And the Weekend Totals Are...(UPDATE)

We had set the bar at sixty for the entire 3-day weekend - there's a science to the whole thing.

Channel 7 had nine dead, thirty-two wounded:
  • Nine people were killed and at least 32 others-including a 4-year-old girl-have been wounded in shootings across Chicago this Memorial Day weekend, police said.
Forty-one total, but they stopped counting at 9:30 AM Monday.

Channel 5 had nine dead with thirty-six wounded:
  • The official start of summertime in Chicago began violently, with nine people dead and at least 36 others injured in shootings across the city.
Forty-five total, but NBC stopped counting when the 10:00 News began, missing a few more.

The Sun Times went as far as twelve dead and 39 wounded:
  • Twelve people were killed and at least 39 — including a 4-year-old girl — were wounded in shootings across Chicago this Memorial Day weekend, police said.
Fifty-one, but no finish time is listed.

The Tribune has an article up - twelve dead, forty-four maimed:
  • A teenage boy and two men have been killed and at least three other people have been wounded in separate shootings since midmorning Monday in Chicago, police said.
Which would put us in the ballpark of fifty-six casualties.

So, we're going to have to ask the only authoritative website in Chicago for a true accounting of the weekend mayhem. HeyJackass.com is the only place for real crime statistics. We'll ask that the numbers be accounted for from Friday afternoon until at least midnight Monday-into-Tuesday morning. As soon as the moderators from HeyJackass post in the comment section, we'll get it posted and begin paying out the winnings.

UPDATE: HeyJackass.com has the Official Totals:
  • Good morning SCC,

    We are going to settle on 57 - 12 killed and another 45 wounded from Friday afternoon through early Tuesday morning. This would make it the bloodiest weekend since last 4th of July's epic shitshow.
And we're still three weeks from the official beginning of summer.

I know a lot of bosses read this blog- even though you say it is insignificant. My partner and I are workers. We are the working police in every sense of the way. We work in a very busy district and we lead the watch in all manner of activity. Compare our activity to others and there is no comparison. I am not talking about bullshit contact cards or parkers. We lead in felony arrests and have done so for five straight fucking years!!! The numbers simply don't lie. Yet time and time again we are denied appointment to the tactical teams. They always make excuses and officers with SIGNIFICANTLY LESS ACTIVITY make it. While we are given all sorts of excuses. So two months ago my partner and I decided to just answer our jobs and assist others. Fuck it. Then the bosses asked us "oh what happened? You guys used to bring in a lot of activities". Well no more. The favoritism in this department is fucking outrageous.

Just as well for you. They don't want us making arrests anymore anyway and if you don't write contacts you wouldn't be on the tact team long. Every member of the team that I am on was making over 200 arrests a year and so far this year we are all under 50. It ain't like it used to be and any time off is nonexistent.

Yes keep promoting triple merit commanders! assign the chosen to tact teams where they put in less hrs than the beat cop.Then assign your units to engle wood and they are no where to be found except filling in the money box on their overtime slips while eating outside their assignment, while one team does the paperwork. Drive around Beverly and mt greenwood their cars are at home. Then go to the local lunch locations and you can conduct roll call.

I'm in the same sinking boat. 10 years in a fast district and I can't make a move to save my life. 2 guys just off their PPO status get on tac somehow, have no clue what they are doing. Been watching them on the street and cannot believe my eye's at how poor their judgement and tactics are. They're lucky people have been watching them to save their ass's. Now I'm told they are disbanding mission teams in the districts and there are only supposed to be 3 tac teams per district. This fucking Mcjerkoff has no clue what he is doing, how does he still have a job. I'm very close to saying fuck this place and become a 1st and 16th of the month police. This department is just plain disgusting. And fuck all you little bitches that say if you don't like it leave. If i could I would, it's not that simple.

12 dead , 45 wounded no outrage , this is normal black activity
Police shoot armed offender , f the police , loot , burn down the town
So sad our political leaders do not discourage activity as long as it is anti police
All victims offenders , how many are from a loving two parent family ?
That is the problem Dan Quayle was warning society about
Sure some women are wealthy , have family support , can balance a full time career and raising a child , not so in the black community , many are on welfare , using drugs , have no family support , don't know who the baby daddies is
That is the problem that keeps people under control of politicians
Would any of our outspoken community leaders , politicians allow their daughter to go to a prom or alone on a date with the gentile giant , and other fine young men that beat up a neighborhood watchman , robbed a store , attempted to disarm a police officer?
What do you think ?

Pay attention. No one cares if you lock people up. They care about contact cards. Go to a CompStat meeting some day. Take care of yourself and your partner. Plus, working Tact is not as good as it used to be. Most of the time when weekends roll around - you get one day off cancelled. Some may like they $$. But you can't plan shit all summer.

Instead of crying on the blog, you and your partner need to be even more proactive in taking charge of your tactical team destiny.

For starters, your activity doesn't mean shit to anybody but you. Seriously.... Is tact a promotion? Does it put any extra money in your
pockets? Does it confer status above your peers? Will your family love you more as a tactical team officer? Or does it just give the
wee lad in you a woody imagining clogging radio bandwidth with a whole lot of "Sixty-Three-Cholly needs a beat car for paper?"

Shit... You're going about it all wrong...

Buy lunch for the tact sergeants and tact lieutenant.
Hang around, be useful to them.
Bray like a jackass at their war stories.
Buy 'em a nice bottle for their birthdays.
Offer to sell/buy their blocks of tickets for the district
Christmas Party.

You DO remember how to play the popularity game from high school, right?

Perhaps you need to consider that YOU are the reason why you're not on the tact team?

Maybe they're dirty and don't want a "nutron" to fuck it all up?
Maybe they don't like the way you and your partner work?
Maybe they flat out don't care for you on a personal level?

Maybe you're their favorite car to abuse when they need some paper done and they wanna keep you righ where you are?

The only plausible benefit in real time from being the play-clothes police is some blue shirt wearing poor slob is being run in circles at
the end of a radio tether, being denied lunch, being denied down time and the like.

It surely sucks to be the poor slob, right?

Maybe the tact team is doing you a favor in not giving you a key to the tact office?
You just might not recognize it yet.

Change your mindset because you have many more years of not being recognized/rewarded
for the work you do on this thankless, shit-doo-doo job working for nasty, ungrateful shit-doo-doo people inside and outside this
Department.

Don't be the guy who ate his gun because shit stopped making sense.
Don't pour yourself into being The PO-leece when society only wishes for you to go away because what you stand for doesn't jibe with
the narrative being spun.

Treat your family right.
Treasure your friends.
Back up your comrades.
Do everything to protect yourself and your partner.

Join the club angry officer. You have finally experienced the epiphany that every good officer must go through at some point in their career. Every honest worker (including myself and numerous others) with no clout has been where you are. Any special unit spot, management spot, etc. goes to those who have phone calls/friends/parents/family in higher positions. It has always, is currently, and will forever be this way. Few exceptions to the rule do exist, and I emphasize "few". The exempt rank of this department know full well that they employ many in these special positions that have neither qualification and/or aptitude to deserve it; the mere fact that there are countless supervisors and exempts who themselves are unqualified, incompetent, and over-promoted beyond capability is evidence of this. This practice is blatant and very open to the point that everyone knows it and pretty much expects it. They know who the workers are, just like they know who the dogs are however, this does not factor in at all when they must accommodate officers under their watch who have clout or when they favor someone naturally. I've seen people down on bs jobs for hours in the station while others are handling calls on their beat. I've seen people on arrests and actually busy doing police work and bosses get mad at them because they think they are taking too long. It's a matter of whether you are "in" with them or not; they like you or they don't. This goes on everywhere, it is an unfortunate circumstance of this department. Best thing you can do is to come to work, answer your calls and do your job to the best of your ability without stressing out over it, have fun with your co-worker(s), and after your tour is over, go home and invest yourself and energy in all the things outside of the job that bring you some joy- whether it's your family, side projects, hobbies, etc. Treat the job like a long distance run, not a sprint. End goal is healthy happy retirement -- far away from this city.

Thank you for the job you've done, and your right about the favoritism times infinity

How much do all of these shootings and killings cost each weekend?? A lot at least. Who pays for all this???

5/26/2015 12:49:00 AM

Figure minimum 100,000 up to millions! No insurance taxpayers pay, personally I don't mind helping poor innocent people like that 4 year old girl shot in the head, but the thugs we really need to open a abandoned warehouse where the people in the communities they live in could have all the mamas advise the elected who "he's was a gonna be a doctor" candidates could practice on the thugs! If they fail no loss, if they saved them we could give them a award! An award like a toy doctors kit that would help out the community having their own peers fixin them up!

And Baltimore ONLY had 9 killed and 27 shot over the weekend. Minor league stuff. To make thinks interesting, Rahm and the Mayor of Baltimore should have a Stanley Cup playoff style bet for the 4th of July weekend. Crabcakes vs deep dish pizza. Should they go with most shootings or more deaths?? Per capita or straight up?? I am feeling confident that we will come out winners, regardless. Have his people call her people to work out the details.

Go ahead and work hard, you Dummies, your Leaders are the ones who created and continue to allow this carnage to flourage with their Communist-Democrat, Head-in-the-Sand Mentality. You are working hard to clean up the messes that yoir own Bosses have created and want to continue. Wise Up and quit pandering to the likes of Hacks like Rahm and Mccarthy.

To Mr.Felony Arrest,

A few things to consider. First, I'm assuming you've got between 5-10 years on. So by now, you should understand that the tact teams today are not your father's tact teams. Quality felony arrests aren't what they seek nowadays. They WANT the yes-men who will get all the BS activity and THEN maybe hunt for quality afterwards. Secondly, anyone who refers to themselves as "the working police" and "the real police in every sense" really comes across as a hand-job of epic proportions. There is more to a good tact team than 8 individuals pulling in numbers. When the team has an opening, it's often discussed in the office "who do you guys want to bring over." Team chemistry is important, and when working that closely the better teams work well together and actually like each other. Bringing a dueche bag to the team can upset the entire team chemistry and screw things up. Take a look in the mirror and ask yourself if people actually WANT to work with a guy like you.

And in the end, it's not that big of a deal anyways. Seriously- in today's climate you'd have to be a goof to go and want to hunt on tact anyways. Fastest way to jam yourself up. You've made the right decision junior, it's time to CYA in the streets and lay low.

If you cant guess they you don't belong perusing the #1 police blog in America! top down from obama to the rest all should be thrown out of office! What kind of totally uninformed morons would vote these people in? bet even the terrorists are laughing, they don't need to attack us the savages thugs and animals do it from within! Cut police, glorify criminals, blame the police recipe for unbridled mayhem and disaster and the leaders of these 3 mentioned cities did just that! Maybe that is "change they can believe in!"

Dear Angry Officer, I'm sorry you feel that way. But do you actually think that a watch commander will let you and your partner go to a tact team when you are making him look good? Why would he/she give you up? Then it also comes down to "it's not what you know but who you know." Just hang in there. If that doesn't work for you and your partner just go to another district where your activity will be more appreciated.

This must be a joke! Almost all south side district are filled by reverse seniority nowadays. 007 just filled up at least 10 spots with guys fresh out of probation (yea, bad idea but thats a different topic). So you and/or your partner are doing something wrong here. On the same note, you may want to lay low until the storm passes.

I rely on the stats from Heyjackass.com because that site is obviously not controlled by The Ballerina. 12 killed & 45 wounded over a weekend and McCarthy is still our superintendent. What is wrong with this picture? It seems apparent to me that Rahm is not interested in curbing this violence - if he was, we certainly wouldn't have had this pathetic excuse for a superintendent for this long.

Not just that did you see the young child states attorney grinning with glee on grand jury indictment? then she must of went through her school books and found more charges you know to pile them on the police! I have been a copper 28 years many court cases, and when charges are piled on like that, the judges normally can see the vengeance and throws out the case! Whats going to happen when the case is tossed out? More anarchy in Baltimore? Will the insane mayor and this girl states attorney lead the clean up? Pathetic!

I know a lot of bosses read this blog- even though you say it is insignificant. My partner and I are workers. We are the working police in every sense of the way. We work in a very busy district and we lead the watch in all manner of activity. Compare our activity to others and there is no comparison. I am not talking about bullshit contact cards or parkers. We lead in felony arrests and have done so for five straight fucking years!!! The numbers simply don't lie. Yet time and time again we are denied appointment to the tactical teams. They always make excuses and officers with SIGNIFICANTLY LESS ACTIVITY make it. While we are given all sorts of excuses. So two months ago my partner and I decided to just answer our jobs and assist others. Fuck it. Then the bosses asked us "oh what happened? You guys used to bring in a lot of activities". Well no more. The favoritism in this department is fucking outrageous.

Believe it or not, its easier when you do parkers and answer your jobs and do the bare minimum. No more putting up with lockup keepers, idiot desk sergeants trying to tell you to add something you don't need to add to your narrative. No more worrying about being sued. No more taking dude to piss 4 times and listening to 2-3 hours of his bullshit, no more putting up with computers not working. Your stress level will go down. I watched people go on tac who never made a felony arrest and i was bringing in hot cars, guns, dope and what not. It didn't mean a thing. Just take care of yourself. They don't care about you if you don't have clout. You could've brought in bin laden years ago and they'd complain that you were taking too long in the station processing him.

No comment from City Hall about the m/fers driving
around the block in reverse while knocking parked cars, yelling foolishness up at dark 2nd floor
windows and banging off guns at airy damned thing that walks, runs, crawls and flies.

Pooky kacked the shit out of Ray-Ray last night cuz Ray-Ray kacked the shit out of Pooky the night before.
Black lives matter until some hard-head, mind-locked, jury-of-one m/fer gets his ass deadened for brandishing/
discharging a pistol in view of the Police.

Civilian friends are incredulous when we tell them about being eyeball to eyeball with a wild m/fer with a gun in his hand as his eyes
are spinning in his fucking head like the windows on a slot machine as he figures his odds even with several Policemen
have guns pointed at HIM...

It's the height of hilarity watching the politicians and police administrators in democratic urban centers field complaints
from protected constituents about how the "eeeeevil police" are stiff-arming the shit out of said constituents.

Lol...
Like m/fer who gets pissed because you won't roll your window down when he wants to complain about something
that has nothing to do with policing/public safety.

"Why ain't choo roll ya window down?"

We hear you just fine so speak ya piece.

"Man fuck you, you rude.

"Grandmother shot while sitting in home: 'I held her ... trying to keep her awake'"

May 27, 2015 8:07 AM

"Jonathan Enriquez was upstairs playing video games Tuesday night when he heard shots he thought sounded like they came from a nearby home in the McKinley Park neighborhood.

"Enriquez, 19, went downstairs to check and found his 61-year-old grandmother lying on the couch, holding her neck and bleeding. At least four bullets had pierced the window behind her.

"“She was just lying there, breathing really heavy,” Enriquez said. “I held her head, trying to keep her awake."

"His grandmother, Miriam Enriquez, had a gunshot wound to the right side of her neck and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where her condition was stabilized...

"His grandmother was watching news on TV, sitting on a couch in front of a window on the first floor, when someone in a white sedan fired at the house around 10:20 p.m...

"Police responded to a call of shots fired and started chasing a car fleeing the scene, authorities said. The car headed south on Interstate 55 and crashed on the ramp to Interstate 294 with police still in pursuit, authorities said.

"Police said they were questioning a suspect involved in the crash..."
