Officer shot, stable condition

A Chicago police officer was shot on the West Side early Wednesday, and a suspect is in custody, according to Chicago police.
An Ogden District officer was shot on the West Side and taken to Mt. Sinai

He was high-ranking as opposed to just a regular state rep

Former high-ranking state rep handcuffed, arrested in warrant snafu: ‘I said, “You have got to be kidding.”’ as he prepares his lawsuit, next time he will have his front license plate. 

A lieutenant recognized former Deputy House Majority Leader Arthur Turner Sr. and told him the warrant was for a man with the same name — but who had tattoos on both arms and is 36 years younger and several inches taller than Turner. “‘This warrant doesn’t fit you at all.’” Turner recalled him saying.

Two Chicago Police officers detained a former high-ranking state representative less than two blocks from his West Side home over the weekend after they mistakenly believed a warrant had been issued for his arrest.

“When I got out of the car, she told me to put my hands behind my back, and they put cuffs on,” said

Column: Police families, how do they bear it?

We don’t know the reasons why newly promoted Chicago police Deputy Chief Dion Boyd, 57, apparently took his own life at work the other day.

There might be a motive, a back story. But I don’t know what it is, and I’m not pushing to know.

Prisoner opens fire outside NW Side police station, with at least 3 officers wounded; prisoner shot several times

it’s unclear how the prisoner had a gun, since he should have been searched before being placed inside the police wagon.

Chicago police officers gather outside the 25th District police station, 5555 W. Grand Ave., after at least one officer was shot there Thursday morning.

A prisoner being transported in a police wagon to the 25th District police station at Grand and Central opened fire Thursday morning when the doors were opened, wounding at least three officers, one seriously, sources said.

Job stress

Newly promoted CPD deputy chief dies in apparent suicide at Homan Square facility
The death of Deputy Chief Dion Boyd was announced by CPD Supt. David Brown, who urged officers to take care of themselves: “There is no shame in reaching out for help.” Boyd was sworn in as deputy chief of criminal networks on July 15.

This will piss people off

And the mayor says the police over-reacted and she will discipline some of them.

Feds have arrived!

The initial wave of Federal agents arrived at Midway airport at about 2:30 p.m. today.  More arriving this evening and tomorrow. Just in time!

This video is disgusting....and now she wants to discipline the police

This is what Chiraq looks like under Mayor Lightfoot’s watch
Along with regular weekend double-digit shootings, Chiraq has devolved into this:
The day after the above scene, the police union is asking President Trump for help because the mayor won’t stop the rioters and violent thugs. From MyFoxChicago“Chicago police union wants Trump to intervene as video seems to shows protesters rioters throwing things at cops.”
And while Mayor Lightfoot IS being derelict in her duty to provide law and order in her city, she’s got her priorities straight:
What a disgrace this mayor is.

It's Time to Federalize the CPD

18 officers injured (it could have been worse) and only 12 arrest. Was there an order to stand down? I wonder where that came from. 

Trump should take control of the Chicago Police Department immediately and supplement it with help from several federal agencies. This period of Fed control would be six months and would be extended if needed. Gone with be the control by an anti-police mayor and input from hostile members of the city council. Also gone would be the out of control murder rate and the senseless looting of downtown Chicago. Such an act of Federal control would save countless lives and a great city. 


No Support

So eighteen cops get injured by thrown objects, firework mortars, bicycles, bats, pipes, etc. At least one is in serious condition with a fractured eye socket and another with broken kneecap and countless burns. Condemnation by the politicians?

Nope - they tweet support for the rioters and condemn the police for fulfilling their duty to the citizens of Chicago and the Rule of Law.

Here's the mayor:

She didn't visit a single officer nor told the rioters to knock it off. In fact, every single fucking politician claimed it was the polices' fault for defending a statue. Numerous "progressive" alderassholes openly supported this destruction. Prickwrinkle came out of her lair to support rioters. All blamed the police.

Begging your fucking pardon, but when did property damage become allowable? When did shooting exploding balls of gunpowder at any person become legal? Because if this is the "new normal" then everything is fair game.

This good bye tour.....

CPD has evolved, no longer aiming to ‘impose our will,’ retiring high-ranking cop says
“We got to just say, ‘We’re going to come in, and we’re going to work with you to make your community safer so your kids can play in the park. And our kids can play in the park,’ ” Anthony Riccio says.

When Anthony Riccio became a Chicago cop in 1986, he says the Chicago Police Department was an “occupying force.

“We would try to lock down the neighborhoods,” Riccio, who is retiring as first deputy superintendent Aug. 1 after nearly 34 years with the department, said in an interview Tuesday. “We’ve evolved now to the point where we’re more of guardians. We want to work with the community to make it safe. We’re

Rumor going around that the death toll last weekend was 6 higher than reported. It seems that they reclassified the deaths because they tested positive for Coronavirus.

Blue and Black Lives Matter protesters clash at Brooklyn rally, No black people involved

This is very telling to have Black Lived Maters protesters, and none of them were black.  Showing once again that BLM is a fake movement run by woke-idiot lesbians who are pushing a Marxist agenda that has nothing to do with black people.    
NY Post reports it was a Blue Lives Brawl, as these dramatic photos show.
Tempers flared in Brooklyn Saturday as anti-cop protesters crashed a Blue Lives Matter rally — complete with furious finger-pointing and a lot of shouting, pushing and shoving.
Some three dozen anti-cop protesters showed up just before
