Nice Double Standard Tribune

An interesting point brought to our attention by a reader. This story appeared in the Tribune on 24 November:
  • A man Chicago police detectives consider to be a person of interest in the slaying of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee is free on $1 million bail following an arrest last week on a gun charge, according to court records.

    The man, 27, was arrested with two handguns on Nov. 16 after leaving a hotel in southwest suburban Oak Lawn, authorities said. Chicago police detectives received a tip that he was in possession of guns at the hotel. The man is a convicted felon who by law cannot possess firearms, according to court records.

    Records show he was released on bail on Friday. According to a law enforcement source familiar with the investigation, the man’s girlfriend, who recently received a huge settlement in a civil lawsuit against a Chicago hospital, put up $100,000 for his release.

    The man was also questioned last week about Tyshawn’s death during his arrest, sources have said, but never charged in the slaying. He had also been questioned on Nov. 4 at Area South police headquarters about the killing before being released at that time, sources have said.

    The Tribune is not naming the man because he hasn't been charged in Tyshawn's killing.
But he had been charged with two counts of "UUW by Felon," a pretty serious charge in every jurisdiction except Cook County. The Tribune refused to name him at all, despite the charges and bail.

Contrast that with the recently indicted officer, whose name was thrown out there by reporters and published for weeks, even months leading up to the indictment.

Anyone care to explain?

The 9 year old boy is the great grandson of the infamous Fluky Stokes. The grand daddy is Willie the Wimp Stokes who was buried in the cadillac coffin. The daddy is Pierre Stokes, who refuses to cooperate with the police. What a family.

The reason why is a very simple one SCC...

The pant shitting cowardly hypocrites who make up
local media, adamantly refused to name this "usual
suspect" who is involved the highly ritualized democrat-
controlled urban center dance of death & destruction
because they don't want him or his affiliated litter-mates
invading their safe, leafy suburbs to show displeasure
by spraying them, their loved ones, their cars and homes
with a shower of Pb jacketed Cu or otherwise vandalizing
their vehicles/jiggling their door knobs such as what happened
In MG overnight.

You see...
It's fun and easy to fuck-with and target Policemen because
they're proscribed from justifiably hitting back hard in their own
self defense.

Especially in this climate...
The "optics" are now considered bad if a
Policeman even dares to actively apply the "reasonable
man" standard to protect self, home and property
from harm.

Other instances notwithstanding...

But just you wait.
M/Fers are bold and empowered.
Some poor copper will be off duty/
with their family and will be confronted
by some of these rebels without pause.

"Why didn't you RETREAT, officer?"

Assholes congratulating themselves over
backing The Police into a corner...

The total lack of impulse control and conflict
resolution skill in the tribal no-go-zones of
Chicago's West and South sides is contributory
to the spiraling butcher's bill.

They say they're sick and tired of being "targeted"
by The Police but they revel in doing the dance of death
with each other.

Who leads and who follows?
Has there ever before in history been
a group of people so riddled with such
self loathing that they take a such an open and perverse
joy in permanently closing each other's eyes?

Who the fuck is crazier?
The Policeman who spends
one third to one half (or more) of his
shortened-already life trying to
bring some some semblance
of law, order and safety (however
imperfectly) to these
wretched areas?

Or is it the hysteria and psychosis afflicted people,
folks, their aiders, abettors and others only interested
in stirring the flaming pot of perpetual aggrievement who are
actually the crazy ones?

Speak of the devil and he enters.
Re-broadcast of the 10 o'clock news
and just a micro-blurb @ the 16 year old
M/1 who got walked-up on by two other
M/1's and executed just steps from his home.

"The Police are the problem..."

The War on The Police and Policing burns hot and unabated.

Simple. The Tribune likes felons carrying guns and better than they like the police.

Well, at least the girlfriend wasted $100k on bail money, since he's now been arrested for the Lee murder.

From a troll reader: Tyshawn who? What you talkin about Willis? The judge, if she is any kind of Cook County Judge should know by now we as an electorate have moved on. So go toss felony agg batt charges against dude for the good of we citizens. Only Anita is toast. It is because of the party, not because of her lack of ability or judicial character either. She simply has become a liability to the pary. I will look for her at Daley Center doing insurance pltf cases. Welcome to the working world Anita. Oh, that is an ambulance going around the corner. You are up.

Easily explained, because we don't stand up for ourselves. The Flop is next to useless. We supposedly can't strike. Although the CFD did and the world didn't come to an end. We keep working, many aggressively, even after continiously being stomped into the ground. And we're used as punching bags without any of the rights of the common man. Cop is battered by "poet" charges dropped? The writing is on the wall. Never have I seen such a bunch of spinless loosers as I have after that display of total disrespect and we will keep getting kicked into the dirt for that false idea of job security and steady pay check. Sellouts, everyone of us. Step up and get in line for your next flogging. No one is immune to the media's wrath, not even the clouted.

If U are even stepping towards an act considered striking U'r fired for cause. I think the people on the job 45 years of age and younger have the balls, grit, and brains to actually maximize Our position in a "Collective Bargaining Unit." As long as we listen to geezers time after time with little to no reason to push The FOP 7 to an actual unit that helps Chicago Cops. That place has been a JOKE for awhile now. I have 15 years and The FOP has been screwed so bad during the negotiations I had to watch. We don't pick up bodies. Whee Hew, let's throw some high fives!
We deserve better
