Return This Guy's Gun

  • John Hendricks recalls a split second between impulse and action before he took aim and shot Everardo Custodio just before midnight on April 17 after Custodio opened fire on a group in Logan Square.

    Hendricks was not charged for shooting the 23-year-old because he had a concealed carry gun license and was determined to have acted in self-defense. But he said he was questioned for hours by detectives after the shooting and, seven months later, hasn't gotten his Springfield Armory .45 back from authorities.
We get coppers's guns back to them in short order. But this guy is waiting seven months. He's way more patient than we'd ever be, especially in the face of this behavior:
  • Police have yet to return his firearm and are not returning his calls, he said.

    Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said an investigation into the gun was ongoing and that he did not know when it would be complete.

    He declined to comment on the specifics but said such investigations can include ballistic testing, trace comparison and other means of finding out if a firearm was involved in other incidents.
Yeah, that takes the first day. And computers have made so much of this pretty routine. No one thinks this guy was running around, lighting up the south side, and sticking up dope boys. Give us a fucking break. It's his gun, he did nothing wrong, return his phone calls, give him a Good Citizen certificate, maybe a box of ammo, and close the books. Stop being asshats for a political machine that doesn't love you and a 9-fingered dwarf who doesn't respect you. You serve the citizens.

Sounds about right. I have been in (3) department shootings. 2 of the 3 my gun was kept for over 5 months. There is no rush any longer SCC. Called and got the same lack of responses. Only mine also included "you have a loaner, what's the big deal " from the FOP They treat us just like the rest of the 2nd class citizens in this state.

He might never. "Authorities" in this town have a long-standing bad habit of being real a___holes about this when it comes to civilians -- even when it comes to returning stolen weapons that were recovered. Guy had several sporting rifles taken from his locked car trunk out at a gun show, and they turned up in the jets here. It was "Want 'em back, sue us."

Like getting something nasty away from the dog. "Come on, Baby. Give over."

"Rrrr."

"We get coppers's guns back to them in short order."

Yup, now that is true.

HE DID NOTHING WRONG! 7 months and you still don't know if it was used in a crime? WTF? Are they looking at ballistics results manually now? No database? No Internet? This "victim" needs to contact the NRA now! I'll be forwarding them a link to this info myself.

I really thought the CPD had a process in place to take care of a law abiding citizen involved in a shooting. I'm not the police, but during a domestic with my now ex-wife, the police were called and she wanted me out of the house. You know, the usual he's threatening me and all that non-sense. One of the first things the officer ask, is there a gun(s) in the house. I told the officers an old 22 rifle was in a box up in the attic buried with Christmas decorations. He made me go up into the attic and dig it out. They took the single shot 22 rifle I had when I was a kid and inventoried it. It's been two years, no domestic violence charges, and not even an arrest in my history. Every time I call and try to find out how I can get my rifle back, I'm told their back logged and the process is not complete. Monday, I'm hiring an Attorney to get this 22 rifle back. It's been two years and now its the principle of the thing. I want to pass the rifle to my son any I feel my rights are being violated.

– in Paris (or almost anywhere in Europe right now, except Norway), Hendricks would be hailed as a hero. A statute would be erected and he would have been awarded a Medal of Honor within a week. But here in Ville Sanctuaire señor el'Custodio will be out of el' custodial of the CrookCo Jail anti-brown policy before Hendricks sees that XD 45, if ever at all.

OT --

TOP TERROR THREAT LEVEL -- BRUSSELS SHUTS DOWN

Fox News -- "The terrorism alert for Brussels was raised to Level 4, which indicates a “serious and immediate threat.”

Prime Minister Charles Michel said the decision to raise the alert level was taken "based on quite precise information about the risk of an attack like the one that happened in Paris...where several individuals with arms and explosives launch actions, perhaps even in several places at the same time."

Authorities across Europe, the Middle East and Washington are trying to determine how a network of French and Belgian nationalists with links to Islamic extremists in Syria plotted and carried out the deadliest violence in France since World War II – and how many may still be on the loose.

Brussels was home to the suspected organizer of the Nov. 13 terror attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, and Belgium has filed charges of “participation in terrorist attacks and participation in the activities of a terrorist organization” against three suspects relating to the Paris attacks.

"Heavily armed police and soldiers patrolled key intersections of the Belgian capital Saturday morning, a city of more than 1 million that is home to the headquarters of the European Union, the NATO alliance and officers of many multinational corporations. Residents were recommended to avoid gatherings, train stations, airports and commercial districts. Service was halted on the Brussels Metro, as well as on streetcar lines that run underground, and residents were urged to stay indoors..."

The best way for this fellow to get his gun back is to file a lawsuit against the city naming McFuckstick, 9 fingers, and the officer who inventoried his pistol for the cost of the pistol along with the lawyers fees which should amount to at least 5 times the value of the pistol and let a judge determine whether the city is purposely refusing to return the firearm. That should light a fire under someones ass.

Officer involved in a controversial shooting and is hammered before the investigation is finished. Who is going to riot, the police? Nope. We know there is a process that will play out.

Another unit that does not answer phones. Did you miss the post for this unit? again clouted spot with little over-site.
Comp stat? They can also run the fed computer but guess what they never answer the phone if patrol runs up on a case.

The exempts do not want to do their jobs and sign weapons back typical.

Sounds about right. I have been in (3) department shootings. 2 of the 3 my gun was kept for over 5 months. There is no rush any longer SCC. Called and got the same lack of responses. Only mine also included "you have a loaner, what's the big deal " from the FOP They treat us just like the rest of the 2nd class citizens in this state.

What is the big deal? You do have a loaner.

More reasons to mention your "shootings" to co-workers who roll thier eyes? Yeah, that's it.

From a VERY good source: officer to be indicted Monday and video to be released Tuesday. Batten down the hatches, folks. Enjoy your weekend if you're RDO cuz you'll probably be at work a few days straight if it's anything like Ferguson.

Why don't you keep your mouth shut?

Everyone already knows about this. Keep his mouth shut indeed! You dummy.

The current racial strife in the country has made poster children of thugs in situations based on a false narrative. This could actually be a heinous crime by us, that gets swallowed up by the Black Lives Matter crap that the country has frankly grown tired of. It's unfortunate and a sad state of affairs. If it is as bad as it sounds,indict him and let the courts sort out the facts. In a day and age where heads are chopped off and bldgs blown up this seems so very stupid.

100% in agreement, we have to worry about terrorism, the president and others allowing all the illegal invaders into this once great country, then you see this once great city in total dentition but now is majority muslims, 5 times a day speakers blaring calling to prayer! Nice Polish productive area at 1 time now this! Trump again is correct close the borders stop the madness!

the black lies matter crew you can bet is coming up here by the busloads, being funded by billionaire liberal causes to cause and add to mayhem and destruction, wonder how well the shopping season in Chicago will go? Tax revenues down, merchants on the cusp of surviving gone, vacant stores (Don't worry though more liquor stores will open selling stale bread,and orange pop and of course cheetos, not an insult a reality), this is total inasanity will anyone elected stop this??

Their are some real assholes in the CPD, just like any organization. Generally, they are the paper pushers.

About three years ago, I had my brand new cellphone lifted in 18 at a Coffee shop.

They caught the guy a few weeks later lifting phones at the Starbucks around the corner.

The investigating officer or det. on my case made it his business to drop his card off at the shop my phone was lifted from and he told the staff they caught the guy. I don't know why nobody from CPD notified me. Anyway, next time I'm in the coffee shop, the person behind the
Counter says, "Hey aren't you the guy who had your phone lifted by the guy who was in here pushing Streetwise?" I replied, "Yes". He said, "They caught the guy at Starbucks. He was selling them in Chinatown where they then got shipped to China. Wait here a minute, the officer left his card."

Well, I get a hold of the officer and he pawns me off to another guy in some south side district who is supposedly the guy running down the case. Repeated attempts to reach him are unsuccessful and he never returns my messages. Eventually, I get to speak to, if I recall a desk seargant, a woman, who in a pissy demeanor tells me they have a lot more important things to be doing and that my phone was at some central evidence facility on the west side. I don't know why she was on tilt, but I blew it off because I figured she was having a bad day. I wasn't disrespectful to her. I asked her if she could give me the number to this west side evidence facility. She says in that same demeanor, "It's evidence, you can request to have it after the case is closed."

I was so disgusted, I just gave it up, tossed my notes and chalked it up to a $600 contribution to the CPD (It was an Apple OEM unlocked iphone5 if I recall. Right when they came out.).

Most of CPD are great people, but you have some bad just like anywhere else.

That's the last contribution I will ever make to the CPD as an organization.

You as individuals, I'll give you the shirt off my back.

Hey SCC, so now because it's reported by the media it must be true. You ever stop to think there may be a reason why the gun hasn't been returned. Seems you guys have sunk to just criticizing your co workers just because the liberal media reports one side of a story.

--==--==--==

Did you ever think that maybe we have some insight into the case? That maybe we work....oops. That maybe we investi....wait. That maybe, just maybe, we have way more info than the media does (or you do) because of our contacts throughout the Department, up to and including McCompstat's office? Oh no, that probably never even occurred to a brainiac like you.

This is what I unfortunately have to do. When I'm home up north in Wisconsin, I carry my Sig 245. When I go into Chicago for whatever reason I carry a cheap Glock or my XD 45. The Sig was expensive and will be returned to me by the Police in Wisconsin if I ever have to use it and shoot someone. In Chicago, if I ever have to use one of the guns, well this thread says it all. I don't care about the Glocks or XD's. They are cheap. The City can keep them. The 245, not so cheap and I want it back.
Be safe boys.

Good thinking. Thank you. I will do the same, although, it will not be too often because I avoid Chiraq like I avoid the plague.

Keeping someone's gun for an extended "investigation" is not uncommon is city police departments. Others do the same thing.

One is probably going to have to file a lawsuit to recover the gun. While the CPD may give you some BS about "we don't know where the gun is" should be a total crock. The E-Track inventory system works in such detail that if you pull up the history you can track each and every time the item was moved at EARPS.

But what happens when it goes to the Illinois State Police Crime lab? Don't know. Wouldn't be surprised if one of the civilians doing the transport or intake glommed it.

Here is an interesting question: If you are involved in a shooting and it is found to be justified and there are no charges, what is the agency's authority to sieze the gun? And to examine it without a search warrant?

"Anonymous" hackers are amateurs playing in a professionals game. One thing their expertise did is fuck up the gathering of intel done by the CIA and NSA by hacking sites that our side was listening to. If hackers from "Anonymous" want to put their skills to work for a good cause they should apply online at cia.gov

I really thought the CPD had a process in place to take care of a law abiding citizen involved in a shooting. I'm not the police, but during a domestic with my now ex-wife, the police were called and she wanted me out of the house. You know, the usual he's threatening me and all that non-sense. One of the first things the officer ask, is there a gun(s) in the house. I told the officers an old 22 rifle was in a box up in the attic buried with Christmas decorations. He made me go up into the attic and dig it out. They took the single shot 22 rifle I had when I was a kid and inventoried it. It's been two years, no domestic violence charges, and not even an arrest in my history. Every time I call and try to find out how I can get my rifle back, I'm told their back logged and the process is not complete. Monday, I'm hiring an Attorney to get this 22 rifle back. It's been two years and now its the principle of the thing. I want to pass the rifle to my son any I feel my rights are being violated.

Sorry, but I'm guessing your 22 is scrap iron now.

Note to all calling for the NRA and ISRA to act on his behalf.....

He was in direct contact with a significant player from both groups shortly (within hours) after leaving the investigation by CPD...

They only gave him a referral to an attorney......
