Shut Up Steinberg

You want to read the most amazing piece of journalistic malpractice ever written?

We're sure you can use a Google search, but read the Wife-Beater's column from 29 December.

He actually pens an entire piece without ONCE stating the words "baseball bat," nor the name "LeGrier," nor "assailant." Just an out-and-out smear job.

And this guy makes a living at it somehow, amazingly. In the old days, people like this used to live under bridges, ranting about aliens anal probing them and such...which might explain a lot of what he writes.

Hey Neil, we heard the missus burned your eggs....shouldn't you "explain" to her how that shouldn't happen? Maybe while you slam another wine cooler, big man.

Given the constant attacks that the police seem to be the subject of in these pandering, agenda based rags that call themselves "newspapers". Why give the courtesy of allowing those that deliver this nonsense to habitually commit traffic offenses for the sole purpose of getting this biased crap to the public faster? I realize that they are not the ones writing it, but they are a pretty important cog in the machine that does. I'm sure they are very pro-police too, but why wouldn't they be? They get to drive around like they own the streets at the cost of a few free papers. And the message they deliver is one of lies that paint police officers as villainous, racist, malicious murderers who start every tour praying to their god of war to present them the opportunity to shoot a minority.

These papers always like to question the police regarding following policies, procedures, and laws (especially traffic laws with regards to an accident involving the police). Well, shouldn't their drivers have to conform to the traffic laws? They will either have to actually hire more of them (see, you might be doing them a favor), or they will not be able to make their deliveries in time and maybe less of the public read their drivel.

Who pissed in HIS Lucky Charms?

This drunken Nancy-boy has had his nose out of joint
against Policemen since forever.

He won't spill as to what so royally cheeses his crackers
about Policemen and what they stand for.

In spite of not "getting it right" often enough to please
a paragon of manly perfection like Neil Steinberg.

Hollow and smug little men who never had to put it on the line
for the rest of society.

We wish the CHA high-rises were still up.
We would've LOVED to have had Neal walk
in harms way with us for a week.

Being where m/fers want to shut your eyes on a pretext
Because you wear a blue suit with a piece of tin pinned to
the chest.

You stand for and represent something good Neil and his ilk
can't wrap their heads around.

You "Warrior Cops" that society is now saying it doesn't want
Or need anymore.

You're too...
Well, too...

You big, beefy, no-nonsense/quick tempered, heavy-fisted, 3rd/ 4th/ 5th generation,
Well schooled in Chicago ways have somehow incurred Steinberg's wrath for doing
what he wished he had the manliness to do himself.

Poor deprived, angry, drunken, hate-filled has-been Neil...
He will never stand in the company of such robust and hearty men.

25 Police shootings out of nearly 3000
for 2015.

9 offenders killed.
1 horrible and tragic accident.
Out of 500 homicides.

The vast majority occurring in the Catered-To-Constituent
No-Go Zones on the south and west sides where the death cults
thrive with the nodding assent of all who live there.

"Why are you Coppers so mean and so full of hatred and anger?
You shouldn't be allowed to think that way."

"You guys are nothing but a bunch of wild and out of control,
gun loving, Mt. Greenwood inbred conservative free-thinkers who think you're so clever
hiding behind that smart-assed SCC guy who won't reveal himself to US!"

There is no Ethics in reporting these days. Reporters and the whole industry is about drama and sensationalizing the news. Everything is "the sky is falling". Few do their job. Most look for the easy route, they don't report the news they create and become the news. Shame.

Neil Steinberg might be my least favorite local Chicago "journalist". The Germans call his type "Lugenpresse - lying press".

Did anyone else here notice Steinberg's insane rant on the Muslim "refuge" migrant invasions of Europe and the USA?

Neil Steinberg claims us evil White American Protestant Christians are the main villains in American history:

” No refugee group was welcomed in this country. From the Irish in the 1840s onward, all were diseased subhumans bringing crime and strange ways who could never fit in to the American dream. Ditto for the Chinese — our first anti-immigration laws were to keep them out. Ditto the Italians. And the Eastern Europeans. In the late 1930s, 83 percent of Americans — about as close to unanimity as you can get — were against easing America’s draconian immigration laws to admit Jews frantic to get out of Germany. A Congressional bill that would have admitted 20,000 German children under the they’re-so-cute-when-they’re-young exemption died in committee.

Why? Well, c’mon, they were Jews. Nobody wanted Jews around, for lots of reasons just as specious as the reasons the governor wants to yank away the welcome mat that isn’t there for Syrians. The Jews were also seen a threat, and if few here sincerely thought they kidnapped Christian children and drank their blood, they knew they took jobs and college berths that God intended for real Americans.” (Chicago SunTimes “Give Rauner a Break” 11/17/15)

Holy shit that was the biggest pile of crap I ever read. it made me angry. But I took a breath and realized that mr 0486 doesn't no shit. In my 12 years mostly spent in urban war zones I have never shot first and asked questions later. I have never discharged my weapon. Like a lot of guys I work with most have never discharged their weapons.

That is the data I would like to see, first an actual number of officers. Second hoe many officers have ever discharged their weapons at an assailant. Third how many officers hit that assailant. And finally how many resulted in a fatality. I bet people would be shocked with how low of number of actual officers who fire their weapons.

You just don't get it do you?
What is "trained and schooled as a journalist"mean?If it means a few letters like BA BS MA MS after your name, there are thousands on this job that have that, along with Academy training, and most importantly-Street Experience.Street Experience that the "schooled journalist" does not have a clue about.In fact, most "schooled journalists" who have gone through the "Shoot don't Shoot" Scenarios nation wide, the same scenarios police recruits go through, those "schooled journalists" failed miserably.

"You guys are nothing but a bunch of wild and out of control,
gun loving, Mt. Greenwood inbred conservative free-thinkers who think you're so clever
hiding behind that smart-assed SCC guy who won't reveal himself to US!"

The above quote is from one of your "schooled journalists".No one here is trying to tell him how to do his job.We are simply responding to the written venom that this domestic battery offender spews weekly against our profession.He has his op-ed, we have ours.
Gun loving,clever,Mt. Greenwood,not inbred,conservative,free thinker.Add in smart-assed too.

Is this wife beater still upset at the police for arresting him for domestic battery? Get over it, you little drunken prick. You beat your wife and smacked the phone out of her hand when she was afraid enough to call the police on you, you little shit. How can he be taken seriously when he talks about ANYONE abusing someone? Let's read from the Tribune's report in 2005, shall we:

Steinberg, 45, of Northbrook was arrested about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday in his home after his wife, Edie, called 911 and reported abuse, said Sgt. Michael Keady of the Northbrook Police Department. Steinberg spent the night in jail and posted bail Thursday.

Edie Steinberg had first tried to call emergency services on another telephone, but Neil Steinberg hit that phone out of her hand, causing minor injuries, Keady said.

She was able to call 911 on another phone, he said.

Nice guy, huh? Get him another round or two. He's feeling like a big man. Big enough to fight a woman.

From the Chicago Reader:
Late at night, Steinberg was arrested on a domestic-battery charge for striking his wife—for slapping her because she said she was afraid of him and she started to call 911. He was also charged with interfering with the reporting of a domestic battery—that happened when he ripped his kitchen phone off the wall and hurled it across the room.

Now he wants to tell the police how not to overreact? PLEASE!

This jackass is such a piece of shit that he didn't even want to pay a lawyer to defend him after beating his wife. Read this from the Tribune:

Steinberg was not accompanied by a private attorney for the hearing in the Skokie courthouse and planned to use a public defender, Jeanne Bishop, a friend who went to journalism school with him at Northwestern University.

"Since there was a chance, or at least I harbored the chance, that it might be dismissed, I didn't want to spend the 750 bucks" on a private attorney, Steinberg told Cook County Circuit Judge Earl Hoffenberg.

But Hoffenberg told Steinberg that public defenders only represent indigent people who can't afford attorneys and asked Bishop to withdraw from the case, which she did immediately.

Teach us more, Neil. You are so wise, just, and gentle.

Aren't journalists supposed to report facts? Seems to me he is not a journalist, he is a writer of an opinion column. A real journalist is concerned with the who, what, where, when, and how, and doesn't inject an opinion as to why. Sadly, the reason most get into the journalism field now is to shape opinion (Walter Cronkite) and change the world, not report facts. Time for a new and improved, unbiased media and try the current media for treason.

He's not a "journalist." He's a hack opinion writer, who writes about shit he knows nothing about, has never researched and cares so little about, he accuses some of being "inbred Mt. Greenwood" denizens. How does that qualify him for anything short of pumping out Port-o-Lets?

Oh, he also beats his wife and terrorizes his children. We are an opinion writer, too. So there is no comparison.

We also don't beat women.

Therein lies the difference.

God forbid we're ever compared to an opinion writer.

I am trained and schooled as a Police officer Who also has Bachelor Degree from Depaul and a Graduate Degree from UIC. So how can you defend an asshat journalist who has never been the police. All this alleged journalist does is monday morning quarterback for ratings. The media today are a bunch of worthless hacks, they have no integrity and no investigative skills. This city is lost.
