Nice Public Transit Rahm

  • Reports of so-called “non-index” crime on the CTA in Chicago are on pace this year to surpass each of the past two years, including the number of cases of “criminal sexual abuse” such as “inappropriate touching” and “sexual harassment without physical contact.”

    There have been 145 instances of criminal sexual abuse reported on the CTA in Chicago since the beginning of 2015, with the number of such incidents rising from 44 in 2015 to 60 in 2017 as of Oct. 27. That’s according to a Chicago Sun-Times analysis of Chicago Police Department data on “non-index” crimes — those regarded as less severe than “index” crimes such as murder, robbery and rape.

    The L system, in particular, has seen an uptick in those sex crimes, which can be classified as either a misdemeanor or felony. There have been 2,003 reports of non-index crimes on the CTA in Chicago in 2017 through late October, ranging from fights to gambling, drug use to vandalism.

    By comparison, there were 2,006 such reports for all of 2016 and 2,036 the year before.
How badly undermanned is the Mass Transit Unit again? And how does the percentage of manpower assigned compare to somewhere else, like New York City?

Now I know why Dean the dream Angelo bought a new Mercedes with the proceeds from his FOP car. He’s afraid to ride public transit. Wonder if that’s why he used to fly first-class on the FOP dime?

Crime has skyrocketed on the CTA, especially the trains. CTA sends out the alerts daily. Why the media chooses to be hush about this is probably to protect shitty gall,,er, city hall.

The CTA is very dangerous. Anyone robbed or attacked on the CTA should sue the crap out of the CTA and get a pay day!

How about the story telling beggars on the Orange and Red lines? They ride all day and ask for donations after the train leaves the station now they have a captive audience who are intimidated into donation. It works well on white peoples going to Cub games.

I could never live in a city like Chicago. All my years living in the country, I know you don't wait to kill a copperhead or rattlesnakes. But you leave blacksnakes alone. If you got a blacksnake on the property, you won't have copperheads, rattlesnakes, or too many rodents.
Time for a lot of "men" in Chicago to become a blacksnake. Get rid of some of those pesky rodents irritating your women.

I have a conceal carry permit and the only time I make sure I'm carrying is when I know I am going to use public transit. I wouldn't dream of getting on CTA trains without serious protection.

Sooner or later, the Illinois general assembly is going to have to revisit the "no guns" on public transit rule. It's every man/woman for him/her self on the CTA. And I, for one, couldn't care less about that rule. I'll take my chances and protect myself no matter what.

Undermanned? How about this; approximately 50 officers, not counting the handful of FTOs, on each Watch in 016 for 2018. Doesn't leave too many on the street on any given day when you subtract Desk personnel, RDO, and furlough. Chew on that for a while.

Public Defenders taking the El complaining?
A class action suit is forthcoming.
The problem is the CTA rail car looks too much like a Cook Co jail cell and smells just as bad.

In between pickpocketing, cellphone robberies, shootings and turnstile jumping the CTA feral are just expressing their inner Louie CK...it’s natural art.

Why is it just a police problem?
Which representative group of elected are responsible for letting them come and go?

We are safe right rahm/sarcasm! then you look at New York what do they know:

NYPD Deploying Heavily-Armed Anti-Terror Squads to Major Sports, Concert Venues

http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/11/13/msg-barclays-center-security/

Excerpt:
The department has trained local officers in the Midtown South and 78th precincts and have armed them with semi-automatic Colt M4 Commando rifles, 1010 WINS’ Juliet Papa reported.

Hmm wow was at Midway the other day, strangely 1 copper walking around no rifle! The thing is even there no rifles carried, if/when we have an incident we are how do you say it excuse the vulgarity "fucked!" Ginger the goof has made sure the aviation police are "security monitors" and with the small contingent of police at the airports and mass transit it is pathetic how rahm and the crew get away with this travesty!

But rahm finds billions for the illegal invaders, for stadiums,and bike lanes wasting taxpayers money and does not care about their safety! He is driven around by storm trooping type valets "what red lights get out of the dam way we are impotent" driven in tank like gas hogging suburbans 30+ on his detail at a total yearly cost estimate of 4 million+

Why cant pandering rahm and the 50,along with toni-tommy-kimmy keep it real and ride the cta? its for the peasants they say and don't we know it!

Open that academy 24/7 push them through, but wait rahm the disrespect you and barry have shown to the police the best scenario is stand up tall call President Trump and request we federalize CPD taking control from you and all the goofs you have set up in jobs to attack us,federal gun laws at 10 years bye-bye,and as an added bonus we could enforce federal laws and clean out the illegal invaders saving taxpayers billions in scare revenue! Then rahm the feds would fund the pension using money taken from cities budget that would be "making Chicago great again MCGA!

The mass transit unit has 110 for 3 watches and 6 lines. New york has 4000. Mcarthy almost fell off his chair when he 1st came here and saw the numbers. And with all the fix post u have 1 team riding red south and 1 green south, The rest of the lines hasn t seen anyone in years. But when u have the commander allowing CTA to make the calls, u have the tail wagging the dog.U have so many mentals riding the lines now in droves that those numbers are only going to skyrocket up. But city doesn t care cause all they want is to keep stealing the federal money, just ask the old commander Graiber how that went. The city is now = to Detroit.

There’s more than 1 copper out there, but they stay out of sight. The chosen are at the airports. It got so bad that the union had to fight for 50/50 transfers because before that all were management. Plenty of pos there wouldn’t know what to do with a rifle and would say “I didn’t come here to walk around all day carrying a rifle”

Sooner or later, somewhere on the CTA, a woman will use her legal right to CCL and stop an assault-in-progress. And then another. And at some point, the creeps will wise up maybe and these crimes will cease? And how would the liberal media handle such a thing...a woman's safety preserved by gun "violence"... Oh, the dilemma !

How about assigning mass transit to ride the trains like the past. Same goes for special employment. I watched a car sit all afternoon outside the state of Illinois building and not get out once. Dies a victim need to crawl streetwise to get help.

right, ur an idiot. Hows the city going to lose millions when they have been stealing the federal money. Those officers are already in the budget as our 12, 500 police #s. U close ohare and they come out of 16th district. Maybe u can kiss Obama s ass and get assigned to his library since u still love him that much.
