Fourth Estate Follies

So someone who can't even be bothered to do their own research into substantive allegations made by this blog and its readers, decides that the police should just lay back and enjoy being lectured by our betters:
  • Judging by their responses in social media, many of the city’s police officers were totally unmoved by the findings of the federal government’s investigation into the Chicago Police Department.

    In the posts and comment sections of the Second City Cop blog, you won’t find any serious discussion of the many disturbing incidents or the systemic, dysfunctional practices detailed by the feds last week.
Sure you will. We've only just started critiquing the report. It takes time to read through 166 pages if you want to make sense of it, unlike many "journalists" who read the executive summary, skip entire sections, and accept everything the government feeds them like the good little mushrooms they are.

When you have to live under it, you take your time.
  • There was nearly unanimous scorn for a report that anonymous commenters dismissed as a “scam,” a “crock of s—” and “garbage” that was produced “for the sole purpose of advancing an agenda.”

    One Second City Cop commenter pointed out that the head of the U.S. Department of Justice division that conducted the investigation here had been “legal council” [sic] for the NAACP.

    “Bias everywhere!!!” that commenter concluded.
You think this DOJ lawyer was appointed to be fair? That she didn't bring innate biases to her work? Seriously? What makes her so different from us, seeing as how we (the police) bring every bias under the sun to our jobs - it says so in the report. Oh, right, leftists can't be biased, only the conservatives, right leaning, police types. Leftists are as pure as the driven snow. Judging by the report, "bias" is a very real explanation for the sloppy research and questionable conclusions.
  • You see, it’s the cops who are the victims here, despite the DOJ’s allegations that the department regularly violates constitutional rights.
No where have we personally posted that cops are the "victims." And this "journalist" even states in that sentence that these are "allegations." LAst time we checked, "allegations" mean there is no definitive proof. So why can't cops feel a little picked on? After all, there weren't dozens of journalists killed in the US last year.
  • Others consoled fellow officers by looking ahead to the inauguration of a new sheriff in D.C. on Friday, exactly one week after the report on the CPD was made public.

    They ain’t afraid of no feds. And why should they be? President-elect Donald Trump has picked an attorney general who shares their bedrock belief that they’ve been unfairly maligned after all the racially charged disputes across the country during the past couple years.
Have you tried that line of reasoning on Darren Wilson lately? He was cleared by the local, state and Obama's own Department of Justice, yet still can't find work. "Maligned" is by far the least of crimes committed by press. Same thing in Baltimore.
  • “Hopefully the DOJ run by adults under Trump will re-examine the report,” one commenter said on Second City Cop.

    The officer who authors the blog alleged the Justice Department sought to get information only from “people with ingrained prejudices against the police, people with histories versus the police, people whose livelihood relies on suing the police — people with axes to grind.”
We're pretty sick of this mope about now. But yeah, god forbid we ever demand a fair shake, an unbiased investigation without the stink of a political rush job before Administration changes, a report that properly samples the community, that doesn't properly document or cite where information is coming from.

But then when you work for a paper that endorsed Hillary Clinton, carried water for Shortshanks, then Rahm, failed to cover real verifiable corruption at the City, County, State and Federal levels, that regularly writes love letters to president Sparklefarts, well, why would the cops expect anything resembling legit reporting from them.

This is exactly how they got Trump.

Sorry a lil off topic.

Hello Media, since we know you guys are following this great blog, here is a Investigation tip.

Read the bottom fine print on page 131 of the DOG Report. Yes, the Chicago inspector general office is investigating several sergeants (many from our own IAD Section) for cheating on the 2015 CPD Lieutenant Exam. The kicker is the current superintendent is involved! Several other current and former high ranking police brass are involved. The NOBLE Organization help to created this corruption by allowing them to use their name as shielding. There are atleast 25 current lieutenants who took part in this cheating scandal and hopefully will be held accountable, and charged with a felony theft.

This investigation is a fire storm for the CPD especially after the DOJ report.

Outstanding job SCC! Unfortunately, you will never be able to pull this reporter's head out from his own ass, no matter how hard you try. Clowns like him just don't, and never will 'get it.'

Luckily, we have intelligent, and fair minded writers such as yourself, and your staff, to point out the liberal bias that has spread through journalism like a cancer.

I highly doubt this fool will have the balls, or the ability to articulate any sort of rebuttal. Don't hold me to that though. He just might be delusional enough to try.

Anonymous Dan Mihalopoulos Is A Whining, Wet-Eyed Liberal Punk said...

It does seem that Dan Mihalopoulos was posted to be the
media sentinel to monitor the blog and report on the
push-back against the DOJ report.

His screed was fairly amusing to read... You could
almost visualize him giving us the "finger of
admonishment" for being fully formed adults with
the requisite life experience, discernment and
survival instinct to have earned the right to have
accumulated a body of biases, preconceived notions,
conventions and mores just like everyone else.

We haven't seen a damned thing in federal, state,
municipal law, or even in CPD Rules & Regulations
that contravenes Policemen from roundly discrediting
the DOJ report for the slap-dash, cravenly short on
content and context, slanted, misleading, hyperbole
ridden donkey-dung it is...

Oh wait... "You guys are bringing "discredit"
to the Department for being so aggressive,
hostile and profanely intransigent.
It upsets us."

Dan Mihalopoulos and his liberal media ilk
and others, do fervently wish CPD conditions
of employment had an enforceable "Sit Down
Shut Up and Be Quiet" component to keep the
noisy and irate CPD "Deplorables" from
exercising their rights and pushing back
when even the USDOJ overreaches.

"My God! Don't you wild-assed street Cops
have any respect for your betters at DOJ?"

Mihalopoulos whines about the lack of
"serious discussion of the many disturbing
incidents or the systemic, dysfunctional
practices detailed by the feds last week."

Heh...
An old Army First Sergeant once remarked
about Paratroopers:
"Only three things fall from the sky...
Fools, rain and bird shit."
Dan just apparently arrived here
via free-fall.

Typical Chicago print reporter, he's one
painfully lazy ass. SCC has a ten year
archive of posts and comments where all
manner of pertinent issues have been discussed.

Dan Mihalopoulos reasons and articulates
like a street-corner lawyer.

Unanimous scorn?
Ya damn right.

This "report" was crafted with a preordained
conclusion in mind.

If this report were even remotely honorable in intent,
it would have be a top to bottom examination beginning
with City Hall, but Obama had DOJ do Rahm a real solid
by making him "disappear" from this report.

Which in itself is rather curious.
Rahm the notorious micro-manager with his hands all in
the day-to-day operations of CPD, somehow managing
avoiding being mentioned as a co-owner in a monumental
Police/Public Safety/Public Violence crisis he helped
foment with the complicity of the Fourth Estate?

"They ain't afraid of no feds."

No fear of an axe-grinding media pissant either.
We're well versed in being close to the ugly
that Dan Mihalopoulos and his wet-eyed,
hand-wringing ilk can't even begin to
wrap their heads around.

Stay out of Police Business.
You have no idea what it's
really about.

To borrow a phrase, "I hope that Trump sticks it in the media's ear."

The report was rife with bias against the CPD. All heresy, lies and innuendo.

As far as "paying money to people who hate you," been doing that for the generational welfare leeches in "the community" for years.

Less than 2 days until Sparklefarts, his Lynch Mob, and assorted race baiting leftist loons are relegated to the trash bin of history.

Enjoy your Trump presidency.

As Heather McDonald points out, the DOJ report is fatally flawed, is not supported by any reported data, and would receive an F if submitted as a high school civics paper. Mihalopoulos is a typical follow the crowd journalist who ate the DOJ report hook, line and sinker. By the way, what testing, certification, training or licensing is required to claim you are a journalist. None. Police officers are trained, tested, certified in certain specialties and licensed by the state as LEOs. Anyone with a pen, paper or an iPad can claim the title journalist. Journalists know nothing about law enforcement and shouldn't comment unless they have made an intense study of the law enforcement profession.
In addition, it was physically revolting to see the picture of Darrell Cannon on the front page of the Sun Times. Cannon has been convicted of three murders by three different juries. About a year or two ago his brother who lived with Cannon, was found shot to death in the home they shared. Darrell allegedly came home late and went to bed and found his bro's body in the kitchen the next morning with a gunshot wound to the head. Guess who I like for that murder. I knew the victim of Darrell's first murder. Darrell shot the aged owner of a toy store to death in 1970. The victim, Mr. Lazar, was an icon in the South Shore community. He and his wife owned and operated Wee Folks toy and clothing store in the 1700 block of East 79th street. Mr. Lazar was Jewish but made many contributions in clothing and toys to Catholic parishes in the area. He and his wife were well known and liked. Darrell held up the store and shot Mr. Lazar five times in front of his wife.Cannon was caught and convicted and sentenced to 100 years. He was miraculously released after 8 or 9 years to return to the street to commit more murders as an el Rukn "general". Cannon has never shown any remorse or made any apology regarding his first murder. For the ST to hold Cannon out as a victim is disgusting. The child like, naive reporters never checked Darrell's background or spoke to members of the Lazar family. They merely presume Darrell to be aggrieved due to propaganda from the People's Law Office where Darrell now serves subpoenas. Warning to PLO: Don't turn your back on Darrell. He is a stone killer and killed his bro and an old man. He will kill you if he feels like it. Actually, that would be sweet ironic justice. Sleep with one eye open G. Flint!

Isn't it interesting that an impartial group of DOJ investigators and supervisors is never assigned to investigate civil rights investigations? By human nature, neither Black nor White lawyers are unbiased. How about they bring in a group of Asian DOJ investigators and supervisors. No pun intended, but Asians have no skin in the game of Black on Black crime, Black on White crime, White on Black crime and White on White crime. Asians have no cultural bias towards either side.

There are 3 kinds of people in this city.
1.
God fearing, law abiding people who work for a living and were able to filter out the socialistic views that their professors and the media tried to indoctrinate them with.

2.
Totally indoctrinated people who did not have the ability to filter out the propaganda spread by professors and the media, including the press and politicians whose only desire is to champion the downfall of a civilized society.

3.
Those who hide behind the label of underprivileged but really are the most racist and militant segment of our society, who practice the law of the jungle and don't recognize the law of the land or those entrusted to enforce it. These are the people that group 2 champions.

Unfortunately for Chicago, groups 2 & 3 are the majority in this sanctuary cesspool they have created that experiences more violence than most third world countries. To quote Albert Einstein "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

I have actually conversed with a few reporters from both the Trib and Slum Times in the past and asked how many trials at 26th and Cal have they attended, ans: 0. I asked if they read any articles by Bill Crawford or Martin Prieb. If they had read above authors books on wrongful convictions and the possibility of wrong doing by Atty's, private investigators and professor's and they're students. All of them answered No. The most astonishing thing coming from them is a sense that any investigating on their part that would expose corruption on the behalf of the wrongful conviction movement is absurd and unnecessary. I asked the so-called journalists what factual information they had as proof of torture by Commander Jon Burge and the answer was it wasn't needed because they know it was true. Because reading of some info from a biased position is what counts as research to MSM. The goof from the Slum Times has the balls to critique the commentor's on SCC but has full faith in an investigation led By an Atty General that sat with a former President and husband of Democratic nominee while said spouse was under investigation. The Atty General when interviewed realized too late that it didn't look good to the American people. And we're the assholes. Sorry for the long post but I had to vent. Thanks SCC for the platform.

How many officers recognize this scenario? You go to the offenders address armed with probable cause to arrest and encounter mama and ask her where her son is. She states he's working and you ask where does he work and she responds 16th and Holman. You ask the business name and she states he works the corner. To her and her son working the corner and slinging dope is a legitimate job. Now it would stand to reason why those who live by the law of the jungle instead of the law of the land would despise the POLICE. Become civilized by getting a lawful job so you can provide for yourself and your family. Educate your community that the government is not your mommy and daddy. It's not the governments job to pay for your existence from cradle to grave. I know it hard to stomach but being personally responsible for your personal economic situation is what the majority of mainstream Americans do on a daily basis.

Remember that when the police department tells police officers to receive more classroom training it frequently recommends the City Colleges where most adjunct faculty are so poorly paid that they probably are eligible for LINK cards and food stamps.

Translated for the uninformed: When Rahm took office Richie had left the cupboard empty except for the City Colleges of Chicago, which has the only community college board of trustees that is appointed rather than elected. The City Colleges had money on hand and taxing authority that appears on property tax bills as a separate line item, so Rahm decided it was time to start spending City Colleges money on new construction. Malcolm X College had to replace a forty year old building as obsolete with a new multimillion dollar building, so Rahm could divvy up construction contracts with his contributors (actions approved by the rubber stamp mayoral appointed trustees). The new college was so well designed that the faculty offices were omitted, so instructors have to use cubicles or meet students in the corridors.

The Sun Times is not even good for wiping your ass.

OT: Kass must believe that "Harry Potter" is a faithful description of wizardry in British schools. Harry Potter is as accurate as "Hidden Figures." Both are purely fiction.

From a citizen reader: Dan who? If it was not for this blog, nobody would have noticed him. I have not bought a paper in this city for 2-3 years because they simply are not worth the money they cost and the content is worth even less. And best of all, my current events IQ is better than ever. The sooner the last paper in this city turns its lights off, the better for all and the enviornment as well. I believe this to be true around the country. Some of the so called journalism is absolute junk. For police news, this is one of my go to sources. I prefer to count on the police rather than journalists and the DOJ.
