Murder Free Since....Nevermind

  • Authorities are investigating shootings that left a 15-year-old boy dead and four other people including a 16-year-old girl wounded on Sunday, police said.

    The boy, 15, was killed and a 16-year-old girl was grazed by a bullet in the 1600 block of South Saint Louis Avenue in city's Lawndale neighborhood about 6:35 p.m., police said.

    Police said the teens were in a gangway when a gray sedan drove by and someone inside opened fire.

    Both were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where the boy, who was shot in the back, was pronounced dead. The female suffered a graze wound to her back.
  • At least 18 people have been wounded in Chicago shootings throughout the Memorial Day weekend, with eight victims shot in a five-hour spate of violence early Sunday.

    But there have been no fatal shootings since Friday evening, making this year’s holiday weekend much less violent than last year’s so far.

    Last year, 43 people were shot, four of them fatally, by Sunday afternoon of the long holiday weekend, which is widely viewed as the unofficial start of summer...
McCompost was overheard to utter, "It isn't the weather!"
  • For some 20,000 cyclists expecting to bike for a cause Sunday on Lake Shore Drive, slippery conditions were a possibility as one of Chicago's rainiest springs neared a close.

    [...]But within hours of the end of the event, it was raining — again — in the Chicago area, a pattern that has made this spring one of the most rainy in nearly 150 years, according to meteorologists at the National Weather Service.

    From March 1to May 27, Chicago has seen 13.72 inches of precipitation, which is 4.64 inches higher than normal, or what is called "climatological normal," said Ricky Castro, a meteorologist at the Romeoville-based weather service.
Sure it isn't.

Thank our Lord for the rain and wind.

Because the City of Chicago and Cook County are doing nothing to stop the killings. In fact, refusing to imprison the guilty and not even allowing the criminals to run free are the biggest contributors to the murders and attempted murders.

Whats this "boy" and "girl" talk? Have we changed the terms from teens for some reason?

I bet you will see that boy term being used on criminals with long rap sheets.

Just more media bullshit spin.


Oh, and fuck you rahm.

Big Ed's modern policing methods are starting to bear fruit. Just wait, over the summer the number of shootings and killings will plummet. Peace, of a sort, is going to descend on Chicago.

The Russians did it! The Russians *colluded* with Rahm Emanuel to make it rain.

The Nine-Digit-Midget did this all in an attempt to keep shooting and homicide numbers low over the weekend and improve Tiny Dancer's image for reelection.

I **demand** a Congressional Investigation and a Special Prosecutor be appointed to investigate this threat to democracy and our Republic.

Ya know, Ringling Bros may have closed down but there's still the circus acts of democrats to entertain us: 'Come one, come all. See Rahm Emanuel tell lie after lie, live from City Hall. Guess the correct number of lies beforehand, and win a Kewpie Doll!'

Known as The Murder Capitol & Sanctuary, the lawlessness will not ever cede, maybe yesterday, maybe in the rain and cold, but the feral youth have short attention spans. Mental illness and blunt consumption precludes them from reasonable thought about weather.

The Merit Brass Band can't wait to get behind the mic tomorrow morning to tout the Surge successes of 1 less murder and 2 less gsw's than last year.
Struggling to maintain below 50 this month, Special Ed and The Surge had feral youth scrabbling trying to keep up, but don't count the bodies just yet, Rahm's feral will be out in great numbers today to dampen Jugghead's BBQ.

Ten of millions of dollars wasted ( or stolen ) to get the answer any street copper could tell you. Flood the area with police and take the bad guys off the street. Gee, is that so hard it took Special Ed all this time to figure it out?
Next, back your police force and see what it can really do.

Did the DOJ investigate the civilian policy on dropping off your accomplice after he or she has been shot? They dropped off their "friend" after he got shot at his house?!!! Didn't even bother to drop him off at the hospital and split or even apply a pressure bandage. WTF! Hey Community Activists!! The cops helped this kid out but his his friends dumped him for dead. Stick that in your COPA and DOJ report asshats!!!

"But there have been no fatal shootings since Friday evening, making this year’s holiday weekend much less violent than last year’s so far."

So then, some CODE has been revealed. In progressive liberal democrat Speak the word "violence" is defined as "fatal shooting".

According to this article, well maybe just the Sun Times author, 2 thousand people could be shot in a weekend but as long as none of them are fatal then such a weekend is >much less violent" than a weekend where three people are shot dead (and nobody else is shot or shot at).

Today's so called journalists, reporters, are incapable of just telling the truth about what has happened (report the news) with ruining their craft with pathetic attempts at sensationalism that tries to aid their politics.

In that light - I am going to go ahead and redefine "violence" this way.

Violence is rising against both the profession of journalism and the truth itself because this weekend 873 so called reporters wrote complete nonsense about what is going on in Chicago, doing drive-by articles that not only refuse to just tell the unbridled truth but also assassinate even the plainest definitions of words.

They consider 22 people shot a success? Even with the crap weather and all of patrol cancelling days off that's still pathetic. But these "endangered communities" love the drama and don't have to work so this bs just continues. Blame everything else except the savages.

SCC,

I'm going to make a prediction about the SWAT Sgt tryout. Only two Sgts have made it through so far out of 7. The one Sgt JC that is trying out is so scared of water that he takes showers sparingly. But it just so happens that he is tight with the SWAT Lt. Anyone want to bet he will make it?

Inspectors? HR? Bodycams? Videos? Oh wait they disappeared like they did when the FOIA was requested for them. Legit? Nothing to see here common people.

Hey SWAT Sgt ML "quacky wacky" and Sgt CR "shaky knees" care to comment on how you picked a certain Asian candidate because Sgt ML is buddies with him? Failing the swim? Swapping out his SWAT issued plates for his own lighter ones. Shhhh. Just don't tell anyone.

But all the other sucker candidates had to wear the heavy ones? Or having an ND on the line? Shooting hostages? Shhhn. It's ok. Just don't tell anyone.

Two shitbricks. But it's all legit right Lt "crossover Tommy?" It's all legit.

Swat tryouts are as legit as our meritorious promotion process. During a previous swat sgt tryout all the tricks were on display. Some sergeants got a play on shooting the wrong targets, some got a little extra slack during the physical tests and then a couple of really special sgts got extra practice with the rifle the night before qualification while everyone else got to go out and do PT. Totally legit right? They even had some hack from personnel "observing" some of the events to make sure it was all on the up and up. What a fucking sad joke. And the best part...the swat sergeants and instructors were the very ones that did this! Anything to keep the spot I guess.
In the end the special sgts got picked. This all happened under the command of the arrogant and clueless merit Lt. MM who can't take all the blame because he didn't give himself that spot.

Basically, this department is endangering its officers' and citizens' lives by allowing merit hacks and political clout babies on swat rather than risk hurting their feelings by enacting and enforcing high standards. They don't want the best, they want the ones with the best phone call. Don't feel too bad though swat guys because we all know that every unit on CPD is corrupted by clout, you're no different. Just do your best and try not to shoot yourself on a swat job.

Well we put out an additional 1300 officers for the holiday weekend. Results are positive with lower numbers. So what does it all mean. Eddie just multiply the 1300 by three for three watches and now you have the adequate number identifying how many additional officers we need to hire to quell the violence. You and Rahm have said it yourself all weekend. Dumb asses

Swat has always been a phone call. Northsiders pick their friends and southsiders pick their friends. Phone calls are made.

There was a girl in my selection and she was holding her own. I'll admit she was better then me. She didn't make it and neither did I. But several that did make it, had shot no shoots during the grading phase. Unbelievable!!

And supposedly every scenario was videotaped. Tried to request under FOIA but low and behold the videos were missing. Conspiracy on CPD?

If You --Supt needed 1300 more Officers on Duty
Then Why didn't You Budget for the additional 1300 Officers??
The Burn Out factor does Apply.

Good Question. More Questions than Answers!!

More Overtime Money is the Answer to All Problems!!

There are no Police Strategies. Just ask D.C. EW. His Unit is keeping the Community Policing Concept Alive at a Cost of $$$ Dollars

The Budget Issues stem from Non-Leaders in Command Positions. Either in Public Safety or Elected Officials

Many At CPS could use your New Overtime Strategy. Instead of FURLOUGH NO PAY DAYS. Mr F C is not on A No Pay Furlough Day
His position is necessary. HA HA
