Any cop who is doing his best to uphold the laws, follow orders AND respect citizens' rights using politeness rather than intimidation has my wholehearted support.

The smaller percentage of "bad" cops who break laws, disregard their oaths and escalate situations, sometimes to the point of killing innocent people while performing their duties, erode the public trust and hurt their fellow officers.

Sucks that you try to do your best and some people can hate you because you are in a uniform. It shouldn't be that way.

I was confused about this whole thing since I don't think what you said was offensive at all. You shouldn't need to walk on eggshells around here. At TCG, you should consider our house your house and be comfortable enough to bitch within our walls.

I'm sure you have to deal with enough shit when on the job, so you should be able to relax here.

Yea, disregard Gladiator, to be polite, he's the one person on this board (or one of the few anyway), on the "left" side of things in any argument (see the other section where politiks is discussed for reference).

Go Fuck Yourself.

Here is a great idea you can do to all the people that lost family because of gang and drug violence. Show them how meaningless and insignificant their loved ones are. They donít deserve to be heard.

My comment was directed at Father Phleger and his unlawful takeover and shutting down of the Dan Ryan. What does that have to do with gang and drug violence?

In any case, it was in jest, which obviously went right over your head.

They could set up tents and live on the Dan Ryan for a year, nothing will change. It's a waste of time. No policy/law can be set up that would rid Chicago of shootings and gang violence. It needs to start with the creation of these shit heads. Shit heads breed more shit heads.

If people want to be heard, infringing upon the rights of others isn't going to generate a lot of sympathy for the cause. If standing in the street is the best idea they can come up with, they're fucked anyway.

Kind of hard to feel sorry for people who spend their lives disrupting other people's, causing chaos, and shouting "fuck the police" every chance they get... This has been brought up numerous times.

Start taking responsibility for yourselves and your community. These people with the loudest voices and causing the most chaos have done absolutely nothing for anyone else but themselves in their entire lives. Who's stopping you from being a decent human being and changing it from within?

And then complain why the POHLEECE "aren't doing anything" to curb gang violence and why they didn't protect poor baby Laquantishia from stray bullets.

Careful, we've got a badass on this forum.

Not sure anyone is disregarding loves ones, stop making this out to be more than it is. People are protesting violence and gun violence, etc. Yet, are aggressive in their protests, resisting police and ignoring their requests to stay off of all of the lanes of the highway.

So, they want to be heard, but, are breaking multiple laws at the same time. Does that sound like a group that should be listened to?

Gang violence has always been a problem. For every single officer, there are probably 10 or more gang members in the city of Chicago. How the fuck are they supposed to stop gang violence being so far outnumbered? There are certain areas of Chicago cops dare not venture due to the hatred of our boys in blue and the carelessness of gang members.

If laws were never broken women wouldn't be voting and black people would still be sitting in the back of the bus and getting their food from the back of the restaurant. Not saying I agree with the violence. But if that same protest went through the south side of chicago peacefully the media wouldn't even cover it and their message wouldn't get very far. Sad state of affairs we are in today in that regard and the media and how people consume it. We wouldn't even be talking about this protest if it wasn't on a highway the way we are.

The media would cover the protest regardless of where they staged it. This group tried to shut down the Dan Ryan because the views would be higher than if they picketed city hall.

Remember, it's only their cause that matters (to them). Inconveniencing commuters means nothing. Dinners can be reheated, right.

So they protested.... What exactly do they want done that hasn't already been done? Mo police? But fuck the police. Mo money for schools? But the school systems continue to decline as more money is put into them. Mo laws? But they don't obey the laws that are already on the books.

The only thing that HASN'T been done is the parents in those inner cities actually being parents and raising their kids. Not letting them do whatever they want and eventually turning into little shithead gang members.

The protest was a success if all of you are still talking about it after the fact. I dont get mad at the one asshole that slammed on his brakes, causing a chain of events that caused traffic to slow down for no reason on some random Tuesday.

Did I totally miss the post where someone posted how gun violence changed in the days since that can be attributed to the march? Making it a success?

Don't confuse talk of tactics used in the protest as a measuring stick for the success of the cause it was meant to bring attention to. It actually distracts from the cause.

You are still talking about it almost 4 days later. Stop giving them what they want.

I am not talking about the march. I am talking about your reasoning for calling it a success.


Maybe go back and re-read my post. lol

True, but as another member quoted an article about freedom of speech (for police officers off duty) we really dont have "that" privlage. The minute I posted here that im on the job pretty much strips away my right to say something that could negatively reflect our agency. There have been way too many cops suspended and fired for what they post on social media. Granted, ive never said who I am or directly who I work for, but that would be simple for a division thats devoted to investigating us, to figure out.

They want word out of what they are doing. You guys are still saying the word. But it was a failure.

IMO, the discussions we have, where I learn a lot, are more important than the extra views the discussion brings. I go away from a thread like this with a better comprehension of the situation.

I'm not against people protesting. Just against annoying protesting for extra views.
