It Must be Warming Up

  • Thieves made off with several items during a smash-and-grab burglary early Monday at the Louis Vuitton store on the Magnificent Mile.

    Just after midnight, a dark-colored car struck a vehicle driving north in the 900 block of North Michigan Avenue before repeatedly smashing into the revolving doors of the upscale retail store, according to Chicago Police.

    Five males then got out of the vehicle, broke into the store and took several items of merchandise, before jumping into a dark-colored SUV, which sped away, police said.
No descriptions, probably because there are no working cameras on a high-traffic, high-tourist, high-end street like North Michigan Avenue.

Anyone know what time Michigan Avenue Special Employment runs until?

They are usually all gone by 10 if not earlier and most of the time they are just shopping or eating. Completely worthless! While the entire 30 sector is down on bull shit retail thefts because security wants to play the police.

Maybe letting more 60 year old coppers work the Michigan Ave detail and watch them all eat and watch sporting events at some of the local hotels might help keep the city and its vendors safe??? What a shame! Yet please don't hesitate to approach these same vendors and hit them up for donations when the same idiots who do nothing for this city or department get jammed up for NOT doing their jobs! Tax payers deserve so much more from you special employment and VRI guys. If you expect us to continue to pay taxes and bail out your pensions, at least give us the appearance that your trying to do something for us.

It makes no difference if these thieves are caught or not. Kim Foxx will not prosecute.

VRI officers leave at 11 pm You would think the VRI officers would report to the 18th district and not Harrison and Kedzie

Come on people! If you have lived in this cesspool of a city for more than a week then you would know that the CTA surveillance cameras were installed by VANECKO Inc. These are special cameras which use VANECKO'S special race recognition software. All the user needs to do to program the system is to choose which race it does not want the cameras to record and presto! On playback you will have gaps in the recordings that would make Richard Nixon proud!

What's even more sad is the woman from the store that was interviewed blamed it on the lack of jobs and the poor economy. Give me a break.

It will be okay. Those poor criminals will be protected from the police (who are the problem you know) by liberal democrats that need their votes so the more honest citizens can continue to be made victims until they learn their lesson.

Someone needs to inform these little shitcago value honor students that kimsha fox changed the rules on shop lifting that gave them a license to steal. They need 10 misdemeanor CONVICTIONS to be charged with a felony or keep the value under $1000. Just get a bunch of wilders and walk in the front door of these gold coast stores on Michigan ave and do their shoplifting IF the little darling get caught its only misdemeanor theft instead of driving a stolen vehicle into the store and committing a burglary.

Insurance matter.
Smash and Grab is not a violent crime.
All felonies are bonded, no property crime offense is jailable.
Extra special credit for being an illegal immigrant person of colour.

Taxpayers don't deserve equal protection.
Until the 018'DC & tact Lt have shit-fits and find HQ (Merchant Assn. phone call) singled them out to get dumped.
Then it's all gung-ho rangers.

Stay Fetal, Rahm will not support you.
Special Ed will still merit promote the best.

The real crime is what it costs to buy LV products. This past Christmas I spent $2300 on purse and another $800 on a matching wallet for the Wife. When I paid it took me back to case reporting class with PO Esposito. I remember him talking about calculating the cumulative loss when doing a Theft report. His question to the Class was "The cost of the purse should also be counted in theft, what does a good purse go for these days?" A female Recruit responded "$300." Esposito responded saying that if his Wife came home with a $300 purse it better be filled with bandages, cause a Battery was about to occur. This job used to be so much fun, what happened???

Instead of blaming other coppers realize that manpower is down so much they've got the beat cars going from call to call and no one wants to do a traffic stop anymore.

The Amish are certainly a plague on Society. All them danged Anabaptist types are bad news. The electric Amish, aka Mennonites, are only a little bit less dangerous but it's definitely best to avoid all these Anabaptists whenever & wherever possible

The original Michigan Avenue Detail was formed in the late 70's in response to the same sort of "Smash and Grabs". The Michigan Avenue merchants wanted to put bars on their windows. Mayor Byrne did not like that solution and provided the detail instead.

Could it have been "teens"?

We just had another Apple store robbery in Marin County just north of San Francisco and damn if I didn't find the golden unicorn! KRON TV properly identified the perpetrators as,

"The suspects are described as five African-American males in their early to late teens."

Here is the link as I am sure many of you won't believe it unless you see it! Got to give a standing ovation to KRON for having the courage to report the truth. I'm sure liberals all over the bay area are boycotting them now.
