Facebook Again

  • A relative of a man who died after being shot along with five others Friday afternoon in the Austin neighborhood said social media led to his cousin's death.

    "Facebook killed him, that's what did it," a man who said he was a cousin of the victim said as he looked over the shooting scene from behind yellow police tape. "They boxing over Facebook. It's so stupid."

    The shooting happened shortly after 1:30 p.m. in the 5600 block of West Corcoran Place, just south of the CTA Green Line Central Avenue stop, according to police. Police estimated the person killed, who was taken Loyola University medical center and was pronounced dead, was age 17 to 19, but the relative said he was 23. Four other men and a teenage boy were wounded and all were in good condition at West Suburban Medical Center.
So the west side racking up numbers this spring in multiples. Six the other day, six today, doubles are almost as commonplace as rats. Some comments are saying this is all related to the United Center last week. If true, it must have been a heck of a grudge to rack up a body count this impressive.

Summer must be here.

I was hoping, obviously unreasonably, that the March slowdown was the new normal. Sorry I was wrong. Too bad, Chicago was a nice city. Maybe it will be again?

Don't worry about the shootings in 025. The bikes are back for the summer...yaaaay!

Not really sure why a district that is so short handed is going to have bike units up? Is it because :

A) The city handles it's money like a retarded kid high off Pixie Stix, and they don't have the vehicles available because of wasteful spending.

B) Some mentally deficient Brass and dumb Alder-Scum believe in the community policing theory that bike cops somehow miraculously improve relationships with citizens while looking like dorks pedaling about the neighborhood.

C) Now that foot chase pursuits are going to have policy, the city believes it found a loop hole for proactive young cops, that drink the Kool-Aid, to still bring in the numbers.

D) All of the above because this department is so pathetically incompetent, it wouldn't get a bid of 10 cents if it were a product being auctioned on ebay.

I would really like some meritorious moron to answer this. It's bad enough the district is low on manpower to the point that they struggle to keep rapids up, but to then have bike units up is mind boggling. I don't want to hear any bullshit about the bikes being a silent, stealthy tool to catch 'bad guys,' either. In this day and age, it is through sheer blind luck that some bike copper hasn't gotten blasted after making the wrong turn on some shitty street corner.

Troll: This event should have been scored as a triple double. Facebook is loaded with cash because of its appeal to the socially dysfunctional among us. Jesse needs to announce a meeting with Facebook executives so he can score a financial pledge from them to fund programs that will help the socially dysfunctional minority community prevent further tragedies such as that which occurred in Austin yesterday afternoon.

Then Channel 7 can dispatch a prized reporter like Leah Hope who can then breathlessly report on the effort and success Jesse had in this endeavor on the evening news with a smattering of people sitting in the background of his "church".
I miss those days when 43rd and Drexel was the center of the press for stories on extortion by JJ of the business community.

After 50 years of abusive social programs by so called educated liberals, will the dignity of civility ever return to our minority communities? Or will we all just be boxin over some shit man as the cuz lamented?

Before all these fancy doo-dad gang-bangers had to actually see and identify rival ass-hats.

The bangers then had to find a bike or steal a car and drive around looking for someone they really did not know so the advent of the hoody became popular in the late 70's.

Now every TUPAC and 2 chainz goes online live showing the street and clothes they are wearing talking smack. Females who live with cell phone in their hand post the video to the gangs groups of friend.

AND BOOM minutes later you just found the guy that KILT your daddy the day before.

On a side not the department should move away from officers name tags and should just go with star numbers for identification. The bangers troll police forums and having a last name hanging outside of vest is silly and dangerous.

OT but CPD does not need a foot pursuit policy. However, if officers are going to engage in foot pursuits and many do despite the advice of many here, couldn't there be some training on best practices for foot pursuit? Those who have done it probably have some lessons to share, but there is no place to share these lessons. You can google "foot pursuit police" or some variation and find numerous articles about foot pursuits that have resulted in officers being hurt. There are also articles with advice on how to do foot pursuits safely, because ultimately, the number one rule is for officers to go home safely, and not get penalized for trying to get the bad guy. Maybe the bosses can get together, nominate their people who like to chase, put them together and come up with a "best practices" for officers who do chase without getting hurt and sharing lessons on best techniques for catching those who flee?

Interesting bit of History, the narrator stated that in the year 1932 there were 365 murders. This was at the height of prohibition, when the mobs were at full power, and Chicago had more people. And yet 700 murders per year or more is normal nowadays.

Wonder if this shooting involved Facebook?

http://abc7chicago.com/news/1-killed-5-wounded-in-chicago-shootings-since-friday-evening/1849256/

The homicide happened about 6:45 p.m. Friday in Archer Heights on the Southwest Side, where officers responding to a call of shots fired in the 4900-block of South Kostner learned 21-year-old Carlos Rosas had already taken himself to Mount Sinai Hospital, according to Chicago police and the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

Eddie Burke takes over the ward expanded his take over West ruining the 23rd ward which at least had a good city services and he takes over Eddie at all the declines! I live in the 5100 block of S. Mobile Ave. or street lights on my block and one block West which is Mulligan Avenue the street lights have been off for quite a while you call Eddie's office you get pandering bullshit nothing is being done it's terrible he thinks he so powerful that the people you talk to on the phone at his office are very arrogant when we were in the 23rd ward we got services we have a great word superintendent don't even know who's in charge anymore but the service is terrible in the West End. Now looking at the area where this kid was shot and killed no police are there why don't we have VRI why don't we have VRI in this area? Guess Eddie Burke can't get it done anymore all the resources are being placed in a neighborhood that are already destroyed and will never change now that this area is being infested by the illegal invaders and the mayor stands up and support them and Eddie not getting more police resources into these neighborhoods is both disgraceful dishonest and typical democratic leadership.

I agree with the original poster. In no way shape or form does the city need to put up bikes.
Not sure how it makes everyone look bad that someone speaks up about management not using common sense with deploying their man power in foolish ways. You on the other hand make yourself look bad by coming on here and whining like a pussy company man. Bike cops don't pay anyones salary and they sure as shit aren't going to be able to do anyone any good by responding to jobs or backing anybody up.

No no NO ! Let me explain...

The brawl at the United Center can be traced to the grand tradition of boisterous public debate and academic inquiry that has been practiced for generations in this fine city. Long may it live ! For example, one group of earnest young scholars gathered in a public place such as an auditorium or sports arena might inquire loudly of another group: WHAT IS THE ATOMIC WEIGHT OF MANGANESE ? If the response is slow or unsatisfactory, the results are often quite spirited ! And before you know it, this intense and intellectual exchange spills out of the hall and into the streets and throughout the community. No "ivory tower" for them !

So you see, there is quite an honorable beginning to what eventually ends in blood and gunfire under the Green Line tracks on the West Side. Why can't the racist police spokesmen ever give the full background and context to these Harvard vs. Oxford-type disputes ? And for the record, the atomic number for lead is 82.

Station is the 009th District.

The police station shown in the movie is not the previous 009th District station at 35th & Lowe. Although physicaly quite similar, the station shown in the movie was the New City Station at 47th & Paulina.

Why so worried about bikes, it's voluntary. Stay hidden in your car with the windows rolled up whining about everyone else. Mind your own business. Maybe your the officer that can't pass the powertest for the summer bike detail and hates on everyone. Get some years on, than you could get to the airport and ride a segway and still complain how you had to walk from your car to get the segway. Wow 025 bitches about nonsense.

OT but CPD does not need a foot pursuit policy. However, if officers are going to engage in foot pursuits and many do despite the advice of many here, couldn't there be some training on best practices for foot pursuit? Those who have done it probably have some lessons to share, but there is no place to share these lessons. You can google "foot pursuit police" or some variation and find numerous articles about foot pursuits that have resulted in officers being hurt. There are also articles with advice on how to do foot pursuits safely, because ultimately, the number one rule is for officers to go home safely, and not get penalized for trying to get the bad guy. Maybe the bosses can get together, nominate their people who like to chase, put them together and come up with a "best practices" for officers who do chase without getting hurt and sharing lessons on best techniques for catching those who flee?


EXCELLENT IDEA which will never happen because the Dept is so fucked up

They beat each other over the hard with glass beverage bottles. Then they demanded the plastic bottles now used. Then stabbing each other was popular until someone pointed out todumb and Dumber than a gun will reach your target at a greater distance and they will stand less of a chance if getting beat like a drum.

I do know we, as a country, pick and choose where to intervene while atrocities occur constantly across the globe. Genocide across many regions of Africa is almost the norm, and the body count in our own inner cities is appalling. But so far, I haven't read about a cruise missile being launched into Chicago.

Looks like the city/department will have to budget for more detectives.

There are no more consent decrees, the city doesn't have to hire or promote any more than they want. They can cherry pick what they want to use from the consent decree that sticks it in the Cop's ear!
The Chicago way or for the children, etc...

How is this all happening with all these district intelligence centers, social media monitoring and shot spotters all over the place? Maybe because non of that bullshit can predict human behavior?

No one would care if the murder rate doubled, tripled or quadrupled, its usually the same people all the time. The democrats and media blame the police, and at the same time tie their hands behind their backs. Promises are made to the people killing and being killed just so they'll vote for the same democrats, over and over again. Then promises are broken, and its always someone else's fault, and the raping, robbing and murdering continues. No one cares anymore. You vote stupid, you get stupid.

So Burke moves the Ward boundaries west to get more "White Vote" to keep his selfish control and job of being the oversee'r or lord of the land.

Some responsible person should run against him but they would have a tough time overcoming the Irish Mob run by Burke & Madigan with their claws stuck in the pavement or should I say pay-vement.

The Dets. are actually using rental cars these days. Every political hack boss and most of their side pieces have take home cars but the working Dets. don't even cars enough cars to respond to jobs. Car hell! Central doesn't even have enough CHAIRS. NO SHIT, NOT ENOUGH CHAIRS. The good news, of course, is that the filthy, sick, drug addled, local lice infected bums are still allowed to live in the lobby. Why not send them to Confusion Central at 35th & Michigan, to live?
4/08/2017 11:11:00 AM

They don't have enough chairs because they treat them like shit, try to squeeze their lazy fat asses in a chairs made for normal size people, they don't try to keep them clean or clean up the food or coffee they spill in them AND, they treat their cars the exact same way and complain when it's a POS. Damn, because you treat it like a POS.

Is that confirmed? Because it's the exact layout of old 009.

I'm from 025 and I agree with you. Shut your fucking mouth and stop crying. It's bad enough we work in a district built on an Indian burial ground-now we gotta listen to you whine? Ain't no pity in donkey city, kid! I bet you never even worked for ol' Joe Curtain!
4/08/2017 09:33:00 PM

Okay, 'old-timer,' and I bet you were probably one of the guys who shit his pants when ol' Joe would yell at you for missing hubcaps on the squad car. Unless you currently work in 025 on patrol, which I sincerely doubt, keep your opinion to yourself goof. I'll take the Curtin era of tyranny, over this current administration where we now have no power as police. Stay off the blog and stick to watching your Matlock reruns dipshit. In your world, seniority means everything, regardless if you have no common sense.

You assume a lot, don't you little fella? Judging by the idiotic simplicity of your post, I'll just assume you are a millenial copper that thinks this job is legit. You were picked on in high school so now you feel like a tough guy with a gun. You either work as a bike cop stroke, or aspire to be one. I will go even further and assume that you haven't gotten laid in a year or possibly never. It's really simple granola boy: If you don't like the comments about 025, then don't read them. This probably isn't the first time, nor will it be the last, that simple logic that a two year old can understand was explained to you. If you don't work in 011 or 015, you should strongly think about bidding to one of them. They are currently looking for sheep willing to get in stupid foot and car chases. You might even get really lucky and get in a bike chase if you play your cards right.

Way, way back, I worked in the old 009 at 35th & Lowe with police officers who previously worked at the New City Station during the filming of NOrthside 777.

If you guys want to see another old-school Chicago cop movie, check out 'The City That Never Sleeps,' from 1953 starring Gig Young.
