Chicago a Target?

Evidently, there's some specific intelligence out there hinting that, "Yes, Chicago is a target."
  • Over the past six years, Chicago has become a top potential target for international terrorists, a top security expert said Friday, making the posting of a veiled threat by Islamic radicals on Twitter a higher cause for concern.

    “Many terror organizations refer to Chicago as Obama Town,” said [...] security expert Ross Rice, a former FBI agent in Chicago. Under President Obama, the U.S. took out Osama bin Laden, and used repeated drone strikes to weaken terror networks.

    In the meantime, the U.S. government on Friday issued a security bulletin to all U.S. law enforcement in light of the overall threat posed by Islamic State, commonly known as ISIS or ISIL.
Granted, this is all on twitter, a notoriously over-hyped and dramatic form of social media for short-attention span types. But it never hurts to be reminded that there are thousands of people out there willing to do you and us harm, simply because of where we live. Be cautious and careful and aware - it hurts less than the alternative.

I just sent Isis a tweet to remind their organization that Chicago's financial district is located at Pulaski and Madison, and that is where they will find the leaders of the city.

Attorney general Eric Holder and Missouri Democratic leaders need to apologize to the law-enforcement community for impugning officers’ motives in light of the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., according to one prominent county sheriff.

Milwaukee County sheriff David Clarke, who gained notoriety last year for encouraging gun ownership within his Wisconsin community, said Holder, Governor Jay Nixon, and Senator Claire McCaskill made the situation in Ferguson worse with their “irresponsible, inflammatory” comments about the city’s police force and its supposed problem with race relations. Clarke argued on Fox News on Friday that the trio was “insinuating that our law-enforcement officers across the United States engage in some nefarious or systematic and cultural attempts to violate people’s civil rights.”

On Thursday, a music video titled “F*** tha Police" called for revenge for the fatal police shooting of Ezell Ford in South Los Angeles on August 11. The video has prompted the LAPD’s union to issue a warning to officers to be on “heightened alert and pay extra attention to your tactics and surroundings.”
Breitbart News has received a copy of the safety alert letter and the video from the Los Angeles Police Department Protective league.

More money raised for [nearly killed] Ferguson officer than slain teen [300-pound assailant]

By Michael Pearson, CNN
updated 8:17 PM EDT, Fri August 22, 2014

"(CNN) -- On the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, support for slain teenager Michael Brown has been overwhelming. On the Internet fundraising site GoFundMe, however, Officer Darren Wilson gets more of the backing.

"The fundraising effort for Wilson, which began Sunday, had raised more than $235,000 from 5,900 donors as of Friday afternoon. That compares with $165,000 for Brown's family that has flowed in over eight days from roughly the same number of contributors into a page on the same site."

Oh, McNaughton. You micromanaging, moral crushing idiot. I wonder why nobody with any brains and over 5 years experience wanted to come to your unit? Your reputation for being a crappy boss who cares more about numbers than your men is well known now. In 008 you promised officers time due for a fellow officers wedding, then days before reneged and denied time due and didn't even have the balls to say you made the decisions...you blamed someone else. Our watches never do anything together and camaraderie has not been what it should be for over 10 years now. So we throw together a watch activity and get the OK from 2 Lieutenants and our own (much better than you) Commander and are told everyone will be granted the day off that wants to go. Now I am hearing because of YOU, McNaughton, that people are getting denied. I heard 50 people were planning on going and already paid $50. You really are such a stroke. Way to piss a bunch of officers off. Glad you are gone from 008. Hope your 3 year wonders have never had a good boss so they don't realize how shitty you really are.

The Jihadists weapons are not just airplanes or truck bombs but also hordes of people who come in as settlers, not immigrants.

There is a difference between "settlers" and "immigrants" and Europe has been finding that out. The native populations of countries such as France, Germany, Belgium and Italy are finding themselves overwhelmed by hordes of new Muslims settlers who set up enclaves to enforce their way of life on them and erase the national identity of the host country.

When any country joined the European Union they had to agree to the open border immigrant policy which has allowed the massive numbers of people from Islamic countries to come in and soak up their social benefits.

The Jihadists point to the new world and see what the Europeans did to the native populations of the Americas and believe they came accomplish the same thing. Come in, bring and plant their culture, over populate, destroy the native culture and establish an Islamic state. It may take hundreds of years and cost hundreds of thousands of lives but it is all for their twisted idea of God.

Obam's new anti-gun-tactic is to go after law enforcement.
The police aren't militarized. If you want to see militarized go back to the days when police used Thompsons on fully automatic, or B-A-Rs that were fully automatic.

Then there were the photos showing police with crew served machine guns back in the early twentieth century.

Obama is realizing that the true terrorists are people that would look like his son, if he had one, and he's trying to leave the playing field.

The nation’s top prosecutor, Attorney General Eric Holder has experience as a senior partner of the powerful D.C. law firm of Covington & Burling which represented 17 Yemenis held at the terrorist detention Camp Gitmo. How sweet. One of the class of Yemeni Gitmo detainees was described as “gentle, thoughtful young men” was released in 2005—only to blow himself up (gently and thoughtfully, of course) in a truck bombing in Mosul, Iraq, in 2008, killing 13 soldiers from the 2nd Iraqi Army division and seriously wounding 42 others.

One of Holder’s infamous roles in issuing clemency to convicted bank robbers and bombers of the Puerto Rican terrorist group, FALN (Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional), received the most heat. The FALN had waged a bloody bombing campaign that maimed dozens of New York City police officers and resulted in the deaths or injuries of scores of other victims.

SCC sorry for the long post but it's the truth.

Compare CPD SWAT to other major cities. You think this city is prepared? Terrorism, kidnappings, maritime activities, active shooter and hostage rescue? We are not ready. No equipment, no vehicles, no training. Sad to say, but it's true. Good men and women in blue will die along with many of the citizens living in Chicago. We have not been given a fighting chance. The merit promotions of Exempts, have been promoted above their abilities and have robbed us of training and equipment, not just for SWAT but for all police officers in Chicago. U.S.Homeland Security has given the City of Chicago hundreds of millions of dollars to prepare and train all it's police officers for terrorist attacks. The city has taken the money and used it for overtime initiatives that have produced little results in fighting crime, and zero preparedness for terrorism. I urge the media to see how many millions have been given to Chicago?

The citizens of Chicago deserve the truth and deserve better. This is our tax dollars that are being misused. We will fight for what we believe in. Media, I urge you to begin to ask the proper questions. Where has all the federal grant money gone to prepare the city for Hostage, Barricaded, Terrorist (HBT) incidents? Should SWAT assets be utilized to knock on gang banger's doors or should we be training on perishable skills and supporting the patrol division through the execution of high risk search warrants, high threat arrest operations with the narcotics and detective's division. Zero training with the Joint Terrorist Task Force. McCarthy has surrounded himself with Yes Men. He is a joke and so are his policies. For 100 million dollars that have been spent on VRI what exactly was accomplished? How many criminals were placed in jail or are serving time?

Neglect, waste and fraud have been the reason why this city is not prepared. Any media that is monitoring this site we urge you to look into how this city is not prepared for major critical incidents. The LSD incident is proof on how one criminal shut down a major thoroughfare for 10 hours. Compare us to other major cities. Compare us to the Illinois State Police or even the Suburban Mutual Aid SWAT Teams. (Keep in mind that over 100 million dollars has been spent on VRI, but there is no money to fund SWAT)

Part 2
Hardly any squad cars for SWAT. Only 20 percent of the team have the worst cars that should've been taken out of service many miles ago. Compare our response time to that of other cities. Why is there no formal call out system for SWAT? Look at the squad cars that Exempts use and ask to see the SWAT take home vehicles. For the SWAT members that are lucky to have a junker, they secure the trunk with a chain and lock. Police Officers are forced to respond to HBT jobs in their own personal family vehicles. SWAT officers have had their own personal vehicles broken into and have had thousands of dollars in equipment stolen. (Keep in mind that 100 million dollars has been spent on VRI, no money for SWAT)

Compare our SWAT capabilities to NYPD, LAPD, ISP or other major city SWAT teams? Look at the equipment. No proper training centers or ranges. Can CPD SWAT effectively respond to a Terrorist Incident on any of the waterways in the city. The answer is No. Has CPD SWAT trained with any helicopters for anti-terrorist operations and hostage rescue on high rises or for assaulting unto ships. No. We have zero capabilities and equipment to react on any water including a bath tub. In the last 10 years we have had a total of ten days of training on the water. Just imagine what could happen. (Keep in mind that 100 million dollars has been spent on VRI, no money for SWAT)

Look at the armored vehicles that CPD has compared to other major SWAT teams. One armored vehicle (Bearcat) is currently working which is ten years old and is rusting. The second armored vehicle (MRAP), the military gave it to us for free and it has spent more time in the shop then being used. (Keep in mind that 100 million dollars has been spent on VRI, no money for SWAT)

Bottom line, the Exempts, Superintendent, past Mayor and current Mayor could care less about the Chicago Police Department or it's citizens. They are clueless and negligent for how they have failed to prepare this city. Their inflated salaries and pensions are not deserving for they have failed the rank and file. FOP you bunch of ass wipes. Where's the vote of no confidence for this Sup? Quick to throw Weis under the bus? Dean Angelo you are just as guilty as a terrorist. Double standards.

Chicago is installing a superconducting cable that can stop power outages in a disaster

"It's the nightmare scenario: a terrorist attack, or a huge storm, or any one of countless other disasters, hits a major city. Millions are left without power. It happened during Hurricane Sandy, and many times before then, and it's bound to happen again. Chicago's new program wants to prepare for when it does. Commonwealth Edison will soon begin work on a new system that would keep the city's business center, the Loop, protected during a catastrophe, the Chicago Tribune reports.

"Knocking out a single susbstation — the middlemen between power plants and customers — can disrupt the flow of electricity for a huge area. But there's a way to return power to that area after it's been knocked out. Commonwealth Edison will soon begin laying superconducting cable underground, parallel to the wire that usually ferries electricity to the Loop. The new cable can carry 10 times the power of a standard cable, so if a substation is damaged, the new cable is powerful enough to reroute power from other areas and into the Loop."

He keeps getting elected simply because people know his name. Not because he has any particular talent in the field of pensions and investments. Ask those who vote for him, they will give the usual response, "He's a good guy." Sound familiar? A good guy is a get along guy, a go along guy, not a guy who makes Rahm's neck veins bulge or Daley's before him.

***** You hit the nail on the head with this one- I agree 100%. $100 million in federal funding was given to the city to train us and what did they do with it? We were sent to the old Near North school which was shut down I believe for asbestos, to sit in a room with no air, no windows, and broken bathrooms for 8 hours in the middle of summer, looking at power point presentations- a total joke! We need real scenarios with role play and practical field training, with active shooters in public facilities, cooperative training with Bomb and Arson, EMS, and other units that may be activated during a mass casualty incident. This is training that will save lives of citizens and first responders, god forbid something should happen. Right now, all you have are officers who would be flying by the seat of their pants, using best guess or judgement, or waiting for a supervisor to make a call, should a major incident happen- not exactly the ideal of being "prepared". The morons who run this city spend millions of dollars on trying to create tourist attractions, monumental buildings and parks, yet absolutely nothing on protecting them or the people that visit them.

Now that we're a verified target of these Islamic extremists why isn't TOSPOT brought back immediately??
Half of the funding for that was federal money.
Also why isn't Voluntary Special Employment at both airports immediately brought back??
There should be some inquiring reporters wanting to know.

Special at airports? Don't worry with the openings they will only be 3/4 staffing short!

Sounds that way. Remember when the freight tunnels flooded? They got everyone OUT of the Loop. You'd think you'd want to do the same thing in a terrorist situation, not have people concentrated down there as One Big Target.

Disperse back out into the neighborhoods and the suburbs. It'd be nice to have working lights and refrigerator when you got home...

City has spent all that money. Gone. Feds would have to send new funds because City rarely funds that stuff themselves. That would mean less money for Walsh Construction.

If that's the case then the Feds ought to be forwarding the money to the city immediately. They should, however , put the stipulation that the $$ is only to be used for TOSPOT and Special Employment at both airports.
It's only right that the Feds foot the bill since the reason we're supposedly a strong target is due to this being considered POTUS's hometown.

The feds sent the original money to the City for ToSpot years before the program was ever started. In typical Daley fashion, he spent it on other shit, probably Maggie Daley Park.

Than the Feds, probably the GAO, put it to the City, either use the money for it's intended purpose or refund the money. This is a true story.

Original program was for Feds to pay for 2nd and 3rd Watch and the City staffed the 1st Watch themselves. If anyone remembers, there was no 1st Watch on ToSpot. That is what the City was supposed to staff/pay for. They did not. They only put up what the Feds would pay for.

So, when the funds supposedly ran out, there went ToSpot. City said the terrorists didn't work on 1st Watch so neither would we.

No telling how much money there actually was from the Feds or if the City did indeed spend it on the correct things. But those of us who have been around more than a week or two will seriously doubt the City did anything honestly.

But this much you can take to Las Vegas: The City will NOT fund ToSpot themselves. Not without a body count or a mushroom cloud rising.

==================
It appears that what they are really doing is testing a superconductor that connects a couple substations together so they can back each other up.

There is nothing really different than running wires between the two substations other than these wires are superconductors.

Most people just do not realize the electric grid is just a bunch of wires connected and interconnected in almost random ways as the grid grew.

It is not all that unusual for hospitals (as an example) to get fed from multiple directions so that if one feed goes bust the other one is still available.

For those of you that think these threats are bs, try watching something other than MTV. Get your news from other sources, not abc, nbc, cbs or cnn.

Do a little research on ISIS. Right now they rake in 3 million dollars a day as they control a few oil fields. They have so called normal citizens from various countries throughout Europe going over to join them. Those citizens return back to their countries after a few months of fighting and brutally murdering countless people. They're being recruited in mosques throughout Europe and here. Watch their training videos.

It's been said other muslim terrorist groups thought ISIS was too extreme. Now those other groups all over are joining with ISIS.

So jokes aside, this is quite a serious situation. We have a president who is allowing them to grow and get more power. If they continue their plan to take more cities in the middle east, then take another country, we have a real shit storm on our hands.

To the guy ranting about SWAT and their lack of training vehicles, etc...think on these issues learned from working CTA last month.

the bomb squad, yes we have one, just lost (READ taken away) their explosive range so they have no location to demolish any found device. In that event, they have to find a park with enough MSD to BIP something.

the bomb squad can't respond directly to an event...they have been asking for years to have take home response cars for their technicians with equipment and nada...guys at M&LA said they all went to SWAT...no bad feelings, just the truth.

the bomb squad's response vehicles, which are unpractical because the squad doesn't get a say, are almost all obsolete and the gear and training funds take almost 7 years to release.

To this SWAT ranter I say lighten up... there are bigger things, like suicide vests, large vehicle bombs, HME labs, IEDs and improvised grenades to worry about.

If the two cans are tied together tightly with some quality string and you yell loud enough, then yes.

The bandwith on the broadcast spectrum that the Emergency Services have been trying for years to reserve for police and fire is in great danger of being auctioned off to companies looking for more WiFi channels and other such electronic shit.

Fuck police and fire when there are billions to be made. We will get the leftover shit and Samsung, LG, Apple and Nokia will get the good stuff.

We DID have a terrorist situation, it was on 9/11/2001. They called for evacuation of the loop. It happened mostly. But there was no burning buildings here or bodies in the street and we had power and police directing traffic.

If something goes boom down there it will be like every nasty situation, people with the guts and brains to take charge will take charge and we will figure it out on the fly. Some will screw up and others will perform heroically.

In NYC on 9/11 they had Guiliani wading through the dust and debris but performing magnificently. They also had their 911 center collapse, totally gone. Individual bosses pulled their people together and did their best.

And we have the ballerina. So best for every officer to have their own plan, have some extra water and protein bars and extra cell phone batteries and flashlight batteries and always a full tank of gas. Leave the ANOV books and contact cards at the station.

And be prepared to ignore the most idiotic of bosses. It will be very apparent who they are once the shit hits the fan.

Now Obama is reviewing the policies that enable police departments to acquire military hardware, and whether or not they've been properly trained to use it. Apparently lots of military have reviewed footage from Ferguson and expressed concerns that Ferguson PD showed lack of training on the equipment. http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSKBN0GN0O920140823?irpc=932

You ever wonder how hundreds of protesters can organize in cities far away from Ferguson just a few days after this story went national? Its because they're paid protesters. They work for the politicians. And now, after all the protesting about militarized police, Obama has a bill on his desk to de-militarize the police?! If the bill passes he can say its what the people wanted because of all the protesting. Never let a crisis go to waste. Obama saw an opportunity and took it.

I am now retired, and I never was SWAT a or Bomb Tech and you will never will be either if you are a cop at all not because you lack clout but because you lack the brains and attitude.

Tell me who you want when you have a house with hostage kids and two gunmen who are raping their mother and a wrong move may get everyone killed.

Did you ever find a real hand grenade, or some old dynamite with yellow fuzz on it? Or find a timer wrapped to a propane tank next to a military recruiting office.

Tell me who you would want then.
