  1. Upstanding members of the community. Good job, CPD. Now let's hope that they're not released for a long time (doubt it though).

    1. Ditto .. thank God SOMEthing is finally happening to get these drug gangs off the streets! Send 'em to a military-style boot camp far away for hard labor, hard knocks reality enforcement for at least a year. Great job, CPD .. thank you!

  2. Interesting that a few of them are residents of Grasmere Place (4621 N. Sheridan). I guess they are too mentally ill to work but not too mentally ill to sell drugs.

  5. So they basically arrested a bunch of drug addicts and like 2 dealers?

  6. This is the tip of an iceberg, the police need to arrest 300+ people a week and keep them locked up. This character that was sentenced to total 27 years since 1999 how is he out and walking around in 2016? Probably served less than 10% of his sentence. Judges should be ashamed letting these people out early. These are career criminals, they will not be rehabilitated EVER. Send them to Siberia prisons.

  7. They picked up a few small timers, wooo hooo, and the big deals keep going on and on, these arrests are PATHETIC for all the money spent on police in this failing city.

    1. ^^^^ This. Not exactly taking down the gangs. I'd rather have the resources targeting gang leaders not this bunch of low level addicts. And don't tell me flipping this bunch is going to get you up the drug food chain. This lot doesn't look like they can even speak.

  8. No way! The count would be 198 if they arrested the 12-15 year olds slingin' rocks around there.

  9. Don't see this making a big difference.

  10. While I'm glad they arrested these loosers, these pics don't quite fit the press release that these were "violent criminals"

    The way the press release reads, it seems like CPD picked some of the worst of the worst gangbangers:

    the Chicago Police
    Department conducted on Wednesday its latest raid against violent criminal street gangs – this
    time striking at three gangs, and arresting 27 offenders on felony drug charges.
    Each offender arrested in the raid was listed on Chicago Police Department’s Strategic Subject
    List.
    Conducted in the 19th Police District, detectives say these gangs have been associated with
    the recent spike in violence.

  11. Drug dealing must be tough work. They all look 20 years older than their actual ages!

    1. It's not the dealing that takes the starch out of you, it's the continual use. The 57 y/o chick looks like she's done her share of meth as well.

  12. In the future, don't use the term "dope." It's meaningless. I assumed from the headline that this was about heroin (the most common drug referred to as "dope"), and was wrong. Either say "drugs" as a catch-all term or be specific.

  13. It isnt even the beginning everybody they arrested was extremely small time...and these people prob thought tthey were helping someone get there dope.....not very many gang members in the group either. Just saying...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ok so they picked up several stupid street dealers. What about the distributors? These folks (or people) will be out and selling next week.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Why are the police wasting their time on this BS when they could be going after criminals who hold people up at gunpoint, break into peoples homes, steal cars, etc. If the city/county/state wanted to put the drug dealers out of business, the city/county/state could allow Walgreens to sell the same drugs at a much lower price. The city/county/state could also charge a large tax (like on cigarettes) that could go to hire more police to go after real criminals.

  16. Damn! Looks like enrollment in Harvard and Yale will be down this year with all these people in jail.

  17. Send the Police to Wrigleyville to address the robberies, Uptown drug sales are not a priority when folks can't walk home from the el at night. Start with the Belmont train station. Nickelbags or muggers, which is the bigger public safety issue ? Most of the mutts pictured are not out shooting or robbing anyone.

  18. Ok...a bunch of people peddling extremely small amounts of drugs to maintain their drug habit are now locked up.

    For "Big Sting" this is utterly unimpressive. They could have arrested anytime, just do it on the same day so it seems like more and Cappleman The Feckless Alderman can do a "tough on crime" press release.

    If anyone is appeased...you are too too easy.

  19. How many crack dealers does one neighborhood need? Sheesh!

  20. Yikes! Those are some fugly folks. More proof that selling drugs will not make you more attractive.

  21. Why is the bail so low, for some of these fools?

  22. Still arresting people for pot. Nice work people.

  23. I like how Truman College qualifies for the school loophole. Good example of a stupid law that gets abused in a way it was never intended.

  24. these are not small timers. Del/Mfg near a park or school is a class X felony. I'm willing to bet they all have a criminal history and all will be indited by a grand jury. Most will be getting a minimum mandatory sentence. All these people work together selling drugs for criminal enterprise. These people selling and using are why there is violence on the street. That is why drive by shootings occur. Its the gangs fighting over control of a drug spot. If you know of a open air drug market on the street, tell your alderman and demand something to be done about it. Officers don't decide where they are assigned to work. They are sent there by supervisors who are told to do something about the problem by their bosses.

  25. This does not do much. They will either be back on the street in days or weeks or someone else will take their place. They never seem to get the higher uos in the organization.

  26. They will be out in no time. Small fish down on their luck. Waste of time and money.

  27. All of your complaining about how these arrests aren't significant need to see the bigger picture. I'm willing to guess that a few will spill the beans for a lighter sentence. Cops can build a case against their suppliers and work their way up the chain of command within these gangs.
