Victim Supports Police

An unbelievable piece from Channel 7, actually supporting the police:
  • A day after dashcam video of a violent confrontation between a woman and Chicago police in 2011 was released, a woman who witnessed the robbery who led to the confrontation spoke publicly with ABC7.

    Martha Osborn was in a McDonald's in the Portage Park neighborhood on May 25, 2011 when Floyd May allegedly robbed the restaurant. He then jumped into a vehicle driven by Tiffani Jacobs.

    Osborn then called police and gave them a description of the vehicle.

    Police pulled over the vehicle driven by Jacobs and dashcam video shows the officers throwing her to the ground as they arrest her.

    CPD Supt. Eddie Johnson called the arrest "concerning" and has ordered a new review of the two officers, who were previously cleared of wrong-doing five years ago. The officers have been relieved of duties pending an investigation.

    Osborn said police did the right thing. In recalling the robbery, she said that May grabbed her to use her as a pawn while he robbed the McDonalds, telling the cashier "If you don't give me the money I'm going to shoot her." She said he had a gun in the left side of her back and said, "Gimme the money, gimme the money, the cash, the cash in the drawer."
She also comes up with this amusing quote:
  • Meanwhile, Osborn is reliving the robbery and is haunted by the image of the man who robbed her.

    "The girl had a gun, my wallet and the money from this restaurant when she was stopped," Osborn said. "Her mother is spoon feeding a banquet full of bologna to the general public."
Ms. Osborn is too kind describing it as "bologna." We would have said it was a heaping steaming pile of horseshit, but the other media outlets are eating it up with two hands because Rahm told them he needs cover for the cheating scandal that might ensnare most of his current command staff.

A commentator raised an interesting point - why isn't the Superintend-tool out telling everyone what exactly is "concerning" about the video? What policy was violated? What law was bent? What training is necessary to correct some perceived transgression of the Use of Force paradigm that necessitated the stripping of two officers FIVE YEARS after being cleared?

Shouldn't this be an educational opportunity, not just for the public, but for officers as well? Or is the lesson being taught something along the lines of "Don't do shit lest Rahm and Eddie stick in up your ass to cover for a lot of exempt girlfriends and IAD cheaters."?

Bravo Ms. Osborn!! Rotten Mayor Emanuel and his door-mat, Eddie Johnson, newly imposed Commissioner of CPD. Taxpayers beware, its all on the up and up...NOT. Reinstate the 2 CPD Officers to their previous assignments....and let Rahm find another way to improve his dastardly legacy. WTF.

Another question. WHY does a current story report that the CONVICTED felon 'allegedly' robbed the place?
The officers in the video are being tried and convicted in the press, using all sorts of inflammatory language, but the guy who was CONVICTED of the armed robbery now ALLEGEDLY did it?

What's fucking concerning is cheating on a promotional test, especially when you get a score that is mathematically impossible and your boyfriend is the boss. I hope there is no thin blue line on this scandal, if proven someone cheated, the punishment should be harsh, and please media trolls be all over it

Did the stupidintendent bother to consult with
any Police Use of Force experts before moving
to strip those Officers?

You know... A rush to punish as a matter of political convenience.

When this Lieutenant Exam Cheating Scandal blows up,
hopefully Eddie and his squeeze will end up shackled
together wearing brightly colored jumpsuits while
being slow walked with a hard wrist crank into the MCC.

Playing to the misdirected supposition that Policemen
aren't supposed to knock down people who ARE a threat!

The higher the threat, the LOWER the subject!

Cue:
Subject sitting in a freshly blasted and still smoking
crater with only their ears and feet showing...

Or the car door or fender has one really big and deep dent.

"I fights da Poleece!"
>Ka-THUD!<
"Oh shit... Maybe I don't..."

"Monster Mode"
keeps Policemen from getting hurt.

Fuck this "duty to retreat"" noise with these wild-assed,
unceasingly violent, un-Policeable, uncivilized, ungoverned m/fers
grinding their multi-generational axe of perpetual aggrievement.

An inconvenient truth.

Policemen are supposed to be extremely dangerous to criminals.
That's how we survive on these streets.

Every swinging dick and low hanging tit with an agenda
is fixated on curtailing The Police while the
armed wing of Dude Inc. swaggers with impunity.

"Muhfuk yaw'l!
We do wat we do!"

** Promoting a m/1 to the rank of Supt. when he didn't even apply for the job to pacify these P.O.S. black lives matters assholes to try to save your deeply wounded political career rahm is blowing up in your face!

** and unless this great citizen spoke out ,because she was the actual victim, to defend and PRAISE our brother[s] who did their job, the city of Chicago and all of the mayors corrupted puppets including himself, no one would believe it, everyone would rather believe it be of concern , because you say so? F.Y. & puppet (Supt!!)

** What about THE REAL CONCERN HERE? The CHEATING SCANDAL that rahm keeps trying to cover up and NOT SHOWING ANY CONCERN! didn't we, aren't we supposed to , in the middle of taking "ETHICS TRAINING"----Oh and by the way:

Part 1 = yes no yes yes
Part 2 = yes no yes yes no
Part 3 = no yes no no
Part 4 = no yes no yes

So we're only entering the last week in April, we're well over 1000 people shot and it's not even summer yet. BLM's got what they wanted yet the #'s continue to rise at a record # not seen since the 90's. & ( where are the rev's & protestors now???)

THANK YOU to the victim for coming forward to support the P.O's She has balls to say it like it is.

So Eddie is saying multiple exempts reviewed the video. Multiple States attorneys have copies and viewed the video and Nobody noticed that the officer were wrong?

No sergeant stripped for not issuing a CR#?

No watch commander in the hot seat?


Never forget the Police Board is FUL of half wits and rich folks appointed by the RAHM-BELINA.

Again throwing officers under the bus for doing POLICE work that never looks pretty on the camera.

Hey media when you FOIA all those document go to the area of the report that list supervisor. You may even see some exempts currently running this joint who viewed the video and know it was great work!

I believe the statue of limitations for excessive force is 2 years. I'm kinda of confused what exactly Eddie is trying to accomplish here. The Union should be all over this shit. 5 years later you get stripped for a case you were found to have done nothing wrong where the offenders both took heavy time. Nobody can sue so that's a plus but Wtf. The video shows nothing except a copper using one hand to take down a violent felon. So much for Eddie having our backs!!!!

Warning! War story time ! I still remember when I first came on and worked days in 014th - some call at a Walgreens of a crazy man. Arrive to find about a 40 year old black guy stark naked standing on the conveyor thing by the cash registers. Scratch that he had socks on - just socks. Absolutely naked otherwise. Eventually we got a whole shitload of cops there, took him down very gently actually and had to carry him out, you know horizontally, because he was wacked. No one hit him, no one even raised their voice.

All the young black girls had gathered by the exit by then and what did they say as we walked past them?

"Whys theys gots to treat him like an animal????"

Rahm Emanuel is a poor excuse for a mayor. Certainly he is not a stand-up guy. No respect here for Rahm or his small narrative that fosters his own ego. Rahm is a prisoner of his own, self-centered mentality. Guess, after Daley robbed the city blind, Rahm needs to foster his own corruption and victimization of others so he will not be out-done by Little Richie. He too wants to be remembered.

Five years later and Rahm is prepping the accountants at Fast Eddie Burke's GhettoLotto® to get that big check ready for his prompt payout and press release.
(Cleveland just paid out $6 million for the shooting of a armed assailant who pointed a pellet gun at an officer.)

Our support comes from very few on the outside, even less from the inside.

I thought "concerning" was his PC, this is really bs, keep the mayor happy comment. I thought that before this came out because he already described another incident as "concerning." A one word answer like that sends a message to me. It doesn't give any information whether he agrees or disagrees with what he saw. He would have gotten much more points from the left for saying it was wrong.

Oh Eddie your trying be be like the great OZ, a master of illusion, but really now would this be a master of deception trying to deflect the media from your not doing anything about it the test cheating scandal? If you were the "real police" you would demote them immediately and call the doj in for a full frontal assault on chaeting, becuase your the man to clean it up! OK I jest you will do nothing and coppers are remaining fetal wondering who is the next from long ago you will present to the media hordes to put them 24/7 in the spotlight for doing nothing but their jobs and doing them perfectly following all the rules! How can you do this? Are you really just another pawn star for rahm? Who is pulling your puppeteer strings?

Eddie you got in and many thought you were the "real deal" but we have been dealt a really poor deck of cards the only cards remaining are the jokers and how many exempts faces are on them sir?

Eddie Johnson sounds like a typical low IQ, dogass on media interviews. Rahm picked him for a reason. Eddie will throw anybody under the bus for Rahm to further their own political hack careers. The lowlife female robbery suspect received an eleven year sentence for that incident five years ago. I'm sure "The Puppet Cheater" will make sure he gets the ball rolling to get her out of jail so she and her entourage can shoot and rob some more. This job is becoming more of a farce every day.

And that is why everyone should get their suit against these offenders filed, with an eye toward payment when/if they ever successfully sue or get a settlement 'gift' from the city. Victims have rights, too, despite the current media hype that's only concerned with offender's rights.
