Save the Date

From a regular of ours:
  • There will be a 50th Anniversary Memorial Tribute, honoring Chicago Police Officer Tony Rizzato and Sgt. Jim Severin on Saturday, July 18, 2020 at 11:00 a.m.

    (See attached flyer)

    Kindly note that the family has graciously coordinated this event with a Go Fund Me Page on behalf of the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation, "Get Behind The Vest" initiative to help provide additional replacement ballistic vests for all active members of the Chicago Police Department.
Here's the link to the GoFundMe site.

Here's the flyer (click for larger version):

I dont like Go Fund Me because they take 8% off the top of all donations. Theyre entitled to make a profit, but I dont want to help them.

I recommend just donating to either of these charities directly.

Recently the FOP had a no charge site on their website whereby one could donate to the family of Officer MENG who was in that car in the garage situation.

I use that method.

Besides which I wouldnt be surprised of the Go Fund Me people were anti police leftists

Thanks

Rizzo’ brother was working the range when o got otj in 70’. Nick was a super first class guy. He always carries his brothers death on
his shoulder. Don’t know if Nick is still with is
I won’t rank about the ghetto trash that killed these top of
Line men of men.
May they remain watching over all the street coppers on the CPD. Rest easy guys in Gods hands for eternity. If brother Nicky

So sad for all men who lost their lives on the job by rabid mutts.

In the, late 90' po's went over the radio and said "hold me down at xxxxx location for a little walk and talk". I thought it was a cute choice of words. The word choices that were demanded by the department have changed in my life. It has since been called positive loitering, community interaction, and now "positive community interaction". Although a sad flyer, the reality of being killed by sniper fire by Cabrini Green Occipying Forces in important for younger PO's to read.

I was working on the South side the day this happened. Listening to city wide as things unfolded, wishing I could go and help. It is something I will never forget. It is too bad the public and the political class have forgotten, not only these two brave officers, but everything the police have done for this city.

The beauty of this is that civilians, such a myself, can hopefully make a difference in their own way. I always "Get Behind the Vest" and purchase vests for our Wonderful Officers!

Way back, as a new policeman, I occasionally worked a beat car with Tony Rizzato.
One evening as we sat next to one another at roll call, he told me he would be going to a new unit called 'walk and talk,' where he would deal with kids mostly, trying to keep them straight. He seemed happy about it so I congratulated him, but privately thought I wouldn't like it, since I don't like kids much.
Next I heard of him was after he and Sgt. Severin were shot. A shame. Tony was a good guy.

I bid to 018 (113 W. Chicago Ave.) back in the early-80's after working 013 for 7+ years. When I arrived, I thought I had died and went to heaven. Although the murders of R&S occurred many years earlier, their deaths were not forgotten by nearly all of the coppers that were assigned to 018 back then. If I remember correctly, a bronze plaque was dedicated and placed near the location where this horrible crime took place. To compound this tragedy, for many years, Rizzato's elderly father would come and visit this site, and have to 'clean' the filth and graffiti from this memorial that the pos community and gang-bangers would tag it with. To her credit, Mayor Jane Byrne relocated the memorial-plaque to the CPD academy for safekeeping, and to be displayed to an audience of human beings that could understand and appreciate the ultimate sacrifice that these two men made. All of the community's leadership and responsible adults should hang their heads as to how this small shrine was desecrated. Where I come from, that memorial would have been safeguarded and tended to by respectful and appreciative folks. I strongly encourage all to show their support to these two families, and take the time to attend this remembrance of these two fine men.

They changed it.

Now, there's a standard transaction fee of 2.9% plus $0.30 per donation that allows for credit card processing and safe transfer of funds.

Not free, but is anything anymore?

Dear 29 and a day, when you directly donate they don’t take the 8%. That’s done if a person receives the money. We wanted it easy for people to donate. Time for the Severin’s to say thanks for 50 years of support. If you donate directly to CPMF please make it for the Severin: Rizzato tribute. Thank you so much

Please allow a personal anecdote, but one that remains with me ...
Reading a remembrance of this tragedy a couple years ago, a newspaper story quoted (actually an image of the it) included both their home addresses - different world back then.

Seeing them, I realized Officer Rizzato lived on the street my early morning (usually still dark) paper route. I don't know if I tossed a Trib or Times up on his porch (the neighborhood a mix of brick 2 flats & frame houses) ... but I pushed my cart past his every morning. Just a quiet tree-lined "north side" block, nice families lived on.

Ofc Severin's home further NW and in a "nicer" area, I was kinda surprised a cop could even afford but good for him he could pull it off ...

Forgive please this memory, 1970, I was in 7th grade ... 50 years ago ...
Rest in peace Ofc. Rizzato & Sgt.Severin.

Are well dressed, polite and well mannered civilians allowed to attend this event?

ON a related note - I want to do more than just type on my keyboard and write letters and make calls to local and national pols, media regarding Chicago gang violence, BLM/Antifa riots/terrorism.

It's the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Communist takeover/blood bath in Russia. My grandfather fought in the White Army in the Russian Civil War - he/our side, the good side lost and he had to flee to America and became a professor at the University of Chicago.

OK, there isn't any White army (yet) to fight these same murderous Bolshevik, Communists, Antifa SH*#& here or places like Seattle and Portland OR, but I would just like to show a little courage in public and let the general public know that regular, decent Americans haven't completely conceded Chicago streets to the worst criminals and communists.

Can some current and retired police officers give me some tips about what to do and not do in say - handing out fliers presenting true HeyJackAss crime stats or short essays, commentaries about many recent Leftist, BLM race hoaxes.

How should I/we dress? I have a good bicycle helmet with a plastic visor, some pads, leather coat. I have a concealed carry license and a legal revolver but I rare carry and have never used it - think even if it was case of life or death self defense against the worst Chicago gang members or Antifa I'd be screwed if I drew a gun.

If I get in a self defense fight with Antifa/BLM thugs how will most street Chicago cops react. I don't want to go to Cook County Jail and get raped or murdered by the gang bangers or maybe even Tom Dart's prison guards.

I'm mid 50s, athletic - some boxing training and training in cane self defense.

I've been at some demonstrations here in Chicago (anti Sharia protest), protest against Kim Foxx for punting on Jussie Smollet. I 've done OK being screamed at an threatened by Leftist Communists, but not open gang members.

If I/we do get attacked by Antifa, BLM any suggestions? I note that the Proud Boys (just basic patriotic fraternity open to all races, gays, not anti Jewish or anti Black) got seriously screwed in New York State when they got attacked by Antifa goons and just through a few punches in return, nobody was hurt and the Antifa Leftists didn't even press charges, but some Lib Leftist Marxist NY state judge gave one of the Proud Boys 15 YEARS IN JAIL. The judges justification was all about bad things that supposedly happened in Germany 80 years ago! How's that for legal logic.

Again, my goal isn't to try to change the course of history or to physically fight and kill the worst Communists like my grandfather did in Russia 100 years ago. I just want to do my personal best and to show say, Chicago suburban commuters that we haven't completely given up Chicago to the Communists, Gang members, lying media.

Thanks in advance.

in 20 years or less all of us retired copper'of the murders/era of our brothers will be probably seeing them both.
