Spending Twice for Safety

  • Residents and business owners in Chicago's Roscoe Village neighborhood have installed new security cameras as part of an effort to help police fight crime.

    The high-definition cameras are being installed at key undisclosed locations in and around the North Side neighborhood. A secure cloud will hold uploaded camera footage which can be accessed by police.

    "Residents and business have the option to tap into a seed network of 27 cameras in Roscoe Village. We hope that we show with the initial 27 cameras how effective the program can be," said David Kerber, president of the Roscoe Village Neighborhood Association.

    The cameras are part of the Roscoe Village Neighborhood Watch's Neighborhood on Watch video camera program. The group, which represents 10,000 homeowners and businesses in the neighborhood, raised the $40,000 need to pay for the cameras through fundraising at neighborhood festivals.
They also reached out to the always shorthanded Department:
  • The community's efforts to work with police come as the group celebrates Police Appreciation Day to honor the roughly 300 officers in the 19th district. A neighborhood restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner at the station.

    "In the last few years, politics made the job more difficult. The shortage of 2,000 officers in Chicago made that more difficult. So they're being stretched thin. We're trying to find a way to say thanks," said Brian Daley, a Roscoe Village resident.
We're pretty sure if 019 has 300 officers, it's down from the 500 that used to patrol 019 and 023. We're surprised that Channel 7 let the "shortage of 2,000 officers" pass the editorial process. No one wants to admit that when Clinton was in office, CPD numbered over 13,500 and nowadays, we barely have 11,500.

While we always appreciate the kind effort, it's disheartening that a community that pays massive amounts of taxes has to reach into their pockets again to try to make up for the officer shortages that Rahm and Special Ed strip from them in and endless attempt to chase votes at an obscene cost.

Again with the taxes bullshit. So it is a kid's fault that they are raised in the projects or low income, and that determines their life from the beginning? I was born and raised in the projects and if I started the same race as anyone from the start, I finished ahead. High school graduate, was accepted to several private boarding schools, college graduate and master degree. All of my kids are college graduates as well. Education should be free to some extent. This property tax bullshit is just that. Not everyone with the same credentials on paper can walk into the same bank and get a housing loan. My dad was a paramedic in the 70's. We could not get a home in Beverly or Mt Greenwood like his white friends. Let's start there. Report the bullshit crimes and not the obvious inequality when it comes to opportunity.

because of Emmanuel these people are digging in their own pockets to help the police and themselves. Rahm is such a weasel. Any normal person would be embarassed by this. Huge taxes and they cant even get a decent police presence. Community pays squat in taxes and police are tripping over themselves. And the killing continues anyway. Cant even put a bait truck to lock up the thieving pices of shit. When will all this shit come to a head and people actually fight back ?

Hell truth be told it was the Chicagoland area that put JFK in the Whitehouse and legend has it took him out as well!

Scam to get the citizens to pay connected firm to get Moore cameras for SDSC room. Somebody organized all this. Not without government support. The news admitting were down proves it a propaganda piece to advertise it as an option. If the rich are doing it the working class and the poor will ask for it. What vendors install the cameras that tie into the SDSC rooms. I bet there’s four or five to spread the graft and minimize tax profile.

City will find a way to tax those cameras. But your going to need more then cameras unless they can shoot. So you see a women being assuaged, what do you do. Call the police, they are in RAP will take 40 minutes. So you then get your gun, sorry bad idea for snowflakes, better get your bat, sorry again you would not want to injure the rapist. No you will try and reason with him, might work or not depending on your choice of words, no threats, will damage his fragile ego. Bottom line is you might be able to give police if and when they finally show up a picture of assailant. But they again you may not want to because you will be concerned it is a man of color and that might be considered racist. And god knows being called racist is the very worst thing that can possibly happen to a good NW sider. So another crime in city goes unsolved. What I would do is very simple, cave in his head with the bat or blow his frigging brains all over sidewalk see I have a CCW.

I couldn't have said it better. You grew up with the same education and the same opportunities as myself. I grew up in Beverly. My father a p.o. with 7 children. Neighborhood schools where very integrated. So what obvious inequalities are you speaking of. The key is you had a structured family who lived making good choices and lawfully.

That’s great that you and all your children are educated. I personally feel that everyone should be given an equal chance to attend school. I don’t think we should pull all officers out of the high crime areas. There are a lot of good people who live in those areas who just can’t afford to move out, or don’t want to because they’ve lived there all their lives, or because they’re apprehensive about moving into other neighborhoods due to racism etc. We have citizens in high crime areas come up to us pretty frequently to tell us that they appreciate us and are happy we’re there. To me, that makes it worth it. I’m sure there are others who disagree, but that’s a separate topic.

I also don’t think it’s fair to pull all resources from other areas of the city. If people pay taxes, they should be able to get police service. Other crimes besides shootings and murders have increased in other parts of the city because criminals know there aren’t as many police patrolling those areas and they’re less likely to get caught.

Yes, it is very unfortunate and disturbing that there is still inequality based on race and income. And I think it’s shitty of people to say “well pull all police out of the high crime areas and let them all just kill each other”, because, again, there are a lot of good people who live in high crime areas who don’t want criminals running their neighborhoods. But don’t minimize the importance of other crimes in the city just because the citizens are white, or whatever race, and have money. They deserve police service too.

What’s the answer to these problems? I have no idea. I’m just a lowly P.O. But apparently Rahm doesn’t have the answer either.

Not to mention the additional higher taxes.
They just gave the Cook Co States Activists Offfices another reason to Deny any Felony charge because the image are not sufficient.

There's a very interesting lesson here for the "community".

The residents of Roscoe Village realized there was a problem. They took it upon themselves to invest their own time and money for a solution. That's called personal responsibility.
The solutions to problems within the "community" must come from within the "community". Otherwise, things will never change.

Two biggest problems with the "community".

1. Its never their fault.
2. They always look to somebody else to fix the problem.

This is in large part driven by the Democratic narrative that the "community" is always the victim. In the final analysis, it all comes down to money, power, and votes. The Democratic Party has no interest in actually solving the problems of the "community" (despite statements to the contrary), because then the "community" would have no reason to vote Democratic. The Democrats would prefer to maintain the status quo (and their lock on money, power, and votes), and all of these killings are simply an acceptable level of casualties.

The Democratic Party is in some ways similar to the big drug companies, in that the big drug companies can't really profit from drugs that cure a disease, they much prefer drugs that have to be taken long term to simply control the symptoms, so as to enhance their profitability in the long term. Similarly, the Democratic Party doesn't really want to solve the problems in the "community", they only want ineffective solutions that don't work, so as to allow the Democrats to stay in power on the Plantation and harvest the votes in perpetuity.

Maybe one day, the "community" will wake up and realize that they are being played for a fool.

Call the next case. Not a cop.

I keep telling people, it's cheaper to warehouse criminals in prison than it is to let them roam freely.

Idiots like Rahm, Preckwinkle, Raoul, Rauner, JB FatFuk, the Libune and the rest will tell you we're saving money with "restorative justice" initiatives, but they never figure the costs people put out to deal with rampant crime -- higher insurance, security systems, higher retail prices, etc.

If anyone starts passing the hat for contributions, I'll be happy to pay for more prisons.

You can add one more cost to the equation. Private security, with current cops being redeployed to south and west sides no one left to answer camera call on an emergency basis, therefore private security will ne necessary to quell violence. The true cost of living on Real NW side just got more expensive. Add private schools (a must for Buffy and Sander), outrageous taxes and now three new security costs. Bet the number comes in well north of 35K per year. Is it really worth it?

> "Recently, the cameras caught images of two robbery suspects just before they targeted patrons inside a neighborhood bar. The hope is that photos will help apprehend them."

Wishful thinking if you believe cameras are a deterrent. CTA has how many cameras and you still have people getting beat unconscious for their belongings. And even if they aid in apprehending offenders, you still have to do something about the catch and release policy.

The residents of roughly the 10 Sector of the old 013 District have had a confidential security camera registration program since last fall. People register their cameras indicating where they face, the owner’s name, address and contact info. The only people with access to the list are the neighbors who run it and a detective who is assigned to 012. They have about 165 neighbors signed up with a total of 260 cameras. That, along with an active Watch page, means sometimes detectives get video and photos from crimes before the cases are assigned.

This group also has an active court advocates program that has made a difference in some judges’ attitudes. Judges that normally let people go set higher bail when these folks are in the room. I’ve been shocked.

You may not have the answer but I do.

When criminals commit crimes:

1. Arrest them.
2. Convict them.
3. Put them in jail.

This formula has worked really well for, I dunno, that couple thousand years or so.

Of course Toni Prickwinkle thinks there's too many blacks and browns in prison?

Ok, Toni-baloney, seems like instead of putting CRIMINALS in jail, you would rather accept the wholesale slaughter of your own people every weekend???

Maybe one day the "community" will wake up and realize Prickwinkle is a genocidal maniac.
