911 Calls: 'Animals' Fighting on Beach on Memorial Day
NBC Chicago ^ | 6/24/2011

Posted on 06/26/2011 6:16:26 AM PDT by Altura Ct.

A number of emergency calls on Memorial Day could pose a credibility problem for Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his new police superintendent.

The official word from city officials has been that North Avenue Beach was closed that holiday due to concerns for public health. But calls made by beach-goers to Chicago's Office of Emergency Management and Communications seem to support claims that gang activity was also at play.

"There's a fight breaking out on the beach, because there's nothing but animals covering this beach today," one caller is heard saying in recordings obtained by WLS-AM radio through a Freedom of Information Act request.

"You can't even walk along the bike path or ride along the bike path. There's the crowd control. What the hell is going on?" the caller fumes.

Another caller selling chairs and umbrellas at the Oak Street Beach concession stand also called 911 after he said he was harassed.

"We have a couple of gentlemen, well, actually a few people, threatening to shoot us, threatening to whoop our ass. They're unhooking our equipment," the caller said.

By 6 p.m. on that holiday, the beach was closed.

In a statement released late Thursday evening, police officials said the release of the calls changes nothing, and maintained that the decision to close the beach was made "in the interest of public safety and public health."

Indeed, with temperatures in the 90s, about a half-dozen people at North Avenue Beach were treated for heat exhaustion. Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said ambulances could not get to victims.

"Chicago police responded to incidents at Oak Street Beach, however no arrests were made in connection to any batteries at this location," the department said.

Gee, who'd have thunk it? A Chicago mayor lying and his handpicked supernintendo keeping the public in the dark?

Lets see if this makes sense. It is hot out, people are getting heat exhaustion, so the police close the Beaches where people go to cool off. Makes sense to me!

I'd hate to be white and live in Chicago. They might as well post a "No Whites allowed" sign...

Gang activity in Chicago??

Hizzonor Mayor Rahm lied about it??

I’m just shocked. Shocked I tell you! Shocked!

The one time I ever drove through Chicago was in a U-Haul at night, in hopes of avoiding the worst traffic. As we cruised through town, out of nowhere, some black teenager jumped off the berm on one side of the freeway, dashed across the road right in front of me and was gone to the other side before I could even hit the brakes. He had a cop in hot foot pursuit right behind him, but the Officer wasn’t stupid and didn’t chase the kid through traffic.

Great place to be from, Chicago....

I went to school in and then lived in Chicago in the 70’s. During one very heavy rainstorm, the South Side youths were offering to push cars through the road underpasses for money (much like the squeegee guys in NY). And you had better pay them. It was a bad situation then. Sounds like it is much worse now.

First hot day in the history of Chicago apparently.

Naturally there would be a convenient ‘health crisis.’

You reminded me of when I last left Washington DC with my two sons in the car as we turned left to get on the highway (with traffic) we heard a loud thump on the right side of the car. When we stopped for gas (in NJ) I saw what looked like an egg! My car out of so many got egged! It could have been a bullet. You can't always be aware but be alert of where you are at any moment. Works for me. n/s

Spare me. As if that's going to make a difference. There are too many brain-dead, idiot, lazy, government dependents in Chicago to elect anything other than a Rahm Emanuel. Let them stew in their filth.

African-American flash mobs. Anyone in the African-American community going to do something about this, or does “solidarity” require that they all keep silent?

When the radical left is in a leadership position in any city, it is as dangerous for Whites to live there as it was for a black to live in an area ruled by the KKK in the segregation era.

The sooner whites figure out the real spirit behind “diversity’s” mental segregation through minority race pride and hate and blame whitey doctrines, the sooner they will stop serving as the human door mat for the liberal elite of this country. If white Americans wait until they are a minority to torpedo multiculturalism, it will be too late to change it without winning a race war.

According to Chicago's Bold, New, Better than ever Police Chief this behavior is the fault of Sarah Palin and her gun touting ways. Nothing like a New Jersey Idiot to blame everything on Bush, Palin or Reagan.

WTG Chicago!

Forty years ago I got lost driving in the area, and repeatedly would get off the highways to try and get my bearings...but get right back on when I found myself in a bad area.

Only later did I learn that there's NO "good part of town"....

we were traveling cross country a few years ago, and somehow decided if we veered a little south of Chicago we could miss a lot of traffic, tolls etc.....we went right thru Chicago Heights.....

I hate the growing mistrust of whites against blacks...I personally have a wonderful black dil....and a biracial grandson....but it is what it is.....

I'd like to see the black leaders rise up but who am I kidding....
