Top cop ‘optimistic’ that visiting gang leaders’ homes cuts violence

BY FRANK MAIN Staff Reporter February 24, 2014

When 14-year-old Venzel Richardson was shot to death on the South Side earlier this month, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy ordered his staff to draw up a list of warring gang leaders in the area.

Within 48 hours, the commander of the Grand Crossing District was knocking on their doors, warning them to halt the shooting.

Cmdr. Glenn Evans told the young men they’d face stiff prison terms for their next violent crime. But they also were given a contact for job training and other social services.

No one has been charged with the teenager’s Feb. 12 murder at 61st and Vernon, but the conflict between the gangs in that pocket of Woodlawn ebbed.

Says a lot about Chicago politics - find the crooked and the violent and offer them taxpayer-funded booty.

Superintendent McCarthy has new millennium thugs, who kill people for fun, confused with 1950’s juvenile delinquents who stole hubcaps
and dared to smoke cigarettes while underage.

Yes, I like Chief Craig's crime prevention strategies.

A former co-worker of mine from Indonesia told me gang problems were fairly minor there. The cops had a habit of going through local rap sheets on a slow night. The career criminals had a habit of turning up dead. Of course, they investigated. But the investigations generally turned up untraceable causes like street fights which nobody witnessed. Or sudden lead poisoning.

Chief Craig's attitude appears to be spreading across the department and now the assistant chief is saying the same.

3 different Detroit homeowners used guns to defend themselves against intruders this week

Its getting so a thug can't rob nobody without gambling with his life.

“the commander of the Grand Crossing District was knocking on their doors” collecting the juice and telling them about the readjusted rates.

Chief Craig is convinced that gum-chewing boby-soxers in Jr. Highs across the country may get into smoking cigarettes and drinking cokes with aspirin!

Cmdr. Glenn Evans told the young men they’d face stiff prison terms for their next violent crime. But they also were given a contact for job training and other social services.

"Listen up Beaver, I catch you and Wally dipping Sally's pigtails into the inkwell again, you two can forget about those new Flexible Fliers for Christmas!"

Question?
Since any "Gangsta" is apt to have several baby mommies and several cribs, how will the typical AAA Urban Police Chief decide which to visit on any given day?

Question?
Why after Obama's work as a community organizer, do these fellows need help accessing welfare services?

Question?
Do not these chaps and their various baby mommas already get welfare subsidies?
Rent?
AFDC?
Food Stamps?

But they also were given a contact for job training and other social services.

Please re-read the opening. I maligned Chief Craig, who at least looks like a tough cop who ain't gonna take much crap from Detroit politicians and thugs. (Often interchangeable). Chief, I am a bad editor. Don't shoot. Sue me.

I kinda figured as much and decided to let you figure it out on your own. No harm no foul.

Gee, maybe if he started doing his job and actually tried solving crimes and arresting bad guys there wouldn't be so many murders and so much crime in Chicago.

Kids nn the ghetto - the ones who are following the rules and doing their best under horrible conditions - need hugs, midnight basketball, subsidized summer camps, mentors - the whole nine yards. All the crap the gangs are getting...

Gang bangers need the back of our hand and public scorn.

This idiot needs to STOP reinforcing horrible behavior... and start reinforcing the kids who are working to overcome the horrors...

McJersey's lifetime abuse of booze is finally catching up to him.

Last week McDrunk totally lost it and went off the deep-end with an insane rant at a District Commander. The reason...because the beat cops in that district, the 7th (007), didn't prevent a random stabbing & murder before it took even place.

What happened was a 72 year old man stabbed his *friend*, a 69 year old dude during an argument over a coat and the dude died. This occurred inside a nursing home, not on the streets, but McAssh-le didn't care. He went off on the 7th District Commander for letting this murder occur.

I'm serious, there were loads of witnesses --> Cops. You can read the comments by real Chi Cops for yourselves right here: Second City Cop, Is the Bro-Mance Over?

Note: apparently the 7th District commander is a real piece of work anyway and the coppers call him 'Rick Flair'. And CPD Supt Gerry McCarthy isn't liked much either -- he's basically loathed by Chi Coppers. And he's called anything but by his real name, i.e: Gmac, McJersey, McDrunk, McCompStat, and a fave of mine -- McStreetLightAssassin, a moniker he earned for what he did as a NYPD 'Commander' -- Shoot out Street Lights when he was DRUNK as a skunk.

McStupid also likes driving while drunk and was busted a few times in NYC (he always skated) and every weekend evening he can found in some upscale Chi Gin Mill getting hammered. Monday mornings are hell for him thanks to world class hangovers. But this time it really takes the cake. Maybe 'Minority Report' was on the Gin Mill TV and McMoron thought it was a documentary.

Oh, and the 72 year old guy who stabbed *his friend* -- Cops found out that he's in Chi's notorious Gangster Disciples street gang! 72 and still 'bangin , thats gotta be a record!! LOL.

Hey Rahm; Fat, Drunk, and Stupid is no way to run a police dept. It's way past time you do something about McDimwit.

I think it’s a great idea. I think he and Rahm should go on visitations WITHOUT GUNS. Just like the rest of the populace that those boneheads disarm!!

If I got the story right Code Pink said they’re no different than Al-Qaeda. OK maybe backwards but it still adds up.

In modern cities, calling someone the “Top Cop” is almost like saying “Dumb @$$”.
