"He Rita helps him to cheat on his hearing test so that he could be declared fit for dude. That's kind of a funny scene that there's a doctor Nicholas cage or Enders is in a booth and they're playing these tones and he's got these headphones on and Rita is standing behind the Doctor Who's administering the test and of course the doctor can't see her and she's raising a hand to tell Enders which hand to raise you know which side. You can't really hear it, but you can also, you can also clearly tell that Enders has PTSD. Yeah, yeah, he's really not quite ready psychologically to go back, but he just really wants to. And he summoned by major mallets, and that's Jason Isaac's character. We already spoke about the fun roles that Jason Isaacs has played in the past. And the major gifts Enders a new assignment, and that is to protect Navajo code talker private Ben yazi, who we already met. The assignment carries a promotion for Enders. To sergeant in a jazz go. Sergeant Pete ox Henderson who's played by Christian Slater also receives a parallel assignment and he's going to be protecting Charlie. Charlie whitehorse. So Enders and Henderson or ox are instructed by the major, and this is a controversial part of the movie and the story in general. And he tells them he doesn't tell them straight up to kill the code talkers at their captured, but he says, you must not under any circumstances allow one of these code talkers to fall into enemy hands. And he leaves it at that and Anders says, okay, I understand. And Anderson, I mean, Enders Enders is not really wild about the assignment. He just wants to go out and kill as many Japanese as possible, but he's feels like he's being made into a babysitter. So what do you think about this? And you want to comment upon the alleged kill order, Sean. I mean, it's kind of difficult to, this is.

"On all things crime. And Sergeant Pete. I remember a couple months ago we were taught months I mean, months and months ago, we were talking about Carjackings with you. And at that time you were kind of given us some advice about how to sort of, you know, keep your guard up and maybe even avoid being targeted. You're talking about. Don't leave your car running. Don't leave your car in the gas station and run inside stuff like that. But as things have progressed here, and we're now at this situation where we've got 201 month. I'm looking at it in a Chicago police officer. Another one was targeted This week. They took her car. They took her gun, and it just strikes me that I'm not sure anybody could prevent this kind of thing. If you're looking at the tactics that are happening right now. No, no, I mean it's virtually impossible if you're in your car and they get you why you're in your car and they point a gun at you. There's absolutely nothing you could do. Even if you're sitting there holding the gun, it's gonna be cook really, really dangerous. I think what the city has done eyes try to allocate The man power in order to prevent the car jackings by adding detectives to areas that specify in in this crime, which is really armed robbery. That, you know cards. It's an armed robbery. And in some cases, they're they're homicides. But the realistic problem is Nobody is is prosecuting. And I mean, I don't know if you noticed it, but I noticed that Kim Fox isn't hands and participated in in group discussions on how to stop. This hasn't talked to the alderman just stands there mute, so she is totally ineffective and her state's attorneys If they're following her lead, they're ineffective. So somehow she has to prosecute affect that I somebody sent me. Was a violent carjacker, who was a juvenile was finally a adjudicated and going to be tried as an adult. That was in February of 2019 That's almost two years ago. Your earlier guest and I listen to said that's one police report. 40 Wards Police department doesn't go by wars, It goes make district's Yeah, he was making the point that it's not a lot. Is. I think his point. Yeah. I mean, yeah. You're not gonna put a copper's in the district. I'm you know, there's so many things involved, and as you can see it spread all across the city. There's so many, um, avenues where these guys Jake, they hit and they strike and they're gone within 10 or 15 seconds, and it's always been said that you don't for police work. Is a copy happens to be in the right place at the wrong time for the criminal and and that's it because you don't know where a car jackings gonna happen. I suggested, you know, maybe use bait cars. But you know what? What area? You're gonna put him in the biggest areas that they're qualified. And I'm never one to Question police or challenge them. But my own personal opinion you should have done to him and deep Mahan and McDermott, who are chief of patrol and Stupid detectives, we have them organized their men. Come up with the plan and enforce it. I think that the first deputy we have now Carter is totally unprepared and totally not able to handle this kind of a job. I don't think he belongs where he's at. I just think that it's above you know, it's the Peter principle. He's waiting ahead of where he should be. All right. Let me Ryan, you want to jump in here and ask Sergeant Peter question. Go ahead. What are the things that has been mentioned is how it's not being prosecuted, especially the younger people if they even are caught, and we're seeing by the way 3 14 Year olds arrested today, according to CPD, but one of the things that the deputy superintendent said was this is happening everywhere so Regardless of the prosecution, it sounds as though at least according to him. New Orleans is up. Minneapolis is up, You know, I mean, is it because of prosecution across the country, or is there something else that play here? The only thing I want to mention there's I looked into that and real quick. Sergeant Pete is in Minneapolis is up above us. It's 500%. New Orleans is up 140%. But we're up 400% over the same period last year were definitely up there in the top of the list of the folks that have the city with the worst problem. I'll just say that Yes, it is up in many major cities. That's true, but go ahead into the question. Um, you know, he's 100% right, but a lot of these places. If you look at their state's attorney's Ah, lot of them are those liberal Democrats or Social Democrats. Those George Soros, people that got put no office That got you know, like the fox got a million or $2 million from sorrows and, you know, I understand. Um, the Dismay of the people that live in the city and the worry like the guy that said he just bought a new car, and he's worried. You know what? The kids in the car? I told a physical therapist yesterday. If somebody goes to Jack your car and your kids in the car, you tell them my kids in this car. And they'll either a let you take it because kidnapping There's a lot more serious than a car Jackie or number two. They'll move on. But now, Thirdly, we have the federal government. The U. S attorney is picking up the ball and going after and charging people with these crimes. Uh and I are going to prosecute. So You know, and you haven't popular show. Why don't you get Kim Foxx to combine and debate me? I mean, she's a lawyer, and I not see Mark. We will try to get Kim Foxx on. I think that that you know, you actually make a very good point. She didn't show up at that City Council meeting and neither that neither did. Timothy Evans is my understanding the head of the court, So I do think that their voices need to be heard, And it's not to criticize them. It's too Ask him to explain their policies. I know one of the concerns all along has been let's stop locking up young men for non violent crimes. I would argue that these Carjackings have gotten more and more violent. And you have people of all different political persuasions who are both very dear, very like they've been supportive. What can Fox is doing and those who have been critical of her are actually Together on this issue that this has to stop. It is not okay. This is reaching a crisis level. If it isn't there already. So I think you're right..

"Safety Portion of it. Carjackings front center in the city with a huge surge. We've been talking about that the son of the former Tribune sometimes columnist legendary Mike Royko. Sam Royko. He's one of those who said he had a car that was car jacked, and I know others stepped up there to Alderman Ray Lopez is part of the committee and thank you for stepping aside here just to talk to us for a little bit, Alderman. How's it going? Excuse me. Good afternoon. Feels like it feels like a long day. I bet. Um Hey, So what's What should we know? Because this is obviously that's all hands on deck. People recognize this is a crisis. This is a problem. Let's deal with it. What do you here and what are we gonna be doing? Right now. You know the committee is still going. We've had a number of elected officials Pickle. We've had people from police with sheriff, the state police, the Cook County state's attorney. All president on hand. But you know, the one thing that I think we're missing is the fact that the seemingly lack of urgency and addressing this crisis This latest And and very violent friend that has been happening throughout 2020. And now into 2021. The fact that we had over 1400 Carjackings Ah 100 almost 150 in 2021 alone Now we've only got 22 days into the year. And almost 150. People have been carjacked, and we're just now finally having a discussion on this is mind boggling to me. Yeah, but here we are. I get it. It's been. It's been on our radar for a long time. But I think people want really want to know what's gonna be done different from this point forward how we how we going after this? You know that Danny is exactly what concerns me an effect. You know, we don't really have a different strategy than what's already been in existence. You know, the superintendent said that we're going to have additional resource is a new city white team focusing on this and we're gonna work with her partners. We've been working with our partners in the county of the state in faith Attorney's office for years. That's not new and under direct questioning by me today, the police admitted that there are no additional resource is we're just going to ask our community engagement teams to actually include Carjacking in the list of things that they investigate. So there's not gonna be a major tactical pusher increase in resource is to address that, despite the hoopla on the press releases that they're going to put out there, and that should be very worrisome to all of us, because at the end of the day, we're not effectuating that there's any kind of Discipline or consequence to this car jackings, and we're seeing younger and younger people who think quite literally, This is just fun and games for them. Their board. They've seen plenty of other people know people who got done it and gotten away with it. Now they're all competing with each other to see who is going to do it next and where they're going to get away with it. That's what I hear. That's what I'm hearing now from multiple alderman. I saw all the wagons back. Talk about it. Alderman Smith was on our show, Michelle Smith, both both of them, saying, Look, there are consequences. There's the sense that you could do it and get away with it and do it again and do it again. Even with Sergeant Pete was telling us about someone who had 12 Carjackings and really still was kind of doing it without much consequence. Or that there's no sort of punishment. I mean, what? How do you How do you What do you make me think it? I don't even think it's that there's a sense of that's fact. There is no consequence for people right now doing crimes in the city and in the county. We've seen Ah lot of effort to tilt the balance of justice towards the criminal and not the victim, and we continue to see that now. Even as we're discussing this, the state's attorney and the the the state's attorney's office said that if you are first time a juvenile offender which many of these are and these vehicular hijacking We're not recommending bond or electronic monitoring. They send you home. It's a slap on the wrist. And if you get a slap on the wrist, produce something dangerous. You're going to continue doing it. You are reinforcing that there's no consequence. And Dead, not create justice That creates very much an unsafe environment that we continue to see unfold throughout all of our communities and This has been going on since midsummer. I myself had three individuals jump out in front of my car when I was leaving one night trying to steal my car for me back then that was, you know, the very beginning where it was kind of like a Westside Southside thing. Now it has evolved to where it's not just about stealing a car. It's about like joy riding and thinking that you could get away with it and Sadly there, right? And I would say that Naperville, Aurora, the Western burbs, Elmhurst. They've They've all seen Carjackings on the rise to with city. It's clearly a real problem when you see this sort of an increase one of the things Alderman Smith talked about. And I've seen this in the Tribune and other places, too. Is that in 2016? They change the law so that if your juvenile you get caught Taking a car that you don't get charged as an adult, and they tracked it in the Tribune and showed that there has been an increase since that, so that indicating that the punishment does serve as a deterrent and that when the world kind of gets out that you're not going to really cavity problems or serve much of punishment at all, uh, that that leads to an increase here. Would you agree with that? Do you think that 2016 laws should be changed? I think it absolutely should be changed because I think that same law also says that you are considered Minor or juvenile until the age of 21. So you have 18 1920 21 year old 20 year old. Excuse me who are getting juvenile sentences, even though they're technically an adult, for all intents and purposes. Mm. And yes, there's always On equal and opposite reaction to everything we do. It's true in the universe. It's true in the law, and if you weaken things Crime will fill the void. And it's filling the void now because it continue to see this hilt towards the criminal's rights and killed tilting towards criminality that they're exploiting to the fullest at this point. Holder Lopez. I don't want to say I mean, I hope that you and other folks like you..

"Call us even text us. Sergeant Pete. I'm happy You joined the show today. We did have this conversation yesterday with Alderman Michele Smith, speaking that the rising Carjackings last year it's it's still It's not leveling off this year. We're still seeing this. Big spike in Carjackings, both in the city and in the suburbs. You look it's particularly the Western suburbs, places like Naperville, Rara. Even Elmhurst have cited an increase in Carjackings, and it seems like there's no way of stopping them. I just I'd love to get your thoughts about what it is. We're seeing here. What? How do you read? What's going on here? What's happening? Well, yeah, For example, there's a young man got arrested. He's 19 been arrested 35 times from anything from Carjacking, possession of drugs to solicitation for murder to murder, and he was out on bond and his most recent arrest was, you know, possession of a stolen car and drugs. And finally, a judge says that's enough and said abandoned $50,000. He was arrested. How many times did you say How many times 35 tax for violent crimes 35 times from a juvenile to adults? And and, you know, the judges just kept letting them go on with letting him go and low binds. And when you put low bonds for solicitation, murder murder, that there's something inherently wrong with the system and Don't think this I think this guy's a perfect example. Why? No bail doesn't work. And that's a guy like this is way New York and L a changed their systems. Um, I just think it's a bad idea. And car jackings were over 120 already this year and we're not even through a month of January. Mm. One of the things that all diminished. Alderman Smith pointed out yesterday is that there was a change in the law in 2016 that made it so that juveniles didn't have to face adult sort of charges. Four Carjackings basically, and she linked it back to that law That said that that's why we're seeing somebody 14 and 15 year olds who are doing it. Her view is getting a slap on the wrist and then Back out there again. This case that you just talked about seems to speak directly to that guy. 35 times. That doesn't seem right. You seem what How many chances do you get? Most of these things are on robberies. You know, we re using the term car jackings, but they're actually armed robberies and you see the skins. They steal a car, and then they drive to another place, steal another car. And then these cars that are found after they've been used for the committing of other crimes like Dr Baez and things like that. Then I saw in the news. There was an article today about letting people are a lot of people are buying guns. Listen, you know, I was in the army two years and I was in the police department 38 years. Be buying a gun. It makes it more dangerous for you. Because if you're not trained or don't have an idea on how to use it, you're presenting a big danger to yourself because they might shoot you. And take your gun and put another gun on the street. So in the old days, you know, and I hate to say this, you would have a cast force or you could use bait cars. Or you could do things like that to try to curb this because they're on Lakeview there in room Wicker Park there in the gold coast there in Brownsville. You just got to pick a spot where the most of them were. Most of them happened and try to set these kids up. And just because they're 14 or 15 years old, Like the porter Fire, Luke Retired Fire lieutenant was killed off 15 year old committing murder is just as bad as a 30 year old commit murder murder's murder. Huh? Just looking at the graph here the recent statistics for Carjacking last year we know it was a problem. They're saying January was even worse than we've seen horrible the past year indicated this trend. It is not stopping. No, it's 135% up over last year, and now you've got over 120 by on January 20th. You've got 120 something. So I mean here. Is that what you doing? Six a day. Mm. We had. We have questions 773 with the younger kids. Are they doing this to be part of a gang initiation? Do you think that's part of it? Every alderman Smith said. It might be some thrill seekers some just not getting any consequences. Is it part of a gang initiation? Do you think for these younger kids to go ahead and do this? No, I believe that he's the gang leaders. They're smart enough to have young kids. Do it. Go out, get the cars. And then give them to them and you know, and they pay him and then they can use these gap cars for other crimes. We can't coddle these 15 and 16 year olds that are running around with guns and shooting at people. I mean, it's just you can't do it and there has to be there has to be some reason. Reasoning. Be a setting bands for these. You know if you're caught 45 times, you know, keep getting out on Bannen, Bannen. Violent Get put your electronic monitoring. You know, none of that stuff is working. And people getting killed. It's it's not, You know, It's not just a lesser crime because they're 15 and 16 years old. It's easy for them because they know all what's what source again. And maybe I'm a juvenile. You know, those slap my wrist there wanting to send me to a juvenile jail. You know, I hesitate to even ask you for advice about trying to prevent this. And I do see this in the news sometimes. Well, here's you know, here's a police sergeant or police. So expert telling you what you conducive, try to prevent it because I just feel like maybe that makes victims feel like there's something they could have done it in. So many of these cases. I'm reading the facts. I'm looking at the details. I don't know what they could have done. Someone comes up to your car with a gun in your window and Tells you to get out. They want your car. I don't know what you do back even last year when you and I were talking. It seemed to be more of a crime of opportunity. Where you left the car running. You're at the gas station You ran in to go get something. And they took your car. But these latest ones in the last few months seemed to be more likely to involve a weapon. My view my perspective and more likely to potentially even turn violent. You can't eat a sandwich at a Wendy's. You can't go to Walgreen's. The best thing you could do is not leave your car running, but unfortunately they're stealing high end cars. They for whatever reason, they're going after I m cars. Jeeps of probably the mom the most likely to be stolen. It's just, you know, it is serves their purpose for whatever it is down the line. These kids It's not like you know, when I was younger kids was stealing cars and joy riding. These kids have a purpose. They steal a car. Go someplace else dropped that off, Steal a better car And that way to confuse law enforcement before the second one is reported. They find the first one. And now this car ends up You know, on the West west of South sides, and you know, Unfortunately, people are getting murdered. I mean, murders air, You know, we had two murders and 15 shot last weekend. Yeah, you talk about getting a gun and that that is also up. I saw those stories today to how more and more people are doing that, and there's also a trend line in that direction it and that it doesn't necessarily Protect you. You saw that with that, lieutenant. That fire lieutenant who was retired..

"All right. 1 19 here on WGN. Sergeant Pete joins us for the first time in the new year. Sergeant Pete, how you doing? I'm doing fine. How are you? Okay. Would you do the polar plunge here? We were talking about it earlier. Have you ever done the polar front the eighties once? She wouldn't do it again. Yeah. Yeah. How did it feel The whole thing, would you? Uh, were you just like, Yeah, It's just as cold as I thought. This is crazy. Mm hmm. Yeah, You know, sometimes people walk out of that water and they really don't look like they're that upset by it and then others they're just like, Wow. This year, it's all virtual go so you can do whatever you want. You could jump in your own bathtub. Whatever you want to do. Fascinating age. I drowned. Don't say that. Hey, lots of talk about seriously on a more serious note here Which things going on a lot of time once how much we can get to 11 of the things I do want to ask you about because And the rules and regs of the police department is there have been these efforts to try to determine whether any Chicago is. Officers participated in the violence of the riots at the Capitol. And if they did, they'd face discipline. I guess my question to you is What kinds of what's the code of conduct in the rules for Sure someone what would what would they be up against here? What kind of discipline with a face? Number one. If violent getting law or you are under investigation by an outside agency week, you have to report that for the police department. Number two. You've got the bring discredit upon the department. They are identified as being a police officer. So they actually violated going one of the Capitol grounds and then the Capitol building. They have real problems, but they were just on the outskirts in the peaceful rally. There's nothing wrong. I've seen this kind of past where there have been on pins or some Island and that they have had to face the consequences. There's been disciplined disciplinary action. Oh, sure. I mean, there's there's we spend that have done things that aren't too bright and they've been disciplined for it. You know, you just can't be in uniform and go on the news and blast the police department or blast somebody else or You have to get permission from the department to do that. Mm. Speaking the department you've seen the union boss under fire from a number of different angles. He gave a radio interview, and he talked about how it seemed that he was defending some of the violent portions of the folks who We're writing at the Capitol. I know he had opportunity to sort of re explain that later and said that he doesn't condone the violence part of it. But you now have nearly three quarters of the Chicago City Council demanding his resignation. John can't 10 content Zara Is his name. We know him. He's been on WGN radio. He's been everywhere your thoughts about that whole thing. What do you think? Um, they, you know, he I believe that he's done, uh, not a suspension, but they he's been. He's not an act of number. He's been stripped butt. To remove the union boss. You. You know, he's duly elected by the police. To help in negotiations of the contract. This this stuff that he did. Probably he just spoke off the cuff and too quickly and didn't do any research and Really, really hurt himself and hurt. You know, people that support the union made them look bad that this guy was their elected head. So he's you know they're doing a couple of investigations on and now but You know I was I was instrumental. I was in a group that we fought for the union in the seventies, and Jane Byrne finally gave it to us because we had no rights. But now I just can't be a personal thing between him and the mayor or him and the governor. It's just gonna be for the good of the people, and I don't think Don't think that they can him getting fired wouldn't require him to quit. And I don't think that the F O P National Committee can remove them. I really don't I think he would have to be almost impeached and thrown out by members of the department. Mm. So it seems highly unlikely that he would lose that post unless he loses the support of the rank and file is what I'm hearing you saying. Right, And I think he's lost the support of a lot of people. You know what's what he said. You know this. Ah, policeman is beaten to death in the in the capital, and he don't be before he gets all the information. He spoke, and that was, you know, very poorly timed on his part. Yeah, I think that people thought the words he used to, um, we're not the right ones that it was just people acting out on frustration when we saw the violent images that he didn't seem to respond to those in the same way When you're trying to uphold law and order, it seemed like those that was a mixed message to a lot of folks to say the least. Okay, so the things that he said, uh, posted on Facebook the cause of this problems with the investigation within the department itself. Right, Right. I get that, Um, you know, you touched on something there about representing the interests of the rank and file. There's something front and center in the Illinois Legislature. And we're gonna talk about this next half hour house Bill 1 63 that will re envision P. Police work on dsev up a lot of new rules here. Um, you know, it's it's interesting because I'd like to hear your thoughts on it. We're gonna hear from state lawmakers who are both for and against the law as it's written, but from a police perspective you you've read through what you can. And you heard about this bill. What do you think? I think that.

"Sergeant Pete. Hello. Shut up bets. That was way We're going to go out and smoke a cigarette or something. But now you've got some time. You don't do that anymore. Oh, how you feeling? All right. Okay, Good. You know, they have golf is over until it gets warmer. But maybe later this week, we're gonna have time Skilling on our three o'clock hours, so we'll try to firm up what days of the best days to get out there. And when it's going to snow, too. We'll talk about all that. But I want to talk to you about these expressways. Shootings. Um, it feels like you know, Mary talks about him and traffic reports and sometimes, and they seem to shut down. The lanes for a pro, terribly long time. I think I understand why, but I just want to ask you overall. When you look at the number of expressway shootings, I kind of want to get your take on what's behind it all what you're seeing here. It's double what we saw. Last year, there have been 99 Expressway shootings in the Chicago area. So far this year. Far exceeding the 52 scene last year. 43 2018. It's a huge increase in I just wanna hear Take why that is what you think. Well, if you notice shootings are up in the every different category from Carjackings to just regular shootings, But on the expressway if people identify a target that they want They're going to drive on the expressway. Follow that person till they get on the expressway. Then start shooting at him and then dive off at the next exit. And if you hit somebody now you have you know a car lt's a record pull over to the side. You call the state police. They're the one that he handles those, and then they have to shut down the lane or two lanes or three depending on you know the incident. And now they have to look for evidence. Can you imagine looking for A little bit of a shell from about gunshot from a bullet on an expressway with cars. You know that we're driving by and blowing them and sending them all over the place. So it's It's an easy way. You want to make a hit. You drive on the expressway, followed the guy shoot at him and then drive off and get lost in the neighborhood. So you're saying there intentionally using them? Oh, yeah, Absolutely. It's the the easiest way you know to do a drive by because there's not a lot of cameras on the expressway, and it's a lot easier, you know, Hit your target and then take off. Three summers ago. I got shot in and I'm 55. When I called the troopers. They were there in like, two minutes and take Toby. My big mistake was having law enforcement plates or police memorial plates around for peace stickers. It makes you a target, but now Gangs. They're using it as a way to get it. Anybody or if you cut somebody off, they're going to shoot at you. It's just insanity. It's indifference that that certain groups have to the value of somebody's life. Yeah. I mean, it seems that one of the things that excited in the reports about this too, or just that they're you know, they're our gang wars, you know, point very simply put in that those air places when they're chasing each other, they'll get on the expressway and sometimes those sorts of situations unfold. They're on, but that's also one of them one of the things that officers are saying On These guys are could be a mile or two miles away or lost in the streets or already abandoned the car that they jacked earlier to use in this crime. Yeah, it's it's unbelievable. I would You know, I was thinking to myself before the story even came out. It does seem like there are an awful lot of them and sure enough double of what we've seen in the prior years. And it seems you've talked about chase policies that officers really are not allowed to chase. And so that's sort of limits their abilities to go after someone When nonsense breaks out or worse, Violence breaks out on an expressway. Yeah. I mean, you know, on an expressway just called the police. Don't patrol the express with state police do And they don't have the manpower to do you know, they have police. You know, troopers all over the place. So Excuse me, it usually happens. In around independence or Kensi. Places like that Words zip time. Zip off Asselin. It's uh But now you're seeing him tonight. 57 You see them on? I 55 you're seeing a man. Hell, you're even seeing him on Lake Shore drive, You know a few of them. Yeah. So you're saying the police officer would not even follow them onto the expressway or they were already sort of following somebody? No, no, Please don't. Please don't patrol the expressways except lakeshore drive, but I mean, if they were following someone in the neighborhood who then jumps on it Ashland and gets onto absolutely the police would continue. She after somebody you know was shot or they're looking at a stone car or a guy that committed or a robbery or whatever the police would follow. The Chicago police would follow him onto the highway. And radio. You know that there are following somebody or Jason. Usually, What they try to do is follow him, keep him in sight. Men radio ahead in order to get you know them blacked off somewhere. They don't want to get into a chase on the highway. Obvious reasons, I think and then your other point before right, it's very can be dangerous. So the other point, though, is the is interesting as well. It's why, when there is a shooting there that it shuts everything down because they're going in there looking for shell casings for any piece of evidence. They have to shut down Ah, wide swath of the expressway so that the officers and the investigators could actually do their job and fan out. Enough enough space to be able to collect that evidence. Right, because people you know, even if you block off one or two lanes with trucks and flashing lights People are still too dangerous is what is it? Scots law where you're supposed to go Elaine over to get away from fire trucks and police officers, So they're better off shutting off the expressway. So you don't have some crazy person just Drive through the middle of a police investigation. One. Excuse about something else. The mayor just tweeted this afternoon about a party. Another one of those big parties that was broken down or broken up with Pete. You're on a kind of a quote. She sort of line. I don't know. Where you are, If that's a of cell phone, um knows that much better, much better. Thank you. Um, Mayor life. What is tweeting out that this is a slap in the face all those working to fight this second surge? If we're going to get through this, every Chicagoan needs to do their part, and they're talking about how 150% party in Wicker Park. Was shut down another one of those sort of parties where people are hanging out close all night. No Mass, no. Nothing just sort of mentioning that and one of things we didn't get to last time you were on is that when these parties happen often, I think people are calling them in. I wonder if there is a huge volume of people trying to turn in these parties or Things that they see. And if, if so, what officers do when they get that call. When someone says, Hey, a lot of people are gathering. What happens? How does that handled? Well, you have to hit deal with the priority if there's nothing else of great importance going on. The police are supposed to respond to a party like that, and they're supposed to break it up and they're supposed to.

Right now, you see the food bank lines or super long and I want to talk to my friend Dan Givens, who's joining us now? How you doing, Dan? Good. And how are you? I'm okay. I know you've been working with it with food banks, including security for for years and years and years all across the Chicago area, and I just want you to update us and tell us what it is You're seeing right now, as we approach the holiday Well, what we're seeing right now is just such a higher demand because of the the pandemic. People are loss of employment. Um, it's unbelievable. I was out in Wheaton at our Captain Liberty Land yesterday and one of our one of our beneficiaries People's Resource Center. They had cars lined up for a couple blocks, which is not The norm. In what most of our most of our food pantries they're doing right now, with Pull up, Pop your trunk, get your food because nobody's going inside and everybody's trying to keep their social distance. What we talked about back in March when the pandemic just started. Way gave people a list of different things that they could provide personal hygiene items. You know, toilet paper, seven products, etcetera and all the difficulties. I think what the food pantries need right now is money. Because what they need to do They need to go and purchase food that they need. We don't know what they need, but they know that their supplies are down. Do they need to go out and buy chicken poultry? You know protein items. You know that's the best thing we can do, And it's so easy right now. Because you can go online to to to, uh, For example, on our website. We've got all of our beneficiaries, which People confined. But what is it? Give it. Give it to a standstill. We have it. Yeah, yeah. Dan Givens, foundations that or g'kar, and that lists. All of ours are run through People's Resource Center, West Suburban community panty loaves and fishes. United community concerns Catholic charities that panels three counties to page pads, which is ah, there's a public action to deliver shelter. Almost walk in a system that we're making.

Donate that Sell army metro dot org's put one thing in particular to I think we need to remember our armed forces veterans. Because not only are they suit seemed to always be in a crisis. If there, you know, maybe PTSD or whatever. But also this is a very serious time of year for people thinking about suicide. And there's a crisis hotline. It's better veterans crisis line that net or 1 802 738255. And if you could put that, I'm sure you're gonna put that Let me read, the better. It would be great time. Pete's got all the information, but it's Veterans crisis line that net or 1 802 738255 Press one. All right. We'll try to get that posted as soon as we can to so people can find that sure. Sure, one thing when I say people, you know, are agencies all the agencies and the providers. Need money is because they can. It's just easy for people to do. People say, How can I help all can l go online, Get all your credit cards, Give them some money and those go out and buy wholesale and get great deals to take care of Everyone's. There's also something that I think people need to consider as well. We could be good neighbors back in the day when that Schwarz started his good neighbor food drive. He wanted people to be just good neighbors take care left doing well being checked on the person across the street from you. Maybe the elderly person that's living by themselves. You're gonna accomplish two things. Perhaps you could take them a meal ringing the doorbell. You put your mask on. Stay back a few feet. Give them a meal. But when you're going to the grocery store, touch base with them and say, Can I pick up something for you? Because Maybe they don't have a vehicle. Maybe they're just afraid to go because they are elderly, and they don't want to take a chance. Let's not assume that our neighbors have what they need. You're good neighbor Go out and do Whatever you can to help Because it it takes a village. It takes a neighborhood. Um, I remember that we always is an angel's one by my office. Sorry. Okay. We got to hear you. Yeah, I know. But But You know, we let's let's keep our reputation intact to be in the city of big shoulders. Let's take care of our neighbors in need. Take care of ourselves and our family and take care of that little old lady or that nice gentleman across. This is a great commercial out right now. Little girl walking a plate of food over to across the street to a neighbor. Obviously, I think the guy lives by himself. It was just so grateful. I mean, how hard is that to do? It's not hard at all. It's not, and I would say well being checks financially and things they need, but also mentally. I mean to check in on people. It's It's super important. We were talking to Dr John Duffy about that. Just last week, he says, Ask the question. How are you and then follow up and say No, really, How are you? Can I do anything to help and that alone can sometimes open the door to just a meaningful, You know, a powerful exchange and people can help each other. I mean it, Zilu Lee. I mean, I remember when we talked before and shortly afterwards, a Friend of Mike Ryan, who his phone charger died. And and Sergeant Pete and you, You put us in touch with the person on the desk and they made it well, being checked. Not only do well being check, but they took him a new charge of first phone. He's in his eighties. You know, he lives by himself does not have any family on guess. Oh, they made his day. They thought I didn't know if Ryan was Six was something wrong, But I mean, that's the kind of thing people need to know about our police department. You know, they're They're more than just the person stopping you for doing something wrong. You know, they take care of our neighbors in need as well. Get enough Attention for that. I'm happy to hear that. I didn't. I didn't know that other piece of it. I know you had reached out with someone who needed help. I didn't know what ended up happening there. I'm happy that worked out and they didn't follow up. They called me When they were in his apartment with the new Charger of the The two officers called me. Let me talk to round two. Sure me that he was okay. Great. That's just above and beyond. It is totally. I'm so happy to hear that. Listen to the stand. I got this text from listener to 1 90. I just posted this on my Facebook page. Perhaps you could share this with your listeners. So many people reducing the size of their Thanksgiving gatherings. This year. I offered this suggestion. Take the money you would have spent, but didn't on this year's feast and donated to your local food pantry or take that money and buy food and take it to the pantry and donated neither instance they'll be grateful for your donations. This will be a way to share your Thanksgiving feast with many, many others. We wish you all is not great, safe, healthy happiness. Great. What's that? If you remember back and all that some of my friends are listening now, what started the whole awareness with myself? And you know, it's just been an ongoing thing for 37 years was listen to Ed Schwarz, his very first good neighbor Food drive on Bradley Place. He was mad that Mayor Byrne was spending $300,000 on fireworks when people were going to bed hungry. I'm taking myself Chicago's going to bed hungry. This is back in the day when you couldn't rescue food. When you know you didn't you couldn't go into you know somebody's dumpster and because because it was illegal, really? But then the good Samaritan came along. And restaurants could donate food that they had left at the end of the day without any repercussion of being sued on DSA. Oh, that's just not only does that help, but but now with restaurants You can't have a critical stage in their survival..

"Right study having the uniform. I don't know where these kids are learning at such a young age to distrust and be afraid of the police. I just don't get it. And I don't These protesters who who say yes, go out, Lou, because it's reparations are what we're going to do this because there you were. Somehow we're losing, you know, a sense of Family, and I and I think that scoreboard There are certain schools in this city where there it's an infestation of gang neighborhoods so you can have 456 different sets are 10 different sets of gangs in a high school. Usually, you know, I worry about the high school's morning. The great schools where you saw they have to be aware of what your kids are going to be dealing with in that school, because when school's open up these gangs that's when they start recruiting And sometimes, you know, a kid can't fight off all this recruiting. He s the site with somebody, so he'll be able to walk to and from school, So there's a lot more thinking that should be put into this. Then a simple fact of do we want him Because our Children are intimidated or do we want him to protect our Children? And you know that's a big issue, and I put me I think even the school officer should be there to protect the kids. I don't think they should be the first line of discipline or the first line that would somebody would call me having Ah, get always the Johnny Smith has given me a problem. Well, you know what? Then they stood then the teachers that Dina Man are the dean or whomever. Should be the person that that kid has contact with. Not the kid has the night for a gun or he's being really violent. That's when you need two policemen there and If you do need him, and he's not there and you have to call, you know a good response. Time will be 3 to 5 minutes. A lot of can happen in 3 to 5 minutes. Yeah, no question about that. I mean, I believe that I think some of the school's two that have voted to Alice Police officers. A couple of them don't really have an active crime problem. Their violence problem in this school Northside Prep is an example of that. Not a big crime problem. Easy for them to make that decision about removing school about roommate proving police. But you're not seeing that decision yet from some of the other schools and I and we'll see what happens there. Hey, I only have a minute here. Sergeant Pete, but as a headline that sort of disturbing to me, and it's um, I I bet it's going to be disturbing you. You've probably seen it. Chicago police retiring at an unheard of rate. They're just looking at the number of officers set to retire for the next couple months. What is it at least 110, which is 58 51 you know it's it's it's happening in New York. It's happening in Minnesota, tapping in a lot of big cities, a lot of policemen when they need the minimal requirements to get their insurance and get out. They're getting out. And the starving part about that to me is that you do need experienced officers on you know, on our streets, right? It can't have all young officers on the streets that that wouldn't be a good way to go about dealing with these kinds of situations. Do you think when they went when they went to seniority to pick a shift? You lost a lot of the ability for mentoring like the old timer teaching the young guy what he wants. You know what? What He should learn. So, um, that's that dances, nothing that it's tough to be out there. When you're you know, out of the academy or you've been out of the Kevin you six months, eight months or a year you still there's a lot to learn, and there's a lot and the biggest thing you learn is the Came the ability to I have conversations with people and interact with people and, you know, build the kind of relationships and trust that they're trying to exactly right relationship building and learn your beat. Learned people and your post learn so you can talk to who will talk to you. That's what you need, And if these young kids it's tough, it's you just can't all of a sudden, just come out there. And after all the book learning figure it all out. If you need a little experience and experience is the best teacher in this kind of gap. No doubt, no doubt. Thanks, Sergeant. Pete. Have a good afternoon. Did you get golfing in today? Help, Please. I wouldn't call you if I didn't know you needed. I get it. I get it. Thank you, sir. Appreciate it. Have a good afternoon.

"Not okay to harm others. OK to hurt others, you know, Um, but again, it's from a situation of there's a lot of confusion. There's a lot of Myth. Misinterpretation of information. You know, Certain media aren't helping out, you know, and people are riled up. You know, at the end of the day lift me understanding. You know all these things. They keep you in an elementary school and those are important, right? It goes back to very simple things. You're absolutely right. Thank you, Justin. It's it's Ah. Welcome. Welcome phone call. Welcome perspective in this whole thing. It's go to Max. And then we will get to Sergeant Pete has promised Max Ah go ahead. What's on your mind? Thanks for taking my call. I wanted Teo comment on some of the comments I found from other listeners that I found frankly pretty ridiculous people who might go to Chicago once a year for a bears game or something who live in incredibly affluent suburbs, trying to tell People who have seen their communities destroyed by gentrification and police violence. How they should express their right to protest is frankly appalling to me a someone who has actually been to many of the protests, all violence. I have team have been incited by the police and all the protests of in peaceful and I do understand the Problems with looting, and I certainly agree that that is something that should be a but it is really important going off of what Justin said. In terms of understanding that these people have dealt with their communities being destroyed by which white people frankly who have been many of the people calling in coming in and increasing the property values of their neighborhood to the point where they can't live there anymore, So it makes sense that they would want to try to get some of that back or not. Of course, condoning it. But I do think it's kind of ridiculous for these people call on their high horse when they really have very little affiliation with the city to say that it's okay for them to try to tell other people how they should express their anger. When you see the protesters throwing projectiles and hitting police officer with the skateboard. Do you think that that is the police inciting that? I think I obviously haven't been there every single day, but that I have been there. The only time I seen stuff like that happens in the recesses in response to the police violently beating people with clubs and arresting them and putting them into unmarked vans and sometimes get pilot. Yeah, but that's called self defense. When folks show up with U Hauls push back into some of this because I want to hear your perspective when folks have 12 U hauls that they have pre arranged from the day before and then try to have a moment where this untangle would shooting. Is identified as the reason why we need to head out and are already ready to do that in these caravans, and those are the folks that hit some of the biggest places and with the biggest halls. I mean, do you see that as being sort of instigating factor in a promise. So I obviously agree that there are people who are opportunistic and trying to take advantage of those things. However, I think the media focused on that to the level that it's been, and frankly appalling personal. I haven't seen that many of the tapes. I've been out there. It might actually be happy. Maxie's. Still there may focus of any of this. All right. It's a focus and I'll tell you why, Max because I went to CPS. And when I see that businesses are legit, saying I want to leave the city when you hear residents saying I want to leave the city. I don't know how you say that we're going to have funds to fund the kinds of programming That everyone is asking for mental health and school. Better school police not inciting violence at these things. The reason it gets out of hand because they start throwing people who are simply there to try to express their pain. And then it turns into a massive Issue and violent situation because they don't think they're gonna be looking to you. They think they're in the process You are part of. May I may I agree. There are some of them who absolutely or show of their the reliefs and changes in the system that they think we need. Or you think we need in our city and those air welcome perspectives and we do need to listen pearly, er conversation. But I just wonder when you show up with projectiles and you start throwing them at police. When you throw one at a firecracker firecracker at a police officers I and break his or making, making blind and break his orbital bone. That is not a police officer. We know about stuff like that. But we don't know about the protesters who have been frankly abducted by unmarked agent and then jail's. Whenever we hear from somebody, you don't know what's happening to them. OK, I follow the activist accounts. I followed the police accounts. I think they're all well, well documented cases of lots of things. I don't see people disappearing in police custody with what we are seeing is people are bonding out. That's what we do see? I'm not disappearing in police custody. I'm going to lose me there. Max, We got it. We gotta go. I gotta talk to you. A sergeant Pete Pete is 1 44 I'm way over time, but so wait into conversation. 312981 72 100 This year's been tough.

I mean, they're telling you what, what they're going through, and you're trying to find solutions. Not an easy time to do that. Yeah, that's part of the job I signed up for and hi. I didn't think it was gonna be easy. And lately, it certainly hasn't been. Yeah. I wish you the best of luck. Thanks for calling in order, and we have a good afternoon as much as you can. And the weekend to appreciate it, but thank you very much. It's a safe weekend in your ward. We have just a second here, Sergeant Pete. We were talking about tactical issues here, and we don't reveal anything about what you might know about what police might be doing. But Generally here, they're going to add 1000 officers. We're hearing and cancel over time. They're going to be working more with social media and stuff like that. But it seems as if there is a new plan in place. From what you're hearing. What do you think? Yes, they plan and having truck's blocked the downtown area they're going to put in concrete blocks. They're goingto have spike strips. They're goingto have policemen assigned to strategic post so people do come downtown loop this weekend. They're going to try to trap him back some in and plant in the tires. They'll impound the cars and certain arrest the people. I mean, it's good that she got 42 out of 100 but In May and June. We didn't get you know there's no no numbers on people that were the worst rioting in the worst looting. There's no mention of them. So I think I'm getting the section more people and having them work longer hours to monitor social media will least alleviate. Some of the surprise and occurred. Um, last week. I think the they didn't have enough people. I I believe I can handle all that. Yeah, at least alleviate some of the spread of it because it seems as if they're listening to some of the aldermen and people who have called into the show in the past and talked about it that there was a coordinated core to what happened there and then the rest of folks sort of jumped onto this sort of social media. Campaign. I kind of like to get people out downtown. And if they're police have sort of scene that ahead of time. That might have made a difference. Those kinds of things you police have doing for a while, Right? This is this is not new. It just seemed here. It failed, Frankly. Yeah, well, you know it was, you know, misdirection. They stole 20 U haul vans s O. They were all set and they have A group of people go one place and then you haul in the looters, they follow them. The police have no problem with legitimate for protests and marches. You know, I mean, that's everybody's right. The police even have the right to protest. But you know, these were not legitimate protest. These were just people breaking in the stores. And, you know, I know people that own build stores. You know, I'm on Michigan Avenue and there honestly frightened and there were also worried that people are not going to come downtown. To do shopping. This woman that was run over. She came from out of town to go shopping and she was run over by some guy twice. Twice May make Yuri Killer horrible situation there. You're right. And you just heard from the alderman.

"W g n couple things I want to get to here we've got okay. So a growing list of state Democrats now who are calling a Madigan stepped down from his post. As speaker of the House, head of the party, the Illinois Democratic Party. The latest well, we've got that would nine Democrats in the Legislature but now you've also got Chicago City Council members asking for him to step aside in advance election. By the way, there are some members of the Progressive Caucus. You've got Matt Martin, Andrew Vasquez, Marry Maria Hayden single Loach as Lopez. Excuse me, Rodriguez Sanchez and Daniels Spota calling for him to step down as progressive leaders. We feel strongly our current circumstances require a change in leadership. That's what they're saying, and still have some Democrats using that if the Tribune calls of Thie F troop If if these things are proven to be true if he has done these things that are laid out in the com ed sort of indictment, If he is, doesn't if he knew about them or it was part of it, then then, if then he should step aside. And it feels as if that's a little bit of a dodgy. It's not a particularly AH, it's sort of a cowardly position in many ways, because it could be years before these air actually proven in federal quarter if it if it doesn't actually get to that point. But you know, I feel making also making the argument here. If even if you weren't involved all these past, sort of relieved leading to you, and it was all going on around you and so much of it, Wass how did you not even notice? And how did you not call it out and tried to AA doom or To Ah, achieve a better government. And so that conversation is going on.

Airlines are trying all sorts of things from leaving middle seats empty to requiring people were a mass health checks. The terminals, temperature checks that kind of thing. To instill confidence in passengers who may be leery of air travel amid the global pandemic. Will Emirates is now offering traveler's insurance that if one of its passengers is diagnosed with covert 19 during your journey The Dubai based airline will cover your medical expenses up to $176,000 pay you 120 bucks a day for quarantine costs, like staying in a hotel. And if the worst case thing happens, Emirates will offer you money for a funeral $2000. Automatic with your ticket. Well, that doesn't seem right there. They'll pay 150,000 for you to get better, but only 2000 to bear you. How much is the cost is? I don't know You wanted an elaborate funeral of the I don't know that 2000 open up the back door. Look, I just wonder this in this makes people feel like okay. Well, that means they're taking it very seriously because otherwise they wouldn't be paying out my payout in a big way or if it may shoot him, just thinking about a funeral as your boarding a flight or getting kind of information when you take it yourself. Of if that sort of drives you away. That could backfire a little bit. Ever heard of a loyalty program like this before, so they're trying. That is a big incentive, and that's going on. All right. I got Sergeant pizza calling here. Sergeant P Kokonas 38 years Chicago cop because we did have Well, well. We had something happening on Oak Street. You don't see all the time And there's a reason why it's news. He had three people shot in East Oak Street, the pricey shopping district there, and a man lost his life. 26 year old man, a rapper who was there. They said that there was some Sort of fight involving some of the people involved the week before that he was targeted. Police believe likely knew the people, but it just it just sort of rattles you when when you see, like something like this happened, and I just wanted to talk with you, Sergeant Pete. Weigh in here. About what? What you see going on there? Inks for Colin. Well, I see. And the airlines doesn't have to worry about because I don't like but on that wouldn't make you do it. That whole thing wouldn't wouldn't be enough for you $2000 when I diagnose. Thank you. Um, the thing now is you see down in the loop Michigan Avenue. You see it? The hotel. They only have Ah, uh, security. They don't have bellies. So these groups are gathering in front of the hotels downtown like Trump Tower and going in and out there wrenching rooms. There haven't parties and these hotels. A lot of them are just rent these rooms out because nobody's buying anything. This rapper he was they were there was a fight and there outside the store on 17 90 Stoke Um, the week before, and this guy came back, and, uh, somebody was waiting for him because they shot all three of them. One serious, one dead, the other one with minor wounds. So if you're not, you have a lot of police in the loop and you have a lot of police on Michigan Avenue. But you know, they can't be everywhere and they can't do everything and it's just With the lack of police being able, so make stops due to consent decrees in a cell you orders..

It was covered, but I believe that was for the intention of making sure it was not defaced as the mayor is leading a commission or a committee to sort of understand where people are with all of the icons, monuments and statues throughout our city. She's promised to do that and review all of that and get input in the democratic process. That is probably the way it should be done. But that's where that sits. Let's go to the phones. Glenn, you've been on hold for a while and thank you for doing that. Your thoughts on all of this and the first time let's call him. Sorry. Long time listener. First time caller Now I support our right to protest. But these idiots partner expression, these idiots are going to continue to make matters worse with their barbaric behavior.

And who wouldn't be if you were out there and you're a teenager? You're tryingto make good in the world and your have your voice heard your Friend there has her teeth knocked out, so she's upset, But she said that they were provoked by police. I didn't see that when I looked at that video, did you All right, a messy that at all. I mean, there might have been the situations where that was true, but throwing fireworks at police and throwing water bottles. So that air frozen. I mean, is that I just to me.

I think this is van anarchy, Whatever humbling alive from the note with a text me and she said, what is going on in your city? I don't live in Chicago, but she's like it's all the way over here that I don't know. Um with him that I agreed with Donald Trump, our mayor, hit police chief that you appointed an adequate there and we need we need some help from Pont descended from help Right now. At this point, I can't stomach You turn on the news and see there's lawlessness. There's no control. There's no controlling the more that goes on. The more these people are going to think we got away with it last Friday, this Saturday we got something bigger plant. It's got to be nipped in the bud. I agree with you, Diane. I think that when you start saying that this is okay now, this is okay. Now this sort of violence is OK. And now this sort of violence is OK. You're emboldening people to believe that it is okay. And I think that was buying citizens would say no, that's not okay. There are ways to protest and there are there are ways to get your have your message heard an impact change and there is a lot of it happening in a lot of it will happen, and I'm in support of some of it.

Those kinds of situations should be tolerated. Thank you, Diane for calling And I just want to get to another call here. John, you are on w g N.

"Hi there. It's me, Anna. Hope you're doing well today. Hey, before we dig in and talk about some of the issues we're going to discuss on the show today, and I hope you'll join into the conversation that was like that here. And we have a lot to talk about today we're going to. We're going to talk about schools reopening. It's just weeks away, and you're starting to see these surveys go out and get returned about what it looks like for different school districts. It's kind of district by district. You know, it's it's so varied in the approach to how it's gonna open and you know what that looks like is ahh It's just it's it's relying on so many factors. And your risk assessment and that kind of thing. What? You're what you're comfortable with, And we're also going to talk to Sergeant Pete. He's going to join us fresh off the golf course I might add. A number of police issues discussed today. So yes, Sergeant Pete to Ah, call into the show. Today. We'll talk with him and then we got to talk about what's going on with the restaurants. This major crackdown. Across the city. You heard about this thes $40,000 worth of fines over the weekend. I guess 10,000 per restaurant. I don't remember finds like this big being issued to restaurants before here in Chicago. So this is it's a It's a big deal. And also, I'm not sure that a lot of restaurants could survive that kind of hit in this environment, too. But first I thought it would be extremely helpful to go to this list because this is out, and this is a very important list, given our forecast up to 99 this Sunday. Heating up all week, right and the best ice cream shops in Chicago. That list is out. Is also the best ice cream shops in the Midwest. That list is out too. To see if your favorites are on this list. We got Jenny splendid ice creams that's in Wicker Park, Lincoln Park, Old Town Wrigleyville West Loop in Oak Brook. And those are known for like those really strange ice cream flavors. Sweet cream biscuits and peach Jam is a flavor goat cheese with red Cherries. That's another flavor. Very popular with the cool kids. And then Margie's Candies is one of my favorite said is totally belongs on this list. It's 100 years old, and they even still have like the jukebox is at the tables. That kind of thing. It's so old school. It's so great. Homemade whipped cream. Amazing. Ah, you got George's ice cream in Andersonville on the list. You've got cone in the West loop on the list. Lickety split in Rogers Park is on the list. Beverly in Navy Pier, You've got the original Rainbow Cone and then Roscoe Village Scooter's frozen custard. All highly recommended places in the Midwest. This is an interesting list. Georges is again on the list. You got graters and Cincinnati people love graders. I've never had graters. Never had But I hear it's great, the chief in Goche in Indiana You have got movers in Traverse City, Michigan. I haven't tried that one. Ah caps frozen custard and Brookfield, Wisconsin is on the list darlings and Champagne and Danville and Margie's Candies also made the top of the Midwest. So, uh, That's what you got there. I was wondering if they put Mario's Italian ice on there. Just because it kind of deserves attention whenever it can get attention there in Little Italy, not ice cream, of course, but so delicious this time of year. I just throwing that out there as you make your plans may be a little road trip this weekend is it's going to be as I said. I was climbing into the nineties just slowly every day this week until Sunday, when it's going to hit 99. All right back to restaurants and bars here for a second. If you had any doubt that the mayor the mayor Lightfoot was playing when she said that strict social distancing would be enforced. For bars and restaurants. We just found out she is not plain. She was not playing. We pretty much got official confirmation of that. Don't have you saw her tweet here, Mayor Laura Life would put this tweet out today. We read it to you. Are reopening. Guidance isn't open to interpretation were not kidding. When we say we'll take action to save lives and preserve the gains are city has made infighting, Cove it we will do that. Pretty clear. You know, I agree with her going after the most serious offenders on this, and that's what they did this weekend. You know, kind of ruins it for everyone. When you trace the spread back to certain bars and restaurants, and you think well, all of them now have to go backwards. It's not a good thing, definitely more fair than what they were doing in the beginning. In the beginning. Remember, we had some people on the show bar and restaurant owners who said that the Department of Revenue had gone out with measuring tape, and they were like measuring the distance in between tables. If you were like, two inches short of something, they give you a citation. I didn't think that was the way to go about it. But definitely, you know, going after some of the big offenders is something that they should do. So this one they just they just shut down this West Loop restaurant, the wise owl. Ah, weekend there where people were gathering in big groups. Without mass. They were hanging out in the patio. I think there was some sort of music playing, so it sort of felt like concert like atmosphere there in the parking lot. And definitely not avoiding the rules Inspector said. The wise owl drink ary on Van Buren and Racine that's right there, along to 90 egregiously blatantly disregarded several of the rules over the weekend. City ordered that bar to close immediately for being over capacity, not enforcing social distancing and allowing guests without face coverings to hang out. I have to say, Heard I've heard of John Williams. He had him on for a minute. I heard that bar owner kind of interviewed throughout the day today. I just It's interesting. It's definitely his place deserves to be on the most serious offenders list. I agree with that. But he raised this point that I think is harder to do than you think, which is as a server who's about customer experience. And you're about, you know, trying to earn your tips. Now you're also the masked police. Like how does that work? If them kind of where all those hats right? Yeah, but if if everyone's going to do it, everyone's going to do it. You know, if it if all of a sudden everyone, every server every place is saying Sorry, guys. You need to wear your mask. Then it becomes more commonplace and acceptable, but I heard him say, though, was that people they were telling people to do it and that people weren't complying. So then, like what do you do? You call the police on something like that? Well, Pete, you said you have some audio here. You want to play for us? Let's let's hear them. We want everybody to.

"On W. D. N. all right just a little bit more about what the mayor had to say there I just want to recap a couple things I heard and then we'll move on to some kind of big in the news that we need to talk to a little bit about what little bit was sergeant Pete and then we're gonna move on and lighten things up and talk about Memorial Day weekend we've got some gardening expert here we've got a cocktail miss mixologist if you're making cocktails this weekend I got huge plans this weekend I'm I'm that I'm grilling that's what I'm doing that's about it what do you really fun yeah well we make real everything we love to cook I mean just I just throw everything my little veggie skewers in aluminum foil and put shrimp skewers together we my husband does up you know burgers and all the meat he handles that and I I love to just prepare all the the other stuff just I will I do like I do like the way things takes on a grill your I. D. try the watermelon and all those other things behind the rules a young pears and pineapple but not watermelon good they're really good really there's yeah yeah it's really nothing what isn't going on across the table just kind taste good that way and this is the first weekend we really can break out do it's going to be nice and warm but you know Hey I would just look let's just recap a couple things bridge and I don't I don't know what you heard there but I I heard a lot in that news conference because we unlike the rest of the state and the city of Chicago we're not moving to phase three until early June sometime in early June single digits of June is what it was basically eventually narrowed down to and what does it mean so she says that libraries and real estate offices office jobs and childcare on some hotel and lodging the restaurants and the barber shops all of that will have some sort of limited capacity coming up early June and I just you know the restaurants I feel they they some of them are feeling like they got the rug pulled out from under them because they heard the governor's announcement that Hey we're allowed outdoor seating and it's going to be that'll help you a little bit I know the outdoor I'm sorry the delivery in the carry out that you're doing already that's not that's not keeping restaurants will float necessarily this is one more thing to throw at you some of them got really prepared for that because they thought that would include them and then their life it said not not so fast she did I mean you know you you prefer someone I think you were talking about in the news as well well she said that she did say the outdoor which set a couple of things one that the she doesn't love the idea of a relying on outdoors because of me look outside today though you know and the the weather's not very reliable in Chicago so people could have to bring in staff and pay them and not have someone to be able to sit outside so that makes sort of sensor she almost a you you tell me but she almost seemed to be advocating for two more quickly moved for a more limited indoor seating as well hi yeah I don't see that happening in this next phase though I mean that would be it later June maybe more on track with what the governor is saying late late June well she gave me she said that a couple times that she's not tied to the phases much that you know it could be ms mid phase or phase three point five or things like that for some of these things yeah I heard I did yours say businesses are starving we need to throw them a lifeline she certainly aware of the fact that these businesses need that kind of help I just I I didn't I didn't hear that that was going to be in early June kind of thing if it's not early June I've I would bet it is later Jim means you have to partially inside here yeah no I agree it's I don't think that would be part of the early one away right which is closer to the governor's deadline SO than elsewhere she also talked about summer programs lots of questions about the lake front there is they were asking over and over outdoor setting seem lower risk she pushed back strongly on that she said that you know Hey look when you have people congregating outside it's a breeding ground for the virus and we're not gonna let that happen you know every infectious disease experts when asked about this in advance of Memorial Day weekend and I'm I have some of it here outdoor settings like beaches are less likely to spread the virus than indoor settings that's what's known that's a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins University center for health security that's why the reporters were asking all the questions because he said Hey isn't there a scenario where we could open the lake front and then there's an Aston asked this but she's haunted by the images from earlier when remember what that look like early on when it just everyone flooded the lake front at the height of the the virus and it just seems like people are taking the right precautions I wonder if now that we know so much more about it we are taking more precautions in our day to day lives and maybe just maybe people are ready if there was some sort of a plan to do that I think she'll come up with something soon there's a lot of pressure there as the weather warms up to get something open I do want to talk about this too because this is big in the news on the cook County Board you see this this also the mayor was livid over this they are now allowing the release of addresses for anyone to test positive for October nineteen so if you get it your address goes in a database and you potentially it would be com public on one hand you've got first responders and police and firefighters who they go into homes not knowing who has it and you can imagine the risks that they're facing on the other hand you got people who don't want their health data to become public and I I just feel like you know that you know the county board says you can only release addresses not identities not people's names but I think sometimes you can kind of figure out if a two people live in a home in two people have it there even when you can kind of figure out who it is that caused them to that's a journalism thing right we learned if you name if you say someone who works in the WGN newsroom but don't say which one are you can figure it out or you kind of implicate all of them which is improper as well well the other way reporters can figure it out and even citizens its foibles long as it's in a public database the freedom of information act allows you to go ahead and get that data and as soon as people get their hands on it it becomes public ultimately is there a value to knowing that though if you live on that street you know I suppose your contact tracing people are supposed to find that out anyway when we get better at that or for the person who's responsible they might just go ahead like I got it I would tell everybody I contacted I absolutely would I don't want my name in a public database necessarily well I mean when I get it I've said this during the mincing rascals because I you know I however it actually I'm in a personal situation where we came across someone who we knew in ours circle had it but it Ortiz wouldn't tell us for privacy and like good lord if I get it please tell everyone I have it because I want anyone who might have been around me to know that I have it so I think there are some people were could be misused by employers by landlords people who might be treated badly or differently because it's there and that's what I worry about now there's no question Chicago police and public a police across the county have a the one of the most difficult jobs anywhere in the in the America right now you think about what they're already dealing with in terms of crime and now add this to it I just that is that the troubling piece and that's what I wanna sergeant Pete about a you know as soon as this popped up I said you know what what a cop say about this survey obviously I know that the apple P. is on board with that they they want to have this kind of information some village leaders have done that too but such a P. thirty eight years a Chicago cop and always provides great perspective on these kinds of things are you what do you what do you think about all this when you know I've been thinking about this for a while and I ate it comes down to a policeman is always prepared wherever he goes because there's always the chance that somebody in the house is going to have a gun I think that they are now also going to be in the position will be compared with the masks and gloves if they're given a fact of masks and gloves that they would be prepared to go into what it and in the White House now Chicago doesn't come in come under that cook county practically goal decision about releasing the names Chicago has not thirty nine thousand cases of cold food right now so you know as a policeman for safety I would want to know but well the the way it should be for your own protection I don't think that get everything should be given out and people in the neighborhood could be astrocytes I mean if you've got somebody that's got cancer or somebody that's got another disease do you want that out there that you know what disease that could be spread so it's it you know it's fifty fifty you know it in my mind but I would have to lean towards I would not want the information released simple reason you're going to be releasing the names of policemen and firemen the first responders and their addresses and like you said boy yeah you can find out all this information and that's just that bear I can see that the lawsuits already starting and I'm I'm sure they are the hip of violations and all that stuff but that's all that aside what from a police perspective is it really helpful to know that information I know you get some sorts of information when you approach is whether it's domestic violence or guns in the home and that kind of thing is it really helpful to approach a person's house and have that knowledge that somebody has it or are you sort of already as a police officer or firefighter treating everyone as if they have it because you've got a symptomatic your carriers who could give it to you anyway well I talked to a couple of high ranking policemen today this morning and they said the same thing and they both said it the same way that policemen are prepared for anything so they're gonna be prepared for the D. M. as soon that every house they go into is somebody could have called with or somebody could have a gun or somebody could be a sex offender I mean they're just going to be prepared that's what you want but I also got you know somebody based book me or texted me and showed me a mess that they have assigned foreign police department and then the bottom of the mask it says this will not prevent infection so it give them the VTech what meant that they need what the protection that they're warranted don't have me sign for masters says this will not prevent against infection all right let me stop you there because that sounds startling to me aren't people first responders getting those and ninety five mass which provide the best possible response or a protection to these the code will well not all of them because as policemen they in that two policemen sent me a picture of this may ask themselves does not prevent infection but the majority of them are the people that I talked to the majority of the districts have the equipment and the the bottom line is yep that the mayor is going to a debt that has instructed the superintendent that that they are to discipline people that don't want to the mass in the bosses are saying the same thing if we give you the style but god sakes please where we already see that with the vest you see some guards officers who say it's uncomfortable I needs is just uncomfortable it would save your life god for bid and and that's where the where the best happy there's no answer for Bucks about that but isn't that the same with the mask same thing it it you know I don't want golf course you can you you can compare the two what are you more likely to happen gets shot or get this cold probably the call that would be built well I would lean towards would be the bigger percentage now are you know with thirty dial nine thousand cases in the city but if the city is doing in doing their part and the health department is doing their part and given of the policemen the equipment then they should use it and if they don't you know that's the problem you are yep five hundred forty policemen right now if not more as of today they have a cold with symptoms boring he had the actual vehicle called the virus yeah you know what that is now you got thirteen thousand officers but.

"Of year area of country. Why hope you enjoy your spring break? And I hope Rosen doing what he's doing. Sure, he'll talk about it on Monday when he's back. I want to talk about this. And we do have a sergeant Pete joining us to talk about police policy here. But yeah woke up this morning. The push notification from CNN, and it was another video of Chicago police officer beating on arm student just thought my gosh, it just it's a black guy for sure the image of our city, and I feel like just at a time when it feels like we're we're doing better. Well, it's annoying to a little bit of the national media because they seem to be. Using and kind of trying to click bait trying to get people to click how bad Chicago is sort of building on a reputation. That's there. And I think the problem I had I think locally it was covered. Very well. Just like the Justice Millette case, very well. Locally got into some of the details. Sometimes the great they're the ones that got the video on the awesome reporting at the school at Marshall highschool around. But in this case CNN was just interviewing the father and the Terni than they filed suit. And I get it. There's a video out and it looks. It's a disturbing video. It's tough to watch. This this sixteen year old student. Let's back. Explain it Marshall high school, maybe you've seen it is being. She was they the police were called to her school because she was she was being at their should being unruly, and they were asking to remove her from the school building. And so on the video she is tasers. She's hit repeatedly at one point an officer steps on her chest. Chest. It looks like she's dragged downstairs she's punched and again sixteen year old high school student, but I think the police will say there's more to the story. And that there's always a context to these types of videos, and I think that context is important as an excuse it. I'm not sure it does. I don't know. But I do know that there is more to talk about in terms of what the police officers dealing earlier in the hour. There's also the issue of the police report, and that seems to be with a center, the sometimes reporting is about contradictions that the video the video contradicts. The police report in the police report, they said that the that the teenager instigated the fight if you look at the video at the shows it the other way around there could be things before that. And we've learned a lot in the last two to three years about angles, and yes, and what we see and what we don't see when it comes to video. But but this is one of those situations once again, where we have is a city have to look at what could be a cover up from a police department that wants to make the story one way. And the video shows have another deal with. I I understand that point. And I appreciate it. I think the other piece of this though is what it was is what the father and the CNN story seemed to leave out. They didn't leave out the fact that when the officers arrived things got very ugly. She had already allegedly slapped her head some contact with an assistant principal the student had a restaurant battery they were going to arrest her for battery, and that's why they were called to the school. Her father was called to the school that she had. There was some violence in the past there. And then when the officers arrived, the thing, I don't think you see this on the video one of the officers nearly had her finger partly severed by her student biting it. And that the other officer broken kneecap is part of this interactions. You could see how. Nobody came out of that might have been going down. The stairs. Those everyone's seen the video. Now, you see the police officer and the student going down the stairs together that those are hard stares everything after the fact has a very ver those are very physical altercation. One that I talked to watch it's tough to watch. And I can understand why there is actual by why the their injuries, but the question at at the heart of it is do you say that those injuries are caused by student? And that's that's the question. You have to ask maybe the biting, of course. But but when you're talking about a broken kneecap or dislocated kneecap, I'm not sure that that was instigated by the kid, but what we saw on the video now again, I'm not there. I'm not part of the report, but or any of the investigation, but just from my the naked eye and looking at this video you have to wonder if there was a police report that showed that that the student instigated, you don't see it on the video. There are some things you don't see I wanna I wanna talk about that. Also wanna talk about what would have been the right way. To deal with this from police perspective. And sergeant peak countess's is joining us thirty eight years of Chicago police officer and also has worked a part timer in various capacities in schools. Yourself. Sergeant Pete thanks for joining us. He welcome. Tell us what you saw when you see this. Did the officers do the right thing there, you see what you see? I mean, I it's they show you a video. They don't show you start to finish. I mean this girl had a individual education program because of some possible problems she had with the story or whatever. So now this child uses a phone in the school. She told she can't do it. They take the office. She's going to be suspended. If that point why doesn't the school have the counselor or the social worker that deals with this kind of students deal with this child. Now if this kid then strikes a teacher that's now an aggravated battery because now it's aggravated it makes it a felony because this person is a teacher. So now, the father is called come and get your child the father, then shows up to get his child and. This. Occurs. So we don't know the kid. It's yell. Screams pushes does anything until they get to the top of the stairs. Or she makes a threat or whatever. And now you have three people falling down the stairs at officer with the finger bit threw another officer with the broken, kneecap and. Late Justice said we weren't there. We don't know the entire story. Policemen are in my terms has been we will put the place that ice schools in order to prevent violence to prevent kids getting earth outside kids coming into the school and to prevent gangs from fighting with the around the school. So now these police been put in the situation where they're dealing with the child who's obviously are five account even control and he's sitting can he's videotaping this. So why doesn't the dad jump in white isn't that the officers in that case did tell them tell them to stand back that they were going to handle it. I guess this is just an it's another. I think all of us can point out that this obviously is not the textbook way to handle a case like this. And I know it's being reviewed by the inspector general and the police review board they're going to take a look at the officers actions, and they're gonna take a look at exactly what happened here. But. I guess just it spotlights to how difficult policing can beat you show up. There is a very a student who's acting out in potentially violent way. And how'd he entered you're being asked to arrest her charger with aggravated battery? I think that's what it will get her out of the school. So how would our officer? What is the right way to do that? Asking her to be arrested. She is now committed apply at once you become aware that you have to take action. Now, what do you actually these two officers took what was in their mind or how they will do it or what a Kurd you don't ten seconds prior to the video or you know, a few seconds afterward. The Ivy thing is here this kid decided she wasn't going to go be suspended and leave that school no way shape or form her dad couldn't get her out to school couldn't get her out. So now, you're left with the police have to get out, right? And now she now realizes possibly she's gonna get arrested because she pushed the envelope to fire. So we can all sit back here at them ITO second. Guess what happened second this, and you can read a report and see, you know, the perception of what the police officers went through, and what they wrote down is what really counts in their mind. The videotape shows a, you know, a few seconds of what actually occurred, but it doesn't show the child hitting the teacher doesn't show school trying to take control of the child that doesn't show the counselors coming in the soldier what was coming in or or her interactions with the officer prior to I guess the question. Started Pete someone who's been on the force and has been as long as you have all of that being set up to the point that I think the question that we have here in Chicago is just about the use of excessive force or the what we saw on the video is not about what she did in the past. But how she was taken control of it looked like from the video excessive force. And I think that's where you start to question whether or not there was the right tactic to the used in that moment, not necessarily. I think I think all Chicago's would agree looking at the state even people around the country know, the story agree with that this isn't a model citizen. But the question is what is excessive when it's when when you see what you saw Justin. There's a paradigm that's used for a use of force. There's a verbal orders stairs person not cooperating. There's a person being resistor. There's a person being an active resistor and each one of those things escalate sue this guy. And at some point these officers spell that it was dangerous for them, and they had to put themselves in position to take control. And if because you see it one way or an that one way or or somebody else me out sites is one way or some lawyer sees a way to make bitten, you know, money against us the CPS at the police department. But they ex are are what are going to expose. What was done and how it was done. I witness reports. I don't know if you've read any of those I you know, what about what other people wrote that they observed because you see it on video. It's it's it's not all, you know, offered through as the Mr. smollet case will show you the show big broad guys in that case fell apart. Yeah. I can you say, oh, well, she's a sixteen or seventeen year old girl. Fifteen year old kids kill people in this city. Two boys just beat up a security guard at McDonald's a few days ago, where the guy at a pull out a gun after they broke a bottle over a set. So ages ages relative, you know, fifteen sixteen seventeen year old kid can be tough kid boy or girl should there be a different set. And there probably is because you've worked in both scenarios whether. You're on the beat on the streets or whether or not you're in a school for a lot of concern about the way that the Chicago police deal with Chicago students inside of the schools is there a different set of rules of engagement when it comes to policing in a school as opposed to policing in the street. You know crime and usually in most schools most officers, and I'm sure that these two they're assigned to that school good working relationship with those kids. And that's what you try to do. You know, Neil days. It was called off. The supreme they went Anna was great. Thank you very much. All right. So did you ever do an officer friendly re-shoot up in the classrooms? Oh, God forbid. No. They would get. No, not at all. So, you know, but now it's a different. You take a Sullivan high school when I was a kid that was an open campus..
