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.

Shotspotter is just a tool for us to use. It's not 100%. In fact I think shotspotter themselves says they are approx 70% accurate. I beg to differ with the 70% putting them closer to 50% spot on. I can't tell you how many times coppers on-view loud reports or shots actually being fired and shot spotter doesn't pick it up. I can't tell you how many times shot spotter picks up loud reports and it turns out to be a bona-fide, confirmed fireworks or vehicle back fire. Shotspotter often fails to pick up shots fired from inside a vehicle or shots being fired inside a home. The city killing crime is nothing new and with our new supe and new mayor, I'm surprised their isn't more killing crime stats.

They’re loud reports unless on viewed. Same for the shot spotter alerts. I don’t understand this “shots fired” bullshit broadcast all over the zones. Are the dispatchers as stupid as the millennial coppers?? There is no consistency anywhere in this department!

When we used to leave the wire in Iraq back in 2007 we'd stop our vehicles at the gate and do a test fire. Some banger was just checking out his gat to make sure it'll fire ok before going off to smoke some rival somewhere. Someone trained him well.

“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.”

When I came on the job you had to do a case report even on unfounded incidents. Then the reporting procedures changed which benefited the city in a reduction of crime by just giving a code and flying by. Before leaving and working a citywide unit, one could see that tons of shots fired calls were coded. Sometimes we would get stopped by witnesses who saw a shooter light up a street and who gave details. But the paper cars would 19-P the job. A couple even put out descriptions and then 19-Pauled the job. How the hell can you do that?!!! Yes I realize that if paper was made it’s going nowhere but there are other reasons. You are helping the city to kill crime, police service is based on calls and reports of crime. More crime, more police needed. You have to live in the city!

Just moved out of the city. Bronzeville actually. Went to the Do-Rite Donuts at Addison and Sheffield on my last day. Just left of this video frame. Pork tenderloin sandwich - cannot miss it!

But if I miss Chicago, I'll just queue up this video. By the time I was done living on the South Side, a midnight mag dump didn't even quicken my pulse anymore. No reaction. Just fall back asleep. Let someone else call it in.

Cars go over there and find nothing 19P....sun comes up and the normal people start going about their day and discover shithead DRT (dead right there) wedged between car and the curb..hahahaha !! Anyway, the good sergeant at check off said, "One more thing before you go, we can't 19P the dead guy"... We were cracking up! The sarge was awesome ...he did however tell the guys who had the job to maybe get out and take a good look especially when there's multiple calls. I miss those days...lmao

Sounds like a pneumatic nail gun. Check the area for late night off hours renovations, could be hefty fines.

Those 16 loud reports weren’t coming all the way from 3600 N Wilton, not even echo resonance. Could be that’s where the community member disrespecting started or ended or call made. A daylight loud reports’ would have scattered the pigeons in the opposite direction giving a tip and clue (when I say pigeons....). Give Wrigleyville another year or two to complete the metamorphosis. Voted heavily for PrickWrinkle KmmmFxxxUp and Lyin’Larri or didn’t bother to vote at all for Law and Order. Nice tolerant, welcoming, accepting alderman too.

In the same scheme of things...
CWB has a story about some terrorized feral mutt showing up at a firehouse at 6200 N California in which the shooter struck the window and overhead doe’. CFD let the chickenshit target inside (you try and get in a firehouse). Anyway, CWB reported some ol’girl drove and showed up at the St.Rogers Hopspital with a GSW stemming or involved in the incident. She bypassed around 6 or more hospitals from 6200 California to go to St.Rogers...7-8 miles south. Make sense? Unless just escaping back to more familiar stomping grounds.

There‘s likely someone that was the recipient of the Wrigleyville loud reports that alleviated the necessity of that particular GOCR. It happens. They don’t always tell the troot’ about where they get lit’up.

I did notice a traffic violator or two.
Can we get somebody on that?

Pretty much never, but bonafide shots fired should be documented. If nothing else, it should be on record on OEMC recordings that it was actual shots fired. Casings somehow make it worthy of a report, but no casings is a code? It's all just part of covering up crimes in this fine city. Use your imagination and transport yourself to some sleepy town where you and your family move once you're retired. Now picture yourself out enjoying your sleepy town when suddenly you hear 16 gunshots in an area full of businesses and homes. You call the police because you're justifiably concerned. The police respond and don't find any hits or casings, so they leave without documenting this unusual and dangerous situation. You ok with that in your small town? You think the police should basically pretend nothing happened just because those 16 shots didn't find a home in someone or something? It's become so commonplace and out of control in this shithole city, that we act like it shouldn't be documented. If your imagination isn't working properly to get you to agree, picture these 16 shots happening on your front lawn, but no hits or casings to be found. You want it documented or treated as nothing?
