Test Run for the Real Thing?

  • A man who had an ISIS flag waving from his vehicle is facing several charges after he threatened police with a bomb Wednesday morning when he was pulled over on the Southwest Side.

    Emad Karakrah, 49, was charged with felony counts of disorderly conduct and aggravated fleeing; and a misdemeanor count of driving on a never-issued license, according to Chicago police. He was also issued three traffic citations.

    Someone called police after seeing a “suspicious person” driving a silver Pontiac southbound in the 7700 block of South Kedzie at 9:18 a.m. with an ISIS flag waving out the window, according to a police report.

    Officers attempted to pull over the vehicle, but the driver took off, according to the report. The officers called for assistance, and another officer pulled the vehicle over after it went through several red lights.

    The man told police during his arrest that there was a bomb in the car and he would detonate it if they searched the vehicle, according to the report.
Unfortunately, exactly what we're going to be dealing with on a regular basis for the duration of our careers.

Unfortunately the next time may be real. These guys, if the real deal, play bare knuckle and for keeps. They don't mess around and are not afraid to die. Sounds thus guy was a wanna be or crazy or both. Unfortunately our federal government has it's head in the sand where Islam is concerned.

ISIS member in Chicago?

Shoot, even I saw him pull a knife on that officer and I'm all the way down here in Mississippi...

I mean, not that anyone would ever shoot someone and then drop a knife at their feet before the cameras showed up or anything.

A 55000 dollar bond? Are you kidding me? A man leads a chase on the south side and threatens officers with an explosive and this is all he gets? I suppose if he had a conceal and carry permit he would have gotten a higher bond.

The government isn't serious about terrorism just like it isn't serious about gun violence. Threaten a cop with an (not present) explosive and get a 55k bond. Point a gun at the police and get 30 days home confinement at your grandmothers house.

FBI National Domestic Threat Assessment Omits Islamist Terrorism
Internal report labels white supremacists, black separatists, militias, abortion extremists main domestic extremists




The FBI’s most recent national threat assessment for domestic terrorism makes no reference to Islamist terror threats, despite last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting—both carried out by radical Muslim Americans.

Instead, the internal FBI intelligence report concluded in its 2013 assessment published this month that the threat to U.S. internal security from extremists is limited to attacks and activities by eight types of domestic extremist movements—none motivated by radical Islam.

They include anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with “sovereign citizen” nationalists, and anarchists. Other domestic threat groups outlined by the FBI assessment include violent animal rights and environmentalist extremists, black separatists, anti- and pro-abortion activists, and Puerto Rican nationalists.

Muslim Brotherhood Takes Charge of FBI Counterterrorism Training

“Cultural suicide” is what Rep. Allen West calls the direction that U.S. national security—and especially the FBI—is taking America with its policy of political correctness towards the Muslim Brotherhood.

Lone terrorists or killers are almost impossible to neutralize until they act and a quick response either by citizens or law enforcement significantly minimizes causalities. If utilized, CCW in a lone gun man situation saves lives.

My biggest fear is a car/bus/train bomb attack because these have been used in Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Hopefully, intelligence is being shared with local police departments by the federal intelligence community.

The odds are still in our favor of not experiencing a terror act. However, it is probable.

Be safe and enjoy life.

Hey Forrest - contrary to what you think, we don't do shit like that here. No one carries around a "drop gun" or "drop knife" like you see on TV or read about in fiction novels. Also, the cameras are always rolling. Everyone's got one today - it's called a phone.

There's a big difference between the stupid cop shows you see on TV and real police work. Even the garbage on "COPS" is heavily edited.

The biggest problem in law enforcement today isn't ISIS - it's the crappy leadership we have - courtesy of affirmative action.

Looney tune Islamic gets hurt, "community" gets butt hurt, media gets on hobby horse, progressive and therefore gutless politicians get scared. Scared bosses declare Islamists a protected class, and not subject to investigation. Then any real terrorist plotting will be easier in the future.

the best part here is that our command staff continue to fail by planning based on what incidents have happened as a gauge for future attacks instead of planning for what may happen based on actionable intelligence...

an example...

while here in Chicago, our bomb unit has no explosive range and is still tied to large response vehicles because they can not get equipment, vehicles or training necessary to assist in a mobile battlefield like Boston...

Further, there are no training classes at the academy or roll calls to prepare officers for what is to come... so, be careful at those "unattended bag" calls

we are so screwed

And in other news, as states are welcoming illegal alien children into their school systems, the public school system in Massachusetts informed the Federal Government that quite a number of "children" that are being brought into their system look A LOT OLDER than they should be. Some were even said to have graying hair.


The feds reaction to their query? The public school system is NOT ALLOWED to ask for PROOF OF AGE. Doing so would be a violation of federal law.

"never issued" means just that. The subject may have an assigned DL # from receiving previous citations, but never got one from Secretary of state.

A fake DL means the subject bought a fictitious DL from 26th st somewhere. Can easily be identified as fake by running the DL #.

An "international DL" is a made up document usually sold by some "travel agency" for around $150. Lots of European illegals had international DL's (now any illegal can get a DL)

When we were at the outskirts of Baghdad, instead of a kinetic operation, we did a "Thunder Run". We sent a column of flag-bedecked armored vehicles on a circuit through the Baghdad main roads for intimidation purposes, aiming at morale. Indeed, a second Thunder Run gave us the Green Zone.

ISIS took the administration's measure and are doing Thunder Runs through Chicago.

You sound like a former Marine of at least someone who knows the value of training. Training has never been a priority on the Chicago Police Department. It is not someplace the City likes to put money. They put streaming videos on the computers and mark everyone as trained. We shoot 30 rounds at a stationary paper target once a year and that is the extent of our recurring firearms training.

We had a former Marine Colonel in charge of training some years past. Many veterans saw the only actual training they saw in years under his direction. When the superintendent who hired him (himself a former marine) retired, a couple of city hall hacks showed up at the training division and escorted him off the property and told him his services were no longer needed.

Training is a place this city cuts funding to the bone and beyond.

Recruits fresh from the police academy are now hitting the street with NO field training or sometimes, riding 4 or 5 up in a squad with one training officer. The city destroyed the Field training program and caused most good FTO's to resign their positions and revert to police officer.

So, in answer to your question, why are they neglecting training? No one in power recognizes the value of good training. They look to save money and figure they trained you once, that ought to be enough. Training on this job is truly a joke.

I paid for my own tactical firearms training and took off from work and went on my own time to privately run training programs and then, my boss acted like he was doing me a favor by allowing me to go on my time and spend my money to train myself.

Truth, every bit of it, so help me God.
