What Rahm Wrought

  • Two people were shot at 31st Street Beach on Saturday night as families enjoyed the grassy lawn and bicyclists rode down the adjacent pathway. A 27-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman were sitting near the shoreline in the 2800 block of South Fort Dearborn Drive when they heard gunshots and realized they were hit about 10:30 p.m., Chicago police said.

    The man was struck in the right leg and the woman was struck in the right hand, police said. Both were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition. Officers shined flashlights on the dark path and beach as they scoured the grounds to find shell casings. They closed a portion of the lakefront trail with crime scene tape.

    A man who pulled up to the beach with friends in a car just after the shooting said he saw the swarm of police and paramedics rush to the shoreline where a man was lying on hay-like grass.

    The man, who did not want to be identified, said he was shocked violence would spill into the family-friendly area. "This is like neutral ground. There's a lot of kids and families out. When it's nice, people come to have a barbecue. This is not a place where you expect things to go down," said the man, 23, of Bronzeville. "It's away from where people are getting killed. That's the crazy thing."
"Neutral ground?" In a city that had 4,400 people shot last year with nearly 800 of those dying. A city on pace for a second straight year of 700 dead and over 4,000 shot. We're pretty sure there is no such thing as "neutral ground."

But who is defining this so-called "neutral ground?" It isn't the politicians - that would mean admitting parts of the city are war zones.

Not the police - we know "neutral ground" is imaginary.

It's the gangs and the people affected by the gang warfare. Rahm has essentially conceded almost every District, almost every neighborhood, nearly every formerly "safe" part of town to the shooters, the criminal element, the lawless. That friends, is Rahm's legacy.

There most certainly DID used to be neutral ground.
Think about it- 26th and California on any given day has gang members from all corners of the city, and often even rival factions roaming the halls of the building, and the grounds nearby. It was generally always considered "neutral ground." You gave rivals a pass, and they gave you a pass- because going to court was a part of the game and you had to be there. If gang conflicts carried over into the building, it would be mass chaos everyday.
There were other neutral spots in the city before also.

However nowadays Michigan Avenue, Navy Pier, all of downtown, the beaches, and even 26th & Cal are becoming hunting grounds, or opportunities for gang violence which we had t seen in years oast.

In referencing the open post, "How about THAT as a good reason for lifting residency?"

Actually it turned out to be three shot at 31st street beach last nite. A third showed up at the hospital later. And those that were shot might not have been so innocent beach goers . . . a gun was found stuffed into the sand near where the man and woman were sitting after they left in the ambulance. The urban element had turned 31st beach into a shithole years ago. That's why the Park District can't fill the spots in the mega million buck harbor that they built a few years back right next to it. The people that actually work, pay taxes and spend money in this fucked up city don't want to have to deal with dude when they come out to play on their water toys.

Yes, you can surely blame the mayor for the mess, but also point a finger at Preckwinkle and the Black Legislative caucus. In their minds it is the police and " over-policing" that is causing the crime wave and of course lack of job opportunities, which has some truth. But, no one has ever linked poverty as a root cause of violent crime. I don't think a job at Macy's will stop the shooters.

This is not a racist statement it is being a realist look at the community that is causing up to 80% or more of this murder mayhem total carnage the people the good people of these communities are terrified of the criminal element they like themselves in their homes venturing out during the morning hours to scour for food and other items that are needed they are like the animals in the jungle where are hunted and have to hide in order to avoid injury or immediate death! The people that are 100% responsible for this are the elected Democrats in this city state county this also includes our idiotic Democratic senators like Durban and Tammy Duckworth we have no clue I really don't care to stop the murder in the Mayham the thin blue line is getting thinner the police department has not kept up with the times just not Manpower call the police officers are still driving around with vehicles that the junkyards we're not even want to risk excepting the mayor promised all this new equipment all the new man power he has done nothing our pension fund is funded have less than 25% the worst in the United States of America of any department the mayor has taken from the police retirees their healthcare but yet he is invested millions in protecting illegal invaders the felons the criminals that tells you what the priorities of the elected in this carnage filled city are!

Rahm lives like all Elitist Democrats in a bubble paid for by the tax-payers! Surrounded 24/7 by an entourage of loyal armed bodyguards. (Are their guns bad?) Residing in the most congested and one of the most understaffed Districts in the City; Rahm's Detail is the Priority. Under No Circumstance is his Detail to be undermanned. The first Priority every day in 019, is making sure Rahm is guarded by a full contingent of Chicago police. Then his children and wife must be chauffeured to their private school and business commitments, by CPD. So if you live in a world where you are protected physically and visually from the violence surrounding the rest of the population; Shitcaga looks great! Let Rahm send his kids to school on the CTA, and see how things look. And the ass kissing: "Me Thinks" Media is part of the cover-up. But what worries me most at this point, is that nobody is stepping up to the plate to challenge Rahm. Where is the candidate who can beat this little turd? Be careful, protect each other. Baby "G"

I'm sure there is plenty of land in Highland Park, Glencoe and Northbrook to build a few projects.

In brief, the term and establishment of Neutral Zones was coined after the times of the civil wars of Syria and Lebanon, which later had involved sending in The US Marines to be on guard at the shores of Beruit.
To look at it locally here, one could argue it's the mixing of cultures, uncontrollable violence spilling over the borders or turfs and occupying an otherwise non-involved area by mauraders seeking to gain control of a territory.

The 31st St beach has to be a Rahm Emanuel inspired and adopted neutral-zone, nobody else would declare anywhere in Chicago "neutral". Unless of course it's the hippie naturalists who can never get enough federal money to a create a communal safe-space.
Chicago: It's either Safe or Unsafe - never neutral, but democratically neutered of law and order.

The city money buckets bailed a decrepit fallen 31st St Beach and tried to get it looking like the Oak Street of the South.

(OT) Another rahm deal:
Emanuel won't 'prejudge' future of aviation police after man dragged off United flight

(Would that be code for oh shit I'm getting many phone calls about these guys and I cannot fuck with them?)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-rahm-emanuel-united-airlines-react-met-20170417-story.html

Opps then this looks like ginger ($300,000 a year waste of space) will:

(Evans) is in the middle, right now, of a total top-to-bottom review that in the next two to three weeks should be out, and I don't want to prejudge that effort," the mayor said during a news conference in the Calumet Heights neighborhood to announce the beginning of street paving season.

"What happened the other day is totally, all around, unacceptable," added the mayor, who complimented Evans for placing the three officers who boarded the plane on paid leave.

(Yes ginger now sit great job suspending the coppers pull those puppet strings rahm she dances nicely, but not as nice as the ballerina wearing the wedding dress)

There have been some questions by some people over the last couple years about allowing those aviation officers to carry a gun," the mayor said. "As you know, my administration has opposed that, and I think it's pretty clear that's wrong."

(and if you had your way rahm CPD would be unarmed also as you use your propaganda arm the chicago media to 24/7 disparage police)

"If it is a customer service-related incident, then you don't need to board the plane at all," said Jeff Redding, the department's deputy commissioner of safety and security. "If there's no threat, there's no imminent threat or no charges being drawn, then you don't need to board the plane. There's no purpose for it."

(then this talking head, how it works is CPD and or DOA police are called and the airlines cancel the passengers ticket and want the passenger removed from airport as a non-ticketed passenger the guy/girl is then escorted out by police and left to fend for themselves no complaints signed police are bouncers for the airlines airport commander has no clue how to be a leader like Otis before him this places coppers in jeopardy dumb commanders means ignorant coppers ignorant means not knowing)

Back when the real summer mobile was around, the lakefront was well protected.
The genius powers that be decided it wasn't needed anymore.
On 3rd watch at summer mobile, there were 7 teams of 1 Sgt & 10 P.O.'s (5 two man cars), so with RDO's you had 5 Sgt's & 50 P.O.'s working on any given night from near Loyola to Calumet beach.
Not only a very effective unit, but had a great time doing it!

I can go back to 1978 and I can tell you 31st Beach has always been a shit hole when the sun sets. There used to be drag racing there and so many gangs that it would take an army of cops to even drive through. The projects would empty out on hot nights back then. I see

Not anymore.....the beach is rather nice and this is not typical for the beach

What exactly is the "urban element?" I frequent it all of the time during the summer during day & night hours. The bike riders are more of a nuisance for the average person than some "urban element!"

....as families enjoyed the grassy lawn and bicyclists rode down the adjacent pathway. A 27-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman were sitting near the shoreline in the 2800 block of South Fort Dearborn Drive when they heard gunshots and realized they were hit about 10:30 p.m....

bicycling and families frolicking in the grass---at 10 30 pm???....

Remember the couple that was chased and had to run across LSD last year during Memorial weekend. The Trib said they were out enjoying a nice summer evening. It was 1:40am when the girl was run over and died. All 16-17 year olds.

Rahm and the liberal treasonous democrats stand up for every perverse identity including Illegal Immigrants, radical islamist muslims whose mission is to exterminate all Christians,criminals and murderers of people both in and out of the womb. This is the most perverse bunch of anti-Americans in the history of our existence.

The devil is alive here in chicago where he is protected, nurtured, coddled and allowed to operate above the law. This city is truly a living hell and the flames are provided courtesy of Rahm, the aclu and the very very fake media.

Montrose harbor is a no-mans land at night.

Not safe for fishing.

Predators abound.

Even a street-wise urban dweller of questionable repute has a good chance of getting killed after dark while frequenting 31st Street beach or visiting the downtown area on foot. Stay away. I live near-south and I would not chance it. Do not let a false sense of security lead you to what underneath is an unsafe place.

This is a nice beach up until about 12pm. That's when the "unemployed" wake up and start popping in. At that poibt, it's time to pack up the picnic basket and go home. No jogging, no swimming after 12pm any day of th week.
