Where's the Video?

A reader makes a good point:
  • Where the hell are the videos? The internet if full of videos on every damn thing under the sun but rarely of this crap. I don't expect the media to show them but I am surprised they are not showing up elsewhere. We must have 634 videos of "Saint Harish" the barber but nothing on wildings on Chicago's premier shopping area? Unreal
Here's a little secret. Videos exist.

In fact, there are tens of thousands of videos that exist, totaling hundreds of hours, all filed and categorized - body cameras, blue light cameras, private security cameras, all showing not only wildings, but gun handoffs, street shootings, more than a couple gang executions, all sorts of stuff.

But the public will never see it. Neither will most cops...unless you happen to work in one of the many SDSC rooms or downtown at records, and even then, access is restricted.

Can anyone guess why the videos will never been seen? The media copuld probably get quite a few filing FOIA requests, but they won't ever ask to see it - no doubt Rahm has ordered them not to....and it runs counter to their slanted world view.

How hard is it to film a few minutes every night and forward it to the blog?? I know it will get posted. Fuck the media! Go around them and start filming it on your cell phone. Get it to the blog and I’m sure it will make its way to YouTube as well. ☠️

The videos speak truth to power about protected racial classes, diversity and inclusiveness. They go against PC and the party agenda.

Kinda hard to file a FOIA when one doesn't have a narrow time/date range to request. Asking for too much results in some kind of weasely bullshit that = a FOIA exemption, delay, etc...

Along with a list of craptastic judges not to vote for. How about a list of interesting things to FOIA?

Said video is an actual prima facie
refutation of the artfully crafted
narration that has cast The Police
as being "The Problem."

"Police Reform should happen hard,
fast and right now."

We do wonder why they're in such
a hair-on-fire hurry?

Why is there nary a mention of
"Reform" for the hyper-violent,
death-loving swing-dicks/hang-tits
inflicting much misery upon this city?

Oh wait...

"Give us more of YOUR tax dollars..."
"De-fund The Police and give that money to US!"

Why y'all looking gassed and slack-jawed?

Aren't these things part and parcel of
all that yummy and delicious "Reform"
that they're all jaw-jacking about?

Lots of video from 8/17. Lots of miss information. Similar to the "cooler" situation.
Lots of emotions, rightfully so. Lots of community members speaking out on the violence. Both ways. Most of the videos will disappear.

Some "celebrities" appeared, a few weren't welcomed with open arms. Filming live isn't always a good idea.

Not a Cop.

Call Tom Fitton from Judical Watch. They are experts at filing FOID requests. They got FBI and DOJ documents the US Congress couldn't get. When you file a FOID with, lets say the City, they will stall you. You then end up going into court to sue them to get what you requested.

Why aren’t citizens and tourists posting cellphone video of these events? Are they too busy running away from the danger? Can’t blame them for that! Rham doesn’t want these videos out because he doesn’t want Chicago to be perceived as a dangerous place, especially not in the Loop or the Mag Mile. When that happens convention business goes away, tourist business goes away, people from the ‘burbs stay in the burbs. That translates to millions of lost $$$ in tax revenues. It is certainly not in Rham’s best interests to have those videos out in the public domain.

That is FOIA, Freedom of Information Act, and anyone can file that one page form and request just about anything. Whether the city will give it to you or not is the question. But, you can find a " Guidelines for law Enforcement" on the internet, published by no less then Lisa Madigan which outlines the exceptions on this law. You can appeal any denials directly to her office. I have used this law to obtain information from suburban police departments. They don't like it for sure. I even had a useless chief yell at me. Go for it.The Better Government Association also publishes guidelines for using FOIA with your local government.

Excellent point! If these videos were posted weekly it will be difficult to explain them away as a rare occurrence or something that just happens every once and awhile. Colin Flarity on YouTube does daily videos on this topic and would gladly post any video sent to him. The officers who are downtown have to start recording them that’s the only way it’s going to get any attention.

The department wants to restrict access to these videos, just like they tried to have the picture removed off Facebook that was posted by a citizen of the M/1 walking down Devon and Harlem with a rifle. This department is absolutely pathetic and it should personally bother every police officer that they go through all this to cover up the obvious, they have no intention on fixing any of these issues and have backed themselves into a corner by constantly suppressing in this case videos and catering to “the community”.
These videos should have a blog post every Monday morning showing what’s really going on downtown. Embarrass the dept, fuck them and their bullshit already if it gets enough attention from the blog maybe they will have to actually explain something and they will look like total idiots after trying to hide it for so long. Taking cell phone video is an excellent idea to expose how chaotic it really is.

Here is an idea that has been long overdue.

With all the sex abuse going on in the catholic church and a wide variety of other denominations, the time has come to install cameras in them.

For starters, the interior of st sabina's should have cameras installed throughout the complex. Also fr flakey should be wearinga body camera at all times, and a dash camera in his 2018 Black CADILLAC ESCALADE( only the finest for the padre)to capture his erratic driving. And not to forget rev JJ of operation push to capture his shakedowns of untold corporations.

When everyone else wears a body camera to capture them at their finest moments,, then and only then will we see the real behavior of these so called leaders of the community.

Politicians should be under camera 24/7.

This is huge. Thank you for writing about this, SCC. The active and intentional suppression of actual videos is mind-blowing. Take, for example, the convicted felon walking down Harlem and Devon with a rifle pointing at a cars going by. the city was more concerned with trying to force Facebook to take the picture down then they were with actually dealing with the issue. like you said, there have to be tens of thousands of videos of ghetto Antics, just to take place in Chicago, there are actively suppressed by Outlets like YouTube and the mainstream media. This is huge, please stick with this topic 🎃

Get that rock solid, unedited footage that Rahm and Water Tower Place doesn’t want the general public to see! If I had the time and resources, I’d gladly do it myself while knocking back a few adult beverages.

The media is using "Eat Me Last" logic. They feel if they pander, capitulate and make nice, they won't be swept away in the coming storm. "Hey! I'm one of you. I'm with you bro! Don't you remember? Don't hurt me." I love seeing journalist's asses get beaten by that Antifa scum. Like they're supposed to be untouchable. In the end, all they see is skin color. So when the shit storm comes, the likes of Eric Zorn, Rex Hupke, Carol Marin, all the panderers, better crawl under a rock or get a really deep tan!

Does anyone REALLY KNOW (FACT not a guess-(es)timation) of how many dollars $$$$$$$$$ has been given to the community that fails to work (pun) collectively and independently?

Note: This is aside from all the job opportunities which have been given with nary an experience, the lowering of standards to ensure positive outcomes in the working world, the community centers to build and reinforce values, morals, and commitment, the unheard of rents in MY Reality (NOT) - $200 or even less a month for an apartment with no further expenses (utilities, phone, internet, food (stamps/link) in theirs.

At what point does this "community" stand together accounting for - they are the problem - they are always looking to deflect blame - that the Hispanic community now surpasses them - in education, in job reality, in independence, in family, and in collectivism.

Sad state of affairs.

That is one thing I have to about the police in the UK, for sure they have their PC problems especially with the immigrant issue forced on the country by the EU and the moronic politicians they have. The Police in the UK have cameras everywhere. I have friends over there and they tell me if the people monitoring the cameras see something the police are on the scene very fast. Of course the problem than is the cop that shows up it not armed so if anything more than a dirty look is needed they have to call in an armed policemen. I asked coppers I know over there why they don't arm themselves. They tell me the hassle is not worth it, psychiatric testing, back ground checks, etc.
