- Some day SCC, I hope to be as all knowing as you, the Great OZ of the CPD, so I can jump to conclusions as to what someone may or may not have said or done.
Well, keep working at it. It takes a lot of work to jump to our own conclusions - you have to be educated, have a healthy distrust of the powers that be, be willing to think for yourself and not swallow every press release by the City, the Department and political suckhole that comes down the pike.
- Instead of bashing him, why don't you give the guy credit for working on a Saturday? Most Alderman don't work any day of the week and this guy is putting in time on a Saturday.
Working a Saturday? We work Saturdays all the time - five out of every seven. We're pretty sure Tunney wasn't working as an aldercreature on a Saturday.
- No doubt you would have been more pleased if the Alderman had been shot so you could turn the incident into another pro gun rant. Not that I believe in the gun ban, you just become tiresome at times...but it's your blog now,isn't it?
Had to take the low road, didn't you? We don't recall ever saying we wished aldercreature Tunney dead, shot, maimed or harmed. We wouldn't have lost any sleep over it one way or the other, but wishing particular harm on anyone isn't a habit of ours. We certainly would have joined in the celebrations if one of the offenders had been shot, but that didn't happen. And thanks for noticing it's our blog.
The second comment from our newest troll, fillmoreranger:
- appears the situation worked out just fine WITHOUT him discharging a firearm! No one injured, no proceeds taken, bad guys behind bars... whats wrong with that? You gun nuts never cease to amaze me... you take a situation that worked out just fine and ask "well where was his gun?" WHO CARES! Imagine if he had gotten off a round, it misses the intended target (which Im sure it would being I cant see the rainbow coalition doing much target practice) goes through the window at Clarkes restaurant and hits an innocent person... now what? This is a perfect situation that shows how guns and the gun nuts are out of control! Guns are not the answer!
No one injured because the offenders (who outnumbered the aldercreature 5 to 1) chose not to injure anyone; property lost and recovered was one empty wallet, and we haven't seen if these kids went to the Audy home or were released to their parents, but we doubt they spent much time behind bars.
People who refuse to be victims can prevent more crime than those who acquiesce to predators. If the offenders had any question that someone was armed, this wouldn't even have happened. As it is, the punks know the odds are in their favor, especially in the boystown area - the place is crawling with victims.
Every single state that has concealed carry or will issue permits has experienced a drop off in crime. Every one. And every place that restricts guns see a massive upsurge in attacks. This isn't a US phenomenon - it's international. In Australia, assaults and property crime skyrocketed following a gun ban. England? Same thing and they are currently trying to outlaw knives because of the tremendous up-tick of stabbings.
You claim guns are not the answer? You're not asking the right questions.
