Where’s the public outcry over Chicago 13-year-old rapper Lil' Mouse

Let me answer this reporters own question... The reason there is no OUTCRY is because in the black ghetto neighborhoods gangsters, thugs, criminals, murderers, shooters, drug dealers and other pieces of shit are FUCKING IDOLIZED! These same shitheads elect gang bangers and criminals for public offices. A thug who shot a cop gets more respect in the colored neighborhoods than a father who works for a living and takes care of his children... it's that plain and simple. You want to see an OUTCRY... lock up this asshole rapper's momma and dadda... or take away their LINK CARD... then there will be an OUTCRY!

CHICAGO, IL - When a 13-year-old boy shows up in a rap video cursing like a grown man, flashing money and posing with a gun, his parents and other adults involved are morally bankrupt.

Unfortunately, there has been no public outcry over a raunchy video titled “Lil Mouse Get Smoked” that debuted on YouTube on July 4, and has since Blo wn up the Internet. Nearly 300,000 people have viewed it, making the 13-year-old the latest rap sensation to come out of Chicago.

Known as “Lil Mouse,” the baby-faced rapper repeatedly drops “Fuck” and “Nigger” bombs in a music video that glorifies sex, drugs and violence. At one point, an adult male gets behind the teen and makes it look like the teen is holding the gun. On popular music video sites, the teen, who allegedly lives in Roseland, is being promoted as the “13-year-old rapper from the Wild, Wild Hundreds.”

The gangster-style music video is even more profane when you consider that Chicago is desperately trying to reduce gang- and drug-related violence that helped push the homicide rate up nearly 40 percent and claimed the lives of so many of the city’s children.

Here’s just a sample of what “Lil Mouse” has to say:

“I’m rollin’, all my niggers rollin’

.30 clip and them hollow tips have his a-- sitting in Roseland

Floating off a pill, pussy bad’ll kill

My niggers in the field; you might get killed….

Melly got the .30 on his hip, he gone need some help

I’m a gangster, nnigger, and I could do this suck my fucking self”

When this kind of filth comes out of a child’s mouth, there’s no one to blame but the parents. Obviously, in neighborhoods where people are struggling to get by, having a kid break into the music industry is huge.

Still, there is such a thing as going too far and “Get Smoked” is a good example of where too far takes us. When young black males were exploited by the music industry to promote the gangster lifestyle, most of us said nothing.

Now the industry is hooking teenagers.

“This warrants an investigation,” said Che “Rhymefest” Smith, a Chicago rapper who ran a spirited but unsuccessful campaign for alderman in the 20th Ward.

“This has clearly crossed over into child pornography when you have a 13-year-old child rapping about sex and about violence and drug selling. They are probably already under investigation,” he said.

P. Noble, the videographer who shot the video in Roseland, claims “Lil Mouse” wasn’t holding the gun.

“I made sure of it. When I got to the set, I made sure that Mouse did not have any guns or drugs on him,” he told me.

Noble claimed not to know the names of any of the adults involved in making the video but said the boy’s mother and adult uncles were on the set.

“I was hired to do video direction. Somebody called me and I showed up. I didn’t realize a gun was in the video. So much was going on and there were a lot of people behind him. I wasn’t trying to glorify anything,” he said.

The gun is clearly visible in several scenes.

“But a lot of young people in Chicago live and survive in that subculture. It is a sad reality. It’s an epidemic,” Noble concluded.

Chase Davis is listed as the producer of “Get Smoked.” Davis did not return several phone calls.

Rhymefest claims Lil Mouse represents a new “culture of rap music from Chicago that is glorifying violence and drugs.”

“We find that artists who glorify death in Chicago are being rewarded,” he said.

For instance, Chief Keef, another Chicago teen who raps about violence, recently landed a deal with the Interscope record label that is reportedly worth millions.

But last December, the then 16-year-old wasn’t much of a celebrity. In fact, he was a big part of the problem that continues to make life unbearable in some neighborhoods on the South and West Sides.

Keef was arrested in the Washington Park neighborhood when police arrived on the scene and found a suspect pointing a gun at them. Chief Keef was one of two young men arrested. The rapper was charged with unlawful use of a weapon and had to do 60 days of house arrest — at his grandmother’s house, no less — according to a report in the Beachwood Reporter.

“Record labels are exploiting the violence in Chicago at the expense of young people who are being used to do it,” argues Rhymefest, who has publicly taken Chief Keef to task, calling him a spokesman for the “prison industrial complex.”

“This is new for rappers in Chicago,” he said.

“We have to go after the producers and labels and create some way young people can express themselves and be heard,” he said.

“But if guns and bitches is the only thing that is getting attention, then that is what young people are going to do. I am trying to save those artists before they cross over to the dark side.”

To that end, Rhymefest is spearheading “The Pledge Mixtape,” a CD that brings together rappers in Chicago to produce positive music about life as opposed to death.

“We want to highlight positive artists that tell the truth. The majority of young people are not selling drugs. They are not killing each other, and they have aspirations,” Rhymefest said.

“Everybody has a rap and a dream. “Clearly, you don’t need a lot of talent, just a hustle,” he said. “There is some adult barricading these teens, and you have to get around these adults.”

Because of “Get Smoked,” Lil Mouse is not on the corner or hanging on the street, said Noble, who claims his phone has been ringing off the hook with inquiries about the young rapper.

Still, what’s taking place in “Get Smoked” is child exploitation and depicts behavior that is detrimental to the moral development of a child. That can’t be ignored.

Sgt. Craig Bier is 10th NYPD officer wounded

A highly decorated NYPD sergeant was shot in both legs late Wednesday during a gunfight with a suspect fleeing down a Queens alleyway, police said.

Sgt. Craig Bier, a 15-year veteran assigned to the Queens Gang Unit, was the 10th city cop shot this year.

Fellow officers rushed him to Jamaica Hospital in a patrol car, and Bier was expected to make a full recovery from his wounds.

Bier squeezed off a six shots at the gunman, who opened fire on the officer about 10:30 p.m., Mayor Bloomberg said at a hospital news conference early Thursday. Bier suffered gunshot wounds to both thighs. The suspect fled on foot.

“He’s a great guy, funny,” Bier’s 70-year-old mother, Betty, told the Daily News Thursday morning at the officer’s Long Island home. “He was even making jokes about walking out of the (hospital). ... He is very well-liked. He takes his job seriously, and he is a great father.”

Bier is a divorced dad of a 4-year-old boy, family members said. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly visited with Bier in the hospital.

“This is the type of officer that they public should thank God that we have working for the New York City Police Department,” Kelly said at the hospital news conference.

Bier, the son of a retired NYPD detective who met with the mayor and police commissioner at the hospital, has earned 65 NYPD medals — 14 for meritorious police duty — over his career.

"He's the kind of guy that you want out there," Bloomberg said of Bier. "I don't know that I've ever talked to anybody as enthusiastic about his job."

A man grazed in the head by a gunshot turned up a short time later at another hospital and was initially suspected of being the shooter.

But a police source now says detectives aren't sure if that individual is the gunman. A second man, described by another source as a 24-year-old with an arrest record, is now being sought.

Bier, 44, was working in plainclothes and riding with his partner in an unmarked minivan when they left the vehicle and stopped a bicyclist who was “acting suspicious,” Kelly said.

“When he saw the officers, he began to flee in the opposite direction,” Kelly said. “He ran. He got off the bike. He ran down the alley.”

The suspect bolted down a narrow alley between a house and a 10-feet high chain link fence that encloses a parking lot.

Kelly said the suspect apparently scaled the fence and jumped onto the roof of a white van parked in the lot so he could escape onto 107th Ave.

Bier, who had already run back to 107th Ave. to block the suspect's escape, then exchanged fire with the gunman, Kelly said.

Bier's partner, Detective Nicholas Romano, who had been chasing the gunman along the side of a home on Union Hall St., heard the shots and ran to Bier's aid.

The fallen cop was rushed by his colleagues to Jamaica Hospital in a police car. Officer Kyle Miller, a certified emergency medical technician, applied pressure to Bier's wounds during the ride.

Cops later recovered a Ruger 9-mm. semi-automatic handgun behind 167-11 107th Ave. There were still three bullets in the magazine and one in the chamber.

“Another night and another shooting of one of our Finest,” Bloomberg said. “This is the 10th member of the department shot this year.”

There were nine police officers shot between 2008-11, meaning more officers were shot this year than in the previous four years combined.

A witness who lives on the block where the shooting occurred told The News he heard a total of nine shots.

“There were four shots, a pause, one shot, a pause, and then four shots,” said the witness, who would not give his name.

The suspect fled “and tried to get a cab, but the cab took off,” he added.

Cops at the scene conducted a massive search for the suspect, described as a 6-foot-4 black man wearing a white T-shirt, who fled into the rear yard after the shooting, sources said.

“The shooting of New York City police officers is getting to be outrageous,” said Ed Mullins, the head of the Sergeants Benevolent Association. “I really can't encourage our guys enough to do what they have to do to ensure that they go home at night.”

"I honestly believe there's a correlation between the economic downturn and crime," Mullins continued. "And we have less cops than we did 10 years ago and we're also more aggressive as a police department than we used to be."

COP SHOT has posted a $10,000 cash reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the shooter. Callers can remain anonymous and those with information are urged to call (800) COP-SHOT.

Just a day earlier, 10 people were shot in six gang-related incidents overnight Tuesday after Kelly and Bloomberg made their rounds at National Night Out Against Crime, the annual anti-violence event.

Gun violence is on the rise citywide with 1,058 shooting victims this year through Aug. 5, compared to 977 during the same period last year — an 8.3% spike.

Dart and Bilecki blame Sheahan

Tuesday, August 7, 2012              The Cook County Sheriff's Office released this statement regarding the trial:

"This specific case started over six years ago during a previous administration. Not one of the individuals suing the county was fired and some were promoted. It is beyond perplexing that these individuals are suing for more money when they already have had every opportunity for promotion. Sheriff Dart and his office proudly stand on their record."

"The Cook County Sheriff's Office is very proud of the fact that it is the only local government office that has been declared in compliance by the federal courts and therefore is no longer monitored by the courts or their appointed monitors. The office worked hard during the monitoring process and is proud of its ethical integrity. It cannot be stressed enough that this was a federal court decision to free the sheriff's office of the monitor, based on the hard work and policies implemented by the dart administration.

Never Run Over A Police Officer’s Foot

Here’s a piece of advice.
If a cop is standing by your car giving you a parking ticket, do not, we repeat DO NOT, run over the police officer’s foot with your vehicle.
In the video above posted late last week, a certain Mr. Douche of New York City, driving a very expensive red Ferrari, thought his fast car could out race parking ticket being written by an officer of the NYPD.
After gunning the engine, the car lurches forward and allegedly runs over the officer’s foot.
Of course, hilarity ensues.
It turns out Mr. Douche is, according to Reuter’s News Service, some goof dating some vapid reality TV “star” we’ve never heard of and is now alleging the cop faked the incident according to TMZ.
Unfortunately, Mr. Douche is being charged with felony assault, vehicular assault, obstructing governmental administration, disorderly conduct and for wearing a horrible looking purple sweater.
Here’s some more advice.
Never try to walk away from a police officer issuing a ticket. Be respectful, take the ticket and contest it if you feel it was issued unfairly.
Our final piece of advice is to never spend $250,000 on a car. That’s just stupid.

Emanuel All Talk, No Action On Parking Meter Deal

He’s full of crap.
That is essentially the conclusion the Chicago Reader’s Mick Dumke comes to about Rahm Emanuel’s position on the parking meter lease deal in a recent piece.
As you probably know, Emanuel has recently been very outspoken about the nearly $50 million in bills Chicago Parking Meters, LLC has sent the city for over use of disabled parking and for meter closures for the past two years.
He’s very publicly and brashly denounced the bills and says he won’t pay them. Unfortunately for the Mayor, there’s this teeny tiny obstacle to his stance. It’s called a contract.
You remember. That several hundred page document the city paid a big time law firm nearly $700,000 to draft and/or review before former Mayor Daley signed it thus giving away right the parking meters for 75 years. If you go by the contract, CPM has every right to claim the compensation it asks for.
But as Dumke points out, while Emanuel has been publicly against the lease deal, city attorneys have been defending the meter lease deal in court.
You see, back in 2009, the Independent Voters of Illinois-Independent Precinct Organization filed a lawsuit claiming the meter deal was illegal and the contract should be torn up.
