"We're Doing Better"

  • Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy on Monday touted the department's crime-fighting strategies in tamping down the city's murder rate since earlier this year when homicides skyrocketed.

    "This is not a zero-sum game. There has to be a recognition that we're doing better," McCarthy told reporters at a news conference at police headquarters. "I can't change what happened in the first quarter. What I can do, is to fix it going forward."

Well, if you want the credit now, then you have to take the blame from before, and even Stevie Wonder could see that disbanding the citywide response units ended up directly affecting the number of killings by a complete lack of response to the mayhem. We used to be able to shut neighborhoods down - not so much anymore.
  • By April, homicides had soared 66 percent in Chicago compared with a year earlier, but that rate has been gradually brought down to about an 18 percent increase at this point, McCarthy said.

    McCarthy credited the reduction to the city's decision to demolish more vacant buildings, arrest more gang members and focus police attention on individuals who are more likely to commit crimes. In general, the city is seeing less overall crime that it did decades ago, McCarthy said.

Really? Now we're claiming a lack of vacant buildings as a crime fighting tool? Next, are we going to say the weather actually DOES effect the crime rate? Because you wouldn't know it checking today's stats, something like 3 or 4 dead on a Monday when the temps never got above 37 degrees.

And seriously, an 18% increase in the homicide count is nothing to brag about. Who gives a shit if it was at 66% for 3 months this year? Statistics are a long term proposition. We could argue killings are down 400% in the last hour since no one has died via gunfire, but we'd look like idiots.
  • "The city is enjoying the lowest crime rate it has had in 30 years," McCarthy said. "We might be in a position where we are leading the nation in crime reduction."
Sure it is.  If we set 1,000 fires tonight, we could claim that arson is down tomorrow because we ran out of buildings to burn. This CompStat is so much bullshit and the guy running the calculator is stacking it five stories high.

SCC... you hit it on the head, they eliminated a city wide unit to attack hot spots and take back areas of the city and then replaced it once the shit started hitting the fan with what?? a citywide unit called VRI= Violence reduction Initiative. any idiot could have figured out when the "tamping" began. Right after Rahm and McDope started covering their asses.

SCC,
My neighbors garage was burglarized a couple of weeks ago. He called 911 and was told to call 311 since his garage wasn't attached to his house. Frustrated that the police wouldn't respond, he decided not to call 311. That's a way to kill crime.

Click "firearm registration" again in the box on the left. Enter your name and hit "search". Bingo! Your name, guns, and SS# for all to see.

McCarthy said. "We might be in a position where we are leading the nation in crime reduction."

LMFAO at these a-holes. Yeah then again we "might" not either..

Right out of the Rahm deflection playbook. "we MIGHT be" is not "we are".

Don't look at the over 460 and counting bodies stacking up from the homicides since the first of the year. That's a metric that WE ARE leading the nation in not "might be".

We don't like THAT homicide metric because of the images people conjure up when it's mentioned, it's negative and scary. So we must conjure up a new positive altruistic metric so people will keep shopping!

Reminiscent of the Rahm propaganda on being a leader in job creation. Pay no attention to the Food Stamp caseloads that surpass the number of jobs being created.

Sure we may have created some jobs but the definition of what a job is has lost it's meaning.

A job by historical standards was something that you did 40 hours or more a week that raised your standard of living, provided financial security, health care and insurance benefits for you and your family, weekends and vacation time off. Having a job meant that you were self sufficient. Your job often lead to a lifetime career. Most people conjure up that image when they hear the word job

However, the word job today doesn't mean any of that. Yet they keep trying to promote the propaganda that it does.

Nor should we pay attention to the city being a leader in home foreclosures or the transparency talk that is anything but transparent. The legalization of the pension thefts or being the leader in debt, taxes, fines, and fees.

No-no-no, let's make up more arbitrary metrics whereas we can say we are a leader at something and deceive people into feeling good that we are number one and things are working.

I'm so sick of these political word games being played.

The major flaw in his statement is about a "Zero-sum game". Game theory(The Zero-sum game refered to)is the study of mathematical models of conflict and cooperation between intelligent rational decision-makers.

There is nothing rational, intelligent, or decision making about his tenure as Super, just as the same applies to criminals.

Or, as Mark Twain once said, "there are lies, damn lies, and statistics."

Garage burglary gets a police response if the offender may be present. Lets see-- the good, hard working, tax paying people who find themselves victimized once again would need to tell the 911 operator that their garage has been broken into and they don't know if the offender is still inside. Even if they have gone through and made an itemized list of what has been stolen, there is no way of knowing who the offender may be or where he is hiding. He could be someone very, very small or very, very thin lurking alongside their leaf rake. Just to ensure their safety a police officer should respond to search for the offender. "I don't know" goes a long way in the ghetto-- like one of them might have a gun, or I heard them mention a gun, so it's time we start not knowing if the offender is present of if those suspicious people lurking in that car out front are armed or some kind of trained assasin or maybe ninjas. My wife and neighbors have been tutored in the art of the 911 call. I DEMAND police service-- and I expect service better than that of the non-taxpayer(s).

Could you re stock the units again? You screwed them over last time, to do it again something would have to be different.
35th st was warned, you can't turn dogs into police but you can turn police into dogs. At first things were good but after you beat up the po's over and over they turned into dogs.
A new unit would have to be run by a legit boss, not some merit hack. The po's would have to respect who they are working for and they need to be treated like adults not compstat statistics.
Probably a better chance of winning the lottery so we will just stick to, there is a decrease in the increase.

Here's the deal with McPinocchio's blatant lies:

He doesn't have to live in this shithole city for nearly three decades like those of us that thought we might actually make a "career" out of CPD.

Even those that thought they'd do a "quick 20" to snag a pittance of a pension to supplement other retirement income will have been a prisoner to the city of Chicago an average of FIVE TIMES AS LONG as McDrunky.

You see, Garry has no real skin in the game here. None. Zero. He is here to collect a fat paycheck. And part of collecting (notice i didn't say "earning") that overinflated salary is to do and say what the boss tells you to do and say. Hence his unadulterated bullshit.

And then when he outlives his usefulness, Garry will be made to fall on the sword like all of his predecessors. If he's managed to not piss off the Tiny Dancer too much he may be allowed to leave under the guise of "family issues" or "medical necessity".

Bottom Line: Garry doesn't give a fuck about you, me, Rahm Emanuel, the city of Chicago or its citizens - he cares about Garry. And he's here for two things: a healthy wage and a resume bullet point.

We laughed heartily at all the goofs that stroked McEgo and sung his praises for that Oscar-worthy performance at NATO. You pawns were too starstruck to see that the chess players at the helm of all the mayhem were just moving you twice as fast and with less than adequate thought and preparation in their decisions.

Chicago’s Mayor Emanuel Gives America Some Unneeded Advice

On Friday, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel used the presidential election victory to give himself a nice, big, undeserved pat on the back. Emanuel, in a Washington Post op-ed, declared that America needs to be more like Chicago. And yes, he was serious.

So what if Chicago has $26 billion dollars in unfunded public pension liabilities? So what if Emanuel plans on spending $7 billion MORE in the next 3 years on “Building a New Chicago?” That doesn’t matter to Rahm. To him, that’s the way America should be doing it.

In his op-ed, Mayor Emanuel conveniently forgets to mention the high crime rate, high unemployment and high taxes that seem to be plaguing the city. The combination of all of these problems, along with the feeling that nothing is going to change seem to be very apparent when looking at the decrease in population Chicago has seen in the last decade. If you notice, a lot of the neighborhoods that have seen this exodus from Chicago are the lower income neighborhoods, the kind of neighborhoods that Rahm and his Democrat friends claim to be “helping” so much. I can’t blame it all on Rahm, but he didn’t help it and definitely didn’t do anything different. He just went on with the same policies that his predecessor, Richard Daley, tried and failed with.

So what exactly should Mayor Emanuel be proud of? What kind of example did Chicago set for America? The answers are nothing and none. Mayor Emanuel’s op-ed was meant to do three things. One, to annoy and confuse anyone with common sense and who understands that you can’t keep raising taxes and spending when people are fleeing the city, and you can’t expect people to be okay with massive crime rates and the most restrictive gun laws next to Washington D.C.

Second, to brag to his Democrat friends that Chicago is the epicenter of frivolously spending tax payer dollars. He wants everyone to know that Chicago is making changes and that spending 7 billion more dollars in the next 3 years is the only way it can be done. He wants to make a big statement and prove that his policies work. Unfortunately, the only thing he is going to show us is how to make a broke city more broke. Chicago is already in debt up to it’s eyeballs and Illinois is even in worse trouble. It’s only a matter of time until Chicago becomes Detroit.

Third, and most importantly to Rahm, He wrote the op-ed piece because he wanted to give himself a pat on the back, but he wanted to do it in front of the whole Washington Post audience. The sad thing is, Mayor Emanuel doesn’t realize that what he is doing to Chicago is actually killing it. More debt, crime, and taxes with a dwindling population is never a good thing, and not even Rahm, Obama or the Chicago Democratic machine can cover it up.

To be fair I believe it was the mayors idea to eliminate the citywide units for his 1000 officers back on the street bullshit. I don't think that was mcdrunkys idea.

11/27/2012 10:49:00 AM


mayor or McGoof... oops i'm sorry mcdrunkys , it's all the same bullshit.. think about it 1000 officers back on the street( all he did was shift personel around ) and led the public to believe that we were 1000 officers stronger.. well same shit here whether it was his or the racoons idea who gives a fuck ! we're no better than when they opened their mouths as a matter of fact we're worse off for some reason.... look at the # of homicides......

We could drastically reduce the homicide rate in Chicago by simply implementing either Concealed Carry and/or open carry of firearms. FBI statistics over the past 25 years have PROVEN that in cities and states where concealed carry is legal, the instances of shootings and homicides are drastically lower than places where gun ownership is discouraged, like here in Chicago.

Gun-toting criminals are cowards. They prey upon the weak, the defenseless, and the un-armed.

ARM the CITIZENS with guns, and watch the homicide rate in Chicago vaporize very quickly.

Citizens of Chicago, WAKE UP and demand that the City, the County, and the State implement legal carrying of guns in public. 49 states already have concealed carry laws, to reduce crime, leaving Illinois as the lone state that refuses to acknowledge the FBI proof that the legalization of carrying guns by the citizens drastically reduces crime.

McDrunk probably never has and certainly never will have to tell a family that there their loved ones have been murdered.
Probably never sat in a courtroom with the family of a murder victim and I bet never gave his personal cell number for e family to call when they just need someone to vent to.
He was never the real police, nor will he ever be.

OT: SCC can you please make people aware that our SS# are available for all to see, civilian employees as well as sworn personnel with access to Clear Applications. Sign in and click on Clear Applications. Next look in the box in the upper left corner marked "records management". Click on "firearms registration". Click "firearm registration" again in the box on the left. Enter your name and hit "search". Bingo! Your name, guns, and SS# for all to see. Thought the dept agreed to only use SS# for payroll purposes. WTF?

You must be special because firearms registration is not an option.

SCC,
My neighbors garage was burglarized a couple of weeks ago. He called 911 and was told to call 311 since his garage wasn't attached to his house. Frustrated that the police wouldn't respond, he decided not to call 311. That's a way to kill crime.

11/27/2012 12:34:00 AM

Vern heard something outside and discovered three individuals were burglarizing his storage shed. He called 9-1-1 and was told there were no cars available immediately but they would be dispatched when possible in a half-hour or so.

Vern hung up and redialed 9-1-1. When the dispatcher answered, he said, "I just called to tell you to disregard my previous call. I just got my gun and shot all three of them." In less than two minutes there were five police cars, two deputy sheriffs, and three state troopers in front of Vern's house.

The three burglars were apprehended and stunned by the police response. The senior police officer on the scene angrily turned to Vern and said, "I thought you said you shot them!"

Vern replied, "I thought there were no cars available."

_________________________________
As much as I agree 100% with citizens being armed and everyone having a right to own and carry a firearm I do not believe it will lower the homicide rate. Most(not all) shootings and homicides in Chicago are gang related.One gang kills another gang and retaliation occurs. Maybe an innocent child or old person gets killed in the crossfire but that would not be prevented if everyone carried a gun. Idiot gang members just shoot with no aim and whoever gets caught in between suffers. Once again agree with Constitutional rights to own and carry a gun and have petitioned for it and am also a member of the NRA. Arming yourself can protect you from being a victim but the homicide rate in this wild west gangbanging city will not drop.

We never went over the million mark. We just had higher RD's because Vice started at 750,000 and traffic crashes started at 900,00. Now they are just given out in ascending order with no differentiation.
