You spew hate and racism and blame everyone but yourself. At the same time, you are always a victim. You have no credibility and we are sick of your divisive hatred.

Chicago Police Frustrated Over Continuing Gun Violence

“Here’s an example,” he says. “In the 4500 block of Maypole, we had a murder, a 38-year-old man. I don’t mean to victimize the victim any further, but our frustration is in 1995, he was sentenced to 46 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for a murder.”

    Chicago Police Frustrated Over Continuing Gun Violence
    (CBS) - Eight people were killed and 52 were wounded in shootings over the weekend in Chicago. It's the third time this year shootings have reached 60 in one weekend. Deputy Superintendent John Escalante says much of the violence occurred on the West Side.

    An officer at a crime scene told me last Sat...he typically arrests 250 a year. His arrest number this year is 4. His excuse was that the Mayor passed an ordinance that tied his hands. No more stop and frisk.

    What is the truth? Are union workers engaged in a massive work slowdown to get what they want???? At the cost of citizen lives?

    Did the Mayor tie the hands of Police with the no stop and frisk ordinamce?

    Loretta Lynch in the Justice Department needs to add this to her list of imvestigations.

    What I see on the west skde is massive deployment where police stand around for hours doing nothing. No cops on week end nights because they are Detailed Out to other wards for entertainment crowd control. Bike Patrol and Foot Patroll hawking parking tickets instead of interacting and engaging in building community trust.

    The media and City Hall do not even mention the BLUE FLU AMD BLUE CODE lockstep going on now that the JD cites.

    What is all the grandstanding trying to glorify and make a department full of Heroes ??? (absolutely not true as lost 200mil in lawsuits prove). Good cops won't even out the bad cops. Definately misguided because when the city goes bankruot pensioneers stand to loose 7% of their pensions through bankruotcy court like Detroit.

    Time to face the fact that the Department needs a massive Culture change. The slaughter of citizens will comtinue to grow into every neighborhiod.

    Should we demonize,the political system that fostered fueled, aided abeited this mess?????

    All of Steve's numbers add up. He's absolutely correct. People on the south and west sides of the city are most likely to be victims and offenders. Occasionally when there is a crime in places that normally have none, it looks like a crime wave to those who live there. Steve is also correct about crime statistics. When the CPD sends extra police to high crime areas, their motivations are twofold. The first one obviously is to make the streets safer for the local residents. That affects the second reason. If the CPD lowers the crime rate in those communities, it will affect the citywide crime rate as a whole. Lower crime rates equal more tourism. I recently went on a ride along in the South Bronx with the NYPD, and although they've seen a slight upward tick in murders and overall crime there, all they wanted to talk about are the murders here. That's it. They don't understand why a city of eight million has fewer murders than a city with less than three million.

  • Because most murder victims are men, women should feel safe. Am I right?

    Steve, please pleas post a link to your source for the 85% figure. I would like to read it.

    James, reread slowly, " four people shot, gun fire ALL AROUND THE FEST, a couple of stabbings and of course the poor girl who came for the parade and was run over by PR Fest celebrators driving like lunatics"! Did you read "ALL AROUND THE FEST" that I placed in capitals for you to understand? Enough with AT THE FEST that is surrounded by fencing, armed police officers and subject to search to enter. Everyone here understands that once your in THE PR FEST, you are safe but within four blocks of the fest, you are four hundred percent more likely of getting shot than this last weekend without THE PR FEST!!!! The HP community gets it, do you? Still waiting for your answer to the meeting with other posters?

    Disorderly and loud violations? Send an email to the current Mayor.,,he sends an email to 50. The patrol car who does enforcement sends a review email of everything they did. That they went to the kids parents. They named the kids and their ages and said what legal things they would do for the violations of that moment. The moment problem was overturmimg every trash can and,throwing it all over the block. All problems ended within a couple momths because the landlord was comtacted and advised to remove the problem tenanrs. That took 90 days.

    The 2 items dealing and disorderly can go on at the same households in,Chicago for DECADES with no improvememt.

    The Mayor and Superintendent better fo figure out some solutions or their already low approval ratings will get worse. There will be more calls to remove him as the summer gets bloodier.

    It is insulting that to protect Gay people from the boogie man; while violent neighborhoods will detail out Cops and leace us more vulnerable.

    Someone should analyze the # of Officers DETAILED OUT of the districts with highest murder rate...to the neigjborhoods,they were sent to...who have lower rates was really a smart thing to do.

    Does this make sense at all? It does however show bias...and is why the Justice Department is here investigating the practices of CPD.

    As long as the Hero Concept vs the Human Concept is touted and paraded...there will ve NO real accountability for actions in the largest union of Chicago workers CPD. Howpowerful is that?

    Sas, sorry, sick all at the same time! UGH. What a waste of a once veautiful city turning to rubble.
