Well This is Just... (UPDATE)

...something:
  • The hatred for police is showing strong in Obamaland. The Chicago Parade committee has recently ruled against a pro police display for their St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Obama’s home town even turned down Toys for Tots who were going to ride bikes in the parade for donations, simply because they were standing up for police. Simply put, Obama’s home town isn’t the place to show pride for police, but #blacklivesmatter displays, they are perfectly fine.

    When a group of people who wanted to show support for law enforcement while raising money at the same time, this is the answer Obama’s hometown gave them:

    12729077_10208362567798849_4843860179153416443_n

So a pro-police marching unit is banned from the St. Patrick's Day Parade? Is this is some sort of bad joke or something?

UPDATE: Some legit questions about this "group" and their fundraising practices popping up in the comments. "Opportunist" is one of the words that comes to mind. We'll see how it all plays out.

Wow!
The CPD has always been a part of this parade for as long as I can remember. (And that's a long time)
If this isn't a wake up call for all the new officers on this job I don't know what is.
The overwhelming majority of people hate us. No one stands up for us and the disrespect in public is at its highest it's ever been.
Please to all the younger officers .....stop being proactive no one appreciates the work we do and no one has our backs.

1st of all I am not a cop, but it seems strange to publically release a photo of a witness, you are seeking to interview regarding a crime you are prosecuting, until trial, right?

Everything is the fault of RACISM, Didntdonuffins being photoshopped to look sweet and innocent, members of the Lugenpresse - lying press presenting mentally deranged PCP Angel Dust brain addled maniacs running down the street with large knifes or metal baseball bats.

The BlackLiesMatter mobs really can't get their street mob protests up and going in the Chicago cold winter - so expect all this to break at the Dem national convention - where is it this year? New York City? If so unfortunately the NYPD can probably keep things under control - instead the convention should be in Baltimore.

They have all bought the media narrative that we as police officers are racist, are more likely to kill blacks and that we engage in criminal activities and a code of silence allows us to get away with it.

so you're telling me that black lives matter garbage can march all over downtown and screw up businesses with no repercussions and a pro police group is afraid to make their feelings known. I'm calling bull shit. If this group actually believed in being pro police then they should march in the parade. There's a thing called freedom of speech that everyone is entitled to not just the "oppressed".

Reaping the first fruits of The Police and Policing having
been driven into a corner in Chicago...

If only they would take it to elected officialdom and the
"Catered-To Constituency" as hard as they've been
taking it to The Police.

And Policemen, being majority rational, reasonable,
discerning and mentally agile human beings; are being
slammed and resoundingly damned for the self-protective
posture they've taken...

Second class citizenship by virtue of an oath of office?
Meanwhile, everybody has to be respectful of Chicago's
Urban Death Cultists rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

(Something for you soft, squishy types to ponder when somebody
is up in your buzzy door with you...)

We "bitter clingers" tend to have problems with those
optics so excuse us if we seem reluctant to buy in.

Since the "social contract" has been shredded,
(and only the biggest of fools or the most delusional
of progressive agendists would still dare to deny)
isn't it logical for Policemen, to do a hard-eyed
re-assessment of their role based on the hotted-up
and increasing stridency of the anti-Police narration?

The so called "Silent Majority" is 25 years too late in speaking up...
There will NOT be any help coming for the people who pay the freight here.
To the powers that be, you exist only as a funding mechanism for a municipal
government no longer interested in serving YOU.

The tables are cocked, the dice are loaded and the game is now totally rigged.

Heh... All this smoke and flame about "out of control cops" while
Rahm The Lick-Hitter is very likely setting the table for a multi-billion dollar score
at taxpayer expense.

Then he'll fly off to bigger and better things
as Chicago is left a smoking crater.

Thanks to Jim Coyne business manager of plumbers local 130 for allowing extreme anti-American activists to realize their dreams of hatred and contempt for law enforcement in your once proud ethnic, expressing pride-parade.

And speaking of snakes, all you need to know is the grand marshal this year is the honorable michael j. madigan. Its an election year ya know. So much for the symbolic speech by the voting present obama to reach across the aisle in a bi-partisan manner and to move forward with a message of hope and change with a flair for inclusiveness.

Truly un-fucking believable. Why doesn't Rahm just come over to Chicago Police headquarters and give everyone the finger. The one that is complete. Oh, he has no balls either.
It is a parade and I am sure if the Gangster Disciples or Latin Kings wanted to enter a float they would be welcome with open arms and gift cards for providing employment for our youth. Let those anti-police jagbags fend for themselves the next time they are in need of help.
We are a proud pro police family and support those that put their lives on the line for us each and everyday.

Maybe they can sort this hot mess out by reminding the little evil leprechauns on the committee the police protect our communities and provide the vital function of keeping an orderly society.

If you don't like political messages in your parade, remove all things democrat including the politicians and you will have a very thin parade. The parade committee should be charged with excessive farce. Alright 19th ward committeemen and comitteewomen, its time to have a little talk and beer summit with the parade's community organizers and end the anti-police bias in this bias free city. Go blue.

People could respond in a few ways to this. 1. boycott the whole damn thing and flood the office with email, mail, phone calls till they break. 2. March with banners and signs anyway and see if they are willing to violate 1st amendment right. 3. Hold the parade in another town. Either way, they are making it very obvious who they are choosing to discriminate here. If this were an all minority group looking for a place in the event it wouldn't even be an issue.

OT --

Policing the border today --

Faulty communications along U.S.-Mexico border are America’s blind spot

February 10, 2016

"Put yourself in the shoes of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent. You are patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border, driving through desolate terrain, and in the distance, you spot movement. You head toward a deep ravine and step out of your vehicle when a shot rings out and you hear the zip of a bullet speeding past your head. With training and instinct, you dive for cover and draw your weapon, reaching for your handheld radio.

"And the radio doesn’t work.

"There’s no one to call, because you are in one of the many areas of the southern U.S. border that has no radio coverage. Out there in the ravine is a drug cartel “rip crew,” heavily armed and firing on your position, bullets punching into your vehicle until smoke is rising from the hood. If they come closer, you are outnumbered. If they flee, your vehicle is disabled, and they will disappear into the vast emptiness along the southern border, where they will likely fire on one of your fellow agents, should they encounter them.

"...the lifeblood of the border security apparatus is communication, and in some areas, communication is not possible.

"...the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) launched a massive project to improve the communications capacity of officers along the U.S. border. It failed. $945 million in taxpayer funding used to build radio towers and upgrade radio equipment has yielded little benefit and in some cases does not work as well as what Border Patrol agents were using before."

I'd be a little cautious when dealing with Gary Snow, seems he's a one man show trying to sell T-shirts with the proceeds going to various police organizations. Also he set up a GoFundMe account for Van Dyke without the families knowledge, his GoFundMe page has the money going to Gary Snow,and none of the police organizations he claims to fund have heard of him.Below is a quote from another police blog on FB from somebody that questioned him.


The guy that is unhappy that he cannot be in the parade supporting police officers is GARY SNOW. GARY SNOW is the same guy that started the GO FUND ME FOR Officer VanDyke. No where on CODE BLUE SITE can you find a name of people in the organization. I sent an email and lo and behold GARY SNOW answered me and encouraged me to sell the T shirts in our group so we would have them in time for the parade.
When I asked for other names he sent me another message

Madigan reach across the aisle ? You must be kidding as it is not in his interest. Just as it is not in the interest of Lisa to prosecute public corruption. A lot of people don't know that there is also an Inspector General for the Illinois Legislature. He has never referred a case for prosecution and has never asked Lisa to file suit to recover money misappropriated, such as in phony grants or legislative tuition waivers where the people perjured themselves.

This will serve a dual purpose to both protect officers and increase their safety while at the same time safeguarding the people who pay taxes and really deserve it and appreciate our help.

May I suggest the following?
1) Follow the advise of Flager. Enforce the law. Parking tickets, towing if possible etc., etc. for the participants.
2) Follow the tactics of BLM. Have friends and family block the streets to exercise ones 1st Amendments Rights.
3) Contact EVERY sponsor and make it VERY public that they DO NOT SUPPORT the Police. Nothing like good public pressure to help a cause. Find out who is on their Corporate Board and contact them at their regular business. You probably wont get through to the board member but you can leave a message with the secretary saying "why doesn't John Doe support the Chicago Police and actively tries to ban them from the St. Patrick's Day Parade?"
By using their tactics and actions, what can they say? You'll either accomplish your goal or expose them for the hypocrites they are.

It says you can sell apparel and accept donations without risk or cost. Chicago Code Blue has shirts for sale there with the logo and a shamrock, just in time for St Patricks Day. There are "names" listed of people who have bought shirts or donated. Chicago Code Blue said it is a coalition of self funded members and want to show support for law enforcement while raising money. My questions are: who is Gary Snow? Where is Code Blue located? Who are the members? Since they raise money for law enforcement where does the money go? And so on. Can someone vet Gary Snow & Chicago Code Blue?

I would not blame any of you if you react like this: The solution is simple; de-police the event. Do not take it as an off duty job, call in sick if scheduled and those of you on, do not rush an assignment. Let them call in the plumbers. This is exactly the kind of deal you should NOT attend in any manner either as an extra assignment or respond aggressively to in the event of a disturbance. And be especially careful because you are more than likely to be pelted with debris by all parade goers and spectators than not. We are in a period of anarchy that we have to go through before we exit the period. There is nothing you can do about it. It is endemic and the by- product of poor civilian leadership and management over decades.

haha.....you think people will miss out on OT $$ for the good of all in uniform???

Keep dreaming.

Boycott this thing, if you are being detailed there then call into the medical one hour before your tour. See how they like not having the police around. Fuck them and this city, let the savages have it. Hopefully more innocents won't get murdered.

Our pipebands should not play in this parade as in years past, also outside departments that come and march with us should also boycot.

All you people do is complain. I take a positive approach to things. Case in point, the department just announced a Detective's Test. Well, many of you remember The Doer.

This is the protoge of The Doer. I have already started to study.

While you people complain, I am working on my career.

Cheers,

Witness shootings in extremely high taxed Lincoln park,McCormick place hotel the Gold coast not fun anymore watching them is it? The animals need to meet "Mr. Mayhem"

Hello, I am Gary Snow, founder of the community based NON PROFIT group Chicago Code Blue. It has been brought to my attention that some feel as if my intentions to show support for the men and women of our Chicago BLUE are not legitimate. If you need to ask me any questions personally, please feel free to contactme, as I HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE. You can email me at gsnow@chicagocodeblue.com

Myself, Chrissy Zanin, and Teri King created Chicago Code Blue in efforts to rally citizens to show support for the CPD officers, as well as local law enforcement. Chrissy's pro police rally last Dec 12. was cancelled per the request from CPD, and we both felt the the Chicago St. Patricks day parade was the perfect venue to allow the citizens to show support for the officers. Teri king is the founder of P.A.C.K people against cop killers, she has also held the Blue ribbon walk last year, and has another walk scheduled for this year.

I am also the author of the facebook pages:
www.facebook.com/Justice-for-JVD-Jason-Van-Dyke-is-Innocent-1074636142566979
www.facebook.com/Jason-Van-Dyke-is-Innocent-790557057740668

I believe that I am the only person who is publicly defending this 14 year veteran of the force. I was there on the 29th at the courthouse in a show of support for Jason. I have filed several FOIA requests for his complimentary report, complimentary letters, and all data on his honorable mentions. Channel 2 had said they will do a story only when all info has been released. I am currently in correspondence with P.O Rodriguez with FOIA, and I should have the letters Monday.

I AM THE ONLY PERSON WHO SHOWED UP ON BLACK FRIDAY, ON THE MAG MILE, TO SHAKE THE HANDS OF OFFICERS AND TO REASSURE THEM THAT THE PEOPLE STILL SUPPORT THEM.

I AM ACTIVLY IN THE PUBLIC EYE DEFENDING THE OFFICERS OF THE CPD AND JASON VAN DYKE.......I SEE NO ONE ELSE OUT HERE WITH ME.

Chrissy and Teri both have enough courage to stand up for what they believe in.

anyone who thinks we are "Scammers" or that our efforts are not ligitamate, please feel free to contact me.

The response we have received so far is overwhelmingly positive, but I expected we would have some skeptics or haters

In Chicago, this isn't some overtime gig. It's a detail. An on duty detail away from your normal duty assignment.

Just your local southside Er Murse. Everybody in my Er is planning on showing up with Blue Lives Matters signs, blue ribbons and CPD hats/clothing on. One nurse I work with married to a copper is going to bring a bag of blue ribbons and will be handing them out. If we band together we can have the loudest voice. The objective is to get as close to tv cameras and commentators as possible. Troll them if we have to. Wave blue flags, banners, signs and ribbons mercilessly. None of us subscribe to the Rhamicide! We drink coffee not the KoolAid.

Er Murse.

No matter what you say, thousands will show up at this parade because of tradition. Lets all get together and wear BLUE garter bands on our right arm in support of the police! I bet you will get thousands of parade goers who will wear these bands! It will make a strong statement. If Bouncy Bouncy can do it at the Super Bowl, we can do it better and bigger! Get those blue arm garter bands ready now!!!

uh, Im the one who posted that. At no point was I asked to "comprehend" the statement you made, but if you are asking me if I do, Im painfully aware of what you guys are going through (relative is CPD). So, Im comprehending very well so far. thanks. I want you guys to have cameras, and I wish there was a way to share the videos those would capture via FOIA request, because I would want to shame the hell out of all the A$$ wipes that are accusing you guys of abuse. Let the public see the crap you deal with, and maybe it will help stop the false narratives out there. Im not sure if you guys care though.

Stay safe.

As far as the t-shirts for JVD......WHO ELSE IS PUBLICLY SHOWING SUPPORT FOR HIM, OR TRYING TO RAISE MONEY FOR HIM AND HIS FAMILY.

I simply thought that this was a great way to contribute, as a citizen who believes this 14 year veteran of the force IS INNOCENT.I got a huge response and others want to show support for him as well

Currently the only way to donate any funds to the Van Dyke family is through the Patrolmen credit union. I wanted to help....not SCAM. But before accusing me, why not HELP ME. I have reached out to the Daniel Herbert several times and he has accepted my friend request via Facebook. He knows and can monitor my actions to support the CPD and JVD,

I am in no need of additional income. I work full time and bring home over $100,000 a year as a contractor. So to think I am in this to make some money is absurd! WE ARE COMPLETELY SELF FUNDED.

Could we use some help from a fundraisers, YES, that allows others to get involved.
