Ghoul Pool Time


The basic rules:
  • #1 You pay your toothpicks
    #2 You write your code name
    #3 Someone picks the Districts in random order
    #4 You wait for the natural order to determine a winner
There are local variations on this theme. Some pools pick a random starting box (slips numbered 1 thru 22 to correspond to the boxes) then draw District numbers from that box forward. We've seen arguments about what constituted the first "official" homicide - First 0110 RD drawn, first doctor declaration, etc. Make sure you know the rules before you pay your toothpicks.

The A/4 "Ghoul Tree" would've had
a LOT of "ornaments" on it this year...

The most since the 1990's.

And the usual aimlessly wandering swing-dicks,
hang-tits and talk-shits are still up their own
asses about The Police allegedly being the problem
in this town.

"Take the money out of Policing and give it to US!"
(Rahm has done it already!)

Supt. Johnson says more body cameras are coming for police. He has also identified 1400 repeat criminals who are driving all the violence in Chicago. Wouldn't it make more sense (and be more cost effective) to strap body cameras on the 1400 jag offs. As soon as they fools realize police are not the problem - maybe they will finally focus on the REAL problem and things might start to change.

13 homicides short of 800. Only a few days left to go with a weekend as the last hurrah. Historically New Year's Eve has a very low amount of people shot and homicides... Sunday usually sees one or two in the early morning hours after the parties are letting out but that will be too late because it will be 2017 then. So we need 13 in 4 days with cold weather on tap.. odds of it happening have been increased to 33:1. Not looking good

Secret calls coming in to area asking about MURDERs?

Seem a special little person at HQ is in charge of making sure certain murders stay unclassified as MURDERS/HOMICIDE until sometime next year.

Alot of death investigations. Like the bloated water filled bodies with crushed skulls or the crispy xwives with orders of protections.

Luckily we have so many new detectives that you could actually give each one a shooting from the holiday weekend. Just picture it NEW DETECTIVEs 10 to 20 shooting stabbings,etc given to you to investigate even on your days off. Plenty of video,DNA, and laughable witnesses.
aim for the 5% clearance rate.

Anyone know what the clearance rate is in the city for homicides?

WOW. But no worries, the shootings are about to stop with latest press release stating body cameras coming near you a year earlier than planned. Funny and not so funny shit, they are in survival mode now my brothers and sisters.

If they don't care about the lives of others, why do we have to care that they want to kill each other. They aren't betting on "if" bur are betting on where the 1st 0110 happens. It will happen.

Or you walk into another disheveled apartment to find 2 bodies on the bed, blood everywhere, beaten to death...
Or got called to an alley for "something suspicious", only to find the body of a young woman behind the dumpster, naked, strangled.....
So do we make fun and joke about a Ghoul Pool? 1st death of the year? You betcha......because the alternative to the daily carnage we see in this city would be to cry.....yes, we harden our hearts......it's the only way to get through seeing, day after day, what some people are capable of.......

Not upset enough to support police officers. Not upset enough to make sure criminals stay behind bars.

You obviously are not or never have been a cop.

A gallows humor is a defense mechanism that is developed in certain dangerous lines of work.

It happens or the individual could go bonkers and eat a gun barrel.

Sort of like how cops try not to take their work home with them to the family dinner table at the end of the day unless it is an honest to goodness fluffy feel good story that makes everyone smile.

If you can't wrap your head around that simple concept and explanation, stay off of Cop Blogs you obvious civilian.

No, what's truly sickening is that CPD retirees will be sans their promised "free" lifetime healthcare in a few short days. Meanwhile, these same pieces of shit I've been making wagers on for almost 3 decades have had unlimited free (for THEM) medical care since they were hatched, many being treated more than once for being shot prior to the much anticipated incident that will ultimately, permanently punch their ticket.

I'll make another wager right now: you live in your parents basement after 6 years of college and voted for HRC on November 8th. Any takers? I'm willing to go 2 to 1.

But on a more snarly sarcastic note...

What of the plausible rumors of the V/C dicks of old
surreptitiously taking out life insurance policies
on known, notorious and long dead shit-heads?

Wide-Head Ed (looks through two separate keyholes simultaneously with a
vacant lot between them) says 1400 hard-heads are the main movers
of Chicago's violent crime.

Heh...
And Rahm has bitched from day one about there being
no way to successfully extract money from Policing
except by cutting the throats of Policemen, retirees
and widows.

There's nothing wrong with parlaying/gaming shootings,
maimings and killings and such as long as the right m/fers
get shot, maimed and killed.

Right?

We all need to sit down and properly war-game these
disposable m/fers for our own benefit.

why do we think they deserve it? Because we don't buy this systemic oppression, and justification bullshit.

you live by the sword you perish from it.

but who remembers anything from that book anymore?

Instead, violent criminals in cities like ours all suddenly get a pass because ... poverty... because... racism... because...school funding, programs, job training, blah, blah, blah.

I went to procedual justice2 for what? To be lectured by kiss ass kool aid drinking clout babies who no longer have to make arrests, answer calls, or put hands on people, that felons want us to earn legitimacy and give them a voice before we can do our jobs because if there isn't trust in the community and we don't "make good deposits in the community bank with acts of kindness, " we won't be able to do our jobs legitimately in the eyes of those we serve...

street stops 90 percent down. Homicides back to levels straight out of the days of urban decay. Don't touch them, don't talk to them, don't look in their direction. They can have it.

I grew up not wanting to ever get arrested for fear of hurting my family. I figured out how to have my fun in the streets when gangs were everywhere. I figured out how to avoid the police and avoid trouble.
I didn't make excuses for my choices if I made stupid choices, and even less so for the gangbangers and assholes running around fucking everything up, because they deserved an asskicking, they deserved to go to prison and if they still didn't get it, then they deserved to die in the street because they kept asking for it.

Making wagers on who will lose their life is sickening.

-----------------------------------------

And the street lights outside of Pesavento's.

Pete,skipper,albert,mags,JJ,larry,gary,charlie,chuckie,rex,greg, and on and on. Too many RIP's there.

When men could be the police when they wanted to be and the F Troop when not.

Watch parties at Edgars grove, 130th st truck stop [whoo hoo] and on and on.

Great times.

Remember that one time a quiet northside district got the first one? Thats like an old Clydesdale winning the kentucky derby.I had a fast young westside quarter horse of a district and ended up with jack shit. Nothing is a lock in life or in this case death.

"To the posters here who find our humor "sickening".......
Evidently, you have never walked into a house, crawling with roaches, no beds, no clean clothes, no food in the fridge....5 real skinny kids under 7, no momma home, lord knows no daddies anywhere around.......knowing momma out somewhere spending the $630 of food money on crack....
Or you walk into another disheveled apartment to find 2 bodies on the bed, blood everywhere, beaten to death...
Or got called to an alley for "something suspicious", only to find the body of a young woman behind the dumpster, naked, strangled.....
So do we make fun and joke about a Ghoul Pool? 1st death of the year? You betcha......because the alternative to the daily carnage we see in this city would be to cry.....yes, we harden our hearts......it's the only way to get through seeing, day after day, what some people are capable of.......
When you have walked the proverbial mile in any one of our shoes, THEN you can call us names.....

======================
This post is so spot on.

I have a customer I have known for 25 years who I have got to know very well, as well as his two sons who are police in another major city.

The stories I have heard from them are just unbelievable. They would make the most hardened hardass break down and crack in the civilian world.

People don't realize the toll it takes on the individual police officer, dealing with what they see on a day to day basis.

As you say, one can not really understand it, unless one has lived it.

Making humor of it is often a way of keeping your sanity.

Making humor of tradgedy is pretty typical in areas such as the Military, Police, Fire or Dr's and Nurses where you see the best and worst of society, sadly too much of the worse.

It's also typical of social justice warrior type snowflakes to get on their high horse and complain about it.

To all the men and women of the CPD, you're Supermen & Superwomen.

One of you just took their own life.

As previously posted, please reach out to your brothers and sisters in blue, if you're thinking of taking your own life.

Your brothers and sisters need you and we citizens need you.

You're not alone.

-Citizen

Ah the ole ghoul pool. Never got to win that one. But one I was lucky to get once was the ole hanging pool. Remember this one wheel gunners. Thirty one days in a month pick your favorite date of the month. Viola.

Take the "defense mechanism" and "coping mechanism" bullshit away please. I have never been to a homicide scene where I felt one bit of empathy for the deceased,white,black,brown,or other.

Go to your safe space/corners snow flakes and let those that know how to handle the job fucking handle it.
