Alderman Replies?

Does this mean we aren't "insignificant" any more?
  • Alderman Hopkins said...

    In numerous media interviews (including the Tribune story that is the subject of this post) over the previous four days, at no time did I describe the events downtown on 5 May as "normal". SCC falsely and inaccurately attributed "It's Normal" as a quote from me in the post's headline, when I said no such thing.

    My quote in the Tribune draws a contrast between unruly teen behavior on the beaches and schoolyards, etc, and the type of mass criminal activity that was planned on social media and executed by a large group with leaders and as it appears, some semblance of organization. Nothing about that is normal.

    I was wrong about one thing, however. I said there were no serious injuries associated with the mayhem downtown on 5 May. I learned earlier today that a 21 yr old victim, visiting downtown from the suburbs with his girlfriend, was attacked without provocation by 4 unknown offenders. He remains in ICU, critical condition with a fractured skull.

    His distraught parents contacted my office today, because their repeated 911 calls failed to generate an investigatory response of any kind. For the record, SCC, I don't think that's normal, either.

    5/10/2018 12:14:00 AM
First of all, what's an alderman doing up at 12:14 AM? Second, You Like Us! You Really Really Like Us!

Ok, back to seriousness. This amused us enough to break our semi-tradition of only posting overnight and it deserves front page play as soon as possible so everyone can enjoy it. For the record, we'll apologize for the "quotation marks" around the headline "It's Normal." The Alderman never actually said it was normal, and we are correcting it as we speak. This is an opinion blog and we are of the opinion that Alderman Hopkins, for whatever reason, seems to have implied that it was normal behavior. It certainly sounds like an excuse and that people in Chicago should just expect this sort of behavior during the summer from teens who (once again) are without description.

Here's the actual quote once again, sourced from the Tribune:
  • “Teenagers do have a tendency to get unruly and get uncontrolled; that happens every summer on the beaches ... it happens in the school yards across the city,” 
Anyone disagree that that quote can pretty much be construed as an excuse for the misbehavior? Because we don't recall doing any of this growing up in Chicago. Our unruliness may have involved a few games of "ding dong ditch," but nothing on the scale of property damages, assault, battery, etc.

Most disturbing however, and unaddressed by the Alderman, is the complete non-coverage by the mainstream media that a visitor - a tourist - to Chicago lies in a hospital bed, IN CRITICAL CONDITION, with a fractured skull, due to this incident. And we have read not a single word about it in the papers, seen not a single story on the television or radio, or even heard a whisper of a rumor that perhaps the superintendent or the mayor himself, has expressed sympathy for the victim and his girlfriend and family for what happened under their watch.

The reduced manpower and gutting of the so-called "quiet areas" has directly led to the current situation and we've been warning of the approaching storm for over a decade now. While we're flattered that an actual Alderman took the time to correct our misquotation, we'd be a bit happier if he (and others) corrected the far greater crimes taking place under past and current administrations at City Hall.

For years our elected officials blew off SSC and CWB as internet chatter, trolls, uninformed, etc. That is finally changing as the crime based stories you are reporting on add up to a total of a lot of evidence that Crook County Criminal Justice is broken. How many 21 year old kids in ICU will it take? They sweep it under the rug, but it adds up one family at a time. Some kid excited to be in the big city with his girlfriend gets the crap beaten out of him. Sickening.

Alderman Hopkins you need to get together with all of the other 018th and 001st district alderman and fight for more police officers
Dont stop until you have equal or greater manpower than 007 and 011 in both 001 and 018. This abuse of law abiding, taxpaying citizens and tourists has to stop. Shoot for 500 plus in each district. There was a day not so long ago that 018 had over 500 assigned officers and that didnt include the public housing unit. GET ON IT...

I commend the Aldermam for addressing the blog, even if it's through the comments section.

Now that we're acknowledging the problem, the next issue is addressing it. Roving groups of black males and females are terrorizing citizens on the streets of Chicago. I'll guarantee if this continues, one of the youths will be shot and killed by a CCL holder. Then after the riots the media will wonder aloud, how did this happen?

A quick guide to avoid downtown wildings is to ask yourself whether it's five minutes from the Red Line? If it is, you are traveling at your own risk.

Most dishonest, and ultimately dangerous, in Alderman Hopkins' response is the implication that the violence downtown is somehow different than the violence on the beach and on the playgrounds, because it is somehow orchestrated by mysterious external forces. No, Alderman, it is all the same because the people doing it are the same people. They are to blame.

Excuse me Alder-Creature Hopkins, but when I read your quote in the Tribune I certainly got the impression that YOU were excusing this Mob Action and Felonious Behavior as being "NORMAL" because YOU said it happens regularly; “Teenagers do have a tendency to get unruly and get uncontrolled; that happens every summer on the beaches ... it happens in the school yards across the city,”.

For your edification Alder-Creature Hopkins, this is the definition of 'Normal': usual, typical, or expected. THIS pretty much confirms that YOU SAID that the savagery on the Mag Mile is now 'normal' as far as YOU are concerned, anyway.

By the way Mr Hopkins, I don't know where or how YOU were raised, but as Teenagers my friends and I did NOT get 'unruly' and/or go around 'uncontrolled'. Not on the beaches, not in the schoolyards, and NOT in the Parks. And sure as Hell NOT on the Mag Mile, the Gold Coast, or the Chicago Loop!

They will never address the problem they helped create. To do so would be to admit they were wrong. They are not capable of fixing a problem that they don’t understand is a problem. They are politicians. When the wind blows, they bend in the same direction. When the public reacts, they react by first by covering their own a$$. As I see it, the aldercreatures response was just standard political procedure. Any excessive response (I.e. highlighting of any city problems) and he will get bent over the mayors desk. “Its Normal”.

Spent my first 20 years growing up in the city. Never did any of that stuff. Got a little rowdy on a Friday or Saturday night, maybe drank a few beers down by the rocks on a warm summer night. But never assaulted ,battered or robbed anyone. When the man showed up and told us to move along, we moved along. Of course, I also had two parents that didn't let us get out of hand either. Periodic "attitude adjustments" were made along the way. Wilding, assaults, robberies, carjackings are not normal behavior. That's criminal behavior. It's not "kid stuff" Someone needs to control their children.

When offenders are “from the community” the media either doesn’t cover it or if they cover it they’re ridiculously vague on the offenders description intentionally not indicating race.

First, I'm not a cop, before you blame the police as usual. The statement he made was indeed depicting that awful violent behavior as normal regardless how he words it. Personally, I don't think SCC should have apologized, but that is what decent logical rational people do. Prayers to the poor victim that was assaulted by these thugs,-yes, thugs- let's call it like it is instead of making excuses and coddling them! I hope this story goes world wide so people know not to come here to Chicago! It is not safe here! Living here is terrifying, and that's an understatement! Us natives know, but poor unsuspecting tourist's don't. To hide violent crime then make excuses for the criminals is plain wrong! But then again, there's only a few of us decent logical rational people left here.

The alderman doesn’t have to say it. Every time I work VRI I speak to at least one downtown resident who expresses great concern for their safety. They know it is the new normal. Sadly the visitors to north Michigan Ave don’t always know this and probably don’t exercise the level of caution they would if they knew how our mag mile has become. It is shameful that the city and specifically our department doesn’t warn people of this danger. Profits over lives, right Rahm?

Kudos to SCC for making the correction, it's a mark of journalistic integrity to admit errors and correct them in a prominent manner (unlike the Slum Times or Fibune which bury the "Correction" on some random page, below the fold, in small print...).

Kudos to the Alderman for at least responding to your posting. Looks like SCC is moving from 'insignificance' to Aldermanic RADAR Screens, and that's a good and a bad thing. Good because it means that they realize they have less places to hide from the Bright Disinfecting Light of The Truth. Bad because when they realize they have less places to hide, they start trying to obfuscate and inveigle even more, which makes it harder to shine the Light on the Truth, and also because they start to get mad and go on the offensive to shut off the Light.

Pretty soon, no one's going to get their entertainment fix ("news") from Slum Times or Fibune. They'll get it from bright Light blogs such as SCC, CWB, et. al. and that's a good thing.

The Reddit conspirators are alleging that CWB is sensationalizing the incident and condemned them for linking up with SCC, calling the number of people part of this organized effort to wreak habit overblown, with some claiming that cops are exaggerating people.

I myself saw a similar uprising in 2012 at 10:30 on a Saturday night in the middle of winter right at the park on the west of Michigan and Chicago. I have to emphasize it was winter, and there were easily 200 of these people punking others. I also see what its like downtown on a daily basis, and the statistics back it up.

I also know four people who have been robbed at gunpoint in the last year, all north of Madison, and some in neighborhoods like Lakeview where this kind of thing was unheard of even five years ago. One of them was actually carjacked at gunpoint in the middle of the day.

Screw Rahm and his b.s. media lackeys who are afraid of having the emperor strip them of their "access" to City Hall. Soon the Emperor will have no clothes and for all to see, one by one, people will be lining up to tell their story about his crooked, corrupt control of the spin.

Mr Alderman, you worry about misquotations when your actions reflect it. If you feel that this is something that should not be happening then you should demand action from the mayor through ordinances, request the support of other aldermen, and rally your constituents to support you in this outrage via votes, political action, and financial support. Otherwise get used to these events and the eventual loss of office you will suffer because of your words that have no substantial backing. You should help the police, back the police, and request more police with actions rather than wishes and words.

Pretty much the comment from the alderman equates to, “nothing to see here, it’s just a boys will be boys type thing.” The “boys will be boys” mentality is something seen and used by teachers, preachers, reverends, aldermen, mayors and parents on a daily basis in the ghetto. They don’t literally say boys will be boys but they make up stupid comments that almost always sound like this exact statement by the alderman.. it’s called downplaying the hell out of it. As for no investigatory response alderman you’re absolutely correct. The reason?? Well, wats your voting record and feeling about more police officers getting hired? The 001st, 012th and 018th districts each need about 100-150 more police officers just to make a dent in crime and order. Too busy and way too understaffed. Also, how have you been voting when it comes to police “reform”??? Because let me tell you alderman, CPD morale to go above and beyond is pretty much in the toilet swirling down in a death spiral due to aldermen, the mayor, the ACLU, civil attornies, Kim foxx and the cook county liberals. Please feel free to do proactive police work in this day and age.. also make sure you are being recorded doing said proactive policework while being filmed by 20 cell phones and cursed at by any onlooker who is stopping just to gawk and has no clue what is even happening. So alderman, I’m sure you will make it priority 1 to get us 2500 more police officers in the city right? Not HIRE them, but ADD them to the existing numbers. Don’t play the rahm shell game.

As a resident of 18th district I see a much smaller police presence now than ever before.
My wife bought here when Cabrini was in full effect.Nobody wanted to live here.
No we are surrounded by homes going for millions and the taxes have increased by the thousands, which I ignorantly thought were helping fund the police pensions. Unfortunately all of that tax money has bought us less police protection and greater exposure to Dude and his antics, robbery, car-jacking. And now these thugs are being exported to our low protection area where we live.
If the "caring, PC" alderman wants to continue with his slush funds and cushy gig he better step up by making sure us working citizens are protected for the summer by hiring more officers who can patrol in our once affordable neighborhood. The summer will dictate what happens in November!

Furthermore the last time a dispatcher cared about anything other then entering a code on a ticket was just about the last time COS was at 1121 S. State. There is a handful of dispatchers that work and care about their job and coworkers the rest are terrible. You dumb ass alder fuck. You dont even know who your call takers are.

Pretty much the comment from the alderman equates to, “nothing to see here, it’s just a boys will be boys type thing.” The “boys will be boys” mentality is something seen and used by teachers, preachers, reverends, aldermen, mayors and parents on a daily basis in the ghetto. They don’t literally say boys will be boys but they make up stupid comments that almost always sound like this exact statement by the alderman.. it’s called downplaying the hell out of it. As for no investigatory response alderman you’re absolutely correct. The reason?? Well, wats your voting record and feeling about more police officers getting hired? The 001st, 012th and 018th districts each need about 100-150 more police officers just to make a dent in crime and order. Too busy and way too understaffed. Also, how have you been voting when it comes to police “reform”??? Because let me tell you alderman, CPD morale to go above and beyond is pretty much in the toilet swirling down in a death spiral due to aldermen, the mayor, the ACLU, civil attornies, Kim foxx and the cook county liberals. Please feel free to do proactive police work in this day and age.. also make sure you are being recorded doing said proactive policework while being filmed by 20 cell phones and cursed at by any onlooker who is stopping just to gawk and has no clue what is even happening. So alderman, I’m sure you will make it priority 1 to get us 2500 more police officers in the city right? Not HIRE them, but ADD them to the existing numbers. Don’t play the rahm shell game.

i'm not from chicago, never been there. so just parsing the alderman's words, i think his comment is reasonable and refers to the typical kind of mischief to trouble that various ethnicities of teens get into, especially over the summer. drinking parties on the beach around a probably illegal campfire, excessive noise, loud parties at the neighbour's house , loud music blasting from car stereos etc.
i think he was separating this usual and expected, predictable behaviour that the police are used to dealing with when necessary from the violent and criminal gang behaviour of that bunch of sadistic anthropods. they should have been treated as the terrorists they are and executed on the spot. Yet there is only one arrest! That according to what i heard on Larry elder.
Obviously there is a lot of denial going on, but i am not willing to attribute that to your alderman just based on those comments.

Two, I heard absolutely nothing at all on the internet or anywhere else about this whole incident from any sort of mainstream media. Except on this website, other than that, there was a total blackout. We truly live a sorry day and age when this is allowed to happened and it seems is given a wink and a nod by the powers that be. One more reason to leave Illinois.

Hey SCC, I know you normally don't get into political races but how about a shout out for a CPD officer who announced hes running for Cook County Sheriff against Dart. His name is Mike Walsh who currently works in 018. Read his bio on his facebook page and it makes some good sense. Hes a 20 year vet of our department. Before CPD he worked in the jail and what I liked is that he claims to have been tight with Commander BAUER and after hearing all of Bauers gripes with dart and the county system Walsh wants to now carry on that fight against Dart and the soft county policies that potentially played a role in Bauers murder. I think its a good fight. He may not have a chance but I like the platform and message. Seems like a decent enough guy. His facebook Page is Michael Walsh for Cook County Sheriff. Hes looking to get signatures. I think it would be cool to get him on the ballot and get him in a debate against Dart. Could be a fun thing seeing a current Chicago Cop go up against Dart one on one.

This comment nails it. Can you imagine the outrage if a group of white punks jumped on a black family? And the outrage would be justified. But with the current crime there is nothing from anyone. Politicians, media, community - nothing. The left had finally succeeded in normalizing criminal behavior. Good law abiding citizens are just supposed to accept being victimized by certain segments of the population. The criminal code and subsequent penalties have lost their importance in blue states and urban centers.

This isn't the result of an orchestrated "media blackout" - folks, there's no "media" left in this town. Our local newsrooms have been gutted as readership and viewership has disappeared. Sure, there are a smattering of writers and editors pulling the 9-5 shift at the remaining newspapers, but those late-night ambulance chasers and police paparazzi have all but been sent packing. We're going to have to rely -and SUPPORT- entrepre'newsers like SCC and CWBChicago, or we will lose the only "fingers on the pulse" of crime in this town. Additionally, if you really want to know what's happening in your neighborhood, buy a police scanner. After 20+ years of living in New York, Charlotte and Miami, I'm amazed at the content available over the airwaves. We can't wag fingers at the messengers, because they're never coming back...

1. A comment clearly composed by a resident of any of an unquantifiable number of Alternative Realities.

2. A comment intended to mimic a comment clearly composed by a resident of any of an unquantifiable number of Alternative Realities. (presumably for entertainment purposes only)

3. A comment so absurdly, puppie shit soft quality, retarded that it MUST be intended, by it's submitter, as Sarcasm.

4. A comment that is submitted by a submitter who is authentically, sincerely, and genuinely soft as puppie shit, as an example of the variety of trash bin destined submitted comments.

5. A comment clearly, intended or not, suitable to stimulate, induce, invite, beckon, inspire, provoke, tease, attract, infuse, or otherwise act as a catalyst producing much mirthful, insightful, wickedly delightful responses from other readers.


The "I'm not from Chicago..." + "...never been there..." intro smells suspiciously of the odor of insincerity......yet.....there are such creatures....who value their own opinions on any and all subjects of which they have no knowledge whatsoever......

You are not sure of anything. If it was your kid who received no police response and was laying in a hospital with a fractured skull you wouldn’t be so cavalier in your attitude. What more do they want. Maybe a detective to appear at the hospital and start an investigation.
This is a serious case and waiting for a week to hear from a detective who says “do you know who did this to you” is not what they want or deserve. You are ignorant. What more do they want?

This is what they might want. To answer the calls to 911 and send the police when your son is getting beaten. Not a smart answer like the detectives will get a report and don’t worry after 6 days in intensive care they will show up at some date and time. Thought that why the put the dets in the district for a more immediate response
So the climate isn’t good for policing so the police shouldn’t do their jobs. Maybe the parents could have emailed an account of the incident to 311.
