Well Lookie Here

There's a whole stack of these things at the Academy Range:


So why aren't these being used by the training staff?

Aren't bats dangerous weapons? Deadly weapons?

Rahm, you want to have Corp Counsel explain this?

Meh... cant shoot a man with a bat--- society and Rahm says so... if you do, prepare for COPA to lego paper together and give it to tell Kidney Bean so he can end up firing. This has been decided already right Rahm

OT for about 6 months now there has been a high incident rate of rims being stolen off vehicles in the 016 and 017 Districts in the City. I have seen at least 3 in my area while walking the dog in the last 3 weeks (017 District North West Area). Good job Rahm stopping all the Homicides on the South and West sides of the City, can we now move VRI to 016 and 017 to stop all the theft from vehicles and burglaries?

You must activate your camera, use your de-escalating words, call for a CIT car and recognize that's only a little commemorative bat. If you manage to get him to drop the knife, remember to complete the ISR for the head. If you do use deadly force, just remember, Rahm and the department have your back.

Saw Fat-Head-Ed at the scripted anti-gun Press'r with Rahm, regarding the legislation to license gun stores in Illinois that's before Gov. Rauner. A....Tony Riccio was too short to be seen until you saw a side view of the collected brain trust on the podium. He just doesn't stand out in a crowd, know what I mean! B....What gun store in Chicago exists that gives Rahm standing to contribute to this debate? Oh that's right; there are no Gun Stores in Chicago. Through a constellation of restrictive ordinances no store can comply with the city's impediments that would allow a store to open, not even a token politically correct gun store, as a canard. I hope the gun stores of Illinois and the NRA sue. Let's find an old black gentleman who wants to open a store in Chicago for his people to buy guns to defend themselves, and Chicago won't let him. And, I've got the name for his store; the Rosa Parks Gallery of Fine Handguns. Chew on that liberal EDP's!

If you are thinking, I can't shoot someone who is going or attempting to beat my dumb ass with a bat; then would you be willing to let someone beat you with a 2x4, crowbar, blackjack or other object because someone or COPA is telling you it's not a dangerous weapon?

So......absence of the presence of vigorous law enforcement, you lament said absence......yet, do not utilize said absence to solve the problem by your own effort.

Perhaps you choose to not do so as a matter of the pricinple of you want to receive the service you are paying for?

Or maybe you find the means of solving this particular problem too messy for your delicate sensibilties?

To steal requires effort + time + presence = targets of opportunity are precious, not to be wasted by those who object to said targets' activities......

One morning in ancient times in the 020 District we got a call of a man with a large butcher knife in the lobby of an SRO on Winthrop, threatening the tenants. Upon arrival we saw just that. Staying out of striking distance we aimed our guns at him and tried to talk him into dropping the knife. Our "civilian advisors",tenants of the building, kept screaming do something in spite of us saying get the fuck out of here. As we inched closer he said, if you come closer, I'll stab myself which he did. He stabbed himself in his bicep and his bicep muscle popped out squrting blood everywhere. Now Amb. 13 arrives and we jokingly tell them, he's all yours. They said stall him for a few minutes and he will pass out from the blood loss which he did whereupon we cuffed him and Amb carted him out. I'll never forget our "civilian advisors" shouting, shoot him, kill him. Guess we could have, our "advisors" surely would have approved in those days!

One incident has nothing to do with the other. Besides, the coat thief told the truth about the incident. Also, Rialmo was not a police officer at the time of the incident and never purported to be a police officer. The responsibility for notifying the police belonged to the license holder. And, if finger-play will sink a career, you best not ever film your most private moments.

Regardless, he is being railroaded for the original incident. However, despite your doom and gloom view of the future, they have an excellent legal strategy and will prevail.

Let's touch base again when he is re-instated. Until then, blow me cheapskate.
