Just What You Want The Tourists To See

  • Two drunken men got “superficial” cuts after fighting each other Saturday night near Buckingham Fountain in the Loop, police said.

    The incident happened around 10:15 p.m. in the 500 block of South Columbus Drive, according to Chicago Police Department's Office of News Affairs.

    The men, whose ages were not immediately available, were both intoxicated, police said. One of the men refused medical attention, and the second man walked away from the incident.

    Both did not file a police report, and no one was taken into custody as a result, police said.
Be sure to tell all your friends that you saw a gen-u-ine Chicago knife-fight!

Didn't want a report. If it was happened a report should have been made out. Refer to the field reporting manual and incident reporting manual.

What a joke, and it made the news.


Next it didn't happen, because it wasn't reported.

Obama says the police are to blame...those poor men needed raises in the minimum wage, federally subsidized chemical dependence and substance abuse counseling, a place to live (at taxpayer expense), a criminal court system that is adequately funded to screen them for the mental health treatment they should have been receiving since birth, a free cell phone, a snap/link card, a gucci belt, hot stone massage therapy, a mani/pedi, some time on the links with the golfer-in-chief, a lifetime supply of temporary FEMA shelters, and a badge.
They should be deputized so as to bridge the gulf of mistrust that obozo says exists between a racially divided America.

SCC is right there is nothing like a gen-u-wine Chicago knife fight to impress the tourists. The best thing about it you don't have to worry about stray bullets. Now when they start beheading, that will be bad for the tourist trade.

Naw SCC!

What the tourists NEED to see is that raggedy assed Olds Aurora with mismatched 28's in wildly varying degrees off the vertical plane being driven down the street in reverse with traffic (WHOOO!) and every window occupied by ignant M/Fers waving pistols and yelling slogans as they bang and knock parked cars...

"Fuck y'all bitches lookin' at? TRIFE LIFE!"
>SCREEECH! BAM! CRUNCH!<

Mmmm-Hmmm!
Chicago is full of this kind of shit to spilling out the upper floor windows...

And since a very sucessful public relations war has been waged against the rugged Policing needed to combat the rugged criminals, no Policeman in their right mind is going to do a damned proactive thing except protect himself, his fellow officers and drop a report on everything else.

What?
It's The Police who are out of control, right?
The public rests easier with the outrages and
the atrocities committed by the armed wing of Dude Inc. than the comparatively few but magnified fuck-ups by Policemen.

"Y'all held to a higher standard an' shit!"

Which means there are absolutely no expectations of
civilized behavior of those people who contribute nothing but willful ignorance and love of death, distruction, disorder and misery to this city?

It seems that the public has decided who they're
aligned with.

Is there ANYBODY out there willing to consider what
The real implications are in this war against the Police and what REALLY needs to be done to make this city
safe for ALL?

What will it really take to put bad genie back in his bottle?

Or are you Chicagoans so full of hate for The Police that you willingly accept being vexed with the plague
spilling in from the garden spots?

Forget about Rahm and McLiar... They give a pointy shit-end about you and your family's safety.

If they did, there wouldn't be the enormous amount of spin, message control and juked statistics based on numbers blown out of assorted asses at City Hall & 3510...

It's easy to beat on and vilify the Police.
Easier still to laugh while they're being starved of
manpower, resources, equipment and most importantly, sane and competent leadership.

"The fire Friday morning closed one of the nation's busiest air traffic control centers, and was allegedly set by contract employee Brian Howard as part of a suicide attempt.

"Howard, 36, of Naperville, was charged Friday afternoon with one count of destruction of aircraft or aircraft facilities.

"He remained hospitalized and under police guard on Sunday, said Thomas Ahern, special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives..."

Woman, girl killed in domestic-related killing on NW side

"A woman and a girl were found dead in a home on the Northwest Side and a man is in custody after he claimed that he killed his family, police said.

"The victims' identities were not being made public as of Sunday night, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. The office described them as a "possible teenager'' and a woman possibly in her 30s. Both were pronounced dead on the scene at 9:15 a.m. and autopsies will be performed Monday, according to the medical examiner's office.

"At about 9 a.m. a man who was described as suicidal was found in North Suburban Waukegan police said. The man said that he had killed family members at his home on the 3400 block of North Odell Avenue...He apparently attempted to decapitate the two victims, police said..."

I am not saying that we never got any breaks (I would be lying if I said that), that was many years ago. For the past several years, we have not gotten any breaks.

I have worked as a downtown hotel concierge for 10 years and I can tell you personal safety is definitely a major concern amongst tourists - never more than this year. I would say approx 50 to 75% of the guests i assist inquire as to the safety of the area around the hotel (which is in River North) and the general downtown area. I have had to warn tourists against flash mobs in previous years but this year i have had to warn guests going to Wrigley not to use trains after dark unless it is right after the game. Stay away from Belmont after dark. And for the late night club goers with the shootings outside of river north clubs and a few late night knife fights on Michigan ave I have cautioned them as well. Sadly, an increasing trend especially with visiting families has been that they return to the hotel before it gets dark and stay in for the night. No doubt staying in after dark means less money spent and decreased revenue for the city. This knife fight at Buckingham fountain is alarming but what is most disturbing is that despite the police making contact with one of the offenders no arrest or report was made. If two people had a gun fight at the fountain but no one was hit would no report or arrests be made?!! Perhaps , it would help us non CPD Officers understand whether this was handled correctly or not if some of you active PO's weighed in as to whether this was handed properly and if this practice is new or has been in place for a long time. If not usual, was this officer just lazy or under pressure from above to only file reports when absolutely required? Please help us understand what is going on....

"Just What You Want Tourists To See" AND HEAR!

Some years ago I was working a detail around Buckingham Fountain.

At precisely 2300 there was a swarm of CPD vehicle going around the park. On the loudspeakers, in the roughest language imaginable, they threatened everyone with arrest told those tourists to immediately vacate the park. There had been few assaults earlier in the month and this was the solution to threaten tourists, some in evening dress, many from foreign countries like they were the scum of the earth. Don’t patrol and provide security, threaten potential victims, tourists walking on a beautiful evening in a park on Michigan Avenue and Columbus Drive.

Officer, where did you learn public speaking, Dachau?

Get them real real drunk, put them in one of those arena cages and sell tickets.

Some fancy names, costumes, prop swords and gravel voiced announcers and bikini ring girls.

Chicago Gladiator Fest!

We who are about to die salute you!

Bring on the tourists. We'll make a fortune!

Tie them together at the leg and let them have it out with their knives on the deck.

"ARRR! I be pirate!"

Performances hourly.
