It Must Be a Miracle!

  • Residents in the Englewood police district celebrated the Fourth of July weekend like most in Chicago.

    Some had barbecues. They listened to music. Children rode their bicycles up and down their South Side blocks and played basketball in the middle of the street.

    But what stood out was this: Not a single person was shot there during the long holiday weekend, a rare feat for an area long known for its rampant and stubborn gun violence.

    During last year's July 4 weekend, the police district — which covers the Englewood and West Englewood neighborhoods — was one of the most violent of all 22 districts, with at least 10 people shot. Three of them died.
Hey, you know who else didn't have a single shooting or homicide, this Fourth of July AND possibly last year's Fourth, too?
  • Beverly. Edison Park. Clearing. Mount Greenwood. A few others.
But we don't see any headlines for that.

Don't look at that 7 year old who was murdered in the street.
Look at englewood where there wasn't anybody shot in one weekend and don't look at the 1,000 other people who have been shot so far this year.
This is a feeble attempt by Rahm, Garry and their ilk to try and deflect attention away from the mayhem and pull the wool over peoples eyes. Everything is hunky dory right Rahm.
This proves who controls the media.

So what is the new policing strategy? More barbeques?

Maybe they will get Moo and Oink funded with a couple of Million $$ for a Safe Neighborhood Barbeque Program.

Maybe some Tahoes will be reconfigured to deliver slabs of ribs. Hey, now THAT's the ticket.

Call 9-1-1 for Emergencies. 3-1-1 for non-Emergencies, and now 7-1-1 for Special Delivery on Ribs, Chicken, and Drinks.

Sounds stupid? Compared to some of the other "strategies" that have been implemented, this sounds like a Master Plan.

It is on National News, neighbors and two reverends from Chicago are suing neighboring suburbs because the suburbs have gun stores that flood Chicago neighborhoods with guns that kill children, and violate the civil rights of the people that live in these Chicago neighborhoods. These stores sold over 2000 guns that were used in crimes in Chicago, as proved by the CPD. The Plaintiffs' want the suburbs to put the gun stores out of business, so that the killing will stop, civil rights will be safe. You can't make this stuff up.

Obama to Introduce New Rules to Desegregate Neighborhood

Coming to a neighborhood near you........The Obama administration on Wednesday will announce new rules requiring cities to look for racial bias in housing practices in order to promote racially integrated neighborhoods, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

The rules would further the work of the landmark 1968 Fair Housing Act, which made it illegal to refuse to sell or rent a home to a person based on race, religion, gender or national origin.

The Post said cities and towns now would be required to look for patterns of racial bias in local housing, report the results every three to five years and set goals on how to reduce segregation in housing.

HUD unveils regs to diversify neighborhoods

July 08, 2015

"WASHINGTON – The Obama administration announced new rules on Wednesday that are meant to racially integrate America's neighborhoods but some conservatives claim are an attempt by Washington to play a heavy-handed role in creating “utopias.”

"The new HUD housing rule comes on the heels of a landmark Supreme Court decision that reaffirmed the federal agency’s power to ban housing policies that hurt minorities.

"This overreaching new regulation is an attempt to extort communities into giving up control of local zoning decisions and reengineer the makeup of our neighborhoods,” Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., told FoxNews.com.

"Just as the president has used the DOJ, IRS and DHS as a political weapon, he has now expanded his arsenal to include HUD as a way of punishing neighborhoods that don’t fall in line with his liberal agenda," he added.

"Gosar said the HUD rule attempts to tell Americans “how we can live, where we go to school, how we will vote” and “what this utopian type of neighborhood should look like.”

"This rule is not about racial integration; racial segregation in housing is illegal and has been for decades,” Heritage Foundation fellow Hans von Spakovsky told FoxNews.com. “Americans have the ability to live anywhere they want. This is about left-wing, progressive social urban planners who have taken control through the Obama administration who hate suburbs and don’t like Americans using cars or owning single family homes in neighborhoods that are not high-density.

"He believes the rule will make things worse for the poor. "They are using federal housing money intended to improve the bad housing of poor Americans as the lever to force compliance with these new regulations,” he said. "But that money is most needed in blighted, inner city urban neighborhoods. This federal utopian vision will divert that needed federal money into suburbs where it is not needed, leaving poor Americans living in substandard, terrible housing."

I wonder if all the police in Englewood simply moved the shooters to other areas. Maybe the offender in the downtown shooting? What about all the kids causing a stampede at Navy Peir by throwing fireworks and running thru the crowd yelling about a bomb and people shooting. Where they from EW? Would we have been better off letting them do what they do, but in EW?

To the off topic commentator above: White people who now move into Humboldt Park aren't "newcomers." We were there long before -- just that we moved out of Humboldt park 46 years ago because of "newcomers" who began moving in then and displacing "us" who had lived there for generations. And I can bet the new wave of hipster, yuppie, fresh faced "white people" who are "discovering" Humboldt Park and moving in there now are not venturing too far west of Homan Avenue...unless they like getting their heads bashed in and robbed.

I see lots of improvements in the a Eastern area of Englewood, also in Bronzeville.

There are simply a lot, lot less lower class, AFDC public housing folks in these neighborhoods.

Take the Green Line El ride to Englewood from downtown - the view is great above the city and I notice, lots and lots of open space.

Aren't those signs a scream, in a city that built an experimental graphite reactor right in the middle of town, in the old Stagg Field (now site of Regenstein Library) on the U. of C. campus?

Needles on the meters going up and up, counters clicking faster and faster..."The reaction is self-sustaining." Control rods go back in.

Everyone exhales.

Guys were standing on top of the pile in case the rods warped and got stuck, with buckets of cadmium solution -- absorbs neutrons -- to try to stop a runaway. They were called the "Suicide Squad."

Thank you, Enrico Fermi, for knowing what the hell you were doing with that slide rule, else we'd still have a glowing hole in the ground here.

And...not strictly nuclear, but were you ever in Jackson Park, walking right past the perimeter fence of one of the Nike ground-to-air sites, when that shattering Klaxon warning horn blew, the doors opened, and those missiles came out into launch position? I thought we were going to die. The missile exhaust blast would have killed us, as close as we were.

Sticks in your mind.

Signs? I still have a "FALLOUT SHELTER" sign, surplused out after they gave up on Civil Defense and offered us all up as sacrifices to the doctrine of "Mutual Assured Destruction."

USAF scrambled fighters twice over the Fourth of July weekend, to intercept Russian Tupolev bombers flying close to California and Alaska. Hope our guys gave 'em a good pass; the Tupolevs still have propellers, but they can indeed get here...

Quit blaming the police for black society's inequities......quit having fatherless children, keep your kids in school, help them with homework, teach them respect, teach them manners, teach them stealing and lying is wrong.....so until you do that, you can just keep getting that RPC check, but you will be accomplishing nothing.....

There is a lot of prejudice displayed here...some racism and several comments that have nothing to do with anything except the realities of police work. With that said, you have no idea how many comments are written by black officers and how many share the views you think are racist. I visited a Rainbow Push meeting years ago (is Ms.Parker still there?) and I'm not sure but I think I paid for membership. There is a reason I never returned and I have not regretted that decision. I'm a lifelong south sider and I'm a police officer too..and I just so happen to be black. If this blog is too much for you (and sometimes it can be a lot for me), play WVON all day. I used to do that too but on the weekdays only Charles Butler, Lenny McAllister and Saleem Muwahkil sounded like they knew what there talking about. I did like Roland Martin and Jeremy Leavitt but many of the most educated and articulate hosts don't last long.

I must say -- I call "bullshit."

If people -- no matter what color or from what walk of life -- do awful things, those things will be discussed in public. If you read around the site, you will have to admit that we apply that uniformly here. From Willie shooting on the corner all the way up to the district commander, the superintendent, the mayor, the governor, and the president, no one is immune from a well-placed arrow in their behind if they are a wrong guy.

Take it light. You undoubtedly see many of the same things every day that we see.

"I hate to think you folks are protecting us. The fox is watching the henhouse."

The police are just blue. Sworn to serve and protect everyone. One of the meanest-sounding guys on here (and funniest writers) still has awful memories of seeing someone of a different race burn to death in a fire behind a locked burglar gate, when there was just nothing he could do. Can't tear out red-hot, bolted-in, heavy steel bars with your bare hands -- but I know he would have done so were it possible. I would too.

If you have a better number than 911 to call in an emergency, be our guest.

"I work for Rainbow Push and I think this website needs to come down."

Uh -- have you noticed that the police aren't demanding that your web site come down?

The police do not cause the problems in your "community;" they merely struggle to contain them -- often at the risk of their own lives, trying to help people who care about nothing and will kill over nothing.

Grow up.

Glad you stopped by. Really. Big shoulders and thick skins here; we would not dream of silencing you, although we might very well tell you that you are full of crap. You will also get props when you are right. The best friendships continue, even grow stronger, when people are open and honest with each other. That is the only way you can make any progress. Covering s__t up never solves anything; it just makes it worse.

God bless and stay safe.

Just to add on a little more reality. No copper doing the only job he really loves -- dangerous and difficult hours sometimes (have to go to court, regular day off canceled, 12-hour shifts over times like 4th Of July weekend) but good pay -- kisses his wife and kids goodbye and then goes out the door thinking "How can I unjustly shoot someone, how can I beat someone up today for fun and jeopardize my career and my family's future."

Just want the watch to go as smooth and easy as possible for all concerned, business gets taken care of and hopefully no one gets hurt, then get home again in one piece, kiss family hi again, shower, get into comfortable clean T-shirt and shorts after wearing that stiff duty belt that messes up your back from the weight, and sweating into that hot, heavy vest all day, running up and down stairs and stuff.

Get a cold one, and then maybe mow the lawn or oil that old fishing reel that's been sitting on the workbench for a long time now, and just relax a little. Don't much talk about street stuff; talk about how Grandma's doing in the hospital or what's wrong on the truck and what it needs to be fixed. Look at kid's paintings they did in school. See how the dog ate the chair cushions again. Like that.

Like the man said, "What you think we is?"

Have a good one.

House moves to ban Confederate flag in federal cemeteries

July 08, 2015

"The House has voted to ban the display of Confederate flags at historic federal cemeteries in the deep South.

"The low-profile move came late Tuesday after a brief debate on a measure funding the National Park Service, which maintains 14 national cemeteries, most of which contain graves of Civil War soldiers.

"The proposal by California Democrat Jared Huffman would block the Park Service from allowing private groups from decorating the graves of southern soldiers with Confederate flags in states that commemorate Confederate Memorial Day. The cemeteries affected are the Andersonville and Vicksburg cemeteries in Georgia and Mississippi."

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/07/08/house-moves-to-ban-confederate-flag-in-federal-cemeteries/?intcmp=latestnews

The voluteers did such a beautiful job decorating these cemeteries, flowers too. It was a sobering, inspiring sight, bringing to mind the suffering and sacrifice of that conflict.

Now we have "War Graves, Second Class."

I'm thinking of a black mourning flag on each grave next year imprinted, "HERE LIES A CONFEDERATE SOLDIER. HISTORIC FLAG BANNED BY FEDERAL GOVERNMENT."

So crazy that they're spitting on the honored dead of 150 years ago.

Real serious backlash building up to all this...

PBS gets Federal funding. Ban them from ever running Ken Burns' "Civil War" series again.

As someone said of ISIS' destruction of historical sites and artifacts, "they wish to destroy the past in order to control the future."

Illegal immigrant accused of burning three-year-old alive, killing child's mom

July 08, 2015

"Two more Americans have been slaughtered by an illegal alien who had previously been deported.

"Prudencio Ramirez stands accused of killing his 18 year old girlfriend and her three year old son in Washington State.

"Prosecutors say the victims were shot and then stuffed inside a burning car.

"The coroner says it is likely the little boy was burned alive.

"How many more Americans must die at the hands of illegal aliens before our borders are secured?

"The Republicans don't care. They don't want to stand up to the donor class. The Democrats sure don't care. They want the new voters. Big Business? They want the cheap labor.

"President Obama promised to fundamentally transform America -- and this is how he's doing it -- by opening up our borders and flooding the nation with millions of illegals.

"Law enforcement has essentially been ordered to stand down as our nation has been invaded."

Are illegals less likely to be ticketed /arrested?
Thanks!

7/08/2015 06:20:00 AM

First of all, they are not called "illegals". The correct term is undocumented.

The city of Chicago is an official sanctuary city. We as police officers can not ask for their legal residency status. Whether they are born here, a naturalized citizen, a green card holder or undocumented. It is against city of Chicago directives and an officer can get in to a lot of trouble. We can not call the Immigration and Customs Enforcement if an undocumented person commits a heinous crime. We simply arrest them and they go to Cook County Jail to await a bond hearing and at that time a determination may be made if ICE will be called. The chances of that happening are slim to none and slim just left the building. So yes, undocumented people are routinely released from County Jail all the time, even for very heinous acts.

A lot of undocumented people have the new TVDL- called Temporary Visitor Driver's License. So you can ticket them if they commit an infraction but you can't take them into the station. Even if they don't have a license, all they do at the station is sign an I-Bond. Which is just their signature.

Despite San Francisco criticism, Clinton once backed sanctuary city policies

July 08, 2015

"High-profile Democrats now speaking out about San Francisco's "sanctuary" treatment of an illegal immigrant charged with the murder of a young woman weren't always so critical of the policies.

"Hillary Clinton and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., [and Sen. Barbara Boxer all jumped in and] criticized San Francisco for ignoring a federal request to hold Francisco Sanchez -- who already had been deported five times -- when he went into city custody in March. He was released in April, and is now in jail for the murder last week of Kate Steinle, 32.

"The city made a mistake, not to deport someone that the federal government strongly felt should be deported. So I have absolutely no support for a city that ignores the strong evidence that should be acted on."

"But Clinton, when she was a New York senator running for president in 2007, was openly supportive of sanctuary city policies, which limit cooperation with federal immigration officials.

"Without [these policies] you will have people hiding from the police. And I think that is a real direct threat to the personal safety and security of all the citizens."

"Asked if she would allow sanctuary cities to disobey federal law, Clinton said: "Well, I don't think there is any choice."

Congratulations...
You "FOUND" us.
Now what?

On what premise do you base your statement of "this is why racism exists?"

You see, you're a mental child interrupting adult conversation by parroting
something ignorant you overheard the big kids jaw-jacking about at recess.

>Hard Back-Hand Slap Across The Mouth<

As for you "working for" PUSH?
So what?

You all have such a hard-on against anyone who is a proponent
of any POV opposed to the eye-watering Alinskite Progressivism
and the relentless excuse making, responsibility avoidance, tragedy
pimping, race card playing to derail any constructive dialog trending
toward an actual impact with truth, reason and common sense.

We hope that when "Brother's Keeper" sails on down the road upon
completion of his second and FINAL term, a new course for this nation
will commence with RICO and IRS investigations will take place against
PUSH and the freedom hating, anti-American traitors affiliated with that organization.

You're here thinking you're bothering Policemen.
Why don't you go to those "fo' conuh hustlah"
blogs and talk your "website needs to come down"
idiocy to THEM and see what happens?

>Crickets!<

Oh wait...
You feel SAFE trash-talking Policemen because you're pretty
certain they won't crash cars through your front and back doors
and set your house on fire with you and yours trapped inside.

Mistuh fo' conuh (and others) have no compelling rules prohibiting such activity.

Find yourself on the business end of their not very tender mercy if you dare.
As much as you and yours hate The Police, The Police will be who you
scream for to save you.

Congratulate yourselves on making The Police go away...

You and yours really need to re-evaluate who you designate as your
enemy in these strange and interesting times.

You scream and cry for checks on The Police to been seen as
"Doing Something" because you're too afraid of the dead-end,
throw-away, willfully and joyously ignorant death cultists who
are responsible for more mothers tears flowing in the gutters
of this city than the whole of The Chicago Police Department
from 1855 until now.

So... You "think" this website should come down eh?

You thought wrong.
You and yours are the truly virulent haters you suppose
Policemen to be.

Why don't you rattle-minds actually STUDY the Bill of Rights
before you pout and cry about someone daring to have an
expressed opinion you don't happen to agree with.

The mere fact that Policemen have a place to more or less
freely express their thoughts and opinions, really does
bother you, doesn't it?

WHOOO!

You should hear Mistuh & Missus fo' conuh (and others) "express their
feelin's" at da Po-leece at any and ALL crime and incident scenes.

Now what?

You're gonna get a "cee-arrah numbah"
because a "mean, insensitive and racist" cop set your

There are more than a few bad politicians too. There are more than a few bad teachers working in chicagoland classrooms as we speak sexually preying on young children. There's always a new article or 2 every month about teachers sexually assaulting a student but its never front page shit. This is the kind of shit that leads to mass murderers and demented serial killers but they don't want to make educators look bad so they bury the story on page 8. I'm sure you aren't worried about being bothered by the police, I would say you sleep good at night not worrying about cops coming through your door so spare the bad apples bullshit.

re: 7/08/2015 07:19:00 PM / Chicago is a "officially" a Sanctuary City for ILLEGALS. As they might say on Independence Blvd, that's fucked up ... a DAMN shame.

Your statement is blatantly false. There was little "outrage" when this happened. I only remember cops being appalled. The video is not the same exact topic but just an illustration. If you think Bubba and nem with his pick 'em truck don't celebrate defeating police one on one...or liberal white communist types, you are outta your mind.

007 generally has 50-60 police cars patrolling at night. 022 has less than 10 cars. Fact. 016 barely has more than 022 does. Disgraceful how they distribute police resources and waste the money of the taxpayers.

To all those that have commented, thank you for displaying the racism I've mentioned. Mr. Jackson is a great man doing great things for our cause but yet you attack him. You see a black man doing good for his people and immediately try to degrade what he is doing. I've made him aware of this blog. Father Pfleger is also in agreement. It is time these outlets are shut down. We have struggled too long and the time is now ours. We shall petition Supt. McCarthy to investigate this source.

Oh, that's right, black people.

Ooooooh, *This Website 'needs' to come down* yeah, right. You're a good little Fascist aren't you.

Well, tell ya what, since you work for the Rev Race-baiter's main extortion scam why don't you find a 5th Grader from a Private School and have him read the U.S. Constitution & Bill of Rights to you....and SLOWLY, so you 'get it'.

ps: How's Jesse's Love Child? Is 'the good rev' paying anything for support?

Anyone that crosses an other countries border illegally is an ILLEGAL ALIEN, not an undocumented immigrant. So by simply comitting that act an ILLEGAL ALIEN becomes a criminal the moment he sets foot in this country. So stop with the terms used by the left to sugar coat and minimize what these ILLEGAL ALIENS are.

SO did you notice what the Mayor of Baltimore just did? After letting the rioters have a free hand and letting her SA blame her cops, there's a spike in violence. Instead of working to a solution, she threw Batts under the bus. If I was Batts, I'd take my hat and say Thank You. Outside, I'd ask my 'former' staff who would like to go back to California with me....


He was part of the problem too. Never spoke up for his officers, let others out on the front lines get pelted with rocks - bottles etc. He threw his cops under the bus long before he got thrown under the bus. I hope he thinks about that everyday. If you going to go down - AtLEAST go down backing your principals and beliefs - oh yeah, and your own officers. And as far as his future, I wouldn't hire him to run mall security.

The irony of a push rainbow associate crying racism is off the charts.
Your organization does "OUR" people far more harm than good.
Now,go give Jesse, His Cheated On His Wife, out of wedlock child, Jesse Jr, Jr's soon to be jailed wife, and Jr's Indian side-chick, some more of your money.

I bet the " hymies " of New York want Jackson and Push to come down. Also the President who almost had his balls cut off by Jackson for not being black enough would like to see Jackson come down. I saw photos of Jackson sitting with the Main 21 of the Stones all fanning stacks of 100 bills. Lots of stories in his past. As a matter of fact an entire book written about Jackson's schemes .

You're in good company with Pol Pot, Nicolai Ceaucescu, Josef Stalin, Chairman Mao and all North Korean leaders. They also favor(ed) persecution of journalism and concealing truth in order to strengthen their political message.

First of all, they are not called "illegals". The correct term is undocumented.

No, the correct term IS illegals.

Oh, for Heaven's sake; the cops and citizens on this blog are not racist. It is not the race of any people that is despised, it is the CULTURE that is despised.

Put on your thinking cap for a second (I know it hurts to think, but please try). Do you really think a culture that promotes gang violence, violence towards police, having indiscriminate sex with whomever, and having children that grow up with no opportunities, and probably no father, is a good thing for that community? Do you not ask yourself "Hey, why doesn't Rainbow Push promote healthy living, the return of the single family and harsh sentences for those who don't follow the law?" There is a simple reason; money. The poverty pimps make a great deal of money off of their fellow men and women, at their expense. Still proud to work for such an organization?

"Life is hard. It's even harder when you're stupid." Ergo, don't be stupid.

We eagerly await your response to the obvious things that we have pointed out to you.

I too, found this Blog by accident.

I've lived in and around Chicago since 1981. SSC is hands-down the best and most viable news source I've ever seen here. If you believe the Democrat propaganda put out by the Sun Times, Tribune, and local TV stations, you are a clueless dolt.

Also, America is getting sick of chowderheads playing the Race Card. Word.
