More Chicago lunacy

State money is involved. I sure hope people will pocket the check, and be smart about it and not show up to be slaughtered by gangbangers.

They did something similar here but more directed at the homeless. Didn’t work out too good though. The homeless called them spies for the police so they wouldn’t talk to them.

Just for the mental rememberance (Ah, the good bad old days in New York City)

Crime, high jobless rate, pollution, ‘dirty water dogs’ frankfurters to you other 49 stater’s)
Chain snatching, assaults on the subway, strong arm assaults and lo and behold here come these ‘kids’
THE GUARDIAN ANGELS led by Curtis Sliwa (and his wife Lisa). Most of them had Martial Arts training of some sort, All of them were ‘street fighters w/ Angel wings’. You saw criminals melt away when they saw one of these guys in their car. Red Berets, White tees and serious attitudes! FABULOUS! did more for us
basement riders than a million transit cops. There was routinely articles in the NY Post of some perp being carried out of the tunnels, leg broken, face bloodied (this is where I get 'If it bleeds it read from)
Then you had bernie getz but that one alerted us to the fact that criminals were using strap hangers as pin cushions!
Point being we need to get involved before we lose total control over the Skells…and you can add whomever you wish to the skells list…

I wonder what Curtis Sliwa would say about this?

The question is was he impersonating a “Peacekeeper” or was this one of the people actually employed as one?

I suspect that impersonating a “Peacekeeper” does not carry the same penalties as impersonating a police officer so it would be a good disguise for a violent criminal to help keep their victims guards down. But given Chicago’s record it wouldn’t surprise me if they were hiring recently released violent criminals to keep the peace. Can see how that would make more sense to them than actually funding and supporting some real police:/

You seem unfamiliar with the concept of restorative justice. Maybe one criminal disappointed, lets keep at it, and trust a thousand more criminals, and expect a different result.

thing is… in too many places should you actually do such things now…

YOU are the one the DA goes after… need to get rid of such DA’s… FIRST…

over time the law has gradually changed to punish citizens over criminals…

perhaps the bleeding heart libs types created this… ???

our perhaps LEO’s and legal system was doing too good job???

news reporting got too NICE and failed to tell some stories or hide em back page???

and so the public became overly sheltered…

and never understood what the real world can be like???

IMHO to many vets avoid telling stories of what they went through…

cause it upsets family and friends… and that is probably the worst thing you can do…

IMHO telling them does 2 things one it helps them better understand why you are the way you are…

and two it tells them what the REAL world is like!

course that’s just my opinion…

I was a NYC Transit cop when I first got into law enforcement. I definitely remember the Guardian Angels and their presence did make a difference. There was a lot of chain snatchers, pick pockets and assaults going on in those days and the subway system was the perfect place for that.

Johnnyq-ninety,
In my opinion Sir being a Transit Police Officer in NYC (@ anytime) that took an extremely large pair of ‘Cohones’ Your radio’s were under powered, the reception w/ dispatch sucked…back-up was well…God Bless you Brother. I am happy you survived that job.

If you know any thing about the Wild West, lawmen and criminals went from one side of the law to the other quite often. Be a lawman in one town, get fired and go rob a train the next day/week.

This reminds me of an old joke.
What do Brazilians call a Brazil Nut?
They call it a nut! LOL

What do you call a shooting in Chicago? Monday, Tuesday…………
In Chicago it’s not lunacy, it’s normal!
They wake up, thinking, how can we beat yesterday’s record?
