  3. These felons, walking around free and those who have enabled them to do so, have an awful lot to answer for. Prayers for this man's wife and child.

    I worked with him in 022. Great guy, great cop, finally somebody who made it that I was actually proud of.

    “Our crime rates are going up and we're living in a lawless city right now. And I do believe our police are trying everything. I do believe our city has the heart to fix this. It's just who's going to step up and do it?” said Alderman Anthony Napolitano.

      So true. And lets not forget WHY. The Democrat Party rules Cook County with an iron fist. They control tens of thousands of jobs, billions of dollars of tax money and it is their party that has handed us these loony left cop hating judges and now Kim Foxx the most radical and inept States Attorney in our history. How does this happen? well you know the guy with the jeans and the carhartt jacket who comes to your door with the clip board and tells you these are the "right people" to vote for. These are the same drones who try to hand you the leaflet outside the precinct voting booths to support "our people". Those leaflets and those signatures are for the very candidates who have brought us to this horrible situation. I usually don't answer the door but I think now I will gladly open my door and politely tell them to stop bringing us these crazy liberals to support.

    I'd be humbled to stand along 111th Street as a sign of respect to this fallen Officer. However it won't be close to Vincennes.

    Great turnout for the Paul Bauer's funeral procession along 111th St. Banners, flags and respectful onlookers. Comforting to know there are lots of caring people in the ward who recognize the value of life, the loss of a father and respect for a fallen Chicago Police officer.

  8. As is usually case lately,my wife told me there was some mope on Facebook really complaining about the fact that he had to go out of his way to get home Saturday because of the funeral procession on 111th st. Perhaps had he not realized that the procession was for the fallen Police Commander I might be able to feel for the guy, but he admitted he knew full well who's funeral this was. Have we sunk so low as a society

    It was really a great, respectful turnout for this fallen officer. People put their plans on hold to go pay respect to him on 111th. Both sides of 111 were packed. Great to see and I applaud all who showed up.
