Nice Week There Ed

Monday into Tuesday, 17 shot:
  • The 27-year-old man was among 17 people shot across the city over 15 hours Monday through Tuesday — 11 of them wounded in just five hours.
  • A man was killed and at least 15 other people were wounded in shootings Tuesday across Chicago.
Wednesday starts fast, ends with another 4 dead, 12 wounded:
  • Four people were killed and at least 12 others were wounded in shootings Wednesday on the South and West sides.
So roughly 50 shot. In 3 days. In May.

Good thing that cold front is coming through for the weekend - looks like another Department Commendation for Tommy Skilling.

Good thing to see crime down around the city. None shot by police let the mayhem continue.

Apparently the community hasn't checked their e-mails to review the new use of farce policy as required weekly by order of the superintendent of police. It is only after they have read and acknowledged reading said order that they can be held responsible for their individual actions which violate the superintendent's newest directive. Stay within the lines. The lines are your friends.

de-escalation time and distance is not the answer. This policy is dangerous. I recommend a policy of "close and control." We are the police, right? or is the taxpayer ok with downing millions of dollars of fire, ambo, police, supervisors and swat over some nitwit that could have been immediately handcuffed and instead was given space and time to find a deadly weapon (hammer) and cause damage and hang on a balcony for over 5 hours....swat was wearing green but was understaffed and if this was a practice run for a real event, response time is an issue.

Its heating up boys and girls. Its showtime. Oil and cleanse your weapons, check your magazines, replace non functioning equipment, keep you lights fully charged, familarize yourself with the best routes to the nearest trauma centers and review lemart training techniques cause its getting real ugly out there.

Be aware of those around you at all times and resist tunnel vision. And back each other up and keep an eye out for our troopers who work alone. The x-ways are just as wicked and dangerous as any street corner in Englewood or Boystown. Nothing is routine and always think ahead with a strategy something should go sideways. Be safe and God Bless our heroes, the police.

Remember! You cannot shoot at cars!

http://nypost.com/2017/05/18/times-square-maniac-told-cops-i-wanted-to-kill-them/

A Navy washout on a suicide mission plowed his car through three blocks of sidewalk pedestrian traffic in Times Square on Thursday — killing a teenage tourist and injuring 22 others.

“You were supposed to shoot me! I wanted to kill them,” Richard Rojas, 26, told police after his bloody rampage, according to sources.

Instead of, "Out door grillin...better check with skilling."

It should be, "Out door chillin...better listen to Skilling....."

I'm a concealed carry person and read this blog with great interest. You police officer have one of the most difficult jobs and I really can see how your department is not backing you guys, it terrible. With all the carjackings, shootings, and other violence not only in the City, but it seem like it's everywhere and not safe anymore. So, I carry and hope I never have to be put in a position to use of deadly force. I also look at HeyJackAss and was totally surprised to see the Homicide Clear-Up rate. It's at 12% and if my math is correct, if I shot someone and just leave the scene, I'd have possibly an 88% chance of not being identified. I'm rethinking what I might do or have to do if involved in a shooting. Reading what the mother said about her honor student that was shot and killed by a Cook County Dep. in the hair solon, is just the beginning of a Wrongful Death Suit in my opinion. I think just leaving after a shooting, for whatever reason is another option to consider. I like the idea of avoiding all the angry family members and a possible vendetta. If I do get ID, so be it, nothing changes other then a story of why I fled the scene. God Bless the Police and please be safe.

Well, the media is catching on, gunfire is now just a naturally occurring event like volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons:

O.T. from New York Daily News:

Hispanic cops to boycott Puerto Rican Day Parade over honors for deadly NYC bomber

Any chance CPD could pull together for five minutes and do something as the nationwide "celebration" for this scumbag continues?

HeyJackass has the Weekly totals at 12 Shot & Killed, and 14 Total Homicides -- and the week isn't even over! If that trend continued those numbers would translate for the year thusly: .....
624 Shot & Killed and 728 TOTAL Homicides.

I know that isn't likely to happen, BUT!!...it sure indicates it will be a another BLOODY, almost record breaking year, pretty much guaranteed to be in the all-time Top Ten.

So way to go Tiny Dancer and Special Ed. Keep up the 'good work'. /s

All the shootings and killings going on in Chicago, seem to be similar to a lemmings over the cliffs thing. The population of lemmings gets to a certain point and over the cliff. Except in Chicago its the dominant minority. Or is it a democrat thing? Get too liberal, got to get killed? Either one sounds like a win win for Chicago.
(Yeah, yeah, I know I shouldn't be that way, but lemmings will be lemmings.)

Speaking of SHOTS: ShotSpotter (Newark, Calif.)
set terms for its IPO today. Company hopes to offer
2.8 M shares between $10 to $12 a piece. Company
announced revenue of $15.5 M for 2016 on net loss of
$6.9 M.
I'm sure the company has notified key players in cities
they serve. Rahm, get your piggy bank ready!

Things are coming around for The Right Man for the Right Time™.
Winter is just a a short 6 months away and a slowdown is predicted.

Special Ed (TRMFTRT™) managed to exceed any 2 yr. average of Gmax (The Wrong Man in The Wrong Time™) 4 yr annual murder totals in just 14months...AND RAHM IS CLINGING ON TO THIS FLUNKY SUPE (besides allowing him [unfortunately] to ride out the Medical to satisfy the pension requirement), so he may have to stick around for the summer slaughter.

Rahm sure picks winners.
Stay Fetal - Stay Safe
Screw Rahm.

This is interesting. I literally just landed in ATL having spent the week in Chicago. Great weather btw. I watched the 5PM news each night and the only shooting I recall being discussed was the Amtrak shooting. Having read the post, it seems not even the media cares what is happening. I did notice a rather large number of officers at Navy Pier on Monday and Tuesday, didn't see many downtown during the week. Stay safe guys.

– gotta love the CC's out there. Please, get serious and think like Paul Kersey.
Sticking around is foolish and creates more paper work on an otherwise "he had it coming-just a matter of time" death investigation.
Not much of a dragnet or manhunt will follow, but silently the effort will be appreciated by many.
Goooooooood day.

Ironic.

Laughable too...

Rahm and the rest of the democratic party
have by word and deed, demonstrated that they
have no compelling need for the middle class
other than being a source of funding for
the non-contributory classes of peoples
an' folkses.

Especially in America's democrat run
urban centers.

It is way past time the middle class
rises to the ongoing sore provocation
by Rahm and his ilk.

That's what has the progressives spooked.

That's why the progressives are hell bent
on destroying The Police and The Military.

They're afraid of Coppers, Soldiers, Marines,
Sailors and Airmen forming the nucleus of the
Great American Push-Back.

Especially Coppers working in democrat controlled
urban centers because they're at ground level
witnessing the evil and venality that is
progressivism, multiculturalism and insatiable
grievance mongering.

They're hoping you middle class types will still
hold on to your innate decency and charity...

There is no greater rage, grief and hatred
than that of the upright man forced to abandon
the vehicle of civility on top of the dead asses
of those who thought it great sport to dare
him to do just that.

"Sore Provocation" will soon loom large
and give these misdirected progressive
children and their allies something to
blink stupidly at.
