Now It's Personal!

  • Zestimate

    Zestimate Range
    $399,000 - $543,000

    Last 30 Day Change
    -$37,790 (-7.5 %)

    3434 W Wrightwood Ave, Chicago, IL is a single family home that contains 1,381 sq ft and was built in 1895.

    It contains 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The Zestimate for this house is $464,229, which has decreased by $37,790 in the last 30 days.
And even worse news for the neighbors:
  • Parking

    Parking features: Detached Garage
    Garage spaces: 2
    Street Parking for CPD Squads Only
So if this is the average property value loss just for Groot, imagine what it must be from one end of the block to the other.

We're talking a million dollars minimum.


Pancakes and Bullets

By some counts, this is the thirty-eighth "mass shooting" in Chicago this year (all blamed on Mississippi and Indiana by the way):
  • Lumes Pancake House in Morgan Park is known to be bustling with people of all ages on Sunday mornings — from churchgoers to families and friends. But about an hour before it was scheduled to close this Sunday, the popular breakfast spot was sprayed by bullets, leaving one person dead and four people wounded.

    At about 1:50 p.m., a man was dining under a tent at Lumes Pancake House, 11601 S. Western Ave., when a white SUV pulled up and fired shots in his direction, Chicago police and fire officials said. The 31-year-old was struck multiple times and taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. Police believe he was the intended target.

    Four other people were also struck, police said.
So the gunmen got who they were looking for, but maimed another four bystanders in the process?

Anyone know when the marches and boycotts are scheduled for this one?




You might have to zoom in to see the tiny group of pixels representing exactly how many people CPD shot this year as opposed the damage the "community" has caused. 

LeBron better go plan the next NBA boycott. Maybe he can meet with that Rizzo dork and coordinate with the Cubs.

These are Big Brains?

  • Students marched and chanted for hours Saturday on the campus of the University of Chicago and in the nearby Hyde Park and Kenwood neighborhoods. Protesters called for defunding the university police force, and funding more student programs.

    Students occupied a portion of the street near 49th and Greenwood in the Kenwood neighborhood, outside the provost’s home. Students said they planned to stay until they get a public meeting addressing their concerns.

    Hundreds of people, mostly students and young adults, marched around the university campus and surrounding neighborhoods. They called on the school to disarm University of Chicago Police Department officers, disclose the department’s budget, reduce funding by 50%, and ultimately abolish the force by 2022.
Smart people read, correct?

And smart people can read maps, right?

The only thing making that campus even remotely livable, safe and prosperous is the police. In fact, multiple police forces overlapping jurisdictions where the U of C is.

But hey, whatever floats your liberal boat we suppose.


This is Defunding?

So how many millions did Groot spend on Police OT for three days of twelve-hour shifts with all RDO's cancelled and weekend plans destroyed? Because we're getting word it was all so that under a hundred protestors could march around downtown.

You read that correctly - a "crowd" that never topped eighty-four individuals was all that showed up while a few thousand cops sat around, leaning on lampposts and planters, hoping that Groot didn't drive by and tell them to stand up straight. No worries on that score - she was out of town until last night.

And yet another weekend with next to zero tax revenue generated.

This speaks to a massive failure of intelligence gathering on the part of numerous Units and their exempt "leaders," every one of which is a phone call spot. And this one has a dollar figure attached to it in a city that is increasingly broke.

On the bright side, we're now two years ahead on our mortgage.

Fuck WGN

So WGN tells viewers to "Call this number" if they have information on the Officer Involved Shooting in 011 last night.

Problem is, the number is to COPA.

Bigger problem is that they didn't even bother to put up the number to Area Detectives to at least hint at impartiality (which we all know they don't have anyway.)

Officers Shot (UPDATES)

  • A suspect shot two Chicago police officers who returned fire during a traffic stop on the West Side, police said early Sunday.

    It happened when the officers pulled someone over in the 3300 block of West Polk Street in the city’s Homan Square neighborhood about 2:35 a.m., said Officer Guadalupe Sanchez, a police spokesman.

    At one point before the shooting, the officers asked for help because the person in the car, who had a gun, had locked the door of the car.

    A chaotic scene developed quickly when officers helping out called a 10-1 saying shots had been fired and officers were “down.’'
No word yet on any conditions of the two officers or the assailant who shot them.

UPDATE: One Officer in Good condition, one in serious to critical with a bullet through his lung.

UPDATE: 20 year old assailant also in good condition with two bullet wounds to arm and leg. A pillar of the "community" with two dozen arrests, including a number of gun charges.

UPDATE: The NBA, NHL and MLB have all announced they won't play any games today due to "the unprovoked violence against those who keep us safe from criminals."


Another 20 Shot Weekend?

  • Four people were killed and at least 13 were wounded in shootings across the city from 3 p.m. Friday into Saturday morning, according to Chicago police. has the totals at 5 dead, 14 wounded.

Nineteen casualties already....none by the police.

Groot has arrived back home from Maine as we type.

Shots Fired

  • A fleeing car theft suspect crashed into a Chicago police officer trying to pull him over, prompting the officer to open fire, not hitting anyone Saturday morning in the East Hyde Park neighborhood.

    It began about 10:15 a.m. in the South Loop, when somebody left the sport-utility vehicle running with nobody inside and it was stolen in the 1200 block of South Prairie Avenue, police said.

    A “flash message” detailing the incident was issued, and 5th District police officers saw an SUV matching the description of the one that was stolen in the 4900 block of South Lake Shore Drive in East Hyde Park and began pulling it over.

    An officer fired his gun at it when its driver rammed into the officer, injuring his leg, as the officer was trying to approach it, police said.
A speedy recover wished to the injured Officer.


History Repeating

Make no mistake, this is exactly what the ignoramuses at CTU want:

We suppose this is a "mostly peaceful" guillotine and them threatening the richest liberal in history (last week's net worth - $200 Billion) is an irony completely lost on these vapid idiots.

The guillotine was used throughout the Reign of Terror in France for numerous extra-judicious executions of political opponents. The Jacobins and Robespierre utilized it to great effect, beheading upwards of 17,000 in thirteen months. The leftists of the day fell to internal bickering however, and Robespierre was accused of not being ideologically "pure" enough, and was himself placed upon the guillotine....not too dissimilar to what we are seeing today as the "progressive" left consumes its own with "who can be more politically correct" and the antifa pussies burn democrat cities.

The CTU also fails to remember lessons from history where Mao and Stalin used them as foot soldiers in their "struggle" and then spent the next five years "re-educating" and executing every intellectual and teacher they could round up. Perhaps we'll get there again.


Leverage...and Other Leverage

Here's how NBA multi-millionaires express concern for crime sweeping the big democrat controlled cities:
  • LeBron James: We're boycotting the rest of the playoff season over a woman-beater with an active arrest warrant for rape who was armed with a knife.

  • NBA Owners: Well, we're not going to pay you for games you aren't playing.

  • Other NBA millionaires: Wha...? Let's not be too hasty. We'll play.

Hey Groot, why don't you try this with the teachers? It just might work.

Amusingly Ironic

So the mayor of Portland - home to 93 straight days of riots - wrote a letter on Friday to the President after Trump offered Federal assistance:
  • Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler does not want federal law enforcement to return to Portland. He sent an open letter to President Trump via email on Friday, declining the president's recurring offer to send federal aid to the city.

    "Dear President Trump," he wrote in the letter. "Yet again, you said you offered to aid Portland by sending in federal law enforcement to our city. On behalf of the City of Portland: No thanks."
  • About 200 protesters in Portland, Oregon, on Friday night occupied a condo complex believed to be home to Mayor Ted Wheeler.

    [...] At least three people locked themselves inside the mayor's supposed condo complex, CBS Portland affiliate KOIN reported. In a statement to KOIN, Wheeler's office said "we are monitoring the situation and hope protesters remain peaceful for the safety of other residents."
Wouldn't it be fun if those hundred cops over at 3434 W. Wrightwood stood back and let the "protestors" occupy Groot's house?

After all, Groot isn't in town and it might only be property damage. If it's under $1,000, Crimesha won't even charge them with it.

Usual Delays Ahead

As always, with the twelve-hour days, blogging kind of falls to a secondary role.

We'll try to have some lighter fare for your enjoyment. It might be delayed, lacking in depth or as simple as a picture. Comments will also be done as we can get to them.

Stay safe, stay alert.


Fiery, but Mostly Peaceful

This is how low the "media" has sunk to:

We're Not Safe!

First the businesses leave. Then, the taxpayers:
  • They understand why protesters and rioters have poured onto the streets of downtown, and some acknowledge that crime is worse in other parts of Chicago. Some also agree with protesters that something systemic needs to be changed.

    But they don’t want to wait it out here in the city, fearful of stepping outside at night and hoping for things to maybe get better.

    They want out.
They "understand." How lovely.

But their voting for morons whose speeches sound full of rainbows and unicorns and free shit for everyone, aren't a realistic form of government and in fact, undermine any sort of functional societal norms.

Go read all of these special snowflakes laments and how completely self-unaware they actually are.


Groot's Block (UPDATE)

If you were wondering what it looks like most nights, here's a shot of it:

That's a lot of manpower to prevent "property damage."

UPDATE: An e-mailer tells us that what you can see in the picture (there are more in the alley) is almost FOUR-TIMES what 016 has up on a typical midnight watch.

And 016 sent two cars at a minimum.

But Groot "deserves" to make sure her family is safe.


Cross Off Virginia

The toxic pollution of being so close to Washington DC has infected and pretty much destroyed one of the most important of the Thirteen Original Colonies:

There's a better version floating around.

It's in the CO Books citywide.


Safety "Drill"

Right before a weekend where cops are going to twelve-hour shifts?

We're sensing some subterfuge here:
  • The city of Chicago was planning to conduct a public safety drill Thursday evening in the downtown area, officials said, as crews installed barricades at multiple intersections. Office of Emergency Management and Communications officials said the drill would take place between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. in Chicago's "Central Business District."

    While city officials said access to the area would not be restricted, they noted that there would be some traffic disruptions during the drill. The perimeters for the drill include: Division Street on the north, 18th Street on the south, Clark Street on the west and Lake Shore Drive on the east.
Any bets on if the barricades are kept nearby for the weekend as intelligence is developed as to a "spontaneous" march or regularly scheduled looting?
  • Chicago Ald. Brian Hopkins of the 2nd Ward on Wednesday called the changes "preparations put into place that take time," noting that Jersey wall barriers were "moving around at strategic locations" and that decorative flower pots were being used as barricades, placed on curb lanes and sidewalks that could "easily be moved if we have to block a street."

    "There’s some tactical tools we’d like to use; we’re doing as much as we can in advance," Hopkins said. Barriers were placed at several locations, including along Michigan Avenue and on Walton. Oak Street was also converted into a one-way street, turning it into an east-to-west thoroughfare.
"....east-to-west...." In other words, away from Michigan Avenue and the Merchants who read Groot the riot act the other week.

Any reports of other "Jersey Barriers" being stockpiled in sensitive Business Districts?


CFD Contract Ratified

According to a couple of CFD readers, 2,500 votes were tabulated. We don't have the breakdown of for/against, but we're sure someone will post it shortly.

Again, Get Out of Schools

  • The Chicago Board of Education will enter into another yearlong contract with the Chicago Police Department, this time not to exceed $12.1 million. In the meantime, the board gave Chicago Public Schools seven months to come up with a comprehensive plan to help schools develop alternative school safety strategies.


    It requires CPS to provide the board with a plan by March 24 for schools “to phase out” the use of officers — a phrase that led other board members to quiz Revuluri on what exactly the resolution meant. “Phasing out means phasing out. That means that at some point there will not be SROs in schools, that’s the intent here, yes?” asked del Valle before ultimately voting in favor.
It also means another year of cops having targets on their backs for every mis-parented disruptive special snowflake that doesn't feel a learning environment is conducive to their need to be assholes.


Gee Whiz

  • Jacob Blake had a knife on the floorboard of his car when he was shot by police, said the Wisconsin Department of Justice, [...].

    The knife was recovered from the driver's side of Blake's SUV, the agency said. It did not say whether Blake was holding the knife when [...] a seven-year veteran of the Kenosha Police Department, shot him Sunday evening.

    Blake, 29, admitted to having the knife during the investigation, officials said. No other weapons were recovered.
So is the media going to retract all of their lies?

"...otherwise unarmed..."

We guess that's a hard "no."

Random Thoughts

So the NBA canceled some playoff games (we didn't know they were still playing games) over the Kenosha shooting.

So there can be 400+ black people killed in Chicago so far this year and nary a peep from the multi-millionaire Chinese tools. But one knife-carrying child rapist gets shot and the NBA decides now is the time to chime in?

No wonder their TV ratings are down 54%. Can't wait to see how bad the NFL ratings are this fall.


"Hands Up, Don't Shoot" has been proven numerous times to be a lie, but it still gets chanted all over Kenosha.

Reviewing the video, he didn't have his hands up at all. Not even a single hand. In fact, he deliberately had his hands down, which - by the rioters' logic - means he should have been shot. Right?


What's this? (click for larger version):

Ex-Cons for Community and Social Change? And they have cars supplied by whom? We're hearing they're showing up at shooting scenes and giving statements to the press?

Exporting Rioters

This is about the only place you'll hear this:
  • FYI witnesses at the scene report that at least 6 huge luxury motorcoaches arrived, a Chicago limo company. As the buses were letting people out witnesses recognized Miracle Boyd and others from the Chicago protests/riots. This was reported on social media.

    Then the owner of this limo company claimed he was not transporting protesters but transporting "troops like we do every day" however the Wisconsin National Guard responded that they use their own transportation. The Guard does not hire limos or buses from Chicago.

    Then the limo company owner said oops! Meant to say he transported military personnel from Great Lakes. But wouldn't you know it? A call to Great Lakes naval training center revealed that they had never heard of this Chicago limo company. So who was he transporting to Kenosha and who paid for those 6 motorcoaches? And why was he lying about it?
Forward this one around.


Nice Schedule Idiots

We're sure this is the product of numerous morons, but get a load of this starting Friday (from an a-mailer):
  • I work days, by bid. Friday I'm RDO Canceled, so the Department is making me work 1600 to 0400 hours

    Then Saturday, my Regular Working Day, I work 0700 to 1900 - but only if I manage to land a late car. Otherwise it's 0600 to 1800.

    So I work 24 hours out of 26 or 27 hours? This is legal?
A better question should be, "Is this safe?"

And the answer is, "No, but Groot doesn't care."

UPDATE: One rumor says this schedule runs all the way through 08 September? We're thinking Groot wants us to shoot somebody so Crimesha has some scalps to hang on the wall.

Disengage boys and girls. Disengage.

Guess Who

  • An Indiana man who allegedly tried to push a woman into the path of a CTA train downtown this spring was released from custody without being charged, then went on an arson spree before police finally caught up with him during a shoplifting incident last week. Then, he got released again. Police caught up with him two days later to finally face attempted murder and arson charges.

    Prosecutors have now charged Kevin Sukraw, age 27, with attempted murder, two counts of arson, possessing an explosive or incendiary device, and criminal damage to government property.

    But answers to questions about why he was repeatedly released without being charged for the attempted murder have been elusive.
Elusive? Seriously?

Here's what the CWB Blog was told by various spokes-weasels:
  • Asked to explain why the Sukraw was repeatedly released from custody after the alleged murder attempt, a CPD spokesperson told a reporter to contact the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office (CCSAO) “to find the reason for release.”

    In a statement, CCSAO said they weren’t aware of Sukraw until police contacted their felony review unit following his latest arrest.

    “After reviewing all of the evidence, we approved felony charges for both the attempt murder which occurred in May and the multiple arson counts from June,” the spokesperson said. “Please contact CPD for information regarding his custody status prior to the August 14 arrest.”
Talk about your typical circle-jerk. How about we make this simple? Let's play a game:

A Glimmer of Intelligence

  • Single-night rentals would be banned in Chicago through Airbnb and other online platforms in an effort backed by Mayor Lori Lightfoot to crack down on “party houses” as part of a series of stricter rules governing how the vacation rental businesses can operate in the city.

    City officials also would have an easier time cracking down on problem renters under the ordinance that passed the City Council License Committee on Tuesday.

    And residents living in denser neighborhoods such as the lakefront areas that aldermen complain get overrun with summer short-term renters would be able to join Chicagoans in parts of the city in collecting signatures to try to prohibit vacation rentals from setting up shop in their precincts.
Of course, the party houses have already moved out to the suburbs in many cases. Watch the news and you can find almost weekly examples of suburbanites being "shocked" that 300 people would show up and trash a house in the sleepy little cul-de-sac.



  • The proportion of Black cops in the Chicago Police Department will likely go down as officers retire in coming years, the city’s public safety watchdog told aldermen on Monday.

    During her annual report to the City Council Public Safety Committee, Deborah Witzburg, the city’s deputy inspector general for public safety, pointed to a “demographic cliff on the horizon” for the department at a time when the city has tried to increase its recruitment of Black police officers.
Not the best qualified, best trained, best educated. No, they want "proportional."

And this alderass jumps in with both feet:
  • Committee Chairman Ald. Chris Taliaferro, 29th, a former police officer, expressed concern with Inspector General’s Office data that shows several police districts that have high Black populations but relatively few Black cops.

    “I’m just of the opinion that in areas that are predominantly African American, like these four (police districts) and probably others that I see, having a higher concentration of African American officers would serve to reduce complaints in that area and actually produce better police services,” Taliaferro said.
For some reason, the moment black officers get seniority, they bid out of those shitholes. Can you guess why Chris? In fact, didn't you run to the Range and IAD the first chances you had? Funny, because we had one of your ex-co-workers e-mail us this story right after he retired:
  • I worked a side job years ago with this P.O.S. when he was in IAD and caught his dumb ass stealing a patron's cell phone. When we called him on it and told him it was recorded on surveillance video (it was) the phone miraculously appeared back in the lost and found drawer. [That] and the thievery he committed while working on the range should disqualify him from ever opening his mouth again. If I had it my way he would have been prosecuted for the theft caught on camera but I was overrided....sadly
Stop with the holier-than-thou bullshit Chris. There are still dozens of guys willing to come forward with the truth about your work history.

So they're passing this off as "spend more time with the family." That's such a tired old excuse and everyone knows it means, "Got caught doing something embarrassing."

Curious....Very Curious

  • Mayor Lori Lightfoot has fired Paul Stewart, her top cannabis adviser and assistant deputy mayor, though it’s still unclear what led to his ouster.

    “Mr. Stewart is no longer an employee at the Mayor’s Office. As this is a personnel matter, we will not be commenting any further,” Pat Mullane, a spokesman for the mayor’s office, said in a statement Tuesday.

    A City Hall source told the Sun-Times that Stewart was “shocked” when the news came down Monday that he was fired. Stewart didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Politics being politics (and Groot being Groot) it could be anything - illness, scandal, like we said - anything.

But then this (allegedly) happened at HQ around 1700 hours Tuesday:
  • Hush hush SCC. There was just a small "cake and coffee" farewell held at 35th Street for James Smith, the former deputy US Marshall in charge of Groot's security detail. No announcements, no press alert. Any idea what's going on?
We have no idea and our regular mole on the Groot Detail hasn't said yet. But didn't Smith have some sort of ties to cannabis security? At least that's what this article says:
  • Silver Star Protection Group offers first class protection, compliance and financial services for the lawful cannabis industry. In the corporate and personal security industry, experience matters. It’s important for our clients that Silver Star Protection Group is led by a highly qualified team with unmatched experience from all levels of law enforcement and the military.
Hopefully there's an investigative reporter reading.....hahahahahaha....sorry we couldn't keep a straight face with that one.

Welcome to the Party Pal

  • Public safety relies on an array of police, prosecutors, judges, appellate courts and elected officials working smoothly together to ensure the criminal justice system is responsible and fair.

    But the gears don’t appear to be meshing properly in Cook County — something is clearly wrong — when it comes to recent bond and electronic monitoring reforms, which are intended as alternatives to keeping suspects locked up in jail while awaiting trial.

    Most troubling? Some people charged with murder have been going home on electronic monitoring.

    We had better fix this.
Golly gee....ya think?

Some people need to be in jail, sit in jail and remain in jail until trial, especially those with a propensity for threatening witnesses, disregarding bond conditions, and continuing to re-offend while out on (undeserved) bail.

But what do we know? We've only been working in the system for a combined eight decades or so.

Disaster on Tap

  • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot will unveil her 2021 budget forecast next week, kicking off what could be a painful budget cycle for the city’s taxpayers.

    Earlier this summer, Lightfoot administration officials said next year’s budget could include a $1 billion shortfall. They also said the coronavirus pandemic put a $700 million hole in 2020′s spending plan, raising questions about how the city would plug its deficit. Lightfoot officials said the city will host a budget forecast on Monday, helping answer just how big the hole will be. But Lightfoot’s plan for plugging the yawning budget deficit will come later in the fall.

    After the forecast, Lightfoot will hold four virtual town hall meetings aimed at getting feedback from residents “with a focus on engaging youth and the Latinx and African American communities.”
Here's a bright idea dumbass - instead of engaging "youth" who are a net negative on your cash flow, try engaging taxpayers and businesses since those are the ones who will be either financing your disaster or leaving town and taking their money with them.

Is This Something?

A lot of armchair quarterbacks in the previous post. Most, if not all have been deleted.

You don't know what the officers heard or saw. The media doesn't know. The Wisconsin governor doesn't know. Groot certainly doesn't know diddley-shit.

More video is bound to come out and still pictures, like this one:

What's that in the convicted felon's hand? Could it be similar to this?

So now, cops see something that looks like a knife and according to other reports, the offender was telling them he's had a gun in the car and was going to go get it. It's a rigged game at that point.

We don't know the whole story and neither does anyone else until a full and complete investigation is undertaken.

UPDATE: And Brownie should shut up about out-of-state shootings, too. He wasn't there either and criticizing without full info is going to lose you the troops instantly.

Stay in Your Lane Groot

Once again, there seems to be an effort to make a multiple-convicted felon, with at least one weapon charge in his background, along with numerous domestic arrests for beating women, and an active Warrant, into a victim.

This after videos show him walking away from cops, disobeying completely lawful orders to stop, shrugging off a couple Taser discharges and reaching into a car containing who-knows-what.

And Groot has to weigh in to distract from her seventy-two body count weekend:

You know what would stop this shit? Listening to and obeying lawful police orders.

But as we have said here dozens of times, if Groot and other "leaders" would just come up with a list of rules, ordinances, and laws that "community members" weren't required to obey, like:
  • selling loosies,
  • or selling dope,
  • or properly licensing/maintaining their cars,
  • or waving weapons around,
  • or "Apple picking,"
  • or turnstyle jumping,
  • or beating women,
  • or looting,
  • or having warrants issued by sitting judges,
  • or fighting the police
....then the world would be a much easier place to navigate.

You have twenty-nine votes in the City Council as demonstrated last week. Why don't you use them to exempt the community from the "unjust" laws?

Don't have the balls?

Eighty-One New Bodies

  • A new class of police officers is joining the Chicago Police Department, entering the police force during the coronavirus pandemic and heightened civil unrest following the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers.

    “We’ve never had the two intersect, where you have a global pandemic and unprecedented civil unrest,” Chicago Police Supt. David Brown said at a Monday news conference. “These people are quite aware of those circumstances and that background, and yet, they are committed to this profession.”

    The 81 new probationary police officers were the first recruit class to undergo youth-led neighborhood tours, part of Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s promise for police reform, Brown said. The new officers will be trained, mentored and evaluated over the next three months.
  • Michael Lappe, vice president of the board of trustees for the Policemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago, said 59 police officers are retiring in August, with another 51 retirements set for next month. “That’s unheard of,” Lappe said. “We’re seeing double the average number of retirees each month. The average is about 24 a month.”
So CPD is only down twenty-nine officers from earlier this summer.

And that's before the really big numbers hit toward the end of the year.

Is it the West Side?

After 011's twenty-five COVID cases, Homan Square, a mere four blocks away goes for the win:
  • There have been over 50 exposure forms done last week. A dozen confirmed all on the 2nd floor at homan. 
Who's on the 2nd Floor nowadays? ERPS? What's left of Vice, Narcotics and Gangs?


And Once Again....

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday dropped its recommendation for travelers to quarantine for 14 days upon returning from trips overseas or out of state during the coronavirus pandemic.

    The CDC updated its guidelines on its website. Though the two-week recommendation was changed, the federal agency did caution travelers that they can still contract the novel coronavirus while traveling.
But it seems participating in riots and looting renders you immune to all transmissions.

Preventing riots or looting makes you susceptible.

When will Groot and Fatass change the self-quarantining "rules"?

Great Leadership Groot

As of Sunday, it has been eleven days in a row with double digit shooting victims.

Four of those days have had over twenty shot and Sunday was at 15 with ten hours to go, so it might have hit the twenty shot total, making it five of eleven days with twenty or more maimed.

In the middle of all this, 29 aldercreatures voted to table even discussing the possibility of asking governor Fat-ass for National Guard assistance. Not to patrol per se, but to free up CPD for actual crime fighting instead of camping out on corners because Groot promised the Michigan Avenue retailers one-hundred cops a night.

You can almost taste the leadership.

Speaking of Groot....

Any truth to the rumor that she attended one of the Cubs/Sox baseball games, secretly hidden in a corporate skybox?

Any truth to the other rumor that she spent the weekend in Maine? Michigan was getting too hot for her regular weekend appearances.

Supposedly Brownie left town, too. Something about interviews elsewhere?


West Side COVID Outbreak

You can imagine why the Department (and Groot) are keeping a lid on this one (from an e-mail):
  • SCC - 011 currently has twenty-five Officers on the medical for positive COVID tests, twenty from Third Watch alone. There are also another dozen on Medical awaiting test results. That's nearly 10% of the manpower, so imagine trying to get time off on the watches now. It's all some big secret because if everyone knew, there'd be 50% off awaiting test results.
Maybe they can fence off the entire District. By the time the smoke cleared, COVID might be gone along with 10% of the violent crime in the city.


Tourism is Still Dead

And so are the locals out partying:
  • [It's] Fucking DEAD. There isn’t demand for Ubers in Chicago on a Saturday night. You’ve seen previous Uber surge maps. $10.00 surge prices because people are partying.

    After the latest riot, nightlife disappeared.
It'll be 100% dead if Groot and Fatass institute the expected September shutdown, closing bars (and schools) and remaining businesses prior to the November election.


Dumbass Says What Now?

What's wrong with these morons in a single video clip:

The fun starts around the 0:25 second mark.
  • the rich people they got all this money, and they not tryin' to give us none
We must have misses that part of Civics 101. Or Econ 101. Or any of half-a-dozen other 101 level courses we took over the years.

This is today's democrat party.

UPDATE: Yes, we're well aware it's from a few years back. But it perfectly encapsulates the attitude of today's democrat voter, which is why we used it. We're hearing the same thing every day even today.

Tribune Propagandists

The Tribune continues its descent into irrelevancy, giving this asshole a platform:
  • Jeremey Johnson says he has been falsely accused of being an agitator who helped turn a Loop march last weekend into a violent clash with police. That doesn’t mean he’s denying — or confirming, for that matter — accusations that he repeatedly hit a cop with his skateboard at Wacker Drive and Michigan Avenue late Saturday afternoon.

    “To call me an agitator just flips all of the narrative on its head and completely blames protesters for agitation that police are guilty of because police officers should not be infringing upon the rights of citizens,” Johnson said Friday, a day after he was released from Cook County Jail.
So we're supposed to believe this asshole is some sort of a victim? And he's being aided and abetted by the media?

Then why won't the media show you this? (click for larger versions)

Or this?

It's almost like they don't want you to see what a scumbag this shitbird actually is.

Stay Alert

  • Armed carjackers stole an off-duty Chicago police officer’s car Friday in Bronzeville on the South Side.

    The 26-year-old man was stopped at a traffic light in his gray Dodge sedan when a white SUV rear-ended the car at 10:11 p.m near 25th Street and King Drive, according to Chicago police.

    A police source said the driver was an off-duty CPD officer. When the officer got out of the Dodge after the crash, several males with handguns exited the SUV and demanded the car.

    The officer and his passenger started walking away while the suspects drove off in the Dodge and the SUV, officials said. The officer turned around and fired shots at the carjackers as they fled, but it was not immediately clear whether anyone was hit.
The Slum Times gives a better description of the car than of the carjackers.

Is There an Attorney in the House?

Getting word from a few people:
  • ....officer struck in head with skateboard at last week’s mini-riot....Rush hospital failed to do imaging or scans and he is now presenting with visual disturbances and unable to maintain balance.
Not doing a CAT Scan or an MRI after being beaten in the head?

And after Rush's recent anti-police stances? It could certainly be argued that this contributed to the sub-standard care received by the Officer.

A good malpractice attorney could make this cop very rich rich.


Enemies Writing Policy

The Chicago Contrarian covers some of the bad actors writing policy for the Chicago Police Department, and guess what? None of them have any law enforcement experience:
  • While Ms. Lightfoot’s committee does seat social workers, an ACLU attorney, health experts, and a contingent of anti-police activists, most of the members have virtually no background in police policy or procedure and no police input has thus far been welcome in discussions held. Worse, some of the voices on this panel have affiliations with organizations known for their hostility with police or appear to harbor personal grievances against police.

    For example: Though listed as a “neutral note taker,” panelist Jim Alrutz is employed by the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) as a “student adjudication prosecutor.” Similarly, Michael Harrington, community group Network 49 co-chair, a Progressive group, spent five years as an official with the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU).

    Likewise, the ACLU is not a friend to the CPD. While an association with the ACLU, CPS or CTU should not be viewed as an indictment, it is not a secret both the CPS and CTU members are on the streets calling for police to be defunded and police to be removed from schools.

    Furthermore, another member of Ms. Lightfoot’s committee, Father Larry Dowling, pastor of Saint Agatha Parish on Chicago’s West Side, has publicly advocated for the abolition of police.
There are plenty more names, but it wouldn't be fair to steal all of the Contrarian's hard work, so pop over to his site and read it all.

Groot can mouth all the platitudes she wants in an effort to distract from her obvious biases, but actions speak much louder than words. The unspoken message here is the CPD is being deliberately steered into the iceberg.

What a Fucking Bitch

Groot really demonstrated not only tone-deafness, but her complete disconnect with reality:
  • Mayor Lori Lightfoot defended the Chicago Police Department’s ban on protesters being able to demonstrate on the block where she lives, telling reporters Thursday that she and her family at times require heightened security because of threats she receives daily.

    Lightfoot refused to elaborate on the specific threats, but said she receives them daily against herself, her wife and her home. Comparisons to how the Police Department has protected previous mayors’ homes, such as Rahm Emanuel’s Ravenswood residence, are unfair because “this is a different time like no other,” Lightfoot told reporters.
Her refusal to "elaborate on the specific threats" stinks of Ed Burke's routine of claiming he was threatened as the head of the Finance Committee and therefore needed a security detail, a city car and CPD single-digit call sign. When this was in the process of being removed, he manufactured a threat from some senile old man so he could keep his detail.

Then she really demonstrates that she thinks she is far more important that you pissants:
  • “I think that residents of this city, understanding the nature of the threats that we are receiving on a daily basis, on a daily basis, understand I have a right to make sure that my home is secure,” Lightfoot said.
This from the most virulent anti-gun mayor in Chicago history. A mayor known by insiders to carry a small derringer-type weapon in her ill-fitting suits (her keeping a hand in her pocket all the time is a well known street "tell.") Guess what Groot? Everyone has that Right, they just don't have a taxpayer funded army to exercise it.

Remember when certain neighborhoods stood up for themselves and warned interlopers threatening to wreak havoc in their peaceful parts of town that it might be a bad idea? Groot said that residents shouldn't be taking the law into their own hands....when she had (and continues) to strip peaceful neighborhoods of something that keeps them peaceful. She also wants to deny everyone the Right to own something that keeps her safe every single day and night, even when she isn't living at her main residence.

But this is what really got us riled up:
  • Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Thursday defended the heavy police presence outside her Logan Square home, at a time when police officers are stretched to the limit, citing “specific threats” made “every single day” to “my person, my wife and my home.”

    “Given the threats that I have personally received. Given the threats to my home and my family, I’m gonna do everything to make sure that they are protected. I make no apologies whatsoever for that,” the mayor said.

    “I’ve talked to my fellow mayors across the country and, seeing the kind of things that have been done to them and their family members, I’m not gonna have that happen. That’s not what my wife and my child signed up for. It’s not what my neighbors signed up for. We have a right in our home to live in peace.”
You know who else didn't "sign up" for this bitch?
  • our neighbors
  • our spouses
  • our children
But there you are, acting all high and mighty and presuming to be better than the citizens you are supposed to be serving, working the Department to death, undercutting any semblance of authority we might have, encouraging unfounded complaining, denigrating our representatives, and standing idly by while the men and women protecting you have to stand face-to-face with scumbag terrorists who are doxing them in real time, broadcasting their home addresses and encouraging the rape of their daughters.

Oh, you thought we forgot about your silence on that one? You demand protection your family because they didn't "sign up for this," but if a cop's home is attacked or their daughter gets violated while he or she is standing post to protect yours, we're supposed to what? Think they signed up for it?

You have abandoned the neighborhoods and destroyed downtown. You thought by waving the white flag, they weren't going to come for you? You are by far the most useless excuse for a politician we have seen in our lifetimes.

UPDATE: Groot is taking a bunch of fire from the Right side of the internet for this:
Groot is doing for Illinois gun sales what Sparklefarts did for national numbers.


Serial Killer on the Loose

  • A man is wanted by police for allegedly stabbing four sleeping homeless men — one fatally — since July at Grant Park and on the CTA.

    The first stabbing on July 9 left a man dead in a grassy area of Grant Park. Aaron Curry, 58, was found with a knife stuck in his neck in the 1100 block of South Michigan Avenue, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. He was found at 9 a.m. that day, but it was unclear how long he had been dead, police said.
A picture has been released:

And of course, even with this picture splashed all over the Slum Times, he's is described thusly:
  • The suspect is between 5-foot-9 to 6-foot-1, police said. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with red “Aero 1987” written on the front.
The Slum Times claim it's obvious from the picture, but then in 99 of 100 other cases refuse to even post the picture, even thought the CPD routinely releases these types of warnings with descriptions. The lengths the media will go to in order to avoid stating the obvious is a constant source of amazement.

UPDATE: Arrested? Mass Transit and the D-Unit have been working this one for a long time.


Northside Manpower

We have been provided with copies of the daily worksheets from a number of north side Districts showing exactly what we were talking about the other day. These show dangerously low manpower numbers with 016 leading the way with thirteen total cops covering the entire District for afternoons and even less on days. Those sheets show officers names and star numbers though.

But someone provided us this snapshot of 017 overnight:

That shows two sergeants and five cars covering the entirety of the 017 District on midnights. If you can, send more shots like these where we can use them immediately. Especially south siders - we would like to show the shortages citywide.

Meanwhile, Bitch-Queen has one hundred cops guarding her house (see top post) for free on the taxpayers' dime.

UPDATE: Don't expect it to get better - via email:
  • Another big march is being planned for Michigan Ave on August 29...big meeting yesterday with all the stakeholders...merchants made it clear that, if not controlled, it may be the last straw.
Groot has already destroyed uptown, downtown and all around town. She obviously wants the neighborhoods to go under next.


Four Score and More....

For the third time in four days, Chicago's casualty count exceeded twenty maimed:
  • Twenty-one people were wounded Wednesday in shootings across Chicago. It is the third time in four days that more than 20 people have been shot in the city.

    Six people were hurt in one attack in Gresham on the South Side.
According to our friends over at, this week is shaping up to be especially messy. The trend lines also look ugly with 500 homicides a mere seventeen bodies away (as of this writing).

CAPS Rises from the Grave

Of course, they're calling it something different. And they're pretending it's an original idea. But it's not and anyone with more than twenty years remember the older version:
  • Mayor Lightfoot and Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown announced Thursday the expansion of the Neighborhood Policing Initiative in three more districts, putting officers in more one-on-one contact with people in the neighborhoods.

    The Neighborhood Policing Initiative has been tried in the 25th and 15th police districts and now will be put into effect in the 9th (Deering), 10th (Ogden) and 11th (Harrison) District.

    As part of the expanded initiative, each district will rollout new District Coordination Officers (DCOs) this fall, who will work directly with community members to resolve public safety issues through collaboration and remedy neighborhood issues with the help of beat officers, detectives, aldermen, area businesses and sister agencies. To ensure DCOs are fully integrated in the neighborhoods they serve, the CPD is also launching a new community-immersion training program, completing one of Mayor Lightfoot’s 90-day reforms announced in early June.
Back when CAPS first rolled out, one of the big selling points was Beat Integrity. Officers would work the same beat all the time so as to get a handle on recurring crime situations, build a rapport with the neighborhood, perhaps spot emerging crime trends or see a "little issue" that could develop into a "big issue" and nip it in the bud. This has actually been the basis for most good police work for decades as Officers were usually the first government functionary on a neighborhood scene and would (in theory) be able to stop, intervene or redirect the emerging crime pattern. Sometimes it even worked.

But then CAPS (like all government functions) became a money-eating monstrosity and a place to hide large numbers of useless officers (and bosses - LOTS of bosses) whose only function was to generate and keep track of numbers, numbers that tracked many non-police functions, but that aldercreatures needed so they could claim to be "doing something."

Many have tried to kill CAPS. Many more have realized the amount of untracked cash and material (donations and such) that flows through the program and kept it on life support for nearly thirty years now. But it remains a program with enough small successes to keep it around in some form.

This will be no different - much high praise, many press releases, some progress with stuff that could (and should) be handled by the Ward bosses in the old days, but eventually descending into the corrupt bureaucracy and backroom politics.


Carjacking Stats

Our stat guy has been busy again (click for larger version):

The chart shows that in just under eight months, Chicago has already surpassed the entire total carjackings of 2019. Every new jacking is an increase in the....decrease? increase? Something or the other. It's shaping up to be a banner year.

#blm Not So Much

  • A 9-year-old boy and his mother were shot Wednesday afternoon on the West Side when two gunmen got out of a car and opened fire at a group of men nearby, hitting them instead, according to Chicago police.

    Both the boy and the woman, 27, were wounded in the lower back about 1:15 p.m. near the intersection of Lake Street and Central Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood, police said.

    Both were taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital, where they were stabilized, according to police and fire officials. An infant from another family fell out of a stroller during the attack and suffered minor injuries, police said. wasn't the police? But....but.....the narrative.....what about the narrative???

We're so confused.



So Groot destroys the tax base at the direction of the national party, then decides to hold employees hostage to her bad decisions:
  • Saddled with a shortfall that’s $700 million and growing, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Tuesday she will have no choice but to order employee “layoffs and furloughs” without another round of stimulus money to replace revenue lost during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Lightfoot has said repeatedly that raising property taxes is her last resort and layoffs and furloughs are next to last. She has called previous rounds of furloughs demoralizing to city workers.
No word on twelve-hour shifts with zero days off being "demoralizing." Nor about her and other commie aldercreatures encouraging unfounded complaints be filed endlessly, attempting to strip and fire officers for all manner of nonsense and violating the Contract at every turn.
  • “If we don’t get [revenue replacement] help from the federal government, we have nothing but bad choices, including looking at layoffs and looking at furloughs,” Lightfoot said.
You know, you could open up stores, conferences, concerts, sporting venues, bars....places that generate tax money. Let the COVID burn itself out (isolation reduces the "herd immunity" by limiting exposure). Stop prolonging the damage.


Houston Hiring

  • Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo has a message for disgruntled or laid off officers from around the country amid the growing nationwide trend to defund the police: "Come to Houston."

    The police chief told local news outlet KRIV-TV this week that his department is working on a new program to streamline the process for out-of-state officers to come and serve in Houston.

    The new program reportedly could consist of a 10-week academy course, instead of the typical course that lasts six months.

    "The people of Houston, they don't want less policing, they want better policing and well-trained police officers," Acevedo said as his department welcomed 44 new officers this week and look forward to the addition of 400 officers over the next several months.
Worth a look at the very least.


How About Fuck No?

  • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and CPS CEO Janice Jackson announced reforms Wednesday to the School Resource Officer program for the 2020-2021 school year.

    After weeks of allowing local school councils to make their own decisions, CPS announced Wednesday that as of this next year, 17 of the city's public high schools will no longer have Chicago police officers in their buildings.

    "We have heard from our students loud and clear," said CPS CEO Dr. Janice Jackson.
Um, don't adults run schools? Aren't people with degrees in charge? Don't parents pay taxes and serve on School Councils? The adults run schools because students (by definition) are unlearned in the ways of the world. They are, quite simply, morons. But "doctor" Jackson thinks they are a source of knowledge?
  • Fifty-five schools voted to keep their School Resource Officers, or SROs, but their partnership with CPD will undergo some changes, especially in terms of selection criteria and specific training officers will need to undergo. "This year we're moving to excellent disciplinary history. Based on the feedback we've received. We've tightened those parameters to make sure we have people in the building who are supportive of our children based on their records," said Jadine Chou, CPS chief of safety and security.

    The reforms announced Wednesday include requiring SRO officers to comply with the Welcoming City and Welcoming School ordinances to protect students from discrimination, including undocumented students. SROs will also be prohibited from entering information into the CPD Criminal Enterprise Information System. The CPD terminals will also be removed from the schools so SROs will not have access to the database.
So now the CPS dictates Chicago Police Officers? Where exactly do they fall in the disciplinary and command structures?

Hey FOP, since when does CPS dictate the duties of a Chicago Police Officer? Perhaps you should get out there and forbid members from undermining not only the Contract, but disciplinary processes fought for over the years.

Tourism is Dead

  • Navy Pier will close again rather than fight for the comparatively few visitors willing to venture onto the partially reopened lakeside destination amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    The human-made structure jutting into Lake Michigan and lined with restaurants, carnival rides and cultural destinations — many of them still closed — will shut down again Sept. 8 and stay shut until spring in order to save money and protect the attraction’s long-term financial health, pier officials announced Tuesday morning.

    “We are only seeing about 15 to 20% of the attendance that we would typically see this time of year, which is also typically our busiest time of the year,” said Marilynn Gardner, pier president and CEO. “We need to do this now to get to the other side of the pandemic.”

    Closing as the weather turns colder and visitorship typically decreases will help the pier limit its losses in a year when the not-for-profit entity was already projecting falling $20 million short of anticipated revenues.
Let's see if they trim any of the bloated six-figure salaries of the connected class rather than just laying off the hourly (and predominantly minority) workers.

But Well Done Groot! Along with....
  • Macy's moving out 
  • hundreds of conventions bailing out
  • $1.6 billion (and counting) in lost hotel revenues
  • concerts and shows that cannot be made up
....and other rumored shutdowns/lease-breaking on tap, you've completely doomed Chicago in record time.

District Shortages

Anyone notice the sheets seem a bit light lately? There's a reason for that and Groot didn't tell the aldercreatures:
  • SCC,

    Groot promised the Michigan Avenue merchants an extra 100 cops a day, so every District in the city is sending a sergeant and between four-and-six officers on 3rd watch and 1st watch. This means that everyone is short a few cars and backlogs are skyrocketing. This doesn't count the tact teams sent down every day and the 100 detectives every weekend so far.
We were told by a few e-mailers that up in 016, there are a total of thirteen officers patrolling the entire District on 3rd watch. 022 is similar, but we haven't seen a set of daily sheets.

Midnights is rumored to be even worse.


"Sacking" of Chicago

  • Riding in trucks and U-Hauls, vandals came to downtown Chicago on Sunday. They jammed streets around the Magnificent Mile, home of the city’s most important shopping district. They came prepared with tools like crowbars to pry open gates and take all the merchandise that they could pack. It was a strike directed at the heart of the city.

    While the vandals were organized, the police were not. Earlier in the day, a policeman had returned fire and wounded a suspect. False rumors spread that the suspect was an unarmed juvenile. Crowds gathered; social media lit up with menace. But the police did not deploy in force until looters flooded into places with the most valuable goods.

    The sacking of Chicago’s North Side was more than a tactical failure. For months, key officials—the state’s attorney responsible for prosecution, the mayor, and the governor—have failed to condemn criminals sufficiently or act with necessary force against such violence. They have contributed to a culture of impunity that tolerates mobs and hoodlums.
The writer encapsulates everything we've been saying for over a year now - Crimesha, Groot and Fat-ass have accomplished the figurative and literal destruction of a major American city in under a year thanks to insane policies and by standing the Rule of Law on it's head.

Go read it all, it's a very good summary.

Nice Followup Chicago

After this weekend, where 6 died and 58 were maimed (updated after a wounded person expired), the "community" pulled out the stops for Monday:
  • Twenty-one people were shot, two of them fatally, Monday in Chicago - the second straight day that more than 20 people were shot across the city.
For the week, Chicago is approaching fifty casualties already, and it's only Tuesday (as of this writing).

Groot Lied? Again?

  • The city needs more ambulances – Mayor Lori Lightfoot acknowledged the problem just last year. She told CBS 2 at the time that more ambulances were expected when the new Fire Department contract was finalized.

    That day has arrived, and guess what – there won’t be a single ambulance added. Not one. CBS 2’s [...] talked Wednesday night with the whistleblower who has been sounding the alarm on an ambulance shortage for years.

    “We know that we need more ambulances, and it’s my expectation, when we finalize a new fire contract, there will be more ambulances coming on line,” Mayor Lightfoot told [a SeeBS Troll] in December 2019. But the mayor’s new contract with the Chicago firefighters’ union doesn’t add a single additional ambulance to the streets, despite what she told our cameras last year.
We bring this up because a little birdie who drives an ambulance for CFD told us that on the west side Monday, there were approximately eighty (80+) overdoses in a sixteen hour period, including one call involving six people who had to be treated with Narcan and transported to hospitals.

So when your elderly parents or grandparents or neighbors can't get an ambulance in Mount Greenwood or on the north side, you can remember that they're all on the west side saving junkies self medicating with fentanyl laced heroin. Maybe you can mention it at the funeral.

Tuesday, August 18, 2020


If you were unfortunate to be in Day Off Group 63, as of Sunday:
  • you hadn't had a day off since 06 August;
  • you worked eleven days in a row;
  • all at least 12-hour shifts or more
That included an 84-hour work week between 09 and 15 August. No one works an 84-hour work week, let alone 132 hours in eleven days and not suffer from a massive physical (and mental) toll.

But there's Groot in her armored Tahoe, berating cops for leaning on posts or sitting on concrete in the dead of night.


Twice the Rate of Retirements

Groot won't have to cut manpower - it's undergoing self-attrition:
  • Chicago police officers have been retiring at double the normal rate recently, raising concerns that the number of new hires won’t keep pace with the number leaving.

    Michael Lappe, vice president of the board of trustees for the Policemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago, said 59 police officers are retiring in August, with another 51 retirements set for next month. “That’s unheard of,” Lappe said. “We’re seeing double the average number of retirees each month. The average is about 24 a month.” He said a change in health insurance benefits is a factor, while the police union president blames Mayor Lori Lightfoot for not backing police officers.

    Retirements in 2020 are on pace to be higher than in any of the past few years. There were 335 police retirements through the end of July, compared with 475 for all of 2019 and 339 for all of 2018, according to pension records.
We aren't sure if Lappe is only noting the Officer numbers, or the sergeants and above also, but his numbers seem to indicate only blue shirts. The totals point to a disturbing future of manpower and hiring shortages when no one wants this job.

When is the next entrance exam?


"Abuses of Discretion"

  • Special Prosecutor Dan Webb laid out a series of “operational failures” — and several false statements by Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx — as he announced on Monday the end of his investigation into the handling of hate crime claims by actor Jussie Smollett.

    Webb said Foxx and her staff made false or misleading statements about her declared recusal from the case, about how the Smollett case compared to others in the court system, about the certainty of a conviction for Smollett, and about her contacts with Smollett’s sister, actor Jurnee Smollett.

    But Webb also said he did not find evidence that the case was improperly influenced by third parties such as Tina Tchen, the onetime chief of staff to former first lady Michelle Obama, nor did he find evidence that would support criminal charges.

    In a statement, Foxx’s office said Webb’s announcement “puts to rest any implications of outside influence or criminal activity on the part of the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.” It also denied that the false statements referenced in Webb’s announcement were “deliberately inaccurate.”
So pretty much, "We lied, but you can't prove we meant to lie, therefore we'll just forget the whole thing and move on to the election."

Webb did exactly what he was hired/appointed to do - cover for the Prickwrinkle Machine stupidity that comes from being unaccountable and making sure the mud kicked up by Crimesha didn't splatter onto the national scene, dragging in Sparklefart's inner circle. Hopefully, he was well paid for his efforts.

We can't wait to leave this corrupt shithole.

Amazingly, Brownie (and Groot) think some of the so-called "leaders" of the high crime Districts are due for promotions. We have no idea how people who are utter failures at their jobs deserve any sort of advancement, but there it is.


Changes Thursday

Let's see if this comes true:
  • Cmdr. Muhammad (006) to Dep Chief OCD;

    S. Carter to Commander 006.

    Douglas to Dep Chief to replace Holt (retiring)

    (Open Slot) to replace Douglas

    Cmdr. Rubio to 014 to replace Saldana
    (until Jimmy Sanchez retires in September.
    Then Rubio to Cmdr of OCD/Gang Inv.)

    Cmdr. Saldana back to XO (demotion prior to retiring?)

    Lt. R Cruz to replace Rubio as Cmdr 004.
More to come as retirement dates approach.
