Schools Warns Parents, Students

  • A Chicago school warned parents and students Tuesday of a potential increase in gang violence on the city’s South Side following the deaths of two young people, including 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee.

    Augustus Toltan Academy, located roughly 4 miles from where Tyshawn was gunned down in a targeted shooting earlier this month, sent an alert to parents warning of “an increase of gang activity in response to the recently reported gang deaths of the two young people.”

    The school’s principal said in the alert the activity was expected to take place on or near 79th Street between Damen and Cottage and near 76th Street between Seeley and Ashland avenues.

    “I just wanted to make sure parents are aware, families are aware, staff is aware of what’s happening in this city,” said Principal Pamela Edwards-Sherley.
This isn't the only school warning parents either. It's only prudent.

Great, but can the parents or students read and comprehend the note?

Reminds me of my high school days. Principal Charles LaForce of Calumet High School told the (few remaining) white students to go home and stay home until the threat of violence was over. The school would call when it was safe to return. The year was 1968; the violence was the result of Martin Luther King's assassination.
Now the black students are told the same thing. Equality achieved, brothers and sisters !!! Only took 47 years.

They never sent me home with a warning of gang violence at my public school. Isnt everyday a gang threat is those shit neighborhoods? Money keeps getting dumped into thse "communities" and they continue to rip it apart. Some how, the elected Aldermen, Reps and Senators need to be held accountable for their wards and legislative districts. We only hear from Phlaker and those felonious "anti-violence" groups.

Speaking of which, where can we find the results from the $1m investment the city gave to that Ceasefie group? Is Tio using the last few thousand for his personal campaign fund?

With this surge in gang/gun violence, you would think that McMove Already would be doubling up on the Comstat meetings. Well it seems as though he has learned that his strategy is all a bunch of BS, and decided to cancel the meetings indefinitely. Certain bosses have been promoted based on their "outstanding" showing at Comstat and are tucked away nicely in their spots out of patrol. Mc enough is enough take your wife's advice and get the fuck out of Chicago. We thank you for your efforts, but the shit didn't work. We know your newly promoted Deputy Chief Caluris would argue that the shootings would have been a lot worse without you, but that too is a bunch of shit. Please, just order us more yellow and red tape before you leave. That's all we need at this point sir.

Communist run schools are warning of violence stemming from policies they have endorsed? I don't understand. Is this an admission of a failure of the brain dead liberal plan? Could there, perhaps, be some other solution to out of control youths running amuck in the city? Nah.

The "fetalities" are starting to pile up. They will increase as the community expresses its' outrage over getting just what they asked for. Add the CR# information release to the mix and guess what? Oh, well.......

and I have had to spend an extra $9.35 on used paperbacks this period alone. Talk about unintended consequences!

Well if they all had a moral compass taught to them there would be no need for a warning.

I'm not a cop, but read the Second City Cop because of the commonsense expressed by the blog. I have three blood relatives who are law enforcement officers in different police departments then Chicago. First, the black community on the south side is being alerted by the board of education of possible violence because of gangs in their area; this is crazy, send in the police and clean it up. But after making that statement, I forgot, the black community would rather handcuff the police and let the gangs do whatever they want. Speaking of commonsense, must be a lack of it on the politicians and black leaders to let their people in the community be dictated to by some punk ass gangs. My question to the so called black leaders, how are the contact cards working for your community in the mist of all the shootings?

"This isn't the only school warning parents either. It's only prudent."

Another heads-up for "parents" --

Every single gang member -- every grinning, mindless shooter-off of stolen guns, every wall-smearer and bottle-smasher and corner-hanger and phone snatcher and screaming, cursing flash-mob subway idiot -- came up with at least one biological "parent" in the immediate vicinity.


More than half of the city has become unusable. Look at the God-damned map here.

Looks like Aleppo, Syria. Everything wrecked or boarded up, bullet holes all over, roaming packs of starving dogs, smoke rising here and there...

Who could be causing all this?

Look in the mirror?

The so called smart set in Chicago...

You know...
All the insiders and answer-havers who laughed up
their sleeves at everybody who isn't them.

The Chicago "Useful Crisis" power plant is having a

The useful idiot progressives and elected officialdom are undone and gastiflabbered
as they blink stupidly at the smoldering hole in the ground where the core USED to be.

What to do when the "Catered-To-Constituents" they've used as a weapon against
everybody else, reach critical mass and spin beyond the control of their masters
at City Hall?

Under normal circumstances, the default reaction is to play up something
pertaining to The Police in order to generate enough counter-spin for a tidy
deflection as the media plays along to render an assist.

This one trick progressive pony.
We can only hope it steps in a hole,
spiral fractures every bone in at least
two legs and is euthanized.

And even with that.
In spite of all the bloodshed.
How is it that The Police are still viewed as
being the problem here?

Truth is such an inconvenient thing
to Chicago's so called smart set.

The school is named for Father Augustus Tolltan, born a slave, escaped to Illinois. He was educated in Rome and ordained the first Black priest in the U.S.

Do Not Vote for any Politicians that say All Lives Do Not Matter , Only Black Lives Matter . Will Family of 6 year old killed by police officers be invited to white house ? Body cameras worn by police forced local prosecutors to charge officers with murder . Look at the fleeing felon , that attacked an officer , attempted to disarm a police officer , the criminal was made a hero and family invited to white house and hillarys fund raiser dinner for her to gain votes .

Back in the good old days, after two-gun, we had a unit by various names. Task Force, Special Operations Group, Mobile something force, etc. It was simply a group of a couple of hundred police officers who would be assigned to troubled areas, flooding them with blue lights. First night? Hell on wheels, locking all kind of miscreants. Second night, citizens meekly coming out on to the streets. Third night? You could fire a cannon down Madison Street, and not hit a soul.

Keep up this touchy feely stuff as long as you want. Watch what happens.

CPS teacher here. Just spent the end-of-quarter staff day today listening to a bunch of horseshit about how to address the instructional challenges facing our students. Even asked to read and reflect on quotes from Eric Jensen, educational profiteer, who claims that teachers are the most important factor in childrens' success. Jensen asks teachers to consider, "How does the brain influence your teaching?" Hmmm.

Here's the elephant in the room that everybody has to pretend we don't see: parents and communities are at least 90% responsible for the people they produce. Schools/police/social interventions can accomplish very little.

But don't listen to me. I'm just a moron CPS teacher.

At least your self aware.

Just kidding. All of the CPS teachers I know are sending their kids to Catholic high school. It's not the classroom it's the teaching of moral character.
