They're Still Out There

  • A truck rammed into a crowded Christmas market in central Berlin on Monday evening, killing nine people and injuring about 50 as it tore through tables and wooden stands. Police said the driver was arrested nearby.

    Germany’s top security official said that he’s not ready to call the incident at the Christmas market an “attack,” but adds that there are many indications pointing to the truck crash as having been intentional.
The leftists, even in Germany, dare not speak of terrorism. That would be impolite.

Someone downtown noticed though...and they took STEPS:
  • The Chicago Police Department is adding extra police resources around the city as a precaution following events on Monday evening in Berlin, where a truck rammed into a crowded Christmas market, killing nine people and injuring about 50.

    There is no threat to Chicago or the surrounding area, but CPD will be adding extra officers at the Christkindlmarket at Daley Plaza, including additional foot and bike patrols, and specialized units, according to police spokesman...
Wow. Bikes and Foot Patrols. Versus a 25-ton semi-tractor racing along at 40 MPH. We aren't normally betting persons, but we're going to have to lay a lot of toothpicks on the truck winning that cage match. No offense to the Bike guys and gals who we have a lot of respect for - you're just out of your weight division.

A word of advice to anyone working down there - make sure you know what's beyond your target.

Just another example of how little thought goes into actually keeping citizens safe from terrorism.

Don't forget shooting at a motor vehicle when the vehicle is the only threat being used is a violation of department policy, you will be stripped asap! Just ask the 2 PO's from 004 this summer...

So far Chicago has been lucky, very lucky - to not have to deal with any of these nut cases.

And if Chicago Police were in Berlin when this happened, by our General Orders we would not have been allowed to shoot at that bus to stop the driver.....

Remember cowboys and cowgirls, if the only force being used is a vehicle, you must get out of the way and allow the driver to run over and kill innocent people because you cannot shoot at a moving vehicle if that is the only deadly force being used against you or anyone else.

This seems to contradict the "preservation and sanctity of life" dictums we are required to follow.... what do you do to stop a driver in a vehicle when he is using that vehicle to kill innocents? How would one use "de-escalation" against a fanatic shouting a-la-hoo-snack-bar driving a vehicle through a crowd killing innocent people?

Does anyone from OLA have an answer?

Now where is a good downtown coffee shop?

I've said this before here, so my apology in advance. One summer evening in the late 1990's, three sergeants met on Congress, in the Financial District, just before the fireworks. We talked briefly about the traffic plan, then one commented how it would be easy to take out hundreds of people in the park and tie up all of downtown with that attack. I glanced up and said it would be easy to shut the city down with one small plane flown into the Sears Tower. Someone else said, two planes, one at Sears and one at the Hancock would do it.

Now, if a few cops could have a casual ten minute conversation and come up with valid threat assessments, why can't the people who at in charge of our city's safety and planning?

Our Christmas market, our subways, our New Year's celebrations, should all clearly be considered terror magnets. Why did it take an attack in Berlin to get adequate security (or at least the PERCEPTION of security) put in place today?

First time comment from a long time follower, isn't there something on the CPD books about not being able to discharge a firearm at a vehicle? I thought that was brought up at SCC a while ago after the Nice incident. Although my PD here in the burbs discourages it we can engage if the situation calls for it and not violate general orders at the same time.

SCC tsk, tsk, tsk, your dreaming again. "keeping citizens safe from terrorism."?? We can't keep our citizens safe from the little shitheads we can see every single day hanging on the corner and you expect this shriveled department of ours to protect us from professional terrorists we can't see? I mean we're nearing 800 killings this year from the cowardly acts of our own people and folks, a dozen happy visitors run down at the Kris Kringle market is a drop in the bucket. Even if we saw the truck coming we're not supposed to shoot at it. We can't put a stop on it before hand without "probable cause". We can't search it without the proper requisites. Thanks to our castrated leaders the only thing the bike and foot teams are going to be able to do is direct CFD to the dead and dieing if they're not one of them their self.

The only way to stop an attack or slow it down is to have carbine officers patrolling with the weapon at the ready. The politicians are so goofy about the "optics" of officers with the weapons that they fail to realize that the same "optics" could deter an attack. The weapon is very effective and very accurate while also holding large amounts of ammo. New York has officers patrolling all over with the weapon. Why can't we? Have an OT program like VRI for carbine officers or start a unit to support SWAT. Let's protect our city with the tools we have.

I saw the Daley center market on the newcast last night with a few police on foot patrol and the proclimation police were beefing up patrols downtown. Sure, of course. The first thing I thought was good luck against a semi tractor trailer careening down the street. Police are not allowed to fire at vehicles and it would not stop the damn thing anyway. But they do kind of attract attention. It seems like a pro active zone blocks around Daley Center may be a better security method and stop those that are headed in that direction for inspection. Someone said it above, play for keeps as this is not the junior varsity as Obama would have his believers think.

Secondly, Trump is right. We must control our borders and we must know who is coming here. Angela Merkel will soon find this out in the fall when she will be tossed on the world scrap heap of failed leaders by the German people. Maybe she and Obama can sit on it and find other reasons to blame THEIR world wide failures for they are idiots.

Just thinking...if a citizen with a valid CCL happened to be on the scene in the early stages of an incident like this, what could said citizen do?

Before even drawing the weapon, scan the area and make sure there are none of those highly effective "Gun-Free Zone" stickers posted.

Take no action unless you drove a personal vehicle to get downtown. If you took public transportation or Uber, you've already violated the law by carrying a weapon.

By then it would probably be too late to take any effective action, so just do what the sworn officers are required to do. Move out of the way.

Pictures of the firearms officers posing with children at the market, posted on Northumbria Police’s Facebook page on the 9th of December, attracted more than 2,500 mostly critical comments.

Just remember Guys and Gals that if you do happen to see a Truck barreling towards a crowd of people at 50 MPH -- Do NOT Shoot at/into a Moving Vehicle.

Even if the intent of it being a Terrorist Attack is crystal clear **to you** like the driver screaming 'Allah Akbar!!' out the driver-side window while firing a MAC-10 from his left hand at fleeing pedestrians. Do not shoot at the driver.

After all, YOU could be 'mistaken'. The driver could be yelling something about the traffic, or at some idiot driver who had his Right Turn Signal on for six blocks. And that MAC-10 you **think** you saw didn't really exist because when police went back looking for it, it disappeared from the street. Plus, when 'Witnesses' were interviewed they all said; "The guy was unarmed and you po-leece shot him in the back anyway!"

A few years back a semi-truck driver by the name of Wells fell asleep while exiting the Ryan in Chinatown. His truck took out a bus stop, and a CTA Elevated station killing 2 and injuring 20 more.

Neither the bus stop nor the structure of the CTA facility stopped that semi from rolling up the escalator. Perhaps the CPD bicycles are made of some space age metal that can stop the inertia of a semi-truck, or is it the City just regards you as expendable?

How many people need to be killed by the vehicle before they are allowed to shoot? And once they have shot the driver how long will it take for Foxx charge them with one count of murder for each round fired?

NYC uses concrete barriers (off the flatbed with a forklift and put into position) and big semi-dumps full of sand to effectively block off possible access routes.

This sort of atrocity shakes one to the core -- while potato-sack Merkel (who let them in) "lays white roses in the victims' memory."

Only 34,000 of 1.3 million admitted to Germany have found any sort of work. The rest consider themselves "invited guests of Merkel," who should not have to labor, but who should be paid at least the minimum wage for their presence. The only non-productive "growth sector" is in hiring more "social workers" and security guards to deal with these people. Not good for the economy -- that's tax money being peed away...

The chances of being killed in a terrorist attack are about 1 in 20 million. A person is as likely to be killed by his or her own furniture, and more likely to die in a car accident, drown in a bathtub, or in a building fire than from a terrorist attack.

They are calling for martial law in Germany against the objections of that pos Merkel! What about here in chiraq where we have rahm our mayor protecting the criminal illegal invading immigrants? they are nothing more than criminals, As rahm gives millions to protect the criminals they become more and more emboldened, then we have toni and her idiot cowardly sidekick dart not even holding them but letting all black&brown criminals free to invoke more mayhem on the innocent people left in this pathetically run city/county/state/.

On an extremely happy note looks like law and order pro-police Jeff Sessions is steaming forward with the Trump train he will not tolerate the illegals being here and the rahm crew protecting them! Hope sessions locks up any elected who stands in the way of law and order "follow the law" rahm as your friend the criminal clintons found out!

excerpt:

“From his time as U.S. Attorney to his tenure as Attorney General for the state of Alabama, Jeff Sessions successfully prosecuted drug and violent criminals, corrupt politicians, and white collar offenders, and his record shows an absolute commitment to equal justice under law by putting the people first – not powerful special interests,” Carrie Severino, chief counsel of the Judicial Crisis Network – the group behind the push -- said in a statement.

best part "corrupt politicians" welcome to Illinois sir plenty of corrupt officials please start at the 5th floor city hall and walk across the building directly to tonis office plenty to do plenty to prosecute what a joyful day, and michelle obama we will have "hope" when this is quickly done and "hope" when you and your husband are out of office, the worst 8 years in this countries history, nothing accomplished, you and barry have spent billions in taxpayers dollars on trips, and how about having taxpayers pay for your mom to live in the white house that is more bullshit!

Fast approaching 800 and idiot Rhambo still calls this hell hole a sanctuary city. Webster's defines sanctuary as a place of safety. A place where 800 people have been brutally killed in hardly a sanctuary. More like a living hell, war zone, or third world country. Just because you criminally harbor illegal aliens doesn't mean you're a sanctuary. Get it right fool. I hope Trump cuts all funding to this city as quickly swirls down the shitter

These jihadist are computer savvy and I'm sure the blog is on the list of prescribed reading material for these terrorist as well as all criminals. What the Rahm, Tony, Tommy and the past 2 superintendents, along with the ACLU and the media have created here in Chicago, by their treasonist acts, is a target rich environment for terrorist, gang members and criminals. The gang members and criminals have exploited this target rich environment without any fear of the CPD. It's only a matter of time before the terrorist wake up and see Chicago really for what it really is, a place where you can get away with murder.

A ONCE GREAT CITY NOW IN THE DEATH THROES

During the past year, 141,000 former Illinois residents have fled the state, leading the nation in this ignominious category.

Also, among the largest U.S. cities, Chicago is fully responsible for 44% of the national increase in criminal homicides.

The population loss is attributed to corrupt politicians, exorbitant taxes, crime, bad winter weather and unemployment.. Most move south or west.

While Illinois is currently the 5th most populous state in the nation, it will soon be displaced by Pennsylvania.
Houston, TX will overtake #3 Chicago in population come the 2020 U.S. Census.

Sad. So very sad.

Look no further than Obama, Emanuel and Preckwinkle. May they burn in Hell with Richard M. Daley.

What the man does on his own time with his dogs has nothing to do with 016's crime. Tell Rahm and the Supt to send the proper resources there, instead of sending everyone and everything to the hellholes.. If you've ever worked for the man, you'd know he's a good guy and will make every effort to make it work for you, whether it's time due, start time, partners or DOG.

SCC - Our friends at NBC5 have decreed that the 2nd year of the "Chicago Rising" Star is now a New Years Eve Chicago Tradition. Amazing how quick a tradition can be established. What's even more amazing is that the constant anti-police drivel from Ch5 will immediately change if, God forbid, a simple gang disturbance/shooting occurs. Carol and Mary Ann will spew their indignant venom that CPD failed to protect their event. Special Ed will stumble and sputter nonsense. Rahm and Deano will be out of the country. Prickwrinkle will ask for more federal $$ for Cook Co Homeland Insecurity. Dart will spout off on his Metro PD proposal that will make him King of the Hill.
And what if it is a terrorist attack? The media's constant rant of de-militarization of law enforcement will turn to accusing us of being unprepared and ill equipped. Which is correct but it was due to their babbling and a POTUS who will probably have a talk show on
Al Jazeera once he retires.

You don't get the point. The goals of the terrorist is to destablize society,government and kill the infidel. Right now they may kill a few people with trucks, gunmen in night clubs, etc, the liberals don't think this is a big deal they say look at our gun violence and traffic accident deaths. But the goal is to get a nuke or dirty bomb and anyone who thinks that is not their goal or they won't use it is not in touch with reality. Sadly it will take a nuke in an American city to wake up the sleeping democratics -if that is possible-. Nip it in the bud.

This is the second year for the event - but it's a tradition because Carol and Mary Ann say so when they're not hissing how evil CPD is. And what if a mere gang incident/shooting mars the event? Or God forbid, a terrorist attack? Then the same clowns calling for de militarization of LE will change their tune to how unprepared and ill equipped we were. Special Ed will look to Granny Clampett for a response - but she'll be too busy with her girlfriend. Rahm will be in South America or Cuba. Prickwrinkle will demand more $$ for Cook Co. Homeland Insecurity to piss away on the West and South sides but claim it's for "youth jihadist prevention programs."

Won't someone please think of the children? We need to:

* Ban assault vehicles.

* Ban Semi-tractor trailers from being owned by terrorists

* Require licensing, mandatory insurance, testing and training before allowing anyone to drive a vehicle.

* Require a background check before being able to get licensed, tested, or even start the vehicle.

* Speed needs to be regulated. Why does anyone need to travel more than 5MPH?

* Fuel capacity needs to be regulated. No one needs to carry 200 gal of fuel.

* Vehicles need automatic pedestrian detection and avoidance systems implemented.

* Retrofit all old trucks with new safety systems.

* Keep the keys hidden to trucks when not actually driving them.

* We need "smart trucks" so they can only be operated by the intended operator.

* We need to restrict who can work on and repair trucks to prevent abuse and misuse of the vehicle.

* We need laws to prohibit trucks from driving on sidewalks or over people, etc.

That'll do it! See - just saved the Shitty from spending millions on bike and beat cops! Now we can give all that money to a rightful cause (defending illegal aliens from deportation by Trump).

Merry Xmas!

PPOs are not trained by a qualified FTO. There are not enough Sergeants and they are not on top of the POs, much less the PPOs. This lack of hiring and lack of leadership that should have put this front and center falls on Mayor Emmanuel & Daly, and Superintendents Cline, Hillard, Weis and McCarthy. None of these Bozos stood up to the Mayors and told them we were dangerously understaff. Training was non-existent and supervision was a myth.

The taxpayers will foot the bill one way or another, but had we paid up front we wouldn't be in the hole we are in now. The Mayors are primarily responsible, but the Superintendents were all willing participants. Scum, all of them.

What an utterly stupid comparison. Islamic terrorism is on purpose, those other things you cite are accidents. If you haven't already done so, I can see you converting to Islam in the near future. Since you are throwing out stupid odds, I'd say the chances of you getting your head sawed off by an Islamic terrorist are about 50/50? Are you by chance Angela Merkel?

In Germany, strict privacy laws prevent showing the full picture and name of the suspect they are looking for! In the suspect's picture, they blur out the eyes and only refer to the suspect by first name. That, my friends, is a sure-fire recipe for success in nabbing the radical islamic terrorist.
