Residency Proposal

Boom! Shots fired at the inbred midget from Massillon:

  • The Fraternal Order of Police is demanding a 17% pay raise over four years — and half that amount for officers who are allowed to live outside the city — in a financial-only deal that includes none of the 40 disciplinary reforms demanded by Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

    Last week, Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara stormed out of negotiations after Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s team offered his members the same 10% pay raise over four years awarded to Chicago firefighters in exchange for higher health care contributions, but tacked on 17 pages including 40 disciplinary reforms.

    Catanzara was so insulted by the city’s offer and the conditions Lightfoot attached to it, he vowed to make a financial-only counter-offer and demand an up-or-down vote by the City Council.

    Now, Catanzara has a new offer — minus the demand for an up-or-down Council vote.

    His new offer would give a choice to Chicago police officers who have long chafed at the city’s residency rule: Take the full 17% — with all but 3% retroactive — and continue to live in the city. Or, accept half that amount and be free to move to the suburbs.

And he used a lot of charged language throwing the gauntlet at Groot:

  • “We want to be treated the same as the sergeants,” Catanzara said, noting that union settled on the financial aspect before ending up in arbitration over disciplinary changes.

    “When do we get our life back? If they want to treat us like rented mules, well then, start paying us like rented mules. We’re not gonna sit there and just be slaves.”

    Catanzara said the city’s chief labor negotiator Jim Franczek told him he could not go to the City Council and argue for a financial-only package that did not also include disciplinary changes in response to the demand for police reform in Chicago and across the nation that followed the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

    “Which was baloney. He was too afraid to do it. ... They don’t want to get yelled at by the aldermen. Oh, boo-hoo-hoo. They always try to take the easiest path thinking like there’s no other options. Well, we’re not rolling over and playing dead anymore,” he said.

Catanzara is correct in that the sergeants got a financial package separate from the rest of the Contract. And (our opinion) it's a good move to throw residency on the table at this point. The State Law regarding residency only applies to cities over one million - meaning only Chicago. So negotiate it.

Groot hates cops and our representation. The feeling is mutual. So why insist on keeping us here? Groot is about to run into the buzzsaw of reality regarding hiring that is hitting every jurisdiction nationwide - no one is taking the job, and Groot killing the city has made it that less desirable. Might as well take the shot.

Defund Groot!

Where does this inbred dwarf get off spending taxpayer money on these advertisements?

  • Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s administration is using electronic billboards on city property to honor Breonna Taylor following protests in Chicago this week in response to her fatal shooting by police in Louisville, saying the campaign on signs alongside local expressways is not politically motivated despite some aldermanic criticism.

    The slogan “#SayHerName," which many Taylor supporters have used to try to keep attention on her case, started appearing on digital billboards in Chicago after a grand jury in Kentucky opted this week not to indict any Louisville police officers in her death.

Remember who they are trying to make into some sort of hero:


You won't find any mainstream media coverage on this.

Again, Disband the FBI

As every cop knows, the feebs would gladly let a dozen shooters go to jail one cop for process crimes. They're crooked - just not in the traditional thought process. It turns out that Trump was correct again - the FBI was spying on his campaign at the behest of Sparklefarts:

  • Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents tasked by fired former Director James Comey to take down Donald Trump during and after the 2016 election were so concerned about the agency’s potentially illegal behavior that they purchased liability insurance to protect themselves less than two weeks before Trump was inaugurated president, previously hidden FBI text messages show. The explosive new communications and internal FBI notes were disclosed in federal court filings today from Sidney Powell, the attorney who heads Michael Flynn’s legal defense team.

    “[W]e all went and purchased professional liability insurance,” one agent texted on Jan. 10, 2017, the same day CNN leaked details that then-President-elect Trump had been briefed by Comey about the bogus Christopher Steele dossier. That briefing of Trump was used as a pretext to legitimize the debunked dossier, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign and compiled by a foreign intelligence officer who was working for a sanctioned Russian oligarch.

The entire investigative team bought liability insurance? That's not a Red Flag or anything, right? Go read it all - lots of links to actual investigative work.

The CIA was doing the same thing:

  • DEVELOPING: Investigators have learned that Obama CIA Director John Brennan ran a secret task force out of Langley with its own separate budget to investigate Trump campaign and alleged ties to Russia. Task force set up before FBI officially launched its own probe on 07/31/16

A lot of the same thing:

  • Former CIA Director John Brennan personally edited a crucial section of the intelligence report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and assigned a political ally to take a lead role in writing it after career analysts disputed Brennan's take that Russian leader Vladimir Putin intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump clinch the White House, according to two senior U.S. intelligence officials who have seen classified materials detailing Brennan’s role in drafting the document.

    The explosive conclusion Brennan inserted into the report was used to help justify continuing the Trump-Russia “collusion” investigation, which had been launched by the FBI in 2016. It was picked up after the election by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who in the end found no proof that Trump or his campaign conspired with Moscow.

Brennan concealed evidence that Putin supported Clinton - because he had all sorts of evidence with which to blackmail her.

Now there is ample evidence that two of most powerful investigative arms of the US Government were actively working to bring down the duly elected president. If you don't know or remember what the Church Committee was back in 1975, you ought to read up on it because these abuses are eerily reminiscent of those days.

You have to be a real political geek to get this deep into the weeds, but once you do...whoa.

If true, it might be the first such event since the that entire Roll Call refused to hit the streets back in the day or the Police Wives blocked the parking lot to get rid of 99 cars after dark.

That's Groot's Census Horse Abuser's steed, tucked away in a yard in Englewood this past spring. We recall some roll call banter about a horse being found wandering the streets, but since we don't social media, we didn't really follow it. Now someone has dug up the pictures that were all over Instagram, Twitter and Facebook because of the Aggravated Animal Abuse charges leveled at Groot's publicity stunt.

The yard was described as mud, garbage and horse-shit strewn, with a single bale of hay and no shelter as temperatures dipped into the 30's. Had it been a bit warmer, we're certain the insect problem would have been overwhelming. Why this wasn't a bigger deal, we'll never know.

Promised Tax Increase vs Stealth Increase

Did this moron run out of weed or something?

  • Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton warned Thursday that Illinoisans could face an across-the-board income tax hike of at least 20% if voters reject a proposed constitutional amendment to shift the state from a mandated flat-rate tax to a graduated-rate tax based on income.

    For weeks, Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritkzer’s administration has cautioned that severe budget cuts could be on the way if voters don’t approve the proposed amendment to overhaul Illinois' income tax system. But Stratton’s threat that all taxpayers, regardless of income, could face a tax hike unless the amendment passes on Nov. 3 appeared to represent a new shift in strategy for the Pritzker administration.

    “To adequately address the budget crisis under our current tax system, lawmakers will be forced to consider raising income taxes on all Illinois residents by at least 20% regardless of their level of income,” Stratton said during a virtual rally on behalf of the pro-amendment Vote Yes for Fairness group that marked the start of voting in Illinois.

We remember a time long ago when a democrat ran for president on a platform promising to raise taxes. Mondale lost that one 525 to 13.

We also remember another idiot who reneged on his pledge to not raise taxes. Bush the Elder lost that one 370 to 168.

But somehow, we have a feeling that Fatass's "Fair Tax" is going to have a good showing, even when it turns out he's been lying about raising taxes on the wealthy only. Does anyone know what happened to New Jersey and New York when they passed these "Tax the Wealthy" proposals?

  • the wealthy left - because they could afford to. Even if it was just a paper move to switch their primary residences.

And guess who got slapped with the massive tax increases when the wealthy weren't around? 

  • the middle class and working poor.

Illinois has spent years making their voters the most ignorant in the nation. Voting for people who promise to release felons, empty prisons, make buying a gun impossible. Voting for an open ended tax increase would be par for the idiocy.

RICO Charges?

So there was a U-Haul truck dropping off riot supplies in Louisville the other night - shields, signs, water, possible wooden weapons. There are even pictures - here's one, but you can search for others:


Gateway Pundit summarizes an actual investigative journalist who tracked down the renter of the truck. She's part of the "Louisville Bail Project," a George Soros backed initiative to pay for miscreants and rioters to get out of jail to continue the destruction of private property. Soros, of course, it the nazi collaborator who funded - and continues to fund - left wing DA's and States Attorneys who outright refuse to follow their Oaths of Office and prosecute criminals.

This would seem to be a perfect case for RICO charges against rioters, blamfita and their hangers-on. These assholes are fomenting terrorist across the country and deliberately targeting and injuring police officers.

Keep an eye out for U-Haul trucks parked strategically where rioters are known to gather.

Crimesha At it Again (UPDATE)

There really needs to be a push by O'Brien to unseat this useless witch:

  • Tomorrow 24 Sep 20, Ronnie Carasquillo who was convicted of murdering P.O. Terrence LOFTUS#5701 is up for a parole hearing. The Cook County States Attorney Kim FOXX withdrew her objection for parole for Carasquillo.

    This has never happened before, where a States Attorney in Cook County or anywhere in the state of Illinois has not objected to the parole for a person convicted of murdering a police officer.

    Last year when he was up for parole FOXX wrote an 8 page objection to Carasquillo/s request for parole. Again, FOXX GAVE NO REASON FOR WITHDRAWING HER OBJECTION.
Let's go O'Brien - get it done.
 
UPDATE: Parole denied by a single vote.

"Peaceful" Protests

That was, until the gunfire:

  • Hours after a Kentucky grand jury brought no charges against Louisville police for Breonna Taylor’s death and protesters took to the streets, authorities said two officers were shot and wounded Wednesday night during the demonstrations expressing anger over the killings of Black people at the hands of police.

    Interim Louisville Police Chief Robert Schroeder said a suspect was in custody but did not offer details about whether that person was participating in the demonstrations. He says both officers are expected to recover, and one is undergoing surgery.

And once again, we're left speechless by the campaign to make a criminal into a hero.

You doubt it? Here's the report that you'll never see in the lame-stream media. In summary:

  • She was on jailhouse recordings running drugs for her man
  • She was under surveillance for months - this wasn't a one-off incident
  • The warrant was for her car and apartment - the cops were exactly where the warrant was issued for

By the way - the "no knock" story? It was a lie. Her boyfriend admitted to the Grand Jury that the Officers knocked. And he admitted shooting at police - wounding one - which drew return fire. He should have been charged and prosecuted for what we call Felony Murder in Illinois, but the prosecutor dumped the charge because "the narrative" was more important than a few cops' jobs and lives.

So once again, our lives are disrupted for a dope dealing criminal.

    …Horse has saddle sores, injuries to its Coronet band, and multiple wounds from being canter on concrete without shoes.

    …While on highway, horse galloped for short distances and also walked slowly “as if it was to the point of exhaustion.”

Groot Speaks with Forked Tongue

Groot thinks she can run a business?

  • Mayor Lori Lightfoot warned ComEd’s top executive this week that the city will not renew its utility agreement with the electric company unless she receives a “substantive” plan that details goals for ethics reform, an end to residential disconnections, help with the city’s clean energy goals and other measures.

    In a letter sent Tuesday to ComEd CEO Joseph Dominguez, Lightfoot chided the utility for not committing broadly to ending all disconnections during the COVID-19 pandemic and the recession. In July, she called out Dominguez in another letter for the company’s role in a federal corruption probe. ComEd confessed to paying $1.3 million in bribes to associates of Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan.

    Lightfoot’s administration said this summer — and officials reiterated at a public hearing Tuesday — that it would be too expensive, costing billions of dollars, to follow through on a proposed city takeover of the power grid from ComEd. That admission eliminated some leverage the mayor had in negotiations.

Groot has been claiming for months that she doesn't have any money (the last paragraph says it would cost billions she doesn't have) but she expects ComEd to stop shutoffs that - essentially - give away electricity for free.

How do you run a business without income? You think this would have been a clue:

  • With schools closed, restaurants shut down and an economic collapse looming in the early weeks of the pandemic, Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced plans to stop ticketing, booting and impounding cars throughout the city to ease financial pressures on Chicagoans.

    “The only ticketing that is going to be happening is if there is a car or other vehicle posing some kind of public safety threat. But the normal ticketing should be suspended until April 30,” she said during a March 18 news conference. “So, for example, an expired meter that is otherwise legally parked and not posing a public safety threat, you should not be getting ticketed.”

    [...] Try telling that to anyone else who got hit with one of the more than 35,000 parking tickets the city issued during the period Lightfoot told the public they’d be getting a break.

    [...] A Tribune analysis of city parking data found that nearly half of the tickets were given to cars for expired meters in the downtown area — an infraction Lightfoot specifically had singled out as exempted from punishment.

How about opening businesses so people can make money?

Phony Endorses Horse Abuse

He was awfully quiet during the big church scandals.

He's all for horse abuse though:

  • Father Michael Pfleger and activist Ja’Mal Green called for authorities to release Adam Hollingsworth — better known as the Dread Head Cowboy — from police custody and drop charges against him for riding a horse on the Dan Ryan Expressway during Monday’s evening rush as a form of protest against kids getting shot in Chicago.

    “I’m with the Cowboy 100% and I think these charges need to be dropped” Pfleger, who led 5,000 people onto the Dan Ryan in 2018 to protest violence, told the Chicago Sun-Times in a phone call Tuesday.

    “I think we need to do a whole lot more disruption of shopping and traffic and business as usual until we deal with this violence.”

But don't march in the 'hoods where kids are getting shot by the wagonload though.

Her new mission is for us to not see a contract in her first term. I sure hope the Union gets a lot more radical or we are in for rough waters.

Good thing it isn't up to her. If it goes to Arbitration, he's bound by precedent and retro has been awarded for every single contract when the City decided not to negotiate in good faith. Also, every other Union has gotten retro.

Layoffs are another fantasy. If the City would offer a decent buyout package, she'd get more than enough people to leave. In fact, this is going to be a near-record year regardless even without a Contract.

More of This Please

Great news from Waukegan:

  • An occupant of a Waukegan house fatally shot two men who were apparently trying to break into the home Tuesday morning, according to police.

    A resident called police to report that the men, at least one of whom was armed, were attempting to enter the residence in the 100 block of Frolic Avenue. When police arrived, they found the bodies of the two men in the front yard of the house. They also recovered a handgun by the bodies, Waukegan Police Commander Joe Florip said.

    Police declined to provide many details in the hours after the shooting, as authorities gathered information from witnesses and combed over the scene, a small home in what area residents said is a normally quiet neighborhood.

Looking forward, this has driven down the Waukegan crime rate by a full percentage point. Good job citizen!

Commie Not Fired After All

So it seems that the commie aldercreatures AREN'T firing those who threaten violence and denigrate the police -  and the community is "worried":

  • Two aldermen are facing backlash after recent social media posts from their staffers were critical of police, with residents saying the posts are worrisome as the wards face a spike in violent crime. The issue involved Facebook and Twitter posts from the chief of staff of Ald. Rossana Rodriguez (33rd) and an aide for Ald. Daniel La Spata (1st). The posts are from July and August, but they stirred controversy among some neighbors last week.

    Ashley Galvan Ramos, a constituent services liaison in La Spata’s office, referred to police officers as “pigs” in a July 18 tweet in the aftermath of violent clashes between officers and protesters near the Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park.

    “The aggression and brutality on YOUTH last night was a direct attack on YOUTH,” Ramos tweeted. “Lori Lightfoot and her wife wanted to create a networking group for YOUTH to ‘stay off the streets’ but can’t even call her pigs out? She can’t even see wtf she’s doing wrong.”

And then the one we covered before:

  • On Aug. 24, Vicko Alvarez, Rodriguez’s chief of staff, shared a Sun-Times article on Facebook and wrote “Defund and abolish. You can get it done through hearings at City Hall or the people will get it done on the streets by fire.”

    Though rumors spread on social media that Rodriguez fired Alvarez over the post, the alderman said she has no intention of firing the staffer. Rodriguez said her office received threats after the controversial post. Rodriguez said her office has been dealing with backlash from Alvarez’s Facebook post for weeks, with union leadership of the Chicago Fire Department suggesting its members to call her office to complain.

    La Spata’s spokesman Joshua Smyser-DeLeon would not say if Ramos would face discipline, saying what employees post on their personal accounts is protected by the First Amendment.

Which is shocking because the Department is trying to suspend/fire a number of Officers for what they posted on social media off duty and this blog itself was the subject of an illegal First Amendment Investigation run by the now-Deputy Superintendent [corrected] of Constitutional Policing.
 
Quite the double standard for commies it would seem.

Blame the Virus

Via Jack Dunphy, if you can't blame the police and you're forbidden from blaming the politicians, blame the virus:

  • Chief Michel Moore, demonstrating the type of shameless political pandering that propelled him into the post, attributes L.A.’s crime spike to the COVID-19 pandemic, which, he says, has led to economic despair and heightened interpersonal dramas.

    “What we’re sensing is a lot of stress, a lot of communities that are on edge, a certain amount of depression,” Moore said at a recent meeting of the city’s police commission. Even more laughably, he said virus-related restrictions on hospital visits have contributed to the bloodshed. Quoting from the Los Angeles Times:

    [Moore] also said that pandemic-related rules barring visitors from local hospitals have prevented trained violence intervention workers from visiting the bedsides of surviving shooting victims — eliminating the opportunity to provide resources and emotional support, address their anger and help prevent retaliatory violence on the streets.

    Chief Moore is not as hopelessly dense as that statement would indicate. In speaking such gibberish he is merely reflecting the prevailing sentiments of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and most members of the city council, to whom he is in debt for his handsomely compensated position, and who, like himself, would prefer to attribute their crime problem to something they cannot control and for which they, therefore, cannot be blamed.

Indeed - go read it all.

Nice System Crimesha

This is from a few days ago, but get a load of this:

  • A parole escapee left his 4-year-old daughter alone in his car “with an AR-15 rifle and a whole lot of heroin” when he decided to run from police in Monday morning, a Cook County judge said during a bond court hearing Tuesday.

He was wanted for a parole violation:

  • The uniformed officers pulled over to talk with Bustamante when they saw him standing behind a car that had it’s trunk open. He ran, but the cops caught up with him less than a block away, and a five-minute battle broke out as the cops tried to arrest him, according to prosecutors.

    During the brawl, Bustamante allegedly bit both officers, kicked one in the groin, tried to disarm one, and spit in both cops’ eyes, mouths, and noses.

After being subdued....: 

  • Prosecutors charged Bustamante with Class X manufacture-delivery of a controlled substance, Class X felony armed violence, unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, two counts of aggravated battery of police, child endangerment, two counts of resisting, possession of ammunition, and other crimes. He is also charged with previously threatening to burn the mother of his child and her car. Bustamante was also wanted by the state for failing to comply with the requirements of his parole and on a DUI warrant.

    After hearing the state’s lengthy presentation against Bustamante, Judge Mary Marubio said she believed there were many indications that he would not comply with the terms of a bail bond.

Yeah, probably not Judge. But guess what? 

  • Marubio said state law prohibited her from holding Bustamante without bail on the new allegations. “If I could, I would,” she said. Instead, she set bail at $500,000 and ordered him to go onto electronic monitoring if he can post a $50,000 deposit bond.

She WASN'T PERMITTED to order him held without bail, even after the litany of charges against him.
 
Once again, CWB exposing the absolute stupidity of the Cook County system, and the silence of the main-stream media is absolutely astounding.

Mass Shootings Are Up

The Tribune actually used the term "mass shooting" for some reason, but left out actual important info - can you spot it?

  • Two mass shootings have left at least nine people injured in attacks in the South Side’s West Pullman and West Englewood neighborhoods on Saturday evening, officials said.

    Most recently, about 5:45 p.m. in West Pullman neighborhood, five people were injured the 12200 block of South May Street, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford.

    Witnesses said two black cars tore down the street and began shooting at people who were standing on a sidewalk, a porch and inside a home at the May Street address, police said.

    [...] The West Englewood attack took place in the 6800 block of South Claremont Avenue about 5 p.m. police said.

    A group was standing at the Claremont address when, according to a witness, a gunman opened fire, hitting four in the group, before running away through an alley near 69th Street.

This during a weekend when another forty-plus Chicagoans ended up with extra holes in their bodies, even with the temps ending up in a pleasant autumn-like range.

This is Ironic....Sort Of

See if you can see the disconnect:

  • Sunday at midnight, TikTok and messaging app WeChat will vanish from U.S. app stores. Users who already have TikTok on their phones will still be able to use it for now. The Trump administration claims the Chinese are maliciously collecting Americans’ personal data through the apps.

    One person who said she will not be sad to see TikTok go is an Albany Park woman. She discovered a video of herself on the app that was recorded without her consent.

    [...] It all began at a BP gas station at Pulaski and Montrose when Vanessa Gonzalez said a van pulled up and gave her an uneasy feeling. Days later, she would find out the man inside was recording her. He said it was because she was texting while pumping gas, which signage does warn against. But she said either way, what he did was wrong. 

Wrong? How so?

  • “Apparently a guy recorded me just pumping gas. It kind of had a lot of “likes” and yeah, I just found it disturbing because that’s an invasion of my privacy.” Gonzalez said it made her feel embarrassed and creeped out. “I don’t know this man or his intentions at all,” she said.

    [...] Gonzalez said she hopes her story encourages women to be more aware of their surroundings and to speak up if they feel uncomfortable. “If they feel something to trust it, to call someone, call the police, and just always be aware of your surroundings,” Gonzalez said. “Because you never know who could be doing what, or what their intentions are.” 

So she wants to call the police....who will drive up in a camera equipped car, wearing a camera, and then probably be surrounded by half-a-dozen morons whipping out their camera phones....for something that is completely legal last time we checked. Legal and encouraged by society it would seem.

Even if he told the cops he was making a "spank video" for his own personal needs at home, it still isn't illegal.

Headed for Disaster

As predicted here and elsewhere:

  • The Chicago Police Department has 847 sworn vacancies that could be reduced to chip away at a $1.25 billion shortfall in the city’s 2021 budget, aldermen were told Thursday.

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot has, so far, resisted the movement to de-fund the police that has been sweeping the nation since the death of George Floyd. Chicago is the nation’s largest city to give the cold shoulder to those demands after police cuts announced in New York City and Los Angeles. But that doesn’t mean the Chicago Police Department’s $1.7 billion budget will be spared from the budget ax.

    During a joint meeting of the City Council’s Budget and Public Safety committees focused exclusively on CPD spending, Budget Director Susie Park told aldermen there are 847 sworn police vacancies and all are under the microscope to chip away at the shortfall.

How many years did we post about the downsizing of the Department? And the rearranging of deck chairs that Rahm did, pretending to put 1,000 officers on the street by disbanding street units? And how many openings were just posted for what can charitably described as an "undesirable" District to be in? Thirty-five, wasn't it?

Does anyone doubt that next year's twelve-hour days and cancelled weekends aren't going to double simply because there aren't nearly enough officers on the street? And so will the injuries that will result from being undermanned?

How about cutting the fat up top first Groot?

Desperate Measures

When the community is reduced to this, they've lost any trust in the political structure:

  • Some community activists in Chicago want children to carry bulletproof backpacks in an effort to stem the growing number of young gun violence victims.

    Violence Interrupters Executive Director Tio Hardiman asked during a press conference Thursday morning outside Chicago Police Headquarters for Gov. JB Pritzker and Mayor Lori Lightfoot to introduce measures to provide body armor to kids.

    Hardiman said nearly 40 children have been shot and killed so far this year.

Groot is looking to set records as a baby-killer, assisted by the useless Crimesha who keeps releasing gun offenders, knife offenders and every manner of killer she can find. And to have a woman-beater like Tio fronting this effort has to be a bit embarrassing.

Thirty-Five Openings?

So the Department posted bid openings across the city and it looked something like this:

  • 003 - 35
  • 016 - 1
  • 017 - 2
  • 020 - 1

That's it. This is eerily reminiscent of the stunt they pulled about ten years ago where the Department wouldn't post a single opening for months on end and then come up with double-digits in a bunch undesirable spots. Any movement was one-for-one trades, so you really had to keep an eye on things to see who was moving where.

Judges Revolt

You thought we had an "independent" judiciary?

  • Cook County Democrats led by Party Chair Toni Preckwinkle may have picked a fight for which they hadn’t really bargained this week in seeking Judge Michael Toomin’s ouster from the bench in a bald political power play.

    Late Wednesday night, the other Cook County judges seeking retention on the November ballot refused to fork over their usual $40,000 payment to the party’s get-out-the-vote effort — partly in protest of the Democrats’ decision to target Toomin for defeat.

    In essence, they refused to kiss the ring. It was a rare election-year display of political independence for the judges, who saw in the attack on Toomin, a respected veteran jurist, a clear threat to their own autonomy.

    Whether this turns out to be a revolt from the Democratic Party itself or just a revolt from Preckwinkle’s leadership of the party remains to be seen.

So every judge forked over $40,000 per election season? [addition - Or is this $40,000 cumulative from their "association"? We're getting conflicting information] That might explain the exorbitant salaries they get for part time work, the massive sway Ed Burke and other Slating Committee chairpersons wielded over the years, and why the Feds shutdown Operation Greylord after only ninety-three indictments - if they kept going, there wouldn't have been a single judge left sitting on the bench.

This is EXACTLY why we vote "No" on every single judge, regardless of how they treat the police - sometimes, you just have to clean house top to bottom.

South Shore Shooting?

Word trickling in that an Officer, leaving training at the South Shore location, had his headrest save him some major damage one or two nights ago.

No one seems to be able to answer if it was a stray round or a targeted attempt on an Officer's life. In light of recent threats and recent assassination attempts, this should be answered immediately.

And a better method of training locations figured out.

How to Fuck the Police

 This is from the brains of Groot's operation?

  • The office designed to help aldermen keep tabs on how the city spends tax dollars detailed a proposal on Thursday that would cut $55 million from the Chicago Police Department’s $1.7 billion budget in 2021 to help fill Chicago’s massive budget shortfall.

    The recommendation is the first from Kenneth Williams, who was named to lead the City Council’s Office of Financial Analysis in May after aldermen expanded the office’s power in an effort to provide a counterpoint to the annual budget proposal from the mayor’s office.

    Williams said he went through the department’s budget to find savings by cutting “perks” and things that are “nice to have, but not need to have” and identified savings equal to about 3% of the 2020 departmental budget. 

    The city could save $30.5 million by cutting tuition reimbursement programs and uniform allowances for police officers and commanders and another $23.5 million by cutting quarterly payments to sergeants and to those assigned to special units, according to the proposal. Another $1 million could be saved by reducing spending on police at O’Hare and Midway airports.

Perks? These were negotiated benefits from the City to employees. In fact, most of these so-called "perks" were offered in lieu of pay raises so that the City didn't have to factor them into pension payments - and does everyone remember how well the City kept up on those pension payments over the intervening decades?

For these benefits to be surrendered, Groot better be prepared to add the total value to salaries - we were always the good guys/gals in these negotiations, sparing the City (and taxpayers) increased pension payments.

And this is just dumb:

  • The City Council’s Office of Financial Analysis also recommended that the city require officers to carry liability insurance as a way to reduce the cost to taxpayers to settle misconduct lawsuits. That change would require a change in state law.

Perhaps if the Corp Counsel actually fought the nuisance cases (like they did under J-Fledgar) instead of settling them with connected firms (that make political contributions to the Machine), then they would (A) make it less attractive to file bullshit cases and (B) have money to fight the cases that need fighting. J-Fledgar saved the City millions fighting suits and made plaintiff attorneys angry enough to threaten Rahm into settlements again.

Anyone know why Groot isn't cutting half of the aldercreatures? New York is three times as big as Chicago and gets by with as many politicians.

How about the CPS? Their budget is $7.7 billion - four-and-one-half times the Police Department. Surely there is room for massive cuts, especially when they aren't even using any of their buildings, supplies or physical plant personnel.

Short...and Getting Shorter

This is what was working the other night in 020 (click for a larger image):

One sergeant, three 99 units, two 10-4 units, five cars listed as DOWN.

Additionally (which we removed fro the section marked "DETAILS," there are three 10-4 units assigned to downtown and four other officers detailed to the Tactical Team to fill four vacancies for a separate detail outside of the District.

In simple terms for our non-police readers:

  • 1 sgt and 7 POs working the District to which they are assigned
  • 1 sgt and 10 POs detailed out of the District from which they're supposed to be working.

So taxpayers aren't even getting HALF of their assigned officers working the District. This is happening Citywide. And it's about to get worse (as always, click for a larger version):

 

Again, for the non-police readers, Groot is about to steal 200 Officers from across the City to backfill a "Community Safety Team" which will be utilized well into December for anticipated riots and/or looting downtown, all at the cost to neighborhoods that are already seeing massive upticks in shootings.

You doubt us? Check out this article about Albany Park experiencing a 100% increase in shootings and killings in about nine months. It's already happening and it's only going to get worse.

  • Davarius Minor handed off the infant to someone else before pulling out a pistol with an extended magazine Tuesday, firing nine shots in self-defense at his attacker at Michigan Avenue and Harrison Street, Cook County prosecutors said.

    No one was shot in the exchange that was witnessed by Chicago police officers patrolling nearby, Assistant State’s Attorney James Murphy said.

    After the shots were fired, Minor and two others got into a vehicle, driven by Daquan Dunn, leading officers on a high-speed chase through the South Loop, Murphy said.

What the article doesn't mention is that the future Father-of-the Year candidate properly strapped his child into a car seat before speeding through downtown at over 80 MPH.

Laughable "Offer"

  • Chicago Police officers have waited more than three years for a new contract and the retroactive pay raise that comes with it.

    The first substantive offer they got from Mayor Lori Lightfoot was hardly worth the wait, according to their fiery union president.

    Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara said he stormed away from Tuesday’s long-awaited negotiating session after the mayor’s team offered his members the same 10% pay raise over four years already awarded to Chicago firefighters in exchange for higher health care contributions — but tacked on 17 pages, including 40 disciplinary reforms.
Groot's mouthpiece - scumbag lawyer Mike Frisch - wants a complete surrender by the FOP to every contractual protection negotiated over the decades, because at this point, the "leadership" of the city (democrats one and all) needs to destroy the Department on the altar of political correctness to preserve their corrupt rule.

Go read it all.

Why is the City Broke?

  • City officials Tuesday defended a decision to sell a former firehouse in Jefferson Park effectively for $10 and turning down an offer of $300,000 from the nearby Copernicus Foundation.

    The Copernicus offer never offered evidence of financing, a clear plan and a timetable for its project, said a city spokesman.

    In July, the city’s Community Development Commission agreed to sell the building at 4839 N. Lipps Ave. to an affiliate of Ambrosia Homes Development. Its proposal calls for adding one floor to the two-story brick building — vacant for about 10 years — and to convert the ground floor into a pub and restaurant for Lake Effect Brewing. The rest of the building would be turned into nine apartments.

    Ambrosia, led by Tim Pomaville, agreed to pay environmental remediation costs at the property, estimated to be worth almost its appraised price of $208,000. Hence, the stated price of the sale was $10, according to a report to the CDC. Copernicus responded when the city advertised for competing bids.
Financing? It was $300,000 in cash, plus a commitment to being the building into environmental compliance, estimated by the competing bid at $208,000.

The other guy (politically connected?) offers $10 and because the compliance cost is equal to the cost of the building itself, a net zero dollars.

Cost to the taxpayers - about half-a-million?

Meanwhile, Groot's budget hole gets bigger and bigger.

Giant Fucking Pussies

  • The current and former chairmen of the City Council’s Committee on Public Safety were accused Wednesday of backing out of a “Support the Police” rally under pressure from Mayor Lori Lightfoot and from constituents who support defunding the Chicago Police Department.

    Ald. Chris Taliaferro (29th), a former Chicago police officer now chairing the committee, and Taliaferro’s predecessor, Ald. Ariel Reboyras (30th), do not plan to attend the “Back the Blue” rally outside the Jefferson Park police district, 5151 N. Milwaukee Ave.

    The rally is co-sponsored by three Northwest Side aldermen: Nick Sposato (38th), Anthony Napolitano (41st) and Jim Gardiner (45th), but Taliaferro said the ‘Back the Blue’ rally was turning into a political show.
A political show? It's ALWAYS a political show Chris. This is Chicago and it's always political.

What do you call it when a cop steals a cell phone on a side job ON VIDEO and is forced to return it by another cop, then the thief goes on to make sergeant, work in IAD and somehow get elected to alderasshole? Oh yeah - Politics.

In any event, Reboyas and Taliaferro are probably the two biggest pussies in the City Council at the moment. Chris also claims the rally dared to point out hat Crimesha is a complete failure at her job and that simply isn't true. He might not have gotten the annual stats from the portion of Austin that he represents, but the body count has been climbing steadily all year.

Gee, Who Knew???

  • Just weeks into September, homicides in Cook County have already passed the total for all of last year, with nearly all the victims people of color, according to the medical examiner’s office.

    The office — which investigates all accidental, suspicious and indigent deaths in the country’s second-most populous county — said Tuesday it has recorded 677 homicides this year, passing 2019′s total of 675.

    Cook County had 487 homicides by this time last year, the office noted.
And surprise surprise:
  • Chicago — which has struggled to contain street violence — makes up most of the county total, with 565 homicides within the city limits through Tuesday morning, according to the office. The totals include homicides committed on expressways within the city, as well as reclassified cases that were initially inconclusive.
And the Medical Examiner makes the Channel 7 iTeam their bitch:
  • The medical examiner’s office noted that minorities make up 95% of all the 2020 homicide deaths, with about 79% African American and 16% Latino.
Proportionally, this is all wrong because - as Channel 7 is always pointing out - the city is almost evenly divided among black, brown and white and therefore, crime stats should be evenly divided among the racial rainbow....like traffic stops.

Of course, Channel 7 is staffed by morons.

Nightmare?

  • Illinois Governor JB Pritzker gave a dire warning about the potential for layoffs and drastic cuts at the state and local level if the federal government doesn’t offer more assistance Tuesday. "This is a nightmare scenario,” Pritzker said Tuesday while announcing $220 million in grants for small businesses.
Wait....Illinois is broke? And he's giving out $220 million?

What the actual fuck?
  • “If we don’t receive support from the federal government for our cities and our counties – you’ve already seen challenges, I think, in our police departments and fire departments across the state, cities and counties,” Pritzker said. “If they don’t receive federal support, they won’t be able to maintain their workforce.”

    Governor Pritzker’s current $42.9 billion spending plan signed into law in June relies heavily on federal assistance, and it authorizes borrowing up to $5 billion from a federal COVID-19 relief fund. Pritzker said if the support doesn’t come through by the end of the month, the state will have to do something.
Fatass should have been doing something over the last year, like cutting spending, eliminating waste, fixing government, instead of destroying the economy at the behest of the national democrats.

Arbitration Coming

There was some sort of an "offer" from the City regarding the Contract yesterday. We don't have the specifics yet, but it's as horrible as you can imagine and pretty much a slap in the face to a Department that has been worked to exhaustion this year, and shit on for three.

Rumor is 10% for four years (meaning it's almost expired) and back-loaded to minimize retro pay. Also, the gutting of disciplinary protections across the board.

The FOP is correctly outraged and disappointed. Expect more info shortly.

Foiled Car Jacking (and More)

  • An off-duty Chicago police officer exchange gunfire with an armed person Tuesday in West Town.

    The officer was stopped in his vehicle at a stop sign about 9:40 p.m. when he saw a male get out of a silver sedan with a handgun in the 700 block of North Noble Street, Chicago police said. The officer announced himself, “at which time an exchange of gunfire occurred,” according to police.

    No injuries were reported, though the officer’s vehicle was damaged, police said. The male with the handgun got back in the sedan and fled.
  • A man is in custody after a Chicago police officer was hit by a car Tuesday in Belmont Cragin on the Northwest Side.

New "Normal"

So this morning, our e-mail lit up with rumors of a full cancellation of days off for Wednesday. As far as we can tell, this turned out to be false, but guess what the trigger was?
  • a Lancaster (PA) Police Officer killing an Hispanic subject who charged him with a knife.
Bear in mind that this had zero to do with #blm mopes, Lancaster PD released the video literally within hours - and there's a knife clear as fucking day - raised to stab, and this subject was charged with stabbing FOUR people just last year.

Better have a riot!
  • The overnight violence came on the heels of the death of Ricardo Munoz, the mentally ill 27-year-old who was seen on bodycam footage charging with a knife in hand at a cop. The officer shot and killed Munoz Sunday afternoon outside his mother’s house in downtown Lancaster.
Heather MacDonald, the brilliant author of The War on Cops, decries this development:
  • If the nation’s police officers walked off the job today, it would be hard to blame them. Sunday’s anti-cop riots in Lancaster, Pa., have made the current de facto rules of engagement clear: Officers may never defend themselves against lethal force if their attacker is a minority. They should simply accept being shot or stabbed as penance for their alleged racism.

    In Lancaster, an officer responded to a domestic violence call at a residence where a man had stabbed four people last year. As the officer approached the house, a female escaped out the front door. A man — the suspect from the previous slashings — then emerged and ran at the officer, brandishing a knife over his head. The officer shot him, as the officer was by all appearances legally authorized to do, to stop the threat of deadly force. Twenty-seven-year-old Ricardo Munoz died from the officer’s gunfire.
    Bodycam shows police shoot knife-wielding man in Lancaster, PA

    The response from the “community,” after this summer of lethal cop hatred, was predictable. Rioters pelted Lancaster cops with bricks, glass bottles, and sharp projectiles ripped from road barricades. They smashed the windows of police cruisers, the downtown police precinct, the post office, cafés and stores. They torched a dumpster dragged from another part of the city. They pulled street signs and bike racks out of sidewalks to use against the police.

    Such anarchy, with its photogenic arson, is just the latest chapter in the violence that is now routinely directed at officers during ordinary law enforcement activities, as well as during riots.
This is going to be the rule from here on out - cops shoot someone, no matter how justifiably, and the terrorists are going to burn something somewhere that night. Because you can't expect someone who has been lied to by years of indoctrination that they're "oppressed" (in the freest civilization ever created) to actually follow the rules of a civilized society.

Watch your backs.

Not Only Shooting

  • Chicago police have issued a community alert about a series of motor vehicle thefts, carjackings and robberies targeting women in less than a twelve-hour span this past Sunday.

    In each incident, the offenders, who were armed with handguns, either took vehicles that were left running or stole ones that were occupied, the Chicago Police Department said.

    Using the stolen vehicles, the offenders then robbed women, either displaying guns in the incident or implying they had weapons before taking property from the victims.
    Local

    The nine incidents occurred in the Lake View, West Town and Wrigleville neighborhoods as well as on the Lower West Side between 3 a.m. and 2:06 p.m. Sunday.
But it's okay. The District in question probably sent half-a-dozen cars to the west and south sides the other night to make sure killings didn't rise above 15...and it was a success. Now the Commander will have to answer for why his robberies are through the roof.

Is the End Near?

Pretty much every social media platform bans anything supporting the police while promoting "protestors," terrorist organizations and every anti-police whack-job out there. Organized groups are dox-ing cops, threatening our families and anyone who "backs the Blue"....and this is permitted.

We have received a number of warnings from Blogger and had a couple of posts taken down from earlier this summer due to a concerted effort by the CTU for merely pointing out what their members have posted on their social media accounts.

We didn't manipulate anything. We didn't lie about what they said. We merely re-posted what they had already broadcast to the world. And our posts were removed.

We're expecting more of the same after this weekend, so we're warning the readers that it is very possible as the election nears and the leftist psychoses bubble to the surface more often, you will wake up one day and find the blog severely curtailed.....or missing entirely.

No doubt, some will find that a relief. Others not so much. It is part-and-parcel of the stranglehold major media companies have on the flow of information.

Name This Tune

The CWB blog heard someone had fired a gun near Wrigley Field. A Patrol unit called in loud reports and a whole bunch of people called 911. CWB did some digging. See if you can hear anything in this video clip - be sure you turn the volume up so you don't miss anything:



Media Affairs said the incident “turned out to be not bonafide.”

We'll pause here so you can go back and play the video again....if you didn't hear it the first time.

Here's a secret Groot and Brownie don't want you to know:
  • Unless there's a ShotSpotter hit, a casualty, some sort of damage or shell casings found, the "Shots Fired" didn't happen and isn't recorded anywhere except as a 19-Paul.
The reasons for this are many:
  • no victim = no crime;
  • keeping cars off the street inventorying shell casings is cost prohibitive;
  • "testing" evidence for non-existent prosecutions doesn't make budgetary sense;
On any given day, there are between 200 and 500 "Shots Fired calls citywide. Many are bullshit. Many fall into the above categories. On the weekends, there are thousands.

And on average, there are two dead and a dozen wounded every single day, which should give you a small idea of how bad it truly is out there.

And after being embarrassed by an alternative media source, Media Affairs released the following after the close of business:
  • Update 5:11 p.m. — Within the past hour, another CPD spokesperson said in an email that police returned to the area “after video…evidence surfaced.” Officers located shell casings near Addison and Wilton, the spokesperson said.
Good thing there wasn't a dead body there for sixteen hours.

Here's an Idea for the FOP

Protestors are using real time "dox-ing" to harass and terrorize Officer families. And here's more proof:
  • Rochester Police Department (RPD) officers have been given permission to cover up their names displayed on their tags to avoid harassment from left-wing protesters, who are screaming out their home addresses, kids’ names and schools, and making taunting calls to their parents in front of them. They are also spreading personal information about the cops via social media.

    “The past couple of months officers names have been researched by protesters to put personal information out to the public, putting the safety of their families in jeopardy,” said a statement from RPD Chief La’Ron Singletary, who announced his resignation earlier this week.

    “Officers have been allowed to remove their name tags in an effort to prevent their personal information from being spread on social media,” Singletary added.
And for all those who claim that the "rioters" wouldn't do such things, we refer you to yesterday's post about Mt Greenwood. they didn't pick that neighborhood at random and they didn't target houses at random either.

Groot is infamous for saying her wife and daughter didn't sign up to be protested at the home at 3434 W. Wrightwood.

No Good Deed

Prickwrinkle's County Board has refused to endorse two judges for retention. One for being accused of being a sexual pervert and the other for putting Crimesha on the hot seat:
  • The Cook County Democratic Party will not endorse the retention bid of the judge who appointed a special prosecutor to investigate how State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office handled the Jussie Smollett case. Cook County Judge Michael Toomin officially lost the backing of the party on Monday after a committee voted overwhelmingly for a motion not to endorse him, citing its investigation of his record on overseeing the juvenile justice division but not the Smollett controversy.

    [...]

    Toomin, who presided over the high-profile case of the Chicago actor accused of staging a hate crime against himself last year, said he believes the fallout stems from his decision to appoint Dan Webb to look into why the state’s attorney’s office dropped all 16 felony charges against Smollett. In a news release Monday, Toomin did not mention the investigation into the juvenile division but characterized the vote on him as “retribution” for appointing the special prosecutor.
Since we always vote "NO" on judicial retention across the board, this means little to us. And Toomin was also part of Shady Ed Burke's "investment club" we wrote about here last week. And there's little doubt he's part of the old Machine crew, which is slowly being forced out by the Prickwrinkle organization, whoever is running the Hispanic coalition, numerous FBI investigations and Father Time.

Fun times.

House Arrest

  • A West Side man on house arrest for a gun case is accused of opening fire on members of a family he’d just met at a weekend birthday party in South Austin, killing two and wounding three before someone shot him, prosecutors said Monday.

    Cook County prosecutors described in court how a late-night gathering with cocktails and music turned bloody early Saturday when Timmy Jordan, 39, fired seven to 10 shots into a group of revelers, striking five relatives outside a two-story apartment building in the 100 block of North Central Avenue.

    One of those wounded, a concealed carry license holder, pulled his own gun and wounded Jordan before dying, authorities said.
He wasn't just on "house arrest" for a gun charge:
  • In addition to his pending gun case, Jordan has two prior gun convictions. Prosecutors noted that felons are barred from possessing firearms...
But don't worry - Brownie is really pissed this time:
  • At a Monday morning news conference, Chicago police Superintendent David Brown said Jordan should have been in the jail instead of on the street. “What are we doing? I mean, it’s beyond frustrating. It makes your blood boil if you’re one of those victims,” Brown said. “This is what we are doing. We’re making the arrest of people who possess illegal guns, which should make us safer, and yet every weekend we can bring forth an example of a person out of jail that should be in jail.”
Once again, the campaign commercials for O'Brien write themselves against Crimesha.

It's Going to Get Worse

  • The two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies shot Saturday night are out of surgery and are expected to survive.

    The Los Angeles Times reports that both deputies are “recovering,” following surgery after the ambush attack.

    L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva described the wounded deputies as a “31-year-old mother of a 6-year-old boy and… a 24-year-old man.” He said the fact that both are expected to survive is a “double miracle.”
This was a straight up assassination attempt and it's a miracle both deputies survived.

But it is what happened after they went to the hospital is truly a blight on humanity:


Guess who these assholes identified themselves as?

Give yourself a gold star if you said "#blm activists."

And give yourself bonus points if you remember which athletes are praising and aligning themselves with these terrorists.

Exchange of Gunfire

  • Chicago police officers fired shots after police said a 49-year-old man shot at officers through a door Saturday morning on the Far South Side after officers arrived there for a call of shots fired, according to the Chicago Police Department.

    No one was hit in the exchange of gunfire that happened around 8:45 a.m. in the 11500 block of South Wentworth Avenue in the West Pullman neighborhood, according to police.

    “Police returned fire without striking the subject or anyone in the area. SWAT team members were called in to resolve the situation,” the department said in a statement.

    The man was taken into custody, police said.
Careful out there.

Shut Up Joe

  • The city’s internal watchdog has found the agency that investigates misconduct by Chicago police officers has improperly — and inconsistently — ended some of its inquiries without coming to a conclusion.

    The Office of the Inspector General issued its advisory findings Thursday, saying that the Civilian Office of Police Accountability’s practice of “administratively terminating” misconduct complaints “is ill-defined and frequently misapplied.”

    The OIG said the misuse of administrative terminations “represents a risk that an allegation of police misconduct is improperly disposed of without ensuring either accountability or vindication for a Chicago Police Department member.”
And just how does Ferguson think the investigations are terminated "improperly"?
  • Some COPA investigations, however, can be closed without an investigative finding, such as when a complainant does not give a sworn statement or when COPA opts to end an investigation administratively.
Oh, you mean when they follow State Law and close an investigation when a Sworn Affidavit isn't obtained?

Anyone here ever been to Court? (that's sarcastic) You remember what happens before you testify?
  • You're sworn in....under oath....and if you perjure yourself, you risk fines, firing and jail
But Fergie thinks that baseless accusations should be treated as if received from a Burning Bush, chiseled in stone and delivered to COPA. This is exactly why every cop and agency statewide should be fighting efforts to gut the Sworn Affidavit law.
