Other Media

Just an FYI:
  • SCC - There are out-of-town reporters on hand this weekend to cover any violence that may erupt. Please let the guys and gals know they are equipped with boom mic's. These parabolic mic's are similar to the technology used in professional sports and can capture a whisper from a block away. The average civilian doesn't understand that sometimes gallows humor is necessary to stay sane on this job. These "reporters" also plan to live-stream police response on their websites as post shooting events unfold.
Just so everyone knows.

We're damned if we do were damned if we dont, meaning on shooting scenes the media expects you to act like a robot and show no emotion. If you laugh or joke or do whatever makes you comfortable in a non comfortable situation, like every human being does, than you're a racist jag-off, who doesn't care about that precious altar boy who was just killed. Now say you cave and take that same robotic attitude to a traffic stop then guess what you're still an asshole but this time for now showing compassion and acting human. 12 years on and I can count on 1 hand how many legit people I've helped. Two of those were helping an elderly citizen with car trouble. Very fucking sad. Until recently I've always worked, stopped for hand waivers and have tried to do right on this job, but the reality is there's a certain narrative in this country that wants to destroy authority for a socialist agenda to build a social utopian society. Sounds far fetched but read a book called Rules for Radicals. We took this job knowing we'd occasionally have to eat a Shit sandwich, but none of us signed up to have that same Shit sandwich 365 days a year. With this witch hunt every copper should be done. Do what you can to help out the few good people you come across and back up every copper you can, whether they're a dog or even if you can't stand them. Let's face it all we have is each other now. Now that I'm done with my rant I'm gonna leave mommy's basement and go have a Jack on the rocks and bang a fat chick. Stay safe and more importantly stay fetal.

How much acclimation and practice do you need to cover the upcoming anti-Trump riots in admittedly unprepared Cleveland? Cleveland has dept. after dept. pulling out from all over US, not going to send contingent of ofc. to help, not into totally disorganized situation.

Jeez, it's not like we're any farther below sea level -- or like New York is any higher above it. Used to have to run a lot down here before I went climbing in the Rockies. That don't apply to wavin a mike.

WTF?

Ofc. STFU and just point to personal phone for matters of, well, no public significance. Turn backs. Walk away. Time for Chicago hot dog and we ain't sayin' about the best spots.

CODE OF SILENCE! As Rahm puts it. Like after his kid got phonejacked and slapped around right across the street from the house...

They should use these "boom mics" on politicians. Would love to hear some of the comments that are said away from the podium.

And if the "reporters" are wanting a story so bad, why not cover "the Ghetto" and hear what all the gangs are saying on street corners or at the local fried chicken shack?

Would love to hear all the racist comments spewed at some of these places.

Seiser's illegitimate sin, Please keep up the good fight. In 12 years, those 5 legit people are 5 more than the vast majority of assholes combined ever have or ever will help in their sad lifetimes. A long time ago, my HRI told us to give ourselves a pat on the back once in awhile because nobody else is going to. Good advice then, and even more so now. As this country barrels full steam ahead into anarchy, know that there are people out there who value and care about what you do on a daily basis. Allow me to raise a Jack with you to the "thin blue line", which most out there will never be able to understand or comprehend. Stay safe.

I was a reporter before becoming a cop (actually, the skills of a good reporter and a good cop are pretty interchangeable). But in those days reporters were part of the scene and did understand not only the "humor" but were sometimes part of it. And knew what to write and what not to.

And cops were often good sources for stories -- officially and unofficially.

My how times have changed.

If you read the story on Chicago Violence in the N.Y. Times, you would have noted that they intended to send reporters to all of the hot spots to report on the violence. So there can be no doubt THEY ARE HERE. Now think about that for just a second or two; Rahm must be on meltdown mode! Here is the Smartest Guy on earth, running a city full of ingrate cops and citizens, who do not appreciate his wisdom and brilliant leadership. AND THE NEW YORK TIMES IS COVERING HIS CITY LIKE IT IS Mogadishu, Somalia; instead of appreciating it as: That Pearl on Lake Michigan! Fuck You Rahm, you little Freak!

Invent codes.
Remember 'bad' was the opposite of 'good?' Unpleasant. Wicked. Evil.
Nowadays, the definition of bad is 'Wow man, cool!'

Rewrite definitions.
Example. A banger is shot by another banger. 'Damn, shame' actually means 'LMAO!'
Since 'thug' is racist, 'damn shame,' say, 'poor kid/victim,' etc.

Numerical definitions work, too.

Fk the media! Who's responsible if one or five get shot in the hood? The city? Bangers' families? 'Damn shame.'

(OT) I need a little wisdom from the great minds of SCC readers! Rahm says during a quiet meeting he had on the southwest side that he was going to build 2 new schools on the west end of 008 costing multi-millions then today this article emerged about how major cuts are coming to existing schools:

http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2016/05/30/for-some-parents-moving-away-from-troubled-chicago-school-system-may-be-only-option/

But yet rahm says he was going to get the extremely ├╝ber rich George Lucas 1.5 billion in taxpayer cash to build his ugly eyesore museum to ruin our lakefront, yet he refuses to fund the police pension as required am I missing something? When Trump takes office will he order Feds to finally do a forensic audit in Chicago so we can finally arrest the real criminals?

If anyone encounters these folks remember to speak "off the record" and have your own recorder going on your smart phone.
The few I had seen recently seemed like decent people just doing their job, but it's the editors/producers airing or printing all the sensational aspects... for the ratings.
If you're drawn into a conversation just don't make up stories, tell the truth about your ever ranting merit-supervisors' demand for activity when you're running job to job or waiting hours for a short staffed D or ET unit to arrive at your crime scene.

Remember they are blaming the flunky blue shirt for all the trouble with the community.

The premise the MSM is working from is that the only reason the carnage in Chicago is allowed to continue at its present clip is because the victims are overwhelmingly people of color - if whites were being killed and wounded at present rates, by gosh somebody would do something about it. To your flank you have the ACLU, Justice, community organizers, et al. taking shots at you for being too hard on criminals because, again, they are overwhelmingly people of color, and then most civilians regard you with a mixture of trepidation and mistrust. I couldn't do it but I'm glad you can.

Remember that it was the vaunted paragon of journalism, the New York Times, that printed the name and address of former Ferguson PO Wilson. We all know how he and his family have endured the media lynch mob despite having been cleared of any misconduct. What purpose was achieved by printing his address other than making him and his family a target? In some ways a reporter/editor is just as dangerous - and as virtuos - as a thug.

Since when did your ability to police depend on your appearance......if you're going to talk about the 4th District you had better start with the 2nd Watch pathological lying coward Lt. K.O. He's forcing coppers to write movers that they didn't witness in order to boost low numbers on his watch. With everything going on in this city this guy is putting officers at risk merely to feed his own ego. That watch is a complete disaster which should come as no surprise with that Lt. steering it straight to federal indictments......no wonder the tact guys look disheveled, they're trying to hide when heads start to roll.

I'd rather have a Lt. that is out there with his troops and has their backs, than one who routinely hides in his office and fucks over his troops any chance he gets. Someone should remind the second watch Lt. K.O that it's really easy to keep that uniform looking sharp when you're sitting on the bench during the game.

Not one copper on that watch has been forced to write a mover they didn't witness. Not one. You must be a do-nothing malcontent who was recently assigned to a traffic/seat belt mission and came in with zero activity. And those missions are the idea of the Chief of Patrol. If you looked in your CO book you would see that.

What is wrong with you simpletons who say "call a supervisor" for every little thing? If a reporter is asking you a bunch of questions, you can't just ignore them? You need a supervisor to help you handle it? How the fuck did you even become the police? Do you want Daddy Sgt to tie your shoes for you while he's there too? Supervisors are there to supervise you, not to hold your hand because you're overwhelmed by the tiniest thing. If you can't handle a reporter asking you a few questions, what the fuck do you do at a domestic? What do you do when a defense attorney is hammering away at you with questions in court? Do you shit your pants and run to the court sergeant to help you? Please go find another job... one where you can't get other people hurt because you're afraid to do anything yourself.

Hey Lt. K.O, why don't you stay off the blog for a bit, you've embarrassed yourself enough on here. To recap the past few days, you've ripped good tact officers, told personal information about Sgt D.R, and talked shit about one of the best lieutenants in the Dist. I know the driving force behind these attacks is your own inability to be an effective leader, but you taking to the blog to voice your complaints "anonymously" is nothing short of laughable. So please, do yourself a favor, limit your internet experiences to creeping on female officers Facebook pages as you hide in your office and leave the anonymous blog complaining to the professionals.
