Don't Move.....

  • A hooded gunman shot and wounded a man on the Gold Coast this morning, Chicago police said.

    The 41-year-old man was shot near State and Chestnut streets about 5 a.m., police said, citing early reports.


    The man was taken to nearby Northwestern Memorial Hospital, but his condition wasn't immediately available.


    The shooting happened on the sidewalk at 7 E. Chestnut St., outside the Tempo restaurant.

    The victim told police he was leaving the restaurant with three young women when the offender approached and said, "Don't move."
The Gold Coast, hmmmm? Mistaken identity? Of just another instance of the "wilding" crowd getting a little ....well, wild. In any event, not a headline Rahm wants to see on anything approaching a regular basis. With the media in his pocket though, that's not too likely.

Rahm probably won't even read the headlines because he's going to Florida to stump for his idol Obama. I wonder if he's taking a few V-Days or Personal Days to convince the Jewish voters in Fla to vote for the turd? I guess the rules only apply to us that we can't campaign for a candidate while on the city's dime. Oh well, keep completing the Ethics classes yearly or face discipline.

I was at FOP meeting last night, and yes i do go to all of the meetings even when the FOP book is wrong with the times. TO the FOP, you guys were getting pretty hot last night when questions were being asked. One question that was asked was how much money do you guys make? for some reason the members might be clueless to this, so let me get this info into light.... the reps are making captains pay- and the prez is making D-8. I am not here to have people say you an as*shole for telling the blog what they make it is information that anyone can get. Second, to the female officer who asked what we asked for in the next contract. Thank you. Rich--- there is no need to get upset, i understand you can not disclose what we are asking for because of the gentleman agreement with the city, but last time i checked the city doesnt play fair. Instead of getting upset because she kept asking realize that in about say less then 2 years or so us members could be making less money in our checks then we are right now. So i think it is at least fair to ask the question what did we ask for. Again what the fop fails to realize is that you guys are making all of you over 100,000 and most of the membership will never come close to that amount of money. And to sit there and say because we get called at 3am to go to shootings that is why we get paid that money. Well just a reality check to that none of us want to get into shootings, nor for that matter i am sure most of us dont want to have to stay late on jobs but it happens. Yes we can check the money box, or the time box.. But lets be real which district is allowing you to use comp time when you want to use it. We cant. The Fop is off weekends, and im sure no one is checking when they want time on the end or front. I am not here to DOG out the FOP. I am here stating facts. And Mike Lappe- my friend you are a fine example of a real chicago police officer, you have my vote. You are truly a gentleman. My brothers and sisters of the Fop. If this contract goes south, which it possibly can realize this FOP didnt have our backs all the way. And to explain that how often do the guys come out to the roll calls. How often when you can do they say ummm not sure let me get back to you and never do. Im not saying have all the answers right now, but how bout do what you guys promised come to the roll calls yes even midnights. Are we in for a battle- yes. Are we going to possibly have to fight long and hard for our pension- yes. Could we make less money with this contract then we are currently making right now --yes. Do you feel like our FOP is failing us--- answer that question how u you feel it should be answer. But one question i am sure we have to ask ourselves did Karen Lewis fail the teachers---NO. Is Mike shields failing us---- ???. Well i hope you guys understand why i wrote this. It is not to banish anyone, it is to just clearly state facts.

OK, forgive me unprofessional speculation; leaving this joint at 5 AM with three women? "What if" this was a hypothetical end-of-shift breakfast, and there was an entitlement problem regarding a percentage of the night's proceeds.

Surely it would be the first time that such an event was known to occur in Chicago, which city is normally a shining example of good behavior by all.

Rahm is not unlike the series of "People's Commissars" who served at Stalin's pleasure.

They showed how loyal they were by playing an active part in having their successive predecessors dragged out of the Kremlin kicking, crying and shitting their pants en route to the Lubyanka to be force fed the business end of a Tokarev along with their confederates...

Our history is a bit foggy but we recall reading that Stalin had one done in because he was "over-zealous" in carrying out death sentences... But on Stalin's orders of course.

Rahm is trying to show "The Party" how indisposable he is. Notice how shrill, desperate and scared shitless he sounds and looks?

Rahm & Co., Daley Inc., the criminal-political-media apparatus, the gold coast/north shore phony charity money laundering & campaign fund/toxic lefty-liberal causes contributing bunch are frightened out of their wits.

They're afraid that His High & Hollow-Assedness The Fakir of Fuckery aka Sparkle-Farts, Prime Minister of Pants Pootery is going to be given his walking papers.

The electorate will shine their shoes on the seat of his pants.

Sparkle-Farts?

A useful idiot?
A fall guy?
A Daley Inc. created cardboard cut-out propelled to power as insurance against being "scrootened" with prejudice by the feebs?

We choose door #3...
-JACKPOT!-

BTW... Fuck those insane poll numbers the Wizard of Spin (Axelrod) keeps touting.

Just because the electoral pool in Chicago needs a prejudicial amount of bleach to remedy the apparent contagion of stupidity doesn't mean the nation as a whole is thus affected.

Speaking of Stalin and such...

NO ONE has recently seen hide nor stinking hair of the main muthafuckah in whose mouth butter doesn't even melt.

The Clown Prince of all that is Chicago Political Fuckery metastasized into a God-Awful national cancer... The Stuttering Prick himself.

Oh wait... He just sold his house to his daughter and son-in-law.

Hopefully the opposing campaign is smart enough to avail themselves to some perspective from "Ground Zero" of where our national sorrows sprang from...

Hint... Really BIG hint! :^)

Maybe the opposing candidate will have the nerve to convene a Coffee & Common-Sense Talk Summit with some "disaffected citizens" from Sparkle-Fart's hometown?

Potential public relations coup!

*BCP sinister laughter at the thought of flamin' hot tutu tearing himself in half and slapping McPayMeToGoAway in the back of his head and screaming "do something about those #$%@& Cops! They're wrecking OUR PLANS!"

PLEASE DO IT!

PLEASE burn vast swaths of Chicago's West and South Sides to a crisp and let the BULLSHIT be exposed once and for all...

Meh... maybe not...

The Police will still be damned as the enemy in this town.

We didn't break it...
It's too far gone to rotteness for us to fix even if we were empowered to do so...

Chicago is a skull with mud-filled eye sockets turned upward and grinning at everything and nothing at all...

One question that was asked was how much money do you guys make? for some reason the members might be clueless to this, so let me get this info into light.... the reps are making captains pay- and the prez is making D-8. I am not here to have people say you an as*shole for telling the blog what they make it is information that anyone can get. Second, to the female officer who asked what we asked for in the next contract. Thank you. Rich--- there is no need to get upset, i understand you can not disclose what we are asking for because of the gentleman agreement with the city, but last time i checked the city doesnt play fair. Instead of getting upset because she kept asking realize that in about say less then 2 years or so us members could be making less money in our checks then we are right now. So i think it is at least fair to ask the question what did we ask for. Again what the fop fails to realize is that you guys are making all of you over 100,000 and most of the membership will never come close to that amount of money. And to sit there and say because we get called at 3am to go to shootings that is why we get paid that money. Well just a reality check to that none of us want to get into shootings, nor for that matter i am sure most of us dont want to have to stay late on jobs but it happens. Yes we can check the money box, or the time box.. But lets be real which district is allowing you to use comp time when you want to use it. We cant. The Fop is off weekends, and im sure no one is checking when they want time on the end or front. I am not here to DOG out the FOP. I am here stating facts. And Mike Lappe- my friend you are a fine example of a real chicago police officer, you have my vote. You are truly a gentleman. My brothers and sisters of the Fop. If this contract goes south, which it possibly can realize this FOP didnt have our backs all the way. And to explain that how often do the guys come out to the roll calls. How often when you can do they say ummm not sure let me get back to you and never do. Im not saying have all the answers right now, but how bout do what you guys promised come to the roll calls yes even midnights. Are we in for a battle- yes. Are we going to possibly have to fight long and hard for our pension- yes. Could we make less money with this contract then we are currently making right now --yes. Do you feel like our FOP is failing us--- answer that question how u you feel it should be answer. But one question i am sure we have to ask ourselves did Karen Lewis fail the teachers---NO. Is Mike shields failing us---- ???. Well i hope you guys understand why i wrote this. It is not to banish anyone, it is to just clearly state facts.

I'll say it again. FOP is a FLOP. Mike "sellout" Shields does not deserve D8 pay. Yes he is failing us. There is no doubt about that.

I believe that the female officer that was complaining about the contract at Fop meeting is mad at Fop because her brother did something stupid off duty and was fired. She blames FOP and now is just trying to be a thorn. None of this is anything that we care about at a meeting.

You don't care about our contract? Uh ok. Go work for free then. Rahm must love you.

Ask the FOP how many negotiating meetings they have had with the city. That's the key question. The answer is only ONE. There are no negotiations in progress. The number of meetings should not be a secret.

The city will negotiate but that they can pull out any time and take the position that FOP has a contract for another year since FOP missed the deadline for sending notice to the city on FOP's intent to negotiate (remember that fiasco last spring?). FOP therefore has no leverage. If FOP pushes a little too hard, then the city invokes the clause regarding notice to negotiate and Shields' incompetence costs the membership dearly (e.g. no retro anything for this year).

Sounds like Shields wants to keep this buried by not negotiating in earnest until next summer (hopefully he won't miss next spring's deadline). The contract would then not be settled until AFTER next year's FOP election. The problem is that the membership gets screwed in the process.

According to the Alderman this perceived violence happened when a perceived gun made a perceived hole in the victims leg.

Rahm probably won't even read the headlines because he's going to Florida to stump for his idol Obama. I wonder if he's taking a few V-Days or Personal Days to convince the Jewish voters in Fla to vote for the turd? I guess the rules only apply to us that we can't campaign for a candidate while on the city's dime. Oh well, keep completing the Ethics classes yearly or face discipline. Hello Inspector General, you getting this?

I'm so looking forward to seeing the looks on the crooked Illinois democratic party's leaders faces at McCormick Place when The One is denied a second term.

There should be some great close ups and clips of Rahm scowling on stage. Yes this will be an event to remember.

If The One happened to miraculously lose Illinois too......that would be the cherry on top.

Thank you for the information. Captain's pay is way too much money. When I call the FOP for assistance, the reps blow me off. They discourage the members from going forward with an issue. And they blame the officer for the officer's problem.

Surely it would be the first time that such an event was known to occur in Chicago, which city is normally a shining example of good behavior by all. Gold Coast Auto wreckers
