Scanner Reports 8-5-20

By Roger the Scanner Guy

I used to hate cops when I was a kid. My first experience with cops was when the neighbors called them on my Father for beating my mom, a sister and me, and telling us what went on in the home was family business not the business of the police. A couple of years later my Mom took me to the clinic for injuries my Father gave me from a beating. He shoved me down the basement stairs. I went headfirst into a pole knocking me out and I broke my arm from the fall. The same 2 cops responded to the clinic as it was obvious I was a victim of child abuse. I told the doctor that I fell down the stairs, I told the police the same thing and added “It’s none of your business it’s family business, not your business.” I was an angry little shit I had been getting beat by my father since the age of 4. I remember that first beating like it was yesterday, 58 Years ago on Christmas Eve he kept punching me in the face, I remember all my beatings. I remember when he burst my appendix almost killing me that time I was 8 years old then. I was so afraid of everything, I constantly walked on eggshells, not just around him but every one. I got bullied in school when I finally fought back, almost killing two other kids in school. When my Dad suddenly died one day a kid in school told me my Mother was a whore, I hit him so hard over the head with a chair one of the chair legs went into his skull like a bullet. I still remember trying to yank the chair out of his head, he lived got a metal plate in his head. Suddenly everything I did became police business and to them, I was guilty of every crime they could not solve involving violence and juveniles. I was questioned for crimes I had nothing to do with but everyone thought since the cops  were on my tail I was guilty. I hated cops more, everyone was afraid of me even the bullies in school none of them went after me alone they all ganged up on me for beatdowns I started to enjoy the pain of a good beating. I started cutting myself with razor blades, I liked the pain and the sight of my own blood. It was like getting a massage. After a while even my Mom was scared of me.

The Summer after my Dad died I went to a Military School Summer camp where I got raped. I did not even know what sex was my first experience with it was getting raped. In the Fall I was sent to another military school where it happened again after a few months I was thrown out for several acts of violence. Back Home I was enrolled in Public school where I joined a gang committed burglaries, fought, I had started sneaking drinks of alcohol at 7 years of ago but at 14 I was really pounding the shit between hitting the liquor closet at home and shoplifting. Back then there were flavored Vodkas, it was like Koolaid between that and Mad Dog 20-20. I  got caught busting into the school and thrown out. I got in a gang fight and got stabbed in my armpit it hurt like hell. Everyone was afraid of me I was unwanted at home so I ran away. HitchHiking North on the Borman Expressway my First ride was the drivers last drive as he was the molester whose life I took. 2 Months later I told my Step Uncle about it. He was a detective with the Chicago Police and they investigated it. When he confirmed it he told me to never feel bad for what I did because that guy was questioned in the disappearances of 6 boys who were never found. That was my first positive experience with a cop and I liked them a little better after that. Through the years I have been helped by many cops and I have been arrested a few times too. I did not go straight after that, I liked them a little better. I still broke the law, breaking the law went hand in hand with drinking. I haven’t been in jail since 1999 and I haven’t had a drink since 2003. I have 2 friends who are police officers I consider good friends. One of them arrested me after I committed a burglary, he chased me down and held me at gunpoint after tackling me, it was raining. we both slid into a puddle of stanky water at Haley and Castillo that was back in 1980, I am done fighting the Law…HERE are YOUR SCANNER REPORTS.

  1. Hope this is not a pre-obit? Hopefully you are clearing out all “viruses of humanity” that struck you in the heart and ruined a promise of childhood. As a former idealistic and competent Social Worker who fought against the system for kids like you, I commend your arrival to a level of service and sanity rarely possible with such a path of hidden pain. A kinda “mask” we wear. So many stories like this, but you have the whole kitchen sink of sick possibilities.
    Thank you for sharing–venting-will help so many victimized, and victimizing others to cope with horror they are facing. Blessings seem stupid — please receive them . Cops often have the same backdrop and survive as well. We hope for compassion as they are horribly assaulted now–even to the death?
