A Chilling Photo

I’ve written before about understanding and deciphering gang graffiti, though it’s been a while. You might want to go back and read those two posts, as they’ll help you better understand this photo:

This photo from Chicago, Illinois – courtesy of the invaluable Second City Cop blog – is one of the most chilling things I’ve ever seen, and a very graphic demonstration of just how ridiculously screwed up that city is right now.

“CPDK”. In the patois of the streets, a trailing “K” after something means “kill”, or “killers”. It’s a threat, a boast. Bragging. Taunting.

CPD Killers. Or, if you prefer, Kill CPD.

Yes, lowlifes in Chicago are tagging buildings – and apparently even wearing t-shirts – saying Kill the Chicago Police Department… and doing so with, basically, complete impunity.

That’s so screwed up, I can’t even begin to describe it. Words fail me, they really do.

    Original CPDK….I know who you are! Guess what Mike Vega was a convicted Felon who stole a car, got high on methamphetamine, got into a high speed chase, and tried to KILL a police officer by running him down.

    As for you and your hollow threats to attack me and my family….We know who you are. We will always be watching you! God help you if you come into Concord or anywhere near me or my family! I have over 100 brothers in blue!

    As for this thread you IDIOT….CPDK has been around for years in Chicago you fucking moron! You didn’t start shit!

    CPDK has been around in chicago ATLEAST since the 90′s. nothing to do with califoria. acyrnoms in chicago for different gangs: CPDK, EBK, GDK, SDK, LEK, IPK, LKK, BPSNK etc. theres tons of variations, they mainly refer to killing gangs..gangster disciple killer, satan disciple killer, latin eagle killer, insane pope killer, latin king killer, black p stone killer. AND THE LIST GOES ON, EVERY GANG OUTTA THE 100s of cliques has one basically. its used by rival gangs to basically diss/warn their rivals that they will basically shoot on site.
