Media Doesn't Buy "Lower" Numbers

Rahm and McCarthy were running around all day touting the supposed "reduction" in crime.  But amazingly, someone at the papers pointed out exactly what we've been telling everyone for over six months now:
  • (Sun Times) - According to the police department, there were 184 murders this year through the end of June, compared with 260 in 2012 and 188 in 2011.

    Last year, murders spiked during a historically warm spring — accounting for most of the 2012 increase in killings compared with 2011.

  • (Tribune) - Six months after Chicago ended a bloody 2012 with more than 500 slayings, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy on Monday delivered some encouraging news about the city’s homicide number: it’s at its lowest total in nearly half a century, he said.

    “To date, we’ve had fewer shootings than we had in recent years, and fewer murders than in any year since 1965,” McCarthy said during a news conference at a West Side police station.

    That murder number, 184, is the lowest total Chicago police has reported to the FBI for the first half of a year since reporting 180 in 1965, according to official Police Department statistics.

    But internal department data obtained by the Tribune shows an identical number of people were slain in Chicago during the first six months of each 2013 and 2011 -- 188.

    The difference between the figures is that Chicago police’s official tally to the FBI did not include four killings -- at least three of which took place within city limits on expressways patrolled by the state police. The comparable figure for the first half of 2011 could not be learned.
The Sun Times finally realized that there have been other years where crime was tracked besides 2012 and amazingly, 2013 is right on track with 2011.

The Tribune goes a step further, pointing out that 2013 and 2011 have the exact same total AND that the City is fudging the numbers slightly by not counting the three killings that took place on expressways within the corporate boundaries of Chicago, but which are investigated by Illinois State Police.

Yeah but what about public urination. That's what CPD is supposed to be concentrating on. Is public urination up or is it down?

An awful lot of people were pissing in the street at that parade McCarthy was at the other day. However the media only showed what great fun people were having.

Seemed like more bullshit going down in Wrigleyville than at the Blackhawks party and the NATO party combined.

19 district commander having fights breaking out IN THE STATION. Calling for all neighboring TAC and incident teams and at least five districts respond to the calls. Over 60 batteries we're hearing not counting people passed out and/or beaten in alleys and parking lots. Ya know, nothing but all that "quality of life" broken windows bullshit that is supposed to be targeted.

The bar owners in the entertainment district are not happy campers having to be shut down at 2am due to the fear of riots and rightly so.

Yeah, ha, everything is under control. sure it is.

If you Coppers would just sit down, shut up and stop making noise about how we actively engage in fuckery with numbers, the newsies wouldn't have left the fucking reservation and turned on us!

Next thing you know, they'll start believing you Coppers about being down multiple thousands in manpower in spite of our best efforts to fuck with EVERY official source of CPD manpower to keep the true numbers hidden from prying eyes.

Today I attended the Memorial service for P.O. Brian Strouse. A handful of citizens and Officers from surrounding districts were there. The MC (didn't get the name) told the story of Brian, and stated it had been 12 Years since his death. He then introduces Mcstupid who stands up and proceeds to say he " didn't know Brian in life but he feels he knows him well" and then proceeds to say that "13 years is a long time". Stupid and insulting... but he wasn't done. No, Mcstupid then talked about Brians service in the Military and how Brian then became a Chicago Police Officer. Mcstupid then says " Just like the men standing here today who served and then those men became Chicago Police Officers, and serve their communities." I'm not a feminist, I love my Brothers in Blue. My question to you Mcstupid is this: Did you not see the Female Chicago Police Officers standing in formation? Some who have served in the Military, and all who serve their communities. You must think that because we don't have balls that we don't count.....Well Mcstupid We do have balls and they are inverted, we just call them ovaries!!!!!! Asshat

McCarthy and Rahm are not only liars but thieves for stealing taxpayer resources to give to the ghetto. That has not stopped the violence one bit.

Also they must have failed elementary math.

1965 Chicago population- 3,500,000 w 180 murders

2013 Chicago population- 2,700,000 w 184 murders

Same murder rate as 1965?? Not even close. Again more lies and spin!!.

On his last day in office, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa sneaked in a final chance to tout what has become his go-to success story: crime declines. With the year almost half over, police statistics through last week showed across-the-board drops in all categories of serious crime compared to the same time period last year. The 128 homicides, for example, represent a 13.5% decline and put the city on pace to finish the year with a historic low of about 260 killings.

Until the media and the left acknowledge the fact that the great majority of these murders occur in a subculture(primarily black) that values human life as much as they do a good book, all of this preaching and hand-wringing is just pissing in the wind.

McCarthy has told all Area Detective Commanders to separate any murders caused by rioting. The CHRIS system is being updated to include a "Riot" motive. The Dicks will then assign a new AA records division number to these homicides to separate them from the standard HW homicides.

The fear is that any homicides resulting from a not guilty verdict in the Zimmerman trial will push the city's homicide numbers above 2012 homicides. McCarthy thinks this will unfairly impact his police policies/strategies and wants to group homicides caused by rioting away from the regular violent crime stats.

The Area District Commanders are responsible for insuring that all homicides are properly classified.

Seems like all they focus on are murder rates. If you're an active/retired/friend of gangbangers maybe that would be relevant, but for people visiting and living in the nicer areas, they should be looking at the robbery/assault/battery incidents. Those are the events that show how bad the criminal element is here, especially to outsiders. There are also dozens of incidents that don't get reported because people know that it is a waste of time; they cut their losses and move on because a low priority crime like theft or even a purse snatching is not worth the effort and time when there is little to no chance of the offender/s being caught.

McCarthy is not the only one to blame. It began with Richie Daley and Jody Weis.

McCarthy was put there by Rahm to run the Department on the cheap, to eliminate the need for promotions and higher pension liabilities. The public and the cops be damned as long as Rahm could control the news.

But the hell, only 23% of cops vote so who is to blame.

Listen Up Number Crunching Bull S--- Artists of the C.P.D.,


Garry and Rahm,

If you compare Murders from 1965 to today, you ALSO have to compare the population of 1965 Chicago to today.

The Difference in the Chicago Population from 1965 to 2012 is roughly 800,000 LESS citizens now, or a 22% to 23% drop.

So if the number of Murders is about the same, we actually had a 22% to 23% INCREASE IN MURDERS when factoring in the number of citizens.

Make sense?

Now, factor into those numbers the advances in life saving Emergency Technology that were not available in 1965 that would have saved many of those victims as routinely as they are saved today.

Now your C.P.D. statisticians can stop patting each other on the back. You failed to make your case.

Rahm and Garry only looked good for a couple News Cycles.

We are doing WORSE than years past.

NOT better.

If all those people you mentioned weren't notified, it isn't fair to complain they weren't there.

I will buy lunch to anyone in 010 who can get 1070 on 2nd watch and 1093 on 3rd watch, well what the hell, everyone in 010 to just shut the fuck up. Quit tying up the air with long drawn out BS. We use codes for a reason. God forbid something happens in 010, then everyone there has to talk on the radio about it, and how it makes them feeeeelllllll. Please just shut the fuck up. It is too busy of a zone to constantly be talking nonsense. Look up the word logorrhea, fits 010 perfectly.

How 'bout it? Are they still doing that? You just took me back aways. I worked all three watches in 011 years back, and the one thing you noticed about zone 10 is that though both districts are busy, there's a lot of long winded talkers and storytelling going on over the radio south of Roosevelt.

On midnights, the sergeants and p.o's went on and on about nothing instead of a code, on days, they chased a lot of dogs on foot and seemed to shoot dogs every couple of months, and the dogs wouldn't just double over and die, they would lose the dog after chasing it and shooting it, so the radio would be tied up with play-by-play of last known sightings of the shot dog until some citizen would call about a dead dog in their gangway.

Happened several times a year, I swear. You'd hear some copper on air shouting, "watch out for crossfire!" and I'd be sitting somewhere listening and thinking, "shit, how many people are shooting at this dumb, poor dog?"

OT: attended the memorial for officer Rick Francis last night. Good turn out for 0130 good response from outside units, thank you all for showing.

Glaring people who did not show, I'll name them here McCarthy, volgarus, Ryan, Kenny... No one there higher than a Lieutenant. Even Retired Captain McGovern showed, and showed what a class act he is. As to the command staff from 019, shameful not one of the front office people showed as a proxy even... Shameful you should all be embarrassed to show your face to the troops. And this is coming from someone who has defended all those same people in the past. We show for our brothers and sisters taken from us... No excuse

Same was true for the Memorial Service for Brian
Strauss, poor showing by the current bosses from 012, only Capt. Pantecore and Tact Lt. in attendance.
Our three former Capts were present (Capt. Hoot, Capt. Gibson and retired Capt Carroll) - this district hasn't had any real leadership since we lost those 3 Captains.

Hearing about another merger of districts to be announced this year, put into effect next year.

Closing down 024 station, merging with 020 but set to continue operations as two separate districts as they gradually phase out and transition to one desk, one command, one front office etc.

The lot across from twenty to the North has been purchased along Lincoln. The city's acquisitions sent the closing documents to Planning to see if the lot can be used as is, or if there was any need for more than just fresh blacktop, paint for spaces, and the usual black fence.
The interior changes being discussed show 020's roll call room converted to additional locker space and the community room on first floor doubling as new roll call room like they do in some of the other new stations for special functions roll calls... I'm not familiar with 020's layout, so some of you assigned to 020 can chime in and say if that sounds possible.

Someone at HQ said no need to be hush hush since this was already announced a while back, is that true?

They're also planning to implement some transition protocol that was written from "learning what worked, and what didn't work" from the 012/013, 019/023, and 021/002 mergers.

Supposedly the goal is under 20 districts, with 3 deployment sections for special details, events, or emergencies as needed.

024's station has already been claimed as a combined city service ward office for bill payment, service requests, and a possible new ordinance violation hearing administrator site, like 400 w. Superior.

OT-- a couple of weeks ago, someone called it and said Mrs. Ceasefire wouldn't follow through with the domestic battery charges against ol Tio. Today the Trib is reporting that the charges were dropped because the victim doesn't wish to pursue. The couple is in counseling. Isn't that nice?

So she should be charged with filing False Police Reports and also fined for the costs of police, states attorneys, corrections and judges who wasted hundred of man-hours on her "oops, changed my mind" b.s.

please, Ryan is a total jagoff. I think we all know that. He can't possibly act as tho he cares about anyone but himself and his 3 blue shirt suckholes, oh wait, make olive oyl #4.
Kenny well, ball-less at best. If he had a pair he would have put the afore-mentioned xo in his place and stopped his reign of terror. Eli appears to be cut out of the same cloth.
Forget about McDickwad.
Thanks to everyone else who was there.

A false 911 call is a felony. Refusing to sign complaints is aggravating but it's not against the law. Take the court time and relax.

Can this city do anything right? My neighbor went to a concert over the weekend at the much hyped new and improved state of the art northerly island. She related that they wacked her $40 to park $12 for Luke warm tap beer and the lawn seating was nearly all mud. Bring the whole family down! This city sucks!

Yea and thats going to happen. She will reach in her pocket and pay all this.
If you going to suggest something, at least make it be feasible.
What other fantasies do you have?

I wonder how many murders are still being investigated as "death investigations" because the victim could not be identified or suspects could not be identified?
