Plow Faster Damnit!

  • Here it is, the most Chicago news item of winter 2016 and also of human history: A Chicago Streets and Sanitation Department driver was shot at while clearing the streets in a snowplow on Sunday [...]

    No one was injured.

    The incident took place around 2:30 p.m. in West Garfield Park, near the intersection of West Lake Street and North Kostner Avenue.
At first, we imagined it was a pedestrian firing at the plow, since everyone in the ghetto walks in the street at the first sign of a snowflake. Then we heard it was probably a drive-by from a previous altercation, so we thought, "Who the hell would want to go anywhere fast under Lake Street?" That is some seriously suicidal driving on dry pavement...and with Rahm's bike lanes reducing the available acreage by half? Once a month to gas up the VRI car is plenty for us.

In any case, that neighborhood doesn't want the police around. Now they don't want the plows around. We pull CFD out of the 'hood and we can start shutting off the lights in the non-taxpaying portions of the city...like Detroit.

No worries the Illinois State Police have helicopters, planes and unmarked cars to catch people who are shooting at vehicles.

With this current leadership it's game over........

Chicago is now a real war zone with air support.

Hey, I'm all for cutting off services to those who don't pay for them. Nice things are for the productive.

Probable just warning shots. Was the local gang paid their protection money to come onto their turf with the plow? Think of it as an entry tax.

Gentlemen, please... I can explain.

The aggrieved motorist merely offered a robust shout of encouragement - the kind he learned as Captain of the Rowing Team at Harvard. However the snowplow driver reacted like a Dartmouth man or something and believe me from then on, the game was afoot ! Insults were hurled back and forth faster than a lacrosse match and before you knew it, the snowplow driver left the motorist no choice. A pearl-handled derringer was retrieved and Harvard's honor was restored ! No harm done and nobody soiled their monogrammed blazer.

This is how disputes are settled among men of honor on the West Side. Carry on....

Get Archbishop Pope God Hoo-Raw Ha-Lay-Loo-Jah Angel Saint Michael Pfleger -- the most hated man in Chicago aside from yourself affecting to read a paper while riding the "L" -- to go on the ride-along. Get him a red beret and teach him to fold his arms and glare at people so that he looks bad.

You can point here and there at different things. Both of you in your own impaired ways, I mean.

So funny your initial comment about everyone in the ghetto walks in the middle of the street at first sign of snow. They do that with or without snow. I've never understood this and they'd be first to complain if their neighborhoods had no sidewalks. I thought it was just something I was perceived as a cop but I Google it and couldn't believe all the other people that were asking the same thing. I still don't get why "they" do that.

How can it be that a certain whack job Lt from 016 can get into an offenders vehicle abandoned on a pursuit all while he is off-duty, drive around in the vehicle before it was processed by an ET and return the vehicle to where it was before going back inside his house and saying nothing to anyone about what he just did? This is the same wacko (RK) that yells at everyone like they are little kids. If you don't believe me, it was ALL caught on dashcam video. Including him driving on all his neighbors grass.

Okay ladies and gentlemen in Blue and White...

I have been Detailed to ride around the 41st Ward this week due to a special assignment to locate and document every single parking zone sign and meter location in the entirety of the area from Lawrence to Howard/Nagle to East River Rd. I spent the day today between E River Rd and Cumberland / Bryn Mawr and Argyle.

That is what they want give it to them, get out in front of it, do a press conference say they don't want snowplowed no problem put the plows in areas where people respect them! Wait with that concept why are we spending (wasting) over 100 million in scare taxpayer money on VRI extra police in ghetto thug areas where they don't want police? Pull those police immediately why force them to take services they don't want? They could have aldergoofs with the badges they carry,ride along with the rev crew and use their cell phones to let thugs call them, then they respond this would be excellent!

How many officers are we down? Has the pension payment been made? Is the 60 million freely given of pension money being investigated from the daley/vaneko poof we took police officers pension money and lost it all bunch?

'I still don't get why "they" do that. [walk in the street].; It's a combination of not respecting rules, authority, of wanting to take something of value for themselves (in this case, the right of way), and a general hostility to technology and civilizational infrastructure. By the time they regularly walk in the middle of the street, things are pretty far gone (a la Ferguson) - what happens first is they cross the street whenever and wherever they please. I call it the "ghetto crosswalk".

I'm curious. To what extent do ghetto dwelling assholes need to go to before liberals wake the fuck up? Shootings and murder rate skyrocketing-check, tax increases and funds diminished due to entitlements-check, rbt crimes skyrocketing-check, unspeakable savage crimes committed-check, and so and so on. What else needs to occur? I'm convinced of the problem along with practically everyone I know. How far does it have to go before we have problem acknowledgement?

The way it was explained to me by some hood rat is they walk in the street to avoid being shot by shitheads in the buildings - they feel it's safer - they can duck behind a parked car...

As for the plow driver - you're in a truck with a plow. Shithead is in a car - put the plow up, and ram the shit out of that vehicle with it... do it right and the problem is solved.... Then back to plowing...

----------------------

It's always been my guess that because of the crime in the hood, by walking in the middle of the the street they are less likely to be bumrushed from a gangway. More room to keep distance from danger. It's like driving down the middle of a country road, which allows you more room for choices if a deer bolts out of the fields onto the road.

OK Then make them feel like your and you feel really secure, make them have 1 way in 1 way out like your friends have rahm in their gated communities make them feel special! rahm you have police 24/7 they could have the same the police would be at the entrances opening and closing the steel gates protecting them like your protected mayor!

Good analysis. There follows sitting down in the middle of the street, in the aisles of stores, on stairways so people can't get by, running the wrong way on escalators shoving people aside, etc.

There is a powerful drive to be -- somewhere else. Not that they have anything to do there -- they could shout and break bottles just as well on their own corner -- but just to go somewhere else because they physically can do so. This seems to operate independently of the easier availability of potential crime victims in some areas.

Yup -- all the elaborate traffic lights and push-the-button-for-walk-signal devices, with timers displaying the remaining number of seconds left to cross, and they go wandering diagonally across four lanes just anywhere, often walking backwards and laughing with each other as they strip out a McD's order and produce a blizzard of unwanted napkins, ketchup packets, etc. Can't hit us or you be in trouble.

An ordered, rectilinear world generally not of one's own making, in which many cannot assign names to common everyday objects. Do as you will, take what you want, and damage, ignore, and leave the rest -- often making the area undesirable/unusable by your very presence.

Able to operate a sophisticated smartphone while seemingly unable to come to grips with the two simple white lines of a crosswalk. It's fascinating.

I stand well back on the corner, with a fire hydrant, light pole, heavy traffic-signal box, anything I can put between me and the turning traffic that sometimes comes over the curb -- and just watch.

(Look out for the lethal dualies on the rear of semi-trailers. That curb didn't get smashed by itself. They keep welding extra length onto freight containers -- 55 feet now? -- to the point I think the city will have to enact a length limit for safety.)

And then the plow driver is unemployed. Regardless of the circumstances No city employee has the right to ram a vehicle.
