It's going to be fun reading the NY Times coverage about a cover up of information or great public interest that could have changed the outcome of an election. Cringe!

Well, there should be an investigation. BTW, Muleman, I don't think I'd call Emanuel "Obama's boy". He is far from that.

Mule -

What exactly is your point? Do you live here in Chicago? If not, come and visit. I can show you around. Rough times but great city.

Try the pizza and blues clubs.


Lee - 12/16/2015 at 12:55 PM

And I do think the protests have gone WAY too far. I just shake my head when I turn on the morning news. Why interrupt other people's lives?


BillyBlastoff - 12/16/2015 at 04:43 PM

Obama's boy?

Wow. Another day, another spewing of pig crap from Muleman's rotted, putrid, filthy, gob hole.

Hey Mule? Do you polish that black soul or does it stay that shade just by sucking in all the light of the universe?

Go play in traffic you disgusting waste of life.

My point here was the fact that the NY Times greatly aided Bush's second-term campaign (and probably saved it for him) by sitting on their story on illegal NSA mass surveillance and data collection programs for 8 months until the election was over.

I expect the editorial commentary to be deafeningly silent or over the top hypocritical.

________________________________________________________________________

Not that it has anything to do with Rahm Emanuel's failure to keep the citizens of Chicago safe but Pres. Bush had the legal authority for what you misrepresent as the "NSA mass surveillance and data collection program".

That authority was given when both the democrats and republicans voted for and passed the Patriot Act.

Obama, in his usual political rhetoric railed against the Patriot Act as a candidate but as soon as he was in office approved expanding and strengthening it.

So much for your rhetoric.

More on point, why is it you liberals just don't care how many black people are killed?

For all the liberals whining about “gun control” not one offers a draft of legislation, calls for increased law enforcement or fixing the broken gun purchase background check system.

The calls for “gun-control” from the left are nothing more than empty words that accomplish nothing.

pops you really are an idiot.

Did you read the actual bills? No? I didn’t think so.

The bills drafted by democrats would have made it easy for the government to take away the ability for law-abiding Americans to defend themselves against gun-wielding criminals.

The second bill would tie the gun purchase background check to the so-called terrorist watch list which has been proven to be incomplete, inaccurate and a joke.

Sen. Feinstein tried in 2007 to get the terrorists banned from purchasing guns in the U.S. Harry Reid killed the bill in the democrat controlled Senate.

You aren't very far off the point. There are those on HTW, particularly in the WP, that want to drive off everyone who doesn't agree with them in general. Then there are those who would whittle down that even more to just the ones that agree with them in all particulars.

Some folks just don't want to let others express their opinion, and try to belittle and abuse those who do.

I've been posting on the WP for over ten years now and I've never once thought anyone should be "driven off" for simply disagreeing.

As far as insults and such go, people tend to classify insult severity according to their own personal biases (in this case, usually political) to begin with.

I've seen some where the second post in a thread contained some rather unneeded comments on the poster,
the posters' intelligence, and racial comments, just because of who posted it. Didn't matter where the content came from or what it was about.

Hey I have had plenty of problems with him. Like how long we should celebrate Stanley Cup Victories. Not to mention his love of rap. He won't let me by his hype man which pisses me off as I say "What" as good as any hyper in rap. Throw in my boxers up to my underarms and my pants around my knees, how can I not get the job?

Jerry - there are those that have opinions and then there are trolls that just fight without any actual substance. Going on and on like a broken record. Muleman is one of those.

Personally I think the WP helped to really hurt this forum along with the troll invasion that drove away many originals. Why people go to a band's forum to discuss/argue politics is beyond me. Especially those that never chat about the band, music or an positive subject at all. You can search back hundreds of posts and Muleman is all WP and hate. Not sure he is even an ABB fan. No evidence of it anyway.

Those here for a long time know how great a community it was. Shame.

Chicago is an awesome city with so much to offer. Besides the hockey which of course would be enough for me anyway. Hell I love just flying into the city. It always feels like the plane is going to land into the water.

Same with going into NY. I love flying over The Statue of Liberty.

Next time you are coming to Chicago let me know. Black Hawk tix are a toughie since they got good but I can get freebies to both baseball teams.


CanadianMule - 12/18/2015 at 08:16 PM

I will you up on that offer, Lee. Different job now so travel far less but Chicago is definitely on my list. My wife's Aunt lives there so a visit is in order. Plus she gets me cool jackets/sweaters from Rush University and I need a new one. Everyone always thinks it is the band even the guys in Rush wondered. Alex told me a few years ago that he would be getting some on their next stop in Chicago. Not sure if he did.

My buddy also a Hawks fan was there for his Bday in October. His wife got him primo tickets for the Hawks and White Sox games. Plus she surprised him with the announcement on the big screens wishing him a Happy Birthday. The Hawks email you a picture of your birthday wishes on the screen. Simple thing but still cool and he has it on the wall now. You would be amazed at this guy's house as it is like a Blackhawks museum. Every room covered with Hawks stuff.

I need one of those pictures of my name on the board just to get even with him.

Sorry for the hijack. Everyone return to hating each other.

When my son was two, my brother gave him a Hawk jersey with his name on the back. It was huge on him so it fit him for years. We got a big pup (Crash) a bit over a year ago and during the playoffs I couldn't resist. Sure enough it fit Crash perfectly and he walked around proudly.

I told everyone that is the only "dressing up" that Crash gets. Have to protect my dog from the ladies. When Chicago scored and we erupted, Crash would join in howling away.

Speaking of Bobby Hull, in October my wife gave me this awesome Chicago sweater/hoodie. #9 Bobby Hull. It is freaking awesome. She is real good for surprises like that. Wife and kids shake their heads as people stop and talk Hawks with me all the time. In any city that we go to.

A few years ago, my Dad gave my brothers and I Hawks Leather Jackets. Real nice ones. I was in shock. He busted our balls growing up and was pretty tough but he has his moments. That was definitely one of them.

One of the most notable was when we had one of our shows at Chicago Stadium and the locals broke into our trailers overnight and stole every thing they could carry.

I know that there are some nice areas of Chicago but the crime is out of control and the democrats who run the city refuse to do anything to stop it.






Sorry about your things. Seriously.

But not sure what politics has to do with anything though.



Don't you realize that when the Republicans are running things that there is no crime, gangs or murder. You really need to start reading the script before rehearsals.

Chicago is one of the greatest cities in the world. It is a mecca for music and food. Architecturally it is one of America's crowning jewels. I've never once felt unsafe on any of my visits. Not walking or using the mass transit systems.

I hope to be returning this year for some ball games. I love Chicago.

What large cities are run by Republicans and what is their crime rate I wonder?

Hate to tell you but goes for pretty much every major American city. Some would say the entire country sadly. Republicans sell guns that are used and then you blame the Democrats for not controlling it. That's funny.

No protest here. I hate Chicago deep dish pizza. I grew up in NJ, the land of illiegal Sicilian immigrants. I like me pizza thin and greasy so you have to fold the slice over to keep the toppings from sliding off.

Baltimore murder rate 5th highest in the country. Higher than Chicago.

http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/crime/blog/bal-new-fbi-statistics -baltimore-no-5-in-murder-rate-20141110-story.html

Maryland has the 9th highest violent crime rate in the country.


http://247wallst.com/special-report/2013/10/04/the-most-dangerous-states-in -america/

While Maryland has the ninth-highest violent crime rate in the country, it also has the third-lowest poverty rate, the highest median income and one of the highest proportions of adults with a college degree. The reason for this discrepancy is likely the concentration of high crime in Baltimore. The Baltimore metropolitan area also had the ninth highest violent crime rate in the country last year and accounted for nearly a third of all the incidents in the state that year.


And Baltimore passed its 2014 murder total in August this year.

Chicago homicides climbed dramatically in January, police say
Published February 01, 2016 - Associated Press

Tensions high in Chicago following police shooting

CHICAGO – Chicago saw a dramatic spike in the number of homicides and shootings in January — the bloodiest start to a year in at least 16 years and a blow to a police force struggling to regain public trust following the release of a video of a white officer fatally shooting a black teen.

In a news release Monday, Chicago police reported that 51 homicides were committed in the city last month, compared with 29 in January 2015. The number of shooting incidents more than doubled, from 119 last January to 242 this January. The number of shooting victims increased from 136 to 292.

"We can't put our finger on" specific reasons for the increase, the city's interim police superintendent, John Escalante said. But he noted the increase coincides with an equally dramatic decrease in the number of street stops made in January. He said a policy change that went into effect in this year requires officers to fill out lengthier forms than the brief "contact cards" they used through 2015 and that officers are going through training now to help them deal with the new forms.

Escalante also said officers have expressed concerns "about being the next viral video. Even when they're doing something right, they're concerned that their actions will be questioned and they will be the one that goes viral."

Chicago has become a national symbol of gun violence since at least 2012, when the number of homicides climbed past the 500 mark, far higher than any other U.S. city. With police initiating a number of crime-fighting measures and spending millions of dollars on overtime, the city saw the total fall closer to 400 in each of the next two years, and 2014 ended with the fewest homicides in decades. But last year the number of homicides and shooting incidents rose again.

There has been a growing concern that the rising number of shootings and homicides in Chicago, and around the country, can be linked to less aggressive policing following high-profile officer shootings, some of which were caught on camera and inflamed public outrage.

In October, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said officers are going "fetal," pulling back and second-guessing themselves for fear that scrutiny of their actions would get them into trouble.

Then in late November, the city dealt with one of the biggest crises in Chicago Police Department history — and of Emanuel's political career— sparked by the release of a video showing a white officer shooting black teenager Laquan McDonald 16 times. Officer Jason Van Dyke has been charged with murder in the shooting, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy was fired and the U.S. Department of Justice launched a civil rights investigation.

Escalante said he does not believe the McDonald video has made officers reluctant to do their jobs, point out that the department didn't have a significant drop in the number of street stops in December.

Baltimore and Chicago are both run by democrats and in both cities black people continue to be slaughtered; almost exclusively by other black people.

Where these cities rank on some list isn't much comfort to the families of the dead.

The democrats in charge of those cities are doing nothing to stop the carnage.

The failure to protect the citizens in these cities lies purely with the democrats.

Does the mayor micro manage the job? No. The mayor has nothing to do with the crime rate. To think that is the case is completely stupid, even for you. Economic conditions, unemployment, lack of upward mobility, these are things that cause crime rates to rise, not the mayor, Mr. Executive.

At this point in time, I don't think it would make much difference. Since laws in the US cannot be used ex post facto the recall legislation couldn't be used for past problems.
The matter now is that Emanuel, and probably everybody closely associated with him will become non-entities in future elections. They will be probably not be re-elected or elected to any position.
It would not be beyond belief that a law and order Republican could be elected to be the next Chicago mayor, and he could have a few Republican council members too.

There is now just too much animosity toward him and his group.

Yup.

Rahm was forced into a run-off election the last time against a no-name candidate even with Obama flying in for fund raisers and speeches.

CHICAGO – Homicides and shootings have doubled in Chicago so far this year compared with the same period in 2015, and police have seized fewer illegal guns — more possible signals that officers have become less aggressive in the aftermath of a shooting video released last fall.

Interim Police Superintendent John Escalante said Tuesday that he was so concerned about officers possibly holding back that he filmed a video for the entire department in which he encouraged them to do their jobs and assured them that a federal probe of the force was not aimed at individuals.

"We are aware that there is a concern among the rank and file about not wanting to be the next YouTube video that goes viral," Escalante said in the video before introducing a segment of his own to remind viewers "why we took this job and swore this oath of office."
The statistics come almost exactly three months after the city, on the orders of a judge, released the video of Jason Van Dyke, a white officer, firing 16 shots at Laquan McDonald, a black teen killed in 2014. Since that day, Van Dyke has been charged with murder, and Superintendent Garry McCarthy has been fired. The Department of Justice launched a civil rights probe of the police force, and Mayor Rahm Emanuel has sought to regain public trust in the department and his own leadership.

The crime figures offer a stark reminder that the nation's third-largest city is nowhere near shedding its reputation for frequent street violence. The vast majority of the bloodshed is happening in neighborhoods on the south and west sides, away from the Loop business district.

In the first two months of the year, authorities recorded 95 homicides, compared with 48 for the same period last year. Thus far, there have been 406 shootings, or more than twice as many as the 180 reported in the same two-month period in 2015.

The McDonald case raised concerns that officers, fearful of attracting negative attention, may be pulling back and becoming more passive. Quietly, officers say they are not going to take chances that might land them in legal trouble or threaten their jobs and pensions.

"I'm hearing that police are standing down because they're afraid what might happen to them, that when they get a call, they wait to see if someone answers it first," said the Rev. Michael Pfleger, a prominent Roman Catholic priest and activist on the South Side. "I get really angry about that. If they are not going to do police work, they need to get out."

Evidence of a pullback starts with an 80 percent decrease in the number of street stops that the officers have made since the first of the year. Escalante said he believes that decrease is largely tied to the fact that since the first of the year, officers have been required to fill out far lengthier forms than the brief "contact cards" they used to use.

The new forms were the result of changes in state law and an agreement between the department and the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois that required Chicago police to more thoroughly document and monitor street stops.

Escalante said he hopes the newer and simpler forms the officers started filling out on Tuesday will help bring those numbers back up.

Officers' unwillingness to make as many stops as they once did might also explain the steep decline in gun seizures. Normally, the number of illegal guns recovered by police would climb with the number of homicides and shooting incidents, but the opposite has happened. So far this year, the total number of illegal guns seized by the department has fallen from 955 in the first two months of last year to 829 so far this year.

The decrease is particularly striking after the way McCarthy used to put seized weapons on display at news conferences. The displays were meant to show that his department was taking more guns off the streets than any other police force in the nation and to urge lawmakers to enact tougher gun laws.

The president of the union representing Chicago police officers did not respond Tuesday to messages from The Associated Press seeking comment.

Escalante, who has not put guns on display as often, said he has not deemphasized gun seizures. He pointed to encouraging recent signs that include a 33 percent increase in gun arrests in the last four weeks and a 20 percent increase in the number of street stops officers have made in the last two weeks.

He said he is optimistic that the street-stop numbers will continue to climb with the new shorter form that replaces the two-page investigatory stop form officers have been filling out since Jan. 1. And he said he is hopeful that certain changes, including the deployment of 100 newly trained sergeants to increase supervision, will ease the crime numbers.

"I believe they (officers) are starting to make the effort again," he said, "to try to do what they can to bring this violence down."

Chicago on track for deadliest year in nearly 2 decades
By Matt Finn - Published March 02, 2016 - FoxNews.com

Chicago police display some of the thousands of illegal firearms they confiscated during the year in their battle against gun violence in Chicago. At a news conference Tuesday, March 1, 2016, Chicago police said there have been about twice as many homicides and shootings so far this year in Chicago as compared to the same period in 2015. (AP)

The city of Chicago is witnessing its deadliest start to a year in nearly two decades -- 102 people have been killed and 475 people were shot in the city since January 1st.

The official police homicide count sits at 97, which includes only murders as opposed to what police consider justified homicides such as self-defense. 2016 is the most violent start to a year in the city since 1997, the Chicago Tribune reported.

“The level of violence is unacceptable and CPD continues to aggressively target those responsible, especially in neighborhoods where gang activity is most active,” CPD spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi wrote in an email.

Police blame some of the surge in violence on gang conflicts and retaliatory crimes, many of which officers now say begin on social media before spilling out onto the streets.

A recent study by the University of Chicago Crime Lab concludes that combining the high level of gun carrying in Chicago with impulsive behavior and drug use has also contributed to the extreme bloodshed. Last year over 7,000 guns were recovered from the streets of Chicago—more than New York and Los Angeles combined--according to police.

To complicate matters, the hubs of Chicago’s crime, the city’s west and south sides, potentially have become even more dangerous as the so-called “Ferguson Effect” is impacting how police patrol the streets. Analysts say officers are engaging less out of a fear of lawsuits or being labeled racist. Even Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in October 2015 that officers have become “fetal.”

“In Chicago, like a lot of other cities, the surfacing of videos and protests against police has had at least the short term impact on some of making them more passive than one would like,” former Chicago Tribune Managing Editor and Poynter Institute Media Correspondent, Jim Warren, tells Fox News.

Adding to the Ferguson Effect, the Chicago Police Department is also dealing with an “ACLU effect.” In an exclusive new agreement with the American Civil Liberties Union, Chicago Police officers are now required to fill out a two-page contact card after every engagement ranging from a simple ID check to an arrest.

The Chicago Fraternal Order of Police says the ACLU contact cards are burdensome and officers worry the compiled statistics could somehow be misconstrued and used against them. As a result, Chicago Police reported officers engaged a staggering 80 percent less in the month of January.

“They don’t want to be the next headline,” Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President, Dean Angelo, told Fox News. “It’s the amount of the above and beyond type of activity that officers were engaged in that we may not see at that same level ever again.”

The ACLU, however, denies its contact cards have anything to do with Chicago’s violence and tells Fox News since March 1st officers are filling out a more streamlined report with changes made based on police feedback.

In response to the skyrocketing crime CPD has formed a Gun Violence Task Force, teaming up with the Cook County Sherriff’s office and other local and federal agencies including Homeland Security.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart says he hopes the committee can implement some type of small emergency changes without legislation, commenting that he gets “hives” when he hears about another task force.

“If we can generate four, five, 10 small things to help our communities we will have accomplished something,” Dart said.

One of the challenges the task force faces is identifying who the big gun brokers are that deliver firearms in large quantities to the city’s streets. The University of Chicago Crime Lab findings indicate most gun offenders aren’t participators in the illegal gun market and many gun offenders admit to police they buy guns simply to protect themselves against everyone else who already carries a weapon.

Another common complaint heard in Chicago is that its judicial system is soft, especially in comparison to a city like New York where people reportedly drop their weapon and run from police. Dart says the task force will look into a potential gap between police and the state attorney's office.

“People in New York know they’re going away if they get locked up with a gun. Here, it’s happened before and I’m back out. I make bond and I’m back out,” Angelo said. “There’s really no serious repercussion and I hope that changes.”

The uptick in violence on the streets of Chicago comes as City Hall is dealing with its own turmoil. Chicago is in the midst of months of historic protests and unrest amid strong demands for Mayor Emanuel to resign.

Emanuel, working under record low approval ratings, has faced fierce criticism about the delayed release of previous CPD videos depicting white officers shooting unarmed black teens. Critics and protestors have alleged Emanuel tried to bury the tapes to secure his re-election last year.

In November, a judge ruled Chicago Police must release a video depicting white police officer Jason Van Dyke shooting unarmed black teen Laquan McDonald to death. The video sparked outrage and the former police Superintendent Garry McCarthy was fired. Van Dyke was charged with murder but has pleaded not guilty and awaits trial.

In an effort to be more transparent since, Emanuel recently announced CPD videos depicting shootings will now be released within 60 to 90 days, which is also a concern to police who might feel releasing the tapes too soon could impede an investigation or exacerbate any allegations.

Angelo argues the city should be taking more input directly from police who patrol the streets.

“Everyone’s become the expert in policing although they’ve never had a weapon on their hip, they’ve never got into a squad car, they’ve never put a badge on their chest and they never went into a situation when people were running from it but they all have an opinion and they all have a reason and they all have a design on police work,” Angelo said.

Chicago police announced in early March that among some of its immediate solutions to combat crime, the interim police chief is deploying 100 newly trained sergeants, working with the Chicago Department of Buildings to expedite the demolition of abandoned buildings that can serve as a hub of gang activity, and saturating high crime areas with added police.
Police say the increased enforcement is already seeing results: since the middle of February, gun arrests are up by 43%, and for the entire month of February, arrests for murder are up by more than 40% from last year.

The reason nobody is talking about Chicago gang violence, or any other city's gang violence, is because it is not new. Inner-city gang violence has been going on for centuries in cities all over the world - frequent mass shootings in America have not. Frequent mass shootings in America are a new phenomena, and deserve the extra attention they are getting. Stopping gang violence isn't about gun laws - it's a much bigger issue than that. Gangs exist because they don't abide by any law, so I don't see how your logic applies. Furthermore, if gang members choose to enter the game and shoot each other dead, it's not so much of a tragedy as dozens of 1st graders being slaughtered while in school - surely you can see that difference.

This is another clear example of how your anger and hatred causes you to use poor judgment and cripples your ability to think and reason.

So where are the so-called black civil rights leaders?
Where is their community organizer?
Where is Black Lies Matter?
Where are the Democrats who claim to be the party of the black people?
Where is the media?

President Trump has repeatedly offered help and the Democrat Mayor of Chicago has refused the help.

The President did have DOJ send over 40 prosecutors to help stop the plea-bargaining and the pre-trail release of the shooters that was common by for almost 8 years, but those prosecutors are having difficulty with the activist judges.

What's disgusting is you using the term genocide. Here is what it really means:

The term "genocide" did not exist before 1944. It is a very specific term, referring to violent crimes committed against groups with the intent to destroy the existence of the group.

Since almost all of the violence in Chicago is black on black or gang on gang, it is not genocide. Almost all of the murders are within 3 or 4 neighborhoods. It is not a different group trying to destroy the existence of blacks. Try again.

The racist right wing nuts that belittled Black Lives Matter movement (which included marches that were anything but apathetic) says otherwise. Urban gun violence is not "genocide". As a matter of fact, violent crime is down in large urban areas, especially if you look at the rate per capita.

This has gone from pretty disgusting to bizarre. There is no statistical correlation between violent crime and Mayoral party affiliation. Of the 50 largest U.S. cities, 14 have Republican Mayors. Of the 50 Most Violent U.S. cities per capita (Chicago is ranked #28, so find another target maybe), 10 have Republican Mayors. Not a big gap when talking about urban crime. There are hundreds of thousands of safe cities with Democratic Mayors, just like there are safe Republican-led cities. Get a grip, dude.

If you have solutions, let's hear them.

Keep trying to run away of the Democrat's culpability in the shooting and killing of black people.
Obviously the lefties here do not care about black people.

You would think that mule would live in a law and order city seeing as how he attacks crime in cities run by Democrats. So I checked on Frederick Maryland and it has a Republican mayor, so ithough crime would be low.

No, it isn't.

Considering that Baltimore has a high crime rate, you would think that Frederick would be lower than the state average.

No, it isn't.

The issue is not general crime, it is the shooting and murder of black people which does not happen in Frederick.

Fredericks Mayor is a Democrat.

Keller remains a leading WP uniformed low-info voter and is incapable of sourcing factual data.

I am not squirming out of anything. You live in a crime ridden city that has had a Republican mayor until Jan 2018.



Meanwhile, since you are such a law and order guy, Michael Cohen has just pled guilty to 8 charges. One of them was concerning paying off Stormy Daniels and being reimbursed by Trump. Sounds like your orange hero is going down.

Have a nice day.

Not that it has anything to do with Rahm Emanuel's failure to keep the citizens of Chicago safe but Pres. Bush had the legal authority for what you misrepresent as the "NSA mass surveillance and data collection program".

That authority was given when both the democrats and republicans voted for and passed the Patriot Act.

Obama, in his usual political rhetoric railed against the Patriot Act as a candidate but as soon as he was in office approved expanding and strengthening it.

So much for your rhetoric.

More on point, why is it you liberals just don't care how many black people are killed?






Never sure whether you are that twisted or are just trolling whenever you post Mule.
Really shouldn't respond but:

Obviously the lefties here do not care about black people being shot or murdered.

Where are the so-called black civil rights leaders, Black Lies Matter, Chicago's favorite community organizer and so forth?

You certainly won't find them in Chicago.

Certainly won't find them in Frederick Maryland either. They have their own rampant crime.

Not one black person shot or killed here this or last year.

You certainly can't say that about the cities run by Democrats where thousands of black people are shot every year.

Because you now have a Democratic mayor. We get it.
