Chicago

I was reading the ABC news feed earlier. I read 50 shooting victims throughout the City and 7 shooting deaths. LEO involved in 3 shootings. This was over the 4 th of July weekend.

Anybody on a Cop Talk from the Windy City care to comment on what's going on up there?

Here it is, straight from a Chicago cop who blogs about it.

Blue iron,

Interesting response.

From reading it, I'm guessing Rahm isn't loved by Chicago PD.

Based on what I have seen, Rahm isn't respected by many, other than the party politicians.

There is a Chicago cop on the board, but he pops in randomly. Second City is an interesting take on the interior workings of Chicago.

Even where I'm at, a sense of lawlessness seems to be returning. Stay safe, Chicago coppers.

Chicago PD had been involved in 17 officer-involved shootings in 2014 until this weekend when five occurred. One was against a 16 year old who pointed a semi-auto pistol at officers, got shot, and then pointed it at them again. He died. Another involved a 14 year old who pointed an 8-inch .44 magnum at officers. He also died.

Over 60 shootings in a single weekend with 10 fatalities.

The people in Chicago are getting what they deserve. If they did not pander to "certain" people and cooled their liberal agenda this could stop. They should have Stop and Frisk but that would not please "certain" folks. If a get tough policy was done correctly this problem could very well be solve. The liberal politicos are the cause of this. Mayor Gulliani of NYC brought crime down by being tough of crime. Well now the folks in Chi town have to live with this. Stop and Frisk works if executed properly because the street cops know who the BG's are. People will complain that they were stopped and questioned by the police. Well it is better to be questioned than be posted in the ME's Office. Rahm and his ilk will just blame guns for the sake of blaming something.

Hell, those numbers actually make Detroit look like Mayberry.

ETA: just compared population BTW Detroit and Chicago, even correcting for population, Chicago was way worse than Detroit, at least this past weekend. I'll have to look up the per capita murder rates, I don't recall Chicago showing up in the most dangerous cities lists, maybe this weekend was a fluke...

I know of one of the Chicago officers (friend of a friend) who shot a guy last week... not sure if it's included in the "4th of July weekend" stats. No officers were injured, can't say the same for the BG. That place is a cesspool and sometimes I don't even like saying I live in Illinois just because of Chicago.

Note: the rest of us "downstaters" generally want nothing to do with the city, except to maybe attend the occasional ball game or concert.

Do a google search for chicago clear crime map and play around a bit.

Most of the violence is in the west side Austin and Harrison districts and also around the south side englewood area.

As much as people in GNG think concealed carry will solve all of chicago's problems, it won't. 99% of the violence is ghetto rat vs. ghetto rat. Arguing over dope sales, neighborhood beefs, pookie getting revenge because mookie disrespected his friend, etc. The line between "good guy" and "bad guy" in a lot of the violence isn't always clear.

It's just the way of life in these areas. Welfare moms popping out babies at every opportunity. Everyone with their hand out wanting .gov benefits while supplementing that income with dope sales.

Your 6 year old son plays with his plastic lawnmower and pretends to cut the grass to help you. Their 6 year olds hang out on the stoop and throw gang signs and yell vulgar words when the police drive by.

Cook county court is overloaded with a revolving door with little consequences compared to the rest of the state and country.

The FBI doesn't trust Chicago crime reporting so you don't see it reported on their lists. If you go to http://heyjackass.com/ you can get the most accurate numbers possible.

CPD will play with what constitutes a weekend to artificially lower the numbers. 50 doesn't include Sunday and might cut off Saturday early. Also police involved shootings shouldn't necessarily count in that total

My kiddo received a text message from a friend visiting his family in Chicago over the weekend:

"We're playing a new game here. Is it fireworks or gunfire that we are hearing?"

McCarthy is such a buffoon. He's hanging his hat on the fact that murders are actually down from 2013, despite the fact that shootings are way up. Apparently he hasn't figured out that this fact is a herald to EMS/ER staff, and not his crime-control tactics.

Two city murder victims were previously shot twice

"On May 25, a gunman shot him in the upper right thigh and escaped on foot. Weekly refused to cooperate with officers about that incident, police said."

(Remember, it's the cops fault.)
