Trib Prints Crap

In their ever increasing efforts to stay relevant and stir the pot of anti-police sentiment, the Tribune comes up with this "exhaustive" study:
  • Every five days, on average, a Chicago police officer fired a gun at someone.

    In 435 shootings over a recent six-year span, officers killed 92 people and wounded 170 others.

    While a few of those incidents captured widespread attention, they occurred with such brutal regularity — and with scant information provided by police — that most have escaped public scrutiny.

    Now, after months of struggles with Chicago police to get information through the Freedom of Information Act, the Chicago Tribune has compiled an unprecedented database of details of every time police fired a weapon from 2010 through 2015.
"...brutal regularity..."

Um, hyperbole much?

They break down all sorts of stuff by race, because that's the only measure that matters to the lib-tarded media and their followers.

Here are a few questions that might lead to another "exhaustive" Tribune study:
  • This year, HeyJackass.com says that shootings happen an average of every two-hours-and-three minutes. A killing happens every twelve hours (two a day). Could the Tribune "reporters" calculate those types of totals over the same 6 year period? (hint - it'll be close to three THOUSAND dead and well over ten THOUSAND wounded.)
  • Maybe the Tribune could do an analysis of how many "Shots Fired" calls are made to 9-1-1, how many go out over the police radio daily, and how many were actually legit?
  • How many shots total were fired? We can't recall a scene in the past six years that didn't have at least five or six shots, counted by witnesses or shell casings we picked up. Most scenes were ten or more though. Some really messed up scenes were thirty and forty at a time. We're betting those totals would be in the hundreds of thousands of rounds fired.
And after all of that "exhaustive" research, if the Tribune "reporters" break it down racially so that if Eric Holder comes to town, we can have that "frank discussion" he was always going on about.

Well I'm sure the libtard media can cover how two innocent people gunned down in two different parts of the city by ruthless individuals. So is the Tribune going to be responsible when additional victims are struck because police are forced to be fetal from leftist lies attacking officers. NO they'll blame the police again rather than these shit heads

This "study" is a complete waste of brain power.

Why don't they analyze the true cost of hospitalization of all gunshot victims and come up with a total that shows how much taxpayers are picking on the bill for annually?

Now THAT would be a good study to review exactly how much it costs per year that is being wasted.

In the past, there have been posts that say a gunshot victim costs an average of $250,000 - some say that is high. Well, what is the REAL number?

This is a huge tax on everyone paying for their medical insurance (I am sure these hood rats who get shot aren't carrying a Blue Cross Blue Shield card).

Maybe if people knew how much they were paying for these "victims", there might be more of a demand to stop the shootings. If nothing else, maybe those families who are involved in the shootings, should be taken off of benefits like food stamps, and "free phones".

Hey, if you got enough money for guns and bullets, you don't need any money to buy food! Start cutting benefits.

Someone has to start picking up the bill - besides us.

Almost 500 killed! 99% by guns! That means there are many criminals out there walking around with guns shooting and killing people. The police are trying to catch these people and when the police find them sometimes these criminal don't comply and surrender. So they might be shot by the police defending themselves from these criminals. Most of these shootings and murders happen in the black community. How are the police suppose to do their jobs to stop these people that don't surrender? Are the police suppose to let them go and walk away to shoot and kill again. The next time you see the police Thank Them for doing their Thankless job! That means you too Rahm!

Off topic: Those of you who want residency removed may want to read about this situation going on now in the San Jose, Cal. PD. Staffing is so low, that officers are being forced to work mandatory overtime (they work 12 hour shifts). Housing in San Jose (silicon valley) is pretty much unattainable for the officers, since the average home price there is about 1 million $. Officers are now forced to sleep in mobile homes in the parking lot of their station during their work week, because they are just too exhausted between their assigned work shift and mandated overtime (17 hour shifts, in effect) to drive home, which is usually a 2 hour commute. What a nightmare, with no relief in sight, because their rules don't permit lateral transfers. All new hires must go through their academy for the full ride. Younger hires leave once they get their academy certifications millennials do a lot of career shifting now), moving on to departments with better work conditions, leaving the older officers mired in a real mess.

And why aren't there any civil rights arrests of the police in any of these shootings? Oh yeah that's because the police are doing there job.

The Tribune is a joke. Even their web site is not worth the money. I head on NEWSRADIO 78 as they used to bark out that today is Back to School Day in Englewood and Beverly Vaughn a life long resident, one of the organizers was being interviewed talking about how they have a parade and celebrate the culture of the community and a cook out where they feed people.

That is nice. But I was laughing so hard at the concept until I remembered this is what the media does. They champion the abusurdity because the reality is so bleak. These media outlets who are the same people who have been endorsing one crooked, theiving politician after another for my lifetime and we wonder how come Chicago is slipping away? They are a big part of the problem as are the electorate. The Tribune, Sun Times, WBBM AM to name a few are like the band on the Titanic. Just keep playing.

"In 435 shootings over a recent six-year span, officers killed 92 people and wounded 170 others."

The only problem I see with those numbers is that 343 people who should be dead survived. At least 170 of those caught some lead though.

Hint for all those who don't understand police work:

When the police shoot at someone, it's because that person is a dangerous criminal committing some act that caused the police to need to intervene. With the exception of the extremely rare innocent bystander who gets injured or killed, and the infinitely more rare innocent person who is just murdered by the police, people who get shot by the police deserve to be shot by the police. They have done things to make the police shoot at them. The police shoot at them to protect themselves and the citizens from these criminals. This is all extremely obvious to the normal people of society. The liberal morons, criminal scum, families of offenders, BLMers, Father Fakers, etc. will never accept this obvious fact though. The media knows the truth, but "Police shoot guy who totally deserved it" doesn't sell papers or get viewers, so they push the lies of the "community" despite knowing it's all bullshit. The Democrats can't tell the truth about the real problem, unless they want to lose their voters.

If the police arrest a rapist and murderer, people are generally happy about it. Take the same guy and a situation where he doesn't go quietly in cuffs, and the police have to shoot him, and now the police are the villain. "Why did they have to shoot that poor, innocent, unarmed, black man?" He's still the same rapist and murderer, but the evil police killed him, so now he's a saint.

None of it matters. The only thing that matters is the false narrative. BLM is getting paid millions by Democrats to continue unrest to force policy changes they couldn't get in the legislature.

Look at Milwaukee shoot...black officer that had chosen to rise up from same ghetto to become an officer, shoots another black person that had chosen to to remain in the ghetto to be a drain on society. The video they claim to want shows a perfectly good shoot but they still riot.

435 shootings in 6 years...435/6 = 72.5 shootings per year.

I am not sure of the exact number of active officers, but let's say 9,000
72.5/9000=.008.

So .008% of the CPD on a yearly basis has engaged in a shooting of someone they were pursuing.

Not exactly the epidemic the MSM would lead one to believe.

Its about what should be expected from the media. Never, ever, point out the elephant in the room!
In that 6 year "study", term used very loosely. How many police officers were shot at? How many shooting were ruled justifiable? How many of the suspects were complying with the lawful orders of the police at the time they were shot? Why are the majority of them all one race? (And not some bullshit answer like the police are racist. You've beat that horse to death.)
Those that can will be packing up and moving. The tax increases needed to support the diversity is too much.
Stay safe Officers. The intelligent people will be asking questions the media would rather not answer.

Well I wouldnt mind the story if it resulted in more and better training and facilities, but Nawwwww. It wont. We have some good trainers, always have, but we have the same shit ass ranges we had 32 years ago when I started. They are a fucking embarrassment and we still dont have an out door range. The 2nd largest Dept. in the country and we still dont have an outdoor range. We have to use some small suburban ghetto's range.

We shoot handguns, or at least are required to, once a year in a 30 rnd course a moron could pass. I bet 90% of POs dont shoot one more round then that, and even then they come back boasting at how they shot 100%. Motherfucker! Lassie could shoot 100% on that course.

FBI guy joins the rest of the world and we get ARs, and they find really good guys to teach the course. Then they have them shoot 30 , now 60, rounds a year in a 25 yrd crap range. Many of them cant even take the weapon apart when they qualify because they never even carry it. This has always been an anti-gun Dept. which is why we shoot like shit and make shit decisions when to shoot. Always have, now? we simply have more bullets in the gun to spray with.

The blame falls squarely on administration and elected officials, who it seems would rather spend countless millions buying ghetto Mom'ses new 300's and trips to Vegas when the LiL motherfucker they never had a use for gets shot up by poorly shooting Police. Since guns are evil Police shooting them is evil, as is Police practicing shooting them to much. My God but this Dept. simply drowns in incompetence.

What's the murder rate in Chicago? What's the increase over last year? No one cares because they hired a black Supt so apparently he gets a pass on the surging violence and a pass on the cheating scandal because he might not know anything about stopping crime but he knows how to strip officers and throw them under the bus just fine. If you want a story research how many people resist arrest and fight with police and then look at what their punishment was. Maybe if they were actually held accountable it would be a deterrent for future behavior.

Let's do some exhaustive research. 9, 000 cops work one year. That is 9, 000 man years. In one year the Cops shoot 18 citizens.
9, 000 divided by 18 equals 500. Nine of 18 die. 9, 000 divided by 9 is 1, 000. Average, blood thirsty Chicago cop can expect to work 500 years before shooting somebody. Can expect to work 1, 000 years in order to kill somebody.

Hillary Clinton was not incorrect when she referred to this new breed of criminal as a "super predator". In fact, she was right on the mark. These gangs don't care any more. They have actually devolved. When Hillary used that phrase the bangers would shoot up a street with a mother pushing her stroller. They wouldn't shoot at a banger with a kid in his arms. They wouldn't spray a car on a crowded highway. Now, nothing is sacred. Shoot, shoot, shoot. Their are no consequences.

The Democrats, through their progressive programs and excuse making have created a
Frankenstein's monster. As it terrorizes the village, they ignore the monster and blame the villagers and the police for the monster's actions. Rules for radicals - blame the victim.

What amazes me is the complete disconnect the voters have for this simple idea. When the guilty are not punished, why would they change their violent ways? Things will only get worse. Can anyone that lives in Chicago tell me they feel safer going downtown today that they did 5 or 10 years ago? How about just walking around your own neighborhood.

The Trib and virtually all the media, with few exceptions, are following the directives laid out by the Progressive/Socialist bastards in charge - the Democrat party. It goes all the way up to the highest office and beyond.

Their goal seems to be a race war and total anarchy. It may be just me, but a race war seems like a losing proposition for the black populace. The assholes agitating for it are a small minority of African/Americans at large, and despite the weapons that they possess, they are seriously out-gunned when compared with the rest of the country.

If it comes down to it, and the law-abiding whites and blacks are forced to rise up, they only thing that will save the BL(a)M crowd is intervention by federal troops. I have serious doubts that the municipal and state LEO's would be willing to use force against every day Americans, especially attempts to disarm the general public. I think any military personnel would have the same feelings. So that would leave the newly armed IRS, Treasury, and Postal Service private army that Obama promised us to quell the insurrection? I don't think so. Those people all have families living among us and would surely have to consider retribution for their actions.

And more importantly, where will the "elite" people be hiding during all of this? And if it ends with a restructuring of the government, do they and their army of minions assume they would be able to just slip back into their old jobs?

Every time I drive down 59th to get to the Univ of Chicago Hospital, or South Shore Drive, or Stony Island, or 55th, or King Dr, or at night on the Dan Ryan, or on one educational ride when I overshot the xway - thru Englewood, I nervously look out for Police cars, just in case some cop might feel like firing on me...HAHAHA, just kidding.
In fact it is complete opposite.
Waiting for the Trib to research the non-police shootings for same time frame, complete with charts showing where majority took place. Not holding my breath.

I've done my own exhaustive study and have come up with this conclusion from citizen complaints and observations:

A trib/sun times delivery driver commits a traffic offense an estimated average of 10 times an hour during their early morning delivery while dropping off this anti-police hype and media spin. In the interest of accountability and transparency, it might be time to start documenting this via traffic citations. Maybe one of those traffic missions at the right time of the morning. The ones that the brass are becoming so fond of. Sorry to mr/mrs joe citizen if you get caught up in the net and receive a citation as well, but we have to be fair. you know, for transparency and such.

The tribune and scum times have a concentrated effort to demean, degrade and attack the police. This is all on the orders of Rahm and his media ass kissers to deflect the blame against the criminals, protesters, activists, and reverends he needs to kiss up to to get reelected. He has told the media to blame it on the cops not his criminal constituents and they have followed orders nicely.

'Do not shoot anyone!' Cops post fliers asking people to refrain from killing each other at next weekend's Brooklyn J'Ouvert

* NYPD posted fliers warning people to 'not shoot' anyone during J'Ouvert
* The 71st Precinct in Crown Heights posted the fliers Thursday
* Police also warned those attending festivities to 'not stab anyone'
* Fliers have sparked outrage among local residents who called it 'racist'
* Police source said fliers were a 'waste of paper' and will have 'zero impact'

A cop called another a scab for working VRI. Entitled to his opinion resenting fellow cops working OT, given the manpower situation. Not disputing that, but a scab is defined as a non-union worker and/or somebody crossing a picket line.

Working VRI is neither, Every cop working VRI is a fellow dues paying union member. Fuckwad. Prick. Asshole. Any variety of prejoratives you want call the guy, but whatsay save scab for its proper usage?

The main stream media is dying for several reasons. Chief among them is a total left bias.

Another factor is the media talks about things they have no knowledge of or interest in learning more about. If they did they would know that the US DOJ investigates every police officer involved shooting.

Most of the time the investigation is short and sweet as there is no problem.

If the Tribune has a problem with the lack of prosecution take it up with Washington.

Well I wouldnt mind the story if it resulted in more and better training and facilities, but Nawwwww. It wont. We have some good trainers, always have, but we have the same shit ass ranges we had 32 years ago when I started. They are a fucking embarrassment and we still dont have an out door range. The 2nd largest Dept. in the country and we still dont have an outdoor range. We have to use some small suburban ghetto's range.

We shoot handguns, or at least are required to, once a year in a 30 rnd course a moron could pass. I bet 90% of POs dont shoot one more round then that, and even then they come back boasting at how they shot 100%. Motherfucker! Lassie could shoot 100% on that course.

FBI guy joins the rest of the world and we get ARs, and they find really good guys to teach the course. Then they have them shoot 30 , now 60, rounds a year in a 25 yrd crap range. Many of them cant even take the weapon apart when they qualify because they never even carry it. This has always been an anti-gun Dept. which is why we shoot like shit and make shit decisions when to shoot. Always have, now? we simply have more bullets in the gun to spray with.

The blame falls squarely on administration and elected officials, who it seems would rather spend countless millions buying ghetto Mom'ses new 300's and trips to Vegas when the LiL motherfucker they never had a use for gets shot up by poorly shooting Police. Since guns are evil Police shooting them is evil, as is Police practicing shooting them to much. My God but this Dept. simply drowns in incompetence.

You got it, scab.

P.S. Since we can't strike, this is as close to a picket line as we're ever going to get. Therefore, those working despite the union asking them not to, should be considered scabs, or whatever word is closest to scab without offending you. Maybe you can suggest a new word for the dictionary to encompass those who have a no-strike clause, and who volunteer for overtime initiatives, against the wishes of their union leaders and presumably the majority of that union's members. Once that new word gets added to the dictionary, we'll all start using it. Until then, we'll probably stick with scab. I'll also call them morons, assholes, and pieces of shit for helping the city cover its manpower shortage by pretending we have more police than we do. Anyone who volunteers for any overtime initiative is enabling the city to mask a manpower shortage that affects the safety of every officer and every citizen in this city. But hey, easy money, right? If no one signed up for any of it, the city would HAVE TO hire more police, and fast. We all know that will never happen though.

I see an opportunity for some entrepreneur to open a shooting range in these areas to improve these bangers accuracy. To prevent an uproar this would lower the chance of unintended targets. Were the ones using firearms better shots it would lower the bad publicity offing a non target granny or 9 year old. There are some realistic operating soft pellet guns that could be used with minimal harassment from local anti gun nuts. Also the opportunity for local employment would be great. Think how survivors could be used to offer advice on drive by tactics, walk up surprises, long range pistol firefights, the opportunities are endless.
Of course the lifecycle would be short because some ungrateful customer would come in, shoot the place up and the city would shut things down.

Which is where you are right. Dept. members dont make the effort. Honestly I dont know how range officers can hold their lunch down watching most of these people shoot. This has never been a pro-firearm skills Dept., despite the fact the actual trainers are pretty good and a few are excellent. They are limited by the Dept.

And while everyone is wailing about how the Trib is beating up on us....again...and Im sure that was there intent. The hidden fact behind these numbers is we as a Dept. shoot like shit. And a lack of skills with a firearm means your also going to make poor decisions with it because you dont have confidence with it.

Watching a show on AHC about rise of Hitler, scary parallels between that and what's going on in Black America. Exact same type of propaganda and scapegoating unfortunately our own President is part of this agenda,

Every five days, on average, a Chicago police officer fired a gun at someone.

And every five days, on average, the Tribune looses a boatload of customers who are fed up with reading propaganda.

I wrote an email to the tribune reporters who wrote that story. Leftist cop hater, pro BLM reporter sent me back a response saying that all I am doing is lobbing insults at him and his hard working reporters. There is no question that Rahm is behind this as the trib editor Bruce Dold has been known to text Rahm on a daily basis. We must keep up the heat on these media rags like the trib and scum times as they are giving legitimacy to the cop haters and criminals.

Is it possible that all you did in your email was lob insults?
Facts. Lob facts. It's more effective.

That's childish.Why fuck with the working man.Some guy that's been pushing that god damn truck for 20-30 years.The same truck countless coppers over the years expected a free paper from in the wee hours. He is probably the one responsible for the parker, not the corporate asshole who spews the venom.
I get the point, but pick your battles.

I agree in that the delivery driver is not responsible for the content. However, they are a very important cog in the wheel of the printed press. The same press that never misses an opportunity to use spin, half truths and just outright bs yellow journalism to slam us and make us appear out of control, racist, and evil even when we act within the guidelines of the department and the law. They also never miss an opportunity to do some expose' about the police doing things with the above the law mentality, you know, like driving outside the rules of the road. Often times, in such investigations, the officer is responding to a call or assist (although they wouldn't relay that in their expose') but a delivery driver has no such authority to circumvent the laws just to make a timely delivery. And I would think that the watchdogs would be happy that we addressed this. Maybe they can do a series of articles on it and call it "broken wheel" or some nonsense like that.

They will never print our side, never print anyone who is supporting us. So, this is about all we can do. Forcing their delivery drivers to simply follow the rules of the road might just mean that their deliveries are a bit later and some citizens cant grab one of their papers on their way to work. Less people reading the smear job that they do on us on a regular basis is always a good thing. Printed media is already hanging on by a thread, maybe the small drop in distribution will help push them over the edge.

I don't live in the city, but even from a distance I could see the bias and the BS in the Trib article. Classic case of worrying about the splinter in someone else's eye (CPD)and ignoring the plank in your own (Chicago.)

What a hack job. And they have the nerve to call themselves "reporters." A trained chimpanzee could do better.

On average how often do reporters:
Drive drunk - all the time
Investigate a story - almost never
Lie to the reading public- almost always
Publish truths that are not politically correct - Never

Stop complaining and take control of your life. Don't sit around waiting for the department to provide you with training. There are some excellent training academies in the Chicago area/northern Illinois that specialize in firearms/tactics/first aid. Use your comp time/furlough to attend classes. Pay the tuition and ammo cost using your duty availability-that's what the check is for. Bring your partner(s). A number of us who are serious about our profession and developing our skills have done exactly this.

You need to understand that the minders at the Trib have budgets to maintain. It takes time, talent, perseverance and worthy subject matter to craft a piece of hard-nosed investigative journalism, all of which takes money. When money is tight and you have column-inches to fill, you get the amateurish pap that ran in Sunday's paper. When nearly every media outlet in the country has already been bashing the police for months, four daring heroes from the Trib decided to venture where they figured no reporters have gone before: How many times have the police fired their guns in the last 5 years? Gasp! Hurry! Prop me up, Matilda, I'm catching a bad case of the vapors!

Fresh! Daring! New! Tantalizing! Edgy! And almost like they surveyed a high school journalism class for subject matter ideas. What a colossal waste of time, money, ink and paper. (Obviously, little talent was expended.)

Talk about straining at gnats and swallowing camels.

But I forgot, it really is all about the money. It's about creating a splashy front page headline that will appeal to those looking to confirm what they already know. It will appeal to those looking for a convenient scapegoat. To those looking for a warm fuzzy instead of a cold prickly. To those who prefer to ignore the 900# gorilla in the room.

What about: How many shots in Chicago have been fired by civilians at other civilians? Approximately is good enough. Who fired those shots? Who was hit by them? And why?

Evidently the minders at the Trib are more concerned about alienating readers than they are with presenting them with the truth. Altruism apparently has limits, and at the Trib those limits are set by profit/loss instead of community well-being.

When I wrote the email to the tribune I indicated statistics that showed that the blacks in those communities have more encounters with cops, have more guns, and just have higher crime rates. I indicated the high number of black on black crime. I mentioned there is no deterrent for gun crimes because people like preckwinkle and foxx think the jails are too full. That line of reasoning was way too hard for the liberal media to understand. We must continue to attack the trib and sun times reporters. Each paper had a giant anti cop article. The scum times had the racial profiling dope smoking arrest by Dumke. The trib had the shooting story which was total bs. That was Todd Lighty. All their reporters are liberal Rahm sycophant ass kissers just like their editor Bruce Dold. Steve chapman is another one .

So a Federally insured, Federally regulated, institution is going to conduct business based on racial bias? Oh, this should be interesting.

What will be more interesting will be to see if the fiscal management of this bank equals that of black run cities like Detroit (Kwame, how we loved ya'), where embezzlement and graft were legion. Don't think that I'll be buying any stock in that bank any time soon.

My friend if you ever saw me shoot you'd see I wasnt complaining about "me". I was talking about the situation as a whole, and if you read what I wrote then you saw I assigned part of the blame to individual officers. But not all, nor should I. This has never been a Pro-training Dept. To say otherwise is absurd,and our range facilities are an embarrassment. The repairman at 025 should just fucking live there.
