Missing Propoganda

A reader asked another question that someone in the media should have done months ago:
  • ...and where's the weekly Table Of Guns for the TV cameras?
And a reply:
  • Lol!
    They have "minders" not so much to secure the guns at these agit-prop "Look at ALL these bad guns" media events, but to keep people from scanning the inventory tags... They've been busted before for misrepresenting "seized last year" guns as "seized last month" or whatever time frame they select to prop up their propaganda narrative of the day.
Long time readers will recall that commenters here pointed out the startlingly similar numbers, makes and models of guns that were displayed at various press conferences held at different police facilities every Monday last year. Other commenters suggested that media folks compare inventory numbers of the displayed weapons, whereupon the media was forbidden from approaching the tables. Shortly afterward, the "gun-runs" were instituted where Districts desks are required to transport guns to ERPS on a daily basis after years of awaiting ERPS pick-ups two or three times a week.

Now the table of guns has disappeared and the CompStat monsters are mysteriously silent as the killings approach 400. But hey....Crime is down!

How many of these guns are taken away from felons? And how many of the felons are actually prosecuted and thrown into jail? This is a slam dunk crime that should be used to lock up these thugs.

Guy killed today on the westside was named Tyris Ferguson. FERGUSON. Shooting happened on the 800 block of N. St. Louis. ST. LOUIS.

Ferguson is NORTH of STL.

FBI is on the streets. COINTELPRO?

Maybe Illuminati?

Hmm...

No crime between 8am and 8:07am so I'll be able gather a team and get to the bottom of this! If I don't post within the week, it was all a covert government operation and the next time you see me, the story will be "his breaks didn't work as he was driving down hill"...

He was quoted in the media spouting off about supporting crime victims such as in Ferguson Mo. I'm wondering if he was referring to Officer Wilson who was the victim of a vicious attack by a thug who had just committed another felony?

Ohhhhhh THAT will scare him!!

============

Iowa Republican Steve King, however, did not lack ideas. Speaking to a scrum of reporters off the House floor, he offered a a specific, three-step plan on how to respond in the weeks following the announcement.
The first step, King proposes, would be a resolution expressing disapproval of Obama’s order and his authority to issue it. “Then, we’ll see how the president acts. If he reacts to that and decides that Congress is actually going to control the president, then maybe we don’t need to do anything else,” he said.
With Obama presumably unswayed by the non-binding legislation, the House would then move to censure the president, a formal act of reprobation short of impeachment. Censure has no formal articulation in the Constitution but has been used a handful of times throughout U.S. History.
“That’s more personal, it’s more direct. It holds him accountable for the anticipation that he will again violate the oath office,” King said.
The third step is to use Congress’ power of the purse to “cut off all funding to implement or enforce any unconstitutional executive decision,” something that presumably must come in January once the next Congress has convened and Republicans control the Senate.

New D.C. in 025 is a hit with the troops. The D.C. announced that beat cars and officers are going to be held accountable. They have to be on missions and if they don't produce any activity then they have to write a to-from stating why they came in with zeros. Also their Sgt. will be held accountable too if their beat officers come in with zeros.

I think this is fantastic. Most guys do work but some are dogging it and they need to be told that it is a new day in 025.

Lol, good luck with that one. I hope he picks me because I would love to slap the city with a lawsuit if I get punished in any way besides losing my beat car or my partner. Start time change, desk, and lock-up, also won't be a problem either. As long as the checks keep on coming it's all good.

Why do you care anyway about how much activity officers bring in you stroke? As long as people code their jobs when they are done, in a timely manner, then you shouldn't give a shit. Have fun at the district Christmas party being a suckhole.

Ok, I will elaborate. It SHOULD be by seniority. you are around longer,you get benefits, or you should. Whatever can be by seniority, should be by seniority. If you aren't senior enough to get what you want, bid to a different district. If you can't, or don't want to solve your issue that way, then STFU and wait your turn. Or use a P-day.

I detect a note of sarcasm in your statement :)

But seriously, not being a copper and from what I see, this has the distinct smell of books being cooked. I can't tell you how many times I read about what seem to be multiple felonies (for example the three honor roll students mentioned in http://crimeinboystown.blogspot.com/2014/11/cops-attempted-shooting-tied-to-gang.html) that get pleaded down.

I mean I just don't get it. The police arrest a guy for armed robbery. He has a illegal gun, no FOID, no CCW. Again, not a cop, but I see three felonies. And the prosecutors let it get pleaded down to robbery and he walks out with probation.

No wonder crime is down on the books and up on the streets.

You guys know better than me about this stuff. What I am missing?

Speaking of overruns, Emanuel wants to know why there are so many people assigned to the academy and why their workload consists of teaching for 50 minutes a week. Emanuel is thinking about privatizing the academy or bringing in professors from the City Colleges.

It looks like someone was able to get Emanuel's attention in order to complain about the situation.

There are many Supervisors (above sergeant) who have been voicing there concerns about the quality of the training.

Some of these supervisors noticed the problems when they were only sergeants but now they are many levels higher and they are pursuing change.

===============================



Might very well be the worst training academy in the country. The only thing learned there is how screwed up this department is as a whole. That place is a total hideout for the incompetent assholes with limited clout or some other bullshit. That spot shouldn't be more than a 3 year detail tops to keep fresh experienced officers in there teaching actual police work. Those house mice have never been the police and stay there for over 10 years with zero street experience while they pass on other peoples stories as their own.

Speaking of propaganda, we have the best academy in the country. It is the same guy that keeps on posting. Do not take the bait. I am assigned to the academy and I can definitely say that most people in the academy are highly qualified and they do a stellar job. There might be a few rotten apples in the academy but every unit has the bad apples.

I can't recall the arrest statistics in Ferguson, but that doesn't explain why blacks are searched more in Ferguson compared to whites even though the contraband hit rate is far higher when whites are searched compared to blacks. Ferguson also doesn't have a murder problem so this is kind of a flawed fact to use.

The story was a little misleading. A Hispanic donor is more LIKELY to be a match, but isn't necessarily required. So all us other-background folk should go be tested, too.

Worry about YOU, you whiny, little bitch, not what other guys are/aren't doing.

What do you care? What difference does it make to you what others are doing?

Don't worry. With your incredible numbers (are any of these actually ARRESTS for violent crimes?), you'll be on the tact team, get that spot in narcotics, be promoted, or even get that "task force assignment" (just like Jody promised!) in no time.

CPD is all about rewarding the competent & qualified, right? It's all legit.

You'll be able to leave all those dogs in your dust, Hard Charger!

I could tell people that others might get dumped or that those who do not give enough will get all the crape assignments, I could denytime off until I know that me little elves are doing the right thing.

Help me out here:
Why is it that after some asswipe/s get shot at a given corner, the brain trust thinks it a grand plan to then flood that corner with stationary beat cars for the next couple of weeks, thus increasing the workload of the rest of the beat cars? I mean, the shooting has already happened. Sooo, what it is it that bosses think they're preventing or protecting?
I'm so ready for this administration to be over.
