Worth 1,000 Words

What does this picture say?

It shows McTool in the background while his boss speaks.

Now what does the picture say when it's posted with this headline and paragraph?
  • Cops treading water? Emanuel says no

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel tried Monday to skin back ­— ­or at least clarify — Police Supt. Garry McCarthy’s claim that Chicago Police are “treading water” in the fight against violence after another weekend bloodbath on Chicago streets.

    “I talked to Garry about that. That’s not [what he meant]. What he was talking about is a particular area at a particular point. Overall . . . crime is down 9-to-10 percent.

The picture has a tiny little caption saying it was taken back in July, but Fran Spielman does her dirty work for Rahm well. Our initial take just based on the article is that Rahm is removing McJersey's testicles and waving them around for everyone to see. Add the picture and the public castration takes on even more significance.

And in case anyone missed it, Rahm is now directly involved in deciding police policy:
  • After another violent weekend with a concentration of shootings in a single South Side neighborhood, Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Monday said he wants to bring a police crackdown to Greater Grand Crossing.

    Nine people were killed and 32 wounded last weekend in Chicago. A third of the homicides and roughly 40 percent of the shootings were in that one neighborhood.

    "We now have to deal with what's happening in Grand Crossing over the weekend," Emanuel said at an unrelated news conference.

    Emanuel wants a crackdown that involves saturating roughly 16-square-block areas with police, eliminating corner drug markets and having officers stay there to maintain the peace. The mayor has credited the approach with reducing homicides in two of the city's most dangerous areas.

So why even conduct a "nationwide" search for a superintendent, spend months touting his crime fighting skills, publicly and pointedly demonstrate full support for his gutting the specialized units to fulfill your lie about "1,000 more cops on the street" and then turn around and end up personally directing the police to "saturate" a few square miles of an out-of-control populace with what's left of a gutted department? If Rahm is taking the wheel, McLastDays is probably being eased out of the loop.

Why even have a superintendent at all?

So they now want to saturate an area with teams.

Or maybe they could send some sort of response unit to target a hot area.

Perhaps they can have some sort of mobile force that can strike in these hot zones.

These would all be very new ideas and they should take full credit for implementing them. Democrats are geniuses. The rest of us should be in awe.

Rams Emanuel is a straight up a liar!!

Crime is down because there are less cops on the street. They arent making arrests like they used to because they are significantly undermanned.

Keep on lying Rahms.. cpd has about 8000 cops right now. Mostly sent to the ghetto neighborhoods rather than protecting the downtown tax payers.

Keep on lying Rahms!!

I was thinking back to what I sensed when I first heard about McCarthy and I was, unfortunately, right -- an alien, an East Coast bureaucrat with a head full of CompStat and "legitimacy" and other socio-politico-psycho-nonsense -- and from what little filters down to me, apparently a dangerous, violent drunk and domestic abuser.

Too much baggage for such a difficult job. Embarrassment. Confusion. Chaos. FAILURE.

Time to go.

God, grant us a good decent family man for a superintendent, one who has not been considered before, a Chicago policeman who came up through the ranks and knows the city and its problems.

Rahm's "World Class City Showcase"

A video Juxtaposition.

This is a test. Can you find any white people and/or the cops in this first video?

Chicago Thugs Terrorizing People on Michigan Ave.

...and here is what the mass media presents.


Cops everywhere. Cops on horseback, cops on street corners. Groups of cops gathered around the wagon. Cops driving by in cruisers. Bicycle cops.

Can you find ANY black people in this video? That's funny because the headline reads "Black Flash Mob" I don't see one. Where? What mob? I don't see a mob.

Oh look...there goes a young couple pushing a baby stroller with their twins in it. Downtown must be so safe. Families are there right?

Heh..wonder if that couple is the same one that almost had his kid kidnapped at the infamous Daley Plaza?

The streets are not crowded at all compared to the first video. I don't think that there is any group above four people in the second video.

Do you think Main Stream Media is presenting a fair representation of the news?

Chicago has unique problems that cannot be solved by legislation. The problems are cultural. No law can fight that.

Most of the gang-bangers are killing other gang-bangers. So what? Let 'em.

The homicide rate doesn't affect most of the decent people. Gang banger victims shouldn't be counted in the same homicide rate as "normal" people.

Unfortunately there is sometimes collateral damage. Those are the offenders that must be captured and vociferously prosecuted. When innocents are killed the animals responsible must be punished to the full extent of the law. Regrettably, that no longer includes the death penalty in Illinois.

While I support concealed carry, it won't help stop the gang-bangers killing other gang-bangers. Again, let 'em.

This is just another shining example of Rahm knowing what is best for everyone. Remember last year when he hired Brizzard as the head of the schools?? He wouldn't let the guy take questions for the first few days. The guy just stood there like McCarthy is in that picture. Now he tells us that the "treading water " statement isn't what the Supe meant. Hell, he spoke for the entire city with the Chick-Fil-A debacle. Now he's in charge of manpower deployment because Rahm knows best...about everything. Now be quiet and ignore the gun violence, the downtown wildings, the increase in your taxes, water bill, and city stickers, and the fact that we are on the road to Detroit. Rahm knows best.

I find it funny how you keep saying that Garry's days are numbered. This will not happen until he makes a run for Durbin's senate seat. If Garry was fired rahm would be admitting he made a bad choice and we all know his ego wouldn't allow that. The only thing I could possibly see happen is that Garry steps down and I don't see him agreeing to that because his days nationwide would be numbered. We are stuck with him until November 2014.

McTool was just on the Don & Roma show yesterday morning talking about how he isn't going to do what they've done in the past which is saturate an area just to have violence pop up somewhere else. He defended this by saying that the local community felt like they were under siege when the police did this and that is when "people had they're civil rights violated." Yes, he said that police were violating people's civil rights by aggressively patrolling these areas. Wasn't he the one who bragged to the media about how he was going to "get in people's waistbands" himself? Whatever happened to the new mobile force that people volunteered for? My guess is that not enough people volunteered to have it be a useful tool. Either way, looks like Rahm is making the decisions when it comes to policing matters.

McWacky and Rahm (it up your ass)both know the scam is over. They know they can't "do more with less". As to Garry's exit, they are both thinking of ways to make his exit not seem like the epic fail it is. They will come up with the usual, "McWacky was offered the opportunity of a lifetime to exit the public sector for a venture in the private sector (security consultant)". It would be a breath of fresh air if both just came clean on this. McWacky: I just can't do this job anymore. I am not being given the manpower necessary for battling this amount crime and I refuse to bend over for this mayor, Goodbye! Rahm: When I interviewed McWacky for this position I was impressed with his east coast credentials and his comstat background. I was mistaken and fooled by the east coast snake oil salesman. I was wrong and I'm sorry. we will move ahead with a new supe to be hired from this dept with additional new hires.

I agree, but can you really think of one of our bosses who is competent and not ball-less?
Most are idiots and/or have sold their soul by being a yes man to McHandjob.
The only exempt I can think of is Tom Byrne (chief of det's??). He was the street deputy about 8 years ago who arrived on a fatal traffic accident involving an ODPO. He treated all of the Officers with total class and didn't have the "I'm better than you" attitude. He treated us all with the utmost respect and that's hard to find in our hierarchy. I'd say non- existent....

Emanuel and friends will grind this mess for every penny they can get out of it and then just pass the whole slum to someone else in the Inner Party. It's just one long continuous "administration."

It's everything. "CTA says 'F__k You' to riders who absolutely hate new New York-style subway cars"

They are wiping out northwest side bus routes in the name of saving money to use in "decrowding" the trains -- but they put in sardine-pack design trains.

Sweat and rub and pay, pay, pay. Ride these for the next 40 years. We'll paint over the windows with advertising, too, so you can hardly see out.

It's not like anyone who matters rides them...

I have to agree with the previous post, Tom Byrne would make a great replacement for McCarthy!

--- is he kidding himself, does anyone really think that this spoiled little liberal north shore brat could give 2 shits about what goes on in the 006 district--- sleep soundly in your little castle on hermitage every night while armed police officers guard the outside of your house and please stop trying to fool the public into thinking that you care about what happens to them....

If he dosent give two shits about what goes on in 006, why do you? Do you live at 79th and Halsted? Fuck that Dist. Its going to be a shithole untill it gets "re-gentrfied" by other than the rats that live there now.

"To hear that officers actually went golfing with this fool is sickening. Un-fking believable."

They wanted to rekindle the magic of fondling his balls @ Nato.

"Yes, we know. Keep it away from you, personally, in your particular condominium unit."

As far as keeping the killing away from me goes, the coppers out my way been doing a fine job and I'm happy to have assisted in those efforts for the past 2½+ decades.



"Have a nice day, sir."

Every day's a nice day when you're retired. You be careful, son.

The only exempt I can think of is Tom Byrne (chief of det's??). He was the street deputy about 8 years ago who arrived on a fatal traffic accident involving an ODPO. He treated all of the Officers with total class and didn't have the "I'm better than you" attitude. He treated us all with the utmost respect and that's hard to find in our hierarchy. I'd say non- existent....

Yeah. Tom Bryne is a nice enough guy who doesn't have the I'm better than you attitude, BECAUSE HE ISN'T.

Merit promoted over his head, runs the detective division having never been a dick, and it shows. Him and Dean the Queen have come up with some seriously fucked up ideas for the d unit.

Anniversary calls to dead victim's families, parallel homicide investigation? WTF

Dean is a hanger-on. Byrne is a good man, but pretty young to take the reins. McNulty might still be in the city...

black politicians always use race card when an area is flooded with agressive officers from the disbanded units sos,msf & tru.
when assigned to areas in black areas , do not make on view street stops , respond only to radio assignments . gang banger shoots gangbanger , gangbanger shoots at cop and the neighborhood has blinders on . Police hit or shoot someone in self defense and they are out of the wood work like cockroaches with made up stories.
write reports for every crime.
write parking tickets , they think that's racist .

...and I salute you for it. Apology owed.

You are a gentleman and a scholar.

You can tell some of the "property, property, property"-owning yuppies have made a bad impression on me over the years. "Not in my backyard" thing.

I wish there were a way to separate out requests for service, prosecutions, etc. but you can't use half the city as it is, it is jungle law there. There are a lot of "decent people" trying to make their way through it all, too. They just don't have the means to get out. You don't hear much from them -- we have had old people die from heat partly because they are afraid to even open their windows where they live. Something will be crawling in right away. I feel that the high crime rate affects everyone.

Without a massive societal change, we will continue to have to try to enforce the law everywhere, not just with diminishing means to do so but with "leaders" of various interest groups actively making things worse. It ain't pretty.

God bless, be safe, and go get a cold one. Labor Day already!
