The city has become absolutely unlivable.
"The point of [so-called "assault weapon" bans]...is not to ban firearms that are dangerous, it's to ban firearms that gun owners want to own because the people making the laws don't like gun owners. If we want to buy non-semiauto AR-style rifles, they'll ban those too, and for the same reason."

A large hunting knife... surely it was under the 2.5 inches to make it legal in Chicago - he wouldn't want to break Chicago laws.

We are thinking about the Charleston South Carolina... a $550k house for a SC resident runs about $2,100/year in property tax. And the income tax isn't that much higher than Illinois.

Cops Investigating Second Report Of Person Shot By Pellet Gun At CTA Station


For the second time in less than 24-hours, Chicago police are investigating a report of a person shot by a pellet gun at a CTA train station.

An Uptown man called police around 2:45 p.m. on New Year’s Eve to report that he had been shot by a BB gun while at a train station. Chicago police tonight declined to offer further details about where the incident took place. The victim declined EMS treatment.

On Saturday, a 21-year-old man shot in the face with a pellet gun as he stood on the Grand Red Line station platform around 8:40 p.m.

That man was treated for his injuries at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said. A source reported that a pellet had become lodged in the man’s face.

One witness reported that he believes that Saturday's shooter was either inside the conductor cabin or standing between cars of a southbound train when the man was shot.

No one is in custody for either incident.

Early on November 27, a man reported being shot in the neck and stomach by a pellet gun as he stood outside of a Boystown bar at Halsted and Cornelia. The man, who refused medical treatment and did not file a police report, said the offender shot at him from a black car that was moving eastbound on Cornelia.

Shot fired at Blue Line train in Logan Square, no one injured

No one was injured when someone shot at a CTA Blue Line train early New Year’s Day in the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

A single bullet was fired through the train’s window about 2 a.m. in the 1900 block of North Western, according to Chicago Police.

No one was injured, but the train had to be evacuated, police said.

No one was in custody Monday morning as Area North detectives investigated.

You know what I know, but it's fun to guess so I'm going to say she tackled him and sat on his chest til police arrived.

Some people living here have their head up their butt so far they can't see the truth.

 

I was complaining about the crime at work and some of my pro-Chicago coworkers were saying that it only happens in certain neighborhoods. Well, not anymore. The gang bangers have cars and have the ability to travel outside of their crime ridden neighborhoods.

 

They argued that the suburbs also have crime. Yes, it's true, but I don't think people in the suburbs have to worry about armed robberies, carjackings, and other violent crime as much as people living in the city.

The crime is no longer contained to the "certain" neighborhoods.  The street thugs are traveling out to more target rich environments.  I do think that people in the suburbs have to worry about car jacking, armed robbery and rape, but that is because the perpetrators are traveling from the traditional high-crime neighborhoods to prey upon sunurbanites.

 

People in North East Illinois are really screwed.  Chicago is something like a $500 billion economy, but Rahm Emanuel won't invest in law enforcement and bordering communities have limited resources to deal with the crime.  The bordering towns don't have the money to hire hundreds of cops, if they start to raise taxes in order to pay for more police, the residents just leave and move further west or leave Illinois altogether.  The justice system is totally dysfunctional, turning dangerous felons back out on the street after short stays in jail.

 

The whole region is copying what happened in Detroit.  We're following in Detroit's footsteps, the same exact things are happening here that happened in the Detroit area 20 years ago.

Thanks, Lil' Debbie! 


You will not 'rise to the occasion', you will default to your level of training - plan accordingly.

Despite their rallying around us at election time, honoring only 8 hours of Illinois' 40+ hour law enforcement class towards a 16 hour requirement shows the contempt that our elected officials hold us in.

Just shows once again that criminals, even without guns, are dangerous, while law abiding citizens deprived of guns are vulnerable.

65-year-old man shot on bus in Austin, adding to violent day on CTA

A 65-year-old man was shot on a CTA bus Saturday evening in the West Side Austin neighborhood, adding to a violent day on the city’s public transportation system.

He was on the bus just after 6 p.m. when he heard gunshots and felt pain in the 5600 block of West Division, according to Chicago Police.

The man got off the bus and was walking home when he realized he was bleeding, police said. He went to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park, and was transferred to Stroger Hospital when his gunshot wound was found.

No one was in custody as Area North detectives investigated.

The shooting was the latest in a handful of violent incidents on or near CTA property this weekend.

Just five minutes after the shooting on the bus in Austin, a man was grazed by a bullet in the right eye and hand while riding a CTA Green Line train on the South Side. The shooting happened when a fight broke out and someone opened fire on the moving train.

Saturday afternoon, a man was shot to death at a bus stop near a the CTA’s 69th Street Red Line station in the South Side Englewood neighborhood. During an ensuing argument, a person pulled out a gun and shot the man in his chest.

In July, a Chicago Sun-Times analysis of CTA and police data from the beginning of 2015 through mid-April 2017 found serious crime on the CTA in the city went up 16 percent in 2016. More than 90 percent of those serious crimes went unsolved.

Another Sun-Times investigation in November found reports of “non-index” crime — those regarded as less severe than “index” crimes such as murder, robbery and rape — on the CTA in Chicago were on pace in 2017 to surpass each of the previous two years. That included the number of cases of “criminal sexual abuse” such as “inappropriate touching” and “sexual harassment without physical contact.”

There's a brown line stop at the Thompson Center so I'm going to count this.

 

https://www.google.c...-story,amp.html

 

 

A high-ranking Chicago police officer died after he was shot Tuesday afternoon while assisting a tactical team responding to a robbery at the Thompson Center, sources said.

The officer, identified as a commander, was shot a little before 2 p.m., according to chief Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. The officer was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and has died, sources said.

Guglielmi would not confirm the death or identify the officer

This story must be a lie as it's against the law to carry a firearm on CTA property.

During the winter I saw some teen come up with a inventive use for the conductor's booth; leaning out of the departing train to snatch a bag from behind. Problem was the target had a stronger grip despite being taken by surprise so the thief had to give it up or risk losing a arm. Happened so quick no one seemed to notice at all, just something to be aware of. Only a matter of time before such a trick is used to seriously harm someone.

It is statistically way more more dangerous to be on the CTA than in a Waffle House or in a school, but it is amazing how the anti-gun politicians (with the help of their friends in the media) keep the public's attention focused on the latter.

Evidently felons who assault people on and around the CTA serve only short sentences.

Red Line: "Vicious" Attack On Senior Citizen Has Cops Asking For Help; Victim May Lose Eyesight

Chicago cops are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who “viciously” attacked a senior citizen aboard a North Side Red Line train yesterday. The woman may lose her eyesight as a result of the attack, CPD Chief Communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi said. Images of the suspect, released by CPD on Friday afternoon, are shared throughout this report.

Absolutely horrible! They did catch him at least.
