Watch Out Chicago!

  • Saying he was "sick and tired" of the violence plaguing the city, Chicago's top cop announced Friday that thousands more law enforcement officers would hit the streets, lakefront and major tourist attractions, including Navy Pier, this Fourth of July weekend.

    Within the past 24 hours, three people had died and 21 more were wounded in violence across the city: this on the eve of the July Fourth weekend, typically one of the most violent holiday weekends of the year.

    On the heels of the violence between Thursday and Friday morning, police Superintendent Eddie Johnson called a news conference to discuss this weekend's policing strategy, and he called the level of crime in the city unacceptable.
This is what? The eighth time Eddie has been "sick and tired" of violence? Or is it the ninth?

He isn't pissed off enough to have demoted a single commander from their spots though. No Captains have been re-assigned. Not a single Deputy Chief, from Patrol to the D Unit has been removed from their spot.

And of course, the following:
  • giving anti-police political operatives his "all-hours-cell-phone," 
  • discussing internal disciplinary matters with that same cop hater, 
  • stripping an officer for a completely justifiable kick, 
  • lying through his teeth about what he somehow missed on video (even though a judge saw it plain as day),
  • sending minions around with the most half-assed explanation we ever heard,
  • and spouting off nonsense crap about "Policing at the Speed of Trust" and "building trust" while at least three cheaters are collecting paychecks for the most corrupted exam in history
 Anyone see the bill for this weekend? It's going to be a doozy.

Thousands more?

Where the fuck magical hiding place is this ignorant,
lying, classless buffoon going to pull "Thousands more"
Police Officers from?

His ass?

The mayor and exempts have intentionally broken CPD
beyond repair by pushing a narrative that
casts The Police as being out of control and now
they're fear-shitting their pants because they realize
that demonizing The Police = emboldening the death
cultists?

Dean Angelo was too much of a chicken-shit
to tell the truth when he had that captive audience.

The anticipated wave of violence over the 4th is just
a manisfestation of the war on police.

Police like you have no friends.
Keep your "Good Policing" to yourselves
as you drop reports in the tribal zones of
this city.

The anticipated hellishness of the 4th
will be a measure of vindication of not
flat out revenge.

Lemon Record and JaMal Green
are in close contact with the Superintendent
so that'll fix everything.

Sup-People are "sick and tired" of the "thousands" of lies and "thousands" of excuses for the shittiest leadership the CPD has had in recent memory. "Thousands" of officers are "sick and tired" of listening to an individual who has ZERO credibility and "thousands" of them have ZERO confidence in your ability to do anything besides consume "thousands" of calories and field calls from police hating activists. Hang it up already. The rhetoric is old and lame and we've heard it over and over a "thousand" times. Any tourist or suburbanite with half a brain hasn't traveled downtown in the last few years, especially on the Fourth of July weekend.

How sad that every day-off copper has to be offered overtime in this "World Class City" to maintain even a semblance of peace on this holiday weekend......
If it's true that there are almost 5000 extra on patrol, that pretty much equates to calling out the National Guard to stop the violence.

Hey people....or folks.....these ain't fucking Martians coming down to wreak havoc on this city......it's your sons, your brothers, your uncles, your nephews.......all living off the dope trade....but the media doesn't dare tell the truth.....wtf...they refuse to give even a remotely accurate description of offenders for any crime.....

Hal Baskin, gang leader or former gang leader whichever you prefer, had the cell phone number of the alderperson and district commander. He was twice arrested for felonies and released from the station without charges under orders from the district commander. Nothing new here for this town and for this department. Corruption in the department has always been here and it is either open or under the covers depending on who is the superintendent and who he puts in charge of IAD.

I am not sure how to take this. When you have many officers calling for everyone to be " fetal " and not do any proactive work, and crime goes up, then you call for the brass to be demoted, it seems to be a contradiction. I am not saying that either should or should not happen, but I think that this puts crime control out of the hands of the brass, many of whom should not have the job in the first place.

This department is in complete shambles. It is no secret that many people out there should not be CPD officers due to many reasons but continue to be protected. These folks ruin the job. Tes, it is hard to fire a cop for not doing the job but this needs to change. Many good cops carry a big load because of the dogs. I had been in specialized units where the privileged worked. They didn't do the job and had no shame.

Good Comments, I would like to add one more. What about the Brave Young Man,that "Stood Up" for the people being harassed on the CTA Bus ? Why didn't the Supt. get appropriate charges filed ? Best way to get people on the right side of the law, is to protect them. Charging that offender with Simple Battery, was an insult. What about charging the girl, that passed him the knife. No Charges ?

Gee, so now Eddie is 'sick and tired' of the gang violence. Well it's nice to know that he's moved on from it being 'unacceptable'. But what will it be on Tuesday morning, that he's 'deeply saddened' by the carnage?

If the Supt really IS 'sick and tired' of gang violence and it's 'unacceptable' then he should do something about it. Tell Rahm to get ready for phone calls and videos, that the ACLU and the Perpetual Whiners in the Professional Grievance Industry can go to Hell, that he's going let the police BE The Police. Or as William Shakespeare put it: 'Cry "Havoc!"...and let slip the Dogs of War!'

It's the only way to deal with savage Gangs. Liberal touchy-feely nonsense does NOT work. Holding hands and singing songs of love does not work. FORCE works, it's all gangs know and the only thing gangs respect.

You can't win their hearts and minds. You have to grab them by the balls -- then!... their hearts and minds will follow.

7/02/2016 01:36:00 AM

I've heard at least a handful so far.
I think they're bailing for several reasons:

The city advertised the position as one pay grade and hired them under that pay grade.
10 days into the academy the city says oops our bad what we really meant was your position is a different pay grade (7K less per year!)
The bells started going off in these civilians heads that they were dealing with a fucked up,untrustworthy organization.
Then Don O'neill talked to them and his condescending arrogance came shining through and they were about ready to lynch that bastard.

Also in the academy they were told, as the FOP has been told too, that they're coming to supplement the desk not boot bidded watch relief officers out. The city's master plan is to do just that civilianize as much of the desk as they possibly can. They just failed to let the civilians and the FOP in on that plan.

Due to the above a lot of the civilians are getting a less than warm welcome by the officers they're there to replace.

So in a nutshell the city has been completely untrustworthy and less than transparent to these civilians and the civilians are figuring that out in short order.

Hey Rahm and Don O'neill a hearty Fuck You!!

No worries...
There hasn't been a "Policeman" of any sort
among CPD commanders and captains for
at least the last twenty-five years... They
exist only as a part of Chicago's Political
Control Apparatus to kick back a percentage
of their pay for the privilege of wearing those
unearned train-tracks and oak leaves...

That's the problem with this job.
The overwhelming majority of
Blue Shirts are thinking it's legit.

They think that dutifully working
this nasty, shit-doo-doo job with
ethics, integrity, fairness and
morality, will somehow accomplish
something positive when they're
witnessing every incentive being
hauled up out of reach over the walls.

Kind of like filling the heads of slaves
with visions of "Sweet By and By..."

"Be good and don't get mad
over being mistreated and maligned,
you'll get your reward in Heaven."

It didn't work then and it surely
isn't working now in these supposedly
"enlightened" times.

Just keep on Policing like you have no friends.

It's killing them that they have no answer to it
other than playing the blame & shame card
because the people and folks who ARE the
problem in Chicago can't be held to any kind
of accountability because they have NO
compelling rules to abide by and no sense
of recognition of a contract with the rest
of society. They say it's society's fault that
they're a failed, nihilistic; lazy, vicious,
dangerous, pandered-to and corrosive
culture that needs to be kept apart from
the rest of everybody else until they're
finally able to look within and judge
themselves...

"De-Fund da Po-leece an' gibs us all
dey money, we can Po-leece owwa
selves!"

-Reparations or Bust.
By Any Means Necessary-

And when they burn through that
"Po-leece Money," guess what?

They'll be back and screeching
for MORE precious taxpayer treasure.

"We mighty cuz we LOUD!"
"Give us more of y'all money
an' we'll leave y'all alone until
it's time for us to have more."

88 arrested in raid to curb gang violence during holiday weekend

"Nearly 90 people were arrested Friday night during a raid aimed at curbing gang violence in Chicago ahead of the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

"Of the 88 people arrested, 76 are on the Chicago Police Department’s “Strategic Subject List,” which includes those believed to be most prone to violence. Authorities also seized eight firearms and served 20 search warrants during a raid across the 11th and 15th districts...

"Fifty-five people arrested are convicted felons and 16 are currently on parole for previous crimes.

"It was the second consecutive raid in the city since 27 people were arrested on felony drug charges in the 19th District earlier this week."

July 02, 2016

"Murray Energy Corp., the largest privately held coal miner in the U.S., has warned that it may soon undertake one of the biggest layoffs in the sector during this time of low energy prices.

"In a notice sent to workers this week, Murray said it could lay off as many as 4,400 employees, or about 80% of its workforce, because of weak coal markets. The company said it anticipates “massive workforce reductions in September.”

"The American coal industry, especially in Appalachia, has languished as cheap natural gas replaces coal as fuel for power plants...new environmental regulations are making many coal mines unprofitable to operate.

"The Central Appalachian coal price benchmark is $40 a ton, or half its level from five years ago. Almost all of the biggest coal producers in the U.S. have declared bankruptcy in the past 18 months, including Peabody Energy Corp., Arch Coal Inc. and Alpha Natural Resources Inc.

"Robert Murray, the controlling owner of Murray, is a fierce opponent of President Obama and a supporter of Donald Trump. In a statement, the company said the potential layoffs were “due to the ongoing destruction of the United States coal industry by President Barack Obama, and his supporters, and the increased utilization of natural gas to generate electricity.”

Any wonder why Morgantown, W. Va. has become the heroin overdose capital of the U.S.? A. despair B. need for money. Same thing downstate here with the meth plague, at least before Mexico took over bulk supply to help us out.

This impacts jobs on the coal-hauling railroads, all sorts of other industries too.

Hope against hope, my man. There is an inevitable devolution -- it just takes a while. First the good and productive, then...

Hell, I was seeing westside/southside behavior among current teen population Norridge/Ridgewood (sp?) High/Oriole Park like ten years ago or more. Gleaming white Foo Boo track suits, mock sex displays -- and worse -- in park to "shock," nine-year-old boys cursing at large grown men, and stay away from the Little League games if you don't like wash-your-mouth-out-with-soap filthy language from both kids and parents -- the lot jammed with brand-new cars, and I won't mention the little round sticker on quite a few of them...

Never forget the Park District dumpster full of brand new "Mayor Richard M. Daley"-imprinted "summer activity" free nylon backpacks full of fresh, wrapped, untouched rolls, cheese, apples, milk, etc. All unwanted, unneeded, all discarded by the young 'uns there.

New wave arriving? It'll bring its inevitable baggage along. Traveled enough miles and seen enough that I can't tell you other than the truth --

These days, if you run far enough, you'll bump into something. Turn around to see what it is, and it's what you were trying to get away from in the first place.

The new Obama/HUD "everyone has to live everywhere" policies are designed to force this situation.

If the 019 Commander didn't get dumped I don't see how he could justify dumping anyone. That used to be a nice neighborhood, now it's full of westside shitheads. But look at the Suntimes merit list, 019 Commander was made merit Lt by none other than Supernintendo EJ himself.

I never get out there so I gotta ask --

News radio report today, ofc. carrying patrol rifles at O'Hare -- did I hear that right? O'Hare? -- no longer have them in fast-act bags slung over their backs, but slung properly in front, "drawing attention from passengers." Say that it's in response to Istanbul atrocity/busy holiday weekend.

If so, good. If not, why?

Some depts. still big on the shotgun. Recent shooting at LA college campus, "citywide tactical alert," every other responding officer seemed to have one in the news photos, at least the ones who did not have M4. K9s don't hurt either -- visible, visceral deterrent, some people more scared of a dog than they are of a person...

Just gathering a little wool here...

Eddie is the Leroy P Martin of the 20teens,,,,,

Damn!

You broke the Internet with that
spot-on observation!

Everybody that was on the job
knew that Leroy Martin was a
blustering buffoon and a savage.

Terry Hillard was a closeted
hater who pulled the ladder up
behind him and bricked a lot
of decent and competent
black Sergeants and Lieutenants
because he was afraid of anyone
who could possibly outshine him.

He wasn't all that smart and he
knew enough to be dangerous.

Martin and Hillard were two sides
of the same coin.

Ask some old old-timers from the
50's and 60's if you can find them...

Wasn't it Leroy who said there was no room
on CPD for "free spirits," or some such?

Hillard was an unimaginative "Good Marine"
who could be counted on to do what he was
told and not use his rank/authority to help
anyone except those designated for such
help by city hall.

Eddie Johnson is just a continuation
of this horrid mismanagement.

CPD is nothing but a rest haven
for clouted cheats and lick-hitters
while you peed-on peon Blue Shirts
labor without rest of reward under the
supposition that it's all legit.

It ain't...

To the asshole that thinks his northside neighborhood is the place to be: take a good look, there are a lot of shitheads living on the northside. Your neighborhood isn't safe. The city went to shit a long time ago. Residency should have been gone 40 years ago! Take your head out of the sand! You aren't safe on the northside either!

Who will be the next band of honorable Captains promoted?

Is it just me? I SWEAR that I never heard a word about "The 1,400" or "lists" or "social inter-relationships of violence-prone groups" and so forth until I brought up the concept on here not too long ago.

Happened before. Will happen again.

We lead the way.

Not me, all of us.

Good to know.

What we need is someone who will tell City Hall what they want to hear, but in reality go in with a plan for upheaval. Someone who realizes that politicians are not only ruining the department, but the city and country as a whole will have to subversively take the position and act as quickly as possible to undo some of the more detrimental political moves. He or she won't be able to open our lost districts again, but the befuckery of personnel issues, the political policy decisions and the hack assignments can be undone with the swipe of a pen. The "Chief of Staff" is not the assistant to the Superintendent as he is touted, he is the Superintendent's handler put thereby City Hall. He can get a desk in a closet and be told what we want City Hall to be aware of. No longer would we be taking direction from City Hall, not answering to these politicians, but simply be informing them. We could get a lot accomplished with policy changes and political un-assignments, and move leaps and bounds away from the political oversight presently strangling the department. Yes, it will be a short stay, the politicians will utterly freak and hold backroom smokers and secret meetings in the sewer systems in the alleyways of their existence to figure a way to get rid of him. They can't just outright toss him out, that would be political suicide so time would be of the essence. Not likely to happen unless there is someone out there who can plan his or her retirement at their present salary, and take the spot in order to effect positive change and end the political strangle hole all while bringing it all to light in the public and media. Refocus the media onto the REAL culprits; the politicians.

Eddie QUOTA BABY Johnson. Worst Superintendent Ever. Dumber than a box of rocks. Crack rocks. Heaven help Chicago.

7/02/2016 10:27:00 AM

Eddie is definitely low on the IQ scale but he looks like a genius compared to his beau Lie-Tenant Fenner!
Clueless yet she wants to keep micro managing and fucking things up.
When will the Lie-Tenant exam scam catch up to her? Not soon enough.

Nothing New Here, Claudell Ervin did the Pray to Make the dope boys go away in 011.
Lorenzo Davis followed that same act in 015 with store front church prayer vigils on Madison.
Not to be outdone, Maria Maher pulled the same stunt in 014 conducting outdoor roll calls with the Gang Banger turned Reverend with his congregation on Kedzie & Palmer.

As a boss, he inspires me. I know him to be a fair and honest man, who doesn't make decisions based off of race and personal relationships and he disciplines fairly as well. Ok ok ok, I can't keep a straight face. This city is a fucking joke.

And it hasn't been for decades. It actually got worse under Daley. It was possible and probably still is to make some rank on your own if you study hard and have some luck, but the good spots and good rank go to the connected and blessed. I liked the comments on Martin and Hillard. Right on, but you forgot the white people shut out by Hillard. Martin did not like women on the job and was very open about it.
