All is Well!



Nothing to see here.  Move along.  Keep spending money you touristy-types:
  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Monday pointed to this weekend’s Magnificent Mile Lights Festival ceremony as proof that the city’s upper-crust Gold Coast is safe — despite two violent incidents there within 24 hours.

    “We had 1 million people and not a single incident” during the popular Saturday evening festival along Michigan Avenue, Emanuel told reporters.


    The stabbing of a festival visitor inside a bathroom of a Michigan Avenue hotel occurred about an hour after the festival concluded.
"not a single incident," aside from those people with the gaping knife wounds. And the jagoffs trying to run over the cop.  But if it didn't happen between certain hours, in full view of the television cameras....

Rahm is sure a big (figuratively speaking) fan of "if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does anyone have to say anything at the CompStat meeting?"

    Rahm is full of shit. The parade may have been over but the detail was still ongoing. Parade goers were still being funneled off of Michigan Ave. It was an officer detailed to the parade who on-viewed the offender with the knife inside the Cheesecake Factory immediately after the stabbing. If that officer, and the other nearby units who were detailed to the parade, weren't there there's no telling what else would have happened. Thank God there were nearby "outside" units. This just affirms how understaffed the CPD really is.

    You mean Inspector Toby Burton? The Toby Burton that tried to write up the entire Area 3 Detective Division for theft of city property in that they were using their personally owned typewriters that were electricaly operated and since the dics were plugging them into city electrical outlets he thought that the charge of theft of city property would be appropriate? That Toby Burton?

    no, it's because they know, from ample experience, that the victims will offer no significant resistance, beyond feeble yelping.

    We are visiting Mounties from Quebec. While attending the Light Festival the other night we entered a restaurant and a movie theater. We encountered signs stating, "Properly fitting attire required".
    The only thing we could make out from the signage was that these establishments were attempting to deny service to the less fortunate that have to wear hand-me-downs.
    What manner of brotherly love is that?

    Ah, it looks like some more special employment jobs for officers to work their days off. By using the various forms of special employment (violence reduction) you don't need to hire more police officers, just use the ones you got.

    Rahm is on total Bullshit and I just don't know why our police unions, all of them don't respond to his lies, Rahm says the parade was over, yes that's true but the police were still on post and the streets were still closed to traffic, if it wasn't for Lt. Bob Stasch and his crew from 23, this offender would have been in the wind, There are not enough police period. There were other calls of 100 youths running down Michigan Ave right after the parade, and what about the group of 15-20 that robbed 2 people in different incidents right at Chicago and LSD. This area used to be pristene, no creatures running about, but nobody has the BALLS to say it like it is, IT is BLACK KIDS acting out against WHITE VICTIMS, jealous of things and lazy, not wanting to work, using the age old excuse that, I'm Black nobody will give me a job, NOT, it's because you are LAZY, USELESS and want Everything for Nothing.

    McClueless actually stated on the news that "Michigan Avenue is safer than it has been in 30 years". If these damn reporters (finally) and SCC would just stop informing people of all that goes on, there wouldn't be a problem.

    Hello, stupid. I believe SCC's point is that your twinkle-toes corruptocrat mayor is a liar.

    BTW, a GED is equivalent to a high school diploma and may be, especially in Chicago, proof of a higher level of education than a Chicago Public School high school diploma. You see, you have to pass a series of tests to get a GED.

    I am not a member of the CPD, nor do I live in Chicago, or Illinois for that matter. However, the officers of the CPD seem to be working as hard as they can to keep the sewer from overflowing. It's just a shame that all the help they seem to be getting from above is: "You missed a spot."

    No sir, you are the fng idiot. The news is bullshit, our leaders are bullshit and the truth is so cleverly hidden no one can get to the bottom. This is not an accident. CPD, despite their occasional fuckups are decent hardworking people and they go out day after day and put their lives on the line for jackasses such as yourself. So to summarize, go fuck yourself.
