This Again?

  • Interim Chicago Police Supt. John Escalante said the department has employed multiple strategies to quell a significant spike in violent crime at the start of the New Year – including the shootings of 16 people over an 11-hour period on Monday, including five homicides.

    Escalante said he has put his command staff on notice that he wants to hear any and all ideas for quelling the gun violence that has increased on the streets, but he said it’s the easy availability of guns that is fueling the spike in shootings.
And what trick are we pulling out of the bag?
  • Escalante said the department has increased the number of so-called “violence reduction strategy call-ins,” a strategy the department has used for six years to directly engage gang members.

    “That’s bringing the gang members in, putting them on notice about stopping the violence, but also giving them the opportunity to take advantage of social services that are there to provide them some alternatives,” he said.
Yay! A stern talking to! That'll show 'em! And after the stern talking, why....we'll put a note in their permanent record! And if that doesn't teach them, then by golly, Double Secret Probation!

Even SeeBS isn't buying this:
  • However, with 41 murders through Jan. 25, according to the Police Department, Chicago would be on pace for 600 murders this year, the first time the city has had that many homicides since 2003.
We're going to go out on a limb here and say Mr. Six isn't even in the final three for Superintendent.

The elephant (in their case the donkey) in the room is the Democratic Party which is destroying every major city that they control. In Chicago it is the CCSAO plea bargains cases for a guilty plea which gives the SA a high conviction rate so they are re-electable. The judges who fail to put criminals away when they have the chance. The Sheriff who unloads the jail. The Mayor, the Council, the CC board. I could go on ad nauseam but you get the picture. And all the pandering to certain elements just so they can get votes to stay in power. Do they ever wonder how their destruction affects their own children? The Superintendant can announce all the strategies which will mean nothing. This is not a police problem, but the Democrats want everyone to believe that.

Toni Preckwinkle gave a radio interview on WGN where she railed on the police officers that shot and killed Cedric Chatman and the State's Attorney for refusing to charge the officers with crimes. She said that Chatman had only committed a mere "property crime" and police gunned him down. Truth squad! Cedric Chatman and his friends just violently CARJACKED two victims and stole their property and was shot was refusing to comply with police commands and fleeing from the officers after committing a CARJACKING and while carrying a black object in his hand that turned out to be a black box and not a gun. The officers were completely justified in using deadly force under these circumstances.

Preckwinkle is a dangerous radical. If she takes control of the State's Attorney's Officer through her handpicked pawn Kim Foxx.

the media claims on pace for 600 murders?

only if you could measure January against the other twelve months of the year

1.6 murders a day in the cold month of January, about twice the level we've grown accustomed too in recent years

this will probably be a warm year like 2012, in which we had 512 murders I believe

my guess is that we will have at bare minimum 700 and 1000 is possible

by Father's Day there will be a very loud request for the National Guard

Joe criminal knows a lot about us and he is just noticing the real outcome of the lack of street stops, leadership and public support

the media and the Dept of Justice are just getting warmed up for our very own Salem Witch Trials, it used to be when shit got real bad out there they would cut us some slack and let us do our jobs, the DOJ and ACLU have no intention of doing so

I am not a fan of those who say let it burn, there is a domino effect, the more out of control the criminals get the more of us get hurt or killed

it is cheaper to bury a cop than to payout a family whose precious assailant son has tried to hurt/maim/kill a cop

When I came on the job in the early 80's, we were sent to 33rd & Normal for psychological training or whatever they called it. The class was run by a F/1 psychologist. The first thing she had us do was have everyone sit in a big circle, state your name, and what you did before you came on the job. We're going through this exercise and reached a fellow in our class who was very reserved, in that he hardly ever spoke to anyone. He gets up, states his name, and says " I was a guard in a state penitentiary for four years. I know ignorance cuz I've dealt with ignorance all the time. If it was up to me, they would give all those MFs a loaded shotgun and a quart of gin, and let'em have at each other. That would take care of that." He then sat down, and the look on the psychologist's face was something. Everyone except her was laughing their ass off. Shout out to you LC, you were ahead of your day!
