NEWSFLASH! South Side Isn't Safe

Here's a giant problem for Rahm - we're just surprised it didn't happen sooner.  And we call it "Rahm's problem" because he's running the show.  And what do you do when a portion of your voting base (north shore liberals) know that you're full of crap?
  • The Brooks College Prep baseball coach said Sunday he will never agree to a game with Payton College Prep again after a group of Payton parents refused to send their kids to the far South Side school for a night non-conference game.

    As many as eight Payton parents were worried about the Roseland neighborhood around Brooks when they refused to let the teens play the 7 p.m. game at Brooks, located at 250 E. 111 St., school officials say.

    Both schools are elite Chicago Public Schools college preps that accept students based on test scores.

Of course, that tired old canard came out almost immediately:
  • “The only thing I’d say to parents is, `What are you teaching your kids when you sit down to the dinner table and Johnny says `Why can’t we play at Brooks?’‘’
Gee Coach, how about the fact that the neighborhood is pretty much a war zone? That 85% or more shootings/killings occur on the west and south sides? That pretty much every basketball game is a set of armed camps and patrolled by dozens, sometimes as many as 100 off-duty Chicago cops and Cook County Deputies, not to mention the on-duty cars assigned? And the fact that school buses regularly seem to intercept bullets in that geography?

Maybe the parents are teaching their kids that them being alive and whole is more important than a game. And that parents who care enough about their children aren't going to send them into danger. We recall reading not too many weeks ago about parents on the west/south sides complaining about school closings and saying how dangerous it was going to be for their children to cross gang boundaries. Now that problem has been all cleared up? We don't think so - and Rahm is paying us time-and-one-half later this week because even he doesn't believe it.

You can't have it both ways. Either your neighborhood is a crime infested shithole that Rahm is spending about a million dollars per week on to stop the people there from killing each other or everything is just fine and dandy. If it's crime infested shithole (which we know it is, having spent many years down there), then it ought to be shunned by all decent people until such time as it's safe. If it isn't, then we must be living in a fantasy world.

Two requests - (1) a total of all shootings within a one-mile and five-mile radius of Brooks, and (2) where does Coach Street lay his head at night?  If it isn't Roseland, then he really has no basis for complaining.

UPDATE: The backtracking begins in earnest. Rahm must have been making calls all afternoon for people to come up with excuses.

"Crime is everywhere. You have just as much crime up north. It’s just different kinds of crime.’’

This is my favorite quote of the article. As if you could compare the crime level in Roseland to the Gold Coast. If this mother can't tell the difference, she is living in denial. How many gangs claim territory on the Gold Coast?

But-but they tolds us that there will be safe passage when they close our schools -- why didn't they just provide us with safe passage to this ball game too?

I mean we still have all the horses and the jersey barriers and stuff right?

And NFL can errect an entire stage for half-time at the Superbowl with lights, sound and power within minutes and here everyone knew in advance about the game days in advance.. since what...Wed?

We get it Rahm. It's NOT about "the children" it's about the NATO dignitaries and other elite members on the campaign dinner donation lists. These are just a bunch of loser kids in the hood that will never amount to anything...not like that Haydia (spelling?) kid...

From the article.

CPS spokeswoman Kelley Quinn said Sunday evening that several factors led to the forfeiture, including that Payton athletes were only made aware of the game Wednesday. Other conflicts included no bus transportation to Brooks, Advanced Placement tests and players who were benched for missing practice for college visits and practice AP tests, Quinn said.
************************
OK it the CPS, so maybe I am out of touch, but:

1) When does a school not provide transportation to a game?

2) Players at an elite HS are benched for taking college visits and practice AP exams? Isn't that the whole point of Payton, to get kids into elite colleges?

I know kids at less than elite HS's that take college visits in season, never a penalty. Either a lie or coach needs to get his priorities straight.

I also know kids who have to miss practice/games due to school work, a rare occasion, but it happens. I would think it happens a bit more frequently at Payton.

3)Kids could not make game due to AP exams. Another lie or I am missing something. My kid's HS AP exams start May 6. I looked at the Payton calendar - AP Exams May 6 - May 17, so another lie.

My daughter goes to Payton. The heart of this issue was no bus transportation and the parents didn't want to be driving through that area at 11pm. Can you blame them? (Sorry. I couldn't fit them all in my SUV.)

BTW, does the Devine name ring a bell? His dad's name is Richard/Dick. Tim Devine (whonis a great principal) is not going down for this. Say bye bye to the coach.

WHOOOOOOO!

You damn straight Rahm was on the phones SCC!

We hope one part of Rahm's voter base goes to war against the other...

Then everybody will be too busy to give The Police any additional grief.

Rahm already has his minions blowing smoke and bullshit all over the comments section of the scum-times...

The next move will be an all-out push to vilify the Payton parents as racist.

That might come from Moperah or Doperah...

In the eyes of these parents, (bravo to them for not going for the P.C. pandering bullshit) racism has absolutely dick-all to do with their concerns for their children's safety.

These people may be soft, weak and clueless for the most part, especially about how truly dangerous this city is and how Rahm and Shortshanks have intentionally destroyed CPD to the tune of 4000+ Officers while lying to these BIG PROPERTY TAX PAYERS about the state of public safety.

These people should be (more) up in arms!

Sheeeit...

It ain't just the South Side... It's all over!

Heh... Rahm is looking a little unraveled lately.

His push to reboot CPS into majority charters to bust out CTU has run into trouble because of UNO financial hanky-panky.

His push to slow Chicago to a crawl with redlight and speed cameras is in trouble because of Redflex financial hanky-panky.

Now THIS?

Rahm can't get the legislature or the courts to carve out a Chicago exemption to the upcoming joyous day of regular citizens being able to defend themselves from the hordes from the West and South sides overrunning everywhere else because they're over-Policed?

Flaming Tutu ought to be spinning to the point of self combustion if not letting out a primal shriek and clawing off the borrowed human skin he's in...

Buying some "Chicago Isn't Safe" billboards will hopefully drive Rahm screaming out of that false skin and reveal himself.

Sit back and watch the fun!

How is it racist that you don't want your kid travelling thru a few shit neighborhoods to get to a shit neighborhood to play a baseball game, on a Saturday night, no less? I liked the parent that said "they got crime up north too, it's just different crime.". Yeah, no shit honey... I didn't see the Payton kids beat a fellow student to death with a 2x4. I haven't noticed too many shootings where honor students likes Hadiya Pendleton get killed up at Von Stuben. No shootings at the Taft/Lane Tech basketball game this past winter. Send my kid to Roseland on a Saturday night? No fucking way. Not racist. Just common sense. I'd like to see the racial makeup of the Payton team. It's not just a "white" school. They have a pretty diverse student body there. How many Black and/or Hispanic players' parents didn't want them going ??
SCC, you said it. Your neighborhood is either safe, or it's not. They can't have it both ways.

This story says it all. It paints the perfect picture of Chicago today. Parents are rightfully concerned about the safety of their children traveling to a south side school at night and the south side school's coach tries to turn it into a race issue with his comment about how they should watch the Robinson movie and learn something. Perhaps he should watch the news an learn something about the savagery of those thugs in his neighborhood. But the brainwashing of the liberal race baiters has taken hold of his brain.

I am no liberal and after 41 years as a CPS teacher i am well aware of what happens at sporting events.But Brooks is no ordinary school.
It started out as Pullman Tech
built by George Pullman to educate the kids of his workers.It is set in a 40 acre park.After Pullman it became Mendel a catholic HS.
The baseball field is a result of the alderman who is a baseball zealot, and Brooks first base coach. It looks better than Wrigley field.I would call the campus safer than Gatley Field where Mt Carmel plays it's home games.Unless Saturday night is no longer date night the timing was piss poor.

My daughter played softball and was at an away game at Bogan. There was a knifing incident there. Then at another away game at Morgan Park ( they play at a nearby park) there was a shooting. When I brought my safety concerns to the Athletic Director his response was " people get shot everyday. It is no big deal." No other safelty measures were in place for future games. At least this coach and parents have good sense. The parents at Brookes are insane to think the neighborhood is anything but a warzone.

The Ponce' brothers host a show on WLS over the weekend.
If you're not familiar with this liberal family, they wrote the book on nepotism and clout.
Father Phil has been a show 'host' on Ch. 11 for years and is it a coinkydink that both his sons are news 'readers' on Chicago's other news stations? I think not, but I digress.
Sunday, father and son were hosting on WLS talking about the Payton school 'no show, game forfeiture.'
They interviewed a baseball coach from Brooks who played the race card to no end. He called Payton parents 'ignorant and racist.'
He constantly referred to the quality and beauty of the Brooks baseball field 'facility.' When finally given a softball (no pun) inquiry about the violence in the area, he again touted the beauty of their baseball facility. He denied any evidence to violence in the area as a possible motive, indicating that a member of Brooks baseball team actually had the talent to(allegedly)check the crime stats for the area on a computer. He stated this kid determined there was "no violent crime in a three block area around the facility."
The Pussay'(sic) family hosts went along with that statement never challenging him further (i.e. time frame, murders, gang violence, indiscriminate shooting at school buses, carjackings ad nauseum etc.)four to forty blocks surrounding the school.
Not one mention of the race breakdown of the Payton kids baseball team, just that they're all ignorant and racist.
I only wish that they could have asked the Brooks coach, parents and the radio hosts to address the real issue listed here on this particular SCC post, citing Rahm spending a million a week to stop the killing in the surrounding area.
But then again... Don't look there, look here, see what a nice baseball field we have at Brooks? It's not the 'grass' that we're concerned with, it's the 'gangs' YOU 'ignorant racist.'

these parents were absolutely right to make this call. these parents were clearly aware of the real southside beast and not buying into the propaganda that rahmie and garr are spitting out. the southside is dangerous because it is full of scumbags that don't ever get punished for their crimes. for example, there were a few young black men that were found in my backyard when me and my family were gone. these young scholars all had gloves on probably getting ready to burglarize my home. i of course had them arrested and attended the court date at 1100 s. hamilton. i found out about their rap sheets/background and they were incredibly horrible with multiple felonies for each of them and one of them was 17 yoa and he was arrested over 20 times already and more than half being felonies. he had been arrested for guns, burglaries, robberies and fighting. do you think these scumbags are being held accountable for their actions?!

Out of touch Gold Coast callers this afternoon chime in on the subject on WGN radio.. why didn't the parents just suck it up, get involved and car pool to the game... or to that effect.

As if traveling though the bad lands in a caravan will protect the unarmed agaisnt the armed groups of thugs.

Some people have this mindset that if they don't bother anyone that no-one is going to bother them. Just mind your own business and you'll be okay.

THAT ISN'T HOW IT WORKS TODAY!!!

You don't have to flash your Iphone. You don't have to be robbed for your cash. You can get shot because someone is doing thier gang initiation challenge.

Gold coast jackazzes looking at the Red Eye Homicide map and the WGN host expressing his opinion. Oh look the homicides are way over on 95th street and students are not going to driving over there, they will come down the highway instead so it's all cool!

Homicides he's looking at. So if you just get shot in the head and become a vegtable it's okay...after all none of these people on the talk radio are the ones going down there...but they want to run everyone elses life.

NO-NO-NO...naw man, you don't need a conceal carry permit to drive thru that hood. No, not if your the mayor with his security entourage or perhaps Ald. Burke and his security team that's on a Tokyo Rose made for TV propaganda film mission with the streets sealed off.

Take comfort in knowing that if your kid gets shot and crippled that maybe it will all get caught on a city crime camera and that the city might bring the offender to justice AFTER THE FACT. It won't make you family members whole again but you should just be satisfied with that according to the mayor and police superintendent.

From the Tribune article:

"There were other, less salacious, causes for the game's cancellation," Principal Tim Devine wrote in an email to the Walter Payton College Preparatory High School community. "The reasons for the cancellation stem from leadership issues within the baseball program."

The baseball program's "leadership" gets to be the fallguy for this, because the principal wants to be politically correct. Remember your Vaseline, Coach Wittleder, because the principal ain't going to be providing it.

As for your initial question, "And what do you do when a portion of your voting base (north shore liberals) know that you're full of crap?," the Lakefront libs have given up on the South Side, just like the rest of us.

Has everyone forgotten how a public high school football game at Gately Stadium went up for grabs this past fall with a huge fight in the stands and left one student stabbed and multiple calls of "man with a gun" & "shots fired" in the stands. Again, there was a heavy police presence at this game.

Let's see....
Chicago State - 2 miles north of Brooks.
Gately Stadium - 1 mile north of Brooks.

Do you really think there would be a heavy police presence at this baseball game. I highly doubt it.

What were they thinking scheduling this game for 7;00 on a Saturday night. It should have been scheduled for 10:00 on Saturday morning. Then, I'm sure the Payton players and parents would have showed up.

How can anyone blame these parents.

The ball field/campus may be lovely and "safe."
GETTING there is a totally different story.
No way would I want to drive my kid (if I had one) to that area for a game. Geez.

Only in this town of left wing loons would a parent be put on the defensive for looking out for their child's best interest/safety. A meaningless baseball game or sparing the feelings of libtards should never be put ahead of protecting your child from the beast. If the savages and libtards don't like it then maybe they should take responsibility for what they've created and fix it.

It blows my mind that the Chicagoland political establishment even bothers trying to police these South Side warzones given that the occupants refuse to cooperate even when they're the victims. But I guess without South Side the elites couldn't guarantee the outcome in the next "election".

there is a limit, believe it or not, to the number of actually dead voters available to cast straight democratic votes.

thus, the need to maintain a sufficient number of half dead, brain dead, soon to be dead and might as well be dead voters in the que.

attrition is the democrats worst enemy.

thus, support of the breeding shall continue.


which is all that keeps me from the unemployment line.

The 'different kinds of crime up North' are basically the results of these Roseland/Englewood creatures showing up and causing their brand of trouble.

How about the mayor's wife drive their UofC educated tykes to Roseland after dark and report back about how nice it is out there?

Simple solution from the days of Mendel CHS:

Put the "TURK" up on the roof with binocs...

let "The Skull" administer the discipline.

you had to be there.

"Crime is everywhere. You have just as much crime up north. It’s just different kinds of crime.’’

This is my favorite quote of the article. As if you could compare the crime level in Roseland to the Gold Coast. If this mother can't tell the difference, she is living in denial. How many gangs claim territory on the Gold Coast?

I believe the Skokie Vicelords lay claim to the entire Gold Coast area. Same with Jewelers Row.

Recognize.

Thanks. I just blew coffee over my screen. Skokie Vicelords. And Rahm is their leader!

Well I worked vri on Saturday and plenty of officers were sent to 5. The 5th district is a warzone. There's no way to sugarcoat it. These parents made the right decision. If more parents would actually parent maybe we would've have the problems we have.
