Mitchell Makes Sense?

  • Chicago’s segregated housing pattern and the race of persons accused of committing most gun crimes make it likely that the Chicago Police Department will bump heads with the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois.

    That happened on Monday when the organization released its analysis of stop and frisk arrests.

    The ACLU found that the controversial policing strategy is “disproportionately concentrated in the black community,” and that African Americans were “subjected to 72% of all stops, yet constitute just 32% of the city’s population.”

    [...] When you look at these numbers, it certainly seems to suggest that Chicago police are targeting black people without reason for the invasive and humiliating treatment.

    But I don’t believe that to be the case.
We're going to have to start smoking dope again, too.

Thank you Mary Mitchell for your article. Nothing else is needed guys. Whatever articles she wrote in past against law enforcement, let it go. She got this one right. We're not going to complete our mission unless the community trusts us. Mary Mitchell wrote an accurate article and perhaps opened the door for better media reporting.

"Chicago’s segregated housing pattern" has a very great deal to do with "the race of persons accused of committing most gun crimes."

*

There you go -- the "dialogue" which Eric Holder says "we're too cowardly to have," but which is immediately suppressed when someone does speak out about what they have experienced and observed for more than half a century.

Pass all the enforced-integration laws you want -- it cannot stop people who want a safe, quiet life from voting the other way with their feet.

"When you look at these numbers, it certainly seems to suggest that Chicago police are targeting black people without reason for the invasive and humiliating treatment."

"Empty cartridges and blood line the gutters of the street."

-- Fire On The Mountain, Marshall Tucker Band

...and she's still saying "No reason." Go have a look in the new expanded county morgue cooler with the electric hoists before you say that.

Have some kid at the Starbucks write racial remarks on my cup of coffee. That'll fix this, right?

Oops. Missed Mitchell's last line. What I wrote still stands otherwise, though, and I can be excused after being inundated with liberal goo all my life. Not awake yet, either...

"But I don’t believe that to be the case....the only sure way to reduce the number of stop and frisks in black communities is to significantly reduce the crime in those neighborhoods.

"That’s not on police.

"That’s on the people who live there."

Correct -- and it's good to hear.

The ACLU needs to sue the state of Illinois to reduce/eliminate the draconian expense and burdensome requirements for a concealed carry permit -- clearly the honor students would have permits for their gats if it wasn't so costly and time consuming to jump through the legal hoops of licensing, and that's discrimination, dammit!

I've been detailed to the academy for about 2 months now. I was floored to learn of the new stress free work place program they run. When a recruit is feeling overwhelmed or like they are being singled out, they can hold up a red card. They are then excused from that activity, and the instructors can't talk to that recruit for at least 2 hrs. If the recruit holds up the red card twice in a day, they are allowed to skip the next class and stay in a "stress free zone" and take a nap or relax until they feel better. What is going on with this department?

What is the overall stat of crime and what race commits the crime. For 32% of the population they commit near 80% of all crime. The figures are there in the CPD crime data report even Mcdata can see that.

It has been destroyed.

I hope they give the recruits a stack of red cards to use when offenders swear at them, shoot them and aim their cars at them. Better save a couple of cards for when they handle a bad child abuse case or see a dead body in the gutter, too.

There. There it is -- the solution to "police overmilitarization" and "excessive use of deadly force." All patrol ofc. to be issued a red card.

200 of them coming down off the porches at you on a hot night, you hold up the card.

Like magic.

Everyone turns around, walks back to the stoop, and gets into the gin 'n juice again, and we're all good.

Because when they call it "stop and frisk" it's a better news story since "stop and frisk" is controversial. Even though we all know only a fraction of people contact carded are actually frisked.

Proposed Referendum for next Election,

Should Chicago Police target their street stops in regards to race, gender, and age to reflect the,

a) population of the city,

b) most common race, gender, and age of identified criminals in the area they patrol.

Let's be democratic about this.

If the citizens of Chicago want the C.P.D. to stop females half the time, and races by about a third each, and to spread those stops among various ages, then so be it.

It might be hard in some areas to find enough Native American Elderly Women to stop to round out the target demographics but give it a shot.

Major crime will go up.

Police brutality will go down.

Old women and 5yr old kids usually aren't high, holding dope, carrying a gun, or wanted by any police agency.

So its not a street stop turned into a fight for life.

Protests will go way down.

We will be a P.C. Police Dept.

We would not be doing our job, but what the hell.

It was the 8300 block. I believe it was 8315, and this shooting is related to the homicide that occurred about 10 days ago on 5800 block of Patterson. Someone else posted Milwaukee kings and royals feuding. 8500 block is forest preserves or golf course. tough crowd here.

Last two Supt's have been outsiders. Maybe it's just a coincidence - but up until they both arrive - we didn't do many CONTACT CARDS. Somehow under their leadership - these silly cards became an important factor in THEIR crime stats - up until then - very few cards were actually done - and CPD brass didn't use them as a viable stat - hell, bus checks counted more for activity than a contact card. Now a days - big bosses have out such an emphasis on these silly CARDS - and commanders want more, more more - for fear up being called out at CompStat. One of the first things they look at are amount of cards written. In Typical CPD fashion - CONTACT CARDS have become more important than ARRESTS or any other form of activity. Back in the day - they played the numbers game with ARRESTS - vs. today's numbers game with CONTACT CARDS. Silly games.
