And THERE It Is

As predicted here almost two days ago, McLookAtMe! is claiming the murder rate is slowing:
  • Last month was one of the least deadly Julys in decades.

    Chicago’s murder total for July was the third-lowest since 1987 — a major turnabout from the first three months of the year when homicides skyrocketed, police officials said Wednesday.

    Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said his strategies are beginning to drive down shootings and slayings.

And the massive reduction in the numbers?

  • Forty-nine people were murdered in July, compared with 55 people in July 2011, according to the department.

    McCarthy attributed the decline in murders in July to a comprehensive gang violence reduction strategy he launched this year.

    “It’s taking hold,” he said.

Six. Six entire murders and the strategy is "taking hold." Never mind that six dead was about half a typical weekend in the early part of the year, and one bad week could wipe out that entire gain. One month of decreases out of the last ten does not make a trend.

Not that we wish ill on anyone, but Garry's people better look at the low numbers last August and pray that they don't get buried under an "unexpected" rise. We're still averaging over a murder a day. Crow is not a tasty dish to be eating.

Stop chasing people for dope and let nature take its course. Why risk life and limb for a city that will not back you and make them look good when it only serves to destroy the city you live in?

Am I the only beat officer who has no idea about this comprehesive gang strategy?

The only thing that has change from Jan 1 of this year and until now is that I do not have a contract and my time due now get's denied. And since patrol is the back bone of the department and patrol is doing the exact same thing they were doing Jan 1, chalk up the numbers to luck. Hell, I can produce a study that says the drop in 6 murders is do to all the shit heads being tired from their last 6 month shooting rampage.

I also like how the article relates to murders in in one month of 1987. What the fuck is that about?

McCarthy on WGN TV just now -- everything is great because of some minor alleged downward blip in local statistics over the short term.

At the same time, he dismissed reports indicating that Chicago is one of the most violent cities in the world "because you can't rely on short-term statistics."

Full of s__t again, contradictory statements issuing simultaneously from both sides of the mouth.

Say absolutely anything to hang onto that job one more day, get another paycheck. All that matters.

We need SPECIAL EMPLOYEMNT IN THE DISTRICTS. It's a bad short term solution but needed immediately.

If McDufass isn't going to hire enough police we need them in the districts so we can take a day or night off and restore some morale.

Look around, cops are exhausted; between Special Employment, Court, FAMILY RESPONSIBILITIES (all caps because that is the most important) no extra time off means cops are coming to work dead tired.

THIS IS UNSAFE!

MIAMI (AP) — The U.S. is locking up more illegal immigrants than ever, generating lucrative profits for the nation's largest prison companies, and an Associated Press review shows the businesses have spent tens of millions of dollars lobbying lawmakers and contributing to campaigns.
The cost to American taxpayers is on track to top $2 billion for this year, and the companies are expecting their biggest cut of that yet in the next few years thanks to government plans for new facilities to house the 400,000 immigrants detained annually.
After a decade of expansion, the sprawling, private system runs detention centers everywhere from a Denver suburb to an industrial area flanking Newark's airport, and is largely controlled by just three companies.
The growth is far from over, despite the sheer drop in illegal immigration in recent years.
In 2011, nearly half the beds in the nation's civil detention system were in private facilities with little federal oversight, up from just 10 percent a decade ago.
The financial boom, which has helped save some of these companies from the brink of bankruptcy, has occurred even though federal officials acknowledge privatization isn't necessarily cheaper.
This seismic shift toward a privatized system happened quietly. While Congress' unsuccessful efforts to overhaul immigration laws drew headlines and sparked massive demonstrations, lawmakers' negotiations to boost detention dollars received far less attention.
The industry's giants — Corrections Corporation of America, The GEO Group, and Management and Training Corp. — have spent at least $45 million combined on campaign donations and lobbyists at the state and federal level in the last decade, the AP found.

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

Privatization does not save money. So give us back our parking meters so the City of Chicago can get out of the hole.

The beef they got stripped over was from 2006, and they all got Rule 14.

Question for us pre-proatcive poleeces...

What is the statute of limitations on these bullshit brutality or any kind of beefs that IPRA/IAD can go back and jam us on?

Just curious...

I am hearing stories of "re-hashing" old beefs. Since there is this entity like IPRA to investigate and limited proactivity from us may mean less work for them.

Is IPRA low on caseloads?

Is someone trying to justify manpower over there or is there some sort of politcial witchhunt?

BE CAREFUL Boys and Girls that work still proactively because they like the stats but they don't and won't like you as you become successful and obtain beefs doing it....

I've been there done that and now after years of this rollercoaster ride I am ready to finally throw up!

I learned the hard way and rode this ride too long (like many other aggressive police)!

Here. Here is the chart -- from 1870 to 2008.

Everyone see for yourselves when the murder rate in this city skyrocketed.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_ZvosRi-udfc/SmY3Jd7ITVI/AAAAAAAAAog/1juTYgt5i7s/s1600-h/murderrate.JPG

Almost straight up.

Immediately after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Then the Hart-Celler Immigration Act of 1965. (Tore up quotas, established chain immigration. This was pushed by Lyndon Johnson's "advisers" left over from the Kennedy administration as "just a symbolic gesture that would never have any real impact.")

Then, as violence increased, the Gun Control Act Of 1968.

Here we are.

Why do you guys care so much? Supts come and they go. bosses come and go. who cares. The next guy will do the same thing... or he/she might not. I really dont pray and hope that the numbers will be worse next month and im not angry because we are 6 less than this time last year. Who really gives a shit? Why do blue shirts get so crazy about this stuff? Guess who looks bad when numbers are up.. the police as a whole. I know I dont want to be looked at by my friends and family as someone who doesnt care and hope that more people get killed. I was born and raised in this city. We all know chicago has always been and always be based on lies. I dont get myself involved in all that crap. The important things in my life are my family, my neighborhood, my job and my fellow blueshirts at work. Why the hell do people stress out because the supt is playing a numbers game and lying to the public. who cares? let him, if he gets caught lying then thats his problem. No reason for us to hope next month gets him or he eats crow.. he will dig himself a hole all on his own. Most every supt has done so. rodriguez, hillard, cline, weis and now mccarthy. each of them had something big that made them leave being the supt. its not worth me and you getting stressed out. we are police officers, we are not reporters(well, except for scc), we are not polititians and we are not bosses. let them deal with their own lies... I could care less. Try going to work stress free. Honestly, people complain about this job so much. Youve got 9 hours to be here. Who cares if you get jobs. go there, take your time, write your paper and inject humor for the rest of the tour. Dont get caught up in politics, numbers, etc. You dont have to do anything proactive if you dont want... if you do, then write a few parkers. If you can lock someone up for domestic, trespass etc then hell with it.. do it. It will keep you sharp. stop worrying about the numbers..we all know its bullshit. look straight, take care of eachother and stop worrying about the bullshit.

Welp, are you ready for this?

While the AHCA restricts illegal immigrants from being covered you should not worry.

On Aug. 15, 2012 Obama will provide back-door amnesty to over one million illegal immigrants by issuing them two year work permits -- thereby making the illegals legal.

So now they are elig. for their health care while we cut our own seniors health care to pay for it all right?

We also wonder the impact on the unemployment numbers this event will trigger.

With a work force of about 140 million, 1.4 million people added to the legal workforce is 1% of that population!

Do your T's and cross your I's. IPRA's new napolian is really looking for heads.

Make that report and take your time. If you do anything else. Your an idiot!

And YOU'RE (not "your") an idiot for not knowing it's "Do(t) your I's and cross your T's".

We appreciate the (quasi-convoluted) message though, Merit Supervisor. Time for you to get back to monitoring the worker drones on your fancy-schmancy GPS computer. Maybe try and tune-in "Napolian" Dynamite on that monitor while you're at it.

Idiot.

Mcdipshit got schooled on the news this am. Also promising 500 more new hires this year.

What was that Chalkie's? 3 shot and two dead in 011 this afternoon. Good thing violence reduction is working well could have been ugly otherwise.

How about we cut patrol officers salaries by 1/3. Isn't that where "the rubber meets the road"? Isn't that where real crime fighting takes place?

There were only 4 Saturday nights in July 2012 compared to 5 Saturday nights in July 2011. So, we had 1 less Saturday night this year which definitely helped reduced our total number of dead. Not sure if McCarthy can take credit for inventing the calender we follow, but he just might.

Wow. I just saw GMAC on channel 9 news spinning his numbers. According to him we went from a +45% to a -5% in homicides and according to him "...that's a 50% swing".
Does he think he can just say ANYTHING and the sheeple will believe him? Oh yea, that's right...they DO.
He's mixing apples and oranges. We were up 45% cumulatively THRU June. We were down 5% for the month of JULY ONLY. The way he makes it sound we are down 50% cumulatively Jan-July. He's taking a cumulative number and subtracting a monthly number. Anyone who has taken a basic stats class will tell you he is playing games.

Heard McCarthy on WLS 890 with Roe and Roeper.

It's not even funny or irritating anymore. It's just plain sad.

He said outside forces like CeaseFire and Fruits of Islam don't help the police force, the Police need to be viewed as "legitimate".

He may have a point there, but in order to be "legitimate", you would first have to get rid of all the clout/merit white shirts and put in real cops who had real police experience through the ranks. You would also have to follow through at the State's attorney's office to prosecute criminals to the fullest.

Well, we know that won't happen so the CPD will just keep stumbling along. Murder rates will go up.

Time for the citizens to have a fighting chance with CCW because there are not enough good cops to cover the city.

Rahm has also lost credibility big time with his Chick-Fil-A comment.

"Chicago values" is an oxymoron. With emphasis on the "moron".

Chicago needs real leadership. Once that happens, CPD will get real leadership.

Until then, hacks like Rahm and McCarthy will continue to bring down the spirit as well as the image of the City of Chicago by going into the spotlight and demonstrating they are way above their skill set.

How about this math. Supt says we were up 45% in homicides thru June. Then we were down 5% or July. According to his math that is. A "50% swing". Is he f-ing joking. You can't subtract a one month percentage from a yearly percentage. Does he think we are idiots?

Plus just because the murder rate went down does not mean that your plan is working when the number of people being shot has gone up last month.
that only means that the ER professionals & paramedics are saving more people. Or the shooters are getting worst. Or a combination of the 2.

McCarthy you are such a f&*king handjob saying stuff like that.
Now wonder you got the job.

So, this July (2012) had only four weekends and had a few less homicides than July 2011, which had FIVE weekends.

AND, last August (2011) had only four weekends and had a rather light homicide count. This year, (2012) August has FIVE weekends, so the numbers should go through the roof this month.

Nobody, not McCarthy and not anyone on the blog, has given the gangbangers proper credit - for getting their work done early.

They took down so many targets in April, May and June that there just weren't enough victims left to set new records in July.

I bet they were under budget too, but is anybody here going to pat them on the back? People are too stingy with credit.
