13 Chicago cops hurt amid looting, over 100 arrests

At one point early Monday, shots were fired at police and officers returned fire

CHICAGO — More than 100 people were arrested Monday following a night of looting and unrest that left 13 officers injured and caused damage in the city's upscale Magnificent Mile shopping district and other parts of the city, authorities said.

Police Superintendent David Brown said it “was not an organized protest” but instead “an incident of pure criminality” that began following the shooting of a person by police the previous day in the city's Englewood neighborhood. At one point early Monday, shots were fired at police and officers returned fire. Brown said a heavy police presence is expected in the downtown area until further notice.

“This was straight up, felony criminal conduct,” said Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. "This was an assault on our city.”

Those arrested were expected to face charges including looting, disorderly conduct, battery against police. Lightfoot said that the city has activated a neighborhood protection program that will be in place “for foreseeable days until we know our neighborhoods are safe.”

No officers were injured in the shooting, police spokesman Tom Ahern said on Twitter. Many of the businesses that were ransacked had recently opened after Chicago protests of George Floyd's May 25 death in Minneapolis devolved into chaos.

The unrest began shortly after midnight and anti-police graffiti was seen in the area of the Magnificent Mile, which is one of Chicago’s most-visited tourist attractions. Hours earlier, dozens of people had faced off with police after officers shot and wounded a person Sunday in the Englewood neighborhood, located about 10 miles (16 kilometers) away.

Brown said after a crowd dissipated following that shooting “we are monitoring social media and we come across a post of a caravan of cars being prompted to go to our downtown and loot.”

Along the Magnificent Mile, people were seen going in and out of stores carrying shopping bags full of merchandise as well as at a bank, the Chicago Tribune reported, and as the crowd grew vehicles dropped off more people in the area. On streets throughout the downtown area, empty cash drawers from stores were strewn about and ATMs were ripped open.

Stores miles from downtown were also ransacked, with parking lots littered with glass and items from inside the stores. Clothes hangers and boxes that once contained television sets and other electronics were seen — evidence that thieves had taken racks of clothes and removed them from the hangers.

“This was obviously very orchestrated,” the Rev. Michael Pfleger, a prominent Roman Catholic priest and activist on the city’s South Side, told WBBM-TV as cameras panned the downtown area.

One officer was seen slumped against a building, several arrests were made and a rock was thrown at a police vehicle, the newspaper said. Police worked early Monday to disperse the crowds.

There was a large police presence Monday morning outside an Apple store located north of Chicago’s downtown area. Blocks away, debris was strewn in parking lots in front of a Best Buy and a large liquor store.

Train and bus service into downtown was temporarily suspended at the request of public safety officials, the Chicago Transit Authority said on Twitter. Bridges over the Chicago River were lifted, preventing travel to and from the downtown area, and Illinois State Police blocked some expressway ramps into downtown. Access was being restored later Monday morning.

Chicago and its suburbs, like many other cities, saw unrest following the death of Floyd. Chicago’s central business district and its commercial areas were shut down for several days after violence erupted and stores were damaged in the wake of marches protesting Floyd's death. Floyd, a Black man who was handcuffed, died after a white officer pressed his knee against Floyd’s neck for nearly eight minutes as Floyd said he couldn’t breathe.

In the Sunday shooting in Englewood, police said in a statement that they responded about 2:30 p.m. Sunday to a call about a person with a gun and tried to confront someone matching his description in an alley. He fled from officers on foot and shot at officers, police said.

Officers returned fire, wounding him, and a gun was recovered, police said. He was taken to a hospital for treatment and three officers involved also were taken to a hospital for observation, the statement said.

More than an hour after the shooting, police and witnesses said a crowd faced off with police after someone reportedly told people that police had shot and wounded a child. That crowd eventually dispersed.

Why even arrest them if they are just gonna catch and release them for the most part ?
Seems like it just puts more folks at risk...all that arrest tension and such.
Just " let it go "....
Being a bit sarcastic but you see what I am saying.
Otherwise...it is just a never ending run on story about the same stuff over and over and over.

Well, if they won't arrest them because they just get released anyway, perhaps they should start firing the rubber bullets at the perps and leave them lying on the ground. Keep firing the rubber bullets. Eventually they will get the message that it will cost them pain to be stupid. Stupid should hurt.

Good! Let's maximize the damage as fast as possible. At some point the people might actually figure out who's causing all their pain. Apparently they still don't believe its their political leaders....yet!

I'm convinced the whole education system is all about money.
One thing is certain........ it's not about education.
Amazingly they can indoctrinate but not educate.

Driver intentionally ran over woman in River North, police say
August 12, 2020 CWBChicago Near North, River North

Edgar Roman is accused of striking the two women as they stood on the corner of State and Hubbard. | CPD; Google

An Albany Park man is facing murder and attempted murder charges for allegedly striking two women with his SUV in River North on Monday night — and then intentionally running over one of them again.

Police arrested Edgar Roman, age 25, at the 17th District (Albany Park) police station when he tried to report his heavily damaged vehicle stolen later that night, according to a CPD report.

Zoraleigh Ryan, a 55-year-old grandmother from Chandler, Arizona, and her 20-year-old daughter, were struck by a silver SUV as they waited to cross the intersection of State and Hubbard streets around 10:30 p.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The driver got out of the SUV, saw the women on the ground, and then circled back around to run over Ryan again, police reported. She was dragged for a half-block and was later pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Ryan’s daughter, who also lists an Arizona address, was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition.

Cops pursued the truck through River North until it rammed several barricades near the Merchandise Mart, causing its hood to fly off. Roman managed to speed away from officers, but cops found the rest of his truck abandoned on a side street near Montrose and the Kennedy Expressway around 11:30 p.m., according to police.

A short time later, Roman walked into the Albany Park police station to report his truck stolen, according to CPD’s incident report. He was arrested.

Prosecutors charged Roman with first-degree murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, leaving the scene of an accident, and filing a false report. He is due in bond court on Wednesday.

Ald. Brian Hopkins (2nd) told the Sun-Times he believes the hit-and-run is connected to the widespread looting that decimated downtown retail corridors this week.

“We have reason to believe that this vehicle was involved in looting,” the paper quoted Hopkins as saying. “Detectives have not made that determination yet. But, there’s some witness statements that suggest it.”

“The looters have no regard for the safety of others. And the driver of this vehicle was driving in a manner consistent with that. … I believe that, because this vehicle was driving in such a reckless manner downtown, that it was connected to the looting incidents.”

CPD records show Roman was charged with DUI in February 2018 and with criminal damage to property near the intersection of State and Hubbard in May 2019. The details of those cases and their court outcomes were not immediately available this morning.

As Chicago Nears Panic, Lightfoot’s Partisan Blather On National Television Only Hurts - Wirepoints
August 13, 2020
1


By: Mark Glennon*
From Hyde Park to the Gold Coast to Edgewater, residents across the city are adjusting their daily routines out of fear. They’re avoiding neighborhood walks after 6:00 p.m. At night, they don’t stand too close to their windows or dare to enjoy their outdoor balconies or terraces. Their children, who will likely be homebound for the remainder of the year, are forced to play indoors because local parks and playgrounds have been inhabited with litter, vandalism, and crime,” This is not a way to live, and I can’t fault homeowners when they tell me they’re considering leaving Chicago.
That’s from an open letter sent Wednesday by the president of Sudler, one of the biggest property management companies in Chicago, to Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
He’s hardly alone. A chorus of similar voices arose after Sunday night’s riots from a broad sector of Chicagoans. A few examples:
• “The fear is spreading, the anxiety is spreading and we’re seeing individuals who used to see the downtown areas, like the crown jewel of our city, now wanting to leave…and stores who were just starting to get past the main riots and looting thinking that they may not stay on the Magnificent Mile anymore,” said Alderman Ray Lopez.
• “The streets are empty and this time of year hotels would be full and the streets would be full. The rioting and violence have stopped people from coming downtown,” a Chicago business owner told “America’s Newsroom.”
• “It has to stop,” Ashley Jones, a Gold Coast resident, said. “It has to come from the highest level up top. We can’t have our city looking like this.”
• The head of Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police wrote to U.S. Attorney John Lausch and Attorney General William Barr Wednesday, calling on federal officials to intervene, saying Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx applies a “presumption of dismissal” for charges related to looting.
Black Chicagoans are perhaps more fed up than anybody. Englewood residents told Black Lives Matter members to get lost when they tried to stage a protest there and, nationally, a whopping 81% of black Americans don’t want less police presence, which BLM wants.
Maybe the city got at least got some comfort Monday when Lightfoot finally showed no sympathy for the rioters and called for tougher prosecutions.
But a different Lightfoot went on national television Wednesday, resorting to partisan blather that was entirely unresponsive to people’s fears and against the city’s interest.
On MSNBC, she was shown a clip of President Trump’s reaction to the riots, which was uncharacteristically, restrained, polite and not non-accusatory. He said Chicago had the resources to handle its own problems – which is exactly what Lightfoot has often said – and he added,
I’m offering all available federal support requested to stop the violence and arrest the criminals. We have to be asked by the governors or the mayors, and we’ll be there very rapidly. It’s ready, willing and able. We’re all ready, willing and able to go these jurisdictions and take care of them. We’ll do them very quickly.
That, too, is consistent with what Lightfoot has always said about federal aid.
But what was her response to Trump’s new tone and message?
“You know, those are the words of somebody who doesn’t understand the first thing about local policing, doesn’t understand the first thing about building authentic relationships with members of the community,” she said.
She went on to criticize Trump’s handling of Portland and blamed lack of tougher federal gun control measures for Chicago’s problems. Portland and guns had nothing to do with Sunday’s riots or Trump’s offer.
What good does a response like that do for the Chicago? The city desperately needs federal money to make ends meet, as Lightfoot herself has said. So does the State of Illinois and Chicago Public Schools, whose new budget assumes it will get a whopping $343 million in new federal help.
With an attitude like Lightfoot’s in response to an offer for help, it should be no surprise that Congress was unable to agree on any federal relief package for states and cities. Many GOP Senators, whose votes are needed for an aid package, represent states still in reasonably good shape and they are loath to asking their taxpayers bail out places like Chicago. Congress has now gone on recess until after Labor Day.
Lightfoot added not a single comment that might be constructive towards resolving the impasse. The relevant potion of her interview is below.

Chicagoans terrified about the city’s future will take no solace hearing their mayor put national politics over their interests.
That’s particularly true of business owners who also worry about workers who commute into Chicago. That letter from Sudler’s president to Lightfoot also said this:
Staff have fearfully traveled through downtown in the middle of looting sprees just to report to their shifts on time. They’ve dragged dumpsters in front of doorways as additional blockades, rehearsed and implemented lockdown procedures, called 911 on repeat, and for some, have been face-to-face with criminals threatening violence.
Facing that, and hearing Lightfoot on MSNBC, how could anybody choose to work or live in Chicago?
The next big problem may be Saturday when radicals plan to shut down the Dan Ryan Expressway at Noon. If they succeed, will Lightfoot again blame Portland, federal gun laws and Trump?

Chicago looters attacked Ronald McDonald House with sick children inside, charity says


The Ronald McDonald House in Chicago was vandalized during looting early Monday morning while families and their sick children huddled inside, the charity said Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2020. (screengrab via CBS Chicago) more >

By Jessica Chasmar - The Washington Times - Wednesday, August 12, 2020
The Ronald McDonald House in Chicago was vandalized during looting early Monday morning while families and their sick children huddled inside, the charity said Tuesday.
The Ronald McDonald House in the Streeterville neighborhood of the city’s Near North Side provides support for sick children and their families while the child receives medical treatment at nearby Lurie Children’s Hospital.
The charity said more than 30 families and their sick children were sleeping inside when the looters, who had taken over downtown, ransacking stores and vandalizing properties, started attacking the building.

“[We were] very concerned there was a lot of activity right in front of the house, people making choices that could put them at risk and put our families at risk, so the staff was frightened,” Lisa Mitchell, of Ronald McDonald House Charities, told ABC 7 Chicago.
“They are already in a really, really difficult spot,” she said of the families. “Having this kind of additional stress and worry about getting to and from the hospital even though we are five blocks away because of safety concerns is just doubling the strain.”
The building was placed on lockdown during the commotion, CBS Chicago reported. Several windows on the front of the building were smashed, and the front door had to be boarded up. No damage was caused to the inside of the house and no one was injured.
The charity said it will remain open despite the potential dangers.
“We’re here for families at all times — whether there’s a pandemic or civil unrest, we need to make sure that we are here allowing families to get the rest they need while they have a child in the hospital seeking care, and so it’s so important that anything that might be going on outside, we maintain our care for families,” Ms. Mitchell said.

Chicago Hospital Trains Navy Doctors for Battle
CHICAGO — The patient had been shot on the streets of Chicago, but when Dr. Jared Bernard stood over his open body in the operating room, he could see that the single bullet had unleashed the same kind of massive infection inflicted by roadside bombs in Afghanistan.
Although the wounded man lay in a modern American hospital, saving his life would be no different than caring for a soldier wounded by a bomb exploding under a Humvee. That's why the Navy is sending its doctors, nurses and medics to Stroger Hospital, a Cook County facility that, in its own way, stands in the middle of a war zone.


Because the Navy doesn't have any trauma training facilities in the U.S., military medical teams can't get experience dealing with penetrating wounds, inserting IVs in emergencies and other techniques common to combat areas, said Bernard, a 37-year-old lieutenant commander who has been deployed to Afghanistan. He's a trauma surgeon at the Lovell Federal Heath Care Center in North Chicago, where the Navy teams work when they aren't at Stroger.
Launched this past spring, the program is one of two of its kind in the country. The other is at the Los Angeles County-University of South California Medical Center.
Navy doctors, nurses and medical corpsmen rotate through Stroger because its trauma unit is one of the busiest in the U.S., a result of the nearly constant gun violence in some troubled neighborhoods on Chicago's South and West sides.

Last year, Stroger treated nearly 600 gunshot victims, more than 260 people with stab wounds and almost 900 people injured in traffic collisions — all categories represented over the July 4 weekend when Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Dwight Koontz helped treat a man whose body was riddled with bullet holes.
After helping cut the man's clothes off, Koontz's chores included putting little EKG discs on all the bullet holes to help doctors quickly understand what they were up against — an exceedingly tough job given how tiny bullet wounds can be and how much blood can pour out of them.
"He had 15 holes in him," Koontz said of the man, one of dozens of gunshot victims rushed to Stroger during a particularly bloody weekend. "It took about two hours for us to get him stable enough to get him to surgery." The man survived, he said.
Working at Stroger gives medics a chance to help treat patients who have been shot in the chest, abdomen and pelvis — wounds that have become rare in combat zones because of body armor. Learning to treat those kinds of injuries is invaluable because bullets and shrapnel do occasionally find gaps in soldiers' Kevlar vests.
At the same time, the hospital staff gets to watch the work of military medics who have performed their jobs under enemy fire, to see the kind of decisiveness required when there is no doctor around and a single corpsman is the difference between life and death for a wounded Marine, soldier or sailor.
Stroger's reputation for treating gunshots is so strong that police officers have been known to insist on being taken there after being wounded. So there may be no better place to learn what happens after a piece of metal pierces a body and tumbles through the tissue, shredding everything in its path.
There are no IEDs exploding in Chicago, and Navy medical professionals seldom see wounds from small-caliber handguns. But there can be striking parallels between the two worlds.
"Land mines and IEDs ... and high-speed car crashes can cause similar types of injuries," said Dr. Faran Bokhari, the head of Stroger's trauma department who helped establish the partnership with the Navy. "So we need to do hemorrhage control here or there."
Back in the operating room, the infection inside the Chicago man rages. His organs are so swollen that it is impossible to close his body each time the doctors go in and cut away more dead tissue.
Three weeks have passed since he was shot. In that time, the infection has spread like a slow-motion version of an IED blast that hurls shrapnel, dirt and other nearby material into a soldier. The stool inside the bowels spills throughout the body, triggering a widespread infection and eroding blood vessels.
"From that standpoint, this is almost the exact same thing as the IED," Bernard said.
As with the bomb blasts, it is the infection from the gunshot, not the bullet itself, that often forces doctors to amputate limbs or large parts of them as the infection advances. The concern with this man is that he too might lose at least one of his legs.
"Because the infection goes down into the pelvis ... the only way to control it is to take his leg and part of his pelvis," Bernard said. "We need to clear all the dead tissue out."
For Bokhari, the man's treatment helps explain why he wanted the Navy to come to his hospital.
"What we do here with him," he said, "will be translatable to what they do on the front lines."

how? why? is this allowed to continue?

a country, a state, chock full of laws and jurisprudence and this is allowed to continue unabated...no one responds but the sheep and a few lawyers, God Bless them in this case...

and i'm not referring to this as if this is Brand New...in any way

this breed of wickedness takes more than just a lightfoot to blame, there are co-conspirators all around her, taking orders, giving orders, making stuff up...

kind of like the production crew for the Biden Kamala circus, the people who 'produce' the product to the point, a full blown alzheimers patient is made to look like a normal adult human being...

and those who write the script to tear apart America...traitors, the lot, all the way to the baggage handler and driver of the buss, complicit, because THEY KNOW who these people are and no amount of money should ever get you to "Dance With The Devil"

this is how evil exists, "good men accept the money and begin by servicing it"

Report: With Chicago police already stretched thin, Mayor Lightfoot stations over 100 cops outside home, bans protests on her block to protect herself



Even as police in Chicago are stretched to their limit, Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot has allegedly ordered a continuous heavy police presence outside her home in Logan Square and banned protests on her block to protect herself and her family.



The Chicago Tribune reported Thursday that the city has effectively banned all protests on Lightfoot's street, including peaceful ones, even as elsewhere in the city protests have been allowed to continue and openly supported by the mayor.



According to an email sent by the district's commander at the time, officers assigned to enforce the directive were instructed to tell protesters "that it is against the city code and state law to protest" and that they must "leave immediately."



After the warning is given, the street "should be locked down," the instructions added.



In order to carry out the orders, a large contingent of officers have been routinely stationed outside the home. Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara told the Chicago Sun-Times that as many as 140 officers have been assigned to the home at certain times.



One of Lightfoot's neighbors came up with the name "Fort Lori" to describe the scene.



"Maybe she should move into a high-rise downtown where you can put like 20 officers at the front of the building if need be," Catanzara suggested, adding, "I get the family safety, but you picked this job."



"What about all of the officers who are getting projectiles thrown at 'em, fireworks shot at 'em? It's the do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do mentality," he continued.



Catanzara is not the only one who has taken some offense at the action. The Tribune noted that the order, which siphons away police resources from other areas to protect the mayor's neighborhood has led to "some quiet grumbling" within the police department.

What else?



Lightfoot defended the move Thursday, telling reporters, "Given the threats that I have personally received. Given the threats to my home and my family, I'm gonna do everything to make sure that they are protected. I make no apologies whatsoever."



"We have a right in our home to live in peace," she added.



The mayor did not elaborate on the threats but said: "Suffice it to say that, every single day, there is something that pops up. There are specific threats to my person, to my wife and to our home."



She also denied the claim that "hundreds" of police were stationed near her home, but said that "sufficient resources" are assigned when a threat is established.



The order to ban protests near Lightfoot's home comes as violence and riots rage in the city and Chicago police officers are resigning or retiring in record numbers.

Well, we're in the Leftists' Comfort Zone.

The Little People have been "contained." Only a palace coup is going to solve this.

Which of the soon-to-be unemployed (for the Defund-The-Po-Po movement) cops is going to put a silver bullet in the head of this Beetlejuice thing?
