Oh Poor Babies

  • Fearing for the safety of its employees, Comcast canceled six appointments on Chicago's South Side Wednesday due to "heightened potential [for] violence" in the area, a company spokesman confirmed Wednesday.

    A day after holding 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee's funeral, St. Sabina Church needed some help with its Internet connection — and was turned away because of neighborhood violence.

    Outspoken anti-violence activist the Rev. Michael Pfleger shared his outrage about Comcast on Facebook Wednesday, writing:

    "A Supervisor at Comcast just informed us that they couldn't send their technician to repair our internet service today because our area has too much violence.....ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????? Oh Hell No!!!!!!!"
Oh hell yes Dumbass. You can't force a company to send employees into harms way, and we can only imagine the faux outrage Pfleger would be spouting if Comcast charged an additional "safety fee" of $100 to all it's Englewood customers calling for service, the proceeds of which would pay for an individually armed off-duty copper to escort the technician. That would be hilarious...and well deserved. Sorry about the many paying for the sins of the few, but that's the situation on the ground.

The right to a court-appointed attorney. You have the right to sing the blues. You have the right to cable TV. You have the right to sublet. You have the right to paint the walls. No loud colors. "

Had a guy out at my place to work on the chimney last year. On his way, while getting on the Dan ryan, a shit head walked up to the rear of his work van as he waited at a light and opened the rear door. My guy yelled at him and the jagoff walked away leaving the door wide open. He exits and walks to the back to close the door and the shit head starts yelling shit back. He gave him a fuck you and goes to return inside to drive away and about ten shitbags waiting at the bus stop, who witnessed the whole situation, start yelling shit threatening him. He gave them the finger and drove off. Real nice kid too and was probably a few seconds away from getting robbed, jumped or worse just out trying to make a living. After hearing a few more stories I told him to get a concealed carry

Wow, what an idea. Pay all utility workers, not just Comcast, but Com Ed, Peoples Gas and everyone else extra to work in the war zones of Chiraq.

There was even an idea floated years ago, before VRI, of paying cops extra to work in those districts but that never went when anywhere. Just like the idea to pay a real shift differential instead of the "Duty Availability" allowance. What to see some real flaming just propose that. FOP always hated that idea because FOP is run by people who haven't seen a police station at night in twenty years.

I'm not sure there is truly a threat within St. Sabina's in the middle of the afternoon to the cable guy. If there was then Comcast wouldn't have sent the technician out only a couple of hours after Fleger's Facebook post. I'm aware everyone was warned about the gang war going on there (where isn't it in this sh*tty these days?) and this and that, but who exactly is trying to run into the church to cap the Comcast tech as he's huddled under a desk resetting a wireless router with his ass crack hanging out at 11AM?

Once a baby sparrow fell out of it's nest and Zogg caught it just before it crashed into the ground. Then he placed it back in it's nest and tipped the little guy out a $20, because it was raining ya know.

11/12/2015 11:40:00 AM

You obviously weren't really there because you left out a key detail... the $20 Zogg had tipped the sparrow was in the form of Sacajawea gold $1 coins neatly bundled into a small black leather sack with the drawstring Zogg closed up tightly for the bird to prevent a spillage of coins. Ever since the satchel was left behind with a touch of Zogg on it within that nest, an early Spring has sprung within a 50' radius of that individual tree. Birds there are chirping there more so now than they were back in April. If you're not going to tell the story correctly please don't tell it at all.

Speaking of Comcast, they are a fucking joke of a company. My internet went down on July 30, 2015 and they told me the technician would be at my home on August 1st between 9 AM and 1 PM. He never came. I called them and they told me don't worry he will be there by 5 PM. He never came. Then we made an appointment or August 4 and they never came and then for August 7 they missed that appointment too.

I saw a comcast truck and I stopped and talked to that guy. I asked him if he could fix my cable and he told me he has several prior appointments and if he finishes early he will stop by. He stopped by and fixed my internet issue. The next month I got my bill and it was $210 for some sort of repair.

I then find out that most of their technicians are contractors and they are convicted felons. If they do a repair they can slap any fee they can come up with and you are stuck. Plus they only go to appointments that pay them more money. For simple fixes they don't get paid so they won't show up.

Fuck Comcast. I have At&T and they have their own technicians on their own payroll.

Sorry..off topic. I have to get this opinion off my chest. The City is setting themselves up for a major manpower shortage for years to come. We are already way below the number we should have and from what I've been told there will be 1000 or more officers retiring that were hired in the mid 80's. I appreciate the recent hiring over the last few years, but I would like to point out a problem that will eventually bite the city in the ass and create the lowest manpower in history. The city has been overwhelmingly hiring officers in their mid to late 30's. This is a major problem because the city and the taxpayer will only benefit from these officers for a short period of time before they retire. These officers are more likely to be injured, have health problems, and retire after only serving for a short period of time. I am not saying that there are not good candidates in their 30's. However, there seems to be a major drop in the hiring of young men and women in their 20's who will benefit the department for a longer period of time. No offense, I am in my late 30's now and I know that I can't always keep up with the 20 year olds. This is a young persons job! It disappoints me to think of all the 23 to 25 year olds that want to be the police but got passed over and are living in their parents basement. I feel as though the numbers are being temporarily beefed up by new hires that the city knows will never collect a full pension. I also believe these officers are being used to pay into the pension that they will get very little of. Where is the FOP on this?

An idea. Exempt on duty service technicians from the restrictions of the Concealed Carry Law. If Phlager wants a Comcast service call he may have to accept the fact that the tech may be discreetly armed for his/her protection.

If Phlager doesn't like it ask who is he afraid of, the technician or the mope luring in the alley who runs from the police.

Also, does Pflager have CPD bodyguards? He did on earlier events. Get some photos and try to pick them out.

(OT) Emanuel: Video of Laquan McDonald shooting by police shouldn't be released now

Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Friday stuck by his position that it's not "the appropriate time" to release a video of a white Chicago police officer fatally shooting an African-American teen, citing an ongoing federal investigation into the 2014 incident.

The mayor's comments came ahead of a hearing next week in Cook County court over whether the police car dashboard camera video of the fatal shooting of Laquan McDonald should be released to the public.

"You have, obviously, an investigation," Emanuel said Friday at an unrelated event at Navy Pier. "And you never would release a video while that investigation is going on. At the appropriate time, the appropriate entities and how that video gets to be public will be handled."

"There's an appropriate way to handle when videos become public, and that procedure will be followed," he added.

City Corporation Counsel Stephen Patton has told aldermen the video shows an officer opening fire on McDonald as the 17-year-old walked along Pulaski Road in the Archer Heights neighborhood last October, striking him 16 times and killing him. The City Council approved a $5 million settlement for McDonald's family in April, with Patton saying the dashboard camera images of the incident were crucial to the city's decision to settle the case before a federal lawsuit was filed.

McDonald, who had PCP in his system, was behaving erratically and refusing police commands to drop a 4-inch folding knife. The police union has maintained the officer fired in fear of his life because the teen lunged at him and his partner with the knife.

HMM Mayor is scared, it must be real bad! If your a betting person with the anti-police environment,and media spin you can bet the crook county judge will release it!

If this happens advice to my brothers and sisters in Blue, now like today check your weapon strip it down, oil it make sure ammo is fresh, does your helmet fit? do you have proper face shield? Is your mace fresh? Your vest fitted properly? Check your equipment make sure car is fueled, make sure your family knows what to do in case of "emergency!" Praying nothing happens but with the media here looking to be on world news,and possibly get a better position all bets are off! Get your news from SCC where the echoes can be heard!! God Bless CPD and officers everywhere, protect each other and police families!!

What are you talking about? Where do you get the crap you are writing. Starting in 2013, the last police test the CPD allowed 18 year olds to take the test so when they turned 21 they could be hired. CPD also lowered the starting age from 25 to 21,

He then dumped her in a garbage can and wheeled her a couple of blocks away.. The fool used his own garbage can with his address on it. Dicks went to his house and discovered the crime scene in basement. But it's racist to be concerned for your safety in savage land right. It's not racism.....

I'm not sure there is truly a threat within St. Sabina's in the middle of the afternoon to the cable guy. If there was then Comcast wouldn't have sent the technician out only a couple of hours after Fleger's Facebook post. I'm aware everyone was warned about the gang war going on there (where isn't it in this sh*tty these days?) and this and that, but who exactly is trying to run into the church to cap the Comcast tech as he's huddled under a desk resetting a wireless router with his ass crack hanging out at 11AM?

I don't think they teleport their trucks or technicians to the service site.
They actually have to drive through the warring territory and they have to park the vehicle with tools and tech inside it.
And then, there's the part about walking alone, to and from the truck...

Maybe Comcast shouldn't cash the checks of people in those areas.

"Sorry..off topic. I have to get this opinion off my chest. The City is setting themselves up for a major manpower shortage for years to come. We are already way below the number we should have and from what I've been told there will be 1000 or more officers retiring that were hired in the mid 80's. I appreciate the recent hiring over the last few years, but I would like to point out a problem that will eventually bite the city in the ass and create the lowest manpower in history. The city has been overwhelmingly hiring officers in their mid to late 30's. This is a major problem because the city and the taxpayer will only benefit from these officers for a short period of time before they retire. These officers are more likely to be injured, have health problems, and retire after only serving for a short period of time. I am not saying that there are not good candidates in their 30's. However, there seems to be a major drop in the hiring of young men and women in their 20's who will benefit the department for a longer period of time. No offense, I am in my late 30's now and I know that I can't always keep up with the 20 year olds. This is a young persons job! It disappoints me to think of all the 23 to 25 year olds that want to be the police but got passed over and are living in their parents basement. I feel as though the numbers are being temporarily beefed up by new hires that the city knows will never collect a full pension. I also believe these officers are being used to pay into the pension that they will get very little of. Where is the FOP on this?"

I disagree.. I graduated the academy early this year and most people in my class/academy were in their early to mid-20's.

The reason the City is hiring older coppers is that they don't want the hard charging "young, dumb, full of c#m, all piss and vinegar" young bucks.

Those guys chase people. They catch those people. When the suspect fights, they defend themselves. Which leads to lawsuits and cash payout.

So it is cheaper for the City to just let the criminal get away, send in the old cop who will scratch out a quick report and then go get coffee.

Watching fox world news now France is under terrorist attacks now the French president is calling it terrorist attacks but Obama comes on and will not call it terrorism why not? France just announced closing all borders guess Trump is correct again "without borders you have no country we need to close our borders immediately hunt invaders throw them out!

11/13/2015 05:01:00 PM

No, you don't get to write your own version of history. In his speech tonight, Obama referred to what happened in Paris as "terrorism" and called the perpetrators "terrorists". There's plenty that's true that you can criticize him for, but don't spread lies.

I used to work for a company called Fitness Warehouse delivering treadmills and such. One day while on the south side, (i know, but this is a true story), me and my partner were stopped at a stop sign. A fine upstanding youth starts mope walking in front of the truck...pants hanging down off his ass, stops and just looks at us. My partner, who was from south Texas, yells out the window,"Pull up your pants, you could walk faster." Mope lifts up his over sized T-shirt revealing a handgun tucked into the waist band of his Tommy Hilfiger underwear and says,"I ain't in no hurry mother fucker."

The city cannot afford to be that selective. Do you have any idea how many candidates fail the power test and drug test? The percentages are shocking. Then the polygraph test. If they call up 1,000 candidates called for the first power test, they are lucky to have 400 left after the power and drug test. The failure and drop out rate are amazing. The city wanted to hire large classes this fall. The last class was 49 recruits. The goal was 75 recruits. They plan to hire one more class in December. The system is slow but hard to find qualified candidates. They have used up almost all of the military veterans from the last test. The current recruit class have a majority of recruits under 30 years old. Especially around 22 years old. The city can only hire those that apply for the job and are qualified. BTW, the department is set up not to make crime reports and kill crime. Stay in your box and write contact cards and ANOV's.

Com Ed hires off duty/retired police for security at yards with construction work and escorting work crews & shut off service trucks. In return, Com Ed won't let their repair crews have CCW on their property/fleet. The security firm is American Heritage out of Alsip. $19@hour w/mileage and must have current or retired peace officer ID.

To 11/13/15 3:41pm, My response! First...tough guy, I do plenty of work, respond to nearly every call, back up everyone, and am still proactive in these times. I also help new guys as much as possible. Second, if you think that you in your 50's are more physically capable than a guy in his 20's....you are sipping some real strong kool aid. Third, my information is coming from a check of seniority on rosters where new officers have been assigned, and it clearly shows an overwhelming number of officers who are 35+ with less than 3 years on. But since you want to make it a personal, come tell those things to me in person on midnites in 004, I'd love to hear from you. Sincerely KG in 004 1st watch. Look forward to hearing from you.

There's a book I found on Pfather Pfaker called "Radical Disciple: Father Pfleger, St. Sabina Church, and the Fight for Social Justice" by one Robert McClory. I had to stop in the middle to go to the NRA website and sign up for a lifetime membership.
