CTA Brown Line train and Chicago police squad collide on NW Side - Officer said to be OK

Initial reports claim the female police officer was in a rush to make a fingernail polishing appointment and didn't want to be late...
Cars vs. Trains usually are fatal accidents... Let's thank the Lord the officer was not seriously injured.

An unmarked Chicago police squad car and a CTA Brown Line train collided this afternoon on Kedzie Avenue just north of Wilson Avenue, officials said.

The accident happened about 4 p.m. and involved an Albany Park tactical unit police vehicle and a CTA Brown Line train, according to police sources.

Preliminary reports said the gates were down for a Loop-bound train and when the train passed, the vehicle went around the gates not expecting the Kimball-bound train, according to a CTA spokeswoman. The vehicle and the Kimball-bound Brown Line train collided, she said. Brown Line tracks run at ground level from the Rockwell to Kimball stops.

A shuttle bus is running between the Kimball and Southport stations until service resumes, the spokewoman said.

Mayor’s Office Employee Arrested Twice For Allegedly Soliciting Sex

When Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel holds a news conference, Gene Mc Neil is the city employee who makes sure the sound system runs smoothly.

But the veteran city employee was a little too smooth with the ladies, police reports indicate.

Mc Neil was arrested twice since 2005 for allegedly soliciting undercover cops who were posing as prostitutes. One of those arrests came while he was on the clock for taxpayers, he acknowledged.

Mc Neil, 55, was not convicted in either case; the arresting officers didn’t show up for some reason, so the cases were thrown out, court records show.

Reached just before a mayoral news conference a few weeks ago, Mc Neil said the arrests were misunderstandings. He said he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

In 2005, Mc Neil was arrested for allegedly soliciting oral sex for $10, court records show. In 2007 he allegedly offered $25 for sex, records show. In the second instance, Mc Neil relayed to us that he was on the clock and en route to buy a newspaper when a woman approached him on the street and starting walking with him.

Referring to the Chicago Police Department, he said, “I understand they’re trying to get their numbers up. . . . I didn’t make any overtures.”

Whatever the truth, it’s interesting to consider Mc Neil’s proximity to a politician known for such a carefully crafted image.

When asked about Mc Neil, an Emanuel press aide said this was the first she heard of his troubles. But within an hour, word came down that Mc Neil was being transferred to other duties, at least for the time being.

Mc Neil, who’s been on the government payroll for 25 years and worked for Richard M. Daley as well, has a salary of about $84,000 a year.

So fucking stupid. What were you chasing her for? DOPW? CTTL? A fucking rock in her cunt? Wake the fuck up. You could have gotten someone killed besides your own stupid ass self. NONE of this shit is worth getting hurt or killed over. I repeat... NONE OF IT. Do your job but do it fucking SAFELY for fuck sake so you and everyone else around you can go home to their loved ones when the circus tour is over for the night.

Saw the car on the news and the officer is very lucky to walk away. Don't matter who you are chasing and for what there will always be another day to catch the jagoffs. Main thing is YOU go home safe. Drive safely to get to your call.

Remember other newsworthy CPD screw ups?

EX: Christine Hitney? She fucked up bigtime (midway-southwest airline crash)and after the news died down she was promoted.

did she just give her partner a BJ?

You have to be a stone Dimwit to run smack into the side of a train. Where does CPD find so many of these dizzy broads? They will probably promote her now to a higher level of incompetence, per Chicago Values.

I know, I know, the train didnt pull to the right for the siren and lights....

Give her 30 days for breaking a law. She could have hurt many people on that train. No excuse for this one. Preventable all the way.

What fucking arrest could be worth going around a train gate? What a fucking moron.

Per Fire Dept 30 to 40 passengers on the train not injured.

That'll change by Monday morning with that gash from Channel 7 Eric Horng reporting about the lawsuits. That dude HATES the police.

If this broad is a rug muncher watch this ridiculous preventabel accident go away.

Reminds me of the Korean broad that made a quadriplegic out of a horse trainer on the Eisenhower about twelve years ago. She refused to testify, spurned the Corp Counsel and the City of Chicago paid 18 Million Dollars out to make it go away.

That was to keep the peace with the Korean community and make it go away. She cost the City 18 MILLION DOLLARS, refused to testify at the civil suit and didn't even take a day for a preventable traffic accident that almost killed her partner.


This City and the CPD are FUCKED!

I think the officer who did this potentially suicidal act should be terminated. I wonder what it cost the city, having all this emergency equipment on the scene, adding shuttle buses? They should get canned. How stupid can you be?
