Back to Bedlam

One of the better pieces of journalism we've read in awhile, and we don't toss the "journalism" label around very often:
  • Will the anti-cop Left please figure out what it wants? For more than a decade, activists have demanded the end of proactive policing, claiming that it was racist. Pedestrian stops—otherwise known as stop, question, and frisk—were attacked as a bigoted oppression of minority communities. In March 2015, for example, the ACLU of Illinois accused the Chicago Police Department of “targeting” minorities because stops are “disproportionately concentrated in the black community.”

    Equally vilified was Broken Windows policing, which responds to low-level offenses such as graffiti, disorderly conduct, and turnstile jumping. Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King launched a petition after the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, demanding that Attorney General Eric Holder “meet with local black and brown youth across the country who are dealing with ‘Zero Tolerance’ and ‘Broken Windows’ policing.”

    Well, the police got the message. In response to the incessant accusations of racism and the heightened hostility in the streets that has followed the Michael Brown shooting, officers have pulled back from making investigatory stops and enforcing low-level offenses in many urban areas. As a result, violent crime in cities with large black populations has shot up —homicides in the largest 50 cities rose nearly 17 percent in 2015. And the Left is once again denouncing the police—this time for not doing enough policing. King now accuses police in Chicago of not “doing their job,” as a result of which “people are dying.” Stops in Chicago are down nearly 90 percent this year through the end of March, compared with the same period in 2015; shootings were up 78 percent and homicides up 62 percent through April 10. Over 100 people were shot in the first ten days of 2016. King scoffs at the suggestion that a new 70-question street-stop form imposed on the CPD by the ACLU is partly responsible for the drop-off in engagement. If American police “refuse to do their jobs [i.e., make stops] when more paperwork is required,” he retorts, “it’s symptomatic of an entirely broken system in need of an overhaul.” This is the same King who as recently as October fumed that “nothing happening in this country appears to be slowing [the police] down.”
Ms. Mac Donald has written a book, out this June, titled "The War on Cops" and if it's as good as this article, it'll be on our wishlist in short order.

In a completely unrelated matter, we were told that Chicago passed 1,000 people shot for the year yesterday - if so, a hearty congratulations to the ACLU for driving this new record. And a salute to Rahm - one fingered - for caving to these jagoffs.

These people are so stupid. The police haven't stopped doing their jobs They now have a whole knew set of rules to go by when encountering someone and that data is tracked, kept and scrutinized. These are the same fools that helped create the new rules. Keep in mind that the manpower is dangerously low too.

Since Shaun "Black Lives Matter" King has become a Subject Matter Expert on policing, maybe he should join a force in a large metropolitan city and show everyone how it's done.

Other than that, he really needs to STFU.

Did it ever dawn on this dolt that the black communities have more crimes committed by black offenders? Maybe the genius should be able to figure out that blacks are being stopped relative to the reality that there is more crime in their communities. Facts, not fiction.

I don't blame any cop for not wanting to fill out all that ridiculous, time consuming, putting a target on your back paperwork for the anarchists and haters out there.

1000 Shot? Let's do the "Medical Cost Math" -

$250,000 x 1000 = $250,000,000 (A quarter of a BILLION Dollars)
$500,000 X 1000 = $500,000,000 (A HALF Billion Dollars)

So we are not even into the Summer and we are looking at almost a Half BILLION Dollars in Hospital costs to treat gunshot wounds. That is INSANE.

This is a HUGE hidden tax on those paying Healthcare Premiums.

Good. We need some journalists to tell the truth, because unfortunatly, things are probably going to get even worse.

The cops that this department is going to be training are not going to know any differently how things were before all this BLM bullshit came into effect. They are still going to be gung ho and wanting to do police work. Which is all fine and I can't begrudge them for that.

The main problem which I believe is going to come in the future, for some of them, is that on one hand they are told to be pro active, but it is going to be beaten into their heads not to use deadly force except for only extreme conditions. Yes, I know that sounds as how it should be, but the way it's being put into their training is very dangerous.

The city is going to have new police officers doing work,
and then second guessing themselves to the point it could very well end up getting them hurt or killed. I hope to Christ I'm wrong.

These asshole bosses and politicians are playing with people's lives in a crooked game they run and only care about themselves. Thanks for telling us you have our backs. Does that include 5 years from now when a C.R. is reopened for another witch hunt?

If what I'm reading on this blog lately is true about bosses threatening to split up partners, or whatever other petty shit they might concoct down the line like deny days off, for lack of ISRs, then they should be held accountable for this whole mess this department is in and and any future police fatalities that show strong evidence of hesitation by the officer. Nothing will happen to them of course, but I hope they die a slow and miserable death. No one at their bedside. Only surrounded by the stacks of money they sold their soul for.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Asshole of the Week Comment.

Who do you think we were stopping asshat? We'll give you a hint - it wasn't grandmama, and it wasn't "250,000 innocent people." Just because they weren't dirty doesn't mean they weren't players in the game.

So they didn't have a gun or dope or a warrant this time. Doesn't mean they weren't drinking on the public way or littering or loitering or whatever. They got noticed and it got documented. End of story.

Whoops - not the end of the story, because now you've fallen for the ACLU contention that they were "innocent." Um, no, just not dirty enough to go to jail. See the difference? No?

Congratulations, you've becomes what we call "A Useful Idiot" and share the blame for contributing to the ACLU-Effect. You've assisted in the destruction of the city and the shootings of over 1,000 people in record time.

How does it feel asshat? All warm and fuzzy?

Ok I get what your saying, but you have been misinformed. Before the contact card procedure was not a'stop and frisk' card as you have been lead to believe. It was done for any CONTACT with a citizen, yes that includes positive contact as well. You see here's the thing the bosses were so desperate for contact cards especially in areas surrounding shootings that a good amount of police would fill them out for every citizen contact in an effort to keep their boss off their back...here are a few quick examples for you non police out there...let's say someone calls 911 about someone breaking into there house police arrive and find it was the callers kid who locked themselves out. a quick contact card on the caller that just said that they called 911 about someone breaking in to their house and it was found to be there kid. Say you are riding on your beat and get waived down by a store owner who is informing you about a suspicious vehicle he has seen circling the area. There you go another contact card...waived down by store owner who stated information about such and such vehicle blah blah blah

So people please don't believe everything you read ask any copper this was a way many coppers found to get these number generating contact card WITHOUT violating people's civil rights. Now the contact card has change it is not for any citizen contact it is only an INVEStGATIVE stop. So comparing the numbers is like comparing apples to oranges.

You must be a blm troll. Because any cop that just went through isr training knows that we can't "just stop gangbangers." Sorry, but being in a gang is no longer good enough. That group of 10 gang members that are hangin on the corner that you used to call to have removed b/c you felt they terrorise the community, well good luck going down there yourself and asking them to leave.

This is the result of BLM and the Left continued assault on law enforcement, which has caused officers to no longer do proactive policing. I feel for the innocent citizens, but most of them voted these worthless politicians into office that condone and even encourage the diminishing of law enforcement, they will reap what they have sown.

Video shows bystanders didn't help assault victim before he was run over

Within seconds of the punch, a half-dozen people gathered around Gaines, including two men who appear to have rifled through his pockets. Gaines' family said his cellphone and debit card were stolen. After a minute, the group and his attacker left the scene and as seconds tick away, individuals and groups of people walked by Gaines without trying to pull him out of the street.

British Police Station Was Quarantined After Arrival Of Vomiting Illegals

Oliver JJ Lane 21 Apr 2016
A police station in Luton in the East of England has been placed on lockdown after receiving a group of illegal migrant detainees who were feared to be carriers of a contagious disease.

Fifteen illegal migrants were discovered in the back of a lorry by British police, but a routine immigration violation arrest turned into a medical emergency when the men and women complained to headaches and started vomiting in custody.

The police station where they were being held was placed under quarantine and paramedics were called to take them to a medical facility. The medics declared the situation a “major incident”, reports the Daily Mail, as they inspected the arresting officers for contagion.

1:44am. Hey goof, of course we know exactly who to stop but even when we do, morons like you STILL have a problem with it. "Oh they werent doing anything, why the police stopping them?" Im sure youll be outside right along with the rest of the passerbys with your phone out recording us when we do instead of applauding us for actually giving somewhat of a damn about the hood and the actual good people who reside there. Yes we know who to stop because we know where the dope spots are, we know who the shooters are and when they're dumb enough to commit crimes out in the open for all to to see, we stop them. However when groups who have NO law enforcement experience and couldnt tell what a hand to hand transaction looks like even if they were standing right next to the dope boy and crackhead are given the authority to scrutinize us, you're gonna get what's been happening lately.....FEWER STOPS, MORE SHOOTINGS. In addition, to your comment about stopping 250,000 innocent people please show me your data backing that up. Were there people stopped who didn't go to jail? Of course, but it doesn't mean they weren't pulled over initially for legitimate reasons. The whole idea of stopping so many people in the first place tho was McCarthy and Compstats doing which YOUR Mayor supported....not the regular cops on the street. If you didn't have your head up your ass you'd know that it was.....THAT SIMPLE.

There's nothing left to do but leave this hateful city. How do you guys like having your 14th Amendment right of equal protection violated every day you wake up in a residence you are legally mandated to have in this hateful city?

How do you like that when you signed on, and one of the terms of employment was that you had to live here, you agreed to an unconstitutional overreaching onerous law?

Are you guys tired of this situation yet? Are you ready to take action? What's the "stake in the community" now when the community buys into hateful rhetoric and doesn't have basic trust in you to do your job?

How do you like a law and condition of employment being imposed on you that is not required of most other departments across the country, including the two largest cities in the U.S.? Namely, that you have to live here?

What's so special about Chicago that their police have to live here when police that work in L.A., N.Y., Miami, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, etc., even CICERO IL, don't have to live where they work? The so called reasons for justifying residency in Chicago, they don't apply to the rest of the country? Riiiiight.

What about if, FOP? Want to get the ball rolling like lodge 5 did in Philadelphia? Give them a call to see what they did, you can do that at least.

Most of the membership wants this, even if they're too afraid to admit it. Most of us at least want the OPTION to live where we want.

Now cue the chorus of "you knew this when you signed on", "who wants a long commute", "I dumped 60 grand into my bungalow and I don't want my property value to crash", "property taxes are higher in the suburbs". None of those opinions change what's right and constitutional.

Yes, I am sure that some of these stops were for people who as you say, " innocent".I happen to know some of them and they complained loudly to me about what happened to them. Yes, the pressure put on the tact teams by the department to get stops and fill out contact cards surely contributed to this. But, for the most part most of these stops were for folks who should have had contact with the police. Now, with the stops curtailed you can see what is happening. But, the progressives refuse to believe this based on a newpaper article from New York in which they claim that crime has gone done even with few street stops. My leftist friends blame the increase in violence on Gov. Rauner for not approving the Madigan budget and refuse to believe that a reduction in street stops can cause any increase in crime. They are applauding the NY cops for using " targeted constitutional stop" and wonder why CPD cant learn to do the same? It is funny that every progressive always has the answers to ever ill of society.

Yep, of course it's just that easy. Typical non-leo liberal fantasy view of how to be a copper. Just look for the name tag that each banger wears for that quick identification so you can perform an investigatory stop. This jagoff needs to take a long walk down 63rd st. around 2am from the Ryan to Ashland Ave. and bask in the warm glow hatred towards cops. It's that glow that makes it so easy to know who to stop and search. Being so easy, why don't you wear the badge or is it just easier to criticize and complain like the rest of the sheeple voting for Hillary or Bernie?

>>>> Heather Mac Donald: '... the Illinois ACLU deemed the department’s stop rates discriminatory because they did not match Chicago’s population ratios. ....a Police Accountability Task Force appointed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel used the same population benchmark to declare that the department has no “regard for the sanctity” of black lives...'

---> 'This flawed methodology for benchmarking police actions—comparing them to population ratios—ignores the incidence of crime. Between 1991 and 2011 blacks made up between 82 percent and 70 percent of all murder offenders. Whites made up between 3.5 percent and 5 percent of all murder offenders. Shooting and robbery disparities are likely greater. Drive-by shootings are simply not happening in white neighborhoods.'

Why does anyone pay attention to anything that asshole Shuan King says. The guy is, Not -- Even -- BLACK. That's right, Shaun King was outed after Ferguson. The guy has two white Birth Parents -- he's Whiter than f--king White! (Google him) He's another mentally ill asshole who *Identifies As Black*, and not long ago would be locked up in an asylum like those who, 'Identify As Napoleon Bonaparte'.

And besides all that he's a f--king CROOK! He's being sued and investigated for setting up numerous phony charities and scamming folks out of their money. (Google it)

Wait let me pull the crystal ball out of my pocket that should solve the problem it will point out all the criminals so that the innocent will not be stopped. Hey asswipe if they are not dirty they are on there way no harm no foul and if they were thinking about doing something they will think twice about it. Do you have any other words of wisdom?

Great article, SCC. One item that stood out to me, mainly because I've been touting the same thing for years, is who, exactly, is breaking the law. Arresting the lawbreakers and sorting by race, even the most casual of examination will reveal that racial population percentages and criminal percentages are inversely proportioned. Where is the legitimate complaint?

I am an African- American woman who has raised a son as a single mother. My son has never had an experience with the police, he has never been exposed to a gun and I always knew where he was and who he was friends with. Black people should worry about raising their children and stop will all the excuses of children not having a father at home etc. I raised my son as a single mother. He graduated from high school, and college with a degree in finance. I am happy that he no longer lives in this god forsaken city where some black people do not value the lives of others. When I hear people talking about protesting I tell them I will not participate until some of these people go to parenting classes. Its not rocket science on how to raise respectful law abiding children. I also tell them that not every shooting is lawsuit. People need to acknowledge what their children are out there doing. If you raise your f**king children a lot of these things will take care of themselves.

Let me explain something to you idiot! We don't know who all the gangbangers are in the city. They don't have a sign on them saying "gangbanger." Also a little tidbit for you, there are cultural differences when it comes to gangs. The Hispanic gang members take dumb pride in their affiliation. They wear their colors, they display their gang tattoos, and they admit to their gang membership. Now the black gang members have no loyalty to their gang. Their loyalty is to themselves and money. They don't wear colors, they don't admit to their membership and they all dress just like every other young person in the ghetto, pants off their ass!

Another book from this writer:

http://www.amazon.com/Are-Cops-Racist-Heather-MacDonald/dp/1566638674

Description:

"False charges of racial profiling threaten to obliterate the crime-fighting gains of the last decade, especially in America's inner cities. This is the message of Heather Mac Donald's new book, in which she brings her special brand of tough and honest journalism to the current war against the police. The anti-profiling crusade, she charges, thrives on an ignorance of policing and a willful blindness to the demographics of crime. In careful reports from New York and other major cities across the country, Ms. Mac Donald investigates the workings of the police, the controversy over racial profiling, and the anti-profiling lobby's harmful effects on black Americans."

"Those who make War against The Police

unfavorable terms with the less than

this city."

True. And the less than merciful ugly
hasn't even begun to peak yet.

Oh, there'll be a glimpse of him this summer
when the hot sticky nights arrive and the
puddles of blood flow black in the night. But
there's a lot of moving parts to the looming
train wreck and most of them are still coming
up to speed for a massive collision at the
intersection of "Holy Shit!" and "What Now?"

All the momentum is downward and there's not even
a glimmer of anything slowing it down. You think
the Midget, the aldershits, the revruns, will
suddenly turn from greedy, power-hungry, self-
aggrandizing hucksters into selfless, civic-minded
servant leaders overnight? Or ever?

The damage is done but the ugly, he needs time to
build. This summer will be bad. Next summer probably
worse. Summer after that worse still. Ugly be
feeling his oats by then.

Even if the death spiral slows and finally
stops, then what? Years of rebuilding, and
ugly be fighting every step of the way. Ugly
won't go easy back into his bottle.

Like Sheriff Clarke said, there's too many
pathologies at work in Chicago and not nearly
enough informal social structures in place to
resist them.

Robo-Cop was prophetic.

1000 Shot? Let's do the "Medical Cost Math" -

$250,000 x 1000 = $250,000,000 (A quarter of a BILLION Dollars)
$500,000 X 1000 = $500,000,000 (A HALF Billion Dollars)

So we are not even into the Summer and we are looking at almost a Half BILLION Dollars in Hospital costs to treat gunshot wounds. That is INSANE.

This is a HUGE hidden tax on those paying Healthcare Premiums.

This is a very important topic that needs to start being addressed my FOP come contract talks or the media needs to cover thus (yeah right). I was thinking about this the other night dealing with the savagery in this city and how much really is this costing the taxpayers?! Unbelievable ! These fucking democrats here will never address the root of any problem. Always shifting the blame. For the select few of you who bought the lies that this city is broke , it can't be. How can a city be broke and still afford wasteful projects and such? I know when I'm broke I can't buy or purchase anything. Oh, we don't have any money come contract talks. Or the CPD settled for X amount over some bullshit beef with some gangbanger. Ran on the news over and over . And the citizens eat up the peanuts. The REAL waste is this . And all the backdrop deals going on SCC has pointed out time and time again. How much are these savages costing us taxpayers? I don't care about some police chump change 1 time deal payout. This is every day. Very fucking day here. Millions of dollars.

You want to bet for one second if this had something to do with the gun lobby it would be addressed. Good Citizens, don't believe the lies and start paying attention to these politicians, the man behind the curtain. All this police bashing takes the attention off of them. They love it.

You must be stupid. The majority stopped from that 250000 2 years ago most likely committed a crime that justified the stop or had some sort of reasonable suspicion for the stop. Oh, and guess what? The majority that were stopped and did commit a crime were probably let go right after because of officer's discretion.

It's not a crime to be a gangbanger. Stopping someone based on our perception of them would be a violation of their civil rights. Don't you get it? Trayvon had his hoodie over his head on a hot day creeping around at night and that was an unlawful stop to some. Michael Brown just committed a robbery and some folks thought the police officers action were out of line. The police in NY were called about the guy selling loose cigarettes, which is illegal, and the same people asked why the police were "messing " with the poor fellow even as he was not following verbal direction during a lawful arrest. I knew how to do my job before and I know HOW to do my job now thank you very much.

The problem that i have is with all these outsiders dictating policy and procedure that, according to them, the police must follow.. These are not police officers and have no experience as to what a police officers job is.. The ACLU are lawyers, the reverends and community are just that community members, the aldermen are politicians. They have no business dictating police and procedure. You don't see me telling a lawyer how to prosecute a case, or an alderman how to do his job. If they want to investigate and then discipline or prosecute when excessive force is found fine, no problem there. But to dictate procedure and policy, I don't think so.

Just some number crunching and comments from a concerned citizen in Austin, TX.

CHICAGO, IL Final 2015 numbers - Total Shot: 2996 people

Shot & Killed: 444 Shot & Wounded: 2552

Police-Involved Shootings Shot & Killed: 9 Shot & Wounded: 16

OK, so let's think about these numbers using percentages.

2% of Shot and Killed were police involved, i.e. cops did the shooting.

.6% of Shot and Wounded were police involved.

98% of shooting deaths in Chicago were not caused by cops shooting people.
That's 98 out of 100 shooting deaths caused by members of the community.

99.4% of wounded by gunshot were not caused by cops shooting people.

OK, so how many of the 9 people killed and 16 people wounded by police officers in Chicago in 2015 were legitimate self-defense? Given the level of violence there, it's highly probable that most of them were legitimate. 25 killed and wounded out of a total of 2996 shot is eight-tenths of one percent. Sounds like they're doing a great job.

How many of the 435 people killed by members of the community might be alive today if police in Chicago were allowed to do their jobs without constant harassment by crooked politicians, demented social activists and phony religious conmen? And that's not to mention the DOJ, FBI, ACLU and other agenda-driven entities who care more about themselves than they do about truth and justice.

And what's up with the judicial and parole board putting killers back on the streets? Everybody I know, of all political persuasions, just shake their heads at some of the many stories of insane malfeasance that are readily accessible with a web search.

How many innocent people would be alive today if the black community cooperated with the Chicago Police Department?

In my opinion, the individuals involved in Black Lives Matter are directly responsible for numerous black deaths as a result of their propaganda campaign against police across America. The black community needs to call them out on this, loud and clear.

The lies being broadcast about police in America are unconscionable and are in fact crimes themselves, crimes against the people of the United States, people of all races.

We re now targets of lawsuits,job termination, death threats and accusations of excessive force and racial bias. We do not have a voice or anyone on our side anymore.

If you do anymore than the bare minimum today and believe any "Ra-Ra go get em team" speech that some of these bosses are pushing, you are a complete FOOL !!!! Do what you need to do to protect yourself, your fellow officers and your family.

Don't believe me, go read the entire task force report and everything you can on PERF and CALEA standards. The destruction and "pussification" of American Police Departments has now arrived.

That group of 10 gang members that are hangin on the corner that you used to call to have removed b/c you felt they terrorise the community, well good luck going down there yourself and asking them to leave. Seriously, that's what the aclu did for you. That's what "your community" wanted.

----
1st. I will never be apart of BLM. They are primarily a feminist/LGBT group( not that I have a problem with those two movements) whose leaders use the deaths of black men to profit and fund personal/ other expenses and ventures. I have some respect for them, but I will never be a member, never attend a protest, tweet the hashtag or anything. They are unorganized and unpredictable and will end the exact way "occupy" did.

Secondly, You find me one quote of your average black community member and no I don't mean the mother of the dope boy you locked up or the family members of the gang bangers you searched on the corner, or the mostly paid protesters, but your average black community resident, who has called for police to do less? Seriously, find me one quote and You have 5 rounds on me.

Wanting police to be held accountable for their actions and what the media has led you to believe what blacks want as a whole are 2 different things. Go back to August 2014- the mike brown fiasco. Every news article after that about any police shooting mentioned "white cop, black man/woman" in it. Black people didn't say it, not even BLM protesters. Only the media. That right there was step one in to making all of this confusing. YOU let the media, conservative politicians, fear mongering southern policemen/women, and your loyalty to the "blue" cloud your judgement on what the black community wants. The black community wants police who treats them as fair as they treat everyone else (I'm not here to argue the words "treat" and "fair", I won't argue that point, so don't even focus on it). That's what the black community wants, and in a way, I guess we got it. I mean, on the south and west sides, a group of 3 or 4 blacks walking down the street was almost always stopped or followed for 2 blocks by patrol cars (gang members or not) prior to Nov. 2015. while a group of 3 or 4 whites in Lincoln park are almost never stopped or followed while just walking down the street.(I won't argue that either. It happened , you know it happens(ed), and all of CPD knows it happens(ed)). So maybe things are "fair" now. Either way, YOU have chosen to do less as a cop. You don't want to do ISR's because they are long and black teens & young adults will put a camera in your face? Well, kids follow trends. Just like they did 10 years ago when they were kids and every one of them in every 'hood would see you turn the corner in your patrol car and run for no other reason than to get a reaction out of you. Cops see a camera now a days and turn as pale as a Ghost. Makes me wonder if your in car cameras really are just "broken" or did someone break them?

I am an African- American woman who has raised a son as a single mother. My son has never had an experience with the police, he has never been exposed to a gun and I always knew where he was and who he was friends with. Black people should worry about raising their children and stop will all the excuses of children not having a father at home etc. I raised my son as a single mother. He graduated from high school, and college with a degree in finance. I am happy that he no longer lives in this god forsaken city where some black people do not value the lives of others. When I hear people talking about protesting I tell them I will not participate until some of these people go to parenting classes. Its not rocket science on how to raise respectful law abiding children. I also tell them that not every shooting is lawsuit. People need to acknowledge what their children are out there doing. If you raise your f**king children a lot of these things will take care of themselves.

I commend you Ma'am! Unfortunately we need at least 100 women with a similar story as yours and that think like you to march on the downtown streets and shout out these truths during rush hour but I can understand how you may be reluctant since you're too busy working and paying taxes.

The racists are over at blm. The best way to bring sanity to this appalling city is to only allow blacks to frisk blacks. This should reduce crime and promote safety. There is a cost to that - the city would have regress.

1:57am....you again huh. I appreciate you responding to my comment but NOT addressing anything that was said. Instead you stick to the same ole "If you re not doing anything wrong you shouldnt fear cameras" bullshit. I've got news for you, we ve had car cameras for years and people have been recording us on the street for years and I'm not afraid of them, been proactive for 15yrs all in "my community." The issue was that I said when you give people like YOU who have no law enforcement experience or people that already have an "AGENDA" like the ACLU, the ability to make recommendations that may alter an officers livelilhood regarding what WE believe is reasonable (because what YOU perceive is different than what someone working the street perceives) less proactive officers is what you get. The point of me referencing my race was to let you know the comment wasn't written by some white racist guy with a badge. Instead it was written by a very intelligent, black officer who knows there are goofs in ALL professions (even yours, provided you work) but also WILL call his own community out on its bullshit when it's warranted and doesn't hide behind the ole "all cops are racist, blue wall of silence" bullshit that some people like to throw out there. You said it's not the black communities fault that we fear proactive policing.....I think the REAL issue is that it's the black community's fault that we re all killing each other at the rate that we are BUT WON'T DO A DAMN THING ABOUT IT but instead want to criticize officers like me who were stopping people on the street for illegal weapons. Believe it or not, a huge majority of us do care about getting real criminals off the street so the decent folks have a chance. Get your priorities straight bro and look at yourself and OUR community in the mirror first before telling other people what they should be doing.

Done

There's nothing left to do but leave this hateful city. How do you guys like having your 14th Amendment right of equal protection violated every day you wake up in a residence you are legally mandated to have in this hateful city?

How do you like that when you signed on, and one of the terms of employment was that you had to live here, you agreed to an unconstitutional overreaching onerous law?

Are you guys tired of this situation yet? Are you ready to take action? What's the "stake in the community" now when the community buys into hateful rhetoric and doesn't have basic trust in you to do your job?

How do you like a law and condition of employment being imposed on you that is not required of most other departments across the country, including the two largest cities in the U.S.? Namely, that you have to live here?

What's so special about Chicago that their police have to live here when police that work in L.A., N.Y., Miami, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, etc., even CICERO IL, don't have to live where they work? The so called reasons for justifying residency in Chicago, they don't apply to the rest of the country? Riiiiight.

What about if, FOP? Want to get the ball rolling like lodge 5 did in Philadelphia? Give them a call to see what they did, you can do that at least.

Most of the membership wants this, even if they're too afraid to admit it. Most of us at least want the OPTION to live where we want.

Now cue the chorus of "you knew this when you signed on", "who wants a long commute", "I dumped 60 grand into my bungalow and I don't want my property value to crash", "property taxes are higher in the suburbs". None of those opinions change what's right and constitutional.

4/21/2016 09:10:00 AM

The Constitution has nothing to do with it.

It was a condition of employment that was voluntarily agreed to.

It is not the black communities fault you fear proactive policing just because you feel you can't stop doing illegal things to black people. That is also the reason you fear cameras. This is a world class city(or so they say), you are always on camera. People pointing a camera at you should not bother you if you are doing what you are supposed to be doing the right way. If not.. Then you deserve to be cuffed and sat right along side the criminal you just took off the street. Having a problem with community residents asking questions and questioning government is having a problem with people having rights. Something you are paid to uphold. My data for the 250,000 figure came right from this very website.

Also, I don't give a damn that you are black. just like you know what the problems are in our communities you know exactly what the problems are behind that fake ass "brotherhood" you are sworn in to.

4/22/2016 01:57:00 AM

As a MW PO with over 25 years on I actually agree with some of your sentiment. The push for contact cards by the last Superintendent did trick bag a lot of Officers and citizens. Since you seem to read this blog you know a lot of us disagreed with this tactic. It was just a numbers game, nothing else, to make the politicians look good. The problem is it's never the bosses or the politicians who get in trouble over these things, just the street copper. Another thing is I dont fear the cameras, believe it or not I welcome them. I have gotten citizen complaints in the past where I wished I had a camera to back me up. It would have made my life easier. Also I have no problem with being recorded out in the public, just please dont interfere and let me do my job.

Now one thing I do blame the black community for it constantly voting Democratic to a fault. I'm not saying the republican is always better but perhaps a change, once in awhile may be good. You talked about a "fake ass brotherhood" regarding the police (Which I totally disagree with that) what about the "no snitching" policy in the Black community? Someone in a prior post talked bout how we shouldn't use the people the media interview as an example of the black community.I agree with that to a point. I have found the black community, like all others, to be mostly decent and law abiding. The difference I see is they dont step up and give visible support to the police. Maybe its fear or or being afraid of being called a traitor to the community. Other community's have shown visible support for law enforcement.

You must be a blm troll. Because any cop that just went through isr training knows that we can't "just stop gangbangers." Sorry, but being in a gang is no longer good enough. That group of 10 gang members that are hangin on the corner that you used to call to have removed b/c you felt they terrorise the community, well good luck going down there yourself and asking them to leave. Seriously, that's what the aclu did for you. That's what "your community" wanted.

----
1st. I will never be apart of BLM. They are primarily a feminist/LGBT group( not that I have a problem with those two movements) whose leaders use the deaths of black men to profit and fund personal/ other expenses and ventures. I have some respect for them, but I will never be a member, never attend a protest, tweet the hashtag or anything. They are unorganized and unpredictable and will end the exact way "occupy" did.

Secondly, You find me one quote of your average black community member and no I don't mean the mother of the dope boy you locked up or the family members of the gang bangers you searched on the corner, or the mostly paid protesters, but your average black community resident, who has called for police to do less?

Maybe you should question why the black areas where young men are stopped are flooded with an over abundance of police, who are mostly young over achievers who are chomping at the bit to do police work. If the crime rate wasn't so high, the over-policed ghetto would get the reprieve that perhaps is needed and the explosion of crime in the "white" neighborhoods would diminish, people in the black areas would stop being detained "for no reason", and everyone would be happy, right? But when YOUR community can not and will not stop killing each other, don't expect these resources to be allocated equitably, and your pipe dream of more whites being stopped will never happen.

How. Dare. You. "Fake ass brotherhood?" Your rhetoric disgusts me and you EPITOMIZE what is wrong with the "community" and it's disconnect from the real issues. You will NEVER get the service you expect from the men and women in blue that you obviously despise and look down upon. You have made your bed (aka BLM and ACLU) and now you get to lie in it. How does it feel????? Instead of attacking the motives of public servants that have dedicated their lives to serving YOU and your ilk, maybe your community needs to take a good long look in the mirror and ask the hard questions that need to be asked. We risk life and limb, and now our freedom and our jobs and our livelihood and that is apparently not enough. You got the police department that you deserve. End of rant.

Illinois has been doing this for years. If you renew online too, you have to give insurance info. Problem is these fools pay for 6 months, get an insurance card stating they have insurance for that 6 month period, then the following day drop the insurance and get a prorated refund but they keep the insurance card showing the are insurance
Yea it works.

Perhaps the black community should
hold itself accountable before they can
justifiably demand all this accountability
for the Police?

Nothing but excuses, blame shifting, fault finding
and screaming "RACIST!" at all who refuse to buy into
and excuse the pathological perpetually aggrieved
victim mentality of the last 50 years.

We notice that the "community" has a hard-on for
those "Funny Actin'" blacks who are social conservatives
and believers in hard work, education, clean and sober
living, hands-on child rearing, being law abiding and well
Informed among other things.

Also, according to our observations; Heaven help you if you're
a black Police Officer.

We remember a few years ago, some black Officers who came
on in the 50's and early 60's were interviewed for an article.

They got it doubly hard from both the "community" and
from the department. There are a few still living.
Ask them respectfully and they'll tell you.

We had some Officers and Supervisors from that generation, break us in
on the job. We still owe those gentlemen a debt of
gratitude for their instruction.

Not a dummy in that bunch either.
A few had college degrees when
they came on the job.

One who was a Sergeant (R.I.P) related that a M/2
Mid-level boss told him that his undergrad in Business from
Arkansas-Pine Bluff, was a little less than a Chicago
Catholic high school diploma, but:

"You're alright though. You're not poison like those OTHER guys..."

But the man held steady and worked his job.

We wonder what he and his peers would have
to say about the current state of affairs.

Just a little something we've been wondering about.

The overwhelming majority of Policemen don't care
for the agenda being pushed. Their interest lies in
doing what is right to the best of their abilities.

A lot of axe-grinding because Policemen are still
mostly loyal to upright ideals (however imperfectly) instead of to fallible
humans, which causes concern in some quarters.

Kind of like in the movie, "Gladiator,"
when Commodus had murdered
Marcus Aurelius and was trying his
damndest to extract an oath of
fealty from Maximus.

Maximus rightly discerned that
Commodus had no honorable
intent and thus refused to kiss
his ring.

Just a movie, but art bears eerie
similarity to life in this struggle for
the soul of this city and CPD.
