Your New G-8 Best Friend

Use as necessary.

UPDATE: Hint - it covers things.

ive worked a few of these so just fyi ..the picture shows electrical tape (i think) do not use electrical tape because it streches and loosens. also doesnt hold up as well. use black duct tape or athletic/ hockey tape to secure your gear to your body.

Why don't we use a few rolls and tape Rahm to the Picasso in the Dailey Center. He will have a bird's eye view of the G8/NATO bullshit we will have to deal with.

I agree with the guy who suggested we all get "McCarthy" name tags for the G8 fiasco. Or we could mix things up a bit and throw in some "Emanuel" and "Daley" name tags for comic relief.

OT - Mike Madigan sponsored Tim Degnan's son, an inexperienced lawyer, to become a judge of the Circuit Court. In doing so, 5 other more qualified candidates, including the incumbent judge were forced to drop out of the race. Welcome to the political sewer of Chicago.

Didn't you see what happened to the PO and Lt in Oakland because of tape? Of course, that's a city government at war with it's police dept.. Instead, ask the confrontational demonstrators if they wish to make a complaint on you and if they say yes demand identification so that you can refer them to IPRA for the 'investigation.' Tape on name tags is not a good idea and a proven loser in this current climate. Remember, everybody be hate'n on the Po-Po!

Duct tape is much better. Sgt's should use different colored tape on helmets so his/her squad can find them.

If youve worked a few of these then you should know what hes talking about... and scc, if you want to COVER SOMETHING you can find on the internet tape that is POWDER BLUE in color... It wont STAND OUT AS MUCH and will COVER UP the certain thing that you want COVERED UP.. wink wink nod nod. are you people getting it yet?? The black duct tape can be used for another certain thing that can be COVERED up for another item YOU WEAR on your body... please I hope to god some idiot realizes what im talking about. were gonna show up and some muscle head is gonna have a cup taped around his balls with powder blue duct tape and black electrical tape.. it wouldn't surprise me.

dont wear a nametag or star during these protests.. Not to conceal your name but it will get ripped off during the first 5 minutes of clashing with these people. Its a trophy for them to get that.. If you have to wear it for the bosses then do so but before going in and moving people remove your star and tag.. if you dont you will loose it.

Was watching the Clinton News Network (CNN) and saw a special about the group "Anonymous". They were able to get PO's personal info IE: addresses and such. We should be able to cover up our names and badges with tape if our department is not going to protect us or do something to disrupt this group. The bad thing is that all arrest reports and case reports are public knowledge. Then you have isolated incidents where the PO will actually be a victim such as Battery to PO. We're in for a long week. Like Sean Connery said in the Untouchables. Go home to your family after your tour. Everything else will fall into place. Meanwhile the department should be addressing these assholes.

RE no weapons to be used against the expected gentle and courteous rioters:

Also heard through the rumor mills at 35th st. that "nerf" has donated to the CPD academy 1,000 super soakers to be distributed along with the 1st issue Hello Kitty duct tape.

Shooting h20 at close range with a flourescent decked-out squirt gun can "hurt your eyes". Christy Webberrr will have the no-contract water trucks standing by for the expected multiple refills. A new general order will soon follow. Rahm likes this idea cause he remembers going to civil protests with his mamma followed by ballet matinees.

"It is DUCT TAPE of DUCK TAPE?

I think I have seen both."

It started out as tape that was primarily used to join and seal ductwork--thus "duct tape." However, with the explosion of new uses for it, through numerous repeated mispronunciations the name became "duck tape." One company took advantage of this widespread mispronunciation, and calls it's version of the familar gray tape, "Duck Tape" and uses a cartoon duck as a logo.
Aren't you glad you asked?

I am not going to risk my life protecting these rich elite scumfucks anymore. I say we all put on our uniforms that day but join in on the protests. I think I will. My partner seemed interested in it too.

Why is it our duty to hold back the hoards of people they've angered when nothing on their agenda is for the benefit of us or our families?

I say if we don't join them, we move the barricades aside and let the cowering fools defend themselves from the crowd.

I got into law enforcement because my grandmother was shot in the crossfire of two drug dealers battling it out as she walked home from the grocery store.
