Last week The International Association of Chiefs of Police ..conference .was held at McCormick Convention center in Chicago, Chiefs from all over the country attended and so did International chiefs from around the world, what the IACP really is, is a giant Toys R Us for cops, walking through the convention center looking at all the new technology, weapons, vehicles and many other things made me realize how important technology is to the men and women of law enforcement, Technology is the future and is a leading contributor in fighting crime at every level.

And the conference didn’t go without controversy, Chicago Superintendent Eddie Johnson, decided to boycott President Trumps speech to the Chiefs, he stated it was about Chicago values, but what it’s really about is the political sanctuary city policy Chicago as adopted.

I believe Eddie Johnson made a huge mistake, and it is the same mistake the political structure is making. By him not showing up to meet the president was disrespectful to the Office of the president. I can’t help wondering what additional help the president would have provided to the Men and women of the CPD had Johnson just sucked it up and attended. and don’t forget this what could have been provided to the CPD that could have helped the people living in the war zones of Chicago, he failed you the people on Multiple fronts, all for the rights of people that don’t legally belong in this country.

I find it ironic that Eddie Johnson the top law enforcement officer in Chicago tells us, to follow local state and federal laws, and there he is contradicting himself while violating federal immigration laws.

The truth is Trump is right about some of what he said, but to be fare under Johnson the men and women of the CPD have seen significant reductions Murders are down 11% year-to-date and 31% over the last three years, Shootings are down 11% year-to-date and 39% over the last three years. And I know this to be true because I’m out there watching and listening to what’s happening in the streets.

And Mr. President with all due respect, if Chicago is an embarrassment to the country then so are 20 other cities because Chicago in 2019 was ranked the 21st most violent city in America, and this is based on population the number 1 most violent city in the country is St louis not Chicago Mr. President. The truth is we have a national epidemic of violence in this country and we are forcing are cops on a national level to fight this war with one hand tied behind their backs. I don’t know who the cop is that told you this mess here in Chicago can be cleaned up in one day, is just not true, it sounds like a fairy tale, it took 50 years to create this nightmare and its going to take years to mop up this mess, ya see the states attorney is giving a free pass to criminals and cops arrest violent gun offenders and the courts in some cases put them right back in the streets, and we know the department has been compromised by the political structure, and the truth is the entire swamp in Chicago needs to be drained, and only then can we start the clean up process.

Eddie Johnson embarrassed the cops in Chicago, in front of the countries and the worlds police chiefs. Had you attended the president’s speech I think much could have been accomplished and I think the tone of the president’s speech would have been much different, you slammed the door in the face of the president, and he had every right to be pissed off, and he was, With all due respect Mr. Johnson, I think a cop that’s political will fail in the end and I know firsthand the rank and file don’t like it, that’s for sure, what Chicago needs is leadership that is thicker skinned and can shelve their ideological leanings and work for the citizens of Chicago. unfortunately, that’s not happening under the present leadership.

The IACP petitioned the board to sanction Supt. Johnson for skipping Trump’s speech, the past president claims it’s a violation of the group’s rules to steer clear of politics.
And the Chicago police union’s board of directors voted “no confidence” in Johnson’s leadership.

Bloody Chicago Video: This is the main reason why I am out in the streets doing what I do, it’s about the kids and there are many other kids and young people killed that will stay with me forever. The night I built this video I drank half a bottle of Southern Comfort and it was the first time I drank since 2016. It took 6 hours to write the script and build the video, when I drink my true feelings about the sadness of all this comes out from the depths of my soul. And It’s the only time I ever reach down in there. I have been getting some heat in the streets by some lately, and I thought it was time to remind them why I am out here doing what I do.

A lot of people don’t know much about the origins of Maggio News I have been all over the country covering many different radical groups over a four-year period. One day I got tired of the streets of Chicago and decided to take a break and went to Ferguson Missouri to cover the protests there, little did I know at the time it would turn out to be anything but a break, being white and looking like a cop to some, made it all the more dangerous, the protests turned into shooting mass rioting looting and burnings, all of this set the stage for the most violent 24 hours of my life. But made it out unscathed.

This is a look from the ground of what really happened in Ferguson Missouri after the not guilty verdict was announced against cop Darren Wilson in the shooting and killing of Mike Brown.

This is what anarchy looks like folks, it isn’t pretty!!!! Don’t ever forget it people!!!!!!!!!

Bloody Chicago Video: Tyshawn’s family the residents of Auburn Gresham and the people of Chicago have patiently waited for the wheels of justice to turn in this case and today they have, giving 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee Justice, I think now this young boy can finally rest in peace.

Four men were eventually arrested in connection to the murder of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee. All four men were over 25 years of age.

The first to go down was, Anthony Morgan age 32 bought guns in New Mexico and sold them here in Chicago, 3 of the guns were tied to 3 homicides in Chicago including the Murder of Tyson Lee. Anthony Morgan only received 4 years in prison.

The second to go down was, getaway driver Kevin Edwards age 26, in sept 2019 he plead guilty to first-degree murder in exchange for a 25-year prison sentence.

And the third was the shooter Dwright Boone-Doty age 25 he was found guilty of first-degree cook county jury on oct 3rd of 2019 he faces life in prison.

And the last man to go down was Corey Morgan age 31 was the mastermind behind the murder he was also found guilty of first-degree murder cook county jury on oct 4th of 2019 he faces 100 years in prison.

The neighborhood of Auburn Gresham still searches for peace 4 years after Tyshawn’s death, unfortunately the neighborhood has been unable to attain this, and it seems to be an unattainable goal for the people of Auburn Gresham, at least for now.

BLOODY CHICAGO VIDEO: The Bloody summer in Chicago, claimed 142, men, teens, women, from neighborhoods across the city.
Over the last two weekends, 15 people were killed, and 39 others were wounded in shootings on the bloody streets of Chicago. The summer is ending, and it’s been a tough one, despite a double-digit drop-in shootings and homicides during the months of July and August, over the summer months I covered 5 Mass shootings were at least five or as high as 8 were shot at one time.

This year has been a deadly one for the women of Chicago, 44 have been killed and 231 were wounded in shootings, but the big number is the amount of men that were shot this year, 304 men and teens were killed, and 1337 were wounded in shootings only 9 months into the year.

Over the summer time in Chicago a person is shot every 3 hours and a person is killed every 16 hours, the homicide clearance rate is a dismal 9.5% out of the 294 homicides only 28 suspects were charged and no suspects have been charged in the remaining 266 homicides to date. I understand CPD was short almost 300 detectives last year, and I am well aware it takes time to train new detectives, but this clearance rate needs to move up not down, like it has been, putting New detectives on should be top priority, by the brass of the CPD.

The Chicago police have had a very difficult last week of summer a Veteran of the fugitive unit was shot three times and was critically wounded, and another cop was also injured in the west Englewood incident. A couple of hours earlier 2 cops were critically injured and dragged by a fleeing vehicle in Bronzeville, and then there were two suicides, 40-year-old Paul Escamilla a highly decorated police officer was found dead in a north side forest preserve. A 61-year-old retired Chicago police officer was found with a gunshot wound to the head on the south side. People need to realize cops are human beings too and some struggle with the extreme pressure that comes with this difficult job they do every day……..

So far this year there have been 2100 people shot 361 have been killed and 1738 have been wounded and there have been 9 police involved shootings that left 5 dead and 4 wounded.
