Carjackings Still Extensive

  • A 23-year-old man was carjacked by two offenders Tuesday evening in the Wrigleyville neighborhood, police said.

    The victim had just entered his parked car in the 3800 block of North Kenmore around 7:55 p.m. and he was trying to close the door when two men approached him. Police said the robbers ordered the man out of the vehicle while implying that they were armed with a handgun. The victim complied with the robbers’ demands and both offenders climbed into the man’s vehicle, then sped away southbound on Kenmore.
And the ironic bit:
  • Yesterday, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and Deputy Chief Jonathan Lewin boasted that carjackings are down by 14% compared to last year and down 10% since Johnson established an anti-carjacking task force.

    Of course, whenever someone in a white shirt Chicago police uniform cites a statistic, wise listeners dive deeper to learn what was not said.
This is what they were bragging about:

Brag about a "14% drop" from last year, but don't even mention the 100% increase from just 5 years ago. Idiots one and all, playing a BS political game.

(thanks once again to the crew over at CWB - doing the only investigative work in Chicago nowadays.)

Why doesn't Johnson demand that the news media give a full description of the offenders so that the citizens may avoid being a victim or report seeing the offenders crusing the neighborhood? Gee I wonder?

What's real ironic is Jonathan Lewin is a deputy chief! Who's his juice! Should be embarrassed. That man has never made a physical arrest!

As long as it’s not a felony ( in Cook County ) why not?

Police continue to be the problem. Lisa Madigan and her Clan including the aclu need to get that Consent Decree in order. This clan needs to ratchet up the hate speech and other ugliness directed against that discriminated class of people serving as police. Lisa the election is next week so you need to turn up the viral rhetoric on the democrat party's behalf and energize that criminal base and assorted lefties.

Anti-carjacking task force? The one that goes looking for carjackers, attempts to stop one, carjacker tries to kill him by running him over, officer shoots, and then is stripped? That task force? You can have it.

I just read yet another carjacking turned into a murder. Well, maybe a murder, you know, with the current states "attorney" and all. Maybe if "regular" carjackings weren't laughed out of court by that harpy, this woman would be alive today. Shot in front of 2 kids that were in the car. But yukk it up foxx you blithering idiot.

It'd be funny if it wasn't true!
Officers who volunteer to be in any kind of a "head-hunting" unit are outta their minds!
I'm walking on eggshells for the next 7 months then off into the sunset....

Third rate St.Sabiña carnival barker shortBus Special Ed, when he’s not stuffing a double home slice down his yapper he’s waving Rahm’s Crime Is Down magic wand. He’s still here collecting a phat check and soon six figure pension and a Cook Co side job afterwards.
But what did you expect from a cowardly, backstabbing liar?

Last night a woman was shot in the head in front of her kids by a carjacker in 025.
(FakeNews calls it the NW side but really it’s the West side that happens to be north of Division.)

RevDr Special Ed PhD and Rahm have nothing to worry about and give two shits.
Cook County still letting violent armed feral of all ages back out on the streets.

Tolerant, Welcoming and Diverse.
It’s what they insist.

Get out and Vote Early.

Until Eddie Johnson has the courage to start calling out Kim Foxx and the Preckwinkle so-called bond court reform effort, nothing will change. Some leader with courage needs to start educating the public that Kim Foxx and her handler, Toni Preckwinkle, are the ones who are driving the policies that have led to this crime epidemic.

Perhaps they can explain that carjackings are down to the family of the woman killed on the 2200 block of Long during a carjacking.

And the police are the problem......

Channel 7 reports that a 21 yr. old woman is killed during an armed robbery. Her sister witnessed the incident, but Channel refuses to broadcast a description of the armed offender still at large. Some service to the community.

Hello SCC - Off Topic here but how can I send something I thought was worthy of conversation? Just read this:
and one of the victims of the car damage said this "Another resident, Eva, said she's mad at the juveniles who caused the damage and caused fear among residents. She said she can't understand the inaction of police." Please tell me what they want since damned if you do and damned if you don't.
