A Chicago police officer is hospitalized in serious condition with a fractured skull, a victim of black mob violence.
The officer was responding to a call early Saturday morning when he found dozens of people in the street, creating mayhem. He immediately called for back up, but instead of waiting for reinforcements, went to the assistance of a woman under attack.
Some members of the mob turned on him: He was attacked by at least one person — struck on the head with the bat. “No one tried to help him or stop the attack,” said one Chicago police officer. “That happens a lot: Mob violence. No assistance. If anything, most of the people are either participating or encouraging the violence. ”
What the stories also do not report is more important, say two Chicago police officers. The crowd was black, also missing from all the news reports.
“Maybe the paper did not know,” said one of the officers. “Or maybe they did not think it was important to note that fact because it happens all the time. Or maybe, as usual, Chicago media does an awful job of reporting racial violence. Never reporting it because they think that would be racist.”
If the police on the beat are restrained from talking about the incident in public, the police blog Second City Cop is not. The blog marveled at the naivetee of the Chicago Tribune: “It’s not clear if the officer was hit on purpose or was accidentally while trying to break up the fight.”
On purpose or accidentally? We’re going to go out on a limb and say if someone is wandering around Englewood with a bat, at one in the morning, they’re not looking for Rahm’s Midnight Softball Leagues.
They’re looking to beat someone and it doesn’t matter who gets in the way. We charge people who shoot, maim and kill victims, regardless of who the intended target was.
Also missing from the story is context: “The story does not report that black mob violence against police in black neighborhoods is a regular and intense and dangerous situation,” said one of the officers. “That happens a lot. When we ride through the neighborhood, we are often greeted by black people pointing their index fingers at us as if they were shooting a gun. They shout: CCK. CCK. Chicago Cop Killer. Some have that tattooed on them.”
Some of the violence against police is on video: As were the black mob attacks on police that followed a police shooting earlier this year. Two officers were chasing a car of five suspected truck hijackers when they crashed. Four got away. One remained and was fighting with one officer, then advancing on another when he was shot and killed.
Soon after, a crowd gathered, with several people saying the black man was shot for no reason and the cops were killers. The mob grew to the hundreds, and soon they were yelling profanities at the police, complaining of police brutality. They also threw “bottles, bricks and rocks,” said the Chicago Tribune.
Jamal Moore, the dead man, had a long history of trouble with the law, including a 2006 arrest and conviction for armed robbery.
“Fuck the police,” said one protestor on a seven-minute video of the disturbance. “They can’t do shit if we start a riot right now.”
Several days after the riot, Revolution News reported that a flyer urging more violent action against the police was distributed in Chicago neighborhoods.
Jamaal had “put aside all of his youthful habits and was getting things together so he could take care of his 4-month-old son,” said Revolution News.
When Jamaal’s mother asked the police what was going on, one cop told her “Another n*gger dead.”
This, in a nutshell, is the racist and genocidal program these enforcers carry out for the system. The cops taunted the crowd with this shit and the people erupted with righteous anger right in the cops’ faces.
People were shouting, “We’re tired of this. We’re tired of them shooting down our kids.” And “fuck the police!” In the face of the guns and clubs, the people defiantly fought back.
Despite the dozens of cell phone cameras capturing the action, not one captured a recording of police using racial epithets.
Nevertheless, Revolution Newspaper said Moore was really a victim, not the violent predator police would have us believe he is.
“It is the workings of the capitalist-imperialist SYSTEM that produces killer cops and the mass incarceration of a whole generation of Black and Latino youth—over 2.4 million in prison,” said the paper. “We need a revolution to end once and for all the brutal, vicious oppression of Black people.”
People who depend on local TV and newspapers are largely ignorant of the violence and racial slurs directed at white police officers on a regular basis, they say.
“But no politician in Chicago will say anything about that, other than to say the people who were fighting with baseball bats need jobs, and that is why they are violent,” said one of the officers. “That is what happened last month at the Urban Violence Summit in Chicago with members of the Congressional Black Caucus.”
The summit, broadcast nationwide on CSPAN, featured little talk about violence, and lots of talk about racism and how unemployment are the real problems.
“People have no idea what is happening out there,” both cops agreed. “And how it is going from bad to worse.”
