Shotspotter Shut Down Yet?

That time of year where the company takes itself offline because it is overwhelmed by fireworks and the filters aren't able to tell the difference.

And speaking of fireworks, has anyone noticed a giant uptick in Fireworks calls? In fact, the "Juneteenth" celebrations seem to have started in late April, continued through the COVID lockdown, and are still building to the 04 July weekend.

We can't recall seeing so much debris in the streets pre-Fourth ever. And you know what it brings to mind? Massive lost taxing opportunities lost to Indiana and Wisconsin. The sales tax alone for fireworks would have paid for all of the police overtime since 31 May.

But Illinois politicians never saw a monetary opportunity they couldn't screw up.

C'mon now. You know that they would just fritter that money away on their pet projects, just like every other nickel in tax money.

Overtime, Hell, police payroll is the last thing on these crooks' minds.

Illinois will legalize prostitution before they legalize fireworks. The only way fireworks gets legalized is if the mob or one of Daley’s family members starts up an IL fireworks distributor and then the State only allows one firework medallion that goes to that business. Of course all kinds of regulations will need to be passed too.

You can smoke weed on your front porch but you can't celebrate the 4th by blowing up a few fireworks.

Just legalize them already. People are going to, and have been for years, buy them from Indiana no matter what. You can't stop them. Might as well collect the taxes. Wtf

Do we really want to put that out there?
Reminds me of a pre-Fourth story making the rounds.
A guy shot 4 people during the July 4th FINALE blow-off.
He killed them all and it was premeditated.

What’s the over under for Fourth of July weekend? With all the children being killed and the family not talking you could bet they are planning some big big killing fields in Chi-Raq! As long as they stay where they live, and the so-called jungles that’s what they want to do we cannot stop it we have absolutely no ability to stop it there is no crime and punishment with the states attorney and the Democratic leader ship lets the criminals run free. When good people are told being good is not what we want you to do they support the criminals the Democratic machine, they don’t just take the police hands they throw the police to the wolves constantly, how many times can someone get hit how many times can you get Big before you finally realize don’t do your job anymore?

Its just like the marijuana debate....for years weed was illegal, but hell, everyone was smoking it, now its the same about fireworks, its illegal in Illinois, but yet, all you have to do is drive to Wisc or Indy and buy them legally then haul them back here. So, you dumb ass politicians, why not make it legal and start making money on it?? Set up rules just like the weed sales!!!! DUH. Citizens are going to buy and use them regardless of laws.

Call that 311 line and report those bangs from the
Lori Lightfoot Compound. Get specific with GeoCatching.
Baffles the Hell out of them!
BTW, the ShotSpotter Company is testing a new revenue
stream product, ShitSpotter, in the Skid Row neighborhood
of LA.

This program is nonsense. Who or what is politically connected to this company. In a time when the mayor is crying poor why does any city department waste funds on such bullshit. These funds could have been used to purchase more necessary equipment like replacing PDT's, Computer terminals in the stations, vehicles and most of all training. . It was amazing to see how fast they retrofitted a room in the stations to make a shot spotter room. Even worse that when a shot spotter notices shots it is transmitted to California for some idiot to decide if it is legit then transmit it back to the shot spotter room. Sounds pretty messed up. Is this company owned by Nancy Pelosi? Should be transmitted to OEMC. Regardless we need to defund all these politically connected vendors. The problem is City government not the police it's city hall wasting tax dollars on bullshit without any accountability.

Maybe instead of "shot spotter" you can get the National Guard to set up a Q-13 radar. It can plot the shooter and the Guardsman can pound that spot with 105mm or mortars. There would be nothing but burned flesh shreds and a pair of burned Jordans at the spot. The gun will be lying nearby. Is it over-kill? Sure, but there isn't anything intact anyways. The Taxpayers would love to see shredded assholes all over the ghetto.

Oh sure, it’s only fireworks... on the west and south sides....especially the from the late inning homers over at Comiskey since Larri’s Lockdown.

ShotsSpotters should have been staffed by StayAtHome teachers for the last 3 months and for the next 3 months.
Even still, these are computers that can be observed from home like SimpliSafe or ADT security, all for under $1 a day.

F-U Larri and yo ball’head.

Legalized weed. Possibly legalizing prostitution. Sounds like the beginnings of Sodom and Gomorrah. And we all know what happened to them.

Nothing about how the fireworks are a government plot to cause anxiety in the protesters? They're so far gone they believe it. They really do.

Could it be the bangers are using fireworks to mask their work? I would if I were them. This could run you ragged. Technology is great when it works but bad when a $1 firecracker renders it useless. LOL surprised it took this long for them to figure it out.

I live downstate.
The constant barrage of fireworks noise started in April down here as well.
Still going strong.

Nikole Hanna Jones, a racist black woman who writes for the NY Times (She claims people only came to America because it was a "safe haven for slavery" and slavery built the entire country and every good intuition in it. She got a Pulitzer for that crap.) blamed the fireworks on.....
The government.
As part of the never ending war on black people the government is setting off tons of fireworks in NYC's black neighborhoods. She doesn't know what comes after this "psychological warfare" but she knows you white devils have something planned.

Also riots are fine because "property can be replaced".
Wonder if she would feel the same way if her apartment was torched?

I am pissed at OEMC!
Some dispatchers are pandering to street supervisors to "code out"
disturbance w/fireworks calls when the caller is anonymous. "Fuck you" I say.
No CPD officer should code out a call without actually attending to it.

Be mindfall officers; you are NOT doing OEMC a favor. Your ass is put on the line through this action. Don't get caught short.

I remember an old sgt. in 008 coding out a call without going to the address.
A citizen reported seeing dogs in a store that was closed. It was a very hot day.
I don't need to tell you what happened to some dogs.

Shart-Splatter is a better name for it
because the progressive SJWs, the children
of outrage and the perpetually aggrieved
and unsatisfiable community member types
have managed to drive a shit-show like
Chicago into a bridge abutment.

Engine knocked totally off the mounts,
separated from the transmission and blown clear
through the firewall into Groot's lap...

The Policeman can do nothing but shrug
and watch the wreckage burn from a safe
distance as Groot desperately struggles
to extricate him/her/it-self from the
that flaming political vehicle.

Talk about just desserts...
Couldn't have happened to a 'nicer' person.

The upside?

The entire nation has seen the video.

Heh... we swear we heard Groot screaming
"F/U TRUMP!" as the political vehicle
is engulfed in flames.

Point & Laugh.

It's a ghetto fireworks. We always had them in July. Now it seems they around all year round. As the neighborhood changes the fireworks usage increases.
