Distraction Ploy Fails

This guy just blew a lot of credibility with the rank-and-file:
  • Chicago Police Department Commander Kevin Duffin said, “Kids make stupid decisions — I shouldn’t call them kids, they’re legally adults. But they’re young adults and they make stupid decisions.”
We don't know who told Duffin to say this....oh, who are we kidding? Of course, Rahm told people to downplay this. But then the alternative media got a hold of it and the video hit Drudge and YouTube tried to ban it but not before it was saved and uploaded hundreds of thousands of times and a White House Petition was started demanding Federal Civil Rights charges.

And then suddenly, at the 47th-hour, charges were suddenly approved by Foxx's office, negating everything about "stupid decisions."

If you remove a mentally handicapped individual from his suburban environs, restrain him in an unknown location, taunt his parents via cell phone messages, record and post what can only be described as sub-human behavior in a 30-minute video, you aren't making a "stupid decision." You are making a concerned and conscious effort to show your disregard for another human being and recording it because you are that confident of avoiding responsibility.

Now where could they have gotten that idea?

And they didn't "cut" his scalp. They tried to scalp him. Now is it okay to call these youthful sociopaths savages?

Kevin Duffin, Chicago Police Commander (OMG) Duffin always followed whomever would further his career, Signed. 20 year detective who worked with him in 007 and then in an area when he got promoted to Sgt and came to the area. Funny thing he was never a Detective. Good guy to drink with though. He is as shaky as they come, big talk no balls in front of the administration.

As if the superintendent of police in this city couldn't make himself and his command staff any more ineffective and, unfortunately, straight idiotic, they did. In an attempt to downplay what is an obvious horrific crime they stopped to an alltime low with their cowardly weak statements in regards to the "kids" that perpetrated this "mistake." The Chicago Police Department and the city in general is a fucking embarrassment to the country. Regardless of your political opinion, and this isn't political, the incident is disgusting and, once again, shows how much of a pandering clown our superintendent is. It's shameful and it would be laughable but, at this point, it's far beyond laughable. It's an epidemic of incompetency and cowardice. I'm glad the mayor, the supe and all of the command staff that fall in line with this shitshow sleep well at night. They've truly facilitated and embraced this type of behavior regardless of their constant back pedaling in their comments. Good night assholes

And these fuckers will smile to your face and say politics and public opinion doesn't drive policy. Sad part: if this fucking thing wasn't on social media first where it gained traction, there would have never been any real charging at all. Now the whole world knows how fucking stupidly inept this dept is and how it changes its decisions according to the way the political winds blow.

I'm pleasantly surprised by the charges but feel that the "powers that be"(Rahm, Fox and FatHeadEd) were trying really hard to downplay this and avoid hate crime charges.
With videos that go viral the way they do nowadays as hard as Rahm tried he couldn't control this one so he wound up doing an about face and agreeing to charges.
This still reeks of racist double standards though.

It's clear to anyone who sees the video what the intent and result are but instead of some type of even handed attempt at justice we clearly get excuses for subhuman behavior and justification of something vile based on who committed the crime

SCC I work down at 311. I'm an injured P.O. who got hurt in the line of duty. Short of it is when I heard Duffin with his kids comment my heart sank. I knew Duffin as a P.O. is 007 back in 1996. Had great respect for the guy and when I heard he made CMDR I said to myself "Now there's probably one guy who actually earned his way to the top."

When he came out and said that comment I about died. What is it once you put on a white shirt and get a gold star you lose all reason? It is what it is. Why the excuse making? Enough already. So after Duffin's comments went public the 311 center went crazy with calls from all of the country. We had people calling in from EVERYWHERE. It was crazy. People were calling up demanding these animals not only be charged but be charged with a hate crime accordingly. Kevin Duffin's comments enraged so many people. This not rumor; I spoke with several plus several other PCO1's as well (they are the new civilian call takers).

Anyhow after a few dozen calls we started directing them to the CCSA office and told them to ask for KIM FOXX by name and vent their frustrations towards her. I don't know if it had any influence on anything but I'm hoping so.

All I've got to say after hearing Duffin's comments is this is the day and age we now live in. This is the mentality of the double standard incumbent upon us. If it was white folks "they" would be burning down buildings and rioting in below zero weather.

To anyone looking to come on this job my advice is this; Don't. Both my ex-wife and I and police. I'm still on the job; she retired. We both talked her daughter (my step) out of applying for this job. Back in the day coppers passed the torch so to speak. Not anymore.

Well I am hoping our efforts at 311 helped sway KIM FOXX in doing the right thing.

To all my fellow coppers out there working the streets stay safe.

Money quote:
"Cultural rules required the kid take a beat down for his offense no matter how much he might previously have been a member of our crew. It was a painful thing to witness, knowing that the kid thought and wanted himself to be so much one of us that he would repeat a word reserved to us exclusively. And forever thereafter was the reminder that you are not really one of us even if we do have sleepovers."

He is a smart guy and he knows that comments to the media mean nothing and the investigation comes first. Never go out there and tell everyone that this is 100 percent a hate crime and what they should be charged with. He let his detectives do their job and let the charges speak for themselves. A lot of loudmouths and know it also here. You let the detectives do the job and when charges are approved you comment on those types of thing if proper.

Prob not the best time to bash. This kid had a "mental disability". You know, kinda like the ones many in the ghetto have because the doctor signed off on it and now he gets a check. The kid got picked up by hill who was his friend and they all, including the victim went out to steal cars. They ALL went back to the west side and THEY ALL got high TOGETHER. They then started to do what happened on the video, which isn't right but there is much more to the story. This wasn't just a poor defenseless kid with a severe handicap. He was really high when this video happened and was tweaking bad when he was found. He went out to steal cars, hung out with the undesirables in the city and wasn't exactly an angel in his past. His "handicap" should be taken just as serious as those in the ghetto who are diagnosed with "learning disabilities", "anger issues" and "ptsd" just so they can collect a check. Yet people are raising tens of thousands for this kid on go fund me. But hey, just like everything else on this site this is all just hearsay and rumor...

It's a disgrace when a Commander in the Detective Division is already acting as Defense Attorney for criminals prior to them being charged. CBS national news radio was already downplaying the seriousness of the hate crime aspect citing Chicago Police Commander Duffin saying it was likely youthful indecretion. As we all know had the roles been roles been reversed in this incident you would have Michigan Ave closed already.
Just for kicks, I listened to WVON radio last night to get their slant on the whole thing. Talk about pissed off people. To have these children charged with hate crimes is just more of the white man stepping on black youth. You must understand racism can only go one way. It's not possible for a black person to commit a racially motivated crime toward white people because black racism doesn't/can't exist.

Never met the man BUT I have given press conferences before. With that being said....sometimes the less you say the better. His job was to give some details of the crime, info on the investigation and any info regarding the identity of any suspect (s). These things are not really intended to GIVE INTIMATE DETAILS about your VICTIM OR specifics on the CRIME and never on your investigation angles or tips being pursued. do not put your spin on anything. Shoot straight and keep it neat and orderly. CPD tried to spin this as something is WASN'T. A minor crime. I heard a rumor that the FBI was sniffing around 011 regarding this issue and a certain W/C and LT were being held to task by the 011 Cmdr. Not too bright to try andifferent downplay such a crime. This exposed CPD and Chicago. Criminal element is out of control and the nation seen it firsthand on social media.

The bosses and powers that be were going to slide this incident under the radar with no hate crime. But international media attention caught it. The City and CPD would have been skewered had they dropped it. The local media would have let it slide but some alt-right media outlets caught it.

Since this is racial incident, where are Jesse, Sharpton and pflegler?

That's the Third criteria to be promoted above Sergeant.

First and second is cowardice and incompetence.

(As pointed out in another comment -- "...once again, shows how much of a pandering clown our superintendent is. It's shameful and it would be laughable but, at this point, it's far beyond laughable. It's an epidemic of incompetency and cowardice....")

Sorry, I have such a jaded view of CPD but come on, watching this crap on TV makes you wonder "who is in charge?"

Here is something to ponder - this isn't their "first rodeo". How much have these four done before screwing with this handicapped kid? Robberies? Drug possessions? Assault? Any priors?

If none, I wonder how much was swept under the rug?

None of their teachers saw any "wacky behavior" out of them? Great School system!

I'd ask about their parents, but we all know they were probably raised by either single-parent Mommy, or Auntie, or Grandma. Family structure an influence on behavior? Evidently so.

Cut the welfare to ALL their immediate family. You raised savages, not people, you don't deserve assistance.

Coddling this behavior - in ANY way, is the wrong thing to do. Make an example out of these four. Doesn't matter skin color.

Next case.

Hey Duff, It might be time to let go. You have been a good guy and a good cop for about 35 years and I know you've always tried to do the "right thing", whatever that is. From now on you'll be seen by the unknowing only thru the prism of your unfortunate comments. I figure your mistake was trying to be all things to all people and thinking you owed the politicians more than they deserve.
Anyway the retirement checks are great and maybe the administration can find u a spot with the Park district, Streets @ San or whatever. They owe you for taking this heat. You'll need a job to keep you off of 111th street, time catches up to all of us and your health is job#1. Keep your chin up, look everyone square in the eye and be proud of your great career. None of these Internet trolls has a notion of what you've seen and done. All the best from a retired Englewood Ranger.

Let's call it like it is, Fat Ed and Duffin both downplayed that crime in the media accounts. That is exactly the reason this department is where it's at. Duffin has been a three time merit hack that obviously can't think on his own . Hence the reason he is merit !! That's right, it's not hard to figure out, merit hacks are the ones who MUST follow what they are told due to their indebtedness to the powers. But doing that, takes away credibility and respect. Both these idiots have lost that with the the Police who deal with this shit everyday. I would love to see their explanations continuously repeated on the media just like the our Police shootings, guaranteed a quick resignation for both !! One more thing, regarding Hanhardt, that man was tough as nails, along with most bosses and Policeman of that era, this sugar coating would NEVER have been said about a horrific crime like this.

Big surprise Rahm let Duff give an interview, but even worse was the Special Ed scripted news conference that didn't support any of the facts. Corrupt Department.
This story was buried until it hit Breitbart (many thanks to whoever contributed the tip) and Rahm was consulted immediately, as with most news related incidents. There still was some other shaky Merit Boss somewhere in the HQ chain that had their fingers in this also.
All this drama needed to end the Rahm-Special Ed shame, after the prelim today there won't be any news until Sept when the case gets tossed or plead out with 3 mos supervision at most.

I really believe he was told what to say by powers that be. yes, they all have to play politics to keep the gold star, but can any of you honestly say that you would have gone off script and gone against the 9.5 digit midget or Special Ed?

Don't know Kevin and could not care less what he's done to you or for you in the past but you, sir, are as full of shit as he was when he made that idiotic statement. THAT was a match being tossed into a bucket of gasoline (though I'm sure that he and whomever had his hand up his ass making his lips move didn't think that far ahead.)

If he wanted to cool things down, he should have simply stated the facts of the case and state that the investigative results have been turned over to the State's Attorney and then poured himself a large cup of STFU and gotten off the stage.

It is what it is and we don't need Duffin, Rahm. Special Ed nor anyone else to explain it to us. He wouldn't have dared tried to downplay it if it had been White on Black, so other than pandering to the savages and trying to gain some support for Tiny Dancer, why would he say it?

Retired long before the ACLU's ISR forms came into existence, but from what I understand the stop and investigation that the original beat officers made is not in line with present day policy. A white kid wandering around an all black area of town, wearing shorts and flip flops on a freezing winter day, appearing to be disoriented. From what I have been led to believe by the ACLU nit wits there was no reason for the stop. Can't stop a person on the basis of his race, can't stop a person because of the way he is dressed. None of the business of the police, no crime or suspicion of a crime about to be committed, just an eccentric person minding his own business doing nothing criminal worthy of suspicion or investigation by the police. Thank god that the beat officers disregarded the policy and did a stop and investigation. In a few hours the kid would have died from exposure. All the lib nit wits have essentially taken away any common sense that the police operate under. Of coarse they all think they know more and could do a better job than any experienced officer who actually works the streets. Our own leadership has agreed with the ACLU nit wits on this matter. Thanks officers for using your intuition, common sense, and your police experience in this case, you did us all proud, great work, your not fetal your just forced to operate under new rules that make sense only to the know it all nit wits of the ACLU and the mayor.

You raise a valid point. Chicago and the media are attributing the "hate crime" motive to the WHITE victim being "mentally disabled". At no point in the audio do the offenders refer to the victim as a "dummy", retarded or requiring "Special Ed". They do order him to say "F-ck WHITE people".

The incident occurred in the 3300 block of W. Lexington St. in the violent, virtually all black 11th CPD District. If the offenders wanted to taunt or torture people with less than room temperature IQs, they need only walk out the door of the Covington sisters' apartment. Odds are high that the next person randomly passing by could be classified as a "dummy". In that ghetto neighborhood, their potential "dummy" targets would be like a huge school of fish in a barrel. Indeed, who would be surprised if all four of the offenders themselves could be accurately described as imbeciles? No Mensa members there.

This politically correct BS has to be stopped. The arrogant city and media obviously think we are stupid. As you accurately wrote "They tortured him for one reason-he's WHITE".

Granted de Blasio is a delusional flaming lib asshole. Still we'll trade you the heartless dirtbag Emanuel any time straight up.

Be careful out there, brother. As the CPD blue-shirted grunts say in this horrible anti-police climate: STAY FETAL!

Hey Duff, It might be time to let go. You have been a good guy and a good cop for about 35 years and I know you've always tried to do the "right thing", whatever that is. From now on you'll be seen by the unknowing only thru the prism of your unfortunate comments. I figure your mistake was trying to be all things to all people and thinking you owed the politicians more than they deserve.
Anyway the retirement checks are great and maybe the administration can find u a spot with the Park district, Streets @ San or whatever. They owe you for taking this heat. You'll need a job to keep you off of 111th street, time catches up to all of us and your health is job#1. Keep your chin up, look everyone square in the eye and be proud of your great career. None of these Internet trolls has a notion of what you've seen and done. All the best from a retired Englewood Ranger.

Oh boy. Kevin may have been a good cop and your words and advice are kind. However, yeah, that's what happens when adults act stupidly...they face the repurcussians. Kind of like what he said about kids, right? How this translates to anyone owing duffin jack shit is beyond me. I hope I don't go senile that fast after retirement. This isn't even a true fucking heater case...the offenders put their heinous crimes on video with their faces and voices. Even if they beat the criminal case, play that shit at your civil hearing and you're golden. He wanted D-commander pay and the easiest slam-dunk case falls in his lap and you want to give him a blowjob? This poor victim deserves better - this case should be a privilege to do great things with. Too bad he got a guy that lost the big balls he may have had heading the investigation.

Kids make mistakes? This was pure evil which is what you get when you refuse to hold parents accountable and their children have no values or sense of right and wrong instilled in them these dumb asses know nothing about politics or who Trump is, their racial comments and f Trump comments come from the stupid spoon fed garbage that their selfish missing in action parents and family members post on facebook smackchat stupid social media instant gratification lack of decency miserable waste of oxygen parents education for their offspring. While I agree they weren't born this way and it is learned behavior in my book once you are 17 its all on you, so glad they were 18 and I hope they receive the harshest sentence possible, what if it was your son that they kidnapped? The only mistake was you opening your mouth but your statement did make me write Trump as I too am fed up with the evil greed corruption throw our police under the bus instant gratification selfish political hacks that run our city and wonder why the blood bath won't stop, it won't stop because corruption doesn't get to win you reptiles, in the end God wins Just a citizen with eyes that see and anger at a system that created this mess. Praying for the family of the victim and praying for his recovery. And praying for all of you in blue, I don't blame you for how you feel and I can't imagine being in your shoes you are warriors and heroes stay in the fight we need you..

Duffin's idiotic comments at the press conference reminded me of a quote from the movie "The Kingdom." It is the part of the movie when the USAG meets with the FBI director over the FBI Director's decison to ignore the USAG directive not to send agents to Saudi Arabia to investigate a terror attack on US workers.

Here is the abbreviated quote from the FBI Director to the USAG:
"......once we clued into the fact that life (in Viet Nam) is finite, the thought of losing it didn't scare us anymore. The end comes no matter what. The only thing that matters is how do you want to go out? On your feet or on your knees? I bring that lesson to this job. I act, knowing that someday this job will end no matter what.

You should do the same."


Duffin has decided to go out on his knees.

Here in Rockford IL, it's open warfare. Pretty much any black teen or pack will jack your car or stick you up if he sees you are alone and easy pickings. The cold weather has been no deterrent this season. Car-to-car shootouts every day. I carry both outside and inside my home, and barricade the door at night. The local media try to hide the race of the suspects. The town boosters boast that "diversity is our greatest strength." It's a disgrace that our political establishment allows this, and that it is career/social kiss-of-death to discuss it honestly.

Not to add insult to injury, but how do the parents of an 18 year old with the mental capacity of a 10 year old child, allow their son to hang out with these $#!tb@g$. The OFFENDERS in this case are lowlifes and have probably been lowlifes for a long time. Either the victim's parents didn't bother getting to know who their handicapped son was hanging out with, or they just didn't care. I just can't believe there were no red flags for these parents as to what kind of people these OFFENDERS were. Especially with that amount of crime that was committed throughout this entire incident. This victim is lucky to be alive after all he went through. Just when you think that crime in Chicago can't go any lower, this happens.

Of course they tried to downplay this. What else could they do? If they say these people are anything more than stupid kids having fun, if they say they are monsters... well how many kids in Chicago are just like these four, capable of doing the same things - thousands perhaps? That would be a terrible indictment of a community that needs to be catered to.

Retired long before the ACLU's ISR forms came into existence, but from what I understand the stop and investigation that the original beat officers made is not in line with present day policy. A white kid wandering around an all black area of town, wearing shorts and flip flops on a freezing winter day, appearing to be disoriented. From what I have been led to believe by the ACLU nit wits there was no reason for the stop. Can't stop a person on the basis of his race, can't stop a person because of the way he is dressed. None of the business of the police, no crime or suspicion of a crime about to be committed, just an eccentric person minding his own business doing nothing criminal worthy of suspicion or investigation by the police. Thank god that the beat officers disregarded the policy and did a stop and investigation. In a few hours the kid would have died from exposure. All the lib nit wits have essentially taken away any common sense that the police operate under. Of coarse they all think they know more and could do a better job than any experienced officer who actually works the streets. Our own leadership has agreed with the ACLU nit wits on this matter. Thanks officers for using your intuition, common sense, and your police experience in this case, you did us all proud, great work, your not fetal your just forced to operate under new rules that make sense only to the know it all nit wits of the ACLU and the mayor.

1/06/2017 02:17:00 PM

You were a detective and you're this dumb? It's a good thing you retired. "A white kid wandering around an all black area of town, wearing shorts and flip flops on a freezing winter day, appearing to be disoriented," isn't going to be stopped by the police because they have reasonable articulable suspicion that he committed a crime, but rather because he looks like he is in need of assistance, including medical attention. The ACLU and ISRs have nothing to do with it. If you see a baby about to wander across the expressway, you don't stop the baby because it's black or because it's about to illegally crawl into traffic. This victim was not stopped to investigate something that he may have done wrong. He was stopped so that the officers could render aid and discover what happened to him. I don't know if your ridiculous post was influenced by the sarcastic ones referencing an ISR needing to be done on this victim, but you should've picked up that it was sarcasm. No one disregarded any policy by deciding to check the well-being of this poor victim. You're way off base on this one.

Only in Chicago would the police advocate for the the offenders. Who is advocating for the victim? When a police department starts making excuses for the criminals you know you live in a democratic progressive sanctuary city. Therein lies the problem with our police department that just emboldens these type of criminals to commit these heinous crimes. Outside of the sanctuary cities bad people go to jail and they do whatever they can to assist the victim and their family. Criminal justice in Chicago is truly justice for the criminals. I think we need to change the name to the victim justice system so these idiots know who to prosecute and who deserves justice. I truly feel like living in Chicago is like being in the Twilight Zone, the longer you're there the crazier it gets.

Actually, this story is getting INTERNATIONAL coverage, and as SCC pointed out in one of the other posts, the video has gone ultra-super-mega-viral. As horrible as this might sound, this story is a good thing; NOT because of the what this poor kid went through, but because the Amish All-Stars were stupid enough to broadcast this. The whole world got a good look at just how thin this veneer of civilization REALLY is - for every episode like this that ends up recorded, whether by the perps or by other cameras, there are hundreds of cases where only the aftermath is documented in any detail. A lot of eyes have been opened, and there's no putting this genie back in the bottle.

I'm glad you would have enough common sense to stop a baby from crossing the expressway , but you seem to think that
The child is worth stopping because he is crossing illegaly ?
Your calling me dumb. I would not attempt to try and explain my comments
To a person like you. Ya missed the point the sarcasm and everything.

True, it is an international story. I've even seen it in the South African media. I do wonder if it would have been charged as a hate crime if the victim had not had a disability. I kind of doubt it. You remember the white guy in Detroit nearly beaten to death by 4 or 5 black males and in the end they were not charged with a hate crime.
