When There’s Blood In The Streets

what terrorism does

I was about to write a post on, Selective Hearing, but before I do  that I’d like to share with you a quote I heard a long time ago but didn’t understand the significance under recently.

And that quote paraphrased a quote by 18th Baron Rothschild.  The good old  – or insightful – Baron Rothschild said, “The time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.”

Baron Rothschild, an 18th century British nobleman and member of the Rothschild banking family, is credited with saying that “The time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.” He should know. Rothschild made a fortune buying in the panic that followed the Battle of Waterloo against Napoleon.

The paraphrase that caught my attention was, “When there’s blood in the streets, there’s money to be made.”

At the time I heard it, I thought that’s ridiculous.  If there’s blood in the streets, no one will be out in the streets.  The sensible people will be  at home.

Duh!

Behind, door locks, door jams, and high end surveillance equipment.

And, If I owned a glass company, I’d be out there hawking my ass off selling bullet proof glass that can be installed in cars and homes!

Or Kevlar car door siding that clips on and off. (Chicago has a lot of Expressway shootings!)

Or double strength steel fence inter lays that can be installed over your existing wrought iron or steel fencing.

And, if you’ve got a gang member in your household, why not insure him or her for as little as $20.00 a month.  (Insurer cannot claim full amount of policy until 2 years of payments have been made.)

And now, you can arrest more people and put more people in jail and make a fortune selling them stuff like, books, magazines, snacks, drinks, toothache medicine, Kotex, INSAIDS, etc.

“When there’s blood in the streets, there’s money to be made.”  Now I understand.

Watch yourself President Trump.  By putting troops on the ground in Chicago, you might just be messing with someone’s money.  And you don’t mess with Chicago people’s money.  Take that piece of advice from someone’s who’s been publicly stalked and humiliated for more than 25 years but has only made the News once in Chicago.

The only thing Andrew Holmes did was try and stop the violence and he paid dearly for that.

Rhymefest On Windy City Live

rhymefest_12-11-2015

 

Tonight, I was watching a rebroadcast of Friday’s Windy City Live which featured Rhymefest(Grammy, Golden Globe, and Oscar winner) who shared his story of being robbed at gunpoint, in Chicago, and trying to report it to the Police.

Up until hearing to his story, I had personalized my experience of trying to report my stalking to the Maywood Police.  I had assumed that I was being treated the way I was because I was a nobody, or so they assumed.

The first time I reported being stalked, I was told that I had suffered a breakdown and had imagined the whole thing.  And I was sent to out-patient therapy where I was drugged.

The second time I went to the Maywood Police, (after losing my secretarial job at Exxon Company U.S.A. in New Orleans, because of the stalking and returning to Illinois), I was told that nobody knew what I was talking about when I complained about being lied to, with regards to the stalking, and drugged and that nothing was going on.

The third time, I sort of lost my temper — after losing yet another job because of the stalking, I told the Police Chief, (not the current one) “that if you can’t find this woman as loud as she’s screaming, then you need a flashlight and a compass to find your ass.”  At that point, he jumped to his feet and put his hands on his gun and so did the other officers in the room.  I, feared for my life at that point, so I left.

But the stalking, and the insults, and the detriment to my family were so great, that I tried several more times (whenever I heard that there was a new Police Chief).  But after reading about theyoung man who was assaulted while in Police custody and listening to mothers of murdered sons testify about how they were treated, when they sought help, I NEVER WENT BACK.

But listening to Ryhmefest’s testimony, now I know that it wasn’t personal, but just how the Police operate  — Chicago and Maywood.

But I still won’t go back.  I have and I will learn to live with the stalking.  Much the same as Chicagoans are learning to live with the gun violence.  Where can we go?

P.S.  And NO, I won’t be in Church on Sunday, because of the stalking.  I’m taking heed of Hebrews 12:15 Amplified Bible Classic Edition

Exercise foresight and be on the watch to look [after one another], to see that no one falls back from and fails to secure God’s grace (His unmerited favor and spiritual blessing), in order that no root of resentment (rancor, bitterness, or hatred) shoots forth and causes trouble and bitter torment, and the many become contaminated and defiled by it—

Gun Control

us-still-divided-on-passing-stricter-gun-control-laws

 

Do you want to see real gun control and by the end of the week.

Then take away the bullet proof glass, the metal detectors, and the  security guards from the entrance to the Congressional Building leaving those boys as vulnerable as they do your children.

How To Survive A Chicago Summer

Chicago police officers investigate a crime scene where 7-year-old Amari Brown was shot and killed in Chicago

If you’ve read my book STALKED! By Voices, you know that I made numerous attempts at getting the Maywood Police to help me rid myself of the individuals who were, and still are, actively stalking me.    That was to no avail, however.

And when I was smart enough to realize that The Maywood Police were not about to help me, I turned to lawyers, Luther Franklin Spence and Cochran, Montgomery & Cherry.   That also did not work.

So, then I turned to the Illinois State Police.  That led to the Illinois State Police coming in and trying to figure out what the hell the Police and Village were up to, which only led to several drug arrests and a reshuffling of Village responsibilities, but the stalkers remained.

Finally, I called the local chapter of the FBI.  The agent who answered my call, informed me that he couldn’t start a case for me until he heard from my local Police.  I told him what was happening or rather not happening there and he was quiet on the phone for a while and then he said, “Well, I still can’t do anything about the stalking, but I can give you some tips on staying alive until I hear from the local cops.

With summer in Chicago fast approaching, I’d like to share with you some of his advice.

First, don’t have regular set times when you come and go.  (This is one of the hardest to keep).  Vary your times and entrance points to your house or apartment.

When you’ve been out of your house for some hours, be very careful about re=entering the apartment.  Make sure you turn on some lights and make sure you are alone before you lock the door.    But never, never, never, never, enter the apartment and leave your door unlocked.

And if you have stalkers, like I do, make sure you clean your toothbrushes before you use them (it only takes one time to forget this rule and you’ll never forget it again.  The pain in your gut will feel like you’re being ripped apart).

Don’t leave half-filled bottles of wine or pop in your fridge and come home and drink it.  (Same thing as above or worse).

When you’re driving, stay aware of what cars are around you.  Don’t get overly distracted by the radio or who’s in the car with you.

Don’t pull up to close to the car in front of you.   Leave some space.  This will give you some room to maneuver.

Don’t pull up window to window with the car in the next lane or let them pull up window to window with you.   If the other car does pulls up window to window, either move forward a little or back a little (provided the car in back of you is not on your bumper).

Just before you reach your destination, double check your rear view mirror and make sure you’re not being followed.  If you think you are, circle the block and come back around.

Also, if you can, safely, call the person you’re visiting and let them know you are almost to their house, so they can put a light on outside.

Now, when you are out partying this summer in the clubs KEEP YOUR OPINIONS YOURSELF about other people’s clothes, hair, looks, boyfriends, or girlfriends.

Don’t try and hijack another person’s date, even if they’re willing to go with you.  Better to leave that to another time and place.

When you are leaving the Club, don’t stand around outside talking, laughing, and joking.   Get in your cars and LEAVE.   I can’t stress this one enough.

Now, the following is not from the FBI, but some common sense things I’ve learned over the years.

If you are caught in cross fire, don’t run, unless you’re being chased.  Instead, fall on the ground where you are.

It’s cooler in the dark.  Don’t have every light on in your apartment. You’re safer when people (on the outside) can’t tell where you are in the house or the apartment.

And be aware, that they will listen for the sound of the TV.  So, if you live in a high crime area and you want to watch TV, make yourself a pallet on the floor or don’t put your chair opposite the windows.

And for God’s sake, stop taking young kids to the park after midnight.  They won’t understand what to do when the bullets start flying and they can’t run as fast as you to keep up.

And don’t forget, Stranger Danger

One last point, if you are out an about and in the background of your day or afternoon, you’re constantly hearing the wail of emergency sirens, go home.  It’s the sound of a dangerous night.

STAY AWARE   STAY SAFE
