About that Gang Party

This comment appeared in yesterday's post about that gang party:
  • I don't blame CPD for being disgruntled, if I were a cop I would probably be in jail for killing every asshole that looked at me wrong, but to label everyone in the neighborhood as anti-cop SJW liberals is fucking retarded and even if they were, it shouldn't stop you from your job of keeping the people that live there safe.
 Really? Well then Citizen, perhaps you'd like to tell us how 50 cops (tops) can pacify/disperse a crowd of 1,000 without water cannons, flash-bangs, gas, etc. We're all ears.

Remember when we had citywide units? A few hundred cops that the Department could call out for situations exactly like this? This event isn't a secret - it's been going on for years. Units like the old Task Force morphed into Gangs morphed into Special Operations, Targeted Response or Mobile Strike Force. Three-hundred cops who could have days off canceled at a moment's notice along with District Gang/Tact teams gave the Department a force of 500 or so to deal something like this - a "reunion" that is just an excuse for the old gang bangers to relive the misery they used to bring to a neighborhood that moved on.

Now CPD has 25 cars show up? For a crowd numbering 1,000? A crowd that's been drinking and smoking all night without any interference from authorities? With (we're betting) a few hundred guns? And nothing has been done for years? In a city that has abandoned the rule of law? What exactly are the police supposed to do?

DNAInfo did the only real reporting on this whole incident (again) and the picture they paint isn't pretty at all. They link it all to a particularly violent stretch of the weekend:
  • While the party itself sparked a few fights caught on camera, six people were shot on the Near West Side Sunday. One of the shootings, injuring a 29-year-old man, occurred at 11:10 p.m. on Adams Street, just a block or two west of the park.

    Minutes later, two more men were shot standing in the 2500 block of West Jackson Boulevard, a half-mile away from the park, police said.
And while cops were handling the double on Jackson, three more got shot right up the block. All connected? Probably, but you'd be hard pressed to see the media link it all together. And it isn't going to get any better.

Several years back there was a house party in 002. No complaints were voiced about that party while it was on, but seven were shot at the close of that party. Can not remember how many died.

The city/county leadership has lost the political will to fight the violent gangs, and keep the peace. Or, for that matter to fight much of anyone, except possibly an immediate political opponent.

SJW liberals have made cops' jobs and lives harder by electing machine politician after machine politician who spread lies and anti police propaganda. Bottom feeders.
And if you can't tell if its a liberal or conservative, in this town you have to guess its a liberal. Sorry, no help for you.
As soon as you help a liberal they could turn on you if they determine in their perfect and infallible minds that your job performance was too harsh or unprofessional when you were only doing what was reasonable and necessary. They're the first to put their hand up and flag you down for help and the first to criticize you if you don't do things their way or if you have to do something they didn't foresee.

Don't forget the triple shooting/homicide with an AK47 right at that same park two days later. Happening just minutes after the alderman and community had a meeting in the park about the problem. Where are all these community members that want to help now? Of the dozens of people who witnessed it, no ones saying a word. Everyone tells us to do our job, yet they haven't slightest clue how our job works.

Bringing up the old units is pointless unless cops are going to put their hands on people, those days are dead! so you can have 500 cops and it wont matter, just like the Trump rally. The next time it gets real bad, maybe with all the body cameras and all the other new technology it will help the d-unit with idenitication and charging post roit because there will be no controlling the situation, and thats all we can hope for. Or maybe if we get a cit trained officer with a bull horn we can peacfully talk down the mobs, something to try next time.

"I don't know how you guys do it." Is a phrase I'm tired of hearing. We can't do it and are make no the best of it. The "I'm he first to admit your job is hard" crowd still likes to tell you what you can and can't do. What a bunch of knuckleheads. To enforce the law you must be above it. Granted certain immunities. Like judges or state's attorneys. Without that, we shouldn't do anything. As SCC points out constantly, we have less rights than any other citizens. The public needs to stop their sympathizing and start putting their aldermen and state reps to the fire. The next alderman is gonna keep your uncle at the Water Department to pander for your vote have no fear.

They have a security department with many people making over 100k to secure parks and beaches.

Hell they even have parking meters at the parks generating revenue.
Yet Lowly special ED has no idea he can blame the park because he doe not like to read lengthy reports.

McCarthy immediately broke up MSF and the TRU unit because he said beat cars do a better job, well that may be the case in other places but not Chicago, and I was assigned to every unit mentioned and while a little contraversial to some we were effective, brought control back after every incident we responded to, there were no thugs walking and robbing on Michigan ave, never mind all the bullshit about racial profiling wtc. Tell it like it is, a leopard doesn't change its spots, don't blame la k of jobs, Chicago has plenty of jobs if you want to work. But why work when the State throws money at people .This city better wake up we need amass rebellion by the ball less liberals and weak ass Miller's who spend all day on the phones walking about clueless but ready to film the Police who stop some poor minority at 0200 hours lurking on a dark street in boys town or in an alley in Bucktown.

They think Kevin Graham is lying to the FOP membership with his pension projections. They believe that the FOP should show us their actuarial that arrives at these conclusions. They also believe that Kevin is basing his assumptions on government doing what it is supposed to do. Their argument is that government has never done what it was supposed to do regarding pensions in the past. Why would they start now and continue doing it until 2055?

If this once-a-year gang party has been going on for years and it was widely publicized on social media, might it have been an option for the city public works dept to take some steps beforehand to inhibit use of the park? Like when an alderman conveniently arranges to have the street torn up in front of a business who wont play ball with him? Im thinking temporary fences installed around the park, 200 snowplows blocking entrances, big ditches dug up to "fix the water mains" or stuff like that? A criss crossing of snow fences all over that place would have maybe helped. Bring in a bunch of huge sprinklers and run them all night. Whatever. All conveniently timed to happen the day of the party.

No need for a huge busting heads police action because the park has been rendered unpartyable!

False premise to start with often brings false results at the end.
Cops are not there to 'keep people safe'. That is not a cops role and it never was.
Cops are there to keep people free, nothing more nothing less. Defend Rights. That's it.

Our police have long been abused. It is certainly time to not only stop abusing them, but to stop abuse of them. That is exactly how abuse BY them is eliminated.

Like I said yesterday, a few packs of firecrackers lit off would disperse a mob blocking a street quite effectively. Try it, ya just might like it.
When it comes to them shooting each other, well, stop trying to stop what is really just exercise of right. It will work itself out if y'all just get out of the way and let the war play out once and for all. It ain't your war. So stop making yourselves targets.

But but but what about the people "trapped" there? Oh wait, nobody is trapped there. Every person there is there because they CHOOSE to be there. SCC just did a article about black flight, right? Exactly.

The risks of real estate.
Whether a SJW or just a urban professional looking to save a few bucks then and hoping to make out big league later with the artful poster and model city within a city landscape. Sold lots of folks a big promise and forgot to mention the criminal element.
THAT neighborhood has NOT seen peace and quiet since 1945.
It has been on the decline since.
Come the 60's it was toast...literally.
Ok, so some developers made a boatload (along with Daley & The AlderThieves) and tried to spruce up the United Center area, but when they cleared out ALBA, Cabrini and other high rises off Lake St., where did they send the affordable housing applicants?
Hmmmm?
Some real estate investment.
The restless, jobless, Section8 freeloaders are a Non-Negotiable investment note to guarantee Democrat votes.

I am so sorry for you guys in blue. Your mayor could make the city safe and beautiful again, but it is not his agenda.

Some day, someone will look into the finances and connections of Rahm Emmanuel, who was instrumental in the downfall of America also via Obama, and come up with the tractor trailer loads of money he is getting and where it is stored. There is simply no other explanation. You CPD are the best. Hey, I grew up in Beverly and raised my kids in Beverly. I don't even live in the STATE anymore. Good luck, and for God's sake, stay safe.
