Another Camera Report

We heard a blurb on the radio yesterday, something about another "investigative report," possibly by Channel 2, regarding police cameras and how they are breaking down, not being repaired, and possibly how they are recording crime, but no one is watching.

Any of this sound familiar to anyone? Because we're pretty sure we wrote about it more than a few times and generated hundreds of comments regarding this exact issue.

Is this breaking in conjunction with the "48 Hours" report this weekend? We can't seem to find the teaser trailer.

Speaking of camera's....remember when Michigan Ave was shut down twice a couple of weeks ago for "suspicious packages"? Did Rahm's camera's record the perp who taped these things to the posts? Never heard much nore about that did we.

It seems like anytime the TV news can't dig up its own story, they get an idea from this blog. I think they should pay you for this service.

You know what else was on the radio, they were talking about those two coppers that were on video with a shithead, dropping him off in LKing territory 2 years ago. They got fired the other day, they're making an example of them. Coppers in court defended themselves saying they thought that's where he lived. GMac recommended their termination.
Always a camera somewhere, except the ones that are supposed to work in our favor. They must all be made in china at the rate they're breaking.

The only folks really happy and satified with all of these bogus cameras are the same connected contractors who sold them to the city. Crinimals are not afraid of cameras. They would be cautious if they see a real cop nearby.

What good are all of these cameras when there is nobody left in this town just like Detroit?

If there's an event number for someone watching the camera, then someone must have been watching the cameras, right?

Look how great the cameras work:

CHICAGO (CBS) – An elderly woman was confronted on the Magnificent Mile by a mob of young men on Wednesday, who proceeded to take $100,000 worth of jewelry she was wearing.

A Chicago police source said the 69-year-old woman from Homewood Flossmoor was accosted by 10 to 12 African American men while walking in the 700 block of North Michigan around noon in front of Saks Fifth Avenue.

They threatened to beat her if she didn’t give them her purse and jewelry.

She took off her jewelry, valued at around $100,000, and handed it to them.

According to police, the woman had a leaf-shaped pin she was wearing that was encrusted with diamonds and surrounded by black onyx. That alone was valued at $50,000.

The men involved were between 18 and 19 years-old. They were wearing baggy pants and dreads. They ran northbound on Rush towards Chicago Avenue to escape.

There was also a second incident at 1 p.m., in front of 800 N. Michigan, involving three female African-Americans and one male African-American who stole an iPhone from someone. Those suspects were taken into custody.

Charges had not yet been filed.

Once installed, these cameras don't produce city revenue therefore nobody cares about keeping them operational. Notice the red light cameras are never broken down for long.

Each Area is required to have a full time PO "watching" the cameras each shift. Are you saying that this isn't occurring? :-)

Will the last person in Chicago please turn off the camera as you leave?
