  1. Buy a watch dog and a gun. No comments until me. Are you kidding?

    1. Sorry for the lack of comments. Some of us are a bit tired of it all and are working hard to pay our mortgage on a condo in our neighborhood that we now want to sell.

  2. Sound gang related? Nevertheless, hate seeing this.


    .. FYI on DNA Chicago

    Lakeview Shooting Sends 17-Year-Old to Hospital

    Excerpt: About 12:55 a.m., the teen was walking on the sidewalk in the 1500 block of West Diversey Parkway when he "heard shots and felt pain," said Officer Michael Sullivan, a police spokesman.

    1. Our understanding is that the victim shot himself while screwing around with his gun.

    2. I wondered whether it might have been self-inflicted. Is it a crime to shoot yourself?

    3. In Uptown there have been a few accounts of them shooting their pecker off with their own gun in the pocket of their saggy jeans. One even had a whole in his foot and claimed he was shot by someone else.

    4. Pretty eye opening .. so "victim shot himself while screwing around with his gun" perhaps BEFORE committing an attack/theft? And the other incidents are sobering, indicating armed thugs are in this hood .. scary. There'll be an uptick in legal carry .. no doubt.

      On another front, we can at least take heart that the CPD is going to solve crime by going super high tech ..so, the neighborhood will surely qualify with the obvious current crime incident mapping, i.e.,

      "create maps of the city that highlight “hotspots” for criminal activity".

  4. Have you seen this yet?

    What a joke.

    1. After reading this DNAinfo article, I wonder if McCarthy thinks the crooks are as stupid as he appears to be. As they learn of the lack of a police presence and richer victims, predators will obviously move to richer and safer ground. Rahm, wake up! Send this creature from New Jersey Wives back home.

    2. He says

      1) "People think that deployment stops crime. It really doesn't."
      2) He's taking officers from safer neighborhoods to less-safe neighborhoods to stop crime.

      Please reconcile.

    3. Yes. McJersey is a joke. A bad one perpetrated on an unsuspecting city.

  5. And criminals today have access to computers, police scanners and smart phones. It I was going to be criminal I would just use those tools and go to areas with less Police and do my trade.

    1. These mopes aren't that smart. That would require planning and strategic thinking, two skills they lack.

      Delete
    2. Sorry, but you are incorrect. The bad guys do gave the police scanner apps on their (stolen) smartphones. That's why we sometimes are dispatched off the radio. Don't want them to know we're coming.

    3. "That's why we sometimes are dispatched off the radio. Don't want them to know we're coming."

      You are amazing! Do tell how you are able to know which "bad guys" have the scanner app so you can be secretly "dispatched off the radio."

      Your full of shit.

      The scanner aps also are delayed and the 19th district is not even available on scanner aps.

      Secret dispatch. Sonovabitch.

    4. The only thing I'm full of is facts. I'm CPD. Are you? Citizens sometimes know that the $hithead they are calling about has a scanner/scanner ap and if they tell the operator that, dispatch will radio us and indicate they will be giving us a job via other means, which is not to say personal cellphones.

      Delete
  6. CPD has Blackberry's as well as radios.

    1. Emergency jobs are not given on cell phones. You have it wrong.

  7. That's funny officers I know have Blackberries. And I often see cops talking on them.

    1. The keyboards go out on a whim. Glad they only talk on them and don't have to dial.
