Just saw the news conference on OANN - alderthief calling for more "common sense gun laws" to further restrict things, blaming springfield, etc...

With SB1657 coming out of the Senate and heading to the House, to heap on more regulations of gun stores/FFLs, it sure seems suspicious that this happened. I'd like to hope that it wasn't concocted by some schmuck politician pushing the new regulations, and more of Tiny Dancer just not letting "a good crisis go to waste".

With all the laws relating to firearms on the books - why more? Why not just ENFORCE what we have now? Not plea bargain it down, etc? I really wish the media would investigate THAT - all of the bullshit that Kimmy & Co. have pulled which put these jagoffs out on the street.

Hope the Officers get well soon...

There are only two words who dated such an act
PUNISH THEM!

My guess is When The perps are caught, They will be found to be on the IDOC probation carousel still commiting crime Instead of being locked up.

Or Maybe, Tiny dancer will be sweating this one,These assailants are Illegal aliens commiting crime in a Sanctuary city

In this day and age of gangbangers shooting first and asking questions later, doing police work in a covert car is asking for trouble. These animals will light up a car (or van) just because they think it might contain a rival gang. In this case I'm sure they are going to say they didn't know it was the police. Best wishes to the officers. Good job to the responding officers and once again horrible coordination on the part of the bosses. Car 41, KPR, who can't get enough air time was uncharastically quite last night.

Rumors of these high powered weapons has been out there for months now. Nothing was done about it! This was known by the brass and politicians, all the way to the top. Information was distributed regarding these weapons being in the hands of gang members and thier willingness to use them to kill Police Officers with no regard to the public, Nothing much was done. There was a day when we had specialized units to handle this kind of intelligence. Intelligence would have the info, Gang/Tac units would work thier lines of information, SOS/Saturation/MSF would work thier end, a warrant would be secured, and most of the time the weapons were secured prior to bloodshed. With Rahms help, incompetent administration, and no leadership, this is what occurs. When is enough enough?

"Rahm on his way to hospital....

Go fuck yourself, Rahm."

5/02/2017 10:05:00 PM

Why?
So he can personally "stick it in
The Cops ear?"

Why does Rahm The Raisin-Hearted even
pretends to give a fuck about The Police
whom he blames for his political vehicle
crashing and burning even though it was
him-little-self driving it?

Rahm has totally lost control of this city...

Period.
Full stop.

The fey little insecure North Shore twerp
got lucky by getting cozy with
Dan Rotten-kowski and other old guard
Chicago political creatures of the
North Side.

That's where/when/why Rahm took on
the guise of "Chicago Tough-Guy."

"If I swear, bully, bluster and bullshit
like these guys, I can be seen as a
Chicago Tough-Guy too."

No.
No you aren't, Rahm.
Missed it by a mile.

Any true son of this city can see you
for the callow, swishing,
revanchist poot-butt you are.

You'd tuck-in behind another man standing
in "your" stall just to piss on the back of
his shoes... Then you'd run and hide instead
of owning up to what you did and taking your
ass-kicking like a man.

How you misgovern this city follows that
same pattern. No ownership. No culpability.
A vast array beholden lackeys to serve as
insulating layers to shield you from ANY
liability whatsoever.

A boy, playing at being a man, while
trying to ignore the wreckage that
has resulted from your malfeasance
mis-governance and incompetence.

Not to mention the bloodshed as a
direct result of your policy decisions.

"But look at ALL the construction cranes
twirling around in the sky downtown."

Bullshit & Busyness to divert attention
from the ongoing theft and
mismanagement of taxpayer treasure.

How much "re-investment" do the majority
taxpaying areas of this city get?

>Crickets<

The wholesale theft of paid-for Police presence
and service from majority taxpaying areas and
lavishing that same stolen, previously paid-for
Police presence and service on ungovernable,
tax-absorbing areas of this city, can serve as
an indication as to EXACTLY how much "re-investment"
the makority taxpaying areas get.

Dick-All...
And don't you dare make any noise about it.

The Tax-Absorbers say:
"Them that gots, gots to give to US
or else we gonna get mad."


FWIW, Rahm's feigned concern over these injured
Officers is disgusting.

Any money says these offenders were illegal immigrants... Also, lets start pushing FOP GRAHAM for more training. Its ridiculous that they want every officer to complete new use of force training by the end of this year so that they can train us to use minimal force options when gangbangers are getting equipped with high powered weapons. It takes nearly 3 years being on the waiting list to finally get CARBINE TRAINED. God bless these officers and speedy recovery to them, but its sickening to watch on TV SPECIAL ED and the politicians play a puppet act, when in fact, its these same people who are ruining this police department and putting officers in second guess mode on how to act in fear of getting stripped/fired.

I work in 009 and I hate to say that I've seen this coming. The district is way too big for the manpower on 3rd watch. No 06 cars, no rapids, and constantly have 2 or more down cars. Speedy recovery for the wounded officers. It's getting too ridiculous to work in 009, your back up is miles away. HQ been neglecting 009 and letting it rot for years. We barely have enough POs working yet we have more then enough supervisors. 009 is a big district to cover for its existing manpower and HQ make it seems like 009 do not need anymore. They push the 3rd watch to the cliff while 1st watch are sitting in the station "waiting for cars". I am lucky that it wasn't me this time, but like I said, it's bound to happen. I am glad the officers are recovering. How much more blue bloods does it take for HQ to realize they been cooking the book. Sooner or later, it's going to blow.

Not too many people really want to be the ones having to face the dangers of Sanctuary City, rather stay holed up all night then come out at daybreak, you'll be out there ranting calling us Untrusting Racists, pigs, walking, chanting in pink hats or masked faces carrying signs.

Rahm Emanuel & the Democrats has given the thugs free passes to roam the city armed, unchallenged and unaccountable.
He welcomes the third world mentality of these feral groups.

We all would like to think we can be Fetal, but the time comes when there's the ambush - there's no running away from Rahm's Kids.
Kitney Bean Special Ed's statement was a pathetic display of weakness. Soft as puppyshit.
Now you know why he was selected as The Right Man for The Right Time™.
Where's KitneyBean's Sick & Tarr'd ire?

Why Kitney Bean lasted this long is beyond reason, but what difference does it make when Rahm, PrickCanker & KimFxWinkle won't lock anybody up. But regardless, no replacement Supe will be able to go against the Democrats desire to keep incivility intact.
It will only get worse leading up to the next Mayoral election in March 2019.

The only plausible solution:
Peabody here....Sherman, set the Way Back Machine to 1960 Alabama.

So basically what you're saying is that someone can't drive whatever vehicle they want unless it's approved by the "Saints" or they'll get shot at? Fuck that bullshit. Time to stop playing with these assholes in the gangs and show them who really runs things.

Get some Armored Transport Vehicles - load up with full auto weapons, shoot to kill all gang bangers. Fucker pulls out a gun? Light it up. Driving around in the hooptiemobile? Follow that fucker all day long. When they fuck up, pull them over. Find anything illegal? Cuff up. Here illegally? Go straight to Federal Prison, then deport. They pull out guns? Light them up.

Eradicate them like the roaches they are. Except instead of playing with "Raid", it's time to break out the DDT.

The time is long past to stop coddling these POS. And any of the asshole politicans that defend them? Time to arrest them too for harboring criminals.

So using that ASA's logic it'd be ok to shoot up a van that had citizens in it not the police?

Since they were in a covert can't say for sure the bangers knew they were the police but no matter how you slice it they opened up on the van and struck it approximately 30 times.
It's a miracle that the outcome was not much, much worse.

Hopefully it's obvious that I 'm not blaming the officers involved.

Dear Tact Supervisor. Why the fuck do you have an officer that just hit his 2 year anniversary, working plain clothes, in a Fucking Covert car? Not unmarked, but a Covert?!
Don't we have a policy against this? Do you know the reason for that policy?

Dear upper level supervisors, and District Commanders. When you constantly push Numbers, you put lower level supervisors in a position where they are forced to utilize officers in capacities that they are ill prepared for, doing tasks they have no experience in.

Dear Command level supervisors and headquarters staffers. You are the people that dictate the rules. For the last year, nearly every district has issued a formal notice, approved and disseminated from your offices, requesting submissions for officers working Tact. Every one of these requests states minimum time required as 3 years on the job (two with former police/military exp). During this same time, every district has accepted officers that DO NOT meet these minimum experience requirements. Are you intentionally ignoring these assignments because you need numbers (and could give a shit about the officers), or are you ignoring them simply because violating your own rules is both anticipated, and expected, from the command staff?

I work in 009 and I hate to say that I've seen this coming. The district is way too big for the manpower on 3rd watch. No 06 cars, no rapids, and constantly have 2 or more down cars. Speedy recovery for the wounded officers. It's getting too ridiculous to work in 009, your back up is miles away. HQ been neglecting 009 and letting it rot for years. We barely have enough POs working yet we have more then enough supervisors. 009 is a big district to cover for its existing manpower and HQ make it seems like 009 do not need anymore. They push the 3rd watch to the cliff while 1st watch are sitting in the station "waiting for cars". I am lucky that it wasn't me this time, but like I said, it's bound to happen. I am glad the officers are recovering. How much more blue bloods does it take for HQ to realize they been cooking the book. Sooner or later, it's going to blow.

God bless

Very true words.
009 also has 2 Tact secretaries, 3-4 CompStat officers, 6-8 CAPS officers and a bevy of about a dozen full duty officers "working"/hidden in Cmdrs Admin office.
That's a lot of wasted/hidden manpower that should be helping out on the street..... priorities, priorities.

Don't we all wish Philly's immortal Frank Rizzo was either or both:

Chicago Police chief
Chicago Mayor

Frank was both in Philly during the worst years of the late 1960s and 1970s. So many other cities rioted and burned, not Phily. Frank dared the Black Panthers and other extremists to try that SH** in his town.

Frank caught some Black Panthers and forced them to strip naked in public - what a guy.

Plus Frank Rizzo was always very funny with a great quote for the local press. I miss guys like that.

5/03/2017 11:25:00 AM

If I had to guess which of you was drunk, I'd pick you. The person you're calling "junior" is probably older than you. Other than calling it Dearing, there's not much you could call inaccurate about what he posted. Your issue with Lowe and Halsted running "perpendicular" has just a few problems. For one, they run parallel. Secondly, the person you're attempting to criticize was simply stating that they had worked in 009 both when the station was on Lowe and when it moved to its current location on Halsted. Only a true moron could read what was posted and decide that it meant the station was located at the intersection of Lowe and Halsted. So, to use your words, at least the few that actually make sense, "Don't comment, junior. You embarrass us all."

Two police officers are shot and you decide that's your chance to jump on some veteran police officer and attempt to embarrass him because you're the "real police" as he's not. Fact is you fucked up and made yourself look like a moron. Next time try to stay on topic, especially when two of your fellow officers could've been killed, and maybe people won't know you're a clueless fucktard.

Get well soon, officers. But don't rush back to work. Your true brothers and sisters will handle business while you're out. I hope your injuries heal quickly and fully.

They know VRI times and violent zones and boxes. They read this blog. They call in multiple false 911 calls at the far end of 009 to do shootings. They watch first 48 and know what to say when questioned. They do those things to successfully shoot Razas. They can only get a saint tattoo if they shoot a Raza. The state and Feds executed successful operations to arrest them, but keep on shooting. Generation after generation. There is no way a covert vehicle should be touring around without several enforcement cars near by with eyes on. You wont see a Saint on the street for weeks because of this shooting. The "dog" that is on Fed parole should be back in a cage. I'm glad i'm retired but would like to put the gloves on again.

First off, best wishes officers. Heal up and take the summer off. Secondly, to the armchair quarterbacks - the blame for this shooting lies squarely with the La Razas, no one else. Gang bangers have turned this city into their own evil and twisted playground. Sure our bosses and politicians are also complicit but a couple of PO's (no matter how much time on the job) driving around in a covert doing passive surveillance is as fetal as police work can get. This city is so outta control that officers risk getting shot at just for leaving the parking lot. Finally, when the mayor shows up at the ER, shake his hand, be polite, show some class and just walk away tough guy. If you hate him that much, pull him aside, away from the cameras and tell him how you feel. Don't try to lecture others then type a rant anonymously. Jerk-off.

The Latin Saints have one goal. They only want to kill Razas. That's it. They are not interested in shooting police. They listen to scanners, know our early/late shift start and end times. They know VRI times and violent zones and boxes. They read this blog.

100% agree. I pray for a speedy recovery for both officers. But having a covert van with 2 under covers probably in hoodies is insane.

Listen I loved being the police and I appreciate guys still wanting to do stuff BUT cmon u could have left your family without a loved one simply because u wanted to tail some gangbanging fucks in a covert car.

There's a dichotomy going on in Chicago, and it
starts at the top. Corporations and developers being
lured in (cranes on the skyline). Tech companies building
and staffing in Chicago. Then you got ethnic gangs
(pay no attention, they stay in their own hoods, and won't
come here) fighting full-on wars in the background and
under-staffed departments, cause the spare cash and tax
breaks were given to the boys listed on the New York Stock
Exchange. I think someone wants these weekend shootings.
Population decrease by attrition. The Feds should move on the
Gangs: they are cop killers, cartel outposts in North America,
and facilitate the movement and safe-housing of illegals from city
to city. That's a form of human trafficking. And the Gangs use RICO
24/7 as their business model. We can't let the Gangs have their own
enclaves like the Muslims in France.

100 percent correct. Furthermore, why is this covert car chasing these gang bangers through alleys and streets in a covert car? The key word is chasing. No supervision on the Chicago Police Department. Just merit promotions. Anyone involved in putting these two in this situation should be fired.

This is what happens when you push these young coopers for numbers. Fire these merit hacks.

5/03/2017 06:07:00 PM


This is not a police ambush. Two inexperienced, under trained, unsupervised not worthy of the title police officer decide to engage in a high speed chase with gang members in a COVERT car? No blue and whites assigned as back ups. No unmarked assigned as backups. No Sgt monitoring or planning the operation? What exactly was their assignment? To chase gang members in a car that looks like a civilian? No lights? No sirens? No shots fired from the car these amateurs were chasing?

But daddy is a deputy chief. Not an ambush. I expect this from security guards. Not professional police officers. These officers do not deserve awards. They should be suspended along with the Sgts, the Tact Lt, the Commander, the Deputy Chief and the Chief of Patrol. Merit supervisors.

The worst part about all of this might have came form OEMC. The ambulances that were dispatched to the scene were responding to a "person down" call. So, the CFD had no idea that coppers were shot until they were on the scene. How the fuck does that happen?

Whoever made the ticket at OEMC really fucked that one up. There should definitely be a priority category for when an officer gets shot! Fricken' "person down." The guys on the ambulance probably thought that they were going to pick up some bum that was drunk on the corner.....definitely a spine-chilling surprise when they got on the scene.

Has a lot more time than that? He was in 2015 academy class... so Hmmm let me see, yea that makes him have two years on. No disrespect to this officer, I can care less how much time he has on, but he has 2 years.
---Also, can you really blame these guys for getting on tac with only 2 years on??? Lets face reality, look around most districts and guys are getting on TAC as soon as they get off probation.. Why? because no one else wants to do it and risk getting canned over chasing shitheads? Why? because they have experience on the job and personally viewed what has happen with officers, the new guys not so much the same.

Not trying to defend someone you dislike, but I have seen and been inside some "coverts" that had some really heavy tinted windows.
I have also seen Officers burn a covert by doing traffic stops and acting like they were in a blue/white with it.
There was a mission team that set up a covert as a decoy for a theft from auto mission. They actually had to scrape off the tint film in the back windows to see the empty boxes in the back seats! A covert is only as good as how you use it, or not?

Since so much of today's gang violence is sparked by social media activity, is it possible that when the Superintendent said Tuesday he was glad the Department did not have to add any names to the FOP Memorial Wall in 2016, that perhaps this (innocent) remark served as the catalyst upon which some asshole gang bangers took it upon themselves to try to add a couple of names to the Memorial at the FOP? He made these remarks at the memorial service at FOP broadcast live on Facebook just a few hours before the shooting took place. Unless it's just a coincidence, might it be worthwhile reviewing the video and run backgrounds on all those who posted negative comments during the Facebook Live coverage of this Memorial event? Maybe you'll see that some of those negative comments came from friends of those being held. I'm not an officer but just wanted to throw it out there... Be safe.

Dep Chief son has exactly 27 months on the job. Speaking as an old timer and someone who had utilized C-Cars for 10 years an officer with that time on the job has no business being involved in any type of covert operation or the use of a covert vehicle. This is a different level of policing for skilled and experienced officers, my personal opinion a big mistake was made here. I also believe this applies to an officer with his time on the job playing a role on a tact team, remember 18 months of the 27 months was in the academy and on probation. Time to re-evaluate some things.

First off, best wishes officers. Heal up and take the summer off. Secondly, to the armchair quarterbacks - the blame for this shooting lies squarely with the La Razas, no one else. Gang bangers have turned this city into their own evil and twisted playground. Sure our bosses and politicians are also complicit but a couple of PO's (no matter how much time on the job) driving around in a covert doing passive surveillance is as fetal as police work can get. This city is so outta control that officers risk getting shot at just for leaving the parking lot. Finally, when the mayor shows up at the ER, shake his hand, be polite, show some class and just walk away tough guy. If you hate him that much, pull him aside, away from the cameras and tell him how you feel. Don't try to lecture others then type a rant anonymously. Jerk-off.

First off if you use a covert to follow KNOWN GANG BANGERS AFTER ONE OF THEIR OWN HAS BEEN SHOT you should at least have a secondary covert or God forbid security cars available in case your covert has been made or THOUGHT TO BE RIVAL GANG BANGERS. This was bad police work.....intentions aside. You want to stop or be pro-active in any type of perceived retaliation it needs to have some type of plan of action that ensures the safety of the officers involved. It's not rocket science but anyone who has worked gangs knows that the gangbangers only job in life is to get from point A to point B without being shot by rival gang bangers. It's their life. Unsafe police work. COMPLETELY ON THE HANDS OF MANAGEMENT.
