Crime is Up

After years of Rahm bragging about CTA crime being down, "suddenly" it's up:
  • More than 90 percent of the serious crimes reported on CTA L trains and buses and at stations in Chicago go unsolved.

    Serious crime overall on the CTA in the city went up 16 percent last year — mostly thefts of cellphones and other items.

    And the CTA doesn’t keep statistics on crimes that take place in the suburbs aboard its buses or trains or at stations.
So it's undoubtedly even higher than reported and the clearance rate rivals the clearance rate for homicides. Almost like closing two detective areas and allowing the total number of detectives to dwindle might have had some effect on the numbers.

Not that it matters as Kim, Tommy, Toni and Tim continue to empty the jail and courtrooms....which might somehow have something to do with the burgeoning crime rate.

How can there be crime on the CTA?

Aren't guns and other weapons forbidden?

The CTA has been a disaster waiting to happen for several years, due to the lack of personnel assigned to Unit 701, Mass Transit. Add to this the fact that CTA crime does not have a coordinated response by detectives because it is not confined to one specific area. One CTA crime pattern on one bus route, can entail 5 separate Districts, and multiple parts of the City. For years, Mass Transit Tac and Special Employment Sgts. were forced to do their own detective follow ups. Remember, CTA Mass Transit is Totally Dependent on officers working on their days off in the Special Employment Unit 702. At no time is there or has there been enough officers in Unit 701 to provide a physical presence at even half of the stations on the System, not to mention buses, which number in the hundreds during rush hours. in New York City, thousands of officers are assigned to their Mass Transit. CTA passengers are vulnerable to becoming victims of crime and terrorism. Yet like so many other things in "The Shitty dat works", the issue will only be addressed after a tragedy or disaster. Both Huberman and Claypool naively believed that cameras can reduce crime. CTA is perhaps the most heavily camera covered area in the Shitty; yet crime is up. What does that say about the effectiveness of cameras? CAMERAS DO NOT MAKE ARRESTS, AND ARE THE MOST REACTIVE FORM OF POLICING IMAGINABLE. CAMERAS PROVIDE INFORMATION, AFTER THE CRIME IS COMMITTED! Add to that the reluctance of officers assigned to CTA to stop individuals, (Thank you ACLU) and you can see that the CTA is ABSOLUTELY UNSAFE. I worked CTA Special as a Patrol Officer and spent years in Mass Transit as a Sergeant. Under No Circumstances did I want my children riding CTA. Get off at the wrong stop, or fall asleep on the train after a difficult day at school or work; and your life can be changed forever, or even ended. Cameras cannot make arrests or stop an assault, robbery or rape. Note the mope caught with an Ak 47 assault rifle on CTA the other day at Belmont, on the North Side. Baby "G"

Reasons for crime being up:

Crime is up due to less clearances.

Crime is up due to less prosecutions.

Crime is up due to emptying the jail.

Crime is up due to more criminals on the street committing crimes.

Yet, the majority of citizens refuse to arm themselves, believing that guns are inherently dangerous and that gov will protect them from the criminals. The folly of falling victim to the gov lie, allows citizens to fall victim to criminals.

Since gov refuses to protect citizens from criminals, being more worried about the welfare of the criminal than the citizen, and law enforcement in this city is hamstrung by gov and liberal do-gooders, the only recourse is for citizens to protect themselves is to arm themselves.

Take note Citizen, if you think criminals will turn themselves around to become productive contributing citizens of society because of the SJW agenda of coddling them, you are living the Big Lie. And let's not forget that gov and the liberal do-gooders are more worried about protecting illegal aliens and also those illegal aliens who commit crimes, than protecting you the Citizen.

And people wonder why crime is up.

Amusing reading Jordan Watkin arrested Saturday morning carrying an AK on the Belmont platform. Another good job by CPD that will go mostly not noticed except by those of us paying attention. I'm further convinced as I have been for years that anything goes and I mean anything goes on the CTA. You use it at your own peril. It is a gun free zone even for lawful CCW carry and it is a no go zone for me period. No buses, no trains no damned piss soaked CTA. And to the poster above, add crime is up because we are a sanctuary city and by being one we show we are NOT a law and order city. And I think in a single sentence that is what has changed from 1960's Chicago to now. It is what government here now is responsible for and what it tolerates.

as the top Rahmista, Rahm of course was totally right (as always): crime was down on CTA....until it went up :)

Remember the social fascists (including the Rahmista wing) loved saying "We're speaking Truth to Power" ? Well, after the Long March thru the Institutions was successful & they are firmly & permanently ensconced in power now they "Speak Fantasy to Power"

Mass transit truly is the chaffeur service of Crime which is why it should be firmly opposed & resisted everytime it plans to expand it's reach. Just going to open up new territory for inner city criminals to prey upon.

Don't think it's going to help outliers to "commute" & "save the planet" from automotive pollution.

Nobody in their right mind takes CTA unless they have no other option. It's just too dangerous. Every ride is nerve-wracking. Best moment of any ride is when you get the hell off of the train or bus.

CTA is "sanctuary" transportation for thugs & monsters

Gee, do ya think it might just have something to do with criminals knowing that they have a protected operating area in the trains because government, cops especially, provides them with a fish in a barrel, free run area with more "gun free zone" idiocy?

Maybe, just maybe?

Stop the "Gun Free Zone" lie, by admitting that this term really means "Only Criminals Can Carry Zone".

Think about that Coppers, please, when it is YOU the good folks who are being robbed Fear more than the criminals robbing them of their possessions. They fear you arresting them and stealing their freedom because they dare exercise their right to bear arms to protect and defend themselves. They risk losing things rather than their very freedom.

Are you proud of that Service? Of that earned reputation? You Betcha the L trains is where major criminality is taking place. Government imposing a law it is prohibited from making or enforcing is one of the criminal actions happening. You Coppers are the enforcers of that corruption. You Built That. You own your portion of the responsibility for it. Fair enough and true it is that detective cuts and a mayor who cares not about you also plays a role, but then, why play enforcer of that gun control and take that blame... for Rahm? Why are you doing that, for him? For the Madagains?

Almost every in progress cta related job that comes over citywide one, A cta supervisor tells the dispatcher to flip it to the district cars. We don't have anybody near there. Also their commander is more concerned about her nails and their Tact lieutenant only works a few hours on midnights. Finally sergeant V & G.R. are in charge on afternoons. Enough said!

these mutts on my rdo! Sure I will react if I on view a violent crime, but have the time I work with a new partner I don't really know.
And usual just like me they are there for the OT money, not to get caught up in a arrest that may turn into a CR and or lawsuit, not in this anti police city.
Bottom line is I don't trust the city has my back anymore so proactive policing is OVER!

PS, that 0800 CTA sucks! We are treated like 12 yoa kids. You can't tell me we're to eat lunch sergeant! That 30 mins is mine! Pls go get a life. You know who you are.

Crime is up on CTA because they have no one to rob, rape and murder. As more and more blacks flee the city and state, there are fewer victims so the criminals, who are no going to stop being cowardly criminals, have to seek out every avenue to find potential victims.

If people would start thinking for themselves, and "grow a pair", and learn how to defend themselves ( and others if necessary) maybe, just maybe, we can become America again.

Here is a idea: The FOP calls a news conference an starts to inform the public on what is wrong with the Police Department. Lets start with the manpower issue. Why hasn't the FOP have representatives go to different Community Meeting and tell the citizens how short manpower really is. Take example the closing of several north side district and show the community how since Rahm has been the mayor personal has dropped dramatically. Inform the citizens of the north west side how many PO's are working midnights. At the same time in these community meetings the FOP can then inform the citizens what is going on with the States Attorneys Office. Instead of complaining about the States Attorneys Office on this website, why doesn't the FOP make the case at these meetings. Here is another idea: have PO's call the FOP Office and inform them on different issues with charging and court dispositions. The FOP then can issue press releases and inform the public of what is going on in the courts. From what I understand the current FOP President does not want to be confrontational with the mayor. This is evident due to the lack of criticism coming out of the FOP. I hate to admit this but Karen Lewis of the Teachers Union calls out the mayor and yet she gets the teachers fairly good results. I know some people will say that the above ideas are not what the FOP should be doing. There is a phrase: THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. I know it is a few years old but what the fuck, what the FOP was doing the last four years did not work and it appears that the present president of the FOP has taken tips on how to be non confrontational from the last president of FOP. Kevin you ran to be a different President. So far same old, same old. If I didn't know better there has not been a change of Presidents of the FOP.

I'm a concealed carry civilian who rides the Orange Line six days a week. I don't care about the rule, no guns on the CTA. My safety trumps some stupid gun rules the Mayor and the liberals made up. They hate the idea law abiding people are protecting themselves, and are a threat to their criminal constituents family and friends. For the most part, the Orange Line isn't that bad. Most of the problems are at Roosevelt and during the ride around the loop near the State of Illinois Building. I know there are camera's, but the question, why aren't more criminals being identified? The simple answer, the camera's are limited. I've seen these punks get on the train with their hoodies covering their faces. They know when their on the train theres a camera and when they leave the platforms have them also. The same punks with the hoodies leave the train and platform and once out of camera shot, remove and change their clothing. I wish the rule for concealed to carry on public transportation would be relaxed; because if I have to defend myself from the hoodie punks, I'm not hanging around.

Why encourage a reality show "survivor Chicago transit" Where we can pit say 4 potential victims, they could ride on the opening night the redline from 95th to 35th and back again, if they survive without being minimum of stabbed or shot, they could get mayor rahms "crime is down award" if they are stabbed shot they get the "crime is up ribbon" if they are murdered as many are they get the posthumous medal and the mayor will dispatch his "valets" in the extremely large red light running, gas hogging suburbans and tahoes! They will taken straight to city hall for lunch like rahm does for thugs families like the thugs that attempt to maim police and even though rahm gives freely taxpayers millions away to felon thugs families you will not get cash but a subway sandwich it is the "rahm way" honor the criminals it takes 1 to know one correct mayor?

OT: Per various Los Angeles city officials, a deal has been made for Los Angeles to host the 2028 Summer Olympics.

Los Angeles has made an agreement with officials of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to host the 2028 Summer Games, clearing the way for Paris to host the Summer Olympics in 2024.

Previous to the agreement, Los Angeles and Paris were both bidding for the 2024 Summer Games. With Los Angeles in place for the 2028 games, the way was cleared for Paris to be named the host for the 2024 Summer Olympics, which will be the 100th anniversary of the 1924 Paris Games.

The deal also will bring the Summer Olympics to Los Angeles for a third time, after the city staged the Games in 1984 and 1932.

The United States last hosted the Summer Olympics in Atlanta in 1996, while the Winter Games were held in Salt Lake City in 2002.

The IOC is expected to announce the agreement by close of business today. And, subsequent to the IOC announcement, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti with Casey Wasserman, the bid chief for Los Angeles, will hold a news conference to confirm the IOC announcement.

FOOTNOTE: Thank the heavens it is not us! LA can have it.

Mass Transit has a Supervisor problem. You have a Tact Sgt on 3rd Watch that no one wants to work for, he will stick it in your ass if he could, you have a Sgt who blew hot and HR wants to make him a personal concern, then you have a Lt who is afraid of his own shadow and hides behind his desk on midnights. You have a Sgt who works 702, who will jam you up if you have an arrest and do not find time to notify her or take you off your fixed post. Bottom line there needs to be change and it starts with he supervisors, they are the problem in that unit.

Here is a idea: The FOP calls a news conference an starts to inform the public on what is wrong with the Police Department. Lets start with the manpower issue. Why hasn't the FOP have representatives go to different Community Meeting and tell the citizens how short manpower really is. Take example the closing of several north side district and show the community how since Rahm has been the mayor personal has dropped dramatically. Inform the citizens of the north west side how many PO's are working midnights. At the same time in these community meetings the FOP can then inform the citizens what is going on with the States Attorneys Office. Instead of complaining about the States Attorneys Office on this website, why doesn't the FOP make the case at these meetings. Here is another idea: have PO's call the FOP Office and inform them on different issues with charging and court dispositions. The FOP then can issue press releases and inform the public of what is going on in the courts. From what I understand the current FOP President does not want to be confrontational with the mayor. This is evident due to the lack of criticism coming out of the FOP. I hate to admit this but Karen Lewis of the Teachers Union calls out the mayor and yet she gets the teachers fairly good results. I know some people will say that the above ideas are not what the FOP should be doing. There is a phrase: THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. I know it is a few years old but what the fuck, what the FOP was doing the last four years did not work and it appears that the present president of the FOP has taken tips on how to be non confrontational from the last president of FOP. Kevin you ran to be a different President. So far same old, same old. If I didn't know better there has not been a change of Presidents of the FOP.

Kevin has turned into "quiet silent Kevin quickly" just like "shessh quiet dean" the baby in corner! Kevin look at you brother you were elected to stand up for us, you look terrible sorry brother but your pants cannot even be pulled up, your 1 donuts away from a major medical issue! what did rahm promise you? will you have to removed Ala storm trooper style like the punk move done to shields who at least spoke out?

Bring back the CTA police. When Jane Byrne disbanded that department it was the end of safety on the CTA. The city police never were serious about this, understaffed the CTA unit and frankly, the officers assigned to the unit were, for the most part, dogging it. They hid out and did very little. Now, things are even worse.

The Mass Transit unit is staffed, the problem is very few of the officers assigned there actually get on a train, bus or subway. Their commander is way over her head. A few assigned sergeants are just blowhards. They do less work than anyone assigned there. How is it they can come to work with dirty uniforms and late all the time ? Mass Transit is a joke.

Ten years ago there were over three hundred officers in Mass Transit, now I bet there is less then one hundred fifty. One Lt that does not know what he is doing, takes a car home, he does not need a car, Sgt's that mess with the P/O's and do not have the respect from them. Special Employment is a joke, no one wants to work for M.V. Dump the LT, switch some Sgt's from watch to Tact, you may get guys that want to work then, switch out SGT M.V. you will get P/O's back working Special. This is not to difficult, sounds like changes should happen from reading this blog.

Why bother riding CTA, off duty!

Did you know that if your off duty and not in uniform, the CA's now force off duty cops to pay a fare just like joe citizens! Fact!

Some have called police supervisors to station especially Logan Square Blue Line!

Militant Police Haters working as CA at Logan Square, during 2nd watch!

Happened a couple of times while riding to airports!

So let the crime happen and not take police action while off duty on the rails!

Better yet don't ride CTA off duty no more!

7/31/2017 12:18:00 PM

I have a Ventra card . I'm not always riding the train anyway. I put about $30 or $40 into it a year. I'm simply not going to make it known to the hater CTA employees that I'm a cop. You're asking for a mess if they know you're a cop. I don't want to interact with them. And one day you'll walk in and they'll be an argument going on and they'll say 'police he said he was gonna fuck me up' if they know you're the police they'll get you involved in ghetto nonsense. Then it gets violent, gun play. Hello lawsuit, possible indictment. All because you wanted to show your badge to get a free ride. Hope its worth it. Get a Ventra card. Its so much easier. $30 or $40 a year isn't gonna kill ya.

Little known fact is Detectives don't have direct access to the CTA camera system or PODS for that matter. A detective has to make a request for the video and then wait sometimes as long as a week to get it. Sometimes you get the wrong video and have to request it again and hope it's still available. Stupid system. CPD should have direct access to all video immediately.

THIS IS NOT TRUE. Any police officer can ride the CTA at no cost by providing identification. Considering everything going down on the CTA today, it would probably be better (off duty) to simply pay the fare and mind your own business, but that's another story.

Been predicting this since the CCW law went in effect. CTA and other public transportation is off limits for the civilian population to carry. I bet if an analysis was done you'd find elevated crime around CTA train stops (and probably bus stops although they're too numberous to analyze) and elevated crime on folks exiting public trans.

Why would anyone IID themselves as a PO on CTA when off duty. I used to take the Madison bus downtown. It was full of piss bums, mentals and otherwise unpredictable individuals staring at you and talking to themselves. I finally grew a brain and stopped riding. Who needs the aggrevation off duty of having to intervene on some total bullshit. CTA drivers can't stand the police anyway and would probably just try to set you up for some crap.
