will force them to toe the line at some point. Rahm continues to get to cut manpower and shifts liability from the city to security companies.

Of course, if any of these security companies end up with a liability issue for injuring, maiming or killing someone, they go under and the rates climb for anyone else doing this sort of business. The costs get passed to the business associations and who knows where it all ends. Probably with more businesses fleeing the un-re-gentrifying areas.

Did we just invent a word? "Un-re-gentrifying" describes the decreasing of the increase of the portions of the city formerly uninhabitable. Or something.

Here's the problem. They're all off-duty cops working for the guy who is the district's business liaison officer and he does not own a legal security license. And he's working for the business alliance (ethics problem too?) I fear that these guys are opening themselves up to some heavy liability if and when the trouble hits. And I don't want to see any more cops jammed up.

Correct me if I am wrong. Would this be taxation without representation?

They are paying taxes and license fees for the business in boys town. Now they must pay for private security to protect the business. Sounds like goodfellas

What is next tell the tax payers in 16 and 22 to fend for themself or hire private security to protect them.

Cannot wait to get out of Dodge City. Shame on you Mayor and Superintendent You are not the answer You are part of the problem.

Have any of you seen the movie Cuffs starring Christian Slater? San Francisco. Basically neighborhoods own the police districts and have to pay the salary of any hired police for that jurisdiction. The district is family owned sort of and past down as long as the community pays. That was a movie. I bet Rahm loved it.

Looks like we are going in that direction too. They are beginning to eliminate calls that require police response. Not to this extent, just yet, but I can definitely see no police response for any reports in the near future. Reduced and/or no police service for the taxpayers but rahm and daley still have 24hr/7 day/wk security payed for by the same taxpayers who now have to pay for private armed security guards all because these thieving mayors (and aldermen) have cut the budget for the police dept. and now are using the few remaining resources and manpower left to guard them and their families. Unf*ckingbelievable!! Didn't they behead the aristocracy when they became fed up with the oppression in France just a few centuries ago??

Because generally the cars are pieces of shit and unsafe, that's why the Turd Watch hasn't taken the cars. As for doing the job your paid for..paper jobs and crime scenes, overlapping coverage for the shift change was created for the increase of manpower at those times. What, you might have to work a complete shift, who is looking to hide in a hole and milk the paper job you were just mewing about? 3-5 years ago (when you were still in the academy) we had cars, they have since broken down and have not been replaced just scrapped. You haven't been around to long enough to complain. You are an adult,grow up, shut your mouth and try to do more than a TVB.
P.S. By the way one bagging a hype or inventorying seeds is not police work, FYI. Rant off.

I thought private guards were only allowed to carry to and from their workplace (a specific physical address) on workdays, and by the shortest route possible.

@ worst 12 cities:

I realize Baltimore is only #12, but like the late George Jefferson (RIP), we're "movin' on up"!

"What’s wrong with this picture: Arizona and Alabama pass legislation mandating that police officers enforce Federal immigration laws – and are sued for doing so by the Federal government. And now this: a mayor of a major city orders her police to REFUSE to enforce those laws – and will face no lawsuit whatsoever.

The inmates are truly running the asylum in America, when it comes to illegal immigration.

The latest demonstration of this finds Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake of Baltimore, MD, ordering the city police and all other agencies to prohibit any inquiry about citizenship status “to protect new Americans from discrimination.” The Mayor is signing an executive order that effectively stops any local enforcement of federal immigration laws.

The order also states that no city money or resources may be used to question, investigate, or arrest based on actual or suspected violation of federal immigration laws. Mayor Blake said:

“Throughout Baltimore’s great history, we have strived to be a place that welcomes foreign-born residents to participate fully in civic life, recognizing that our city’s ethnic and cultural diversity is a key element to strong and growing neighborhoods,” Mayor Rawlings-Blake said. “This new Executive Order clarifies existing anti-discrimination policies and local law enforcement practices in Baltimore and makes clear that discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated under any circumstances.”

So we can’t have “discrimination” between law-abiding citizens and law-breaking invaders? Shall we also end discrimination against burglars – er, “undocumented houseguests” – as well?

Here is the mayor in her own words:

If you are familiar with the lawless madhouse called Maryland these days, you will recognize this absurd and insulting term: “New American” – the Soros Left’s appelation for illegal aliens. In fact it is George Soros’ own brother Paul who coined this term, and who, with brother George, funds radical hate groups groups like CASA de Maryland and National Council of La Raza (and through their political allies, arrange hefty taxpayer grants for them as well).

Gov. Martin O’Malley has a separate Council for New Americans to cater to the “rights” of illegal aliens (and Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago recently created the same in America’s 3rd largest city)...."

One big reason -- Hart-Celler Immigration Act of 1965. Tore up quotas, began "chain immigration." The population of the US has DOUBLED in my lifetime, and another 150 million will have arrived by 2050.

"The previous [Oakland, Calif.] police chief decided that his department would no longer be able to respond to all crimes..."

Anyone with the means to do so will continue to leave, leaving behind only predators and prey.

Descending spiral.

cpd should have 12 hour shifts 0900 to 2100 and 2100 to 0900
this would require officers to work an entire shift
get rid of district tact teams
they work 6-7hrs a day
have a citywide unit run by a sgt

Definitely a shocking reality check. By year's end, I'm retired. We will be out of the #2 U.S. hellhole in a heartbeat.

THE WORST DOZEN U.S. HELLHOLES (ranked)

1. Gary, IN
2. CHICAGO
3. Detroit, MI
4. Stockton, CA
5. Flint, MI
6. Philadelphia, PA
7. Cleveland, OH
8. Camden, NJ
9. St. Louis, MO
10. New Orleans, LA
11. Oakland, CA
12. Baltimore, MD

Sad. So very sad. I pray for our children and grandchildren. Our once great nation is dying with Chicago in the forefront. Hopeless and irreversible. USA=DOA. God help us.
But we got Motorola. LOL

My favorite part of this story are all the people here backhandedly insulting Boys Town... you know, if you would have just done your job, there wouldn't be a story to read about.

So I'm curious.... can whatever equipment they're packing out there accidentally fire if it hits the ground? One was so fat he couldn't keep his drawers up on that big hiney and his piece and other equipment kept pulling his pants down (with no belt). Quite frankly, some of them look no different then the hoodlums they're supposed to be protecting the neighborhood from. I don't doubt their capabilities but they need to make a better "presence" so to speak.

I didn't know the had dress codes! It's too damn hot in Austin to dress, so most everyone looks like Louie CK, but with ear lobe gaskets. Do you have anything published I could order? I am good for shortish articles online, but anything over a few pages and I get cross-eyed. Also, Do you ever do the fests down here, SXSW or Fantastic Fest?
