Dallas Attack

A man in an armored van attacked Dallas PD Headquarters this morning, shooting up the building and planting numerous bombs before attempting to escape. Last report has him killed on scene by a sniper. Any of the news links on the right hand side have reports of the event.

Irony - the van was a surplus sheriff van that had been purchased a short while ago.

More irony - the Police Chief is crediting a military surplus .50 caliber rifle used to take out the van engine block and prevent escape - the same equipment the president doesn't want us to have because it's "scary." What's more scary - a trained officer using this equipment to stop a madman or that madman running amok in a bullet-resistant vehicle loaded with stolen ammo and guns and a vendetta against schools, churches and the police?

As a mental exercise, explore the consequences of an attack on a Chicago Police Station. No bullet-resistance glass, open lobbies, plywood desk areas, open offices, no bollards to deflect vehicles, etc.

Total miracle no one, especially cops, were injured. Just another wake up call for what we have always known and tried to prepare for. Keep your head on a swivel and be ever vigilant brothers and sisters.

On an aside, our front desk personnel were able to complain loudly enough to get their area reinforced. They have the safest position around except for the SWAT truck!

They should classify attacks like these, against Police, as acts of terror upon on those who risk their lives every day to protect us, and therefore, also, acts of terror upon us all.

The design of the police stations here should have been changed after 911. No more open design. Suburban stations are much more secure. When the 17th opened there were cameras everywhere inside except the main lobby, front door and parking lots. The bullshit reason I heard was the city did not want to "intimidate" anyone coming into the stations. Remember Angelo Roberts who wanted to take out 11 with a rocket? There have been shoot outs in police stations in the past for those with short memories.

The Brookfield Police Department is much more secure than any of Chicago's police facilities. I had to go there to get step-son, future juvenile delinquent. Brookfield is completely closed off, steel and bullet resistant glass, better than a currency exchange. To get inside to talk to an officer you have to go to a window with thick glass, speak into a microphone, state your business and get escorted inside by an officer. Fucking Lincoln Towing is more secure than our police stations.

Out there one officer does the entire arrest, case report, charging, fingerprints, mug shot, name check, the entire thing. Since junior was 16 he also adjudicated the juvenile arrest process and did the station adjustment. And he did it quickly, as if he did it before. No fucking the dog for half the night. He had to get back on the street to back up his co-workers.

OK, let the flaming and insults begin.

If only the mainstream media were aware of how many CPD and NYPD officers were murdered by INITIALLY UNARMED cop killers since I came OTJ, they'd cease their incessant use of the word "UNARMED" in demonizing police officers.

Check this out from THEE RANT: INITIALLY UNARMED COP KILLERS

We all know that Ferguson PD PO Darren WILSON shot the so-called "Gentle Giant" thug in defense of his life. Also view the video of the preoccupied McKinney PD Cpl. Eric CASEBOLT when the two charging youths were almost on top of him from his blind side before he drew his weapon. Only God knows if Cpl. CASEBOLT would have been murdered with his own pistol.

We've said before and we'll say again...
Police Stations SHOULD be hard, fortified, unfriendly
and forbidding places...

Chicago Police stations are designed with "openness and
transparency" in mind...

Bullshit.

Non tempered, non reinforced floor to ceiling plate glass/the most
ghastly shrapnel.

"Community Friendly" but deadly dangerous to Police lay-out/floor plan.

At a minimum there should be 3 to 5 semi-auto shotguns (Remington. R-12
Entry Model please) loaded heavy with 2oz of buckshot or 1.5oz slugs.

When m/fers attack Police Stations with armored vehicles and the same
"scary guns" that POTUS was saying Police shouldn't have?

Hey Barry?
How is your war on The Police going?

"The communerty needs to see what y'all Police doin' up in dat station.

------------- I read this in a sarcastic tone, but you are allowed to fire at a moving vehicle when it's shooting at you, when the vehicle is the only threat the pencil pushers want you to move out of its path... Horrible decision in my opinion because a car can cause serious bodily harm including death. I just don't want any PO's out there second guessing themselves and getting hurt.

One of the thing I wanted to do before I retired was to gather a bunch of old KEVLAR body armor inserts get a box of deck screws and my drill and screw them to the inside of my district's desk. It might not have stopped everything that might have come in but it would have been better than nothing. I have several old vest hat if anyone is willing to do that I will make a contribution.

Speaking of the safety of our First Responders. Did they ever put any AUTOMATIC EXTERNAL DEFRIBULATORS in any district stations? Are there any in City Hall?

Saturday evening at about 2240 hrs a car in 005 calls out, "On View Shots fired at a CTA bus driver at 119th and Perry , they are shooting into the bus squad". The car is inaudible for a bit and the dispatcher calls a 10-1. The unit who on viewed this shooting into the bus said they weren't shooting at him but at the bus driver and into the bus. The on view car said he was 20 feet away when the offenders(who probably just left fr flakeys block party) began shooting into the bus.

Ok wait a minute. You are 20 feet away and observe several individuals shooting into an occupied CTA BUS and you didn't open up?
But then again it was merit boy 500 X-ray. I wouldn't expect his to do any police work as he never did his whole time on CPD.

Whilw the Dallas incident was still unfolding - what was Ch 7 & 9 covering? Fr Faker/Spike Lee block party and the dedication for the Maggie Daley park with the former mayor/unprosecuted thief King Richie. And last night? The famous Slum Times Finnegan photo was the lead item. Our local media is slowly chipping away at the public's perception of law enforcement while bolstering clowns such as King Rahm, King Richie, and a lunatic priest with his racist film producer.

Who are you going to wait for, SWAT, The National Guard, Rambo?

If the devil is coming in the front he might be bringing fire and explosives.
I would hate to get trapped in a concrete box that would become a crematorium.

When was the last time there was a Fire Drill in any district station? Or an Active Shooter Drill? Look for exits, access, regroup, counterattack.

When out with the family I have taught my kids that if we were out daddy says hide under the table or go lock yourselves in the restroom go do it and call 9-1-1.

Remember, in the good ol' days your forefathers from Ireland came straight off the boat to the CPD. No disrespect to my good Irish friends. I am just saying. It is an old Chicago rule that citizenship is not required.

The left has won. We have to accept it. They have won the culture war.

The police are the enemy. To all who have served, when you wore your military uniform you were a hero. Now that you wear a police uniform, you are hated. Despised, even though you are the same person. It does not matter to them.

Most of us have learned and have already turned our backs on the citizens, however, some of you are hard learners.

Remember this...

The public (left and right) want you to DIE. They laugh when a police officer dies. All you need to do is click on any comments section on any website.

The left demands that the police are killed "What do we want, dead cops, when do we want it? NOW".

All members of the media hate the police (even KASS). Now you have a CNN reporter calling the Dallas shooter courageous and heroic.

You hard learners better wise up quick.

It is time you turned your back to the public with the rest of us.

Ever watch dogs and their demeanor when something comes at them in the night?

1) Some dogs sleep and are unaware. (don't count on them)

2) Other dogs yap and yap and yap. (Nice to warn you, but ineffective in any threat)

3) Then, there are the dogs that just stand quiet and super-alert. If the threat comes near enough, they make a decision to attack - and not stop for anything - even if you try to stop them, they won't. There are centuries of warrior bred into them - that does NOT get "trained out" in ANY training.

You must think like Dog #3 (and get a dog like #3). Then you sleep well.

If there is anyone out there with ill intentions they could control the 'new' stations with ease. Anyone with half brain could click and open any key card controlled door by dss desk. Same with that stupid kitchen walkthrough that opens up access to 80% of the station. Dont even get me started on the unsecured parking lots.

In todays day and age we should be fortified to the extreme. Ask any LAPD officer about their garage parking.

To the 819 poster...let me let u in on a secret...being the police doesn't make us feds you simpleton...almost every attack of this nature are perpetrated by LEFTWING nuts...Gabby Gifford shooter..the plane flown into the fed building..gyro copter onto the white house lawn...the unabomber...on and on...bet this guy loved Obama too you moron

6/14/2015 10:12:00 AM

Keep your head in the sand. Does Cliven Bundy love Obama;did the offender that shot up the Austin pd HQ love Obama;did Mr. Boulware the offender that shot up the Dallas pd HQ love Obama? No they did not. You can rattle off nonsense about left-wingers all you want,but you're just fooling yourself. If you think those people are only referring to the Feds as coming for your guns you're nuts. Last time I checked Austin police and Dallas police ain't Feds.

She's a flamin' IDIOT. They should do a video diary of all the other insensitive, asinine, airhead stuff she says. Lady's out of her depth on a news network.

"Out there one officer does the entire arrest, case report, charging, fingerprints, mug shot, name check, the entire thing"...


If only one officer did the arrest here, (CPD) how the hell would the paper-jumpers get enough activity for VRI?

Or, how would entire tact teams check off with the same a dope arrest?

Please, man! For the sake of all that's good & right, think about what you're implying.

I live 2 doors down from the 16th district and 2 yrs. a guy attacked with just bricks and did a lot of damage. I would never want to work the front desk, too exposed.

Put the blame where it belongs: On the the people that repeatedly say the government is the enemy. NEWSFLASH!!! You are the government!!! So, every time you hear someone say the government is coming for your guns; your rights;freedom and any other nonsense, those people are talking about you. You better wake up. The man that shot up the Austin police HQ and now this guy shoots up Dallas police HQ both had a grudge against the government.

6/13/2015 08:19:00 PM


Sorry but we are not the government, they went rogue on us by going against the will of the people, "healthcare, bailouts, illegal immigration...." That's not what we elected these morons for. Hell, I'll bet the you the last two presidential elections were stolen. You better wake up and get your head out of your ass.

Good work Captain, I will put you in for an "I was Skarred award"

6/13/2015 11:16:00 PM

I have been shot at and unable to return fire because of civilians in the area. People like you, with an ax to grind, are just arm chair quarterback douche bags.

6/14/2015 09:46:00 AM

Yep! Had a guy pound a round off at me from a gun range stance at 36th & State. He took off running across the infield to a Federal St. jet and I had a 3 quarter pull on the trigger but kids coming out of the bldg made me hold off. Putting a round through a 9 year old kid's head going off to school at 9:00 am would definitely have put a damper on my day.

019 on Addison has to share their parking lot with the public per Ald Tunney. We've had PO's cars keyed and other damage by drunks and Cubs fans. On game days the public side is open to Cubs fans. Easy to get to PO's side. And they give out of district PO's a hard time about parking there for Cubs games. Drunken Cubs fans and gay drunks and meth heads, OK, cops not allowed.

Thanks Alderman Tunney.

The left has won. We have to accept it. They have won the culture war.

The police are the enemy. To all who have served, when you wore your military uniform you were a hero. Now that you wear a police uniform, you are hated. Despised, even though you are the same person. It does not matter to them.

Most of us have learned and have already turned our backs on the citizens, however, some of you are hard learners.

Remember this...

The public (left and right) want you to DIE. They laugh when a police officer dies. All you need to do is click on any comments section on any website.

The left demands that the police are killed "What do we want, dead cops, when do we want it? NOW".

All members of the media hate the police (even KASS). Now you have a CNN reporter calling the Dallas shooter courageous and heroic.

You hard learners better wise up quick.

It is time you turned your back to the public with the rest of us.

6/14/2015 08:44:00 AM


You sir are a pussy and full of shit. If you are actually a cop you should quit and go work at Menards. You were never the Police. No, the real public does not hate you and want you to die. We are behind you. So go fuck yourself. When shit hits the fan you wil only be in the way.

I met a nice young buck working patrol in 020 one night who was fresh off the boat from Poland. I could hardly understand the guy, but he was a real nice kid, and seemed like he was a hard worker. He wasn't wearing his crown hat though.

The 'government' has decision-making powers. We do not. We have to follow whatever idiotic rules the GOVERNMENT sets forth for us.

Believe me; if I WAS the 'government', quite a few things would be different.
