MAYOR 5%: Rahm's Security Detail Summons Officers To Disperse "Party" That's A Block Away

Talk about exceptional police service! Our mayor, whose house is guarded 24-hours-a day, 7-days-a-week, by multiple 19th district police units, must be one satisfied citizen.

At 9:38PM on Saturday, additional cops were called to the mayor's neighborhood because a party was letting out on the next block and Rahm's security detail wanted officers to “disperse the crowd.”

Three 19th district units responded. Three. The party was so enormous, so overwhelmingly disruptive, that not a single one of the units could find any sign of a party or a crowd.

Please don’t expect similar results when you call in a party at 9:38PM on a Saturday night. Heck, even the poor woman who was attacked and robbed two blocks from the mayor's house Saturday morning received a less robust response.

At any given time, at least five percent of the 19th district’s police officers are committed to sitting outside of the mayor’s home at 4228 N. Hermitage—an assignment euphemistically referred to as the "Berteau Detail."

Last September, the "Berteau Detail" called for back-up after they heard a "suspicious man" coughing near a garage on Rahm's block. Officers converged, only to discover that the man was simply setting up for a yard sale.

  1. Even if 19 were in a RAP status (and for all I know, they could have been), I bet they would have found the cops to disperse the crowd

    1. Fortunately, the district was not in a RAP. But, you're right. This do-nothing party would have been given top priority.

  2. Who called for the extra police and why if there was no party letting out, no crowd?
    Sounds like a waste of the officers time.
    And on the next block???? Who cares it wasn't even on his block. And No officers even saw anything.
    Wow

    1. One of the police units parked outside of the mayor's house radioed for more cars. The additional units could not find any sign of a party when they arrived, probably because the people who were simply leaving a party at 9:30PM—brace yourself—LEFT!

  7. They should chain some alligators down around his house to safeguard His Majesty, and reassign his Palace Guard cops elsewhere.

  8. Chicago's noise ordinance makes it illegal for any individual on private property to cause any sound to be heard beyond one hundred feet from the source - does not apply to street fairs, etc. - after 8pm. We had long time problems with the next door building and called the police. They came but refused to even tell the party to tone down or at least close their windows. Amplified music could be heard almost a block away. On one occasion, we called 911 numerous times starting at 11pm. No one showed up until 1am. People in our building had to arise early in order to go to work the next day, so I told the two female officers I wanted to sign a complaint. They refused to write a complaint saying I was mistaken about the 8pm cut-off. They said: "Well, they are having a party! You should talk to the alderman." They also didn't bother to try to talk to the party people. Then they walked away. All this occurred several years ago before the loss of police manpower. The alderman, no doubt, doesn't want to inconvenience people on his VIP list.
