The War on Cops Continues

  • Chicago’s yearlong shooting rampage picked up steam over Christmas weekend, leaving 61 people shot, 11 fatally. Seven were killed on Christmas Day alone, more than on the three previous Christmases combined, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    Gangbangers targeted each other’s holiday gatherings as if in deliberate mockery of the season. Two young girls were shot while sitting in a van at 11:30 p.m. Monday by a presumed gang rival of the younger one’s father.

    So far this year, 4,334 people have been shot in Chicago: one person every two hours. Almost all the victims have been black. The police have shot 25 people, virtually all armed or otherwise dangerous — less than .6 percent of the total. That disparity between civilian and police shootings hasn’t stopped local Black Lives Matter activists from continuing to claim that it’s the cops who are the biggest threat facing Chicago’s young black men today.

    If there’s any silver lining to the violence, it will be if it acts as a wake-up call regarding the de-policing and decriminalization movements sweeping the country. Chicago is Exhibit A in what happens when the police back off from enforcing public order, having been told that maintaining control of the streets constitutes racial oppression.
Special Ed claims we're "still policing" despite all evidence to the contrary:
  • street stops down from 159,000 in 2015 to 21,000 in 2016
  • property crime skyrocketing in formerly "quiet" areas
  • arrest down tens of thousands
  • a 20% homicide clearance rate
The list is near endless, and the price is paid in bodies.

Leave it to a New York reporter to tell the truth about Chicago crime. Then again, Rahm's email shows that stories for print go through him first. Let's see if 2017 can be worse than 2016. Is 900 a no-brainer? 1000 not out of the realm of possibility?

"Ideally, mothers and fathers would rein in their children and instill discipline and self-control. But in the absence of two-parent homes, it falls to the police to maintain civil society. Chicago will not put a lid on the growing violence until the police believe they’ll be supported in their mission of bringing public order to the thousands of upstanding, hard-working residents of the South and West Sides."

From the article, "Ideally, mothers and fathers would rein in their children and instill discipline and self-control. But in the absence of two-parent homes, it falls to the police to maintain civil society." Little do pols, SJWs, or other
do-gooders realize the truth in the above statement having never had to be the parent of those without a moral compass. How many times have we answered a call where the plea is, "make my child go to school", "my child won't listen", "make my child do this" or "stop my child from doing that". And we should have to be the parent. Then we meet the same person standing on a corner/curb hanging out pitching drugs or riding around looking for another victim to shoot. God knows the pols, SJWs and other do-gooders want no part of that dirty business. So it falls on the beat cop. And without the beat cop keeping order in a bankrupt community the results are clearly evident.

“Former Chicago top cop blames city’s spike in violence on politicians' interference with police business”

It would appear that McCarthy didn't know that political meddling in CPD is business-as-usual here.

It's too bad no one warned him that the job of superintendent includes taking all the blame when things go bad, and giving all the credit to the mayor when things go well.

Could he really have been that naive? Had he not heard about Chicago politics before coming here? Did he think, "It can't be that bad"? Did he believe that he could overcome it?

"....having been told that maintaining control of the streets constitutes racial oppression....."
-----------------------------------------------------
THIS is BS. Time to get rid of all the "do nothing" Mayors and City Councils. Chicago may be Exhibit A, but there are other cities run by Democratic Mayors and councils that have become Exhibits B,C,D and E as well.

Just watched a segment on San Francisco and their growing "Homeless" situation. Scratch that place as a vacation idea.

Time for people to take back the streets OR close down the streets and let Chicago and other places become a walled-off prison area like in "Escape From New York".

There are ways to turn around Chicago, but it takes some real leadership and that is NOT happening with who you have in place in the Mayor's Office, the bloated City Council, and the Command Staff of the CPD. (not to mention the Cook County "all-stars")

The answer is not "spend more money", the answer is, "Crack down on this mayhem and crack some heads." Can CPD even field a task force that is up to the task? Equipment, attitude, and training wise?

And, I like the idea of cutting off ALL entitlements when "the children" act up and cause damage. The reason nothing is stopping is that there is no consequence for bad behavior.

The latest "Mall Brawl" action demonstrates to all suburbanites that the violence can come right to where you shop.

Eventually, they will have another one of these "Mall Brawls" and some old people will pull out their guns and start firing. That's when all the ghetto Moms will come out and ask, "Why did they kill my babies? They were just funnin' "

Don't think it won't happen? That is the only thing that will make it stop.

More out-of-touch politicians need to be replaced. The last Election was only the beginning.

And there is no going back. The type of policing necessary to control chicago's gang problem was a voluntary service provided by a few cops who went above and beyond their job description. You wanted body cameras because you thought police were the problem and you wanted to monitor our actions. Ehhhhh guess again we weren'the the problem, and now there is no going back with body cams. Sorry liberals, get use to 800 dead a year, unless another uptick in medical technology can save the gangbusters who don't deserve to live anyway.
The real problem is the culture in the hood that values nothing but cold hard cash, a gangsta attitude, and the idea that they don'the have to obey even the most minor laws (not parking in the middle of the street, walking on the sidewalk, acquiring a driver'side license). Add to that the decriminalization of every law by liberals who protect the hood culture under the guise protecting it's residents from racism. This is what has led to your 800 homicides, 98.9% who deserved their fate.....and yes evil people do deserve to die.
So you ignorant liberals are to blame because you assume all your viewpoints come from some moral standing that hillbilly conservatives could not possibly understand.
Add to all this the WAR ON POLICE which has caused us all to recoil into a stance of protectionism. We make good arrests, the judge throws them out because to many black men are behind bars. We make proactive arrests(above and beyond our job description) which take criminals off the street who can no longer commit crimes, and then you decriminalization those laws. Then we enforce laws dually enacted by liberal democrat city and state law makers like selling loosies (in nyc) and you want us thrown in jail. Then the media attacks. They run 24/7 news coverage on it slanted towards the criminal and hating on police never understanding what it takes to keep the hood under control. Then they publish our names and our addresses so blm can show up Thursday our door. Name I think I'll stay in my car.
Then last but not least WEEEEEE are sick and tired of the corrupt political culture in this city and department. We are sick of triple merit hacks running this department. The merit system is the single biggest problem facing this department and it's destroyed moral more than all the above mentioned combines. We are sick of people teaching in the academy with 4 years on the job, we are sick of commanders secretaries getting promoted. We are sick of the incompetent being promoted because this guy's drandpa promoted this guy's dad and now he is returning the favor. We are sick of being told at detectives test, "if your only here for a merit spot, sign your paper and you can leave."
We have had enough. Lower merit to 15% and actually make it real MERIT. Please.
All this leads to one thing. A less effective police force who for their own self preservation is not doing what is necessary to police big city gang violence. Can you really blame us?

Here is some additional food for thought. It used to be that if you wanted to get away from the bad elements (i.e. the ghetto pieces of shit) then you simply moved away or went to a shopping mall further and further away. But that is not the case anymore. Look at what the HIP Mall or even sometimes Woodfield Mall looks like. The ghetto element knows that the Chicago police are handcuffed. They also know that the handcuffs are even tighter on the suburban police departments.

Time to clean up the streets for a while - give the communities a chance to heal and move on. Call your state rep and demand stricter punishments for when guns are used in crime. 1st gun offense = 10 years (no time off for good behavior), 2nd offense = 20 years (again no time off for good behavior), 3rd offense = 30 years (again no time off for good behavior). If someone is injured the sentence doubles, if someone dies the sentence triples.

No surprise here. Among Chicago's 77 neighborhoods, West Garfield Park has the highest per capita murder rate in the city. When you look back to the late 1960's, ground zero for rioting has always been within a half mile of Madison St. and Pulaski Rd.

If you count cumulative criminal homicides by CPD district since 1966, there is a clear cut leader, hands down: FILLMO'. Fifty years of non-stop bloodshed and 011 still leading the pack. In earlier years, the runner-up was always da Deuce: 002 (with the 'jets) later succeeded by 007: da 'Wood.

Years ago a former police chief in Philadelphia ran and became mayor
Chicago needs a law and order mayor I can think of several retired superintendents
Phil Chuck Garry or Jodi all would have a good shot of winning
Commissioner Chuy Garcia came within points of winning. Had his own people backed him. Mendoza lityle loui and the other turn coats. He would have won easily



You're crazy. Cline got canned because of the Abbate video. Jodi and Garry couldn't handle the politicians when they were supt.'s. There's no way they could deal with them now. Remember Jodi not answering Shortshanks' calls? Garry was hated by the black alderman. He wouldn't get the black vote. Not sure who you're referring to with Chuck. I've been 25 years and don't recall a Charles. Are you talking about Ramsey?

You can hire 5000 officers. It's not coming back in a generation. Congratulations Ron. Your lying and duplicity destroyed the toughest police department in the Country. Not even Daly's corruption ruined it, but you did.

There is your legacy. You are a colossal failure.

They had an anniversary service for Quintonio LeGrear and Bettie Jones. This service was covered by all the Chicago media outlets. During this service, community activist Eric Russell said that Bettie Jones was " executed". The officer involved in this shooting should archive these tapes. It shows that he can't get a fair trial in Cook County if any criminal charges or civil charges are brought against him. He also should sue Eric Russell, any organizations that he represents, and any news media outlet that published this slander aimed at him.

Clearance does not mean an arrest or someone being sent to court!

I believe the actual amount of arrest and prosecuted is in the 8% range.

The other 12 percent are for cases that the fricking video in the interrogation rooms does not record any of the interview!

The state attorney says no video case is shit 1 free murder. Why doesn't the ass hat from media affairs send the news people one of his awesome emails.
it has happened more than once no video of interview murderer set free case closed.

heaven forbid the clouted going after DAVE the detective, he has folders of dirt that go way back to the Terry hilliard time!

The people in this city hate the police too much to ever elect a former Supe as the Mayor. the black community would never tolerate it, especially a white one. A former black boss would have a chance because he would be controlled by the Democratic Party but let's be honest, as long as things stay as they are, no matter who is Mayor or Supe, there is no turning this around! As long as the police are perceived as the enemy, as gangbangers and thugs coddled and martyred, the city streets will continue to run red with blood.

You want to turn this around? Start with a strong leader who is backed by ALL the politicians who support tough law enforcement measures, as well as a judiciary that holds offenders accountable to the fullest extent of the law. Rescind the stupid Isr and go back to the simple contact card, hence telling the ACLU to go fuck themselves. Once we are again supported we start a zero tolerance broken windows policing again,targeting gang members.

I propose making gang activity and gang members domestic terrorist, charge them federally, and give them real time, use conspiracies and rico as warranted.

Revamp this department with real promotional tests that you receive the results to via scantron immediately upon submission. Merit, which I do believe in, should also be overhauled and transparent. The list of who is merit should be posted and a person would only be eligible for one merit bump for their entire career. You should have 5 years in grade at each rank before you are eligible for the next promotion.(nobody with less than 5 years as a Sgt. should be eligible for Lt. Etc.)

Nobody with less than 5 years should be able to leave patrol, period!
Revamp the exempt ranks, there are many useless and redundant spots. OCD doesn't need a Commander for each section of their unit.

"The answer is not "spend more money", the answer is, "Crack down on this mayhem and crack some heads." Can CPD even field a task force that is up to the task? Equipment, attitude, and training wise?"

If you practice what you preach, now is the time to send your suit to the cleaners. You want to look good on TV as they walk you out of your house in handcuffs.

WRONG ANSWER.
The answer is to get RID of the losers like Rahm and put some real leaders in.

Too many people are taking a "Stay Fetal" position. I don't blame you based on the idiots who are in charge, but that is NOT the solution.

What was meant by that post should be interpreted as - get some real leadership in and tell ALL CPD to get tough. Crime would evaporate. AND - no settlements with Ghetto Lottery ticket holders.

A new perspective is needed and you are not helping by letting hacks get voted in - including the State's Attorney's position.

With all due respect, can you retirees shut up about gun court? The proposal has only been floated like 200 times. Do you not understand that we are done working? It's simple math, I'll explain, hold onto you walkers. 0+0=0. Gun arrests (0)+gun cases in court=0. Paradoxically, there seems to be an actual correlation with 0= continued employment, lack of officer's serving jail time and lack of federal lawsuits. My point being that 0 arrests negates the need for a gun court. Besides, most judges side with the criminals anyways. Mind blown?

I feel the spirit of Sam Kinison upon me:


Class 36-01 Day 1

Good morning, and welcome to the Academy. I'm Inspector Terguson, and in this first part of your orientation, I'll be going over some of the history of the Department. You know, a lot of people tend to think of history as being static images and bits of information about the past, but not me. I hold history as something very sacred. Sacred. The way a farmer looks at the earth and he holds it sacred. The way a Christian takes the Bible and he holds it sacred. The way a lot of your parents used to hold their X-Box sacred. That's just how I feel about it. So why don't we dive right in, and discuss the single most defining event to ever take place in this Department.

Now . . . could someone tell me why in 2019, the Chicago Police Department overthrew the power structure of the Democratic Machine in our city, which inspired other officers across the country to do the same thing?

Cadet Lightfoot: The failure of wholesale Affirmative Action appointments to curb the gun violence in the underserved segments of the community led to an ongoing erosion of confidence in the meritorious, but beleaguered regimes at Headquarters and at City Hall.

(uncomfortably long silence)

Inspector Terguson: Is she right? I realize that's the popular version of what was going on back then, and a lot of people like to believe that . . . I wish I could, but I was there. I wasn't a house mouse, hiding out at Headquarters, hoping I was right, creating spreadsheets about it . . . I was up to my KNEES in BLOOD, with nightly gunfights in the Ashland Corral, going up against the Amish and slugging it out with them, while PUSSIES LIKE YOU WERE ON FACEBOOK, TWERKING IN YOUR SKINNY JEANS, POPPING SOME MOLLIES AND LISTENING TO ALL OF THOSE GODDAMN JUSTIN BIEBER CDs!!!!!! OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Cadet Mellon: Hey, Inspector, take it easy!
Most of these kids weren't even in grade school back then. As for me . . . I'm not a fighter, I'm a lover!

Inspector Terguson: Weeeeeellllllll . . .
I didn't know you wanted to get involved with the discussion, Mr. Helper . . . But since you want to help, maybe you can help me, okay? Do you remember the second term of the Obama Administration? When a righteous, by-the-book bust never meant fuck-all in terms of prison time because of the activist shitheads on the Cook County Board? So how come we didn't just storm out from 35th Street and level all the Section 8 housing BRICK BY BRICK AND START LAUNCHING ALL THE SHIT FOR BRAINS ASS-HAT LIBERALS INTO THE GODDAMN LAKE? HOW COME, TELL ME WHY! SAY IT! SAY IT!

Cadet Mellon: All right, I'll say it! Because Rahm Emanuel cared more about being a vote pandering pussy wimp, than he did about ALLOWING REAL LEADERS TO DETERMINE DEPARTMENT POLICY AND LETTING US DEAL WITH THOSE AMISH BASTARDS!

Inspector Terguson: Good answer. Good answer. I like the way you think. I'm gonna be watching you.

You and the others who so brazenly post here about 'staying fetal' better sure as hell hope not! I can say with good authority that if/when Johnson gets thrown under the bus, there will be another OUTSIDER who will be brought in to manage the CPD...unless Rahm plans to move up Kilpatrick (AKA Granny Clampett). Every currently active CPD Officer should be working to prevent this at all costs, even if it means going back out there and managing a little activity. Your union is weak, and the right outsider could come in here and start pushing people out the door for lack of initiative. Don't think it cannot happen. It will be far cheaper for the City to replace a bunch of the old timers currently on the books with lower payscaled newbies.
