CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Remember the amazing report that a loaded gun was found at Ivy Hill Elementary School, 2211 North Burke Drive on Sunday, October 29, 2017? The gun, described as a mini .22 revolver, was found outside of Ivy Hill School near the flagpole.

We learned from the Arlington Heights police that …

the video showed the offender take the gun out of his pants pocket,

the offender was captured on surveillance video placing the gun near the flagpole,

the video captured the offender looking over his shoulder, leaving by running away,

the offender was described wearing a white hoodie sweatshirt, black pants, and

the GUN WAS FOUND LOADED WITH 5 ROUNDS.

Now police say that the video showed a second individual that was not the owner of the gun. This information was apparently assimilated when the owner of the gun came forward Tuesday, October 31, 2017 to claim ownership of the gun. The 57-year-old man told police the gun fell out of his pocket while he was walking his dog. Police added that the quality of the video prevented investigators from confirming what was removed from the man’s pocket when the object was placed by the flagpole. Hmmm, wonder what was placed by the flagpole. Apparently, the quality of the video was good enough to rule out that the man claiming ownership of the gun was the same man near the flagpole, captured in the surveillance video.

No charges were filed against the gun owner, who had a valid firearm owner’s identification (FOID) card and a concealed carry permit.

TO THE IRRESPONSIBLE GUN OWNER:

How do you NOT notice the weight of the gun exiting your pants pocket?
(an object that requires your total attention)

How do you NOT hear the gun hit the ground?

How does your dog NOT notice something fell to the ground and go sniff it?

How do you NOT come home and realize your loaded mini .22-caliber revolver is not in your possession after your Sunday morning walk with the dog?

If you noticed the gun missing after walking your dog, how do you NOT retrace your path and not look for the gun where it might have fallen?

As a “responsible” gun owner, how do more than 36 hours pass before you report to the police that your gun is missing — possibly in a public place?

How were you NOT concerned that your gun could be used in a crime, or someone could have been accidentally injured or killed by the misplaced gun?

How do you NOT learn from concealed carry class, that it is not a good idea to carry a loaded gun in your pants pocket instead of a holster while walking your dog.

TO DISTRICT 25:

Install better resolution night-capable cameras at your elementary schools, so real threats can be investigated with better tools.

Something is NOT right about this case … NOT believing it.

 IMPORTANT ALERT … 

Cardinal Note: As of June 5, 2013 — up to and including the date of this article — police incidents related to the above police agency are not reported in real time or within a prompt time period. Police protecting their realm of investigation and police activity, have chosen to use secret military-grade encrypted radios to withhold their police communications, which were previously open to the public and news media via monitoring of public safety scanning radios — with no known negative results locally.

The delayed knowledge or entirely blacked out knowledge resulting from encrypted police communications may protect certain police operations and investigations, but it also puts the public at risk in situations such as when armed and dangerous offenders are at large and when other similar situations occur, such as when desperate offenders of property crimes are eluding police. In other cases, the delayed or blacked out information inhibits or prohibits the possibility of the public providing early witness accounts before a criminal trail goes cold. Citizens are much more likely to recognize or recall suspicious or criminal activity if they are aware of the criminal incident within minutes or hours of its occurrence. The most serious incident involving dire results would be a trail that is allowed to go cold in the case of child abduction.

The lack of real time information from public police dispatch also weakens an effective neighborhood watch program mostly working to prevent property loss, but also working to prevent possible violent crimes.

Lack of real time information from police dispatch also delays public awareness or eliminates public awareness of general hazards and traffic or other situations in every day living in an otherwise economically thriving community.

Police have alternate ways to transmit tactical, operational or investigative information, while still keeping their main public dispatch channels open for the best balance of public safety and police safety.
