Vigilantes?

  • The shooting of a 17-year-old on Sunday might have been "street justice" for his attempts to break into a car, a police official said.

    Speaking at a meeting of residents Tuesday evening, Near West Police District Cmdr. Ed Kulbida said the shooting near Racine Avenue and Huron Street came about 5:35 p.m., after the teen and someone else were seen breaking into a car. They were followed, and the teen was shot in his leg, Kulbida said.

    "These people in the neighborhood, they didn't like that," said Kulbida of the break-in, adding of the pair, "I don't think they'll do that again."

    On Monday, some in a crowd of more than 250 residents in the basement of the Goldblatt's Bros. Building, 1625 W. Chicago Ave., laughed at the explanation while others appeared uneasy.

    After the gathering, Meaghan Thomas, a Humboldt Park resident, said she was "uncomfortable" with the implication that vigilante or street justice is acceptable.
Vigilantes might be a good thing - bring crime under control, free up the Courts, keep the jail empty. Hopefully, it wasn't for some unpaid gambling debts or similar.

The IMPLICATION that street justice is acceptable???
He simply stated a fact. That it appears it might have been street justice, due
to the circumstances reported by witnesses.

What the hell is wrong with these people?
There was no implication it's acceptable.
Can we no longer call murder 'murder'? If we call it murder, do we imply it's acceptable?
Idiots.

Interesting you mention gambling debts. Cmdr Kulbida announced at the beginning of the meeting that he was flying off to Vegas for his birthday.

As a resident of West Town, I want you all to know you had 300+ people at that meeting begging for more police. One of our neighbors even reinvented a BLM chant and put it on our FB Watch page:

What do we want?

More COPS!

When do we want them?

NOW!

Like I said yesterday, the police are there to protect the criminals from their victims.

Vigilantes can't lock you up, but they can kill your butt dead.

Citizen reader: It seems to me after careful thought, people who think like Meaghan Thomas are a significant reason why Chicago is in the situation that it is in. The city would be a better place if people like her moved away rather than the ones who are and in increasing numbers.

Vigilantes and street justice are not the way of the left and progressives. Vigilantes and street justice is showing way to much self reliance, instead of looking to government for the solution. Take all their guns away. Tighter gun control for the so-called law abiding citizens.

The Residents who were "Uneasy" are apparently unfamiliar with the history of that area. Part of it was a Hot Bed of Labor Union unrest in the 19th Century, and in the 20th Century part of it was Little Italy, and Madison Street was a skid row slum. The area controlled by the Italians was always policed officially and unofficially by the Italians. It was not uncommon for the police to be called to retrieve the badly beaten body of someone who made the mistake of committing a crime in "Their" neighborhood. The tightly knit community did a remarkable job of policing itself. A skill that seems to be lost in the 21st Century, where people mistakenly believe that Government can solve all of their problems.

That neighborhood always had vigilante justice. It had to, most of the folks who lived there couldn't call the cops or they'd get arrested. Just KIDDING.

[I loved working in that area 'back in the day'. I always felt safe there, day or night. Just be polite and mind your own business, not theirs.]

Oh trust me. Street justice has been going on for a minute now. The police cannot and do not protect everyone all the time.

It is people's personal and neighborhood responsibility to protect themselves.


It's just the first time a boss comments about it publicly.

There is more street justice then hits the media. I have seen traffic crashes where a child was struck was adjudicated by the community residents (Austin) prior to the police arriving, an alleged chain snatch offender met his match from the victims boyfriend (0110). Who knows how many of the street shootings are community justice since most "victims" say "heard shot, feel pain."

Advice concealed carry,was at the new point blank gun range in Hodgkins by the Quarry theaters (Very police friendly if your a copper you will understand), practicing they had full classes for concealed carry very good instructors the tip is get your permit buy a nice weapon, practice as the old saying goes "better judged by 12 than carried by 6" Protect yourself and your family.

Looks like President Trump is doing what he says but now Mexico is telling people:
Mexico warns citizens after US deportation of undocumented mother

http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/10/us/mexico-government-warning/

On Wednesday, Garcia de Rayos made her eighth visit to the immigration office since her 2008 arrest and conviction for using a fake Social Security number.
Mom deported after protests

After each previous meeting, the married mother of two was released and went back to her family, but this week she was detained and deported within 24 hours to her native Mexico. Her attorney said the deportation was a direct result of President Donald Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration.

Ok she used a "fake social security number" Did the media contact the person whose number she stole and took their identity to ask the citizen if they had to go through hell to get everything restored? Of course not! Why did this woman choose to not seek citizenship that is the question for all of them! We have over 500,000 in our area

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/most-undocumented-immigrants-live-in-areas-that-trump-lost/

Chicago (IL-IN-WI) 425,000

That is from 2014 they estimate we have another 100,000 since then look at all that money being used,as things are taken away from CPD officers and taking the retirees health care away as rahm funds all of this! What is going to happen when President Trump takes away the federal money over 1 billion as he protects the criminals lots wrong with evading enforcement of federal laws!

Judging by the DC's words, "These people" ...I'm thinking the audience wasn't diverse and comprised mostly of tender, delicate snowflakes.
Is this the same DC that gave the stand-down order at the UIC Pav Riot that caused the cancellation of the scheduled Donald Trump Rally?
We're these CAPS attendees the same snowflakes that are known for having violent outbursts and destroy property when they don't get their way?
So did the DC bend and give in again?
"Meaghan Thomas, a Humboldt Park resident, said she was "uncomfortable" with the implication that vigilante or street justice is acceptable."
– I wonder if there will be a protest march and rally to oust that insensitive, racist, misogynistic Commander for talking down to Meag for implying that "these people" get what they deserve. Funny how these people move into long established ghettos and think that they are going to bring that lost Hope & Change only to find out that the folks don't want them there.

Stay Fetal.

Sounds like McCarthys new company will be named Paragon Aviation Security Specialists. It will be comprised of off duty C.P.D. and expected to pay around $30 an hour. The hierarchy will consist of retired CPD and a few NYPD bosses. Aviation in its present form will be dissolved. Expect official announcement by Apr 1st, Rahm is on board due to VRI being eliminated and to work out the kinks before summer travel season.

Calling in sick for Super Futbol Gigante Bowl ?
Weeklong police strike in Brazil leaves 120 dead amid increasing anarchy
Authorities in the Brazilian state of Espirito Santo threatened striking police officers with criminal charges on Friday as the federal government sent in more troops in a bid to end a week of violent anarchy that has left more than 120 people dead.
(Reuters-Published February 10, 2017)

- maybe Rahm & Jugghead Special Ed can showcase that Brazil has higher crime and corruption than Chicago.
besides that, both support anarchists and violent protest groups.
When will Rahm call in the Allinsky Peace Marchers...? When President Trump gets the invite.

I have been trying to explain street justice to people for years, especially in terms of Chicago and in terms of gangs. Like crack cocaine, the allure of gang life in the beginning is far from the outcome down the road. The origin of gangs really boils down to those without justice and protection seeking both. When both are realized, well seeking a job within the community really local community organizing becomes a natural order of things. Tribal living follows.

And it all starts with the realization that cops are seen as the deliverers of injustice, not the facilitators of true justice. Write more tickets, pull more people over for license plate lights out, pull more out of cars, shake em down! Yeah, good luck with that. Why? because for every guilty guy with a warrant you find, you piss of ten people who weren't guilty of anything in the first place. it adds up. This, while murder after murder after robbery after rape all go unsolved. But hey, do another traffic stop! Yall are gonna have to FACE IT. Politicians sold you out a long time ago. It is time for change.

See the forest through the trees, please. Look up from the "code violations" to see the blatant crime, the real crime, happening right under your nose. Of course the "racist" claims against you are bogus. Of course almost all of you are good and decent people who just want to get home to your families. Guess what, the people feel the same way! If you won't or CAN'T bother with the "petty" crimes, that are actually crimes, then people will handle it themselves. As i have said for a long long time - a LOT of the "murders" in Chicago are just incidents of self defense or street justice doled out because a corrupt "justice system" won't (or isn't allowed to) do so.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/02/10/were-going-to-see-more-sanctuary-cities-cave-in-face-trumps-funding-threats.html


Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel also vowed to protect illegal immigrants, including ones suspected or convicted of crimes, from the feds.

“I want to be clear: We’re going to stay a sanctuary city," Emanuel said. "There is no stranger among us… you are welcome in Chicago as you pursue the American dream.”

This is insanity rahm sticking up for criminals great job then taking away police retirees health care shorting the police pension he's a real peach! Pathetic sickening criminal acts!

If vigilante justice is to be effective there will have to be back channel communications between any "protective association" or "committee of vigilance" and the CPD. For example, to clear an area and not be available for a 10 minute period.
