Congratulations Chicago

  • A new report declares an area of Chicago as “America’s Mass-Shooting Capital” and described it as more dangerous to live in than some of the world’s most murderous countries, according to a new report.

    West Garfield Park, which has a population of 18,000, saw 21 murders in 2014, according to The Daily Beast’s report. This makes the area’s homicide rate 116 per 100,000 people.

    Honduras -- the country that leads the world in homicides -- has a homicide rate of 90, according to figures from the United Nations.
Of course, you can spin the stats a hundred different ways, but still. West Garfield Park is worse than Honduras? And this year, more people probably moved out, and the homicides are at 38, so the rate is only getting worse.

Time to burn it to the ground and start over.

Woman shot dead after GPS app takes wrong turn into gang controlled favela

6 Oct. 2015

"A businesswoman was shot dead after a mobile GPS app led her to take a wrong turn into a gang-controlled favela in Rio de Janeiro.

"Regina Murmura, 70, and husband Francisco, 69, had been reportedly attempting to visit a beach in Niteroi, Rio – when they accidentally took a wrong turn into the Carumujo favela on Saturday after using navigation app Waze.

"They were led to the Rua Quintino Bocauiva area of the favela where they were shot at by drug traffickers – with pictures taken in the aftermath of the incident showing the couple’s bullet riddled Citroen.

"Mr Murmura rushed his wife of 50 years to a nearby hospital, but she died soon after arriving at a nearby hospital.

"Speaking to reporters at the cemetery where his wife is buried, he tragically recalled: ‘When I got out, and the guy came with a gun, the best thing he could have done, to me,would have been to put me out and end it.’

"It is believed that the assailants were working under the command of Rodrigo da Silva Rodrigues – one of the most notorious and feared drug lords in the city.

"Military police colonel Fernando Salema said: ‘It was cowardly.

‘"They fired [more than 20 rounds] even though they knew were an elderly couple. The gentleman was very confused. He even said that he got out of the car and received a rifle butt."

Uh Dude,
Might be a small problem there Sparky,

Unless you plan to burn up the 18,000 people living there, West Garfield Park's denizens will merely move their culture and their fun and games to new pastures. Say Hello! to your new neighbors!

How many of them are likely to be re-settled in your neighborhood on the taxpayer dime? After all, that would be one way to "solve" Chicago's RAAAACIST Segregation Problem.

Your jobs are easy and thousands of people are lined up to

And spinning statistics it is! The population of Hondorus is a little over 8 million. You took the worst pocket in the U.S. and compared it to the whole country of Honduras. There are pockets in Honduras that have a homicide rate many times that of the pocket in cf Chicago that you chose. Using your methodology, my village of 378 people has the highest murder rate in the country. We had one murder, where a guy killed his wife. But, scale that up to a rate per 100.000 people and it blows the roof off of the murder rate.

Also, even in big cities, if the crime stays in its pockets (think cancer) it is not really bad until it metaticizes all,over the place and affects the entire city.

'Black Lives' leader defends looting in Yale lecture

October 08, 2015

"Activist DeRay McKesson recently taught as a guest lecturer at Yale Divinity School in which one the readings was an article titled, "In Defense of Looting." (Yale.edu)

"The “Black Lives Matter” leader who landed a teaching gig at Yale University delivered a lecture this week on the historical merits of looting as a form of protest, backing up his lesson with required reading that puts modern-day marauders on par with the patriots behind the Boston Tea Party.

"DeRay McKesson, who was hired by the Ivy League institution’s divinity school to lecture for two days on "Transformational Leadership in the #BlackLivesMatter Movement," had students read an essay written at the height of the rioting and looting that plagued the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson just over a year ago after a white police officer shot and killed a black man.

“The mystifying ideological claim that looting is violent and non-political is one that has been carefully produced by the ruling class because it is precisely the violent maintenance of property which is both the basis and end of their power,” reads the August, 2014 post from the literary magazine “The New Inquiry” entitled “In Defense of Looting.” “On a less abstract level there is a practical and tactical benefit to looting. Whenever people worry about looting, there is an implicit sense that the looter must necessarily be acting selfishly, ‘opportunistically,’ and in excess.”

"McKesson appears to have veered off of his syllabus for the lesson, which prompted some critics to offer a reminder that looting does indeed have innocent victims.

“There is zero justification for stealing private property and destroying a family’s livelihood – which is what occurred countless times in Ferguson, Baltimore, and elsewhere – but that’s apparently what passes as an example of ‘transformational leadership’ at the Yale Divinity School,” said Kyle Olson, founder of EAGnews.org, a blog that focuses on education reform."

Dear SCC, I'm not a police officer, I'm just a regular citizen, upset with the lies we have enough police employees. Upset that Rahm is continually pointing the finger at some other reason for not hiring enough officers. Upset that my commander in my district says "we have enough officers employed here" (does he REALLY believe that?). Upset that I and my neighbors are living with property crime - no were not having shootings - but the property crime, burglaries, and robberies are out of control. Please expose some light on the bullshit games Emmanuel and McCarthy are playing.

Is this shell game still going on?

What do you expect? Police demoralized, police hiring down how many? 4,000? An FOP president collecting a monumental salary and collecting disability payments how does that work?

$$$$

Angelo is costing fop/us about 120K a year less than Dougherty/Shields/Donahue. Dean took a 40K pay cut and the field reps took 30K less than the city-wide guys did. Plus Angelo deducts his disability check from his fop shortened salary.

Maybe if YOU showed up for union meetings or pension board meetings you would know this. But maybe you already do and just post bullshit to stir the pot.

The more-structured gang culture of the ’80s and ’90s “would make a young person more conscious of what they were doing,” Ali told The Daily Beast. “Now, if you go shoot up a McDonald’s and a child dies, nine times out of 10 people are gonna say, ‘You a savage, you go hard.’”

AP Investigation: Olympic teams to swim, boat in Rio's filth

Jul. 30, 2015 2:01 PM EDT

"RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Athletes in next year's Summer Olympics here will be swimming and boating in waters so contaminated with human feces that they risk becoming violently ill and unable to compete in the games...

"An AP analysis of water quality revealed dangerously high levels of viruses and bacteria from human sewage in Olympic and Paralympic venues — results that alarmed international experts and dismayed competitors training in Rio, some of whom have already fallen ill with fevers, vomiting and diarrhea.

"Brazilian officials have assured that the water will be safe...

"Extreme water pollution is common in Brazil, where the majority of sewage is not treated. Raw waste runs through open-air ditches to streams and rivers that feed the Olympic water sites.

"Despite decades of official pledges to clean up the mess, the stench of raw sewage still greets travelers touching down at Rio's international airport. Prime beaches are deserted because the surf is thick with putrid sludge, and periodic die-offs leave the Olympic lake, Rodrigo de Freitas, littered with rotting fish.

"What you have there is basically raw sewage," said John Griffith, a marine biologist..."

I don't want to be a KILL JOY, but the murder rates everyone are talking about aren't shit. All you new police and everyone else, go look at what was going on in 1974. I'm part of the 1974 stats, shot in Nov 1974 and many other officers lost their lives and were wounded during that time period. The only thing I see different, the police are on a short leash and that's not good.

She also made same Lt get a cr# on a car after they got in fender bender after a chase.

Ordered a Lt. To SPAR a Sergeant because hard head m/fer of the minute
shot the shit out of hard head m/fer of the day?

In whose book of Law Enforcement management and leadership
is this kind of shit ok?

None that we or any of our esteemed subject matter experts emeriti have read.

Motherfuckers don't do anything all damned day but eat, sleep, shit, fight, get high,
fuck, steal and in general, fuck shit up/break shit on top of killing the fucking grass
where ever they set foot...

In addition to discharging lead and copper missiles of opportunity in each other's asses?

Barb West is THE outlier when it comes down being a special kind of stupid
and incompetent.

There have been numerous reports of her hiding in the car
And lobbing in critiques instead of getting off her ass and
demonstrating her obviously ample, piled high and deep,
Police skills.

Make us Superintendent...
We'll round up all these wretched stupid-visors, shove them
on buses and have them transported to Bulk Storage on 39th,
take their phones and lock them inside with nobody to supervise,
threaten, SPAR and C/R but each other and the rats...

This silly shit is the "creative tension" that corporatists like Rahm
and oafs like McCarthy embrace.

Leadership has truly become a fucking menace on this job.

Your full of shit. Yes the by-law change does not take effect until the next term starts but they are voluntarily taking the lower salary. The budget still allots for the higher city-wide team salary structure. But present board takes a lower salary.
