C'mon Downtown!

  • People thought they heard fireworks as they strolled near Millennium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago on a warm evening Thursday.

    But it was gunfire, a man in his 20s shot in the abdomen at Monroe Street and Michigan Avenue. It was the second shooting at that intersection in nine months.

    "This is like something off of 'Law and Order,'" one woman said as she gawked at the scene before crossing Michigan.

    “Welcome to Chicago,” another passerby said.
If our honor students don't kill you first, the taxes will.

By the way, the picture accompanying this Tribune article shows a bunch of tourists outside the crime scene tape taking pictures. Does anyone think these were all uploaded to social media within seconds? And shared a few thousand times within hours? And that Chicago tourism is going to take a hit?

But than again, tourism might get a boost, as long as the tourists are not the ones getting shot.

Uhhhhhhh......but you are not considering the "tourists" these kind of occurrences attract.....amongst a coast to coast nation whose inhabitants include.....thugs, riff raff, miscreants and the like.....all potentially looking to relocate to to say it......opportunistic localities......

This may be why we've yet to experience the bloody activities of the jihad knuckleheads......too much competition.....not enough peacefulness to turn into pieces.......

If only those attracted to mayhem were to actually spend any of their ill gotten gains in a manner that is taxable.........naw......the crooks in crook county would just skim and scam it like every other dollar extorted via taxations.......

Being a liberal, democrat, sanctuary city, I'm sure no one will stand up and take responsibility for the crime in Chicago, but some elected officials will have no problem blaming George Bush or President Trump.
Although it does seem like there was a fake president between those two that started a war on police.

Just as we never saw the numbers on lost revenue following BLM blocking shoppers on Mag Mile, we will never see the "Real" figures on cancelled rooms. And just like one guy gets the credit when things go right, that same Lil Guy has got to wear this failure to keep the tourist areas clear. It was a real spectacle to see the Lil Guy visit the hospital with the children who had been shot yesterday. Rahm's bodyguards were so close to Rahm as he went up the stairs, that the officer's head would have literally gone up Rahm's ass if Rahm had stopped suddenly! Rahm is allowed to live in a bubble. Uniformed officers guarding Rahm's Crib have been instructed to under No Circumstance, engage Rahm in conversation. If he wants to talk, he will address you. This is how Arrogant and Isolated Rahm has become! Before the Japanese were defeated in WWII, it was forbidden for regular humans, Commoners, to even look up at the Emperor. You were unworthy to match eyes with the Emperor, because he was a Godlike figure; sort of like what Rahm thinks he is! But now Rahm is trapped. Remember when Blago complained that he was trapped in the Governorship? These guys think they are so far ahead of everyone else, they seek higher Office, even when they cannot handle their current job. Baby "G"

Yep, left Chicago six years ago and never went back. Lived downtown and for years saw the escalating violence covered up by Daley and friends. "Wilding", gangs of "urban youth" and flash mobs were around 10 years ago but never made the news, especially in Chicago's "green zone." Escalating violence and steadily increasing taxes was the handwriting on the wall so I voted with my feet and left. Now the same thing is happening in Milwaukee. Tourist travel to Chicago will drop as the quality of life continues to erode amid the overall dangerous environment continues to expand.

The same idiots that brought this heaven on Earth to Chicago will continue to be elected as the overall city intelligence continues to drop as the smart people leave and left behind are the inhabitants voting for more free stuff and unworkable, but money providing, social programs.

You would be surprised at the number of robberies that happen in 001 and 018 in broad daylight. Most of the time the offender is brazen enough to announce he has a gun but does not. Then we are always in a back log and so a car gets dispatched after it is all over. The bad guys know we are short. But the mayor thinks we just are not allocating our manpower efficiently.

When your Major Metropolitan, World Class, International City is compared to places like decrepit pint-sized Balitimore, Cleveland and Detroit it should be an absolute embarrassment to venerated tax paying Chicagoans, but apparently not too much of a big deal for the pandering politician.

The lawless urban predator has brought daily armed violence out of the infested crowded community and into the lakefront beaches, Buckingham Fountain, downtown parks, points of interest and along the Expressway system without any interference, fear or interruption from the police or its so-called "virtual shield" of cameras.
Any low patrolled area is open range for packs of feral armed invaders.

Chicago eventually won't be too much different than the third world immigrant infested Paris, London and Malmö Sweden neighborhoods.
Democrats keep ignoring the armed and vicious violence because it's all part of their controlling the sheep.

Think about what the once quiet 45th Ward and 41st Ward has to look forward to in the next year.
Can't stop what's coming.
The urban predator youth ain't all waiting on you, zoning or not.

Get armed or get put.

The crime wave is reaching all the way to the northwest side look at These 2 scumbags! I wonder if they are part of Rams sanctuary city disobey federal laws harbor fugitives policy? This is what sanctuary cities get you just adds to the dogs the savages the crimes they cause!

Every day is zero improvement now we see Kimmy fox not even wanting to prosecute certain crimes it all how can people expect hard-working Chicago police officers to do their jobs when there is no support no punishment for crimes? The Democrats elected here have totally decimated any inkling lawful behavior! The thin blue line the working Street police officers who are bastardized constantly buy a totally dishonest media buying elected structure they have totally destroyed a once proud city state and county. Have you noticed that the national media has not even been covering all the carnage anymore? Have you noticed President Trump and his administration have left the forgotten man and women of Chicago this state this county to be led by the destructive deep state Democrats here? We need help desperately financially and with protection the city is being destructive deep state Democrats here? We need help desperately financially and with protection we are being rapidly plunged into the abyss and no one is there to save us! Cherish the police officers that are still going out there every day and doing the best they can to serve and protect The citizens who are so vulnerable to the savagery to the animalistic ex and being preyed upon by animals who seek to destroy every place that was enjoyable such as our beaches are transportation system are downtown with no regard for anyone thanks to the last eight years of Barry Obama and now putting up with The elected here in Chicago city state and county destruction is totally immediate!

Take this if you want the best advice get a concealed carry license quickly train on your weapon because your family your future depends on you if something happens to you everything else in your family will fall apart if something happens to your family you will fall apart Leslie God bless the Chicago Police Department!

This is the current problem.

In the here and now, which is the only reality that life allows, this is what impedes the honest citizen.

Those who enforce the law will enforce the law.

Thus, though the scum politicians will, as they have, impede the effective enforcement of the law upon the actual criminals, no such impediments are forthcoming impeding the enforcements of law upon the honest citizens.

Hence, this "best advice" to comply with the law, effectively handicapping all honest citizens who comply.

"...get a concealed carry license...."


The criminals don't and never will.

"God bless the CPD".......


How about the honest citizens being blessed with not having the law enforced upon them, evening the scales a bit......

The past truth of the thin blue line being the difference between civilized living and wanton criminality is now, in the here and now, been rendered substantially false.

Fight or flee.

That's the truth of the here and now.

The CPD is no longer permitted to hold that thin blue line.
Despite this fact, the CPD is still required to enforce the law upon the honest citizen, while being impeded severely in enforcing the law upon the criminals.

Fuck that.

The consensus of law enforcement officers is clearly to continue to enforce the law upon honest citizens, lament, so impotently, the impeding of enforcing the law upon the criminals and advise, by word and example, the honest citizens to choose to " flee" rather than "fight".

Fuck that, too.

Yeah, it's clear, cops are screwed....just not as thoroughly as the honest citizens who choose not to flee..........

You may be on to something there. We have all kinds of Capone related tours, ghost tours, architectural tours. How about a Chiraq tour? You know people, especially foreigners, would pay good money to get on an armored bus and see all the places that make the news so frequently. Problem is that once the public got a glimpse of Englewood it would be bad news for Rahms re-election campaign. People have no idea what goes on there, it will be like visiting a third world country.

There's a lot of robbery and nonsense in 001 and 018. As a Mag Mile resident, there's a lot of shenanigans from the wildlings. I'm always happy to see Bureau of Patrol officers walking, but the 018 folks don't make me feel any safer. Lots of pickpockets and various scam artists. Go a block west or east of Michigan and you'll see the wildlings harass locals and tourists. I figure it's only a matter of time before a "future Harvard grad" murders a tourist on Michigan Avenue.
